The Night Journey and Ascension Poem By Ahmad Shawky


God conveyed you by night to the Farthest Mosque,
Where His angels and Messengers stood gathered to receive you.
When you strode in, they thronged around you, their master,
Like stars around the full moon, or troops around their flag.
Each one of noble station, they followed you in prayer,
For whoever follows God’s beloved will triumph.
Passing close by them, you traversed the heavens—or what lies above them—
On a luminous mount with a bridle of pearl
Yours was a mount that, due to your might and dignity, has no equal
Among swift steeds or hard-treading she-camels that leave traces on
the ground.
Burāq is of the Maker’s will and of His make,
And God’s power is above all suspicion and doubt
Until you reached a heaven to which
No wing can fly, no foot can walk.
As if a voice had said, “Let every prophet stand according to his rank,”
And, “O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلّم , this is God’s throne, so touch it!”
You have written out the sciences for both religion and the world,
O reader of the Tablet! O holder of the Pen!
Your mind comprehends the secrets of both religion and the world;
The stores of science and knowledge were laid open before you.
Your closeness to God has multiplied beyond reckoning
The pendants of favor bestowed upon you, and the necklaces of grace
