Take My Hand, Be With Me
Gather 'round little children, listen close, lend an ear,
The month of Quran is upon us, it is soon, it is near.
The way that I have been; the things that I do,
I will work to be better, take my hand, join in too.
Do you see the salat, the fasting and the charity?
It will increase, it will be better, take my hand, be with me.
The food I'll leave off, the sleep that I'll miss,
The nights spent in prayer; there is little better than this.
We've only thirty days and then the blessed month will leave,
Gather 'round little children, take my hand, walk with me,
There are blessings to be sought, hand in hand, let us see.
Let us seek out the hungry and fill their stomachs with delight,
Then, together let us stand in taraweeh every night.
Gather 'round little children, form a line, pray with me,
Let us count down the days and seek the Night of Decree.
Hasten little children; there is no time to delay,
The time we have is short and many men have passed this way.
Side by side, let us see how many good deeds we can do.
Gather 'round little children, the competition will soon begin,
Help your parents, help your neighbour, and don't forget - help your friend.
Remember this month is blessed, so a lot of Quran read therein,
Increase your good deeds little children, before you know it, the month will end.
Gather 'round little children, for indeed you are blessed,
Your Lord has chosen for you Islam, and you are different from the rest.
You worship Him Alone and you do this upon Tawheed,
He fulfills your wants and your desires and He Alone provides your needs.
Our Lord has given us this month in which He grants rewards without boundaries,
Work your hardest in this month, and may Allah grant you ease.
