About The Book
Easy to read Arabic (Persian or the common Indo/Pak) Script is used so as to make it easier to read for non Arabic Speakers.
The universally accepted traditional prayers have a status beyond compare; because the prayers which Allah has revealed, either in the Quran or by inspiring them as a direct, first person communication from Allah, or by a hidden revelation, spoken by the Prophet or taught to some of his Companions, are by definition more acceptable to Allah:
Hence this collection of’ prayers compiled by Allamah Au bin Sultan Mohammad also known as Mullah Ali Qari . MullahAli Qari has said in his preface that if you read this compilation daily, it is very good. If that is not possible, then it should be read weekly, or monthly, or even once a year; and if even that is not possible then atleast once in a lifetime.
Previously this anthology was published with the ‘duas’ divided into seven days, for each day of the week. This division was not one which Mullah Ali Qari had done himself as is apparent from his words, but was done at some later stage.
As people, sometimes, are not able to read the entire collection of ‘duas’in seven days, this Al-Hizb-ul-Azam has been divided into 29 Manzils’, one for each day of the month. Every Manzil starts with the ‘Hamd’followed by the Durood’ and then other ‘duas’. The order has been changed, but nothing hns been added to, or removed from the origional text.
