Qadi Iyyad


Hot head and feet, still digesting lamb meat,

Wending way on cobbled stone through Suq street

Asking selected for the great man’s tomb

Approaching him and leaving tourist’s gloom

Until nothing new is left, day to day

Remains, plain, essential, a human wave

flows and eddies towards our well-known friend.

Across the court of languorous kittens,

Shade gone, brief hammer descends before bidden

Into cool and muted light collect us.

Sarcophagus serene and always thus,

Presence itself transfers to wearied hearts,

Welcome before good manners to these parts

And our hearts are soothed by its acceptance.

Hearts expanded lit up like dawning day,

The same in essence each one his own way.

How can it be other, never undone

All illumination comes from the sun

Whose unmeasured strength dispels darkened song.

We understand now it does not belong

To anyone but they belong to it.

The unseen, soft, ancient hand passes tea

Over word, tune and calméd hearts that see,

Waves overwhelm while wellspring overflows

How, why or wherefore no one ever knows.

The gift is in the power of the Giver

Regardless of the life seen by its liver

Submit, be grateful, share your blessed fate.

Du’a al-Qunut

اللَّهمَّ إنَّا نَسْتَعِينُكَ وَ نَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَ نُومِنُ بِكَ وَ نَتَوَكَّلُ عَلَيْكَ وَنُثْنِى عَلَيْكَ الْخَيْرَ كُلَّ ص

Allahumma inna nasta’inuka wa nastaghfiruka wa numinu bika wa natawakkalu ‘alalayka wa nuthni ‘alayka’l-khayra kullah

Oh allah! Truly we seek your help and your forgiveness and believe in you and praise you for all good.

نَشْكُرُكَ وَ ﻻَ نَكْفُرُكَ وَ نَخْنَعُ لَكَ وَ نَخْلَعُ وَنَتْرُكُ مَنْ يَكْفُرُكَ ص

Nashkuruka wa la nakfuka wa nakhna’u laka wa nakhla’u wa natruku man yakfuruk

We thank you and are not ungrateful to you and submit ourselves to you and surrender and abandon all who reject you.

اللَّهمَّ إيَّكَ نَعْبُدُ وَ لَكَ نُصَلِّي وَ نَسْجُدُ وَ إلَيْكَ نَسْعَى وَ نَحْفِدُ ص

Allahumma iyyaka na’budu wa laka nusalli wa nasjudu wa ilayka nas’a wa nahfidh

Oh allah you alone we worship. We pray and prostrate to you. We strive and struggle in your way.

نَرْجُو رَحْمَتَكَ وَ نَخَافُو عَذَابَكَ الْجِِدَّ صٌٌٌ إنَّ عَذَابَكَ بِالْكَافِرِينَ مُلْحِقٌ ص

Narju rahmataka wa nakhafu ‘adhabaka’l-jidd. Inna ‘adhabaka bi’l-kafirina mulhiq

We hope for your mercy and fear your harsh punishment. Certainly your punishment encircles the rejectors.

The True Shaykh – Shaykh Mawlay Murtada al-Bumas-huli


Hear it at:


Posted by on May 29, 2012 in Others Contributions



Be the slave of Allah and His Rasul; that is obeying them and no one else. This squarely lays the burden at your own door. It is subservience uniquely to the Lord of the universe, subhanahu wa ta’ala, and His beloved Messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallim. It does not matter what anyone else says or does, you are ultimately answerable to the King and His beloved Intercessor. Do not mistake this as a call to independence of creation or rebellion against it, as there are those who are above and beyond you in service of their Lord, and your true slavery will never be in conflict with theirs.
