Fifteen Whispered Prayers

Salaam And Greetings of Peace:

Below is a list of the Fifteen Whispered Prayers, taken from the Al-Sahifat al-Sajjadiyya, purportedly the oldest Islamic prayer manual and one of the most seminal works in Islamic Spirituality. It was composed by the Prophet’s great grandson, Imam Ali ibn al-Husayn, peace be unto him, who was also known as Zayn al-‘Abidin (the ornament of the worshippers). Shi’ite tradition considers the Sahifa a book worthy of the utmost veneration, ranking it behind only the Qur’an and Ali’s Nahj al-balagha.

Alhamdulillah! It is a blessing unrivaled in its sincerity, adoration and love, and well worth your time.

The Fifteen Whispered Prayers:

The Whispered Prayer of the Repenters
The Whispered Prayer of the Complainers
The Whispered Prayer of the Fearful

    Where have you been all my life!?

    The things that you share are amazing. This is amazing! I have tears in my eyes…. I was just so fearful yesterday of experiencing life once again after a long reclusion. (One year. Long enough in a modern world for a 20-something.)

    I need many of these prayers. Prayer of the repenter one moment, the prayer of the utterly lost and fearful the other moment… in all these prayers, never losing sight of Allah.

    How beautiful!

    Finding your blog and others like it is like a prayer answered.

  8. My prayers are with you also, dear Prophecy :) Thank you for the kind and generous words. Alhamdulillah!

    Ya Haqq!
