The Guide to Blessings and the Advent of Light in Blessing the Chosen Prophet
The Supplication of Intention
In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, Most Merciful
O Allah! I have made the intention to do the prayer on the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, in obedience to Your command and verifying Your Prophet, our master Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and with love for him and yearning for him, and exalting his rank as he merits that. So accept it from me by Your favour and benevolence and remove the veil of neglect from my heart and make me one of Your righteous slaves.
O Allah! Increase him in honour above the honour which You have given him, and with might beyond the might which You have given him, and give him a light beyond his light from which You created. Elevate his station among the stations of the Messengers, and his rank among the ranks of the Prophets.
I ask You for Your pleasure and his pleasure, O Lord of the Worlds, and constant well-being and a death on the Book, the sunna, and the community and that my shahada is achieved without change or alteration. Forgive me for what I have committed by your favour, bounty and generosity, O Most Merciful of the merciful! May Allah bless our master Muhammad, the Seal of the Prophets and Imam of the Messengers, and his family and all his Companions, and grant them peace. Peace be upon the Messengers, and praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.
