Weekly Salawat: Al-Inshirah

 

In this salat, Sayyidi Habib Umar bin Hafiz teaches us to ask Allah for the same gifts that He bestowed upon His Beloved ﷺ . These are the gifts which Allah mentions in Surat al-Inshirah: the expansion of his heart, the removal of his burden and the raising of his station.

اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ على سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ الَّذي شَرَحْتَ لَهُ صَدْرَهُ صَلاةً تَشْرَحُ بِهَا صُدُورَنا و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَل

اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ على سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ الَّذي وَضَعْتَ عَنْهُ وِزْرَهُ صَلاةً تَضَعُ بِهَا عَنَّا أَوْزَارَنا و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ

اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ على سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ الَّذي رَفَعْتَ لَهُ ذِكْرَهُ صَلاةً تَرْفَعُ بِها ذِكْرَنا و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ
