Memorizing Invocations from the Glorious Quran I

With the Name of the God, the Most Beneficent above all, the Most Merciful!

I'm just including the meaning in English. Lazy to type in Arabic and afraid that it would be defecated when printed out. English speakers could just first memorize the English meaning. Later, you may learn Arabic sounds. Don't worry about rituals, they are actually very easy once you grasped basic things. 

When you perform all of the rituals with understandings only you will feel His great love descends on you. You could see it with your heart and soul, but never with your physical eyes. Our eyes are deceiving and environment around us is deceiving us. I am also deceived by my eyes where my faith will also becomes weak if I believe what I see and yet I still believe them :'((((

We actually have two kinds of supplications and prayers to the God. The first one is these kind of prayers from divine letters in the quranic verses while another one is from sunnah or the traditions of the prophet. 

Recite al-Fatihah

With the Name of the God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful 1 Praises be only to the God, the Lord of the Universe 2 The Most Generous, the Most Beneficent 3 King of the Day of the Law (judgement) 4 Only You that we worship, and only You that we follow 5 Show us please the straight path 6 The path where You had agreed upon. Not (the path) of those who had raised Your wrath, and those who went astray 7

Memorize al-Baqarah 127-128

Our Lord please accept us (our services). Indeed You are the One who hears everything, who knows everything 127 Our Lord, and make us the people who submit to You and from our generations the nations of those who are submissive to You, and show us our rituals and accept our penitence. Indeed You are the One who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful 128  

Al-Baqarah 286

Our Lord! Please don't punish us if we forget or fall into error. Our Lord! Please lay not on us the burden like what had been burdened on those before us. Our Lord! Put not on us the burden greater than we have strength to bear. Pardon us we beg You, and grant us forgiveness. Have mercy on us dear Lord, You are our Salvator and Protector and give us victory over the ingrates 286

Memorize little by little and check the translation in your glorious Quran exegesis. Don't burden ourselves but always assume ourselves as the seeker of knowledge. We are now traveling in the Universe and going through many experiences in this travel. Whether they are nice or foul but we are trying everything. 

Don't be shy to seek knowledge because nobody is perfect. This is actually the advice for myself but it may also motivate others. Begin once you had memorized the verses for supplications like after the salaat services. Pause for few moments to think deeply on what are the messages of divine words mean, may Allah helps everyone with His guidance.

May Allah be Merciful on everyone in this period of malefactors and slanders. Sealed with prayers for peace, mercy, and love to brothers and sisters in faith.
