Sami Yusuf (chorus)
I wish you were here
here next to me
Im missing you so? so desperately
But lately I feel like you feel
and I see what I see how Im missing you..

Waqas :
What happend to the Ummah once known so well?

..(chorus)..

You used to inspire others with your way of thinking and speech
People came from afar just to hear us teach

What happend to the Ummah once known so well?
Greatness was known but now can you tell
Mosques are empty, refrigerators are stocked
We lost our deen, we feel secure because our mansions are locked
In my teen years salat really wasnt that tight
Now i gotta pray each one of them twice.

What happend to the Ummah once known so well?
Greatness was known but now can you tell
Brother we prefer light skinned women
while righteously maintain our deen against raicism (and tribalism)?

What happend to the Ummah once known so well?
Greatness was known but now can you tell
can you

..(chorus)..

Isam:

What happend to the Ummah once known so well?
Greatness was known but now can you tell
Kids in Africa starving cant afford to cry
I?ll pay the bank interest on a car I cant afford to buy

What happend to the Ummah once known so well?
Greatness was known but now can you tell
We used to smile at each other with faces full of light
Now we frown on each other, we bicker, and we fight
Pops in the mosque praying,
kids in the streets haitin
kids on the corner selling pot and in the mosque preaching?

What happend to the Ummah once known so well?
Greatness was known but now can you tell
The Quran has left our hearts - stranded hanging on our walls
6,232 verses so strong
9 out of 10 of us cant even read it or write
1924 seems distand like way before Christ

..(chorus)..

Lenny:

que le paso a la masa como puede ser
la grandesa conosida no la puedo ber
he bisto como mi figura cahe en tentation
al pesar que la vida ha esido buena con luce e ilusion
he bebido! perdon por mis pecados
tengo la cruce sobre mi cama
e il diablo a mi lado
que le paso a la masa como puede ser
la bellesa conosida no la puedo ber
e sentido incompetentia buscando la verdad
todos disen conoserla solo beo la maldad
que le paso a la masa como puede ser
la puressa conosida no la puedo ber

>> translation: <<

((
what happened to the uma how can that be?
the greatness known once i can?t see it no more
i have seen my eyes falling in temptation
although life has given me light and ilussions
i have drinked!forgiveness for my sins
i have the cross on the wall over my bed
and the devil at my side
what happened to the uma how can that be?
the beauty i known i can?t see it no more
i have felt the incompetence in my way to truth
everybody pretends to know it, but all i see is evil
what happened to the uma how can that be?
the purity i known i can?t see it no more
))

Isam:

If I was to fall on my knees and ask you to forgive everything and anyone out of love for the one? oh oh oh
I?ve seen..
And if you were to fall on your knees and ask me the same but I dont even think about it?,
lets just break out of the darkness of ignorance.

..(chorus).. X2
