In the Praise of the Prophet (saws)Written after Fajr, whilst visiting the Blessed People of al-Baqi', may Allah have Mercy on them, and us Walid Lounès Bouzerar

Written after Fajr, whilst visiting the Blessed People of al-Baqi', may Allah have Mercy on them, and us. Photo also taken here and now.
O Visitor of Madinah
Tread the land lightly
For here rests
The Dearest to Godﷺ
From the start to the end
Of Eternity
And he is the Master of Mankindﷺ
Speak gently
O Visitor of the City of Light
And give your heart to silence
Bask in the tranquility
In the rays of Mercy and Divine Gifts
O visitor of al-Baqi'
Who rests here
But those beloved to this Pole of Creationﷺ
Who have felt his touchﷺ
Who have been dressed in his gazeﷺ
Who have been softened by his speechﷺ
Will you laugh much and weep little?
O Visitor to the Sacred Land
Will you not reflect
On the Noble Being who tread this earthﷺ
Will you not keep him in your heart?ﷺ
And give your Soul reprieve
Give your Soul security
Give your Soul salvation
Ask for nothing less in this visit
For this is your gift if He so Wills.
- Walid Lounès Bouzerar
