O Allah, O You of Whom it is true
that there are no rain drops in the skies,
and no seeds in the earth,
and no shifts in the blowing wind,
and no feelings in people’s hearts,
and no movement in their limbs,
and no glances in their eyes,
unless they are bearing witness to You,
and pointing the way to You,
and acknowledging Your Lordship,
and bewildered by Your power.
I therefore beseech You, O Allah,
by the power that is bewildering
to those in the heavens and on the earth,
that You may bless Muhammad and his family,
and his Companions and his progeny.
Shaikh Abu’l-Hasan al-Jawsaqi, a servant and follower of Shaikh ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani Rahmatullahi alaihumaa, offered this Du’a and said: “If someone has a need, let him recite this supplication, then let him appeal for what he wishes to receive, for it is one of those supplications that are sure to be answered. He would often quote these poetic verses:
My heart has blinked at You,
that it may see what my eye cannot see,
And that You may instill in my inner being
the sweetness of begging and yearning.
You wish to put me through some test,
for You know what is required of me.
I have no interest in anything but You,
so test me however You may wish!

…Insha’Allah, by the power that is bewildering, may all pilgrims journeying to these sacred lands this Umrah season, taste the sweetness of begging and yearning and be ardent in their salutations to our Liegelord Al-Mustafa SallAllahu alaihi wasallam, Ameen.
All good is from Allah Ta’ala whereas mistakes are from this humble speck. May Allah Ta’ala Bless all readers, bringing you all closer to Him and His Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam. May He accept our humble efforts and grant us the capacity to be good and do good. Ameen.
