So learn to read farsi! Edited August 18, by Shia Shahid. The wrath of Allah moves away from him, and a door from the doors of hell is closed for him. Its color is whiter than milk; its taste is sweeter than honey.
Whoever fasts one day in the month of Rajab will have Allah quench his thirst from that river. This is because the mercy of Allah flows on my community in this month with abundant exuberance. Of course, there are specifications as to the number of repetitions required of these recitations, and for each specification there are slight changes in the wordings of the recommended formulas, however, the core teaching that one can deduce from all these different specifications and wordings is that an excess in the recitation of these recitations is highly encouraged.
Ibn Babwayhi al-Shaykh al-Saduq d. While genuflecting, Surah al-Faatehah and Surah al-Tawheed are repeated ten times. So is done when one raises his head after the genuflection and while prostrating oneself and between the two prostrations.
This supplicatory prayer will be cited within the appendixes of the book. Jafar al-Tayyars Prayer is as precious as gold, since it is the most magnificent recommended devotional rite. Altogether with its great merits the most important of which is that it erases major sins, this prayer has been reported through authenticated chain of authority.
The best time of its performance is the first hours of daylight on Fridays. It consists of four units with two Tashahhuds i. In each unit, after the recitation of the Surahs and before the genuflection Ruku , the following litany Tasbihat should be repeated fifteen times:.
The same litany Tasbihat is repeated, yet ten times only, during the Ruku, after the Ruku while standing erect, during the prostration Sujud , after the first Sajdah, during the second Sajdah, and after the second Sajdah. The same thing is repeated in all of the four units of the prayer. Hence, the litany will have been repeated three hundred times.
Shaykh al-Kulayni has narrated that Imam Jafar al-Sadiq a. As the man answered in the affirmative, the Imam a. After you say the Tasbihat in the second Sajdah of the fourth unit, say the following litany:. Then, you may mention your needs in the form of supplication. Say it as many times as possible in one breath. Al-Mufaddal then added: If you do, it will be granted, Allah willing. Shaykh al-Tusi has narrated that Imam al-Sadiq a. Observe fasting on consecutive Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
At Thursday evening, give half bushel of food for ten poor people as alms. On Friday, wash yourself and go out to a wasteland and offer therein Jafar al-Tayyars Prayer sticking your knees to the ground after you uncover them. You may then mention your requests. Many narrations have mentioned emphatically fasting on these three days and then performance of a two-unit prayer at midday on Friday so that ones requests are granted. Among the recommended acts on Fridays is that one may say the following supplicatory prayer at midday as is narrated by Muhammad ibn Muslim on the authority of Imam Jafar al-Sadiq, peace be upon him.
Yet, the following form of the supplication has been quoted from Shaykh al-Tusis famous book entitled Misbah alMutahajjid:. Shaykh al-Saduq has narrated that Imam Jafar al-Sadiq a. It is obligatory upon all believers who claim being adherents Shiah to us i. One who does so will be regarded as following the example of the Holy Messenger, peace be upon him and his Household, and Almighty Allah will award him Paradise.
Shaykh al-Kulayni has narrated in a semi-authentic narration that al-Halabi asked Imam Jafar al-Sadiq a. With reference to the post-prayer litanies in general and the supplications to be said after the Friday Zohr Prayer, Shaykh al-Tusi has quoted Imam Jafar al-Sadiq a.
Whoever recites on Friday after the concluding part of the Zohr Prayer the following parts of the Holy Quran, will be under the divine protection all over the week:. If one says the following supplicatory prayer after the Fajr Prayer or the Zohr Prayer, no sin will be recorded against him for a whole year:. If one says the following supplicatory prayer after the Fajr Prayer or the Zohr Prayer on Fridays , he will not die before he catches the age of Imam al-Mahdi, peace be upon him:.
The earlier supplication also brings about security from misfortunes up to the next Friday if it is repeated three times after the Friday Zohr Prayer. It has been also narrated that one who invokes Almighty Allahs blessings upon the Holy Prophet and his Household, peace be upon them, between the two obligatory Zohr and Asr prayers will have the reward of offering a seventy-unit prayer. It is recommended to say the following two supplications of al-Sahifah al-Sajjadiyyah al-Kamilah: Then, supplicate as seems proper to you and invoke blessings upon the Holy Prophet and his Household one thousand times.
