This is a piece based on an Islamic story of a man who was blessed and favored because he did not judge people,even when he was cheated in business and the struggles of everyday life. It makes a great piece to do on days when the messages isabout not judging other people, picking your battles, or keeping your eyes on the Lord. There is a baritone solo that does the verse and the choir sings the refrain. It can easily be learned in one rehearsal as long as your baritone soloist is prepared before hand. There are only chords for accompaninment and was written for guitar, but can be played on piano.
