English Translation

1. The morning rises in madeenah and nur is being distributed in this
zone! This is the nur zone!
And to seek the alms of nur, has come the star of nur!

2. The beautiful flower of nur blooms in the garden of Madeenah!
An enchanting fragrance, and the nightingales recite the kalimah of
nur!

3. And the salutation of the moon on the twelfth is truly a
prostration of nuur! (on the 12th rabi`y al awwal Rasulallah was
born. In the Hadeeth it is said that when Rasulallah sallallahu
`alayhi wa sallam was born he did a sajdah. ) All the stars from the
twelve constellations bow down to salute thee!

4. Paradise is one small room from his palace of nur!
And sidrah (the tree in paradise) is a small plant in his garden of
nur!

5. The Throne and firdaws all belong to this prince of nur!
Those are the eight constellations and he the exalted lamp of nur!
(as in the suurah nur!)

6. Bid`ah came; and darkness prevails; and the color of nur (Islam)
has changed!
O the sun of Sunnah and the radiant moon, redeem the nur!

7. On your blessed forehead remained the crown of nur, Ya Rasulallah
my life!
And because of you the prospects of nur brightened when the star of
nur shone forth!

8. I am your slave, and you are the king; Ya Rasulallah fill my cup
of nur!
Each day your nur increases, give me the charity of nur!

9. The crowned ones after seeing thy turban of nur bow down their
heads and say : `glory is to the nur’

10. Thy heart is the lamp; thy body the nice; thy breast the
chandelier and to describe your face has the surah of nur been
revealed (suurat is used twice in this couplet; first meaning face,
second meaning chapter of the Quran)

11. You are the shade of light; every part of your body is nur,
And the shade doesn’t have a shadow of its own, nor does light spread
forth a shadow! (what a beauty! it is said, that Rasulallah
sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam is the shade of the nuur of Allah. So
the shade doesn’t spread forth a shadow; as is described in the
Hadeeth that Rasulallah sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam did not have a
shadow. And Rasulallah sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam is nur; neither
does any light have a shadow!)

12. Ya Rasulallah! Your blessed progeny every child amongst them is
one of nur you are the source of nur and all your clan is that of
nur!

13. The moon would sway to and forth when thou gestured at it in your
cradle!
How beautifully did it move on thy gestures, that toy of nur! (it is
in the Hadeeth that when Rasulallah sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam was
in his cradle he would make a sign at the moon and the moon would
sway at the behest of his blessed finger)

14. Kaaf are his fore locks; haa is his blessed mouth; yaa are the
brows and `ayn Saad are his eyes (the `ayn can me made like the eye;
in fact `ayn also means the eye; saad is the pupil in the eye) //
kaaf haa yaa `ayn Saad is (as one tafseer) the description of his
blessed radiant face; sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam

15. O Raza this is the blessing of nuur from Ahmed Nuri (his shaykh;
or it means the radiant Ahmed, our Rasul)
That your poem has been exalted from a poem to the status of `eulogy
of nuur’!
