Imam Al-Ghazali (may God's mercy be on him) wrote in his book The Beginning of Guidance:

You should not neglect your time or use it haphazardly; on the contrary you should bring yourself to account, structure your litanies and other practices during each day and night, and assign to each period a fixed and specific function. This is how to bring out the spiritual blessing (baraka) in each period. But if you leave yourself adrift, aimlessly wandering as cattle do, not knowing how to occupy yourself at every moment, your time will be lost. It is nothing other than your life, and your life is the capital that you make use of to reach perpetual felicity in the proximity of God the Exalted. Each of your breaths is a priceless jewel, since each of them is irreplaceable and, one gone, can never be retrieved. Do not be like the deceived fools who are joyous because each day their wealth increases while their life shortens. What good is an increase in wealth when life grows ever shorter? Therefore be joyous only for an increase in knowledge or in good works, for they are your two companions who will accompany you in your grave when your family, wealth, children, and friends stay behind.


Abdallah Ibn Alawi al-Haddad




Abdallah ibn Alawi al-Haddad Abdullah ibn Alawi al-Haddad was born in Yemen in 1044 AH (1634 CE). He authored several books in the area of Sufism as well as books of dhikr such as the Ratib al-Haddad and Wird al-Lateef. In spite of being a major source of reference among the Sunni Muslims (especially among Sufis), only recently have his books begun to receive attention and publication in the English-speaking world. Imam al-Haddad died in his home in al-Hawi, Tarim on Monday night 7th or 8th Dhu al-Qi'dah, 1132 AH (1720 C.E.) and buried at Zanbal cemetery in Tarim.

"I do recommend everyone to have a copy"

A concise and well written book about the daily litanies , The book is small and could be read rather quickly. The translation is amazing and I feel a great amount of time was put into this book. Regarding reading this book, anyone can read it. However, to my knowledge to read the arabic on a daily basis one has to have Ijaza (Permission) from a Shaykh. This permission was passed down from scholar to scholar starting from Imam Haddad.I do recommend everyone to have a copy because it is simply beautiful and one can definitely benefit from it.