Thus was Imam Zayn al-Abidin a. In his book of Misbah al-Mutahajjid, Shaykh al-Tusi says that the Holy Imams, peace be upon them, are reported to have said: When one offers, after the obligatory Zohr Prayer on Fridays, a two-unit prayer reciting in each unit Surah al-Faatehah once and repeating Surah al-Tawheed seven times and after accomplishment says the following supplicatory prayer, one will be saved against all misfortunes and seditious matters up to the next Friday, and will be joined with Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him and his Household, and Prophet Abraham, peace be upon him:.
Commenting on this supplication, Shaykh al-Tusi instructs that one who is not from the Holy Prophets offspring should say, his father abihi instead of our father abina. It has been narrated that the best hours of Fridays are these coming after the Asr Prayer. Accordingly, it is recommended to repeat the following invocation one hundred times at that time:. Adding to this, Shaykh al-Tusi says that it is recommended to repeat the following invocation one hundred times at that time:.
The reverent scholar, Ibn Idris, has quoted in his book entitled alSarair that it has been recorded in the book of Jami complied by alBizaniti on the authority of Abu-Basir that Imam Jafar al-Sadiq a.
Moreover, one who says the following invocation after the Asr Prayer on Fridays will be awarded the reward of the righteous deeds of all men and jinn on that day:. Books of master scholars of Hadith have authentically narrated great rewards for saying this invocation. However, it is better to repeat it seven times and even ten times. In this respect, Imam Jafar alSadiq a.
One who repeats this invocation ten times immediately after the Asr Prayer on Fridays will receive the blessings of the angels up to the next Friday and the very hour. When you offer the Asr Prayer on Friday, repeat this invocation afterward seven times. In al-Kafi, Shaykh al-Kulayni has narrated the following: When you accomplish the Asr Prayer on Friday, say the following invocation, for if one says it at that time, Almighty Allah will record for him one hundred thousand rewards, erase one hundred thousand of his evildoings, grant him one hundred thousand requests, and elevate him one hundred thousand ranks:.
He adds that if one repeats the same invocation seven times, Almighty Allah will give him rewards as many as His servants, accept his deeds on that day, and place light between his eyes on the Resurrection Day. Later on, we will mention within the devotional rites on the Arafat Day a form of invocation of Almighty Allahsblessings upon the Holy Prophet and his Household; to say this invocation delights Prophet Muhammad and his Household - peace be upon them all.
It is recommended to repeat the following supplicatory prayer seventy times after the Asr Prayer so that sins will be forgiven:. It is recommended to recite Surah al-Qadr No. Imam Musa al-Kazim a. On Fridays, Almighty Allah has one thousand gifts of mercy. He grants a servant whatever number He wills. Thus, He grants the servant who recites Surah al-Qadr one hundred times after the Asr Prayer on Fridays all these gifts and their like. It is recommended to say the famous supplication known as Dua al-Ashraat, which will be mentioned in this book soon.
Shaykh al-Tusi has mentioned that the last hour of Friday, which lasts to sunset, is the hour in which prayers are responded. Therefore, it is required to pray Almighty Allah insistently at that hour. It has been also narrated that this hour begins when half of the sun disk sets and the other half only remains visible. Lady Fatimah al-Zahra, peace be upon her, used to pray Almighty Allah at this hour so that her prayers be answered.
It is also recommended to say the following litany that is reported from the Holy Prophet, peace be upon him and his Household:. It is also recommended to say the famous supplicatory prayer known as Dua al-Simat - which will be mentioned in this book - at the last hour of Fridays.
It is worth mentioning that Friday has relationship with Imam alMahdi - may Allah hasten his advent - from several aspects. On Friday, Imam al-Mahdi was born and on Friday, his delightful advent shall be. Hence, to expect Relief on Friday should be more intense than other days. In Imam al-Mahdis private Ziyarah on Fridays that will be mentioned later on in this book, the following statement is mentioned:.
