Wherever you are..pray to Allah..

video

O people

In a hut made of tin and clay

A small boy dreams away Of clean water and a meal a day

And not to fear mines as he plays each day

O people

Somewhere dark and out of the way

Aids has found yet another prey

To save his life he just couldn’t pay

Tell me what we’re going to do

For our brothers in Durban

For our sisters in Darfur

Show me what we’re going to do

Are we just going to sit there?

Nice and cosy on our armchairs

Will we not even make a prayer?

You might ask yourself

Why should I help these people?

They’ll tell you why We’re not so different from you

We have dreams just like you

But they were buried with the bodies of our loved ones

O people

Are we deaf, dumb, and blind?

What is going through our minds?

Don’t we care for the rest of mankind?

O people

We claim to love peace and justice

Why do we preach what we don’t practice?

Let’s help them out of this darkness

Tell me what we’re going to do ?

For our brothers in Ethiopia

For our sisters in Rwanda

Show me what we’re going to do?

Are we just going to sit there?

Nice and cosy on our armchairs

Will we not even make a prayer?!!

make a prayer-sami yusuf

beautiful...studying overseas allows me to experience performing the solah outdoor..at the car park..on the snow, by the waterfall, inside a fitting room, under the stairs, even in an exam hall..cool eyh!
