Power of Istighfar and Salawats in Days of Difficulty

From the Realities of Mawlana (Q) as taught by Shaykh Nurjan Mirahmadi
A’udhu Billahi Minash Shaitanir Rajeem
Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem
I seek refuge in Allah from Satan, the rejected one
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Build Your Protective Shield Under the Guidance of Ulul Amr
If we don’t understand the time we’re in, we don’t understand the medicine that’s required to lift us from that zulumat (oppression). It means that in this ocean of oppression and darkness, that for us the power of istighfar and constantly understanding that a shield of light; when the believer builds themself through their actions, through their ‘amal, through all of the practices which are pleasing to Allah (AJ) and His beloved Rasul, under the guidance of ulul amr (saints).
These ‘amal are like a shield of protection around the believer. And when that shield of protection that pushing away the shayateen (devils), pushing away all evilness, everything that comes with that understanding of mushkilat, every difficulty.
Benefit From the Positive Energy in Your Shield of Protection
What they want us to sort of have a visual, and an understanding, it’s a shield of protection. You see the shield is up for the believer. If they can reach a point in which they have a protective shield, they should feel a tremendous himmah (zeal), a tremendous light, a tremendous energy to achieve because all their actions at that time are profitable. You get the benefit of every energy coming in if the shield of protection is there.
Because of every coming in, every positive energy in a positive environment will be felt. The salah (prayer) will be powerful, the zikr (Divine remembrance) will be powerful, the siyam (fast) will be powerful. Every action, the zakah (charity); everything that the believer does with the shield of protection, if they achieve that understanding. This means they are now benefiting through that positive energy, and that positive energy keeps increasing, keeps increasing. And they want us to know, and for myself to know, that what shaitan knows. That he knows that there’s a field of energy protecting that believer emanating from their heart, all around their being.
Shaitan Creates Holes in Your Protective Force Field
And he knows that by inspiring that believer towards sin. Towards the sayyiat (sins) is going to open a hole within that protection. And the cleverness of these sins are unimaginable. That his only goal is to put the believer in a condition in which they commit sins. And every sin that they commit immediately opens a hole in that force field.
If that hole in a force field opens, the shayateen are coming in like an alien invasion. When you watch a sci-fi movie and you watch these things that Allah (AJ) has in this ocean of creation. As soon as there’s a hole in that field of protection, there’s an entire invasion of shayateen, that coming in at such a high speed is impossible for the believer to protect themself. And all that shaitan wants is to increase the sins. So, then another hole opens, another hole opens, another hole opens until they are affecting the energy of that believer. We said that if you take yourself from positivity and that shield begins to go down.
Doubt Destroys Faith in the Believer
It’s important for us to understand because in these days, they want us to know that you’re in, we are in such an ocean of zulumat (oppression), that nobody is clever and figuring it out. Because what’s going to happen in this oppression is that when shaitan comes in, he pulls the believer from small to bring in the big. He doesn’t bring the kabir, the big sins because they would understand, ‘Oh, this is shaitan inspiring me.’
They inspire towards the small and begin to take away the faith of the believer until that person begins to have a shak and doubt in their life. Doubt in Allah (AJ), doubt in Prophet ﷺ, doubt in the ulul amr, the shaykhs and the guides. The ulul amr (saints) come first because Allah (AJ) is Most High. Shaitan is eating through a wall, and going up, up, up, up. So, it means that at this day and age, there is no believer that became clever and figured out that his shaykh and his guide is wrong. And that the action of the shaykh and the guide is wrong. The practices of the shaykh and the guide are wrong.
Shaitan Inspires Us to Move Away From Good ‘Amal
But what they want us to understand is it’s the believer that’s under attack. And every bad action that they commit opens a hole. When that hole comes, the shayateen (devils) are moving in. When the shayateen move in, it brings doubt because it takes away the good and gives it to be a negative; takes away the good, and gives it to be a negative, and then that believer begins to have doubt in everything, everything that they’re doing. They don’t believe that, ‘Oh, I don’t feel anything anymore. I don’t feel any connection anymore. I don’t think that who I’m following is correct anymore.’
And then, shaitan moves towards the ‘amal, and begin to inspire the person to pray late, and not to pray the sunnah, and not to pray the fard (obligatory) on time. It means every action, like a domino, will begin to increase. And begin to push that person towards not doing actions that are pleasing to Allah (AJ).
