On How to Benefit from the Dowra

Answered by Sayyidi Habib Umar bin Hafiz (may Allah protect him and benefit us by him)

We are planning to attend the Dowra in Tarim this year. How can we prepare to attain the biggest of openings?

Attend the Dowra with truthfulness, sincerity, humility and veneration. Broaden your perspective on everything you experience, have a present heart, maintain a good opinion and be keen to benefit. May Allah grant us all success.


With what intentions should we come to Tarim?

You should intend following and emulating the Prophet ﷺ, being a cause of joy to him, seeking Allah’s greatest pleasure and being in the company of His Beloved in the Abode of Ennoblement. You should broaden your intentions and perspectives as much as possible and intend rectifying your hearts and rectifying the Ummah.
