Wazaif Ibn Taymiyyah







Quote Wahhabi said:

" However, to read a specific verse a certain number of times (whether 99 times or whatever else) without any valid documented evidence is a bida’ah (an unacceptable act of innovation in religious practices) that is not permissible. Such acts invent a way to worship Allaah which was not revealed or taught by Islam. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
“Whoever innovates in our religion a new act (of worship) then his act is rejected" (Sahih al-Bukhari, Fath al-Baari No. 2697.)"

Wazaif Ibn Taymiyyah

Hafiz Umar bin Ali al-Bazzar said:
" I kept his close company for the duration of my stay in Damascus, for most of the day and a large part of the night. He would keep me close to himself such that he would make me sit next to him and I would be able to hear what he recited and the invocations he would make. I witnessed him recite the Fatihah and repeat it for the whole duration of time between (the offering of) Fajr until the sun had risen.  [Alam al-Aliyyah fi Manaqib Ibn Taymiyyah,p38]

Ibn al-Qayyim said:
“Ibn Taymiyyah … said one day: these two names – referring to al-Hayy and al-Qayyum – have a profound effect on giving life to the heart, indicating that these two names were the greatest name (Ism al-Adham). 
I heard him saying: Whoever consistently recites 40 times on a daily basis between the sunnah of Fajr and the Fajr prayer: Ya Hayyu Ya Qayyum La ilaha illa anta, bi rahmatika astaghith, will attain life of the heart and prevent its death.  [Madarij 1/446]

Ibn al-Qayyim writes,
ومن تجريبات السالكين التي جربوها فألفوها صحيحة أن من أدمن يا حي يا قيوم لا إله إلا أنت أورثه ذلك حياة القلب والعقل.
وكان شيخ الإسلام ابن تيمية قدس الله روحه شديد اللهج بها جدا، وقال لي يوما: لهذين الاسمين وهما الحي القيوم تأثير عظيم في حياة القلب، وكان يشير إلى أنهما الاسم الأعظم، وسمعته يقول: من واظب على أربعين مرة كل يوم بين سنة الفجر وصلاة الفجر يا حي يا قيوم، لا إله إلا أنت، برحمتك أستغيث حصلت له حياة القلب، ولم يمت قلبه. (مدارج السالكين بين منازل إياك نعبد وإياك نستعين (1/ 446)
