A collection of seventy prayers upon the Prophet Muhammad in Arabic and English along with commentary on their metaphysical and spiritual meanings.
The Muhammadan Litanies is a unique collection of seventy prayers upon the Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace) for daily and weekly use, starting with prayers taught by the Prophet himself, followed by prayers transmitted by his Household (Ahl al-Bayt) and Companions, and prayers from the early generations (Salaf) and the famous—and not so famous—saints and knowers of Allah and His Beloved. Each prayer is followed by a description of its source and its merits, and—for the prayers of the gnostics—a description of the saint from whom it was taken, where the author received it or read it, and a discussion on its unique properties (khawwas), the purposes or intentions for which it can be read, and its metaphysical meanings.
