Only for You: Munajat [Mawlana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar]

04May07

In The Name of Allah, The Merciful, The Compassionate

A dear friend of mine brought be some books from his visit to Dar ul-Uloom Karachi, as well as from the Khanqah of Mawlana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar [Damat Barakatuhum]. At the end of one of the books entitled Ta’aluq m’aAllah by the aforementioned author, there was a poem entitled Munajat that grabbed my attention. It’s a short poem of only two couplets, but has in it the immmense wisdom and beauty that is embodied by the author. Al-Hamdulillah I decided to translate it and after some editing, I have decided to post it on Ekhlas.

Only for You: a translation of Munajat by Mawlana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar

Translated by Bilal Malik

And give me such loftiness of knowledge of You
That every atom of the Universe gives a sign of You
Give me Your address, give me a sign of You, such that
Wherever I go my heart sacrifices its life only for You

Aameen!

    “Aur apni marifat ki mujhe aisi shaan de
    Har zarra kainat ka tera nishan de
    Apna pata de mujh ko youn apna nishan de
    Jaoun jahan bhi dil mera buss tujh pe jaan de
