Weekly Salawat: Ya Mu`id

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 مُعيدُِ صَلِّ على عَبْدِكَ و حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ شَفِيعِي فِي الَمعَادِ و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ تَسْلِيماً وأَعِدْ عَلَيْنا  بِهِ عَوَائِدَ الخَيْرِظاهِراً و باطِناً

Allāhumma yā Allāhu yā Mu`īdu ṣalli `alā `abdika wa ḥabībika sayyidinā Muḥammad an-Nabī shafī`ī fi’l-ma`ād wa `alā ālihi wa ṣaḥbihi wa sallim taslīman wa a`id `alaynā bihi `awā’ida’l-khayri  ẓāhiran wa bāṭinā

O Allah, O Returner, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muḥammad, the Prophet who is my intercessor in the hereafter when I return to You and upon his Family and Companions, and by him give us all good outwardly and inwardly.
