Default shama'a e shabistan e raza

a brother asked me about it recently; and others have asked about it in the past, just as i wondered about it some years ago.

shama'a e shabistan e raza or in english: 'the light of raza's garden' is a book of litanies, enchantments and spells. it used to be published in the name of alaHazrat imam aHmed raza khan even though alaHazrat did not write such a book.

this book was compiled by some person who deemed it right to use alaHazrat's name - whether in good faith or for better circulation, Allah ta'ala knows better. after going through its various charms and enchantments, i found it incredible that alaHazrat would write such stuff.[1]

going through it once again, i tried to find out where his actual contribution starts; i couldn't place it. it is obvious and does not take extraordinary intelligence to figure out that alaHazrat did not compile the book. but the disservice is done.

---
one should keep to litanies/dhikr and prayers from hadith/quran or based on hadith/quran, like the hizb of imam shadhili etc. alaHazrat himself says that even though he has such books[2], he does not use any for himself. he says that he does not use any amaliyat except the prayers found in hadith.

Allah ta'ala knows best.


1. even though alaHazrat mentions some amaliyat, or processes - for want of a better word - to ward of jinn and magic, they are mainly about salawat and keeping clean and praying the five obligatory prayers which have a basis in the sunnah. wAllahu a'alam.

2. of charms and enchantments

very true, and what do you say about aamal-e-raza. I know that this is too not ala-hazrat's book, but whether it complies with shari'ah or not?

Assalaamu Alaykum,

I think the book is compiled by Al Haaj Sufi Iqbal Ahmad Sahib Nuri. Any of you heard of him?

Allah Hafiz

Is there any book by Imam Ala Hazrat which bears his own name? I don't think there is any.

"shama'a e shabistan e raza", "Aamal e Raza" etc. are clearly titled unlike the works of Ala Hazrat.

i have this book and in the beginning its compiler clearly says that it is a compilation of litanies and spells and incantations [ta'wiz/amaliyat] and durood from the works of ala hazrat and many other sunni scholars from the past and sufi saints. i don't see what is wrong with this book. i have seen ulama and mashaikh use it, for example, when writing tawiz for people to help them with their problems. i think it is more like an encyclopedia of spiritual remedies. it even has a chapter on kashf and how to achieve it!

the scholar who compiled it obviously took a lot of time and effort to do so.
i think it is a unique book of its kind.

Shama'a e shabistan e raza is not a book of enchantments and spells and all the wazaif and awrad there are islamic and from the books of the awliya etc.
There are many great wazaif in the book which are difficult to find now a days and it also has chapters on tibb etc.
The only objection is presence of some numerologic calendars which however can be neglected.

what about the 'divining from the quran' in the last pages? alaHazrat in a fatwa forbade people to use qur'an for divining [fa'al].

for those who did not understand my description: it is like tarot reading - you randomly open a page [ostensibly from the qur'an in this case] and get the first word, letter etc and go back to look at the results in this fa'al namah/divinator [for lack of a better word].

which is something like horoscopes and ouija boards.

al iyadhu billah.
