Small Deeds [LYRICS]
Ever been on a drive? Inside in your ride
And your looking through the glass, see a car on the side
The engine’s broken and the car is smoking
And the dude is shaking cause the heat is baking
Or this cat’s (guy) gotta flat, and the spare’s all whack
No jack in the back, and no clue where he’s at
There ain’t no real rush, but you roll right by
Not even asking the guy if he needs a supply
He might be alright, and to pass ain’t a sin
But within you feel bad the state that he’s in
How hard would it been, just to ask “you ok”?
That might be the deed that you need to succeed
That might be the deed that will so please Allah
That your forgiven the sinning you did when you was living
It’s a small little thing, that can cling and just ring
And will bring the blessing from Allah Who’s the King
We pass on the deeds cause they seem all small
But it might be the deed that’s the best of them all
Mad when see all the passes I took
On these small little deeds I just overlook

Chorus: I just can’t believe
Small little deeds that I overlook, can you see?
Little deeds that I overlook, and you read
I read about it in my holy book, it says
Small deeds never overlook

Picking up trash on the path in a flash
Taking glass from the grass, as you pass to your class
A smile goes a mile and is sure worthwhile
When a brother’s hostile, and has been for awhile
Put a dollar every day in the sadaqah (charity)
It may be small but you do it for the baraka (blessing)
I know you’re saving for the Polo and the Nautica
A poor student but you do it just to please Allah
Things like praying for an ailing brother, under the weather
Obeying yo your lovely mother, it’s for the better
Stay and help your baby brother, put on a sweater
Even saying good to one another when you’re together
Advice to another sister about a mister
Your wife always go and kiss her, tell her you miss her
At night do quiet dikhr (mentioning God), and pray the witr
Invite a guy who wants to bicker, to share a snicker
Grand plans expand in our small little hands
But we overlook demands that just seem like strands
We get jammed on exams, cause we skip the small things
Small baby deeds come, bring the blessings!

I Am Near (Official Video)


The internationally recognized Muslim Hip Hop group Native Deen released a brand new music video. This action-packed video portrays Muslims as everyday citizens struggling with common issues such as unemployment, youth crime and family issues. The song “I Am Near” begs the listener to keep in touch with God during hard times and that God listens to us when we call to Him in need.

Not Afraid to stand Alone


A new track from Native deen. (Final edition)
* Added Lyrics:
I am not afraid to stand alone
I am not afraid to stand alone
If Allah is by my side
I am not afraid to stand alone
Everything is gonna be alright
I am not afraid to stand alone
Going keep my head up high

I am not afraid to stand alone
If Allah is by my side
Everything is going be alright
Going to keep my head up high

Single mother raising her children
And Now she’s a Muslim
Started praying and wearing a headscarf
It Was a healing for her heart

Struggling with no one to lean on
But with prayer she would be strong
Had a job but then she was laid off
Got a better education and it paid off

She was called for a job that she dreamed of
Close by, great pay -she was in love —
They brought her in — told her shes the 1 pick
You got the job, but you gotta lose the outfit”

It’s a tough position that you put me in
Cause look at my condition, and my two children
But I’ll continue looking for a job again
Cause my faith and my religion I will never bend

I am not afraid to stand alone
I am not afraid to stand alone
If Allah is by my side
I am not afraid to stand alone
Everything is gonna be alright
I am not afraid to stand alone
Going keep my head up high

I am not afraid to stand alone
If Allah is by my side
Everything is going be alright
Going to keep my head up high

Peer pressure, they were insisting
And I was resisting
Some days…. I felt I would give in
Just wanted to fit in

I know…..when I’m praying and fasting’
They be teasing and laughing
So I called to my Lord for the power
For the strength every day, every hour…

one day there’s a new Muslim teacher
Single mom and the people respect her
Just seeing…. her strength I get stronger
They can break my will no longer

You don’t see me sweatin’ when they’re jokes cracking
Never see me cussing’ with my pants saggin’
I aint never running Yo Im still standing,
sorry I aint jumping on your band wagon, cause…

I am not afraid to stand alone
I am not afraid to stand alone
If Allah is by my side
I am not afraid to stand alone
Everything is gonna be alright
I am not afraid to stand alone
Going keep my head up high

I am not afraid to stand alone
If Allah is by my side
Everything is going be alright
Going to keep my head up high

Now, I’m a tough one, who can bear their blows
The rest play dumb, they don’t dare say no
Scared of being shunned, but its clear they know
I aint never gonna run, I aint scared no more….

Man, these sisters be resolute
Never stressed when the rest say they wasn’t cute
And the get the respect of the other youth
Come best with the dress yo and thats the truth

These sisters are strong gonna hand it down
So me Im a brotha gotta stand my ground
No fear, Im tough Im the man in town
Peer pressure no more, its my planet now

Others may fall, but Im hold my own
With Allahs help I’ll be strong as stone
And I’ll be the one to let Al Islam be shown
Cause I am not afraid yo to stand alone

I am not afraid to stand alone
I am not afraid to stand alone
If Allah is by my side
I am not afraid to stand alone
Everything is gonna be alright
I am not afraid to stand alone
Going keep my head up high

I am not afraid to stand alone
If Allah is by my side
Everything is going be alright
Going to keep my head up high
