The NOBLE   litany

Of Sidi Muhammad  ibn Al-Habib may Allah be pleased with him

PROLOGUE AT THE LITANY

 

May God bless and give peace and blessing to our Lord Mohammed and his people.

In fact, our Sheikh [the one who seeks God, the Gnostic

 “al ‘Arif bi Allah” the one who teaches us, Sheikh Moulay Hashem el Belghiti, may God keep him] allowed me to translate this prayer (Litany) into English, so that our foreign brothers can benefit from his blessing.
With the help of God and His beneficent support, this holy work has been accomplished and God the Most High has made it pure before His eminent face.

أَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا  مُحَمَّدٍ عَبْدِكَ وَ رَسُولِكَ النَّبِيِّ ألأُمِّيِّ  وَ عَلَى  آلِهِ  وَصَحْبِهِ وَ سَلِّم تَسْلِيما عَدَدَ خَلْقِكَ وَرِضَى نَفْسِكَ وَ زِنَةَ عَرْشِكَ وَ مِدَادَ كَلِمَاتِك  ؛ أَعُوذُ بالله السَّمِيعِ  العَلِيمِ مِنَ  الشَّيطانِ الرَّجِيمِ ؛   بِسْمِ الله الرَّحْمَانِ الرَّحِيمِ وَلاَ حَوْلَ وَ لاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِاللَّهِ العَلِيِّ العظِيمِ,

Allâhumma sali ‛alâ  Sayyîdinâ Muhammed(n), ‘abdika wa rasûlika-n-Nabîyyi-l-ummîyyi, wa ‘alâ  âlihi wa sahbihi wa sallim taslîmâ, ‘adada khalqika , wa  ridâ nafsika,  wa  zinata ‘arshika,  wa midâda kalimâtik ; A‘ûdhu bi-Llâhi-s-Samî-i-l-‘Alîm mina-sh–shaytâni-r-rajîm, bismi-Llâhi-r-Rahmâni-r-Rahîm, wa lâ  hawla wa lâ quwwata illâ bi-Llâhi-l-‘Alîyyi-l-‘Azîm.

O Allah, send blessings to our master Muhammad, Your servant and Messenger, the unlettered prophet, and to his people and companions, and greetings upon greetings of peace, (as limitless as) Your creation, Your contentment, the weight of Your Throne, and the ink of Your words. I seek refuge in Allah, the Hearer and Knower from the devil, accursed. In the Name of Allah, Merciful and Compassionate: There is no power nor strength but in Allah, the Sublime and All-Mighty[1]

أللّهُمَ إِنِّي أُقَدِّمُ إِلَيكَ بَينَ يَدَيْ كُلِّ نَفَسٍ وَلَمْحَةٍ و طَرْفَةٍ يَطْرِفُ بِهَا أَهْلُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ أَهْلُ الأَرْضِ؛ وَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ هُوَ فِي عِلْمِكَ كَائِنٌ أَوْ قَدْ كَانْ؛  أُقَدِمُ إِلَيْكَ بَيْنَ يَدَيْ ذَلِكَ كُلِّه.

Allâhumma, innîya  uqaddimu ilayka bayna yaday kulli nafasin wa lamhatin wa tarfatin yatrifu bihâ  ahlu-s-samâwâti wa ahlu-l-ard, wa kulli  shay·in  huwa fî ‘ilmika  kâ·inun  aw  qad  kân,  uqaddimu  ilayka  bayna  yaday dhâlika  kullih :

O Allah, I send forth to You with every breath and every glance and every blink of the eyes of all the inhabitants of heaven and earth, and all that is in Your knowledge, all that is now existing or has ever existed—

I send forth to You with all those things:

لآ إلهَ إِلاّ اللّه ؛  سَيِّدُنا  مُحَمَّد رَسُولُ اللّه ؛   صَلّى اللّهُ عَليهِ  وَسَلَّم ؛  فِي كُلِّ لَمْحَةٍ  وَنَفَسٍ ؛عَدَدَ ما وَسِعَهُ عَلْمُ الله. لآ إلله إلاّ الله وَ اللهُ أَكْبَر(4)

[Lâ ilâha illa-Llâh, Sayyîdunâ  Muhammadun  Rassûlu-Llâh,  Sallâ -Llâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam, fî kulli lamhatin  wa nafasin, ‘adada mâ wasi‘ahu ‘ilmu-l-Lâh.   Lâ ilâha illâ-Llâh,   wa-Llâhu akbar] (4)

