Waste of things is common in our lives. Like a waste of a mind is a terrible thing. There are 10 things in our life that we could easily use to benefit ourselves but we are either not using them, or using them incorrectly. So, The list of those 10 things and how we are wasting in our life are stated below:

A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste: 

1. Knowledge:

We waste our knowledge as we are not taking actions by using it properly.

2. Actions:

Wasting our actions because we are acting them without sincerity.

3. Wealth:

Our wealth is wasted because we use it on things that will not bring us reward. We waste our money, our status, our authority, and our resources on things that have no benefit in this life or in akhirah.

4.  Hearts:

Our hearts are wasted because they are empty from the love of Allah, the longing to go to Him, and a feeling of peace. In its place, our hearts are filled with something or someone else.

5. Bodies:

Bodies are wasted as we don’t use them in ibadah and service of Allah.

6. Waste of Love:

Our emotional love is misleading and is not towards Allah, but towards something or someone else.

7.  Time:

Our time is not used properly. So, To compensate for that which has passed is by doing what is right to make up for past wrong deeds and correcting mistakes.

8.  Intellect:

Waste of intellect involves things that are not beneficial. And that is detrimental to society and individuals.

9. Service:

Because in service of someone who will not bring us closer to Allah, or benefit in Dunya.

10. Dhikr:

wastage of dhikr because it does not affect us or our hearts.

So, this is something to think about and live life consciously and make things correct.
