I am too Busy

I’M TOO BUSY

Every day as I wake up at dawn

My mind starts working the moment I yawn

There were many things to do, o dear!

That’s why I hastily did my Morning 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 them 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 zikr 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 preferred 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 the 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 a while

Cuz 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 bcoz 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 Judgment Day, I’m starting to fret

I’ve wasted my life, but it’s too late to regret

My entry to Paradise depend on my good behavior

But I’ve not done enough nor did proper prayer

My “good deed 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 deed 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”…….