There is no god but Allah, our master Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, may Allah send him blessings and salutations of peace, with every look and every breath, as multitudinous as all that Allah’s knowledge encompasses. There is no god but Allah, Allah is greater (repeated 4 times)

اللهُم إِنِّيَ أَسْأَلُكَ بِنُورِ وَجْهِ اللهِ الْعَظِيم ؛ الَّذي مَلأَ أَرْكَانَ  عَرْشِ اللهِ الْعَظِيم وَقَامَتْ بِهِ عَوَالِمُ اللهِ الْعَظِيمِ ؛أنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا وَ مَوْلاَنَا مُحَمَّدٍ ذِي الْقَدْرِ الْعَظِيمِ ؛ وَ عَلَى آَلِ نَبِيِّ الله الْعَظِيمِ ؛بِقَدْرِ عَظَمَةِ ذَاتِ  اللهِ الْعَظِيمِ ؛فِي كُلِّ لَمْحةٍ وَنَفَسٍ ؛  عَدَد مَا فِي عِلْمِ اللهِ الْعَظِيمِ؛ صَلاةً دَائِمَةٍ بِدَوَامِ اللهِ الْعَظِيمِ؛ تَعْظِيمًا لِحَقِّكَ يَا مَوْلانَا يَا مُحَمَّدٍ يا ذَا الْخُلُقِ الْعَظِيمِ؛ وَ سَلِّم عَليهِ وَ عَلَى أَلِـــــهِ مِثْلُ ذَلِكَ ؛ وَاجْمَعْ بَينِي وَبَيْنَهُ كَمَا جَمَعْتَ بَيْنَ الرُّوحِ وَ النَّفْسِ ؛ ظَاهِرا وَ بَاطِنًا ؛ يَقَظَةً وَ مَنَامًا ؛ واجْعَلْهُ يا رب رُوحًا لِذاتِي مِنْ جَمِيعِ الْوُجُوهِ فِي الْدُّنْيا قَبْلَ الاخِرِةِ  يَاعَظِيم.

O Allah, I ask You by the Light of the Face of Allah All-Mighty which fills the pillars of the Throne of Allah All-Mighty, and upon which stand the worlds of Allah All-Mighty, that You send blessings to our master and guardian Muhammad of mighty stature, and to the people of the Prophet of Allah All-Mighty, as vast as the infinitude of the Essence of Allah All-Mighty , at every glance and breath, as numerous as all that is in the knowledge of Allah All-Mighty,

A blessing as eternal as the eternity of Allah All-Mighty, with the veneration that is your right —O our guardian, O Muhammad, O you of mighty nature— and send to him and his people salutations of peace as well , and join me with him as You joined spirit to person, Outwardly and inwardly, (whether I am) awake or asleep, and make him, O Lord, the spirit of my very essence, from every aspect, in this world before the Next, O All-Mighty!

أَسْتَغْفِرُ اللهُ الْعَظِيم الَّذِي لا إلهَ إلاَّ هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ ؛ غَفَّارُ الْذُّنُوبِ ؛ ذَا الْجَلاَلِ وَ الإكْرَام ؛ وَ أَتُوبُ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ جَمِيعِ الْمَعَاصِي كُلِّهَا و الْذُّنُوبِ وَالأثَامِ وَمِنْ كُلِّ ذَنْبٍ أَذْنَبْتُهُ عَمْدًا و خَطَأ ؛ ظَاهِرًا وَبَاطِنًا؛ قَوْلاً وَ فِعْلا؛ فِي جَميعِ حَرَكَاتِي وسَكَنَاتي وَ خَطَرَاتِي وَأَنْفَاسي كُلِّها دائِمًا أَبَدًا سَرْمَداً مِنَ الْذَّنْبِ الَّذِي  أَعْلَمُهُ ؛ وَ مِنَ الْذَّنْبِ الَّذِي لا أعْلَمُهُ,

I seek forgiveness from Allah the All-Mighty, beside Whom there is no god, the Living and Eternal, Forgiver of sins, Majestic and Noble, and I turn to Him in repentence from all disobedience, the greater sins and lesser, from every sin I have committed intentionally and mistakenly, outwardly and inwardly, (in) word and deed, in all my movements and rests, my thoughts and my breaths, all of them, always, forever, eternally from the sin I know and the sin I do not know,

