The Du’a of the Quthb of Homs
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
The following is taken from The Du’a of the Quthb, Shaykh Sa’id Kuhil (q.s.) from Homs.
We present the du’a of the erudite scholar, the Quthb of Homs, Shaykh Sa’id Kuhil ash-Shadzili (q.s.). The late shaykh was known to read this every morning before fajr.
Allahumma maa asbaha bii min ni’mati aw biahadin min khalqika faminka wahdika laa sharika laka falaka al-hamdu wa laka ash-shukr. Allahumma ij’al aj’alu awwala hadzaa an-nahaar swalaahan wa awsathuhu najaahan wa akhiruhu falaahan. Allahumma alhamanii fiihi dzirika wa shukrika wa husni ‘ibaadatik. Allahumma matti’ani bi asw-swihati wa al-‘aafiyyati hatta ataqawwiya ‘alaa thaa’atika. Wa as’aa limardhaatika. Allahumma swalli ‘alaa Sayyidinaa Muhammadin sayyidi muttaqin wa imaama al-‘aabidiin wa rasulu Rabb al-‘aalamiin. Swalawatu Allah wa malaa’ikatuhu jami’i khalqihi ‘alayka yaa sayyidii yaa rasul Allah wa ‘alaa ali baytika wa aswhaabika ajma’iin.
”O Allah! Whatever has reached me this morning of a bounty or anybody else of Your Creation is from You Alone, there is no partner with You. Thus, indeed all praise and gratefulness is Due to You Alone. O Allah! Make the beginning of this morning goodness, its middle success and its end a reaping of rewards. O Allah! Inspire me in this time, Your remembrance and thankfulness and good worship of You. O Allah! Let me enjoy good health and well-being so that I may have strength to worship You, and seek Your Contentment. O Allah! Send Your Prayers upon our master, Muhammad, the Master of the Pious, Leader of the Worshipers and the Messenger of the Lord of the Worlds. May the Prayers of Allah, His angels and the entire Creation be upon you my master, the Messenger of Allah and upon your household and companions, all of them.”
