|How to Read Dalayel Al-Khayrat
The book is organized in sections, so that each section “contains diverse praises, invocations, and poetic references seamlessly bound into a flowing unity. ... Its phrases of exquisite beauty express love and devotion to the Chosen One (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam)" (Adam Larson)
The salawat of Dalayel AlKhayrat are divided to sections for daily reading by one of several ways:
8 Hizbs, or 4 quarters, or 3 thirds, or 2 halves. A prayer section and the names of The Lord and Prophet are to be read before a new beginning of the Salawat, and a prayer section is to be read at the end.
There are several ways to read Dalayel Al-KHayrat:
The du'aa “Before Beginning" Salawat and “After End" of Salawat are to be read every day before and after each hizb or section.
It is also traditional to read the 99 Names of the Lord (Al-Asmaa ul-Husna) (saying “jalla jallallahu” after each name) and the Names of the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam) before beginning a new reeading of the whole Dalayel AlKhayrat.
Example: One hizb a day method:
1. Read the section “Before Beginning”
2. Read the "99 Names of the Lord"
3. Read the Names of the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam)
4. Read the 1st Hizb
5. Close with “After End”
The next day (Tuesday) repeat “Before Beginning” and then skip #2 and #3 and go directly to the 2nd Hizb, and so on for the rest of the week. On the following Monday, repeat “Before Beginning”, read the final, 8th Hizb, and then have the option to read the 1st Hizb immediately to begin the next week or proceed to “After End” and then start over again from the beginning 1,2,3 etc…
If you are reading one session, or 2 halves, 3 thirds, or 4 quarters, you would follow the same basic pattern, varying only the length of time you spend at #4.
