TRACKLIST + LINER NOTES / LYRICS

1. the sun of guidance

A Nasheed about the greatness of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). The lyrics discuss the spiritual reality of the most honored one amongst creation.

LYRICS
The sun of guidance has risen 
With the birth of Muhammad 
And creation was given 
The secret of existence (2) 

Allahumma salli wa sallim ala nooril-huda 
Allahumma salli wa sallim ala badri-duja (2) 

He was created from His light 
From the light of Almighty 
And this light was dressed with more light 
Since pre-eternity 

Allahumma salli wa sallim ala nooril-huda 
Allahumma salli wa sallim ala badri-duja (2) 

From his light, all things were created 
The tablet and the pen 
The angels and the heavens 
The Earth, humans, and Jinn 

Allahumma salli wa sallim ala nooril-huda 
Allahumma salli wa sallim ala badri-duja (2) 

If you think you know Muhammad 
Please think again 
The only one who knows Muhammad 
Is the One who created him 

Allahumma salli wa sallim ala nooril-huda 
Allahumma salli wa sallim ala badri-duja

2. the love of muhammad

A Nasheed about the importance of loving Sayyidina Muhammad (pbuh)

LYRICS

The Love of Muhammad and his family 
Is my true Religion, my reason to be 
And if when I die, my sins are too many 
The love of Muhammad will rescue me 

Allahumma salli alal-Mustafa, Allahumma salli alal-Mustafa 
Habeebna Muhammad alaihis-salam, Habeebna Muhammad alaihis-salam 

May God bless the Bedouin, for the question he asked 
It unveiled the secret of the power of love 
The answer to which made Abu Bakr dance 
You’ll be with the ones whom you love  

Allahumma salli alal-Mustafa, Allahumma salli alal-Mustafa 
Habeebna Muhammad alaihis-salam, Habeebna Muhammad alaihis-salam 

For Allah to love you, obey his command 
It says if you love me, then follow Muhammad 
To follow Muhammad, you must love Muhammad 
For how can you follow that which you don’t love 

Allahumma salli alal-Mustafa, Allahumma salli alal-Mustafa 
Habeebna Muhammad alaihis-salam, Habeebna Muhammad alaihis-salam 

If you love Muhammad, you must love everyone 
For his light is truly inside everyone 
He’s the mercy sent to everyone 
Only through love, can we all be one 

Allahumma salli alal-Mustafa, Allahumma salli alal-Mustafa 
Habeebna Muhammad alaihis-salam

3. when i saw his light

This is one of Ali Elsayed's personal favorite songs on album. Here is the story of how he was inspired to write this song; 

"One day, I heard a couple of verses in Arabic, praising Sayyidina Muhammad (pbuh). These two verses were attributed to the poet of the Prophet (pbuh), Sayyidna Hassan bin Thabit (ra). The verses touched my heart and made me reflect upon the eternal beauty of the Prophetic light, and what would happen if Allah would reveal the heavenly beauty of His beloved Prophet (pbuh). The poet tried to describe his first encounter with the light of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). After much reflection, I decided to write a song about such an encounter."


Here are the Arabic verses I based "When I Saw His Light" On: 
لما رأيت أنواره سطعت .. وضعت من خيفتي كفي على بصري 
خوفاً على بصري من حسن صورته .. فلست أنظره إلا على قدري 
روح من النور في جسم من القمر .. كحلية نسجت من الأنجم الزهر

LYRICS

When I saw his light 
I had to cover my eyes 
In fear for my sight 
from his amazing beauty 
No words can describe 
The beauty of his light 
In fear for my sight 
I had to cover my eyes 

Salatullah salamullah ala Taha Rasulillah 
Salatullah Salamullah ala Yaseen Habibillah 

A spirit made of light 
In the form of the moon 
As if the brilliant stars 
We're woven into his form 
The limits of my mind 
Could not contain his light 
In fear for my sight 
I had to cover my eyes 

Salatullah salamullah ala Taha Rasulillah 
Salatullah Salamullah ala Yaseen Habibillah 

Oh Magnificent soul 
What kind of beauty You possess 
for the creator of all 
To call you His beloved 
For 70 thousand years 
He gazed upon your light 
Oh magnificent light 
In Fear for my sight 
I had to cover my eyes

5. hu - one

This nasheed is about the reality of what it means to be human.

LYRICS

Hu Hu Hu, Hai Hai Hai Hai 
Hu Hu Hu, Hai Hai Hai Hai 

One Father one Mother 
One Home we call earth 
One Truth to uncover 
One Creator who creates 

Hu Hu Hu, Hai Hai Hai Hai 
Hu Hu Hu, Hai Hai Hai Hai 

These eyes see illusion 
They see many when there is one 
These ears hear confusion 
Then there are two when there was one 

Hu Hu Hu, Hai Hai Hai Hai

Human beings be aware, 
of the great honor, we share 
That our Lord bestowed upon us 
The great honor existence 
The great lord of the constellations 
Made us part of His creation 
To be in awe of His Magnificence 
He created us to witness 

Allah Hu Allah Hai Allah Hu Hu 

One God one religion 
His religion is love 
If we don’t love one another 
We’re not religious enough 

Hu Hu Hu, Hai Hai Hai Hai 
Hu Hu Hu, Hai Hai Hai Hai 

Hu Hu Hu, Hai Hai Hai Hai 
Hu Hu Hu, Hai Hai Hai Hai

6. ahmad my beloved - ahmad ya habibi

Ahmad is one of the names of the greatest man in all of the creation, Sayyidna Muhammad (pbuh). This Nasheed is an attempt to describe something of his greatness, the role he plays in this existence, and what he means to each and every human being.

LYRICS

Ahmad ya habibi salam Alaik 
Ahmad ya habibi salam Alaik 

You were sent as mercy, mercy to all the worlds 
From the lord of mercy, a gift to all the worlds 
Like the full moon you shine in the darkness of the night 
This world could not exist, if it wasn't for your light 

Ahmad ya habibi salam Alaik 
Ahmad ya habibi salam Alaik 

Have you not heard our Lord, telling his beloved Muhammad 
They must first come to you if they want me to forgive them 
Have you not heard our Lord, telling him to say 
If what you seek is Allah's love, you must first follow me 

Ahmad ya habibi salam Alaik 
Ahmad ya habibi salam Alaik 

Like a mother loves her child, you love humanity 
And that which you most desire, is for us to be happy 
We will suffer endlessly, if with us you don't stand 
We'll be lost forever. if you don't hold our hand 

Ahmad ya habibi salam Alaik 
Ahmad ya habibi salam Alaik 

And you will intercede, when no one else dares 
And you will succeed, where all the others failed 
Raise you head My Beloved, ask and you'll be given 
My Nation is what you'll ask, send them my lord to heavens 

Ahmad ya habibi salam Alaik 
Ahmad ya habibi salam Alaik
