So.. I was fired from my job - what to do now?

Recommended Posts

I took a gap year (cool yeah?), and thought I would earn some money to help me in the future. Basically, I was fired after some months (with some others), because it was too expensive for the company to keep us. So, some of my plans broke down, which quite frankly sucks. 

However, I do now have too much free time (unexpected free time). I'm a bit confused. What should I use my time on? I want to be productive and not watch Youtube all the day. 

Thank you very much brothers and sisters - I need your advices! :)

I would suggest finding another job or are you in a situation where finding a job could jeopardise your greater plans you want to do in the future?

 I am also having a gap year, best decision.

I have a part-time job left. This still means that I have too much free time :)

Lol I remember you asked a question a long time ago about what to do in your free time.

But anyways, I really think you should invest your time to gain some sort of Islamic knowledge. I mean, when your gap year ends - you won't be able to invest much time. Enroll yourself in some sort of course where you can gain Islamic knowledge on a regular basis.

Apart from that:

- Gym

- Jumping around the house 

- Lawn mowing 

- Cleaning the house

- Cooking 

- Vlogging 

- Walking at night

- Long drives with friends

etc..

Maybe consider finding a new hobby or go out and socialise with friends? Maybe volunteer for some charities that promote good and offer help to those who find themselves in difficult situations? I often do things like this and it gives me a whole new appreciation for the situation I am in and what effort I did to make the world a little less difficult.

Haha, maybe I wrote that. I don't remember. This time it is different. I finished school etc.

Training is quite important. I need to start exercising again.

Yeah, socializing with friends is no problem. You can't, however, do this every day. They also have a job etc. :)

Bismehe Ta3ala,

Assalam Alikum 

Ever wondered why the longest sura in the Quran is called al baqarah?

What about surat al naml?

Do you like Islamic history?  Would you want more information on what battles Imam 3li fought in?

You might have some suras memorized, do you know the meaning behind those verses?

In your spare time, I would study the Quran.  It is so beautiful, it calms you, it brings you closer to Allah swt.  Give it a try.  

M3 Salamah, FE AMIN Allah

Apart from the advice by other brothers, you can start doing a course or a certification which will help you in your further studies and will assist you in understanding things better. 

You can also utilize the time for knowing your religion better. Look for an Islamic classes or sit with a scholar. There's one good online class if you want to give a try (It's free).

Finally when you have time, why not go for Ziyarat?  

Thank you.

I will most definitely go to ziyarah one day.

Maybe there is kheyr in this, maybe you can go for a short 6 month session to hawza?

Difficult in my situation, dear brother.

Just learn some skill or craft that can keep you alive when economy hit hard and no one wants to employ you. Be useful person!

Share with us your business card, someone around may hire you.

Still too young. My CV is not that great.

It doesn't sound like you were fired, but laid off. Have there ever been certain hobbies you've always wanted to do, but couldn't, because of school? You could also look for another part-time job to continue the savings you started.

Yeah, correct. I was laid off. 

Hobbies, well, it is basically football lol. What I didn't have time to was to take a driving license. I need to begin on that.
