Sami Yusuf Ya Mustafa

Ya Mustafa by Sami Yusuf – A Classic Live At The Dubai Opera

Sami Yusuf: Ya Mustafa Download | MP3

Sami Yusuf has released a live version of one of his classics – Ya Mustafa.

The track was featured on an early album from Sami Yusuf, and is still going strong.

The idea of live music is something that has been fading away over the years. The introduction of technology, and easy access to VSTIs (virtual instruments) have all contributed to this. It’s nice to see Sami performing live with backing instrumentalists.


The live video can be found below. The MP3 is also available on Amazon.

Sami Yusuf – Ya Mustafa Lyrics

Mustafa, Mustafa, Mustafa.
Ya Mustafa ya Mustafa ya Mustafa – 1
Allahumma salli ‘alal Mustafa
(O Allah send your blessings on the Chosen One)
Mustafa Mustafa Mustafa


You’re our prophet,
Our beloved, – 2
Truly you are,
Most just and kind [x3] – 3


Allahumma salli ‘alal Mustafa
Mustafa Mustafa Mustafa
Ya Mustafa ya Mustafa ya Mustafa
You’re the Guide
Sent by Allah
To lead us
Towards the light [x3] – 4


In your manners
And in your deeds
All the Prophets
You did exceed [x3]
