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 عَلِيمُ صَلِّ على عَبْدِكَ و حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ العَلِيمِ و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ تَسْلِيماً و عَلِّمْنِي بِهِ مِن لَّدُنْكَ عِلْمَاً
Allāhumma yā Allāhu yā `Alīmu ṣalli `alā `abdika wa ḥabībika sayyidinā Muḥammad an-nabī al-`Alīmi wa `alā ālihi wa ṣaḥbihi wa sallim taslīman wa `allimnī bihi milladunka `ilmā
O Allāh, O All-Knowing, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muḥammad, the Prophet, the most knowledgeable of all people and upon his Family and Companions, and by him bless me with knowledge directly from Your presence.
