كتاب الأذكار

Book Description

The Book of Remembrances (Kitab al-Adhkar) is a collection of hadiths and supplications compiled by the Syrian jurist and theologian Imam al-Nawawi (1233–1277). It is one of the most popular and influential works of Islamic spirituality. It is widely used by Muslims worldwide for its guidance on the remembrance of Allah (dhikr) and supplication (du’a).

The book is divided into two parts. The first part deals with the remembrance of Allah, and includes hadiths on the importance of dhikr, the different types of dhikr, and the etiquette of dhikr. The second part deals with supplication and includes hadiths on the importance of du’a, the different types of du’a, and the etiquette of du’a.

The Book of Remembrances is a valuable resource for Muslims who are seeking to deepen their spiritual practice. It is a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the remembrance of Allah and supplication, and it is based on the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

Here are some of the benefits of reading and reciting the Book of Remembrances:

  • It increases one’s love for Allah.
  • It helps one to remember Allah throughout the day.
  • It brings peace and tranquility to the heart.

If you want to deepen your spiritual practice, I encourage you to read and recite the Book of Remembrances. It is a valuable resource that can help you to grow closer to Allah and to live a more meaningful life.

The following are some the famous books by the author (Imam al-Nawawi)

It covers topics such as how to wash before touching the Quran, how to stand when reciting the Quran, and how to avoid making mistakes when reciting the Quran.

  • Repentance and the Prohibition of Backbiting and Talebearing is a book by Imam al-Nawawi that discusses the importance of repentance and the prohibition of backbiting and talebearing. Repentance is the act of turning back to Allah and seeking His forgiveness. Backbiting is the act of talking about someone behind their back in a negative way. Talebearing is the act of carrying news about someone to someone else in a way that is harmful to the person being talked about.

  • Guarding the Tongue is a book by Imam al-Nawawi that discusses the importance of controlling one’s tongue. The tongue is a powerful tool that can be used for good or for evil. It is essential to use one’s tongue in a way that is pleasing to Allah.

The introduction discusses the importance of hadith, the criteria for hadith authenticity, and the methodology of hadith criticism. The introduction also includes a discussion of the life of Imam Muslim, the compiler of Sahih Muslim.