عَدَدَ مَا أَحَاطَ بِهِ الْعِلْمُ وَ أَحْصَاهُ الْكِتَابُ وَ خَطَّهُ الْقَلَمُ وَ عَدَدَ مَا أَوْجَدَتْهُ الْقُدْرَةُ وَ خَصَّصَتْهُ الإِرَادَةُ وَ مِدَادَ كَلِمَاتِ اللهِ؛  كَمَا يَنْبَغي لِجَلالِ وَجْهِ ربِّنَا   وَجَمَالِهِ وَ كَمَالِهِ وَ كَمَا يُحِبُّ رَبُّنَا وَ يَرْضَى,

(I ask forgiveness) as many times as (the creatures) which the (Divine ) Knowledge encompasses, and the Book tallies, and the Pen inscribes , And As (often) as Divine Power brings into being, and (Divine) Will determines, and (is written in) the Ink of Allah’s Words, as is befitting to the Majesty of the Face of our lord, and to His Beauty and Perfection, And as our lord loves and finds pleasing[2]

O Allah, I ask You for genuine Submission (that) comes with active acceptance of Your commandments and prohibitions, and faith (that is) sincere, deep-rooted, firm, protected from all doubtful things and destructive sins–And excellence by which we plunge into the worlds of the Unseen and are cleansed of the varied forms of heedlessness and all the other faults, —and certitude that reveals to us  the domains of the Names and Attributes and carries us to directly perceiving the Lights of the essence revealing itself—and beneficial knowledge by which we will know right action in Your Presence and how to speak with You in prayer.

fill our hearts with the Lights of Direct Knowledge of You that we might perceive Your Immutability flowing through all création, And make us among the people in the circle of Your grace, beloved in Your Présence, (make US) among those deeply-rooted in faith and firmly establishéd in trust and true dependence upon You,

وَحَقَّقْ رَجَاءَنَا بالإِجَابَةِ يَا كَرِيمُ يا وَهَّابُ فِي كُلِّ مَا سَأَلْنَاكَ ؛ وَلاَ تَكِلْنَا يا مَوْلاَنَا فِي جَمِيعِ حَرَكَاتِنَا وَ سَكَنَاتِنَا إِلَى أَحَدٍ سِوَاكَ ؛ فَأِنَّكَ عَوَّدْتَنَا إِحْسَانَكَ مِنْ قَبْلِ سُؤَلِنَا وَنَحْنُ فِي بُطُونِ الأُمَّهَاتِ ؛ وَ رَبَّيْتَنَا بِلَطِيفِ رُبُوبِيَّتِكَ تَرْبِيَةً تَقْصُرُ عَنْ إِدرَاكِهَا الْعُقُولُ الْمُنَوَّرَاتُ.

fulfil our hopes with an answer, O You Who are Infinitely Génerous, O Bestower of gifts, to all that we ask of You, and do not place us, O Lord and Protector—- in all our movements and rests— in the charge of anyone else but You. For truly, You accustomed us to Your Excellence before we (could even) ask for it when we were (still) in our mothers’ wombs, And You nurtured us with the gentleness of Your Nuturing in a way that (even the most) illuminated minds cannot fully grasp.

So we ask You by Your Prophet whom You favored above the rest of the prophets and messengers, and by Your Messenger whose message You made all- inclusive and as a Mercy for all creatures, that You send blessings and salutations of peace upon him and his folk, blessings and peace by which we might attain his love and be among those who follow him in word and deed, in self examination and perception, in manners, virtues, and states.

وَنَسْأَلُكَ يَا مَوْلاَنَا بجَاهِهِ أَنْ تَهَبَ لَنَا عِلْمًا نَافِعًا يَنْتَفِعُ بِهِ كُلُّ سَامِعٍ وَ تَخْشَعُ لَهُ الْقُلُوبُ وَتَقْشَعِرُّ مِنْهُ الْجُلُودُ وَتَجْرِي لَهُ الَمَدَامِعُ؛ إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ القَادِرُ الْمُرِيدُ الْعَالِمُ الْحَيُّ الْوَاسِعُ.

and we ask You, our Guardian Lord, by his honor, to endow us with beneficial knowledge by which those who hear may benefit, and by which hearts may grow humble, and skin may tingle, and tears may flow. You are the One Who is Able, the One Who Wills, the One Who Knows, the LIVING, the All-Encompassing.

