40 Days Seclusion Procedure


Assalam o Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuhu

I want to know the procedure of performing the muraqabah in the right way. How we should perform the 40 days seclusion and what will be the niyya of the seclusion? I really want to perform the 40 days seclusion in the correct way. Another thing that I want to ask is that when I do dhikr and adaabs given to me. I do it with eyes close after asar and I feel that my forehead is lighting or burning up. I feel intensity in my forehead.Is this normal? Or am I doing something wrong?

Thank You so much. May Allah bless and Forgive us All for the honour of Sayyidina Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallim. Aameen


Wa `alaykum salam,

Please read at the NurMuhammad website for instructions on the proper way to perform muraqabah. Insha-Allah, heat on the forehead is good, so don’t worry. See this post for advice on your intention to do 40 days in seclusion.
