'' The distinguishing feature of Sunnis is their frequent sending
of prayers upon the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him
and grant him peace.'' ---Imam 'Ali Zayn al-'Abidin Ibn

The Drink of the People of Purity in Prayers upon the Chosen Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, is a succinct guidebook for seekers who wish to deepen their connection with the Prophet Muhammad, salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, and experience his centrality in attaining worldly and Afterworldly needs. This Drink, described by the author as the “Ascension Point” from which seekers rise to the Divine Presence, is none other than heartfelt prayers and salutations upon the Chief of Creation, salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam.
This rare work, recently discovered and published in Arabic and now available in English, details a practical and spiritually effulgent way for seekers to seek intimacy and protection through the Prophet, salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam.
Extract from the Introduction :
“One’s tongue should be a medium through which the tongue
of the Beloved (prayers & salutations be upon him) speaks,
for whosoever supplicates to Allah with his own tongue will
have failed and erred. But whosoever strips himself of his own
tongue (both the physical and spiritual thereof) and takes the
tongue of the Beloved as his intercessor in all of his statements,
actions, movements, and stillness— such that when he speaks
it is through the Prophet’s tongue, and when he is silent it is
through the Prophet’s tongue, too—it is a right upon Allah
Most High that He grant him his wishes and cause him to
ascend through the Prophet’s Ascension Point, till he sits upon
the carpet of his love and affection, and he (prayers and
salutations be upon him) pours for him from the wine of his
purity (safa’)!” —Shaykh Muhammad al-Qandusi.
