Bazaar of Shaam we now have come
Akber my youthful one
Who shall I call upon?
Cried out Zainab oh my Master
Aun, Mohammed, Ali Akber
Oh those of you who are mothers
Or the sisters of loved brothers
Come beat your chests and grieve
For whom shall I bereave?
Clothed in the holy sand and all
Khaake shifaa's* my overall
Oh Prophet mercy to mankind
See how your ummah's been unkind
Will Rubaab ever find
Her innocent young child?
I hear the people saying in Shaam
Revenge is all we will demand
We will avenge Ali's command
His wives and daughters we'll surround
Rainfall of stones befell
No fear shown of hell
Amidst strangers unknown men folk
Unveiled we were all made to walk
"Where is Abbas?" called out Zainab
"Come and protect our mothers garb"
No torture ever hurt
Unveiling was the worst
These Muslims took the Prophet's name
For true Islam they're but a shame
This world's glory was all they sought
A battle with Husayn they fought
Zahra's Husayn they killed
With tears my eyes are filled
Hur heard the cries of al-atash*
He felt that he now he had to rush
He had to make a choice and tell
Choices between heaven and hell
Zahra's kerchief he got
Heaven he also bought
Khakke shifa: Another name for the Holy soil of Karbala
Al-Attash: Arabic word meaning "thirst"
