Weekly Salawat: Ya Wajid

We continue our journey through Sayyidi Habib `Umar’s collection of prayers using Allah’s beautiful names. In this collection, Habib 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 واجِدُ صَلِّ على عَبْدِكَ و حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ الواجِد و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ تَسْلِيماً وهَبْ لي بِهِ وَجْداً أَجِدُ بِهِ هَزَّةَ الشَّوْقِ إلى اللِّقاءِ في لُطْفٍ و عَافِية

O Allah, O One Who possesses everything, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muhammad, the Prophet who possesses everything, and upon his Family and Companions, and by him bless me with feeling the delight of longing for the meeting (with You) in goodness and wellbeing.
