Pirlere niyaz ederiz

Pirlere niyaz ederiz
Yalan dünya nideriz
Ölürüz hasret gideriz
Göster şol didarı bana (x2)
 
Allah bir Muhammed Ali
Nazar eyle bari bana
İzzü celalin aşkına
Çektirme şol zarı bana
 
Pirlere niyaz ederiz
Yalan dünya nideriz
Ölürüz hasret gideriz
Göster şol didarı bana (x2)
 
Kalender ağlar yerinir
Aşk hayaliyle sürünür
Cenneti Rıdvan görünür
Şol güzelin kaddi bana
 
Pirlere niyaz ederiz
Yalan dünya nideriz
Ölürüz hasret gideriz
Göster şol didarı bana (x2)

Pirlere niyaz ederiz

We would pray to the Patriarchs
Its a fake world, what can we do (for this)?
We would die, (and) we would go (to the other world) with longing
Show that face (of God) to me
 
Ya Hak! Ya Hû! (o God!, o God!)
 
God is one, Muhammad*, Ali*
At least, look at me (to my heart)
For the sake of the greatness of the greatness (for God)
Don't let me live in this fear! (Fear of not seeing God's face in hereafter)
 
Ya Hak! Ya Hû! (o God!, o God!)
 
We would pray to the Patriarchs
Its a fake world, what can we do (for this)?
We would die, (and) we would go (to the other world) with longing
Show that face (of God) to me
 
Kalender* would cry and repent
He would languish/suffer for the dream of love (of God's love)
The head of angels in heaven would show himself
That beauty's height (of God)
 
Ya Hak! Ya Hû! (o God!, o God!)
 
We would pray to the Patriarchs
Its a fake world, what can we do (for this)?
We would die, (and) we would go (to the other world) with longing
Show that face (of God) to me

Author's comments:

This is an ethnic-chant of Turkish Alevi Muslims.
The song is a kind of orisons of the pleasure of seeing God's face in the afterlife. True believers who follow the commandments of God in this world have been gifted to see the face of God in the hereafter (in the belief of Alevi Islam; a heterodox-Shia- Sufi branch of Islam, mostly believe by minority of the Turks)
Kalender: means anyone who lives chastely.
Muhammad: Prophet of Islam. He is viewed as the final prophet of God in all the main branches of Islam.
Ali: was a cousin and son-in-law of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, who ruled as the fourth caliph from 656 to 661. He is one of the central figures in Shia Islam and is regarded as the rightful immediate successor to Muhammad as an Imam by Shia Muslims.
