..The Veil..

Do you remember DWA or mostly known as Dawud Wharnsby Ali?? I posted about a lyrics from his  song  “What Did I Do Today?” couple months ago and now, I’d like to post another lyrics of  his song called “The Veil”

I found this song while I’m searching for religious song (nasyid) because it’s Ramadhan. During Ramadhan, it’s better to listen a good thing like murottal (Al Qur’an) or nasyid  so we can always keep Alloh in our heart and mind.

This song is quiet nice.. Hope it could inspire you.. ^^

The Veil by Dawud Wharnsby Ali

They say, ‘Oh, poor girl, you’re so beautiful you know
It’s a shame that you cover up your beauty so.’
She just smiles and graciously responds reassuringly,
‘This beauty that I have is just one simple part of me.
This body that I have, no stranger has the right to see.
These long clothes, this shawl I wear, ensure my modesty.
Faith is more essential than fashion, wouldn’t you agree?’
This hijab,
This mark of piety,
Is an act of faith, a symbol,
For all the world to see.
A simple cloth, to protect her dignity.
So lift the veil from your heart to see the heart of purity.
They tell her, ‘Girl, don’t you know this is the West and you are free?
You don’t need to be oppressed, ashamed of your femininity.’
She just shakes her head and she speaks so assuredly,
‘See the bill-boards and the magazines that line the check-out isles,
with their phony painted faces and their air-brushed smiles?
Well their sheer clothes and low cut gowns they are really not for me.
You call it freedom, I call it anarchy.’
This hijab,
This mark of piety,
Is an act of faith, a symbol,
For all the world to see.
A simple cloth, to protect her dignity.
So lift the veil from your heart to see the heart of purity.
Lift the veil from your heart and seek the heart of purity.
