Supplication of the One God

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

The Messenger of God (pbuh) once heard a man supplicating: ‘O God, I supplicate You bearing witness that You are indeed God, that there is no deity but You, the One, the Self-Sustaining; who does not beget nor was begotten; who has no equal.’

Upon which, the Prophet (pbuh) said, ‘ By the One in whose hand is my soul, he has supplicated God by His supreme name. When God is called upon by it, He answers; When asked for something through it, He gives.’

– A Hadith taken from Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya’s book – The Invocation Of God.

    Salaam Dear Brothers and Sisters:
    Thank you for the kind comments. Indeed, the Grace of graciousness is beautifully expressed in this supplication. Even reading it made me tremble with awe in thought of the Most Merciful and bestower of all Grace.
