On the Morn of Muharram

imam hussein (a.s)

Wake up my friends; for the morn of

Qiama has arrived

It is the month of Muharram

The crescent of grief has appeared

The month of mourning has arrived

Muharram is the month of tears

Muharram is the month of blood

Bodies are shredded

And the desert is a garden of blood

The crescent of grief has appeared

The month of mourning has arrived

The creation is sad and in mourning

It is the month:

When Hussein was martyred

When the eyes of 'Ali shed blood

The crescent of grief has appeared

The month of mourning has arrived

Hussein sacrificed for thee path of Islam

His head is on the spear

His body is on the ground

The crescent of grief has appeared

The month of mourning has arrived

The arms of 'Abbas were cut in this month

The three-edged arrow settled in the

parched throat of little Asghar

The crescent of grief has appeared

The month of mourning has arrived

Zeinab will hug the dust of thee dungeon

in this month

Thee innocent face of Sakina will be

Bruised in this month

The crescent of grief has appeared

The month of mourning has arrived.*
