Author Biography:
Shaykh Zainuddeen Ibn Ali Ibn Ahmad Al-Mabari Al-
Shafii was born in the Islamic calendar year 872 after
Hijrah, 1476 CE in Kochi, Kerala, located in the region of
southern India. He was a polymath, a great scholar,
spiritual shaykh, jurist, prolific writer, commited poet,
dedicated warrior, conservative follower of the Usuli
school of Islamic interpretation, and the founding father
of the traditional Dars-I-Nizami system in Kerala. His
family trace their origin back to the descendants of the
first caliph of the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessing
of Allah be upon him, Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq, may Allah be
pleased with him. On the 6
th
year of Hijra year, he and his
family left their native country of Yemen, and came to
India for the sole purpose of propagating Islam.
Shaykh Zainuddeen Maqdm first completed his formal
education with his uncle, shaykh Zainuddeen Ibraheem
al-Mabari. He studied fiqh, Islamic jurisprudence at Calicut
under the auspices of the great Shaykh and well known
jurist, Faqruddeen Abu Bakr Ibn Al-Qadi Ramadan al-
Shaliyathi. Shaykh Maqdm then studied the sacred
science of hadith, Prophetic traditions, in Egypt under
Qadi Abdur Rahman Al-Misri for five years. He was
officially granted an jaza, the authority to transmit the
Islamic knowledge of hadith, and likewise the authority to
transmit tafsr, Quranic exegesis and received further
exemplerary qualifications in fiqh. He studied under other

jurisprudence to the esoteric science of tasawwuf, Sufism.
It is detailed that the shaykh was initially conflicted as to
which aspect he should prefer most, either jurisprudence
or Sufism in his scholarly life. He was reportedly
spiritually transformed from a dream, and reached an
answer inspired by Allah. It was said to him in a dream
that if one wants to reach the other side of the bank of a
flowing river, he should start swimming from that spot
nearest to the other side. Maqdm understood from his
dream that he should prefer tasawwuf than fiqh. He came
to the realisation that fiqh would teach us how to live
according to the halal, the permissible, and Sufism would
direct us to live with taqwa, complete obesiance. He was
entirely changed and wrote his famous and popular
magnum opus in tasawwuf , Hidayat Al-Azkiya Guidance
for the Intelligent. He passed away in the year 928 Hijra
of the Islamic calendar, 1522CE in Ponnani, Malappuram,
Kerala. He was buried at Ponnani cemetery close to the
local mosque.
Shaykh Zainuddeen Maqdm, along with the Manqs
Mawlid, penned many other great works including;
Murshid Al-Tullab ila Al-Kareem Al-Wahhab,
Councillor to the Seekers of Knowledge To the
Way of The Generous, The Giver
Siraj Al-Qulb wa Ilaj Al-Dunb, Illumination of
Hearts and The Cure for Iniquities
Tuhfat Al-Ahibba, Gift of Lovers
great contemporary scholars in Egypt such as Shaykh
Shamsuddeen Al-Joujari, and he was blessed with the
spiritual care and guidance of Shaykh Zakariyya Al-Ansar,
the spiritual guide of Ibn Hajar Al-Haytami, the great Shafii
scholar considered one of the most knowledgable
amongst his peers, may Allah be pleased with all of them.
Shaykh Zainuddeen Maqdm showed his utmost interest
in serving his guide, Zakariyya Al-Ansar, a selfless service
that left the shaykh well satisfied with his student. On one
occasion, when Zainuddeen Maqdm went outside to
collect some feed for the horse of his teacher, he began
to hear the trees and foliage surrounding him,
supplicating and praising Allah. He returned to his
teacher and promptly informed him over what had
happened. The teacher said to him you are not Qadim,
one who serves, instead you are Maqdm, the served
one. From that time onwards his family was honorably
titled as Maqdm.
After Shaykh Maqdm finished his inspiring education
in Egypt, he returned to his newly settled home country
Ponnani, located in the Indian state of Kerala. He founded
an Islamic university in Ponnani, where he became a
teacher, mentor and a leading spiritual shaykh to the
Muslims in Kerala. When the Portuguese sent their
imperial forces and invaded the southernmost part of
the Indian subcontinent, he inspired the people to fight
against them for the freedom of independence. Islamic
historians record an incident regarding his changing
priorities from an earlier exoteric focus on fiqh, Islamic

