Weekly Ṣalawāt: Yā Bāri’

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 بَارِىء صَلِّ على عَبْدِكَ و حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ أَكْرَمِ مَنْ بَرَأَتَ و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ تَسْلِيماً و أَثْبِتْنِي عِنْدَكَ في خَيْرِ البَرِيَةِ فَضْلاً و إِحْسَاناً

 

Allāhumma yā Allāhu yā Bāri’ ṣalli `alā `abdika wa ḥabībika sayyidinā Muḥammad akrami man bara`ta wa `alā ālihi wa ṣaḥbihi wa sallim tasliman wa athbitnī `indaka fī khayr al-barīyati faḍlan wa iḥsāna.

O Allāh, O Originator, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muḥammad, the Prophet, the most noble of people who You brought into existence and upon his Family and Companions and make me among the best of people in Your sight out of Your bounty and kindness.
