The book Adabi namaza, whose writing was finished by the Hazrat Imam Khomeini, rahmetullahi alejhi, on Saturday, 2nd rebius-sania 1361 by H. / April 18, 1942, represents comments of bold guidelines and spiritual secrets of the salah. Although three years prior to the publication of this work, Imam had written with a special gnostic language a tractate entitled Tajna namaza, he still decided to write even this this work. Imam speaks of the reasons which inspired him to write, and he states:
“A few days back I completed a treaties into which I – as much as it was possible – implemented something of the secrets of the salah. Considering that its contents are not meant for a wider audience, I decided to describe in a broader manner some of the rays concerning the bold guidelines, so that which I write could be a reminder for my brothers, and it might affect my weak heart. I hide under God the Almighty from shaitan’s influence. Verily God is the Mighty Protector. The following lines are constructed through an introduction, the treaties and the conclusion”.
The first edition of the Adabi namaza translation was published in 2004, in collaboration with the Science and Research “Ibn Sina” Institute and with the Institute for the Compilation and Publication of Imam Khomeini’s Works. The first edition was quickly sold out, and the book was published for the second time in 2009. This edition, too, was sold out very quickly. Considering the outstanding reception and the enormous interest, and constant requirements for the new publication, the Science and Research “Ibn Sina” gives its respected readers the third, revised edition of the new book.
