The reward of remembrance of Allah (dhikr) is the facilitation (tawfiq) of dhikr itself.  And Allah, most High, acknowledges this action of of His slave.

Dhikr removes heedlessness.

The method of dhikr for the novice seeker is the vocal repetition of the Holy-name (ism-e-dhat). For the moderately advanced (mutawassit) it is the contemplation (tasawwur) of this by heart (qalb). And for the graduate (muntahi) seeker it is the perpetual following of the commands of Shariah as though they are his instinctive nature.

    What is Munajat e Mabool (Saeedi) and zamimajat?

    It is the edition of Hakim al-Umma’s Munajat e Maqbool published by H. M. Saeed Company, Pakistan chowk, Karachi.

    It has additional supplements attached to it. They were complied by followers of Shaykh Shah Wasiullah sahib (Allah have mercy on him).

    One of the supplement is Ahzab tahzib un nafus (The sections on disciplining of the lower self). It is succinct but comprehensive discussion of major spiritual conditions arranged in seven sections to be read daily like a wird.

    Alhumdulillah, it is very beneficial.

    1. I was wondering what those were.

    2. Did the followers of Shah Wasiullah sahib write the supplements, or did they only compile them from Shah Wasiullah sahib’s writings?

    1. They are,
    a. Salasil arba
    b. Muktasar halaat mashaikh Chishtiya Sabiriya
    c. Katam e khawajagan
    d. Ahzab tahzib un nafoos
    e. Al-tawassul wa al-tasalsul
    f. Munajat
    g. Mutafareq ma’molat
