    Poetry in praise of The Green Dome | Mawlid Gift 2013:

    The green dome, the mosque and the city are nothing to me without you,​


    When the full moon arrived, the caller was praised
    The earth, the people, the city, their ranks were all raised
    From a place full of fever from the chilling cold nights
    To the safe asylum of faith and a citadel of lights
    Your garden is in fact a piece of Paradise, so true
    Where lovers flock in this life to gain proximity to you
    The green dome, the mosque and the city are nothing to me without you,​


    Golden windows, the station where the peace is distributed
    Granting forgiveness for the nation and loud voices are muted
    The two companions there, residing in the best of homes
    Under the shelter of what they say is the most exquisite of domes
    But they have no need to ponder upon the colours or design
    Because they are being sustained next to Allah’s most beautiful sign
    The green dome, the mosque and the city are nothing to me without you,​


    The pulpit, the niche, the bench and the numerous pillars too
    What worth would they have without being close to you?
    Please, let them forgive me if they think I’ve said too much
    But I can’t describe the feelings, the vision, never mind the touch
    The palm trunk, the cemetery, the wives and the family too
    Made great with Allah by virtue of who?
    The green dome, the mosque and the city are nothing to me without you,​


    The Prophet, the Messenger, the Beloved, Muhammad the guide
    The Master of the sons of Adam, a fact without pride
    The one who Allah selected, the light to whom we adhere
    I ask Allah to grant us love from you and of you, sincere
    Allah sends peace and blessings upon you and His angels do too
    I thank Allah for creating you and I ask to be with you
    The green dome, the mosque and the city mean so much to me because of you,​
