by Abdur-Rahman Ibn Yusuf (Author), Inam Uddin (Author)
God, Most High, says: Remember me and I will remember you (Qur an 40:60) We feel a sense of belonging, protection, and safety when we call out to Allah. When coupled with the powerful formulae of supplication (du'a) and remembrance (dhikr), this calling leads to a feeling of tranquility within our hearts and minds. With this goal in mind, Muslims scholars have compiled numerous books of supplications and remembrances from the Qur an and Prophetic Sunna. This is the third edition of Reflections of Pearls, a short compilation of Arabic supplications with their English translations and transliterations. Other sections include the etiquettes of supplicating, the 99 names of God, select blessings on the Messenger of God (saw), the virtues and excellences of certain chapters and verses of the Holy Qur an, and the method of performing the Istikhara, Ishraq, and other optional prayers. Both adults and children will enjoy and benefit from reading this book. * Carefully selected du'as for ease of learning * Arabic text set out in clear Arabic script withlucid English translation * Transliteration presented in an easy-to-read form
