The diaries are full and the calendars have changed,
A new year has begun; new pages have been turned.
Can we remember all the past years lessons which we’ve learned?
As the new year dawns, which part of our lives will be better arranged.
The time goes by so very fast,
And before we know it, this year will also be a thing of the past,
So we need to do as much as we can,
All we need to do is make a plan.
The time seems so short for all that needs to be done,
There’s so much to learn and so much to do,
Wasted days can never be undone,
We have to pray that we can make a difference too.
It’s sad to see that for some people thing stay the same,
Year in and year out, there is no change,
Relentless work and play seems like fair game,
When we don’t take the time to learn and grow.
The biggest question we need to ask is this:
Am I doing enough for the world to come?
Will my condition be good or will it bad?
Will I be left, alone, doomed and sad?
Our Creator is Indeed the Most Merciful,
He has given us more time to be dutiful,
To Him should we direct our efforts,
This is the only way in which we will gain benefits.
May Allah Almighty give each one of us a wonderful year ahead. A year filled with blessings, peace and contentment; where we learn the most important lessons in life and strive to do deeds that will earn us Allah’s pleasure. Time is going very fast these days, and before we know it, the year will be progressing until its December once more. It’s no use making resolutions at the beginning of the year only to let our goals fizzle out and die. We should be making resolutions throughout the year, and in fact, throughout our lives. We should be striving to be better in all respects so that one day, when the inevitable happens and we have to stand before our Lord, at least maybe we will have something to show for our short time in this world.
May Allah Almighty give us the best, May He fulfil our needs, help us in our affairs, assist us to achieve our goals, and make it easy for us to make the best of our time. Inshaa-Allah Ameen!
TO ALL OF YOU - ALL THE BEST FOR THE YEAR AHEAD!
