Translation
In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Lo! those who believe and do good works, theirs are the Garden of Paradise
For welcome, wherein they will abide, with no desire to be removed from thence.
This is the grave of al-Shaikh al-Saleh who is poorly in need for God
the child Ahmad bin al-Shaikh al-Saleh Ubaid bin Mohammad
al-Ar'aabi died in the mercy of God on the third day of Rajjab in the year 824 AH,
God bless him with mercy and place him in
Heaven and return on him and all Muslims the blessings of God..
Peace be upon Prophet Mohammad.
