Walking Together ©
(The Brotherhood of Men)
The breath of God lives through the Hajj -
From the four corners of the world
The Love of God is no mirage;
The dream of going to Mecca.
They come to pray - connect to God...
They must gather and reach their shrine;
A sea of men in the wisdom -
Deep in their heart Allah will shine.
Barefooted souls in the desert
Forgetting greed, everyday life;
The faith in God does not divert -
The pilgrimage of a lifetime.
Under the cloth they rub shoulders;
King and farmer, one sole shelter...
The wealth of God unites brothers -
The veil of war does not deter.
On the way, five daily prayers,
A voyage in humility...
The ultimate expression
Of Muslim solidarity.
From London or America,
They may be torn by loyalties -
Their belief leads them to Mecca...
To cleanse their souls, no boundaries.
