Fortress of the Muslim, Invocations from the Quran & Sunnah is a very beautiful booklet which consists of many authentic Dua’s (supplications) for a Muslim to supplicate on a daily basis and on specific occasions.
This book is an abridgment of the Shaikh’s earlier work entitled: الذكر والدعاء والعلاج بالرقى من الكتاب والسنة. Az-Zikr wad du’a wal ‘ilaaj birruqa minal kitaab was-sunnah. In order to make it small and easily portable, he has chosen the section on words of remembrance only.
Alḥamdulillāh, this edition of ‘Fortress of the Muslim’ is the first of its kind with the following notable features:
- The Text and Translation have been edited by comparing the Original Arabic version with its earlier translations by Abū Ṣafwān Farīd ‘Abdul Wāḥid Haibatān (edited by www.fatwa-online.com) and by Darussalām (KSA) in English and of Ḥāfiẓ Ṣalāḥuddīn Yūsuf in Urdu, thereby making this work a close rendering of the Original.
- The Transliteration has been greatly improved to assist proper pronunciation of Arabic.
- The Arabic content has been presented in the Indo-Pak script which makes it easy reading for all.
- A few Du’ās and words of remembrance that the author Shaikh Al-Qaḥṭānī included in this work have been found to have certain weaknesses in them by Ḥadīth The ruling on these narrations has been cited accordingly in their place of occurence.
