The Light Prayer of Mohammed

Oh God, give me light in my heart, 
And light in my touch, 
And light in my hearing, 
And light in my sight, 
And light in my feeling, 
And light in all my body, 
And light before me, 
And light behind me, 

Give me, I pray thee, 
Light on my right hand 
And light on my left hand,
And light above me, 
And light beneath me. 

Oh Lord, increase light within me, 
And give me light and illuminate me. 

These are the lights the Prophet asked for. 
Verify to possess such light means 
To be contemplated by the Light of Lights. 


Abu Falbil al-Makki
