Adab of The Month of Rabi Al-Awwal by Mawlana Shaykh Adnan Kabbani’s Futuhat Al-Haqqaniyah

This is a Great Magnificent month which everyday consists of blessings and heavenly manifestations from Ar-Raħmān. This is the month which the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ was born, when He made hijrah to Madīnah and which he as lifted to the highest station near Allāh. Heﷺ  was born on the 12th and named Muhammadﷺ on the 19th of this month.

The superiority of this month to the rest is like the superiority of the Prophetﷺ  to creation. This month consist of tremendous adabs and litanies and for the wayfarer in this path, it is vital to keep the respect and hold to it. It is allowed in this month for seclusion and spiritual exercise (particularly) from the first to the 10th of Rabī’u ath Thānī for the love of Allāh  and his Messengerﷺ which he will reach the station of Annihilation in the Messenger of Allāhﷺ.

Adab:

  • On the night which the month enters between Asr and Maghrib, the murīd should perform the ritual bath for Allāh’s sake then:
  • Two rak’ats or wudhu or ghusl
  • Perform the Adab of Tariqah . After it recite the poem, Marħaban, Ahlan wa Sahlan….but in the middle of the month(15th) switches the recitation to, al-Widā’u al-Widā’u ya Sharh…, then read the Supplication of Grandshaykh’s Dua Al-Mathur.
