    Tala’a Al-Badru ‘Alayna ’08

    (Arabic Words & Melody: Traditional
    English Lyrics by Yusuf Islam)

    Tala’al-badru ‘alayna
    Min thaniyyat il-wada’
    Wajaba al-shukru ‘alayna
    Ma da’a lillahi da’

    O the white moon rose over us
    from the valley of Wada
    And we owe it to show gratefulness
    Where the call is to Allah

    Ayyuha al-mab’uthu fina
    Ji’ta bi-al-amri al-muta’
    Ji’ta sharrafta al-madinah
    Marhaban ya khayra da’

    O you who were raised amongst us
    Coming with a word to be obeyed
    You have brought to this city nobleness
    Welcome! Best caller to God’s way
