Invocations from the Qur'an and Sunnah.
Compiled by Sa'id bin Wahf Al-Qahtani
Surely all praise is for Allah. We praise Him and seek His help. We seek His forgiveness and we seek refuge in Him from the evil of our own souls and from the wickedness of our deeds. Whomever He guides shall never go astray, and whomever He allows to stray shall never find guidance. I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, alone, Who has no partner, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger. May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him and upon his family and his Companions and upon those who follow them in piety until the Day of Judgment.
This book is an abridgement of my earlier work entitled, Ath-Thikr wad-Du'a wal-'Ilaj bir-Ruqa minal-Kitab was-Sunnah.
1Hisnul-Muslim min 'Athkaril-Kitab was- Sunnah, the seventeenth edition printed in the month of Jul-Qa'dah,1416H.
In order to make it small and easily portable, I have chosen only the section on words of remembrance for this abridgement. To achieve this, I only mentioned the text of the words of remembrance instead of the entire Hadith.
I also limited myself to mentioning only one or two references from the original book for each Hadith. Whoever would like to know about the Companion who related a particular Hadith, or more information about where it is recorded, should refer to the original work (mentioned above).
I ask Allah the Glorious, the Mighty, by His beautiful Names and by His sublime Attributes to accept this as having been done sincerely for His sake alone. I ask Him to bring me its benefits during my lifetime and after my death. May those who read it, those who print it, or have had any role in distributing it, benefit from it also. Surely He, the Glorified, is Capable of all things. May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet, Muhammad, and upon his family and Companions and whoever follows them in piety until the Day of Judgment.
