Br. Nouman Ali Khan tackles the issue of Wasting Time. This is the 18th of 30 lectures presented by Br. Nouman after Taraweeh every night during Ramadan 2007.
On the authority of Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah, sal
Allahu alayhi wa salla, said: “Seek out that which benefits you,
seek help only from Allah and never say you can’t do it.
“If any adversity comes to you, do not say: ‘If I had
only acted in such-and-such a way, it would have been
such-and-such;’ but instead, say: ‘Allah has decreed (it)
and what He willed, He has done,’ for verily, (the word) (if)
opens the way for the work of Satan.” – Saheeh Muslim
[Lessons from this hadith] If there is something that will
benefit you, make every effort and go after it! Seek it out.
There is no failure, only lessons.
