الإتصال بالسند الذي تلى به إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وصحبه وسلم وأن يزداد بذلك أجرهم وثوابهم

أن يهذب نفسه ويطهرها بسر الآيات الكريمة وأنوارها

Intentions for Attending a Gathering of Khayr

Yemen-Daurah-332Intentions for Attending a Gathering of Khayr [1] from Habib Sa’ad Al-Aydarus’ Book of Intentions

  1. To conserve one’s time
  2. To follow the command of the Prophet ﷺ
  3. So that Allah will not miss you where He has commanded you to be
  4. To draw closer to Allah, the Majestic
  5. To purify your inward
  6. To increase the number [attending such gatherings]
  7. To be in a good state if death were to descend upon you
  8. To be attached to the people of virtue
  9. To defeat Satan, the nafs, passions and all desires for base things
  10. To imitate the angels
  11. To raise one’s degree with Allah, Most High

[1] The word “khayr” in Arabic means good or goodness. A majlis of khayr is a gathering of goodness established upon, and in accordance with, the Qur’an and the Sunnah and in which sacred ‘ilm is taught, studied, practised and encouraged or the name of Allah is remembered.

نيات حضور مجلس الخير

   نويت حفظ الوقت وامتثال أمر الحبيب صلى الله عليه وسلم ، وألا يفقدني الله حيث أمرني ، والتقرب إلى الله عزوجل وتصفية باطنه ، وتكثير سوادهم وأن أكون على حال طيبة إذا نزل عليّ الموت ، والارتباط بأهل الخير والتغلب على الشيطان والنفس والهوس والدنيه ، ومشابهة الملائكة ، ورفع درجته عند الله تعالى

Intentions for Visiting the Shuyukh

Sayyidil Habib - GazeIntentions for Visiting the Shuyukh taken from Habib Sa’ad Al-Aydarus’ Book of Intentions

  1. To benefit from them in both religious and worldly matters
  1. To fulfil the following command of the Prophet:

” جالسوا الكبراء “

“Be in the company of the great ones.”

  1. To attain from them (i.e. from being in their presence) the mercy that descends upon them
  1. To obtain a gaze i.e. nazrah (نظرة) from them by which Allah will rectify your state and all of your affairs [1]
  1. Intend to be in the gathering of the righteous
  1. Intend that Allah may purify your heart
  1. Intend that Allah will bring you together (with the shaykh) inwardly, as He has brought you together outwardly

[1] The gaze (نظرة) of the ulama’, who are established in ilm and men who have arrived at the hallowed precincts, is a beneficial theriac. If one of them gazes at a truthful man he can, by the light of his inner eye, discover the aptitude and competence of the sincere man to receive Allah’s special gifts. There then comes into his heart love for the genuine aspirant and via the inner eye he gazes at him with the gaze of love. Such [elite] are amongst the soldiers of Allah, the Exalted, and they thus confer, through their gaze, sublime states [to people] and raise their stations. What does a rejecter reject of Allah’s Power? Indeed Allah, Transcendent and Exalted be He, in the same way as He has given some snakes (known as al-Silanah) [the power to destroy man by a mere look], He has also given the power of the gaze to some of His elect servants such that when they gaze at a sincere seeker, they accord him a state and a life [an eternal life of the heart, is what is meant here says Al-Habib Abd ar-Rahman bin Mustafa al-Aydarus]. And it was the custom of our Shaykh, may Allah bestow mercy upon him, to walk round Masjid al-Khif at Mina looking at the faces of the people. When he was asked about this he would say, ‘Allah has indeed servants who when they gaze at a person, it accords him bliss (sa’adah).

نيات زيارة الشيوخ

  نويت الاستفادة منه في دينه ودنياه ، وامتثال أمر الحبيب صلى الله عليه وسلم في قوله : ” جالسوا الكبراء ” ، وأن ينال من الرحمة التي تنزل عليهم ، وأن ينال نظره منه يصلح الله له حاله كله ، وينوي أن يجالس الصالحين ، وأن يطهر الله قلبه ، وأن يربط مابينه في الباطن كما ربطه في الظاهر

Masjid Nabawi DomeIntentions for Invoking the Salawat and Salam upon the Prophet ﷺ taken from Habib Sa’ad Al-Aydarus’ Book of Intentions, which reproduced Imam Al-Haddad’s Niyyat of Invoking Salawat and Salam upon the Prophet ﷺ

Allahumma, I intend by my invocation of Salawat and Salam upon the Prophet ﷺ to conform with Your command, to comply with Your book, and to follow the Sunnah of Your Prophet Muhammad ﷺ out of love for him ﷺ, longing for him ﷺ and in exaltation of what is due to him ﷺ; to honour him ﷺ because he ﷺ is deserving of it; so accept this from me, by Your Favour and Kindness, and remove the veil of heedlessness from my Heart and make me from amongst Your righteous servants.

Allahumma, increase him ﷺ in honour in addition to the honour You have already conferred upon him ﷺ, and increase him ﷺ in glory to supplement the glory You have already given to him ﷺ, and elevate his ﷺ rank among the ranks of the Messengers, and his ﷺ degree among the degrees of the Prophets.

