As Salamu Alaykum,

Does anyone know where I can buy the song "Al Hamdulillah"? The one that goes "Al Hamdulillah I'm a rock..."

Jezakallah Khair wa Salam,

-Umar.

Lyrics:

I am just a rock
and everyday I sit and watch the sky.
I sleep here in the sun and rain
and do not question why.
I don’t want to be a bird
’cause us rocks were never meant to fly.
But you can sit and rest on me
When you pass by.

Alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah, I’m a rock
And that is all Allah asks of me.
Alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah, I’m a Muslim
And there’s nothing else I’d rather be.

I am just a tree
And this is the only life I’ll ever know.
I bow my boughs in worship
Whenever I feel the wind blow.
And my purpose in life
Is to grow when Allah says grow
And be a home for the birds and shade
For folks below.

Alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah, I’m a tree
And that is all Allah asks of me.
Alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah, I’m a Muslim
And there’s nothing else I’d rather be.

I am just a person
And my life is full of opportunity.
I can travel through the world
Over land and over sea.
But will I choose the path of Truth
Or a path to misguide me?
Sometimes I wish I had a simple life
Just like a rock or a tree.

But alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah, I’m a person,
and Allah has given me a choice that’s free.
So, alhamdulillah, I choose to be a Muslim
And there’s nothing else I’d rather be.

[Lyrics] We've Scanned the Sky - by Dawud Wharnsby Ali


Well, we’ve scanned the sky and we’ve sighted the moon
And we welcome the month of Ramadan
When we’ll fast together for Allah, to help and strengthen our iman

Oh it was so very long ago
In the holy month of Ramadan
Allah sent his message to the world
The holy book of Quran
A light to shine for all mankind
A guide to teach us right from wrong
First revealed on the night of power
With peace until the rising of the dawn.

So we’ve scanned the sky and we’ve sighted the moon
And we welcome the month of Ramadan
When we’ll fast together for Allah, to help and strengthen our iman

As the sun lay sleeping, beneath the blanket of the night
We rise early to make suhur, before the white thread of light
We’re patient and kind, remembering Allah all throughout our day
And when the sun has gone and we’ve made iftar,
We gather together and pray.

’cause we’ve scanned the sky and we’ve sighted the moon
And we welcome the month of Ramadan
When we’ll fast together for Allah, to help and strengthen our iman

Well, we’ve scanned the sky and we’ve sighted the moon
And we welcome the month of Ramadan
When we’ll fast together for Allah, to help and strengthen our iman

So many of our brothers and sisters, all across the land
They have no food to eat at all, and they need a helping hand
When we fast from morning ’til the night, to fulfill Allah’s command
We feel the hunger and thirst they feel, and it helps us to understand

For, all too fast, the moon goes past, our month of blessings now has gone
But we’ll keep its spirit throughout the year, Everyday should be like Ramadan

So we’ve scanned the sky and we’ve sighted the moon
And we say “Farewell” to Ramadan
When we fast together for Allah, to help and strengthen our iman


Yes, we’ve scanned the sky and we’ve sighted the moon
And we say “Farewell” to Ramadan
When we fast together for Allah, to help and strengthen our iman.

I know that he uses musical instruments in his songs......but not in nasheeds some contain daff and some are echoed, and some are just plain voice. I only listen to his nasheeds.

Assalamualaikum every one...

sister giney.......i dont think so if it's included in any album of his. I listened to it as it was in the end of his lecture named "forging our islamic Identities".

Here are the lyrics.....
The Truth That Lies
Words: D.Wharnsby / Melody: D.Wharnsby & O.Simon
©2005 Enter Into Peace (SOCAN)

You smile in the two way mirror of my eyes.
I put on my faith like I wear a disguise.
You can’t see my soul, see the life that I live.
But I show you the mask of the best I can give.
I’ve hid here, afraid, like a child behind,
the truth of the thoughts that clutter my mind.
What if you knew, about all that I do?
The things that I think... the “me” that is true?

Would you call me a hypocrite? Call me a liar?
Would you curse out my name?
Would you damn me to fire?
Would you know what to say?
Would you just walk away, afraid the “me” I’ve tried to hide,
would too closely resemble the truth of you that lies inside?

I’ve been looking for answers since becoming adult,
not looking for dogma to live like a cult.
Been looking to live, been living to find,
freedom from cages that limit my mind.

Would you call me a hypocrite? Call me a liar?
Would you curse out my name?
Would you damn me to fire?
Would you know what to say?
Would you just walk away, afraid the “me” I’ve tried to hide,
would too closely resemble the truth of you that lies inside?

I’ve been running and hiking and dreaming of flying,
but falling and stumbling never shadowed my trying.
So now here I am before God and you,
showing my face and my true self to you.
I’m not sacred of God, I trust God understands,
but I‘m wandering if you will still offer your hands.

Will I scare you? Upset you? Frustrate you? Irrate you?
Challenge your lifestyle or weaken your trust?
Or will you see my effort? My passion? Sincerity?
Will you see just a little of yourself in me?
Will you take off your mask so we can be free?

Would you call me a hypocrite? Call me a liar?
Would you curse out my name?
Would you damn me to fire?
Would you know what to say?
Would you just walk away, afraid the “me” I’ve tried to hide,
would too closely resemble the truth of you that lies inside?
