Salawaat by Al-Habib

Allah, The Glorified and the Exalted inspired al-Habib to compose the following salawaat on our Beloved Prophet Khaatamun Nabiyyeen, Rahmatullil 'Alameen Muhammad Mustafa Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam. It comes naturally for any muhib (loving disciple) to make it his daily wird (additional voluntary invocation). These salawaat have been published in the kitab of Dr. Mustafa al-Badawi titled "Ziyara Sayyidi'l Kawnain Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Aalihi wa Sallam" (Visit To The Leader of both The Worlds) to be recited at the Rawda of Rasulullah Sallallahu 'alaihi wa Sallam in Madina.

Allahumma salli wa sallim 'alaa Sayyidina Muhammad
Habib-ir-Rahmaan
Wa Durratil akwaan
Al-Haadiri ma'a man salla 'alayhi fee kulli zamaan wa makaan
Wa 'alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa tabi'eehim bi-ihsaan

O Allah! Bestow blessings and peace on Sayyidina Muhammad,
the beloved of the Beneficent,
and the most precious in all creation
who is present with whoever sends blessings on him in every age and place,
and on his family and companions and good followers.

Allahumma salli 'alaa Sayyidina Muhammad
Sayyidil kawnayn
Wa bahjatath-thaqalayn
Wa Jaddil Hasanayn
Waj'al lee bissalaati alayhi qurrata 'ayn
Wa 'alaa aalihi wa sahbihi as sallim.

O Allah! Bestow blessings and peace on Sayyidina Muhammad,
the leader of both the worlds,
the light of jinn and people,
the grandfather of Imam Hasan and Imam Husayn,
and with this blessing on him make him the delight of my eyes
and (bestow blessings and peace as well)
on his family and companions.

Allahumma salli 'alaa Sayyidina Muhammad in-Nabiyy il-Ummiyy
Wa aalihi wa sallim tasleema
Wa Astaghfirullahal 'Azeem wa atubu Ilayh

O Allah! Bestow blessings and total peace on Sayyidina Muhammad
the Prophet not taught by any human (but by You, O Allah),
and on his family
and I beg forgiveness of Allah, The Incomparably Great,
and turn to Him repentant.

Allahumma Yaa Nur as-samaawaati wal ardi
Salli 'alaa man khalaqtahu min Nurika
Waghfirlee dhanbee wa nawwir qalbee bi-Anwaari Ma'rifatika
Wa bi-Ma'rifatihi Bika
Wa 'alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallim

O Allah! O The Light of the heavens and the earth
Bestow blessings and peace on the one you created from Your Light
and forgive my sins and fill my heart with
the light of Your Knowledge and the knowledge that is with You,
and (bestow blessings and peace as well)
on his family and companions.

Allahumma salli 'alaa Sayyidina Muhammad
Saahibil maqaamil asnaa
Al-makhsusi bi-sharafil adnaa
Man laulaahu maa kunna
Waghmir
naa bi-anfaasihi fil hissi wal ma'naa
Wa 'alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallim

O Allah! Bestow blessings and peace on Sayyidina Muhammad,
the one who has the highest position;
the one with special nobility of closeness (to Allah);
were it not for him, we wouldn't exist;
immerse us in his breath, in reality and in its true meaning,
and (bestow blessings and peace as well)
on his family and companions.

Allahumma salli 'alaa Sayyidina Muhammad
Alladhee maa dhukirasmuhu 'alaa mareedin illa shufiya
Wa laa saqeemin illa 'ufiya
Wa 'alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallim

O Allah! Bestow blessings and peace on Sayyidina Muhammad
the mention of whose name before anyone who is sick, cures him
and anyone who is ill and in pain is given good health
and (bestow blessings and peace as well)
on his family and companions.

Allahumma salli wa sallim
'alal badril muneer
Al-Bashir in-Nadheer
Ruhi ma'nal wujud
War-Rahmatil muhdaati li kulli maujud
Wa 'alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa taabi'eehim ilaa yaumil maw'ood

O Allah! Bestow blessings and peace
on the bright moon,
the bringer of glad tidings, the warner,
the soul of all existence
and the merciful gift for all that exists
and on his family and companions and followers
till the Promised Day.

Al-Habib Rady Allahu 'Anhu must have sensed that those in his daaerah (spiritual learning circle) would automatically adopt this as their daily wird (additional voluntary recitation). It was perhaps for this reason that he kept these salawaat short (yet comprehensive) so as not to be too much of a burden on the mureedeen (loving disciples). And true to the tradition of his illustrious ancestor Mawlana al-Haddad Rady Allahu 'Anhu, who had seven salawaat for wird, he also settled for seven!

Naf'an Allahu bih
May Allah make us benefit from him, Aameen
