I ask Allah forgiveness (With that the Imam carries on with):


Allazeei la ilaha illa Huwal- Hayyu-l Qayyoomu wa athoobu ilayhi. Innahu Huwa-Tawwabur Raheem. Ya musabbibal asbaab, ‘Ya Mufatthihal abwaab, Ya Muqallibal quloobi wal absaar, Ya Daleelal Mutkhayyireen, Ya Ghiyasa-l Mustaghaeeseen, Ya Hayyu, Ya Qayyoom, Ya zal Jalali wal ikram.

There is no God except Allah. He is the sustainer and ever living, I ask for forgiveness from Him and He is most forgiving and Merciful. Oh! Originator of causes, Turner of heart and perception, Guide of the perplexed and the Helper of the seeker of help. The Mighty and the Most Gracious, I entrust my affairs to Almighty Allah: verily Allah is watchful over his slaves.

The Most Beneficent and the Most Merciful

Master of the Day of Judgment

Fa izaa faragh'ata fansab, wa ila rabbika farghab.


In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Have We not caused thy bosom to dilate,

And eased thee of the burden

But lo! With hardship Goes ease,

Lo! With hardship Goes ease;

So when thou art relieved, still toil

And strive to please thy Lord.

May Allah shower upon them His Mercy and Virtues and brighten up their graves. May these blessed souls pray for the well-being of those participating in this Zikr Majlis in their spiritual and material life. Praise be to Allah


(All recite Sura Fatiha quietly).

Closing up the Zikr Majlis: All participants exchange salaams expressing love (muhabba) and fraternity.


NOTE: Moulana Sheikh Nazim says that because of the bad times ahead it is very good to recite Salatan Tunjina also before the conclusion of the zikr.


Salatan Tunjina


Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina Muhammadin salatan tunjina biha min jami al ahwali wal afat wa taqdi lana biha jami‘a al hajjat wa tutahiruna biha min jami‘a as-sayyiat wa tarfauna biha ‘indaka ala darajat wa tubalighuna biha aqsa al ghayat min jami‘a al khayrat fil hayati wa bad al mamaat wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallim tasliman kazira


O Allah pray on our Master Muhammad a prayer by means of which we will be saved from every awe-inspiring harmful thing, and that will take care of all of our needs, and purify us by means of it from all of our ugly qualities and characteristics and raise us and purify us by means of it from all of our ugly qualities and characteristics and raise us up by means of it in Your Presence to the highest of degrees, and cause us to reach by means of it the extremes of all goodness in our life and after our death and this prayer be upon his family and his companions and may he be given safety and much salaam.
