Allahumma

In his booklet “The Glorious Treasure” al-Habib ‘Umar bin Hafidh, the founder of Dar ul-Mustafa, Tarim, quotes al-Hasan al-Basri who said: “Allahumma is an assemblage of all names through which Allah is supplicated.” Furthermore Abu-Raja al-‘Utaridi is quoted who said: “The meem in Allahumma contains ninety nine names of Allah.” Anndhar bin Shumail said: “Whoever supplicates with Allahumma has asked Allah by all of His names.” Abu Muhammad al-Batlyusi said: “When one supplicates with Allahumma it is as if saying: ‘O Allah, with all His beauteous names.'”
