way of life was a way of ravage.
However, they were eloquent speakers,
who cared for their guests,

He was known for his
dignity and was called Amin,
Eventually he would be taught by Al-Hakeem.
He was then given the Message, and was sent to convey,
was given the truth, he invited to the noblest way.
There were those
who accepted it, and there were those who turned away,
There were those who
were guided and there were those who went astray.
Tension grew between
the groups as the days past by,
Muslims would be tied to the sand and left
in the sun to fry.
The tension got so bad the Muslims went to Madina,
They were bringing Islam to a new arena.
The ummah was
growing and the Message was spreading,
Towards justice and greatness the
ummah was heading.
There were several battles, the ummah was
But nothing could stop them; they weren't going to be
The ummah was spreading against all odds,
When you're helped
by Allah, danger is just a facade.
The Message was dispatched and the
Messenger's life was completed,
The ummah was saddened but was nowhere near

justice of Islam was spreading like wild flowers.
As our ummah was
spreading across the lands,
The treasures of the world fell in our
As the generations came and the generations went,
some changes in the ummah that we didn't prevent.
We started to see
Muslims who were insincere,
Because love for the world happened to
Leaders began to ignore the rules of Allah and act on
They did this in hope of the treasure they wanted to
Somewhere along the line, kings started to
Somewhere along the line the ummah started drinking
With rage in our hearts, we were fighting each other,
swords in our hands, we turned towards our brothers.
What happened to
the ummah, where were we heading?
We ignored the Message, so corruption was
The ummah that grew and became so great,
Was losing its
honor, it began to dissipate.
As the time went on, the ummah remained
The great empire of Islam was reduced to stubble.
the story comes to us, the majority of whom don't even pray,
I don't even
think we practice the deen nearly halfway.
Alcohol is rampant, even
during the days of Ramadan,
Zena is everywhere, don't act like its not
Our unity's been shattered and we've left the Quran,
don't wake up for fajr, we wake up after dawn.
I've met 'Muslim'
children, who don't even know Allah's name,
We were once great, but when we

We've lost our power, were the
laughing stock of the nations,
Because we left the deen, we left our only
However, as a mercy from Allah, the Message was still
