Tomorrow is another day..

Tomorrow is another day…

Shut down that laptop
Switch off the lights
The day goes through my mind
Like an old soapie rerun…

Before dawn
I read Fajr in a sleepy haze
Scrambling up for the big chase
Had to beat the clock
Make it to school and work on time
For being late will surely be a crime!

They say tomorrow is another day
But
Who said it will always be that way?

I squeezed in the zuhr prayer
In an empty boardroom
Between meetings
Hurriedly breathing out my supplication
Before the crowd wondered in

They say tomorrow is another day
But
Who said it will always be that way?

So many deadlines to meet
I am actually dizzy
I am so tired
I feel beat
Rush back home for there’s still Asr to read

They say tomorrow is another day
But
Who said it will always be that way?

Shift into second gear
Homework and pyjama drill
Sat down for Magrib
My mind is at a standstill

They say tomorrow is another day
But
Who said it will always be that way?

The house quietens down
Everyone’s gone to sleep
Tomorrow’s deadline calls
My laptop beckons me

They say tomorrow is another day
But
Who said it will always be that way?

I stand before my Lord for the first time today in peace
Reading Esha with unusual ease
But what have I to say?
Have I done anything to ease the burden of my fellow muslimeen?
What have I done to spread my deen?
Perhaps tomorrow will be another day?
Forgive me my Lord
I pray
Show me a better way!
But
Thank you, My Lord for making me capable of being busy all day!
Ameen

i understand exactly what you

i understand exactly what you mean-
i feel that sometimes i'm not exactly following the deen.

SO TOUCHING

SUBHANALLAH. SO MUCH TALENT AND VERY THOUGHTFUL... THANKS FOR SHARING
