Narrated by Sahl (RA): Allah's Apostle (saw) said: " I and the one who looks after an orphan will be like this in Paradise, " showing his middle and index fingers and seperating them.
(Sahih Bukhari: Kitab ul talak)
Does anybody care?
Does anybody care;
That my stomach feels so very bare
My swollen arms and my swollen feet
My stomach too, 'cos i've got nothing to eat.
Does anybody care?
Does anybody care;
That i've walked for miles
Days and days on end
I walked bare foot
because my shoes are worn
Over dirty, dull streets
Does anybody care?
Does anybody care;
When night falls
And we shelter under the stars?
Would anybody care if we were dead
because we haven't been fed?

If somebody had given before it was too late
A little something out of their plate
Maybe we'd think there is hope still
Out there to be found.
But, Does anybody care?
Maybe if somebody out there could give
A little something to let us live
Hope would be everlasting
And we would know there was somebody
In this world that cared.
Does anybody care?
(SS, 1995)
