Jamatkhana is a wonderful place

It also keeps a smile on your face!

And this smile is so wide-from ear to ear,

It makes all unhappiness disappear!

And those tasbihs that look so new,

When you use them you shine too!

To me Jamatkhana is a time of joy,

For man, woman, girl and boy!

But sometimes I wonder why people are bad,

Because it only makes dear Mowlabapa sad!

But when people are good and they pray,

It makes me want to say:

From North to South,

and East and West,

JAMATKHANA is the best!
