A Birthday Ditty for Um Omar


To be sung to the tune of Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band 😉
.

It was forty years ago today,
God shone a little light that day
She’s been going in and out of fashion
But she’s guaranteed to share her passion.
So may I introduce to you
The gal you’ve known for all these years,
Um Omar, living out of her native land.

She’s Um Omar, living out of her native land,
We hope she will enjoy her day,
She’s Um Omar just a stone’s throw from the Promised Land,
Sit back and take some time to play.
Um Omar’s translating, Um Omar’s ever prostrating (ameen!).
Um Omar’s cultivating in her garden land.

It’s wonderful that she’s here,
It’s certainly a thrill.
She’s such a lovely optimist,
We’d like to go to Syria with her,
We’d love to bring her back.

I don’t really want to stop the show,
But I thought that you might like to know,
That the singer’s going to sing a song,
And he wants you all to sing along.
So let me introduce to you
The one and only Um Omar
who is always willing to take a stand!
.

God bless, and may you have many great years to come, Um Omar!

  1. This is great! Love it! (Has she seen it yet?)

  2. I posted it on her facebook, but I don’t know whether she saw it or not.

  3. AHHHHHH! SubhanAllah, I finally remembered to come and see! Allah yatik alafia! I am really touched that you would take the time to do that for me! Big hugs! MashAllah. You are very special, Joyce! May Allah reward you!

  4. Thanks, Um Omar. You could not have picked a better day to read and comment. You, too, are special and that’s why I did it!
