Supplicatory Prayer (Based on Imam al-Haddad’s Poem)

No Comments

Salam

Please find below a supplicatory prayer I wrote a short time back based primarily (but not wholly) on a well known poem of Imam al-Haddad (see image above). Recitors will find that they should be able to sing this according to the tune of the Arabic version.

O Lord we have admitted
to sins we have committed
to You we have submitted
our hopes in Your Mercy

O Lord grant us repentance
coupled with Your acceptance
and free us from dependence
From all of the creation

O Lord grant us a veiling
which will protect us failing
a day of Your prevailing
upon all Your deniers

O Lord grant us admission
to blessings You have given
of health and wealth provision
raining upon your servants

O Lord protect our household
the elderly and young folk
for ever more our stronghold
and in Paradise unite us

O Lord grant Your protection
And ward off the affliction
With ease from all restriction
The homes of the believers

O Lord bestow Your favours
upon our friends and neighbours
and everyone who labours
to serve your creation

O Lord Your peace and blessings
Until the leaves and birds sing
Upon the light that guides us
Muhammad and companions
