We come seeking your gaze, eyes impure and blemished from dreams and fantasizing life’s distractions.
While your luminous black eyes, framed by noble long lashes, cast a loving glow illuminating the heavens.
We come searching your smile, mouths sullied and tainted from gossip, backbiting and idle talk.
While the gentleness of your countenance radiates a tranquil aura dispersing all weaknesses.
We come running to you, limbs lazy and heaving as slaves to sloth and consumerist whims.
While your compassionate guiding steps rejuvenate indifferent desires for embracing your Sunnah.
We come greeting you, hands brazenly wretched, time wasting talons clutching fake trinkets.
While you tenderly reach out, your unconditional light of truth obliterating the gloomy darkness.
We come conversing, minds polluted with excessive nonsense, overflowing detritus numbing the soul.
While your sanctified words transform bewilderment to enlightenment.
We come praising your perfection, deeds shamelessly decorated with ostentation and arrogance.
While your dignified station and the bearer of Allah’s promise, endears one to alchemize faults to gold.
We come weeping for your affection, hearts frail, devoid of passion for the Garden’s Eternal Enchantment.
While your presence rouses hopes as you disregard lapses and instill contentment with the mere utterance of your name.
We come addressing you, prayers empty of devotion; a profusion of nagging whispers.
While your worship had no end, a pristine sincerity shining as brightness itself, a beacon for your Ummah.
We come begging from you, relationships smashed, severed, abused and neglected.
While your caress embodied the spirit of justice, a servant of the Majestic, imparting fairness to all.
We come yearning, aching; deeds contrary, a nonillion swarms of disobedience.
While you the preferred one, the emblem of certainty, the holy trusted one, the beloved of Allah, the one brought near to His Divine Presence, our honoured intercessor, sent as a mercy to all the worlds, accept our every Salawaat and Salaam.
Allahumma Salli ‘ala Badrit-Tamaam
Allahumma Salli ‘ala Nuriz-Zalaam
Allahumma Salli ‘ala Miftaahi Daaris-Salaam
Allahumma Salli ‘ala Shafee’i fee Jamee-il Anaam
Allah! Send Blessings upon the Full Moon in brilliance.
Allah! Send Blessings upon the Light overwhelming darkness.
Allah! Send Blessings upon the Key to the Abode of Peace.
Allah! Send Blessings upon the Intercessor of all humanity.
SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam.
‘Jaza Allahu ‘annaa Sayyidina Muhammadin maa huwa ahluhu’
Allah! Grant Sayyidina Muhammad SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam, on behalf of us, his rightful due.
Credit and appreciation once again to the dear sister who has so generously shared this beautiful detail of Bab Baqi, capturing the glint of gold, epitomizing our Prince of Peace SallAllahu alaihi wasallam resting under the Dome of Felicity.
This humble speck is taking ‘leave of absence’ for a short moment. Insha’Allah a few kind words in your Du’a would be greatly appreciated, as I will include you and yours in mine. In the meantime may our hearts be active with Salawaat on our blessed Nabi SallAllahu alaihi wasallam, in these Mubarak Shaban days of his, and our spiritual leanings seeking the blessed month of Ramadhan on the horizon.
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.
