Colorado High School Choir Forced to Praise Allah (Updated with Lyrics)
A Colorado School is forcing children to praise Allah in song.
FOX Nation reported:
A Colorado high school student says he quit the school choir after an Islamic song containing the lyric “there is no truth except Allah” made it into the repertoire.
James Harper, a senior at Grand Junction High School in Grand Junction, put his objection to singing “Zikr,” a song written by Indian composer A.R. Rahman, in an email to Mesa County School District 51 officials. When the school stood by choir director Marcia Wieland’s selection, Harper said, he quit.
“I don’t want to come across as a bigot or a racist, but I really don’t feel it is appropriate for students in a public high school to be singing an Islamic worship song,” Harper told KREX-TV. “This is worshipping another God, and even worshipping another prophet … I think there would be a lot of outrage if we made a Muslim choir say Jesus Christ is the only truth.”
But district spokesman Jeff Kirtland defended the decision to include the song.

Those of you, who seek Allah’s attention, Come, as you are called byAllah.
There is no better deed than ZIKR, said the Holy Prophet of Allah.And those who do ZIKR of Allah from core of their hearts, becomesuccessful.
And Zikr cuts Nafs (a human being’s desire to do whatever he wants,good or bad but used mostly for the desire to do evil things) soZikr is sword of Allah.
Zikr is peace, Zikr is victory, Zikr is remedy, and Zikr is prayer
(I can’t give exact meaning of the second line but it meanssomething like this)
Only Allah is eternal and will be there when nothing else will bethere, as everything other than Allah will get destroyed one day.

Take anything other than Allah out of your heart
And leave Light of Muhammad (May peace be upon him)
The Truth of La ila ha il Allah (the Kalma of testimony or
shahadath, the basic of Islam, where every Muslim declares that

Zikr is better than hatred; Zikr is better than not caring aboutlife hereafter
Zikr of Allah is much better compared to saying bad things aboutfellow human beings
