Jamatkhana is a wonderful place
And always keeps a smile on your face!
The smile is so wide – from ear to ear,
It makes all unhappiness disappear!
And those Tasbihs that look so new,
When you use them you shine too!
To me Jamatkhana is a time of joy,
For man, woman, girl and boy!
But sometimes I wonder why people are bad,
Because it only makes dear Mawlabapa sad!
But when people are good and they pray,
It makes me want to say:
From North to South, East to West,
Jamatkhana is the best
