A Handbook of Accepted Prayers
This book includes:
- 'The Du’ā’ Framework: the what, the why, the when and the how of du’ā’.
- More than 200 of the most beautiful du’ā’s related to and to help manage each of the 26 spiritual diseases.
- A glossary of more than 100 emotions, as another way for the reader to navigate directly to those du’ā’s that will be of most benefit inshaAllah.
- Each du’ā’ is drawn and fully referenced from Qur’anic verses and authentic ahādīth.
Unhealthy addictions and depression are widespread: some of us find the uncertainty and emotional darkness eating away at us. 700 years ago, a diligent Muslim scholar told of a cost-free, universal psychotherapeutic cure, writing: “Happiness comes with a sincere du’ā’.” He was Al-Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah (RA); his teacher was Ibn Taymiyyah (RA). Riding on the coat-tails of our pious predecessors, we too seek routes to accepted prayers and eternal reward within the tradition of the Holy Qur’ān and authentic ahādīth (Prophetic sayings).
This book builds on our debut ‘A Handbook of Spiritual Medicine’ and isn’t simply a compilation of recommended du’ā’s. Instead it is a carefully considered framework that aligns our emotions with the most beautiful du’ā’s, all of which have a profound constructive purpose: the aim is to transport us smilingly and with noblest etiquette towards the ma’arifat (higher knowledge of Allāh swt) and istiqāmah (steadfastness) that every Muslim seeks, deep down.
