بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
but He sent me His ray -
I used to roam around, aimless,
but He showed me the way -
I used to feel cold,
but He gave me warmth -
I was so close to death,
now I'm a new born soul.
I used to be homeless,
but He gave me shelter -
I used to be hopeless,
but tomorrow's gonna be better.
I used to be numb, inwardly empty,
but He kindled the fire of faith inside me.
He fed my hunger with wisdom,
and quenched my thirst with knowledge,
He healed my wounds with belief
and recovered my weak body with hope.
I was a wasting squanderer,
but He gave me more -
I was a worldly wanderer,
but He invited me to enter His shore.
I longed for being a winner,
but I soared higher above -
I was just an overloaded sinner,
still Allah embraced me with His love.
