Weekly Ṣalawāt: Yā Khāliq

We continue our journey through Sayyidī Ḥabīb `Umar’s collection of prayers using Allah’s beautiful names. In this collection, Ḥabīb `Umar calls upon Allah by His beautiful names one by one and then asks Him to bestow prayers upon His Beloved by those names. Finally, he asks Allah for a portion of those attributes which belong to Allah and which He has bestowed upon His Messenger ﷺ. He thus teaches us about the attributes of Allah and His Messenger ﷺ and teaches us how to seek a portion of those attributes.

اللَّهُمَّ يا اللهُ يا خَالِق صَلِّ على عَبْدِكَ و حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ أَكْرَمِ خَلْقِكَ و أَسْعَدِ مَخْلوقَاتِكَ و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ تَسْلِيماً و حَسِّنْ بِهِ خَلْقِي و خُلُقي فَضْلاً و إِحْسَاناً

 

Allāhumma yā Allāhu yā Khāliq ṣalli `alā `abdika wa ḥabībika sayyidinā Muḥammad akrami khalqik wa as`adi makhlūqātik wa `alā ālihi wa ṣaḥbihi wa sallim tasliman wa hassin bihi khalqī wa khuluqī faḍlan wa iḥsāna

O Allāh, O Creator, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muḥammad, the Prophet, the most noble and felicitous of Your creatures and upon his Family and Companions and by him beautify my outer form and my character out of Your bounty and kindness.
