Talbiyah

Talbiyah

The Talbiyah is a Muslim prayer invoked by the pilgrims as a conviction that they intend to perform the Hajj only for the glory of God. Talbiyah is repeatedly invoked during the Hajj, or pilgrimage, upon putting on the Ihram, so the pilgrims can purify and rid themselves of worldly concerns.

The text of the talbiyah is:

Labbaika Allahomma Labbaik. Labbaik La Shareeka Laka Labbaik. Innal-Hamdah, Wan-Nematah, Laka wal Mulk, La Shareeka Laka.

IPA pronunciation:

[læbːæık allˤaːhʊmːæ læbːæık læbːæıkæ læː ʃæriːkæ lækæ læbːæık ʔĩnːælћæmdæ wǣnːıʕmætæ lækæ wælmʊlk læː ʃæriːkæ læk]

translated as:

"Here I am at Thy service O Lord, here I am. Here I am at Thy service and Thou hast no partners. Thine alone is All Praise and All Bounty, and Thine alone is The Sovereignty. Thou hast no partners."

The Shia version of the talbiyah is exactly the same as the Sunni one but ends with an extra "Labbaik."
