Dala'il al-Khayrat

‘Dala’il al-Khayrat is unquestionably the most celebrated manual of Blessings on the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) in history. From the time of its authorship in fifteenth-century Fez by the Moroccan Shadhili sheikh Muhammad al-Jazuli (d. 870/1465), it swept throughout the whole of the Islamic World from North Africa to Indonesia. Countless millions of copies have been in circulation over the centuries with scarcely a well-to-do home in the Muslim heartlands being without one. Princes exchanged magnificent copies of it, commoners treasured it, pilgrims wore it at their side on the way to hajj, and baraka descended wherever it was recited, in accordance with the Divine Command: "Verily Allah and His angles bless the Prophet: O you who believe, bless him and send upon him benedictions" (Koran 33:56)’ [Source: http://www.dalail.co.uk]

A weekly recitation of a chapter (hizb) of the Dala'il al-Khayrat is held every Sunday morning in Oxford. If you are interested in attending, or would like to enquire further, please contact us, or register your interest at the Weekly Madrasa programme.

Copies of the Dala'il al-Khayrat are available at the Oxford Weekly Madrasa Programme, proceeds of which go to supporting the Madrasa Programme.
