And fatema binte nabi
In honour of your family
Allah has made the skies and seas
There is no one like you
The flag bearer of truth

Ho dukhtare sheyre khuda

Ho warise ehle kisa 
Rab ki hai salaami 
Tum par deen ki haami

5.     You are the sister of Hussain
And of abbas who will remain
Together they lay face to face
Across from Baynul Haramayn 
They will not separate
This was always their fate

6.     Darbar e shaam mei khari 
Thi ye nawasi-e-nabi 
Matloob thi hijaab ki 
Khutbe ko wo parhti rahi 
Lehja tha ye aisa 
Masnad ko hilaaya

8.     Paraded in the streets of Shaam
With ropes and chains tied on your arms
Upon a spear was the imaam
Crying reciting the quraan
Prisoner with no veil
Your skin sunken and pale

9.     Hai teri zaat Ali ki zaat
Bachi hai puri kayinaat
Azaan o hajj sawmo salaat
Tujhse mili hume hayaat
Majlison ki bani
Kehte hain "Tejani"
