Private Devotions For Morning And Evening From The Qur’an And Sunnah

Saeed Bin Ali Bin Wahf Al-Qahtani
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 34 | Size: 1 MB

The author said in his introduction, “There are hundreds of benefits associated with Dhikr, the act of rehearsing and celebrating the praises of Allah. The well-known medieval scholar Ibn Al-Qaiyim mentioned more than seventy of these in his book Kitabul-Adhkar. Among the benefits he mentioned were that Dhikr drives away Satan, pleases Allah, the Merciful, and replaces pain and sorrow of the heart with peace happiness and contentment.” Continue reading

Self-Ruqya Treatment: Do It Yourself Treat Your Family

Dr. Khalid Aljuraisy
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 292 | Size: 24 MB

Praise be to Allah, the Kind the Ever Caring (1), the Able, the Merciful, the Owner of the dominion. It is who answers the prayers of those in urgent need, who heals His slaves whom He tries with illness.

Praise is due to Him for His great blessings and generosity.

We testify that there is no God but Allah, alone without partners, and we testify that Muhammad is His slave and messenger, whom He has sent as a mercy to all mankind.

May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon Prophet Muhammad, his kin, his sahaabah (companions) and he dedicated followers.

Regrettably, some Muslims have neglected ruqyas. Others may have never thought about them at all. They may even see them as nonsense (2). However, the faithful believe that ruqyas are a worthy means of immense benefit for healing all physical and non-physical illnesses. Shari’ah statements confirm the permissibility of seeking healing by Qur’anic recitations and the Prophet’s established prayers. For example, Allah says, “…Say: It [the Qur’an) is for those who believe [in it] guidance and a healing.” [41/44] Also, according to the Hadith, “When Allah’s Messenger became ill, Gibreel (Angel Gabriel) would do (this) ruqya unto him: In the name of Allah, may He grant you healing. May He cure you of all illnesses, of the evil of whoever envies you, and of evil eyes.”(3)

Evidently, the ruqya literature has wide range of ruqyas. Basically, if a ruqya is permissible and it established to be beneficial, it is used. For example, some rqaais (performers of ruqya) use short surahs (Qur’anic chapters), such as Surat Al-Faatihah. Others may use a long one, such as Surat Al-Baqarah. Also, a selection of surahs can be used, e.g. Al-Faathiah plus Al-Falaq and An-Naas. Some may even use only one Ayah, e.g. Ayat Al-Kursi. Sometimes, water, oil or honey is used. The raaqi recites the ruqya unto clean water to be drunk by the patient, unto oil to be rubbed onto the body, or unto honey to be eaten.
In all the above-mentioned examples, the raaqi uses a permissible ruqya which he believes to be beneficial; and suitable for a Particular patient. This is based on the Prophet’s saying, “Let me see your ruqyas. Ruqyas are valid provided that they are void of shirk.”(4) The Prophet also says. “I see no harm (in ruqyas). Let whoever can benefit his fellow Muslim do so.”(5)

Evidently, some imams among the salaf (early righteous Muslims) used for ruqya Ayahs that had not been designated for ruqya earlier. For example, as mentioned by Ibn-Alqayyim in Attib Annabawi (Prophetic Medicine), for women having difficult labour, Imam Ahmad used to write as ruqya on white paper or something clean the following supplications, from the Hadith and the Qur’an:

– “There is no God but Allah, the Almighty, the Forbearing. Blessed be Allah, the Lord of the Glorious Throne. Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds.” (6)
– “On the day when they see that which they are promised (it will seem to them) as though they had tarried but an hour of daylight. A clear message. Shall any be destroyed save evil living folk?” [69/35]
– On the day when they behold it, it will be as if they had but tarried for an evening or the morn thereof.” [79/46]
According to Ibn-Alqayyim, some the salaf (early Muslims) – Ibn-Taymiyyah among them – mentioned that Imam Ahmad had written that ruqya for several cases of difficult delivery.

It would be impracticable to detail salaf statements with respect to the ruqyas they based on ijtihad. Therefore, not only have I selected the Ayahs specified by evidence as ruqya, but have also included other prayers believed to be beneficial for the treatment of sihr (witchcraft), possession, the evil eye and other illnesses, physical as well as non-physical.

The Qunoot Collection

Dua is one of the strongest weapons of the Believer. This tear-jerking audio set is a collection of Qanoot Dua’s made by various Imams from around the world.

“The Believers, Men and Women, are Supporters and Protectors of one another. They command Al-Ma’ruf and forbid Al-Munkar, they perform Salat and give the Zakat, and Obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah will have his Mercy on them. Surely Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise.” (At-Taubah: 71)

The Qanoot is recited at times of hardship, difficulties and when the Ummah has been affected by calamities. Usually the Imaam will recite it after the ruku and it is Sunnah for the followers to follow By stretching out their hands in front of their chest (as in dua) praying that Allah (SWT) alleviate the calamities from the Muslims.

