An elegant illuminated 'Arabic' edition of Mulla ‘Ali al-Qari’s, may Allah have mercy upon him, celebrated litany, Al-Hizb al-A’zam wa ’l-Wird al-Afkham.


Al-Hizb al-A’zam is a beautifully organised and comprehensive collection of invocations drawn from the Qur’an and Prophetic Sunna. Its wide range leaves uncovered hardly any area of worldly and otherworldly concern, and a complete reading might well put before Allah just about everything one would need in both this life and the next. This work’s acceptance is plainly visible in the multitudes of devotees who recite it regularly around the world. A lot of attention has been paid to it, from commentaries and translations to abridgements and rearrangements.


Though a number of illuminated copies exist in manuscript, no illuminated edition to our knowledge has yet become available in print. For an important book of prayers such as this, illumination provides an aesthetic touch that pleases the eye and enhances the reader’s spiritual engagement with the text. No effort has been spared in preparing this edition to bring about immense joy and pleasure for its readers.





      ***The typeface was prepared from the original naskh script of the acclaimed Syrian calligrapher ‘Uthman Taha, who is renowned for his beautiful, clear texts,
      ***Each page is set in 12 lines enclosed with a decorative gold & red frame,
      ***The inner pages are printed using 5 colours & varnished on coated stock,
      ***The binding is strong & durable so that the book, when opened, lies flat,
      ***The openings are adorned by illuminated headpieces in gold,
      ***The 99 Names of Allah are elegantly featured across a 2-page spread,
      ***Modern typographical touches have been added to this edition,
      ***In addition, marginal heads are included to guide the reader.
      ***To facilitate pauses during recitation, punctuation marks have been added, 
      ***The text of this edition is primarily based on that of the Indian editions,
      ***The invocations are fully referenced in an appendix, 
      ***A traditional license of transmission (ijaza) to the author is included,
      ***The end sheets carry a printed design in pantone gold and varnish,
      ***The front & back covers include the book title in gold foil, 
      ***A ribbon marker matching the colour of each cover is added.

The Author : Mulla ‘Ali ibn Sultan Muhammad al-Qari, rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi, more popularly known as Mulla ‘Ali al-Qari, was an ascetic, hadith scholar, jurist, theologian, exegete, heresiographer, calligrapher, hajj specialist, philologist, logician and author of what has been hailed as the most comprehensive Arabic commentary on the Mishkat al-Masabih, entitled Mirqat al-Mafatih.


He is also famous for his commentary on Al-Fiqh al-Akbar, called Minah al-Rawd al-Azhar (Gifts of the Blooming Gardens). Al-Qari was born in Herat, Afghanistan, where he received his primary years of Islamic education. Thereafter, he moved to Makka, where he studied under numerous scholars, including Shaykh Ahmad ibn Hajar al-Haytami al-Makki and Qutb al-Din al-Hanafi. He was called Al-Qari, “The Reciter,” because of his mastery of the science of Qur’anic recitation. Mulla ‘Ali al-Qari remained in Makka, where he taught until his death in 1014/1606. His written works include a two-volume commentary on Qadi ‘Iyad’s Al-Shifa’ (The Cure); and a two-volume commentary on Imam Ghazali’s abridgment of the Ihya’ ‘Ulum al-Din (The Revival of the Religious Sciences), entitled ‘Ayn al-’Ilm wa Zayn al-Hilm (The Spring of Knowledge and the Adornment of Understanding).
