Prologue: One of my favorite Nasheed. Nasheed is about a man who in distress is turned away from the ‘doors’ of people and comes to ‘door of hope’ (to Allah in other words). It has a meaning we can ALL relate to.
The Door of Hope
I knocked on the Door of hope
while others slept
and I continued grieve to my
Lord (from) what I found…
And I said: “Oh my hope…
in every calamity
and The One I depend on…
to drive away my every distress.
I complain to You matters..
that You Already know
I have no strength
nor any patience to bear it
And I have extened my hands
in humiliation I stand!
Oh the best Oneto extend the hands to…
So do not return it (my hands) ..
oh Lord… fruitless (empty handed)
(Just) as the sea of Your generosity
can quench the thrist of anyone who desires.
