Maintaing the correct balance..

Assalamualaykum warahmatullah wabarakatu,Bismillah Hirah'manir Raheem.
Allahuma Sali'ala sayidina Muhammadin nabiyil ummi wa 'Ala ali wa sahbihi wa salim.

I pray that the readers of this blog are in good health and Imaan. Ameen

It's funny how in everyday communication, one of the main moans of conversation are the fact that there aren't enough hours in the day, I for one am very guilty of it. Today I took a step back and realised how ungrateful I sounded; I realised that even though we feel that there isn't enough time to do what we please, we have still been given that time, 24 hours.
24 hours, 1440 minutes, 86400 seconds. Doesn't sound like alot of time for most of us, but as I said atleast we have been given that, surely it's alot better than having 12 hours? We should see time as another one of the billion billion gazillion mercy's from Allah subhana wa ta'ala.

Everything in life is about maintaing the right balance to do things, and it's because of the way some people chose to lead their lives, they find that there is no balance and time is lost, wasted gone. I sometimes feel that I spend too much time doing one thing, rather than using that extra time to do what I had originally intended to do, what I should have been doing.

In life our purpose is to worship Allah subhana wa ta'ala, however we have been put on this Earth with needs and activities to carry out on a regular basis. It is essential in life that we do these things for our survival, in order for us to carry out our ultimate purpose. However it is at this point that things start to 'kick in' and life becomes tough. Is it as this point that things become a test from Allah subhana wa ta'ala, and it is how we are able to maintain that balance that we will be judged upon by Allah subhana wa ta'ala.. (Except, that 'point' that we meet, is not something that we face with every once in a while it is everyday).
Maintaining the right balance is crutial. Doing our chores with the intention of pleasing Allah subhana wa ta'ala and doing it in the correct manner, more to the point, living our life according to the sunnah of our Beloved Rasool salialahualayhi wassalam.

Helping out our parents, cleaning, washing up, eating, taking a bath, teaching, etc, are all acts of Ibadah(Worship) if they are done in the right way possible. Subhana'Allah isn't that amazing? The beauty of Islam is found in so many places, we just don't look hard enough. At the same time, even though all of the above verbs are needed in our life, we should it make it such that our Ibadah is a priority and it should be done without even a second thought.

..Just a random thought that was floating around. It can be seen similar to the pH value of things, anything that is too acidic is bad for us, anything that is too alkaline is bad for us, keeping ir around about neutral is just right.

May Allah give us all the ability to establish the right balance of our everyday activities. May we remember and worship Him in everything that we do.Ameen wa thuma ameen.

Wassalamualaykum warahmatullah.
