Again, today is one of the days

“In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Time is witness that, surely, mankind suffers loss,
except for those of faith,
Who do good, and become a model of truthful living,
and together practice patience and constancy.” – Surah Al-Asr

From young we are told that for one to be a productive muslim is when one is able to balance both dunya and akhirah; but the question is, in which we can only answer it to ourself; had we actually been balancing it equally to begin with?

Today is one of the days that I am reminded of death. Today is one of the days that I am reminded of how precious time is. Today is one of the days that I sat down all alone in my room with my eyes all teary over realizing that I am just a number of days away. Today is one of the days that I asked myself, what had I been doing for the past few years of my life. Today is one of the days that I asked myself what have I done for Islam and for the ummah? Whilst I look forward for my future; to have a career, to have a degree, to get married, to make umrah again, so much more selfish ambitious plans for myself but I forgot that I might not live up till that day and I forgot that life isn’t just about me. 😦
