O Mosque, O Mosque! O Mosque, O Mosque, O sacred place, O Mosque, O Mosque, center of grace. Your minaret, from which light abounds, Sends forth your meaningful sounds. With a hundred counsels you invite us, To hasten towards Allah's forgiveness. Hasten for the prayer-food of sages, Time of ascension and flying through ages. Hasten in my direction the prayer, the prayer, The best work is prayer so honest and fair. O Mosque, fair guide of the human race, The sound from you is the sound of faith. A tent of light on dark, dark land, A cool canopy on hot, scorching sand. Over our heads, you, kind neighbor, Our citadel in times of danger. Holy cradle of heart, soul and faith, Of me and Allah, a meeting place.
