Peace Be Upon You

There’s faith in my world
It comes back to your teachings and all your words
From your life I have learnt
To be patient and caring at every turn
The reason I’m strong
You’re where I belong
In a world spinning out of control
The reason for my pride
You are my guide
And I will always follow your way
Your way, your way, oh!

‘Alayka salla Allah O Muhammad
(May Allah’s salutations be upon you O Muhammad)
Peace & blessings on you every day
‘Alayka salla Allah O Muhammad
You inspire me in every way
I promise that wherever I go
Whenever I pray
I’ll be sending you praise
With the words that I say
Rasulallah (Messenger of Allah), O Muhammad
Peace & blessings on you every day

There’s light in my heart
Helps me find my way back when I’ve gone too far
When all my anger makes me blind
I remember you’re a mercy for all mankind
The reason I forgive as long as I live
In a world spinning out of control
The reason I love, I’ll never give up
And I will always follow your way
Your way, your way, oh!

I know the only thing I want from this life
And it’s to follow all your footsteps to Paradise
So that’s the way I’m going to spend all my time
Yes I swear, by Allah I swear!

I am a type of person who usually does not care about the meaning of the lyrics of every song that I listen to, I just sing them haha. But this song is definitely different from the others. Whenever I listen to this song, each lyric just touched my heart deeply. I feel like “Yes, the only thing I want from this life is to follow Rasulullah’s steps to Paradise”. Yeah, I do feel like that when I listen to this song, it gives me hope and reasons for me to be a better person. I might forget sometimes, well most of the time but I do realize about my purpose in this life. Sometimes I just wish that I could just erase my bad habits easily like erasing a word but it’s hard. You know. Sometimes I am confident with myself that I can do this but after a while, I just forget. However, I feel really thankful to Allah that He provides me with the best companions in this life such as my wonderful family, circle of close friends who always reminds me of Allah SWT and to always do everything for the sake of Allah. I am really thankful to always get reminded because not everyone gets this and not everyone would realize their mistakes and repent from them. Someone once told me that “Everything is a process and everyone has their own pace in making changes. Not necessarily that you want to be better, you will be better at one shot. It is a process and it takes time. Even the sahabahs of Rasulullah had their phases before they become the greatest of people, mashaAllah.” Hope this would help anyone who is also in the process of making changes like me 🙂
That’s all for today. Salam Jumaah!
