Hello,

Does any one know the meanings of some sentences in "Queen - Mustapha" Lyrics. It is interesting to hear a song where my father's name "Mustapha " and my name "İbrahim" is used. Thanks in advance.


Mustapha Ibrahim, al havra kris vanin
Allah, Allah, Allah will pray for you.
Mustapha, hey! Mustapha
Mustapha Mustapha - Allah-i na stolei
Mustapha Mustapha - Achtar es na sholei
Mustapha Mustapha - Mohammad dei ya low eshelei
Mustapha,
Ist avil ahiln avil ahiln adhim Mustapha,
Mustapha Ibrahim, achbar ish navin
Allah, Allah, Allah will pray for you.


Vontap ist ahiln avil ahiln adhim Mustapha,
Aleikum Salaam hey!

This isn't Arabic. At first I suspected it may be some other language (looks a bit Hebrew, a bit Farsi), but this site confirms that Freddie Mercury said in an interview that it doesn't mean anything..

Thanks Nasrin,

Some people make the following explanations:


This song is arguably, written in three languages; English, Arabic, and Parsi, which is the language commonly spoken in Iran.

After deeply scrutinizing the song, I deduced that Mustapha Ibrahim is a common Middle Eastern/Arabian name. Being from Israel, and fluently speaking Hebrew, I was able to decipher that: "al havra kris vanin" means approximately: "All friends gather and shout" Allah is the god of Muslim religion, although Freddie himself was Zoroastrian, and not Muslim.

Achtar es na sholei ~~ Now is the time

Mochamut dei ya low eshelei Is probably a part of a prayer aimed at Mohammed, who is believed to have established the Muslim religion.

ai ai ai ai ahelei Is a Zionist folk song, in which ahelei means "my god".

Ist avil ahiln avil ahiln adhim Mustapha, Salaam Aleikum! Is a short prayer, which is used as a greeting to one another.

achbar ish navin ~~ A smart man will understand.

Vontap ist ahiln avil ahiln adhim Mustapha,
Aleikum Salaam hey! ~~ is probably a prayer of farewe

I think in one part of the song he says P.Mohammed (PUH) has brought fresh information. If he has accepted that P.Mohammed (PUH) is the last prophet it looks he accepted Islam before death.
