The Dawn of Love

My beloved Muhammad, please and inspire humanity to take refuge in Allah Most High with this potent prayer: "May I lose myself in the Source of Love, Who abides in all hearts as the eternal dawn of love. May I be protected by Allah Most Powerful against those who turn away from their own True Source, and against the darkness and confusion which they generate. May I be protected by Allah Most Powerful against all projections of negative energy, from the casting of harmful spells to the bitter of those who are consumed by envy."

By Lex Hixon, “Heart of the Koran.”

Quran Surah 113:1-5


Bismillaah ar-Rahman ar-Raheem

Qul a’uudhu birabbil falaq
Min sharri ma khalaq
Wa min sharri ghaasiqin idhaa waqab
Wa min sharrin naffaathaati fil ‘uqad
Wa min sharri haasidin idhaa hasad

Translation by Kabir Helminski

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

Say: I seek refuge with the Lord of the Dawn,
from anything harmful in Creation,
from the evil of darkness as it spreads,
from the evil of knotted spells,
from the evil of the envier when he envies.
