      يَا أَهْلَ يَثْرِبَ لَا مَقَامَ لَكُمْ بِهَا *** قُتِلَ اَلْحُسَيْنُ فَأَدْمُعِي مِدْرَارُ
      الجِّسْمُ مِنْهُ بِكَرْبَلَا مُضَرَّجُ*** وَالرَّأْسُ مِنْه عَلَى اَلْقَنَاةِ يُدَارُ
      O people of Yathrib! May you never stay therein! *** Al-Husayn is killed, so my tears now rain
      His body is in Karbala’ covered with blood *** While his head is on a spear displayed.
