Unity

Youths scattered all around
It’s time to unite
It’s time to be found
So sit up right
And get off the ground
We are tomorrow’s leaders today
So we have to train ourselves this way
What we have right now is not unity
But in fact it’s the opposite you see
All the bickering and fighting needs to be stopped
We need to realize something’s wrong and popped
Or else we’ll have a harsh reality shock

Unity: Please say it with me
Unity: Let’s say it with glee
Unity: Let’s say it for free
Unity: Sounds good to me

We can’t have the unity if we don’t know one another
We have to be like a mirror onto our brother
So sisters and brothers look to your left and look to your right
And say ismee so and so and let us all unite
If we want to see this unity
We have to be able to come to be
Aware of our brothers, see
Because if we’re split up and divided
We can’t accomplish items to become united
For this day let us put away our jamaat ties
Let us get to know one another and hold off the goodbyes
Because we will be one ummah, one community with little flaw
But we will be truly united inshaAllah

Unity: Please say it with me
Unity: Let’s say it with glee
Unity: Let’s say it for free
Unity: Sounds good to me

We all have the same goal in mind
But what are we gonna do to complete it in time
We have to step up to the plate
And get organized before it’s too late
Being here is a tremendous first step
Let’s make the dive to oneness and hold our breath



Come on, let us be open minded to what we must achieve
Our ignorant ways is what we must leave
Cause we are the talented youths with a clear task
And our task is to do the Dawah without a mask
So let’s make dua sisters and brothers that we will unite
Let’s make dua brothers and sisters that we will invite

Unity: Please say it with me
Unity: Let’s say it with glee
Unity: Let’s say it for free
Unity: Sounds good to me

Take this poetry as an example of unity,
Written by brothers in the U.S and the UAE.
You see? Working together brings the best result
And giving advice decreases the amount of fault.
Think about it, think about all of us united.
I’m sure the picture you get will make you really delighted.
Cuz once we’re united our voice will be loud and clear.
Once we’re united Allah will be our ONLY fear!
No more tears will need to be cried cuz we’ll be much stronger.
Ponder upon this, but don’t ponder much longer,
But take action before our ummah starts to dissolve.
And see how our unity will help our problems be solved.

Unity: Please say it with me
Unity: Let’s say it with glee
Unity: Let’s say it for free
Unity: Sounds good to me

The bright light of Islam will be seen once we unite
Together we can help each other to reach a new height
So let’s reunite tonight, if not all, at least you and I
Once united we’ll be able to tear through the sky
We’ll be able to show Islam as what it actually is
So let’s get together and put away our differences
Before it’s too late and we die and the questioning begins
That’s when we’ll be helpless, accounted for our goods and sins

Unity: Please say it with me
Unity: Let’s say it with glee
Unity: Let’s say it for free
Unity: Now that sounds good to me
