Weekly Salawat: Ya Mughni (the One Who makes people independent)

 

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 مُغْنِي صَلِّ على عَبْدِكَ و حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ المُغْنِي بِإِذْنِكَ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ على مَنْ شِئْتَ مِنْ عِبَادِكَ و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ تَسْلِيماً وأَغْنِني بِهِ و بِبَرَكاتِهِ و وَجَاهَتِهِ بِفَضْلِكَ عَمَّنْ سِوَاكَ

O Allah, the One Who makes people independent, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muhammad, the Prophet who by Your grace and permission made Your chosen slaves independent and upon his Family and Companions, and  make me by him and his blessings and station and by Your grace independent of other than You.
