The Aadaab of Jumu’ah

1. Every Muslim should make preparations for jumu’ah from Thursday. After the asr salaat of Thursday, he should make a lot of istighfaar. He should clean his clothes and keep them ready. If he does not have any perfume in his house, then if it is possible he should try and obtain some and keep it ready so that he will not get distracted with these things on jumu’ah. The pious people of the past have stated that the person to receive the most benefit on Friday will be that person who waits for it and who makes preparations for it from Thursday. The most unfortunate person will be he who does not even know as to when Friday will fall, so much so that he will ask the people in the morning as to which day this is. Some pious people used to go and stay in the jaame musjid from the night of jumu’ah in order to make full preparations for the following day. (Ihyaa ul-Uloom, vol. 1, page 161)

2. On the day of jumu’ah, ghusl should be made and the hair of the head and the rest of the body should be thoroughly washed. It is also very virtuous to use the miswaak on this day.

3. After making ghusl, a person should wear the best clothing that he possesses, and if possible he should also apply some perfume. He should also clip his nails.

4. He should try and go very early to the jaame musjid. The earlier a person goes, the more reward he will receive. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said : “On the day of jumu’ah, the angels stand at the entrance of that musjid in which jumu’ah salaat is to be offered. They write down the name of the person who enters the musjid first, and thereafter the name of the person who follows, and they continue doing this. The person who entered first will receive the reward of sacrificing a camel in the path of Allah, the one who followed him will get the reward of sacrificing a cow, thereafter a chicken, thereafter the reward of giving an egg as charity in the path of Allah. Once the khutbah commences, the angels close the register and begin listening to the khutbah.” (Bukhari and Muslim)

In olden times, the roads and alleys used to be extremely busy in the mornings and at fajr time. All the people used to go so early to the jaame musjid and there used to be such a large crowd that it used to look like the days of eid. Later, when this habit was given up, people began saying that this is the first innovation in Islam. After writing this, Imam Ghazali rahmatullahi alayh says : “Aren’t the Muslims ashamed of themselves that the Jews and Christians go so early in the morning to their synagogues and churches on Saturdays and Sundays. Those who are businessmen go so early to the bazaars in order to do their buying and selling. Why don’t the Muslims do the same?” The reality of the situation is that the Muslims have totally reduced the value of this blessed day. They do not even know what day this is, and what a high status it has. How sad it is that the day which was more valuable than eid in the eyes of Muslims of the past, which Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was proud of and the day which was not granted to the previous nations has become so dishonoured at the hands of Muslims today and it is such a great ingratitude to the favour of Allah Ta’ala that the consequence of all this can be seen with our very eyes.”

5. By going walking for the jumu’ah salaat, one gets the reward of fasting for one year for every step that he takes. (Tirmidhi)

6. On Fridays, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to recite Surah Alif Laam Meem Sajdah and Surah Hal Ataa, in the fajr salaat. These Surahs should therefore be occassionally recited in the fajr salaat on Fridays. Occassionally they should be left out so that people do not regard their recitation as wajib.

7. For the jumu’ah salaat, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to recite the following Surahs : al-Jumu’ah and al-Munaafiqun, or al-A’la and al-Ghaashiyah.

8. There is a lot of reward in reciting Surah Kahf either before the jumu’ah salaat or after it. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said : “The person who recites Surah Kahf on Fridays, a nur will appear for him from below the arsh as high as the skies. This light will help him in the darkness of the day of resurrection. And all the sins which he may have committed from the last Friday till this Friday will be forgiven.” (Sharh Sifrus-Sa’aadah) The ulama have written that this Hadith refers to minor sins because major sins are not forgiven without making taubah.

9. There is more reward in reciting durood on Fridays than on other days. It has been mentioned in the Hadith that durood should be recited abundantly on Fridays.


A very great part of the teachings of the Messenger of Allah (Sal Allahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) concerns man’s social life, his day to day living, his conduct and his dealing with other men. In some ways, this department is more important and excellent than other affairs becuase it is instrumental in makin man human or, in other words, shaping him into a true human being. Without achieving perfection in this department, the other fields are meaningless even is anyone gains excellence in them. It is the policy of narrators of Hadith to collect the Ahadith on this subject in the Book of Adab (Babb al Adab) and in every authentic book of Hadith this chapter is included under the heading Book of adab. Imaam Bukhari (May Allah have mercy on him) is correctly known as Ameer al-Mu’mineen fi al-Hadith. His position and rank is confirmed and well known among the high ranking Ulema and Scholars of Hadith, and the layman among muslims too are not unaware of his high standing. He recognised the importance of this section of the Hadith of the Prophet (Sal Allahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) and composed a seperable book on social manners quite apart from the Saheeh Bukhari. Thereby he bestowed a great favour on the muslim community and he gave the book the title al-Adab al-Mufrad. This book was always well known to the Ulemaa and it has been translated into other languages too….

