Resplendent beneath flaming skies
a pastiche of swirls and spirals
Your brushstrokes of vibrancy and hope
paint the most neglectful soul
Swirls and spirals surround your abode,
as swirls of salutations spiral from around the globe
chants from hearts passionately drunk with your pristine light
an eminence no barriers can conceal.
A fragrance impossible to suppress
as multitudinous angel wings
sprinkle the earth and heavens
with impregnated dust
more precious than the entire creation
gathered from their never ceasing visits.
Ya Rabb! Caress the Taj of mankind, crowned by the qubba green.
Ya Rabb! Bless the flag bearer of righteousness whose name You inscribed on Your Arsh.
Ya Rabb! Shower Your favours on Your treasure whose name accompanies Yours in Salat, in the Adhan, in the Kalimah.
Ya Rabb! Bestow Your choicest praises on the one You have honoured in Your Sacred Speech,
Ya Rabb! Adorn Your Beloved, the first to ever be blessed by Your first ever blessing.
Ya Rabb! Raise Your Habib to a station far beyond the leaves of the tress in Your Garden that bear his name.
Ya Rabb! Glorify Your messenger, the spirit of justice, the bringer of peace, wisdom and truth, the paragon of all virtues.
Ya Rabb! As a Muharram gift unlock the shackles that hinder our closeness to Your shining star.
Our Lord! We believe in what You have Revealed and we follow the Messenger, so write us down among those who bear witness. (3:53)
Ya Rabb! Etch the name of Your illustrious one in our hearts just as he has Your name embellished on his.
Ya Rabb! Bless us with an intimate nearness.
Bless Bless Bless this new year
By painting hearts with fiery flames of infatuation
Ameen, Ameen, Ameen.
JazaLlahu anna Sayyidina Muhammadun salaAllahu alayhi wasalama maa huwa ahluhu.
