Selected Salawat: Attaching Everything to the Prophet ﷺ

In this prayer upon the Prophet ﷺ Habib Ali al-Habashi (may Allah have mercy upon him and benefit us by him) teaches us to attach everything we have to the Prophet: our hearts, bodies, actions, intentions and our every movement and stillness.

اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ وسَلِّمْ على سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ

وارْبُطْ قَلْبِي بِقَلْبِهِ

وارْبُطْ جِسْمِي بِجِسْمِهِ

 وارْبُطْ عَمَلِي بِعَمَلِهِ

وارْبُطْ نِيَّتِي بِنِيَّتِهِ

وارْبُطْ حَرَكَاتي بِحَرَكَاتِهِ

وسَكَناتي بِسَكَناتِهِ


Allahumma salli wa sallim `ala sayyidina Muhammad

wa’rbut qalbi bi qalbihi

wa’rbut jismi bi jismihi

wa’rbut `amali bi `amalihi

wa’rbut niyyati bi niyyatihi

wa’rbut harakati bi harakatihi

wa’rbut sakanati bi sakanatihi


O Allah, bestow Your prayers and peace upon our Master Muhammad,

and attach my heart to his heart,

my body to his body,

my actions to his actions,

my intention to his intention,

my movements to his movements

and my stillness to his stillness.
