Lyrics to the song "The Beautiful Story of Yusuf" by Dawud Wharnsby

We sipped our tea as he sat next to me cross-legged on the floor
And he spoke of his youth, thrown to the wolves,
As student of the hardship of war.
A war that shaped him and molded him to, a grateful and God-fearing man
The struggle of a nation burned in his eyes as he relived his war torn homeland.
Accused and abused he was stolen away, no justice exists with no law.
Like the Prophet Yusuf he was thrown into prison
But they couldn't cage his faith in Allah.

The beautiful story of Yusuf, has so much to fill our lives.
A lesson in forgiveness and brotherhood we can not compromise.
The power of patience and the fire of hope, must burn in the hearts of the wise.
The beautiful story of Yusuf, has so much to fill our lives.

It seemed like endless days and morningless nights, his family so blind with concern
While he held tight to his hope and his faith in Allah
For the day they would see his return.
The guards laughing in the black of the night as they kicked him and beat him raw,
And the blood and the dirt and the grime of the world and the dark side of man that he saw.
And in the minutes and hours and years that dripped by,
graying away his youth,
He spent his hours in quiet worship and a silent Jihad for the truth.

The beautiful story of Yusuf, has so much to fill our lives.
A lesson in forgiveness and brotherhood we can not compromise.
The power of patience and the fire of hope, must burn in the hearts of the wise.
The beautiful story of Yusuf, has so much to fill our lives.

He wiped tears from his cheek with the smile on his face,
brushed the hair back from his daughter's eyes,
and as she finished her lesson and closed her Qur'an, it was clear then to recognize,
Allah only tests those that he loves. His little girl climbed up on to his knees
the words of Allah are clear to the world, "After hardship will always come ease".

The beautiful story of Yusuf, has so much to fill our lives.
A lesson in forgiveness and brotherhood we can not compromise.
The power of patience and the fire of hope, must burn in the hearts of the wise.
The beautiful story of Yusuf, has so much to fill our lives.

Dawud Ali Wharnsby is THE greatest muslim musician to compose and sing Islamic songs in English, taking into account the fact that English, naturally, is not a very melodius language. His songs touch me deep down.May Allah bless him in all aspects of his noble cause as well as in his personal well-being
