Powerful Dua Wird --Ya Lateef - O Gentle
-Ya Lateef /Ya Latif - O Gentle / Subtle

Allah is gentle with His servants. he provides for whom He wills, and he is the Strong the Mighty.
Allahu Latifun bi 'ibadihi, yarzuqu man yasha'u, wa huwa l'-Qawiyyu l-'Aziz

From His beautiful and excellent Names is (Ya Lateef -O Gentle) Al-lateef: the meaning is the Ever-Discreetly Gentle, most affectionate, the knower of all sublities, The Subtle One, The Gracious, The One who is kind to His slaves and endows upon them, Most affectionate or knower of innermost secrets. He is the most delicate, fine, gentle, beautiful one. He is the one who knows the finest details of beauty. The finest of His beauties are hidden in the secrets of the beauties of the soul, wisdom, and divine light.

Subtle/Gentle: (1) so slight as to be difficult to detect or analyze, (2) operating in a hidden way [American Heritage Dictonary, 3rd Edition]. Latif: in the Arabic language: (1) the One who gives us our wants in a subtle way, (2) the One who does not wrong his servants even a little bit, (3) the One who shows grace to His creation by giving them their needs with gentleness and subtlety, (4) the One who knows the hidden delicacies of affairs [Fayruzabadi, The Encompassing Dictionary].

Whoever reads this Name Ya Lateef daily, Allah will grant abundance in his rizq (sustenance) and cause all his tasks to be accomplished without difficulties.

It is the noble attribute of Allah that saves one from poverty, misery, sickness, loneliness or any adversity, for Allah will surely grant him deliverance – Insha-Allah. ( For the one that has the ‘Ijaza-permission to recite Ya Lateef which is part of our daily Wird in our Tariqah )

( the hint is that the word lateef reminds you of lutf.. and basically ‘lutf in food’ ..like the pleasure in eating. So, rizq is easy to remember and others (poverty, misery & sickness) are non-lutf stuff)

He (Allah) is the One who is so discreet in His actions that He discerns the hidden and secret, and what the hearts are filled with. He also perceives what is in the lands, of enclosed grains and seeds.

He is Ever-Gentle with His devoted slaves and makes things easy for them and keeps them away from difficulties. He makes the path to His Pleasure and Generosity easy for them.

He protects them from every and means that may lead to His anger. This is through means that they may perceive as well as means that they do not perceive. He (Allah) also decrees matters for them that they dislike in order for them to be granted what they love.

He is Gentle with them with respect to their own souls as He guides them to His beautiful ways and His noble creations.

He is Gentle with them with respect to matters that are external to them with every goodness and righteousness.

The name Al-Lateef is close in its meaning to Al-Khabeer (the Well-Acquainted with all things), Al-Ra`oof (the Clement) and Al-Kareem (the Generous).

Foot note about the openings of Ya Lateef:
To be open the sirr-secrets of the noble name Ya-Lateef one needs to have ‘Ijaza-permission to recite Ya Lateef which is part of our daily Wird in our Tariqah, thus the only way to really benefit 1000% is to join the tariqah.

From the Practical guide of asking Forgiveness of Wrong Actions;

there are some 10 points reported to Free someone from the hell-Fire:


Point 10. is Saying " Ya Latif " 16,641 times. (again one needs 'ijaza and best practise is to join the tariqah) See link below for full listing of points and manner of asking forgiveness.

Also there is the Latiffyyah gathering or reading which is to read Ya Latifu 44444 or Al-Latif 4444 times which is known for its extreme powerful results to help with problems, for more info about this you need to email

Words to Ya Lateefu Qasidah

Beautiful Ya Latif sung by Akhil Hayy

A section that is sung with the words of Lutf -Shadhili/darqawi

Ya Latifu, ya Latifu, the lutf is Yours!
You are the Latif, and from You the lutf engulfs us.

Ya Latifu, ya Latifu, I beg You by Your lutf - be the lutf to me -
and the lutf has descended!

Ya Latifu, we have hidden in Your lutf -
we have gone into the centre of lutf - and the lutf has descended.

We have been freed by the lutf of Allah, the Possessor of lutf,
Latifu, Latifu, His lutf is always that.

Ya Hafidhu, ya Hafidhu, the hifdh is Yours!
You are the Hafidh, and from You the hifdh engulfs us.

Ya Hafidhu, ya Hafidhu, I beg you by Your hifdh -
be the hifdh to me - and the hifdh has descended.

Ya Hafidhu, we have hidden in Your hifdh - we have gone
into the centre of hifdh - and the hifdh has descended.

We have been freed by the hifdh of Allah, the Possessor of hifdh.
Hafidhu, Hafidhu, His hifdh is always that.

By the rank of the Imam of the Messengers, Muhammad,
were he not the source of the hifdh, then it would not have descended.

Blessings be upon him as long as there is one who chants:
'Ya Hafidhu, ya Hafidhu, the hifdh is Yours!'

Other references with Latif

The Wird al-Latif or "devotion named al-Latif," a truly moving collective loud supplication that is read after the gathering first silently recites "Ya Latif" a certain number of times. The text of Wird al-Latif is by Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Hajar al-Haytami, like Imam al-Suyuti one of the later Shafi`i fuqaha' who belonged to the Shadhili Tariqa. The wird begins with the words:

Ala Ya Latifun Ya Latifun laka al-Lutfu
Fa Anta al-Latifu, minka yashmaluna al-Lutfu

Truly O Most Kind, O Most Kind, to You belongs all kindness! For You are the Most Kind, from You kindness encloses us!

It contains the remarkable phrase:
Wa ha nahnu dakhalna bi-wasfi al-Lutf
Lo! We have now entered the quality of Divine Kindness.
