Here where Allah's Beloved is!


Beware of immodesty!
Here where Allah's Beloved is!
To where the Divine look is directed;
 Maqam al-Mustafa this is!
Only if you resolve to act modestly, Nabi, go in this shrine,
There where angels go round, and whereat prophets always kiss
                                        
                                                                -Yusuf nabi(Turkish poet)



The poet Yusuf Nabi  intended to make a pilgrimage in Mecca between 1678-79.With the consent of Sultan Mehmed IV, the poet set off for the holy land with Rami Mehmed Pasha (poet's friend). The two arrived in Medina on camels just before sunrise, and Nabi was excited to finally see the tomb of the Prophet
(صلى الله عليه وسلّم). On the other side of the mahmil (a wooden frame loaded on a camel for passengers), Pasha was sleeping.


he situation made the poet feel sorry, reflecting that “we are in the land where the sun of two universes [an expression praising the Prophet and likening him to the sun of both the world and afterlife] rests. How can lying down be proper behavior?” Nabi then uttered the verses “Refrain from behaving disrespectfully/Here is the place of the beloved of God/Here is where God keeps an eye on/Here is the maqam of Mustafa 
(صلى الله عليه وسلّم).”

Pasha heard the verses and asked Nabi about them. The poet explained that they were in Medina, the holy city where the grave of the holy Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلّم) was situated, and some feelings had been stirred up within him. The two men performed their ablutions and walked towards Ravza-i Mutahhara (the tomb of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلّم ). Just then, a muezzin recited a poem from the minarets of Masjid-i Nabawi -- the poem which Nabi had just recited for the Prophetصلى الله عليه وسلّم earlier.

Nabi rushed to the muezzin and queried him on the verses and why he had recited them, informing him that he was the one who owned the verses.

The muezzin was surprised and asked: “Is your name Nabi?” Nabi answered, “Yes,” upon which the muezzin grabbed his hands and hugged him. Rami Mehmed Pasha asked the muezzin how he knew of Nabi’s name and the muezzin told them of his dream.

“Last night, I dreamt of our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلّم
. He said to me: ‘Muezzin! Don’t sleep, wake up! One of my admirers is coming to visit my tomb. Read these verses from the minaret and welcome him!’ Immediately, I woke up, performed my ablutions and rushed to the minaret, wondering who it might be that was glorified with the compliment of our Prophet
صلى الله عليه وسلّم 
.”


الّلهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ كَمَا أَمَرْتَنَا أَنْ نُصَلِّيَ عَلَيْهِ الّلهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ كَمَا هُوَ أَهْلُهُ الّلهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ كَمَا تُحِبُّ وَتَرْضَى.
 الّلهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ الأُمِّيِّ وَ آلِهِ وَأَصْحَابِهِ وَسَلِّمْ .
      اَلّلهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ كَمَا صَلَّيْتَ عَلَى إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَعَلَى آلِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَبَارِكْ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ كَمَا بَارَكْتَ عَلَى إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَعَلَى آلِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ فِي الْعَالَمِينَ إِنَّكَ حَمِيدٌ مَجِيدٌ
