Your birth and demise, your father’s sacrifice.
O what were its blessings!
How can I extol your merits?
Abstinence and Taqwa, fasting and Salaat.
Love and recognition (of Allah), Sunnah appearance.
Generosity and benevolence, patience and courage, love and affection, pardoning and forgiving,
These were your habits. How can I exalt your virtues? Divine knowledge, Qur’an and Sunnah, academic subtleties and points, kindness to pupils.
This was your treasure. How can I laud your fortune? Affiliation and love for relatives and near ones, humour and happiness.
This was your hobby. How can I explain the grief of your demise?
The condolences and well wishes of scholars, pious and elders from all corners of the world,
This alone is comfort for my heart.
Allah, Allah! How can I expound his grace?
We are pleased with Allah as (our) Lord, with Islam as (our) religion and with Muhammud (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) as our Prophet and Messenger.
