Time Wasting : Bad Bargain

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful The Bestower of Mercy
Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said:
[1] ‘’Time wasting is more serious than death; because time wasting cuts you off from Allaah and the home of the afterlife, whereas death cuts you off from the worldly life and its people.’’ [1]

 [2] ‘’The greatest profit in the worldly life is that you pre-occupy yourself every time with what is more worthy/obligatory in it, and with what is more beneficial for (you) in the hereafter.’’ [2]
[3] ‘’How can he who bargains paradise and what it contains with an hour’s desire be a sensible person?! [3]
[4] ‘’If knowledge benefitted without action, Allaah (Subhaanahu-Wata-Aalaa) would not have censured the rabbis of the people of the book; and had it been that action benefitted without sincerity, Allaah would not have censured the hypocrites.’’ [4]
[5] ‘’The path to Allaah is secluded from the people of doubt and those who follow lowly desires. It is erected for the people of certainty and patience, and they are upon the path similar to distinguishing men of high status: ‘’And We made from among them (Children of Israel), leaders, giving guidance under Our Command, when they were patient and used to believe with certainty in Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.). [Soorah As-Sajdah: Ayah:24] [5]
[6] ‘’The people enter the hell-fire through three doors: (a) The door of those things that resemble the truth but are falsehood, which inherits doubts in the religion of Allaah. (b) The door of lowly desires which inherits the giving of precedence to desires over obedience to (Allaah) and seeking His pleasure. (c) The door of anger which inherits enmity towards (Allaah’s) slaves.’’ [6]

And Allaah know best
