Muslim Lingo

Confounded by the difficulty of
Turning a long salaam into hi , how are you
And hoping for good recompenses instead
Of thank yous, and bless yous morph
Naturally into guide you and straighten
All of your affairs all because you sneezed

My Muslim lingo recedes hesitating to say
Al-hamdulillah the weather is great today or
InshaAllah I will , but you won't know
A language of desert people chosen for us
Our homes in gardens where this is our mothers tongue
On earth we are lost
In translation there is love
For humanity, for us

Indeed awkward is Muslim lingo used outside the mosque
But fallen is this here tongue from which lofty words shake
Your being if only you knew,
but prophets did come with messages true
Peace be upon them who were afraid too that
Messages would be lost in dictation and for us
In translation but the believers still came few by few

Just ask me what it means please
If not then you've looked but not seen
You've heard without taking heed
I want to tell you about this deen
So ask me, ask me now , ask me quick
Ask me please.

He was trembling with fear. At this stage, he came back to his wife Khadijah, and said, "Cover me, ... cover me." They covered him until he restored security. He apprised Khadijah of the incident of the cave and added that he was horrified. His wife tried to soothe him and reassured him saying, "Allâh will never disgrace you. You unite uterine relations; you bear the burden of the weak; you help the poor and the needy, you entertain the guests and endure hardships in the path of truthfulness."
The Sealed Nectar

Narrated Ibn Abbas: The Prophet used to move his tongue when the divine Inspiration was being revealed to him. (Sufyan, a subnarrator, demonstrated (how the Prophet used to move his lips) and added. "In order to memorize it." So Allah revealed: "Move not your tongue concerning (the Quran) to make haste therewith." (75.16)

If you want to know what the Arabic words mean you're gonna have to ask...
