Bo-Kaap Poem & Song

CHORUS

Bo-Kaap and beyond is the Cradle of Islam

Filled with culture history heroes & eemaan

 

B

Beginning as always in the name of Allah
Blessings on our master we constantly implore

O

Our mission here is to serve Him, and only Him
Oceans and mountains do, so too the plant kingdom

K

King’s slaves and freedom fighters our ancestors were
Kanala and kaparangs only to prosper

A

Auwal and aaghier they established for our use
And plentiful minarets despite their disputes

A

Anger and anxiety may split us into bits
As capital erodes and destroys our spirits

P

Perchance in the process we may learn some taqwa
Perhaps we will earn His Pleasure, Insha-Allah
