Nation of the Desert

LISTEN:

Our Lord is Allah * There is no other lord for the people;

Nation of the desert, O eternal people * Who else besides you removed the chains of deception from humanity?

Which caller before you from all who exist * Called out ‘Khosrau and Caesar are no more’?

Who besides you in the present or past * Raised a dawn of guidance by the Qur’an?

Heard by all in the mighty Universe * There is no lord besides Allah for the people;

And it is as if you did not shine in the world * With the guidance of faith and the right path;

And in the darkness of modern times, you forgot * The value of the desert in a life of relaxation;

Every nation got up and built a strong building * And I see your building divided;

In the past, you were a nation * I grieve at how you have now become nations;

Whoever is heedless of his purpose * Is most deserving of totally fading away;

Whoever imitates the lifestyle of the strangers * Will never see nationalism;

Think about your era when * You were an example for humanity, and compete;

Fill the desert with firm will * And bring the soul of ‘Umar back to it…

[Sung by Ahmad Bukhatir]

  1. Jazakallah khair for linking me bro.

  2. I knew it was you :)

  3. As many of you well know, Imam Jamil Al-Amin (hafidhuallah) is a very famous civil/humans right advocate who converted to Islam. He is currently being held on false charges. This is a recent plea from Imam Jamil’s son:

    My father, Imam Jamil Al-Amin aka H. Rap Brown, was under 23 hour lockdown in the super max prison in Colorado until recently when he was placed in the hole. He was stripped searched, his Quran and all other personal belongings were seized and he has been placed in a cell with no bed, no control over the lights and no shower. We are appealing to you to please write, fax or call the WARDEN of the prison, Ron Wiley, inquiring about my father,s current situation and why he has been placed even further underground, so to speak. Please help out, it would be greatly appreciated. Contact info for the warden is below, thank you.

    Sincerely, Kairi Al-Amin

    Call the ADX Florence Supermax security prison at (719)784-9464. Ask for Warden Ron Wiley. You will need to call that number preferably during their business hours to speak to the Warden’s secretary directly and complain about whats going on with Imam Jamil. You will need Imam Jamil’s inmate number which is 99974-555.

    They will try to route you to the Imam’s counselor Richard Madison, but respectfully ask to speak to the warden Ron Wiley. Please–if you are a person who cannot speak courteously–then DO NOT call, as you will only anger them and they will take their anger out on Imam Jamil. SO PLEASE CONTAIN YOURSELVES, AND BE EXTRA COURTEOUS, no matter how much your heart is full of anger.
