`Tamanna-e Haram  ~ Desire to be in Madinah

Poetry of Hazrat Mufti Muhammad Shafee’ SB (RA)





Hazrat (RA)  says :  

`This desire and longing to be in Madinah …

`How I wish that I could be a dweller (a citizen) of Madinah Munawwarah …

`All the time, day and night, on my lips, is the Durood and Salaam upon Nabi Sallallaahu alayhi Wasallam …


`The Kalimah ‘La ilaaha illallah’ is a shield (protection) of my life and when the time comes for me to leave this world, this Kalimah must be (the words) on my tongue …

`What a great fortune it is to make Sajdah (Salaat) in the Mehraab of Rasulullah Sallallaahu alayhi Wasallam …

`Suddenly I see the Raudha Mubaarak in front of me and then proceed to stand before the Muwaajah-e-Shareef (The Raudha Mubaarak/Blessed Grave of Rasulullah Sallallaahu alayhi Wasallam) …

`And with feeling, with enjoyment, I am saying the Durood and Salaam … engrossed and consumed …


`The scene and sight of every other person standing there …

Saying “As salaatu Wassalaamu alaika Ya Rasulallaah”

`What a beautiful scene!


`I wish to be living in the city of Rasulullah Sallallaahu alayhi Wasallam …

`In Madinah, which is a Riyaadul Jannah (Garden from Jannah), should be my place of residence …

`That person that Rasulullah Sallallaahu alayhi Wasallam says “He is my Ghulaam (my Ummati, my true follower)”, then the fire of Jahannam most certainly becomes Haraam for that person. …


True `Ushaaq (True Lovers) of Allah Ta’ala and Rasulullah Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam

When a person has true `Ishq (love) for someone, then that love pulls him towards the house of the lover. Anything about the beloved, any sound, any news, will catch his eye and he will immediately want to listen to it.

When one has the desire to be close to Rasulullah Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam, then a yearning to be standing at the Raudah Mubaruk, sending Durood and Salaam upon Rasulullah Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam and a longing to be a dweller of Madinah Munawwarah resides in one’s heart. One’s heart will be attached to Madinah, even though one is situated far away from Madinah.

May Allah Ta’ala make us True `Ushaaq (True Lovers) of Himself and Rasulullah Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam
