our hearts to Almighty God and seeking success and guidance, to work together in the service of the All-Wise Qur’an.
If a student, every morning he is with me in name and sometimes also in imagination, and he receives a share.
If a brother, he is several times together with me with his particular name and form in my supplications and gains, and he receives a share. Then he is included among all the brothers, and I hand him over to divine mercy so that when I say “my brothers and sisters” in prayer, he is among them. If I do not know them, divine mercy knows them and sees them.
If a friend who performs the obligatory prayers and gives up grievous sins, he is included in my prayers together with all the brothers. My condition is that all three categories include me in their supplications and spiritual gains.
O God! Grant blessings to the one who said: “The believer is to the believer like a well-founded building, with one part strengthening the other,”1 and to his Family and Companions, and grant them peace.
Glory be unto You! We have no knowledge save that which You have taught us; indeed, You are All-Knowing, All-Wise!(2:32)
And they shall say: “Praise be to God, who has guided us to this [felicity]; never could we have found guidance, had it not been for the guidance of God; indeed it was the truth that the Messengers of our Sustainer brought to us!”(7:43)
O God, Who responded to Noah among his people, * And helped Abraham before his enemies, * And returned Joseph to Jacob, * And raised Job’s suffering from him, * And answered the prayer of Zakariya, * And responded to Jonah b. Matta; we implore You through the mystery of those who offered these answered prayers that You preserve me and those who disseminate these treatises and their companions from the evil of satans among jinn and men, and help us in the face of our enemies, and do not leave us to our own devices, and remove our anxieties and their anxieties, and heal the sicknesses of our hearts and of their hearts. Amen. Amen. Amen.
