Poem of Visitation to Our Guide the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ)

Poem of Visitation to Our Guide the Holy Prophet Muhammad:

From a fascicle entitled -al-Mada’ih al-Maqbula al-Muhabbabatu lil-Qulub al-‘Amira fi Ziyarat al-Nabi Salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa-Sallama wal-Rawdati al-Tahira (“The Agreeable Praises Beloved to Flourishing Hearts in the Visitation of the Prophet and the Pure Rawda”) by Shaykh Salih al-Madani al-Azhari (Allah have mercy on him). Ramadan: 1374/1955.

From the library of Mawlana al-Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani (Allah grant him long life and health). Gifted to him by the author’s son, ‘Abd al-Malik Salih al-‘Umari, director of al-Madrasat al-Bakriyya, al-Qudus al-Sharif.

Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim

Salatullah Salamullah
‘ala al-Hadi Rasulillah

Salatullah Salamullah
‘ala al-Hadi Habibillah

To the abode of eternity we have come
And the elect one we have visited
And in the Grove we have prayed
And we have seen Rasulallah.

I saw the people in droves
The sea of their love surge like waves
The tears of longing like cool rain
All in love with Rasulillah

So we visited him the Pure-hearted
Of greatest rank and nearness to Allah
Whoever bears him loyal love
Becomes filled with Rasulillah

Seeing him is joy followed by joy
While incense wafts and overflows
We have witnessed Rasulallah

We have obtained intimacy
By Divine grace without the veils
We visited the Arabian liegelord
Abu al-Qasim Rasulallah

Souls are swayed by their Creator
Before the Chosen One their guide
They have received their dearest hopes
At witnessing Rasulallah

Our consolation an undying love
At al-Mustafa’s doorstep we arrived
The connection of hearts is sealed
With al-Hadi Rasulillah

The Paradises of creation ours
By coming and greeting Ta Ha
The soul of love enlivened them
With help from Rasulillah

The blessing of Allah like rain
On the Elect of highest fame
And Companions all radiant chiefs
And the House of Rasulillah

For as long as what Salih published
Of al-Mustafa’s praise is sung
And the faces of lovers beam
With light from Rasulillah!
