Salawat of Essence by Ibn Arabi : Explained by Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani.


اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلى الذّاتِ الْمُطَلْسَمِ وَاْلغَيْبِ الْمُطَمْطَمِ لاَهُوتِ الْجَمَالِ َناَسُوتِ اْلوِصَالِ طَلْعَةِ اْلحَّقِّ كنزِ عَينِ اِنْسَانِ اْلأزَلِ فىِ نَشْرِ مَنْ لَمْ يَزَلْ فىِ قَابَ نَاسُوتِ اْلوِصَالِ اْلاَقْرَبِ اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ بِهِ مِنْهُ فِيهِ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ.

Allahumma salli `alaa 'dh-dhaat al-mutalsam wa 'l-ghayb al-mutamtam laahoot al-jamaal naasoot al-wisaal tal`ati 'l-haqq ka-sawbi insaan al-azal fee nashri man lam yazal fee qaabi naasoot al-wisaal al-aqrab. Allahumma salli bihi minhu feehi `alayhi wa sallim.

Who knows Arabic knows how profound this salaat is. Allahumma salli `alaa 'dh-dhaat al-mutalsam wa 'l-ghayb al-mutamtami laahooti 'l-jamaal. Here it expresses that there is no one more beautiful than Prophet ﷺ , he is the beauty of this universe and he is the beauty of heavens and here Allah sends His prayers and praises on that Essence that no one knows about, for it is hidden and you cannot penetrate its realities without knowing the secret codes needed to open it and decode them. For example, if you have a rough diamond it is a large rock which you break down and break down until you reach the gem, then you cut it nicely and then after that you have to polish it. He then mentions the Dhaat al-Mutalsam, that essence that is covered and which no one can open, and al-Ghayb al-Mutamtam, the unseen ghayb that no one can reach or discuss. It then mentions al-Laahoot al-Jamaal. "Laahoot" means that which belongs to earth and "Naasoot" is the connection from earth to heavens, the appearance of Truth, which is Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ , where Allah dressed him with the dresses of Justice, Beauty and ...of human beings.

Insan al-azal fee maa nashari maa lam yazal, "the human being that is living from azal to abad who will open from the secrets of heavenly Names and Attributes." Fee qaabi naasoot al- wisaal al-aqrab. He opens only to those who reached the connection between earthly life and heavenly life, he opened to them as they are moving forward to heavens. Yaa Allah salli bihi. Salli bihi is different than salli `alayh. It means make the salaat through him. Salli bihi minhu. Make the salaat from him to him from the Prophet ﷺ to the Prophet ﷺ and in him, wa sallim, and give greetings of peace. Amin.

- Shaykh Hisham Kabbani R.A

اللَّهُمَّ صَل عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ ۞ الفَاتِحِ لِمَا أُغْلِقَ ۞ وَالخَاتِمِ لِمَا سَبَقَ ۞ نَاصِرِ الحَقِّ بِالحَقِّ ۞ وَالهَادِي إِلَى صِرَاطِكَ المُسْتَقِيمِ ۞ وَعَلَى آلِهِ حَقَّ قَدْرِهِ وَمِقْدَارِهِ العَظِيمِ ۩
