Hadhrat Shaykh Dhu ‘l-Fiqar Ahmad Naqshbandi, may Allah protect him, writes: 

”Upon leaving Madinah Munawwarah, [Hadhrat Maulana Qasim Nanautwi] gazed at the Green Dome (of al-Masjid al-Nabawi sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) one final time and recited the following couplets,  

ہزاروں بار تجھ  پر اے مدینہ ميں فدا ہوتا

جو بس چلتا تو مر کر بھی نہ میں تجھ سے جدا ہوتا

Trans: Thousands of times. O Madinah, would I be sacrificed for you

If it was possible, then I would not part from you through death