We Are At the Lowest Point of Our Belief in History
So, then this day and age, there are no clever people that are figuring it out. There are only people who have succumbed to the energy of shaitan, and they entered into the oceans of shak and doubt. Because they are not at the height of Islam. We’re at the lowest point of belief in our history.
That’s why you see as a whole, there are people who actually go out and they doubt the madhabs (schools of Islamic law). They think that with their jahil (ignorant) brain, they figured out a new madhab. This is the example because sometimes people can’t see within themselves, so Allah (AJ) says look on the horizon. Don’t you see a collective group of people now that question every madhab?
﴾سَنُرِيهِمْ آيَاتِنَا فِي الْآفَاقِ وَفِي أَنفُسِهِمْ حَتَّىٰ يَتَبَيَّنَ لَهُمْ أَنَّهُ الْحَقُّ ۗ … ﴿٥٣
41:53 – “Sanureehim ayatina fil afaqi wa fee anfusihim hatta yatabayyana lahum annahu alhaqqu…” (Surat Al-Fussilat)
“We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth…” (Explained in Detail, 41:53)
Those Who Attack the Hadith and Sunnah Have Weak Hearts and Beliefs
Then they’ll question the sunnah (traditions of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ), because this is the way of shaitan. The madhab were the ulul amr (saints). So, they’re all attacking the madhabs, they even attack the maqams of these pious awliyaullah (saints), of pious ulama and scholars. That was the attack of the ulul amr. Then, they begin to go after the hadith, and they begin to find every hadith to be weak. Not because the hadith is weak, it’s because they’re ignorant fools, and their heart is weak, their belief is weak, and they think that they became clever, and they found weakness in something that these great ulama brought for us.
No, we’re at the worst of time. We’re at the time where insan (mankind) is like a baboon in a zoo, that all he does is take his feces and throw it at the window. We’re not at the height of our belief. We’re at the lowest point of our belief, and that is showing us on the horizon, they’re attacking the ulul amr. They’re attacking the madhabs. They find every hadith to be weak, God forbid, Astaghfirullah ‘Azim. Why? So, that they can take the sunnah away. And they say, ‘We’re Ahlul Qur’an (people of Qur’an) only.’ We follow Allah (AJ) only. Say, oh well, this was the madhab of shaitan when he said, ‘I’m not going to bow down to Adam (as).’
﴾وَإِذْ قُلْنَا لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ اسْجُدُوا لِآدَمَ فَسَجَدُوا إِلَّا إِبْلِيسَ أَبَىٰ وَاسْتَكْبَرَ وَكَانَ مِنَ الْكَافِرِينَ ﴿٣٤
2:34 – “Wa idh qulna lilmalayikati osjudo li Adama fasajado illa ibleesa aba wastakbara wa kana minal kafireen.” (Surat Al-Baqarah)
“And [mention] when We said to the angels, ‘Bow Down/make prostration to Adam’; so they prostrated, except for Iblis. He refused and was arrogant and became of the disbelievers/who reject faith.” (The Cow, 2:34)
Your Belief Will Be Like a Burning Coal in Your Hand
So, then we know who the imam is. This means then we understand that this is a time of tremendous darkness. Everything is being eaten in our belief and Prophet ﷺ describes your belief will be like a hot coal in your hand.
عَنْ أَنَسِ بْن مَالِكٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ :قَالَ رَسُولُ الله صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ:« يِأْتِي عَلَى النَّاسِ زَمَانٌ الْقَابِضُ عَلَى دِينِهِ كَالْقَابِضِ عَلَى الْجَمْرِ » رَوَاهُ التِّرْمِذِيُّ.
Qala RasulAllah (saws): “Ya ti ’alan nasi zamanul qabidu ‘ala dinihi kal qabidi ‘alal Jamr.” (Rawahu Tirmidhi)
Anas ibn Maalik (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing be upon him) said: “There will come upon the people a time when holding onto the religion will be like holding onto a burning ember (hot coal).” (Tirmidhi)
They come into our life and say, this is that time, this is the time the Prophet ﷺ was warning, ‘Holding your belief is like a fire.’ Because everyday you want to stop it and everyday you want to run away from it. Run to where? Run to the fire of jahannam (hell) that shaitan has prepared. That come, come with all your shak (doubt). Come into this fire because you’re not going to find ulul amr (saints) in there, and you’re not going to find Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ in there, and you’re not going to find Allah (AJ) there. So, who is going to be there? Shaitan.
