A Commentary on the Names of The Prophet Muhammad from Imam al-Jazuli's Dala'il al-Khayrat
Compilations of the Names of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) have been a tradition of scholars for centuries: Qāḍī Abū Bakr Ibn al-ʿArabī relates in his commentary on Kitāb al-Shamāʾil, the great Ḥadīth compilation of Imam Tirmidhī, that some Sufis have said that the Prophet has a thousand names.
Idris Watts brings together in this work, the introduction of the Dalāʾil al-Khayrāt and the Names as it’s recited in Fez today. In Part Two of the book he has provided, for the first time in the English Language, a short commentary on the Names of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) bringing together a wealth of knowledge and benefit from a number of Arabic sources amongst them, Muḥammad al-Mahdī al-Fāsī’s Maṭāliʿ al-masarrāt bi-jalāʾ Dalāʾil al-khayrāt; Muḥammad al-Zarqānī’s Sharḥ al-Zarqānī ʿalā al-Mawāhib al-ladunniyya and Aḥmad al-Khafājī’s Nasīm al-riyāḍ fī sharḥ Shifā’ al-Qāḍī ʿIyāḍ. This will give the English reader a taste of what the traditional scholars have written about his Names and give greater meaning to the recitals of the Names.
