STAND ALONE

Chorus
I am not afraid to stand alone.
I am not afraid to stand alone. If Allah is by my side
I am not afraid to stand alone. Everything will be alright
I am not afraid to stand alone. Gonna keep my head up high

Single mother raising her children
Now she’s a Muslim
Started praying and wearing a headscarf
Was a healing for her heart

Struggling with no one to lean on
But with prayer she would be strong
Got a job but then she was laid off
Got a better education and it paid off

Got a call for a job that she dreamed of
Close by, great pay -she was in love – they said…
They brought her in, said she’s the number one pick
You got the job, but you gotta lose the outfit”

It’s a tough position that they put me in
Cause Ive been struggling with my two children
But I’ll continue looking for a job again
My faith in my religion now will never bend

Chorus

Peer pressure, they were insisting
And I was resisting
Some days I felt I would give in
Just wanted to fit in

I know when I’m praying and fasting’
They be teasing and laughing
So I called to my Lord for the power
For the strength every day, every hour…

Then one day there’s a new Muslim teacher
Single mom and the people respect her
Just seeing her strength I get stronger
They can break my will no longer

You don’t see me sweating when they’re jokes’re cracking
Never see me cussing’ with my pants saggin’
I aint never running yo I’m still standing
I ride with Allah to the very end

Chorus

I am not afraid to stand alone…

Now, I’m a tough one, who can bear their blows
The rest play dumb, they don’t dare say no
Scared of being shunned, but its clear they know
I aint never gonna run, I aint scared no more.

Man, these sisters be resolute
Never stressed when the rest say they wasn’t cute
And the get the respect of the other youth
Come best with the dress yo and that’s the truth

These sisters are strong gonna hand it down
So me I’m a brotha gotta stand my ground
I aint gonna shudder, when the gangs around
Peer pressure whatever, its my planet now

Others may fall, I’mma hold my own
With Allah’s help I’ll be strong as stone
And I’mma be brave and let Al Islam be shown
Cause you I know I not afraid to stand alone

Your Lord is Watching

11 o clock at night and now your lying in your bed, cause see your
Thinking about the plan that your rehearsing in your head,
Your waiting for your family to doze right off to sleep, And then you
slip out of the house to where you and your shorty meet

Rolled up to the party and your strolling cause its hardly
Even 12:00am and now the party’s getting started
3:00am you heading back into your place and then
you climbed back in the window you left open just in case

Your think that your so slick, you know just how to trick
and pull a hoax upon your folks and they dont notice it.
You know that you should not, I think that you forgot
Like any crime, its only time before you getting caught

Chorus
Your lord is watching and he knows every step that you take
And he knows every plan that you make
And he can catch your every mistake
And he can catch your every mistake

The personal computer is a real amazing thing
with all the knowledge it can bring to our young men and young women
But you know when you have been, using it for doing sin
Find a hidden place within, and then the downloading begins

And quickly you begin to get, savy with the internet
The devil whispers and convinces you that you aint sinning yet
You know its wrong and if your caught they all will be upset, you
learn to close the window quick so no one catches wind of it

Why do we think this, there’s no consequences
Your lord may let it slide a bit but that just gives you confidence
he can expose you, to all those who knows you
And when that happens dont come back and say i never told you that…

As Samee’ (The All Hearing)
Albaseer (All Seeing),
AlRaqeeb, (The Watchful One)
Al Khabeer,( The Aware)
Inna rabbaka ala kulli shayin qadeer
(Truly your lord is aware of all things)

Chorus

Now everyday that passes, you get bolder in your plans, and
You start scheming in your classes, and start cheating on exams
Your great in fooling masses, and start running little scams, You know
Your sneakiness surpasses every other guy in town.

But then the day arrives now that your Lord had always written
You think that no ones watching, and things just start to happen
The window you left open drew attention of your neighbor
And so they caught you in the act, as you came back in the night

Your sister has a project due and you are off at school
and she’s using your computer cause your folks said it was cool
And she comes across some pictures that you forgot to erase
she shows it to your family and soon your in disgrace

The plans you invented, You’ll wish you had ended,
And when you see the Hell fire you’ll really resent it
Cause sooner or later, you’ll face your creator
And never for a moment think your knowledge is greater

Chorus

STILL STRONG

In my house, minding my biz
Sunday morning doing chores and I’m watching my kids
You know how it is, they chilling watching Sesame Street
My wife, showing me how to cook something to eat

