Printed in UK at: Raqeem Press 'Islamabad', Tilford, Surrey GU10 2AQ. (ISBN 1 85372 868 3).Barakatud Du‘a, or The Blessings of Prayer, is a refutation of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan’s view that there is no such thing as the acceptance of prayer, and that prayer is no more than a form of worship. Ahmad proclaims that Allah hears and accepts the supplication of believers which are offered in humility and sincerity, and that the acceptance of prayer sets in motion its own chain of causes which culminates in the fulfillment of the objective prayed for.
