A collection of Durūds on the Best of Allāhʼs Creation for acquiring the love of Rasulullāh ﷺ the removal of worries, calamities, fulfilling of needs and for barakah in ones life
This book of Salawāt / Durūd contains various selected Durūds from the blessed lips of Rasulullāh sallallāhu alayhi wasallam and the Awliyā Allāh, the saintly friends of Allāh.
Durūd should be read for the pleasure of Allāh and as a means of love, veneration and gratitude to Rasulullāh sallallahu alayhi wasallam. However Durūd is such a devotion that if a duā is made together with it, Allāh readily accepts that dua. Thus it has been a practice of the Awliya of Allāh to seek the help of Allāh in times of distress by combining Durūd with their duās.
Many of the Durūds in this book have been shown to these Awliyā through Ilhām (inspiration) or have been granted acceptance and approval in the court of Rasulullāh Sallallāhu alayhi wasallam and some Durūds have been taught by Rasulullāh Sallallāhu alayhi wasallam to these Awliyā for increasing their nisbat (spiritual connection) with him, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, or as a solution to various problems, difficulties and hardships they encountered in their lives. These pious servants of Allāh, after experiencing the barakah and benefits of these duruds began teaching them to their followers who also expereinced the barakah of these duruds in their lives.
Regular recital of these Durūds results in the reciter attaining a special love and bond with Rasulullāh sallallāhu alayhi wasallam and is also a means of removing poverty, difficulties, hardships, sicknesses, problems, worries and grief. To attain the full blessings of the Salawāt/DurŪds mentioned in this book they should be read as daily wird/wazīfa, either in the morning or the evening.

The Ship of Rescue for Those Who Take Shelter in Allah
Safinatun Naja li man ilallahil Taja
also known as: Al-Wazifah az-Zarruqiyyah
by Shaykh Ahmad Zarruq, Rahimahullah (The famous Shadhili Shaykh)
Translated by Ahmad ‘Ali Al ‘Adani
About the book
As Shaykh Ahmad Zarruq was present at the shrine of the Prophet, ﷺ he greeted the Prophet, ﷺ, who greeted him in return saying, “Peace be upon you, too, Ahmad. Recite to me your wazifah.” ‘I have many waza’if, Messenger of Allah,’ Zarruq said, so the Prophet, ﷺ, specified, “The one that begins with ‘Wa ilÁhukum ilÁhun wÁhid- Your God is one God.” At that time, the wazifah was longer than it is now, containing a greater number of Qur’anic ayat and Prophetic ahadith, so as Shaykh Zarruq was busy reciting it to the Prophet, ﷺ, he, ﷺ, said, “Leave out this and keep in that,” until the end was reached. According to Shaykh Barakat al-Hattab al-Makki, Zarruq said to the Prophet, ﷺ, ‘I have not given it any title, O Messenger of Allah,’ so he, ﷺ, said: “Call it Safina-tun-Naja li-Man Arada ilallahil-Laja” – The Ship of rescue for those who wish for shelter in Allah [The final title it is known by is a slightly different variant of that].

There are a few pages of Shaykh Qandusi’s biography at the beginning of the book, this short excerpt below is from the back cover:
The knower of Allah, Shaykh Muhammad b. al-Qasim al-Qandusi, was born in Algeria and later settled in Fez, Morocco. He was affiliated with the Qadiri and Nasiri Sufi orders. He lived a life of obscurity as an herbalist and calligrapher, having written the Supreme Name (Allah) in his large, unique script that remains to this day in the Moulay Idriss II mosque in Fez.

This is why we say that we supplicate to Allah through sending prayers upon the Beloved (peace be upon him). Its etiquette (adab) and reality (haqiqa) is for us to intend in our hearts whatever we wish of worldy or Afterworldly concerns and then invoke prayers upon the Prophet (peace be upon him). After that we do not need to explain our wants, for Allah Most High knows what is concealed in the chests. So if we divest ourselves from our deficient tongues and make the Prophet’s blessed tongue (peace be upon him) the intermediary (wasita) between us and Allah Most High – through sending prayers on the Prophet (peace be upon him) – then we will have firm grounding.In terms of the method of worldly ascension, Shaykh Qandusi writes:At the start of the New Year, consider how much you must spend upon your dependents [if you have dependents], or upon yourself [for the coming year]. Draw up a detailed list of all the things you will need and calculate their full cost and see if they will cost you one hundred (dirhams) or more or less. Leave nothing unaccounted for, not even the cost of water and salt. After calculating the sum total of dirhams you must spend, send an equal number of prayers [upon the Prophet (peace be upon him)]and later he states:What Allah seeks from us is propriety (adab), and that is why we say: For whatever you wish to purchase or sell, conduct the transaction first with Allah Most High by sending prayers upon the Prophet (peace be upon him). Any time you wish to purhcase a mount or a servant, or to buy or rent a home or an orchard or a store, preface your transaction [with prayers upon the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him)]. When your transaction is concluded make sure you bind it, then or later, with gratitude, expressed through prayers upon the Beloved (peace be upon him) just as you did at the beginning of your transaction. Do this, and Allah will put blessings for you in it.Shaykh Qandusi also employs the Abjad numerical system in which each letter of the Arabic alphabet is assigned a corresponding number. Based on this, he continues to advise us:This instruction also applies if a haughty tyrant transgresses against you, be he a bandit or unjust ruler, and pilfers your wealth. Do not turn your gaze toward him; speak to Allah instead concerning the issue, and give to Allah the value of what was taken from you, by sending prayers [upon the Prophet (peace be upon him)] in the number equal to [the monetary worth of what was taken] Do this, and Allah Most High will give you far better than what was stolen from you!Shaykh Qandusi advises us to send blessings upon the Prophet (peace be upon him), with the start of each year, each season, at the beginning of each lunar mansion and with special emphasis on the special months and nights throughout the year.
