Echoes

by Nader Khan

As a blinding light you came to us,
And just as suddenly you went away.
The universe still resonates,
With echoes of “Sall Allah ‘alaih”.

O flash of light, in the flow of time,
O sweet Medinan beloved of mine,
I speak with you in broken words,
With a broken heart, and a broken rhyme.

My life is you, and my love is you,
My connection to The Lord Above is you,
My means to earn His love is you,
My cure from distress and dismay.

[Chorus]
As a blinding light you came to us,
And just as suddenly you went away.
The universe still resonates,
With echoes of “Sall Allah ‘alaih”.

More generous there’s never been,
More beautiful was never seen,
I surrender at your doorstep
All my dunya and my deen.

O one who came in The Merciful’s sight,
With His words “Let there be light”,
Convey my broken-hearted plight,
That a glance of Mercy be cast my way.

[Chorus]
As a blinding light you came to us,
And just as suddenly you went away.
The universe still resonates,
With echoes of “Sall Allah ‘alaih”.

No eye has seen such beauty as thine
No dame has borne such a one so fine
You’re created free of flaw
As if by your own design

May The Lord, upon you, send His peace,
Salutations, blessings, that never cease,
And to us a gentle breeze,
That makes us weep our nights away.

[Chorus]
As a blinding light you came to us,
And just as suddenly you went away.
The universe still resonates,
With echoes of “Sall Allah ‘alaih”.

  1. سلام ورحمة الله وبركاته

    A beautiful poem but marred by the inappropriate words ‘blinding light’ used for the beloved Prophet peace and salutations for him forever and ever.
