Praise for the Book
“In this concise work, Sh. Omar Suleiman has collected many precious gems from the du`as of the righteous. The reader cannot help but get swept away in the spiritual earnestness that these beseechers felt. Animated by these timeless invocations, I pray that all of us can not only use these classical prayers ourselves, but be inspired to produce our own, from the depths of our hearts, so that our du`as, too, can be heard by the Almighty.” Yasir Qadhi
“The series impacted me more than I can explain, it was transformational, because it made me think about the level of attachment I have with my conversation with Allah.
Duas are very private, very special and very much needed – but for the first time I started to think about how much focus I had to put on my choice of words and not just my actual plea. The need was/will always be there, for Allah to grant me more and more, but the way I ask can change, depending on how I ask Him” Gilded Dunya
“beautifully designed..compilation of duas and reminders by Imam Omar Suleiman” ReciteReflect
“With 30 prayers this will be ideal for Ramadan and something that In Sha Allah will be readable. The plan is to focus on one prayer a day and reflect on it…and get the eldest involved too! The book is also a handy size to read on the go!” Muslim Mummy
About Prayers of the Pious
Thirty short prayers taken from the Prophet Muhammad and his pious predecessors, brought together by an American Muslim making a difference, Omar Suleiman. Few people call out to Allah anymore. We have forgotten what it is to have a personal conversation with God, and how simple it is. Allah doesn’t care if it rhymes, or how it sounds, or even in what language you call out to Him. What’s important is how sincere it is. Imam Ahmad was once asked, what is the distance between us and the throne of God?
A pious prayer from a pure heart, was his reply, that’s how we connect to Allah. Through reading the personal prayers of the Companions of the Prophet, this book will remind you how to speak with Allah in the same way they did. How to call upon the Creator the same way they called upon Him. And by using the dua journal you can start a conversation with Allah, following in the footsteps of the pious predecessors.
