Legacy

 

There’s no day like yours Hussain

When History remembers your name

Legacy, This is your legacy

 

1. With every drop of your blood oh Hussain 

You woke up millions that will shout your name 

Our mothers raised us with this only aim 

To spread your mission from cradle to grave 

And so we all stand up as one 

Resilient to all threats that come 

Legacy, This is your legacy

 

There’s no day like yours Hussain

When History remembers your name

Legacy, This is your legacy

 

2. You taught to be strong throughout our lives 

To face oppression by being dignified 

To stare at death in the face with a smile 

To sacrifice it all for the divine 

They thought it was done when you died 

But through death you are more alive 

Legacy, This is your legacy

 

There’s no day like yours Hussain

When History remembers your name

Legacy, This is your legacy

 

3. Angels were waiting for just one command 

Millions would have come to that very land 

Instead you lay down on the burning sand  

You knew that this was what Allah had planned 

You selflessly laid down your life 

Ensuring religion survived 

Legacy, This is your legacy

 

There’s no day like yours Hussain

When History remembers your name

Legacy, This is your legacy

 

4. throughout our lives this is what we've been taught 

the pen is more mightier than the sword 

but oh Hussain this is what you have shown 

both were achieved by just one man alone 

your blood flowing when you were slain 

had written this legendary tale 

Legacy, This is your legacy

 

There’s no day like yours Hussain

When History remembers your name

Legacy, This is your legacy

 

5. You called out to us on top of a spear 

And taught us to live without any fear  

If you will keep your intentions sincere 

Whenever you need me I will be near 

When no one is by our side 

We don't care because you're our guide 

Legacy, This is your legacy

 

There’s no day like yours Hussain

When History remembers your name

Legacy, This is your legacy

 

6. Every emotion was felt on that day 

Hunger and thirst with bereavement and pain 

seventy two loved ones all being slain 

You knew that your tents would soon be aflame 

And yet you remained calm within 

To prove to the world how to win 

Legacy, This is your legacy

 

There’s no day like yours Hussain

When History remembers your name

Legacy, This is your legacy

 

7. They tried to hide your death from history 

On barren land so that no-one would see 

But it's been promised that your name will be 

Heard from the skies for all eternity 

To prove your name will never die 

Today millions visit your shrine 

Legacy, This is your legacy

 

There’s no day like yours Hussain

When History remembers your name

Legacy, This is your legacy

 

8. They say the greatest of all legacies 

Is not in the tangible that you leave 

Rather it's based on personality 

Your character and the life that you lead 

We say you’re the greatest because 

There is no example like yours 

Legacy, This is your legacy

 

There’s no day like yours Hussain

When History remembers your name

Legacy, This is your legacy
