First and foremost, the one thing that needs to be made clear is that Muslims should not have free time in the first place. They should be performing prayers and worshipping Allah. But, that is not the case with the Muslims of today and even though the Muslims of the modern era perform prayers, read the Holy Quran and worship Allah, they still have a considerable amount of free time at their hands that they need to spend. Well, there are a lot of things that a Muslim can do whenever they have some free time but the only question most Muslims ask is how to spend free time being a Muslim. There are many things that a Muslim shouldn’t do and that is why most Muslims wonder as to what they can and what they can’t do during their free time.
What to do in order to spend free time being a Muslim?
Here is the answer for all those who wonder how to spend free time being a Muslim. The following are some of the many things that Muslims can do in order to kill time and in order to spend the free time that they have.
Learn more about religion
The one thing that a Muslim can do in order to spend their free time is to learn more about their religion. A Muslim can either ask elders or consult books in order to find out facts regarding Islam. The Muslims of the modern age rarely try to learn more about their religion and that is simply because they do not know how interesting facts and stories regarding Islam can be. In addition, learning more about Islam will not only help a person spend their free time but will also help them get to know some interesting information regarding Islam.
Learn about life of Allah’s Prophets/Messengers
Another answer to those who wonder how to spend free time being a Muslim is by learning more about Allah’s Prophets or Allah’s Messengers. Everyone knows that Adam (AS) was the first messenger of Allah and everyone knows that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) was the last. However, not many people know about the interesting stories and the interesting lives of the prophets that came in between the first and the last prophets. Many intriguing events took place between the time of the first messenger and the last messenger and a Muslim should try to learn all there is to know about them during the free time that they have.
Help those who need to be helped
Helping those who need to be helped will not only help a person spend their extra or free time but will also help them turn into ideal Muslims. The Muslims of today think that the only way to help a person is to give them money. That is nowhere near true because a person can help another person in any possible way. Helping elders cross roads, helping fellow humans carry their groceries, helping someone set their home up, helping the poor and helping those in trouble all count as “helping”.
