Product Description

Paperback - 82 pages                               Revised & Edited with Notes by Gibril Fouad al-Haddad

Written by one of the most celebrated and prolific scholars of the Islamic civilisation, this treatise was written in response to a questioner in regards to remembering God (dhikr) aloud and in a group. In his response, al-Suyuti responds citing twenty five Prophetic traditions that in his estimation, not only justify collective dhikr, but highly recommend it. 


Building on Imam al-Suyuti's authoritative account, the accompanying appendices and running commentary by Shaykh Gibril Haddad make this the ultimate reference on the subject of loud dhikr for the Muslim public.---Muhammad Afifi al-Akiti, Fellow of the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, University of Oxford


Imam al-Suyuti is one of the towering landmarks of Islamic scholarship. This fatwa from a famous Qur'anic exegete, a leading authority in all the Qur'anic sciences, traditionist, jurisprudent, grammarian and historian, given with his characteristic lucidity and authority, obviates the need to look for more on the same subject.---Mostafa al-Badawi, author of Sufi Sage of Arabia: Abdallah ibn Alawi al-Haddad

An immense contribution. This timeless fatwa brings traditional scholarly authority of the highest degree and removes dangerous misconceptions about the centrality and universal benefit of the collective remembrance of God as a standing Sunna of worship in the Muslim community. Al-Suyuti's pronouncement on this matter is essential for our community to grow and to develop spiritually by removing the dros of ignorance in the name of Islam that blocks access to the divine. Any Muslim who may have doubts on this matter should hold firmly to the category.---
Umar Faruq Abdallah, author of A Muslim in Victorian America: The Life of Alexander Russell Webb
