Always Look for the Beneficial Things

beneficial thing

One of the noble morals taught by Islam is to stay away from things that are not useful. And use time in matters that beneficial for worldly affairs or the affairs of the hereafter.

In a hadith from Abu Hurairah (may Allah blesses him), that the Prophet (ﷺ) says,

مِنْ حُسْنِ إِسْلَامِ اَلْمَرْءِ, تَرْكُهُ مَا لَا يَعْنِيهِ

“A sign of man’s good observance of Islam (his piety) is to keep away from that which does not concern him” [Tirmidhi. And, he says that this hadith is hasan].

Allah ﷻ also says,

وَلَا تَقْفُ مَا لَيْسَ لَكَ بِهِۦ عِلْمٌ ۚ إِنَّ ٱلسَّمْعَ وَٱلْبَصَرَ وَٱلْفُؤَادَ كُلُّ أُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ كَانَ عَنْهُ مَسْـُٔولًا

“And do not pursue that of which you have no knowledge. Indeed, the hearing, the sight and the heart – about all those [one] will be questioned” [al-Isra’ 17:36].

Inquiring into such matters comes under the heading of asking too much and focusing time on matters which serve no purpose and do not lead to doing any good deeds or attaining any goodness in this world or the hereafter. [Taken from: islamqa.info].
