The Khulasa Project

The Mughal Script Khulasa Project began in -the summer of 2011, with a group of brothers from the United Kingdom, who came together upon on the permission and instruction of Sayyidi al-Habib Umar bin Hafidh.
What is the Khulasa?
The book has been compiled by Sayyidi al-Habib Umar b. Muhammad b. Hafiz (may Allah Almighty elevate him). The text contains duas, invocations, litanies and qasa’id (spiritual odes) which are used in Tarim, Yemen. As a daily companion, the book is further read across the world by those who follow the Prophetic methodology and those who seek the closeness of Allah Almighty.

It is a book of Prophetic invocations that are read by millions of Muslims worldwide, to connect to Allah Almighty and the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi Wa Salaam)  from the beginning to the end of the day.

 

Why a Mughal Script Khulasa?
The current Khulasa was solely written in the Usmani script and appeals to those who are competent with Arabic. However, around the world a significant percentage of Muslims are unfamiliar with the Usmani script. In the West, a substantial proportion of the Muslims are from the Indian Subcontinent and are unaccustomed to the original script. For this reason, many Muslims across the world find it difficult to read the book in its current edition.
A Khulasa written in the Mughal Script would aid many Muslims and facilitate ease for them to read it in a more familiar style

 

Ijaza (Permission)
The Mughal Script Khulasa proposal was presented to al-Habib Umar bin Hafidh and he approved of the suggestion.