In fact, Friday has been decided as feast day just because it is the day on which Imam al-Mahdi a. He shall also annihilate the tyrants, the infidels, and the hypocrites.
Thus, true believers shall be delighted and their hearts shall be tranquil since the Word of Truth shall prevail over all things and the true religion and creed shall be the dominant. On that day, too, the earth shall beam with the Light of its Lord. In view of that, it is highly recommended to say the major invocation of blessings upon the Holy Prophet and the Ahl al-Bayt. It is also highly advisable to say the supplication that Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Rida a.
The supplication, which will be cited in this book later on, begins with the following statement:. It is also recommended to say the supplication that Shaykh AbuAmr al-Amri dictated to Abu-Ali ibn Hammam and advised him to say it during the Occultation of Imam al-Mahdi, peace be upon him. Because this book is intended to be as brief as possible, this long supplication will be omitted.
Yet, the gentle reader may find it, as well as the previously mention major invocation of blessings upon the Holy Prophet and the Ahl al-Bayt, in the books of Misbah al-Mutahajjid and Jamal al-Usbu. It is also necessary not to overlook the famous invocation of blessings upon the Holy Prophet and the Ahl al-Bayt, peace be upon them, that is ascribed to Abul-Hasan al-Darrab al-Isfahani.
Shaykh al-Tusi and Sayyid Ibn Tawus have included this famous invocation with the recommended rites of Friday afternoons.
Confirming its significance and writing down the series of its reporters, Sayyid Ibn Tawus adds, This invocation is reported from our master Imam alMahdi, peace be upon him. So, if you have to neglect all the postprayer litanies on Friday, try not to overlook this invocation for a matter that Almighty Allah has shown to me. It was shown to Abul-Hasan al-Darrab in Makkah. Allowing for summary, the series of reporters will be overlooked.
However, the supplication is as follows:. According to some narrations, the Saturday nights are as sacred as Friday nights; therefore, it is recommendably required to say the same supplications of Friday night at Saturday nights. When al-Mutawakkil, the Abbasid ruler, ordered our master Ali ibn Muhammad al-Naqi Imam al-Hadi, peace be upon him to be present in Samarra, the capital, I went there investigating his news.
He was imprisoned at al-Zariqi, al-Mutawakkils chamberlain. When I was permitted to visit this chamberlain, he asked me, O Saqr! What for are you here? I am here for a good matter, I answered. The chamberlain then asked me to sit down. When I did, we discussed the public affairs until he asked all the others to leave him. When we remained alone, he asked me, Tell me the truth! What for are you here and what has brought you? He then said to me, Perhaps, you have come here to see your master.
My master is the Prince of the Faithful i. But the chamberlain said to me, Shut up! Your real master is the Truth. Do not fear from me. I also follow the same faith you follow. I thus expressed my thanks to Almighty Allah. He then asked me whether I would like to see the Imam a. Yet, he asked me to wait until the mailman would leave.
When the man left, the chamberlain ordered one of the servants to take me from the hand and lead me inside a certain room. When I entered, I found the Imam a. After he responded to my salutation, the Imam a. I am here to investigate your manner, I said. As my eyes fell on the grave, I wept. Do not be upset. They will not be able to hurt me. I thus praised and thanked Almighty Allah and said, O my master! There is a Hadith reported from the Holy Prophet s.
What is that Hadith? I mentioned the Hadith that reads, Do not provoke the hostility of the Days otherwise they will be your enemies. Explaining to me, the holy Imam a. On Friday will the group of the Truth join him. This is the meaning of the Days. You thus should not provoke their hostility in this world; otherwise, they will be your enemies in the Next World.
Sayyid Ibn Tawus has narrated the same narration in another series of reporters on the authority of al-Qutb al-Rawandi with the following details: Then repeat the following three times:. I begin with the following form that Imam al-Rida a. In this respect, it has been authentically narrated that when Abu-Basir asked him about the most proper form of visiting the Holy Prophets tomb and invoking Allahs salutations upon him after the prayer, Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Rida a.
