  wa 'alaikumus-salaam warahmatullahi wabarakaatuh,

There's a translation as well as a recitation of the Arabic version of the Poem by our brother Moosaa Richardson on troid:

The Haa'iyyah Poem of Ibn Abee Daawood (d.316)

(1) Hold tightly to the rope of Allaah and the guidance,
And do not be an innovator, so that you might be successful.

(2) And practice your religion based on the Book of Allaah and the Sunan which
have come from the Messenger of Allaah so you will be saved and earn reward.

(3) And say: Not a created thing is the Speech of our great King,
     Such was the religious position of the pious ones (before us) who spoke well.

(4) And do not be a person who takes no position on the Quran,
     As did the followers of Jahm, and they had been too lax (to take the right position).

(5) And do not say that the Quran is created, meaning: its recitation,
     Since the Speech of Allaah, through its recitation, is made clear.

(6) And say: Allaah will make himself visible to all the creation, openly,
     Just as the full moon is not hard to see, and your Lord (will be seen) more clearly.

(7) And He was not born, nor has He fathered anyone,
     Nor is there anything similar to Him, exalted be the Glorified One.

(8) A Jahmee rejects this, however, we have
     As a testimony to the truth of what we say - a hadeeth that clarifies it.

(9) Jareer narrated it, from the words of Muhammad,
     So say what he said about that, and you will be successful.

(10) And perhaps a Jahmee might deny His Right Hand as well,
     While both of His Hands are giving out all kinds of bounties.

(11) And say: The Ever-Compelling descends each night,
     Without asking for exact details, magnificent is the One God and most worthy of praise.

(12) Down to the lowest heaven, granting bounties from His Grace,
     As the gates of the heavens are opened and spread widely.

(13) He says: Is there anyone seeking forgiveness who would like to meet a Forgiver?
     Or anyone seeking bounties of goodness and provisions, so he could be given (what he requests)?

(14) A group have reported this whose reports are not to be rejected,
     But sadly some have went wrong and did not believe them, marring themselves.

(15) And say: Indeed the best of the people after Muhammad
     Were his two deputies of old, and then 'Uthmaan, according to the most correct position.

(16) And the fourth of them was the best of creation after them,
     'Alee, the companion of goodness, through goodness he was successful.

(17) Those are the people, those who we have no doubt about,
     Upon the great camels of Firdows, shining brightly and roaming about.

(18) Sa'eed, Sa'd, Ibn 'Awf, Talhah,
     'Aamir of Fihr, and Zubayr the praiseworthy.
(19) And speak with the best terms about the Companions, all of them,
     And do not be one who speaks ill of them, pointing out their faults and criticizing,

(20) Since the clear Revelation has spoke of their excellence,
    And in (Soorah) al-Fat-h are verses about the Companions, praising them.

(21) And regarding the pre-ordained Qadr, be convinced, since it is
     The pillar that combines many affairs of the Religion, and the Religion encompasses much.

(22) And do not reject, out of ignorance, (belief in) Nakeer and Munkar,
     Or the Pool or the Scales, surely you are being advised sincerely.

(23) And say: Allaah, the Great, will remove, from of His Grace,
     Out of the Fire, people, burned severely, who will then be tossed

(24) Into the river in Firdows, wherein they will regain life by its water,
     Like a seed taken by a flood that comes and wipes things away with its abundant water.

(25) And surely, the Messenger of Allaah will intercede,
     And speak about the punishment of the grave, that it is the truth, made clear.

(26) And do not make takfeer of those who pray, even if they commit sins,
     Since all of them commits sins, while the Owner of the Throne forgives graciously.

(27) And do not hold a belief like that of the Khawaarij, for it is
     A position held by only those who desire it, and it is destructive and disgraceful.

(28) And do not be a Murji', one who plays games with his religion,
     Surely, the Murji' is joking about the religion (ie. not taking it seriously).

(29) And say: Eemaan (faith) consists of statements, intentions,
     And Actions, according to the explicit statement of the Prophet.

(30) And it decreases sometimes, due to disobedience, and sometimes
     Because of obedience it grows, and on the Scale it will outweigh (other things).

(31) And keep yourself from the opinions of people and their stances,
     Since the stance of the Messenger of Allaah is more befitting and easier on one's chest.

(32) And do not be from those who play games with their religion,
     Attacking the people of hadeeth and reviling them.

(33) If you keep this belief all your life, O holder of this (poem),
     You will be upon goodness, day and night.

  wa iyyaak akhee. I hope you noticed the Arabic version in PDF in brother Jameel Flinch's attachment above.

I also found another recitation of the Haa'iyyah Poem on [See the 3rd in the list on post #21]. There are some other Poems & Mutoon (Texts) [like the 4th in same post #21:  لامية شيخ الإسلام ابن تيمية] listed there but some of the links don't work.

  Yet another recitation of the Haa'iyyah Poem (on the 'Aqeedah of ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa'ah) written by the Imaam ibn Abee Dawood رحمه الله - a clear & beautiful recitation (may Allah reward the writer of the poem and the reciter). It seems to have been extracted from a recording of an Explanation by one of the Scholars.

