Blessed is your face Blessed is your name My beloved Blessed is your smile Which makes my soul want to fly My beloved All the nights And all the times That you cared for me But I never realised that And now it’s too late Forgive me NowI’m alone filled with so much shame For all the years I caused you pain If only I could sleep in your arms again Mother I’m lost without you You were the sun that brightened my day Now who’s going to wipe my tears away If only I knew what I know today Mother I’m lost withoutyou Ummahu, ummahu, ya ummi wa shawqahu ila luqyaki ya ummi Ummuka, ummuka, ummuka ummuka Qawlu rasulika Fi qalbi, fi hulumi Anti ma’i yaummi Mother... Mother... O my mother How I long to see O mother
“Yourmother, Your mother, Your mother”
Is the saying of your Prophet In myheart, in my dreams You are always with me mother Ruhti wa taraktini Ya nura ‘aynayya Ya unsa layli Ruhti wa taraktini Man siwaki yahdhununi Man siwaki yasturuni Man siwaki yahrusuni
‘Afwaki ummi Samihini...
You went and left meO light of my eyesO comfortof my nightsYou went and left meWho, other than you, will embraceme?
Who, other than you, will cover me?
Who, other than you, will guardover me?
Your pardon mother, forgive meEnglish lyrics: Sami Yusuf & Bara KherigiArabic lyrics: Shaykh Zakariya Siddiqicomposition: Sami Yusuf
