Sami Yusuf : ‘Al-Mu’allim’

22 Oct


Yesterday i was surfying thorugh tv channels and
heard this
beautiful Naat Shareef,
excellent stuff.

“We once had a Teacher
The Teacher of teachers,
He changed the world for the better
And made us better creatures
Oh Allah we’ve shamed ourselves
We’ve strayed from Al-Mu’allim,
Surely we’ve wronged ourselves
What will we say in front him?
Oh Mu’allim…

Chorus
He was Muhammad salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam,
Muhammad, mercy upon Mankind,
He was Muhammad salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam,
Muhammad, mercy upon Mankind,
Teacher of all Mankind.
Abal Qasim [one of the names of the Prophet]
Ya Habibi ya Muhammad
(My beloved O Muhammad)
Ya Shafi’i ya Muhammad
(My intercessor O Muhammad)
Khayru khalqillahi Muhammad
(The best of Allah’s creation is Muhammad)
Ya Mustafa ya Imamal Mursalina
(O Chosen One, O Imam of the Messengers)
Ya Mustafa ya Shafi’al ‘Alamina
(O Chosen One, O intercessor of the worlds)
He prayed while others slept
While others ate he’d fast,
While they would laugh he wept
Until he breathed his last,
His only wish was for us to be
Among the ones who prosper,
Ya Mu’allim peace be upon you,
Truly you are our Teacher,
Oh Mu’allim..

Chorus
Ya Habibi ya Muhammad
(My beloved O Muhammad)
Ya Shafi’i ya Muhammad
(My intercessor O Muhammad)
Ya Rasuli ya Muhammad
(O My Messenger O Muhammad)
Ya Bashiri ya Muhammad
(O bearer of good news O Muhammad)
Ya Nadhiri ya Muhammad
(O warner O Muhammad)
‘Ishqu Qalbi ya Muhammad
(The love of my heart O Muhammad)
Nuru ‘Ayni ya Muhammad
(Light of my eye O Muhammad)
He taught us to be just and kind
And to feed the poor and hungry,
Help the wayfarer and the orphan child
And to not be cruel and miserly,
His speech was soft and gentle,
Like a mother stroking her child,
His mercy and compassion,
Were most radiant when he smiled

Chorus
Abal Qasim [one of the names of the Prophet]
Ya Habibi ya Muhammad
(My beloved O Muhammad)
Ya Shafi’i ya Muhammad
(My intercessor O Muhammad)
Khayru khalqillahi Muhammad
(The best of Allah’s creation is Muhammad)
Ya Mustafa Ya Imamal Mursalina
(O Chosen One O Imam of the Messengers)
Ya Mustafa ya Shafi’al ‘Alamina
(O Chosen One O intercessor of the worlds)”

Masha ALLAH, an excellent selection of words.
Worth listening to i must say.

    Mashallh this is the great and heart touching naat i have ever heard in my whole life but in this music is also used, this is not correct. Because there will be devil where ever the music is there… It would be great if it is without music, whoever had composed this naat , its my sincere advise to you to please took out the music of this naat……. But who ever wrote this naat he wrote excellent…..may Allah bless him.

    thiks for so much

    Thanks for the translation- i didnt understand most of the words when i saw this naat on TV.

    I do believe that Sami Yousaf is awesome- but in order to make the message a bit easier to understand, a style that flows better in english, perhaps, should be adopted.

    Just to make it easier to understand for imbeciles like me. 😛

    hmmmm that’s a new one, never heard anyone complain about it before, but i guess you’re right, you are truly what you call yourself, a fool! hehehehehe :p no offense though! will try to convey your msg to Sami Yusuf!

      I like very much voice of SAMI yusuf, when i am hear his naats, i feel personally that i am too closed of MAKKAH & MADINA so his naats leave a wonderful image on mind which i never forget in every part of life.
      Best wishes for future, May he live long

    of course like your web site however you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding
    it very troublesome to inform the truth however I’ll definitely come again again.
