      فَبَلِّغْ سَلَامِي لِلْحَبِيبِ مُحَمَّدٍ

      Convey my greetings to the Beloved Muhammad.
      فِي رَوْضَتِهِ الْحُسْنَىٰ مُنَايَ وَبُغْيَتِي
      وَفِيهَا شِفَا قَلْبِي وَرُوحِي وَرَاحَتِي

      Therein lies the remedy for my heart and soul, and therein my comfort.

      فَتِمْثَالُهَآ لَدَىَّ أَحْسَنُ صُورَةٍ
      Fa-in baʿudat ʿannī wa ʿazza mazāruhā
      Fa-timthāluhā ladayya aḥsanu ṣuratin
      8. For although it is far from me and difficult to visit,

      فَيَسْلُو بِهَا لُبِّي وَسِرِّي وَمُهْجَتِي

      أُقَبِّلُهَا شَوْقًا لِإِشْفَاءِ عِلَّتِي
      Fa-hā anā yā Qutba l-ʿAwālimi kullihā

      صَلَاةً بِهَا تَمْحُو عَنَّا كُلَّ زَلَّةٍ
