An Inconsolable Loss

Allah says in Quran:

وَٱلۡعَصۡرِ إِنَّ ٱلۡإِنسَٰنَ لَفِي خُسۡرٍ إِلَّا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ وَعَمِلُواْ ٱلصَّٰلِحَٰتِ وَتَوَاصَوۡاْ بِٱلۡحَقِّ وَتَوَاصَوۡاْ بِٱلصَّبۡرِ

By Al‑‘Aṣr (the time). Verily, man is in loss, Except those who believe and do righteous good deeds, and recommend one another to the truth [i.e. order one another to perform all kinds of good deeds (Al‑Ma‘rūf) which Allāh has ordained, and to abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds (Al‑Munkar) which Allāh has forbidden], and recommend one another to patience (for the sufferings, harms, and injuries which one may encounter in Allāh’s Cause during preaching His religion of Islam or Jihād).

Surah Al-Asr: Ayah 1-3

  • Time is like a sword, if you don’t cut it, it will cut you.
  • If your time is blessed, you can accomplish in a day what others can’t in a week. Guard your time. Use it wisely. And be clear and sincere about what you’re pursuing with it.
  • May Allah bless you with victory in this life and eternal life too.