Someone who had the honor to meet the Patron of the Age a. Their Ziyarah on Tuesdays is as follows:. This day is dedicated to Imam al-Hasan ibn Ali al-Askari, peace be upon him. So, when you visit him on Thursdays, you are recommended to say the following:. Friday is dedicated to Imam al-Mahdi, the Patron of the Agepeace be upon him - for his blessed advent will be on Friday. May Allah hasten his advent. So, when you visit him on Fridays, you are recommended to say the following:.
Commenting on this Ziyarah, Sayyid Ibn Tawus says: As I say this form of Ziyarah, I cite this couple of poetic verses as the best expression of my feeling:. Then you should prostrate yourself and say:. Allamah al-Majlisi has mentioned this supplication in the two sections of supplications and ritual prayer in his famous book of Bihar al-Anwar.
He has also recorded it at the end of the section of ritual prayer with commentary and explanation. He adds, Although this is one of the famous supplications, I have not found it in the authoritative books except the book of al-Misbah by Sayyid Ibn Baqi - may Allah be pleased with him.
He then says, It is well-known that this supplication should be said after the obligatory Fajr Prayers. Yet, Sayyid Ibn Baqi has specified the time after the supererogatory prayer of the morning as the best time of saying this supplication. However, either of these times may be chosen. This is one of the well-known supplications. Being the supplication of al-Khadir a. Recommendably, the supplication may be said during nights of mid-Shaban and every Thursday evening i.
It is useful for protecting against the evil of enemies, for opening the gate of sustenance, and for forgiveness of sins. The Supplication of the Tens; some paragraphs of the supplication are repeated ten times each. This supplication is excellently significant. Although there is some difference in the original copies of it, I am quoting this version from Shaykh al-TusisMisbah al-Mutahajjid.
It is advisable to say this supplication each morning and evening. Yet, its best time is Friday afternoon:. The Supplication of the Attributes. This supplication is also called Dua al-Shubur. It is advisable to say this supplication at the last hour of Fridays. It is well-known that Dua al-Simat is one of the famous supplications, which was regularly said by the past scholars.
With commentary, al-Majlisi has also narrated the supplication in his famous book of Bihar al-Anwar. The following form is quoted from Shaykh al-TusisMisbah alMutahajjid:. You may now beseech Almighty Allah to grant you your personal requests. According to some copies of the supplication, the following statement is added before the latter portion:. Shaykh al-Majlisi has quoted Sayyid Ibn Baqi as saying, in alMisbah, that the following supplicatory prayer is advisably said after Dua al-Simat:.
You may then mention your need and continue as follows:. Shaykh Ibn Fahad says that it is recommended to say the following prayer after Dua al-Simat:. The Supplication of the Lame Man. This supplication is also called the supplication of the young man punished for his sins. Being recorded in the books of al-Kafami and the book of Muhaj al-Daawat, this supplication has been taught by Imam AliAmeer al-Momineen a. After he said this supplication, the young lame man slept and saw in dream that the Holy Prophet s.
When he woke up, he found himself healed from lameness. The supplication is the following:. Then you may pray Almighty Allah to grant you your personal requests and they will be granted, Allah willing. According to the narration mentioned in Muhaj al-Daawat, one must say this supplication while being in a state of ritual purity. The Supplication of Consulting.
He also instructed me to convey it to my heir and not to leave it as long as I am alive until I meet Almighty Allah. Additionally, the Messenger of Allah a. As Abdullah ibn Ubayy begged the Holy Prophet s. Anyhow, for acquaintance with the merits of this supplication, the gentle reader is advised to refer to the book of Muhaj al-Daawat.
The supplication is as follows:. The Supplication of the Lenient Supporter. This magnificent supplication is reported from the Holy Prophet, peace be upon him and his Household. It was revealed to him while he was offering a prayer in Maqam Ibrahim the Standing-place of Prophet Abraham. In his two books of al-Balad al-Amin and alMisbah, al-Kafami has mentioned this supplication and referred to its innumerable merits as a footnote.
Among these merits is that if this supplication is said in the white days of the holy month of Ramadan, sins will be forgiven even if they are as many as rain drops, leaves of trees, and sands in wastelands.
