Let me take a moment to show some kindness, To the folks who blindness was a disease that effected the eyes alone, I promise I won't judge you, I barely know how to love you And like fools we preach rules, but we don't even follow our own.
Everybody needs comfort, Some people find it in this; some people find it in that And some people just don't find it at all.
But this world is full of signs From the moon to the stars in the sky From the bees and the bugs, like a seed in your blood Like a feen to a drug, makes you need to look up And questions what's up, why you deal with this stuff? When your spirits are crushed and you trek through the rough But like thunder it struck, said "Be" and it was
All the signs that were sent, they finally make sense You feel the torment, so you need to repent When your heart is cement, it's hard as a brick Cause your soul is worth more than the dollars and cents, All the money in the world couldn't buy you happiness Cause "verily, it is in the remembrance of Allah, that hearts do find rest"
And do not get it confused, I'm not a scholar or a preacher I'm just a regular dude, who makes mistakes too But we are reflections true, So I can't talk about me without talking about you
And who knew? We would end up in a place so confused Where little boys wanna be like little girls and little girls just wanna be abused Where the terrorize the truth, mentally arrest the youth Even though there is no law but Allahs' and momma didn't raise no fool.
And who knew? That expecting the world to treat you fairy because you think you're a good person, Would be a little like expecting a bull not to attack you because you're a vegetarian, You can't begin to learn what you think you already know In mans own ignorance we forgot that women once watched us grow And before that you were a tiny ball of flesh without any bones And before that you were just unknown, and now look behold You have the arrogance to assume that you just made it on your own? But what were you but a chewed piece of clot, before the grew And who knew you would trace you ancestry back to a zoo? You must have really come from apes with your monkey point of views Even the devil believes in God, so what does that make you?
And it's true Sometimes I feel like Noah preaching to a packed empty room Nobody wanna listen until we start rolling out two by two I'm a big fan of Abraham; never break-up from Jacob Joseph had the kind of beauty that you couldn't find in makeup Moses was to Pharaoh what stones are to arrows And David to Goliath was truth is to silence Following, Solomon I'd get down too Contrary to popular belief, Jesus is my homeboy too. So peace be upon the whole crew who came to teach what we never knew Even though few caught the groove, the never turned blue Never confused what was true even if it was a taboo Never came for fame or praise but to praise who the prayed too
And who knew? That an unlettered man from the middle of the desert, Would change the whole world from darkness into heaven You may have every title, every big shot degree But you still can't explain: Alif-Lam-Meem
And who knew? There would be so many views and way to explain That he's closer to you than your jugular vein So if you complain that God must be cruel Can you give Allah, all that he gives to you? From the breath that you breath, to the trees that you feed From the eyes that you see, to the sea that you eat If I cut you, you bleed, than you heal magically Were the illest machines, manufactured for means. The concepts extreme but this world is a dream, It's not what it seems filled with lies and deceit The truth is serene so wake up smell the deen Praises be to He, His Oneness, Supreme Totally unique, in no need of sleep Not like you or me, his greatness complete No partners, no mates, no father, no sons No discount 3 in 1, just Allah Azwa Jal Even the birds sing his name, The Lord of all the worlds Glory be to He and to Allah is our return
