Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam

An Appreciation by Siddiq Osman Noormuhammad


Of the many other salaams in Urdu, perhaps the most famous is the one composed by Khwaja Muhammad Akbar Warthi Rahmatullahi 'alaih, of India with 34 verses, given in his kitab popularly known as "Maulud Akbar". It also has the "Yaa Nabi Salaam 'Alaika" response. Its opening verses are:

Fakhray Adam Fakhray Hawa
Fakhray Nuh wa Fakhray Yahya
Fakhray Ibrahim wa Musa
Fakhray Ismail wa 'Isa

Rahmaton ke Taaj Waale
Dho Jahan ke Raaj Waale
'Arsh ke Mi'raj Waale
Aasiyon ke Laaj Waale

Hai ye Hasrat Dhar pe Aaen
Ashk kay Dharya Bahaaen
Dhaag Seenay kay Dhikhaaen
Saamnay ho Kar Sunaaen

Puree Yaa Rab ye Dua Kar
Hum Dharay Maula Pe Jaa Kar
Pehle Kuch Na'ten Suna Kar
Ye Parhen Sar ko Jukaa Kar

The pride of Adam, the pride of Hawa
The pride of Nuh, the pride of Yahya
The pride of Ibrahim and Musa
The pride of Ismail and 'Isa, 'Alayhimussalam

The possessor of the crown of mercies
The ruler of two kingdoms (living and spiritual)
One who went to 'Arsh on Mi'raj
The one who protects the dignity of sinners

Its our yearning desire to visit you
To shed tears that would fill seas
To show you our wounded hearts
To cry out in front of you

O Lord fulfil this supplication
That we should visit our patron
First we should recite a few hymns
Then recite with head bowed

Yaa Nabi Salaam 'Alaika