It is advisably said for healing diseases, settling ones debts, saving from poverty, relieving grief, and releasing from adversities:. Deviation at the hour of death stands for shifting from the right to the wrong at the hour of death. To explain, Satan attends at the hour of death in order to deceive the moribund and suggest evil to him in order to make him doubt about his religion.
If Satan succeeds, he will pull out faith from the heart of the dying person. To avoid that, many supplications have comprised statements of seeking Almighty Allahs protection against deviation at death.
Fakhr al-Muhaqqiqin says, To escape deviation at the hour of death, one should bethink the proofs of creed in which he believes, as well as the five principles of the religion with all of their irrefutable evidences, with absolute sincerity and purity and should then trust them with Almighty Allah beseeching Him for giving them back at the hour of dying. This can be done by saying the following supplicatory prayer:.
According to the view of Fakhr al-Muhaqqiqin, Dua al-Adilah along with calling its contents in ones mind grants security against the danger of deviation at the hour of death.
The question whether this supplication has been reported from the Holy Imams, peace be upon them, or has been composed by a certain scholar is controversial. Concerning this, our master Hajj MirzaHusayn al-Nuri, a master Hadithist and well-versed in the reports of the Holy Imams, peace be upon them, says that Dua al-Adilah has been composed by some scholars since it cannot be found in the famous books of Hadith.
Your adherents say that Faith is of two sections; one is.
So, please teach me a supplication that makes my faith perfect and saves it from removal. Imam alSadiq a. The Supplication of the Major Chain-Armor. Shaykh al-Kafami has written this supplication in his both books of al-Balad al-Amin and al-Misbah. It is narrated from Imam Ali ibn al-Husayn Zayn al-Abidin on the authority of his father on the authority of his grandfather on the authority of the Holy Prophet peace be upon them all.
In this connection, it is narrated that Archangel Gabriel carried this supplication to the Holy Prophet s. The archangel said, Muhammad, your Lord sends His greetings to you, ordering you to take off this armor and say this supplication, for it will be security for your people and you. The merits of uttering this supplication are too many to be mentioned here.
Yet, among these merits is that if one writes down this supplication on his coffin, Almighty Allah will disdain to chastise him with Hellfire; if one says it on the first of the holy month of Ramadan, Almighty Allah will lead him to be awarded the rewards of Laylat al-Qadr the Grand Night and will create seventy thousand angels whose mission is to glorify Almighty Allah while the reward of that glorification will be recorded for that person; if one says the supplication three times in Ramadan, Almighty Allah will save his body from experiencing Hellfire, will incumbently allow him to enter Paradise, will order two angels to ward off that person from committing acts of disobedience to Him, and will be under the shelter of Almighty Allah throughout his lifetime.
Finally, the narration reads that Imam al-Husayn a. The supplication, however, consists of one thousand sacred Names of Almighty Allah one of which being the Greatest Name alism al-Azam. In conclusion, the following two matters are inferred: Although no narration has confirmed the recommendation of saying the supplication on the Grand al-Qadr Nights in particular, Allamah. In fact, al-Majlisis word is sufficient proof in this respect.
To sum it up, Dua al-Jawshan al-Kabir comprises one hundred chapters each of which consists of ten Names of Almighty Allah. At the end of each chapter, one should repeat the following statement:. However, al-Kafami, in al-Balad al-Amin, has recommended that each chapter of the supplication should be commenced with Basmalah and sealed with the abovementioned statement, yet in the following form:.
The Supplication of the Minor Chain-Armor. The commentary on this supplicatory prayer in the most reliable books of supplications has been more elaborate than the commentary mentioned for the supplicatory prayer of al-Jawshan al-Kabir. As a footnote, al-Kafami, in al-Balad al-Amin, says, This excellent supplicatory prayer is highly considered.
It was said by Imam Musa al-Kazim a. Hence, the Imam a. However, the following copy is quoted from al-Balad al-Amin:. The Supplication of the Minor Sword. Also called Dua al-Qamus The Supplicatory prayer of the Ocean , the trustworthy, noble Shaykh Mirza al-Nuri - may Allah honor his tomb - has mentioned this supplicatory prayer in his book entitled alSahifah al-Alawiyyah II, adding, This supplication has been explained by the master scholars of talismans and spiritual sciences with strange words referring to marvelous effects ensuing from reciting it.
