Amulet prayers or the so called “Ad'iyatul-hirz,” are a genre of Islamic liturgical literature, prevailing among all Muslims, especially in Shiite culture. It is of importance to study these texts, whether in order to formulate the history of Islamic liturgies, or to perceive the development of Islamic culture and civilization, or to achieve a meaning tool for dating Muslim traditions. As the first step to approach this issue, the Islamic concept of amulet (hirz) and its developments should be traced. Regarding the phenomenological review of the trends observed in the Islamic civilization, this study seeks to give an historical definition of hirz, and its semantic components.
