The Text of Imam Elahi's Interfaith Prayer in Los Angeles!
رَبَّنَا اغْفِرْ لَنَا وَلِإِخْوَانِنَا الَّذِينَ سَبَقُونَا بِالإِيمَانِ وَلا تَجْعَلْ فِي
قُلُوبِنَا غِلاً لِّلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا رَبَّنَا إِنَّكَ رَؤُوفٌ رَّحِيمٌ
O God of glory and grace!
Thank you for guiding us this early morning to this gathering of faith and fellowship!
O Lord we are coming from different places of this planet, meeting at this Los Angeles Sheraton Hotel this weekend, to promote World Peace and to celebrate our similarities and appreciate our differences!
O Lord of love and justice
Bless this assembly and accept us as servants and soldiers at Your army of compassion and action!
O Allah let the light of Your Devine wisdom direct our dialogues on Universal peace and energize us to be Your ambassadors of peace, promoting patience, mutual understanding, respect, reconciliation and peaceful coexistence amount Your people regardless of their race, religion, nationality or cultural characteristics!
Strengthen our voice to reject fear mongering , hatred, extremism, war and violence and revive the culture of dialogue, diplomacy and human brotherhood!
O lord please guid us to the road of the righteous, let’s learn submission from Abraham, courage from Moses, love from Jesus and wisdom from Mohammad and every goodness and beauty from every other moral model you sent to this earth from Your heavenly kingdom!
