Awrad s. Wird — A regimen performed daily. Awrad may be performed for life.

Wazaif  – s. Wazeefah — A spiritual exercise that is read for specific number of days.  One should complete the days and not miss any days unless there is an excuse.  This should be perfomed in Wudu and of course unless specified one should also be in a state of major ritual pourity (ghusl).

Related in the Ghunya of Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani (rehmatullahi alyhe):

The Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings upon him) said that whoever fasts on the first Thursday of Rajab and then prays the following prayer between Maghrib and Isha, i.e on the eve of Friday:

  • 12 cycles in sets of two reciting Surah Al-Qadr (i.e. Inna anzalnahu fi laylatil Qadr) three times and Surah Al-Ikhlas (i.e. Qul huwa Allahu ahad) 12 times, and recites Darood Shareef (Allahumma salli ‘ala Muhammadinin-Nabiyyi l-Ummiyyi wa ‘ala aalihi wa sallim) 70 times at the end of the 12 cycles and then recites some special prayers (found in the Ghunya),

Allah Almighty forgives all his or her sins even if they are like the foam on the ocean, the grains of desert sand, the weight of the mountains, the drops of rain, or the leaves of trees. In addition, intercession is accepted from 700 members of this person’s family on the Day of Judgment. This prayer will come in the form of a person to the deceased when he or she is in the grave and congratulate them saying that they have been granted freedom from every hardship [in the Hereafter]. The deceased person will ask who this person is mentioning that he or she has not seen a person more handsome, nor heard a voice more sweet nor smelt a person more fragranced. Upon this the person will respond that he is this [Rajab] prayer that the person had done and had come to take care of his or her needs and be his or her companion in their loneliness and time of anxiety [in the Barzakh]. Furthermore when the trumpet is blown, this prayer will be a shade on the deceased in the Plain of Hashr and good news to the performer of this prayer that Allah Almighty does not overlook any good deed.
