Don't Watch Cooking Shows
It is about 6:30 PM, and sunset is still an hour and a half away. You have read the Qur'an for the day, you have done everything you can think of to try to pass the time. So, you think to yourself, why not watch some TV? Inevitably, you come across a cooking show...and you don't change the channel. You continue to watch the savory sizzling of beef, or chicken, or fish (no pork) in the frying pan, the delectable sauce boiling ever so serenely in the saucepan, the tantalizingly thick and creamy icing mixing ever so lusciously in the electronic mixer, which turns ever so beautifully on the screen...
Do not torture yourself like this...change the channel.
