(Sultan speaks from his window)
As-salamu `alaykum. Ahlan wa sahlan. Welcome to you! May Almighty give you much more honor. That is really the birthday of that One, he is Sayyidi ‘l-Awwaleen wa ‘l-Akhireen and (birthday celebrations) are only for Hazhrati Muhammad al-Mustafa, not for anyone else. However, they have made it a custom.
Alhamdulillah, it was just the birthday of the Seal of Prophets (s). Just it is going to be suitable for His servants' birthday also. And you are coming here for a celebration, but really I am celebrating the birthday of the Seal of Prophets! Welcome to you. Next year I hope there will be a big ceremony that Mahdi (a) comes, flags of Islam going to be up, and Shaytan's saltanat is going to finish, and Islam's saltanat coming over the whole world!
May Allah forgive you, forgive me. I am weak one. I am happy that I am coming for a celebration for the Seal of Prophet’s birthday yesterday night. May Allah bless you.
People! People! My sons, my daughters, my sisters! O Mankind! You must be happy by celebrating the Seal of Prophet's birthday. Pray for me please, that this heaviness leaves me and that I will be renewed everywhere inshaa-Allah. As-salaamu `alaykum.
(Assembled guests sing "Happy Birthday" outside, under Sultan’s window.)
Birthday is only for one (s) and happiness will be throughout his whole nation, ummat al-Muhammadi! Milad un-Nabi Mubarak `alaykum.... Allahumma thabbitna `ala ‘l-Haqq! (3 times) bi jaahi man anzalta `alayhi, Surat al-Fatihah. Allahumma salli `alaa Sayyidina Muhammadin inna bi ‘l-ummiyy wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallim (2 times). May Allah bless you for the honor of the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)!
(Guests sing, “We love you, we love you, we love you so much, we love you, what else can we say? SHAYKH NAZIM!...”)