Now this is my life, that is my wife, those are my kids
I’m working hard so we can comfortably live
Knock, Knock, somebody is at the front door
Honey, I’ll get it I need to take a break from my chores

Knock, Knock, it just went from knock to a pound
Now who is this clown, trying to take my smile to a frown
Knock, Knock, it just went from pound to a bang
Now this is insane and now I hear them yelling my name

I open the door, and what do I see
Its like 23 agents looking at me
They threw the cuffs on my hands and my face to the floor
Dragged away, my family crying at the front door

Chorus
AAAAGGGGHHHHH, we’re not breaking, we’re still strong
No matter what they do we’re moving on

AAAAGGGGHHHHH, we’re not breaking, we’re still strong
No matter what they do we’re moving on

We’re still moving on

And they was asking me that and asking me this
Accusing me of being on somebody’s terrorist list
I had to resist, I want a lawyers all I would say
But they said that they would torture me all night and all day
And so I would pray for God to give me strength to get through
If the evidence I knew, I would prove it untrue
Osama Bin who, they want to say I support him
If I don’t give in, I’ll never see my family again
Its been more than 10 months since they dragged me from home
4 hours questioning and 20 in my cell alone..
Its not Islam or Christianity, Its all of the humanity
The religion of vanity drives people to insanity
My soul and my anatomy are patient with calamity
I’ll never use profanity just let me see my family

Chorus
So you wanna break me? nah I’m still strong,
Sti–ll wanna hate me? I´ll prove you wrong
wait and you’ll see – I was right – all along,
but as for now let me do- do my thing, let me sing this song.
Oh wanna break me? nah I’m still strong,
still wanna hate me? I´ll prove you wrong
wait and you’ll see – I was right – all along,
but as for now let me do- do my thing, let me sing this song.

This is wrong, so wrong, so many people know its wrong
Now that you found me you got to go and sing that song
For freedom, justice and equality for all
‘Aint no justice when we let them illegally change laws
So many flaws in my case and I need you to find them all
You’re my lawyer so go tell the judge whats really going on

Yeah, let me see now, where do I start
Still the ANTAGONIST, still playing same part
Same old script, yeah same old drama
Only this time — you trying link me with Osama
Yep, its me! — public enemy number one
Your specific intelligence nothing but a con
So tell me mr. officer what you got on me?
-TRUMPED UP charges man, clear for all to see
-What did I do now? what is my crime
Please can you tell me why I’ma be doing this time.
Is it coz I put my head on the ground? my foot in the sink?
There gotta be something, man! Tell me what you found
Is it my beard, or the funny way I walk?
The rhymes I be spitting? Or the way I was born to talk?
I’m an Innocent convict, victim of this era
Oppression in the guise of a war on terror
– My lyrical pen is still mightier than their sords
That’s why I be in the pen praying to my loord
– Like P said, they won’t let- me -out
The faith in my heart that’s what its all- about
I’m one of them mooozlems, so best lock me up
That’s why I’m rrright here – stuck in this rut
Keep my head high cant no one take my pride
Nothing but a test from Him, we gotta take in stride.

LIFE’S WORTH

Summer night on the 4th of July and I’m hanging outside
I take my kids downtown to watch fireworks fly
As the light flicker in my daughters eyes
I think about the plight of a war torn child
And how these same sights and sounds make them cry

And how much is this life worth, is what I say to you
As I sit here right now, watching the evening news
And how much is this life worth, cause it cant be true
We’re dying over different points of view
So how much is this life worth to you.

Yah Allah, Yah Allah

It five o-clock and Im rushing home like I always do
I call ahead to my wife and kids and say I’ll be there soon
I put the radio on, and the announcer speaks
Of a man rushing home just in time to see
His house blown to rubble with his family beneath

And how much is this life worth, is what I say to you
As I sit here right now, watching the evening news
And how much is this life worth, cause it cant be true
We’re dying over different points of view
So how much is this life worth to you.

Yah Allah, oh Allah

How much is this life worth,
How much is this life worth,
How much is this life worth,
How much is this life worth,

We say we stand for justice for all, but what about babies when bombs fall
How much is their life worth to you
And when we say we answer the call of Allah
But is it the way of Rasoolullah
How much is his life worth to you

Yah Allah, help us make dueyeah

And how much is this life worth, is what I say to you
As I sit here right now, watching the evening news
How much is this life worth, cause it can’t be true
That we’re dying over different points of view
So how much is this life worth to you.

