Ya Oum Allah (Oh Mother of God) by the Lebanese singer Fairouz.

The song is an Arabic Christian hymn in honour of Mary, who is very revered by the various Christian denominations of Lebanon, as well as Muslims.

In Lebanon the feast of the Annunciation is celebrated by both Christians and Muslims under the title ‘Together around Mary, Our Lady’. This makes Mary a unique symbol of unity between the two religious communities.
