Dala’il al-Khayrat is unquestionably the most celebrated manual of Blessings (salat) on the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) in history. From the time of its authorship in fifteenth-century Fez by the Moroccan Shadhili sheikh Muhammad al-Jazuli (d. 870/1465), it swept throughout the whole of the Islamic World from North Africa to Indonesia. Countless millions of copies have been in circulation over the centuries with scarcely a well-to-do home in the Muslim heartlands being without one. Princes exchanged magnificent copies of it, commoners treasured it, pilgrims wore it at their side on the way to hajj, and baraka descended wherever it was recited, in accordance with the Divine command in Surah Ahzab [33;56]:
Verily Allah and His angels bless the Prophet, O you who believe bless him and pray him peace.
The book is divided into chapters to be read daily and it continues to be recited throughout the world.
This edition is a culmination of a project to print the most authentic edition of this valuable work – see www.dalail.co.uk for more details.
