Nur Sacred Science Publications Presents: Gatherings of Illumination
Gatherings of Illumination in Sending Blessings upon the Best of Creation

“Truly gatherings of sending prayers upon the Prophet PBUH are gardens of paradise and sources of purification for hearts that long for their beloved PBUH. Among them is this noble assembly compiled by the esteemed scholar, Ustadha Samar al-Asha, a lover of the Messenger of God and a servant of his sira and sunna. I ask God for divine openings for the people of this gathering and for those who assemble and attend this. Amin!”-Habib Ali al-Jifri

Gatherings of Illumination in Sending Blessings upon the Best of Creation (Majalis al-Nur fi Salati ala al-Rasul) is a rich compilation of some of the most beautiful supplications, litanies, and odes (qasidas) presented in Arabic script, transliteration, and English translation. Included in this book are: The Prayers of the Lovers (a set of 34 powerful prayers upon the Prophet PBUH), Supplications of Visitation to the Sacred Precint in Madina, the Latifiyya Supplication, and Shaykh Shadhili’s Litany of Victory. This book also offers a glimpse into the works of the many female Islamic scholars who have been pivotal to a women’s revival in Islamic spiritually and scholarship in the past decades. The author, Ustadha Samar al-Asha, is one of the few contemporary women hadith transmitters in the world who is also a scholar of Qur’anic recitation with mastery in the ten canonical readings. She is also distinguished for her written contributions to the fields of Qur’anic and Hadith sciences. This book is essential for the thirsty soul and the ailing heart whose cure lies in the remembrance (dhikr) of the Divine.

Loving The Prophet – Shaykh Salek bin Siddina – Part 1 of 2

“Say to them: If you love God, follow (and love and honor) me, and God will love you” Surah Al Imran; ayah 31

“None of you believes until he loves me more than he loves his children, his parents, and all people.” Hadith (Bukhari and Muslim)

“None of you believes until he loves me more than he loves himself.” Hadith (Bukhari)

The above-mentioned ayah from the Quran tells us if we, as believers truly love Allah, then we also need to love His last and final messenger, Sayyidna Muhammad (peace and prayers be upon him). As we can see, loving the Prophet, peace be upon him, opens the door for love to the Divine. Yet, is easy for us to claim love for Allah’s Beloved but putting it into practice is an entirely different affair.

Also, in order to complete our faith, we must love the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, to the extent that he is dearer to us than those around us as well as our own selves, as mentioned in the above hadiths. Having said this, how do we, as believers extend our faith from more than a verbal declaration to actual existence in our hearts such that he is the most beloved creation of Allah to us?

The aim of the class is to provide guidelines for what it truly means to love Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, and how to attain this love, a love that will, God willingly, complete our faith and serve as a door to the Almighty.

This class was recorded on October 8, 2011 in Hayward, California.
