Aligning Our Time to Life’s Purpose and Priorities

Are we making the best use of our time in this life? Are we to simply pass our time in whatever way possible so that we can get to the hereafter? How are we to balance our time across various aspects of this life? Is there a right balance? Are our life’s priorities purpose driven?

These are some of the questions we Muslims ought to ask ourselves to get the most from our lives. It matters because we have at best only a few years to live. Considering the various phases of our lives individually, the available time is even shorter. Have you thought whether you will be satisfied when you get to the end of the road? Will you do things differently if you know how much time you have left? What if your remaining time is very little?

Time is passing us quickly – and as it does, we should ask ourselves whether we have much to show for it. Are we fulfilling both our religious and worldly responsibilities? Are our families getting our fair share or is it all about other matters? Are we balancing our time across all other obligations? Are we even conscious about how we use our time?

An-Nafi (The Propitious, The Benefactor, The Source of Good) – Allah’s / Gods’ Name

Time is therefore one of the most valuable assets that we have. Being wise in the use of that asset is thus only prudent. Time is one of the many things that Allah has used to swear by in the Quran (verse 1 of Surah Al-Asr). The Prophet, too, told us to use time to make the most of certain assets before time takes it away from us. He (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

“Make the most of five things before five others: LIFE before death, HEALTH before sickness, FREE TIME before becoming busy, YOUTH before old age, and WEALTH before poverty.” [Saheeh al-Jaami’, no. 1077.]

islamic wisdom

Those who have run out of time will tell us its value. Ask the old who have nearly run out of time or ask the terminally ill who have been given only a few months to live. They will tell us how productive they would get if they got more time.

The reality is that our lives are too busy and daily routines too engaging to make us pause to assess what we are earning or opportunities that we are missing as we pass our allotted time. But here are some of the things we can do to ensure that we use our remaining time in this life effectively.

Be mindful of your purpose in this life

As Muslims, we believe that Allah not only created mankind but clarified their purpose of being here. That may seem quite obvious to some but questions related to the “purpose and meaning of life” have been grappled by western and non-Muslim philosophers for centuries. The foundation of our Islamic beliefs thus does away the need to get entangled in the philosophical innuendos of the topic. Islamic principles make it clear that Allah created life, this universe, and the rules that embody it. And mankind is to worship Him by submitting to those rules.

An-Nur (The Light) – Allah’s / Gods’ Name

Amongst the many, consider the following three verses –

islamic life purpose

“And I (Allah) created not the jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me (Alone)” [al-Dhaariyaat 51:56].

my prayers salat for Allah

“Say (O Muhammad): Verily, my Salaah (prayer), my sacrifice, my living, and my dying are for Allah, the Lord of the ‘Aalameen (mankind, jinn and all that exists)” [al-An’aam 6:162]

return to Allah

“Did you think that We had created you in play (without any purpose), and that you would not be brought back to Us?” [al-Mu’minoon 23:115]

Needless to explain but a sense of purpose can help in reconciling the many complex questions and issues that aren’t always that easy for us to comprehend. It helps in imbuing the energy that we need to keep moving irrespective of the challenges that we face and to adhere to a system of living that we believe was designed by the Creator for His Creation.

Become more action oriented

As straightforward as it may seem, there is something inherently complex about taking action in life that prevents many from failing to accomplish enough. Ask yourself if you could have accomplished more by this time in your life by taking more actions in the past? What is it that stopped you from accomplishing more? As it turns out, many of us fall victims to procrastination, never ending planning, or simply failing to have the discipline or courage to decide to act at the right time. The result is that time passes without us accomplishing much or not as much as we could have.

As Muslims, we will be judged on what we do. Our faith is incomplete without us following up on it through actions. There are many places in the Quran where the mention of faith is coupled with the need to take action. Consider these verses from Quran:

human in loss

1. By Al-Asr (the time).

2. Verily! Man is in loss,

3. Except those who believe (in Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, and recommend one another to the truth (i.e. order one another to perform all kinds of good deeds which Allah has ordained, and abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which Allah has forbidden), and recommend one another to patience.

In another place in the Quran, Allah warns us about putting our words into practice. He says in the Quran,

say-dont-do

“O you who believe! Why do you say that which you do not do? Most hateful it is with Allâh that you say that which you do not do” [al-Saff :2-3]

By refocusing to become more action oriented will help us in accomplishing more and thus make life more fulfilling.
dua life hereafter from quran

Don’t concern yourself with unnecessary matters

Today, we find ourselves exposed to a wide range of information outlets waiting to distract us from key priorities. Between the Internet, satellite TV and various forms of staying connected, we can end up wasting useful time soaking our minds with information that we usually can do without. While a lot of such information may satiate our curiosities and gossipy habits, they take up valuable time and drain our energies – both of which can instead be used to gain the right knowledge, fulfill our responsibilities, and in taking useful actions. Remember what the prophet said:

“From the perfection of a person’s Islam is that he leaves alone that which does not concern him. (Reported From Abu Hurairah – Tirmidhee (no.2318) and others)

So, as various media channels provide us with the opportunity to get plugged in to a world of information and knowledge, we must become selective in its use based on what benefits us.

