Weekly Salawat: Yā Karīm

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 كريمُ صَلِّ على عَبْدِكَ و حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ الكَرِيم و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ تَسْلِيماً و كَرِّمْنِي بِهِ تَكْرِيماً

 

 Allāhumma yā Allāhu yā Karīmu ṣalli `alā `abdika wa ḥabībika sayyidinā Muḥammad an-Nabī al-karīm wa `alā ālihi wa ṣaḥbihi wa sallim taslīman wa karrimnī bi takrīmā 

O Allāh, O Generous, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muḥammad, the generous Prophet and upon his Family and Companions, and by him pour Your generosity upon me.