Some of the peculiarities of this book as described by the exegete of Bukhari, al-Hafiz ibn Hajar al-Asqalani are:

  1. About half the number of Ahadith in al-adab al-Mufrad match the standard of soundness set for Saheeh Bukhari and the remaining match the standard of Saheeh Muslim. They are stronger than the remaining books of Sihah Sittah
  2. Those Ahadith that were narrated in Bukhari without sanad have been narrated in this book with proper sanad
  3. Some words or phrases in many of the Ahadith cause great scholars to ponder over their correct interpretation. In this book, they have been very clearly defined
  4. There are many narratives in this book that are not found elsewhere

…Let no Muslim family go without reading it. It should be enough in schools and Madrasahs to use this book to impart the teachings of the Messenger (Sal Allahu Alayhi Wa Sallam)

Statement on Current Vegetarian Status


As Salaamu Alaikum, as many are aware and worried that Masterfoods the makers of many chocolate that many muslims eat around the world had decided to source their products from non-halaal sources. However due to many complaints (and off course the companies worry for its sales) Masterfoods the makers have changed their mind (well slightly). 

At Mars UK we recently changed the source of some of the whey which is used in some of our chocolate products. We have received lots of feedback that this decision has made it difficult for some of you, especially those of you who are vegetarians, to continue to enjoy our products.

We made a mistake. We apologise.

The consumer is our boss. Therefore we listen to you and your feedback.

As a company we value openness, honesty and diversity and we believe that anybody should be able to choose freely from our range of chocolate brands.

But being sorry isn’t enough. Therefore we commit to you today, that we at Mars UK will ensure that a selection of your favourite brands – Mars bars, Snickers bars, Galaxy and Maltesers, will be suitable for vegetarians in the near future. To this effect we are starting to change our manufacturing process today.

We will keep you informed of our progress against this commitment through regular updates on this website.

Please accept our apology

Added by datruth: Masterfoods will still be using the whey products in a few of their chocolates:
Q3.You make lots of other brands – what about the suitability of them?

A3.Other products will also be suitable for vegetarians including Minstrels, Revels, and Ripple. However, Twix, Bounty and Celebrations will continue not to be suitable for vegetarians.

SubhanAllah the week has gone so fast, and the night is almost upon us, and what a special
 night the night of Jumu’ah SubhanAllah. Becuase it is such a wonderful night and the day is 
such a special day I thought I would share some words about this time of the week from the 
works of Mujjadid Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (May Allah have mercy on him) who 
has written a little treatsie on the topic of Jumu’ah and eid.
Remember me in your duas Insha’Allah

Rahmatullah Alaihi Taken From:

Jumu’ah Salaat

Allah Ta’ala does not like anything more than salaat. It is for this reason that we do not find such great emphasis for any other form of ibaadah in the pure Shariah. It is for this reason that Allah Ta’ala has specified this ibaadah five times daily as a form of gratitude for His endless bounties. These bounties which commence from birth right until death – in fact they continue after death and commence even before birth.

Since Friday has been accorded the most amount of merits as opposed to other days, so much so that the father of all mankind Hadrat Aadam alayhis salaam was created on this day, a special salaat was therefore ordered for this day. We have already mentioned the benefits and wisdom of jama’at. It has also been made clear that the bigger the jama’at the more those benefits will become apparent. This will only be possible if the people of all the different areas and the residents of that place get together and offer their salaat collectively. This would have been extremely difficult if it were to be done five times daily. Because of all this, the Shariah has specified such a day in the week in which the people of all the different residential areas and villages can get together and fulfil this ibaadah. Since jumu’ah is the most virtuous and noble of days, this ibaadah has been specified for this day. Allah Ta’ala had also specified this day as a day of ibaadah for the previous nations. But because of their bad-luck, they disputed and differed with regards to it. The result of this dispute was that they were deprived of this great bounty and this ummah has been favoured with this bounty. The Jews set aside Saturday on the basis that Allah Ta’ala had completed creating the entire creation on this day. The Christians set aside Sunday thinking that this is the day when Allah Ta’ala commenced with the creation. Because of this, both these groups make numerous arrangements on both these days – leaving all work on these days and spending it in worship. It is because of this that all the offices are closed on Sundays in Christian countries.

