Seeking Allah’s Relief through Prayers Upon the Prophet ﷺ

Sayyidi Habib Umar bin Hafiz (may Allah protect him and benefit us by him) teaches us to seek Allah’s relief through prayers upon the Prophet ﷺ

اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّا نَدْعُوكَ بِأَسْمَائِكَ الحُسْنى وكَلِمَاتِكَ التَّامَّاتِ أَنْ تُصَلَّيَ وتُسَلِّمَ على شَرِيفِ الذَّات، كَريمِ الصِّفات، عَبْدِكَ وَحَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمِّدٍ وعلى آلِهِ وصَحْبِهِ القادَات، وإِخْوَانِهِ مِنْ النَّبِيِّينَ وآلِهِم وصَحْبِهِمْ والتَّابِعِين

وأَنْ تُغِيثَ المُسْلِمين، وتَلْطُفَ بِهِم فِيما تَجْري بِهِ المَقادِير، يا نِعْمَ المَوْلى و نِعْمَ النَّصِير، وأَنْ تُفَرِّجَ كُرُوبَهُم، وتَكْشِفَ السُّوءَ والضُرَّ عَنْهُمْ
يا قادِرُ يا قَوِيُّ يا مَتِينُ يا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمين آمين

Allahumma inna nad`uka bi asmaik’al-husna wa kalimatik’attammati an tusalliya wa tusallima `ala sharif-dhat karim assifat `abdika wa habibika sayyidina Muhammadin wa `ala alihi wa sahbihi’l-qadat wa ikhwanihi min an-nibiyyin wa alihim wa sahbihim w’attabi`in, wa an tughithal-muslimin wa taltufa bihim fīma tajri bihi’l-maqadir, ya ni`ma al-mawla wa ni`ma’nnasir wa an tufarrija kurubahum wa takshifa’ssu’ wa’ durra `anhum ya Qadiru ya Qawwiyu ya Matinu ya Arham ar-Rahimin Amin.

O Allah, we call upon You and ask You by Your beautiful names and Your complete words, to bestow prayers and peace upon the possessor of the most noble essence and the most honourable attributes, Your slave and beloved, our Master Muhammad, and upon his Family and Companions, the best of leaders, and upon his brothers among the Prophets and their Families and Companions and those that follow them. We ask You to aid the Muslims and treat them gently in that which Your decree has in store for them, for You are the best of protectors and best of supporters, and to relieve their tribulations and to remove evil and harm from them, O All-Powerful, O Strong, O Firm, O Most Merciful, Amin.
