احمد بوخاطر | Ahmad Bukhatir

Country: UAE

Last Breath (English)

يا اُمّي - Ya Ommie - Oh Mother

Album: Samtan (In Silence)
I will return oh mother لسوف أعود يا أمي
And kiss your chaste head أقبّل رأسك الزاكي
And supress (blame?) my desires أبتّك كل أشواقي
And taste the scent of your blessings وأرشف عطر يمناك
Besmirch in the richness of your feet أمرغ في ثرى قدميك
my cheek when I meet you خدي حين ألقاك
Water the soil with my tears أروي الترب من دمعي
Happy that you are aliveسرورا في محياك

How many nights did you stay up late فكم أسهرت من ليل
So that I could sleep to my content? لأرقد ملأ أجفاني
And how many times did you thirst وكم أظمأت من جوف
So you could quench my thirst with your tenderness? لترويني بتحناني
And one day I was Ill, I do not forget ويوم مرضت لا أنسى
The tears from you that were like the rain دموعا منك كالمطر
And your eyes which stayed awake وعينا منك ساهرة
fearing that I may be in danger تخاف علي من خطر
And the day we parted at dawn ويوم وداعنا فجرا
and Oh what a harsh dawn that was وما أقساه من فجر
Words cannot explain what يحار القول في وصف الذي
I felt when I abandoned you لاقيت من هجري
And you told me things which I still وقلت مقولة لا زلــت
remember throughout my life مدّكرا بها دهري
"You will never find a heart محال أن ترى صدرا
more tender towards you than mine" أحن عليك من صدري
"You will never find a heart محال أن ترى صدرا
more tender towards you than mine" أحن عليك من صدري


obedience to you, oh want of my life.. ببرك يا منى عمري
[is what] the God of existence has instructed me to do. إله الكون أوصاني
Your content is the secret of my success رضاؤك سر توفيقي
And my love of you is the secret of my beleif وحبك ومض إيماني
And the sincerety of your prayer [for me].. وصدق دعائك انفرجت
has resolved my misfortunes and my sadness به كربي وأحزاني
My love towards you.. ودادك لا يشاطرني
no human being loves anything like it به أحد من البشر
You are the beating of my heart فأنت النبض في قلبي
And you are what lights my vision وأنت النور في بصري
And you are the tune on my lips وأنت اللحن في شفتي
My problems cease when I see your face بوجهك ينجلي كدري
To you I do return oh mother إليك أعود يا أمي
Tomorrow I rest from my journey غدا أرتاح من سفري
And a second age will begin for me ويبدأ عهدي الثاني
and the branches will blossom with flowers ويزهو الغصن بالزهر

الحجاب- Al Hijaab - The Headscarf

Album: Fartaqi
Let them say about my hijab... No, by my Lord I don't care or complain
Let them say about my hijab, that it wastes my youth
Let them elaborate in blaming me, To my religion is my belonging
No, By my lord I don't care or complain, my intention is as mountains
What meaning is there to beauty, if it is easily reached?


They tried to cheat me, I screamed leave me alone
I will stay in my palaces, I will not bow to impudence
They will not defeat my pride, I am the symbol of purity
I walk and piety is my light, Behind the Best of Prophets (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)

I have a soul which does not settle for that which is low
The way I take, Brothers and Sisters, my role model is Sumayya


I feed my soul with the guidance of the religion... Oh Sister our fountain is pure
Our way is the way of chastity; Walk in it you do not fear
Our religion is the religion of virtue. It doesn't accept vice
Oh daughter of the best religion, fly to paradise

With my hijab and decency, I will gain respect
I will go forward... I don't care if they blame me

هذا القران - HaathalQuraan - This Quran

This Quran unites us, To the path of Good it directs us

And the Prophet of Allah (PBUH) is our Teacher

This Quran is the Guide, for the first of us and for the last
It invites us to knowledge and to work, nothing apart from it edifies us!
