Al-Wird ash-Shadhiliyya

The wird is the daily practice used in our tariqa using the prayer beads as counters. It is suggested by our guide that it be performed twice daily, particularly after Fajr and Maghrib prayers,in the dawn and at dusk. The litanies are as follows:

 

Say: ASTAGhFIR ALLÂH AL-‘ADhÎM (100x)

 

Then say: LÂ ILÂHA ILLÂ HÛ AL-HAYY AL-QAYYÛM WA ATÛBU ILAYH(1x)

Translation: I seek forgiveness in Allah the Almighty.
There is no god but Him, the Living, the Everlasting, and I turn to Him [in repentance].



Say: ALLÂHUMMA SALLI ‘ALÂ SAYYIDINÂ MUHAMMADIN WA ÂÂLIHI WA SAHBIHI WA SALLIM (100x)

Then say: MUHAMMADUN RASÛL-ULLÂH (1x)


Translation: Oh Allah send Your revelation upon our Master Muhammad and his family, and Your Peace.
Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.



Say: LÂ ILÂHA ILLA-LLÂH (100x)

Then say: MUHAMMADUN RASÛL-ULLÂH (1x)


Translation: There is no god but Allah.
Muhammad is His messenger.



Say: ALLÂH (100x)


(on Sundays and Thursdays, say Allah 500x or for 1/2 hour)

 

 

For the fourth portion of the Wird during Khalwah vigils, the beloved gazes at the Name.
