The Chosen One (Lyrics & Music Video)

Maher Zain – The Chosen One | ماهر زين – المختار

This song and the video are inspired by Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. Maher Zain and Awakening Records felt they had to respond to the recent attacks on Prophet Muhammad through cartoons and Facebook. The result is this music video. It’s a small attempt at portraying the true character of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

In a time of darkness and greed
It is your light that we need
You came to teach us how to live
Muhmmad, ya Rasoola Allah

You were so caring and kind
Your soul was full of light
You are the best of mankind
Muhammad, khairu khalqi Allah

Sallou ‘ala Rasooli Allah
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, ya Rasoola Allah

Your face was brighter than the sun
Your beauty equalled by none
You are Allah’s Chosen One
Muhammad, khayru khalqi Allah


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

Today,I brought your musics to school,nobody recognized you.but suddenly one of my friends shouted I know him,when I was child,I heard his voice.but after I forgot him.
And we all know why did she forget you.its because of that you sing for truth.
Insha Allah when Muhammad(pbuh)see you,you see his smile.your sings never be the best for people.but they are absolutely the best for God.
