You set the example, lived and died as our model.
You taught us right from wrong, good from evil,
You taught us the Oneness, and obedience to the One.
You eliminated disbelief, and revived a joyous belief.
You set the standards of manners, living an exalted character.
You humbled to the old and young,
the noble and ignoble.
You were the Master, but distinguished yourself not among men.
You ruled a nation, but lived in simplicity.
You illuminated our life, after a life immersed in darkness.
You revived us from dead hearts, to unexpressed spirituality.
You supplicated, struggled, beseeched thee Lord you did
for mercy, blessings and grace from above for us.
You, O Servant of Allah, begged Him to forgive us.
You live no more, yet your message lives,
preserved, honored your Book and Wisdom.
You were chosen, honored, given the high station,… sealed.
You were and are the Guide, guiding to salvation.
You are the Illuminator, illuminating the path to Paradise.
You are the Eliminator, eliminating the paths of Hell.
You were and are the Prophet and Messenger,
You, O Prophet, Honorable and Praised
You, O Prophet, are our leader, the Beloved.
Peace and Blessings upon you Messenger of Allah
