**5 obligatory prayers**.. (

*You'll be shocked*).. However, I am not the best in mathematics but I'll attempt to answer this question.. (I appreciate if anyone correct my mistakes)..

Lets say Mr.Ahmed is 60 years old, and reached puberty at the age of 15. (Thats 45 years of being accountable of his actions before Allah swt (Allahu wa'alam).. However, many people reach the age of puberty even earlier than that. Nevertheless, lets calculate.....

__Sleeping__(

**per day**) 8hours

(

**Per week**) 56 hours (8X7days)

(

**per month**) 224 hours (56X4)

(

**per year**) 2688 hours (224X12)

(

**in 45 years**)

**hours (2688X45)**

__120,960__

__Praying__

**(per day)**25 mintues (5mintues X 5 prayer)

**(per week)**2H/55 min (25X7 days)

**(Per month)**7 hours (175minX4 weeks)

**(Per year)**84 hours (7X12)

**(in 45 years)****hours (84x45)**__3780__So far Mr.Ahmed

**was sleeping for 120,960 hours in 45 years**, from the age of 15 till he was 60 years old. And

**he was praying for 3780 hours in 45 years**from the age of 15 till he was 60 years old. Right!

Lets find out how many hours in 1 year:

__Number of hours per year:__(day) 24 hours

(week) 168 hours (24X7)

(month) 672 hours (168X4)

(year) 8064 hours (672X12)

There are

**8064 hours a year**(correct me if I am wrong).

*The number of years Ahmed spent sleeping & praying:*

*Sleeping:***120960**/

**8064**=

**15**

(No. hours sleeping) (No. of hours in a year) (No.of years sleeping)

in 45 years

__Praying:__

**8064**/**3780**=**2**.1333333333 (2 years)*(No.of hours in a year) (No.of hours praying (No.of years praying)*

*in 45 years)*

*Therefore, Ahmed (*

**60 years old**)**was sleeping for 15 years**, and**praying the 5 obligatory prayers for only 2 years**. Can you imagine adding your childhhod, schooling & employment for 15 years, & time wasted.. In addition, can you add the number of times that we missed prayers. Subhanallah..*Is this life worth it?... Why are we so attached to it?.. Is it not the time for us to realize that no matter how old we get, we aren't doing our best to please Allah (swt). Many youths believe that whenever they get older they will be in the striaght path, isnt the above result make us reconsider many things and truly aim for the hereafter, without negleting present life....*

*Inshallah we can compete in doing the good deeds, because personally I have done nothing yet...*

*May Allah (swt) protect us, bless us, and forgive our mistakes, because no matter what we do, are deeds isnt enough, but lets beg Allah (swt) for His mercy..*

*(Correct my calculations, coz I am the worst in maths)..*

*Wassalam Alykom..*
