Prophet’s names, Peace be upon him


I read (in Annemarie Schimmel’s book on veneration of Prophet(S)) about reciting Prophet’s (S) names 11 times between Maghrib and Isha and that gives increase in mildness and knowledge, or 12 times after Isha for guaranteed entry into Heaven with Rasulullah sallalahu alayhi wa sallam.
Can you confirm/recommend any of these or similar please?

Also, I’d like to do 10 thousand Laillaha illahla’s, daily (if I find I have time?) Is this ok?

Also, I do the khatm at home, thurs night. Told by Maulana to do it, but am always embarrased as neighbours can hear. There’s a room in town only £15, what do you think of doing there? If so, is there charity money/grants that you may know of available in UK (if aquainted with here) to have room all the time as community centre (that way it would be clean/carpeted etc for the zikr at least)


wa `alaykum salam,

Our daily recitation of Dala’il al-Khayrat includes the recitation of the names of the Holy Prophet (upon him blessings and peace).

Mawlana Shaykh Hisham recommends regular recitation of the minimal number over irregular recitation of a great number but there is permission to do 10 thousand.

If neighbors are disturbed, you can do dhikr silently as Mawlana Shaykh Hisham showed recently.
