:: Candle Post #29 :: What is the Everlasting Barakat of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.s.)? ::

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

Ya Ali Madad. On the occasion of the celebration of the birthday commemoration of our Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.s.), please accept our heartfelt Idd-e-Milad un Nabi Mubarak! Let us reflect on the status of our Holy Prophet (s.a.s.) from the following supplication of Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi:

'I ask of You that You may grant all that I have requested and entreated You for, through the one who is the foremost of primordial existence, the light of most perfect knowledge, the spirit of most eminent life, the white robe of eternal compassion, the firmament of most sublime character, whose spirit and eminence have priority and precedence, who has completed and sealed the [Divine] form and [the cycle of] prophecy, the light which brings guidance and clarification, the compassion which brings knowledge, empowerment and security, Muhammad the chosen one, the elected Envoy, the pure one who has been accepted and approved, whose prophethood is the example to be followed.
May God's blessing be upon him, and upon his family and companions, and may He give them greetings of great peace up to the Day of Reckoning.
And praise be to God, Lord of the Universes.'
[Source: Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi. The Seven Days of the Heart. Translated by Pablo Beneito and Stephen Hirtenstein. 2000. Anqa Publishing, Oxford. Pp. 37-38]

Now let us draw our inspiration from the following verses of Pir Hasan Kabirdin's Anant Akhado:

Âshâji âl Aly pêgambar châli âvyâ
âvyâ te nabijini jodji
nabi thaki sarvê âlaj châli
rahêm râya sultân
Hari ana(n)t
Oh Lord The progeny of Ali and the Prophet has come
and He (Ali) has come as a companion of the Prophet.
It is because of the Prophet that all the descendants
have come who are the all merciful honourable kings
Hari You are eternal
Âshâji âl nabini jugmâ(n)hê âvi
tinku(n) purâ srêvoji
âgal vêlâ doali âvê
tê mâ(n)hê na rahêvê chi(n)t
Hari ana(n)t
Oh Lord The progeny of the Prophet has come in this age
serve Him completely and devotedly
so that if difficult times come in the future,
you will have no worries or concerns at that time
Hari You are eternal
