expressions, Habibullah SallAllahu alaihi wasallam, Rabi'alAwwal 1436, salawaat

…winter perched on the windowsill…

By In


Dome Madinah Rabial Awwal 1435

winter perched on the windowsill

clutching a hurriedly packed suitcase

of assorted frosty attire

flapping in a final icy breath

blowing a cursory chilly kiss

then flew away

soon sprinting through a sun raked halo

passing spring along the way

with its welcoming budding rose buds

greetings exchanged

across masses of angel wings

remembering and rejoicing

of the choicest rose to ever bloom

a celebratory sky of roiling burgundy brilliance

turning to an imperial violet

as heavens filled with a celestial chorus chanting




unfathomable multitudes of stars exploding

illuminating as never before

a piercing beam

focused on one small chosen place

blessing the entire universe

with the rarest of diamond-opal-pearl-saphire-gems

sparkling and dazzling

hearts of mankind

until earth is folded



enlightenment of souls

whose sword of light slices

tangled webs of forgetfulness and labyrinths of confusion


we seek the brilliance of your lamp of intercession

as we glorify the Source of all Praise

for His ultimate chosen Bounty SallAllahu alaihi wasallam upon us.

O Allah! May Your grace, peace and blessings rest on Muhammad, our Master, who opens that which is closed, and closes that which is preceded, who helps truth with truth, and who guided mankind to Your straight path. May blessings of Allah be on him and his Family and Companions as according to his exalted position befitting his merit and his high rank. Ameen Ameen Ameen.

    Sometimes we come in search, thirsty for the words we need either for ourselves or loved ones. We call out to the beloved sallallahu alaihi wa sallam especially on this day of days in the month of months with full hope and know he hears our call. For he is the mercy to the worlds. We long to see his most radiant smile or the gentlest hand upon our heads one day. Allahumma salli alai
    On this blessed day much love is sent to you the bearer of beautiful duas to sweeten the heart and tongue. Allah bless you and keep you safe dear one and Rabial Anwar Mubarak to you all in the most blessed of lands. I pray to meet you soon. AMEEN
