Imaam al-Shaafi’i Rahimahullaah said: ‘There is nobody except that he has someone who loves him and someone who hates him. So if that’s the case, let a person be with the people who are obedient to Allaah `Azza Wa Jall.’

A famous line of Arab poetry states,

الوقت كالسيف ان لم تقطعه قطعك
Time is like a sword, if you do not cut it, it will cut you.

The Salaf (pious predecessors) were masters of time management.

Imam Sha’bi rahimahullah, one of the great scholars of our Deen, was asked one day how he gained so much knowledge. To this question he answered, “being independent, traveling in the cities, having patience like the patience of a donkey and rising early like the crows.” From his answer, we as students can derive benefits on how we should be with our time.

  • Being independent: motivate yourself and don’t rely on others to help you.

  • Traveling in the cities: keep moving and don’t become stagnant.

  • Patience like the patience of a donkey: be patient with learning and be patient on the path of worshipping Allah. Shaykh Hassan Abdul-Wahhab al-Banna hafidhahullah was asked how does one become a strong student, treading the path of seeking knowledge? The Shaykh replied, Patience (Sabr). He said this 3 times. He said patience with Allah, in good and bad times. Patience with yourself, patience with ease and with hardships. Patience with your family and friends. Patience with knowledge. Patience with the Qur’an.

  • Rising early like the crows: the biggest tip on time management is to get up early to complete your tasks.


I so need to act upon that... May Allah give us the hidaaya to act upon what we learn Ameen
