Watching television it’s not a big thing..
But if U started to obsess with it and find Urself spending all day long in front of that 'one-eye-box' or even worse, U postpone Ur prayer so that U can watch the whole shows..
Yes, U should be worried..
And if U like to listen to the radio, music- I think it is still fine
But again, if u find Urself stuck to the music and Ur day would not be perfect without tuning the radio, U sing the song more U recite the Qur'an
then U've got a problem dude..
Here's the reason
Say: If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your kindred, the wealth that you have gained, the commerce in which you fear a decline, and the dwellings in which you delight ... are dearer to you than Allah and His Messenger, and striving hard and fighting in His Cause , then wait until Allah brings about His Decision (torment). And Allah guides not the people who are Al-Fasiqun (the rebellious, disobedient to Allah).
I am not an expert in explaining the ‘ayah’ of Qur’an, but at least from this verse, we know that Allah s.w.t hates those who put other things on top over HIM and His Messenger, Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. Especially for those whose on purpose leave all the Allah’s commands just only for the worldly matters. Naudhubillah
Logically, if U put more priority on watching television and due to afraid of missing the important parts in the shows, U take ablution faster and start to pray like a sprinter in the middle of Olympic race, how can U gain the khushu’ while in praying?
Sometimes we rather to try our best to wake up at 2-3 a.m just to watch tv-football for example? But when it comes to tahajjud prayer, it seems like there’s a big stone over our body causing us hard to be awake and perform the night prayer..Sounds familiar? I used to be in that situation too. *sigh*
Maybe we can ask questions to ourselves..
What is our priority now? worldly satisfaction or Allah's pleasure?
What is our aim in life? success in world life or success in both dunya wa akhirah
Is it enough to pray five times daily, but never try to do any other deeds to enhance our Eman?
When we are being asked by Allah s.w.t about how we spent our time in our life time, can we answer it proudly or in shamefully?
Don't get me wrong, I am not forbidding U from doing all the stuff that U like, but I really really want U to remember that do not put those things over Allah and Rasul s.a.w
When it comes to prayer, perform it sincerely and of course, ON TIME! =D
Put Al-Qur'an as Ur music MOST of da time and 'Sing' it regularly..
Use Ur time well..Its too precious to let it go just like that
U still can have fun in Ur life without putting Islam behind ur back
Because we wanna be A FULL TIME MUSLIM
So, breath-walk-eat-and enjoy Ur time like a real Muslim!
InshaAllah, U may find the peace in Ur heart and Ur day will not be wasted anymore ^_^
