Subh Taibā Mein Huī Bat’tā Hai Bāra Nūr Ka + English Translation

Subh Taibā Mein Huī Bat’tā Hai Bāra Nūr Ka 
Sadqa Laine Nūr Ka Aayā Hai Tārā Nūr Ka 
Dawn broke in Madina and blessings of Nūr dispersed 
Arrived a star of Nūr; to gain blessings from the Nūr
Subh (dawn) meaning at the time of the birth of the Beloved Prophet - There is a difference of opinion regarding the date of birth of the Prophet, however the majority of scholars have agreed that it is the 12th Rabi al-Awwal [Madarijun-Nabuwwah]
When the Messenger returned from Tabuk in Madina, his uncle Abbas sought permission to recite some lines of poetry in his praise. The Prophet replied saying: “Recite, may your mouth remain fresh”.
Thereafter Sayyiduna Abbas began to recite his poetry, inside the Masjid, before the Beloved Messenger and gathering of companions in which he mentioned the transition of our Prophet Muhammad (Allah give him peace and blessings) in the loins of the previous Prophets and how he blessed them all, thereafter he said:
“...The day you [the Prophet] were born the sun rose over the earth and the horizon was illumined with your Noor; So we – in that radiance and that light and paths of guidance – can pierce through.” [Khasais al-Kubra, Vol. 1, Page 97, Ibn Kathir’s Mawlad al-Mustafa, Page 29-30] 
Bāge Taibā Mein Suhāna Phool Phoola Nūr ka
Mast Bū Hai Bul Bule Phartī Hai Kalimā Nūr ka 
In the garden of Madina, beautiful flowers blossomed of Nūr;
With an astounding fragrance, the birds too are reciting praises of Nūr 
Mein Gadā Tu Bādshā Barde Payālā Nūr ka
Nūr Din Dūnā Tairā Daidāl Sadqa Nūr ka 
I am a beggar, you a king; fill the bowl of Nūr
Your Nūr is multiplying every day; give us blessings from your Nūr 
Hazrat Jabir Bin Abdullah Ansari Narrates:
The Prophet said, ''Name yourselves after me (by my name) but do not call (yourselves) by my Kuniyah, for I am Al-Qasim (the distributor), and I distribute among you Allah's blessings.'' This narration has also come on the authority of Anas [Sahi Bukhari, Vol 8, Hadith No. 216]
Taire Āgay Khāk Par Jhukta Hai Mātā Nūr Ka
Nūr Ne Pāyā Tere Sajday Se Sīmā Nūr Ka
Before you, on the gound; Nūr bows its head
It gained countenance of Nūr by prostrating to you 
Student of Imam Malik and the teacher of Imam Ahmed Bin Hanbal and Hafizul Hadith Abdul Razzak Abu Bakr Bin Hamman, the teacher of the teachers of Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim, in his Book "Musannaf", has narrated from Hadrat Jabir bin Abdullah Ansari and his son (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhum), that he asked the Messenger of Allah (Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him):
O Prophet of Allah! My parents be sacrificed upon you, what did the Almighty Allah first create?" The Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) replied: "Allah first created my Noor (Light) of His Noor. This Noor travelled about according to the Will of Allah. At that time, there was no Heaven, Hell, Lawh (Divine Tablet), Pen, Earth, Skies, Sun, Moon, Jinn or Human Beings. When He decided to create, He divided that Noor into four parts. From one part He created the Pen, from the second, the Lawh and from the third, he made the Arsh (Throne). He divided the fourth part into a further four parts. From one, He created those Angels who carry the Arsh, from the second, the Kursi (Divine Chair) and from the third, He created the Angels. He again divided the remaining parts into a further four parts. From one, He created the skies. The second was used in creating the planets. From the third, Heaven and Earth were created. Once again, He divided the fourth part into a further four parts. From one part He created the power with which the believers see. From the second, He created in the hearts of the Believers the Noor of Marifat. From the third, He created Noor in the tongues of the Believers, so that they can read the Kalima of Tawheed.” [Muwahib al-Ladunniyah,Vol.1, Page 9, Dalaa'il an-Nubuwwah By Imam Baihaqi, Madarij an-Nabuwwat by Skaykh Abdul Haq Muhaddith Dehlvi]  
Tu Hai Sāyā Nūr Ka Har Adhw Tukrā Nūr Ka
Sāyā Ka Sāyā Na Howtā Hai Na Sāyā Nūr Ka
You are a shadow of Nūr, every part and limb made of Nūr;
There is no shadow of a shadow, nor a shadow of Nūr 
Hakim Tirmidhi narrates from Zakwaan: “The Prophet’s shadow couldn’t be seen; nor in sunlight nor in moonlight” [Al Khasais Al Kubra] 
Imam Qadi Iyad states in Shifa Shareef: “It is amongst the signs of Prophethood that The Prophet didn’t possess a shadow, because he was made from Noor” [Shifa Shareef] 
Ala Hazrat has written an entire Risalah ‘Nafyul Fay Amman Istanara Bi Noorihi Kulla Shay’ - Discussing that the Prophet did not possess a shadow. 
