In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful and Compassionate

All praise to Allah, Lord of the Worlds. And salutations and greetings upon our Master Muhammad and upon his family and companions.

Allahumma Amin. Allahumma Amin. Allahumma Amin.


Firstly I seek my Lord’s forgiveness,

For my words cannot explain the Rasul’s perfectness.

My flawed state can’t ever adequately raise,

Or sufficiently extol the one named praise.

The Magnificent, The Great, The Sublime, The King,

Sends salutations on the one born in spring,

In Allah’s sunnah is a priceless blessing.

Knowing this, what better to say?

Except these words to take you on the Way:


Allah humma sali ala Muhammad


Light upon light,

Oh! What a beautiful sight!

In this great fact do the sahabah unite.

How bright is our Rasul!

Never was he under the sun’s rule.

How can this be? I hear you enquire,

He cast no shadow – such was his light the sun retires!

So continue with your blessings on he,

The master of those who came and are to be

And all the while fulfill Allah’s decree!


Allah humma sali ala Muhammad


Trees wept in his absence,

Mothers came to his defence.

The sun and moon at his blessed fingertips,

Nothing but Al Haqq on his lips.

The stones could not help themselves,

On the pure soul did they delve

In sending salutations and receiving too.

Oh man, what then can be said of you!

Recite, rejoice and emulate him,

For only then will you become a true Muslim!


Allah humma sali ala Muhammad


Ummati, ummati is his ever-longing cry,

Even though his invites are to the highest sky,

His thought is of us and our spiritual state,

On the Day of Reckoning when we shall meet our fate.

My mother and father can’t even rescue me then,

Only Muhammad ﷺ the greatest of men.

At the scale, bridge and pool will he intercede,

In the hour of my greatest need.

What sort of love is that of his?

The habeeb of the One who says, ‘Be, and it is’.


Allah humma sali ala Muhammad
