KoE is my name; KoE is a lifestyle, and KoE is forever. What’s valuable to you? What’s the most precious possession in your life? Many will instantly think of material items. But for those of us humble enough to understand that materialism doesn’t last, the pursuit of knowledge will always reign—knowledge over Everything.
‘Time’ is a piece that I wrote after taking a class on modern Middle Eastern history. It’s centered on Arab disunity and the need for greater solidarity in the face of Western materialism. Being an American Muslim from Brooklyn but living in the Middle East, I’ve been exposed to different opinions on Western/Eastern relations. I feel it’s important to rectify our actions as collective perpetrators in the deterioration of world peace.
Time is priceless, forget our devices, forget the temptations and vices
Talkin’ bout ISIS, that’s a US creation
To hell with George Bush and his nation
Divided the ummah, neglected up the sunnah
We fell in love with the Dunya
Too many tyrants, migrants it is so mindless
Stop the political violence
Tanks and guns
and tyrants with funds
Makin’ these refugees run
People are dying, mother’s are crying
They ain’t got food for their sons
A Syrian man a martyr a father went down to the water to chuck his daughter
Cuz he knew when the bombs came down
That she would be better of drowned
Open your eyes, remove the disguise
Fallacies, fables and lies
Is ISIS religious? Do we promote bida3?
Should we be Sunni or Shia?
These are the questions that they hold against us
They will not break or bend us
We are Islam, y’all are my fam
Every last woman and man
Tamim is a G
Screw the blockade, he saw through the lies and the fake
Losin’ the game Saddam Hussein,
Baghdadi and Libyans under Gadaffi
Americas trippin and we on mission
To please Allah through submission
Forget their opinions
cuz they are just minions of jahal and evil dominions
We’ll live our lives for this creed, this lifestyle this deen
We’ll die for Islam Allahu alam Ameen.
