Memories :)

It's a well known fact that sights, sounds, smells, anything really (even a whiff of a certain perfume) has the ability to trigger one's neurons and retrieve a portion of memory that you may have thought you remembered.

But the human brain (and heart!) are both amazing things. Layers upon layers of complexities, we are only just beginning to grasp now. Here are some nasheeds which bring a smile on the face, a lil jig of the heart, a lil sniff of nostalgia, a certain train of thought, a handful of close friends' gatherings, some lunches, a trip which can never be forgotten, unforgettable car rides, including GoKart, sea view and hawksbay, sand and its muddiness, gravel and its hardness, and sights and sounds associated closely with all of them, and more.

Uff, I'm in love with the video.. :$. And by the way: here is a note from Zain Bhika Studio which I'm thinking is useful to post here :P.. Just to re-confirm once again, "First We Need The Love" contains no musical instruments, not even drums. All sounds that you hear are generated using voice and vocal beats, all done live in studio. The song has over 100 tracks of vocals combined to give it this unique sound. We really hope this clears things up. Sincerely, Zain Bhikha Studios

This last one is the one whose lyrics I am posting below. I think this is what we women should aim for, should keep as the yardstick - it's one HUGE yardstick, but maybe we can be a fraction of this .. in the future, Insha Allah. Contemplate :) - the first time I heard it, my eyes couldn't remain dry.


He stepped inside his home, and He was overwhelmed with fear
An angel came with words from God, things were still unclear
Saying read - read, but he could not read,
Amazing words he heard
A trembling deep inside his heart, confused by what had occurred

And there was only one who could comfort him
And help him see the light
To ease his fears, to reassure It was Khadijah, his wife...
He said Zamilooni, Zamilooni, Dathirooni, Dathirooni,
A mighty task has come before me... I need you here with me...by my side...

She was a woman of nobility, successful in all her trade
Many wealthy men had asked for her, she had turned them all away
But when she saw Muhammad, a shining moon, may peace be on his soul
He was a light for her -- so right for her -- her life will now be whole

But she had never seen him so distressed, as he was there that day
She would comfort him, and hold him tight, and chase his doubts away
He said Zamilooni, Zamilooni, Dathirooni, Dathirooni, A mighty task has come before me... I need you here with me...by my side...

We look for stories of love, in places dark and cold
When we have a guiding light, for the whole world to behold
But were so selfish in our ways, and to the ones we hold so close
Our own pleasure and happiness is what we value most

But she sacrificed all her wealth and everything she had
and he honoured her and gave her faith, when the times were bad, when times were bad

Now years have passed, times had changed, since Khadijah breathed her last.
and the message of the one true God was spreading far and vast
But then he came across some jewellery, that Khadijah once had worn
His eyes began to swell with tears, his heart again began to mourn
Cause she was there for him, when times were rough, and his enemies were cruel
Was the first Believer, so keen and eager, to comfort Al-Rasool
when He said: Zamilooni, Zamilooni Dathirooni, Dathirooni A mighty task has come before me... I need you here with me...by my side...
