Yes, Even The Summer Holidays Are A Blessing

Jul 14, 2008
What are you doing these summer holidays? The sad thing is, a majority of people spend their time bored, and free from enjoyment, when they could be doing something useful whilst making the most of themselves.

We all get agitated with that feeling of helplessness and not being able to do the bare necessities for ourselves. Think though of the summer holidays as a blessing from Allah. After all, you spent a majority of the year working hard inside school, so why shouldn't you enjoy the outdoors and the sunshine? This is your time to relax and be free; just rewards, one should think. An empty house is a devil's workshop.

Be careful, don't let the devil settle in: with boredom comes evil. Don't let this become a routine and allow shaitaan to overcome you. With all the free time on our hands this is a perfect opportunity to recite part of the Quran. This needn't even be much: just a few lines or pages at a time.

Try and pray for those Sunnah and Nafil that we never seem to have time for; remember, praying only takes a few moments and can bring great rewards. Saying Subhanallah, Alhamdulillah, or Allah-hu-Akbar literally takes a couple of seconds. and we don't even have to bother anyone whilst doing it. What's more, it can be done in a variety of location: from lying on your bed awake at night, getting on the bus, browsing the internet, and walking down the street. Allah has ordered us to do Zikr:

"O you who believe! Remember All‚h with much remembrance." (Al-Quran, 33:41)

Furthermore, don't forget that one of the most important aspects of your life is to have good friends. Friends can influence us in many ways: they inspire us to think, and to act in all situations. Friends can bring us closer to Islam and Allah. Be wise, and choose carefully who you hang around with these summer holidays. Allah, the All-Knower, has said in the Holy Quran:

"O you who believe! Be afraid of All‚h, and be with those who are true (in words and deeds.)" (Al-Quran, 9:119)

Judge carefully: we should only associate with the righteous, and not be easily influenced by those of bad deed. Having good company will have positive effect upon us, and allow us to enjoy ourselves. If your friends stop and pray to Allah then it's most likely that you will be influenced to do so too. Think about this.

Put the summer holidays to good use; Allah will protect us from bad company and inspire us to feel good about ourselves.

Time is precious. Use it to reflect upon the beautiful blessings of Allah.
