The best of creation

SHAFAQNA-

Peace be upon you Oh Messenger of Allah and your Pure Progeny

Peace be upon you Oh Messenger of Allah and your Pure Progeny

The final Messenger, the Chosen One

Sent from the heavens, as a mercy to all of creation

Unique in every aspect, the purest soul to be created

He never asked for no gifts, no pride, no praises

All he said in the Book, show your love to my near of kin

Yet they attacked him, broke his teeth, left marks on his pure skin

He was the most patient, the most sincere

The most noble and righteous, striving to persevere

He was the best of the best, even Adam knew his name

Never asked for no riches, no diamonds, no fame

Yusuf and Ya’qub, Musa and Isa, Nuh and Ishaq, Ismaeel and Ibraheem

All the prophets and messengers, all their lights were from Muhammad al Ameen

Even his enemies recognised his sincerity

Yet on his death bed they accused him of insanity

Asked for nothing in return, he was but God’s slave

Reminded us daily, the end is near, prepare for the grave

Oh Muslims, guard yourselves and your families

From a day where every eye will cry blood from the tragedies

Your only provision is your deeds and action

Love the orphan, help the poor and needy, elevate your station

Can one possibly comprehend, a man who received the revelation in one night

Can one begin to understand, how one thousand nights could fit into one night

A man who journeyed to the heavens, came closer than close can be

Jibraeel backed out, any further and I will not be

To the Benevolent Creator, the one who said to creation, Be

Oh Prophet, oh dear one, oh the one whom I love and cherish

Yet my eyes have never laid sight on him, that is my final wish

The one who I can hear, yet my ears have never heard his beautiful voice

The one who I can feel, yet my hands have never felt the prophetic embrace

To the Almighty he is the closest

The chosen one, nearest in station than the rest

You can look far and wide, none are like him in the east or west

Yet I am deprived to see, hear, touch my dear messenger

My soul is burdened with sins, what will be my state in the hereafter

I desperately search in the mountains and oceans, my soul just cannot rest

Yet when I think of you, it is like a cool breeze on a heart in the midst of the test

Oh Prophet of the Almighty, what did we do to deserve to know to you

My heart searches for the signs, dreams of the day I get to meet you

Now I know why Lady Fatima cried days and nights

She lost the dearest father, man, brightest of lights

To you belongs the best of blessings

To you belongs the greatest of salutations

To you descended the final word of the Benevolent Creator

To you will I turn oh Messenger, to be my final intercessor

To you will I turn to ask forgiveness, of my past sins and transgressions

To you will I turn to fulfill my everlasting love and compassion

Almighty Allah and His Angels send blessings on the Noble Prophet

Oh Mankind, oh people who believe, send your blessings on this great man, who never claimed any profit

Material wealth nor possessions he never claimed,

Gold and silver, pearls from the deepest oceans, yet knowledge and guidance was all he served

Like diving into the deepest of oceans in the darkest of nights

The fear shakes my body and soul, then I hear your comforting voice, the brightest of lights

What more do I need in this world, but your love and affection

Only your acceptance, despite all my sins and transgressions

Oh Messenger, accept us as your true companions, followers and lovers,

Like Ali, Salman, Bilal, your near ones, unlike them we are regretful sinners.

Peace be upon you Oh Messenger of Allah and your Pure Progeny

Peace be upon you Oh Messenger of Allah and your Pure Progeny
