Ujuntuk oo tuibit feek,
Rub il maseeh ee baarek feek.
Mitil mah rikbit fee urduk,
Irbuk fee mujunuk wud yeed.
As I tired in kneading you,
May the Lord give His blessing.
As you grew in the ground,
May you grow in your rising and be bountiful.
This prayer was said by my mother, Wadia Turk, when she made sfeeha dough. She would make the sign of the cross in the dough when she completed it, and before setting it to rise. It is submitted in loving memory of her.
