: The Outcome of Contemplation Over Loud Dhikr
: Natijatu al-fikr fil-jahri bil-dhikr
Written by one of the most celebrated and prolific scholars of the Islamic civilisation, this treatise was written in response to a questioner in regards to remembering God (dhikr
) aloud and in a group.
In his response, Imam al-Suyuti, may Allah be pleased with him
, responds citing twenty five Prophetic traditions that in his estimation, not only justify collective dhikr
, but highly recommend it.
Building on Imam al-Suyuti, may Allah be pleased with him
, authoritative account, the accompanying appendices and running commentary by Shaykh Gibril Haddad make this the ultimate reference on the subject of loud dhikr for the Muslim public. ---Muhammad Afifi al-Akiti, Fellow of the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, University of Oxford
Imam al-Suyuti, may Allah be pleased with him, is one of the towering landmarks of Islamic scholarship. This fatwa from a famous Qur'anic exegete, a leading authority in all the Qur'anic sciences, traditionist, jurisprudent, grammarian and historian, given with his characteristic lucidity and authority, obviates the need to look for more on the same subject.---Mostafa al-Badawi, author of Sufi Sage of Arabia: Abdallah ibn Alawi al-Haddad.
An immense contribution. This timeless fatwa brings traditional scholarly authority of the highest degree and removes dangerous misconceptions about the centrality and universal benefit of the collective remembrance of God as a standing Sunna
of worship in the Muslim community. Al-Suyuti's pronouncement on this matter is essential for our community to grow and to develop spiritually by removing the dros of ignorance in the name of Islam that blocks access to the divine. Any Muslim who may have doubts on this matter should hold firmly to the category.---Umar Faruq Abdallah, author of A Muslim in Victorian America: The Life of Alexander Russell Webb
