Tala al Badru by Mishary Rashid Al-Afasy

Tala al Badru by Mishary Rashid Al-Afasy

others : Mishary Rashid Al-Afasy - Dua'a

Tala‘ al-Badru ‘Alaynā (Arabic: طلع البدر علينا) is a traditional Islamic song (Nasheed) that the Ansar sung to the Prophet Muhammad upon his arrival at Yathrib after completing the Hijra[1][2] in 622 CE.[3] The song is currently over 1400 years old, and one of the oldest in the Islamic culture.

Story behind the song

The Prophet Muhammad (SAW), when he first brought Islam to the city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia, he was mistreated and rejected. Some believed in his message and accepted Islam; they were brutally tortured. After some time, he and his people made the Hijrah, or migration, to the city of Medina, Saudi Arabia. The message had spread and the people of Medina had become Muslim. They were very excited for him to come because they’d accepted a way of life (and religion) and they were about to live in the presence of the Prophet that brought it once again to mankind (after Abraham, Moses, Jesus, etc.). As he and his people entered the city, the people of Medina sang this song to welcome him, and it’s lasted for fourteen hundred years in our hearts.

May this song be a comfort to our ears, and let it be a welcoming for us to a better place, a place of Islam, like it was for the Ummah of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW).




طلع البدر علينا
Tala‘ al-badru ‘alaynā
Oh the white moon rose over us

من ثنيات الوداع
Min thanīyātil-wadā‘
From the valley of al-Wadā‘.

وجب الشكر علينا
Wajab al-shukru ‘alaynā
And we owe it to show gratefulness

ما دعى لله داع
Mā da‘á lillāhi dā‘
Where the call is to Allah.

أيها المبعوث فينا
Ayyuhal mab‘ūthu fīnā
Oh you who were raised among us

جئت بالأمر المطاع
Ji’ta bil-amri al-muṭā‘>
Coming with a word to be obeyed

جئت شرفت المدينة
Ji’ta sharaft al-madīnah
You have brought to this city nobleness

مرحبا يا خير داع
Marḥaban yā khayra dā‘
Welcome best caller to God's way
