The prayer ”Salat” by Harzrat Inayat Khan

Most gracious Lord, Master, Messiah and
Saviour of humanity,
we greet Thee in all humility.
Thou art the First cause and the last effect,
the Divine Light and the Spirit of Guidance,
Alpha and Omega.

Thy Light is in all forms, Thy love in all beings,
in a loving mother, in a kind father,
in an innocent child, in a helpful friend,
and in an inspiring teacher.

Allow us to recognize Thee in all Thy holy names and forms,
as Rama, as Krishna, as Shiva, as Buddha.
Let us know Thee as Abraham, as Salomon,
as Zarathurstra, as Moses, as Jesus, as Mohammed
and in many other names and formes;
known and unknown to the world.

We adore Thy past, Thy presence deeply enlightens
our being and we look for Thy bessing in he future.
O Messenger, Christ, Nabi, the Rasoul of God!

Thou whose heart constantly reaches upward;
Thou comest on earth with a message as a dove from above
when Dharma decayeth, and speakest the word
which is put into Thy mouth
as the light filleth the crescent moon.

May the star of the divine light shining in Thy heart
be reflected in the hearts of Thy devotees.
May the Message of God reach far and wide,
illuminating and making the whole humanity
as one single family in the parenthood of God.
