Supplication Narrated by Abu Muhammad: A Profound Prayer

In the rich history of Islamic tradition and profound supplication, a significant narration comes from Abu Muhammad. He recounts the words of Abdullah Al Mausili, Rahimahullah, famously known as “Ibne Mustahir.” A man of deep piety and God-consciousness, Abdullah Al Mausili’s teachings offer a unique perspective on supplication and remembrance of Allah.

The Essence of the Supplication

Abdullah Al Mausili emphasized the importance of a unique form of prayer—one that encompasses an unmatched level of praise for Allah, blessings for the Noble Messenger (Darood), and a heartfelt supplication (Dua). He proposed a method of prayer for those aspiring to offer praise and prayers that have never been expressed before, either in the heavens or on earth.

The Unparalleled Supplication

The supplication, as narrated, is not just a prayer but a combination of ultimate praise, Darood, and Dua. The essence of this supplication lies in its comprehensiveness and its capacity to capture the limitless nature of God’s attributes. Abdullah Al Mausili’s instruction was clear: to recite specific words that encapsulate this profound devotion and reverence.

The Arabic Dua and Its Meaning

The supplication in Arabic is as follows:


اَللَّهُمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ كَمَا أَنْتَ أَهْلُهُ فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ كَمَا أَنْتَ أَهْلُهُ وَافْعَلْ بِنَا مَا أَنْتَ أَهْلُهُ فَإِنَّكَ أَهْلُ التَّقْوَى وَأَهْلُ الْمَغْفِرَةِ.”

Translated, it means: “O Allah! All praise is for you, as you are worthy of it. Bestow complete mercy upon Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam, as you are worthy of granting mercy, and deal with us in all situations with your mercy and help, as you are worthy of it. Indeed, you are the only one deserving of reverence and capable of forgiving sins.”

The Comprehensive Nature of this Prayer

This supplication is a prayer and a combination of Darood, Salam, and the praise of Allah. It represents the infinite nature of Allah and his worthiness in doing things. The supplication implicitly asks for well-being and goodness in worldly life and the hereafter.

Incorporating the Supplication in Daily Prayers

Abdullah Al Mausili advised that one can achieve a comprehensive approach to worship by reciting this dua at the beginning and end of any prayer. In this prayer, you can praise Allah and send blessings to Muhammad (SM). A method for increasing the likelihood of the prayer being accepted.

This type of narration offers a profound way to connect with divine power. Make it a unique and comprehensive submission. It is a testament to the depth and richness of Islamic spiritual practices.
