Recitation vs supplication


A seeker requested permission to recite a famous litany of a pious sufi master as a regular wird.

The Shaykh replied, ‘The litany is superb. It can be recited if your daily schedule allows.

In addition, supplicate to Allah asking for the sincerity (ikhlas), truthfulness (sidiq) and humility (tawadhu) that the pious Shaykh (Allah have mercy on him) had in his heart that made these words of supplication so effective.’
