This recording, titled “Al-Wird Ash-Shadhdhuliyyah”, is from Shaykh Muhammad Sa’id al-Jamal ar-Rifa’i.
It was recorded on a very cheap cassette player in his zawiyyah in 1978. To bring it to present students it has been meticulously cleaned, preserved, made digital and copied to a CD format.
He begins by leading Salat al-isha, then al-wird, which comprises reciting astafir allah 100 times, allahuma salli ala sayyidina muhammadan wa alihi wa salim 100 times, la illaha il’allah 100 times, and the as-salat al-mashishiyyah, also known as al-Wazifah Ibn Mashish. This is followed by a short dhikr allah.