Insha’Allah next Jumu’ah I will post up the Virtues of Jumu’ah

As Salaamu Alaikum,

Just wanted to make my first post on this blog an important one and so I wanted to share some points on Istiqamah (steadfastness). This is a very important aspect of deen and something we find really hard however the blessings of being steadfast in the deen are many as outlined in the Quran and in the Ahadith of Rasool sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. For this purpose I will mention these:

In Surat Fussilat (Surah 41) Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’aala says:“Verily, those who say: `Our Rubb is Allah (Alone),’ and then they stand firm, on them the angels will descend (at the time of their death) (saying): ‘Fear not, nor grieve! But receive the glad tidings of Jannah which you have been promised! We have been your friends in the life of this world and are (so) in the Hereafter. Therein you shall have (all) that your inner-selves desire, and therein you shall have (all) for which you ask. An entertainment from (Allah), the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”’

And in Surah Al Ahqaf (Surah 46) Allah Ta’aala also mentions about steadfastness, “Verily, those who say: `Our Rubb is (only) Allah,’ and thereafter stand firm and straight (on the Islamic Faith of Monotheism), on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. Such shall be the dwellers of Jannah, abiding therein (forever), – a reward for what they used to do.”

And the Ahadith are not many, however they are very important.

In the Sahih of Imaam Muslim on the Authority of Sufyan ibn Abdullah al Thaqafi (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I said, “O Messenger of Allah, tell me something of Islam which I will not ask anyone else about it.” He (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Say, `I believe in Allah’ and then be steadfast”

In another narration of this same hadith the companion asked (to the nearest meaning)

 what then should I most fear, and the Prophet sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam pointed to his tongue.

So as we can see Istiqamah is very important in our life,

and in fact it is an essential part of deen.

The weakness of us as human beings with regards to our Imaan and our actions is that we fluctuate. For some only when we are in trials and hardships do we look to Allah Ta’aala or for some its vica versa, we need to be steadfast on the deen and worship Allah and follow the Prophet sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam in all our deeds no matter what state we are in.

So how can we become steadfast?

Insha’Allah I’ll try to outline a few ways:

  • Being truthful and keeping to our promises
  • Having patience in hardship and afflictions
  • Be moderate, not going from one extreme to the other taking the middle path not doing more than we can handle in terms of Ibadah
  • Having strong faith in the promise of Allah Ta’aala that He will give success to this religion and to those who remain patient and steadfast “Truly, Allah is with the patient”
  • Making effort towards giving success to the muslims in whatever way we can  “Verily Allah will assist those who assist Him,verily Allah is Most-Powerful, Most-Honourable”
  • Engage in Dhikr, by doing so we become aware that Allah can see all that we do “and while you see Him not yet truly He sees you”(Muslim) and by doing Dhikr our hearts become at peace “Verily in the remembrance of Allah do the hearts find true contentment” (Surah Ar-Ra’d)
  • Listening to the stories of the Prophets including our own Prophet sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam and of the pious people of our Ummah such as the Sahabah (May Allah be pleased with them all) and the pious people that followed them as this will strengthen the heart.
  • Know that all forms of sins can destroy steadfastness including lying, transgression, shirk, backbiting etc
  • Dua – all our hearts are in the control of Allah Ta’aala. The companions once asked our mother Umm Salamah concerning which dua the Prophet sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam used to recite the most, she narrated the event that she asked the Prophet sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam why he used to recite this prayer much and he said to her: “Indeed the hearts of the whole of mankind are between the two fingers of Rahman, Allah flips them and transforms them all the time so I pray ‘Allahumma muqallibal quloob, thabbit qalbi ala deenik’.” (translated: Oh Allah, the turner/transformer of the hearts, turn my heart towards your religion) and also we have the dua of the Quran that we can recite “Rabbana, la tuzigh quloobana ba’da ‘idhhadaytana wa hablana mil ladunka rahmah, innaka antal Wahhab” (Translated: Our Lord, do not cause our hearts to stray after granting us guidance (hidayat) and gift us from your (special) mercy, You are the only Bestower.)

Jazak Allahu Khairan for reading I hope you enjoyed my first post Insha’Allah the first of many, don’t forget to remember me and all the muslims in your humble duas!!

ليس الغريب

The Stranger IS Not..

