MUSLIM PRAYER

(For this prayer Meher Baba Called for a cloth to be spread on the ground in front of His painting and a red scarf with which He covered His head. Ali Akbar Shapurzaman (Aloba) and Meher Baba stood on the cloth to the direction of Mecca. Aloba then began to chant prayer, which consisted to the prelude to the Quoran and first verse of Quoran.

PRELUDE: “God is Great! God is Great! God is Great! I bear the witness that there is no one greater than God. This is the word of Prophet. I bear witness and say that Mohammad is the chosen of God. I bear witness and say that Mohammad is the chosen of God. Come for prayer. Come for prayer. Come towards success. God is the greatest of all! God is greatest of all! God is greatest of all!   There is none who is to be worshipped but God. There is none who is to be worshipped but God. There is none who is to be worshipped but God.”

PRAYER: I begin in the name of God, who is King and merciful. All praise be to God, who is the preserver of the whole world; who is kind and merciful. He is the Master of the Day of Resurrection/ O God! We pray to You and we seek only your help. Show us the path of righteousness. Show me the path which will bestow on me Thy mercy, and not clarity, by which I may reach my goal, and not fall in a pit.

“O Prophet Mohammad! Tell the infidels that I do not pray to whom they pray, and they do not pray to the One to whom I pray. I nether pray to the One to whom you pray, nor do you pray to the One to whom I pray. Your religion is with you, mine is with me. Holy is my God, who is also Mighty. God has heard the one who has praised Him. O my God!  All praise should be attributed to You. My God is high and holy. All thoughts, words and deeds are for God. My obeisance to You, Prophet Mohammad, on whom is bestowed the grace of God. May that grace descend also on me, and on His believers. I bear that there is none greater than God, and that Mohammad is the Prophet of God.

(All during this prayer, Baba’s fingers were moving and at times Aloba raised his arms, bowed, kneeled and prostrated himself)
