Hearts melt when the Beloved of Allah is mentioned.

Habib Kadhim al-Saqqaf

I desired to praise the Chosen One and was hindered
By my own inability to grasp the extent of his glory.
How can one such as I measure an ocean, when the ocean is vast?
And how can one such as I count the stones and the stars?
If all of my limbs were to become tongues, even then –
Even then I could not begin to praise him as I desired.
And if all of creation gathered together in an attempt
To praise him, even then they would stint in his due.
I have altogether ceased trying – awestruck, clinging to courtesy,
Tempered by timidity, glorifying his most exalted rank.
Indeed, sometimes silence holds within it the essence of eloquence,
And often speech merely fodder for the faultfinder.

Ibn Juzayy al-Kalbi

Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri

The Prophet's character was termed tremendous because his concern was for God alone.

Imam Junayd al-Baghdadi

I am the slave of the Master of Prophets
And my fealty to him has no beginning.
I am a slave of his slave, and of his slave’s slave,
And so forth endlessly,
For I do not cease to approach the door
Of his good pleasure among the beginners.
I proclaim among people the teaching of his high attributes,
And sing his praises among the poets.
Perhaps he shall tell me: You are a noted friend
Of mine, a truly excellent beautifier of my tribute.
Yes, I would sacrifice my soul for the dust of his sanctuary.
His favor should be that he accept my sacrifice.
He has triumphed who ascribes himself to him!
- Not that he needs such following,
For he is not in need of creation at all,
While they all need him without exception.
He belongs to Allah alone, Whose purified servant he is,
As his attributes and names have made manifest;
And every single favor in creation comes from Allah
To him, and from him to everything else.

Yusuf Nabhani

In a nation where the disbelievers sought Heaven from the idols, the Messenger of Allah [Prophet Muhammad] taught them that Heaven can be found through a simple smile.

Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri

If I were to receive a pair of the blessed prophetic sandals to place on my head, then I shall consider myself no less than a fully crowned king.


A fundamental aim of Mawlid al-Nabi a is to attain love and proximity of the Prophet and to revive the believer’s relationship with his most revered person.

Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri

Unable and crippled I am
As I gaze into the vastness
The vastness that harbors your praise
And glories of the best of creation...
If I tried to spell..
A drop of ink from your love
Ma quill would burn in shame
for your love match no words...ya rasoolullah!

Über des Propheten Gebein ist jedes Staubkorn
ein Pfeiler von Licht,
Aufrecht von der Kuppel des Grabes
Bis hin zu der Kuppel des Himmels ...
Und jene Ehrfurcht, die
wie Deine Macht die Stirnen sich neigen läßt
zeichnet im Horizont einen höheren Horizont
von Händen und Lippen
der wogt "Im Namen Gottes",
Dein ist das Lob
Dein ist der Dank
Dein ist der Ruhm
Dein ist das Reich
Der Du die Wohltat gibst, o Du der alles besitzt!
Hier sind wir zu Deinem Dienst, Du der keine Gefährten hat
Hier sind wir zu Deinem Dienst, Du der keine Gefährten hat.
Keine Glut mehr in unseren Knochen, noch Asche,
Kein Schnee, keine Schwärze;
Nicht Unglauben mehr, und Anbetung nicht.
Erniedrigung ward Gewohnheit, und Schwäche ohne Licht ...
O Herr,
Du lehrtest uns Liebe,
Lehr uns den Willen, der Mauern bricht!
