Remembrance of God (dhikr) and taking one’s appeals to Him (du`a’) are at the heart of Islamic practice. Many verses in the Quran refer to these notions. Muslims are commanded to remember God at all times and to call upon Him in hopefulness and in fear (A`raf 7: 56). The faithful are described as those who call upon God out of yearning and awe (Anbiya’ 21: 90). They are exhorted to be sincere in their worship (Ghafer 40: 65). “Call upon Me and I will answer you” (Ghafer 40: 60). The prayers reported from the Holy Prophet and the Infallible Imams (PBUT) are in fact intended as instructions to the faithful: to show them how to worship God, and to remember Him at all times, and to solely seek His assistance. Invocations are rich sources of Islamic mysticism. If translated into an accessible language they have the potential to leave a profound impress on the behavior of ordinary people. In addition to invocations that are to be recited at certain occasions throughout the day and the week, invocations such as Iftitah, those in the Sahifat al-Sajjadiyyah and its appendices, and the eponymous Abu Hamzah Thamali are gateways to spiritual knowledge and wisdom. Of particular importance are the prayers of `Arafah, especially that of Imam Husain (PBUH), which is a treasure house of monotheistic insights: “If My servants inquire about Me, tell them that I am near and I grant their request when they call Me. Therefore, they must also respond to My call and have faith in Me, so that they would attain salvation.”
