Human beings strive for two things in their lives. Good health and more free time to do things. The irony of life is that we want to have more money with more free time and good health but we do not realize that we often let our health deteriorate in the process of earning more. Good health and free time are two most important blessings from Allah which are not utilized by us in am effective way. We do not even realize that what these two blessings are given for. We use them in our worldly affairs and forget the true essence of it.
Allah has given us good health so that we can worship Him more. Allah has commanded all Muslims to pray at least five times a day. The Salah or Prayer itself is a form of physical exercise. A person needs to be physically fit in order to perform all sections of the Salah. A sick person would not be able to perform Salah as taught by our Holy Prophet (PBUH). Though Allah has given exceptions for the ones who are not well but when we are physically fit, we often do not pray. We only value our good health after we lose it. We need to start giving value to good health because it is the most important blessing from Allah.
The second biggest blessing from Allah is to have free time. In today’s world, we have become so busy that we do not even get time to sleep properly. This means that we have indulged in worldly affairs so much that we do not realize the importance of having time for worship. Even of we do get some free time, we either spend it by watching TV or play a game. Never have we realized that Allah has blessed us with free time to worship Him. Free time needs to be used solely for worshipping Allah. If we do not spend our free time doing what Allah has asked us to do then we might have to bear the consequences which would be harsh. So before we lose any time and good health, we need to stay focused on the tasks our Lord has given us to do. As
The Prophet (PBUH) said: “There are two blessings about which most people are deceived, Health and spare time.”
