Day Sixteen: Third Time’s the Charm

Today’s Prompt: Imagine you had a job in which you had to sift through forgotten or lost belongings. Describe a day in which you come upon something peculiar, or tell a story about something interesting you find in a pile.

On day four, you wrote about losing something. On day thirteen, you then wrote about finding something. So, today’s twist: If you’d like to continue our serial challenge, also reflect on the theme of lost and found more generally in this post.


 

Part 1 & 2:  Serially Lost, Serially Found

Part 3:

al-ashr

I have many experiences about losing and found something. Losing phones, uniforms, money, ring, even losing my dad.

I lost much times in my life. I can’t believe it, I am 36 now.  I used 17 years for schooling. (I began to study at school at 7 years old), 6 years for my job, Where was my 6 years? How many hours I used for worshipping my Creator? Only five minutes for every prayer. How many hours I used for sleeping, for blogging, for learning and for my family?

Losing phones, uniforms and property, Alhamdulillah I could buy other.

Losing money, I could find it by working.

Losing my dad, (it was a great losing), I can’t find the change of him, but I can pray for him.

Losing my times for something bad, I can’t take back my times. They had gone and will never back to me. So, time is very valuable thing in my life and other lives, I think.

How many hours those I need to find the idea to write it and convert it becomes post? That was why I try to do everything for Allah’s pleasure. I try to write something beneficial for me especially before sharing it to other. (I do struggle hard with my intention)

I remembered the Surah al-Asr :1-3

By time. (1) Indeed, mankind is in loss. (2) Except for those who have believed and done righteous deeds and advised each other to truth and advised each other to patience.(3)

Indeed, I have lost my times, and now I find a great guidance about time.