So how much is this life worth to you

PRAY BEFORE

Cause it can happen to you
You working there hard at your grind
But now it’s about that time
But yo you got deadlines to make
And your boss is
Riding your back so you make them dates
And now you thinking about
Your projects, your deadlines,
The corporate ladder climb,
Tryin’ make your light shine
Your minds in outer space
And far as your salat you wait
Wait, wait
The prayers bout to leave you son
But now your troubles just begun
Before you hit the bar of the space
You hold your chest
Cause now it starts to palpitate
You look to your officemate
Saying this ain’t the only thing
With less time left
Losing your breath
Now your rushing to the stairs
Your tripping and you don’t know where
Before you hit the lobby door,
You hit the lobby floor
Lights out heart stopping ain’t breathing No more
But at my best guess, This akh has been blessed
Cause to his distress Comes an hijabi EMS
With the paddles in the air Vifib type of gear
With her partner standing near, She’s yelling out clear
Brought ‘em back from flat lining
He said the whole scene was like Dhikr bead remindin
He says sister please, We best get a move on For they call the adhan
I gotta pray before I’m prayed on
Chorus

I got so many excuses that I use when the athans made
I’m telling lies don’t even hesitate
I tell the people I’ve already prayed
I got this thing I gotta do and I’m already late
Don’t lecture me don’t want no fitnah or drama
I just need to get out before they make the iqamaPEACE
I’m cruising down the avenue the boulevard
All of a sudden, Oh my God
No fender bender I was critically injured
In the hospital bed my family thought I was deadMAN
I never though it’d happen to me
But I can tell you I was happy to see
All of my boys coming in the emergency room taking a knee
And every single one was praying for me
Eventually I made it through. Al-hamdu-lilah
I thank Allah. A second chance to make salah
Chorus

When it comes to not praying the best, we be notorious
Not focused on our Lord most glorious
A reminder to our self is what the story was
Just talking the talk, that really worries us,
We get caught up in this fleeting world like Morpheus
Making money or getting the Bachalorrious
We keep forgetting that prayer, it makes us victorious
both In this world and the next life, He’s rewarding us,
Furious, cause I know I can do better
Recording us, at every show in any weather..
And warning us, when the souls are brought together
The first thing checked are my prayers on the regular
Wake up! never waste this breath
Everybody every soul will get a taste of death
Pray like it’s your last prayer cause that date is set
And that your going straight to heaven, NEVER make that bet

TALA’AL BADRU

He eyes slowly rising
Sunrise warms the horizon
Sand dunes form in the distant
He’s up and out in an instant

The crowd there, all were waiting
Watching and, anticipating
A man appears from afar
Could it be the one sent by Allah

He shouts “Here comes the prophet!”
His face is a light that drives out the darkness
Words are alive – his message is living
Joy everywhere, our voices are singing

Chorus
Tala’al-Badru ‘alayna,
min thaniyyatil-Wada’
wajaba al-shukru ‘alayna,
ma da’a lillahi da’

Ayyuha al-mab’uthu fina
ji’ta bi-al-amri al-muta’
Ji’ta sharrafta al-Madinah
marhaban ya khayra da’

He steps and reaches to touch
This man who suffered so much
His own troubles could not compare
To the Prophet scorned everywhere

He was shunned away by his own kin
Ridiculed and stoned by the townsmen
His blood was shed for the truth
But never was he vengeful or rude.

Then the Prophet turns and he smiles
Radiance that spreads out for miles
Embraces his hand with kindness and care
His heart sings out for all those to hear!

Chorus

Wakes up, alarm clock is ringing
Moonlight, sun hasn’t risen
Faint sound of cars on the street
But inside his heart he feels peace

He starts recalling the dream
The Prophets face he has seen
Remembers well the tradition
In a dream it truly will be him

Allah, oh what a feeling
So many years he followed his teachings
And this is greatest time in his life
He prays to Allah and sings through the night

Chorus

Welcome, best caller to Gods way
With a word to be obeyed
Like a bright moon in the valley of darkness we lay
2x

THE MESSAGE

Gotta know who your enemy is and your enemy is Shaytan!
So many people wanted Native Deen to cross over
Because the message that we’re giving has the potential to bring the people together forever
And you look around and see the people trying to mean like a soldier, hard like a bolder
They don’t want to give love they just want to be cold but I tell you that they only getting colder
Until the line up in their rows and they put their feet together and they shoulder to shoulder
But your enemy don’t want it so you better do it now and don’t wait until you older
That is the message that we’re giving and we gonna give it again and again until the struggling is over

