In Praise of the Prophet (saws) -The face of Ahmadﷺ - Walid Lounès Bouzerar

The face of Ahmadﷺ
Like the full Moon enrobed in a pure silk cloth
Light flowing as though flooding from his blessed pores ﷺ
His blessed eyes ﷺ
Darkened as by Kohl, shadowed like the Moon’s crevices ﷺ
Those lips sweetened by the Divine Revelation ﷺ
His utterance of it a mellow articulation of sincerity ﷺ
Not artificial, not disguised
Plain and natural as the bee delivering its honey ﷺ
Melodious and pure, enrapturing who hears it ﷺ
Lustrating the heart of every listener ﷺ
Decorating it with deep tranquility and beauty ﷺ
O the generosity and care-taking of that Prophet ﷺ
Were the shame of a sinner and transgressor
From his Umma ﷺ to surface for all to see
He would shelter it under his own blessed cloak ﷺ
O the beauty of that Prophet and O the humility ﷺ
Were he to sit ﷺ amongst the destitute and outcast
You could not tell him apart due to his bashfulness ﷺ
O how we long for the Light of Ahmad to adorn us ﷺ
That we may reach our Lord with manners
That we may love through Allah and for Allah
That we may give only to please Him
O Allah – Your Generosity is unfathomable
And You have showered me with blessings over and over
What have I but You?
Convey Your peace and blessings upon
The Moon of our hearts ﷺ
The Light of our nights ﷺ
And upon his family and companions ﷺ
By the measure of Your Favors upon us
