I am the prayer of Ibrahim (A.S.) and the prophecy of 'Isa (A.S.). Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam.

Tawassul is the very heart of Islam, and the Shahadah contains a declaration of belief in tawassul,
"Saud ibn Qarib recited a poem in front of the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam)

'I bear witness that

There is none worthy of worship except Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD). Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) has made you the trustee over all the Ghaib' "


It is permissible to supplicate to Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) with the tawassul of good deeds.

It is permitted to supplicate with the tawassul of a living pious person and

It is also permitted to supplicate with the tawassul of the deceased pious person.

Praise be to Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD), Lord of all the worlds, and blessings and peace of Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) upon His Prophet and Messenger Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam, his Family and all his Companions.

Tawassul is the very heart of Islam, and the Shahadah contains a declaration of belief in tawassul,

For one cannot be a Muslim unless one recognizes the messenger ship and prophet hood of Prophet Muhammad
Sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam

There is not one single act of worship in Islam that is not a tawassul (seeking means to Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD), therefore it is inadmissible to say that tawassul is not an integral and central part of Islam alone who said: "I created the jinn and humankind only that they might worship me" (51:56). Therefore this is seeking an obligatory means to an obligatory end.
The pillars of Islam similarly all consist in actions which are means before Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) for one who performs them.

 Intercession is the greatest means as it will be only through intercession that the people of the Fire will enter Paradise, and Allah even called Himself "Intercessor" in the verse: "You have not, beside Him, a protecting friend or mediator" (32:4) and in the long hadith narrated by Muslim wherein the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam said:
       Allah will say: "The angels have interceded. The Prophets have interceded. The believers have interceded.
There does not remain except the Most Merciful of the merciful ones."

               The Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam also called the Qur'an an intercessor, declared that people were intercessors, and gave as an example the intercession of children for the parents who lost them in their infancy. We ask for the intercession of the dead person every time we pray Janazah, when we say: Allahumma la tuhrimna ajrahum which means "O Allah, do not prevent their benefit from reaching us."  Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD)  declares that the best people are the Prophets, then those who are absolutely truthful (siddiqeen) and these are the great saints, then the martyrs (shuhada), then the righteous (salihun), and the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam declared that every person will be making intercession on the Day of Resurrection, but with an order of priority among them, just as  Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD)  gives precedence in this world to those who are closest to Him. All this is a great blessing of Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD)  to the worlds and the reason why we are greatly blessed on this earth despite our sins. For the earth is never empty of the true worshippers and there is still someone left saying "Allah." If you realize this, you will never harbor doubts about Muslims availing themselves of the blessings and guidance that  Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD)  sends to them in the persons of the anbiyaa' and awliyâ'.

          Nor do we believe that the friendship with Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) established in nubuwwa and wilaya stops with death. We strenuously reject the heresy of those who claim that the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam is dead and gone after delivering his message. Hasha, WA Ta’aala Allahu `amma yasifun. He is alive and fed, our greetings reach him, our actions are shown to him, he intercedes for us, and the dust of his grave is the most blessed spot on earth for which no show of love and honor is too great. No-one who has love in their heart approaches it without adab. It is the responsibility of every Muslim to ascertain what is correct from what is wrong, and tawassul is correct, recommended, and one of the greatest means of drawing close to Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD), first and foremost through the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam. This is the position of the overwhelming majority of the scholars until our own time, opposed by a handful of dissenters.

              The following is evidence that prove the permissibility to seek the Wasilla of the living and the deceased:
               Proof from the Qur'an

                Allah Most High says in the Holy Qur'an:

                "O you who Believe! Do your duties to Allah and fear Him; seek the means of approach unto him,
                And strive (with might and main) in His cause so that you may prosper [Sura Maida, verse 35]

In this verse, Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) has informed us to seek ways of obtaining Wasilla, a means to

Approach Him. Our Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) is our Wasilla in this world and the hereafter.