قصيدة ….ليس الغريب

لَيْسَ الغَريبُ غَريبَ الشَّأمِ واليَمَنِ
إِنَّ الغَريبَ غَريبُ اللَّحدِ والكَفَنِ
1) The stranger is not the stranger to Yemen or Shaam
But the stranger is the stranger to the grave and the coffin

إِنَّ الغَريِبَ لَهُ حَقٌّ لِغُرْبَتـِهِ
على الْمُقيمينَ في الأَوطــانِ والسَّكَنِ
2) Verily the stranger has rights for his absence
Over the residents of the dwellings & homelands.

لاتنهـــرن غريب حال غربته
الدهـــر ينهــــره بالـــــذل والمحــن
3) Don’t chase away the outlander in his state of unfamiliarity
For time is also chasing him with hardship & distress

سَفَري بَعيدٌ وَزادي لَنْ يُبَلِّغَنـي
وَقُوَّتي ضَعُفَتْ والمـوتُ يَطلُبُنـي
4) My travels are far and my provisions will not suffice me
My strength has weakened and death is calling unto me.

وَلي بَقايــا ذُنوبٍ لَسْتُ أَعْلَمُها
الله يَعْلَمُهــا في السِّرِ والعَلَنِ
5) I still have sins which I know not of
Allah knows of them; those made in secret & in manifest

مـَا أَحْلَمَ اللهَ عَني حَيْثُ أَمْهَلَني
وقَدْ تَمـادَيْتُ في ذَنْبي ويَسْتُرُنِي
6) How merciful has Allah been to me by giving me respite
And I have increased in sins but Allah has always shielded me

تَمُرُّ سـاعـاتُ أَيّـَامي بِلا نَدَمٍ
ولا بُكاءٍ وَلاخَـوْفٍ ولا حـَزَنِ
7) The hours of my days pass by without regret
No crying, no fear, no sadness

أَنَـا الَّذِي أُغْلِقُ الأَبْوابَ مُجْتَهِداً
عَلى المعاصِي وَعَيْنُ اللهِ تَنْظُرُنـي
8) I am the one who closes the doors with fatigue
on disobedience, & The Eye of Allah watches over me..

يَـا زَلَّةً كُتِبَتْ في غَفْلَةٍ ذَهَبَتْ
يَـا حَسْرَةً بَقِيَتْ في القَلبِ تُحْرِقُني
9) O’ that which was written in a moment of heedlessness
O’ the sorrow which remains in my heart is burning me.

دَعْني أَنُوحُ عَلى نَفْسي وَأَنْدِبُـهـا
وَأَقْطَعُ الدَّهْرَ بِالتَّذْكِيـرِ وَالحَزَنِ
10) Leave me to bewail myself and weep
and pass the time in sadness and remembrance.

دَعْ عَنْكَ عَذْلي يَا مَنْ كان يَعْذِلُني
لَوْ كُنْتَ تَعْلَمُ مَا بي كُنْت تَعْذُرُني
11) Leave off your Blaming of me O’ Ye who do so..
If you were but to know my situation you would have excused me..

دَعْني أَسِحُّ دُمُوعاً لا انْقِطَاعَ لَهَا
فَهَلْ عَسَى عَبْرَةٌ مِنْهَا تُخَلِّصُني
12) Let me cry out tears that have no ending to them
for there will be no lesson that will set me free

كَأَنَّني بَينَ تلك الأَهلِ مُنطَرِحــَاً
عَلى الفِراشِ وَأَيْديهِمْ تُقَلِّبُنــي
13)It is As though I am with that family, laying..
Upon the mattress with their hands turning me over.

وَقد أَتَوْا بِطَبيبٍ كَـيْ يُعالِجَنـي
وَلَمْ أَرَ الطِّبَّ هـذا اليـومَ يَنْفَعُني
14) And they came to me with a doctor that he may cure me..
But of today I think not that medicine will benefit me..

واشَتد نَزْعِي وَصَار المَوتُ يَجْذِبُـها
مِن كُلِّ عِرْقٍ بِلا رِفقٍ ولا هَوَنِ
15) My sufferings increased and death began to pull at me ..
From every vein, without ease or comfort..

واستَخْرَجَ الرُّوحَ مِني في تَغَرْغُرِها
وصـَارَ رِيقي مَريراً حِينَ غَرْغَرَني
16) My soul was then removed from me with a gurgle..
And my saliva became bitter at that point..

