About the Book

This book contains excerpts relating to the Holy month of Ramadan from two colossal works of the Noble saints of the Islamic tradition, viz.

“AI-Ghunya li-Taalibi Tareeq ai-Haqq” or Sufficient Provision for Seekers of the Path of Truth of Hazrat Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani (may Allah be pleased with him) and “Kashf-ui-Mahjoob” by Hazrat AbuI Hasan Syed Ali bin Uthman Hujweri (may Allah be pleased with him). The intent of this humble effort is to both inspire the reader as well as provide preliminary information regarding the basics tenets of fasting. The topics of jurisprudence rulings according to the Hanafi School of Thought related to fasting have been taken from the famous text “Noor-ul ldaah” by AIlama Hasan bin ‘Ammaar Shurumbulaali (may Allah have mercy on him) and “Bahaar-e-Shariat” by Maulana Amjad Ali A’zami (may Allah have mercy on him).  The last section of the book contains prayers that are pertinent to this Holy month, especially those relating to the special nights of the last ten days, taken from the famous “Sham-e-Shabistaan-e-Raza” of A’laa Hazrat Ahmed Raza Khan Barelvi (may Allah be pleased with him).