Translators Preface
It was my desire to translate the Manqs Mawlid
(The Nativity of the Holy Prophet: an abridged version)
into English. Throughout southern India, with Kerala in
particular, there has always been a blessed connection
with wonderfully exceptional living Prophetic and
scholarly tradition. The Companions of the Holy Prophet,
may Allah be pleased with them, arrived in this state
during the Prophets lifetime, may Allahs peace and
blessings be upon him, with the sole intention of
propagating Islam. Islam spread in peace and in a
relatively short span of time. When those companions
arrived in this state, long before Islam was spread in the
northern regions of India, Hindus hosted and welcomed
them. The Hindu communities were attracted to their
immaculate character, and wholeheartedly embraced the
religion of Islam.
The mosques they built fourteen centuries ago in
Kerala, still play key roles for the spiritual enlightenment
of local people. It was the part of the tradition of the
people in the state to recite different Mawlids at their
homes. The Mawlid is a mixture of prose and poetry in
praise of the Holy Prophet, may the peace and blessings
of Allah be upon him, each with particular meter, rhyme
and rhythm. Occasionally they would have choruses to
perform beautiful renditions. This particular custom is
not too common in English speaking Islamic world. I
sincerely hope this translation will help the Muslims living

extend my gratitude to M A Yosuf Ali Sir for his generous
support and splendid inspiration.I also must thank my
best friend and colleague, Mubaroque Shah who has
kindly edited this whole work with his constructive
suggestions and meticulous corrections. I must also show
my gratitude to my colleagues, Zubair Noorani, Abdal
Rahman Noorani, Ismail Noorani and Abdal Azeez EV for
their relentless efforts to make this project real. Above
all, I owe much to my parents, Muhammad Fizy and Ummu
Kulsoom for their sacrifice, constant motivation and
patience. May Allah grant all who have been mentioned
here and us, his mercy and make us among those who
benefit from this work. Where I have succeeded it is by
the absolute mercy of Allah, and where I faltered it is from
my own mistakes.
in the English speaking world to be exposed to a long
established tradition and become familiar with it. There
are plenty of popular Mawlids to be found in Kerala, but I
selected this mawlid in particular for translation, because
this is perhaps the most popular mawlid locally among
people in Kerala. This was also written by a great shaykh
of spirituality, who figures among the early pioneers for
the tradition of Islamic scholarship in this beautiful state.
This Mawlid is named Al-Manqs, which literally means,
the concise one, because this mawlid is considered to be
a concise version of the Mawlid Subhana, written by one
of the greatest Muslim theologians who ever lived, Imam
Al-Ghazzali, may Allah be pleased with him, and benefit
us with the knowledge he imparted.
I would welcome any advice and thoughtful
suggestion to improve this translation. This cannot be
considered a literal translation since the English language
cannot contain the richness of the Arabic language, it was
a hard task for me to access some flavour of the poetry
in translation. I sincerely apologise to the entire
readership for that failing. I am very grateful to many
people who have helped me to prepare this project, and
I am truly unable to mention them all. I owe my great
debt to my teachers who have given me the indescribable
taste of Islamic scholarship, the faculties of Madeenathu
nnoor College of Islamic Science,Markaz Garden, Poonoor
including Shaykh Dr Abdal Hakeem Al Azhary, Shaykh
Ali Al-Ahsani, Shaykh Muhyuddin Al-Saqafi, Shaykh
Muhyuddin Al-Saqafi Kavanoor and so on. I should deeply

