Description :

'The Secrets of Worship, Du'a - The Core of Worship' (Jawahir al-Bayaan fi Asraar al-Arkaan), is the first ever English translation of the celebrated work on Ibaadah (worship) by Shaykh Hadrat Allama Naqi Ali Khan, may Allah be pleased with him, [d.1297H] the illustrious and noble father of the Reviver and Reformer of Islam, AlaHadrat Shaykh Imam Ahmad Rida Khan, may Allah Almighty sanctify his secret.

This is a classic handbook on the secrets of Worship pertaining to the Five Pillars of Islam. The erudite author was a senior Sufi Master and hence, he prudently explains all the forms of Worship with its secrets in a very classical manner. His explanations are both in light of the sacred Shari'ah and the mystical path of Tariqah. The sacred Shari'ah is called the theory and Tariqah is the methodology or practicals of the correct way to execute them. Hence, they put one's shoulders to the wheel of obedience and subservience and direct the reins of one's heart towards the garden of trust and beleif as this is the marrow and Essence of Worship.

This amazing book will give the reader an insight of the Spiritual Secrets of Worship dealing with Salaat, Fasting, Zakaat and on embarking the Hajj pilgrimage.

About the Author : Allama Shaykh Naqi Ali Khan, al-Qadiri alayhir ar-Rahman, was a renowned mudarris (teacher) and a prolific writer. Most of his time was engaged in teaching & instilling the excellence of knowledge in the hearts of the community. His deep insight in complicated matters dazzled the contemporary ulama (scholars) of his time so much so that they conferred the title of Ra’eesul-Muhaqqiqeen (The Master of the Research Scholars) on him. Indeed, this title befitted him.

He is known to have written over 50 books on various subjects, amongst them, "Suroor al-Qulub fi Zikri Mawlud al-Mahbub" and "Al-Kalaam al-Awdah fi Tafsir Sura Alam-Nash’rah", received high distinctive and status amongst Islamic literature. Spiritually he was a senior disciple and Khalifa of the Grand Master Ghawth al-Waqt, Khatim al-Akaabir, Sayyid Ale’Rasul Ahmadi, al-Husaini al-Barkaati, alayhi ar-Rahman, and also received the Ijaza of Hadith Shareef from his shaykh. The shaykh was a student of the celebrated Muhaddith, Allama Shah Abd 'al-Aziz Muhaddith al-Dehlawi, alayhi ar-Rahman w'al-Ridwan. Shaykh Naqi Ali also received Ijaza of Hadith in Makkah Mukarrama from the illustrious Ustadh al-Ulama, al-Shaykh al-Haram, Shaykh Sayyid Ahmad Zayni Dahlaan al-Makki, alayhi ar-Rahman.

It was in the 19th Century (13th Hijri) that Allama Naqi Ali, alayhi ar-Rahman, laid the foundation of a Darul-Ifta in Bareilly Shareef. This Darul-Ifta later became the nucleus and fountainhead of fiqah in the whole world. Shaykh Naqi Ali Khan, alayhi ar-Rahman, was a distinguished and great jurist of his time. He passed away in Bareilly shareef in 1297AH. He had personally groomed his noble son, Imam Ahmad Raza Khan, and perfected him as a 'Master Jurist' at the tender age of 13 years. And the rest is history. ---Edited from Raza.org.za.

About the Translator : Shaykh 'Abd al-Hadi al-Qadiri al-Ridawi al-Shafi'i, was born on the 14th of Muharram 1371 Hijri (22nd September 1953) into a Noble family whose roots were deep in tasawwuf. His grandfather, Shaykh Muhammad Husain Chishti-Nizami, rahmatullahi 'alayhi, (d.1339/1922) was a devout murid and servant of his Murshid-e-Kamil, the Qutb, Hadrat Shah Ghulam Muhammad Sufi Siddiqui al-Qadiri, al-Chishti-Nizami Habibi, rahmatullahi 'alayhi, (D.1329/1911) - compassionately known as 'Hadrat Sufi Sahib.' He was brought by his Murshid to South Africa in the late 1800's.

Shaykh 'Abd al-Hadi was greatly influenced by his father, Shaykh 'Abd al-Wahhab Chishti-Nizami, rahmatullahi 'alayhi, (d.1401/1981), from a young age and hence, in 1969 left S.Africa to study Din in Bareilly Sharif, India. In 1971 he accompanied the Sufi Master, Mufti Azam-e-Hind, Imam Mustapha Rida al-Qadiri, al-Nuri, rahmatullahi 'alayhi, as his khadim for the Hajj pilgrimage. It was during this blessed trip that Shaykh Abd al-Hadi became a murid and honoured with the wikalat of Mufti Azam-e-Hind.  In 1976 he was entrusted with the khilafat of the Qadiriyyah Barkatiyya Silsila and the following year the ijazah of Hadith Silsalatuz Zahb.

The shaykh graduated from Jamia Radawiyyah 'Manazar e Islam' in Bareilly sharif in 1978 and finally returned to South Africa. The shaykh was appointed in charge of several institutions and served as Imam across many Masjids. However it was in 1986 he founded the hugely influential Imam Ahmad Raza Academy in Durban, South Africa. He went onto receive ijazah to narrate Hadith sharif from Sayyid Shaykh Muhammad 'Alawi Maliki al-Hasani, rahmatullahi 'alayhi in 1990, and in 1997 was bestowed khilafat of the Qadiriyyah Barkatiyya Silsila this time by Sayyid  Shah Ale-Rasul Hasnayn Barkati, Sajjadah of the Khanqah-e-Barkatiyyah, Marehra sharif, India. The shaykh continues to receive numerous other khilafats and ijazahs as well as many blessed and rare sacred relics, books and manuscripts from illustrious mashaykh and sufi masters from across the middle-east and Asia.

The shaykh has translated, written and published more than 70 books on various subjects in English and is still devoutly striving to publish more books for the benefit of the Muslim Ummah. The shaykh conducts weekly classes at the Imam Ahmad Raza Academy and also leads the Hadrah-e-Qadiriyyah (dhikr) on a weekly basis too. He is the Founder and President of the Imam Ahmad Raza Academy, Director of Barkatur-Raza Publications and the recently launced publishing house Sufi Pages.
