Weekly Salawat: Al-Ḥakam

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 حَكَمُ صَلِّ على عَبْدِكَ و حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ الحاكِم بِالحَقِّ و العَدْلِ و الهُدى و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ تَسْلِيماً و  ارْزُقْني بِهِ الاسْتِسْلامَ لِحُكْمِكَ و العَمَلَ على أَحْكَامِ شَرْعِكَ و احْكُمْ لي بِالفَوْزِ يَوْمَ اللِّقَاءِ يا أَحْكَمَ الحَاكِمِين

O Allāh, O Arbitrator, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muḥammad, the Prophet who ruled according to truth, justice and guidance and upon his Family and Companions, and by him bless me with complete surrender to Your judgement and the ability to act according to the rulings of Your Sacred Law and decree success for me on the Day of Meeting, O Most Just of Judges!
