Hamza Robertson was born in Lancashire in the North-West of England. Since school through college, he involved himself in music and the performing arts. He was a part of the local theatre workshop, where he wrote music and acted in plays. He took part in a variety of rock bands beyond college, playing a variety of instruments and writing music. He still produces his own unique pieces.


Through his early academic career, Hamza played the keyboard and performed vocals and as such played in several bands, later becoming lead singer, keyboard player and guitarist in a rock band he formed with his friends called 'Green'. Hamza has undertaken a series of solo performances. He studied Performing Arts Popular Music for three years in Hopwood hall college, Middletown, Manchester.


In working with Awakening, Hamza aims to take part in a new dynamics in calling to God, or 'dawah', in a new world, through producing songs with a positive message. Being a convert who embraced Islam three years ago, he feels that too many people know too little about Islam and the beauty of its essential values, values which bring about harmony between people, as opposed to discord.


Hamza believes that music, being a powerful source of energy, can be employed to influence people towards either good or bad. He feels there is too much 'negative music' in the world giving people the wrong message, and bringing about within them the desire to do things which are against their inherently pure nature, i.e. their 'fitrah'




The story behind this album all started in Hamza's local mosque in Manchester, when Nabeel, a good friend of Hamza's needed help with his project on Islamic education for schools, Hamza went to the studio and acted in some video footage which would be shown to the children, it was then that Hamza mentioned he was a musician and that he would like to meet Sami Yusuf, so Nabeel, being a friend of Sami's himself arranged a meeting for Hamza.

Hamza played some of his songs on the piano to Sami who was very impressed, he suggested that Hamza could help him with some of the writing and performing on his next album, it was then that Awakening Records decided that Hamza would be given his own album, to express his feelings about his crazy world.

Deidcation:


To all the Muslims who are suffering in the world and struggling to keep their faith strong.
And to Allah for putting me in a position where I'm doing what I enjoy for living.


Hamza's Message:


Bismillahir rahmanir Rahim
I've really enjoyed working in the studio, it's been a while since I last sat behind a microphone expressing my thoughts and feelings, it has been a great experience learning from my producer and we have become very good friends, I've enjoyed learning about different cultures as I never sang eastern melodies before or composed eastern style music before, it has made me realize that although we have different cultures, at the root of it all we are all the same
There is a lot of Muslims who have gone astray and I wanted to increase their love for Allah and for the prophet PBUH in my music to spread a good message for Muslims and non-Muslims., and to open up people's eyes to nature and to a deeper meaning to our way of life, Ameen.




Acknowledgment:


I want to thank everyone for their hard work and effort to make this dream of mine a reality, I would like to thank Nabeel for introducing me to Sami, Sami for believing in me, Barron for all his hard work and effort, Bara for helping me with the lyrics, uncle Firooz for the inspiration of eastern influences, and everyone at the awakening team who I've not been privileged to meet yet.
Wassalamu Alikum

Our Creation


Can we not see how the planets look like diamonds in the sky?
And everything on earth was created for you and I
And can we not see that man is merely waiting
For the final day to arrive, to arrive


CHORUS
Do we feel a deeper meaning to it all?
And in our creation there are no flaws
And weíre trying to control something we canít explain
Or we wander around blindly in the dark without an aim
Do we think it's all a game?


La Ilaha Illa Allah
Muhammadun Rasool Allah
There's no God but Allah
And Muhammad is the messenger of Allah


And do we think the truth is no longer clear to see?
And the simple things are left behind
Like smiling at your fellow man
Or looking up at the velvet sky
And sometimes it makes me wonder why weíre all still here


CHORUS

Morning Prayer

There is a reason why to Allah we pray
In the morning on every day
Itís a meeting and we must not be late
If we want to have peace we must obey and pray

CHORUS:
There is no better feeling
Than when we pray on time
And we know the rest of our days
Will work out just fine
So we must work hard and wake up before sunrise
So we can leave our homes with the blessings of Allah

Idha hafadhta 'alal salah
Hayatuka tumla' baraka
Idha hafadhta 'alal salah
Tanal ridhaa' Allah
If you maintained your prayers
Your life will be filled with blessings
If you prayed on time
Allah will be pleased with you

No excuses of why you cannot pray
Coz we need him on everyday
So don't tell me just why you turned up late
If we want to have peace we must obey and pray

CHORUS

Idha hafadhta 'alal salah
Hayatuka tumla' baraka
Idha hafadhta 'alal salah
Tanal ridhaa' Allah
If you maintained your prayers
Your life will be filled with blessings
If you prayed on time
Allah will be pleased with you

Listen brother and sister it's all been said before
You're too tired now so you sleep some more
But when you wake up there's an emptiness inside
If we want to have peace we must swallow our pride

Bridge:
I know my friend it's not easy
But we must try believe me
And we will feel a difference
In our lives and Allah will give us strength

Show Me


CHORUS:
Show me our way to return to him in peace
Show me a way and Iíd be gone tomorrow
For there is only one way for you and me
Show me the way home

His character was a thing of beauty
One to be admired
And when I think of him
Thereís a warm feeling deep inside
No one had conducts like him
And his enemies did agree
That he was known as the trusted one
Sent for you and me

CHORUS
The only time I feel happy
Is when heís on my mind
When I think of his perfection
He was so merciful and kind
Heís a perfect example
Of the way we all should be
His mission was accomplished with grace
And he was sent for you and me

Bridge:
Have we forgotten the one who loves us the most?
Have we forgotten the pain and the sorrow?
He went through so much for us, so much donít you know?
To show us the way home

CHORUS

If only I could be with him
Just for one day
Just to sit with him he could show me
The right way
In character in conducts and in body
And in mind
Nothing can compare to the master
Of mankind

CHORUS

The Mountain


I gave my Salam to the mountain
And I drank from the mountain stream
And I walked uponits surface
And it all felt like a dream
And this mountain it is a Muslim
And I feel like heís my friend
And as I climbed on to his peak
I wished it would never end

CHORUS:
Allahu Allahu Allahu (throughout)
La Ilaha Ella Allah (throughout)
We should be like the mountain
It never complains
We should be like the mountain
It praises God and never complains
We should be like the mountain
Like the mountain

I gave my Salam to the mountain
And I strive through the wind and the snow
And something caught my eye up in the sky
And I wished it would never let go
Cause this mountain it is a Muslim
And I feel like heís my friend
And as I climbed on to his peak
I wished it would never end

Subhanaka Ya Allah
Glory be to You oh Allah

On this mountain I feel complete
And while Iím here to this mountain I will speak

Subhanaka Ya Allah
Glory be to You oh Allah

And thank God for this wonderful day
And I know the mountain feels the same way

Subhanaka Ya Allah
Glory be to You oh Allah

CHORUS

We should be like the mountain
An awe-inspiring Muslim
As it is
We should be like the mountain
Like the mountain

La Ilaha Ella Allah
There's no God but Allah
Allahu Allah

Beaming with so much grace


Brighter than the sun
Fairer than the moon
Your beauty is so dazzling


Bigger than the sea
Higher than the clouds
Your soul is so enlightening
