Weekly Salawat: Prayers upon the One Whose Heart Never Sleeps ﷺ

Through prayers upon the Beloved ﷺ, the one whose heart never sleeps, Sayyidi al-Habib `Umar (may Allah preserve him and benefit us by him) teaches us to ask for the best and sweetest of things:

يَا حَيُّ يَا قَيُّومُ لا يَنَامُ، صَلِّ عَلَى مَنْ قَلْبُهُ لا يَنَام، حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّد، صَلاةً تَسْتَيْقِظُ بِهَا قُلُوبُنَا مِنَ المَنَام، ونُدْرِكُ بِهَا غَايَةَ المَرَام، وَتَجْمَعُ لَنَا بِهَا خَيْرَاتِ الدُّنْيَا وَالْقِيَام، وَنَنَالُ بِهَا شَرِيفَ

المحَادَثَةِ بِأَعْذَبِ الْكَلام، فِي دَارِ الْمَقَام، وَأَنْتَ عَنَّا رَاضٍ يَاذَا الْجَلالِ وَالإِكْرَام، وَعَلَى آلِهِ وَصَحْبِهِ وَسَلِّم تَسْلِيمَاً، وَالْحَمْدُ للهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِين

 

O Living, O Self-Existing, the One Who never sleeps, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon the one whose heart never sleeps, Your Beloved, our Master Muhammad, and upon his Family and Companions.

Through those prayers may our hearts awaken from their slumber, may we attain all that we seek, may we receive all the good things of this life and the next and may we be honored with the sweetest of conversations in the ever-lasting abode while You are content with us, O Possessor of Majesty and Generosity.

All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of the Worlds.
