Episode 2: His Door is Always Open | Prayers of the Pious

Sh. Omar Suleiman examines the importance of persistent du’a, like that of Habiba al Adawiya, and how to get personal with Allah.

[ Day 2 Du’a ]

إِلَهِي غَارَت النُّجُوْمُ، وَنَامَت العُيُوْنُ وَغَلَّقَت المُلُوْكُ أَبْوَابَهَا، وَبَابُكَ مَفْتُوْحٌ، وَخَلا كُلُ حَبِيْبٍ بِحَبِيْبِهِ، وَهَذَا مَقَامِي بَيْنَ يَدَيْكَ

“O Allah, the stars have vanished, the eyes have slept, the kings have locked their doors, and Your door remains open. Every lover has found privacy with their beloved, and here I am standing before You.”
