HizbulBahr English & Transliteration & Commentary and

Spiritual hand & blowing protection movements
The Imam Shadhili said; about the Hizb ul Bahr By God, I did not utter it [the Litany of
the Sea] except as it came from the Prophet of God (s), from whose instruction I
learned it. "Guard it;' he said to me, "for it contains the Ism al-'Adhim-Greatest name
of God:"- It is not recited in any place without security reigning there. If it had been
with the inhabitants of Baghdad, the Tatars would not have taken the city. On his
death bed Imam Shadhili gave Naseeha-counsel to recite his Litany of the Sea (Hizb ul
Bahr) often, and he said, “Teach it to your children for the Ism al-'Adhim-Greatest
name of God is in it.”
