There are no Adhaans, no call to prayers
in this part of the world,
I miss the melody that ring in the air,
across the world in another part,
more in these blessed days,
there are no sahar khan, no waqt-e-sahar
drum shouts, on the roads
No announcements, no pronouncements,
of Iftaar, Iftaar, Iftaar
ringing in the air.
But Alhamdulillah the blessings are,
all the same, and there is barakah
in the days, and mercy of Allah
all over the place,
all sisters and brothers get together,
and break their fast,
the spirit of being one ummah
breathes here in the skies.
And even though there is no adhaan,
the blessings, the love, the mercy
all live together here,
and even though we are away from home
the essence of being home prevails.
