by Muhammad Ali, USA
In this life we have a great job to do;
It is a trial for us and we're just passing through.
The Holy Qur'an will always be our Guide:
It is ALLAH's Final Revelation that we must abide.
We constantly combat wrong and strive for Right...
We're champions of the oppressed, in a worldwide fight!
Working together to establish our place;
Falsehood, ignorance, and poverty we will erase!
Let us build model communities throughout the land...
Our descendants will know we followed ALLAH's Command.
We will produce from ALLAH's Earth our material share:
Don't give us things such as food stamps and welfare!
Our Islamic communities will produce everything we need...
May ALLAH bless us with faith, patience, and perseverance to succeed!
