Darud Taj – Invocation of Blessings Upon the Prophet (pbuh)

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

The following is the translation of a famous invocation of blessings upon the Prophet entitled Darud Taj or “Invocation of the Crown” which is especially well known in the Indian subcontinent.

O Allah, send blessings and Peace upon our Master and Patron Muhammad
The Owner of the Crown and the Ascent and the Buraq and the Standard,
The Repeller of Affliction and Disease and Drought and Illness and Pain.
His name is written on high, served and engraved in the Tablet and the Pen,
The Leader of All, Arabs and non-Arabs,
Whose body is sanctified, fragrant, and pure,
The Sun of Brightness, the Full Moon in Darkness, The Cave of Refuge for Mortals, the Lamp That Dispels the Night
The Foremost One in the Highest Fields, the Light of Guidance,
The Best-Natured One, The Intercessor of Nations, The Owner of Munificence and Generosity
Allah is his Protector, Gabriel is his servant. The Buraq is his mount ,
The Ascent is his voyage. The Lote-Tree of the Furthermost Boundary is his station,
Two Bow-Lengths or Nearer is his desire,
His desire is his goal, and he has found his goal,
The Master of the Messengers, the Seal of the Prophets,
The intercessor of sinners, the friend of the strangers,
The Mercy for the Worlds,
The rest of those who burn with love, the goal of those who yearn,
The sun of knowers, the lamp of travellers, The light of Those Brought Near,
The friend of the poor and destitute,
The master of Humans and Jinn,
The Prophet of the Two Sanctuaries,
The Imam of the Two Qiblas,
Our Means in the Two Abodes,
The Owner of Qaba Qawsayn,
The Beloved of the Lord of the Two Easts and the Two Wests,
The grandfather of al-Hasan and al-Husayn,
Our patron and the patron of Humans and Jinn:
Abu al-Qasim MUHAMMAD Son of `Abd Allah,
A light from the light of Allah.
O you who yearn for the light of his beauty,
Send blessings and utmost greetings of peace
Upon him and upon his Family.

Ameen.

    i would love to read a commentary on this. but yes beautiful mashAllah.

    i think in parts it is similar to the burda, like “The leader of all, arabs and non-arabs”
