Habib 'Umar al-Hafizh's (q.s.) Du'a for Rabi' al-Awwal
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Every year in Rabi’ al-Awwal, Habib ‘Umar ibn al-Hafizh (q.s.) gives a prayer upon the Prophet (s.a.w.) to be read by anyone who wishes. This year he has given us the following prayer to be read 7,000 times if possible, in this blessed month:
Allaahumma innā nad’uuka bi asmaa’ik’al-husnaa wa kalimaatik at-taammaati an tuswalliya wa tusallima ‘alaa shariif adz-dzaat kariim asw-swifaat ‘abdika wa habiibika sayyidinaa Muhammadin wa ‘alaa aalihi wa swahbihi al-qaadat wa ikhwaanihi min an-nibiyyiin wa aalihim wa swahbihim wa at-taabi’iin, wa an tughiits al-muslimiin wa talthufa bihim wa swahbihiim wa at-taabi’iin bihim fiimaa tajrii bihi al-maqaadiir, yaa ni’ma al-mawlaa wa ni`ma an-naswiir wa an tufarrija kuruubahum wa takshifa as-su’ wa adh-dhurraa ‘anhum. Ya Qadiru Ya Qawwiyu Ya Matiinu Ya Arham ar-Rahimiin Aamiin.
O Allah, we call upon You and ask You by Your Beautiful Names and Your Complete Words, to Bestow prayers and peace upon the possessor of the most noble essence and the most honorable attributes, Your slave and beloved, our Master Muhammad, and upon his family and companions, the best of leaders, and upon his brothers among the prophets and their families and companions and those that follow them. We ask that You to Aid the Muslims and Treat them Gently in that which Your Decree has in store for them, for You are the Best of Protectors and Best of Supporters, and to Relieve their tribulations and to Eemove evil and harm from them, O All-Powerful, O Strong, O Firm, O Most Merciful. Amin.
