Daily Litanies of Imam al-Haddad
Habib Abdallah bin Ali al-Haddad
Habib Abdallah bin Ali al-Haddad, from the progeny of the great Qutb Imam Abdallah bin Alawi al-Haddad, has composed the Daily Litanies of Imam al-Haddad. He was instructed by his father to compile a book, describing Imam al-Haddad’s invocations and method of worship of the day and night.
He provides a detailed guide to the manner of his waking up, the method of his ablution, his etiquette of going to the mosque and the Qur’anic suras that he recited in each prayer. The author has also included some of the litanies of Imam al-Haddad, to illustrate his method of recitation.
The author’s aim was to compile a manual that was practical and easy to follow for the general Muslim and provide them with a guideline that encompassed the remembrance of Allah throughout the day from morning till night. Furthermore, to preserve the way of his noble grandfather, Imam al-Haddad, whose remembrance and emulation would protect the Seeker in his beliefs and become a means to remain in their company in this world and the Hereafter.
