Courtesy: Islam Great ReligionWe were once lost in the gloom of ignorancePlunged deep in the heart of unawarenessWorshipping dumb idols made of stone“Who would resurrect us, flesh and bone?”We would shed blood for petty reasonsRemaining in war throughout the seasonsWe would bury baby girls, no mercy did we feelNothing seemed cruel to those hearts of steelAnd just when it seemed that we were doomedIn front of our eyes our destruction loomedAllah, the Merciful and the AlmightySent us Muhammad.. .a Guidance, a MercyHe brought us out of darkness into lightHe guided us, he showed us wrong from rightAs we submitted to Allah, Iman filled our heartsThat’s where the great story of our Triumph startsUnder his leadership we conquered the worldWith all of its treasures.. .at our feet unfurledWith Imaan in our hearts so strong so brightNo one could defeat us, such was our mightThe strongest authority one had ever heardOur only mission.. .to spread Allah’s WordWe were good Muslims.. .with patience and pietyWe were One Ummah.. .all brothers with sincerityBut now those blessed days are all but gone.Now things have been turned upside downWe abandoiiMuslims and Islam are looked down upon.Where is our Glory?
