    1. Du`a

    (i)     “Ya Rabbee ‘l-‘izzati wa ‘l-‘azhamati wa ‘l-Jabbaroot”

    (ii)    Move 3 steps forward, right leg first, facing qiblah and say,

    “Ya Rabbee, I am moving and stepping forward for Maqam al-Fana filLah, Oh Allah Subhana wa Ta’ala, I am asking you to vanish me in Your Existence and, Ya Rabbee, I am moving toward your ocean of Unity, the Ocean of WahdaniyyahYa Rabbee, don’t reject me until I reach the unique Maqam al-Fardani.”

    Ya Rabbee, since this month is your month – Rajabun Shahrullah – I came to you as a weak guest and intending to worship You, without asking anything in return.  My aim, my goal s You and that is why I am coming, please don’t reject me.”

    Ya Rabbee, all my life I spent in kufr and shirk and bad behavior and I am declaring 100% that I did not do any ‘amal that is accepted by You.  You are Allah, Anta ‘Llah, Who never threw away anyone that came to Your door.  Anta ‘Llah that no one came to Your door by his`amal but by Your grant and reward.”

    Ya Rabbee, I am coming to your door and coming to you, declaring and confessing that I am wrong and I want to declare and announce my Islam and enter into Islam newly.  Ya Rabbee, I have given everything into Your hands – my life, my death, after my death, Judgment Day and all my things I have transferred to You and You are the One Who controls me.”

    Ya Rabbee, I don’t possess anything with my nafs and my soul.  I cannot give good to myself or bad to myself, or life to myself or death to myself, but I have transferred all my accounts and all your judgment on me and all your questions to me and all my answers I have transferred to you.  Whatever You want to do with me, You do.  My neck is in Your hand.  I am helpless from answering Your questions, even the smallest answer I cannot answer.  With all this weakness and helplessness and hopelessness I am coming to Your door.”

    “Ya Rabbee, if you had 2 doors for your servant to enter through; one for the believers from Your servants and one for the kafir from Your servants, I am coming to You from the door that the kafir needs to come through and I am declaring that believing that this is the only door for me to come through.  I am saying to you that I have to renew my Iman and Shahada and this `amal and this Shahada is the 1st `amal for me after I am pronouncing the Shahada and entering Islam and You are my Wakeel.”

    a)                  “Ya Wakeel.  Hasbun Allah wa Ni`ma ‘l-Wakeel.  Wa laa hawla wa laa quwwata illa bilLahi ‘l-`Aliyyu ‘l-`Azheem.

    b)                  (Shahada 3x with raised finger)

    Ya Rabbee, as Grandshaykh Shaykh Abdullah al-Fa`izi ad-Daghistani and my Shaykh Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Qubrusi al-Haqqani as they made seclusion in this month and whatever niyyat (intention) they made, Ya Allah, let me be joined with their niyyat, because my tongue cannot say what is necessary to be said, so please share my niyyat with theirs.  With this intention I come to your door.

    Ya Rabbee, from the Day of Alastu bi-Rabbikum, Qaaloo balaa – whatever there was of promise from me to You, I accept and promise to do it all.  Ya Rabbee, Ya Allah, from the day You created my atom, my dharrah, and from the day You brought up my soul, and from the day my soul came from absolute abstract to existence, until our day, how much of the disobedience has appeared from me and my dharrah and from my soul and my body spiritually or physically – Zhahiran wa Baatinan, I am regretting them all and regretting what I did and coming back to You asking forgiveness and repentance.”

    Ya Rabbee, I entered and I moved into the ocean of blessings of Your praised month.  Ya Rabbee don’t reject me from your door and don’t leave me to my ego for the blink of an eye and I am asking forgiveness by saying,” (Astaghfirullah 70X)
