    The Veil
    (From the Sound Vision documentary Hijab: An Act of Faith)

    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.

Comment: salmz! i think wat Dawoud is doing is fantastic with the nasheeds, becoz i really enjoy them and honestly it has brought me closer to islam. born muslim in england can be hard and your mind is turned against wat is important and i think if dawud has partly helped me on the right path, i hope inshalla that this is the case for many others inshallah. thankyou

Comment: I listened to it, and I go back and back to listen to it again and again. It is a song that reminds me of whom I am and I should be proud of my being an hijaby. All I can say when I listen to it without any hesitation is "Alhamdulilah ala niimatal islam"..All praise belongs to Allah on His favour of Islam on me".May Allah reward u abundantly.ni'ima

My Rubb,
I beg of you good that lies in this night and good that follows it, and I seek refuge in You from the evil that lies in this night and from the evil of that which follows it. My Rubb! I seek refuge in You from lethargy and the misery of old age. O Allah! I seek Your Protection from the torment of Hell-fire and the punishment of the grave.
