Praise be to Thee, Most Supreme God,
Omnipotent, Omnipresent, All-pervading, the Only Being.
Take us in Thy Parental Arms, raise us from the denseness of the earth,
Thy Beauty do we worship, to Thee do we give willing surrender.
Most Merciful and Compassionate God, the Idealized Lord of the whole humanity,
Thee only do we worship, and towards Thee Alone we aspire.
Open our hearts towards Thy Beauty, illuminate our souls with Divine Light,
O Thou, the Perfection of Love, Harmony and Beauty, All-powerful Creator, Sustainer,
Judge and Forgiver of our shortcomings, Lord God of the East and of the West,
of the worlds above and below,and of the seen and unseen beings:
Pour upon us Thy Love and thy Light,
give sustenance to our bodies, hearts and souls,
use us for the purpose that Thy Wisdom chooseth, and guide us on the path
of Thine Own Goodness.
Draw us closer to Thee every moment of our life,
until in us be reflected Thy Grace, Thy Glory,
Thy Wisdom, Thy Joy and Thy Peace.

III. Pir
Inspirer of my mind, consoler of my heart,
healer of my spirit,
Thy presence lifteth me from earth to heaven,
Thy words flow as the sacred river,
Thy thought riseth as a divine spring,
Thy tender feelings waken sympathy in my heart.
Beloved Teacher, Thy very being is forgiveness.
The clouds of doubt and fear
are scattered by Thy piercing glance.
All ignorance vanishes in Thy illuminating presence.
A new hope is born in my heart
by breathing Thy peaceful atmosphere.
O inspiring Guide through life’s puzzling ways,
in Thee I feel abundance of blessing.

IV. Prayer for the Universel
O Thou, Who art the Maker, Molder, and Builder of the universe,
Build with Thine own hands the Universel,

Other Prayers
Save me, my Lord, from the earthy passions
and the attachments which blind mankind.
Save me, my Lord, from the temptations
of power, fame, and wealth,
which keep man away
from Thy Glorious Vision.
Save me, my Lord, from the souls who are constantly
occupied in hurting and harming their fellow-man, and
who take pleasure in the pain of another.
Save me, my Lord, from the evil eye of envy and jealousy,
which falleth upon Thy bountiful Gifts.
Save me, my Lord, from falling into the hands
of the playful children of earth,
lest they might use me in their games;
they might play with me and then break me in the end,
as children destroy their toys.
Save me, my Lord, from all manner of injury
that cometh from the bitterness of my adversaries and
from the ignorance of my loving friends.

Beloved Lord, Almighty God!
Through the rays of the sun,
Through the waves of the air,
Through the All-pervading Life in space,
Purify and revivify me, and I pray,
Heal my body, heart, and soul.

O Thou, the Sustainer of our bodies, hearts, and souls,
Bless all that we receive in thankfulness.

Three Prayers for the Sufi Healing Ceremony:

Oh Thou, whose nature is mercy and compassion
and who’s Being is all peace.
Father, Creator and Sustainer of our lives,
send on the whole humanity Thy peace
and unite us all in Thy Divine Harmony.


Oh Thou, the Spirit of our souls,
the Master of our minds
and the Controller of our bodies,
we humbly offer ourself to be used as the channels
of Thy Love, Light and Life
that we may be more able to serve Thee and Humanity.


Oh Thou, the Light of all souls,
the Life of all beings,
the Healer of hearts.
All-Sufficient and All-Powerful God,
the Forgiver of our shortcomings,
free us from all pain and suffering
and make us Thy instruments,
that we may in our turn free others from pain and suffering
and that we may impart to them:
Thy Light, Thy Life, Thy Joy and Thy Peace.

Funeral Prayer

O Allah, forgive and have mercy on him (or her). Grant him ease and respite. Make his resting place a noble one, and facilitate his entry. Cleanse him with water, snow and coolness, and purify him of wrongdoings as a white cloth is purified of grime. Grant him an abode finer than his worldly one, and grant him entrance to Paradise and protect him from the chastisement of the grave, and protect him from the chastisement of the Fire.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)
