Awaken..

by Maher Zain...this guy is Amazing!, can't stop listening to his songs over and over again.  The Chosen One, Baraka Allah Lakuma, For The Rest of My Life, Hold My Hand, Open Your Eyes, Insya Allah , all these great songs from his Album, Thank You Allah.  Such Beautiful & meaningful lyrics...



We were given so many prizes
We changed the desert into oasis
We built buildings of different lengths and sizes
And we felt so very satisfied
We bought and bought
We couldn't stop buying
We gave charity to the poor 'cause
We couldn't stand their crying
We thought we paid our dues
But in fact
To ourselves we're just lying

Oh...I'm walking with my head lowered in shame from my place
I'm walking with my head lowered from my race
Yes it's easy to blame everything on the west
When in fact all focus should be on ourselves

We were told what to buy and we'd bought
We went to London, Paris and Costa Del Sol
We made show we were seen in the most exclusive shops
Yes we felt so very satisfied

We felt our money gave us infinite power

We forgot to teach our children about history and honor
We didn't have any time to lose
When we were.. (were)
So busy feeling so satisfied

I'm walking with my head lowered in shame from my place
I'm walking with my head lowered from my race
Yes it's easy to blame everything on the west
When in fact all focus should be on ourselves

We became the visuals without a soul
despite the heat
Our homes felt so empty and cold
To fill the emptiness
We bought and bought
Maybe all the fancy cars
And bling will make us feel satisfied

My dear brother and sister
It's time to change inside
Open your eyes
Don't throw away what's right aside
Before the day comes
When there's nowhere to run and hide
Now ask yourself 'cause Allah's watching you

Is He satisfied?
Is Allah satisfied?
Is Allah satisfied?
Is Allah satisfied?

Oh..I'm walking with my head lowered in shame from my place
I'm walking with my head lowered from my race
Yes it's easy to blame everything on the west
When in fact all focus should be on ourselves

I like the way he pronounced 'Open'...your eyes



p.s: Whenever I turned on Maher Zain's song in the car Suzana started teasing me with her 'kurang asam' words "P, you know what?! Your music interest contradicts with your style and started laughing..ROFL *You're so evil fren!!! Like I care..Maher Zain you're still No.1..muaahhh* Hmm..maybe the aging factor;-)

Most people use music as a couch, they want to be pillowed on it, relaxed and consoled for the stress of daily living. It was never meant to make people being prejudice towards your preference.
