The Majestic Mir’aj


He ﷻ drew you ﷺ ever close that night
To a nearness never granted before

Zam Zam you ﷺ purified that night
To purity it never possessed before

Buraaq quivered in awe that night
Awe like this it never felt before

You ﷺ lit up all the heavens so bright
By your ﷺ light never created before

He ﷻ expanded and filled your ﷺ chest with light
To reach a station never traversed before

You ﷺ surpassed all others in flight
To Majesty ﷻ never witnessed before

You ﷺ entered the sacred sphere that night
To His ﷻ prescance no being ever felt before

You ﷺ saw and did not swerve in sight
At vision of Him ﷻ never seen before

He ﷻ enveloped you ﷺ in closeness that night
At two bows length never reached before

You ﷺ spent tender moments during that night
In a proximity never experienced before

Creation stood ‘still’ in submission that night
For no Beloved had been loved like this before

The Night of His ﷺ Blessed Arrival


Hadhrat Uthmān ibn Abī al-Ās said: “My mother related to me:

I was there the night Āmina bint Wahb gave birth to the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ. Everything I laid eyes on inside the house was filled with light. Truly I was looking at the stars approaching me and I was saying surely they are going to fall on me!

– Bayhaqi –

Allah has Made Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him)) the focal point of Islam, the Universe and our Lives!


ہو نہ يہ پھول تو بلبل کا ترنم بھی نہ ہو
چمن دہر ميں کليوں کا تبسم بھی نہ ہو
يہ نہ ساقی ہو تو پھرمے بھی نہ ہو، خم بھی نہ ہو
بزم توحيد بھی دنيا ميں نہ ہو، تم بھی نہ ہو

Ho Na Ye Phool To Bulbul Ka Tarannum Bhi Na Ho
Chaman-e-Dehr Mein Kaliyon Ka Tabassum Bhi Na Ho
Ye Na Saqi Ho To Phir Mai Bhi Na Ho, Khum Bhi Na Ho
Bazm-e-Touheed Bhi Dunya Mein Na Ho, Tum Bhi Na Ho

If this fair flower (Muhammad) blossom not, the nightingale will not sing,
Nor rose‐buds make the garden of era smile welcoming in the spring,
If he is not the quencher, then nor jar nor wine will be,
Nor in this world will Tawheed (Oneness of God) shine, Nor your heart beat in you!

(salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)
