 HHaram

 

Even if it could be written to sit here till the Day of Rising.

The eyes would forever weep, until they rested upon yours.

The hands forever raised, until extended to give you Salam.

The tongue forever moving, until speechless at your countenance.

The feet forever frozen, until walking by your side.

The heart forever wretched, until inflamed by your smile.

The ears forever deaf, until the sound of your voice.

The lights forever bright, until extinguished by your presence.

The soul forever lost, until you cry ‘Ummati Ummati.‘

O Allah! Bestow mercy upon Muhammad equivalent to the amount of all those reciting salaat upon him, and bestow mercy on Muhammad as much as the number of all those who fail to recite salaat on him, and bestow mercy upon Muhammad as You did command us to recite salaat on him, and bestow mercy on Muhammad in the manner that You love the salaat to be recited on him, and bestow mercy on him in the most appropriate manner that salaat should be recited upon him.

Heartfelt gratitude to those who have shared photos for this post, may rewards be piling high for you and yours, Ameen.

All good is from Allah Ta’ala whereas mistakes are from this humble speck. May Allah Ta’ala Bless all readers, bringing you all closer to Him and His Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam. May He accept our humble efforts and grant us the capacity to be good and do good. Ameen.

    1. O Rasul salallahu alaihi wasallam, grant refuge and help for the needy and console the hearts of those filled with love for you.

    2. Sinners we are, drowned in the sea of our iniquity. Yet great is the thirst of our endeavor to
      follow your way.

    3. You are the rain cloud of mercy and your generosity demands that succour be granted to the
      thirsty seeker in search of you.

    4. How wonderful would be that day when to your abode I shall come and blacken my eyes with the dust of Medina. (May the Lord hasten that day of my arrival in Medina, to refresh my eyes with the dust of Medina.)

    5. How wonderful would be that day, when after prayers of thanks, prostration of thanks, my soul I shall fly midst the holy sepulcher?

    6. When in loving madness, cheering heart and overflowing yearning, I shall walk near your blessed grave and the Green Dome.

    7. How glorious that day when from the clouds of my eyes, raindrops of tears shall sprinkle upon the threshold of your haram and your blessed grave.

    ~ Taken from the mathnavi of Maulana Jaami (RA) Full poem here: http://hquk.wordpress.com/2006/05/25/mathnawi-of-maulana-jaami-ra/

    Oh what serene photos – subhan Allah. Umm Fatimah that poem seems to touch many of us.”How glorious that day when from the clouds of my eyes, raindrops of tears shall sprinkle upon the threshold of your haram
    and your blessed grave.”
    Amin to your duas, Khala Noor.

    Wa ‘alaikumus Salam Dear Saima…oh that words could truly express how the heart wants to burst, like the magnificent sentiments of Jaami RA as posted by Umm Fatimah, then maybe my efforts could be called beautiful. Always always you are a breeze of love Dear Irving Darvish! JazakumuLlahu khairan :)
    I feel serenity oozes from the Dome of Felicity regardless of whatever the external conditions may be.
    Dear Ukhti Farah, SubhanAllah!
    And yes Dear t, we have been having sprinkles of rain for days now, each and every drop a mercy, may this mercy flow across the globe eliminating all darkness and gloom from the hearts of the Ummah. Ameen. Love you for the tons of love!
    Heartfelt appreciation for your kindness Dear Umm-e-Shiraaz, Alhumdulillah that love is reciprocated and we can be bonded as an Ummah even when so far away from each other.
    So sweet Ya Ukhti Farah :) …and I love you all so very much too, may our love for each other bring us all together in the Garden, Ameen.
    Wassalamu alaikum
