Strong (Noor)

Strong Performed by: Noor Written by: Tarik I admire, dear sister Your struggle to surrender To give up what you want, for what He wants And I laude you, my sister For your refusal to surrender Not to let the things they say turn you away And so I'll say Stand up strong, cuz you belong In the highest ranks of modesty Stand up strong, cuz all along You define the meaning of honesty For your courage, under pressure For the strength that carries you Through the day, despite the stares Of those who pretend, that they care Their eyes judge you And they question you If only they knew The things you do About respect, about value About the freedom to be you To speak your mind, through and through Always true So stand up strong, cuz you belong In the highest ranks of modesty Stand up strong, cuz all along You define the meaning of honesty Why can't they see, that what you are, Is beautiful, inside and out Why don't they know, that it's your deen That makes you strong, and sets you free Why can't they see, that what you are Is beautiful Why don't they know, that it's your deen That makes you strong, and sets you free So my sister I pray, You'll find, your way And for a special day When you can say I'll stand up strong, cuz I belong In the highest ranks of modesty I'll stand up strong, cuz all along I define the meaning of honesty