Allah Most High says in the Holy Qur'an:

"Before that, they were asking for victory over the infidels by means of the same Prophet"

[Sura Baqara, verse 89]

Proof from Hadith
                  "When Adam (peace be upon him) made a mistake, he made du’aa like this: ' O Allah forgive my mistake with the Wasilla of Muhammad!'  Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) asked Prophet Adam (A.S) [rhetorically] how he knew about Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam). Adam (A.S) replied, 'when you created me, I lifted my head and saw: 'LA ILA HA ILLALLAHU MUHAMMADUR RASUL'LLAH' written on the Throne. Therefore I knew that this person must be of a very high status. Otherwise you would not have written his name with yours.'  Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) Most High then said, 'I have forgiven you. He will be the last Messenger from your children and I have created you because of him.'

The second narration is when Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) Most High created the sky, and the earth. He wrote our Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) name on the pillars of the Throne and on the doors of Paradise, and on the leaves of the trees in Paradise. It was written that Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam would be the last prophet. In addition, both of these narrations are proofs which support each other. They have the status as authentic narrations"

"Imam Malik R.A. was present at the blessed grave of the Messenger of Allah Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) whereupon Caliph Haroon approached and asked him 'Which direction shall I face when I supplicate?' Imam Malik replied, 'Why turn your face away from Rasulullah (Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) when he is a Wasilla for you as he was for your father, Adam A.S. Turn your face towards the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) and make istishfaa [request for du’aa]' "

Imam Bukhari writes:
"There was a famine during the Khalifa of 'Umar (R.A) who supplicated to Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) by presenting the Wasilla of the uncle of the Messenger of Allah, 'Abbas (R.A). He prayed to Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) by saying: 'O Allah! We used to supplicate to you with the Wasilla of the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) and you would bestow us with rain. Now we present you with the Wasilla of 'Abbas, the uncle of the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam). So please grant us rain' "

Both the above narrations prove that to supplicate with the Wasilla of a pious person is permitted and is from the ijmaa of the Sa’haba.

The Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) Himself, Advised Us to Make Du’aa through His Wasilla.

"Uthman ibn Hanif (may Allah be pleased with him) narrates that a blind person came to Rasulullah (Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) and said: 'Pray to Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) that He bestows upon me sight.' Rasulullah (Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam)) replied: 'Perform ablution, pray two rakah’s Salat and then supplicate to Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) in this way:’ an Allah, I ask you through the Wasilla of the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam).' Allah Most High returned his sight"
Bukhari, in 'Ta'rikh';]

"'Uthman ibn Hanif reported that a blind person came to the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam). The blind person asked, 'Do du’aa' for me so Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) Most High restores my sight.' Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam ) said, 'If you really want to, I can do du’aa' for you or I can leave it [This means that if the blind man leaves his sight as it is, he will be rewarded more on the Day of Judgment]. But the blind man still insisted that the Prophet should make du’aa' for him. The Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) asked him to perform ablution and pray two rakah’s nawafil and to make the following supplication: 'O Allah! I ask you with the Wasilla of the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam). Ya Muhammad! I am making du’aa' to Allah Most High with your Wasilla, so that Allah Most High may accept my du’aa'. O Allah! Make Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) as my interceder"
           
 Ahmad, This hadith proves that it is permissible to make supplication with the Wasilla of the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam)

[It is proved from the above hadith that it is permissible to say 'Ya Muhammad' and it is also permissible to make supplication to Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) with the Wasilla of the Prophet.

Imam Bukhari writes that the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) said, 'Help the poor, because the help and food that Allah has given to you is with their Wasilla.'

[Bukhari, chapter on 'Jihad']

Allah helps the Ummah and provides them with food because of the sincere Dua’s of the poor people.

Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim write:
"The Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) said, 'A time will come when the non-believers will fight the Muslims. It will be asked, 'Is there anyone in the army who has seen the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam)?' They will reply 'yes' and then win the war. Another time will come when there will be another war between the non-believers and the Muslims and it will be asked, 'Is there anyone in the army who has seen the Companions of the Prophet?' They will reply 'yes' and then win the war. Another time will come and a question will be asked, 'Is there anyone in the army who has seen the people who have seen the Companions of the Prophet?' They will reply 'yes', and will win the war'"

[Bukhari, and Muslim,
These three wars will be won by the Muslims with the Wasilla of the Sahabas, Tabi'un and Tabi'u't -Taabi’i. This hadith is also verified by another hadith, where the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam)) said: "The best of generations is my generation, and then that of the generation after mine, and then the generation after that"

"The Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) said that 'Seven people will always remain in my Ummah, and with their Wasilla, Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD)   will provide rain, help, and food for the Ummah.' Another hadith states that the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) said that 30 abdal (saints) will always stay in my Ummah, and with their Wasilla, Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) Most High will provide rain, help and food.'  (Hasan al-Basri R.A. was one of them)."

