    What Happened?

    By Masood

    What happened to the ummah once known so well?
    Our greatness was known, but now can you tell?
    Our Masaajid are empty, but our refrigerators are stocked.
    We've lost our deen, but we feel secure, our mansions are locked.

    What happened to the ummah once known so well?
    Our greatness was known, but now can you tell?
    Our children don't know even how to pray.
    "But hey, little Mo got a A in Physics so I guess that's OK."

    What happened to the ummah once known so well?
    Our greatness was known, but now can you tell?
    We sleep through fajr, but are up for the world cup.
    "What go to the Mosque? Brother I'm busy filling my pocket up!"

    What happened to the ummah once known so well?
    Our greatness was known, but now can you tell?
    Children in Africa are starving and thus can't even afford to cry.
    "What? Sorry I missed that, I was on my cell, but go on I just said good-bye."

    What happened to the ummah once known so well?
    Our greatness was known, but now can you tell?
    We used to smile at each other with faces full of light.
    Now we frown at each other, we bicker and we fight.

    What happened to the ummah once known so well?
    Our greatness was known, but now can you tell?
    The Quran has left our hearts and is stranded hanging on our walls.
    "Brother what was that, did you say something about a mall?"

    What happened to the ummah that was once so fare?
    "Forget the ummah, man I don't even really care!"
    But our sisters in Chechnya are raped, beaten and left alone just weeping!
    "Brother, I got to go, my pager is beeping..."

    Oh Allah, increase the ummah in our love for You, Your Messenger and Your deen.
    Oh Allah, send Your peace and blessings upon Muhammad, the last of the Prophets and Messengers.

    Ameen
