Prayer is considered an essential Sufi practice, emphasizing the human need for expression. Recognizing this need, Hazrat Inayat Khan composed morning, midday, evening, and occasional prayers that are now used by universalist Sufis all over the world.
This short prayer is often said before beginning a service or ceremony. It is a way of stating our intention and calling upon the Divine to guide us.
Toward the One, the Perfection of Love, Harmony, and Beauty, the Only Being, United with all the Illuminated Souls Who form the Embodiment of the Messenger, the Spirit of Guidance
