Salawaat Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani (r.a) Part2




As-Salaatu'l Gauthiyyah
This salaat of the Gauth u'l A'zam is so famous that many mashaaikh (spiritual masters) choose to include it in their kutub (books) as part of the awraad and azkaar (regular voluntary invocations). Some of the kutub that contain this salaat are:
Dalaail u'l Khairaat (Proofs of Goodness) of Imam Muhammad bin Sulayman al-Jazuli.
Hizb u'l A'zam (The Great Supplication) of Hadhrat Mulla 'Ali al-Qaari.
Majmu'ah Salawaat u'r Rasul (Compilation of Blessings On The Messenger, Sallallahu 'alaihi wa Sallam) of Hadhrat Khwaja Shaykh Abdur Rahman Chohravi.
Afdhal u's Salawaat (The Best Blessings) of Imam Yusuf ibn Ismail an-Nab'haani.
Awraad u'l Qaadiriyyah (Regular Voluntary Invocations of the Qaadiriyyah), compiled by Muhammad Salim Bawwaab.
Durood Shareef (Noble Blessings) (in Urdu) by Khwaja Nithaar Ahmad.
Fazaaile Durood Shareef (The Benefits of The Noble Blessings) (in Urdu) by al-Allamah Habibu'l Bashar Khairi Rangooni.
Here then is As-Salaatu'l Gauthiyyah, shining as distinctly as the north star.
Allahumma Salli 'alaa Sayyidina Muhammad-inAs-Saabiqi li'lkhalqi nuruhuWa Rahmatullil 'aalameena dhuhuruhu'Adada man madhaa min khalqiqa wa man baqiyaWa man sa'ida minhum wa man shaqiyaSalaatan tastagriqu'l 'adda wa tuhitu bi'l haddiSalaatan laa gaayata lahaa wa laa muntahaa wa lanqidha'aSalaatan daaimatan bidawaamikaWa 'alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallim tasleeman mithla dhaalik
O Allah! Bestow blessings on our master Muhammadwhose light was created first,and whose appearance is a mercy for all the worlds, as many times as the number of Your creations past and yet to comeamong those that are blessed and those that are unfortunate;such blessings that are unlimited and unbounded,countless, endless, never finishing;such blessings as everlasting as You,and on his family and companions,and in the same manner complete salutations as well.
In this salaat, Shaykh 'Abdul Qadir Jilani Rady Allahu 'Anhu declares his aqeeda (belief) loud and clear that before Allah Sub'hanahu wa Ta'ala created anything else, He created Nur-e-Muhammadi, the Nur of Sayyidina Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi wa Sallam. Sub'hanAllah!
