Not In My Name – Safe Adam

Safe Adam: Not In My Name Download | MP3 (Amazon)

Wow!

I have heard many songs, poems and speeches teaching us that terrorism has not place in Islam – but this one stands out.

Safe Adam has again provided us with innovative delivery and a fresh track.

When listening to the chorus, I could really feel the passion in his voice. The song starts out flat but quickly builds, taking the listener to another dimension.

Safe was lucky enough to perform this song live on BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) TV. I feel he has been successful in conveying the feelings of many Muslims around the world through this empowering track.

For first time visitors to this site my format is simple. I review Nasheeds and call out references between the lyrics and Quran/Hadith. Before I begin I encourage you to buy this track. You can listen to a preview on Amazon and purchase directly from the site.

Let’s now go through the lyrics, calling out references to Quran and Hadith.

Safe Adam – Not In My Name Lyrics

When I walk i’m loosing ground
I see people but I hear no sound
I feel i’m chasing something
That can’t be found

It’s a battle with our mind
Sensless people with no heart
I was taught to pray and love – 1
No anger in my heart – 2

Not in my name
Not in my name
Not in my name, no
Not in my name

I am a teacher in the Arts
I am a doctor saving lives
I am your neighbour next to your house
I am your friend

Trouble people using our name – 3
It’s causing Muslims so much pain
We are one people one race
As we get older the less we can take

Not in my name
Not in my name
Not in my name, no
Not in my name, no
Not in my name

We pray for everyone around the world
To listen to the call of our thoughts
And they don’t represent an inch of us
False representation

Let’s pray for everyone around the world
To listen to the call of our thoughts
And they don’t represent an inch of us
A false representation

Not in my name
Not in my name
Not in my name, no
Not in my name

Not in my name
Not in my name
Not in my name, no
Not in my name

Links to Quran / Hadith

1 I was taught to pray and love

There are many verses in the Quran about both prayer and kindness.

Establish prayer, and be mindful of Him. To Him you will all be gathered together” (Quran 6:72)

“God does not forbid you from being good to those who have not fought you in the religion or driven you from your homes, or from being just towards them. God loves those who are just.” (Quran Surat al-Mumtahana, 8)

 

No anger in my heart

Anger can actually hold us back from entering the garden.

“Abu’l-Darda said: I said, O Messenger of Allah, tell me of a deed which will earn me admission to al-Jannah (Paradise). He said, “Do not get angry, and Paradise will be yours.”” (Saheeh at-Targheeb at-Tarheeb, #2749)

 

Trouble people using our name

The prophet (PBUH) gave us some signs of the day of judgement. One of them is that fighting will increase. It is sad to see it happening, but also acts as a reminder to ourselves that the last day may be near. The prophet said:

“The Hour will come when violence, bloodshed, and anarchy become common (Al-Muttaqi Al-Hindi, Muntakhab Kanzul Ummaal)

“The Harj (will increase).” They asked, “What is the Harj?” He replied, “(It is) killing, (it is) murdering.”(Bukhari)

“Great cities will be ruined and it will be as if they had not existed the day before” (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir al-Zaman)

“A time will come when the killer will not know why he killed and the person who was killed will not know why he was killed (Muslim)

 

Final Thoughts

Amazing song! This track has certainly helped me to reflect.

The choice of lyrics combined with the passion in his voice has made this one of my favourite tracks from the album: Praise.

Like Safe says in the song: Let’s pray for everyone around the world.
