When I Grow Up Lyrics


What will I be when I grow up… (x3)… As a Muslim man
A teacher is what I want to be. People will come and learn from me
I’ll teach science and history. And I’ll teach Quraan

What will I be when I grow up… (x3)… As a Muslima
A writer is what I want to be. People will read the books by me
I’ll write stories and poetry. Insha’Allah

What will we be when we grow up? (x3)… As Muslims everywhere
We want to be the best we can. Follow the prophet and Quraan
Every Muslim, women and man. Pleasing Allah

What will I be when I grow up? (x3)… As a Muslima
A doctor is what I want to be. Discover the cure for hiv
Treat the poor and the needy. If Allah wills, you’ll see

What will I be when I grow up? (x3)… As a Muslim man
A sailor is what I want to be. Sail across the seven seas
Spreading peace and harmony. That’s the life for me

What will we be when we grow up? (x3)… As Muslims everywhere.
We want to be the best we can. Follow the prophet and Quraan.
Every Muslim, woman and man. Pleasing Allah

What will I be when I grow up? (x3)… As a Muslima
A mummy is what I want to be. I’ll raise children just like me
To go through life with dignity. That is what I’ll be

What will we be when we grow up? (x3)… As Muslims everywhere.
We want to be the best we can. Follow the prophet and Quraan
Every Muslim, woman and man. Pleasing Allah
