Description:
Written by one of the most celebrated and prolific scholars of the Islamic civilisation, this treatise was written in response to a questioner in regards to remembering God (dhikr) aloud and in a group.

Reviews:
This is a meticulous translation of an important juridical opinion on a key element of Muslim spritual practice, the remembrance of God (dhikr). At the same time, it is a useful introduction to the life and teachings of one of the most prominent representatives of traditional Islamic scholarship, Jalal al-Din al-Suyuti. Readers interested in the debates surrounding Sufism and Islamic ethics will find this a valuable contribution based on sound documentation.
Carl W. Ernst, William R. Kenan, Jr., Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Building on Imam al-Suyuti's authoritative account, the accompanying appendices and running commentary by Shaykh Gibril Haddad make this the ultimate reference on the subject of loud dhikr for the Muslim public.
Muhammad Afifi al-Akiti, Fellow of the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, University of Oxford
There is a growing need for the translation of texts that reflect the vastness of traditional Islam. This work allows English speakers the opportunity to experience the classical scholarship of the erudite imam, al-Suyuti. With additional appendices and a detailed biography of the author, this book contains much benefit and is sure to validate a practice that Muslims have taken part in for centuries.
