Inspiration: There is a Hadith of the Prophet (SAW) in which He is advising a man while saying: “Take advantage of five matters before five other matters: • your youth, before you become old; • and your health, before you fall sick; • and your richness, before you become poor; • and your free time before you become busy; • and your life, before your death.” (Tirmidhi) I have humbly tried to place these ten elements in a visual context, to help serve as a daily reminder. We live in such times, where the things that should matter most, aren’t prioritised. We’re constantly in a battle throughout our daily lives, that we seldomly pause, and appreciate the blessings that we do have. I hope this painting can help you to take advantage of these valuable 5 gems, before the advent of the latter 5.
Umar ibn Al-Khattab used to say: "Haasiboo anfusakum qabla an tuhaasaboo." "Take yourselves to account before you are taken to account." At the end of each day, take accounts. What have you done for Islam or Muslims today? What have you learned about your deen today? Have you kept remembrance of Allah on your heart and on your tongue throughout the day? Have you spent your time wisely? -
