Ratib Al-Attos



I want to ask about Ratib Al-Attos. What is that, function etc



wa `alaykum salam,

The Yemeni waliullah, al-Habib `Umar ibn `Abd al-Rahman al-`Attas is known for this Ratib, known as Ratib al-`Attas. A ratib is a compilation of recitations from the Holy Qur’an al-Karim and from the Holy Hadith and prayers on Sayyidina Muhammad (s) ,  which are voluntarily recited a certain specific number of times.  It is recited individually or communally, in melodious tones, usually in mosques but also in private homes. Such collections are inspired to the heart of the wali that compiled them.  Reciting a ratib regularly contains the immense blessings of reciting Qur’an, reciting hadith and praising the Prophet (s), including raising the station of the reciter.
