We will try to answer here, and the answers are very important, for everyone to know and share. First of all, he is Allah’s Beloved Allah’s love for him is clear. And when you praise Allah’s Beloved, to Allah you will become dear. Allahumma šalli ¿ala Muħammad wa ¿ala ‘ālihi wa sallim (x2) Second of all, Allah in His glory, on Muhammad He sends salawat, And all the angels everywhere and every time, they have to praise the Holy Prophet. Third of all, its Allah’s order It is written in the Holy Quran: “Oh believers make salawat on Muhammad, And send him your Salams” Allahumma šalli ¿ala Muħammad wa ¿ala ‘ālihi wa sallim (x2) Fourth of all, when you’re making salawat, it is like taking a shower of light. It will wash away your darkness, and will make you shine so bright. 5th of all, when you make salawat, your prayers will be answered, for Allah honors your prayers, when you honor His Beloved. Allahumma šalli ¿ala Muħammad wa ¿ala ‘ālihi wa sallim (x2) 6th of all, when you’re making salawat, the angels will be happy with you. They will send salawat on your behalf, and ask forgiveness too. 7th of all when you are making salawat, all beings will join you too. They will make salawat on Muhammad, and gift the rewards to you. Allahumma šalli ¿ala Muħammad wa ¿ala ‘ālihi wa sallim (x2) 8th of all when you make salawat, You’ll be walking on the road to paradise. So keep making salawat on Muhammad, until you see heaven with your eyes. 9th of all, Prophet Muhammad promised those who make salawat, that he will intercede for them In the presence of Allah. Allahumma šalli ¿ala Muħammad wa ¿ala ālihi wa sallim. 10th of all, when we make salawat with Salam upon the Prophet, He will know that you’ve just greeted him and he will then greet you back. The gifts of salawat are too many, that is why we will only count to ten. But there are a few more we all should know, you and I and everyone. For one salawat on Muhammad, Allah will give you ten. For ten salawat on Muhammad, A hundred He will send. For 100 salawat on Muhammad, A thousand Allah will give. For a 1000 salawat on Muhammad In Eternal Heavens you will live.

Mawlid of The Pride of Creation

English Sung Poetry About the Story of Sayyidna Muhammad's (PBUH) Earthly Manifestation!

Author’s Introduction

 

أَعُوذُ بِاللهِ مِنَ الْشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيم

ā¿ūdhu billāhi mina’sh-shayţāni ‘rrajīm Bismillāhi ’r-Raħmāni ’r-Raħīm

I seek the protection of Allāh from the accursed Satan

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

“Faith is the fruit of the nourished soul. The soul’s nourishment is love for Allah µ and His Prophet ÿ”

 

Praise be to Allah µ, lord of the worlds. The Beneficent, the Merciful.

Peace and blessings upon Sayyidna Muhammad ÿ, his family and his companions.

 

Further more, all thanks and praise to Allah µ for granting us the success (tawfeeq) to write and compose this Mawlid book, “Mawlid of the Pride of Creation”. 

We gave it this title because it was the favorite title for one of the Great Shaykhs in the Naqshbandi  Sufi way, the late Shaykh Abdullah Al-Fa’iz Addagistani (q). He would use it whenever he would speak about Sayyidna Muhammad ÿ. 

 

Reciting and reading Mawlid is important in the life of Muslims nowadays, because praising the Prophet helps to increase one’s appreciation and love for Sayyidna Muhammad ÿ. After belief in Allah µ, the love a Muslim has for Sayyidna Muhammad ÿ is the most important factor in his or her spiritual life. If love is missing, one’s faith (Iman) is missing as well. The more we have love for our Prophet, the more our Iman will increase. 

 

You can not love what you do not know. In order to love Sayyidna Muhammad ÿ, a believer must get to know him. That is why we wanted to write this Mawlid in English. Our intention is for the Mawlid gatherings and recitations to become a vehicle for people to learn something about the greatness of Sayyidna Muhammad ÿ.  

Although listening to the Mawlid recited in Arabic brings blessings and mercy upon those attending, for those who do not speak Arabic, they are missing a huge benefit that comes only with understand the meaning of the nasheeds and poems. Understanding leads to love, and love for our Prophet equates faith.

 

We ask that Allah µ to make our intentions pure, to accept from us these humble deed, and to grant this Mawlid success (tawfeeq), and grant those who recite it the honor of attaining real love for Sayyidna Muhammad ÿ

 

The poor servant of Allah in need of His mercy, 

Ali Elsayed

Chapter 1 - Intention / Niyyah

 

أَعُوذُ بِاللهِ مِنَ الْشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيم

ā¿ūdhu billāhi mina’sh-shayţāni ‘r-rajīm Bismillāhi ’r-Raħmāni ’r-Raħīm

I seek the protection of Allah from the accursed Satan

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

 

 

Oh Allah, our intention for coming here together

is to praise Your Beloved Prophet and Messenger.

