The Prayer of the Blessed Prophet (saw) as though you saw it with your own eyes. (According to the People of Truth and Steadfastness )
The Prayer of the Blessed Prophet (saw) as though you saw it with your own eyes. (According to the People of Truth and Steadfastness)
This is truly a monumental work and achievement by Shaykh Al-Muatasim Al-Mawali (Religious Studies Supervisor at Sultan Qaboos University). This book, Al-Muatamad (The Reliable Jurisprudence on Prayer) was going for a fee. However, Shaykh Muatasim has given me permission to share the pdf file to this website. Many times people will come and take and not appreciate the efforts that others have done. So I am humbly asking you that if you follow this method in your prayers to ask Allah (swt) to reward Shaykh Muatasim for delivering to us in the English speaking world the method of prayer as instructed by the Blessed Messenger (saw).
