Zamilooni | زملوني
He stepped inside his home, 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 that He heard
A trembling deep inside His heart, confused by what had occurred
There was only one who could comfort Him
To help Him see the light
To ease His fears, to reassure
Was Khadija, His wife…
He said Zamilooni, Zamilooni
Dathirooni, Dathirooni
(Envelop me, Embrace me)
A mighty task has come before me…
I need you here with me…
By my side…By my side....By my side
She was a woman of nobility, successful in all Her trade
Many wealthy men had asked for Her, She 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
But She would comfort Him, and hold Him tight, and chase His doubts away
We look for stories of love, in places dark and cold
When we have a guiding light, for the whole world to behold
But we're so selfish in our ways, 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 honored Her, and gave Her faith
When the times were bad, when times were bad...
Now years have passed, times have changed, since Khadija breathed Her last
And the Message of the one true God, was spreading far and vast
But then He came across some jewellery, that Khadija had once worn
His eyes began to swell with tears, His heart began to mourn
Cause She was there for Him, when the times were rough, and His enemies were cruel
She was the first believer, so keen and eager, to comfort Al-Rasool

(O my Leader, send your salutations and blessings forever
Upon Your Beloved, the best of the whole of creation)
