Jawshan Kabir

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ


The Jawshan Kabir, “The Great Armour”, is a series of recitations of the 1,000 Names of Allah (s.w.t.).  Some of these Names are from Qur’an, some are from ahadits and others are variations of these names.  The story relating to its origins are found in Shi’ah books and they are the ones who keep this ‘amal although there is nothing in it that precludes anyone from the Ahl as-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah from keeping it.

All faults in the translation below are mine.  The aim as to keep with the spirit of the words rather than the literal translation of everything since then, it might not convey the actual meaning of the Name.  Also, the subtle differences in the Names made it a great challenge finding English equivalents since Arabic is far subtler and nuanced a language.  In the Arabic text, no Name is repeated.  Each of the 1,000 Names of Allah (s.w.t.) are unique.
