Just looking at how you spend your time can help you make more room in your life for studying the Quran!
Try this: spend a day, or even an afternoon or evening, writing down everything you do and how much time it took. Then add up all the time you simply frittered away on useless activities.
Don’t get me wrong— doing something just for the fun of it is perfectly okay if you’re say bismillah and then do it to rest and restore yourself for more work (or study).
The trouble is, sometimes these leisure pursuits mesmerise us to the point where we just can’t put them down (common examples are game controllers, thriller novels, and meaningless conversations). Once this happens, they’ve lost their value as restorative activities.
Every moment you spend with the Quran is of profound and lasting value. Quranic study is more important than your career, your social life, and your personal pleasure, because studying the Quran, more than any other activity, will increase all of these things for you.
May Allah (swt) richly bless your efforts to learn and spread the message of the Quran.
Be pious scholars of the Lord because of what you have taught of the Scripture and because of what you have studied. [from Al-Quran, 3:79]
