‘The son of Adam offends Me when he curses time, for I am time’

The Prophet (peace be upon him) relates to us that Allah says: “I am time”. How can this be? Isn’t time a creation of Allah?
Answered by
Sheikh Sulaymân al-Tuwayjirî
Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) relates to us that Allah says: “The son of Adam offends Me when he curses time, for I am time. In My hand is the affair. I alternate the night and the day.” [Sahîh al-Bukhârî (4826) and Sahîh Muslim (2246)] 

However, the meaning of this hadîth is not how you understand it. Time is indeed a creation of Allah. However, when a person curses time, he is in fact reviling the one who disposes of the affairs that unfold in time. Therefore, he is cursing Allah, since Allah alone is the one who brings forth all of the events that take place in time. 

A curse invoked upon time is, by necessity, directed at the one who acts in time, since time has no will of its own. It is only Allah’s will that is being carried out.

For this reason, al-Shâfi`î says:
The Arabs in the time of ignorance, when they were stricken with difficulty, adversity, or tragedy, used to say: “O, the vicissitudes of time!” In this way, they would attribute those events to time and curse it on that basis. However, the doer is none other than Allah Almighty, so it was as if they were cursing Allah, for He is, in truth, the one who brought about that situation. It is in consideration of this meaning that cursing time has been prohibited.

It does not mean that Allah is time itself. This meaning is clarified further along in the hadîth where Allah is quoted as saying: “I alternate the night and the day.”

Allah’s alternation of the night and the day is his disposing of the affairs and His unfolding of the events that people will either be pleased with or detest. It means that whatever occurs of good or bad during the night or during the day – throughout time in general – happens only by Allah’s will and His design; according to His knowledge and by His decree in which no one else has any share. 

Whatever Allah wills to be shall be and whatever He wills not to be shall never be. In any event, it is our duty to praise Allah, to think positively about Him, and to turn to Him in all of our affairs.

It’s really sad to see people post up their sins onG+and Facebook and Twitter. A common response you’ll hear from these people is, “Listen, if you’re going to sin then what’s the point in hiding it, are you a hypocrite?” These words are pretty shameful.

Remember the Prophet Muhammad (Sall Allahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said  “All of my Ummah (Nation) may be forgiven for their sins, except for those who publicize them...”

[Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5721]

I hadn't told them about you.
But they saw you bathing in my eyes.
I hadn't told them about you.
But they saw you in my written words.
The perfume of love cannot be concealed.
