Wa `alaykumus-salaam

 

Wird means "devotion".

 

It simply refers to an act of worship you can "devote" yourself to on a regular basis and with consistency. For example, a wird of durood, a wird of tasbeeh, a wird of Qur'an recitation, a wird of reading up on academic knowledge, a wird of nalf salaat, a wird of contemplation on death, a wird of reflection on the creation of Allah etc...

 

As the book says, you should not restrict yourself to just one wird, rather you should do a variety of awraad everyday and stay consistent on them.

 

Important thing is consistency. Start with a little, then steadily increase, and insha'Allah you will find yourself getting closer to Allah.

 

The authors teacher used to say: "Whoever has no wird is a qird [monkey]!"

 

wassalaam.
