I Am A Muslim

I am a Muslim
And Allah I praise
For all His blessings
My voice I raise
In one God I believe
No equal has He
Lord of the universe
Compassionate to me

Muhammad the prophet
Taught me the way
To be honest and truthful
Throughout every day
The holy Qur'an
To life is my guide
It's teachings I follow
By it I abide

Islam my religion
Preaches good deeds
Mercy and kindness
To the right path it leads
To recite the shahada in one God we must believe
Sharing is called zakat, which we must all do indeed
Its five times a day, that we should prey
Ramadan is when we must fast, and its the pilgrimige to meccah that comes last Islam my religion

Upon all humanity
God showers His grace
Regardless of colour
Nationality or race
Through working together
Our hopes increase
To live in a world
Full of love and peace

I am a Muslim
And God I praise
For all His blessings
My voice I raise
