Madinah Tun Nabi Lyrics

Madinah Tun Nabi Lyrics

There was merriment and joy
a smile on the face of every girl and boy
The streets of Yathrib welcomed in the Prophet of Allah
Muhammad, salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallim

A full white moon shone down upon the land
rising from the valley between the hills of sand
Being grateful to Allah was the Prophet’s demand
spreading Peace through the streets of Madinah

Madinah tun-Nabi! Madinah tun-Nabi!

The City of the Prophet is like home to me!
I’ll travel through the world, but I doubt that I will see
a city with such wonder as Madinah

Now the narrow winding roads are so full of history
streets shake with the adhan from Masjid un-Nabi
I feel the shadow of the Prophet gently cooling me
as I walk through the streets of Madinah

Madinah tun-Nabi! Madinah tun-Nabi!

The City of the Prophet is like home to me!
I’ll travel through the world, but I doubt that I will see
a city with such wonder as Madinah

The man who reads Qur’an ‘neath a date palm tree
and the smile from the child on the street selling tea
enchant me with their beauty and their simplicity
as I walk through the streets of Madinah

Madinah tun-Nabi! Madinah tun-Nabi!

The City of the Prophet is like home to me!
I’ll travel through the world, but I doubt that I will see
a city with such wonder as Madinah

Al Madinatul Munawarah!
Oh Englightened City!

Al Madinatul Munawarah, even in my sleep you call to me!

Time has hurried by, time has travelled on so fast
and though wisdom and truth will always last
I wish, I wish, I wish, that I could climb into the past…

…and live with the Prophet in Madinah!

Madinah tun-Nabi! Madinah tun-Nabi!
The City of the Prophet is like home to me!
I’ll travel through the world, but I doubt that I will see
a city with such wonder as Madinah

My heart is never far from the home of the Ansar
and the City of the Prophet, al-Madinah.
