The Cure of Satanic Whispering

ayatl-kursi5The Dawa ‘l-Waswas, (The Cure of Satanic Whispering) was composed by Shaykh Abdullahi ibn Fuduye’, The text was composed when the Shaykh was actively involved in the jihad against the Habe’ authorities of Hausaland. Although the text is concise, yet it establishes the key role that prayer plays in the spiritual Path of the servant. Shaykh Abdullahi utilizes the text as a commentary upon that enthralling prophetic tradition where the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace said:

“The prayer is the ascension of the believer.”

This means that through the correct performance of the prayer, the believer can experience the intoxicating event of the Night Journey (Israa) and Ascension (Mi`raaj) of the Best of creation, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. The prayer, thus in the opinion of Shaykh Abdullahi is the essence of the Spiritual Path and is the secret of the prophetic tradition:

“The prayer is the support of the religion.”