Technology Leads Us to Unknowingly Commit Sins
This means then this time that we live, everything is based on that. So, it means every sin is coming to open a hole within that force of protection. And coming very clever. Coming through the internet, coming through every social media, coming through every action. The believer is committing a sin, committing a zina, committing an adultery. Where before they had to go to somebody’s door and to talk to somebody to enter into a zina, now they can do it via internet. They just start commenting, and already then, that sin has dressed that servant.
They don’t understand and know. And all of a sudden, shaitan enters into their heart, and enter into their heart, enter into their heart, until they become completely darkened within their heart. It means that everything that coming for us is a reminder that shaitan is using every vehicle possible, every means possible to attack the field – that force of protection. And every issue that comes up is not the issue of importance. Right? Because the issue of importance is the force field. Not, ‘Oh Shaykh, this like this, that this like this, this like this.’ No! If the force field was protected, the actions were protected, the zikr (Divine remembrance) was constantly patching the field, those issues wouldn’t be there.
Spiritual Medicine Treats the Root of the Problem, Not Just the Symptoms
That’s the difference between modern medicine and spiritual medicine. Modern medicine, you go to the doctor – he finds all these blisters. He says take some antibiotics. Well okay, I saw the blisters too. What was the big Einstein about that? Spiritual medicine comes and says that, ‘Why you have the blisters to begin with? Take the medicine, no problem. But there is something causing these blisters to appear. Go after that.’
If you go after what’s causing this problem, you should find yourself to be in a much better condition; not always worrying about the issue because of course you’re going to have many issues. You’re going to have thousands of issues because you’re filled with shak (doubt). If your sayyiat (sins) became so heavy, if your sins became so heavy and so many through so many different mediums. It was very difficult before. Before you had to find somebody and really, you know, commit a problem. Now, everybody is doing through internet. Through every Facebook, through every Instagram, through every Snapchat – through every means possible, its happening.
Without Barakah, Your Rizq Will Be Cut
So, in every direction there is a hole in the field of that believer and they’ve succumbed and they’re overwhelmed by doubt. By difficulties, by problems. Rizq (sustenance) is going to be the first cut, because no more barakah (blessings). Of course, rizq is cut. If there is no barakah, there is no rizq. If there is no light and there is no energy, there is no will to do anything. There is no power in the prayer. There is no power in any action because the battery is being cut. When the battery is cut, what happens? The rabbit doesn’t play anymore, the Duracell [rabbit], ting ding tin din ti di…that’s it. The energy has been cut. Then they come and say, ‘Oh, I have so many problems.’ Of course, you’re going to have so many problems, so many sins.
Be Vigilant of Your Heart to Increase Your Sustenance
So, in this day and age what they want for us is that be vigilant of the self. This is the whole way in the schools of adab (manners), the schools of tariqah (spiritual path). They are the schools of vigilance. Waquf of the qalb, that let me to be vigilant of my heart and of myself. That if every action I’m doing, is it creating a sin? Because then there’s going to be a negative energy that’s going to attack me. You want your rizq (sustenance) to come up? Cut all these sins. You want all your energy to come up? Cut all the sins. You want everything that you want positive in your life and all your requests that you have from Allah (AJ) is attack these sins.
Don’t Cut the Rope That Connects You to Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ
Our way is a way of silence, put a rock in your mouth. But nowadays it’s not about talking, it’s about typing. Put a rock on your hands. Before it was talking, so Sayyidina Abu Bakr Siddiq (as) was teaching us, put a rock in your mouth for at least seven years until the secrets of Holy Qur’an open in your heart. But now, the rock is not good enough. You need a straitjacket that can tie your fingers and your hands because the sin is coming through your fingers. People are talking through their hands now, talking and typing all sorts of nonsense. And each one of them a sin, each one making Prophet ﷺ to be upset.
