Two Blessed Gifts – Health and Time

vallejo mahanama him al hamdu lillahi

rabbil alameen masala to a salam ala

shava gambia he went mousseline nabina

muhammad anwar ali he was happy as mine

we praise allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala we

thank him upon all conditions we ask him

to send blessings and salutations upon

muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam his

entire household all his companions may

allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala bless them all

and may he bless every single one of us

I mean my beloved brothers and sisters

the gifts of allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala

upon us are many some of them are quite

clear for us to see and others we would

need to dig a little bit before we

realize that this is a gift of allah

subhanahu wa’ta’ala some of these gifts

that are hidden in fact not so hidden

but they would require an effort from us

to discover them or to realize what

exactly they are some of these the

reason why they are not so clear is

because as we grew up we did not really

pick up the difference between us and

the others of a similar age group and

they are two such gifts that are made

mention of in the hadith of rasulullah

sallallahu alayhi wasallam that i wish

to talk about this afternoon the prophet

sallallahu alayhi wasallam says name

attorney mabu none fahima Kathy home in

earnest there are two gifts in the name

the name of allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala

referring to the gifts or the boons of

allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala in one verse

in the Quran or in a few places in the

quran allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala says

what

down door near metal eyelet why so if

you are ever going to try to count the

gifts of Allah upon you you will not be

able to do that you will never be able

to circumscribe them or to count them

all you might start writing a list

you’ll have a few thousand things and it

will still continue up to the day you

die you will not be able to to actually

get all of them jot it down so this

shows that they are gifts of Allah that

we need to search for understand their

value and appreciate them so the two

gifts that are spoken about in the

hadith the prophet sallallahu celeb says

these two gifts many people are deceived

regarding them a la qaban Robin is when

a person doesn’t really know the reality

they are deceived in some regard you

know for example if you are buying just

an example if you are buying a

watermelon mashallah and you don’t know

whether the taste of it inside is

actually going to be as the person who

is selling it to you is telling you so

by a right you have an option of asking

him to slice it on condition that you

pay his price may allah subhanahu

wa’ta’ala grant us an understanding so

going back to this two things many

people are deceived about the first one

is health your health is such a gift of

Allah like I said when we are young and

we grow up those in our age group the

bulk of them they would probably we

would not pick up if anyone was really

seriously sick and even if they will we

always feel sometimes when we are normal

and healthy that you know what it won’t

happen to me we feel that and one day

suddenly when it overtakes you you

realize guess what it was too late and

it now is too late may allah subhanahu

wa’ta’ala forgive us and may he grant us

an understanding of the

value of this beautiful gift of Allah

the health if I spend a few moments

speaking about health we will realize

the entire body is so sophisticated Lee

connected that if something goes wrong

with a single part of your body the rest

of the body is restless and the rest of

the body is affected take for example

the breathing that we have do you know

if you sit for a moment and think and

this is why Allah says wafi forcing

khoobam a fella to bassoon do you not

look within yourselves to discover the

signs and the greatness of allah

subhanahu wa’ta’ala look within yourself

if you have to sit and think about the

breathing you and I are breathing right

now do you know what happens it starts

off with your nose and mouth and it goes

through the entire respiratory system

the lungs if there is anything wrong

with any part of the body connected to

your breathing you would feel lethargic

you would probably feel sickly you might

feel lazy and various other problems you

know they say the oxygen levels that are

actually taken in would vary from person

to person and depending on how good your

oxygen intake is that is how healthy you

feel because the body means the oxygen

but did we ever think of this when we

were born we were too young to

understand and as we became of

understanding age well we had other

according to us bigger things to think

about so we never ever thought about

these things so allah subhanahu

wa’ta’ala is asking us to ponder over

this gift and to make sure we do not

waste it and we do not lose the value of

this beautiful gift we appreciate it so

I look at how I breathe I look at the

Faculty of sight seeing ask those who

cannot see the hadith of rasul allah

allah allah salam says whomsoever Allah

has taken away his eyesight or her

eyesight in this life he grants them in

return for their

patience Jenna without reckoning Subhan

Allah if Allah stakin your eyesight away

and you born the suburb or the patience

required he gives you Jenna in return

because it is such a big gift of Allah

one of the senses so this is why I ask

those who have a problem with their

eyesight and you realize the value of

yours ask those who have a problem with

their hearing and you will realize the

value of yours but if you do not ask you

do not look you do not take time to

consider the value of your gift then may

allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala forgive us

perhaps you spend an entire lifetime

without having thanked Allah for such a

blessed gift this is why it is a great

sunnah of muhammed sallalahu salam to

visit the sick one of the reasons is

exactly what we are talking about today

that you visit the sickly those who are

struggling in one way or another you

make dua half on them and when you are

with them you appreciate what you have

la rocca bar you appreciate you thank

Allah Allah at least I can fulfill my

Salah for example standing ask those who

cannot at least I am a person who for

example can walk without any assistance

at least I’m a person who can hear

without any hearing aids oh I’m a person

perhaps who can you know reach out to

get whatever I want without the

assistance of others ask those who are

