Fawaid: Azkar for Protection of Infants

Habib Umar recommends reading the following doa to infants each morning and evening:

أُعِيذُكَ بِكَلِمَاتِ اللَّهِ التَّامَّةِ

I protect you by invoking the complete kalimāt (words) of Allāh

مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْطَانٍ وَهَامَّةٍ

from every devil and venomous creature

وَمِنْ كُلِّ عَيْنٍ لامَّةٍ

and from every evil eye

حَصَّنْتُكَ بِالْحَيِّ الْقَيّومِ

I fortify you by invoking Al-Hayy (The Ever Living) and Al-Qayyum (The Self Subsisting) by Whom all things subsist

الَّذِي لَا يَمُوت أَبَدًا

who never ever dies

وَدَفَعْتُ عَنْكَ السُّوء

and I avert from you evil

بِأَلْفِ أَلْفِ لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَةَ إِلَّا بِاللهِ الْعَلِيِّ الْعَظِيمِ

by invoking  a million “lā hawla wa la quwwata illa billāh al-‘Aliy al-‘Azhīm” (tr: there is no turning away (of harm) or power (to confront it) but by Allāh Most High, Most Great)”

Then read the following from the śalihūn (the pious people):

اَللهُمَّ بَارِكْ لَنَا

O Allāh! Give us barakah

فِي أَزْوَاجِنا وَاَهلِنَا وَاَولَادِنَا

in our spouses, family, and children,

وَلا تَضُرُّهُم

and do not harm them,

وَوَفِِّقْنَا وَوَفِِّقْهُم لِطَاعَتِكَ

and direct us and them to the right course of obedience to You,

وَارْزُقْنَا بِرَّهُم

and give us portion of their benevolence.

And finally close with the following doa from the Quran:

رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ

Our Lord! Gift us from our spouses and offsprings coolness to our eyes

وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا

and make us imāms for the muttaqūn (the people of taqwa).

Counsels: Connection with Allah

From the words of Sayyidil Habib Umar bin Hafiz, may Allah preserve him:

Do we not passionately love this God (Al-Ilah)? Do we not yearn for this God? This is your God, O my beloved brothers, what has distracted us from Him?! What has cut us off from Him?! What has come between us and Him? The whole creation fades away upon the mention of the Creator. Your God, O dear friend is better for you!

وَمَنْ أَوْفَىٰ بِعَهْدِهِ مِنَ اللَّهِ

Meaning: And who is truer to his covenant than Allah? (9:111)

 فاستَبشِرُوا بِبَيْعِكُمُ الَّذِى بَايَعْتُم بِهِ وَذَلِكَ هُوَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُ

Meaning: So rejoice in your transaction, which you have contracted. And it is that which is the great attainment. (9:111)

And of their characteristics we read (in the following verse):

التَّائِبُونَ الْعَابِدُونَ الْحَامِدُونَ السَّائِحُونَ الرَّاكِعُونَ السَّاجِدُونَ الْآمِرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَالنَّاهُونَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَالْحَافِظُونَ لِحُدُودِ اللَّهِ وَبَشِّرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ

Meaning: Such believers are] the repentant, the worshippers, the praisers [of Allah ], the travelers [for His cause], those who bow and prostrate [in prayer], those who enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong, and those who observe the limits [set by] Allah . And give good tidings to the believers (9:112)

The tongue of the Chosen One ﷺ recited these verses, upon the hearts and intellects of the companions till they were moved  and filled with delight and declared: “A profitable transaction indeed! We will never revoke nor demand its cancellation!” They fulfilled their promise (May Allah be pleased with them).

May Allah make us see their blessed faces on the day of judgement in the home of honour, may Allah not separate us from them in that home for indeed He is the most Noblest and Merciful of those who show mercy.

*من كلام الحبيب عمر بن حفيظ حفظه الله*
أما نعشق هذا الإله؟ أما نحب هذا الإله؟ إلهكم أحبابي، إلهكم إخواني، ما الذي يلهينا عنه!؟ ما الذي يقطعنا عنه!؟ ما الذي يحول بيننا وبينه؟ اضمحلَّت الأكوان إذا ذُكر المكوِّن، إلهك يا هذا خيرٌ لك – وَمَنْ أَوْفَىٰ بِعَهْدِهِ مِنَ اللَّهِ
النتيجة :
 (فاستَبشِرُوا بِبَيْعِكُمُ الَّذِى بَايَعْتُم بِهِ وَذَلِكَ هُوَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُ)
وصفاتهم نقرأ: التَّائِبُونَ الْعَابِدُونَ الْحَامِدُونَ السَّائِحُونَ الرَّاكِعُونَ السَّاجِدُونَ الْآمِرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَالنَّاهُونَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَالْحَافِظُونَ لِحُدُودِ اللَّهِ وَبَشِّرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ
 تلاها لسانُ المصطفى على قلوب الصحابة وعقول الصحابة، فطربوا، وامتلأوا وأعلنوا: ربح البيع فلا نقيل ولا نستقيل، ووفوا عليهم رضوان ربي، والله يرينا وجوههم يوم القيامة، الله يرينا وجوههم في دار الكرامة، الله لا يفرِّق بيننا وبينهم في تلك الدار إنه أكرم الأكرمين وأرحم الراحمين.
