Inner And Ouer Me Cover 2

A beautiful night

A dream

That seemed so real

A cock’s crow

Depriving me of fantasies

 

An inspiration

Travelling

Beyond the dream world

The wonderful sight

Still enthralls me

 

Beyond flowing garments

The beautiful Ummah

Strikes me more

The humility

Sways me off my feet

 

Selfless people

Whose greetings

Convey a strong prayer

Lofty ideologies and magnificent virtues

Provoke my anxiety

 

An unknown force

A strange voice

Beckons me on

To comb the narrow roads

To find my dream

 

They ask me

About my sleepless nights

They know all

About my adventures

But I am scared

 

I can’t fail

To embark

On this treasure hunt

But my voice travels far

Across borders

 

My voice

Reaches their souls

They know the why

They understand my sweat

But they turn their backs

 

Brothers and sisters

Folding their arms

Cold stares at me

I can’t help but tremble

Will I find my dream?

And upon Allah let the believers rely.

The Qur’an, Surah Al-Maa’idah (Chapter of the table spread) 5:11
