A Chapter by Abdul Batin Osman Bey

about the word versus the practice


Allah said: have no divisions

Yet some days that’s all I hear

Pointing the finger saying they corrupted the science


Chanting your lineage as if it means something

What good is claiming your origin when your world is becoming dust


One love, one God, One Community

Instead of filling the cracks you allow the rain in

You can’t claim purity when your message is diluted

Hammer away at each other did you forget away you were brothers?


All praise is due to Yah not you

Talking about pillars and covenants but not living it

The youth sees through the jive and walks away

Gong down the road of jezebel highway


The messenger brought clear revelations

Why are you swapping it out for superstitions?

Adding Pharaohs mysticism with the teachings

Then you wonder why you lost your ground


When you pray come together

Put aside your differences

Learn from one another

What your ancient forefathers were you are today

Stop clinging to your quicksand ways


Kirkman, Mealy, Givens, come together

Shia, Sunni, Sufi, come together

Kirkman, Mealy, Givens, come together

Shia, Sunni, Sufi, come together
