Rijal al-Ghaib

The manner of Shaikh 'Abd al- Qadir's salutation [salam]
(may Allah sanctify his innermost being)

to the men of the Unseen [rijal al-Ghaib]
(sanctified be their innermost beings).

 

In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the All-Compassionate.
Bismi'llahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Rahim.

 

 Peace be upon you, O men of the Unseen!
 as-salamu 'alai-kum ya rijala 'l-Ghaib. 

 Peace be upon you, O sanctified spirits!
 as-salamu 'alai-kum ya ayyuha 'l-arwahu 'l-mutaqaddasa. 

 O presidents, O noblemen, O overseers, O spiritual deputies!
 ya nuqaba ya nujaba ya ruqaba ya budala

 O mainstays of the earth, four mainstays!  O two leaders! 
 ya awtada 'l-ardi awtadun arba'a: ya imaman:

 O Cardinal Pole!  O matchless individual! O trustees! 
 ya Qutbu ya fardu ya umana':

 

 Provide me with assistance, look on me with favor,
 aghithu-ni bi-ghawthatin wa 'nDuru-ni bi-naDratin

 treat me with compassion, fulfill my wish and my objective, 
 wa 'rhamu-ni wa hassilu muradi wa maqsudi

 and attend to the satisfaction of my needs,
 wa qumu 'ala qada'i hawa'iji

 in the presence of our Prophet Muhammad
 'inda Nabiyyi-na Muhammadin

 (Allah bless him and give him peace).
 (salla 'llahu 'alai-hi wa sallam). 

 

 May Allah (Exalted is He) grant you peace in this world and the Hereafter.
sallama-kumu 'llahu (ta'ala) fi'd-dunya wa 'l-akhira. 

 

 O Allah, bestow blessings on al-Khidr!
 Allahumma salli 'ala 'l-Khidr.
