Invocations and Litanies

Blessings in wealth

A person confided in the Messenger of Allah صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم about his poverty. Allah’s Messenger صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم provided him with a solution: “Give salam when you enter your home, even if nobody is there, then invoke salam on me and recite Surah al-Ikhlā once.”

The person did this, and Allah Almighty granted him so much wealth that he began distributing it to his neighbours and family members.[1]

Litany to have a son

The couple should both recite Surah al-Kawthar 101 times a day. They will soon become parents to a son, with Allah’s permission.[2]

Treating a lack of religiosity

When the non-practicing person is sleeping, someone who punctually offers salah should recite Surah al-Ikhlā once whilst standing about a metre away from the person. This should be recited in an audible tone, but not so loud that it wakes him up. The non-practicing person will become an observant Muslim, by Allah’s grace.[3]

A prayer for cancer patients

Recite Surah Maryam, with Salāt Ibrahimiyah 11 times before and after, and blow onto water. Additional water should be added to this as required. The cancer patient should drink this throughout the day for 40 days.[4]

Note: Another person can recite this and give it to the sick person.
