Madinah

Whoever has longing for Muhammad in his heart,
Wherever he be, he is in Medina.
Even the roses do not possess such a fragrance
As there is in your sweat, kind sir!
Noble sir, the wealth [resulting] from obedience to you
Remains in the treasuries of Muslim hearts.
Thinking of you is a part of faith;
Pleasure lies in drinking from the goblet of [Your] love.
Qamar, whoever does not possess love of Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلّم,
He is neither among the dead nor the living!

(Translation of an Urdu poem written by Qamar)
