Mawlid Simt ad-Durar, in Arabic and English translation


Habib Ali bin Muhammad al-Habashi composed this mawlid in 1910.


Habib Ali revealed, in praise of this composition, "Within the Mawlid is a great secret. Every time I recite it or hear it, I receive new spiritual openings; it is as though it did not actually emanate from my tongue." He described this Mawlid “as a manifestation of the state of the Prophet” and informed us that it is a gift for future generations.
