The Power of this prayer of Imam Muhammad al-Dar'i lies in its simplicity, its purity, and its sincere supplication. It is essentially a plea to God that our transgressions be overlooked, that divine mercy be bestowed upon us, that social justice be restored in spite of us, that wrongs be righted, and that righteousness reign once again in our lands, so that the destitute may no longer be in need, the young may be educated, the animals' purpose fulfilled, rain restored, and bounties poured forth. It is a plea to be freed from the aggression of foreigners in lands over which they have no right—a plea much needed in our modern world, rampant as it is with invasions and territorial occupations. Ultimately, it asks not that our enemies be destroyed, but simply that their plots, and the harm they cause, be halted. Its essence is mercy, which in turn is the essence of the Messenger of God, Muhammad (peace and blessing of God be upon him): "And We have only sent you as a mercy to all the worlds."

Born in Washington State and raised in Northern California, Hamza Yusuf became Muslim in 1977, after which he traveled to the Muslim world. He studied for ten years in the U.A.E., Saudi Arabia, and in North and West Africa, and received teaching licenses in various Islamic subjects. He then returned to the United States and earned degrees in Religious Studies and Health Care. He has traveled all over the world giving talks on Islam. In 1996 he founded the Zaytuna Institute, which is committed to presenting a classical picture of Islam in the West and reviving traditional study methods and the sciences of Islam. In 2009 he co-founded Zaytuna College in Berkeley, California, America's first accredited Muslim institution of higher learning. Yusuf is the first American lecturer to teach in the Qarawiyin, Morocco's most prestigious and oldest university. In addition, he has translated into modern English several classical Arabic traditional texts and poems. He currently resides in Northern California with his wife and five children.

    This book has had a powerful impact on my own life, personally. I now understand oppression in a completely different light and am able to deal with whatever oppression I see around me as well as experience personally in a much more positive and healthy manner than I did before. Reading it is healing for anyone whose heart has ever been hurt as well as any one who is disturbed by the oppression we witness around us happening to others. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in looking at oppression from a spiritual and psychological perspective, whether one is Muslim or a person of another faith, as it speaks to all people.
