KHAYRU MAN WATI'A AL-THARA
Trans. GF Haddad

Blessings on the Prophet and peace on the Messenger,
The intercessor from al-Abtah and the Arabian Beloved!

The best of those who walk the earth, the one who can intercede for
creation,
By whom the shackles of every sinful servant are undone!

No peer has he through whom his community triumphed!
Whoever dies loving him, truly, has obtained everything he could wish.

I am completely seduced by him and my sole desire is nearness to him.
O my Lord! Hasten it for me so that I may drink from the purest source!

How many a sick one he has cured! How many left in darkness he has
enlightened!
How many a favor he has bestowed on both the wise and the inane!

What munificent generosity is his, O my Lord, what abundant gifts!
How much have the trusted ones related from him, O my Lord, every
necessary science!

What wonderful elect one is this, O my Lord, possessing such nobility
and fulfillment!
The immense merit of Ahmad is not hidden, O my Lord, both East and West!

Blessings on the Prophet, O my Lord, and peace on the Messenger,
The intercessor from al-Abtah, O my Lord, and the Arabian Beloved!

How many a burning lover of his has drowned in tears,
His mind held captive once he was invited to his love!

Ya Rasul Allah! O best of all Prophets,
Save us from the Abysm, O pure-stationed one!

Blessings on the Prophet and peace on the Messenger,
The intercessor from al-Abtah and the Arabian Beloved!

and on the Banner of Guidance, Ahmad, who ends enmity,
Be generous with a greeting shining bright for the Yathribi Prophet!

and upon him send peace as long as a bough sways in the Sanctuary
and the full moon rises in the darkest night sky.
