Fifth of Five Before Five

(Qari Amir Hasan Sahab (DB))
Beloved Prophet has asked to value five things before five other things. Today the fifth one is being urged. (The Shaikh (DB) has jumped third and fourth. This has happened earlier too.) Value the moments of being unoccupied before you are completely occupied. Khwaja Sahab Majzoob(RA) has said:

The life is melting away like ice,
Slowly, Silently, Surreptitiously.
(Ho rahi hai umr misl-e-barf kum,
Chupke-chupke, rafta-rafta, dum-ba-dum.)
The breath is on its way to the world of extinction,
And suddenly, one day, it will cease.
(Sans hai ik reh ru-e-mulk-e-adam,
Daff-tun ik roz ye jayega thum.)

(Sitting (majlis) on Friday, October 15, 2010)
