Since last night my young son has been unwell. When I got back fromwork this evening I decided to take him to hospital despite myexhaustion. There were many waiting; perhaps we will be delayed by morethan an hour. I took my number and sat down in the waiting room. Therewere many faces, young andn old, but all silent.Some brothers made use of the many booklets available in the waitingroom. Some of those waiting had their eyes closed, while others werelooking around. Mostwere bored. Once in a while the long silence was broken by a nursecalling out a number. Happiness appears on the one whose turn it is,and he gets up quickly; then silence returns.A young man grabbed my attention. He was reading a pocket-sized Qur`ancontinuously; not raising his head even once. At first I did not thinkmuch! about him. However, after one hour of waiting my casual glancesturned into a deep reflection about his lifestyle and how he utilizeshis time. One hour of life wasted! Instead of making benefit of thathour, it was just a boring wait. Then the call for prayer was made. Wewent to prayer in the hospital's mosque. I tried to pray close to theman who was reading the Qur`an earlier in the waiting room. After theprayer I walked with him. I informed him of how impressed I was of himand how he tries to benefit from his time.He told me that most of our time is wasted without any benefit. Theseare days that go from our lives without being conscious of them orregretting their waste. He said that he started carrying thepocket-sized Qur`an around when a friend encouraged him to make fulluse of his time. He told me that in the time other people waste hegets to read much more of the Qur`an than he gets to read either athome or in the mosque. Moreover, besides the reward of reading theQur`an, this habit saves him from boredom and stress. He added that hehas now been waiting for one and a half hours. Then he asked, whenwill you find one and a half hours to read the Qur`an? I reflected;how much time do we waste? How many moments of our lives pass by, andyet we do not account for how they passed by? Indeed, how many monthspass by and we do not read the Qur`an? I came to respect my companion,and I discovered that I am to stand for account and that time is notin my hand; so what am I waiting for? My thoughts were interrupted bythe nurse calling out my number; I went to the doctor. But I want toachieve something now.After I left the hospital I quickly went to the bookshop and bought apocket-sized Qur`an. I decided to be mindful of how I spend the time.If this information is beneficial to you, then please do forward it toyour friends and relatives.
