“Removal of Distress through the Mention of the Names of the Noble Masters: the People of Badr and the Martyrs of Uhud” is the first English translation of a unique supplicatory poem known in Arabic as Jaliyat al-Kadr bi dhikr asma’ Ahl al-Badr wa Shuhada’ Uhud al-Sadat al-Ghurar. In it, Allah most High is beseeched for deliverance through the Prophet SallAllahu alaihi wasallam and his erstwhile companions who fought alongside him in the battles of Badr and Uhud.
This edition features the complete Arabic text edited by the late Sayyid Muhammad b. ‘Alawi al-Maliki that has been rendered in beautiful digital calligraphy. The facing English translation is by Shaykh Abdul Aziz Ahmed Fredericks of Glasgow (UK). The translation was redacted by Shaykh Amjad Mahmood of Birmingham (UK) using the commentary by Shaykh ‘Abdul Hadi Naja al-Abyari (d. 1888) entitled: “al-‘Ara’is al-Wadiha al-Gharar fi Sharh al-Manzuma al-Badriyya”.
As a bonus, the powerful Badr Khutbah of the contemporary sage Habib ‘Umar b. Hafiz is appended (Arabic source and English translation) together with a never-released-to-the-public calligraphy piece by the Turkish calligrapher Ali Hüsrevoglu that tells the story of the Battle of Badr. The book is closed with a late 18th century lai to the Battle of Badr by Amherst D. Tyssen.
All in all, this is a distinctive publication that should find a place in every household and our pricing reflects this intention. It is a supplication intended not just for the day of Badr or the day of Uhud but for all times and places. The author states about the poem:
Indeed, [the blessings of] reciting it has been tried and tested,
as has carrying it, in travel and residence.
The Benevolent has enriched many a destitute person by it
and mended many who have been broken.
May Allah most High accept this translation of Jaliyat al-Kadr and make it a cause of felicity in both abodes for everyone involved in its publication, and for all who recite and spread its recital.
…Masha’Allah another magnificent publication by Munaqib…just in time for reflecting upon the first valiant battle the Muslims fought, and in time to order for Eid giving…may all involved in this effort reap the sweetest of fruits, Ameen…
…due to the loving generosity of a special Mu’minah this speck will be ‘away’ in a Haram hotel for a few days so there will no ‘Juma’ah Mubarak’ post…
All good is from Allah Ta’ala whereas mistakes are from this humble speck. May Allah Ta’ala Bless all readers, bringing you all closer to Him and His Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam. May He accept our humble efforts and grant us the capacity to be good and do good. Ameen.
