Music can be the bridge that connects one culture or one religion to another. We Believe is a collection of songs written to help build that bridge. I wanted Muslim families to sing the songs in celebration of their holidays and beliefs. I also wanted music teachers to have access to Muslim songs which they could include in their classes or holiday assemblies. The lyrics, lyric explanations and music only tracks are included with the CD to aid in doing just that. I hope everyone enjoys singing the songs as much as I enjoyed writing them. --Lisa Abdelsalam
"We Stand As One In Ramadan" talks about looking to the sky for the crescent moon when Ramadan and the fast begin. It also talks about looking to the stars and spreading the word at the end of Ramadan when the Eid holiday begins. The song expresses the feeling of peace Muslims have during this holy time. The song, "Ramadan Will Be Here Soon", talks about waiting for the fast to begin and searching for the crescent moon to begin the Eid.
The song, "Come With Me", talks about "one time in our lives we go" and "we drink the water our lives begin new" in Mecca. The song also talks about going up into the mountain "to the place where the prophet stood". The song, "I Wonder", talks about visiting the place where your religion began, going up into the mountain and bringing the new faith inside back home with you.
