Hazrat Abu Talib (A) eulogizes Holy Prophet (S)

By: Nowar Hussain

Marking the birth anniversary (Eid Milad-on Nabi) of Chief of Prophets Prophet Muhammad bin Abdullah (peace be upon him and his pure progeny), here are the words of praise for Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him and his pure progeny) by Protector of Resalat and paternal uncle of holy Prophet, Hazrat Abu Talib (peace be upon him) in shape of a poem. It is from The Beacons of Light by At-Tabrisi:

Surely the Prophet Muhammad, son of Aminah,
Is for me like my own Child.
When he held on to the halter of my camel, I felt
compassion for him,
Even as the white camels were loaded,
Copious tears flowed from my eyes
Tears like scattered pearls
I treated him kindly as befits a close relative
And guarded well the trust of his forefathers concerning him.
I ordered him to ride among paternal uncles,
With white faces, brave swordsmen,
They traveled to the furthest known station -
Far indeed was the station where their camels lay down!
When at last the people of Busra saw him,
They met a learned monk who was keeping close watch
He related to them a true account concerning him,
And thus turned back the people of envy
A group of Jews also saw what he saw:
The shade of a white cloud and the glory of a close relative
They went seeking to kill Muhammad, and he restrained them,
And thus engaged in the best of struggle.

  "Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."MORE ..
