Weekly Ṣalawāt: Yā Razzāq

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 رَزَّاقُ صَلِّ على عَبْدِكَ و حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ وَاسِطَةِ الأَرْزَاقِ و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ تَسْلِيماً و ارْزُقْنِي بِهِ مِنْ أَرْزَاقِكَ الحِسِّيِّةِ و المَعْنَوِيِّةِ رِزْقاً واسِعَاً

 

Allāhumma yā Allāhu yā Razzāqu ṣalli `alā `abdika wa ḥabībika sayyidinā Muḥammad an-nabī wāsiṭati’l-arzāq wa `alā ālihi wa ṣaḥbihi wa sallim taslīman w’arzuqnī bihi min arzāqika al-ḥissiyyati w’al-ma`nawiyyati rizqan wāsi`ā

O Allāh, O Provider, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muḥammad, the Prophet, the means to attaining all provision and upon his Family and Companions, and by him bless me with the most immense portion of Your physical and spiritual provision.