252. " These are the Signs of Allah; we recite them to you (Muhammad) in truth, and verily, you are (one) of the Messengers."


"Sayidina 'Ali  (Radiyallaahu anhu) narrated that, the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) said, 'There will remain 40 abdal (Saints) in Syria. Through their Wasilla, Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) will provide food, shelter, rain and victory over the kuffar. Whenever one dies, he is replaced by another' "
[Musnad Ahmed Ibn Hanbal;]


The Prophet is Our Wasilla Even after His Death

"A person came to 'Uthman Ghani (Radiyallaahu anhu) with regards to seeking some assistance, but he was unable to attract the attention of the Khalifa on every attempt. The same person met 'Uthman ibn Hanif, (Radiyallaahu anhu) and told him his problem. 'Uthman ibn Hanif gave him some advice which was: 'Perform Wudu, pray two rak’ah nawafil and then supplicate in this way: 'Ya Allah, I ask you through the Wasilla of Your Messenger Muhammad. The person again went to 'Uthman ibn Affan (Radiyallaahu anhu) who helped him with his work and also said, 'if you ever need my help in future, I will help you (with regards to work)' "

"...The opinion of 'Uthman ibn Hanif is that it is permitted to supplicate in this way even after our Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam passed away. But since this is not evident from any other Companion it does not prove that it is wajib"

it is permitted to seek the Wasilla off the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam, and it has never been claimed that it is wajib.

These are all the proofs that demonstrate that it is permitted to supplicate to Allah by presenting the Wasilla of the pious, whether they are alive or have passed away. And success is from Allah.

 Noor- The blessed light of our Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam

We believe that it is indeed permissible to call the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam’ Nur'. The Qur'an has chosen and applied this word itself to the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam
The Companions would often call him (Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) 'Nur'.

However, it is often at this point that those who oppose this view believe, from some erroneous conviction they hold, and that we claim the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam not human! This is indeed strange and a gross accusation. For those who claim that he was not a human, have clearly ventured out of the bounds of Islam, and have entered into kufr. The Noble Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam is Nur and human,

Check this for proof.
Proof from Qur'an

Allah Most High says in the Holy Qur'an:

"Undoubtedly, there has come to you from Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) a light and a Book, luminous ".

[Sura al-'Maida', verse 15]

In this verse that the meaning of 'Nur' in this verse is used for our Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam, as
From the above evidence we conclude that it is permissible to call Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam’ Nur' and it is not kufr or shirk as some people consider it to be.
Proof from the Hadith

Imam at-Tirmidhi wrote that when he smiled, it seemed as if Nur was coming from his teeth.

[Ash-Shama’il at-Tirmidhi]

"When Adam (peace be upon him) was being created, the Nur of Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) was placed on Adam's (peace be upon him) forehead and Adam saw the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam. Adam (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) asked, 'Who is he?' Allah Most High replied, 'He is the last Prophet and will be the chief of your children' "

"Abu Huraira (Radiyallaahu anhu) narrates that: 'One night Rasulullah sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam asked me to take Hasan and Husain (Radiyallaahu anhuma) to their mother. When I departed with them I witnessed a light which lit our path and traveled with us until we reached their doorstep' "

 Sirat an-Nabi, chapter on 'Mu'jizat']

"Muhammad ibn Hamza ((Radiyallaahu anhu) narrates that 'Once Rasulullah sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam made my fingers glow with light.'