If Prophet ﷺ is upset, the veil shuts. If the veil shuts, the person feels, ‘Meh, you know, I’m not feeling anything. Why I have to be with these people anymore? Let me be clever and walk away.’ Oh, it’s not your cleverness. You’re on top of a mountain and you just cut your rope. You’re now falling thousands of feet off of that hill. They’re taking you up very high, and each reality that you’re moving up, you’re closely tied and clinging to that rock, to that mountain. Don’t you see you’re thousands of feet off the ground, and you think you’re clever? No, shaitan is convincing you, ‘Cut your rope and fall to your death.’
Add the Power of Istighfar to the Practices Your Shaykh Gave You
And this is the era in which we live in. This is a reminder for anyone who thinks they became clever. You’re no better than those people who are now coming against every madhab (school of thought). They come against every sunnah, they come against everything until all that’s left for them is to be partners and sharik with shaitan. What they want for us is a prescription, is the powers of istighfar. Whatever your shaykh gave you of the zikr and wazifa (spiritual practice), keep that and add to it on a daily basis of making istighfar. That from the beginning of the day, we have tasbihs. Try to make a 100, 1000, 2000, 4000, 5000 istighfar. And say, Astaghfirullahal ‘Azim wa Atubu Ilayh.
أَسْتَغْفِرُالله الْعَظِيْمِ وَأَتُوْبُ إِلَيْه
“Astaghfirullahal ‘Azim, wa atubu ilayh.”
“I ask for forgiveness of Allah the Magnificent, and I turn to Him in repentance.”
Busy Yourself With Making Istighfar
Say, ‘Ya Rabbi, I’m filled with all of these difficulties of which I’m not able to combat, and I’m asking Your Istighfar.’ So, they busy themself from the beginning of the day to the midday with istighfar. “Astaghfirullah al ‘Azim wa Atubu Ilayh, Astaghfirullah al ‘Azim wa Atubu Ilayh.“ Get yourself a nice, Ferrari version of a tasbih (prayer beads). The 100, 200 counts, nothing 500 and a 1000. You can’t do anything with 500 count tasbih, dragging so far behind. You have to have a person behind you just to carry the beads. So, this is a very sinful person. Why they have so many beads?
And, you don’t ever show it to anyone because you don’t want to be showing off. This is for everybody. You know, you’re sitting in your car driving to work, sitting on a train for your commute, sitting at home if you’re unemployed, make istighfar. “Astaghfirullah al ‘Azim wa Atubu Ilayh.”
For those of us who are unemployed, then we sit on the couch and you make istighfar, Astaghfirullah al ‘Azim bi sifat al ‘Azim, bi sifat al ‘Azim. ‘Ya Rabbi, that I’m asking You from their sifat (attribute) of al ‘Azim. That in Your Greatness, that all these universes are but a dot in Your Presence. Are you really thinking my sins are frightening, ya Rabbi? Just obliterate them, obliterate them. In one week just take them away, ya Rabbi, please.’ Bi sifat al ‘Azim. Allah’s (AJ) greatness is that, ‘You ask and I’ll forgive.’
﴾وَقَالَ رَبُّكُمُ ادْعُونِي أَسْتَجِبْ لَكُمْ ۚ إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ عَنْ عِبَادَتِي سَيَدْخُلُونَ جَهَنَّمَ دَاخِرِينَ ﴿٦٠
40:60 – “Wa qaala Rabbukum ud ‘ooni astajib lakum…” (Surat Al-Ghafir)
“And your Lord says, Call upon Me; I Will Respond/Answer to your (prayer)…” (The Forgiver, 40:60)
Seek Forgiveness and Allah (AJ) Replies With “Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem”
Mawlana Shaykh’s (Q) teaching that when Allah (AJ) gives, He gives Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem.
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيْم
“Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem”
“In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful”
Every istighfar, every Astaghfirullah al ‘Azim wa Atubu Ilayh, Allah’s (AJ) reply is Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem. That in My name of Ar Rahmanir Raheem, My Promise to ummatul Muhammad ﷺ, I’m dressing you with “Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem.” If you know that all of Holy Qur’an is in Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, every reality in Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem.
Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, Sayyidina Ali (as), Sayyidatina Fatima Zahra (as), Sayyidina Hassan (as), Sayyidina Hussain (as) are in Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem. What can the believer want more than Allah’s (AJ) zikr back for us? Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem. Astaghfirullah al ‘Azim, Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem – that begins the patchwork.
