Through the Love of the Prophet (s.a.w.)

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

“My heart will glow through my love for the Prophet’s unique station;
Having heard that the night is dark, I am carrying this lamp for illumination.
O Prophet!  The footprints of your servants are the surest guide to God consciousness;
Those, who follow their example, are destined to achieve supreme spiritual success.
The graves of the lovers of your four Companions will become the bowers of Paradise:
Those, who carry four gardens in their hearts, will certainly be made flowers of Paradise.
They went, paid their homage to your grave and came back with pangs of separation;
Though the tears have dried in their eyes, their hearts are still full of admiration.
Some Paradise-mad people have degraded themselves to the level of rooks;
They should know that Madinah, the radiant, is the very essence of Paradise–brooks.
The cloud of your conversation possesses neither moisture nor texture;
An eloquent person has to bring his own eloquence to create literary pleasure.
Is there anything more significant than praising Allah’s Messenger?
Obviously, you are pretending to run away under a deceptive cover.
O Prophet!  Your elegance and grace have been upheld by the Creator.
Even Jibril cannot dare to understate the excellence of your splendour.”

Imam Ahmad Ridha al-Qadri (r.a.)
