I Have Two Hands

May 13, 2006

Asalaam 'Alaikum:

 

For some reason I was bitten by the creative bug today and came up with this little song (nasheed) that you can sing with your child and include in your "Allah Made Hands" lesson plan.  Sorry I can't provide any idea of how to sing it though – it is just in my head.  As a hint, each section rhymes exactly the same way.

 

Hopefully, though, you will be able to come up with something as I found it to rhyme quite nicely – and my kids get a great kick out of Mommy actually writing something for them.

 

 

I Have Two Hands 

I have two hands

To grasp and throw

My bouncy ball to you

 

We play together happily

And Allah I must thank you.

 

Two hands to write

Two hands to hold

Two hands to climb a tree

 

Allah you made

These hands for me

And I use them thankfully.

 

I have two hands

To cut and paste

To make a gift for you

 

I can make so many things

And Allah I must thank you.

 

Two hands to write

Two hands to hold

Two hands to climb a tree

 

Allah you made

These hands for me

And I use them thankfully.

 

I have two hands

To help you up

When you do fall down.

 

We help each other when we can

So Allah I must thank you.

 

Two hands to write

Two hands to hold

Two hands to climb a tree

 

Allah you made

These hands for me

And I use them thankfully.

    Assalamu alaykum

    Masha Allah, very beautiful. Btw what is the name of your song with Zain Bikha so that I can look out for it?

    Asalaam ‘Alaikum:

    I’m not sure if they are intending to change the title of the song (I don’t believe so). It was originally submitted as “Lay Down Your Head.”

    It is a Muslim child’s lullaby.

    as salaamu `alaykum…

    LOVELY!!!! Ma shaa Allah. So looking for the Zain Bhika CD… btw, our kids are about the same age. Would your child be interested in a pal for occasional correspondence?

    Asalaam ‘Alaikum Iman:

    The CD has not been produced yet – they said some time this year (hopefully soon). I haven’t tried to bother them about it – but have already signed a contract last year.

    I think the kids would love that – let me know more about it.

    Jazak Allah Khair,
