اَهْلِ التُّقٰى وَالنُّقٰى وَالْحِلْمِ وَالْكَرَمٖ

Oh Allah! Be pleased with Khalifa Abu Baker, Khalifa Umar, Khalifa Usman, Khalifa Ali (May Allah be pleased with himm) who are the Noble Companions of the Holy Prophet (May Allah send peace and blessings upon him).
مَا رَ نَّحَتْ عَذَبَاتِ الْبَانِ رِيْحُ صَبَا
وَ اَطْرَبَ الْعِيْسَ حَادِیْ الْعِيْسِ بِالنَّغَمٖ
MA RANNAHAT AZABAATIL BAANI REEHU SABAH
WA ATRABAL EESA HAADIL EESI BIN NAGHAMI
Your Mercy descends till the morning breeze, shakes the branches of the trees and till the chanting of the riders on their camels.
In Hulya it is related that there are four types of Sabah.
Ibn Khalkaan states that Sabah asked for permission from Allah that if it can take the smell of Sayyidina Yusuf (peace be upon him) to Sayyidina Yakoob (peace be upon him) before the shirt of Sayyidina Yusuf (peace be upon him) could reach him. It was granted Permission. That is why it makes every sad heart, be filled with pleasure.
The second type is Junoob (Southern Wind) It gathers the clouds and the horses are born.
In Tarikh Neeshapuri, Haakim relates that Mowla Ali (karramullahu wajhahu) said: When Allah intended to create the horse He commanded the Southern Wind that I will create a creation from you. So assemble and it assembled. Sayyidina Jibreel (peace be upon him) appeared and took one part from it. Then Allah ordered: This is a part from where, the horses will be created. Then He said: I have made you into a horse and called you Arbi and all four legs, will be of benefits to you.
The third type is Shimaali (Northern Wind).
The Fourth type is Dabur. These both winds are such that through it, the foundations get destroyed and the trees fly away.
These winds are also called Aqeem, Aasif and Sarsar. The Holy Quran speaks about it.
Ees is a camel.
Haadil Ees is a person who rides it.