O Allah, send blessings and salutations through all Your Perfections and in all Your revelations to our master and guardian Muhammad, First of the Lights overflowing from the seas of the Majesty of the Essence, the one who REALIZES, in both the Inward and Outward domains, the Meanings of the Names and Qualities. he is the first of those to praise and worship through (all) the modes of worship and means of approach, the one who helps all that exists in the Two Worlds of Spirit and form, and (send blessings) to his family and companions, (Blessings) which unveil to us his noble face, both in dream visions and (while) awake.

أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم ﴿ الذين قال لهم الناس إن الناس قد جمعوا لكم فاخشوهم فزادهم إيمان و قالوا ….. ﴾

A‘ûdhu bi-Llâhi mina-sh-shaytâni-r-rajîm ;

[Al-ladhîna qâla  lahumu-n-Nâsu: Inna-n-Nâsa qad  jama‘û lakum   Fa-khshawhum, fa  zâdahum  îmâna wa qâlû :

I take refuge in Allah from the devil accursed:[Those to whompeople say, “The people have gathered against you! Fear them!” And theyare increased in faith and say, :

﴿  حسبنا الله و نعم الوكيل   (10)

Hasbunâ-Llâhu wa ni‘ama-l-Wakîl (10)

“Allah suffices us, themostexcellent one to trust”

﴿ فانقلبوا بنعمة من الله و فضل لم يمسسهم سوء(3)

And they returned with bounty and favor from Allah and no harm touched them.

﴿ واتبعوا رضوان الله والله ذو فضل عظيم ﴾ (3)

Wa’ttaba‘û  ridwâna-Llâh.   Wa-Llâhu dhû  fadlin ‘azîm  (3)

And they followed the good pleasure of Allah. And Allah is the possessor of infinité bounty.

{ وإن يريدوا أن يخدعوك فإن حسبك الله هو الذي أيدك بنصره وبالمؤمنين ۩ وألف بين قلوبهم لو أنفقت ما في الأرض جميعا ما ألفت بين قلوبهم ولكن الله ألف بينهم إنه عزيز حكيم ۩ يا أيها النبي حسبك الله ومن اتبعك من المؤمنين }(3)

And if they would deceive you, Allah is surely sufficient for you. He is the One Who supported you with His victory and with the faithful, and put harmony between their hearts. If you had spent all that was on the earth, you could not put harmony between their hearts, but Allah put harmony between them —Truly, He is Precious and Wise. O Prophet! Allah is sufficient for you and for those of the faithful who follow you.

O Latif, O Latif ! Is not Kindness Yours ?

For You are al-Latif and Your Kindness envelops us

لَطِيفٌ لَطِيفٌ إِنَّنِي مُتَوَسِّلٌ          بِلُطْفِكَ فَالْطُفْ بِي وَقَدْ نَزَلَ اللُّطْفُ

(O) Latif, Latif, truly I am one beseeching You by Your Kindness

to grant me your kindness and Your Kindness descends

بِلُطفِكَ عُدْنَا يا لَطيفُ وَهَا نَحْنُ          دَخَلْنَا فِي وَسْطِ اللُّطْفِ وَانْسَدَلَ اللُّطْفُ

Bi lutfika ‘udhnâ,  yâ Latîfu, wa hâ nahnu,

In Your Kindness we have taken refuge, O Latif, and here we are

Entering the center of Your Kindness, and Kindness comes down

نَجَوْنَا بِلُطْفِ اللّهِ ذِي اللُّطْفِ إِنَّهُ           لَطِيفٌ لَطِيفٌ لُطْفُهُ دَائِمًا لُطْفُ

We are saved by the Kindness of Allah, the One Who possesses Kindness,

truly He is Latif, Latif, and his kindness is always kindness

(O) Hafiz, HAFIZ, surely we are beseeching You by Your Protection,

that You protect us, and Your Protection descends

بِحِفْظِكَ عُذْنَا يَا حَفِيظُ وَ هَا نَحْنُ          دَخَلْنَا فِي وَسْطِ الْحِفْظِ وَانْسَدَل الحِفْظُ

Bi hifzika ‘udnâ yâ hafîzu wa hâ nahnu,

In Your Infinite Protection have we taken refuge, O Hafiz, and here we are:

we have entered the center of Your Protection, and Your Infinite Protection comes down

نَجَوْنَا بِحِفْظِ اللهِ ذَي الحِفْظِ إِنَّهُ           حَفِيظٌ حَفِيظٌ حِفْظُهُ دَائِمًا حِفْظُ

Najawnâ  bi hifzi-Llâhi, dhî-l-hifzi  innahu,

We are saved by Allah’s Infinite Protection, the One Who possesses protection,

truly He is Hafiz, Hafiz, and His Protection is always protection

Bi  jâhi imâmi-l-mursalîna Mohammadin,

fa law lâhu ‘aynu-l-hifzi, mâ nazala-l-hifzu.

