Patience

Is it true?**
Is it true that the grass grows again after rain?
Is it true that the flowers will rise up again in the Spring?
Is it true that birds will migrate home again?
Is it true that the salmon swim back up their streams?
It is true. This is true. These are all miracles.

But is it true that one day we'll leave Guantanamo Bay?
Is it true that one day we'll go back to our homes?
I sail in my dreams. I am dreaming of home.
To be with my children, each one part of me;
To be with my wife and the ones that I love;
To be with my parents, my world's tenderest hearts.

I dream to be home, to be free from this cage.
But do you hear me, oh Judge, do you hear me at all?
We are innocent, here, we've committed no crime.
Set me free, set us free, if anywhere still
Justice and compassion remain in this world!

** Written by Usama Abu Kadir
Shortly after 11 September, Usama travelled to Pakistan to perform charity work in Afghanistan with the Islamic missionary group Tablighi Jamat. The US claims Tablighi was providing fighters for jihad in Afghanistan and arrested Mr Kadir near Jalalabad in November 2001. In his native Jordan, he was known as a dedicated family man who worked as a truck driver. In Guantanamo, he is known as prisoner number 651. In November 2007 Usama was released, for more information visit click here.

He is the One
No matter what trial or tribulation you might be going through
Have a little bit of Patience and you know you might see it through
Just like the colours of the rainbow it can brighten up your day
Just keep your faith in Him and give Him thanks and praise

He is the maintainer He is the preserver
He is The One who provides us with shelter
He is the provider He is the protector
He is the one who protects us from hunger

Think twice before you move you know He’s always watching you
The all seeing all hearing He knows all that we do
On no soul does he place a burden greater than it can bear
So just keep your Faith in Him and give Him thanks and praise

He is the maintainer He is the preserver
He is The One who provides us with shelter
He is the provider He is the protector
He is the one who protects us from hunger

Hunger starvation disease and poverty has been taking the world by storm
Can mankind not see
Do men imagine that they will be left at ease
Just because they say we believe

He is the maintainer He is the preserver
He is The One who provides us with shelter
He is the provider He is the protector
He is the one who protects us from hunger

As for those who believe and do righteous deeds
They are the companions of the garden yes indeed
So we’ll keep striving throughout our lives
For that great reward that has been promised paradise

He is the maintainer He is the preserver
He is The One who provides us with shelter
He is the provider He is the protector
He is the one who protects us from hunger
There is none Greater
He created the universe to Him belong the heavens and the earth
To Him belong the heavens and the earth
The ever living He is the first
He”s the owner of mercy

He sent His messengers
To warn His creatures
Of the grave danger
In worshiping other than Allah

There is none greater than The Creator
AllahuAkbar AllahuAkbar
There is none greater than The Creator
AllahuAkbar AllahuAkbar

The prohets say submit to Him alone
Whether you’re rich poor young or old
The gift of life is worth much more than gold
He”s the owner of mercy

He’s raised upon His Throne
The Master of the unseen and of the unknown
And on the day when the trumpet blows
Mankind will come to know

There is none greater than The Creator
AllahuAkbar AllahuAkbar
There is none greater than The Creator
AllahuAkbar AllahuAkbar
Children of war
There’s not a mother in this world who would watch her child,
Cry in the street stand and watch her weep
There’s not a mother in this world who wouldn’t give
Up her own life for the life of her child
There’s not a mother in this world who wouldn’t be
Happy to have a home for her family
Where are your homes where are your families
What will you eat today where will you sleep

Oh people of the world
Can we spare a little justice can we spare a little peace
For the children of war
Oh people of the world
Can we spare a little love can we spare a little prayer
For the children of war

Is there a father in this world who would not
Try to provide for his children and his wife
Is there a father in this world who would want to be
Locked up in a cell away from his family
Is there a father in this world who would not defend
Justice and rights till the very end
Where are your jobs where is security
Where is freedom when will you all be free

Oh people of the world
Can we spare a little justice can we spare a little peace
For the children of war
Oh people of the world
Can we spare a little love can we spare a little prayer
For the children of war

