……..
A humble homage to Al Dalailul Khayrat
………
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 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 longevity.

I donate any Thawaab gained from this poem to my wife.
