Instructions on Ibaadat


I am 32, muslim female, Alhamdulillah, i work full time, have four kids (3 to 7). Can you pls advise me. I try to daily read 6x prayers by the Naqsh prayer book.

Naqshbandi Awrad, Bashair Al Khayrat, Dua Al Huroof, Hizb Jalalahu, Hizb Wiqaya, Dua Khidr AS 1x, Durood Tunjina 1x, Surah Yasin, Surah Mulk
Mureed, Quddus, Nur, Fattah Mumin 100x
Ayat kareema 100x
Treasures of the Heaven dhikr 100x

– For these dhikr above i dont have any Ijaaza. Where do i get ijaaza from?
– I need help deciding if i should stop my dhikr above and concentrate on memorizing the quran/ tajweed OR start with dhikr nuffus (Abdul Qadir Jilani RA)? What would i need to do more at this point of my life?


wa `alaykum salam, wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

According to Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani there is general ijaza for any kind of dhikr, madh an-Nabi (s) or recitation, see the Post “Dhikr Ijaaza“.

To paraphrase what our master Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani says, “the most shining miracle is not to fly in the air, to change dust to gold or to heal the sick, but it is to be constant on obedience and worship.” Therefore if you have been constant on a certain dhikr “package”, however small or large, keep doing it, because you are already experiencing a big miracle.

And I advise myself and then you if you like to be wary of self-approval (`ujb), and self-praise (riya), for these are big dangers when one is highly occupied in worship. Keep 100x daily alhamdulillah wa ash-shukru lillah that Allah granted you the favor of worshipping Him and granted you to be from Ummat al-Habib (s), because that is not something we could achieve ourselves.

and Allah knows best,

Taher Siddiqui
