اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ ❁ الْفَاتِحِ لِمَا أُغْلِقَ ❁ وَالْخَاتِمِ لِمَا سَبَقَ ❁ نَاصِرِ الْحَقِّ بِالحَقِّ ❁ وَالْهَادِي إِلَىٰ صِرَاطِكَ الْمُسْتَقِيمِ ❁ وَعَلَىٰ آلِهِ
حَقَّ قَدْرِهِ وَمِقْدَارِهِ الْعَظِيمِ
Allahumma ṣalli ʿalā Sayyidinā Muḥammadini l-Fātiḥi limā ughliq(a), wa l-khātimi limā sabaq(a), nāṣiri l-ḥaqqi bi l-ḥaqq(i), wa l-hādī ilā ṣirāṭika l-mustaqīm(i), wa ʿalā ālihi ḥaqqa qadrihi wa miqdārihi l-ʿazīm.
O Allah, send prayers upon our master Muhammad, the opener of what was closed, and the seal of what had preceded, the helper of the truth by the Truth, and the guide to Your straight path. May Allah send prayers upon his Family according to his greatness and magnificent rank.
Reciting and reading Mawlid is important in the life of Muslims, because praising the Prophet helps to increase one’s appreciation and love for Sayyidina Muhammad (pbuh). After Belief in Allah (swt), the love a Muslim has for Sayyidina Muhammad is the most important factor in his or her spiritual life. If love is missing, one’s faith (Iman) is missing as well. The more we love our Prophet, the more our Iman will increase. The intention behind “Mawlid of the Pride of Creation” is to give all English speakers the ability to celebrate the Mawlid by reciting and singing the poetry of the story of Sayyidna Muhammad's (pbuh) birth, and to also allow those who read and listen to the words to understand something about his greatness and his magnificent reality.
