Inayati Order UK
Last night’s bombing in Manchester UK is a reminder that in tragedy and crisis we may choose to flood our hearts and the heart of humanity with love, compassion and the vision of unity.
We ask friends all over the world to pray for those killed and injured in Manchester; we ask friends to extend the sphere of our hearts and pray for those caught in suffering all over the world, of all nations, peoples, religions and gender – that this one tragedy may lead us towards unity.
We invite you to pray for healing, peace and unity. This ritual that we offer below is one that you may choose:
Ya Rahman – Ya Rahim 11 x invoking divine Compassion and divine Mercy.
Name the people, place, nature or land of each part of our world which is in crisis and suffering and for which we feel called to offer prayers.
After each is given, pray Ya Rahman – Ya Rahim 3 x
After the offering of names is complete for this session of prayer, continue with:
Ya Jami – Ya Salam 11x invoking divine Unity and divine Peace
Complete the ritual with recitation of Aman 33 x invoking divine Sanctuary, divine Protection.
‘What is required today is this: that some souls, unselfish, strong, confident of the truth of their ideals, should join hands in serving humanity.’
‘Humanity is one body, the whole of life being one in its source and in its goal’.
