Take Advantage of Five Before Five

The Prophet sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam has been blessed with jawaami' ul kalim, the most concise, or precise, speech. The Prophet sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam said, "I have been blessed with concise speech." Therefore, when we look at the precious pearls that came out of the Prophet’s mouth, sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam, we find that many of his ahadith are in fact treasure chests of wisdom. The words might be small, but the meanings behind them are great. The speech might be succinct, but the benefits and the blessings that can be derived from them are innumerable.

And of the ahadith that are jawaami', or comprehensive in nature, is the hadith of ibn Abbas radi Allahu anhu reported in the mustadrak of Al-Haakim, musnad Imam Ahmad, and others, with an authentic chain of narration. In this hadith the Prophet sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam said to a man while he was advising him:

"Take advantage of five matters before five other matters: your youth, before you become old; and your health, before you fall sick; and your richness, before you become poor; and your free time before you become busy; and your life, before your death."

The first word, ightanam comes from same root that signifies sheep - ghanam. Sheep, in Arabic, means ghanam, and ightanam is from the same root that also signifies sheep. What exactly is the meaning of ightanam? Ightanam is used to indicate any good that can be obtained without much effort. Just like sheep, they can easily be caught if they go astray. This is why the war booty that is found on the battlefield after the army has fled is called ghaneemah. It is easy to take, just like the sheep. You can grasp it without much effort. Ghaneemah, ightanam, and ghanam are all from the same root.

So it is as if the Prophet sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam is pointing out that these five matters are very easy to obtain. They are easy to prey on and catch, and very simple to benefit from. That is because they are treasures that everyone possesses but few people appreciate.

What are these five things ?

1: Take Advantage of Your Youth Before Your Old Age
2: Take Advantage of Your Health, Before You Fall Sick
3: Take Advantage of Your Richness Before Poverty
4: Take Advantage of Your Free Time Before You Become Busy
5: Take Advantage of Your Life Before Your Death

Appreciate Five things before Five
Mufti Ismail Menk

INGAT LIMA PERKARA

Menjadi lumrah manusia, maka akan menjadi ingat, berwaspada dan bersiap sedia apabila diberi ingatan atau amaran selagi tiada ingatan yang masuk ke corong telinga, maka akan sentiasa alpa dan leka yang akhirnya tanpa benteng iman ampuh menjerumuskan mereka ke lembah kemurkaan.

Apabila Allah S.W.T memberi ingatan. Tegahan atau amaran, ia mempunyai maksud disebaliknya. Kita boleh menjadi kafir apabila tidak mempercayainya, munafik apabila kurang yakin dan fasik apabila menganggap mudah lantaran dituruti runtunan hawa nafsu.

Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda yang bermaksud : " Rebutlah lima perkara sebelum datangnya lima perkara. Pertama : masa sihat sebelum sakit. Kedua : masa kaya sebelum datangnya masa sempit (miskin). Ketiga : masa lapang sebelum tiba masa sibuk. Keempat masa mudamu sebelum datang masa tua dan kelima masa hidup sebelum tiba masa mati." (riwayat al-Hakim dan al-Baihaqi).

Hadis ini memperlihatkan kepada kita betapa Rasulullah s.a.w begitu sekali bersungguh-sungguh tidak mahu umatnya kerugian kerana mengabaikan kelima-lima peluang yang patut mereka bersungguh-sungguh merebutnya sebelum datang lima perkara yang boleh menyebabkan mereka ditimpa penyesalan.
