what is the meaning of ‘Dastoor madad Ya Rijalallah‘
“Dastoor” means permission; “madad” means help; “ya Rijalullah” means O men of Allah. The expression means: “I ask your permission and apologize for imposing on you as my means to the good pleasure of Allah and His Prophet. I request your help in achieving that goal since you have more success and are more qualified and experienced in obtaining that result, you and the entire chain of saints all the way to the first Companions of the Seal of Prophets. Since I am a lazy, useless, helpless, and rebellious slave who hardly earns his bread and yet seeks to sit next to the Best of creation at his Master’s table and behold His Countenance”.
