Al-Hizb al-A’zam is a beautifully organized and comprehensive collection of invocations drawn from the Qur’an and Prophetic Sunna. Its wide range leaves uncovered hardly any area of worldly and otherworldly concern, and a complete reading might well put before Allah just about everything one would need in both this life and the next.

This work’s acceptance is plainly visible in the multitudes of devotees who recite it regularly around the world. A lot of attention has been paid to it, from commentaries and translations to abridgements and rearrangements.

  • While the basic design emulates the classical Arabic manuscript style, a few modern typographical touches have been added to this edition. In addition to page numbers at the bottom, marginal heads are included to guide the reader. These heads include the number of the section and names of the days in Arabic and English to facilitate easy navigation for non-Arabic speakers. Since the author advises to complete the litany over several days if doing so is not possible each day, each of the seven sections also include halfway markers to break it down further.
  • To facilitate pauses during recitation, punctuation marks have been added within the text. Ornaments are used for verse endings in Qur’anic invocations and for where larger entries can be divided into separate invocations. Commas suggest pauses that fit with the length, rhyme, rhythm, and meaning of each invocation.
  • The text of this edition is primarily based on that of the Indian editions, and has been compared (and emended where deemed necessary) with several manuscripts from around the world
  • To achieve a more balanced division of the seven sections of the book, the Saturday to Tuesday sections follow those found in the majority of manuscripts, while the remaining sections follow the Indian editions.
  • The invocations are fully referenced in an appendix along with a bibliography of the print and manuscript copies used.
  • A traditional license of transmission (ijaza) to the author is included.
  • A ribbon is included to bookmark a page.

Following the faux leather deluxe editions of the book, this is now the smaller pocket-size black and white edition but still in hardback.

Review of the illuminated edition

The Al-Hizb al-A‘zam wa ’l-Wird al-Afkham of Mulla ‘Ali al-Qari is, as the name rightly suggests, a supremely beautiful and beneficial litany of supplications from the Qur’an and hadith. It encompasses most, if not all, of the best known and loved prayers of Muslims, divided into convenient 15 to 30 minute sessions for each day of the week. It would be impossible to overstate how important these prayers can be to a person’s devotion life. White Thread Press has now published it in a design and book form that is worthy of its content. I know of no more beautiful book published in the twenty-first century—it is the equal of Nuh Keller’s edition of Dalail al-Khayrat, and TJ Winter’s edition of the Burda.

This is a book of immense benefit. Every Muslim would greatly benefit from reading and studying it. I have myself started to read it, and all praise is for Allah.

Mulla ‘Ali ibn Sultan Muhammad al-Qari

Mulla ‘Ali ibn Sultan Muhammad al-Qari, more popularly known as Mulla ‘Ali al-Qari, was an ascetic, hadith scholar, jurist, theologian, exegete, heresiographer, calligrapher, hajj specialist, philologist, logician and author of what has been hailed as the most comprehensive Arabic commentary on the Mishkat al-Masabih, entitled Mirqat al-Mafatih.

He is also famous for his commentary on Al-Fiqh al-Akbar, called Minah al-Rawd al-Azhar (Gifts of the Blooming Gardens). Qari was born in Herat, Afghanistan, where he received his primary years of Islamic education. Thereafter, he moved to Makka, where he studied under numerous scholars, including Shaykh Ahmad ibn Hajar al-Haytami al-Makki and Qutb al-Din al-Hanafi. He was called Al-Qari, “The Reciter,” because of his mastery of the science of Qur’anic recitation. Mulla ‘Ali al-Qari remained in Makka, where he taught until his death in 1014/1606. His written works include a two-volume commentary on Qadi ‘Iyad’s Al-Shifa’ (The Cure); and a two-volume commentary on Imam Ghazali’s abridgment of the Ihya’ ‘Ulum al-Din (The Revival of the Religious Sciences), entitled ‘Ayn al-’Ilm wa Zayn al-Hilm (The Spring of Knowledge and the Adornment of Understanding).

All encompassing dhikr

This kitab is perfect for the needs of every Muslim man and woman in this world and the next.
Reciting the sections or even a page daily with focus and sincerity you will feel the benefits of it within yourself. You feel lighter and consciously aware of the Most High.
I came across this on YouTube at a time in my life where I was truly struggling.
I used to listen to it daily. The urge to read it for myself became stronger over the weeks. Alhamdulillah this has to be the most spiritually beneficial purchase I have made in a long time.

Also the size is perfect to take with you anywhere you go.
Good quality hardback and readability is excellent too.

The perfect companion

Purchased this to take to Umrah along with a few other resources. Alhamdulilah, this proved to be one of the best companions for such a trip.

A lot of consideration has gone into facilitating readability to the point where I found it reasonably easy to review this during tawaf.

It was greatly appreciated during blessed moments and provided a single location for those deep, meaningful duas and a comprehensive coverage of praises, Salat and salam and prayers for all needs.
