English Translation of the ten lines/couplets/verses


1st Verse:- 

I thank you Oh Allah, and (I) invoke blessings on the prophet. Now, draw nearer, oh questioner on the Imam al-Mahdi.


2nd Verse:- 

A man will emerge from the lands of the west, and that man and his hordes of followers will help the Mahdi on the upliftment of the religion, and eradication of disbelief, innovation and illegality.


3rd Verse:- 

That man will emerge/appear from the (far) west (Senegal is to the west of Nigeria)and his followers will be the nation/people of Mahdi.


4th Verse:- 

When this man appears, you all and your leaders will not follow anyone better than him by following his orders due to the decadence of issues, and corruption of affairs except for the Mahdi. That is, issues will not be resolved nor solutions proffered except by him, due to the deterioration of affairs and sectionalisation of all.


5th Verse:- 

In the year of manifestation of his exaltation of the faith (MIN SHARAFIN), coinciding with the year 1370 in the numerical tables of Abjad, and that is counting from the hijrah of the Prophet (SAW), and that is indicative of the reference from the earlier lines followed by these lines wherein he said Sharafu Kanku, and that means he is the great helper/assistant, with his followers, to the Imam al-Mahdi. (1370 also corresponds to the year Shaykh Ibrahim made his famous visit to Nigeria)


6th Verse:- 

The man has a wide radiant forehead, with a sign on his face. Understand this, Oh Questioner! on the Mahdi’s attributes.


7th Verse:- 

He is Black-skinned, full bearded and wide-chested with piercing dark eyes like those of a cat.


8th Verse:- 

That man will frequently visit the best of men (Muhammad) and his parents’ name will be like of Imam Mahdi (Shaykh Ibrahim's father is Abdullah)


9th Verse:- 

Sharafuddeen is his kunya (alias)/nickname truly, for that man is the personification/embodiment of virtues, and great-tidings, for he will bring grace & honour to the deen (religion) of Islam after it will be dirtied and downgraded, as if he is the Imam Mahdi himself. Ibrahim is his name, and he is the greatest of all helpers to the Imam al-Mahdi.


10th Verse:- 

These ten verses ‘meaning these ten lines/couplets I composed’ because of the questioner just like the first ten lines before it; i.e. just like the first ten line for line, equally word for word, letter for letter except for the ranging/rhyming in which in which both poems 

differ, and the meanings of these ten lines are just like that of the ten before them. 



End-Note from Author;

My father Thambo Kulwa ibn Ahmad ibn Mujail got the meanings from Shaykh Uthman directly and I (Babayaro Sambo) got it from my father directly and Allah knows best. Peace.


THE END


Completed to the thanksgiving of GOD, and the goodness of His help. May His peace and blessings be upon the prophet (SAW).
