Spring Breezes: Shaykh Diya’ ‘Abdul Qadir

Sultan ‘Abdul Hamid’s poem in praise of the Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace) was engraved in the year 1191 AH on the walls of the Prophet’s hujra in his mosque in Medina. Since then some of the verses have been removed. The full version can still be found in the book of Shaykh Muhammad ibn `Alawi Al Maliki titled Shifa’ Al Fu’ad bi Ziyarati Khayr Al `Ibad (Healing the heart with the visitation of the best of Allah’s servants).

Following are the first three lines of the poem:

ya sayyidi ya rasulallahi khudh bi yadi
ma li siwaka wa la alwi `ala ahadi

Oh my master, Oh Messenger of Allah, take my hand:
I have none besides you, nor will I pause to rely on anyone but you.

fa anta nur al huda fi kulli ka’inatin
wa anta sirru al nada ya khayra mu`tamadi

For you are the light of guidance in everything that exists
and you are the secret of munificence and the best reliance.

wa anta haqqan ghiyathu al khalqi ajma`ihim
wa anta hadi al wara lillahi dhi al madadi

And you are in truth the helper of all creation,
and you are the guide of mortals to Allah, Owner of help.

He reached the highest stations by his perfection

He uncovered darkness by his beauty

His traits were all made most excellent.

Send blessings upon him and his folk!

Blessing on the Prophet, his famiy and his Companions.
