The edition presents Ibn 'Ajiba s (1747-1809) commentary on the great gnostic Abd al-Salm ibn Mashsh al-Alams (1211 1294) celebrated salutation upon the Prophet of Islam. The salutation, commonly known as As-Salat al-Mashishiyah ("The Prayer of Ibn Mashish"), is a seminal piece of literature read throughout the Muslim world. Prayers upon the Prophet were initiated by God (Quran 33:56). Instructed by the Prophet himself, and dutifully carried out by illustrious generations since the Prophetic companions.
