Fortunate is he
Who remembers Allah abundantly
Worldly distractions cannot mildly sway
His thoughts of Allah and Judgment Day

Righteous is he
Who bows to one he cannot see
Whose deeds do not spring without Bismillah
Fulfilling his tasks with perfect Taqwa

Devout is he
Who supplicates to Allah intensively
Whose heart is merciful, tender and kind
His gaze on life after, this world behind

Prosperous is he
Who spends his wealth on the poor and needy
Who speaks a kind word to kin and neighbour
Ever-grateful for Allah’s favors

Guided is he
Who prays Salaat with punctuality
Early morning, Tahajjud he prays
For Allah’s pleasure and nearness he craves

God fearing is he
Who contemplates death early
Who starts as he sees his demise
And tears fall over wasted sacrifice

Blessed is he
Who sings Allah’s praises fervently
Blessed be all of Allah’s slaves
Allah’s mercy be with them always


Satu lagi lirik lagu dari Zain Bhikha yang bertajuk 'Fortunate is he'. Setiap kali aku mendengarnya, aku tersenyum, sedih pun ada.  Setiap ungkapan dari lirik tersebut terus menyerap masuk ke dalam hati. Mungkin melalui lirik nampak biasa, tetapi cuba dengar dan hayati, pasti anda faham maksud saya. Haaa..kenapa hati ini tiba-tiba dupdapdupdap...
