Who said that only water rains down from the sky?
Who said that only Mercy descends from the sky?

Can you not see the bombs rain down from the sky?
Can you not see cruelty descending from the sky?

Who said that only birds fly in the sky?
Who said that only water makes up the clouds?

Can you not see these war planes in the sky?
Can you not see the smoke from the bombs?

Who said that the mother is always there for her children?
Who said that babies like to listen to new sounds?

Can you not, all around, see the motherless children?
Can you not see how terrified they are cause of these bomb sounds?

Who said that they don’t wanna go on a honeymoon?
Who said that the rivers are full and their colour is blue?

Can you not see them separate their bodies into meat and bone?
Can you not see them overflowing with their colour turned to red?

Who said that anyone has forgotten your crimes and this genocide?
Who said that the believers think there’s no way and no hope?

Can you not see that we are complaining to Allah about our plight?
Can you not see that the believers remember Muhammad (pbuh) in much difficult situations and how with the help of Allah he DID cope?