CHORUS
Our enemy wants us to give up on the things that we know we should do
But you and I, we have a conscience and to our soul we gotta be true
But some people, some of the people support the enemy ‘cause they don’t understand
But that’s alright, ‘aint no problem ‘cause Native Deen will still do all that we can

And I can go on and on about how our enemy lies
On and on about how your enemy hates and despises you
Open your eyes its true, your enemy ‘aint gonna sympathize with you

He will continue to his plot, to split and divide
Have people from the same faith on opposite sides
Have people for the wrong cause willing to die
Have you kill a thousand people and not even try

Have all the young brothers just trying to be fly
And all the young sisters, they don’t want to be shy
Forget the Army be all you can be for Allah
And never settle just to get by

CHORUS
Gotta know who your enemy is and your enemy is Shaytan!

Once upon a time on a special day
Right before the last Prophet passed away
He gathered all the people and what did he say
The message of the Deen, did I relay?

He said worship God only
Came with good news to the believers to teach us
To give from ourselves and our money
If you want the real life that’s next you have to invest
and put something on it

Sent to all mankind to warn us about the terrible day that upon us
You’ll be on our knees begging please,
sweating to your neck for your deeds
Mothers will be dropping their babies
People will be running like they drunk and they crazy

Seek refuge in Allah from being lazy
Get to work now ‘aint no time for if, buts and maybe
Do you know what I mean?
Clap your hands if you now what I mean

With the Name of Allah you and ask the people did Native Deen deliver the message
You can ask the people did Native Deen deliver the message
You can ask the people did Native Deen deliver the message
You can ask the people did Native Deen deliver the message

HOLD THE LINE

Lets think to back, back when we started
We were just souls with one target
This was a course that we both charted
But how did we end broken hearted

Ohhhh.

Can faith pull us through
Don’t know what I should do
But ask of you

Please please please hold the line now,
I swear please hold the line now
Can see what happened to us
Just look how shaytan will do us

Please please please hold the line now,
I swear please hold the line now
Just long enough so we can find out
Find out how we work things out

Work things out

Now comes the time, time to mend fences
To remove the mask and stop pretending
Because now the whisper’s winning
And how could this be our ending

Ohhhh.

Can faith pull us through
Don’t know what I should do
I ask of you

Please please please hold the line now,
I swear please hold the line now
Just long enough so we can find out
Find out how we work things out

I know it seems so hard, it seems so hard
When others fall apart, the fall apart
They couldn’t make it though, they couldn’t make it through
But this I promise you, Allah rewards the Sabiroon

So, so, so

Please please please hold the line now,
I swear please hold the line now
Just long enough so we can find out
Find out how we work things out

Please please please hold the line now,
I swear please hold the line now
Just long enough so we can find out
Find out how we work things out

Work things out

LABAYK

Chorus
Labayk Allah, Huma Labayk.
It’s a journey for Allah that I wanna make.

Bound to the sound when the Hajjis go round,
In the place where we face they put their heads to the ground.
Bowin’ in submission with conviction of steel.
It’s a feeling of peace, I someday hope I can feel

When the month it comes around, its called the month Dhul-Hij
People come from every place on this planet to do it.
It’s the Hajj, is a journey to the house of Allah
Where over two million different people come from near and from far…

By car, and by boat and by plane and by the camel
Some brothers even do it by foot just with a sandal.
But when they arrive and then city just glows.
You’ll understand the reasoning why everyone goes

Seeking forgiveness from Allah, in every step that they take
Here I am for my creator, Yah they cry out labayk

Chorus

Yo! I’m looking forward to the trip ta Hajj!
Going’ to Mecca and Madina with the entourage”
Yo! I’m looking forward to the trip ta Haj!
Comin’ back like as a haji like Malik al Shabaz.

From Madinah to Musdelifa, sights that you never saw,
Best of all the trips ain’t nothing less that I will settle for
Dawn of lhram, where we all put on white,
Putting on the sheets so that we all look alike

Doing tawaf around the Qaba kissin’ the black stone if you can,
But you haven’t done nothing till you’ve done Zam-Zam
Gettin’ on that bus so you can get to Ararat,
Getting all those pebbles used to stone the Jamarat.

