Among the religious traditions of humanity the Imami Shi'ah tradition within Islam is unmatched in its rich corpus of devotional texts (du'a and ziyarah literature) handed down from the original leaders of the faith, the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and the Imams of his family, the Ahl al-Bayt (as).
The Mafatih al-Jinan is the most popular manual of Islamic devotional observances and prayer-texts by Shaykh Abbas Qummi, which draws its contents from well-known, reliable sources. As a manual of devotional literature, the Mafatih al-Jinan follows a long tradition established by the Misbah al-Mutahajjid of Shaykh Tusi (d. 460/1067) and followed up in the works of Sayyid Ibn Tawus (d. 664/1265), Kaf'ami (d. 905/1499) and others. Most of the contents of the Mafatih are drawn from these earlier works.
Shaykh Abbas Al Qummi (d.1940), also known as Muhaddith Qummi, was a major Iranian scholar in the first half of the twentieth century. A paragon in piety and a prolific writer, his works in Persian and Arabic on Hadith, devotions, ethics, history and biography have enjoyed wide popularity. Born in the holy city of Qom, he was a pupil of Muhaddith Nuri, the great scholar of Shi'i Hadith and compiler of the Mustadrak al-Wasa'il.