paralyzed those who have lost loans but

it would require from us at the deep

thinking thought and the pondering over

the gifts of Allah in order to be able

to appreciate such a blessed gift known

as health it’s one simple word but

believe me it is your entire life health

is actually a treasure that is granted

to us from allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala so

how do I show my appreciation for the

health that allah subhanahu metallus

blessed me with point number one I need

to ensure that i use the limbs and the

hell that allah has given me to obey a

las instructions he has asked me to obey

truly fulfill Salah to abstain from

prohibition and for example to speak

correctly you know there are certain

people who can

talk they are may Allah protect us all

but they I wouldn’t like to use the word

dumb but for all practical purposes they

cannot speak and certain people for

example who can or all of us the bulk of

us who can speak is it not true that

sometimes we use the same tongue the

same voice and the same gift of Allah to

disobey Allah subhana Allah Tala may he

forgive us really what a blessed gift

dddd mouth and the capacity to speak may

Allah subhana Allah grant us all and

understanding so the first point of

showing appreciation to allah subhanahu

wa’ta’ala is to be able to use these

faculties to obey allah subhanahu

wa’ta’ala secondly to thank him verbally

to say o Allah I thank you for the

eyesight you’ve given me for the

breathing body knows the senses that you

blessed me with the hell that you’ve

granted me ya allah i thank you for this

and I appreciate it sometimes what

happens people turn far away from allah

subhana allah ta’ala and then as a

blessing and a mercy he takes part of

their health away so that they turned

back to Allah so Hannah hotel and this

is why with all of us every single one

of us has been through what is known as

the common cold and we are affected by

it on a regular basis perhaps once a

year or a few years a common cold cough

sometimes a little allergy we have these

are signs of Allah and the fact that he

is in control if he wanted we would not

need we would not have needed to go

through these phases or these seasonal

sicknesses that come through we would

not have needed or he would not have

needed to make us go through that but

it’s for us to realize the gift of Allah

upon us you have a little energy a small

tablet might help you by the help of

allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala but without

that what would happen we would probably

get up in the morning all clogged up and

and you know the eyes would be red and

so much would happen and we wouldn’t

even know may Allah subhana

allah bless us and may he make us from

those who can use this health in the

right direction so to thank allah

subhanahu wa’ta’ala without tons to

achieve to appreciate what allah

subhanahu wa’ta’ala has blessed us by

thanking him o Allah I thank you for

what you’ve given me and to be from

amongst those whom whenever any part of

our health is effective immediately we

become closer to Allah never ever become

angry and agitated and irritated because

you are suffering a health problem no

take it in your stride understand call

out to Allah ask him for help and go and

seek medication it would be wrong for us

to say I lay my trust in allah subhanahu

wa’ta’ala and I do not need to visit the

doctor that is wrong because part and

parcel of laying your trust in allah

subhanahu wa’ta’ala is to go out to seek

cure for what allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala

has inflicted you with within your

capacity so I have the capacity to visit

the doctor I must go because this health

is actually a test from Allah subhana

Haddad it is a last choice to test us

through the body that we have isn’t it

that this body is going to be buried in

the grave when we die and isn’t it that

the body will return into the soil as

allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala says min half

alapana kumoi feehan o hadouken wha min

Han hecho con tomate an ultra we have

created you from the same soil we will

return you into the soil and we will

resurrect you from it once again that

shows that we will be returned to the

soil so the body I have and you have

today is actually not ours it belongs to

Allah he has entrusted us with it for a

short period of time when something goes

wrong with it your duty to seek

medication your duty to give it a rest

and this is why Allah Subhanahu metallus

created the night in order to rest and

he has created the daytime in order to

work obviously if you are

shift some time you might have you don’t

have it the other way around but we’re

talking here of the general rule so if

you do not rest you are actually doing a

great disservice to yourself and your

body you are transgressing because allah

subhanahu wa’ta’ala has instructed you

to rest your body the hadith of the

prophet salallahu salim says well in f

ck la caja holla Bethenny que la cajita

you have a right that needs to be

fulfilled of your bodies and of yourself

you have a right to fulfill may allah

subhanahu wa’ta’ala help us to fulfill

this beautiful right in a way if we take

a look at sickness like I said a few

moments ago it is a blessing of allah

subhanahu wa’ta’ala an opportunity to

get close to Allah every one of us

myself included when we are ill and

sometimes we or may be sick in a

different way they would come a stage

when we would understand look I need to

call out to Allah different people

understand at the different stake some

people immediately it would call out to

Allah and some people it takes time they

will first said you know what let’s go

and have this medication let’s try this

pain killer let’s try that and then they

say Ya Allah we’ve tried everything help

us a mockman a believer is he or she

whom from the time before the health is

negatively affected they’re already

asking Allah o Allah protect our health

that is a believer and this is the

hadith of muhammad sallallahu salam he

used to make dua for health and for so

many other factors even before he was

ever sick before he was affected by

anything he says o Allah grant me the

goodness or the good use of the

faculties that you’ve given me my

hearing my my site and and all the

energies you granted me oh Allah helped

me to use it in a good way do not take

it away from us in a way that we would

be left sick and ill may allah subhanahu

wa’ta’ala help us to understand these

great to us and may he make us from

those who would call out to allah whilst

we are healthy and this is why another

