Ramadan Kareem Crescent moon رمضان كريم Mosque  to those serving this month of fasting 🙂 It’s just been announced  in – Saudi Arabia – that tomorrow is the first day of Ramadan غدًا هو أول أيام رمضان. So, I would like to share with you an old song that celebrates the start of Ramadan. It’s in Egyptian Arabic and it’s called: Ramadan came to us رمضان جانا. The song is uniquely associated with Ramadan and it’s very much the first song that would come to the mind of most Muslims in the Arab world when they think of Ramadan. The post provides the lyrics of the song in Egyptian Arabic and English.
