Wird (Daily Practice in the Qadiriyya Tariqa)

Voiced dhikr, the Sufi Path of Qadiri starts with Ali (Receiver of Beneficence). Dhikr in the Sufi Path of Qadiriyyah is performed loud. The essence of the path of Qadiriyyah is to mention tawhid (lailahaillallah) and lafzai Jalal (Allah) and the dhikr of “lailahaillallah”. As the Earth and the Heaven stands with tawhid.
It is necessary to continue with tawhid and the name of Allah-u Zul –Jalal. Allah-u Zul –Jalal had hidden the prayer of “Ismu Azam” within the lafza-i jalal. The prayer of “Ismu Azam” is hidden within tawhid. A Sufi doing dhikr with those, is accounted to have done dhikr with all the “Asma-ul Husna” (The beautiful names). This is the essence of Marifatullah (Godly closeness and knowledge). All the other essences are within this. We must remember Allah with both tawhid and lafza-i jalal a lot.

The first step of Marifatullah (Godly closeness and knowledge) is dhikr. After dhikr there comes Jezbe (sufi term for Allah‟s attraction), then comes love of Allah and after this Marifatullah (Godly closeness and knowledge) appears.
Sufi is someone who does dhikr by day and night. Everyone enjoys his own art. Sufi takes joy from dargah (Sufi monastery). He enjoys the conversation of dhikr. When Sufi is doing dhikr, mountains, stones and birds does dhikr with him too. Indeed, everything does dhikr.
The seven heavens and the earth, and all beings therein, declare His glory: there is not a thing but celebrates His praise; And yet ye understand not how they declare His glory! Verily He is Oft-Forbear, Most Forgiving!”(Isra chapter, verse 44)

The dhikr of all those who are doing dhikr join with the dhikr of Sufi. His dhikr resembles a river, as river turns into sea water when it pours into it; when Sufis do dhikr, his dhikr joins the dhikr of awliya, to the dhikr of Anbiya(prophets), to the prayers of them, to the worship of them. He receives endless reward for worship, submission and dhikr together with them.
When Sufi, people of dhikr starts doing dhikr, their houses also start doing dhikr with him with the tongue of state. The angels in the heavens an the earth contribute to his dhikr.

Indeed, everything feels happy with dhikr. When someone who is an unbeliever dies, the earth and the heaven get happy and say: “my lord, you have taken this unclean person from me, I was getting intimidated, he was wandering around in me, I was getting upset. It is good that he died, I am relieved.” But, when a believer dies, his house, his prayer mat in sadness and grief and his places he sat in sadness say; “Our lord we were finding happiness in your servant who was doing dhikr for you” with the tongue of state.

For this reason, we must do dhikr to Allah a lot. Let us not give up zikr wherever we are and whether we have wudu or not. Let us do zikr a lot, as a person matures by doing zikr. Indeed, awliyaullah
(saints) have matured by doing zikr.
Zikrs get their correspondence by reaching to Allah. Allah almighty commands:
To Him mount up (all) Words of Purity: It is He Who exalts each Deed of Righteousness.” (Chapter (Fatir, The Originator), Verse 10) Allah Jalla Jalaluh responds to zikr, so, servant has conversation with Allah.
Also, The prophet of Allah says; “When the servant says Allah, Allah
addresses him by saying “Labbayk” say my servant what would you like to
say? A reward is definitely given for each dhikr.

Meaning:
O Allah! Make continuous and eternal on our master Muhammad PBUH -who is the most honorable of humans, and the source of truths of faith- and his family and friends, the highest of salat and salam, the most abundant of barakat (blessing), the the highest of exalting and respects.
Our Prophet PBUH is the place of the manifestations of what Allah bestows upon us, the pavilion of the spiritual secrets, the one how brings the necklace of Prophets together, the leader of the army of the prophets an superior to all the created ones. He is the carrier of the highest flag of honor and the owner of the reins of superiority.

Muhammad PBUH, is the witness of the secrets of eternity, and the carrier of all of the nur (illuminations) of the ones before him. He is the interpreter of the language of Allah (Jalla Jalaluh), the source of knowledge, mild character, and wisdom, the mirror of the eternal and limited existence, the pupil of the high and low universes of existence, and he is the soul of the body of the world and the hereafter.

Muhammad PBUH is the source of the life of the world and the hereafter, the one who is in the highest duties of servant hood, who is mannered with the manners of the stations of the being selected, having the honor above all the attributes. He is a very generous friend, a great and eminent beloved.
Ya Rabbi! (Lord), give endless salat and salam as many as the number of your creation, as many as the ornaments of the havens, as much as the wideness of your Zat (being) and majesty of your contentment, as many as the number of your words and length of them, to our master Muhammad who has those attributes mentioned, to his family, to his friends and to those follow him with sincerety. Give plentiful and complete salatu salam to our master whenever your servants remember you and whenever they forget you Muhammad until the day of judgment.

O Allah! Give us a tiny fraction of your endless and overflowing mercy oceans, a part from your closeness nur, a fraction from the sea of your friendship and beneficence. The keys of every work and every thing is without doubt in your hand. Give us a mercy, knowledge and closeness from your decree. We are pleading for these for the respect of your ismi jalil of “Allah”. Give us the blessing of your contentment.
O Allah! Give us understanding with your mercy. It is only you that takes away the sorrows of all the humans and gives their needs. Take our troubles away too. Free us from sadness, pains and suffering.
You are the highest of the generous and beneficent ones, you bring to safety those who believe you, accept our supplications with your favor, generosity and beneficence.
But if they turn away, Say: „(Allah) sufficeth me: there is no god but He: On Him is my trust,- He the Lord of the Throne Supreme!“ (Chapter Tawba, verse 129). Glory to thy Lord, the Lord of Honour and Power! (He is free) from what they ascribe (to Him)! And Peace on the messengers! And Praise to Allah, the Lord and Cherisher of the Worlds. (chapter Saffat, verse 180-2)(Amen)

O Lord! We have presented the good that comes from this Vird, firstly to holy and clean soul of our master Muhammad PBUH, to the souls of prophets and awliya (saints), to the souls of the people of the exalted Sufi Path, to the high souls of the pir (master) Abdulqadir Jilani and Sayyid Muhammad Efendi, to all the believers together with the souls of our past ones, accept. Honour the believers and us with health and happiness in the world and the paradise and your appearance in the hereafter. (Amen).
If Mureed has any troubles and prayers, they are mentioned with this prayer and prayed to Allah Almighty for sorting them.
