Mai Sadkay Ya Rasool ALLAH p.b.u.h Tala’al-Badru ‘alayna

This was a Nasheed sung by the citizens of Medina when they were overjoyed at the arrival of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) in Medina from Mecca on the Hijrah. A song of welcome sung from the rooftops.

“Tala’al-Badru ‘alayna, 
min thaniyyatil-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 work to be obeyed 
You have brought to this city nobleness 
Welcome! best call to God’s way.
