Iím Zaynab
All my life I lived in pain
Iím Zaynab
I died when I lost Husain

I am the mother of sorrows
Wherever I go, woe follows
I am the mother of sorrows
Wherever I go, woe follows

Iím Zaynab
All my life I lived in pain
Iím Zaynab
I died when I lost Husain

My grief started when I lost mankindís true mercy
After that loss, I lost Zahra, and then ĎAli
The broken rib, the struck head of ĎAli haunts me
My grief deepened seeing Hassan dying slowly

How can I live now without you, my dear
How can I see your head shine on a spear

I am the mother of sorrows
Wherever I go, woe follows
I am the mother of sorrows
Wherever I go, woe follows

Iím Zaynab
All my life I lived in pain
Iím Zaynab
I died when I lost Husain

My heart was shattered on the day Husain was killed
The day of 10th when the whole world with blood was filled
Upon my mind, sorrow and pain was instilled
O Lord, let our small sacrifice be now fulfilled

O Shiía, when youíre thirsty, say his name
O Shiía, curse the one who lit the flame
I am the mother of sorrows
Wherever I go, woe follows
I am the mother of sorrows
Wherever I go, woe follows

Iím Zaynab
All my life I lived in pain
Iím Zaynab
I died when I lost Husain
