Your YOUTH before your OLD AGE,
Your HEALTH before your SICKNESS,
Your WEALTH before your POVERTY,
Your FREE-TIME before you are PREOCCUPIED,
& Your LIFE before your DEATH."
Surely, this Hadeeth is few in words but holds a great meaning for those who understand and ponder.
In this narration by ibn Abbas we are asked to take the benefit of five things before the occurrence of five things.
May Allah give us the ability to understand the value of time and take benefit of this moment that we have before it is taken away from us. Aameen
