My spiritual master Shaykh Muhammad al-Amin ibn Adam (Pictured Left), may Allah be merciful to him said that this supplication of Shehu Uthman ibn Fuduye` was recited by him before any of his objectives and awraad.
I took this supplication from him as he took it from his father, Shaykh Adam al-Khateeb, and he on the authority of his spiritual master Shaykh Musa al-Muhajir, and he on the authority of his spiritual master, the Imam and al-Khateeb, Shaykh Ali ibn Abu Bakr, and he on the authority of the Reformer of the Deen, the Light of the Age, the Amir’l-Mu’mineen, Shehu Uthman ibn Fuduye`, may Allah be merciful to all of them.
I have given license for anyone who comes upon this supplication with its chain of authority from me, since transmitting license in this manner is sound in the opinion of some of the scholars, as it has been repeatedly done in the prophetic traditions, as Amir’l-Mu’mineen Muhammad Bello explained in his Turjumaat. I have never recited this supplication prior to reciting the Munaajaat of the Shehu except that my supplications were answered, and to Allah is the praise.
Success is with Allah
Shaykh Muhammad Shareef
