Allahu Akbar

This is a phrase I hold dear.

Allahu Akbar.

Allah is Greater.  Greater than what?

Greater than my troubles.

Greater than my problems.

Greater than those who would hate me because of my religion.

Allahu Akbar.

The phrase is mine and I will not relinquish it.

Allahu Akbar.

Not mindless slogan, chanted by those bent on doing violence.

Allahu Akbar

Its dhikr, remembrance, a constant reminder of my place in the world and the One to whom everything is owed:

Allah

Who is greater than everything
