The Prayer of the Opener

February 26, 2023

Salat al-Fatih

O Allah, send Your salutations of peace upon our Master Muhammad – the Opener of what was closed, the Seal of what came before, the Victor of the Truth by the Truth, and the Guide to Your Straight Path – and upon his family, as befitting his immense stature and eminence.

This formula of salawat, called Salat al-Fatih, is attributed to numerous saintly scholars, all of whom report immense virtue in its recitation. Among them: erasure of sins; resolution of worries, difficulties and troubles; acceptance of supplications; realization of hopes and aspirations; ease of provision; and spiritual purification.
