The Muhammadan Litanies is a collection of seventy invocations of prayer upon the Prophet Muhammad, Allah bless him and give him peace, starting with prayers taught by the Prophet himself, followed by prayers transmitted by his Household (Ahl al-Bayt) and Companions, and prayers from the early generations (Salaf) and the famous-and not so famous-saints and knowers of Allah and His Beloved, Allah bless him and give him peace. Each prayer is followed by a description of its source and merits, and-for the prayers of the Gnostics-a description of the saint from whom it was taken, where the author received it or read it, and a discussion on its unique properties (khawwas) and the purposes or intentions for which it can be read. The Muhammadan Litanies is meant to be read as a daily or weekly litany, though each prayer can also be read as a standalone prayer either in unlimited number or for specific numbers. The spiritual power of these prayers upon the Prophet, Allah bless him and give him peace, is palpable to anyone reads them just once, so how much more purifying, uplifting, and spiritually edifying they will be for the one who takes them as a regular litany through each day of the week, or adopts a few as a part of his or her daily invocations and remembrance! The majority of this work comes from Shaykh Yusuf al-Nabahani's famed Afdal al-salawat 'ala Sayyid al-Sadat, though I have also made use of al-Nabahani's larger work Sa'dat al-darayn fi al-salat 'ala Sayyid al-Kawnayn, as well as his Jami' al-salawat.
