Weekly Salawat: Yā Mujīb

 

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 مُجِيبُ صَلِّ على عَبْدِكَ و حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ المُجِيب و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ تَسْلِيماً و كُنْ لِدُعائِنا بِهِ مُجيباً و اجْعَلْنِي لِنِدائِكَ و نِدَائِهِ مُلَبِّياً مُسْتَجِيباً

 

Allāhumma yā Allāhu yā Mujību ṣalli `alā `abdika wa ḥabībika sayyidinā Muḥammad an-Nabī al-mujīb wa `alā ālihi wa ṣaḥbihi wa sallim taslīman wa kun li du`ā’inā bihi mujīban w’aj`alnī li nidā’ika wa nidā’ihi mulabbiyan mustajībā

O Allāh, O Responsive One, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muḥammad, the responsive Prophet and upon his Family and Companions, and by him answer our prayers and make me someone who responds immediately to Your call and to his call.
