By Faheem Vadia
Bricks and mortar on a blessed land.
So strong and firm may you always stand.
Residing within you, the Dome of The Rock.
A place where people pray and flock.
A place where Allah’s blessings descend,
And many a mans weak prayers ascend.
A blessing for humanity and creatures alike,
It’s not the size of the guns, but the heart in the fight.
A witness to Prophets and miracles before,
A place of love and beauty amongst war.
Our hearts are with you O Palestine,
Home to a place so pure and Devine.
Forever blessed are your precious lands.
In supplication for you, we lift our hands.
Blossoming amongst the thorns,
You are but a desert rose…
