Salawaat:Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani (r.a) Part 3

Kibriti'l Ahmar
Kibritil Ahmar which means "the Philosopher's Stone" is also included in many kutub some of which are:
Fuyudhaat u'r Rabbaniyyah, compiled by al-Hajj Ismail ibn as-Sayyid Muhammad Sa'eed al-Qadiri.
Awraad u'l Qaadiriyyah Rahmaniyyah, compiled by Hadhrat al-'Allamah as-Sayyid Muhammad Tayyib Shah.
Awraad u'l Qaadiriyyah, compiled by Muhammad Salim Bawwab.
Mishkaat u's Salawaat (A Niche For Lit-Up Blessings) of Mawlana Muhammad Ilyas Burney.
Majmu'ah Wazaaif Ma' Dalaail u'l Khairaat (Compilation of Regular Voluntary Invocations Together With Dalaail u'l Khairaat), translated into Urdu and compiled by Pir Muhammad Karam Shah.
Kibriti'l Ahmar is truly magnificent. It weaves verses of the Holy Qur'an Kareem together with Asma-u'n-Nabi Sallallahu 'alaihi wa Sallam (his attributive names of praise), dua (invocation), and five salawaat, three of which are famous. These are:
(a) As-Salaatu Kanzi'l A'zam, the salaat with which Kibriti'l Ahmar begins and which will be observed in more detail later,
(b) As-Salaatu'l Gauthiyyah, which we have already looked at, and
(c) As-Salaatu'l In'aam, which is now presented.
As-Salaatu'l In'aamAllahumma Salli wa Sallim 'alaihi wa 'alaa aalihi'Adada na'maaillahi wa ifdhaalihi
O Allah! Bestow blessings and peace on him and on his familyAs many times as Allah's bounties and Grace.
Kibriti'l Ahmar ends with the following verses of the Holy Qur'an Kareem.
Sub'haana Rabbika Rabbi'l 'Izzati 'Amma YasifunWa Salaamun 'ala'l MursaleenWa'l Hamdu Lillaahi Rabbi'l 'Aalameen
Glory to your Lord, the Lord of Honour and Power(He is free) from what they ascribe to HimAnd peace be on the Messengers.And praise be to Allah, the Lord of all the worlds (37:180-182
