Weekly Ṣalawāt: Ashraf al-Tawbāt

In this prayer Sayyidi al-Habib Umar bin Hafiz (may Allah preserve him and benefit us by him) teaches us to seek the highest type of repentance and how to seek acceptance for that repentance.

اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ أَفْضَلَ الصَّلوَات
صَلاةً تُحَقِّقُنا بِها بِأَشْرَفِ التَّوْبَات
و تَرْفَعُنا بِها في التَّوْبَةِ أَعَالِيَ الدَّرَجَات
مَعَ مَنْ ارْتَضَيْتَ و اصْطَفَيْتَ مِنْ أَهْلِ الأَوْبَةِ و الإِنَابَةِ و الإِخْبَات
يامُجِيبَ الدَّعْوَات و يا قَاضِي الحَاجات
وَعَلَى آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و أَهْلِ المَحَبَّةِ و المَوَدَّات

O Allah, bestow the best of prayers upon our Master Muhammad, which enable us to attain the most noble types of repentance, by which You raise us to the highest degrees of repentance along with those with whom You are content and those whom You have chosen from the people that constantly return to you in a state of repentance and utter humility, O One who answers our prayers and fulfils our needs, and bestow prayers likewise upon his Family and Companions and all those that love him.
