The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree..

I remember first listening to Yusuf Islam and falling in love with so many of his simple songs/nasheeds (whatever you wanna call them)..

Yoriyos (Muhammad Islam) is the son of Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens). His first album, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, was released earlier this year. 

The Lyrics to one of the songs in the album, “La Ilaha Illa Allah”:

Many dreams we share my brothers
Many tears we dare not share
The sand of our lives goes quickly blowing
To the heavens with our prayers
From the sea of time we travel
Each and every one who lives
May my journey end in grievin’
The shores in which my brothers rest
La ilaha illa Allah
Every day and every night
La ilaha illa Allah
To paradise these words take flight

More than sea can ease and riches
More than wanting is to give
We’re each a child to each other
So treat and teach your children well
From the mountains soon to crumble
From the skies so full of pain
The oceans to the stars they wonder
Why we find it hard to say
La ilaha illa Allah
Every day and every night
La ilaha illa Allah
To paradise these words take flight

La ilaha illa Allah
Every day and every night
To paradise these words take flight

*Note: if you youtube or google it, I believe it does have music, hence, I only posted the lyrics, which I thought were beautiful*

    thank you for your comment Regine

  3. That tree is sooo historical. No…Christopher Columbus didn’t hug it, nor did George Washington climbed it…but its a sign that theres a god, and thats Allah (SWT). Its giving proof that the Quran is THE book. And its everybit true!
    Sabuhan Allah! Allahuakbar!
