The author talks of this book himself saying; “This book “Prayers of the Pious” developed out of a series of lessons that I recorded as part of the Yaqeen Institute during Ramadan in 2018. Each day, I took a prayer from one of our pious predecessors, mostly from the Companions, and taught how to call upon our Creator the same way that they called upon Him.
By following this series on a daily basis each month, and by starting to record a personal dua’ journal, writing down your own prayers following the same manner that the pious predecessors used, you can hopefully be conned to Allah in the same way they connected to Him. So I hope that you will join me on this journey, and share the Prayers of the Pious and your own prayers with everyone that you know, and please remember to also keep us in your prayers”.
