Demi Masa

This is my favorite nasyid song, performed by Raihan from Malyasia. It is inspired by Surah Al -‘Ashr, my favorite from Al-Qur’an. Everytime I sing it, I feel tremble inside. Check out the translation of Al- ‘Ashr in English:

The Time

By (the Token of) Time (through the Ages)

verily Man is in loss

except such as have Faith, and do rieghteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth, and of Patience and Constancy.

Now let’s see Raihan’s lyrics:

Demi masa…
Sesungguhnya manusia kerugian
Melainkan…
Yang beriman dan beramal saleh
Ah…

Demi masa…
Sesungguhnya manusia kerugian
Melainkan…
Nasihat kepada kebenaran dan kesabaran
Ah…

#reff 01
Gunakan kesempatan yang masih diberi
Moga kita takkan menyesal
Masa usia kita jangan disiakan
Kerna ia takkan kembali

#ref 02
Ingat lima perkara, sebelum lima perkara
Sihat sebelum sakit
Muda sebelum tua, kaya sebelum miskin
Lapang sebelum sempit
Hidup sebelum mati

Demi masa…
Sesungguhnya manusia kerugian
Melainkan…
Yang beriman dan beramal saleh
Ah…

How I love this song so much!!
