Daily Remembrances

December 20, 2022

Everything that exists — material or abstract — is in a state of Allah’s remembrance (dhikr). “And there is not a thing that does not glorify His praise, except you do not understand how.”  How can I choose to remain unresponsive to such a majestic cosmic chorus proclaiming Allah’s unicity?

What you may download above is a litany (wird) compiled by Shaykh Mokhtar Maghraoui, to be read daily in the morning and evening, and after each salah. It contains, almost entirely, remembrances (adhkar) and supplications (du‘a’) from the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم; a few selections from our earlier scholar-saints (in particular, four very meritorious prayers upon the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم); as well as some of Shaykh Mokhtar’s personal additions to cure diseases of the heart (qalb).

Additionally, you will find a litany (wird) for the blessed day of Friday and some suggested additional daily remembrances.

This particular litany (wird) was a foundational element of the in-person Suhba Fellowship Program in Istanbul, and now its successor, the global Suhba Online program. Students learn it gradually over the course of a year, incorporate it into their lives, and recite it communally in the online Weekly Remembrance Circle.

May Allah help us summon the sincerity, resolve and perseverance to make this litany (wird) our life-long companion. Our scholar-saints teach that the gift of constancy in Divine remembrance is the royal edict of a relationship of intimate- friendship (wilaya) with Allah. May we be of them, by His solicitous grace. Amīn.
