Life’s not so simple
As seen through thine eyes
For each word that is spoken
Conceals many lies.

And laughter and games
That seem innocent
Wastes away time
That should be well spent.

The world all aglitter
A dazzling display
Persuades with its beauty
Don’t worship – let’s play.

Blind in our purpose
We roam through the land
Enjoying life’s riches
Against Allah’s command.

Our graves lie before us
The time drawing near
Have we reflected?
Have we no fear?

Our deeds will be counted
No chance to repeat
Witness to all actions
Our hands and our feet.

So be firm in your purpose
Do not compromise
Live true Islam
Before your demise.

The heart of a Muslim

May it always grieve

For the burdens of sins

And good deeds not achieved.
