Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi expresses in the most eloquent of ways his love and yearning for the Prophet of Islam ﷺ in an incredible masterpiece. Coincidentally the Arabic is compromised of 256 lines, the same number as the numerical value of the Divine name ‘Nur’ which is also a name of our Master, the Prophet of Islam ﷺ. He shows through his words the light of the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, in all its understanding and beauty through the eyes of a true lover.
May these lines be shared far and wide!

أداء للنخبة الوطنية للمديح والسماع برئاسة الاستاذ علي الرباحي
Every beautiful quality is included in him;
Every unique beauty that exists is a gift from him.
The secret of beauty was completed by him
And the meanings of the book of perfection were concluded by him.
I mould in his praise the most beautiful poems,
But it is not other than him dictating them to my mind.
I weave a cloak for him from the fabric of my rhymes,
And I embellish it with the embroidery of his qualities
All beauty and any attraction that is in it
Is borrowed with his permission from his vessels
I dashed of this poem in haste inf the month of his birth.
It is out of his generosity that he allows me today.
