Hisn al-Muslim - Sa'id bin Ali bin Wahf Al-Qahtani

From The Author: Sa`id b. `Ali b. Wahf al-Qahtani - Safar, 1409H

Surely all praise is for Allah. We praise Him, seek His help, and ask His forgiveness. We seek refuge in Him from the evil of our own souls and from the wickedness of our deeds. Whomever He guides then nothing can make him lost, and whomever He makes lost then nothing can guide him. I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, alone, Who has no partner, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger. May Allah send prayers upon him and upon his family and his Companions and those who follow them in piety until the Day of Judgement and may He send copius peace (upon them). To proceed:

This is an abridgement that I have abridged from my earlier work entitled "Ath-Thikr wad-Dua wal-Ilaj bir-Ruqa minal-kitab was-Sunnah". I have abridged in it the section on words of remembrance (i.e. dhikr) in order to make it easy to carry in travels.

I have confined to only the text of the words of remembrance. I also have sufficed in referencing it by mentioning only one or two sources from the original work. Whoever would like to know about the Companion or more about the reference information should refer to the original work.

I ask Allah, mighty and glorious, by His beautiful names and by His sublime attributes to make this sincere for his noble countenance and to benefit me with it during my life and after my death and to benefit with it those who read it or print it or is a cause of distributing it. Verily He, glorified is He, is the patron of that and capable of it. May Allah send prayers upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon his family and Companions and whoever follows them in piety until the Day of Judgement.
