Allah called his Beloved ﷺ by one of His names, al-Ra’uf – the Most Kind. Allah said to him that he is: “to the believers most kind and merciful” (9.128). In this prayer, Sayyidi Habib Umar bin Hafiz teaches us to ask for Allah’s kindness for ourselves and all believers through the means of the most kind Prophet ﷺ .
اللَّهُمَّ يا اللهُ يا رَؤُوفُ صَلِّ على عَبْدِكَ و حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ الرَّؤُوف و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ تَسْلِيماً و وَفِّرْ حَظَّنا مِنْ رَأْفَتِكَ و كُنْ بِنا و بِالمُؤْمِنينَ رَؤُوفاً رَحِيماً
O Allah, O Most Kind, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muhammad, the most kind Prophet and upon his Family and Companions, and bless us with a huge portion of Your kindness and be kind and merciful to us and all believers.
