Time Is Passing By Way Too Fast!

Dear brothers and sisters there’s a very famous narration where the Prophet ﷺ said
لا تَقُومُ السَّاعَةُ حَتَّى يَتَقَارَبَ الزَّمَانُ that time the hour will not come, until time shrinks, time literally shrinks. so the prophet ﷺ said فَتَكُونَ السَّنَةُ كَالشَّهْرِ that a year will feel like a month وَيَكُونَ الشَّهْرُ كَالْجُمُعَةِ and a month would feel like a week وَتَكُونَ الْجُمُعَةُ كَالْيَوْمِ and a week would feel feel like a day وَيَكُونَ الْيَوْمُ كَالسَّاعَةِ and a day would feel like just an hour وَتَكُونَ السَّاعَةُ كَاحْتِرَاقِ السَّعَفَةِ and the the hour would feel like a burning bush or like the flare of a fire quickly everything goes by so quickly.

you don’t feel barakah in time you don’t feel blessing in your time, and there’s a collective manifestation of that and then there’s on the individual level when you start to look at yourself and you say where is it going and I read about people that are so productive in the past and in the present where is the blessing in my time.
And the messenger صَلَّى ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ in another narration also bukhari he directly tied the shrinking of time to the decrease of good deeds and the increase of certain types of corruption. so he said صَلَّى ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَتَقارَبُ الزَّمانُ، ويَنْقُصُ العَمَلُ that time would shrink and so the Deeds the output of Good Deeds would be less ويُلْقَى الشُّحُّ and greed miserliness stinginess would be placed in the hearts of people ويَكْثُرُ الهَرْجُ and the prophet صَلَّى ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ said and murder would become prevalent murder would become prevalent and so there’s a direct connection between the shrinking of time and the shrinking of the output of deeds and of course. The battle with time to make the best use of your time is one that even the sahaba felt and most people do not realize the value of their time until things start to become different until you start to get older and until you start to get busier until your health starts to wither as well until you see some of the consequences of your wasted time later on in life and then you go back and you say Subhan Allah I should have done things differently
