Prayers of the Pious (22): Your Perfect Light
This episode walks us through the beautiful nightly prayer of `Ali Ibn Abi Talib (May Allah be pleased with him) and the beauty of praising Allah.
“Your light was complete, so You guided; all praise is to You. Your forbearance was great, so You forgave; all praise is to You. You held out Your Hand, so You gave; all praise is to You. Our Lord, Your face is the noblest of faces, Your prestige is the greatest prestige, and Your gifts are the best of gifts and the most wonderful. Our Lord, You are obeyed and You show appreciation. You are disobeyed, Our Lord, yet you pardon whomever. You respond to one in hardship and you remove harm. You heal the sick. You deliver from difficulty. You accept repentance. You forgive sins. The word of no one can compensate for your bounties, nor count the praises You deserve.”