As much as you can make istighfar, Astaghfirullah al ‘Azim wa Atubu Ilayh. You’re constantly trying to patch all of these holes that shaitan is coming through. As much as you’re patching, patching, patching, patching, and become vigilant over the bad actions, then a growth can begin to occur.
Continue to Cleanse Yourself and Those Around You
The believer is not only always cleansing themself. As soon as they begin to cleanse, even you think that you reached a point that your actions are good. Now begin to make istighfar for all your family that are around you. This means you continue. There’s never a time to end the istighfar, Astaghfirullah al ‘Azim wa Atubu Ilayh. ‘Ya Rabbi, if I’m clean, alhamdulillah. Now my children, now my wife, now my family, now my relatives, my mother, my father, my aunt; whomever didn’t ask, ya Rabbi, istighfar. I’m asking on their behalf. Grant them Your forgiveness and Your Rahmah (Mercy).’
And Allah (AJ) become pleased with you. That you’re not always worrying about your shoes, but you’re worrying about other people. Then Allah (AJ) begin to dress you from rahmah (mercy), dress you from blessings. And then become, ‘Ya Rabbi, I’m asking istighfar for my community and the people that I know. If they should enter into suffering, it would be as if I’m suffering. Ya Rabbi, grant me a najat (salvation), grant me an ease from difficulty.’
The Mercy of Water Washes Away Difficulties and Sins
And Allah (AJ) describe in Surat al-Qamar, when they came overwhelmed, they overwhelmed themself from these difficulties. They came and Allah (AJ) said, ‘And We opened the gates of the heaven with the overwhelming shower of water.’
﴾فَدَعَا رَبَّهُ أَنِّي مَغْلُوبٌ فَانتَصِرْ ﴿١٠﴾ فَفَتَحْنَا أَبْوَابَ السَّمَاءِ بِمَاءٍ مُّنْهَمِرٍ ﴿١١
54:10-11 – “Fada Aa rabba hu annee Maghloobun Faintasir. (10) Fa fatahna abwaba al sama bi ma in munhamirin. (11) (Surat Al- Qamar)
“Then he called on his Lord: ‘I am one Overpowered/overcome: Please then help (me)! (10) So We opened the gates of heaven, with water pouring forth. (11)” (The Moon, 54:10-11)
Water because it purifies. Water is a rahmah (mercy). Water washes away every type of mushkilat, every type of difficulty, every type of sayyiat (sins). Allah (AJ) washes it with water. At the same time, Allah (AJ) dresses it with a ni’mat and a blessing, that that water makes everything to grow.
After Cleansing With Istighfar, Sweeten Your Soul With Durood Sharif
By midday after they make their istighfar, istighfar, istighfar, then begin to perfume and fragrance your soul with durood sharif and salawat on Prophet ﷺ. ‘Ya Rabbi, You cleansed me with the istighfar. Now I’m asking that You sweeten me with the sunshine of all universes, the light of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.’
And make durood sharif, “Allahumma Salli ‘Ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ‘Ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammad. Allahumma Salli ‘Ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ‘Ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammad. Allahumma Salli ‘Ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ‘Ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammad. Allahumma Salli ‘Ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ‘Ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammad.”
اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ، وَعَلَى آلِ سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ وَ سَلِّمْ.
Allahumma salli ‘ala Sayyidina Muhammadin wa ‘ala aali Sayyidina Muhammadin wa Sallim.
O Allah! Send Peace and blessings upon our master Prophet Muhammad and upon the Family of our master Prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon him)
Embrace Sayyidina Muhammad’s ﷺ Light Throughout the Day to Feel His Nazar
It’s like you’re bathing in the sun of all realities. That you close your eyes and say, ‘Ya Rabbi, I’m not worthy of seeing anything.’ But visualize yourself like it’s a sunshine in front of you. ‘Ya Rabbi, with the power that you’ve given to the sun of all universes, that more powerful than the sun of this galaxy, that anything approaches that sun is obliterated.’ This means no badness will be showing, only will be given to it a nur and a light.
It means fragrance yourself, perfume yourself with durood sharif on Prophet ﷺ. And throughout the rest of the day till evening, you make durood sharif on Prophet ﷺ. Keep making salawat on Prophet ﷺ and you begin to feel the fragrance and the nazar (gaze) of Prophet ﷺ. That if you want Prophet’s ﷺ nazar upon you, then you constantly remember him alayhis salatu salaam. As much as you’re remembering Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, you’re praising Allah (AJ) and praising Prophet ﷺ at the same time.
