Abu Hurayra (may Allah be pleased with him) related that the Prophet (SAW) said, “ A group does not gather in one of the houses of God Most High reciting the Quran and studying it together, except that the tranquility descends upon them, mercy envelops them, the angels encompass them, and God mentions them to those in His presence.”
So, if we can find time to have group study sessions, and we have time to update each other about the latest professor we hate, we can definitely find time to meet up and study the Quran; even if it is with just one other person. The hadith mentioned above is enough to describe how rewarding such an experience will be. Just imagine: angels encompassing you all around, reaching up all the way to the heavens, as you dedicate a mere ten or fifiteen minutes to the One who created us from the mud, and blessed us with all that life has to offer.
If we can’t do this much, then we need to stop and think, and reconsider our lives and our positions in this world. What is the point of having a university degree, wanting to get that Benz, if we can’t even do the bare minimum?
This is a reminder, first and foremost to myself, and then to everyone else, to make the most of this life so that it will serve as a witness for us in the Aa’khira. May Allah (SWT) guide us all on the path of Siraat al-Mustaqeem, and may He make us among those who succeed in this life and the next.
