Ramadhān has come, O people of understanding
So welcome it after its long absence.
A year from our life has passed while we were in a state of heedlessness
So pay attention for life is like the shadow of (a fast-moving) cloud.
And prepare yourselves for patience and hardship,
For the rewards of those who have patience are beyond measure.
Allāh rewards those who fast because for His sake they held easy that which is hard.
None shall enter the Gate of Rayyān except the one who fasts.
How excellent indeed that Gate is among the other Gates!
رمـضانُ أقـبلَ يا أُولي الألبابِ
فاستَـقْـبلوه بعدَ طولِ غيـابِ
عـامٌ مضى من عمْرِنا في غفْلةٍ
فَتَـنَبَّهـوا فالعمرُ ظـلُّ سَحابِ
وتَهـيّؤوا لِـتَصَـبُّرٍ ومـشـقَّةٍ
فأجـورُ من صَبَروا بغير حسابِ
