Marhaban Ya Ramadhan
Ramadan is here, The month that is blessed;
Ramadan is here, The month we love best.
The month in which the Qur’an was sent;
A time of great blessing in which to repent.
Fasting for Allah is a great Muslim deed;
Controlling desires and Suppressing greed.
Ramadan is coming, Increase your Iman(faith).
Ramadan is coming, Recite the Qur’an.
Take “Suhur” in the dead of the Night;
No eating or drinking during the daylight.
Refrain from bad deeds and repent your soul;
The pleasure of Allah is our only goal.
Even if there is hunger, remember your Lord
And wait until ‘Iftar’ to earn your reward.
Fasting is one of the gifts of Allah
Given to believers to increase ‘Taqwah’ (piety).
We pray to Allah to put right our hearts;
Ask for forgiveness from Allah and make a new start.
Raising our hands we ask for his ‘Rahmaa’;
Hear us our Lord and grant us ‘Jannah’.
