This book is comprised of invocations or supplications (du’aa) that are inspired by various sets of selected stimulating verses from the Qur’an, which, in themselves, are particularly worthy of pondering and reflecting upon. The fundamental concept here is that, while reading the Qur’an, if one recites a verse that elicits a certain thought or emotion, then one should make a corresponding invocation in its reflection. Moreover, the invocations composed in this book are not just based on directly supplicating verses from the Qur’an, but also on various inspirational collection of verses from this Glorious Book that move one’s heart and prompt a heartfelt supplication in response. The reader is encouraged to revisit and ponder and reflect on these verses.
