LAZIM LITHANIES

THE LAZIM (WIRD) 

The Lazim is composed of these three mandatory pillars (in this order),
Here is a simple example of a Lazim: 
– (intention of making the morning or evening Lazim):
– “A’udhu billahi mina chaytani rajim”
– Surah El Fatiha + “Ameen”: 1 time
a- 100 times “Astaghfirullah” 

b- 100 times Salatul Fatihi 
– then say: “Subhana rabbika rabbil ‘izzati ‘amma yasifuna wa salamun ‘ala-l-mursalina wa-l-hamdu lillahi rabbi-l-‘alameen” (Surah Saffat 37, verses 180-181-182).
c- 100 times “La Ilaha illAllah” and after the hundredth “La Ilaha illAllah”: “Muhammadu Rasoulullah. ‘alayhi Salaamu lah” 
To close:
– “Innallaha wa mala-i-katahu yusalluna ‘ala nabiyi, ya ayyuha ladhina amanu sallu ‘alayhi wa sallimu taslima” (Sourate 33 El Ahzab, verset 56) 
– “Sallallahu ta’ala ‘alayhi wa ‘ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallama taslima”
– “Subhana rabbika rabbil ‘izzati ‘amma yasifuna wa salamun ‘ala-l-mursalina, wa-l-hamdu lillahi rabbi-l-‘alameen” (Surah Saffat 37, verses 180-181-182).
– Make du’a.

TIME OF THE WIRD
The Lazim is an obligatory wird performed alone, in a low voice, twice a day: morning and evening. Missed obligatory wird has to be make up. The time to perform the morning wird begins from Subh Prayer till Duha al A’la (about midday), it is the preferred time.
The time of necessity, in case of valid excuse, extends from Duha al ‘Ala to the Maghreb Prayer (the sunset).
The morning Lazim can’t be accomplished between the Fajr and Subh Prayers.

The morning wird can be advanced in the night after the ‘Isha Prayer and a lapse of time enough to recite five sub-parts (hizb) of Quran (i.e. about 1:30 hours after ‘Isha Prayer time), but in this case it must be finished before the Azan of the Fajr, otherwise we must redo it. During the night, before Fajr, the reward is greater. Seyyidina Ahmed Tijani (may ALLAH be pleased with him) said: “The evocation of the wird during the night is equivalent to five hundred times his evocation during the day, and this is true for all good deeds.”

The time to perform the evening wird begins from ‘Asr Prayer till ‘Icha Prayer, it is the preferred time. The time of necessity, in case of valid excuse, extends from ‘Icha Prayer to the Fajr Prayer (the dawn).
It is possible to perform in advance the evening Lazim with three conditions:
1. Like the morning Lazim, the evening Lazim can only be advanced before the Fajr Prayer (i.e. during the night which precedes the day but never before the ‘Asr or Dhor Prayers).
2. It can be anticipated because of an impediment whose we think it will cover the entire period of preferable time of the evening Lazim (so from the Asr to the Isha). And then, even if the hitch ends during this period, the evening Lazim done in advance remains valid.
3. In the case of performing the evening Lazim in advance (during the night before the Fajr prayer), we must perform it before the morning Lazim. So the order is: morning Lazim in advance and then evening Lazim in advance. The suitable intention must be formulated before the wird each time.
It is reported by Sidi Taieb Sefiani in Ifadat-l-Ahmediya that Seyyidina Ahmed Tijani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) said: “Whoever wants to make in advance the wird of the Asr (i.e. the evening Lazim), he can do it only if there is a hitch at this time, in this case he has to do it in advance during the night.”
