This poem was first published by the Promised Messiah (as), in his book A'ina Kamalat-e-Islam in 1893.
Hazrat Pir Sirajul Haque (r.a.) narrates that: "When the Promised Messiah (a.s.) completed writing this poem, his face lit up with joy and he said: Allah has told me that this poem has found acceptance by Allah. He will bestow his love and the love of the Prophet (s.a.w.) and will grant his nearness to anyone who commits this poem to memory and recites it constantly."
Hazrat Dr. Khalifa Rashiduddin (r.a.) narrates that: "The Promised Messiah (a.s.) used to advise regarding the Qaseedah that whosoever memorized this Qaseedah, his memory would be blessed (enhanced) by Allah."
Translation of first 5 verses is as follows:
- O (you who are) the Fountain of Allah's munificence, and perfect understanding of Allah, People rush towards you, thirstily.
- (you who are) the Ocean of God's grace --- Who is the Bestower of Favours, exceedingly Beneficent, Hordes of (thirsty) people hurry towards you holding their bowls (in hand).
- O (you who are) the Sun of the (spiritual) Kingdom of Beauty and Grace! You have (spiritually) illuminated (the inhabitants of) the deserts as well as the cities
- A (group of) people (was fortunate that they) saw you, while others simply heard about you: The (enchantingly beautiful) Full Moon which has cast a spell over me.
