O Mother Palestine

Don't you cry oh mother Palestine,
For your land does not give birth to cowards but brave warriors;
warriors who are willing to lay down their lives to protect your honour everyday.

Don't you shed any tears oh mother Palestine,
For your land gives birth to mothers like Mariam Farhat - 'The Mother of Martyrs', who despite losing three sons to the never ending war only wished she had 100 more for martyrdom.

Be proud oh mother Palestine,
For your land gives birth to the bravest of childrens, who instead of being scared utter powerful words like, 'the rockets may be above us, but they have forgotten Allah is above them' subhanallah.

Do not despair oh mother Palestine,
For In shaa allah one day your country will truly be free
From the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.
Where there will be no more fighter jets in the sky
instead you will witness beautiful birds flying by;
Where every morning children will open their eyes with a smile on their face,
instead of fear in their eyes;
And where olive tress will rise once again,
making Palestine a lush green land...in shaa allah!