"When the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam was born, the King of Abyssinia witnessed the Nur of the Messenger Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam"

[Ta'rikh Ibn Kathir, chapter on 'Milad an-Nabi', vol. 2]

"One Companion (may Allah be pleased with him) reports that upon the occasion of Hujjat al-Wada [the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam last sermon on the day of Hajj] he saw that the blessed face of Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) was shining like the moon"

"Whilst 'Abd al-Muttalib was walking with his son ''Abdullah, a woman saw a light on the forehead of 'Abdullah. She approached them and offered one hundred camels so that 'Abdullah may marry her but they refused her offer. Some time after his marriage to Amina, 'Abdullah again confronted this woman but this time she made no offers to marry him and said: 'The Nur upon your forehead is no longer present' "

[Ibn Kathir, Ta'rikh Ibn Kathir, vol. 2. and Sirat an-Nabi; Ibn Jarir, at-Tabari chapter on 'Milad an-Nabi']

'The Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam said:’ I am the prayer of Ibrahim (A.S.) and the prophecy of 'Isa (A.S.). When my mother was pregnant she witnessed so much light from her body that she could see the palaces of Syria.'

Ibn al-Jawzi narrates that the Nur of the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam would overcome the light of both the sun and the lamp.

[Ibn Jawzi, Al-Wafa, chapter on 'al-Wilada']

Hafiz Ibn Kathir writes:

"Ka`b ibn Malik (Radiyallaahu anhu) recited a [na’ats] poem in the presence of the Prophet (May Allah blesses him and grants him peace) [part of which we have translated from Arabic is]:

'We have come to you and you have transformed our darkness into light and have removed the barriers of ignorance.'

It was Ka`b ibn Zuhair (Radiyallaahu anhu) who so eloquently praised the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam and the Emigrants with his poem “Baanat Su’aad”, and as he finished the 58 verses, the Prophet (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) rose up, and wrapped his own cloak (burdah) around Ka`b (Radiyallaahu anhu) in appreciation.  For this reason, the poem is known as the original “al-Burdah”.


"Hasan ibn Thabit (Radiyallaahu anhu) said: 'Rasulullah Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam is that star from which even the moon of the fourteenth night obtains it light' "


"From Ibn Hisham who narrates that Hasan ibn Thabit (Radiyallaahu anhu) said:' when I was eight years old, a Jew was calling to the people; they gathered around him and asked him what the commotion was. He replied:’ The star of Ahmad has risen, that which is born tonight' "

 Ibn Kathir, vol. 2; Ibn Hisham, Sirat an-Nabi, chapter on Milad an-Nabi]

All these references are proof of the light of Rasulullah Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam, which was felt by the people and witnessed by those in his presence.
What was the first thing that Allah created?

There is a difference of opinion amongst the scholars with regards to what was the first to be created, whether it was water, A’rsh (Throne), or the Ruh (Nur) of May Allah Most High bless those good poets who, in each generation - including ours - and in various languages - including ours- remind us of our Lord, uplift our hearts, raise our aspirations and increase us in love for the beloved of Allah, about whom Hassan ibn Thabit (Radiyallaahu anhu) once said in verse,

“And more excellent than you, my eye has never seen,
And more beautiful than you, no woman ever gave birth to;

You were created free from any flaw whatsoever,
As though you were created just the way you wanted”.  [Diwan Hassan ibn Thabit]

Oh my Lord, send peace and blessings, always and forever, upon your beloved Messenger, the best of all creation.). We say that the Prophet (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) was the first creation of Allah Almighty.

Allah Most High says in the Qur'an:

"And O beloved! Remember when we took covenant from the Prophets and from you, and from Nuh and Ibrahim and Musa and ''Isa son of Maryam; and we took from them a firm covenant"
[Sura al-Ahzab, verse 7]

From the above verse we are shown that Allah took the covenant from His beloved first and then from the other anbiyaa, even though they came before. The answer to this has been written by the following scholars:


"Prophet Muhammad (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) said that 'I was created before every one and I came at the end of all the Prophets' "

Allah Most High says in the Qur'an:

"Who sees you when you stand and

...your movements among those who offer prayers".

[Sura ash-Shu'ara', verse 219]

In reference to this verse, Hafiz ibn Kathir writes:

"Abdullah ibn Abbas reported that the verse '...your movements among those who offer prayers' means that the Nur moved from one Prophet to the next and this carried on until it reached Amina's house and then the Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) was born"

"The Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam said, 'I always stayed amongst the pure and then at the end I appeared to my mother' "

[Ibn Kathir, Sirat an-Nabi, chapter on 'Wilada']

"'Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) narrates that on returning from the expedition of Tabuk, I said to Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam I wish to recite a qasida about you', to which he replied:’ May Allah bless your mouth!’ I then recited this qasida:[translated part of it in English from Arabic]

"Before you came into the world, you were under the leaves of Heaven's trees.
Prophet Adam covering his body with the leaves of Heavenly trees [when his heavenly clothes were taken off him]

Before Adam came into the world, your (Nur) was transferred upon his forehead.

