Quick Hadith 101

KITAABUR-RIQAAQ - "Riqaaq" is derived from the Arabic root word, "Riq" - which means - "softness". This chapter will InshaAllah deal with such Ahadith that softens the hearts.

Hadith 001:

Abdullah ibn Abbas RA narrates that Rasulullah SAW said:

"Many people are at a loss in two favours - good health and spare time." (Mishkaat; Mi’raaj)


Good health and spare time are two assets which should be used to worship Allah, and doing righteous actions for Allah's pleasure. If one uses his / her energy and spare time to worship Allah and earning His pleasure, then the used energy and time will reflect itself in the form of great rewards in the Hereafter as opposed to using the time and energy in mundane / useless activities which will perish without earning any rewards. That is indeed a great loss.
