Allah says in His glorious book:
“So remember Me and I shall remember you…” (Qur`an 2:152)
The Sacred Messenger (PBUH) also declares that remembering Allah frequently carries
greater excellence with Allah than sacrificing one’s life as martyr for the sake
of Allah. That is why the spiritual leaders of Sufi orders also emphasize most of
all mentioning Allah’s name and bearing His remembrance in mind all the time.
The first seven chapters of the work contain prayers to Allah through His blessed
names. Wazaa`if (litanies) of each month of year, especially of Ramadan, will provide
with special radiance to the souls of seekers of Allah. Litanies for ridding one
of hardships (chapter six) are a special feature. The text comes from verses of
the Holy Qur`an, supplications of the Holy Messenger and classical Muslim mystics
which have been narrated by Abu Talib Makki in Qoot-ul-Quloob, Imam Ghazali in Ihya
Ulum-id-Din, Hafiz Mundhri in at-Targhib wat-Tarhib, Imam Nawawi in al-Adhkar, Khatib
Tabrizi in Mishkat-ul-Masabih and some other sufis in their books. They found the
litanies helpful for worshipper’s spiritual progress and peace of mind.
The last chapter has the names of Allah, and supplications to Allah through the
mediation of the Master of both the worlds, Muhammad (PBUH).
