Mawlid - Melodies of the heart (1)

Bismillah.

Blessings be to my first guide, my dear Ustaz Shamsul for he has been compassionate like the sun in guiding me. And you should listen to his melodious voice when he sings these beautiful lines, which often bring tears to my eyes...
La ilaha illAllah, Ya hu
Muhammadur Rasulullah, Ya hu
Sa al nallahu, sa al nallah, Ya hu
Wa yaj 'aluna min ahlillah, Ya hu
We ask of Allah, we ask of Allah, O listen,
May He makes us among the pious, O listen

Sa al nallahu, sa al nallah, Ya hu
Wayagh baluna min fadhlillah, Ya hu
We ask of Allah, we ask of Allah, O listen,
May He fulfill all our wish, O listen

Wa yur dhihi wa yar dhallah, Ya hu
Wa nur dhihi wa nar dhallah, Ya hu
Allah is pleased with Muhammad,
Muhammad is pleased with Allah, O listen
Muhammad is pleased with us,
we are pleased with Allah, O listen

Nabi Allah hi habibillah, Ya hu
Habibillah hi Rasulillah, Ya hu
O Nabi Allah, O beloved of Allah, O listen
O beloved of Allah, O Rasulullah, O listen

Rijalullah hi rijalullah, Ya hu
Aqisuna li aj lilllah, Ya hu
O saints of Allah, O saints of Allah, O listen
Help us for the sake of Allah, O listen

Wa ku nu 'au nana fillah, Ya hu
'Asa nahzo bi fadhlillah, Ya hu
Help us on the path to Allah, O listen
May we be lucky with the grace of Allah, O listen

Wa naqtim bissolati tuhdaa, Ya hu
'Ala mukhtaa rihil ahdaa, Ya hu
And we close by praying for mercy, O listen
To Muhammad the Messenger of choice, O listen

Sa al nakum, sa al nakum waliz zulfa rojau nakum
Wafi amrin khosod naakum fashuddu 'azmakum lillah
We seek from you O saint, may you come near
All that we wish for from you, help us for the sake of Allah

Wa ya akhtho buwayaa anjaa buwayaa sadaatu ya ahbab
Wa antum ya ulil albabi ta'a lau wan suru lillah
O Qutub, Nujaba', Saadat and Ahbab (the saints)
Please come and help us for the sake of Allah

Bismillahi fatahnal baa bawasolna ma'al ahbab
Wadaa rot bai nanal akwa busharib naahaa bismillah
In the name of Allah we open the door, welcome O beloved of Allah
Glass of drinks offered and we drink them in the name of Allah

Faya Rabbi bisaadati tuhakh khikli isharati
'Asaa takti bisharati wayasfu wakhtuna lillah
O Lord, with the blessings from Your saints, fulfill our ambitions
May we be happy and at ease to strive for Your sake

Solatullahi mawlana 'ala man bil huda jana
Waman bil haqqi aulaana shafi'ul khalqi 'indallah
May Allah grant mercy to the Prophet who received guidance
And who grant sha'faat (help) in the hereafter
From: Maulidun Nabi lilberzanji wadDiba'i ma'a ArRatib alMuhammadiah

  2. Salam dear N,
    :) Come join us, we still enjoy such beautiful moments on friday nights. The 'old' batch is still around. Time flies. It's my 7th year with Ust. Shamsul, Alhamdulillah indeed. I really missed him when I was staying in Penang 07/08 so I wrote this poem for ustaz and asked a friend to recite it for him during a class at celcom.

    KALA SURIA MENERPA
    Wasshamsi waduhaha...
    ‘Demi matahari dan sinar cahayanya di pagi hari’
    asShams
    kalam Tuhan kutemui
    enam puluh bulan yang berlalu pergi

    Syukur pada Tuhan
    hidayah dikirim bersama dai’e
    Shams
    Hari gelap
    jadi terang
    hati legap
    kau gilap garang

    Tatkala suria menerpa
    bingkas bolos ke segenap maya
    tiada daya menidakkannya

    Terimakasih atas budi
    ku junjung ilmu yang diberi
    mohon halal segala isi
    moga amal jadi bukti

    Guru rohani terawal
    taat mengasah bakat
    memahat hakikat diri
    menyemai cinta pada Ilahi

    Asyik murid ini
    tidak sebanding
    kasih Rumi & Shamsu Tabriz;
    Tapi cukuplah bagiku
    cahaya mata-hati
    kerana engkau
    matahari
    menembus zahir
    memancar
    sedalam sanubari.

  4. My dearest Azlizan,
    Have I told you that I first learned to use the words 'akhi' and 'ukhti' from you :)
    And now, 'ahsan'. So that makes you my guru! Thank you!
