Hizb ul Bahr

Litany of the Sea

The Mystical Teachings of al-Shadhili from Ibn al-Sabbagh's Durrat al-Asrar wa Tufat al-Abarar

By God, I did not utter it (the litany of the Sea) except as it came from the prophet of God, from whose instruction I learned it. "Guard it; he said to me, "for it contains the greatest name of God"

Excerpt from the Litany of the Sea

Help us, for Thou art the best of helpers.

Open to us the hand of mercy, for Thou art the best of openers. Pardon us, for Thou art the best of pardoners.

Be compassionate toward us, for Thou art the best of those who show compassion.

Sustain us, for Thou art the best of sustainers. Guide us and rescue us from the unjust people.

Send us a gentle breeze, as Thou dost know how to do, and let it blow on us from the storehouses of Thy mercy.

Let it bear us along as it by miraculous intervention, with security and well-being, in religion, worldly affairs, and the hereafter."
