Alhumdulillah By Dawud W. Ali


I’m just a rock,

And everyday I sit,

And watch the sky…

I sit here in the sun and rain,

And do not question why….

I don’t want to be a bird,

Cause us rocks,

Were never meant to fly…

But you can sit and rest on me…

When you pass by…

Alhumdulillah…

Alhumdulillah,

I’m a rock,

La illaha illahllah…

And that is all,

Allah asked of me,

La illaha illahllah…

Alhumdulillah…

Alhumdulillah,

I’m a Muslim,

La illaha illahllah…

And there’s nothing else,

I’d rather be,

La illaha illahllah…

I’m just a tree,

And this is the only life,

I’ll ever know…

I bow my bows and worship,

Whenever I feel the wind blow…

And my purpose in life,

Is to grow when Allah says grow…

And be a home for the birds and shade…

For folks below…

Alhumdulillah…

Alhumdulillah,

I’m a tree,

La illaha illahllah…

And that is all,

Allah asked of me,

La illaha illahllah…

Alhumdulillah…

Alhudulillah,

I’m a Muslim,

La illaha illahllah…

And there’s nothing else,

I’d rather be,

La illaha illahllah…

I’m just a person,

And my life is full of oppurtunity…

I can travel through the world,

Over land and over sea…

But will I choose the path of truth,

Or the path to misguide me…

Sometimes I wish I had a simpler life…

Just like a rock or a tree…

But Alhumdulillah…

Alhumdulillah,

I’m a person,

La illaha illahllah…

And Allah has given me,

A choice that’s free,

La illaha illahllah…

So Alhumdulillah,

I choose to be,

A Muslim,

La illaha illahllah…

And there’s nothing else,

I’d rather be,

La illaha illahllah…

No there’s nothing else,

I’d rather be,

La illaha illahllah!
