Salawat with Allah’s Beautiful Names: Ya Fard (the Matchless)

This prayer is taken from Sayyidi Habib Umar bin Hafiz’s collection of prayers using Allah’s beautiful names in which he calls upon Allah by His beautiful names 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.

اللَّهُمَّ يا اللهُ يا فَرْدُ صَلِّ على عَبْدِكَ و حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ الفَرْد و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ تَسْلِيماً وأَفْرِدْنِي بِهِ لما خَلَقْتَنِي لَهُ و اجْعَلْ لي بِذَلِكَ عِزَّاً و مَجْداً فَرِيداً

O Allah, O Matchless One, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muhammad, the matchless Prophet and upon his Family and Companions, and by him devote me completely to that for which You have created me and bless me with honour and matchless nobility.
