One, Two, Three, Four

ImageBrother Yahya Naqvi on the choices one makes in life. Will you choose the right path towards Allah [swt]?Image

 

 

 

 

 

One, two, three, four
Choose a door
Feel free to explore
Nothing holds you back
Not anymore

One explains from where you come
The second explains what you'll become
The third on how it all began
The last on how it will all end

Life is not a complicated plot
It's what you make of what you've got

Destination ahead, pedal under your feet
The spirit's desire to feel complete

Connected to a source, like the flower to the sun
In time of need, to the one we will run

Those that leave us do not depart
Merely returning, for it ends where it starts

One, two, three, four
Choose a door
Feel free to explore
Nothing holds you back
Not anymore

One will show the source of disruption
The second holds the world's corruption
The third will show the pending wrath
The last guides you to the right path

Greedy for riches, but unwilling to share
In need of help, but neglecting prayer

Those in high positions fail and mislead
Coward commanders willing to retreat

No one is here to stay, no one can walk away
Sins are also weighed if you disobey

Worship with an ultimate trust in your Creator
No one else is worthy and no trust in greater
