Hu- God Just God- Analysis of an Anthem

Misbah enjoys poetry and loves to convey the messages of Love through her poems.

In Sufism, the pronoun Hu or Huwa is used to represent Allah or God. Hu is also used as the name of God. Allah Hu translates as "God, Only He!". It is believed that the Visualization of this Holy Name is a special type of meditation that provides many benefits to the Meditators.

In Arabic language, هُوَ (Hu) means “He” and is used For Allah, the God.

"Hu" is a wonderful name of God that is used in the East and in the Middle East. The one whose real name is unstoppable, really beyond earthly languages.

Allow me to surprise you by taking you on a spiritual journey with a song named "Bol Hu." The song is composed by "Soch the Band" and has featured 8-year-old Hadia. The song is a soul-searching trance of belief and determination.

The song is originally written, sung, and translated by Soch The Band, Nescafé Basement Season 5.

The purpose of sharing is to bring the East's voice and work to the Western world. The song is touching, but sadly, many Eastern artists and poets are little known in Western culture.

Lyrics

Color yourself within
Within you will find a friend,
Create your own small universe,
Be a spiritual ecstatic traveler.

Say HU (God), JUST GOD, JUST GOD, JUST GOD
continue to dream with empty eyes
Listen to everyone, but do what your heart suggests.
Keep fighting, keep pushing forward, piece by piece,
Continue to collect your fate
Even the hottest summer dry wind, seems lovely, and freezing,

If the soul and body say just "HU" (God only God).

Tears must be shed while prostrating.
Be a spiritual ecstasy traveler...
Leave your problems behind
Why do you think of someone else?
You may only repeat HU (GOD ONLY GOD) in prostration
Who are you, and why is your heart broken?
And in pain? What is the purpose of your existence? Think!

Fight the internal struggle...
Amaze everyone in your vicinity...
Make your own world...
Become a spiritual ecstasy traveler...
Leave all your problems behind...
Simply say, "HU... HU... HU... ALLAH HU!"
Just God, Just God, and Just God,

Just God, Just God, and Just God.

Analysis of the Song

The song tells us about the development of self-consciousness and self-acceptance despite all your shortcomings, both visible and hidden. This is the start of any personal journey, anytime. Be aware of your 'colors and carry them proudly'. Also, It is important to know that this stage will take a lot of effort, and you'll most likely find yourself all alone in your own little universe.

Self-discovery can be energizing, reawakening a sense of wonder and excitement about life. This stage will be referred to as "unburdening". The song tells us to plan our lives, put in the effort, learn from others, weave our dreams with the goal of making them a reality, rely on routines and discipline, and accept full responsibility for our choices.

It challenges us to take another step forward with each breath, to choose our fate, and to collect it piece by piece. This stage is all about figuring out what you're doing, making plans, and sticking to them.

The song encourages us to believe that we can ride through any storm without losing our inner selves - it's all about optimism and resilience. Then the lyricist challenges us to do a reality check.

It says we, the humans, put in the effort, but we always seem to lose sight, we usually feel unsatisfied and distracted. It says we have to manage ourselves to stay motivated. Our concentration often fades. We quite often are unable to establish our priorities. The song encourages us that it is now the time to revisit our inner selves and check ‘who' and ‘why' we are? It wants us to find out why we exist in this universe? What is the real purpose of our life?

Coming to an end, the song reflects the mastery attitude of the believer. His approach to everything in his life with the same intensity as if he is on the battlefield and for him, it is a question of life and death.

The song says we have to get ready to fight with our own internal conflicts, an internal war, a war within. And if we act like this, we can gradually conquer our inner fears and anxieties. We will be able to astound all those who questioned us along the way and they will be astounded to see our elevation on the spiritual level.

The song ends on a spiritual note. It begins with a man and ends with God. The song gives us a message that when one commits to a greater purpose in life, he or she becomes closer to the Divine Energy, the Super Power, The God -- Hu, Just God, and nothing in between.

The true test of spirituality is to fight your inner self, to defeat your inner conflicts. Good luck to all spiritual travelers, I wish may you all get the happiness of this world and beyond. Amen!

Rodric, I appreciate your beautiful thoughts. Your thoughtfulness is much appreciated. Congratulations if it makes your eyes water while you listen to it. It means that the light has already entered in your heart. God loves you and without any doubt, He loves everyone. I'm delighted to see you here. Because this article is quite old, I'm sure you dug deep into the feed to discover it. Your efforts are much appreciated. You are really generous. I enjoyed reading your comment. Allah Hu!!

I would love to share some quotes with you here Rumi said “the wound is the place where the light gets in”. The awareness of your pain is actually an opportunity to let the light in so know that wound is also a Blessing.

Jane Austen said, “We do not suffer by accident”. It means every cause has a reason even pain sometimes gives pleasure.

Sigmund Freud believed that “out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength.” it means we cannot learn without making errors. Life is like that my friend. We all face different situations and challenges in life and finally we all learn from those times. Find God's happiness in everything you do and all other things will get in the right place. There should be no fear when God is so near.

Sorry for making it too long but I really enjoyed your comment.

May God continue to bless you. Amen!

Blessings and Peace

This is quite a wonderful song that you have explained.

I must be there in the midst...cause I find myself in that little world by myself.

Fighting those inner conflicts is a tough one, but God will show me the way.

Misbah, thank you for writing this article. After reading the lyrics and reading your article, I listened to the video at the end and it brought moisture to my eyes. Just God.

Here's one for you

ایک میں اور تو،عالم جستجو میکدے کا سماں ،مے فشاں تو ہی تو لمحہ بھر خامشی ،اور پھر گفتگو حال دل با اثر،جم گیا ہے لہو خواب گاه تیرا در،بس تری آرزو عشق صابررہا،اور میں تند خو دل کی اک بی صدا، اللہ ھو اللہ ھو

(You and I, and

the world is like a search,

the wine is like a moment of silence, and then the conversation is effective,

the heart is frozen,

the blood is at your doorstep,

just the longing,

the love is patient, and I

Silently say Allah, HE the God)

Misbah, your article is well-structured and beautiful. Great food for thought and soul here. When you said ALLAH HU, the soul replies with great energy that nothing is more peaceful than these words.

I want to dedicate this urdu poetry to your article:

Tasbeeh rahay dam dam jari...

Ik dard hay andar Allah Hu...

Her rag main uska nam rawan...

Her saans ka mahwer Allah Hu...

(The praise continues at all times...

There is a pain inside Allah Hu...

His name is flowing in every vein...

The axis of every breath, Allah Hu...)

Thanks for sharing this beautiful article.
