The Dalail al-Khayrat
is unquestionably the most celebrated manual of Blessings upon the Beloved Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace
, in history. From the time of its authorship in fifteenth-century Fez by the Moroccan Shadhili
shaykh Muhammad al-Jazuli, may Allah be pleased with him,
(d. 870/1465), it swept throughout the whole of the Islamic World from North Africa to Indonesia. Countless millions of copies have been in circulation over the centuries with scarcely a well-to-do home in the Muslim heartlands being without one.
Scarcely a well-to-do home was without one, Princes exchanged magnificent copies of it, commoners treasured it, pilgrims wore it at their side on the way to hajj
, and barakah
(blessings) descended wherever it was recited, in accordance with the Divine command. Its celebrity swept the Islamic World from North Africa to Indonesia.

The "Waymark of Benefits'' or ''Guide to Goodness or Happiness
'' ( Dalayl al-Khayrat
) compiles of litanies invoking Peace and Blessings upon the Beloved Prophet Muhammad, May Allah bless him & grant him peace
. It is by far the most popular and universally acclaimed collection of prayers upon the Prophet, May Allah bless him & grant him peace
, used throughout the Muslim world and recited individually and in groups, in homes and in mosques, silently and aloud.
Imam Ahmad al-Sawi relates that one day Imam al-Jazuli, may Allah be pleased with him
, went to perform his ablutions for the prescribed prayer from a nearby well but could not find any means to draw the water up. While thus perplexed, he was seen by a young girl who called out from high above, “You’re the one people praise so much, and you can’t even figure out how to get water out of a well?” So she came down and spat into the water, which welled up until it overflowed and spilled across the ground. Imam Jazuli made his ablutions, and then turned to her and said, “I adjure you to tell me how you reached this rank.” She said, “By saying the Blessings upon him whom beasts lovingly followed as he walked through the wilds (Allah bless him and give him peace
).” Al-Jazuli thereupon vowed to compose the book of Blessings on the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace
) which came to be known as his Dala’il al-Khayrat
or “Waymarks of Benefits.”This Edition by Maktaba Al-Assrya