the composition of the Manqs Mawlid will clearly reveal
to us, the true necessity of such a timeless work. A
contemporary analysis on the current revival of the
spiritual legacy of Islamic tradition necessitates the
translation of such a work in the current secularised
climate. The poorest section of society in the south Indian
state of Kerala, were severely afflicted and diseased by
infectious plague, and thousands died in those epidemics.
They had no advanced medical facilities or treatment
available at that time except through spiritual means. The
destitute approached their Shaykh Zainuddeen Maqdm,
the author of the Manqs Mawlid for a spiritual cure. He
wrote this Mawlid and advised them to read it at every
home. By the will of Allah, the plague was expunged and
peoples lives returned to normal. Modern diseases effect
us on a more spiritual plane than a physical one, and it is
universally applicable. The disease of total reliance on
secular modernity and functionalism is deeply rooted in
todays world. If we fail to cure this aggressive secular
modernist worldview, it will spread in the East faster, and
all societies will wander deprived of their spiritual soul.
In this chaotic context, the West is, in my argument, most
unable to survive without the Prophet, may the peace
and blessings of Allah be upon him, alongside the best of
tradition, religion and spirituality.
Science advances at a rapid pace and we are
blessed with the ability to reap the benefits of
extraordinary facilities, procedures and treatments.
However, when a soulless modernity engulfs the totality
Introduction
Human beings in the Holy Quran are constantly
encouraged to devoutly believe in their Lord and Saviour,
Allah, and to remain steadfast throughout their daily lives.
However, our actions, no matter how consistent, do not
necessarily match up with the blessings Allah has
bestowed upon us. In the Ashari school of thought, every
action in the universe is perpetually created in the
minutiae of each, individual moment. Traditional Islamic
scholarship has explained the wisdom behind this
principle. They state that Allah breathes His mercy
towards His creation in each moment and it will continue
everlasting, as an expression of His absolute mercy. Good
deeds are necessary for our salvation, but they are not
sufficient. The ultimate hope of all creation rests on the
generous and independent mercy and grace of Allah to
His creation. We are in a constant state of doubt regarding
our salvation. Therefore, keeping a balance between fear
in Allahs wrath and hope in His mercy is an important
step towards ones spiritual enlightenment and
transformation. The Nativity of the Holy Prophet, his
tradition, and spiritual intuition emanates from his
infallible legacy, may the peace and blessing of Allah be
upon him, which are the most significant and contributive
factors in acquiring the mercy and grace of Our Lord
and Saviour.
The Holy Prophet remains relevant, even in the
context of Western, secular modernity. The story behind

It is not beyond our
comprehension to predict that todays impression of
secular modernity has the same face as in Greco-Roman
culture, and is doomed to fade away simply to be replaced
by some other, more current ideology in the future.
However, when we look at the origin of every civilisation,
we find that the most significant wellsprings of global and
universal culture is constituted by the prophets and
philosophers. The original source of every civilization
which has existed in the past has been reshaped and
reworked by the unparalleled creativeness of that
indomitable prophetic and philosophical spirit. The social
ideals existant in the world express two basic yet
distinctive components: a scientific mode of cognition and
those systematic ethics formalised as religion. The
philosophers represents the former, the prophets remain
the symbol of the latter. These two basic orientations
fluctuated in world history with conflict and interaction.
4
This balance of scientific and religious spirit was
impeccably kept in major Islamic civilisations. However,
unfortunately we lacking this spirit in the modern world,
that is the crisis we now face. The common conception
of a secular modernity throughout recent history has lost
this religious connection, and its inexplicable

of peoples lives, it actually divorces them from the natural
world. The artificial world of corrupt capitalism cannot
replace a natural harmony with the world and tradition,
because humans instinctively reach for a spiritual source,
one augmented to their fitra, natural disposition. William
Butler Yeats presented the image of a secular, modern
society as a society turned upside down, heading towards
self destruction and chaos. In his celebrated poem The
Second Coming, Yeats famously spoke those oft-repeated
lines, The best lack all conviction, while the worst are
full of passionate intensity.
1
This danger was precisely
recognised by the Holy Quran as well, in Surah Al-
Takkathur, Allah says Competition and worldly increase
diverts you until you visit the graveyards.
2
This
competition can now be seen to mean the excesses of
capitalism and functionalist thought in our societies.
In this spiritual crisis what does tradition and the
Prophetic legacy offer? Should religion become more
secular and end up ensconsed in completely secularist
values? Should all Eastern tradition embrace the values
the West has pioneered? What is the religious worldview
regarding these issues? These are the question we
Muslims should be able to answer with certitude.
Professor Anthony Giddens identifies the idea of
modernity, to be [a] certain set of attitudes towards the
world, the idea of the world as open to transformation by
humanintervention, a complex of economic institution,
especially industrial production and the market economy

