Tala al Badru Alayna

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

It's Friday today - the most blessed day of the Muslim week. The day where we should recite as much Durood Shareef upon our Prophet Muhammad (saw) as we can.

I was listening to this nasheed after such a long time and thought I'd share some of the lyrics with you. The nasheed is about Tala al Badru Alayna.

Best caller to Gods way
The word to be obeyed
The bright moon in the valley of darkness

His eyes slowly rising 
Sunrise warms the horizon
Sand dunes form in the distance
He's up and out in an instant

The crowd, they all were waiting
Watching and anticipating
A man appears from a far
Could it be the one sent by Allah?

He shouts, "Here comes the Prophet
His face is a light that drives out the darkness
Words are alive, his message is living
Joy everywhere, our voices are singing"

He steps and reaches to touch
This man who suffered so much
His own troubles could not compare
To the Prophet scorned everywhere

He was shunned away by his own kin
Ridiculed and stoned by the townsmen
His blood was shed for the truth
But he never was vengeful or rude

Then the Prophet turns, and he smiles
Radiance that spreads out for miles
Embraces his hand with kindness and care
His heart sings out for all those to hear

Wakes up, alarm clock is ringing
Moonlight, the sun hasn't risen
Faint sounds of cars on the street
But inside his heart, he feels peace

He starts recalling his dream
The Prophet's face he had seen
He remembers then the tradition
In a dream, it truly will be him

Allah, oh what a feeling
So many years he followed his teachings
And this is the greatest time in his life
He prays to Allah and sings through the night

Here is the full nasheed:
