The teacher used the melody of the song “This Is My Fight Song,” written by Rachel Platten, and altered the original lyrics to fit Islam. The original lyrics read:

Like a small boat on the ocean

Sending big waves into motion

Like how a single word

Can make a heart open

I might have only one match

But I can make an explosion

The teacher’s version went like this:

Like a sandstorm in the desert

Sending camels into motion,

Like how a single faith

Can make a heart open

They might only have one god,

But they can make an explosion.
