The Work of Day and Night: Suyuti's Collection of Prophetic Practices and Prayers

By: Suyuti, Jalal al-Din جلال الدين السيوطي


Language: English - Arabic


Imam Jalal al-Din al-Suyuti composed the "Work of Day and Night" as a guide to correct conduct and worship in accordance with the example of the Prophet and the Pious Predecessors. This book contains some of the most beautiful prayers in Islamic devotional literature, and Suyuti has provided guidance about nearly every situation that one is likely to encounter day-to-day. In it the reader will find: the prayers said upon awakening, before eating and when dressing; the acts carried out at various times of the day, and between prayers; and much else. A special section is dedicated to prayers that are recommended for reading at times of need due to their widely recognized protective qualities. "Work of Day and Night" is invaluable for learning the Sunnah of the Prophet and integrating it into one's life as Suyuti took great care to explain precisely how to perform each of the daily practices in accordance with the example of the Prophet Muhammad.

It is hoped that this bilingual volume will enable a wider English-speaking audience to access one of the treasures of traditional Islamic knowledge and practice, and that it will provide Muslim readers with a source of inspiration in everyday life. A selection of the most beautiful and useful prayers has been transliterated and included in an appendix so that all worshippers may benefit by reciting them- regardless of Arabic ability. There is also a glossary of the most important religious terms.
