Receiving Everything from the Messenger of Allah ﷺ

In this awesome prayer, Habib Ali al-Habashi teaches us to ask to receive directly from the Messenger of Allah ﷺ everything which we need for the path: that which relates to knowledge, intention, focus, the physical and the spiritual.

اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ ، بِاللِّسَانِ الْجَامِعَة  في الْـحَضْرَةِ الْوَاسِعَة ، صَلَاةً تَـمُدُّ بِهَا جِسْمِيْ مِنْ جِسْمِه ، وَقَلْبِي مِنْ قَلْبِه ، وَرُوحِي مِنْ رُوحِه ، وَسِرِّي مِنْ سِرِّه ، وَعِلْمِي مِنْ عِلْمِه ، وعَمَلِي من عَمَلِه ، وخُلُقِي من خُلُقِه ، ونِيَّتِي من نِيَّتِه ، ووِجْهَتِي من وِجْهَتِه ، وقَصْدِي من قَصْدِه ، وتَعُودُ بَرَكاتُها عليَّ وعلى أَوْلادِي ، وَعَلَى أَصْحَابي ، وعلى أَهْلِ عَصْرِي ، يا نُور يا نُور ، اجْعَلْني نُوراً بِحقِّ النُّور

Allahumma salli wa sallim `ala sayyidina Muhammadin bi’l-lisani’l-jami`ati fī’l-hadrati’l-wasi`ati salatan tamuddu biha jismi min jismihi wa qalbi min qalbihi wa ruhi min ruhihi wa sirri min sirrihi wa `ilmi min `ilmihi wa `amali min `amalihi wa khuluqi min khuluqihi wa niyyati min niyyatihi wa wijhati min wijhatihi wa qasdi min qasdihi wa ta`udu barakatuha `alayya wa `ala awladi wa `ala ashabi wa `ala ahli `asri ya Nur ya Nur ij`alni nuran bihaqqi’n-Nur

O Allah, bestow prayers and peace with a tongue all-embracing, in the limitless divine presence upon our Master Muhammad, through which my body attains assistance from his body, my heart from his heart, my soul from his soul, my secret from his secret, my knowledge from his knowledge, my action from his action, my character from his character, my intention from his intention, my heart’s focus from his heart’s focus, my direct aspiration from his direct aspiration. May I attain the blessings of these prayers, along with my children, my companions and the people of my time. O Light, O Light, make me light by virtue of the light.

A Prayer for Divine Care

Sayyidi Habib `Umar bin Hafīz recommends reading the following du`a of Habib `Ali al-Habashi:

الَّلهُمَّ اجْعَلْنا مِمَّنْ رَعَتْهُمْ عَيْنُ عِنَايَتِكَ فِي جَمِيعِ الأَطْوَار

فَلَمْ يَمْنَعْهُمْ عَنْ الدُّخُولِ إلى حَضْرَتِكَ قَبِيحُ الأَوْزَار

ولَمْ يَحْجُبْهُمْ عَنْ مَوَاهِبِ فَضْلِكَ سَيِّءُ الِإصْرَار

 O Allah, make me among those who are in Your complete care in all their states, so that their wrongdoings do not prevent them from entering into Your presence and their persistent sins do not deprive them of Your bounties.
