Permission for Jawharat al-Kamaal


I found that Jawharat al Kamaal originated from Prophet (SM) who gave it to Sidi Ahmad in a wakeful state. This has now several versions. As it originated from Tijani Sufi Order, they ask that only mureeds of that order may recite it, and if anyone else recites it without their permission, harm may be caused to them.

Secondly, I have never heard before that reciting salawat might cause harm to any human beings. So, what must be believed? Is it not confusing?

Was salam


Shaykh Fakhruddin Owaisi al-Tijani replies:

Wa Alaykum as-Salam,

There is no harm in any form of Salawat.

However, some Khass forms of Salawat are very heavy on the soul, and therefore require the Idhn (permission) of a complete Spiritual Master to recite them.

If an uninitiated person recites them, he may not be able to handle their heaviness.

We have personally seen this.

Wad-khulu ‘l-Buyuta min Abwabiha…{enter the houses through their doors}

Our Nabi (SAW) had the Idhn to carry the Quran (alam nash-rah laka  sadrak), and we have it through him….other than that, human beings would have perished by the recitation of even one Ayah of the Sacred Kalam that can blow mountains asunder.