Yet, I will not refer to these details because I cannot depend upon their accuracy. Rather, I, imitating our master scholars and avoiding falling in faults, only mention the original text of the supplication, which is as follows:. The following supplicatory prayers are quoted from considerable reference books: The Verses of the Greatest Name The reverent Sayyid Ali Khan al-Shirazi - may Allahs pleasure be with him - has mentioned in his book of al-Kalim al-Tayyib that Almighty Allahs Greatest Name alism al-azam stands for each statement that beings with the word Allah and ends up with the word huwa He , provided that the statement in Arabic be empty of any dotted letter and that its recitation does not change whether it is parsed or not.
Such statements can be found in the Holy Quran in five verses of five different Surahs: Shaykh alMaghribi says, If one betakes to these five verses as a supplicatory prayer that is repeated twelve times a day, all his general and particular affairs will be made easy for him without delay, Allah willing. These five verses are as follows: Verse of Surah al-Baqarah No. Verse 2 of SurahAl-Imran No. Allamah al-Majlisi has quoted some considerable books to have mentioned that Muhammad ibn Baabwayh reported this supplication of Seeking Intercession Dua al-tawassul from the Holy Imams a.
Commenting, he added, Whenever I said this supplication for any matter, I could find the traces of response immediately. You may now beseech Almighty Allah to grant your needs, and they will be settled, if Allah permits.
According to another narration, you may say the following words thereafter:.
The Supplication of Relief: This supplication comprises the following seeking of advocacy. Presumably, seeking of the advocacy tawassul of the Holy Twelve Imams a. Quoting from the book of Qabas al-Masabih by Shaykh alSahrashti, Sayyid Ali Khan has mentioned a supplicatory prayer with an explanatory commentary in his book of al-Kalim al-Tayyib. Yet, this commentary will not be mentioned herewith for fear of lengthiness.
Dua al-Faraj is thus as follows:. This supplication is as follows:. You may then mention your personal needs. It is worth mentioning that the following supplicatory prayer is reported from Imam Muhammad al-Jawad a. In Muhaj al-Daawat, Sayyid Ibn Tawus has narrated that a man who had been imprisoned in Syria for a long time saw in dream Lady Fatimah al-Zahra teaching him to say the following supplicatory prayer. When the man did, he was set free and thus he could return home:.
The Supplication of the Light. Moreover, she said that if you would like not to be afflicted by the harm of fever as long as you live in this world, you may say this supplicatory prayer regularly:.
Salman then added, As I learnt by heart these words, I conveyed them to more than one thousand persons in al-Madinah and Makkah who had been infected with fever and they all were healed by the will of Almighty Allah. The following supplicatory amulet is reported from Imam Zayn alAbidin a.
Imam Zayn al-Abidins supplicatory prayer for urgent response: A supplicatory prayer taught by Archangel Gabriel to the Holy Prophet: You thus may repeat the following supplicatory prayer as many times as possible:. Imam Musa al-Kazims supplicatory prayer for urgent response: Shaykh al-Kafami, in al-Balad al-Amin, has mentioned a supplicatory prayer that is reported from Imam Musa al-Kazim a.
The Supplication for Security: Al-Kafami, in his book of al-Misbah, has mentioned a supplicatory prayer about which he has said that Sayyid Ibn Tawus considered it to achieve security against the ruling authorities, ordeals, overcoming of the enemies, fear of poverty, and downheartedness. It is one of the supplications of al-Sahifah al-Sajjadiyyah. Whenever you fear something harmful, you are highly recommended to say this supplicatory prayer:.
The Supplication of the Patron of the Matter; i. Imam alMahdi a. The Supplication of the Argument-person; i. According to the book of Muhaj al-Daawat, this is the supplicatory prayer of the Argument of Allah i. Imam al-Mahdi alHujjah:. Wherever you are, you may offer a two-unit prayer, reading Surah alFaatehah and any other one in each unit. Yet, it is advisable to read Surah al-Fath No. You may then stand up, facing the kiblah direction under the sky and then say the following:.
