‘Adaab –manner of Reading the Dalail ul Khayrat

Islamically everything in Shariah and Tariqah must have a isnad-Chain of Ijaaza-permission if its has any creditability of value. Like Hadith for example heard this from so-and-so who heard it from so-and-so all the way back to the Noble Prophet peace and blessings be upon him. The Quran, Hadith, Fiqh, Tariqah everything has Isnad to which it can be traced back to the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him. Otherwise people can say what they please, which of courses leads to people making things up and lying about our beloved Deen and of course this is how groups and divisions have appeared.

Ijaaz-Permission/Licence gives people the Authority to speech or act in the Deen. Its what many people in the western world would understand as a Diploma or Degree in Science link a Business or Medicine. Would you put you hands in a surgeon who has leant from books and never went to medical university. No is the answer the same is with the Deen of Allah, but more. Today many people are happily listen to our young brothers speech on the Deen who have never even learnt the basic of Islam.

The adab of reciting the dalalil ul Khayrat is like this you, start on Sunday Evening at Maghrib which is actually Monday in Islam and finish the following next Sunday Evening at Maghrib. this equals 8 days.

There are 8 parts to the book you must read a chapter a day.

Once you have finished the noble book completely the author humbly requests you send him Surah Fatiha as a Gift, this is done every time you fully complete reading the noble book.

So thus you can read this dua:

Start with Durood Shareef (salawat ala Rasul) any 1, 3, 11 times
I send the Thawab-Reward of all that I have read to
Sayyiduna Muhammad. peace be upon him,
Khailafa Rashidun:- Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, Hadhrat Ali karma wala wajhu
Imam Hasan wa Hussain, and all the Ahl-bayt
all the sahaha-ikram, ta'beeen, tab-ta'been,
All Anbiya, Shaheed, Saliheen,
the Master of Sufis Shaykh Abdul-Qadiri Jilani,
Shaykh Sidi Hamza Qadiri Boutchichi
and all the Awliya-allah, the 40 Abdals and the Qubt of this Zamaan.
And especially to Shaykh Jazuli the Author of the Dalail ul Khayrat

O Allah for their Sake I send this thawab-reward as Hadiyah-Gift upon them and my relatives. Help me for the sake of all there ibadaah, Ya Allah open my desires, my wises and hopes, and close all evil and pains in my life, and make ease my life and answer my prays by the secret of this noble Dalail ul Khayrat. Read Surah Al-fatiha finally send Surah al-faitha especially to Shaykh Jazuli the Author of the Dalail ul Khayrat. End with Durood Shareef (salawat ala Rasul) any 1, 3, 11 times

This is the best manner of asking anything from Allah and this Pious Saints, for they will be asking dua on your behalf if you have practice this method insha'allah.

Biography of the Author

Shaykh Abu Abdullah Muhammad Ibn Abderrahman Ibn Abi Bakr Ibn Suleiman Al-Jazouli Simlali al-Hassani al-Maghribi. Referred to his grandfather, he is called shortly Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Suleiman al-Jazuli. He belonged to the Berber tribe of Jazula which is settled in the Sus area of Morocco between the Atlantic and the Atlas Mountains. He studied locally and then travelled to Fés, the spiritual capital of Morocco, where he joined the famous Madrasat As-Saffareen in the Old Medina.

He took the Shadiliya Path from Shaykh Abu Abdullah Muhammad Ibn Amghar as-Saghir, one of the Ashraaf (descendents of the Prophet) of Bani Amghar village. When he became a Complete Shaykh, he headed towards the town of Safi where he gathered many disciples around him. Later on, Sidi al-Jazuli moved to Afwiral, a Sus village in Morocco, where he established his zawiya that became a centre of spirituality attracting 12665 disciples of his. His Tariqa was mainly based on making prayers upon Sayyiduna Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) as indicates his book: (Dalail ul Khayrat), which he published in Fés after spending forty years in Mecca, Medina Mounawara and Jerusalem. Dalail ul Khayrat or “ad-Dalil” as Moroccans prefer to call it, is considered as an exclusive source to make prayers upon Sayyiduna Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him), as well as a correct and innovative piece of work ever published on the issue.

In fact, the book of Dalail ul Khayrat was welcomed by the Ummah east and west. Many scholars concentrated to explain some of its meanings and benefits such as Sidi Suleiman al-Jamal Shafii, Sidi Hasan al-Adwi al-Misri, Sidi Abdelmajid Sharnubi who call his book (Manhaj A-Sa'adat), Sidi Muhammad al-Mahdi Ibn Ahmad al-Fasi who call his book (Matalia al-Masaraat Bijalaa Dalail Al Khayrat), and the famous Savant of Allah Sidi Ahmad Zaruk; the diciple of his Shaykh Sidi al-Jazuli (may Allah lighten his tomb).

Sidi Abu Abdullah Muhammad Al-Jazuli passed away in 870 AH and was buried inside his zawiya in Afwiral. Seventy-seven years after his death, his body was exhumed for removal to Marrakech and found to be uncorrupted. He became on of the Seven Men of Marrakech in addition to Sidi Kadi Ayaad, Sidi al-Abbas Sabti, Sidi Joussouf Ben Ali, Sidi Abdellaziz, Sidi Moul al-Ksour, and Sidi al-Soheyli (may Allah be pleased with all of them).

It is said that Sidi Muhammad Al-Jazuli once went on a journey, when in great need of water for making ablutions, he came upon a well but could not reach the water without a bucket and rope which he did not have. He became very worried. A young girl saw this and came to his assistance. She spat into the well whereupon the water rose to the top of its own accord. Seeing this miracle, he asked the girl " And how is that possible?" She replied "I was able to do this through my asking for blessings upon the Prophet, Allah's blessings and peace be upon the him." Having thus seen the benefit of asking for blessings upon the Prophet, Allah's blessings and peace be upon him, he decided to write Dalail ul Khayrat.
