Ya Walī, Ya Hafiz, Ya Nasir

O Friend and Protector,
Preserver of that which is Most Precious,
the Secret within these hearts
that You have written
on the Tablet
preserved and protected
for all Eternity,
help us to keep our connection
with the Source,
of Our Sustenance,
of that Light
that allows us to see,
to read and know
what You have written,
Ya Nasir.
O Beloved Friend,
in Your Radiance
we rest
and find tranquility.

~ Camille A. Helminski “Love’ville” 2016

Ya Walī, O Friend and Protector
Ya Hafiz, O Preserver and Protector
Ya Nasir, O Helper
Ya Samad, O Eternal, Satisfier of All Need
Ya Nur, O You Who Are Light

All the while God encompasses them without their being aware of it. Nay, but this is a sublime discourse,
inscribed on an imperishable tablet (lawh mafuz).

You alone do we worship and You alone do we ask for help. Guide us on the straight path.

God is enough for a Protector, and God is enough for a Helper.

O you who have come to faith! Be patient, and persevere in patience,
and keep your connection, and remain conscious of God,
so that you might attain felicity.

Truly, in the remembrance of God hearts find rest.
