Light Prayer of Muhammad, the Last Messenger


O God! Grant me Light in my heart,
Light in my grave,
Light in front of me, Light behind me,
Light to my right, Light to my left,
Light above me, Light below me,
Light in my ears, Light in my eyes,
Light on my skin, Light in my hair,
Light within my flesh, Light in my blood,
Light in my bones.

O God! Increase my Light everywhere.

O God! Grant me Light in my heart,
Light on my tongue, Light in my eyes, Light in my ears,
Light to my right, Light to my left,
Light above me, Light below me,
Light in front of me, Light behind me,
and Light within my self; increase my Light.

Its a prayer of Prophet Muhammad, the Last Messenger of God. May God's eternal peace and blessings be upon him. This prayer was loved by Mevlana Rumi as well and it has been recited daily by Mevlevi dervishes, both men and women for centuries.
