    LYRICS:

    You came to me
    In that hour of need
    When I was so lost
    So lonely

    You came to me
    Took my breath away
    Showed me the right way
    The way to lead

    You filled my heart with love
    Showed me the light above
    Now all I want
    Is to be with you

    You are my one true love
    Taught me to never judge
    Now all I want
    Is to be with you

    [Arabic:]
    Allahumma
    O God

    Salli ‘ala Sayyidina Mustafa
    Send Your blessings upon our leader, The Chosen One

    ‘Ala Habibeeka, Nabi’eeka, Mustafa
    Upon Your Beloved, Your Prophet, The Chosen One

    You came to me
    In a time of despair
    I called on you
    You were there

    Without you
    What would my life mean?
    To not know the unseen
    The worlds between

    For you I’d sacrifice
    For you I’d give my life
    Anything,
    Just to be with you

    I feel so lost at times
    By all the hurt and lies
    Now all I want
    Is to be with you

    [Arabic:]
    Allahumma
    O God

    Salli ‘ala Sayyidina Mustafa
    Send Your blessings upon our leader, The Chosen One

    ‘Ala Habibeeka, Nabi’eeka, Mustafa
    Upon Your Beloved, Your Prophet, The Chosen One

    Showed right from wrong
    Taught me to be strong
    Need you more than ever
    Ya Rasul Allah

    You came to me
    In that hour of need
    Need you more than ever
    Ya Rasul Allah

    You filled my heart with love
    Showed me the light above
    Now all I want
    Is to be with you

    You are my One True love
    Taught me to never judge
    Now all I want
    Is to be with you

  3. Mawlana (Live In New Delhi)

    Composed, produced and performed by Sami Yusuf
    Words by Umar ibn Ali ibn al-Farid (d. 1234)

    Translation:

    In memory of the Beloved
    We drank a wine

    With which we had been drunk
    Before the creation of the vine.

    The full moon was its cup.
    While the wine was a sun passed round

    By a crescent, which when mixed,
    How many stars appear!

    Mawlana

    If not for its fragrance,
    I would never have been guided to its tavern.

    If not for its radiance,
    Imagination could never picture it,

    Time preserved nothing of it, but a fading breath,

    As if its being hidden in the breasts of the wise were concealed.

    If you are drunk with it for but one hour,

    You will see time an obedient slave at your command.

    For there is no life in this world for one who lives sober;

    And one who dies not drunk from it,
    Resolution has passed him by.

  4. Hasbi Rabbi (Live in New Delhi)

    [Urdu:]
    Wo tanha kaun hai?
    Badshah wo kaun hai?
    Meherba wo kaun hai?
    Who is the only One?
    Who is the King?
    Who is the Merciful?

    Kya unchi shan hai
    Uskey sab nishan hai
    Sab dilon ki jan hai
    Who is the most praised and benevolent?
    Whatever you see in this world is His sign
    He’s the love of every soul

    [Turkish]
    Affeder gunahi
    Alemin padisahi
    Yureklerin penahi
    He is the Forgiver of all sins
    He is the King of the universe
    He is the Refuge of all hearts

    Isit Allah derdimi, bu ahlarimi
    Rahmeyle, bagisla gunahlarimi
    Hayreyle hem aksam hem sabahlarimi
    O God hear my sorrows and my sighs
    Have mercy and pardon my sins
    Bless my night and days

    [Arabic:]
    Ya rabbal ‘alamin
    Salli ‘ala Tahal amin
    Fi kulli waqtin wa hin
    O Lord of the worlds
    Send peace and blessings
    On Taha the trustworthy
    In every time and at every instant

    Imla’ qalbi bil yaqin
    Thabbitni ‘ala hadhad din
    Waghfir li wal muslimin
    Fill my heart with conviction
    Make me steadfast on this way of life
    And forgive me and all the believers
