:: Candle Post #10 :: A Most Beautiful Prayer for Eternal Peace ::
Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
Salaam means peace and is one of the attributive names of God. When the word Salaam is used for human beings, it literally means soundness of body and soul which is obtained through special spiritual and intellectual help which is given to the Prophets and faithful followers of God. In the second paragraph of the second part of our Holy Dua, we recite a very special prayer this type of peace. The text and translation of this beautiful prayer is as follows:
'Allahumma ya mowlana antas-salaam, wa minkas-salaam, wa ilaika yarjaus-salaam, haiyyina rabbana bis-salaam, wa adkhilna daras-salaam, tabarakta rabbana wa-ta'laita, ya zal jalali wal ikram'
'O God! O our Master! You are eternal life and everlasting peace by Your essence and attributes. The everlasting peace is from You and it returns to You. O our Sustainer! Grant us the spiritual life of true peace and usher us into the abode of peace. O Glorious and Bounteous One! You are blessed and sublime.'Holy Dua, Second Part
We first have to know that our journey to be eternally alive in the Spirit world begins from the world of humanity (Nasut) and proceeds through the world of spirits (Malakut) and the world of Light (Jabrut) and into the world of Oneness (Lahut). The true peace and the house of peace is at the fourth level, Lahut. As all realities become one reality (i.e., monoreality) at the level of Lahut, this is also the place of our origin. Therefore, during our personal search and journey, we seek to merge into the place of our origin (asal me wasil). As this prayer is for such a lofty destination, we should say it with awe, humility and the greatest respect.
