SPIRITUAL PRAYER: Introduction Spiritual Prayer Book


Khawaja Shamsuddin Azeemi

This book is dedicated to those women who, before the end of the last
decade of the twentieth century, will govern the whole world at a most
dignified and superior level, driving forward and bringing great
progression in the mission of the holy prophet Muhammad (pbuh), the
first Noor, cause of creation of the universe, and
benefactor of humanity.

Bismillah hir Rahman ir Raheem:
Oh Lord! Make me one who establishes regular Prayer,
and also (raise such) among my offspring
–✤-✤– Prayer is a Believer’s Ascension (Mehrāj) –✤-✤–
Mehrāj means to enter the world of the unseen. When
a believer attains Mehrāj through prayer, Angels
appear in front of him. He travels through
the Heavens, and through the blessings
of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) he
comes to know
his Lord.
Prayer is the name of that special worship in which man can directly communicate and establish a
relationship with his Creator. When a person stands to perform Prayer the doors of Heaven open up to
him and between the worshipper and Allah all veils are lifted.
The beloved Prophet (pbuh) has determined a method in the form of Prayer in order to form a link with
Allah. It is the declaration of the Holy Prophet that ‘Prayer is the Mehrāj (Ascension to the Heavens) of
the Believer.’ Mehrāj was the Mehrāj of the Holy Prophet. For his descendants the Holy prophet has
declared Prayer as Mehrāj. Such a believer attains the honour to sight the High Throne, and Allah
Himself. His ears hear the voice of Allah and his heart becomes acquainted with Allah’s closeness.
Spiritual Prayer, after manifesting the hidden treasures in the sea of knowledge and awareness, presents
to us the wisdom of Prayer from a scientific point of view. It also presents solutions to many issues,
including cures for incurable illnesses.
Khawaja Shamsuddin Azeemi is the present head of the Azeemia Sufi Order, and a world famous
spiritual master.
His mission and his invitation to the whole of mankind is that they should learn the inner knowledge,
realise their latent potential so that they may get to know the Lord Creator of the universe, and hence
enjoy a blissful life here and in the hereafter.
This era is an era of developed minds. Fifty years ago, something from a scientific point of view that a
fifty-year old man did not know, today a ten-year old child knows. The availability of knowledge at this
point is at its peak where man claims to have walked in space. The idea of transmitting thoughts a
thousand miles away has now become a manifested reality, made possible by increasing and decreasing
the wavelength of sound. Distances have thinned. A journey that used to take days and years to complete
can now be accomplished within minutes and hours. Research has revealed to us that in a human brain
there are millions of cells operating, and every cell with its full strength holds a creative ability within a
human. Yes indeed! This era is an era of knowledge, scientific advancements and self-awareness. In this
day and age a concept can only become accepted when it is demonstrated with an explanation in
accordance with scientific formulae and the laws of nature.
The language and approach should be easy to understand and should touch the heart.
Spiritual Prayer has been written taking the above principle into account. I have tried to present this
book by referring to the scientific meanings and the laws of nature to explain Asalātu Mehrāj-ul-
Mumineen (Prayer is the Ascension of the Believer) so that the current generation caught up in western
education can also take advantage of this book.
Spiritual Prayer, after manifesting the hidden treasures in the sea of knowledge and awareness, presents
solutions to many issues, problems and cures for incurable illnesses. Prayer opens the doors to the unseen
world for us. By performing Prayer correctly, conversing with angels can become an easy practice.
For people who are suffering from fear, insecurity and are inflicted with problems and grief, Prayer is an
unbeatable cure. It is such a practice that if put into action correctly, we can regain our lost power and
dignity once again and achieve an honoured rank within the category of flourishing nations. Regarding
Prayer, it is important to mention here that a Prayer without the presence of heart becomes a source of
deprivation on an individual basis and a source of downfall on a collective basis.
Chapter 30, Sūrah Ma’un states:
Ah, woe unto worshipers who are unaware
of the reality and meanings of their Prayers.’
May Allah bestow upon the entire Muslim nation, divine guidance to correctly establish Prayer. And
according to the words of the Holy Prophet (pbuh), (Asalātu Mehrāj-ul-Mumineen), grant us intimate
knowledge of Allah through Prayer.
