Explanation of the couplet of Raza

As soon as the Holy Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم came in the world, he صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم supplicated for the forgiveness of his Ummah while prostrating [performing Sajdah] in the court of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ. Moreover, he صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم shed tears remembering his sinful Ummah in his apparent life and kept supplicating for their forgiveness. May millions of Durood and Salam be upon such blessed manners!

Sayyidatuna Aaminah رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا narrates that ‘the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم prostrated himself as soon as he صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم came to the world’. (Mawahib-ul-Laduniyyah, vol. 1, pp. 66) [While prostrating, he صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم requested in the court of Almighty]: رَبِّ هَب لِی اُمَّتِی i.e. ‘O Lord! Forgive my Ummah for my sake.’ Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ said: وَھَبتُكَ اُمَّتَكَ بِاَعلٰی ھِمَّتِكَi.e. ‘I have forgiven your Ummah for the sake of your high courage.’ Then angels were addressed:

اِشهَدُوا یَا مَلَائِکَتِی اَنَّ حَبِیبِی لَم یَنسَ اُمَّتَه عِندَ الوِلَادَۃِ فَکَیفَ یَنسَاھَا یَومَ القِیَامَة

 

i.e. ‘O My angels! Be witness that My Beloved did not forget his Ummah at the time of his birth. Then how would he (صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم) forget them on the Day of Judgement?’

(Al-Kalam-ul-Awdah fi Tafseer Alam Nashrah, pp. 104)

Once the Holy Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم raised his hands for supplication during a journey and prostrated for a long time after supplicating for a little while. After repeating this action three times, he صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said to those who were present: ‘I asked my Lord for my Ummah and interceded for them. Upon this, He عَزَّوَجَلَّ blessed me with one third (1/3) of my Ummah. Upon this, I performed prostration of gratitude. Upon asking again, I was blessed with another one third part of my Ummah. I prostrated out of gratitude again. When I asked again for the third time, then Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ granted the last remaining one third part of my Ummah to me as well. To show gratitude and thankfulness for this, I prostrated in the court of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ. (Abu Dawood, vol. 3, pp. 117, Hadees 2775; summarized)

تیری ہیبت تھی کہ ہر بُت تھر تھرا کر گِر گیا              تیری آمد تھی کہ بیتُ اللہ مُجرے کو جھکا

Tayri haybat thi kay her but thar thara ker gir gaya              Tayri aamad thi kay Baytullah mujray ko jhuka

(Hadaiq-e-Bakhshish, pp. 52)

Words and meanings:

مُجرے کو (Mujray ko): For salutation (it should be remembered that in Urdu literature, the word ‘Mujra’ is used to present Salam. Poets often use this word in their poetry).

تھر تھرانا (Thar tharana): To shiver, tremble

ہیبت (Haybat): Awe

Explanation of the couplet of Raza

One of the miracles that took place at the time of the birth of the Holy Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم in the world is that the blessed Ka’bah performed the prostration of gratitude. Moreover, the idols that were around the blessed Ka’bah fell headfirst.

Father of A’la ‘Hadrat, Mufti Naqi ‘Ali Khan رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه states: When the Holy Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم was born, ‘Abdul Muttalib was present in the blessed Ka’bah. He saw that Baytullah prostrated at the Maqaam-e-Ibraheem, and it eloquently said: ‘اَلحَمدُلِله! Lord Almighty has now purified me from the filth of idols.’ Furthermore, an idol whose name was Hubal, placed inside the Ka’bah, and all other idols of the world fell flat on their faces, making it apparent that idol worshiping will vanish by the blessing of the Holy Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم and worship of the Almighty will commence. (Al-Kalam-ul-Awdah fi Tafseer Alam Nashrah, pp. 181)

 

But-khaano mayn woh qahar ka kuhraam para hay

Mil mil kay galay rotay hayn Kuffar-o-sanam aaj

 

Full wrath has been unleashed on idol-temples

Weeping and wailing today are disbelievers and idols

(Zauq-e-Na’at, pp. 81)
