Between my shadow and my soul

Invitations OR Mode over Native D!!


I want to savour the high and exhaustion of this experience.


At the Yusuf Estes "Cool Islam" workshop this morning our group "Mode" consisting of mainly high school students with a smattering of uni die-hards like meself, had to come up with a rap song or nursery rhyme representing an Islamic value. We had like twenty minutes and this is what we came up with. It's a combination of nursery rhyme and rap song with a unique rhythm. Huge shout out of credit to Mode- Azeezah, Zaynab, Zeenat, Nazrana, Fatima, Maymoonah, Lubnaa, Nadia, Mariam and moi.



RHYME
Aysha Hijabi sat on the wall

Along came Yusuf, handsome and tall



RAP
He looked in her diretion, with passion & affection\

With the wink of an eye

smooth and fly

Ayesha got shy



RHYME
Shining like the sun

He said, hun

let's have some fun



RAP
Aysha, go with the flow and flirt with Joe,

Play it cool and don't look like a fool


No. Aysha that's not right

Think of it in Allah's sight


M to the O tothe D to the E

Modesty is key, don't you see?


To the S, T, Y

Taqwa makes you fly



RHYME
Wa laa taqrabuz zinna

It doesn't take u far,

Love is only for Allah



Patience and Sabr, I can have roses in my Kabr,

Allah rewards u for waiting, so forget about dating


The time wil come,

Allah will send you the one


M to the O tothe D to the E
Modesty is key, don't you see?

To the S, T, Y
Taqwa makes you fly


There are some feelings that never go away.

The high I get from involvement is like that for me.
