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.

    This “Suspended poem in Praise of the Prophet ﷺ”, written by H.E Shaykh Muhammad al Yaqoubi, challenges the eloquence of the famous pre-Islamic Mu’allaqat – seven poems which were suspended inside the Kaaba. The Shaykh, may Allah preserve him, wrote it as an epic in praise of the Prophet ﷺ at the same level of eloquence.

    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.
