Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God

Karbala
Is on our Mind
Let us see what we can find

From the lives
of Husayn's men
Who wrote the truth with a bloody pen

Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God

In our heart
There lies a scar,
Carved in by Ali Akbar

Young indeed
But there was the need
For the wrath of a lion heart

Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God

And of Abbas
What can we say
Look at his body at the end of the day

Bloodied and cleaved
Now perceive
The faith of a soldier who truly believed

Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God

Hurr the free
Was able to see
The clarity of the Imam's plea

His switched his side
And changed the tide
And rush to his death with battle pride

Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God

There's Habib
Wishing to be
The first cut down by the enemy

His loyalty
Was completely
For the son of Imam Ali

Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God

And there's Sa'eed
Ready to bleed
For the sake of Muhammad's creed

In salat
The arrows he'd shield
Till his fate was finally sealed.

Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God

Zuhayr the pure
Was more than sure
To join Husayn and not linger

Leaving his town
He won't let him down
He fought till he won a martyr's crown

Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God

As-hab al-Husayn
Brutally slain
Taught the world to overcome its pain

All aboard
Seeking their Lord
Their blood finally overcame the sword

Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God

Men like these
Can't be appeased
Carry the future of our species

Monks by night
Waiting to fight
Changed into lions at first daylight

Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God

Ya Mahdi
Adriknee
Save this world from tyranny

And liberate
Islam's fate
From the yoke of those who hate

Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God


Unity
is the fee
That we all must clearly see

To stand up tall
And not fall
We must form one solid wall

Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
Thar Allah, Thar Allah
Hussain is the rising sword of God
