Description :


The Muhammadan Litanies is a collection of seventy invocations of prayer upon the Prophet Muhammad, Allah bless him and give him peace, starting with prayers taught by the Prophet himself, followed by prayers transmitted by his Household (Ahl al-Bayt) and Companions, and prayers from the early generations (Salaf) and the famous—and not so famous—saints and knowers of Allah and His Beloved, Allah bless him and give him peace.


Each prayer is followed by a description of its source and merits, and—for the prayers of the gnostics—a description of the saint from whom it was taken, where the author received it or read it, and a discussion on its unique properties (khawwas) and the purposes or intentions for which it can be read.



              " After the Prophet described the extreme famine that will occur
                shortly before the appearance of the Anti-Christ (Dajjal), some
                of his Companions asked, “What will the people live on at that
                time?” The Prophet, Allah bless him & give him peace, replied,
               "Utterances of La ilaha illa Allah, AllahuAkbar, subhanAllah, and
                al-hamdulillah''— that will take the place of food for them.”-
                (Ibn Majah, Sunan). We understand from this that an essential
                means to spiritually nourish and protect ourselves in the latter
                days is to adopt a daily and nightly litany consisting of recitation
                of the Qur'an, Prophetic supplications, and prayers upon the
                Prophet Muhammad, Allah bless him and give him peace,
                uttered with love, yearning, awe, and presence of heart
."



The Muhammadan Litanies is meant to be read as a daily or weekly litany, though each prayer can also be read as a standalone prayer either in unlimited number or for specific numbers. The spiritual power of these prayers upon the Prophet, Allah bless him and give him peace, is palpable to anyone reads them just once, so how much more purifying, uplifting, and spiritually edifying they will be for the one who takes them as a regular litany through each day of the week, or adopts a few as a part of his or her daily invocations and remembrance!


The majority of this work comes from Shaykh Yusuf al-Nabahani’s famed Afdal al-salawat ‘ala Sayyid al-Sadat (The Most Superior Prayers upon the Master of Masters), though I have also made use of al-Nabahani’s larger work Sa’dat al-darayn fi al-salat ‘ala Sayyid al-Kawnayn (Felicity in the Two Abodes through Prayers upon the Master of the Two Realms), as well as his Jami’ al-salawat (Compendium of Prayers).


The prayers contained in this collection are lessons in proper belief, aqida, and so it is necessary to learn, absorb, and realize the deep spiritual meanings and realities conveyed within them. To that end, alongside the translation of the prayers are explanatory footnotes to expound upon the their spiritual alchemy, their metaphysics, and the Muhammadan Realities contained within them.



              ''Contemplate these prayers, witness their secrets and lights unfold
               in your life, let them carry you and transform you into a receptacle
               of Muhammadan Love and yearning, Muhammadan character and
               concern, Muhammadan purity
.'' ---Shaykh Abdul Aziz Suraqah.




Imam Yusuf b. Isma‘il al-Nabahani, may Allah be pleased with him, (1265–1350 AH), hadith scholar, Sufi, jurist, judge, and biographer, was born in Beirut, Lebanon. A prolific author, al-Nabahani left behind a staggering collection of works in hadith, fiqh, theology, and most famously, poetry and prose in praise of our Master Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. Al-Nabahani was a paragon of prophetic love (‘ishq) and his works continue to exercise a profound influence on popular Muslim spirituality.
