Description :

This book contains a beautiful collection of forty salawat written by Shaykh Salih al-Jafari, may Allah have mercy upon him, so that it can suffice a believer as his daily litany after the noble Qur’an. One style of salawat which has been favoured by several scholars and pious men, is to incorporate praises of the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, that begin with the different letters of the Arabic alphabet. Shaykh Salih incorporated such an ‘alphabet of praise’ or ‘alphabet of perfections,’ as we may call it, as if to remind us that this noble Seal of the Prophet, ?, contains within him the entire range of possible perfections. It also serves to remind us that he, ?, is the starting point of every goodness that comes to us from our Lord, for all our blessings are attributed to us being members of his blessed ummah.

We hope that the benefit we receive from reading the salawat in this book will be increased through the baraka (blessing) in this chain of authorisations linking us to the Messenger of Allah, ?. Furthermore, Shaykh Salih’s son and successor, Shaykh Abd al-Ghani al-Jafari, has given a general authorisation for people to recite the salawat of Shaykh Salih.

One of the most unique features of this book is the inclusion of two poems of du'a to Allah for the removal of difficulties and bringing ease to one’s affairs, which rhyme most beautifully not only in the Arabic original but also in the English translation.

This is a daily litany of forty beautiful and moving salawat and other supplications by the Imam of the Azhar Mosque, Shaykh Salih al-Ja'fari, may Allah have mercy upon him, (d. 1979). The shaykhs gave an ijaza (authorisation) for all Muslim men and women to recite it as their daily litany. Clear and easy to read Arabic font. Includes translation and transliteration.