وَغَمَّضُوني وَراحَ الكُلُّ وانْصَرَفوا
بَعْدَ الإِياسِ وَجَدُّوا في شِرَا الكَفَنِ
17) They then shut my eyes and left me…
after a long moment of despair,…. they hurried to the purchase of the shroud

وَقـامَ مَنْ كانَ حِبَّ النّاسِ في عَجَلٍ
نَحْوَ المُغَسِّلِ يَأْتينـي يُغَسِّلُنــي
18) And he who was dearest to me got up in a hurry..
To summon the person who was to wash me..

وَقــالَ يـا قَوْمِ نَبْغِي غاسِلاً حَذِقاً
حُراً أَرِيباً لَبِيبـاً عَارِفـاً فَطِنِ
19) He said: O’ my people we have attained a Washer who is skillful, clever, bright & intelligent..

فَجــاءَني رَجُلٌ مِنْهُمْ فَجَرَّدَني
مِنَ الثِّيــابِ وَأَعْرَاني وأَفْرَدَني
20) So then one of the men came and removed my clothing..
He undressed me and denuded me…

وَأَوْدَعوني عَلى الأَلْواحِ مُنْطَرِحـاً
وَصـَارَ فَوْقي خَرِيرُ الماءِ يَنْظِفُني
21) They then placed me on top of a board
And the sound of water above me began to clean me

وَأَسْكَبَ الماءَ مِنْ فَوقي وَغَسَّلَني
غُسْلاً ثَلاثاً وَنَادَى القَوْمَ بِالكَفَنِ
22)He poured the water on top of me and washed me..
Three times, before calling out to the people for the Shroud..

وَأَلْبَسُوني ثِيابـاً لا كِمامَ لهـا
وَصارَ زَادي حَنُوطِي حيـنَ حَنَّطَني
23) They shrouded me in a sleeveless garment..
And my provisions became the embalmment in which they embalmed me

وأَخْرَجوني مِنَ الدُّنيـا فَوا أَسَفاً
عَلى رَحِيـلٍ بِلا زادٍ يُبَلِّغُنـي
24) They Bore me towards my journey Out of this World, Oh How Sorrowful!!
Will be this journey for which I have no provisions to take along with me.

وَحَمَّلوني على الأْكتـافِ أَربَعَةٌ
مِنَ الرِّجـالِ وَخَلْفِي مَنْ يُشَيِّعُني
25) Upon their shoulders, they carried me, Four….
Men, and behind me are those who come to bid me farewell

وَقَدَّموني إِلى المحرابِ وانصَرَفوا
خَلْفَ الإِمـَامِ فَصَلَّى ثـمّ وَدَّعَني
26) They set me before the mihraab then turned away from me
Behind the Imaam they went and he prayed on me then bade me farewell

صَلَّوْا عَلَيَّ صَلاةً لا رُكوعَ لهـا
ولا سُجـودَ لَعَلَّ اللـهَ يَرْحَمُني
27) They prayed over me a prayer consisting of neither Rukoo’ nor Sujood
Asking that Allah may have Mercy upon me.

وَأَنْزَلوني إلـى قَبري على مَهَلٍ
وَقَدَّمُوا واحِداً مِنهـم يُلَحِّدُنـي
28) They lowered me into my grave slowly
And one of them came forward to place me in the Lahd

وَكَشَّفَ الثّوْبَ عَن وَجْهي لِيَنْظُرَني
وَأَسْكَبَ الدَّمْعَ مِنْ عَيْنيهِ أَغْرَقَني
29) He raised the garment from my face to gaze upon me
And the tears spilt from his eyes awashing me

فَقامَ مُحتَرِمــاً بِالعَزمِ مُشْتَمِلاً
وَصَفَّفَ اللَّبِنَ مِنْ فَوْقِي وفـارَقَني
30) Then he stood, honoring me, firm and resolute
And lined the bricks on my body then left me

وقَالَ هُلُّوا عليه التُّرْبَ واغْتَنِموا
حُسْنَ الثَّوابِ مِنَ الرَّحمنِ ذِي المِنَنِ
31) And he said “Throw the dirt upon him and reap
The great rewards from Ar-Rahmaan, The Most Gracious”

في ظُلْمَةِ القبرِ لا أُمٌّ هنــاك ولا
أَبٌ شَفـيقٌ ولا أَخٌ يُؤَنِّسُنــي
32) In the darkness of the grave, no mother is there nor,
Is there an affectionate father, or a brother to comfort me

فَرِيدٌ .. وَحِيدُ القبرِ، يــا أَسَفـاً
عَلى الفِراقِ بِلا عَمَلٍ يُزَوِّدُنـي
33) Alone….The only inhabitant of the Grave Oh how Sorrowful!!
Am I on parting the world bearing no Deeds to provision me.

