LYRICS:

‘Eyvallah Shahim’

Bugün bize pir geldi
Gülleri taze geldi
Önü sıra kamberi
Aliyyelmurteza geldi

Eyvallah şahım eyvallah
Hak la ilahe illallah
Eyvallah pirim eyvallah
Adı güzeldir güzel şah
(x2)

Ali bizim şahımız
Kabe kıblegahımız
Mi’raçtaki Muhammed
O bizim padişahımız

Eyvallah şahım eyvallah
Hak la ilahe illallah
Eyvallah pirim eyvallah
Adı güzeldir güzel şah
(x3)

Padişahım aradan
Okhoor aktan Gharadan
Ben pirimden ayrıldım
Been yıl geçti aradan

Eyvallah şahım eyvallah
Hak la ilahe illallah
Eyvallah pirim eyvallah
Adı güzeldir güzel şah
(x2)

 

Translation in English:

‘Greetings My King’

Today the beloved came to us
His roses came fresh
Before him, his kamber
Ali el-Murteza came

Greetings my king, greetings
The truth, there’s no god but Allah
Greetings my king, greetings
His name is beautiful, beautiful king
(x2)

Ali is our king
Kaaba is our holy place
Muhammed in the mi’raj
He is our great king

Greetings my king, greetings
The truth, there’s no god but Allah
Greetings my king, greetings
His name is beautiful, beautiful king
(x3)

Our king, the creator
He reads through white or black
I have been away from my beloved
It’s been a thousand years

Greetings my king, greetings
The truth, there’s no god but Allah
Greetings my king, greetings
His name is beautiful, beautiful king
(x2)
