    As-Salaamu `alaykum. Jazakullah khayr for this beautiful website mashallah `alayk.
    Do you have a PDF of Kitab Al-Wird without the footnotes? Basically, what I’m hoping to print is a smaller size print of the wird when traveling.

    If you have the time, check out my website which is devoted to the intersection of land, food, health, and Islam. http://www.tayibfarms.com
