Quenched by the Light of His Faceﷺ


The Beloved Muhammadﷺ is like the full moon
But one that neither eclipses nor it does wane
And with a light brighter than the sun at high noon
Whose quenching touch is gentler than summer rain

My heart guards my eyes in a jealous embrace
They shed tears for no other than himﷺ and his Lord
And when dry, they are quenched by the Light of his faceﷺ
Invocations of blessings, the peace is restored

Were the scent of Ahmadﷺ to descend upon a place
Its dwellers would spin in a frantic search of wonder
Thinking they must have stumbled upon Heaven’s gates
So, seeker, clear is your path on your journey yonder

O Allah, as a prayer through which you remove every pain
Convey from us Your utmost peace and blessings upon
Muhammadﷺ, and ‘Ali, Fatimah, Hassan and Husayn

One thought on “Quenched by the Light of His Faceﷺ

  1. The world can be a dark place. War, greed, racial hatred, oppression; these are expressions of social ignorance on a sweeping scale. Sometimes it feels like the world is being consumed by the forces of darkness.

    Then we have personal suffering, abuse, and selfishness – manifestations of spiritual darkness at the most intimate level. Because these ills strike at our friendships, in our homes and in our own hearts, they are even harder to deal with, than global calamities.

    There’s only one refuge, one source of protection, comfort, and guidance. The only true light comes from Allāh. Only Allāh’s light can defeat the darkness. All other promises of hope and salvation are illusions.

    Allāh says in the Qur`ān,
    ❝Allāh is the Light of the heavens and the earth.❞
    ― Al-Qur`ān, sūrah al-Nūr (The Light), Chapter 24. verse 35

    Our refuge from all of this is Allāh’s light. The following is an authentic duā’ which the Prophet (ṣall Allāhu ʿalay-hi wa-sallam) used to supplicate in sujūd:
    ❝O Allāh, place light in my heart, light in my sight, light in my hearing, light on my right hand, light on my left hand, light above me, light below me, light in front of me, light behind me, place light in my soul, and enhance light for me.❞
    ― Muslim, Book 6, Hadīth 216

    Allāh says,
    ❝Allāh is the Wali (Protector or Guardian) of those who believe. He brings them out from darkness into light.❞
    ― Al-Qur`ān, sūrah al-Baqarah (The Cow), Chapter 2, verse 257

    This light is Allāh’s guidance. We seek refuge in Allāh’s light from the darkness of the world.
