Translation of the Lyrics:
The One Creator, the all greats;
Lord of the universe-
The living, the original;
Ruler with power innate;
The giver, the sustainer,
the unique , compassionate;
This master praise, to Him alone
thyself in praise prostrate..
The generous, who does create
the universe in pairs..
Read letter A, (Alif) forget all other pages,
Cleanse your heart, how long can you read pages after pages.
O mother, how my heart will find peace without beloved
Those who yearn for you, are all the time in pain of separation.
All praise to Allah
