Limitless Praise due to the One and Only....(part 1)
My praise is part of Your blessing, oh abundant Giver.
Praise is due to You, in number as great as the drops of rain, the grains of sand,
the pebbles, the plants of the earth and the fish of the sea.
Praise is due to You in number as great as the ants, jinn, men, in quantity as
great as the sky, the throne, and the stars like scattered pearls.
In quantity as great as space itself, and the tablet of forms, the footstools, the
moist earth, and the number of all created beings on the day of gathering.
Praise is due to You, oh my Lord, as You deserve it, for I cannot praise
You fittingly to the full extent of time.
Praise is due to You, oh endless Giver of gifts, the One who grants
opening and triumph to the people of Allah.
Praise is due to You with every breath with the body and the heart.
Look kindly on a slave who is perplexed by the command.
If my actions weigh me down, I still have a good opinion of You
that You will mend my broken spirit. [Shaykh Muhammad ibn al-Habib]
