Light for the Seeker: A Daily Litany of Forty Salawat & other Supplications

This is a litany of forty beautiful and moving salawat and other supplications by the Imam of the Azhar Mosque, Shaykh Salih al-Ja’fari, as well as thirty short supplementary salawat by his son Shaykh Abd al-Ghani (may Allah be pleased with them both). The shaykhs gave an ijaza (authorisation) for all Muslim men and women to recite them as part of their daily litany. These salawat be used in congregational gatherings of Remembrance, and as a personal daily litany.

One of the most unique features of this book is the inclusion of two poems of dua 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.

After the poems, the ninety-nine Names of Allah are included. Shaykh Salih recommended that people recite them twice a day, or at least once a day, to receive the blessings from each Name.

Then follows a selection of verses from the Qur’an for protection, which was used by the Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam) to cure a man from some type of spiritual harm that had befallen him. Shaykh Salih chose them as a daily litany of protection, which he called The Qur’anic Defences.

There are also eight beautiful supplications that begin with praise of Allah most great, also by Shaykh Salih.

The book is finally sealed with a single special salat by Shaykh Salih, whose words are meanings are all extracted from the noble Qur’an.
