Inama Nushif ("She is Eternal") is a track from the Children of Dune soundtrack of the 2003 Sci Fi channel mini-series Frank Herbert's Children of Dune. The track can be heard during the "Cleansing of the House" montage, in which Leto II and Ghanima are born and various loose ends are tied up, removing possible threats to House Atreides and Paul Muad'Dib.

It is sung entirely in the Fremen language by singer Azam Ali.

LyricsEdit

The lyrics and score were both written by Brian Tyler, who composed the soundtrack for the mini-series. In the liner notes miniseries director Greg Yaitanes wrote that Tyler pieced the lyrics together from excerpts of Fremen that appear throughout the Dune novels.

Actually, "Fremen" is scarce in Herbert's books (the fragments given being actually in various dialects of Arabic) and is fully described in The Dune Encyclopedia; the song is an alteration of a speech by Muad'dib published there, expanded (with words added, changed or taken out) and with a totally new meaning (which actually means Tyler's Fremen is totally different meaningwise from Arabic). The original text's first lines are "Innama nishuf"
