Open Your Eyes Lyrics


By: Maher Zain

Look around yourselves
Can’t you see this wonder
Spreaded infront of you
The clouds floating by
The skies are clear and blue
Planets in the orbits
The moon and the sun
Such perfect harmony

Let’s start question in ourselves
Isn’t this proof enough for us
Or are we so blind
To push it all aside..
No..

We just have to
Open our eyes, our hearts, and minds
If we just look bright to see the signs
We can’t keep hiding from the truth
Let it take us by surprise
Take us in the best way
(Allah..)
Guide us every single day..
(Allah..)
Keep us close to You
Until the end of time..

Look inside yourselves
Such a perfect order
Hiding in yourselves
Running in your veins
What about anger love and pain
And all the things you’re feeling
Can you touch them with your hand?
So are they really there?

Lets start question in ourselves
Isn’t this proof enough for us?
Or are we so blind
To push it all aside..?
No..

We just have to
Open our eyes, our hearts, and minds
If we just look bright to see the signs
We can’t keep hiding from the truth
Let it take us by surprise
Take us in the best way
(Allah..)
Guide us every single day..
(Allah..)
Keep us close to You
Until the end of time..

When a baby’s born
So helpless and weak
And you’re watching him growing..
So why deny
Whats in front of your eyes
The biggest miracle of life..

We just have to
Open our eyes, our hearts, and minds
If we just look quiet we’ll see the signs
We can’t keep hiding from the truth
Let it take us by surprise
Take us in the best way
(Allah..)
Guide us every single day..
(Allah..)
Keep us close to You
Until the end of time..

Open your eyes and hearts and minds
If you just look bright to see the signs
We can’t keep hiding from the truth
Let it take us by surprise
Take us in the best way
(Allah..)
Guide us every single day..
(Allah..)
Keep us close to You
Until the end of time..

Allah..
You created everything
We belong to You
Ya Robb we raise our hands
Forever we thank You..
Alhamdulillah..

  1. wow,I was shocked to the depth of meaning and the lyrics that he bring, let this be a reminder to us and not carried away with the song that we forget the Qur’an.

    Nothing to match the depth of meaning and truth of its beauty qur’an.

    • yup, I agree with u nabilah. It bothered me too…I guess because of the american pronunciation so it becomes “Let’s start questionin’ ourselves”, that causes the lyrics at first to be written as “question in”…Another part that bothered me was “If we just look bright/quiet”…It sounds a bit odd to me..Wallahualam…Anyway, fell in love with all his songs after my husband played this song in our car…A great eye opener..Thank you for the lovely words that made all of us a step closer to Allah..May Allah bless u!!

    What about anger, love and pain
    And all the things you’re feeling

    ‘Look inside cell’!

  32. AllahhuAkbar!

    Yes its true that Quran and Hadith is the main reference and guidence.

    But with this song,it may lead us to get know who are we ? Who is Allah ?

    With this modern era,songs have been a new medium to spread Islam. By this song,people will start thinking and slowly get to know theirselves and Allah better.

    (its just my opinion,sorry if ure disagree)

    Takbir !

    • agreed. in fact it is fascinating to note that Mr Maher's lyrics are revolved mostly around the beauty of loving Allah and his Prophet SAW by really appreciating and really opening our eyes, hearts and minds to Allah's endless creations in this universe. His songs bring tears to our eyes, open our hearts to the many possibilities of life. If you ever want to make an impression for a friend who is "lost"…have him presented with a Maher Zain's CD. He is sure gonna find the Way, insya Allah

  44. Why can't we directly print the lyrics? Tedious job to copy. My 4 younger kids – ages 3 to 12; and 3 teenage ones; would love it if I were to put it on their walls (room walls not their Facebook walls) with large fonts. They could learn the songs by heart as well as improve their vocabulary skills. Then they can be more aware of the fact that they are Muslim kids who must love Allah above everything and everyone else. I do hope MZ can produce a 2nd album that includes songs for young Muslims especially teenagers who seem to have kinda lost some directions and focus as Muslims. I believe music and the appropriate lyrics could inspire them to seek the truth about Allah and his Prophet SAW and the al Quran. Wallahu A'lam, Jazakallahu khairan kathira from a mom in Malaysia. Happy mothers day 2011 to all moms in the world, our iconic mothers Siti Maryam (radhiAllahu anha), Siti Fatimah binti Muhammad SAW, the ever strong-hearted Sumaiyah and all great mothers depicted in the al Quran.
