Some have said that of these charming three One was Asiya of moonlike face, One was Lady Mary without doubt, And the third a angelic beautiful. Then these moonfaced three drew gently near And they greeted me with kindness here; Then they sat around me, and they gave The good tidings of Muhammad’s birth; Said to me: “A son like this your son Has not come since God has made this world, And the Mighty One did never grant Such a lovely son as will be yours.
You have found great happiness, O dear for from you that virtuous one is born! He that comes is King of Knowledge high, Is the mine of gnosis and tawhid [monotheism].
For the love of him the sky revolves, Men and jinn are longing for his face. This night is the night that he, so pure Will suffuse the worlds with radiant light! This night, earth becomes a Paradise, This night God shows mercy to the world. This night those with heart are filled with joy, This night gives the lovers a new life. Mercy for the worlds is Mustafa, Sinners’ intercessors: Mustafa!’”
