TIME MANAGEMENT IN ISLAMIC

WESTERN VIEW ON TIME

“TIME IS MONEY”
IF A PERSON HAD ENOUGH MONEY THEN HE
CAN TAKE TIME FOR WASTING.
IT IS PURELY A MATERIALISTIC POINT OF
VIEW.
IT IS A CLICHÉ PROMOTED IN ORDER TO
INCREASE INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTIVITY.
TIME MANAGEMENT IN ISLAMIC
PERSPECTIVE

VALUE OF TIME?
SOMEBODY MAY CALCULATE THIS WAY:
4 YEARS OF INTENSIVE EDUCATION CAN
GAURANTEE A BEST CAREER AND A LIFE LONG
LUXURY.
Every hour in student life = Earning of 30 years/4 year
time
Calculations:
One hour = SR 4,000,000 /30x12x48= SR 231
TIME MANAGEMENT IN ISLAMIC

Time provides opportunities to everybody!

HOLIDAYS.
• DO NOT HESITATE TO SEEK HELP FROM
TEACHERS, CLASSMATES OR ELDERS ON
DIFFICULT TOPICS. YOU CAN GO FOR REGULAR
PAID TUTORIALS.
TIME MANAGEMENT IN ISLAMIC PERSPECTIVE

TYPES OF STUDENTS
• TAKE THREE STUDENTS OF SAME CLASS AND SAME IQ.
• TAKE A STUDY MATERIAL THAT REQUIRES 20 HOURS
PREPARATION.
• STUDENT ‘A’ ALLOCATES 20 HOURS AND PREPARED
THOROUGHLY AND HE IS LEFT WITH EXTRA TIME TO REVISE
IT IF REQUIRED.
• STUDENT ‘B’ WASTED TIME AND REALISES THAT HE IS LEFT
WITH ONLY LAST 20 AVAILABLE HOURS AND DEVELOPED
ANXIETY THAT AFFECTED HIS EFFICIENCY. HE PREPARED
BUT HE LACKS CONFIDENCE.
• STUDENT ‘C’ WASTED EVEN MORE TIME AND LEFT WITH
ONLY 10 HOURS. HE TRIES HARD BUT HE COULD NOT FINISH
THE STUDY MATERIAL.
• ‘A’ TELLS THE MATERIAL WAS EASY. SCORED 100%
• ‘B’ TELLS THE MATERIAL WAS DIFFICULT. SCORE 80%
• ‘C’ TELLS THE MATERIAL WAS VERY DIFFICULT. SCORED
60%
TIME MANAGEMENT IN ISLAMIC PERSPECTIVE

IT IS ALL ABOUT TIME MANAGEMENT

• THEY CALL IT EASY, DIFFICULT OR VERY DIFFICULT BUT IT IS


IN FACT WITH RESPECT TO THE TIME AVAILABLE FOR BRAIN
TO FOCUS.
• HUMAN BRAIN HAS CERTAIN LIMITATION: IT CAN PROCESS A
LIMITED INFORMATION IN A GIVEN SESSION.
• ALSO HUMAN BRAIN CAN NOT WORK CONTINUOUSLY. IT
NEEDS REST AT CERTAIN INTERVALS.
• WE MUST PROVIDE NECESSARY TIME TO BRAIN ENABLING IT
TO FOCUS ON ANY TASK WITH REGULAR INTERVALS.
• THUS REGULARITY IS THE ESSENCE OF TIME MANAGEMENT
• “ALLAH IS PLEASED WITH THE DEED DONE WITH
REGULARITY NO MATTER HOW SMALL IT IS.”
TIME MANAGEMENT IN ISLAMIC PERSPECTIVE

CONCLUSION

• TIME IS MORE THAN MONEY


• TIME IS ETERNAL SUCCESS
• DEFINE YOUR GOALS
• PLAN TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS (SCHEDULE)
• BE AWARE OF TIME STEALERS
• MAINTAIN BALANCE IN YOUR LIFE (PERSONAL
LIFE, PROFESSIONAL LIFE, RELIGIOUS LIFE,
SOCIAL LIFE ETC.)
