Description :

Being the Nation of Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, makes us the Nation of the Qur'an; the last Nation; the nation whose every heart has the potential to contain The Book about which Allah Himself said;

"Had We sent this Qur'an upon a mountain, you would have certainly seen it humbled and torn
 apart in awe of Allah. We set forth such comparisons for people so perhaps they may reflect."


The magnitude of this gift was appreciated from the outset, and at a time when things are seemingly disintegrating, Muslims must realise that the Our'an remains the most relevant and uniting force - a rope to hold onto in difficult times.


The act of congregating and calling upon Allah at the time of completing the Qur'an is firmly established as a praiseworthy act and regions have developed their own norms for such gatherings. In the Hadramawt valley in the city of Tarim, the scholars displayed their partiality for the highly eloquent, pathos-filled supplications of the great grandson of the Prophet? - our Master Zayn al-Abidin, may Allah be pleased with him.

This set of prayers became the highlight around which they added certain verses of the Holy Book, another no less heart-rending supplication and lament about the status and rights of parents, the famous dua of Birr al-Walidayn - Filial Piety, and some verses of the ode of Imam al-Haddad, The Fragrant Breezes.' This work is a translation of the Nasim, a compilation by Sayyid 'Abd al-Qadir ibn 'Abdullah ibn 'Ali ibn Shihab al-Din, a student of Habib 'Umar ibn Hafiz, in which he brings together those various gems.
