I am at fault for this.  Sometimes I grab my phone and start taking shots at scholars when I attend a lecture or class. It is sad really that I will probably look at it for a few seconds and that’ll be the end of it. I am at also at fault of wasting so much time on Facebook.  Mark Zuckerberg is making billions off of me wasting time. Facebook literally is supposedly worth over a 100 billion dollars.  I’ve decided to take be more conscious in what I do on Facebook. If it’s not pleasing to Allah then I will abstain or stay away.  There are benefits to Facebook, but even the benefits waste time that could be better utilized.

Another aspect is simply disconnecting to reconnect with the world.  Shaykh Hamza also said in the clip get real friends with real branches saying we should walk amongst trees. Get out there and enjoy the world. He also mentioned reading books.  Get of the Facebook and pick up a real book.  This is something else that I have recently seriously begun to do.  After all the first word revealed to Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was “Read”.

Everything in moderation.
