Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi (Sm)

Syed Makki Madani
Kazi Nazrul Islam

Syed Makki Madani,
He is my Prophet Mohammad.
The friend of God, full of kindness,
he is the dearly beloved of all.

Adam, Noah, Abraham, David,
Solomon, Moses and Jesus
all bear witness to his glory.
Over all their message
prevails the message revealed
to my Prophet.
In him the world glimpsed
the hint of God's flaming light
It was he who brought to this sinful world
a foretaste of Heaven's delight.

In vain did Alexander seek
to find on this earth the nectar of Paradise.
My Prophet freely distributed the same
in the assembly of mankind.
For nothing did Zuleikha lose her head
when she met the beautiful Yusuf.
Had she seen my Prophet
gladly would she have renounced the world!
If David could hear
the honeyed words of my Prophet
surely he would have prayed for his advice.

Noah's ark did not sink
only because it had my Prophet's blessings.
Jonah, swallowed by the whale at sea,
continued to live,
and Nimrod's fire failed to kill Abraham,
only because my Prophet showered on them both
his gracious blessings.

I for one have drunk deep the Quran's nectar
Hell I have made for ever harman for me!

Translation: Kabir Chowdhury