The current Crusade against the Muslims is evidently clear from the atrocities committed against them in Iraq, Palestine, Kashmir and Chechnya. Continue reading

25 Dua’s From The Holy Qur’an

25 Dua’s From The Holy Qur’an
Language: Arabic – English | Format: EXE | Dua’s: 25 | Size: 1 MB

Du’a is a supplication in Islam, an Arabic term which means to ‘call out’ or to ’summon’. We as muslims use this  term and call out to Allah (SWT), and we also regard this as one of the second greatest acts of worship in Islam.  Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is reported to have said “Dua is the very essence of worship.” One of Allah’s (SWT)  commands expressed to us through the Noble Qur’an is for them to call out to it.

Allah (SWT) says:

وَقَالَ رَبُّڪُمُ ٱدۡعُونِىٓ أَسۡتَجِبۡ لَكُمۡۚ إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ يَسۡتَكۡبِرُونَ عَنۡ عِبَادَتِى سَيَدۡخُلُونَ جَهَنَّمَ دَاخِرِينَ

And your Lord hath said: Pray unto Me and I will hear your prayer. Lo! those who scorn My service, they will enter hell, disgraced. [Al-Ghafir: 60]

And He (SWT) says:

وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِى عَنِّى فَإِنِّى قَرِيبٌ‌ۖ أُجِيبُ دَعۡوَةَ ٱلدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ‌ۖ فَلۡيَسۡتَجِيبُواْ لِى وَلۡيُؤۡمِنُواْ بِى لَعَلَّهُمۡ يَرۡشُدُونَ

And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. [Al-Baqara: 186] Continue reading

[Hisn Almuslim] Fortress Of The Muslim: Invocations From The Qur’an And Sunnah

Saeed Bin Ali Bin Wahf Al-Qahtani
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 58 | Size: 2.5 MB

Fortress of the Muslim, Invocations from the Qur’an and Sunnah: is a very beautiful booklet consists of many authentic Dua’s (supplications) for a Muslim to supplicate on a daily basis and on special occasions.

Author’s Note

This book is an abridgment of my earlier work entitled, Adh-Dhikr wad-Du’a wal-’llaj bir-Ruqyah mina’-Kitab was-Sunnah. In order to make it small and easily portable, I have chosen only the section on words of remembrance for this abridgment. To achieve this, I only mentioned the text of the words of remembrance instead of the entire Hadith. I also limited myself to mentioning only one or two references from the original book for each Hadith. Whoever would like to know about the Companion who related a particular Hadith, or more information about where it is recorded, should refer to the original work (mentioned above). I ask Allah the Glorious, the Mighty, by His beautiful Names and by His sublime Attributes to accept this as having been done sincerely for His sake alone. I ask Him to bring me its benefits during my lifetime and after my death. May those who read it, those who print it, or have had any role in distributing it, benefit from it also. Surely He, glory be unto Him, is Capable of all things. May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet, Muhammad, and upon his family and Companions and whoever follows them in piety until the Day of Judgment. Continue reading

The Answered Supplication

Muhammad Mitwaly Ash-Sha‘rawy
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 56 | Size: 1 MB

Supplication is a call from an inferior to the superior, only addressed to he whose power surpasses that of the supplicant. With The Almighty, we supplicate Him because nothing in the entire universe is beyond His Power. If you want anything your means are powerless to fulfill, you cry for the Help of The Most High in the whole universe, Who is indeed above all means, instruments and causes. You turn to the Power and Might that created this universe and originated its causes crying, ‘O Lord,’ so that He, all praise and glory be to Him, fulfills to you what your resources have failed to make happen. Supplication is always for a thing you believe is prosperous for you. Every one of us wishes for goodness, measured from his own viewpoint and based on the extent of his knowledge. He sees that money is good for him so he begs for it, and he sees that authority is good for him so he begs Allah to have it. Even when you curse others, you want to quench the anger harbored in your heart against the one who treated you unjustly or unrightfully seized a possession of yours. Continue reading

The Goodly Word

Ibn Taymiyyah
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 371 | Size: 6 MB

The well-known work al-Kalim at-Tayyib by Ibn Taymiyyah has been widely recognized as one of the best medium-sized books giving direct access to invocations (dua) and supplications (dhikr) to be used in worship on particular occasions. Sheikh al-Islam Ahmad Abd Al-Halim ibn Taymiyyah was on of the outstanding scholars of the seventh century A.H. He was well known for his in compromising adherence to the sunnah of the Prophet (PBUH) and for combating objectionable innovations. He died in Damascus in A.H 728. The book is here presented in a shortened version, thus making it a useful manual of prayer. The translation has been made by two scholars whose previous books have gained general approval for their accuracy and readability. The translation is provided with notes and appropriate explanations. The book includes an introduction dealing with dua and dhikr in a Muslim’s prayers and circumstances of daily life; it also gives the sources of such dua and dhikr that are authentic and reviews similar collections that have been made. In addition it deals with question of the permissibility or otherwise of employing translations of dua and dhikr. A companion to the translators’ previous publications in the field of Hadith, the present book has been printed in similar format with the original Arabic text given for ease of reference.
