Selected Supplications and Prayers – Including the Prayers for Victory (Hizb al-Nasr) of Imam Haddad and Imam Shadhili and the Prayer for the Oppressed (Dua al-Nasiri)
This is a collection of supplications and prayers, from great scholars of the Islamic tradition, that we recite regularly at SeekersHub Toronto (Toronto.SeekersHub.org). These supplications include the two powerful Prayers for Victory (Hizb al-Nasr), of Imam Abdullah bin Alawi al-Haddad and Imam Abu’l Hasan al-Shadhili; the Prayer for the Oppressed (Dua al-Nasiri, included here with Ayesha Bewley’s translation); and other supplications and prayers.
Allah Most High has promised, “Call upon Me and I will indeed answer you.” [Qur’an] The central adab of supplication is to, “Call upon Allah with complete certainty in His response,” as the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) reminded us. This response is in the way and time that Allah wills, but is a promise and guarantee for any sincere supplication made with presence of heart and neediness.
