Peace, one and all…

maxresdefault (1)

A beautiful nefes from the Alevi tradition. May all who pass by be blessed with goodness.

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

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

Padişahım yaradan
Okur aktan karadan
Ben pirimden ayrıldım
Bin yıl geçti aradan

Aramı uzattılar
Yarama tuz bastılar
Fazlı’dan bir kul geldi
Bedestanda sattılar

Sattılar bedestanda
Ses verir gülistanda
Muhammed’in hatemi
Bergüzardır aslanda

English Translation
Today a master had came to us
His roses came fresh
And his faithful servant
Ali Murteza has come*

Thank you my lord thank you
The righful God, only God is Allah
Thank you master thank you
His name is beauiful, he’s a fair lord

Ali is our lord
Kaaba is our qiblah
Mohammad in the ascension
He is our shah

My king,
He reads from everywhere
I’ve been away from my master
A thousand years have passed

They came between me and him
They poured salt onto my wound
A slave came from Fazlı
They sold him at Bedestan

They sold him at Bedestan
He shouts from the rose garden
The seal of Mohammad
Is a souvenir in a lion
