The Third of ¯afar  from mafatih  Image | PDF


Sayyid Ibn ±¡w£s writes down on the authority of the books of some Im¡miyyah scholars that it is recommended, on the third of ¯afar, to offer a two unit prayer at the first of which S£rah al-F¡ti¦ah and S£rah al-Fat¦ (No. 48) should be recited and at the second, S£rah al-F¡ti¦ah and S£rah al-Taw¦¢d should be recited.

After accomplishment, invocation of blessings upon the Holy Prophet and his Household, invocation of curse upon the Umayyad, and imploration for forgiveness repeated one hundred times each. After all that, one may pray for granting his needs. The invocation of curse upon the Umayyads should be in the following form:


O Allah, curse the family of Ab£-Sufy¡n.

all¡humma il`an ¡la ab¢ sufy¡na

اَللَّهُمَّ ٱلْعَنْ آلَ ابِي سُفْيَانَ