There’s not a child in this world who should have to grow up
Living in fear drowning in despair
No child in this world should be deprived of an education
And every child in this world would want to play
In a safe community having fun running free
We pray for you children Lord ease their pain
And give them strength to go on day by day

Oh people of the world
Can we spare a little justice can we spare a little peace
For the children of war
Oh people of the world
Can we spare a little love can we spare a little prayer
For the children of war
Special
O little girl to me you are so special
And you know there’s nothing I won’t give just to see you smile
And you know there’s nothing I won’t give to look into your eyes

You are so beautiful you are so fine
And they’ll always be a special place for you in my heart

O little girl to me you are so special
And you know there’s nothing I won’t give just to see you happy
And you know there’s nothing I won’t give just to see you smile

You are so beautiful one of a kind
And they’ll always be a special place for you in my heart

O little girl to me you are so special
And you know there’s nothing I won’t give just to see you smile
And you know there’s nothing I won’t give to look into your eyes

A baby girl can was born into this world
Flat lined just under four minutes
And she lives with a handicap
Never lets it hold her back
Cause she’s a survivor

Lord have mercy on her little soul
Guide her through life as she grows up

She is so beautiful love at first sight
I’m so proud to be the father of this precious child

She is so wonderful she brings joy to my world
Oh Lord I thank You for giving me this little precious girl

O little girl to me you are so special
And you know there’s nothing I won’t give just to see you smile
And you know there’s nothing I won’t give to look into your eyes

O little girl to me you are so special
And you know there’s nothing I won’t give just to see you happy
And you know there’s nothing I won’t give just to see you smile

And they’ll always be a special place for you in my heart
Change our hearts
Actions are judged by their intentions
And every man shall be judged accordingly
And whatever you keep inside your heart
It can not be hidden from Him

Earn your living in a lawful way be mindful of what you say
Be sincere when you pray today could be your last day
Bear each other no malice greed and faith can’t co-exist in the same heart

Oh Lord only You can change our hearts
We call upon You to do so
So that we may submit to You
Oh Lord only You can change our hearts

The world we live in today can be so cold
And a man’s heart can be as hard as stone
What will it take for us to make love conquer hate
When will we learn from our mistakes

Earn your living in a lawful way be mindful of what you say
Be sincere when you pray today could be your last day
Bear each other no malice greed and faith can’t co-exist in the same heart

Oh Lord only you can change our hearts
We call upon You to do so
So that we may submit to You
Oh Lord only You can change our hearts

Envy jealousy falsehood hypocrisy greed and dishonesty
Remove them Lord remove them from our hearts

Self control gentleness modesty humbleness sincerity truthfulness
Place them in our hearts

Loyalty faithfulness generosity and kindness Trust and honesty
Place them in our hearts

Oh Lord only You can change our hearts
We call upon You to do so
So that we may submit to You
Oh Lord only You can change our hearts

Oh Lord
To You I pray bow down prostrate
You are the only one worthy of praise
I stand before You with an attentive heart
Erase my sins from the present and past

To You I pray bow down prostrate
You are the only one worthy of praise
I stand before You with an attentive heart
Erase my sins from the present and past

Lord to You I pray You are the only one worthy of praise

O my Lord I surrender to You
I entrust all of my affairs to You
I depend on You for  Your blessings too
Both with hope and fear of You

There is no fleeing fleeing from You
There is no place of protection and safety but with You
I testify till the very day that I die
There is none to be worshipped but You the Most High

Lord to You I pray You are the only one worthy of praise

Oh Lord help me to remember You To thank You and to Worship You
I uphold my covenant as much as I can
Let me die in a state of Islam
My life my death is all for You
You are the only one Worthy of praise

To You I pray bow down prostrate
You are the only one worthy of praise
I stand before You with an attentive heart
Erase my sins from the present and past

To You I pray bow down prostrate
You are the only one worthy of praise
I stand before You with an attentive heart
Erase my sins from the present and past
