al-Hadrah al-Ihda ‘Ashariyyah

as-salamu ‘alaykum,

Habib Ahmad b. Muhammad al-Mihdar al-Husayni of Quwayrah, Hadramawt, was known for his detachment from the world and its affairs and for his unique love of the righteous, and in particular as-Sayyidah Khadijah and the remainder of the Ahl al-Bayt. Numerous incidents have been related regarding this, such as when he attempted to censure the khatib in Makkah for lengthening the sermon (which is contrary to the sunnah), and was thus chased until he sought refuge in the tomb of as-Sayyidah Khadijah. . . He despaired at the occupation many during his time had with the world and ammassing its riches and sought solace in remembering Allah and His messenger salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa alihi wa sallam and his family. His complilation of qasa’id sung on the 11th night of every month at his mosque, known as the “an-Nafhah al-‘Ambariyyah fi ‘l-Laylah al-Ihda ‘Ashariyyah“, also known as the Hadrah of Sayyidah Khadijah can be read here, thanks to as-Sayyid Jamal al-Layl: Download PDF