Pacing back and forth between the Saffa and the Marwah
Commemorating what was done for Ishmael by Hagar
Sacrifice a lamb then go ahead and shave your held
Joining in the feasting after all the prayers are said.

Now nothing beats this trip not even Taj Mahal
Cause there’s Africans, Indonesians from Egypt and all,
I’m looking forward to this trip I someday hope I can make
Here I am for my creator and when I cry out Labayk

Translation Of Takbeer-Ul-Eid

Allah is great, Allah is great, Allah is great, There is no god but Allah
Allah is great, Allah is great, and praise is due to Him.
Allah is great, Allah is great, Allah is great, There is no god but Allah

Allah is great, Allah is great, and praise is due to Him.
Allah is the Greatest, and an abundance of praise is due to Him,
And glory and praise be to him morning and evening.

There is no god but Allah, alone, He was true to His promise,
And He granted victory to His worshipper, and He supported His group,
And He conquered the parties (of evil) all by Himself.

There is no deity but Allah, and we worship no one but Him,
And we will sincerely follow the religion for Him,
Even against the wishes of the unbelievers.

May Allah pray upon our Muhammad, and upon his family,
And upon his companions, and upon his supporters,
And upon his wives, And upon his descendants,
And grant an abundance of peace on him.

RAIN SONG

Steps out side, into the scorching heat
The well is dry, the children cry
And the lands they claim defeat

Oh my father, is it evil that we’ve done
He smiles at the child with faith in his eyes
Inshallah the rains will come

This I know, his mercy must be won
Just open your heart, this is the start
Inshallah the rains will come

On him I swear, his will must be done
Like tears from your eyes, pearls from the sky
Inshallah the rains will come

Father gathers, the people for their eyes to see
That if they combine their hearts and their minds
They will turn the deserts green

Side by side, they stand in the burning heat
They pray to the one that brought them the sun
To make the heavens weep

This I know, his mercy must be won
Just open your heart, this is the start
Inshallah the rains will come

On him I swear, his will must be done
Like tears from your eyes, pearls from the sky
Inshallah the rains will come

Like tears from your eyes, pearls from the sky
Inshallah the rains will come

Will come. Shower your mercy and wash away the sun
Will come. Pour down your blessings until the drought is gone
Will come. Soak up our tears and let the rivers run
Will come. Please answer your servants, Allah almighty one

This I know, his mercy must be won
Just open your heart, this is the start
Thank God that the rains have come

On him I swear, his will has been done
He dried the tears from our eyes, pearls from sky
Thank God that the rains have come

BE AT THE TOP

How come every time I go and I flip on the news channel
I see these images of Muslims having crude manners
Angry men, holding guns and a few camels
Terrorist pumping fists with their rude banners

You get anxiety, from symbols of our piety
Cause they don’t show us Muslims who contribute to society
How come they don’t show us doing positive things
We get abused and harassed so many problems this brings

Did this to black in the 60’s, Japanese in the 40’s
Were the same category how their messing with our stories
Flashing our picture over negative words
People are begging to learn but you just making it worse

But now were gonna watch you, your biases that pop through
And go against your sponsors advertisers if we got to
Wake up, its our right to defend,
gotta fight with the pen if our plights gonna end.

Chorus
We gonna be at the top, Inshallah
We’re the cream of the crop, Inshallah
We’re gonna rock till we drop, Inshallah
Cause believers never stop, Mashallah

We are the people with the plan, Inshallah
We’re always doing what we can, Inshallah
Putting knowledge in the land, Inshalalh
With the power of the pen, Mashallah

Yes, Yes, Yes Ya’ll. You know it time to listen very close
Because my lyrics are gonna get raw
Cause what you see is what you saw
‘Aint nothing changed but the criminal perception of the law

Like who’s a criminal and whats a crime
I’m trying to define how the television washes your mind
Conspiracies against me and still
The majority of the people still believe whatever they see on TV

How can this be when obviously it’s the media
Feeding lies to the people can’t you see that bro
Uh, you need examples, for instance some cases
You don’t know religion and you don’t know about the races

You look, see black, think that I’m athletic
Then you look and see I’m Muslim and you think anti-Semitic
But check it, watch what they do to your mind kid
Its all connected you better not be blinded

Chorus

We all know the media aint doing us right
So everyday we write, that’s the way we fight
We all know the media aint doing us right
And if we all unite will make them see the light

