About the book: Gatherings of Illumination in Sending Blessings upon the Best of Creation (Majalis al-Nur fi Salati ala al-Rasul) is a rich compilation of some of the most beautiful supplications, litanies, and odes (qasidas) presented in Arabic script, transliteration, and English translation. Included in this book are: The Prayers of the Lovers (a set of 34 powerful prayers upon the Prophet PBUH), Supplications of Visitation in Madina, the Latifiyya Supplication, and Shaykh Shadhili‘s Litany of Victory. This book also offers a glimpse into the works of the many female Islamic scholars who have been pivotal to a women’s revival in Islamic spiritually and scholarship in the past decades. The author, Ustadha Samar al-Asha, is one of the few contemporary women hadith transmitters in the world who is also a scholar of Qur’anic recitation with mastery in the ten canonical readings. She is also distinguished for her written contributions to the fields of Qur’anic and Hadith sciences. This book is essential for the thirsty soul and the ailing heart whose cure lies in the remembrance (dhikr) of the Divine.
