In a forthright letter to the Tijani community, Imam Shaykh Tijani Cisse gives advice and prayers to the faithful, amidst the Corona Virus epidemic:
As-Salamalaykum Family in Allah
Praise be to the one who said “And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me—indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of every supplicant when he calls upon Me […]” (Qur’an 2:186). And the best salutations to his Beloved and best of all creation who said in the noble Hadith … “Duaa is a weapon of a believer, a pillar of religion and a light of the heavens and the earth.” (Al-Hakim)
My prayers go out to everyone in the world during this time of trial and tribulation. My thoughts especially, to our brethren amongst the Muslims worldwide, and my Loving heart and special prayers to the followers of the Seal of Muhammadan Sainthood, Mawlaana Shaykh Ahmad al-Tijani (RA).
Brothers and sisters, do not take this time of pause, from life’s distractions, to use for idle play or useless activities. Allah has given us an opportunity to return to Him through concentrated prayer and focused worship. This trial from the most Merciful should be an excuse for anyone who wants to return to Allah.
Because of the uniqueness of this moment for humanity, I am authorizing all who believe, to use the prayer in this communication.
Also, I’m attaching to this letter a prayer that can be placed on the threshold inner-entrance doorway of your home.This is a prayer of protection for anyone that lives in your home. It is the prayer with the yellow mark at the bottom of the page.
Finally, I have attached here as well, a prayer that should be written on the backs of anyone that seeks protection from ANY epidemic or pandemic, by Allahs’ Power you will be protected from it’s harm.
May Allah hear and answer our prayers and may He give us Himself.
A beneficial work that has been narrated from the Seal, Mawlana (Shaykh Ahmad) al-Tijani (may Allah be pleased with him) for the removal of trials and dispelling of worries and grief.
You recite the following noble Qur’anic Ayah 58 from surah an-Najm, consistently for 10 days, morning and evening. along with the noble supplication, 1153 times.
لَيْسَ لَهَا مِنْ دُونِ اللهِ كَاشِفَ
(Transliteration) – Laysa lahaa min dunil-lahi kaashifatun
After each martabah [decimal place, i.e: after 1000, 100, 50 and 3], you recite the following noble supplication once:
اَللَّهُمَّ سَكِّنْ هَيْبَةَ صَدَمَةِ قَهْرِمَانِ الجَبَرُوتِ بَأَلْطَافِكَ الخَفِيَّةِ الوَارِدَةِ النَّازِلَةِ منْ بَابِ المَلَكُوتِ حَتَّى نَتَشَبَّثَ بِأَذْيَالِ لُطْفِكَ وَنَعْتَصِمُ بِكَ عَنْ إِنْزَالِ قُدْرَتِكَ يَا ذَا القُدْرَةِ الكَامِلَةِ وَالرَّحْمَةِ الشَّامِلَةِ يَا ذَا الجَلَالِ وَالإِكْرَامِ
(Transliteration) – Allahuma sakkin haybata sadamati qahramana al jabaruti bi altaafika al khafiyati al waaridati ann naazilati min babil malakuti hatta natashabatha bi azyali lutfika wa nahtasimu bika han inzaali kudratika ya zal kudrati al kaamilati wa rahmati ashaamilati ya zal jalali wal ikraami
O, Allah! Quell the frightening impact of the irresistible grasp of Jabrut through Your subtle, gentle mercies that emerge and descend from the Door of Malakut, such that we cling to the lowest portion of Your gentle mercy. And we seek protection from whatever of Your decree descends, o, Owner of complete power and all-encompassing mercy! O, Owner of majesty and generosity!