Plato understood human beings purely on the basis of
rational faculties. On the other hand, Heraclitus and
Epicurus interpreted Man as wholly part of nature.
Modern philosophers similarly fall into the same ancient
pitfalls of human error. They are either overly idealistic
or overly naturalistic. In their idealism, they lose the
finiteness of human nature by elevating the self as
understood with human reason. In naturalism, they
interpret every aspect of humanity with reference to
tangible nature.

. Both positions are unbalanced with
regards to mans unfathomable nature. In modern times,
ancient naturalism expresses itself in every version of
capitalism and communism.
Islamic tradition realises the importance of both nature
and spirit in the development of every civilisation. Society
would then be under the dominion of nature, but at the
same time it would be able to transcend its nature
simultaneously. The collective consciousness of society
which is directed towards this inevitable convergence will
help them to recognise and identify the constant
intervention of a supernatural agent in their whole
aggregate interventions, and bulwarks their faith in the
face of absolute rationality.
Not only does Islamic traditions recognise the lack of
spirituality in society, major sociologists also speak about
the dangers of posed by current worldviews. Professor
Antony Giddens pioneered the idea of reflective

consequences are far reaching without preventative
measures in place. The European Enlightenment and
3
Reformation played major roles in embracing the secular
modernity of the West, and its subsequent exportation
throughout the whole world, is a direct result of
international globalisation. The prophets were repeatedly
sent to re-establish the relationship to regenerate the
intuition of spirituality in different forms of idealism,
emergent in various cultures of our past. However, after
each prophets earthly missions were sealed, revivalists
were designated by God at the turn of every century to
rejuvenate Islam and remove any extraneous elements
from the pure and purifying faith.
They restored spirituality in variant schools of
philosophy and combined the discipline with impeccable
religiosity. The only possible way to escape from feelings
of materialistic nothingness, depraved illusions and
bombastic trumpeting of superiority is an ethical
reconstruction of modern society by creative, religious
imagination and eclectic spirituality. The philosophical
legacy of Imam Al-Ghazzali, Zainudden Maqdm and other
revivalists play an important role in this process.
Religions and traditions have always had something new
to offer to every civilization and that has been their
driving force. This revivalism is a force Islam always
encourages and inspires us with to reach higher levels of
civilisation unlike the tired force of secular modernity,
the spent product of Western philosophy being
reprocessed over and over again.

It is necessary for the improvement of Western societies
to reassess current destructive paradigms and return to
a balance of tradition and spirituality. Otherwise, it will
end up spiritually destitute before it even realises the
consequences. Islamic traditions do not simply critique
modernity, rather it deconstructs dangerous arguments
that are entirely secular and neglect spirituality. The
reason is that an artificial world of delusion takes us away
from a complimentary natural world. Our natural
disposition only recognises that natural element and
struggles to cope with overridingly perverse influences.
The artifice of inhumane force veils the human spirit, and
as a result we would be forever deluded. Everyone,
regardless of their background must seek to return to
their spiritual source for the survival of our humanity.
We will then accomplish all our responsibilities towards
every future generation.

sociology as a science of the present (moving beyond
the early 20th century. conceptual framework); and to
provide a counterbalance to the postmodernist paradigm
offering a re-constructive view alongside deconstruction.

The main reason behind this is that secular modernity
currently has the same features and manifestations Karl
Marx, Emile Durkheim and Max Weber had proposed.
The major transformative force which shaped secular
modernity to Karl Marx was capitalism. Both Durkheim
and Weber traced the nature of modernity to the global
impact of industrialism. It clearly goes without saying that
the dominant factor which shaped the current worldview
is both capitalism and industrialism

experience for this well centred understanding.

