"My sister Wafa,
My sister Wafa
Oh the heartbeat of pride
Oh blossom who was on earth and is now in Heaven.
Allah Akbar! [Allah is great]
Oh Palestine of the Arabs
Allah Akbar, Oh Wafa!
But you chose Shahada (Martyrdom)
In death you have brought life to the aspiration
But you chose Shahada
In death you have brought life to the aspiration."
