. History of Hizb an-Nasr
The Hizb an-Nasr was inspired and recited by Shaykh Abu Hassan As-Shadhuli about 800 years ago. This Hizb is called as-Saif as-shadhili (The sword of shadhili). It was written at the time when Shaykh Abu Hassan was fighting against the Crusaders, led by King Louis IX of France. The invading Crusaders were trying to invade through the city of Mansura.
Towards the end of his life, Abul Hasan Shadhili's eye sight started to become weaker. He was slowly losing his eye sight but it didn't prevent him from fighting in the front line of the battle of al-Mansurah when the Crusaders forces under King Louis of France invaded Misr (Egypt) in 1250. His age was approximately 54 then.
Shaykh Abul Hasan and many of his muridun (spiritual disciples), friends from amongst the 'ulama' (scholars) and awliya (saints of God) upon hearing that the ummah (muslim community) was under attack, immediately made their way to al-Mansurah to fight in the front line seeking Victory or Paradise as Martyr (an Nasr aw al-Jannah).
Here is the recount Shaykh Abul Hasan from the Orison of The School of the Shadhdhuliyyah, volume one:
On the day of the battle he (Shaykh Abul Hasan) mounted his best horse and had one of the muridun hand him up his sword. When he had his sword to hand he asked for another, and with a sword in his right hand and a sword in his left hand he rode into battle. When asked later, given his deteriorating eyesight, how he could have ridden into battle and so honourably acquitted himself on the battle field he simply pointed to his heart saying: "If the eye of the heart sees clearly what need is there for my eyes?" such was his vision.
From the Orison of The School of the Shadhdhuliyyah, volume two we get more clearer picture of the famous battle of Mansurah:
It was Louis IX, King of France, leading the vast combined armies of the Crusaders. The desire of the King was to bring down and subdue Islam in a final decisive battle. The combined forces of the West were fully prepared to attack Misr (Egypt) in a battle that is often compared with the Battle of the Trench (ghazwatul kahndaq).
The shaykh had a profound veridical dream (ru'ya) just before the battle where he was given a vision of a huge tent, an expansive pavilion mounting into the sky, light shone upon it and it was teeming with heavenly people. When asked in the dream, to whom this tent belong, it was said, "To the Prophet of Allah, peace and blessings upon him." In the later part of the dream the Prophet spoke to Shaykh Abul Hasan and gave him advice. King Louis lost despite superior military power and he was captured in the battle along side with many of his generals. Allah gave the Muslims victory.
This highly potent du'a was also recited across Morocco by the renowned Sufi Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Nasir and inspired resistance to the French Occupation. So powerful was it that the French President had to issue an order banning its recitation from the mosques.