Introduction:
Praise be to Allah who unveiled in the month of Rabi al Awwal,
the Moon of Prophetic Guidance. He displayed his radiance
before the creating the worlds, and He divinely bestowed him
the name of Muhammad. He brought him into existence near
the end of time as He had ordained. He manifested within him,
unblemished beauty and conferred this elegance to him alone.
So he was the one born with the face that humbled the moon
and the stars in their humility. Surely Adam, peace be upon
him, entreated Him through his intercession was spiritually
delivered and was honoured to be his forefather. Nuh, peace
be upon him, appealed to Allah through his lofty station and
was protected from the Flood. His spiritual presence with
Ibrahim, peace be upon him, delivered him from the blazing
fire when he was hurled into its hearth; its flames housed him
safely. His mother, Amina, when she carried him, had seen the
frequent company of the angels and the prophets. They spoke
to her, giving the glad tidings of a son, the sun of salvation and
deliverance, and reminded her to name him Muhammad. Allah,
The Exalted, The Esteemed, spoke There has certainly

him is what you suffer; [he is] concerned over you and to the
believers is kind and merciful.
It is reported from the Prophet, I was a primordial
light in the presence of Allah; the Exalted, The Esteemed, before
the creation of Adam while the angels constantly sent their
salutations. Then Adam, peace be upon him, was created from
a clay mixed with that light and I was brought into the cosmos
with him. I was present with Nuh, peace be upon him, in his
ark and with Ibrahim, peace be upon him, when he was cast in
the heat of the fire. Lastly I was transferred through
magnificent, immaculate and chaste generations and finally I
was born to my parents.

The Prophetic Arrival:
It is narrated from Kab Al-Ahbar, may Allah be pleased with
him, that Allah decided to manifest the treasured light and
preserved pearl from Abdullah into Amina, the most virtuous
and chaste woman in Arabia. In the month of Rajab, Allah
directed the angel Ridwan, the guardian of Paradise to open
the gates of the Heavens. The women of Paradise and its
immortal children embellished and beautified themselves. They
were delighted by the glad tidings of joy and happiness. The
heavenly morning stars gleamed. The appointed herald in
Heaven and Earth gave assurance about the appearance of the
preserved light in Amina. The light of the Prophet, peace and
blessings be upon him, was transported from Abdullah into the
womb of Amina. The Divine Throne trembled in its celebration
and delight. The Throne increased in dignity and solemnity,
illuminations captivated the entire heavens and the angels
glorified and venerated God. Her illumined face reflected true
courage and bravery. She was touched by no fear, pain or
discomfort as other women in that state. Her body mirrored
the signs of the Prophetic arrival.

All creation rejoiced within their inner state and she
was greeted by the angels in the month of Rajab. Glad tidings
were given to her in the month of Shaban about the awaited,
triumphal prodigy. She was informed in the blessed month of
Ramadan that she carries the purified and protected child. In
the month of Shawwal, the angels brought her gospels herald-
ing Allahs victory. In Dhul Qaadah, she saw Ibrahim, peace be
upon him, who enlightened her about the magnificent and dig-
nified gift of God. In Dhul Hijjah, Musa, peace be upon him,
kindled her knowledge about the elevated spiritual status of our
master, Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, and his
astounding majesty. In Muharram, the angel Jibreel, peace be
upon him, declared to her that the destined time of felicity was
near. The angels were assigned to the house of Amina in the
month of Safar to welcome and honor this chosen one. All these
miraculous incidences assured Amina that the promised delight
was imminent. Upon the onset of the month of Rabi Al-Awwal
, the firmaments of heaven and earth raised their illustrious
anticipation, and sanctified light dawned upon the Kaaba and
Safa. The time of the noble birth came close and the sun of
triumph and victory began to dawn. This pearl of truth out-
shone the skies. The flags of His pleasure unfurled throughout
the worlds. She felt the throes of the blessed birth whereby a
white bird flew by her descending from the sky. On the twelfth
night

of Rabi Al-Awwal, on the blessed dawn of that Monday,
she gave birth to the Prophet to all jinn and mankind, may
peace and blessings be upon him, his blessed family and all his
companions.

The sky borne angels, professed rapturously,
The beloved is born and his similitude will never be found.
His community is blessed by the sight of him,
That is the bountiful honour bestowed upon us.
Born circumcised, eyes coloured with antimony,
chronicled in the sound chains of Tradition.
O flag of guidance! May Allah shower his blessing on you,
With all the song birds in the branches, singing His praise.

