Losing My Way

Lost was I without my imaan
Sitting beside me was shaytaan
Seeing as I never used to pray
I slowly started losing my way
I was leading the life of an idiotic cursed fool
Not remembering the Almighty and His blessed Rasool
Until I saw my brothers united in the remembrance of the Almighty
I suddenly realised my mistakes and grasped my imaan tightly
Music has become forbidden to me
A true believer is what I aim to be
He who fails to see the Almighty’s signs
Will surely pay for each and every one of his crimes
The Almighty truly is the king of the righteous and fair
The All-Knowing hasn’t placed a burden upon us that we can’t bear
What you wish for yourself is what you should wish for others
Remembering that we are all Muslim brothers
Whilst we walk around in lacoste and Armani
Our brothers are dying for droplets of panee
We have shelter, food and clothing yet we complain
Whilst our brothers have neither and are in pain
The devil has covered our eyes
And whispers in our ears only lies
When we read prayer he sighs
Trying to keep us from paradise
As a clear Warner our Rasool was sent
Lets give up our bad habits and repent
