Jaliyat al-Kadr Author





We were honoured to host Shaykh Khalid Turkestani from Mecca in the last few days of Ramadan.  An event he attended was a reading of the Jaliyat al-Kadr poem which he narrates from his teachers back to the author.  Alhumdulillah Manaqib productions have beautifully put together the translation of the text undertaken by Shaykh Abd al-Aziz Fredericks.

Before Shaykh Turkestani’s arrival he undertook some research on the authorship of the poem and was unable to locate a manuscript of the commentary on the text in the Bayt al-Mawlid al-Sharif due to refurbishments.

Shaykh Turkestani was finally able to locate the manuscript and sent me the following scans which indicate that the author of the poem is Imam Jafar bin Hasan al-Barzanji, the brother of the author of the original text.

The author of the commentary from which the scan is taken is Imam Jafar bin Ismail al-Barzanji.

Shaykh Turkestani requested that this information be conveyed to those interested, may God reward him for his efforts to locate this information.


Ilm al-Ghayb Treatise – Sh. Ahmad al-Barzanji

Ilm Ghayb Barzanji 2


Please find uploaded the treatise on the issue of Ilm al-Ghayb by Shaykh Ahmad al-Barzanji of Madinah the illuminated, a copy of which was provided by Shaykh Khalid al-Turkestani from Mecca.  I have not read the treatise in full at the time of posting here, but I believe a copy of this work is much sought after by students of knowledge.

The file can be downloaded from here: Barzanji Ilm Ghayb.


The Bayquniyyah Poem Release



Alhumdulillah we have now released an early draft of the Bayquniyyah commentary on the science of hadith by the great Meccan scholar Shaykh Hasan al-Mashat.  This book is part of a larger project which still needs reviewing, but it was thought that the release of this portion would prove useful inshAllah to teachers and students alike.

We were fortunate to be able to study this text in the blessed month of Ramadan which has just passed, and were honoured with the completion ceremony of the text with Shaykh Khalid Turkestani from Mecca.

The book can be purchased from the link here.  Please note, proceeds will go to an education project and not personal profit.