O my Lord, may your blessing be upon Prophet Muhammad,
Saviour of mankind from the fire of Hell on that day of
reckoning.
The beloved, the master, the righteous was born,
From his blessed cheeks, did light emanate.
The angel Jibrl announcing his beauty, did say,
Here is the beauty of the worlds, prophesied as the praised
one.
Here is the chosen one, coloured with antimony,
Here is the one of finest description, here is the master.
His is the finest figure, pleasing to Allah,
His face the most handsome, unparalleled is he.
He is the one dressed in the most radiant clothes,
Truly he is a peerless entity.

I looked upon him when a caller cried out to hide the child from
the masses such that his appearances amongst the people were
only for the shortest moments. I remained in that fearful state
until three angels came to accompany me, their faces like the
full moon. One carried a silver pitcher, another carried a basin
made out of peridot, and the third angel unfolded a whitened
silk. He took out the Seal of Prophethood that flashed the eyes
of its observers with its intense light. He carried my child and
handed him over to the angel with a basin. He washed the blessed
infant seven times. The second angel spoke to his companion,
Place the Seal of Prophethood between the shoulders of the
child. He is the last and final messenger

The Noble Prophets Birth:
It is reported that when Amina gave birth to the Noble
Prophet, may peace and blessings be upon him, she saw such a
light that the palaces of Syria were illuminated by it. It is also
reported that Amina, may Allah be pleased with her, said, I
wished to rest my eyes on my son, but when I could not see
him, I gazed upon him in the cradle, anointed, circumcised and
gently wrapped within a woolen mantle softer than silk, which
released the sweetest fragrance.

Episodes after the Prophetic Birth:
It is reported from Yahya Ibn Urwah, a delegation from the
tribe of Quraish used to engage in celebrations on a particular
day to please their idols. As usual, they would gather and
slaughter many animals on that day, eating lavishly, drinking
heavily and engaging in idle entertainment. As soon as they
had finished their festivities, they found their idols had fallen to
the ground on their faces. Whenever they attempted to restore
them to their upright state, they would fall again disgracefully.
When this was repeated for the third time, the polytheists
became distressed and heartbroken. Thus, their day of
celebration was spoiled by their misplaced grief and pain.

The rise of Truth, the fall of Falsehood:
It is reported that at the birth of the Prophet, may peace and
blessings be upon him, the fire that has been worshipped by
Zoroastrians in Persia, unextinguished for thousands of years,
was put out that night. The Iwan palace of Khosrau, Emperor
of Persia, trembled, and fourteen of its towers fell. The Lake
Sawah, worshipped by disbelievers had dried out, every idol
fell in disgrace, and the devils were stricken with falling stars in
the sky. The truth has been revealed and falsehood has vanished.

O idol of celebration, surrounded by foolhardy people from
near and far,
Why did you fall on your face?
Our grief has run our caravan aground,
Is it because of our sins you have fallen? Now shall we regret
and swear to leave those sins.
Has someone overpowered you and had defeated you?
Then surely, you are not the lord and protector of our idols.
The idol has fallen because a child is born,
He illuminated every path on earth, each struck with
inextinguishable awe.
Each adored fire of the Persians was extinguished,
Troubling the Shah of Persia, sadly aggrieved.
O tribe of Qusayy, return from your estrangement,
And make Islam your habour, a most comfortable abode.

Surely, the destined time, the secrets of the Prophetic
birth had appeared before all of creation, illumined in his
blessed light, may peace and blessings be upon him. His mother,
Amina, alone in the house was entertained by the sweet dreams
and blessings of her expected baby, may peace and blessings be
upon him. Her abode was embellished with spiritual lights and
she basked in true contentment and joy. The angels and the
maidens of Paradise blessed her with their spiritual presence. A
beautiful array of fine birds settled in her house carrying gospels
of happiness. She heard a profound whispering which
announced the arrival of the blessed child, may peace and
blessings be upon him. These extraordinary incidents occurred

