By His Eminence Shaykh Muhammad Al-Yaqoubi
The poems presented here are part of a necklace of jewels of fifty poems, to appear under the title “The Lights of the Spring” (أنوارُ الربيع). This new poetry collection, written by His Eminence Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi, is dedicated entirely to the Messenger of Allah ﷺ, praising him, describing him and his character, on yearning to Madinah to visit him and expressing the immense love that the Shaykh has for him ﷺ. It will be the second poetry collection of the Shaykh Muhammad Al-Yaqoubi to be published, the first being “In the Shade of the Levant” which contains poems dedicated to Sham.
معلقة المديح النبوي
The English translation will come soon in shaa Allah.
The poem begins:
Greetings of the night of the Noble Birth
From a heart of one passionately in love with the Elect
The Love for the Prophet entered the precincts
of its breast in his youth, then stayed there ….
And the last line of it reads:
The mention of the beloved is the best nourishment
for a lover who fasted from turning to other than Him.
