Weekly Salawat: Al-Mui`zz

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 مُعِزُّ صَلِّ على عَبْدِكَ و حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ الِّذي تُعِزُّ مَنْ وَالَاهُ و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ تَسْلِيماً و أَعِزَّنِي بِهِ في الدَّارَيْنِ إِعْزَازاً

Allāhumma yā Allāhu yā Mui`zzu ṣalli `alā `abdika wa ḥabībika sayyidinā Muḥammad an-Nabī alladhī tu`izzu man wālāhu wa `alā ālihi wa ṣaḥbihi wa sallim taslīman wa a`izzanī bihi fi’ddarayani i`zazā

O Allāh, O Bestower of Honour, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muḥammad, upon whose followers You bestow honour and upon his Family and Companions, and by him bestow honour upon me.
