Verse in praise of Hz. Sheikh Abdul Qadir Al Jillani (also known as Ghous Pak, Ghousel Azam,
and Piran-i-Pir)


The lamp of the assembly of Plurality and the candle of Unity is Ghous-ul-Azam,
The giver of lustre to the world and the light of guidance in multiplicity is Ghous-ul-Azam,
For this very reason he indeed is beloved of God Almighty,
As an epitome of Mohammed Mustafa's manners, elegant and lofty is Ghous-ul-Azam.
Why the lovers, to have a glimpse of him may not desire?
Gives peace to the disturbed heart and solace does inspire, Ghous-ul-Azam.
Always the crown of sainthood the saints from his door get,
The distributor of the wealth of magnificence and in divine Kindness set is Ghous-ul-Azam.
Those who have come under his protection are the recipients of divine Grace,
The shade of the Benignity of God does embrace Ghous-ul-Azam.
The transgressors rely upon him in this world and in the world next,
Helper of the helpless and supporter of the sect is Ghous-ul-Azam.
O, Sharib! a beloved of of Ali, Shabbir and Shabbar he tends to be.
As a complete image of the grandeur of spiritual leadership, see Ghous-ul-Azam.

Verse in praise of Khawaja Muinuddin Hassan Chishti


The Qibla of lovers, Muinuddin,
The Kaaba of the enlightened, Muinuddin,
For the placid peace of the soul, O Khadim,
Wholeheartedly recall and recite, Muinuddin.

Khawaja Muinuddin Hasan

The image of divine beauty, Khawaja Muinuddin Hasan,
The cause of dignity and the development of society, Khawaja Muinuddin Hasan
Thy colour is that of Ahmed and thy smell the smell of Hyder,
O Ye! the spring of a hundred gardens in full bloom ever, Khawaja Muinuddin Hasan
The beloved of Ali-i-Murtaza, the soul of the martyr of Karbala, immortal and alive,
The light of the eyes of the Holy Five, Khawaja Muinuddin Hasan
Thy face the face of Murtaza, thy habit that of Mustafa in all sublimity,
Thy light is the light of God Almighty, Khawaja Muinuddin Hasan
Now hast taken refuge at thy door, for thy one longing, lingering look of grace, at thy place
Sharib, the indigent and homeless, seeking thy grace, Khawaja Muinuddin Hasan.

Verse in praise of Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi


Of surpassing grandeur, Mevlana!
Of towering solemnity and grace, Mevlana!
A fortress of light in a sea of darkness, Mevlana!
The substance of divinity, Mevlana!
Lover and Beloved of Shams-i-Tabriz, Mevlana!
The saviour of society and the one who lends grace and beauty to the people, Mevlana!
The author of tranquility in troubled times, Mevlana!
The invisible axis of the universal dance, Mevlana!
All hail Mevlana! All hail Mevlana! All hail Mevlana!
Goal of the seekers, finder of the lost,
Key to the treasury of divine blessings,
Uniter of hearts, keeper of the Faith,
Solver of problems, Light of the lights,
Beloved of lovers and lover of the Beloved,
The eternal ocean of divine Love,
O Jamil, lose thy self and find only him, Mevlana!