By doing so, we intend to obey Your order.

Through doing so, we seek Your nearness and pleasure.

 

Oh Allah, we are also here because we are lovers, because we love Your Beloved and wish to be with him forever. Oh Allah, we thank you for this magnificent honor.

 

Oh Allah, grant us the power and ability to leave the delusion of thinking we have power or ability, and to reach the conclusion that only You have power and ability.

 

Oh Allah, it is You who granted us success to gather here tonight, to wash away our sins with showers of light, and to taste the heavenly fruits of eternal delights.

 

Oh Allah, we know we can never praise Your Prophet in a befitting manner; or come close to describing what You’ve bestowed on him of status and favors; for He is Your Beloved, and You are Allah the Lord of Grandeur and Power.

 

Oh Allah, please accept these humble deeds from us.

Grant us forgiveness and continued success,

to praise Your Beloved until our last breath.

 

Fatiha

2 – We Begin with Bismillah

 

 

           اللهُمَّ صَلِِّ وَسَلِّمْ وَبَارِكْ عَلَيْهِ وَعلَىْ آلِه  

Allāhuma šalli wa sallim wa bārik ¿alayhi  wa ¿alā ālih

O Allāh raise higher, bless and send peace on him and his family

 

 

We begin by acknowledging our helplessness and need,

for we know that all good things from Allah proceed.

His Messenger informed us in a holy hadeeth:

“No benefit will come from any deed,

which does not begin with Bismi ‘l-Lāh”.

 

(Bismi ‘l-Lāhi ‘r-Raħmāni ‘r-Raħīm) (x3)

 

We follow by planting in heavens some seeds,

by praising our Lord and taking heed

of the advice in heavens our Prophet received, 

from the father of the Prophets of Tawheed,

Sayyidna ‘Ibrahim Khalīlullah: 

 

(Subħana Allah, wa ‘lħamdulillah, wa la ‘ilāha ‘illa ‘l-Lāh, wa ‘l-Lahu ‘akbar (x3)

 

Praising the Prophet is part of our creed. 

The one who was told in the Quran to read.

Sayyidna Muhammad whom Allah decreed,

that on the day of judgment, he will intercede

for the sinful servants of Allah.

 

Šalātullah salāmullah ala Taha Rasūlillāh

Šalātullah salāmullah ala Yasīn Ħabibillah (x2)

 

 

اللهُمَّ صَلِِّ وَسَلِّمْ وَبَارِكْ عَلَيْهِ وَعلَىْ آلِه

Allāhuma šalli wa sallim wa bārik ¿alayhi  wa ¿alā ālih

O Allāh raise higher, bless and send peace on him and his family

6 – The Mirror of Creation

 

 

أشْهَدُ أَنْ لا إِلهَ إِلاّ الله وأشْهدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّداً رَسُولُ الله

Ash-hadu ‘an lā  ‘ilāha illa l-Lāh wa ‘ash-hadu ‘anna Muħammadan Rasūlullāh

I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear witness that Muħammad is the Messenger of Allah.

 

Praise be to the only One who has true existence

For their existence, on Him all depends.

He has no partner He has no equal

He is the Mighty Lord, the absolute Sovereign.

 

He is pre-eternal, He is everlasting.

He needs nothing, He needs no one.

Nothing resembles Him, nothing can contain Him.

He is beyond space; He is beyond time.

 

Ash-hadu ‘an lā  ‘ilāha ‘illa l-Lāh

wa ‘ash-hadu ‘anna Muħammadan Rasūlullāh (x2)

 

His power is such that it has no limits

He is Mighty, He is Omnipotent

If He says Be to something, it will Be

His power is such, you can’t imagine

He sees all and He hears all

He knows all, He is Omniscient

He speaks, He conveys His Messages

He is the living One, He is life giving

 

As-hhadu ‘an lā  ‘ilāha ‘illa l-Lāh

wa ‘ash-hadu ‘anna Muħammadan Rasūlullāh (x2)

 

Praise be to Him, He created the light of Muhammad

from His light, what magnificence!

For 70 thousand years, He dressed His Beloved.

For 70 thousand years, He gazed upon Him.

 

He made Muhammad the mirror of creation,

all creation with Prophet begins.

He is the Prophet of Allah from before time,

He will remain so after time ends.

