1. A morning person gets more done!
He knows that he can get more work done in one day than spending the whole week of working only evenings/ nights.
"Allah made the early hours blessed for my Ummah."
"It is He (Allah) who has appointed the night a covering for you and sleep for a rest. The day He has appointed for rising."
2. A regular & punctual person builds up momentum!
She knows that to make best use of her time on a permanent basis, she will have to do certain things regularly, and this requires her to be punctual. When our bodies become accustomed to doing things at a certain time and place, it will become easier and easier to do them (e.g., fasting or reading).
“The deeds which Allah loves the most are those done regularly, even if they are small.”
3. A proactive person makes use of all available time!
He is never satisfied with doing the minimum. He will learn what he does not know, try what he hasn't tried before, and succeed where he has never succeeded.
“Take advantage of five matters before five other matters: your youth, before you become old; and your health, before you fall sick; and your richness, before you become poor; and your free time, before you become busy; and your life, before your death.”
4. A helpful & cheerful person is full of life!
“Every act of goodness is charity”(Hadith, Muslim).
“Acts of kindness protect one from ruin wrought by evil. Sadaqah (charity) given secretly appeases the anger of the Lord, and a gift to strengthen the ties of relationship (blood relatives) increases one's life span. All good deeds are sadaqah, and those who do acts of kindness in this world are also the same people in the other world. Those who do misdeeds in this world are the same people in the other world. The first of those who shall enter Paradise are the people who do acts of kindness.”
5. A focused person never goes astray!
He knows what he wants and how to get there. When he starts something good, he always sees it through. He isn't easily de-motivated, distracted, or derailed by things that happen around him.
