Translation?

Nicholas's Photo Nicholas 04 Apr 2008

Hi, I need help translating something from Arabic to English. Thanks.

nastagh-firuka ya Hokan
ya Dhal-Jalah wal-Ikram
Isa ruhu-lah 'alaihis-salat was-salam
ya Halim, ya Qahhar
ya Muntaqim, ya Ghaffar!
la Ilaha ilallahu, Allahu Akbar!

Isa ruhu-lah 'alaihis-salat was-salam- I've heard two different translations for this sentence but I only remember one. Someone told me it said "Awake and come to prayer, in peace prayer is better then sleep" is that correct?

^^ Agreed.


As for the rest...(I'm not an arabic speaker but I can try. )

nastagh-firuka ya Hokan

We ask for forgiveness, O Judge(??)

ya Dhal-Jalah wal-Ikram

Oh the Lord of Majesty and Bounty, The One who deserves to be Exalted and not denied

ya Halim, ya Qahhar

O Forebearing, O subduer

ya Muntaqim, ya Ghaffar!

O Avenger, O Forgiver

la Ilaha ilallahu, Allahu Akbar

There is no god but Allah (God), Allah is the greatest

Isa=Arabic for Jesus (peace be upon him)

Where is this from btw?

A song by the band MeWithOutYou, I was just wondering what it meant. They're a Christian band but the singer is Arabic and likes to sing in Arabic in some of his songs. Also I'd like to learn Arabic, its a cool sounding language.
