يا خير خلق الله محمّد صلى الله عليه وسلم


Muhammad – noblest of the Arabs and the non-Arabs,
Muhammad – best of all those who walk upon two feet.

Muhammad – most expansive giver of all good things,
Muhammad – the master of excellence and generosity.

Muhammad – crown of the Messengers of God, without exception,
Muhammad – in speech and word the one most true.

Muhammad – his substance watered by light,
Muhammad – a light still shining from before eternity.

Oh you, the best of Allah’s creation,
Oh you, the best of Allah’s creation,
Oh you, the best of Allah’s creation,
Muhammed صلى الله عليه وسلم .

Muhammad – to mention him brings refreshment to our souls,
Muhammad – praising him is a duty upon all people.

Muhammad – a master, whose virtues bring delight,
Muhammad – the Most Merciful fashioned him from grace.

Muhammad – the flower of the Creator, and His elect,
Muhammad – pure beyond all suspicion.

Muhammad – this world was made delightful by him being sent,
Muhammad – he came with signs and with wisdom.

Oh you, the best of Allah’s creation,
Oh you, the best of Allah’s creation,
Oh you, the best of Allah’s creation,
Muhammed صلى الله عليه وسلم .

Oh you, the best of Allah’s creation,
Oh the beloved one to Allah,
Oh the prophet of Allah,
Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم .

My Lord, forgive me and my parents, the muslim men and women, the believing men and believing women - living and those who passed away.
