Shukran Allah – Safe Adam

Safe Adam: Shukran Allah Download | MP3 (Amazon)

Safe Adam has teamed up with t-Series to bring you Shukran Allah, a popular Bollywood track.

The original Bollywood song has been sang many times, with different versions available on the web. For example, nasheed artist Nazeel Azmi did a version back in 2014.

Safe has applied a unique country-like sound to this song, creating a version that is truly his own. With an already popular hook, this track was set up to do well from the beginning.

So why has it been placed in the last position on the album?

One reason for this might be the mainstream nature of Safe’s work. He is targeting the entire Muslim world with his music, reaching out to countries such as Indonesia, Jordan and Nigeria. People from the sub-Indian continent are more likely to enjoy this specific track given the popularity of the original making it less mainstream – just a guess!

Let’s take a look at the lyrics while calling out any references to Quran and Hadith.

Safe Adam – Shukran Allah Lyrics

I started a journey
And i’m nowhere near the end
With every stumble
There’s a lesson to be learnt
And I got a message
And I want it to be heard – 1
With all the promises that life can lend

I got the world on my shoulders
But I don’t care
I got that faith in Allah
That’ll take me there
We got the world on our shoulders
But we don’t care
We have Allah in our hearts
And he’ll take us there

We’re moving mountains
We’re building the bridges – 2
When we fall down
We get up we got that vision
We’re moving mountains
We’re building bridges
When we fall down
We get up we got that vision

ShukranAllah, Wa Alhamdulillah – 3
ShukranAllah, Wa Alhamdulillah
ShukranAllah, Wa Alhamdulillah
ShukranAllah, Wa Alhamdulillah

Don’t loose inspiration
Don’t be hard on yourself
You’re one in a billion – 4
You motivate the ones you love
You got your own way
You’re finding places no-one finds
You right out the shadow
Now you’ll be just fine

I got the world on my shoulders
But I don’t care
I got that faith in Allah
That’ll take me there
We got the world on our shoulders
But we don’t care
We have Allah in our hearts
And he’ll take us there

We’re moving mountains
We’re building the bridges
When we fall down
We get up we got that vision
We’re moving mountains
We’re building bridges
When we fall down
We get up we got that vision

ShukranAllah, Wa Alhamdulillah
ShukranAllah, Wa Alhamdulillah
ShukranAllah, Wa Alhamdulillah
ShukranAllah, Wa Alhamdulillah

Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah

ShukranAllah, Wa Alhamdulillah
ShukranAllah, Wa Alhamdulillah
ShukranAllah, Wa Alhamdulillah
ShukranAllah, Wa Alhamdulillah

Alhamdulillah yea

I started a journey
And i’m nowhere near the end.

Links to Quran / Hadith

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

1 And I got a message, And I want it to be heard

In the final sermon, the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) told us to spread the message to every corner of the globe

“…All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and those to others again; and may the last ones understand my words better than those who listen to me directly. Be my witness, O Allah, that I have conveyed your message to your people…” (Al-Bukhari, Hadith 1623, 1626, 6361)

We are also taught in Surah Al-Asr that all of mankind are at loss, except those who call to the truth amongst other things:

“By time, Indeed, mankind is in loss, Except for those who have believed and done righteous deeds and advised each other to truth and advised each other to patience” (Quran 103:1-3)

 

We’re building the bridges

“Say: “O People of the Book! come to common terms as between us and you: That we worship none but Allah; that we associate no partners with him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than Allah.” If then they turn back, say ye: “Bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims (bowing to Allah’s Will)” (Quran 3:64)

 

3 Shukran Allah, Wallah Alhamdulillah

This translates to “thank you Allah, Allah be praised”. We are taught to praise Allah in the Quran:

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

 

4 You’re one in a billion

In fact we are all unique. There is some evidence to suggest that every human being has a unique fingerprint (Journal of Enam Medical College). This may be why Allah emphasises the fingers when speaking about life after death:

“Does man think that WE Cannot assemble his bones? Nay, WE are able to put Together in perfect order The very tips of his fingers.” (Quran 75:3-4)

 

Final Thoughts

If you’re a fan of the original you will most likely love this track.

I personally prefer some of the other versions of this song, however that’s not to take away from this track. Great vocals and guitar!
