Murabit al-Hajj

In the name of God, Compassionate, Merciful بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم

In the name of God, compassionate & merciful بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم

A poem recited often by Murabit al-Hajj, a teacher of Hamza Yusuf.

O my Lord, when that which there is repelling alights upon me,


And I find myself leaving this adobe


And become Your guest in a dark and lonely place,


Then make the host’s meal for his guest the removal of my wrongs.


A guest is always honored at the hands of a generous host,


And You are the Generous, the Creator, the Originator.


Surely kings, as a way of displaying their magnanimity


Free their servants who have grown old in their service.


And I have grown old in Your service,


So free my soul from the Fire.


~ Murabit al-Hajj, Sidi Muhammad ould Fahfu al-Massumi
