Sayyiduna Abu-Hurayrah رَضِيَ ٱللَّٰهُ عَنْهُ narrates that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ states: “A time will dawn on my Ummah when a single vision of me will be more excellent to the people than all their wealth and off springs. “[That is, people will give preference over their wealth and children to see me for a single glance (Ziyarah).] How true is the statement of the beloved Messenger of Allah عَزَّ وَجَلَّ There is no wealth, gift or honour in this world that is more valuable to a believer than a single vision of the Darling of Creation, the most Beloved of Allah, Sayyiduna Muhammad al-Mustafa ﷺ [Faqir ‘Abdul Hadi al-Qadiri]
All Praises are due for Allah عَزَّ وَجَلَّ, the Lord of the Worlds, Peace and Salutations upon him whom Allah عَزَّ وَجَلَّ has made and sent as the Mercy of the Universe, our Master, Sayyiduna Muhammad &, his Family (Ahle-Bayt) and all his Sahabah (Companions). O Allah عَزَّ وَجَلَّ I begin in Your Name and seek assistance from You and I send Salams and Salutations on Your Beloved صَلَّى ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ and through Your Grace I do good deeds. I have brought Iman on You and Insha-Allah, I will get salvation from the Fire of Hell. I certainly depend on You and hold fast to Your Rope. I seek protection from You on my enemies and plead to You for Your Grace and Mercy. I also plead to You for salvation from the Hell Fire. I knock at Your Door and glorify You for the fulfilment of my desires. O Allah de, I beseech You through Your Divine Glory and Status, grant me my desires and goal. You are my Lord and the best of guardians and protectors. I trust in You in all circumstances.
O my Lord and Creator de! I plead to You in the name of that chosen servant whom You Love and he Loves You. On whom You send Salams and Salutations and also ordered us in Your Sacred Book to do the same. O Allah عَزَّ وَجَلَّ Through the Wasilah (medium) of him whom You directly Spoke to and he, who is Your most beloved, opening for him the Doors of Your Divine Presence and extended wide Your Divine Court. O Allah ye! You invited him to Your Divine Proximity and his heart and soul focused towards You in absolute servitude. He presented himself in Your Divine Court. Hence, You fulfilled his desires and showered him and his Ummah with special bounties and mercies. You have fulfilled Your Mercies and Blessings on his family, companions, his progeny and his entire Ummah. You have blessed them with the verses of Your Divine Command and completed Your bounties on them. Thereafter, You have blessed them with the enormous attributes of good conduct and You did this solely to display their status and excellence.