 

Ashhadu ‘an lā  ‘ilāha ‘illa l-Lāh

wa ‘ash-hadu ‘anna Muħammadan Rasūlullāh (2x)

7 - The Greatest of All Trees

 

 

اللهُمَّ صَلِِّ وَسَلِّمْ وَبَارِكْ عَلَيْهِ وَعلَىْ آلِه

Allāhuma šalli wa sallim wa bārik ¿alayhi  wa ¿alā ālih

O Allāh raise higher, bless and send peace on him and his family

 

عَنْ أَبِي عَمَّارٍ شَدَّادٍ، أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ وَاثِلَةَ بْنَ الْأَسْقَعِ، يَقُولُ: سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ (ص) يَقُولُ: " إِنَّ اللَّهَ اصْطَفَى كِنَانَةَ مِنْ وَلَدِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ، وَاصْطَفَى قُرَيْشًا مِنْ كِنَانَةَ، وَاصْطَفَى مِنْ قُرَيْشٍ بَنِي هَاشِمٍ، وَاصْطَفَانِي مِنْ بَنِي هَاشِمٍ " - مسلم والترمذي

Narrated by Ammar bin Shaddad that he heard Wathilah ibn al-Asqa say, that Sayyidna Muhammad (pbuh) said: "Indeed Allah chose  Kinanah over other tribes from the children of Isma'il; He chose Quraish over other tribes of Kinanah; He chose Banu Hashim over the other families of the Quraish; and He chose me from Banu Hashim." Muslim and Tirmidhi.

 

This is a song about a tree,

The greatest of all trees.

Its fruits are men, very special men

with whom Allah is pleased.

 

In their loins they carried a light,

a very special light.

This light was sent to guide mankind

From darkness into light.

 

Learning the names of these great men,

our Prophet’s forefathers,

is a good way to show respect

to the one who is most honored.

اللهُمَّ صَلِِّ وَسَلِّمْ وَبَارِكْ عَلَيْهِ وَعلَىْ آلِه

Allāhuma šalli wa sallim wa bārik ¿alayhi  wa ¿alā ālih

O Allāh raise higher, bless and send peace on him and his family

8 - Why Do We Make Salawat?

 

اللهُمَّ صَلِِّ وَسَلِّمْ وَبَارِكْ عَلَيْهِ وَعلَىْ آلِه

Allāhuma šalli wa sallim wa bārik ¿alayhi  wa ¿alā ālih

O Allāh raise higher, bless and send peace on him and his family

 

Why do we make salawat on Muhammad?

We will try to answer here,

and the answers are very important, 

for everyone to know and share.

 

First of all, he is Allah’s Beloved 

Allah’s love for him is clear.

And when you praise Allah’s Beloved,

to Allah you will become dear.

 

Allahumma šalli ¿ala Muħammad 

wa  ¿ala ‘ālihi wa sallim (x2)

 

Second of all, Allah in His glory,

on Muhammad He sends salawat,

And all the angels everywhere and every time,

they have to praise the Holy Prophet.

 

 

Third of all, its Allah’s order

It is written in the Holy Quran:

“Oh believers make salawat on Muhammad,

And send him your Salams”

 

Allahumma šalli ¿ala Muħammad 

wa  ¿ala ‘ālihi wa sallim (x2)

 

Fourth of all, when you’re making salawat, 

it is like taking a shower of light.

It will wash away your darkness,

and will make you shine so bright.

 

5th of all, when you make salawat,

your prayers will be answered,

for Allah honors your prayers,

when you honor His Beloved.

 

Allahumma šalli ¿ala Muħammad 

wa  ¿ala ‘ālihi wa sallim (x2)

 

6th of all, when you’re making salawat,

the angels will be happy with you.

They will send salawat on your behalf,

and ask forgiveness too.

 

7th of all when you are making salawat,

all beings will join you too.

They will make salawat on Muhammad,

and gift the rewards to you.

 

Allahumma šalli ¿ala Muħammad 

wa  ¿ala ‘ālihi wa sallim (x2)

 

8th of all when you make salawat,

You’ll be walking on the road to paradise.

So keep making salawat on Muhammad, 

until you see heaven with your eyes.

 

9th of all, Prophet Muhammad

promised those who make salawat,

that he will intercede for them

In the presence of Allah.

 

Allahumma šalli ¿ala Muħammad 

wa  ¿ala ālihi wa sallim.

 

10th of all, when we make salawat

with Salam upon the Prophet,

He will know that you’ve just greeted him

and he will then greet you back.

 

The gifts of salawat are too many, 

that is why we will only count to ten.

But there are a few more we all should know, 

you and I and everyone.

 

 

For one salawat on Muhammad,

Allah will give you ten.

For ten salawat on Muhammad,

A hundred He will send.

