You only got an hour…

It was reported that Abu Zarr Ghaffari (Radiallahu Anhu) said:
الدنيا ثلاث ساعات

;ساعة مضت وساعة انت فيها وساعة اتدركها املا‘

‘The world is only three hours: An hour that has past;
an hour in which you are now;
and an hour (to come) which you may or may not get.
Thus, in reality, you have only an hour

Just another girl who writes stuff, who thinks the world is screwed up, who believes things can change, who knows it most probably won't.

  1. Peace be upon you,

    A very meaningful quote- it reminded me of a quote of Hasan al-Basri:

    “The World is three days:
    As for yesterday, it has vanished,
    along with all that was in it.
    As for tomorrow, you may never see it.
    As for today, it is yours, so work in it.”
    (Hassan al-Basri)

    Thank you for sharing.

    KInd regards.

  2. I need to print this on a large poster and put it over my “desk” 😦

  3. Peace be upon you again,

    Surely we all need to be reminded now and again- it is part of the human condition to become tied up and stuck in a rut.

    The God willing, Dont be sad is working on a project that does what you wished- it puts pertinent quotes for you to stick anywhere!

    Keep and eye out for it.

    Kind regards.

  4. DontBeSad, that’s awesome, both the quote you added and the project. I look forward to that!

    DN, yeah…I need to do that too!
