Hadhab Ratheeb is a collection of Surahs and verses from the Holy Qur'an Kareem as well as the Kalimaat (declarations of belief),
Tasbeehaat (praise of Allah Ta'ala) and Duas (invocations) which the beloved Prophet Muhammad Mustafa Sallallahu alaihi
as Sallam recommended in his blessed sayings or Hadith Shareef.
Mawlana al-Haddad, Rady Allahu Anhu has rendered a great service to Muslims in compiling all these in one small Kitab called
Ratib-ush-Shahir, popularly know as Ratib-al-Haddad. And being mindful of the blessed Prophet's Sunnah of not over-burdening
the Muslims, he has put together just the most basic supplications which take at most 15 minutes to recite.
This is the Wird that the Mureedeen (disciples) receive as Wazifa from their Shaykh when initiated into Tariqah (spiritual path
leading to Allah Sub'hanahu wa Ta'ala). The spiritual rewards of its daily recitation are immense. If someone is seeking
Maghfira (salvation and permanent forgiveness) from Allah, the Glorified and the Exalted, he can be recommended to recite
this Zikr. If your Shaykh has put you under the canopy of Mawlana al-Haddad, Rady Allahu Anhu, you are directly linked to
his ancestor, Muhammad-ur-Rasulullah, Sallallahu alaihi wa Sallam.
It starts with Surah al-Fateha, Ayatul Kursi and the last two verses of Surah al-Baqara. Then follow various Kalimaat,
Tasbeehaat, Dua, and Salawaat, each to be recited a specific number of times.