 

For 100 salawat on Muhammad, 

A thousand Allah will give.

For a 1000 salawat on Muhammad

In Eternal Heavens you will live.

 

Allahumma šalli ¿ala Muħammad 

wa  ¿ala ‘ālihi wa sallim (x2)

 

 

 

اللهُمَّ صَلِِّ وَسَلِّمْ وَبَارِكْ عَلَيْهِ وَعلَىْ آلِه

Allāhuma šalli wa sallim wa bārik ¿alayhi  wa ¿alā ālih

O Allāh raise higher, bless and send peace on him and his family

9 - The Description of Prophet (PBUH)

 

بَلَغَ اْلعُلَى بِكَمَالِهِ كَشَفَ اْلدُجَى بِجَمَالِهِ

حَسُنَتْ جَمِيعُ خِصَالِهِ صَلُّوا عَلَيهِ وَآلِهِ

اللهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِهِ وَسَلَّم

Balaghal ¿ulā bikamālihi, kashafad-duja bijamālihi

Ħasunat jamī¿u khisalihi, šallu ¿alaihi wa ‘ālihi

Allahumma šalli ¿ala Muħammadin wa ¿ala ‘ālihi wa sallim (x2)

He reached the highest perfection, he removed the darkness with his beauty.
All his attributes were excellent, send praise upon him and upon his family.

Oh Allah send Your blessings and greetings upon Muhammad and his family.

 

This is the description of Prophet.

According to the one whom he loved,

according to sayyidna Ali,

the believer’s guardian and wali.

The one whose eyes, since he was a child

were filled with the eternal delights, 

from gazing upon Muhammad

 

Balaghal ¿ulā bikamālihi, kashafad-duja bijamālihi

Ħasunat jamī¿u khisalihi, šallu ¿alaihi wa ‘ālihi

Allahumma šalli ¿ala Muħammadin wa ¿ala ‘ālihi wa sallim (x2).

 

He was neither tall nor short.

He was right in the middle between both.

His hair was not straight nor curly,

but in between and wavy.

His head was neither large nor small.

His face was round and light brown. 

This is the description of Prophet.

 

Balaghal ¿ulā bikamālihi, kashafad-duja bijamālihi

Ħasunat jamī¿u khisalihi, šallu ¿alaihi wa ‘ālihi

Allahumma šalli ¿ala Muħammadin wa ¿ala ‘ālihi wa sallim (x2).

 

His eyes were large and black.

His eyelashes were long and thick.

His bones were large with broad shoulders.

His body hair was well placed and in order,

with a thin line of hair from chest to belly.

His hands and feet were thick and strong.

This is the description of Prophet.

 

Balaghal ¿ulā bikamālihi, kashafad-duja bijamālihi

Ħasunat jamī¿u khisalihi, šallu ¿alaihi wa ‘ālihi

Allahumma šalli ¿ala Muħammadin wa ¿ala ‘ālihi wa sallim (x2).

 

When he walked he walked briskly, 

as if walking down an incline.

When he turned to look at a person,

with his full body he would turn.

Between his shoulders rested the seal, 

and he is the seal of Prophets.

This is the description of Prophet.

 

Balaghal ¿ulā bikamālihi, kashafad-duja bijamālihi

Ħasunat jamī¿u khisalihi, šallu ¿alaihi wa ‘ālihi

Allahumma šalli ¿ala Muħammadin wa ¿ala ‘ālihi wa sallim (x2).

 

He had the most generous hands.

His heart with no limits expands.

He was the most truthful of people,

and the softest amongst them in nature.

He was the noblest of his kind through his blood line.

The noblest in all of creation

This is the description of Prophet.

 

Balaghal ¿ulā bikamālihi, kashafad-duja bijamālihi

Ħasunat jamī¿u khisalihi, šallu ¿alaihi wa ‘ālihi

Allahumma šalli ¿ala Muħammadin wa ¿ala ‘ālihi wa sallim (x2).

 

When they saw him, at first they feared him.

Once they got to know him they loved him.

Those who tried to describe him

would often say about him;

“We have not seen, and we have yet to see

Anyone who resembles he”

This is the description of Prophet.

 

Balaghal ¿ula bikamalihi, kashafad-duja bijamalihi

Ħasunat jamee¿u khisalihi, sallu ¿alaihi wa ālihi

Allahumma salli ala Muhammadin wa  ¿ala ālihi wa sallim (x2)

 

اللهُمَّ صَلِِّ وَسَلِّمْ وَبَارِكْ عَلَيْهِ وَعلَىْ آلِه

O Allāh raise higher, bless and send peace on him and his family

which will turn darkness into light.
