    Nina Shukuru, He Baba Wangu - I am grateful, O my (Spiritual) Father

    Nime Furahi, Leo Sana, - I am filled with much joy today

    Nimeku ona, Leo Mowla, - I have glanced at You today Mowla

    Nimeku funga, moyoni mwangu - I have locked You up (captured you), inside of my heart


    Nita kumbuka kila siku - I shall remember each and every day

    Sikuku ya Leo maisha yangu - The Eid (celebration) of today, until the end of my life

    Naku omba, kwa moyo mwangu - I beseech You with all my heart

    Niweke salama, moyoni mwako - Keep me safely, within Your heart


    Usikie vizuri, maimbo zangu - Hear nicely these songs of mine

    Naomba kwako, neema yako - I am begging from You, Your grace (pleasure)

    Naku penda, na roho yangu - I Love You from within my soul

    Niweke salaama, moyoni mwako - Keep me safely, within Your heart


    Naimba leo, kwenye sherehe - I am singing today during the festival (Golden Jubilee)

    Kasida hizi, za sifa zako - These Kasida (devotional songs) of Your praise

    Lete Baraka, Nchi Tanzania - Bring Barakat (prosperity) to the Country of Tanzania

    Lete Baraka, Uganda Kenya - Bring Barakat (prosperity) to Uganda, Kenya

    Niweke salama, Moyoni mwako - Keep me safely, within Your heart
