[English:]

God’s blessings be upon Taha,
Best of creation and the sweetest
Best of God’s creation, he’s the guide
The light of existence shines through him
He encompassed all mankind with his guidance
Purest of creation and the most pleasing
The first light of God
He was taught before all other creation
The veiled light of the full moon
Guiding creation to its Lord
Beyond the Sidra he walked
And saw The Truth and His Lights
The Spirit (Jibra’il) stopped and did not continue
saying go on alone Taha
May God be pleased with his intimates
from his noble family
And his companions, the people of justice
Who gained eternity and its dwelling
Of fine complexion
His eyes, dark and wide
Of beautiful face
The guide, with whom God is satisfied
His face is like the moon
His form is resplendent
His character is mighty
Taha, the chosen one
His heart is kind,
His promises are kept
His generosity is vast
The effacer (of sins), the chosen one
The blessings of my Lord
And His peace
Upon Muhammad
The most beautiful of names
