Loved by The Prophet (s)
Revived the Sunnah
Coolness of our eyes
Shade of the Ummah

Jewel amongst the Folk
Gem amongst the Men
Warrior of his age
Rank beyond our ken

No hand above his
Said Ahmad Harun
Damascus danced to
This Ya’qoubi tune

Mounted on a steed
What a sight to see
Look away or else
Tremble at the knee

Charging through the night
Armies could not catch
They tried to snare him
Their plots were no match

Oppresors beware
This land is not yours
The people of Shaam
Will sacrifice scores

Wandering Sufi
Spreading his Lord’s Name
Then chose seclusion
Rejecting all fame

O grandfather Shaykh
Sayyid Ismail (r)
Help prepare us for
Munkar and Nakir
