The Sound of Bliss
Allahhu Akbar Allahhu Akbar
And I just have to open my eyes
Slowly I stretch myself, up I rise
I hear it more clearly now
I smile and answer my vow.
Asyhaduanla Ila ha Illallah.
Asyhaduanna Muhammadan Rasulullah.
In my soul the vow echo
Resoundingly clear each and every time,
In full blast, in perfect crescendo
Beautiful in its divine rhyme.
The desire grips my heart in less than
In a hurry, I take my ablution.
The desire to succeed in this life
And in the next when we revive
From death through resurrection,
Success is my one and only mission.
Allahhu Akbar Allahu Akbar
La Ilaha Illallah,
In the bottomless pit of my heart
My love course through my blood
The heat warms my soul,
And I am whole.
The devoted slave is my role,
To the ground I bent my head low,
It makes me so whole,
It’s really to Him I bent my head low,
And it makes me, oh, so whole.
