Weekly Salat: Ya Akhir

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 آخِر صَلِّ على عَبْدِكَ و حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ المَبْعُوثِ إلى آخِرِ الأُمَمِ و خَيْرِها و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ تَسْلِيماً واجْعَلْنا بِهِ مِنْ خَواصِّ أَنْصَارِهِ و وُرَّاثِهِ في آخِرِ الزَّمَنِ و مِنْ أَقْرَبِ النَّاسِ إِلَيْهِ و أَسْعَدِهِمْ بِهِ في اليَوْمِ الآخِرِ جُوداً و كَرَماً

O Allah, the Last, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muhammad, the Prophet who was sent to the last and best nation, and upon his Family and Companions, and by him make us among the elite of those who support him and inherit from him in the last days. Make us among the closest of people to him and those that the receive the most from him on the Last Day out of Your generosity and kindness.
