|In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the Worlds. Most Gracious, Most Merciful, Master of the Day of Judgment. Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek. Show us the straight way. The way of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace, Those whose portion is not wrath and who go not astray.
(Qur’an, 1:1-7 [Al-Fatiha])
In the name of Allah,
The Beneficent, The Merciful
Peace be on you, O the son of the Messenger of Allah!
Peace be on you, O the son of the Ameer ul Moomineen!
Peace be on you, O the son of the truthful pure Fatimah,
the leader of the women of the worlds!
Peace be on you, O my Mawlaa! O Aba Abdillah,
and the mercy and blessings of Allah!
I bear witness that you established the prayers, gave the prescribed share to the needy, commanded to do that which is right and lawful, not to do that which is wrong and unlawful, studied and cherished the ideas of the Book as ought to be, strived in the way of Allah, leaving no stone unturned, while directing affairs in the light of the boundaries laid down by Allah, exercised self-control bravely in the midst of offensive provocations, till the inevitable came unto you. I bear witness that those who opposed you and waged war against you, those who abandoned you, and those who killed you, are the accursed as per the declaration of the Prophet whom no one gave lessons. Verily, whoso tells a lie is a loser. Curse of Allah be on those who persecuted you, from among the pioneers and the followers, ever growing tormenting punishment. I have come to you O my Mawlaa the son of the Messenger of Allah, for your “ziyaarat”, fully aware of your rights, closely attached to your friends, hostile to your enemies, attentive and alive to the guidance which you had and made known, mindful of the waywardness which leads to your opposition, so, speak on my behalf to your Lord.
Peace be on you, O the decisive argument of Allah on His earth and in His heaven. Blessings of Allah be on your refined soul and pure body, and peace be on you,
O my Mawlaa also mercy and blessings of Allah.
