O Palestine

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

O Palestine, your land is so pure
Your riddance of the Infamous Zionists*is its cure
Your lands are green and blessed
Even your cursed enemies confessed

And thus they attack your Olive trees
They bulldoze your houses and your valuables they seize
They fill your pure air with debris and kill as they please
As a way to feed their hearts' disease

All the plants will one day testify--its in their fate
With the exception of one, the one they cultivate
AlGharqd, the tree of treachery will have nothing to say
It will be silent and shut itself like we do today

We live in a time of hope and despair
Where no human would give an earthly care
For those children orphaned or dead or those mothers widowed
Or those men incarcerated, and they wonder why they explode

The land--is now lost
Our dignity has been bought at a cheap cost
By money, it was sold
And true where the words that the Prophet* told

"The Fitnah of Bani Israel was women and yours is Money"
The words of the Mustafa* are like ailments to honey
But this shifa' is and never was given by force
For the Nabi* was told to only warn and endorse

But to those who believe in Him, Allah makes a way out
For those who pray, read His Book and serve Him with no doubt
A day will come when one can hold the banner high and say
"All praise is due to Allah" as we thank Him for this glorious day

But hey...

Only if we unite in goodwill, the force of evil will slowly perish
If Allah gave us the power, and we loved Him and cherish
Our Muslim brothers and sisters no matter who they are
And where they come from--near or far

The day still seems far
As far as the North Star
But your flowers will once more bloom and the Sun will shine
On your land that is divine
O Palestine...


* May the Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him
* Zionists does not equal Jews