Islamic site

Don’t forget the daily remembrance of Allah

Many of us make the mistake of taking advice about remembering Allah as merely a spiritual one and seeing no connection with the real world. Instead, we should remind ourselves that our success in this life (related to our work, earnings, family, health, etc.) is tied to the remembrance of Allah (in prayers and at other times as well during the day). Consider what Allah tells us in the Quran:

wazkroo-Allah

“…and seek the Bounty of Allah, and remember Allah much, that you may be successful” [part of the verse of Surah al-Jumu’ah 62:10]

quran stories ibn kathir

In another verse, He says:

ayah-munafiqoon-zikr-Allah

O you who beleive! Let not your properties or your children divert you from the remembrance of Allah. And whosoever does that, then they are the losers. [Surah Al-Munafiqoon 63:9]

The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) also said:

Should I not inform you of the best of deeds, and the most sanctifying of deeds before your Lord, which does more to raise your positions (with Him), and is better for you than the disbursement of gold and money, or battle with the enemy?” They (the companions) said: “Indeed inform us.” He (SAW) then said: “Remembrance of Allah.” [Narrated by At-Tirmidhi, 5/459; Ibn Maajah, 2/1245]

Taking the time to pause often and reassessing of how we use our time can help us refocus, reprioritize and reenergize. It can also prevent us from going to extremes where we focus on certain priorities of life more than others. It is thus time to reflect these principles in our actions and accomplishments.

  • suleman Mohamed

    Yaa Rabb.
    Guide us all to your path for you know we are weak!
    An inculcative article, may the author and all us Muslims be guided.

  • This is the essence of taqwa, i.e., being conscious of Allah, Azza Wa Jal. Everything we do should be with the intention of pleasing our creator. It should be compliant with the shariah, the sunnah as well as the aqeedah and the manhaj of Ahl-ul-Sunnah wa Jam’ah: the ways, understanding, and methodology of the rigtheous precessors.

  • neli

    Wow the article could not have been sent to me at a more appropriate time than now!!! I now have a clear knowledge of exactly what I have to do next! Thank you so much.

  • Shaikh Tanveer

    Really the very good one, actually we as a Muslim forgot our duties and priorities and the peoples other than muslims are following the teachings of Quran and getting the success and peace in their lives. I read many personality development and management books along with Islamic books and found whatever written in those books is already there before 1400 years in Quran and Mohammed SAW teachings (Sunnah).
    May Allah SWT benefit the Author and the reader from this article, Amin.

  • Hajj Jawdat

    Great article should be read by everyone

  • Md Ilias Rasel

    Alhamdulillah. A very nice, informative and also motivational article. May Allah give the writer due return. I just want to say that we have very less time in our hand and we should not waste it carelessly. Life of this world is the one and only chance to grasp the success in hereafter by pleasing Allah in this life. We should not be fool enough to miss this chance. May Allah show us the right path. Ameen

  • Raheela firdous

    this topic is really insightfull, and its my pray to Allah (SWT) THAT WE SHOULD ALL FIRST STOP FOR 5 MINUTES and ask our self that are we doing the right with the ones we love or claim to do?
    Are we really honest with each other or just fulfilling another wrong will?

    This is what Quran tells us to do, if we have to make the most of our time and wealth, health or some thing to dedicate.
    and ofcourse Quran is not just a bundle of pages the orders it reveals on all of us like pray five time and fasting and so many others, we must should do that as well, but also first is the rights of people who belong to us.

    regards and salam,

    Every so often, I will get an email from IqraSense about some Islamic topic. What I have discovered is, strangely, the emails so far seem to address exactly the issue that I was seeking guidance about. It’s strange, but then not really. Allah provides for us from whence we know not.
    Thank you for the article.

  • Fahra

    Alhamdulillah, your article really emphasises the state of our community at the moment. Everyone is so distracted by the glitz and glamour of this worldy life that they forget our purpouse. The shaytaan has created all these worldly things in order to lead us astray. May Allah (SWT) guide us to the straight path, InshAllah.

  • Shuran lakum wa jaza kumu’Llah Khaira.
    What a thought provoking piece of nasiha! very interesting and guiding the mind of the faithfuls. It a well encompassing write up that should not just be read and allowed to drain out. The greatest challenge of the muslim world is the factor of time utilisation and management, and that is the bane of our Ummah, Shaitan the accursed and his followers have devised various means of distraction. It is the help of Allah SWT that such write up are available, this may serve as panecia to this challenge. I thank the writer and pray that it will be of benefit to all of us.

  • Thank you so much for the articles ‘tawakkul’ and ‘aligning our time to life’s purpose.’

