Ibu reminds us all, during these challenging times, of a prayer from Bapak…

Allah has given His teaching to man:
Make an effort to strengthen your faith,
Now when the world is experiencing a crisis.
Strengthen your faith by way of worship
Which is the only way for all of you.
It can deflect dangers and catastrophes
That would overtake you.
This is what was taught by the Prophets,
Among them Jesus Christ and Prophet Muhammad.

Never put aside the power of God
Which is in each one of you.
In truth God loves all His creatures
And will always protect, lead and guide each one of you.
Therefore strengthen your worship of Almighty God.
Alhamdu lillahi rabbil a’lamin
May God be just and loving to His creatures.

On Bapak’s birthday, Cilandak, 22 June 1980 80 CDK

This is taken from a collection of special moments when Bapak sang or prayed for Subud members (Songs and Prayers of Bapak – available on the Subud Library)
