O Most Merciful of those who are merciful, grant relief to the Muslims. Save and preserve Baitulmaqdis!
On this blessed Friday, in the wake of a recent shocking development, we Muslims who are not in a position to directly influence towards a better and rightful fate of Baitulmaqdis, Jerusalem and Palestine, should seek help from the Prophet salallah alihi wasalam. The selawat/salat as recommended by the honorable Habib Umar bin Hafiz for this sacred month of Rabiul Awal seems very fitting to the catastrophic political move affecting the Holy Mosque. And certainly who is Most Strong upon whom we could rely on issues that are insurmountable? Al Qawi. Al Matin.
Allahumma salli wasalim
'ala 'abdika wa Rasulika
wa akramil awwalina wal aakhirina
Sayyidina Muhammad wa 'ala alihi
wa sahbihi wat tabi'in
wa farrij 'alal Muslimin
Ya Qawi ya Matin
wak fi sharaz zalimin
O Allah, bestow your peace and prayers
upon your slave and messenger
the seal of the Prophets
the noblest of all people from the first to the lastour Master Muhammad and upon his family
and companions and those who follow them.
Relieve the sufferings of the Muslims
O All-Powerful O Strong,
remove the harm of the oppressors.
