Al-Muallim


To mark the occasion of our beloved Prophet S.A.W's birth date: 12th Rabiul Awwal, I depict the lyrics of 'Al-Muallim'. Al-Muallim is the title of my all-time favourite nasheed which is composed, arranged and sang by Sami Yusuf. Al-Muallim means teacher in Arabic, which refers to our Prophet S.A.W. Check out the lyrics:


Al-Mu'allim

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)

p/s: I'm going back to kuantan this coming wednesday, been missing my family so much, especially the 2 'budak bulat's: zikry & zafry. Till then, happy maulidur rasul!
