The most handsome of men in form,

Most truthful in word and deed;

The poet spoke true when he said:

No woman has given birth

To a child more beautiful than you;

How can our words capture your beauty,

Your splendour, your majesty and your perfection

When the likes of your companions

Resorted to create new words

To describe you;

O Messenger of Allah, from a tradition of warriors,

You were broad, strong and awe-inspiring.

They said you were of average height,

And yet when you walked amongst giants

Like Hamza and Umar,

You were taller, for you were their master.

O Messenger of Allah, O Ruby amongst stones,

Your face was radiant like the full moon,

Just as the moon guides us in darkness,

So too your noble face liberates us,

From the darkness of our own selves;

O Messenger of Allah, they said

Your hands were large, full and smooth,

How we yearn for those hands, for that touch

For that security, safety and gentleness;

An aquiline nose, beautiful and radiant

Wide set eyes, large and oriental at their ends;

O Universal Prophet, O Prophet of Mercy

Even your eyes encaptured

The diversity of your nation;

As did your complexion, neither white nor black

Rather fair, with a tinge of redness;

Your blessed hair, neither coarse nor lank

But rather between the two;

You are after all, the Prophet of

The “ummat al-wasata”; the middle nation;

O Messenger of Allah, O seal of Prophets

The seal between your shoulders,

A protection for your heart,

A guidance for Salman, a sign for Buhaira

That pigeon-egg sized mark,

How we yearn to see it, to witness it

To behold its light and beauty

And press our lips against it.

Let us be of those who behold you

Let us be sincere in that wish,

And in our desire to love;

Let us recognise you at the hawd, Let us drink

From your blessed hands;

May we work for you in this world, may we meet you

And you are pleased with us;

How we yearn for that smile, that illumination

That would stop time and light up

The heavens, all the earth,

And the universe of our souls.
