Ten Things We Waste

1. -Our Knowledge- Wasted by not taking action with it.

2. -Our Actions- Wasted by committing them without sincerity.

3. -Our Wealth- Wasted by using it on things that will not bring us ajr (reward). We waste our money, our status, our authority on things which have no benefit in this life or in the akhirah (hereafter).

4. -Our Hearts- Wasted because they are empty from the love of Allah, and a feeling of peace and contentment. In its place, our hearts are filled with something or someone else.

5. -Our Bodies- Wasted because we don't use them in ibadah (worship) and service of Allah.

6. -Our Love- Our emotional love is misdirected, not towards Allah, but towards something/someone else.

7. -Our Time- Wasted, not used property.

8. -Our Intellect- Wasted on things that are not beneficial, that are detrimental to society and the individual, not in contemplation or reflection.

9. -Our Service- Wasted in service of someone who will not bring us closer to Allah.

10.-Our Dhikr- Wasted, because it does not affect our hearts.
