Dawrah 2012 – The Rawhah Sessions

BismiLlahir Rahmanir Rahim

wa salla Llah ‘ala sayyidina Muhammad wa alih wa sallam

We are pleased to bring to your attention that the Dawrah for this year has now begun, as of today (Sunday, 1st July). The rawhah sessions shall be a continuation of the study of Abu Talib al-Makki’s Qut al-Qulub (which Imam ‘Alawi b. ‘Ubaydi Llah b. al-Muhajir al-Husyani, ancestor of the Ba ‘Alawis was said to have studied with its author), in addition to readings of other spirituality-orientated books. This, as is customary, will be supplemented with a reading and explanation of a qasidah; this year, the poem chosen was one in which Imam ‘Abd ar-Rahman (b. ‘Ali b. Abi Bakr as-Sakran b. ‘Abd ar-Rahman as-Saqqaf Ba ‘Alawi) advised his student, ‘Abud. It is considered a succint summary of all that the traveller requires in his journey.

Thanks to ustadh Amin Buxton and his team (jazahum Allah khayran) who have made the Arabic and its translation available to the English-speaking audience: Download PDF

The Arabic recordings are being uploaded at the following link: Arabic Recordings

We shall attempt to make the translations available if possible, bi idhni ‘Llah.

Keep us in your duas. was-salam.
