Praise by Safe Adam – We Should Do It More

Safe Adam: Praise Download | MP3 (Amazon)

As the title track from the album, Praise had high expectations – and I wasn’t disappointed.

This song has one simple message – Praise Allah.

While the track has been kept simple lyrically, it subtly refers to key messages presented in the Quran and Hadith.

Let’s analyse!

Buy the song on Amazon.

Safe Adam – Praise Lyrics

I will praise ya in the morning – 1
to the sunset in the evening – 2
I will praise you
I will praise you

When i’m drowning under water – 3
In the deepest darkest ocean – 4
I will praise you
I will praise you

and I , I was born to praise you – 5
I was born to praise you
and ooo, I was born to praise you

Bismillah, Al-Rahman, Al-Rahim
Bismillah, Al-Rahman, Al-Rahim

The merciful creator – 6
Made our prophets walk on water – 7
I will praise you
I will praise you

In all of our misfortune
fall on you to rise above it
I will praise you
I will praise you

and I , I was born to praise you
I was born to praise you
and ooo, I was born to praise you

Bismillah, Al-Rahman, Al-Rahim
Bismillah, Al-Rahman, Al-Rahim

You are the creator
All that matters

You are the creator
All that matters

We seek Allah for Protection
You have my whole heart and affection
We worship you, and only you are perfection
The Quran is what we are tested on, our life is the lesson

Bismillah, Al-Rahman, Al-Rahim
Bismillah, Al-Rahman, Al-Rahim

I will praise you in the morning
To the sunset in the evening
I will praise you

Links to Quran /Hadith

1 I will praise ya in the morning

Indeed we are taught to pray first thing in the morning, known as the Fajr prayer.

“And in the hours before dawn they would ask forgiveness” (Quran 51:18)

 

2 To the sunset in the evening

Perform the prayers at the sun’s decline till the darkness of the night, and during the intensification of the (lights of) dawn; for the intensification of the (lights of) dawn is visible” (Quran 17:78)

 

3 When i’m drowning under water

These lyrics remind me of the verses on Pharaoh in the Quran. When he was downing in the sea he said:

“I believe that none has the right to be worshipped but He (Allah) in Whom the Children of Israel believe, and I am one of the Muslims (those who submit to Allaah’s Will)” (Yunus 10:90)

He converted to Islam and became Muslim, however Allah did not accept it.  Allah tells us that he will preserve his body as a lesson to mankind.

“So this day We shall deliver your body (out from the sea) that you may be a sign to those who come after you! And verily, many among mankind are heedless of Our Ayaat’ (Yunus 10:92).

The body of Pharaoh is still available to see at a museum in Egypt. Pharaoh asking for forgiveness while drowning (despite disbelieving) teaches us the importance of praising Allah in all situations.

 

4 In the deepest darkest ocean

The darkness of the ocean is actually called out in the Quran:

“Or [the unbelievers’ state] are like the darkness of a fathomless sea which is covered by waves above which are waves above which are clouds, layers of darkness, one upon the other. If he puts out his hand, he can scarcely see it. Those Allah gives no light to, they have no light” (Qur’an, 24:40)

 

5 and I , I was born to praise you

“We did not create the jinn and men except to worship us.” (Qur’an 51:56)

 

6 The merciful creator

One of the names of Allah is ‘Al-Rahim‘, which means ‘the merciful‘.

 

7 Made our prophets walk on water

The subject of Jesus (PBUH) walking on water is not mentioned in the Quran, however it is mentioned in the Bible:

“Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear” (Bible – Mathew 14:25-26)

We are taught that the original Bible was from Allah, but to read with caution as people have changed the book. The miracle of Jesus walking on water is not contradicting to the Islamic belief and may therefore be the truth. Allah knows best.

 

Final Thoughts

Safe has managed to convey deep meaning with a simple track. It’s no wonder he chose to name the album after this one.

I really enjoyed listening to this one.
