Prayers on the Prophet: Part One

Allah bless him and grant him peace, by Novid Shaid

February, 2011, Rabbi Al Awwal, 1432

……..

A humble homage to Al Dalailul Khayrat Part One

………

Oh Lord, send Your peace and blessings ad infinitum,

upon Our Master and Liege Lord Muhammad,

whose face glows like the full moon,

whose smile dispels anguish and gloom

with locks like strands of silk woven from a heavenly loom

with eyes penetrating, and radiating certitude

with perspiration of the rarest perfumes

with tears brimming with love and gratitude

the one who smiled in the face of ridicule

the one who endured the curses of withering fools

the one whose face softened when he met

orphans, children, the poor and the bereft

the one who gave to those who withheld

the one who served others before himself

who stood in prayer until his ankles swelled

who implored his Lord, deep in the night, while others slept

the final one to receive the Word through Jibril,

the only one who humbled the might of Azrael,

flag-bearer of Musa, Isa and Ibrahim

restorer of the light of Hajar and Ismail

and the moon split asunder at his behest,

and the sun turned back at his request,

and the spider’s web and the dove that built its nest

and the heartbroken palm tree and the Jinn who were his guests

chosen above the whole universe

shown the face of God without hindrance

promoted above the multitude of mankind

the Prophets, the saints and the divines,

the supreme intercessor at the end of time,

humbled by the pure presence of his Lord,

sobered by the lights of Oneness of his Lord.

and his children, the diamonds of his heart,

the first to meet him in jannah, beloved Fatimah!

and his blessed parents, Abdullah and Aminah

and his cloak he spread for gentle Halimah

and his wives, sweethearts and counterparts

with the youth of Aisha and the wisdom of Khadijah

and his companions of devotion and humbled glance

in Badr, Uhud and Khandaq, their faith enhanced

the Prophet, so longing for the sweetness of Ramadan

for the taste of Zamzam and the echoes of Quran

for the coolness of his eyes in dua

for the choruses of the angels from afar

the true servant of Ar Rahman!

the first and last love of Ar Rahman!

the splendour of Allah!

the wonder of Allah!

the gatekeeper of Allah!

the wayfarer of Allah!

navigator to Allah!

the liberator from Allah!

the final messenger of Allah!

the one who follows him

follows Allah,

the one who spurns him,

spurns Allah.

an nabi,

the priceless key!

the boundless sea!

the pinnacle of mercy!

the mirror of Divine decree!

the Arabian, uniting the tribes and races of humanity!

Oh Lord, Allah, Most High, send your prayers and peace

upon our Master Muhammad, free of hatred and caprice

by the number of fish, swimming in the seas!

Oh Lord Allah Most High, send your prayers and peace

upon our Master Muhammad, free of hatred and caprice

by the number of plants blowing in the breeze!

Oh Lord Allah Most High, send your prayers and peace

upon our Master Muhammad, free of hatred and caprice

by the number of leaves that grow in every tree!

Oh Lord Allah Most High, send Your prayers and peace

upon our Master Muhammad, free of hatred and caprice

by the number of people that ever walked and breathed!

Oh Lord Allah Most High, send Your prayers and peace

upon our Master Muhammad, free of hatred and caprice

by the number of rocks, piece by piece.

Oh Allah, send your prayers and unrelenting salaam

upon the Master of the Messengers, the Seer of Islam,

and through this blessing, instil us with patience and calm

and deliver us and our families from harm.

And finally we pray, Allah Almighty,

bless the spirit of our inspirer Al Jazuli,

for reciting his Dalail, make us worthy,

through it, bless us with health and security.
