Lyrics

طلع البدر علينا
Tala‘a al-badru ‘alaynā
Oh the white moon rose over us

من ثنيات الوداع
Min thanīyāti al-wadā‘
From the valley of al-Wadā‘
وجب الشكر علينا
Wajab al-shukru ‘alaynā
And we owe it to show gratefulness

ما دعى لله داع
Mā da‘ā lillāhi dā‘
Where the call is to Allah.
أيها المبعوث فينا
Ayyuha al-mab‘ūthu fīnā
Oh you who were raised among us

جئت بالأمر المطاع
Ji’ta bil-amri al-mutā‘
Coming with a word to be obeyed

جئت شرفت المدينة
Ji’ta sharaft al-madīnah
You have brought to this city nobleness

مرحبا يا خير داع
Marḥaban yā khayra dā‘
Welcome best caller to God's way
