Send Blessings Most Serene


By Usman Siddiqui

Upon my master, Mustafa,

Lord, send your perfect peace.

Send such a peace upon him that

My hardships are released.

Raise TaHa’s praise throughout the land

And grant his rank increase,

Then help me walk upon his way,

And guard me from caprice.

 

Upon my master, Abdullah,

Send mercy endlessly;

This prayer I make my shade that Day –

Accept, my God, this plea!

Fill me with love for Your belov’d,

From Hell that I be free:

Lovers are with whoso they love –

May Ahmad’s face I see!

 

Upon my master, Muhammad,

Send blessings most serene,

And on his fragrant family,

Whom You made pure and clean;

Bless his household as You blessed

Their father, Ibrahim –

For You, my Lord God, did declare:

Peace on the folk of YaSeen!1

    Mashallah, this is a very eloquent and beautiful poem!

  2. US says:

    The last line, verse 37:130, is from the Warsh reading (salaamun ala aali yaaseen), Hafs reads: “peace be upon Elias” (salaamun ala il yaaseen). For more info: http://seekersguidance.org/ans-blog/2012/07/20/differences-between-the-canonical-recitations-of-quran/

    Thank you for the poem!
    I found it interested that you read “Ilyaseen” (Elias) in verse 37:130 as “Aal” (folk of) “Yaseen.” Is that based on an alternate qira’a or reading of the Quran?

    • US says:

      Yes, this is in the riwayah of Warsh, the Prophet (pbuh) read it “salaamun ‘ala aali yaaseen” in this transmission. This is one of the proofs that “YaSeen” at the start of Surat YaSeen refers to the beloved prophet (pbuh).
