Don’t cry now Ummi, don’t cry now, rest now

Ummi, sleep,

It’s over Ummi, no more pain, no more

suffering, no more grief.

I see the fear in your eyes Ummi, thinking

what’s going to become of me,

Don’t you worry about me though Ummi

because Allah will watch over me.

I was going to build you a proper home where

we would live happily,

I was going to take you to Hajj Ummi, when

standing on my own two feet.

Those dreams will stay dreams now, never

becoming a reality,

My heart is breaking apart now Ummi with the

thought of you leaving me.

O’ my beloved Ummi, what will I do without

your company?

My world is upside down, I’m in pain! Turmoil!


Our lives mean nothing to them Ummi! They

hate us passionately!

But why does no one stop them Ummi? No one

listens to our plea!

Why does no one help us Ummi? Why is

everyone asleep?

Don’t they know we live in terror every day

from this enemy?

I get lost in my thoughts occasionally, I’ve

been thinking a lot lately,

I don’t know what we did to them, why do they

want to see us bleed?

The day we wait so long for; but it seems that

time has ceased,

When will this bloodshed stop? When will we

live again in peace?

But our blood is not wasted Ummi -remember

for this we die as Shaheed,

They may take our lives Ummi, but our souls

are forever free!

So they can beat me, starve me, cut me until

my body bleeds,

My soul will never submit to them, I’m a slave

to the Almighty…
