Mawlaya Salla Wa Sallim Daiman Abada – Mesut Kurtis (Lyrics in English)
Mawlaya salla wa sallim daiman abada
‘Ala habibika khayril khalqi kullihimi
O my Master, send your salutations and blessings forever
Upon Your Beloved, the best of the whole of creation
Muhammadun sayyidul kawnayni wath thaqalayn
Wal fariqayni min ‘urbin wa min ‘ajami
Muhammad is the master of the two worlds
and of Man and the jinn
Leader also of the Arabs, non-Arabs and their kin
Huwal habibul ladhi turja shafa’atuhu
Likulli hawlin minal ahwali muqtahami
Beloved by Allah is he upon whose pleading we depend
From terrors of the Day of Judgement, which on us descend
Thummar ridha ‘an Abi Bakrin wa ‘an ‘Umarin
Wa ‘an ‘Aliyyin wa ‘an ‘Uthmana dhil karami
Then we ask You to be pleased with Abu Bakr, ‘Umar,
‘Ali and ‘Uthman the generous one
Ya rabbi bil Mustafa balligh maqasidana
Waghfir lana ma mada ya wasi’al karami
O my Lord! with the Elect One make us attain our goals
And forgive us for what has passed,
O Most Munificent One!