I ask You for Your Pleasure and for Paradise, O Lord of the worlds; and for contentment in the religion, in this world, and in the hereafter; and to die whilst living in accordance with the Book, the Sunnah and the Jamà’ah, and by the testimony of faith, without changing or altering it.

And forgive me for what I have committed, by Your Favour and Kindness towards me. Indeed, You are the Forgiver and the Merciful. And bestow Salawat and Salam upon our master Muhammad ﷺ and his Family and Companions and give them peace.

اللهم إني نويت بالصلاة على النبي امتثالاً لأمرك ، وتصديقاً لكتابك واتباعاً لسنة نبيك محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم ومحبة فيه وشوقاً وتعظيماً لحقه ، وشرفاً له وكونه أهلاً لذلك فأقبلها مني بفضلك وإحسانك وأزل حجاب الغفلة عن قلبي ،واجعلني من عبادك الصالحين

اللهم زده شرفاً على شرفه الذي أوليته وعزاً على عزه الذي أعطيته ، وأعلي مقامه في مقامات المرسلين ودرجته في درجات النبيين ، أسألك رضاك والجنة يارب العالمين مع العافية في الدين والدنيا والآخرة ، والموت على الكتاب والسنة والجماعة وكلمة الشهادة من غير تبديل وتغيير

واغفر لي ماارتكبته بفضلك وإحسانك عليّ إنك أنت التواب الرحيم وصلى الله على سيدنا محمد وآله وصحبه وسلم

Intentions for Visiting Brothers


The late, great Imam of Masjid as-Saggaf, Habib Muhammad bin Alawi Al-Aydarus (also known more fondly as Habib Sa’ad), mentions in his book, The Book of Intentions, the following seven intentions to place in one’s heart when visiting a brother or sister (in Islam):

  1. To intend to visit someone for his or her sanctity, eminence and status e.g. as an alim, as an elderly figure.

It is narrated that two brothers (in Islam) met and one said to the other, “Where have you come from?” He replied, “I have returned from the Haj and from making ziarah of the Prophet ﷺ. And you? Where have you come from?” The first brother answered, “From visiting a brother, to greet him for the sake of Allah.” The second brother (who made Haj) said to the other, “Would you give me half of your rewards and I’ll give you half of mine?” He (the one who visited a brother in Islam for the sake of Allah) lowered his head for a while then they both heard a hatif (disembodied voice) saying, “Visiting a brother in Allah is better than 100 Hajs except the Haj of Islam (the Obligatory Haj).”

  1. To intend to bring affection and harmony to him or her.

Allah says in Surah Al-Anfal:

وَأَلَّفَ بَيۡنَ قُلُوبِہِمۡ‌ۚ لَوۡ أَنفَقۡتَ مَا فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ جَمِيعً۬ا مَّآ أَلَّفۡتَ بَيۡنَ قُلُوبِهِمۡ وَلَـٰڪِنَّ ٱللَّهَ أَلَّفَ بَيۡنَہُمۡ‌ۚ إِنَّهُ ۥ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ۬

Meaning: And He has united their (i.e. believers’) hearts. If you had spent all that is in the earth, you could not have united their hearts, but Allâh has united them. Certainly He is All-Mighty, All-Wise. (8: 63)

Ibnu Mas’ud said, “This verse was revealed about those who love each other for the sake of Allah.” It is said that four things affirm your love for your brother: visiting one another, giving salams, shaking hands [1] and giving gifts.

  1. To intend to fulfill the sunnah of our Messenger ﷺ.

The Prophet ﷺ said, “O Abu Razin, aren’t you aware that when a man leaves his house to visit his brother for Allah’s sake, he is followed by 70,000 malaikah who make doa for him saying, “O our Lord, he has joined ties so join him with you!”?”

  1. To intend to have one’s sins expiated by fulfilling the hadith of the Messenger ﷺ, “When a brother (in Islam) visits his brother (in Islam) for the sake of Allah, and they shake hands and they smile at each other, their sins will fall off from them.”
  2. To intend to earn his or her blessings and gaze. Al-Fudhayl said, “Looking upon a brother in Allah in yearning and love is an act of worship.”
  3. To intend to receive his or her advice and doa (especially if the person you are visiting is a pious, God-conscious Muslim) [2].
  4. To intend to receive the love of Allah.

It is mentioned in a hadith that an angel (who came in the form of a man) once asked a man, “Where are you going?” and the man answered “I seek a brother of mine in this village.” So the angel asked him, “Is there any kinship between you or are you returning a favour?” and the man replied, “No. I am visiting him for the sake of Allah.” So the angel said to the man, “I am a Messenger from Allah and I am here to convey to you that He loves you as you have loved your brother for His sake.”

[1] IMPORTANT: Observe the Islamic rules pertaining to gender relations.
[2] In putting this to practice, one may consider saying, “O Ustaz/Uncle/Aunt so-and-so, please make doa for me.” OR “O Ustaz/Uncle/Aunt so-and-so, recite Al-Fatihah for me.” during one’s visit.
