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 funI 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 mosqueI'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 handI'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 thereI've no time at all,
that's all i careI 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 rightTo 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..
