First Line: He willed, and heaven's blue arch vaulted the air
Last Line: Morning and evening prayer to each.
Subject(s): God; Islam


Al-'Halî! Oh, believers, magnify
By this great name, Allah, our Lord "Most High."

He willed, and Heaven's blue arch vaulted the air;
"Be!" said He—Earth! and the round earth was made;
See! at the hour of late and early prayer
The very shadows worship Him, low laid.

Most High! the lengthening shadows teach
Morning and evening prayer to each.
