I have Arabized what my brother, my Shaykh composed in non Arabic Both of us together taking as intermediary Abd’l-Qaadir, The letters of my poem following exactly the pattern of his letters Except in a few places, step by step I hope through my partnership with him for acceptance Because I am a disciple of the disciple of Abd’l-Qaadir, The blessings of Ahmad in the lands of Allah Has become universal and abundant by Abd’l-Qaadir.”
