Essentials of a Salik’s routine

20th Ramadhan 1427

(Before going for Asr)

On my first day, when Hadhrat Mufti Mohammad Taqi Usmani (may Allah preserve him) was going for asr prayer, I asked Hadhrat what should I do while being there (staying in Darul Uloom to be in the company of the Sheikh)?

Hadhrat db told me to do the following:
1. Excessive recitation of the Holy Quran
2. Performance of Tahajjud salah
3. Dhikir of dowazdah tasbeeh (zikir of our tareeqa)
