The Value of One Second

Drop of water on a tiny flower

To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who has failed a grade.
To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.
To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.
To realize the value of ONE DAY, ask a daily wage labourer who has kids to feed.
To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the bride who is waiting to meet her groom.
To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who has missed the train.
To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask a person who has avoided an accident.
To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask the person who has won a silver medal in the Olympics.

Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more because shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time…. and remember that time waits for no one……

Yesterday is history…..
Tomorrow a mystery……
Today is a gift. That is why it is called the Present.

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: “Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, said: ‘The son of Adam displeases Me by abusing Dahr (Time), whereas I am Dahr, since in My hand are the day and the night.'” – Al-Bukhari, Book 27

    Asalam Alaikum. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your articles. I have benefited alot from this subhanallah. I have my friend who was nervous about the sins she committed and it made her depressed and so miserable all day and night, until I sent her one of your articles about how Allah (s.w) knows we are prone to sin, and he will forgive us inchallah.
    SUBHANALLAH. YOU ARE A BLESSING. MAY ALLAH (SUBHANA WA TAALA) GRANT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY AND JAME UMMATI MUHAMMAD JANNAT AL FIRDAUS. AMEEN.

    Your sister in islam, Maryam.

    Please keep on posting.

    Salam alaikum.

      Thank you so much Maryam. Jazaki Allah khayr. Your words mean a lot to me. I’ve been kind of stuck lately. I want to write, but I’ve been dealing with some personal issues. I need to make some life changes, then maybe it will free up my soul to write some more.
