The Precious Remembrance – Book Sample
THE PRECIOUS REMEMBRANCE
Originally this treatise was written by his own hand (may Allah have mercy upon him) and given as a gift by the muadhin (the one who calls the Muslims to the five daily prayers) of the Shaykh from the grand mosque in ‘Unayzah the noble brother ‘Abdur-Rahmaan bin Muhammad ar-Rays (may Allah reward him with good), to his eminence my father (may Allah protect him).
I was then fortunate enough to receive it several days after the passing of the Shaykh.
I was filled with great joy when I had obtained it so I sought Allah’s assistance and began to add the reference points for the Quranic verses and Prophetic narrations in the completed form (that is before you), so I ask Allah Most High to accept it sincerely and correctly.
This is considered one of the first works of the Shaykh (may Allah have mercy upon him) that was collected after his death and my collaboration of it was by way of the following methods:
Firstly: I based it on the chains of narrations and that was by tracing them back to some of their references but I did not go into great detail (for each narration associated with the supplication) fearing a lengthy treatise.
Secondly: I strove to check the authenticity of these supplications to the best of my ability, and I did not just rely on their authenticity alone but I also mentioned their source. I also tried to mention the source of these supplications that are found in the books of the people of knowledge such as Imam an-Nawawee’s al-Adhkaar and Ibn as-Sunee’s ’Amalul-Yawmi wal-Laylah, etc.
And perhaps the supplications contained herein whether it be two or more not reaching the level of being authentic fall under the category that the Shaykh (may Allah have mercy upon him) mentioned in his treatise entitled: Mustalahul-Hadeeth page 12 printed by the University of Muhammad bin Sa’ood whereas he said:
“So it has been clearly mentioned, meaning the weak narration, by a group of the People of Knowledge to have three conditions:
- First: That it is not extremely weak.
- Second: That the basis of the action that is mentioned in the weak narration establishes encouragement and admonition.
- Third: That it is not believed that the Prophet actually said it.
So based on this the benefit in mentioning (the weak narration) that contains encouragement will impel the soul to do the encouraged deed hoping to obtain by that the reward for it, then if he obtains the reward it will not harm his striving to worship nor will it deplete what was done from those things that are commanded (by Allah and His Messenger ),
while the benefit in mentioning (the weak narration) that contains admonition is to avert the soul from the horrific deed that causes one to fear falling into that (specific) punishment…”
Thirdly: I mentioned the benefits and effects of each supplication to the best of my ability observing brevity so as to compel and entice memorization of the text and steadfastness upon reciting them.
Fourthly: In this introduction I have placed a picture of the actual handwritten manuscript of these supplications penned by the Shaykh as you see it on page 7.
I have entitled this treatise ((The Precious Remembrance written by Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen: A comprehensive collection of morning and evening supplications)) and printed by the permission of Allah as an abridged pocket brochure.
The noble reader will notice that these supplications the Shaykh (may Allah have mercy upon him) wrote into a summarized treatise was not his everyday norm whenever he wrote, rather what was known of him (may Allah have mercy upon him) is that when he wrote a compilation he did so extensively and in detail.
And it seems that this writing was written urgently at the request of one of his students, and he clarified this when he wrote at the end of it (may Allah have mercy upon him): “This is what was made easy to write and I ask Allah Most High to cause it to be of benefit.” And Allah knows best.
With that said I want to highlight some glimpses of the Shaykh’s life (may Allah have mercy upon him):
He is the eminent Shaykh, the ‘Alaamah Aboo ‘Abdillah Muhammad bin Saalih bin Uthaymeen al-Waheebee at-Tameemee. He was born in the city of Unayzah on the 27th of Ramadhaan 1347 A.H. (Corresponding to March 9th 1929 C.E.)
He memorized the Noble Quraan under the tutelage of his grandfather Abdur-Rahmaan bin Sulaymaan Aali Daamagh (may Allah have mercy upon him) then he sought knowledge and became the pupil of ash- Shaykh, al-‘Alaamah ‘Abdur-Rahmaan bin Sa’dee and his eminence ash- Shaykh ‘Abdul-‘Azeez bin Baaz (may Allah Most High have mercy upon them both).
He began teaching in the main mosque in ‘Unayzah in the year 1371 A.H. then he assumed the imam position of the mosque after the death of his teacher ash-Shaykh ‘Abdur-Rahmaan as-Sa’dee. He also taught in the College of Sharee’ah (Islamic Law) and Usool-ud-Deen (Study of the basic principles of the Religion) in a branch of the University of Imam Muhammad bin Sa’ood located in al-Qaseem.
In addition to this he was a member of the Organization of Major Scholars of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and also gave several Islamic courses in the Two Sacred Mosques, and even participated in the Noble Quraan Radio Station.
The Shaykh left a vast amount of beneficial books and tapes and was always eager in spreading knowledge and he continued upon this until the very last days of his life, likewise the Shaykh was characterized with having noble
manners and being an imam of humility, being abstinent of materialistic things, generous, pious and always striving to do good deeds aimed for the hereafter and we regard him as he has been characterized and we do not elevate anyone higher than Allah.
He died (may Allah have mercy upon him and grant him His spacious gardens in paradise) on Wednesday the 15th of Shawaal, 1421 A.H. (Corresponding to January 10th 2001 C.E.) in the city of Jeddah and was buried in al-‘Adl cemetery in Makkah al-Mukarramah next to his Shaykh, his eminence ‘Abdul- Azeez bin Baaz (may Allah have mercy upon them both).
So ending this introduction I have placed a list of titles of those books that are filled with the Islamic supplications for the readers to further their research:
- “Al-Adhkaar” by Imaam an-Nawawee with the verification of Shaykh Saleem al-Hilaalee.
- “Al-Kalim at-Tayeeb” by Shaykh-ul-Islaam Ibn Taymeeyah with the verification of al-‘Alaamah al-Albaanee (may Allah have mercy upon him).
- “Al-Waabil-us-Sayeeb” by Imaam Ibn-ul-Qayyim with the verification of Shaykh Saleem al-Hilaalee.
- “Al-Wardu al-Musafa al-Mukhtaaru min Kalaamillahi Ta’ala wa Kalaami Sayeed-il-Abraari” by Imaam al-Malik as-Saalih ‘Abdul-Azeez bin ‘Abdir- Rahmaan al-Faysal (may Allah have mercy upon him).
- “Tuhfat-ul-Akhyaari min Kalaamillahi Ta’ala wa Kalaami Sayeed-il- Abraari” by his eminence al-‘Alaamah, ash-Shaykh ‘Abdil-‘Azeez Ibn Baaz (may Allah have mercy upon him).
- “Adhkaaru Tarfayn-an-Nahaar” by his eminence, ash-Shaykh, Dr. Bakr Ibn ‘Abdillah Aboo Zayd.
