Mount Hira by Zain Bhikha – Subhana’llah!

In The Name of Allah, The Merciful, The Compassionate

I’m sure you have all heard his name and his anasheed, but I’ve just recently been introduced to Zain Bhikha’s works. In fact, I have just a couple of his anasheed. His nasheed entitled Mount Hira [available here in RealPlayer format], for me was incredibly moving, it brought tears to this hard-hearted one’s eyes.

The lyrics are as follows:

The same moon, the same star
Gazed right down at Rasulu ’Llah
They saw him climb, down from Hira
Now a Prophet, Prophet of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم
And in the sky, was angel Jibra’il
He said O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم, O Rasulu ’Llah صلى الله عليه وسلم
And so he walked, into Makkah
In his heart echoed “Iqra”, “Iqra”
And from the world, darkness was gone
with salvation, rising with dawn
for here was a blessing, a gift from Allah
and the light of Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم, outshone that star

Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم is, and always will be
the last and final Prophet of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم
He was a mercy, unto the universe
peace and blessings be on Al-Mustafa صلى الله عليه وسلم
So he began, this perfect man
Sending his word, across the land
leading only, by his sunnah
And the Quran, the word of Allah
He brought the answer to this cruel world
Our beloved Prophet, Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم

So from that cave, in Mount Hira
To the holy city of Madinah
in life and death, he showed Islam
Opened our hearts to the wealth of Iman
So o Allah, hear my du‘a
Keep me as part of the Prophet’s صلى الله عليه وسلم ummah (Aameen!)

Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم is, and always will be
the last and final Prophet of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم
He was a mercy, unto the universe
peace and blessings be on al-Mustafa صلى الله عليه وسلم
So he began, this perfect man
Sending his word, across the land
leading only, by his sunnah
And the Quran, the word of Allah
He brought the answer to this cruel world
Our beloved Prophet, Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم

The same moon, the same star
Gazed right down at Rasulu ’Llah صلى الله عليه وسلم
They saw him climb, down from Hira
Now a Prophet, Prophet of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم
And in the sky, was angel Jibra’il
He said O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم, O Rasulu ’Llah صلى الله عليه وسلم
He said O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم, Nabi of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم
He said O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم, Prophet of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم

[Allahumma Salli ‘Ala Sayyidina Muhammad, wa ‘Ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Sallim]
