حَدَّثَنَا الْمَكِّىُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ أَخْبَرَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ سَعِيدٍ - هُوَ ابْنُ أَبِى هِنْدٍ -

عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ - رضى الله عنهما - قَالَ قَالَ النَّبِىُّ - صلى الله عليه
وسلم - « نِعْمَتَانِ مَغْبُونٌ فِيهِمَا كَثِيرٌ مِنَ النَّاسِ ، الصِّحَّةُ وَالْفَرَاغُ

Abdullah bin Abbas (Radiallau Anhu) reports that Rasulullah said (
صلى الله عليه وسلم) "There are two bounties of Allah where in most
people are deceived, health and free time".

COMMENTARY :

The value of health is only realized when one falls ill.

Take for example, relieving oneself. If a person is unable to use
the bathroom for a day, what happens to this person? His whole life
comes to an immediate halt and he looks for ways to relieve him.
This one bounty of Allah we enjoy day in and day out but we do not
even regard it to be a bounty.

Let us appreciate the bounty of health and use our health in the
obedience of Allah Ta'ala.

Free time is another bounty of Allah Ta'ala. Consider those people
who have to tirelessly work many shifts just to make ends meet. They
also cherish free time but are forced just to support their
families. Therefore appreciate the free time before you are forced
to use it in other ways. A sign of appreciation is to dedicate some
of the free time for the Ibaadah and service of Allah. The enjoyment
one will earn by doing so can never be explained.

Allah states in a Hadith Qudsi "O! Son of Adam free yourself for my
obedience and I will make you independent and remove your poverty,
and if you will not do so, I will tire you with work and never
remove your want and poverty".
