About the Book:
The Dhikr (remembrance) of Allah is not just an act of great virtue but is a requirement of religion. This Dhikr can be performed both silently and discretely, or (in excessively) aloud and openly, and either individually, or in a group.

As Muslims moved further away from the time of the best and better generations doubts about many permissible and established practices began to be entered into the hearts of the Muslim Umma'. One such doubt being spread was about the permissibility of performing Dhikr in groups and in a raised voice. Shaykh Abd al-Hay Lacknawi took note of this and prepared an Arabic treatise, which became renowned in both the sub continent and the Arab World, proving the permissibility of gathering and performing Dhikr in a raised voice.

Siyahatil Fikr Fil Jahr Bil Zikr, which is the original 'Arabic title of this current translation is one of the most popular and celebrated books written in the subject of Remembering Allah in groups or individually with a audible voice. Imam Lucknawi has done an excellent job in this book which has no equal even though Imam Suyuti wrote similar work where he focussed on just narrations but on this very work Imam Al-Lacknawi critically analyses the chains of narrations as well as explaining the meanings of those narrations. He also mentions the opinions of the righteous Salaf and the rulings regarding remembering Allah in an audible voice.

From the Translator's Introduction:
'This is a translation of only two sections of the original Arabic text. These two sections were selected after taking account the needs and aptitude of those who seek knowledge and truth solely through the English medium. It is hoped that these will suffice in consoling and reaffirming pious hearts that Dhikr Jahr is a permissible and authentic act. The other sections of the orignial work are of a scholastic nature and would only be relevant and of interest to those who would implicitly possess a good command of scholastic Arabic, thus rendering an English translation redundant.
Section 1 is a collection of 48 narrations related to the practice of raised Dhikr and its gatherings.
Section 2 is a detailed response to some of the objections that voiced against raised Dhikr.
Finally there is a brief summary and conclusion of the issues relating to Dhikr.'

About the Author:
He was born in Banda, India, on Tuesday 26 Zul Qada 1264 A.H, author of many famous works and a great scholar of his time. He was a descendant Sayyidina Abu Ayyub Ansari (R.A).
His predecessors emigrated from Madinah Munawwarah to Hirat, then to Lahore, Delhi and finally to Sihala and Firangi Mahal near Lucknow. Pious and noble scholars always inhabited this locality. Maulana Abdul Hayy began memorising the Noble Qur'an at the age of five. He was endowed with an outstanding memory from childhood to the extent that in his own words, he remembers the time when he was beaten at the age of three.

His students were completely satisfied with his methodology. Maulana Niímatullah, his teacher, used to extol his praises generously. Due to intense love for writing, he wrote more than a hundred books on many subjects like Arabic grammar, morphology, logic, Jurisprudence and Hadith etc. He was offered the post of Justice after his fatherís demise but refused, considering the dangers of the occupation and being content with the little possessions he had. He felt that had he accepted the offer, it would have impeded his teaching and writing career. One of the great bounties of Allah Taíala upon him was his excellence and compatibility with the science of Hadith and Jurisprudence of Hadith. He always chose a moderate, accepting the view of the Jurists as long as there was adequate proof from Quran and Hadith.

He passed away in Rabi ul Awwal 1304 A.H. at the young age of 39 and was buried in the graveyard of his ancestors. {READ MORE HERE}
