‘Whoever recites this prayer will be like the sun
and the moon among the stars’
This is a much-loved prayer by Ibn Arabi. The Dawr al-a’la (‘The Most Elevated Cycle’), also known as the Hizb al-Wiqaya (‘The Prayer of Protection’), is a prayer of remarkable power and beauty. It is said that whoever reads it with sincerity of heart and utter conviction, while making a specifi c plea, will have their wish granted.
