The Chosen One, by Maher Zain

In a time of darkness and greed
It is your light that we need
You came to teach us how to live
Muhammad Ya Rasul Allah

You were so caring and kind
Your soul was full of light
You are the best of mankind
Muhammad Khaira Khalqillah

Shallu ‘ala Rasulillah, Habibil Mustafa
Peace be upon The Messenger
The Chosen One

From luxury you turned away
And all night you would pray
Truthful in every word you say
Muhammad Yaa Rasul Allah

Your face was brighter than the sun
Your beauty equaled by none
You are Allah’s Chosen One
Muhammad Khaira Khalqillah

Shallu ‘ala Rasulillah, Habibil Mustafa
Peace be upon The Messenger
The Chosen One

I’ll try to follow your way
And do my best to live my life
As you taught me
I pray to be close to you
On that day and see you smile
When you see me

Shallu ‘ala Rasulillah, Habibil Mustafa
Peace be upon The Messenger
The Chosen One

Shallu ‘ala Rasulillah, Habibi Mustafa
Peace be upon The Messenger
The Chosen One

Lir-Ilir

Lir-ilir, ilir-ilir
tandure wus sumilir
Tak ijo royo-royo
Tak sengguh temanten anyar

Cah angon, cah angon
Penekno blimbing kuwi
Lunyu-lunyu penekno
Kanggo mbasuh dodotira

Dodotiro, dodotiro
kumitir bedhah ing pinggir
Dondomono, jumlotono
Kanggo seba mengko sore

Mumpung padhang rembulane
Mumpung jembar kalangane

Yo surak-o,,, surak hiyo,,

Malam-malam menyimak #kultwit nya ust Salim A. Fillah tentang Lagu ilir-ilir. Ini adalah lagu yang sering saya dengar karena suka dinyanyikan oleh ibu saya sewaktu kecil. Waktu itu saya sama sekali ga tau makna lagu ini. Hanya bisa mendengar senandungnya yang merdu dan liriknya yang mudah dihafal.

Yang saya baru tahu, ternyata lagu ini berhubungan dengan sunan Kalijaga. Lagu ini menceritakan dakwah salah satu walisongo ini pada saat berseminya dakwah Islam di abad XV. Ternyata makna lagunya pun sangat indah, jadi pengen nangis 😥 .
