In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful and Compassionate

All praise to Allah, Lord of the Worlds. And salutations and greetings upon our Master Muhammad and upon his family and companions.

Oh my mother Khadijah
In his face, you saw light and your goodness drew to his goodness.
Those who left the sanctuary of your womb were cloaked in nobility
And at your feet, they found their jannah.

Upon mountains so high your feet toiled, refusing to let your beloved feel hungry.
And when revelation bore down heavily upon his heart
In your gentle arms, he found comfort.

Your words like the arrows of Ghazzali
Became rooted forever in his heart.
Upon your demise, he wept as he lowered you into your place of rest.
Your absence he felt as your necklace lay bathed in tears so warm,
Evoking memories so precious.

Through you, Allah granted him peace
And upon you, He wished His peace.
Through your sacrifice the weak became mighty
And at your grave the mighty army stood still.

Oh my Mother Khadijajh
In your hands, Allah placed the world
You gifted it to your beloved
And at your feet He placed Jannah.
