Image of Blessed Sandals of Prophet Muhammad SAW

Image of Blessed Sandals of Prophet Muhammad SAW

Upon this universe’s head is the sandal of Muhammad SAW
It has ascended, thus all of creation is beneath its shadow
Verily I serve the image of the Sandal of Mustafa SAW
That I shall live under its shadow in both worlds.
At Toor Mountain, Hazrat Musa was addressed to remove his shoes
Whereas Ahmad SAW, wasn’t directed to remove his sandals during Ascension [Miraaj]
A likeness representing a sandal of the noblest of prophetic messengers
Wishing for the place of its dust are the loftiest stars
As co-wives to it, are all the seven heavens altogether
Jealous and envious, as are the crowns of kings
The likeness of the sandal of the Chosen one; it has no parity
For my soul it is solace, for my eye antimony [surma or kajal]
How noble it is! An impression of a revered sandal
For it, every head wishes it was a foot
Since I realised the passage of time wages war on mortals
I made for myself its master’s sandal a stronghold
I fortified myself in its wonderful likeness
In an impenetrable enclosure I attained in its shade, safety
Verily I serve the image of the Sandal of Mustafa.
That I shall live under its shadow in both worlds.
Ibn Masood became fortunate for serving his sandal
And I am fortunate by my serving its image
Upon this universe’s head is the sandal of Muhammad
(Allah bless him and grant him peace)
