I'M TOO BUSY Everyday as i woke up at dawn My mind started working the moment i yawned 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 handlining in it My thesis took up most of my time always No time did i have to Allah i praise too many things to do and dhzikr is rare for Allah, I really had no time to spare.. When i've grown up, I started my career working all day to secure my future When I reached home, I prefer to have fun I chatted on the phone but i didn't read the Quran 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 CAUSE... I did my five prayers but did so quickly After prayer, I didn't sit longer or 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 silly... 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 lifeFor 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..
