Poetry in praise of The Green Dome | Mawlid Gift 2013


The Green Dome 2013 Mawlid 2013 Rabi ul Awwal 2013

The Green Dome:

The green dome, the mosque and the city are nothing to me without you…

 

When the full moon arrived, the caller was praised

The earth, the people, the city, their ranks were all raised

From a place full of fever from the chilling cold nights

To the safe asylum of faith and a citadel of lights

Your garden is in fact a piece of Paradise, so true

Where lovers flock in this life to gain proximity to you

The green dome, the mosque and the city are nothing to me without you…

 

Golden windows, the station where the peace is distributed

Granting forgiveness for the nation and loud voices are muted

The two companions there, residing in the best of homes

Under the shelter of what they say is the most exquisite of domes

But they have no need to ponder upon the colours or design

Because they are being sustained next to Allah’s most beautiful sign

The green dome, the mosque and the city are nothing to me without you…

 

The pulpit, the niche, the bench and the numerous pillars too

What worth would they have without being close to you?

Please, let them forgive me if they think I’ve said too much

But I can’t describe the feelings, the vision, never mind the touch

The palm trunk, the cemetery, the wives and the family too

Made great with Allah by virtue of who?

The green dome, the mosque and the city are nothing to me without you…

 

The Prophet, the Messenger, the Beloved, Muhammad the guide

The Master of the sons of Adam, a fact without pride

The one who Allah selected, the light to whom we adhere

I ask Allah to grant us love from you and of you, sincere

Allah sends peace and blessings upon you and His angels do too

I thank Allah for creating you and I ask to be with you

The green dome, the mosque and the city mean so much to me because of you…
