I could not agree with you more, so much to do and so little time. I like to ponder over sections like the 2.62 and try to understand why Our Creator would have dictated in such a fashion, why give preference to the one that refused to accept and also kept others away from the Last Prophet.
I try to devote all possible time in helping anyone, I do not aspect any rewards, I perhaps will get mine in the next life, and I have received from Allah more than my share in this life.
We learn so much from the wrong, we learn so much when others hurt us and in all case Allah has intervened and made it right. I could not think of a single instance that who ever hurt my wife or I and what ever they did to us, Allah found I way to make them suffer, it maybe coincidences, but this is what has happen to them.
My wife and I do voluntary work with a Catholic group, they know we are Muslims and they respect us, they never once told us to accept their religion. Most the people being helped by this organization are Muslims, as the Muslims do not have this kind of facility (I am working on it) at the moment.
Rests assure that Allah will guide you as long as you believe in Our Only Creator.
My respect to you
