This track, is based on a centuries old supplication (Dua Kumayl), taught by Ali Ibn Abi Talib to Kumayl Ibn Ziyad, a confidant amongst the companions of Ali Ibn Abi Talib. This sublime Du’a was first heard from the beautiful, though anguished, voice of Ali. The song’s lyrics come from the worshipper’s point of view as he, in utter humility, entreats Allah, to deal with him not in accordance with what he deserves as a sinner, but in compatibility with Allah’s own high attributes as Forgiver, Merciful and Cherisher of His bondman and lead him to the path of piety and righteousness.
The video was filmed in the fjords and quiet mountain plateaus of Geiranger, Norway which truly highlight its serene qualities.