You may then ask for whatever you want, and it will be settled for you, by Allahs permission. The author It is better to read Surah al-Fath No. In the same book al-Sahifah al-Alawiyyah , there is another poetic whispered prayer beginning with ya samia aldDua O Hearer of prayers.
Yet, I have skipped it, because it contains difficult, strange phrases, and also because I aim at briefing. Be it known to you that in addition to the months of Shaban and Ramadan, the month of Rajab enjoys a great honor, as cited in many narrations that have also conveyed the merits of this month. Furthermore, the Holy Prophet s. No other month can be as sacred and virtuous as this month.
To fight against the polytheists during this month is forbidden. Most certainly, Rajab is the month of Allah, Shaban is my month, and Ramadan is the month of my people.
Therefore, if one observes fasting on one day of this month, he will bindingly win the Grand Pleasure of Almighty Allah, will be taken away from His ire, and the gates of Hellfire will be closed in his face. Imam Musa ibn Jafar al-Kazim a.
One who fasts three days will bindingly win Paradise. Hence, if one fasts even a single day in Rajab, Almighty Allah will allow him to drink from that river. Rajab is the month of imploring for forgiveness for my people; so, you should implore forgiveness repeatedly in this month much more than you do in other months, for Almighty Allah is forgiving and merciful. This month is described as the advantageous month, because mercy is poured on my people during it so heavily. You should thus repeat very much the following imploration prayer:.
In a considerable form of narration, Ibn Baabwayh has quoted Salim as saying: I once visited Imam al-Sadiq a. When his eyes turned towards me, he asked, Have you fasted on any day in this month, Salim? No, I have not, answered I. You have missed great reward, said the Imam a.
Such a great reward that none can ever grant except Almighty Allah. Verily, this month has been given precedence to the other months by Almighty Allah Who has also given its sanctity a great consideration and will have certainly honored those who observe fasting during it. I then said, O son of Allahs Messenger, what if I fast on the rest days of Rajab, will I then be awarded anything of the rewards dedicated to those fasting in it?
If one observes fasting on the last day of this month, this will secure him against the agonies of death, the horror of the resurrection, and the grave chastisement. As for one who observes fasting on the last two days of this month, this will give him permission to pass the Discriminating Bridge sirat peacefully. As for one who observes fasting on the last three days of the month, one shall be secured on the Grand Horror Day against all the horrors and hardships thereon and shall be also granted release from Hellfire.
Finally, be it known to you that to observe fasting during the month of Rajab wholly brings about great favors. However, it has been narrated that one who is incapable of fasting during the month of Rajab may repeat the following supplicatory prayer instead one hundred times each day in Rajab:. The recommended devotional acts of Rajab are divided into two parts: The general acts are those advisedly said or done each day in the month without distinction.
It is advisable to say the following supplicatory prayer each day in Rajab. It has been narrated that Imam Zayn al-Abidin a. If one observes fasting on the last day of this month, this will secure him against the agonies of death, the horror of the resurrection, and the grave. It is recommended to say the following supplicatory prayer that Imam Jafar al-Sadiq a. The previously mentioned supplicatory prayer has been also mentioned by Sayyid Ibn Tawus al-Hasani in his book of Iqbal alAmal.
According to the narration, this supplicatory prayer is the most comprehensive and it is advisable to repeat it any time. Shaykh al-Tusi has also mentioned that the following supplicatory prayer is advisedly repeated each day in Rajab:. This supplicatory prayer is also advisably said in Masjid Sasaah. Shaykh al-Tusi has narrated that the following holy Signature of Imam al-Mahdi a. On each day in Rajab, you may say the following supplicatory prayer:.
Shaykh al-Tusi has also narrated that a document signed by Imam al-Mahdi a. In Rajab, you may visit any of the shrines of the Holy Infallibles that are possible for you to visit, and say the following supplicatory prayer therein:. Sayyid Ibn Tawus has narrated that Muhammad ibn Dhakwan known as al-Sajjad due to his remarkable, time-consuming prostration during which he used to weep so heavily that he lost his sight - asked Imam Jafar al-Sadiq a.
We are now in Rajab; I therefore please you to teach me a supplicatory prayer due to which Almighty Allah may help me.