By the honor of the Imam of the Messengers, Muhammad,

Were he not the spring of PROTECTION, Protection would not descend

عَلَيهِ صَلاَةُ اللهِ مَاقَالَ مُنْشِدٌ             أَلاَ يَا حَفِيظُ يَا حَفِيظُ لَكَ الْحِفْظُ

‘Alayhi salâtu-Llâhi mâ qâla munchidûn,

Upon him be blessings as those who chant his blessings say:

O Hafiz, O Hafiz, is not Infinite Protection Yours?

لآ إلهَ إِلاّ اللّه وَ اللّهُ أَكْبَرُ ؛ وَ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَ بِحَمْدِهِ وَ أَسْتَغْفِرُ اللَهِ ؛ وَلاَ حَوْلَ وَ لاَ قُوَةَ إِلاَ بِاللهِ ؛  هُوَ  الأَوَّلُ  وَالأَخِرُ والظَّاهِرُ  وَالبَاطِنُ ؛  بِيَدِهِ الخَيْرُ ؛  يُحْيِي وَ يُمِيتُ ؛ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ (10)

[ Lâ ilâha illâ-Llâh, wa-Llâhu akbar,  wa subhâna-Llâhi wa bi hamdihi, wa-staghfiru-Llâh , wa lâ  hawla wa lâ quwwata illâ bi-Llâh,  Huwa-l-Awwalu wa-l-âkhiru wa’zZâhiru , wa-l-Bâtin ,bi Yadihi-l-khayr, Yuhyî  wa Yumît, wa  Huwa ‘alâ   kulli shay·in Qadîr,] ( 10)

There is no god but Allah and Allah is greater. Glory be to Allah and Thanks, and I seek forgiveness from Allah. There is no strength nor power but in Allah. He is the First and the Last, the Outward and the Inward, in His hand is the good. He gives life and gives death, and He, over all things, has power.

وَصَلَّى اللهُ عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا وَ مَوْلاَنَا مُحَمَّدٍ وَ عَلَى آلِهِ وَصَحْبِهِ وَ سَلَّمَ تَسْلِيماً؛ عَدَدَ خَلْقِكَ؛ وَرِضَا نَفْسِكَ؛ وَ زِنَةَ عَرْشِكَ؛ وَمِدَادَ كَلِمَاتِكَ.

And do not give authority over us due to our sins to one who does not fear You and is not merciful towards us.  O Most Merciful of those who are merciful.

O Allah! You are the one who abounds in blessings, defends against malice, relieves tribulation, dispells the darkness; You are the one who is the most just to judge, the One who brings to reckoning the oppressor and is the guardian of the oppressed, the First without beginning, the Last without end, the One Who has a Name with no last name, Relieve us and all Muslims in whatever (hardship) they may be in, by the mystery of Your Name, kept in the treasure (of the unseen), concealed, blessed, pure, purifying, and holy. You, over all things, have Power and are the most reliable to answer prayers.

اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ صَلاَةً كَامِلَةً  وَ سَلِّم  سَلاَمًا تَامًّا عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا  مُحَمَّدٍ الّذِي  تَنْحَلُّ بِهِ  الْعُقَدَ وَ تَنْفَرِجُ بِهِ الْكُرَبُ ؛ وَتُقْضَى بِهِ الْحَوَائِجُ  وَ تُنَالُ بِهِ الْرَّغَائِبُ ؛  وَ حُسْنَ  الْخَوَاتِمُ وَ يُسْتَسْقَى الْغَمَامُ بِوَجْهِهِ الْكَرِيمِ وَ عَلَى آلِهِ وَ صَحْبِهِ فِي كُلِّ لَمْحَةٍ وَ نَفَسٍ بِعَدَدِ كُلِّ مَعْلُومٍ لَّكَ.

O Allah, send a perfect blessing and complété salutation of peace to our master Muhammad, the one through whom the knots are untied and obscurity cleared, and needs fulfilled, (the one) through whom we achieve the desired goals and the best of ends, (the one) by whose noble face the clouds give forth their rain . and (bless) his people and companions, at every moment and every breath, (with blessings) as numerous as all that is known to You.

Glorified be your Lord, Lord of Honor, above all they attribute to Him, and Peace be upon all those sent with the message, and Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds,
