Shaykh Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullah on one occasion spoke on the theme of valuing time. As part of his talk, the Shaykh explained how much loss futile activities bring to a person.




He took the example of watching or listening to 90 minutes of football and questioned what benefit these 90 minutes brings to a person? The fact is that one doesn't gain anything! In fact when one takes into account alternative actions of virtue, one very quickly comes to realise the size of loss.



Let us look at a few examples the Shaykh mentioned:

If one was to engage in reciting the Qur'an for this length of time he/she would on average recite 3-4 juz. Allah grants 10 rewards for every letter recited. Imagine how many letters one would recite in 3-4 juz and multiply that by 10! By reading 3 juz you could have earned yourself at least 282,240 rewards!!!

Recite 'Subhaanallah Wal Hamdulillah'. The Prophet sallallahu 'alayhe wa sallam said,
سبحان الله و الحمد لله 'Subhaanallah wal Hamdulillah fills the space between the skies and the earth'. Think for a moment how much reward can be gained from 90 minutes of reciting this.

It is possible to gain the reward which will fill the space between the skies and the earth 2,970 times!!!

Recite
سبحان الله و الحمد لله و لا اله إلا الله و الله اكبر


('Subhaanallahi walhamdulillahi wa laailaaha illallaahu wallahu akbar)'.


From the Ahaadith we learn that Jannah is a barren land and these glorifying words plant a tree for its reciter in Jannah. During 90 minutes, you could prepare yourself a lovely forest.


In fact you could have planted 1,620 trees in Jannah!!!


Recite Surah Ikhlas. In the Hadith it comes that Surah Ikhlas is equal to 1/3 of the Qur'an. Hence, by reciting it 3 times you will earn the reward of reciting the full Quran! Along with this, another Hadith explains that when a person recites Surah Ikhlas 10 times Allah builds a palace in Jannah for him!!

In 90 minutes you could have earned the reward of 360 Qurans' & build yourself 108 palaces in Jannah!!!


Recite durood, the shortest version is 'Sallallahu 'alayhe wa sallam'. In the Hadith it is stated that for every durood a person sends upon the Prophet Sallallahu 'alayhe wa sallam, Allah forgives 10 sins, grants 10 rewards and elevates the person 10 stages.

In 90 minutes you could have had 51,300 sins forgiven, 51,300 rewards granted and 51,300 stages elevated in Paradise!!!!


So you thought it was just 90 minutes of harmless fun? Might be worth looking at the figures above and calculating how much loss every game has left for you.
