Salawat with Allah’s Beautiful Names: Ya Mutafaddil (Bestower of Bounty)

In this prayer, Sayyidi Habib Umar bin Hafiz (may Allah protect him and benefit us by him) teaches us to call upon the Bestower of Bounty and to ask for an immense portion of that bounty (fadl). The Prophet ﷺ is also described as al-Mutafaddil, the generous distributor of Allah’s bounty.

اللَّهُمَّ يا اللهُ يا مُتَفَضِّلُ صَلِّ على عَبْدِكَ و حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ المُتَفَضِّل و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ تَسْلِيماً و آتِني مِن لَّدُنْكَ فَضْلاً عَظِيماً و خُذْ بِيَدِي إِلَيْكَ أَخْذَ أَهْلِ الفَضْلِ عَلَيْكَ فَضْلاً و إِحْسَاناً

O Allah, O Bestower of Bounty, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muhammad, the Prophet, the bestower of bounty and upon his Family and Companions. Bless me with immense bounty directly from You. Out of your bounty and kindness, Bring me to You as You bring to You those who have merit in Your sight.
