Sibahatil Fikr Fil Jahri Bidh-Dhikr, is one of the most popular and celebrated books written in the subject of Remembering Allah in groups or individually with a audible voice. Imam Lacknawi has done an excellent job in this book which has no equal even thou Imam Suyuti wrote similar work where he focused on just narrations but on this very work Imam Al-Lacknawi critically analyses the chains of narrations as well as explaining the meanings of those narrations. He also mentions the opinions of the righteous Salaf and the rulings regarding remembering Allah in an audible voice. Shaykh Abdul Fattah Abu Ghudda has done the editing of this work and therefore one can read the additional comments on whatever Imam Lucknawi might have left out.
An Excellent and Unique Work.
