Hazrat Nizamuddin Awlia’s r.a (Mehboob-e-Elahi)

The following is a translation of Hazrat Nizamuddin Awlia’s r.a (Mehboob-e-Elahi) famous poem in honor of the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w.s.


O breeze! turn towards Medina (and) from this well-wisher recite the Salaam.
Turn round the king of the prophets (and) with the utmost humility recite the Salaam.
Sometimes pass the gate of mercy (and) with the gate of Gabriel rule the forehead.
Salaam to the prophet of God (and) sometimes recite Salaam at the gate of peace.
Put with all respect the head of faith on the dust there.
Be one with the sweet melody of David and be acquainted with the cry of anguish.
In the assembly of the prophets recite verses from the humble being ‘Nizam’.

~ Hazrat Nizamuddin Awlia Mehboob.e.Elahi (r.a) 1238 A.D. to 1325 A.D
