Description :

'Du'a - The Core of Worship' is the first ever English translation of the celebrated work on Ibaadah (worship) by Shaykh Hadrat Allama Naqi Ali Khan, may Allah be pleased with him, [d.1297h] the illustrious and noble father of the Reviver and Reformer of Islam, AlaHadrat Shaykh Imam Ahmad Rida Khan, may Allah Almighty sanctify his secret, [d.1340h].

Du'a is a conversation with Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, our Creator, our Lord and Master, the All-Knowing, the All-Powerful and most Compassionate. This act in itself is the most uplifting, liberating, empowering and transforming conversation a person can ever have. We feel relieved and empowered after having communicated with Almighty Allah. Du'a is the essence of Ibadah. A person who sincerely engages in Du'a understands exactly the relationship between himself and the Creator and affirms it through his actions. That is, the brain of worship!

We believe that by reading this book, you will be well informed into looking at Du'a from a totally new constructive perspective and also when you adhere closely to the advices concerning Du'a written in this book by two of the giants in the field of Islamic knowledge. The reader's life will certainly move towards the brighter side. In sha Allah Du'a can change your life, your outlook and your fate. It is the most potent weapon of a Muslim, but it only works for those who diligently and sincerely use it!

About the Author : Allama Shaykh Naqi Ali Khan, al-Qadiri alayhir ar-Rahman, was a renowned mudarris (teacher) and a prolific writer. Most of his time was engaged in teaching & instilling the excellence of knowledge in the hearts of the community. His deep insight in complicated matters dazzled the contemporary ulama (scholars) of his time so much so that they conferred the title of Ra’eesul-Muhaqqiqeen (The Master of the Research Scholars) on him. Indeed, this title befitted him.

He is known to have written over 50 books on various subjects, amongst them, "Suroor al-Qulub fi Zikri Mawlud al-Mahbub" and "Al-Kalaam al-Awdah fi Tafsir Sura Alam-Nash’rah", received high distinctive and status amongst Islamic literature. Spiritually he was a senior disciple and Khalifa of the Grand Master Ghawth al-Waqt, Khatim al-Akaabir, Sayyid Ale’Rasul Ahmadi, al-Husaini al-Barkaati, alayhi ar-Rahman, and also received the Ijaza of Hadith Shareef from his shaykh. The shaykh was a student of the celebrated Muhaddith, Allama Shah Abd 'al-Aziz Muhaddith al-Dehlawi, alayhi ar-Rahman w'al-Ridwan. Shaykh Naqi Ali also received Ijaza of Hadith in Makkah Mukarrama from the illustrious Ustadh al-Ulama, al-Shaykh al-Haram, Shaykh Sayyid Ahmad Zayni Dahlaan al-Makki, alayhi ar-Rahman.

It was in the 19th Century (13th Hijri) that Allama Naqi Ali, alayhi ar-Rahman, laid the foundation of a Darul-Ifta in Bareilly Shareef. This Darul-Ifta later became the nucleus and fountainhead of fiqah in the whole world. Shaykh Naqi Ali Khan, alayhi ar-Rahman, was a distinguished and great jurist of his time. He passed away in Bareilly shareef in 1297AH. He had personally groomed his noble son, Imam Ahmad Raza Khan, and perfected him as a 'Master Jurist' at the tender age of 13 years. And the rest is history. ---Edited from Raza.org.za.

About the Translator : Shaykh 'Abd al-Hadi al-Qadiri al-Ridawi al-Shafi'i, was born on the 14th of Muharram 1371 Hijri (22nd September 1953) into a Noble family whose roots were deep in tasawwuf. His grandfather, Shaykh Muhammad Husain Chishti-Nizami, rahmatullahi 'alayhi, (d.1339/1922) was a devout murid and servant of his Murshid-e-Kamil, the Qutb, Hadrat Shah Ghulam Muhammad Sufi Siddiqui al-Qadiri, al-Chishti-Nizami Habibi, rahmatullahi 'alayhi, (D.1329/1911) - compassionately known as 'Hadrat Sufi Sahib.' He was brought by his Murshid to South Africa in the late 1800's.

Shaykh 'Abd al-Hadi was greatly influenced by his father, Shaykh 'Abd al-Wahhab Chishti-Nizami, rahmatullahi 'alayhi, (d.1401/1981), from a young age and hence, in 1969 left S.Africa to study Din in Bareilly Sharif, India. In 1971 he accompanied the Sufi Master, Mufti Azam-e-Hind, Imam Mustapha Rida al-Qadiri, al-Nuri, rahmatullahi 'alayhi, as his khadim for the Hajj pilgrimage. It was during this blessed trip that Shaykh Abd al-Hadi became a murid and honoured with the wikalat of Mufti Azam-e-Hind.  In 1976 he was entrusted with the khilafat of the Qadiriyyah Barkatiyya Silsila and the following year the ijazah of Hadith Silsalatuz Zahb.

The shaykh graduated from Jamia Radawiyyah 'Manazar e Islam' in Bareilly sharif in 1978 and finally returned to South Africa. The shaykh was appointed in charge of several institutions and served as Imam across many Masjids. However it was in 1986 he founded the hugely influential Imam Ahmad Raza Academy in Durban, South Africa. He went onto receive ijazah to narrate Hadith sharif from Sayyid Shaykh Muhammad 'Alawi Maliki al-Hasani, rahmatullahi 'alayhi in 1990, and in 1997 was bestowed khilafat of the Qadiriyyah Barkatiyya Silsila this time by Sayyid  Shah Ale-Rasul Hasnayn Barkati, Sajjadah of the Khanqah-e-Barkatiyyah, Marehra sharif, India. The shaykh continues to receive numerous other khilafats and ijazahs as well as many blessed and rare sacred relics, books and manuscripts from illustrious mashaykh and sufi masters from across the middle-east and Asia.

The shaykh has translated, written and published more than 70 books on various subjects in English and is still devoutly striving to publish more books for the benefit of the Muslim Ummah. The shaykh conducts weekly classes at the Imam Ahmad Raza Academy and also leads the Hadrah-e-Qadiriyyah (dhikr) on a weekly basis too. He is the Founder and President of the Imam Ahmad Raza Academy, Director of Barkatur-Raza Publications and the recently launced publishing house Sufi Pages.
