Allah KnowsAllah Knows Words and melody by Zain Bhikha. Performed by Zain Bhikha & Dawud Wharnsby When you feel all alone in this world And theres nobody to count your tears Just remember, no matter where you are Allah knows Allah knows When you carrying a monster load And you wonder how far you can go With every step on that road that you take Allah knows Allah knows CHORUS No matter what, inside or out Theres one thing of which theres no doubt Allah knows Allah knows And whatever lies in the heavens and the earth Every star in this whole universe Allah knows Allah knows When you find that special someone Feel your whole life has barely begun You can walk on the moon, shout it to everyone Allah knows Allah knows When you gaze with love in your eyes Catch a glimpse of paradise And you see your child take the first breath of life Allah knows Allah knows CHORUS When you lose someone close to your heart See your whole world fall apart And you try to go on but it seems so hard Allah knows Allah knows You see we all have a path to choose Through the valleys and hills we go
With the ups and the downs, never fret never frown Allah knows Allah knows CHORUS (x2) BRIDGE: Every grain of sand, In every desert land, He knows. Every shade of palm, Every closed hand, He knows. Every sparkling tear, On every eyelash, He knows. Every thought I have, And every word I share, He knows. Allah knows.
Flowers are RedFlowers are Red Words and melody by Harry Chapin. Performed by Dawud Wharnsby, Muhammed Bhikha, Rashid Bhikha A little boy went first day at school He got some crayons and he started to draw He put colors all over the paper For colors was what he saw The teacher said, "What you doin' young man?" "I'm paintin' flowers see" "Well this is not the time for art young man And anyway flowers are green and red There's a time for everything young man a way it should be done You've got to show concern for everyone else For you're not the only one" And she said... "Flowers are red Green leaves are green There's no need to see flowers any other way Than they way they always have been seen " But the little boy said... "There are so many colors in the rainbow So many colors in the morning sun So many colors in the flower and I see every one" Well the teacher said "You're sassy There's a way that things should be And you'll paint flowers the way they are So repeat after me..." she said... "Flowers are red Green leaves are green There's no need to see flowers any other way Than they way they always have been seen " But the little boy said again... "There are so many colors in the rainbow So many colors in the morning sun So many colors in the flower and I see every one" Well the teacher put him in a corner She said "It's for your own good And you won't come out 'til you get it right responding like you should" Well finally he got lonely Frightened thoughts filled his head And he went up to that teacher And this is what he said "Flowers are red, green leaves are green There's no need to see flowers any other way Than the way they always have been seen"
Well time went by like it always does he moved to another town And the little boy went to another school And this is what he found The teacher there was smilin' She said..."Painting should be fun And there are so many colors in a flower So let's paint every one" that little boy painted flowers In neat rows of green and red And when the teacher asked him "why" This is what he said.. "Flowers are red, green leaves are green There's no need to see flowers any other way Than the way they always have been seen." But there must still be a way to have our children say, There are so many colors in the rainbow So many colors in the morning sun So many colors in the flower and I see every one There are so many colors in the rainbow So many colors in the morning sun So many colors in the flower and I see every one
My Mom is Amazing Words and melody by Zain Bhikha Performed by Naadira Alli She wakes up early in the morning with a smile And she holds my head up high Dont you ever let anybody put you down Cos you are my little angel Then she makes something warm for me to drink Cos its cold out there, she thinks Then she walks me to school, Yes I aint no fool I just think my Mom is amazing BRIDGE/CHORUS She makes me feel Like I can do anything and when shes with me theres no where else, Id rather be After School, shes waiting by the gate Im so happy that I just cant wait To get home to tell her how my day went And eat the yummy food, only my Mom makes Then I wind her up cos I dont wanna bath And we run around the house with a laugh No matter what I say, she gets her way I think my Mom is amazing BRIDGE/CHORUS In the evening, she tucks me into bed And I wrap my arms around her head Then she tells me a tale of a girl far away Who one day became a princess Im so happy, I dont want her to leave So she lies in bed with me As I close my eyes, how lucky am I To have a Mom thats so amazing BRIDGE/CHORUS Then I wake up in the morning, shes not there And I realize she never was
And Im still here in this lonely orphanage With so many just like me And as my dreams begin to fade I try hard to look forward to my day But theres a pain in my heart thats a craving How I wish I had a Mom thats amazing Would be amazing
Pizza In His Pocket Words and melody by Jawaad Abdul Rahman Performed by Rashid Bhikhai, Naadira Alli Did you ever hear about the boy Who ate and ate and ate! He ate early in the morning And he ate when it was late. But he didnt thank Allah for all the yummy food he had And he ate so much it made him sick! Which really made him sad. He ate dates in Damascus, which he thought were very nice. And hot samoosas in Sumatra, seasoned with a special spice. He had tacos in Tijuana with some sauce he got from Spain And a bowl of fresh bakalava that he bartered in Bahrain. He said gyros made in Cairo are a taste that cant be beat, And the lemonade in Yemen made a very special treat. But the turkey made in Turkey Could still use a pinch of salt. If you ever visit Malta, you should Have a chocolate malt! He had pizza in his pocket, he had ketchup on his shirt, And he bought an ice-cream sundae, so he wouldnt miss dessert. He had pizza in his pocket, he had ketchup on his shirt, And he bought an ice-cream sundae, so he wouldnt miss dessert. On a bay in the Bahamas, He ate bon-bons in a bunch. And then he rushed back Home so he could make it Just in time for lunch! Then one day he saw a little girl, who held her tummy tight, And he walked over and asked her if everything was alright. She said she was so hungry and had been hungry for so long, Then he realized the way he ate was very very wrong. He looked down at his own tummy and he started feeling painPain from eating too much food, but he knew not to complain.
So he brought the girl some food, shared it with her family, Then they thanked Allah for what they had, and then he let them be. So lets try to learn a lesson and lets try to do whats right. Eat the food your parents give you without a fuss or fight. Always be thankful to Allah for all your yummy food, Share what you have with others, because not sharing is rude. Being thankful is whats really great. Eat the veggies on your plate. And dont be like the boy who always ate and ate and ate! He had pizza in his pocket, he had ketchup on his shirt, And he bought an ice-cream sundae, so he wouldnt miss dessert. He had pizza in his pocket, he had ketchup on his shirt, And he bought an ice-cream sundae, so he wouldnt miss dessert. Being thankful is whats really great. Eat the veggies on your plate. And dont be like the boy who always ate and ate and ate!
Lay Down Your Head Words and melody by Sumayyah Jameson, 2005. Performed by Zain Bhikha Chorus Lay down your head And go to sleep May you dream Of gardens sweet Close your eyes And dream away Of Allahs gifts To you this day The sun that rose upon your head As you lay within your bed Green grass, blue skies and waters deep Of this and more, dream in your sleep. Chorus The earth and all that it contains With Allahs blessing, He sustains Remember this, my dear, in sleep That Allahs pleasure we must seek. Chorus Allah created all you see The mountains, birds and humming bees To Him we will return one day So turn to Him again and pray. Chorus And as you drift off to sleep In my heart your love Ill keep You are so special my dear. Cause Allah brings our hearts so near. Chorus

