Dear Brothers and Sisters in Imaan, Assalamo Alaikum.
In the year 1995 some friends handed me a photocopy of an old slab, excavated somewhere in Delhi. It was an engraved prayer (DUA) to seek protection of Allah against the Shaitaan, Devil, Evils and Afflictions. On reading the slab’s photo copy, it flashed in to my mind that it must have been the compilation by some pious and learned scholar who arranged Quranic verses in a sequence and into a concise para, seeking the protection of Allah the Most High, the Supreme in His Glory, against evil consequence. It is a zakr and Du’a-prayer in an excellence, invoking the protection of the great Lord, the most merciful. I was so overwhelmed with the quick results of the Dua that with His Grace, I decided to share the blessings with my other Brothers and Sisters in Imaan. I with my firm conviction of belief and confidence, request you my dear Brothers and Sisters in Imaan to read this Zikr by Heart or keep it ready at hand during your hours of need, to obtain Allah’s protection against come seen and unseen enemies. May Allah the most Gracious and Merciful Lord of the Worlds lead you and your family and friends to His ultimate protection. So, Must it have been designed by Allah to have been Handed over the slab’s photocopy, as shown hereafter, and share it with others, for what could be better blessings than to share His Grace and Mercy with others. Your Brother-In-Imaan, ABDUL KARIM PAREKH Nagpur - 8 India Ph.:
