Al-Jazuli’s Invocation at the End of His list of
the Prophet’s (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) Names

O Allah, O our Lord! for the honor of Your elect Prophet and Pleasing Messenger before You, purify our hearts from all the traits that keep us away from Your presence and Your love, and have us pass away following his Way and adhering to his Congregation, longing to meet You, O Possessor of Majesty and Generosity! And the blessings and abundant greetings and peace of Allah be upon our master and liege-lord Muhammad SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam, and upon his Family and Companions… Aameen!

Our Lord! grant us good in this world
and good in the hereafter,
and save us from the chastisement of the fire
