What Can You Do in Ten Minutes?
Here is a list of 10 things that would not take more then 10 minutes of our time. And if we knew what good these actions bring for our happiness in this life and the next, we would spend our life in dedication to these deeds:
Pray 2 Rakahs (Salatul Duha) anytime after sunrise and before Dhuhr
Abu Hurayrah - radi Allahu 'anhu - said, "My Khaleel - Allah's Messenger sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam - advised me to do three things (1) That I fast 3 days of each month and (2) To pray 2 rakahs of Duha and (3) That I do my witr before sleeping." - Bukhari and Muslim
Pray for Rasul Allah - sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam
He - sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam - said, "Whoever prays for me once, Allah blesses that person 10 times (because of that prayer)." - Muslim
Repeat what the Mu'adhdhin is saying
Abdullah ibn Amr narrates: a man said,"O Messenger of Allah, the ones that call the people to prayer receive more reward than us." So Allah's Messenger - sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam - replied, "Say what they say, then when you finish pray for anything and you shall be given it." - Abu Dawood
Say 'Subhan Allah - How far Allah is from imperfection!' 100 times
Mus'ab ibn Sa'd said: My father told me that he was with Allah's Messenger - sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam - when he remarked, "Does any one of you not have the ability to attain 1000 good deeds (hasanaat) every day? Let him do tasbeeh (Subhan Allah!) 100 times, it will be written for him 1000 hasanat or 1000 sins will be wiped from his record." - Muslim
Play with your children for the sake of Allah
Jabir narrates: We were with Allah's Messenger - sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam - invited for a meal when we passed al-Husayn playing in the alley with some Ansar children. Allah's Messenger - sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam - walked a little faster to go and play with him. He stuck out his hand to take him, but Al-Husayn ran here and there squealing gleefully until Allah's Messenger caught him. Then he - sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam - held his chin with one hand and his head with the other and kissed Al-Husayn and hugged him. - A sound hadith narrated by Bukhari in al adab al mufrad
Make Dua' often during times of ease
Rasul Allah - sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam - said, "Whoever it pleases that Allah answers his supplications during times of calamity and hardship, let him increase his supplication amidst the times of ease." - narrated by Tirmidhi and Al Hakim who classified it as authentic.

this shows us how merciful Allah is
also was reading THE MESSAGE the Ramadan issue...artcle by Mohammed Khodr..saying somthing similiar.
example " if u pray obligatory prayer in congregation 70 prayers by 27 prayers, so thts 70 by 27 for each obligatory prayer which equals 1890 prayers. at end of day, if u pray 5 prayers in such a fashion u will earn rewards of 9450 prayers. multiply by 30 days, we get 283 500 prayers which is more than 150 yrs of prayer! "
anyway more of that but a bit to think about.....how much we really can do in one day.
