Awaken Lyrics

By: Maher Zain

We were given so many prizes
We changed the desert into oasis
We built buildings of different lengths and sizes
And we felt so very satisfied
We bought and bought
We couldn’t stop buying
We gave charity to the poor ’cause
We couldn’t stand their crying
We thought we paid our dues
But in fact
To ourselves we’re just lying
Oh

I’m walking with my head lowered in shame from my place
I’m walking with my head lowered from my race
Yes it’s easy to blame everything on the west
When in fact all focus should be on ourselves

We were told what to buy and we’d bought
We went to London, Paris and
We made show we were seen in the most exlusive shops
Yes we felt so very satisfied

We felt our money gave us infinite power
We forgot to teach our children about history and honor
We didn’t have any time to lose
When we were.. (were)
So busy feeling so satisfied

I’m walking with my head lowered in shame from my place
I’m walking with my head lowered from my race
Yes it’s easy to blame everything on the west
When in fact all focus should be on ourselves

We became the visuals without a soul
despite the heat
Our homes felt so empty and cold
To fill the emptiness
We bought and bought
Maybe all the fancy cars
And bling will make us feel satisfied

My dear brother and sister
It’s time to change inside
Open your eyes
Don’t throw away what’s right aside
Before the day comes
When there’s nowhere to run and hide
Now ask yourself ’cause Allah’s watching you

Is He satisfied?
Is Allah satisfied?
Is Allah satisfied?
Is Allah satisfied?

Oh
I’m walking with my head lowered in shame from my place
I’m walking with my head lowered from my race
Yes it’s easy to blame everything on the west
When in fact all focus should be on ourselves

  8. I heard your song "Insha Allah" on the radio recently while driving in Cairo, and I couldn't believe myself–I really liked it. I never thought that it would happen in my life that I would like an Islamic-theme song, but I did, and I bought your CD. The other songs that I like is "Awaken" and "Thank you Allah" Your voice is calming and your lyrics are so meaningful. Shokran Maher. Best wishes from an Egyptian Christian fan.

  15. lirik yang sangat menyentuh.

    memberikan pertanyaan tentang apa yang telah kita lakukan selama ini.

    sehingga, kita harus lebih introspeksi ke dalam.

    Semoga ALLAH SWT selalu melimpahkan hidayah-Nya pada Maher Zain dan kita semua (umat Muslim di seluruh dunia)

    Amiiin ya Rabbal Alamin
