In Praise of Nobility (Seventeen)

So that man had been exhilarated
His hand the praised one had held
I swear by Allah, I truly love you
Words from the noble mouth came
If wishes were words, if they were words
These words would have been mine
Again from the lips of the blessed mouth
Such was he, full of love
Such was he, a teacher of love
Such was he, a man loved to the brim
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
Who are they better than the Prophets, the martyrs?
Yet will they not the lovers admire?
The lovers who in them run different blood
The lovers who in trade go separate ways
Yet in the love of al-Wadud they melt
In His love, they stand on the same plane
Their light, one like no other
Their shade, the shade of ar-Rahmaan
And when the man the journey had taken
To a brother he had gone
No benefits but love fiisabilillaah
Then came the message from his Lord
So does al-Khabeer love you
Such was the teachings of a man, lovely
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
And that man for whom it was said again and again
That is a man of Jannah!
The praised one had said, the companion believed
Yet he was a man not extraordinary in worship
Yet the beauty of his heart this shine brought
He would not evil wish a brother
He would not a grudge hold against another
He slept, his heart full of love, no hatred
Such was the teaching of a man, blessed
Such were the companions of a man, bright
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
Shall we not for this light strive?
Shall we not for this shade long?
Would you then love me but true?
Would you then love me but for His sake?
Would you then love me a different blood?
Would we then our hearts purify?
Would we then this grudge kill?
For that light, that shade, that love
Such was the teaching of a man, adored
Such was a man, the best model
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
This is the nobility about which I sing
This is the nobility I live to praise
This is the nobility whose love drunken me
This is the nobility I wish to see
This is the nobility I pray to touch
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
