Ramadan approaches, full of sun and noises
Of the street, crowds in white long garments
Going to the mosque for early morning prayer
All around is silent before the first fajr call,
Colorful flags are waving on the wind, from both
Sides of narrow streets. I feel as if my soul
Is flying with their moves, I feel the peace
And happiness, excitement of the noon...
I see in nights the first slice of growing moon.
My favorite is melody of adhan, which brings
me back in times, so long ago, when I was child,
the voices of the prayers come along - and gather
high in the sky together in one gorgeous tone
with holly sound : Allaaahu Akbar, Allaaahu Akbar,
ashhadu ana la illaha il allah ...
