May we live simply by the reliance on the power of the Holy Name of Allah. Who Is Complete Love, Overflowing with Compassion and Grace. May our spontaneous praise and gratitude be directed to Allah Alone, the Ultimate Source of the unfolding of all worlds, Allah Who Is Complete Love, Overflowing with Compassion and Grace and Who Is Master of the spiritual discipline of all beings, bringing them all to their time of Truth. Only to You, O Allah, do we offer the full commitment of our lives and from Your Infinite Power alone do we seek the strength that we need. Lead us not along the circuitous path of those who are wondering away from their Source, but lead us along the direct path of the Highest Illumination, the Path of Return traveled by those saints and sages who have been blessed by awakening fully into Your Holy Presence. Ya Allah. Ya Allah. Ya Allah.
