I wrote about the wonderful and precious ijaza of Shaykh Saleh al-Jafari, the great saint and scholar, to all for recitation of this great prayer on the Holy Prophet (alayhi salatu wa s-salam) here. As we are in the blessed month of Rabi al Awwal, the month in which the Messanger of God, Sayyidna Muhammad (alayhi salatu wa s-salam) was born it seemed fitting that the text of this durood sharif be shared with all that visit this blog so that they may partake of its immense blessings.
“O Allah, I ask by the Light of Face of God, the Great
Which filled pillars of the Throne of God, the Great
and by it are upheld the worlds of God, the Great,
To send blessings upon our Master Muhammad of tremendous worth, and upon the family of the Prophet of God, the Great,
as much as the greatness of the Essence of God, the Great
In every glance and in every breath, as numerous as all that is contained within the Knowledge of God, the Great.
A prayer that is perpetual in the perpetuity of God, the Great
In glorification of your worth, O our Master Muhammad, O you of the a nature most great ,
and send peace upon him and his family just as much,
and join him with me, just as You joined the spirit with the soul,outwardly and inwardly, in wakefulness and in sleep
And make him, O Lord, a soul for my body in every aspect,
In the here and now, before the next world to come, O God the Great.”
