DESCRIPTION

Maqām: Sīkāh-‘Ajam (with allusions to Rāst)
Commentary: The lyrics of this song come from portions of the thousand-verse Hamziyya (poem rhyming in hamza) of the
renowned Palestinian scholar Yusuf Nabahani (d. 1932). It describes the Prophet’s life and character and is frequently recited
during Mawlid celebrations to commemorate the Prophet’s (pbuh) birthday. The melody sung here is inspired by group chants of
the Shadhili-Darqawi-‘Alawi Sufi Order in Mostaghanem, Algeria. The melody has been slightly modified to fit the English lyrics
(which are a translation of the original Arabic). English lyrics and translation provided by Dr. Tim Winter.

LYRICS

Ṣalli yā Rabbi thumma sallim ‘alā man
So pray my Lord and bestow blessings upon him

Huwa li-l-khalqi raḥmatun wa-shifā’un
Who is for all mankind, a grace and a healing

Wa-‘ala l-āli wa-ṣ-ṣaḥābati jam‘an
So also on his fair Companions and kinsmen

Ma tazayyanat bi-n-nujūmi s-samā’u
With blessings that abide like the sky’s lofty ceiling.

So pray my Lord and bestow blessings upon him
Who is for all mankind, a grace and a healing

So also on his fair Companions and kinsmen
With blessings that abide like the sky’s lofty ceiling.

Accept and pity then as my intercessor
Upon the day when all need an intercessor.

And in this gloomy age keep me and my people
For in our day our power has grown faint and feeble.

For in these times the faith is once more a stranger
Thus did you once foretell, the decent in danger.

So catch us lest we fall in the pit of peril
For on this day we tire, after blunder and quarrel.