Through Adam you came into the world, but at the time you were not human, nor a piece of flesh, not even a drop of blood.

But at the time you were only (Nur) in your fore-father's back.

And when others were drowning your fore-father, Nuh, boarded the boat.

After coming off the boat your (Nur) was transferred from one clean woman to another

Until you came into the back of Prophet Ibrahim. How can the fire burn him while you were in his back?

Then you traveled into Khindaf, who was also a clean woman.

That is how you kept traveling forward, until the time of your birth came. When you were born, the Earth and the edge of the sky all shone as they never did from your Nur. We are still traveling under the same guidance of that Nur'"

"There is a hadith in which Rasulullah (Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) stated:’ I was a Prophet even when Adam (peace be upon him) was between clay and water [i.e. in the process of being created]

Prophet Muhammad Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam stated:’ I have always been amongst the good (group), and my Nur was present even before Adam.'

The Companions used to call the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam 'Nur

When Rasulullah Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam had passed away, the following na'ats was recited:

Imam Ibn SA’d write that Hasan ibn Thabit (may Allah be pleased with him) recited:

"Who can compare to the one who was Nur, the one from whom light was extracted.
There were blessings in his commands and he was our guide and Warner.
He was such a Nur that his light shone upon the whole of the creation.
The person who has shown us the path of this blessed (Nur) attained success.
He was the light, he was the Nur. It is his footsteps that we follow, and after Allah, he was our ears and eyes"

Ka`b ibn Malik (Radiyallaahu anhu) stated:’ He was Bashir an-Nazir and the rays of his Nur kept us enlightened. Allah saved us through his blessings of Nur, and through his mercy we obtained salvation from the fire of Hell.'

Arwa bint 'Abd al-Muttalib (may Allah be pleased with her) stated:’ If I weep, then it is for him who was the Nur for all the nations; he was the Messenger of Allah and his name was Ahmad, let me remain in this state of mind.'

Atiqa bint 'Abd al-Muttalib (may Allah be pleased with her) stated 'O my eyes! Weep for the one who was the selected Nur, who was from the children of Hashim!'

Safi ya bint 'Abd al-Muttalib (may Allah be pleased with her) stated: 'Upon the one with whom Allah is pleased, the one upon guidance and piety, the one who brought the light of guidance after darkness.'

Hind bint 'Usasa bin 'Abd al-Muttalib (may Allah be pleased with her) stated: 'He was the moon of the fourteenth night, such a Nur from which light was extracted and by the Lord he was bestowed with the Book.'

[Ibn SA’d, chapter on 'Wafat an-Nabi']

Everything contained in this chapter is evidence in support of the fact that the Nur of Rasulullah Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam was present long before human creation. For this reason our believe that although Rasulullah Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam) was a human being (bashar), it is also justified to call him Nur.

This was the reality of the creed of Nur, which is the belief of the Ahl as-Sunna wa'l-Jama'a. The final question we ask is that if it is kufr to have such belief, can all the scholars (whose names and references have been given) also be classified as kuffar?

" Glory to "Allah" Who did take His servant for a Journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to the farthest Mosque, whose precincts We did bless,- in order that We might show him some of Our Signs: for He is the One Who hearth and seeth (all things)."  Qur'an 17:1  

Some claim that you are like any one of us,
But who can claim, to have visited the A’rsh?
 We say Bashir, but respect is also due.
For mankind are like rocks, but a pearl are you.
You traveled the seven Heavens, and your eyes did not lie.
For Jibril A.S, could not pass, but You, O My Beloved Madani, glided by.

Abu Hurayrah relates that the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam said: This religion is easy. No one becomes harsh and strict in the religion without it overwhelming him. So, fulfill your duties as best you can and rejoice. Rely upon the efforts of the morning and of the evening and a little at night and you will reach your target.
