As'Salamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,
 
I would like to share a beautiful poem today
 
Do I Still Have Time?
 
by Saad Rais
 
 
As the night settles in,
The body yearns for sleep.
I lay in my bed,
Gazing at the roof,
Letting my thoughts wonder endlessly
Will I wake up a believer, or a disbeliever?
Will I wake up?
Count my deeds! Count my deeds!
What deeds?
Count my sins! Count my sins!
O those sins!
I still have time.
Ask for forgiveness! Ask for forgiveness!
I whisper the shahadah over and over like a madman.
The warmth of my blanket beckons me to sleep,
My wondering thoughts become more distant,
The eyes give in,
And I know not if I will wake up

Nice peom brother, may Allah make the Shahadah our last words, end our life when we are most close to him, make our graves a garden from Janna, gather us with his prophets, make the Ferdous our residence and bless us with the greatest gift of all!
to grant our eyes the pleasure of looking at him subhanu wa tala!
