Part 1 (Remix)

The first part of the remix features:

  • Diddy
  • Ron Browz (hook and his own verse)
  • Swizz Beatz
  • T-Pain
  • Akon
  • Lil’ Wayne

The first part of the remix was released on Thanksgiving (November 27, 2008). Ron Browz, Akon, T-Pain and Lil Wayne all use the auto-tune effect in it. Also Busta Rhymes does the main part of the hook differently and Ron Browz pronounced Arab money differently with an accent on the “A”s. Therefore, A-Rab would be pronounced O(as in short O)- Rob.

Unlike the original, actual Arabic is used in the chorus and by the artists in their verses.

  • Chorus: “Bismillāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm. Al ḥamdu lillāhi rabbi l-’ālamīn”
    • Translation: “In the name of Allah (God), most gracious most merciful. All Praise is due to Allah, Lord of the worlds.
  • Busta Rhymes: “As-Salamu Alaykum Warahmatullah Wa Barakatu”
    • Translation: “Peace be upon you” (A Greeting)
  • Diddy: “Alhamdulillah”
    • Translation: “Praise to Allah (God)”
  • Swizz Beatz: “Habibi”
    • Translation: “My Love”
  • Akon: “Bismillāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm”
    • Translation: “In the name of Allah (God), most gracious most merciful.”

The song has caused controversy amongst Muslims, with it being labeled as “offensive” and “racist”.

The second part of the remix is still in the making. It is unknown who is going to be in it.