From the Imaam Aajurry site:     قراءة ( لمنظومة ابن أبي داود الحائية) صوتي (mp3)

As for the text, also from the Imaam Aajurry site: [url=] متن حائية ابن أبي داود [/url] [This link has another recitation but the volume seems to be quite low.]

تمسك بحبلِ الله وأتبعِ الهُدى = ولا تكُ بدعيا لعلك تُفلحُ
ودنْ بكتابِ الله والسننِ التي = أتت عنْ رسول الله تنجو وتربحُ
وقل غيرُ مخلوقٍ كلام مليكنا = بذلك دان الـأتقياء , وأفصحوا
ولا تكُ في القرآن بالوقف قائلاً = كما قال أتْباعٌ لجمٍ وأسححُوا
ولا تقل القرآن حلْقٌ قرأْتُهُ = فإن كلام اللهِ باللفظ يُوضحُ
وقل يتجلى الله للخلقِ جهرةً = كما البدر لا يخفى وربك أوضحُ
وليس بمولدٍ وليس بوالدٍ = وليس له شِبْهٌ تعالى المُسبحُ
وقد يُنكِر الجهمي هذا عندنا = بمصداقِ ما قلنا حديثٌ مصرحُ
رواه جريرٌ عم مقالِ مُحمدٍ = فقلُ مِثل ما قد قال ذاك تنْجحُ
وقد ينكرُ الجهمي أيضاً يمينهُ = وكِلتا يديه بالفواضلِ تنْفحُ
وقل ينزلُ الجبارُ في كلِّ ليلةٍ = بر كيفَ جلَّ الواحدُ المُتمَدحُ
إلى طبقِ الدنيا يمُنُّ بفضلهِ = فتفرجُ أبواب السماءِ وتُفتحُ
يقولُ أَلا مُستغفرٌ يَلقَ غافراً = ومُستمنحٌ خيراً ورِزْقاً فُمنحُ
روى ذاك قومٌ لا يردُّ حديثُهم = ألا خابَ قومٌ كذبوهم وقُبِّحوا
وقل: إنَّ خير النَّاسِ بعد محمَّدٍ = وزيراهُ قدَماً ثم عثمانُ الارجَحُ
ورابعهُمْ خيرُ البريَّة بعدهُم = عليٌّ حليفُ الخيرِ بالخيرِ مُنْجِحُ
ورابعهُمْ خيرُ البريَّة بعدهُم = عليٌّ حليفُ الخيرِ بالخيرِ مُنْجِحُ
وإنَّهم للرَّهطُ لا ريبَ فيهمُ = على نُجبِ الفردوسِ بالنُّور تَسرحُ
سعيدٌ وسعدٌ وابن عوفٍ وطلحةُ = وعامرُ فهرٍ والزبيرُ الممدَّح
وقل خيرض قولٍ في الصحابة كلِّهم = ولا تك طعَّاناً تعيبُ وتجرحُ
فقد نطقَ الوحيُ المبينث بفضلِهم = وفي الفتح آيٌ للصَّحابةِ تمدحُ
وبالقدرِ المقدورِ أيقِن فإنَّه = دعامةُ عقدِ الدِّين ، والدِّينُ أفيحُ
ولا تُنكِرَنْ جهلاً نكيراً ومُنكراً = ولا الحوْضَ والِميزانَ انك تُنصحُ
وقُلْ يُخرجُ اللهُ الْعظيمُ بِفَضلِهِ = مِنَ النارِ أجْساداً مِنَ الفَحْمِ تُطرحُ

عَلى النهرِ في الفِرْدوسِ تَحْيَا بِمَائِهِ = كَحِبِّ حَمِيلِ السَّيْلِ إذْ جَاءَ يَطْفَحُ
وإن رَسُولَ اللهِ للخَلْقِ شَافِعٌ = وقُلْ في عَذابِ القَبْرِ حَقّ موَُضحُ
ولاَ تُكْفِرنْ أَهلَ الصلاةِ وإِنْ عَصَوْا = فَكُلهُمُ يَعْصِي وذُو العَرشِ يَصفَحُ
ولَا تَعتقِدْ رأيَ الْخَوَارجِ إِنهُ = مقَالٌ لَمنْ يَهواهُ يُردي ويَفْضَحُ
ولا تكُ مُرْجيًّا لَعُوبا بدينهِ = ألاَ إِنمَا المُرْجِي بِالدينِ يَمْزحُ
وقلْ : إنمَا الإِيمانُ : قولٌ ونِيةٌ = وفعلٌ عَلَى قولِ النبِي مُصَرحُ
ويَنْقُصُ طوراً بالمَعَاصِي وتَارةً = بِطَاعَتِهِ يَمْنَي وفي الوَزْنِ يَرْجَحُ
ودعْ عَنْكَ آراءَ الرجالِ وقَوْلَهُمْ = فقولُ رسولِ اللهِ أزكَى وأَشْرحُ
ولا تَكُ مِن قوْمٍ تلهوْا بدينِهِمْ = فَتَطْعَنَ في أهلِ الحَديثِ وتقدحُ
إِذَا مَا اعْتقدْت الدهْرَ يا صَاحِ هذهِ = فأَنْت عَلَى خَيْرٍ تبيتُ وتُصْبِحُ
