Al-Madinah Al-Munawwarah, Al-Masjid An-Nabawi As-Sharif, Habibullah SallAllahu alaihi wasallam, Rabi'alAwwal 1432, Scholars

…by the power that is bewildering…

By In

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!

From Necklace of Gems.

…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.

    Assalaamu aleikum sister
    A quick question for you – is there an actual ‘Umrah “season” with a beginning and end? I thought ‘Umrah was possible at all times of the year, although I understand the restrictions around and following Hajj for logistical purposes. I would be grateful for any clarification, jazaki Allahu khayran.

    Wa ‘alaikumus Salam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,
    Dear Umm Mahmoud,
    no there is no Umrah ‘season’ in terms of the Deen, it can be and is performed throughout the year, but the ‘season’ usually refers to when the government opens for issuing visas for those not residing in the Kingdom or from neighbouring Gulf States.
    SubhanAllah, the changes in the pilgrims changes by the hour these early days of pilgrims arriving from overseas. Hundreds of Turkish, Jordanians and Malays are filling Haram and bringing colour to Madinah. It is always a joyful sight watching the flow of nationalities and seeing the delight on the faces of those who are visiting for the first time, Alhumdulillah.
    Wassalamu alaikum
