The Supplication of Intention
al-Qutb al-Kamil Sidi
Mohammed b. Sulayman al-Jazouli (d.
In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, Most Merciful
O Allah! I have made the intention to do the prayer on the Prophet (may
Allah bless him and grant him peace) in obedience to Your command and verifying
Your Prophet, our master Mohammed (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) and
with love for him and yearning for him, and exalting his rank as he merits that.
So accept it from me by Your favour and benevolence and remove the veil of
neglect from my heart and make me one of Your righteous slaves.
O Allah! Increase him in honour above the honour which You have given
him, and with might beyond the might which You have given him, and give him a
light beyond his light from which You created. Elevate his station among the
stations of the Messengers, and his rank among the ranks of the Prophets.
I ask You for Your pleasure and his pleasure, O Lord of the Worlds, and
constant well-being and a death on the Book, the sunna, and the community and
that my shahada is achieved without change or alteration. Forgive me for what I
have committed by your favour, bounty and generosity, O Most Merciful of the
merciful! May Allah bless our master Mohammed, the Seal of the Prophets and Imam
of the Messengers, and his family and all his Companions, and grant them peace.
Peace be upon the Messengers, and praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.
