Weekly Salawat: Ya Mutafaddil (the Bestower of Bounty)

At Eid we recognise Allah’s bounty upon us and ask for an increase in it through remembering His Beloved ﷺ. Sayyidi Habib Umar bin Hafiz (may Allah preserve him and benefit us by him) teaches us to ask Allah for an increase in blessings, for gratitude and for those blessings to be preserved.

 

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.
