Beyond the Outward 1

The path of Sunnah leads to life
Without the Sunnah life is a waste
Embrace the Sunnah with all your hearts
This is the purpose and the goal

La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illa Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

The last of Prophets Mustafa
Is the best example sent to man
The walking Qur’ani Habibullah
Is a model sent to all

La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illa Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

The outward Sunnah should not be left
But the inward of Sunnah counts the most
The beauty of a shell counts for naught
When the nut is pure decay

La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illa Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

The Pivot of Sunnah comes in three
Just like the Deen of Rasulullah
Iman, ‘Amal and Ihsan
The bases of Sunnah are just like this

La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illa Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah
***********************************************
Profuse Salawat for Mustafa
Is the basis of love never forget
Misers of the worlds fall behind
Any believer devoids of this

La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illa Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

When a believer sends Salam
Upon the Sayyed-il Mursalin
The Angels reply with ten Salams

Ten of his sins are wiped away
And his maqam is raised in tens
You get as much as you are able to give
With Salawats light your path

La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illa Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

When a believer makes Dua
Saying Salawat before he starts
And Salawat at the end
He’s sure of acceptance Masha Allah
Since Salawat is never repelled
What it covers is not repelled

La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illa Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah
********************************************
Outward appearance of Rasulullah
Is surely an asset great indeed
What a honour without compare
Dressing and walking like Allah’s Habib
What a favour rare in life
Talking and acting like Rasulullah
If your dress is close to his
Your manners and reaction should be like his
You insult the Sunnah when you act
Against the Sunnah despite your dress
Rasulu Karim is the Prophet of mercy
O my brothers mind your beards

La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illa Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Moral purity that baffles the world
Is the true reflection of Mustafa
Total forgiveness for friends and foes
Is the true reflection of Rasulullah
Clean appearance without a stain
Is the true reflection of Habibullah
Smile endearing that softens the hearts
Is the true reflection of Mujtaba
Tears of mercy for others in pains
Is the true reflection of Nurullah
The Sunnah appearance begins the journey

To be successful act like him

La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illa Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

*********************************************
The fruit of following Allah’s Habib
Is in your mercy for those he leads
The sign of success in life is this
Serving the Ummah of Rasulullah

La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illa Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Love the Muslims with all your heart
And protect their honours without a fail
Believers are blessed in Allah’s estimation
Both the sinners and the saintly pure

La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illa Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Seek the saintly and sit with them
Through their barkat get some light
Advice the sinners with endearing words
Never for once insult nor curse
He who calls a believer a kafir
Loses his Iman Subhanallah!

La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illa Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Whatever you have here on earth
Think of the Ummah of Mustafa
With your knowledge and your strength
Assist the Ummah of Rasulullah
With your progenies and your wealth
Help the Ummah of Habibullah
Whatever you spend to raise his Ummah
Is an investment you’re sure to reap

La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illa Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

As long as Allah keeps me alive
At your service Rasulullah
*****************************************
With every mote of my being
At your service Rasulullah
*****************************************
With all the blood in my veins
At your service Rasulullah
******************************************
With my progenies until the end
At your service Rasulullah
********************************************
With my knowledge and all I have
At your service Rasulullah
*******************************************
May my parents and all they have
And my children and all my beloved
Become a Labaik just for once
At your service Rasulullah
******************************************
May the Angel take my soul
When my heart and body unite
At your service Rasulullah
*****************************************
Hamd eternally to the Lord of all
Salat and Salam on Rasulullah
On his Sahabah and all his Ahl
And our beloved Mujaddidi
Ahmad ar-Rabbani the great Sila
On all our masters pure as gem
The Saintly heirs of Rasulullah
In their love I find my joys
In love for them I want to die
With the pure I want to rise
On the Day of Hisab Ya Karim
Along with them I want to pass
Through the bridge of Sirat
In their company I want to stay
Happy eternally in Jannat Firdaus
These are my wishes Ya Allahu
Through the rank of Rasulullah

La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illallah
La ilaha illa Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Curing the Heart

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Whenever a believer feels some pains
He rushes to a doctor for quick relief
The trials of Dunya is bound to end
Even if it lasts from birth to death

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

The sickness of the body is of great concern
Despite the fact that man will meet his death
And that his body will rot away
With all its ailments becoming a dream

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

The sickness of the body are treated at once
And with a desperation rare in life
How many patients are there on the air
Flying to doctors in some countries far

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah Continue reading “Curing the Heart”