Tairī Nasle Pāk Mein Hai Bachā Bachā Nūr Ka
Tu Hai Aine Nūr Taira Sab Gharānā Nūr Ka
In your pure progeny every child is Nūr;
You are entirely Nūr, Your entire household is Nūr 
The Prophet Muhammad (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) has stated, "The very first thing which Almighty Allah created was my Noor." [Tafseer Roohul Bayaan, Page 548, Vol. 1, Madarij an-Nabuwwah, Page 6, Vol. 2, Bayaan al-Miladun Nabi li Ibn Jauzi, Page 24]
Ala Hazrat has also written a Risalah Salatus-Safa Fi Nooril Mustafa establishing that the Prophet is entirely Noor.
Wad’e Wād’i Mein Tairī Sūrat Hai Ma’na Nūr Ka
YuN Majāzan Chāhe Jisko Keh De Kalimā Nūr Ka
The word ‘Nūr’ was originally made to define you
In the unreal sense we label others as ‘Nūr’
Chānd Jukh Jātā Jidar Unglī Utāte Mahd Mai
Kyā Hi Chlatāta Ishāro Par Kilaunā Nūr Ka
In the cradle; the moon would move accordingly as you lifted your finger
That is how the toys of Nūr would move upon your gesture 
Sayyiduna Abbas bin Abdul Muttalib narrates that he said to the Prophet: “O RasoolAllah! I witnessed a Sign that proved your Prophet-hood and encouraged me to accept your Religion. When you were a child, I saw that you used to play with the Moon from your cradle. Wherever you used to point with your finger, the Moon used to move accordingly.” The Prophet said: “I used to talk with it and it never used to let me Cry” [Imam Ibn Asakir in Tarikh Madinat al-Dimishq, Vol. 4, Page 360, Imam Jalaluddin Suyuti Shafai’ in Al Khasais al Kubra, Vol. 1, Page 53.]
‘Kāf’ Ghaisū ‘Hā’ Dahan ‘Yā’ Abrū Ānke ‘Ain’ ‘Sād’
‘KāfHāYāAinSād’ Unkā Hai Chehrā Nūr Ka
‘Kāf’ for Zulf, ‘Hā’ for Mouth, ‘Yā’ for eyebrows, Ain’ ‘Sād’ for eyes;
‘KāfHāYāAinSād’ represents his face full of Nūr
Aey Razā Ye Ahmade Nūrī Ka Faize Nūr Hai
Hogayi Mairī Gazal Bharkar Qasīdā Nūr Ka
O Razā! This is the blessing of Ahmad Nūrī;
I have completed this poem and it has become an ode of Nūr
While this stanza was being recited Imam Ahmad Raza crawled on his knees towards Sayyid Abul Husain Ahmed Nūrī and placed his head in his lap and began to cry.