He said I got some issues with my folks I cant resolve No need to stress you out Bro, or get you involved So I put it to him, have you started smoking weed And the answer that he gave me really made be grieve He said yeah once in a while when I need to mellow out But I'll be alright, I'm not the one to worry about Yo we got to get you help before you ruin yourself You got greatness ahead, you aint like everyone else He said I promise I'll be fine and he gave me his hand So I trusted him and hoped that he would soon understand Couple months went by and he be worse and worse Like he was thrown in a curse, I hoped that he would reverse then one day, he asked me for a couple a bucks He said he needs to pay a friend and right now he's stuck, I said I know you smoking crack now, confirmed that for a fact now I gotta get you help now, don't even try to back down Gave him the money, he promised Monday he would meet me Friday got the call that would defeat me completely Fayaz had died of a drug over dose It was the saddest day ever - aint nothing comes close Man I hate those drugs, hate em with all of my soul chokes the young and the old, till their bodies is cold So I don't care if you're a player or a wanna-be thug Don't ever, ever come close to drugs Chorus:
It's happening more and more each day These drugs making my friends crazy I'm laying it down... Dont bring it around... Cos I aint nothing but Drug Free Verse 2: Months later, was still mourning his death Was angry and sad that he fell in this mess A teacher who noticed how miserable my soul was, Came Over He said I see your carrying a boulder I know that I'm older, but let me tell you something that I never ever told ya - Put my arms around his shoulder My daughter, she was the pride of my heart As a father, we were never far apart Was a popular girl, always on top of the world Never scared to try something new and give it a whirl But she had low self-esteem, If you know what I mean And it only takes a moment, Yo, to devastate a dream She started hanging with this girl from school Her Grades went down and she started breaking rules And it festered and festered - we didn't want to face it Til one day, she came home totally wasted Then friend told us she was close to being arrested We put our foot down and we forced her to get tested She tested positive for drugs, but there was something else The doctor asked to do more tests to check up on her health And then came the news, that would totally defeat me, Her use of all the needles, she had gotten HIV I was livid, that moment and that feeling I will always live with it, Man It's still vivid She died 5 years ago, nothing I could help My Lord has helped me with this pain that I felt With tears in me eyes, Yo I gave him a hug, May God give you strength to keep away from drugs ..keep away from drugs, ..keep away from drugs Chorus: It's happening more and more each day These drugs making my friends crazy I'm laying it down... Dont bring it around... Cos I aint nothing but Drug Free

Deen-ul-Islam Words and melody by Zain Bhikha & Cheb Ali Masrawi Performed by Zain Bhikha If you ask me, why do I stand here, So unafraid of everything around me. Proudly I would say, I am a Muslim. If you ask her, why does she dress that way, All covered up in a world that gives it all away. Proudly she would say, I am a Muslim. Chorus: Deenil Islam deeni Wala ardab gheiru deeni Muhammad elli hadeeni Nourel iman If you ask me, surely this cannot be, You give your wealth so free, and you say your life is charity. It aint hard to see, I am a Muslim. If you ask him, why does it hurt so, When he sees injustice, even though its folks he doesnt know, With tears in his eyes he says, I am a Muslim. Chorus If you ask her, why doesnt she cry, Theres no one by her side, shes the only one thats left behind. Patiently she sighs, I am a Muslim. If you ask him, why does he still pray, Five times a day when so many others have strayed. Smiling he would say, I am a Muslim. Chorus If you ask me, why do I love you No matter where you are, we are the greatest Ummah With the beating of our hearts, we are Muslim. La-illah-ha-illalah Muhammad-ur-rasullulah There is only one God La-illah-ha-illalah Muhammad-al-Mustapha Muhammad is the messenger

Come on young Muslims, gotta rise up. Come on young Muslims. Together we must stand in the Masjid to pray, Pray for a better day, a better way To make this world a better place. Cause lets face it, its out of control. We need to grab hold of each other unite as one Ummah.
