Do not find fault with Time , the fault is with ourselves. Being Muslim means to keep the good and leave the bad. Instead of collecting the goods of this world you should collect good deeds in Akhirat. Those who pray from their youth, have a special place with the prophets in Akhirat.

Whose Gathering to Attend

The Quran is an trackless ocean, without shores, without end. The mention of everything is contained in it. It is a light that will serve the believer in the darkness of the Day of Judgment. Those in Paradise hear the Lord Almighty recite it Himself on Juma. And the joy one of them feels would destroy all distress everywhere.
