    My Opinionhaha
    this song has no meaning if we're lookin n interprete it word by word..
    but for me,religionally,this song is quite controversial as it makes fun of muslim societies.
    im a muslim and i know the meaning of the arabic words in this lyric(although the other languages im not quite sure..)
    you see,ALLAH is GOD for all creations(humans,plants,animals etc),so ALLAh will not pray for Mustapha Ibrahim(n also for us) instead we as HIS creation must pray for HIS mercy n blessings because HE controls everything n none other will make harm to HIM.so,it doesnt make sense for ALLAH to pray for Mustapha Ibrahim instead of Mustapha Ibrahim must pray for himself to ALLAH.this is totally wrong n misinterpretation in islam's teachings..
    Freddie shouldnt made fun of muslims' sensitivity.
    The melody n music of this song is brillianty amusing but im totally disagree with freddie's insensitivity towards others.i know its all about music(i love Queen anyway!)but if we can make music that doesnt touch any sensitivity issues,why dont we?
    besides,music is a tool for peace,unity n harmony,right?so,i think that everyone should consider my sensitivity towards this lyric.anyway,im very openminded n if anyone has any other opinion,just comment..
    peace(",)V

    General Commentjeez this place is full of flipping idiots.
    First of all, Farrokh Bulsara AKA Freddie Mercury is biologically PARSI, not FARSI. Parsis are inherently from Iran, but they kinda traveled.
    He is not Indian, though did spend many years there.
    This song is in English, Arabic, and Parsi. Arabic is few; there is the greeting salaam aleikum and its reply aleikum salaam(upon you be peace). mustapha ibrahim is an arabic name. I doubt Freddie knows Arabic though, there are a few mispronounciations. I have been looking for an exact translaiton to the parsi part of this song. UBt the jist of it is either religious, advising an arabic man, or is simply a satire of some sort.
    But, THIS SONG IS FRICKING AMAZING!!. oh the voice, the background music, the middle-eastern style of it...beautiful.

    General Commenthi guys, i'm an Iranian ,I know Farsi completely and as much as i'v undrestood the line AKHTARESH NA SHOLEI means HIS STAR NOT HIS FLAME and "AKHBARESH NAVIN" means "HIS NEWS OR INFORMATION ARE RECENT AND UPDATED" & "IST AVIL AHLIN AVIL AHLIN ADHIM MUSTAPHA" which the correct sentence is "AST AVAL AHLAN AVAL AHLAN ADAM MUSTAPHA" means "AT FIRST MUSTAPHA IS A HUMAN" and all of the rest is nonsens.although the meaning of ALLAH & ALEIKUM SALAM is known to everyone & it's taken for granted . I think freddie had written this lyric just to showoff his nationality although I'm sure he didn't know Farsi. BLESS HIM ......

    General CommentMustapha Ibrahim is just a name...
    Aleikum Salaam means hi, how are you.
    Not sure what the other stuff means.
    It's Arabic.
    I really like this song. It's groovy.