narration of rasulullah sallallahu salam

he makes it quite clear where he says

there are five things

if you do not seize those opportunities

five opportunities if you don’t seize

them they will be definitely overtaken

by five conditions which would then

result in regret one of them is your

health whilst you are healthy do what

you have to whilst you’re healthy thank

Allah ask a lot to protect you there

will come a day when you will not

perhaps be able to worship Allah the way

you would have been able to when you

were healthy or the way you are able to

today and this is why moments ago I said

ask those who cannot read Salah standing

anymore and make the solute in the

proper way perhaps they would regret the

days that they did not increase their

voluntary prayer to allah subhanahu

wa’ta’ala because it’s not the same may

allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala help us all

may he grant cure to all those who are

sick and deal and it brings me to one of

the main points when it comes to the

sicknesses of others always learn to

pray for other people never become

delighted and happy that this person is

sick that one is sick or mashallah you

know they deserved it that is not a

movement a true believer knows that

whatever they are afflicted with it can

come to me today it can come to me

tomorrow anything can happen and I can

be affected by it and even if I am NOT

the fact that I call out for my fellow

Muslim the fact that I call out for a

person who is suffering and struggling

in their health do you know the angels

are calling out with the same time for

me so why don’t we achieve that why

don’t we seize the opportunity you see

someone you make it to after them lapis

at the hoolan inshallah the sunnah of

mohamed salah salem asking for their

cure and asking for you know a reward to

be given to them for the suburb that

they are going through and you say oh

Allah don’t test me with the same allah

subhanahu wa’ta’ala bless us so the

point we the first point that i had that

the idea that we are speaking about

today makes mention of is the issue of

health I hope I’ve said enough regarding

health that would convince us or at

least move us to the degree that we

appreciate the help we have you know to

fulfill your Salah on time to be able to

read the Quran whilst you can actually

read correctly to

able to obey a loss of an annuity

Allah’s instruction all this we need to

ponder over and we need to ask a lot of

hannah montana the second issue that is

mentioned in the same hadith we started

with the prophets of allah allah salam

says alpha rod and Farah meaning

three-time your free time in my free

time when we are young what do we do

with the free time let’s be honest we

play games and sometimes we use it in

something that is futile because you are

very young a little toddler and infant

there is nothing more you could do and

as you grow up you then go to school

your free time becomes less you know

your first days at a nursery school for

example what we would call a preschool

your first day at preschool would occupy

you so much that when you come back you

are tired you need to sleep a little

child and then what happens your free

time is introduced as you grow up a

little bit more free time reduced when

you graduate from primary school to high

school your free time is reduced even

more and when you go up further your

free time is actually almost diminishing

you just have a weekend than that too

sometimes how you spend it Allah knows

so the hadith of the prophet of allah

salam he tells us free time is a nema

it’s actually a gift from Allah to test

you what do you do in it and where do we

get this from the beginning of the

hadith where the prophets allah salam

says near my tanning these are two gifts

of allah and allah says whom mulattos

alumna llaman even and in name on the

day of judgment you will be asked about

the gifts of allah one of them is your

free time what did you do in your time

that was free did you use it to gain

closeness to Allah did you use it to

solve crises and problems did you use it

with your family constructively did you

use it with the Ummah constructively or

did you sin did you waste it you see

there are several categories of this

free time and the way it is used the

best of which is in the obedience of

Allah or constructively the second is a

person who does nothing waste I was just

sleeping I was free and I was sleeping

if that is the case we have

the test as well because life is like in

our glass where the sand keeps going

whether you are sleeping or awake the

same sand is going you are still losing

your time so you’d rather make sure that

you do not unnecessarily waste that time

in a way or should I say you do not

waste the time in a way that you could

have done something constructive in one

day when you become occupied you realize

and it would be too late by then so this

is why the worst person is he who spends

his free time singing and transgressing

against Allah and this people the young

of today sometimes we certainly think oh

I’ve got two hours to kill come let’s go

watch a movie what are you doing you

could have spent that time so

constructively and here you are a movie

the hadith says if a person says so

behan Allah he will be homme de 100

times a day his sins are washed away

even if they were like the froth of the

ocean Subhan Allah how many times and

how many of us myself included have said

Subhan Allah he will be handy he you

know glorifying Allah and praising Allah

more than a hundred times a day or a

hundred times a day Allah forgive us

really it’s a powerful narration but we

should repeat these words today is a

Friday I call on you to praise Allah and

glorify Him using your tongue your free

time the first thing that must come to

your mind let me go and learn the

Piranha bit more it’s the only word of

Allah that we have available here Allah

Akbar my maker and yours has given me a

word it’s the only word of a life spent

some time in the day don’t get tired and

sick of it because they will come a day

when you will not have that free time

now allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala help us

understand these two great gifts of his

a/c a 214 our the hell that he has

blessed us with and the free time we

have and may we spend our free time

constructively and may we use all the

faculties he has blessed us with in the

best possible way so then the day it is

taken away we

not regret and the day we returned to

allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala we have no

regret may Allah forgive us all Oh
