Another huge track from the album. Invincible is different, fresh, uplifting and powerful.

Invincible teaches us to have appreciation for everything we have in life, regardless of who we are. When listening to this song, I found myself reflecting over the lyrics and noticed many links to Islamic text.

Safe Adam – Invincible Lyrics

I am whatever I will be
I don’t need to be what you need me to be
I thank God for all he’s done for me – 1
You give me so much life
And you make me feel

Invincible, Invincible
You’re the one that gives us power from above – 2
Invincible
You are the love when no one near is close to us – 3
Alhamdulillah
Alhamdulillah

You can be whatever you want to be
Never listen to those who kill your dreams
You have Allah and he will set you free
He will put it right, and make you feel

Invincible, Invincible
You’re the one that gives us power from above
Invincible
You are the love when noone near is close to us

If there’s one thing I know
It’s that seasons come and go – 4
But Allah will keep you warm
And break through the hearts of stone – 5
He can make you

Invincible, Invincible
You’re the one that gives us power from above
Invincible
You are the love when noone near is close to us
Alhamdulillah
Alhamdulillah
Alhamdulillah

Allah’s love has no limits – 6
Allah’s love has no boundaries
For every raindrop that falls
For every ray of sunshine
For everything is under his control – 7
You cannot see Allah – 8
You cannot touch Allah
But you can feel Allah
He is there in every tear that falls
In every smile that shows
Allah is all around us
I am whatever I may be
But Allah has already planned my destiny – 9

I am whatever I will be
Alhamdulillah
I am whatever I will be
Alhamdulillah

Links to Quran / Hadith

Links to the Quran and hadith have been numbered above (in purple) and presented below.

 

I thank God for all he’s done for me

We are taught to be thankful to Allah in Surah Baqarah:

“… and be grateful to Allah, if it is Him you worship” (Al-Baqarah 2:172)

Furthermore we are taught that being thankful to Allah is for our benefit alone, and will not change Allah in any way:

“And whoever is grateful, he is only grateful for the benefit of his own self” (Luqman 31:12)

 

2 You’re the one that gives us power from above

“Say: “O Allah! Lord of Power (and Rule) thou givest Power to whom Thou pleasest and Thou strippest off power from whom Thou pleasest thou enduest with honor whom thou pleasest and thou bringest low whom Thou pleasest; in Thy hand is all Good. Verily over all things thou hast power” (Quran 3:26)

 

3 You are the love when no-one near is close to us

Only in remembrance of Allah (swt) will your heart find peace (Quran 13:28)

 

Is that seasons come and go

This verse reminds me of Allah’s comments on seasons in the Quran.

Each year we see plants and leaves thriving through the summer and dying in by the winter. Once the rain falls the leaves re-grow, and thus the dead has been brought back to life. This is a reminder that the very same thing will happen to us on the day of judgement. We should reflect on the cycle of seasons with deep thought.

“You see the earth dry and barren and then no sooner than We send down water upon it, it begins to quiver and swell and brings forth every kind of beauteous vegetation. All this is because Allah, He is the Truth, and because He resurrects the dead, and because He has power over everything” (Quran 50:9-11)

“It is Allah Who sends forth winds which then set the clouds in motion, which We drive to some dead land giving a fresh life to earth after it had become dead. Such will be the resurrection of the dead (Quran 35:9)

 

And break through the hearts of stone

Allah compares hearts to stones in the Quran. Someone with a hard heart is said to be far from the remembrance of Allah.

“Then, after that, your hearts were hardened and became as stones or even worse in hardness. And indeed, there are stones out of which rivers gush forth, and indeed, there are of them (stones) which split asunder so that water flows from them, and indeed, there are of them (stones) which fall down for fear of Allah. And Allah is not unaware of what you do” (Quran 2:74)

A side note: The above verse speaks about stones containing water. Scientists have discovered that water is present in meteoroids, and may be an explanation as to how water got onto this Earth before life began. Watch this video for more.

 

6 Allah’s love has no limits

“Imam al-Tahawi (Allah have mercy on him) states, “He (Allah) is beyond having limits placed on Him, or being restricted, or having parts or limbs. Nor is He contained by the six directions like all the created things.”” (Al-Aqida al-Tahawiyya, Point: 38)

 

7 For everything is under his control

“GOD is the Creator of all things, and He is in full control of all things” (Quran 39:62)

 

You cannot see Allah

Prophet Moses asked to see Allah and was made to look at a mountain. When looking at the mountain he fell unconscious:

“And when Musa (Moses) came at the time and place appointed by Us, and his Lord spoke to him, he said: “O my Lord! Show me (Yourself), that I may look upon You.” Allah said: “You cannot see Me, but look upon the mountain if it stands still in its place then you shall see Me.” So when his Lord appeared to the mountain, He made it collapse to dust, and Musa (Moses) fell down unconscious. Then when he recovered his senses he said: “Glory be to You, I turn to You in repentance and I am the first of the believers.”” (Quran 7:143)

 

9 But Allah has already planned my destiny

Allah has already planned our lives:

“Say: “Nothing shall ever happen to us except what Allah has ordained for us. He is our Mawla (protector).” And in Allah let the believers put their trust”” (Quran 9:51)

 

Final Thoughts

This is a well-produced nasheed with beautiful vocals.

The inclusion of spoken word is not something often heard in Safe Adam’s songs, he has tried something new and it worked!

It’s amazing to think that such a simple track can contain so much meaning, and allow for much reflection.
