Every day I see self-degradation,
Disguised as liberation,
People boldly displaying their bodies,
Sometimes to the extent of complete nakedness.
False beliefs of freedom,
People disiullusioned and deceived,
They look at us and they condemn,
Yet real truth and purity they have not perceived.
It seems to me that they’re the ones who are truly trapped,
I wonder if they have self-respect,
Deceived into believing in individual free will,
Yet dominated and driven in ways so subtle.
I’ll rather cover myself and maintain respect,
I do not ever want to be like them,
Let them look at us and dissect,
Trying to find ways to criticise and condemn.
Islam is my religion, my faith...my life,
It will never degrade me, it will only uplift,
Deception and illusion is clearly rife,
But Islam will continue to keep us adrift!