It’s known that governments will stereotype
They profile us by day, lock us up in the night
It’s known that governments will stereotype
But we still invite them to the deen that right

They put the word on the street
That Muslims got beef, say we in the middle east
Plotting with the sheikhs
Thinking that they right when we know they not
Say we coming up with the next terrorist plot

And with these petty lies, now we’re not concerned
That’s about the time we bring on that mic burn
And smash it, against all of they tactics
They let us have it, but you know we coming back kid

We got students copin’ deen plus a law degree
To run these snakes straight out judiciaries
Future leaders burning up the quills
Torching all the lies so the people know the real

We aint the type of rhymers to saying bust the steal
We saying stop the lies and show them whats real
We aint the type of rhymers stay shoot to kill
We saying stop the blood, and let the ink spill

Zamilooni

He stepped inside his home, and he overwhelmed with fear
An angel came with words from God, things were still unclear
Saying read – read, but he couldn’t read, then amazing words he heard
A trembling deep inside his heart, confused by what had occurred

There was only one who could comfort him
And help him see the light
To ease his fears, to reassure
It was khadijah, his wife

Chorus
He said Zamilooni, Zamilooni, Dathirooni, Dathirooni, (Envelop me, Embrace me)
A mighty task has come before me
I need you here with me
By my side

She was a woman of nobility, successful in all her trade
Many wealthy men had asked for her, she had turned them all away
But when she saw Muhammad, a shining moon, may peace be on his soul
He was a light for her – so right for her – her life will now be whole

But she had never seen him so distressed, as he was there that day
She would comfort him, and hold him tight, and chase his doubts away

Chorus

Bridge
We look for stories of love, in places dark and cold
When we have a guiding light, for the whole world to behold
But were so selfish in our ways, and to the ones we hold so close
Our own pleasure and happiness is what we value most

But she sacrificed all her wealth and everything she had
And he honored her, and gave her faith,
when the times were bad, when times were bad…

Now years have passed, times had changed, since khadijah breathed her last.
Message of the one true God, was spreading far and vast
But then he came across a neaklace, that khajidah once had worn
His eyes began to swell with tears, his heart again began to mourn

Cause she was there for him, when times were rough, and his enimies were cruel
Was the first believer, so keen and eager, to comfort al-Rasool

Chorus

Mawlaya salli wa sallim da’iman abada
‘Ala habibika khayril khalqi kullihimi
(O my Leader, send your salutations and blessings forever
Upon Your Beloved, the best of the whole of creation)

M-U-S-L-I-M

One billion strong, all year long,
Prayers to Allah even in Hong Kong
Can never be wrong if we read the Qur’an
Cause it’s never been changed since day one.
Others may brag, say that we lag,
But they don’t know all the power we had
The power we had, the power we have
So Muslimoon don’t you ever be sad
Take many looks, go read their books,
You’ll see all the facts that your friends overlook,
So always be proud, you can say it out loud
I am proud to be down with the Muslim crowd!

M-U-S-L-I-M
I’m so blessed to be with them…
M-U-S-L-I-M
I’m so blessed to be with them…

They look at me strangely
Like I emit some type of energy
That draws Kafirs – disbelievers towards me.
Thinking to themselves what makes him different from me.
Is it the hair, the clothes or maybe the food he eats,
What could it be, that make thug cats, stand at attention,
His demeanor’s peaceful but on his face it’s clearly written that,
This aint the sorta brother caught up in this and that
Running streets carrying heat yo he aint into that.
This brother must live by some type of criteria,
To make it to the average cat quite superior
So maybe one of these days I get near enough
Play like Nancy Drew on this mystery and clear it up.
So listen up if you think this is strange,
Cause these the type of thoughts that use to run through a new Shahada’s brains
and I bear witness to the one with 99 names, InshAllah I will always remain.

M-U-S-L-I-M
I’m so blessed to be with them…
M-U-S-L-I-M
I’m so blessed to be with them…

Don’t know about you, I know about me,
I’m proud because I’m rolling Islamically
Everywhere I see, even on TV,
People talking trash about the way I be.
But what they all hate, is if we get great
Cause we’re the only ones with our heads on straight
Don’t ever frown, or your head looking down,
If you read the Qur’an you’re the best in the town.
Y’all have doubt say- we have no clout
But-within-a-few years see how we’ve come about.
Were back on the scene, The number-one deen,
I’m proud to be down with the Muslimeen!

Chorus
