About wird


As salam aleykoum wa rahmatullah wa barakatouh
Peace be upon our beloved Prophet and the Sheikhs of the Naqshbandi Order
Bismillah r rahman r rahim

I am a bit confused on the daily wird. Al hamdulillah, I just found the Guidebook from Mawlana Sheikh Hisham in Jakarta , and reading about the daily wird, but I don’t find the same informations than on other books or wirds I have been given, sometimes by Naqshbandi Murshid.
Main differences (for initiate wird) are :
– Reciting “Allahu Allahu Allahu Haqq” or not.
– Reciting “Astagfirullah” 20 or 70 times
– Many different versions of Idha
– Reciting salawat 300 times on Monday, Thursday and Friday or just 100 times.
For wird of prepared I noticed also one version with 500 Allah and another with 2500 Allah.
So what is the clear, official wird to perform?
Barakallahou fik.


wa `alaykum salam,

Shaykh Hisham has explained that “tariqah ma ra’ahu as-shaykh” which means that the tariqah is however the Shaykh sees it or defines it. In the Naqshbandi-Haqqani silsila, the Guidebook is what we follow, so there is no need to reference other shaykhs’ awrad for their students.
