Mawlana ‘Abd al-‘Alim asw-Swiddiq's (q.s.) Poem on the Prophet (s.a.w.) II

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Mawlana ‘Abd al-‘Alim asw-Swiddiq (q.s.) wrote this poem in his college years:

“O Prophet of Allah, please look towards my direction,
And accept me as your devoted follower.
O Prophet of Allah, save me from the love of dunya,
And help me to awake from my slumber.
O Prophet of Allah, let me on the Day of Qiyamah,
Be amongst the fortunate ones so that I can receive thy shafa’at.
O Prophet of Allah, how fortunate I am to be born into your ummah,
And on thee, I depend for guidance in this world, so help me.
O Prophet of Allah, when I die, dark and lonely will be my qabr,
But with thy light, my abode will be filled with nur.
O Prophet of Allah, I pray to Allah that He Takes me to Madina,
And cause me to die besides thy blessed Rawdhah.”
