Healing by Sami Yusuf

The Story Behind The Song

Healing. An ambition and a vision. Healing. A call embedded in the wisdom to give in order to gain. A smile is an act of charity; sharing love and caring for others enhances prestige and position of the loving and the loved; of the caring and the cared alike. Sami Yusuf's new song "Healing" is a call to revive the caring aspect of human beings. "Healing" is a chance to vindicate all those best hopes one has about oneself and about humanity. It is an attempt to honor the small acts of kindness. It is a tribute to those who sacrifice and stand up for good even when it's hard, even when it's tough -- it is an embodiment of gracious generosity in practice.

The idea of this project was incepted at Sami's meeting with Dr. Walid Fitaihi, Founder and CEO of the International Medical Center, back in 2006. They discussed the possibility of making a song that promotes healing with kindness and lending hands to others. This project was realized this year when International Medical Center (IMC) and ETM International signed a contract to deliver the message of how kindness is one way of healing oneself and others.

The lyrics of this song were written by Sami Yusuf in collaboration with Dr. Walid. The lyrics aim to touch the hearts of people and encourage them to be tender with one another. The video was filmed in Jeddah over nine days as one of the biggest productions for a song in Saudi Arabia. The video shows a series of scenes that embody the idea of exchanging help and support among people. It is a heartfelt depiction of everyday incidents and various situations spanning over a wide age group involving different professions.

The release of this song and the video corresponds with the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan -- the month of mercy, hoping it will capture hearts and souls of all. "Healing" is a celebration of values we share as human beings and the resolve to uphold and reward such values.

Heal and you will be healed :)

It's so hard to explain
What I'm feeling
But I guess it's ok
Cause I'll keep believing
There's something deep inside
Something that's calling
It's calling you and I
It's taking us up high

Healing, a simple act of kindness brings such meaning
A smile can change a life let's start believing
And feeling, let's start healing

Heal and you will be healed
Break every border
Give and you will receive
It's Nature's order
There is a hidden force
Pulling us closer
It's pulling you and I
It's pulling us up high

Healing, a simple act of kindness brings such meaning
A Smile can change a life let's start believing
And feeling, let's start healing

Hearts in the hand of another heart and in God's hand are all hearts
An eye takes care of another eye and from God's eye nothing hides
Seek only to give and you'll receive
So, heal and you will be healed

OUTRO (x2):
قلب بين يدي قلب و بيد الله كل قلب
عين ترعى عينا، وعين الله ترعى
كلمة طيبة صدقة
تبسمك لأخيك صدقه
كل معروف صدقة
اللهم اشف شفاءً لا يغادر سقماً
