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

Mustapha, hey! Mustapha
Mustapha Mustapha - Allah-i na stolei
Mustapha Mustapha - Achtar es na sholei
Mustapha Mustapha - Mohammad dei ya low eshelei
Ist avil ahiln avil ahiln adhim Mustapha,
Mustapha Ibrahim, achbar ish navin

Vontap ist ahiln avil ahiln adhim Mustapha,

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
