Weekly Salawat: Ya Ba`ith

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 باعِثُ صَلِّ على عَبْدِكَ و حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ المَبْعُوثِ مِنْكَ بِالرَّحْمَةِ و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ تَسْلِيماً واجْعَلْنِي لَهُ يَوْمَ البَعْثِ رَفِيقاً

 Allāhumma yā Allāhu yā Bā`ithu ṣalli `alā `abdika wa ḥabībika sayyidinā Muḥammad an-Nabī al-mab`ūthi minka birraḥmati wa `alā ālihi wa ṣaḥbihi wa sallim taslīman w’aj`alnī lahu yawma’il-ba`thi rafīqā.

O Allāh, O Dispatcher, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muḥammad, the Prophet who was dispatched by You with mercy and upon his Family and Companions, and make me his companion on the Day of Resurrection.
