اَلدُّعَاءُ الْحُرُوْفُ الْمُقَطَّعَاتْ
AdDu’a ul Hurooful Muqatta’at

Supplication for Disjoined Letters of Quran

Shaykh ‘Abdul Qadir Jilani (Rady Allahu ‘Anhu) combined all this ‘ulum (knowledge) in a grand convocation in just one salaat. We find that in one of the salawaat given in فيوضات ربانيه Fuyudhaat u’r Rabbaniyyah, the Gauth ul A’zam has used the letters in the blessed names Muhammad and Ahmad as well as the Hurooful Muqatta’at, without repeating any of the Hurooful Muqatta’at! Who can beat such a scholarship? As we appreciate this learning that is open, manifest, and clear; we begin to understand the depth of his spiritual knowledge that was a secret and even more hidden.

رَبَّنَا آمَنَّا بِمَا أَنزَلَتْ وَاتَّبَعْنَا الرَّسُولَ فَاكْتُبْنَا مَعَ الشَّاهِدِينَ(3:53)
اَللَّهُمَّ صَلِ وَسَلِّمْ وَأبِرَّ وَأَكْرِمْ وَأَعِزَّ وَعَظِمْ وَالرْحَمْ

عَلَي الْعِزِّ الشَّامِخِ وَالْمَجْدِ الْبَاذِخِ
وَالنُّورِ الطَّامِحِ وَالْحَقِ الْوَاضِحِ

Wa ‘alaa aalihi jawahiri ‘ilmihil ‘azizi
Wa ashaabihi man asbahaddeenu bihim fee hirzin hareez.

I seek refuge in Allah from Satan, the rejected one
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

And there is no power, and nor strength except with Allah, The Most High, The Magnificent.

None is worthy of worship except Allah, The Sovereign Lord, The Clear Truth.

Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, truthful to his promise, trustworthy.

Our Lord! We believe in what You have Revealed and we follow the Messenger, so write us down among those who bear witness (3:53).

O Allah! Bestow blessings, peace and honour; and give nobility, power and greatness; and have mercy on the one who is lofty in power and towering in grandeur, and is the high-aspiring light and the clear truth;

(in the name Muhammad)
the letter “Meem” is for the kingdom,

“Haa” is for mercy,
“Meem” is for knowledge,
and “Daal” is for evidence (proof);

(in the name Ahmad)
the letter “Alif” is for might and power,

“Haa” is for the realm of mercy,

“Meem” is for sovereignty, and
“Daal” is for guidance;

(in the Huroof u’l Muqatta’at)

the letter “Laam” is for hidden kindness,

“Raa” is for hidden compassion,

“Noon” is for perfect benevolence,

Ain” is for care and concern,

“Kaaf” is for sufficiency,

“Yaa” is for headship and becoming master,

“Seen” is for happiness,

“Qaaf” is for nearness,

“Taa” is for the sultanate,

“Haa” is for the tie or bond (of friendship)

and “Saad” is for preservation,

and (blessings and peace) on his family, who are the high ones of his esteemed knowledge, and on his companions through whom religion was well protected.

This is just the opening portion of this momentous salaat which is only about a quarter of it. The remaining three quarters consists mostly of dua (invocation).

This calls for a Fateha. Al-Fateha!
