A Collection of Prayers & Invocations is a daily devotional that contains traditional litanies [wird] and supplications [du’as] from the Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah. It is a practical guide for the believer [mumin]. If the wayfarer [salik] sincerely applies its teachings he will traverse the stages of the path by his spiritual state so that for him knowledge is experience. The prayers and invocations in this manual have been transmitted by A’lahadrat Imam Ahmad Rida Khan al-Qadiri, and collated, with invocations, by Hujjat al-Islam Shaykh Hamid Rida Khan, al-Mufti al-A’zam Shaykh Mustafa Rida Khan, and al-Mufassir al-A’zam Shaykh Ibrahim Rida Khan “Jilani Miya.” May Allah have mercy on them all and fill their graves with light, amin.
This indispensible handbook is a translation of al-Wazifat al-Karimah by Mawlana Muhammad Kalim al-Qadiri and includes Arabic supplications with transliteration for easy recitation and memorization.
