A Great Blessing at the House of Allah

الحمد لله الذي بكتابه نوّر آنياة أوليائه, وبكلماته قوّي أقدام فرسانه في أرضه, وبحورفه رفع درجاتهم وزاد معرفتهم في عظمته و في حقيقة ذاته. والصلاة والسلام على من بعث شافئا لأمراض المؤمنين ظاهرة وباطنة وبرحمته أخراجهم من ظلمات الكفر إلي نور الإيمان

All praise is due to Allah who, by His Book, illuminated the vessels of His chosen friends, and with it’s words strengthened the steps of His knights on the face of His earth, and with its letters He raised their ranks, and increased them in their cognition of His awesome nature and the reality of his essence. Peace and prayers upon the one sent as a healer for the sicknesses of the believers, the outward and the inward, and, who buy his mercy, were taken from the darkness of disbelief to the light of faith.

أما بعد

فبفضل الله وربحمته لقد أتممت حفظ كتاب الله الكريم اليوم بعد الفجر أمام بيته الكعبة المشرفة. أرجو من الله أن يؤيدني علي هذا الحفط وأن يتقبله مني فإني بما أنزل ربي إليّ من خير فقير

By Allah’s mercy and bounty [alone] I completed my memorization of Allah’s Book today after the morning prayer in front of His house the venerable K’aba. I hope that Allah [swt] will assist me towards this memorization and I ask him to accept it from me as I’m impoverished to any good that He will send me.

وصلى اللهم علي خير من قرأ كتابه وبلغ رسالته وسلم تسليماً كثيراً

And may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon the best one to recite His book, and deliever His message.

وسلام الله عليكم ورحمته وبركاته

May HE reward your family, children and all those who helped you along the way.
