Tribute to the Shaykh [May 2011]
In The Name Of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Beneficient,
Darud & Salaam upon His Beloved Messenger [upon whom be peace]
A Humble Tribute to His Eminence
Shaykh al Islam w'al Muslimeen
[May Allah Preserve & Protect him]
in testimony to their 2011 UK Tour
I do not know where to begin nor where to start,
For I have no words to describe the joy felt in my heart.
Soon my life will be rejuvenated when you arrive,
Tis your guidance, love & support that helps me survive.
Your visions pre-occupy my thoughts, mind and heart,
Separation from your blissful company tears me apart.
Enter my humiliated heart, though I have nothing to show,
Yet with your attention, even the darkest night can glow.
I seek just one tiny droplet from your bountiful ocean,
What good have I ever done to deserve this devotion?
You have dedicated your life defending the doctrines of Deen
How can one ever forget your services, your equal is unseen.
A Scholar, Shaykh, Sufi, Orator, Author & Qur’anic Commentator,
Embellished in the lineage of The Pure Household by our Creator.
Decades ago when many could not apprehend your decision,
Today are appearing on the screen, such is your spiritual vision.
Through his ‘Wilayah’ he had awareness of your status & seen,
Thus complimented you with the title ‘Ra’ees al Muhaqqiqeen’
The forces of energy around you compels one to surrender,
Radiance from Baghdad & Ajmer is manifest in your splendour.
You are Sultan Ashraf’s true representative, By Allah, I swear!
Thus chosen by your noble elders as their spiritual heir.
Your benevolent glance towards my heart is all I yearn,
The begrudging who scorn your status will continue to burn.
