Everyday as i wake up at dawn,
My mind start working the moment i yawn,
There were many things to do, o dear!
That's why i hastily did my Subuh prayer!
I didn't have the time to sit longer to praise the Lord,
To me rushing out after prayer is nothing odd...
Since school, i had been busy every minute,
Completing my tutorials and handing it in,
My ECAs took up most of my time always,
No time did i have to Allah to pray
Too many things to do and zikir is rare
For Allah, I really had no time to spare...
When i grew up and started my career,
Working all day to secure my future,
When I reached home, I prefered to have fun,
I chatted on the phone but i didn't read the Quran.
I spent too much time surfing the Internet!
Sad to say, my faith was falling flat...
The only time i have left is weekends,
During which i prefer window shopping with friends.
I couldn't spare time to go to the mosque,
I'm too busy, that's the BIG EXCUSE...
I did my five prayers but did so quickly,
After prayer, I didn't sit longer to reflect quietly...
I didn't have time to help the needy ones,
I was loaded with work as my precious time runs...
No time at all to visit a sick Muslim friend,
To orphans and elderly, I hardly lent a hand!
I'm too busy to do community service,
When there were gatherings, I helped the least...
My life was already full of stress!
So i didn't counsel a Muslim in distress.
I didn't spend much time with my family,
B'coz i thought, doing so is a waste of time...
No time to share with non-Muslim about Islam,
Even though I know, inviting causes no harm!
No time to do Sunnah prayers at all,
All these contribute to my imaan's fall...
I'm busy here and busy there,
I've no time at all, that's all i care!
I went for religious lessons, just once in awhile,
Coz i'm too busy making a pile...
I worked all day and i slept all night!
Too tired for Tahajjud and it seemed not right!
To me, earning a living was already tough,
So i only did basic deeds but that's not enough...
No time at all, to admire God's creation!
No time to praise Allah and seek His Compassion!
Although I know how short is my life,
For Islam, I really didn't strive...
Finally the day comes, when the Lord calls for me,
And I stood before Him with my Life's History!
I feel so guilty b'coz i should have prayed more,
Isn't that what a Muslim lives for?
To thank Allah and do more good deeds,
And the Quran is for us all to read...
Now at Judgement Day, I'm starting to fret,
I've wasted my life but it's too late to regret...
My entry to Paradise depends on my good behaviour,
But i've not done enough nor did proper prayer!
My "good deeds book" is given from my right!
An angel opened my "book" and read out my plight...
Then the angel chided me...
"O You Muslim servant, you are the one,
Who is given enough time, yet not much is done!
Do you know that your faith is loose?
Saying "no time" is only an excuse...
Your "good deeds book" should be filled up more
With all the good work you stood up for...
Hence, I only recorded those little good deeds,
As I say this, I know your eyes will mist...
I was about to write some more, you see
But i did not have, THE TIME to list".......