Ibn Al-Ishaaq says on the seventh day of Prophets birth, may

carried out the rites to welcome the child. He prepared a feast
for all the nobles of Quraish, hosting them to celebrate the ar-
rival of a newborn baby in his family. After the celebration,
they inquired about the name of the child. He said I have named
him Muhammad, may peace and blessings be upon him. They
expressed their disapproval in his choice, and complained, This
name is too uncommon in our tribal tradition. Abd Al-Muttalib
responded to them, I have named him Muhammad, because I

By Allah, the love for you betrays no one,
Due to your perfect beauty and grace.
Our hope is with our intercessor of all creation,
To rectify our lives and ways.
It is he who saved us from all afflictions,
It is his fragrance spread far in the Universe.
O Lord, bless upon us with his visits,
Before you take our souls.
O Lord, bless the prophet who guided us,
To the path of reality and true grandeur.

Was never in need of illumination.
Your clear countenance may prove us saved,
On that day when proofs are brought forth.
The poorly ill have you visited,
Allah gave them comfort from the trouble they were in.
If you are their goal, then they are saved,
They are elevated from the state they were in.
For their love for you, they have submitted,
Sacrificing their soul and body for the love they fell in.
Their lives have you generously sheltered,
And dominated the sea and the waves in your giving .
From the blazing Fire you have rescued,
from burning in Hell and boiling therein.
O the one who can repeal our sins, our sins prevent us
from shedding tears and weeping.
Our love for you is being effaced,
By the marks of our sins, our negligence.

In that very night the Prophet, may peace and blessings be
upon him, appeared in my dream and inquired about the
incident. I explained to him, may peace and blessings be upon
him, what had happened. The Holy Prophet, may peace and
blessings be upon him, consoled me and gave the auspicious
news that the man who had censured me would revert to Islam
the very next day. I emotionally waited for the promise of the
Prophet, may peace and blessings be upon him, to be fulfilled,
and miraculously someone came knocking on my door the next
day.
It was the non-Muslim neighbour who entered my house and
began to inform me about the spiritual experience he had been
blessed with through the Holy Prophet, may peace and blessings
be upon him. He had accepted Islam as was promised by the
Prophet, may peace and blessings be upon him. He said to me
how are you, one whom God has blessed me with the company
of? He spoke and said to me,

Celebrating the Birth of The Noble Prophet:
Ali Ibn Zaid, may Allah bless him, narrates, I used to celebrate
the nativity of the Holy Prophet, may peace and blessings be
upon him, in the month of Rabi Al-Awwal, and would prepare a
feast for the impoverished. I had a non-Muslim neighbour who
lived close to my house. He asked me why I had celebrated in
such a manner in that particular month compared to other
times.I responded to him, I am joyously expressing my utmost
delight in the birthday of the Prophet by that celebration, may
peace and blessings be upon him. The Holy Prophet was born
in this month, may peace and blessing be upon him. I was
snubbed and summarily distressed by the curt remarks of my
listener.

this man rivals the beauty of the full moon. When he walked,

During my conversation with him the door was knocked again.
When it was opened, his wife and daughter entered, declaring
their faith in Islam. They also spoke of their experiences with
the Prophet, may peace and blessings be upon him. They spoke
of the same promise of palaces belonging to both of them. The
man then passed away at that very moment. His daughter
passed away on the second day and the wife on the next day as
they were all promised, may Allah have mercy upon them. All
praises be to Allah who has blessed us to be part of the Ummah

Allah perpetually send his blessing upon him during every state
of mankind, both in its Godly remembrance and its shameful

Even in the minds of his jealous enemies, they testified.
The full moon was split on his command
while the sun was setting,
and it was turned back by his indication
when no one was in any doubt.
The wild animals and the trees prostrated for his esteem,
Greeting him after their truthful testimony.
He fed and nourished with little food, all his companions,
Until each was satisfied, while the blessed food did not
decrease.
To him belongs the right of intercession, the bounty of
nobility and great stature,
And that praised station closest to Allah, on that promised
day.
His virtues are endless and innumerable,
We are unable to praise as we intended.
O master of masters, I came to you intending your presence
I seek your protection, please dont leave me alone.

My utter weakness, my injustice, so accept my plea.
