Compiled by: Shaykh Hazem Abu Ghazaleh (R.A.)

Knower of All?h,?Spiritual Coach to the Seekers of All?h,

Master Shaykh of Q?diri Sh?dhili Order,

Of Asha?ari Creed, Hanafi Legal School, and Hussaini Descent

Introduction

All praise is due to All?h. He guides the blissful to His remembrance. He blessed them with intimate sessions of His Dhikr. May the blessings of All?h be upon His Prophet Muhammad, the best of creation and the one who is most blessed with the Dhikr of All?h. The Prophete used to make Dhikr and remember All?h all his times.

No doubt, successful slaves of All?h are the ones who always remember All?h and attach themselves to a litany [Wird] of Dhikr. As a result, their souls become pure, sorrows clear away, and faith increases. Obviously, there is a decrease where there is no increase. Faith [?m?n] and Divine Remembrance [Dhikr] are closely related beyond separation.

This booklet contains a collection of honourable litanies derived from the Prophet Muhammade. Permission was given to our Shaykh, through a chain of the Grand Shaykhs of the Order, by the Prophete to read these litanies. All?h will abundantly honour whoever upholds these litanies with great benefits in this world and in the Hereafter.

The following Prophetic traditions [ah?dith] pent some proof supporting the litanies:

  • Al-Agharesr bin Yas?r RA reported the Prophet e as saying: ?Oh Mankind, repent to All?h and ask His forgiveness; for I do repent to All?h a hundred times in a day?.
  • Anas RA reported the Prophet e as saying ?Whoever makes one Dua?a for me (recite salaw?t); All?h will shower him with ten blessings. Whoever makes 10 Dua?a for me, All?h will shower him with a hundred blessings. Whoever makes 100 Dua?a for me, All?h will grant him an acquittal of hypocrisy, an acquittal from the Hell Fire, and on the Day of Judgement All?h will place him amongst the Martyrs.?[1]
  • Ubay bin Ka?ab t was reported as asking the Prophet e ?Oh Prophet of All?h, I do a lot of Dua?a for you; how much of my Dua?a should I dedicate for you?” The Prophet e responded, ?Whatever you like?. Therefore, Ubay t enquired ?How about a quarter?? The Prophet e responded ?Whatever you like; the more the better?. Ubay t then further inquired ?How about half of my Dua?a?? The Prophet e responded ?Whatever you like; the more the better?. Ubay t further inquired, ?How about dedicating two thirds?? The Prophet e responded ?Whatever you like; the more the better?. At that time, Ubay t declared, ?I will make ALL my Dua?a for you?. The Prophet e confirmed ?then you will have nothing to worry about, and your sins will be forgiven?[2]
  • Abu-Hurayrah t reported the Prophet as saying, ?Whoever says, ?There is no god but All?h. All?h is the One and Only, without a partner; to Him belongs the dominion; All Praise is due to Him and He has power over everything.? a hundred times a day: will be rewarded as freeing ten slaves, rewarded with a hundred goodness [hasanah] a hundred sins (sayi?ah) removed and having a security against the Shayt?n for the day. None will do any better than him except one that exceeds in this.?[3]

After Fajr Prayer

There is no god but All?h, The One and Only. All?h has no associate and to Him belongs all the Dominion and all Praise. He gives life, causes death, and is the All-Arranging. 10
O All?h, You are my Lord; no god but You; You created me, and I am Your slave. I abide by Your covenant and promise as best I can. I seek refuge in You from the evil of what I have committed. I acknowledge Your blessing upon me; and I confess my sin; Forgive me. None can forgive but You. 3
I seek forgiveness of All?h, the Majestic. No god but Him, the Living, and Self-subsistent. I repent to All?h as a helpless slave who cannot bring good, evil, death, life or resurrection to himself. 1
There is no god but All?h. 3
Our Honourable Muhammade is the Messenger of All?h. 1
O All?h! Protect us from the Hell fire. 7
O All?h!????? We seek Your pleasure and??? Paradise. 8
We seek refuge in You from Your anger and Hell Fire. 1