    JazakAllah khair for sharing importance of time with Quranic verses and sayings of Prophet (SAW)

    i would like to add three more verses;

    Truly, Allah does not change the condition of people until they change what is in themselves. 13:11

    He has certainly succeeded who purifies himself (from Evil/what is against teachings of Islam) -87:14

    Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. ‘ It will have the consequence of what good it has gained, and it will bear the consequence of what evil it has earned.’-2:286

    regards

    Thank you for such a good piece of advice. I love reading arabic books especially the Quran and Hadith and good stories of prophets etc. so that we can inculcate in us their way of life, sacrifice etc. without which they could not have been closer to God. I have read a book on time management but still not following 100%, but article like you sent me has really enlightened. I was not understanding interpretation of Quran properly. Now, I have downloaded audio and script and going through on the PC, which I am able to follow at least 60%. I would be very happy if you could continue to send such pieces of information.

  • Diane

    One way to remember Allah is by saying Bismillah before all that we do that way we can decipher if what we are doing is for the sake of Allah. If it is not for the sake we will at least know would know if we benefit from our actions. Example, Bismillah before studying for an exam your career which can be an act of worship depending on what you are doing as a career, or Bismillah before before one goes Shopping for a Benz.
    I love the piece I just read because I was in a procrastinating state right before I read it and know I have made my decision to take two years off to learn The Qur’an before I go to college to pursue my career. Bismilliah to both!

  • Our religion’s emphasis on discipline is illustrated clearly by Salaat. At regular intervals and in a compact manner.

    This was a very good article. I have heard the saying so many times, “we only live once so enjoy life”. But we are not on this world to enjoy life but we are completing a test as to how we act in this life. We are so busy with the cooking and cleaning and at the end of the day we forget so many things that we could have done. If you cant read quran during the day you can still listen to it and learn, or even listen to a hadith. I think sometimes we just drift away from the remeberance of Allah and are to busy we our worldly needs. I am going to make a list of good things that I want to achieve every day and make it my daily routine Insallah!!

  • Allaahu Akbar!! so often I want to do this, or do that, and I end up doing the other thing or nothing. Of late, I have decided to make use of this time that I am no longer in school, and unemployed.

    I have started the process to return to school in the Fall (insha’Allah), and seeking employment since returning to my home town, 6 months ago. I have decided to take this down time to get my Islamic house in order. This article simply re-affirms I have decided on the right path. More Islamic reading/learning, more focused attention to my Deen and it’s practices.

    Thank you so much for keeping me reminded of my Lord daily, hourly too. I am nothing without my Lord, Allaah (SWT) and I can do nothing without my Rabb. I turn off the t.v. stay off the phone with friends, don’t consume so much junk food to keep me sleeping, and motivated.

    Wow! I feel better, my mind is clearer and I have an interview scheduled for tomorrow. Shukron!!!!

    Wonderful sharing.
    Yes we should not waste our time even a single minute. Life is short and daily what sins we do sometimes we dont know. We should ask Allah to forgive us. To remember Allah is not just our prayers and reading Quran. We can remember Allah in our hearts. We should read Kalima in our heart read Allah names in our heart.while we are in our office or in kitchen we can read duas read names of Allah and Kalima’s.
    May Allah forgive all of us.
    Please pray for me that Allah forgive me and fulfill my desire. INSHALLAH AMEEN

    Assalaam alaykum warahmaturLLAH! May ALLAH bless you and continue with the same efforts to raise this kind of consciousness to Muslim Ummah. Time management is a thing really forgotten by the majority of the Muslims. JazakumuLLAH Khaira,may ALLAH reward you abundantly.

    I’m so grateful to Iqrasense for emailing me articles on a regular basis. All the articles I have been reading have really helped me refocus and evaluate my life. It has also helped strengthen my faith in Allah (swt) even more.
    I am more determined to strive towards correcting my actions and following the correct path that Allah will be pleased with.
    I pray that Allah forgives all the muslim brothers and sisters across the world for our sins and guides all of us to strive in unity towards Islam.
    Every one of us have been created by Allah, we should be grateful and thank Him for the life and everything He has given us (even if we feel its not good for us, or life is difficult). Allah knows exactly whats in our heart and mind, so anytime you feel happy, sad or distresssed just remember Him, have faith in Him and above all beleive in Him and watch how Allah makes miracles happen in your life.

    Dear brothers and sisters in eeman, we all accept the fact that it is a very important and comprehensible article, Time as said is very very important to every one especial we Muslims. So lets not only read this article, enjoy the beautiful grammar and then sit back and cross our legs without attempting to put into practice what we read. As stated in the article we Muslims should be action oriented, Taking action to this article will be a step in the right direction.
    Lets all help to uplift our dear religion, Then best thing that can happen to any human being is Islam. May we be Muslims of action and not word, may Allah subhanahuu Wa ta’alah help up to fulfill each of our every move in Islam and in our daily lives as Muslims, may he give us the strength, eeman, and the ability to what is wright and prevent us from the wrong.
