I’d first heard this Urdu na’at brilliantly recited by the late Ustadh Khurshid Ahmad. It’s been one of my personal favourites for many years now. A rough translation is pasted below.
This recording is from a recent gathering of Celebrating The Prophet this past Thursday (October 6th, 2011) at SeekersHub Toronto.
Beneath the grille of your resting place
Are the blessed shades of your mercy
Whosoever desires to gaze upon paradise
Let him take a trip to gaze upon Madina
O visitor of the blessed Rowdah
This is the prayer that I send forth for you
That upon arriving at the threshold of Mustafa
May you become oblivious to the rest of the world
He alone is my well wisher
He alone, O Zahur, is my dear beloved friend
The one who, when he shall visit my grave
Will recite for me an ode in praise of The Prophet
Here I am, setting off into my grave
Convey a request to my Mustafa
That a breeze from your alleyway
Be sent to see me off as I depart
