Jemal

This song is based on a traditional du’a (prayer) in Islam that seeks peace for all things.

Allah’im lütfet ki gittigmiz her yere baris gotürelim
Bölücü degil bagdastirici birlestirici olabilelim
Nefret olan yere sevgi, yaralanma olan yere affedicilik
Kusku olan yere inanç, ümitsizlik olan yere ümit

Karanlik olan yere aydinlik ve üzüntü olan yere
Sevinç satici olmayi bize lütfet yarabbi
Kusurlari gören degil, kusuru örtenlerden
Teselli arayanlardan degil teselli edenlerden

Anlayis bekleyenlerden degil, anlayis gösterenlerden
Yanliz sevilmeyi isteyenlerden degil
Sevenlerden olmamiza yardim et
Yagmur gibi hiç bir sey ayirt etmeyip

Aktigi her yere canlilik bahsedenlerden
Günes gibi hiç bir sey ayirt etmeyip
Isigiyla tüm varliklari aydinlatanlardan
Toprak gibi hersey üstüne bastigi halde

Hiç bir seyini esirgemeyip
Nimetlerini herkese verenlerden olmayi bize lutfet
Alan degil, veren ellerin
Affedici oldugu için affedilenlerin

Hak ile dogan hak ile yasayan
Hak ile ölenlerin ve sonsuz yasam da yeniden doganlarin
Safina katilmayi bize nasip eyle

Amin

This is the rough translation of the prayer from Turkish (provided kindly by Jamil Ahmad):

My God, grant that we may sow peace wherever we go.
Let us be reconcilers and unifiers, not sowers of dissent.
Allow us to disseminate love where there is hate,
forgiveness where there is injury,
faith where there is doubt,
hope where there is despair,
light where there is darkness,
and joy where there is sorrow.

Help us to be not of those who see the failings of others,
but of those who hide them;
not of those who seek consolation,
but those who console;
not of those who wish to be understood,
but those who understand;
not of those who crave to be loved,
but those who love.

Grant that we may become like the rain,
which bestows life without discrimination wherever it flows;
like the sun, which enlightens all beings everywhere without distinction;
like the earth which, though everything steps on it,
withholds nothing and bestows its fruits on everyone;
like the night, which hides all shames from view.

Grant us the destiny to join the ranks of
those who give rather than receive,
those who are forgiven because they forgive,
those who are born in Truth, live in Truth, die in Truth;
and those who are born again in eternal life.

Amen.
