For The Path

By Novid Shaid, 2011

.

Oh Allah thanks and praise be!

For Your tremendous bounties

For the path which You conceived

Which leads us to Your Beauty!

.

Chorus: La ilaha illalah

.

Oh Allah thanks and praise be!

For Your magnanimity!

Guidance like a sanctuary

Through Nabi Muhammad’s Deen

.

La ilaha illalah…

.

Oh Allah thanks and praise be!

For the path of Jilani!

Naqshbandi and Shadhili!

And all the paths of certainty!

.

La ilaha illalah…

.

Oh Allah thanks and praise be!

For Your paths which never cease

When we fell, they hauled us up

When we feared, they strengthened us!

.

La ilaha illalah…

.

Oh Allah thanks and praise be!

For Your path which carries us

It caught us when we slipped up

It lifted us when we gave up!

.

La ilaha illalah…

.

Oh Allah thanks and praise be!

For Your path of Remembrance

For the prayers and litanies

Filling us with certainty!

.

La ilaha illalah…

.

Oh Allah thanks and praise be!

For this path of brotherhood

Joining hearts of different hues

United for Your gratitude!

.

La ilaha illalah…

.

Oh Allah thanks and praise be!

For this path of instruction

For the ones who You preferred

Teachers of Your blessed Word.

.

La ilaha illalah…

.

Oh Allah thanks and praise be!

For the light of the Hadra!

Echoes beating like a heart

Stirring words which break our hearts!

.

La ilaha illalah…

.

Oh Allah thanks and praise be!

Keep us on Your sacred path!

Up until our final breath

Wrap us in its warm embrace.

.

La ilaha illalah…

.

Oh Allah thanks and praise be!

For Your Nabi Muhammad!

Bless him and his family

And his friends and followers!

.

La ilaha illalah…
