Hizb al-Bahr (Prayer of the Sea), a unique litany made of Qur'anic verses and supplications, is attributed to the venerated pole Shaykh Mawlana Abu' l-Hasan al-Shadhili, may Allah be pleased with him, (d. 656/1241).

The litany contains the Greatest Name of Allah (al-Ism al-A’adham) and the reading of it draws forth extraordinary majestic epiphanies. Hence the disciple should receive an ijaza (licence) from his *shaykh [spiritual guide] to benefit from it. On the litany, the Shaykh Abu' l-Hasan al-Shadhili, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “By Allah, I did not utter it except as it came from the Holy Prophet, from whose instruction I learned it. ‘Guard it;' the Holy Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said to me, ‘for it contains the greatest name of Allah.' It is not recited in any place without security reigning there. If it had been with the inhabitants of Baghdad, the Tatars would not have taken the city.”

On the virtues of the Hizb al-Bahr, the noted Imam of Qarawiyyine Mosque, the Shaykh Sidi Ibn Abbad ar-Rundi al-Andalusi, may Allah be pleased with him, (d. 792/1377) said, “Whoever recites it every day at sunrise, Allah hears his prayer, relieves his distress, raises his standing among people, expands his breast with knowledge of the divine oneness, facilitates his concerns, lifts his hardship, keeps from him the evil of man and jinn, and protects him from the harm of mishaps of the night and day.” Further, the grand master Sidi Ahmed Zarruq al-Fasi, may Allah be pleased with him, (d. 899/1484) clarifies, “As for bringing about effects with this litany, it is commensurate with one’s aim and aspiration that one has command of it to draw or repel, intending what is desired when ones say, ‘And subject to us this sea. - wa sakh-khir lană hadhăl Bahr-'.”