“Allahumma Salli ‘Ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ‘Ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammad.” You have completed everything. You have completed the zikr of Allah (AJ) and the remembrance and praying for the reality of Prophet ﷺ. We pray that Allah (AJ) relieve us of difficulties and constantly inspire within our hearts of what’s right and wrong. To stop the wrong, and to be dressed by right.
We Have Witnessed Prophet Muhammad’s ﷺ Warning
At every moment this dunya (material world) is collapsing very fast. That Prophet ﷺ said that a day will come, in which a child, a boy of seven, his hair will be gray from ‘aazab (difficulty). And yesterday, the world witnessed that boy. What Prophet ﷺ saw 1,500 years ago is an isharat (sign) for us. That at that moment Prophet ﷺ looked and saw that boy. That, that boy will be seen by the world of what’s happening.
And the world can’t deny what type of oppression they’re putting upon these women and children. If you’re fighting men, you’re fighting men. But these women and children are being buried in buildings, and this boy came out all white.
﴾فَكَيْفَ تَتَّقُونَ إِن كَفَرْتُمْ يَوْمًا يَجْعَلُ الْوِلْدَانَ شِيبًا ﴿١٧
73:17 – “Fakaifa tattaqoona in kafartum yawmany yaj’alul wildaana sheeba” (Surat Al-Muzzammil)
“Then how can you fear, if you disbelieve, a Day that will make the children white-haired?” (The Enshrouded One, 73:17)
Ask to Be at Prophet’s ﷺ Feet With Allah’s (AJ) Support
Every day the hadith are opening, zuhoor (appearance) of Sayyidina Mahdi (as) is coming very fast. At every moment, we should be praying and crying to Allah (AJ), istighfar, and durood sharif that, ‘Ya Rabbi, we’re not ready. That what’s coming, I can’t be in this condition. Where is the support?’ We should be asking Allah (AJ), ‘Where’s the support, ya Rabbi? Don’t let me to be in the hands of people who will oppress me. Grant me Your najat (salvation), grant me Sultanan Naseera, grant me to be at the feet of Prophet ﷺ, that I achieved and that Your Rida and satisfied with me.’
﴾وَقُل رَّبِّ أَدْخِلْنِي مُدْخَلَ صِدْقٍ وَأَخْرِجْنِي مُخْرَجَ صِدْقٍ وَاجْعَل لِّي مِن لَّدُنكَ سُلْطَانًا نَّصِيرًا ﴿٨٠
17:80 – “Wa qul Rabbi adkhelni mudkhala Sidqin wa akhrejni mukhraja Sidqin waj’al li min ladunka Sultanan NaSeera.” (Surat Al-Isra)
“Say: O my Lord! Let my entry be by the Gate of Truth and Honour, and likewise my exit by the Gate of Truth and Honour; and grant me from Your Presence a Victorious King to aid (me).” (The Night Journey, 17:80)
Seek to Gain Allah’s (AJ) Satisfaction
‘Otherwise, I will be put into the hands of people who are with no mercy.’ And Allah (AJ) say, ‘You’ll be cleaned like that.’ So, awliyaullah inspiring within us: don’t reach to that point, but keep begging Allah (AJ) be rida with me. Ya Rabbi, Ilahi anta maqsudi wa ridhaka matlubi.
اِلَهِى اَنْتَ مَقْصُوْدِيْ وَرِضَاكَ مَطْلُوْبِيْ
“Illahi anta maqsodi, wa Ridaka Matlobi.”
“My God, You are my aim, and Your Satisfaction is what I seek.”
I’m begging Your forgiveness and begging Your Rida and Satisfaction upon me. Grant me from Sultanan Naseera (Victorious King), that I enter into the presence of Prophet ﷺ, and that Prophet ﷺ sign upon me that, ‘We’re satisfied with you, that we’re happy with you, that you’re under our nazar (gaze) and under our protection.’
Subhana rabbika rabbal ‘izzati ‘amma yasifoon, wa salaamun ‘alal mursaleen, walhamdulillahi rabbil ‘aalameen. Bi hurmati Muhammad al-Mustafa wa bi sirri surat al-Fatiha.