وَهالَني صُورَةً في العينِ إِذْ نَظَرَتْ
مِنْ هَوْلِ مَطْلَعِ ما قَدْ كان أَدهَشَني
34) And a sight which beheld my eye struck terror into me.
From a place of terror it came and startled me..”

مِنْ مُنكَرٍ ونكيرٍ مـا أَقولُ لهم
قَدْ هــَالَني أَمْرُهُمْ جِداً فَأَفْزَعَني
35) Munkar and Nakeer, what shall I say to them?
The thought of them strikes terror into me, it causes me fear

وَأَقْعَدوني وَجَدُّوا في سُؤالِهـِمُ
مَـالِي سِوَاكَ إِلهـي مَنْ يُخَلِّصُنِي
36) And they made me to sit and put forth their questions
I have none other Than You now O Lord to deliver me!!.

فَامْنُنْ عَلَيَّ بِعَفْوٍ مِنك يــا أَمَلي
فَإِنَّني مُوثَقٌ بِالذَّنْبِ مُرْتَهــَنِ
37) So bestow upon me from your Mercy O Lord, How I hope in You!!
For verily I am fettered in my sins, I am confined by them

تَقاسمَ الأهْلُ مالي بعدما انْصَرَفُوا
وَصَارَ وِزْرِي عَلى ظَهْرِي فَأَثْقَلَني
38) The relatives have divided my wealth amongst them after leaving me.
And my sins are now upon my back, burdening me

واستَبْدَلَتْ زَوجَتي بَعْلاً لهـا بَدَلي
وَحَكَّمَتْهُ فِي الأَمْوَالِ والسَّكَـنِ
39) My wife has taken another husband in my place
And she has appointed him as overseer over my wealth and my home

وَصَيَّرَتْ وَلَدي عَبْداً لِيَخْدُمَهــا
وَصَارَ مَـالي لهم حـِلاً بِلا ثَمَنِ
40) She has made my children into servants to bid unto her needs
And my wealth has become to them a worthless means of enjoyment

فَلا تَغُرَّنَّكَ الدُّنْيــا وَزِينَتُها
وانْظُرْ إلى فِعْلِهــا في الأَهْلِ والوَطَنِ
41) So let not this World and its adornments deceive you.
And look at its (evil) effects in your family and homeland

وانْظُرْ إِلى مَنْ حَوَى الدُّنْيا بِأَجْمَعِها
هَلْ رَاحَ مِنْها بِغَيْرِ الحَنْطِ والكَفَنِ
42) And look at the one who collects the wealth of this Dunya in abundance
Will he depart from this world bearing other than the death shroud and embalmment?

خُذِ القَنـَاعَةَ مِنْ دُنْيَاك وارْضَ بِها
لَوْ لم يَكُنْ لَكَ إِلا رَاحَةُ البَدَنِ
43) Take from the dunya that which suffices you and be contented with that
Even if you were to have naught but good health

يَـا زَارِعَ الخَيْرِ تحصُدْ بَعْدَهُ ثَمَراً
يَا زَارِعَ الشَّرِّ مَوْقُوفٌ عَلَى الوَهَنِ
44) O ye who sow good, you will reap the fruit of your efforts.
O ye who sow evil you will find yourselves overcome with grief

يـَا نَفْسُ كُفِّي عَنِ العِصْيانِ واكْتَسِبِي
فِعْلاً جميلاً لَعَلَّ اللهَ يَرحَمُني
45) O soul of mine, abstain from sinning and attain instead
Deeds which are Beautiful, for which Allah may be merciful towards me

يَا نَفْسُ وَيْحَكِ تُوبي واعمَلِي حَسَناً
عَسى تُجازَيْنَ بَعْدَ الموتِ بِالحَسَنِ
46) O soul of mine, Woe upon you! Turn towards your lord in Repentance, and do that which is good
So that you will be recompensed after your death with that which is delightful

ثمَّ الصلاةُ على الْمُختـارِ سَيِّدِنـا
مَا وَضّـأ البَرْقَ في شَّامٍ وفي يَمَنِ
47) Lastly sending prayers upon the Chosen one, Our Sayyid (leader)

والحمدُ لله مُمْسِينَـا وَمُصْبِحِنَا
بِالخَيْرِ والعَفْوْ والإِحْســانِ وَالمِنَنِ
48) All praise is unto Allah, May he fill our days and nights with that which is Good, with forgiveness
With Ihsaan and Grace.
