Translation of Jaliyat al-Kadr

On the 17th of Ramadan, a poem compiled by Habib ‘Abdullah bin Mustafa al-‘Aydarus (may Allah have mercy on him), Jaliyat al-Kadr, is traditionally recited in Dar al-Mustafa. It is a poem in which the names of all the Companions that attended the Battle of Badr (may Allah be well-pleased with them) are mentioned. 

The Jaliyat is known as a tawassul, or a type of supplication where the person offering the prayer beseeches Allah Most High by means of something or someone beloved to the Lord. In the case of this prayer, the poet calls upon his Lord to remove his difficulties by mentioning the Prophet, upon him be peace, and his closest and most beloved Companions who fought at the great battle of Badr.
This great poem has been translated by Sh. Abdul Aziz Ahmed (may Allah preserve him and increase him), and can be downloaded here.
