Far away you lived all these while
distant from your creator
yet he hasn’t gotten hold of you
how merciful is your creator
you wake up every morning
and you continue with your daily deeds
immersed deeply in sinful act
yet you forgot totally your Sustainer
disobeying the One who made you
have you forgotten?
that surely one day you’ll meet them
and surely you’ll account for your deeds
whether you observe your daily salawat
or whether you always steal from it.
You lived all this while,
being only a Muslim by name
not even bother to know more about your lord
totally immersed in the worldly pursuit
obeying your boss and disobeying your creator
yet people keep dying day by day
and this doesn’t sound a note of warning
but your creator has been merciful
waiting for you to repent
when will you realize?
That all which has been happening,
either the good or the bad,
the sweet or the bitter
everything is just a test.
think deeply and ask yourself
Isn’t it time for you!
To start obeying your creator,
so you can face Him with a bright face
on the day you will account for your deeds
and prepare well for that journey
which you ‘ll embark on alone one day
Isn’t it time?
