Karbala, Karbala
Karbala, Karbala

Hussain was slain
His family in pain
No soldiers had remained
Women in chains
Children in pain
Yazid is to be blamed

But this is not what remains
From the land of Karbala

The knight in flames
The charging man
No child slept
The women all wept
The sound of cries
The orphans’ sighs
Blood shed from the ones who died

But this is not what remains
From the land of Karbala

Karbala, Karbala
Karbala, Karbala

Hossein wrote with his blood
On the sand of Karbala
La ilaaha illa Allah
Muhammad rasul Allah


This is all that remains
From the land of Karbala

La ilaaha illa Allah
Muhammad rasul Allah


Karbala, Karbala
Karbala, Karbala
