REVIVING THE HEART - YA HAYYU YA QAYYUM, LA ILAHA ILLA ANTA



REVIVING THE HEART - YA HAYYU YA QAYYUM, LA ILAHA ILLA ANTA

DHIKR or THIKR (sometimes written ZIKR) pronounced as TH in English THE.
(ZIKR is remembrance of Allah)
 "A saying of Ahmad b. Taymiyya which his student Muhammad b. al-Qayyim (Allah have mercy on both of them) relates in two of his books: Madarij al-Salikin and Tariq al-Hijratayn, in which he says that reciting Ya Hayyu Ya Qayyum, la ilaha illa antevery day 40 times after praying the Sunnah of Fajr and before the Fardrevives the heart” and “has an astonishing effect respectively."

N.B. Please, FORGET about (or do not pay too much attention to) the number of times indicated above (40) or the time of the obligatory morning act of worship - Salaat ul Fajr - or the time indicated after the Sunnah of Fajr or before the fard (obligatory part of the Salaat).  It must only be understood that we can repeat the 'formula' as many times as necessary for us to feel comfortable as long as we feel it sink right inside our heart and soul and making us a lot stronger in both faith and action.  
And, there can be no specific time of the day or night to make that remembrance of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala called DHIKR in Arabic.  It can be made at all time and in all circumstances as long as we feel comfortable with it.  As a matter of fact, there is no magic in this formula itself although the 'magic' can be felt by all true Muslims and humans searching for the Truth and the Supreme Being because anybody can remember Allah or GOD (or the Gods like in Vedantism or Hinduism and even Buddha) in whatever language they know and understand and the effect will always be the same as long as they are sincere in both faith (all humans have a faith!) and action and have pure hearts, even by people who  ignorantly claim that they do not believe in God or in any Gods.   
The power of autosuggestion is real whether we believe in God or not and whether there is GOD or not.  Science is proving more and more that our universe did not come about by accident and has a Supreme Intelligence behind its creation.  GOD IS A REALITY!

Having said that the Classical Qur'aanic Arabic is indeed "MAGIC" and when a Muslim does not know Arabic, he misses out most of what is really good and sublime in Islam.
 I learned this DHIKR for the first time from a talk by our most beloved Sheikh Hamza Yusuf Mark Hanson, and I have never stopped reciting it day and night and everywhere.
 YA HAYYU YA QAYYUM = O YOU THE EVER LIVING, THE SELF EXISTING ONE

"The Living (al-Hayy) is the One who alone has absolute, independent life. The Sustaining (al-Qayyum) is the One who alone needs none to sustain Him, and who sustains all things at all times, in every way." 

 LA ILAHA ILLA ANT THERE IS NO GOD EXCEPT YOU ALLAH

To enter into direct Communion with Allah, Surah Al-Faatihah.
  

 

Surah Al-Fatiha, Al-Ikhlas, Al-Falaq, An-Nas, Ayat Al-Kursi & Du'a

Marwa G. Ali
Published on 2 Dec 2012
The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: Recite Surah Al-Ikhlas and the two last Surahs of the Qur'an (Al-Falaq and An-Nas), in the morning and evening three times, and it will suffice you for everything . [Abu Dawood and al-Tirmizi]

Abu Umaamah (RA) narrated that:
The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:
"Whoever reads "Ayatul-Kursi" [Qur'an 2:255], after every obligatory prayer, nothing prevents him from entering Paradise except death (i.e. that he is still alive)."
(An-Nasaa'ee, Ibn Hibbaan -- Sahih)

Duaa translated to English:

O Allah! we testify that none has the right to be worshipped except You

The One and Only Deity and Lord,

The Unequalled, The Eternal.

He who begets not, nor is He begotten,

and there is none like unto Him.

There is no god except Allah, The Magnificent, The Most Serene.

There is no god except Allah, the Lord of the Great Throne.

There is no god except Allah, the Lord of the heavens and the earth, the Lord of the Great Throne.

O Ever-Living One, O Self-Existing One,

O Lord of Majesty and Generosity

O Incomparable Creator of the Heavens and the Earth,

O Allah! You hear us and You see us.

and you are aware of what we do secretly and openly.

O our Lord, our protector, and our Master,

Honoured is he who is in Your Protection, Your Praise-worthiness is Most Exalted
(Grand be Your praise) and Sacred be Your names,

and there is no god but You.

O Fulfiller/answerer of prayers,

O Fulfiller of wishes,

O our Saviour in times of grief,

O Allah! we beseech You by Your beautiful Names and magnificent Attributes,

O Allah! we beseech you by the Greatest of Your names,

by which you respond to the one who calls upon You,

and grant them what they ask for.

O Allah! Let our bodies be prohibited to the Fire (of hell).

O Allah! save us from the fire.

O Allah! Let our bodies be prohibited to the Fire

with Your mercy, O Most Merciful!

O Allah! We ask You for Paradise and what brings us close to it from speech or deeds,

and we seek refuge with You from the Fire and what brings us
close to it from speech or deeds

with Your mercy, Your benevolence, Your generosity, and Your bounty.

O Openhanded one, O Most Generous!

O Allah! O hearer of prayers!

O possessor of grace and bounty!

O Allah! let not any of our sins go unforgiven, nor an illness unhealed, or a handicapped without relief.

We ask You to guide those who are confused and have
gone astray.

O Allah! make marrige easy for those who are unmarried.

O Allah, have mercy on our dead.

O Allah by Your mercy! Make things easy for us and help
us do anything that pleases You and is good for us in
this world and the hereafter, O the most Merciful.

O Turner of the Hearts, keep our Hearts firm on Your Religion,
O openhanded one, O Most generous.

Oh Allah, you are the best forgiver, beneficent and merciful.
You love forgiveness so forgive us.

O Allah, accept our fasting, and accept our worship (prayers).

O Allah, forgive our shortcomings, by your mercy, O Most Merciful!

O Lord of Jibreel, Mikaeel and Israfeel.

O Creator of the heavens and the earth,
Knower of the unseen and the seen.

You are the Judge of the matters in which Your servants differ.

Guide us with regard to disputed matters of Truth by Your permission, for You guide whomever You will to the Straight Path.

Oh Allah, we are Your servants, the sons of Your servants,
the sons of Your maid-servants,

You hold us by our forelocks. Your Decree is what controls us,
and Your Commands to us are just.

We beseech You by every one of Your Names, those which You use to refer to Yourself, or have revealed in Your Book,

or have taught to any one of Your creation, or have chosen to keep hidden with You in the Unseen,

to make the Noble Qur’an the springtime of our hearts, the light within our chests, and the vanishing of our affliction and our sorrow.
And admit us to Your gardens, the gardens of bliss (Paradise).

O Allah, make it an argument for us (The Qur'an) on the Day of judgement, by your mercy, O Most Merciful!

O Allah! We ask You everything that is good, in this world and the Hereafter, whether we Know it or not;

and we seek your protection from everything that is bad, in this world and the Hereafter, whether we Know it or not.
