To the Abode of Eternity

To the abode of eternity we have come
And the elect one we have visited
And in the Garden we have prayed
And we have seen Rasulallah.

I saw the people in droves
The sea of their love surge like waves
The tears of longing like cool rain
All in love with Rasulillah

So we visited him the Pure-hearted
Of greatest rank and nearness to Allah
Whoever bears him loyal love
Becomes filled with Rasulillah

Seeing him is joy followed by joy
While incense wafts and overflows

There the people of love reveal their states
And Rasulullah pardons them

Light surrounds us the secret is revealed
Goodness arrives piety is achieved
The people of Allah are fed and quenched
By witnessing Rasulallah
The night of separation is gone away
The morning of connection dawns to stay
The light of al-Mustafa highlights
Our foremost guide Rasulallah

Drinks of paradise go round from hand to hand
And in the cups lights overflow
And with this drink perfumed and filled
Rasulullah is quenching us

The hearts obtain what they had hoped
When they visit after their pilgrimage
One throng after another says
Salaamun Ya Rasulallah

See them in their place of prayer
The God of the Throne giving them gifts
Habibullah is meeting them
They visited Rasulallah

Gifts of forgiveness and secrets
For whoever visits al-Mustafa
Upon them glow sparkles of light
Coming from the Guide Rasulillah

The armies of nafs went away
The moons of guidance have risen
Rain-clouds hail filled with good
For the visitors of Rasulillah

The sun of religion guides us
To the Creator who made us
Rasulullah is calling us
We have come Ya Rasulallah

The beauty of al-Mustafa shows
Welcoming us and cheering us
It has perfumed the soul of this valley
We have witnessed Rasulallah

We have obtained intimacy
By Divine grace without the veils
We visited the Arabian liegelord
Abu al-Qasim Rasulallah

Souls are swayed by their Creator
Before the Chosen One their guide
They have received their dearest hopes
At witnessing Rasulallah

We left love of all that perishes,
At al-Mustafa’s doorstep we arrived
The connection of hearts is sealed
With the guide Rasulillah

The Gardens of Paradise we obtained
By coming and greeting TaHa
The soul of love enlivened them
With help from Rasulillah

The blessings of Allah like rain
On the Elect of highest fame
And Companions all radiant chiefs
And the House of Rasulillah

For as long as al-Ja’fari writes
And al-Mustafa’s praise is sung,
And the faces of lovers beam
With light from Rasulillah!
