Weekly Salat: Ya Barr (The Beneficent)

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 بَرُّ صَلِّ على عَبْدِكَ و حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ البَرِّ و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ تَسْلِيماً و كُنْ لنا بِهِ بَرَّاً رَؤُوفاً

O Allah, the Beneficent, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muhammad, the beneficent Prophet and upon his Family and Companions, and by him be beneficent and kind to us.
