Ayatullah Sayyid Muhammad Taqi Musawi Isfahani (r.a.)

Day - - >> eve of 6    8     12   13    18     21  23  |   Sahifa Mahdi(atfs) Ramadhan duas     

This month is the best for praying for the reappearance of Imam Zamana (a.t.f.s.), especially its nights, because it is the month of invocations. Hence, traditions have ordered for the same and thus, the significance of reciting Dua Iftetaah have been underlined in the nights of this month. Do not neglect this supplication for indeed, it is a noble and comprehensive prayer, encompassing the needs of both this world as well as the hereafter.

Also supporting this matter is that which the chief of narration scholars, Shaykh Sadooq has mentioned in his book, Fadail Sharur Ramadan, through his own chain of narrators from Imam Ali Reza (a.s.) that he said with regard to the merits of the month of Ramadan: Good deeds are accepted in the month of Ramadan and the sins are forgiven. One who recites one verse of the Book of Allah, in the month of Ramadan will get the reward of reciting a whole Quran in other months. One who makes his believer brother smiles in this month, he would not be met except with a smile and given the good news of Paradise on Judgment Day. One who helps his believer brother in this month, will be helped by the Almighty when passing over the Sirat Bridge, on the day when his feet would be shaking. For one who controls his anger on this month, the Almighty Allah will keep away His anger. If a person helps an oppressed soul, Allah will help him against one who is inimical to him in this world, and will also help him at the time of the accounting of deeds.

The month of Ramadan is a month of mercy and blessings. It is month of forgiveness and return [to the court of Allah]; and one who is not forgiven in the month of Ramadan, then in which month would he be forgiven?! Thus, beg the Almighty Allah to accept your fasting and that He may not make it your last time. And that He should give you the good sense of obeying Him and protect you from His disobedience, as He is the best of those who are asked.[1]

I say: In Part Five we had stated that praying for an early reappearance and success of our master, Hazrat Hujjat (a.t.f.s.) is a kind of rendering help to him, from the aspect that we are encouraged to help the believers in this month and without any doubt helping the Imam (a.s.) is the best form of help.

An evidence for this is a special Dua for this month quoted in Iqbal and Zaadul Maad from the fourth Imam, Imam Zainul Abideen (a.s.) and his son, Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) which begins as follows:

اَللّٰهُمَّ هٰذَا شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ... أَسْأَلُكَ أَنْ تَنْصُرَ خَلِيفَةَ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ وَصِيَّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ الْقَائِمَ بِالْقِسْطِ مِنْ أَوْصِيَاءِ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلَوَاتُكَ عَلَيْهِ وَ عَلَيْهِمْ اَعْطِفْ عَلَيْهِمْ نَصْرَكَ.

O Allah, this is the month of Ramadan… I ask You to help the vicegerent of Muhammad and the successor of Muhammad and the one who will establish justice from the successors of Muhammad. Your blessings be upon him and them. Bestow Your help to them.

Supporting this point also is the traditional report that Thiqatul Islam, Muhammad Ibne Yaqoob Kulaini has recorded in the Chapter of Fasting, in Usool Kafi from Muhammad bin Isa through his own chain of narrators from the Holy Imam (a.s.) that they said: Recite this Dua on the eve of 23rd of Ramadan in Sajdah (prostration), in sitting and standing, and go on repeating it as much as you can.

اَللّٰهُمَّ كُنْ لِوَلِيِّكَ فُلَانِ بْنِ فُلَانٍ فِي هٰذِهِ السَّاعَةِ وَ فِي كُلِّ سَاعَةٍ وَلِيّاً وَ حَافِظاً وَ نَاصِراً وَ دَلِيلًا وَ قَاعِداً وَ عَيْناً حَتَّى تُسْكِنَهُ أَرْضَكَ طَوْعاً وَ تُمَتِّعَهُ فِيهَا طَوِيلا.[2]

O Allah You be for so and so, at this hour and at every hour a Guardian, a protector, a leader, a helper, a guide and a protector, so that he is at ease and lives on your earth for a long time.

I say: This tradition proves that praying for the important matter of hastening the reappearance is emphasized on the 23rd eve of Ramadan of all the times and occasions just as the month of Ramadan is more emphasized than other months. It is so because it is the best time for acceptance of supplications and gaining the best rewards. And also the angels and Ruhul Qudus come down on this night and the doors of mercy and success are thrown open and they are not thrown open on other nights. Rather it has been clearly mentioned in some traditional reports that this night is the same night of Qadr (power), which is better than a thousands months. Thus, Thiqatul Islam, Muhammad Ibne Yaqoob Kulaini has stated in Usool Kafi, Chapter of Miscellany, Book of the Merits of Quran through his own chain of narrators from Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) from the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) that he said: The Quran was revealed on the 23rd of the month of Ramadan.[3] This tradition, along with the verse:Surely We revealed it on the grand night.[4]إِنَّا أَنزَلْنَاهُ فِي لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ…proves that the night of power is the same 23rd eve of the month of Ramadan, as is clear for people with sense.

Muhaqqiq Noori, in his book, Najmus Thaqib, has quoted the above mentioned Dua in expanded version from Al-Mazmaar of Sayyid Ibne Tawoos (r.a.). It is as follows:     Mp3

اَللّٰهُمَّ كُنْ لِوَلِيِّكَ الْقَائِمِ بِأَمْرِكَ الْحُجَّةِ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ الْمَهْدِيِّ عَلَيْهِ وَ عَلَى آبَائِهِ أَفْضَلُ الصَّلَاةِ وَ السَّلَامِ فِي هٰذِهِ السَّاعَةِ وَ فِي كُلِّ سَاعَةٍ وَلِيّاً وَ حَافِظاً وَ قَائِداً وَ نَاصِراً وَ دَلِيلًا وَ مُؤَيِّداً (مُرِيْدًا) حَتَّى تُسْكِنَهُ أَرْضَكَ طَوْعاً وَ تُمَتِّعَهُ فِيهَا طُولًا وَ عَرْضاً وَ تَجْعَلَهٗ وَ ذُرِّيَّتَهُ مِنَ الْأَئِمَّةِ الْوَارِثِينَ

O Allah, be for Your Wali, one who will rise up with Your command, the Hujjat Ibnil Hasan al-Mahdi, upon him and his forefathers, the best of blessings and salutations on this time and at all times, the guardian, the protector, the leader and the helper, the proof and supporter till he lives in Your earth and enjoys its length and breadth. And make him and his progeny from the inheritor Imams.

 

 اَللّٰهُمَّ انْصُرْهُ وَ انْتَصِرْ بِهٖ وَ اجْعَلِ النَّصْرَ مِنْكَ لَهٗ وَ عَلَى يَدِهِ وَ اجْعَلِ النَّصْرَ لَهٗ وَ الْفَتْحَ عَلَى وَجْهِهِ وَ لَا تُوَجِّهِ الْأَمْرَ إِلَى غَيْرِهِ اَللّٰهُمَّ أَظْهِرْ بِهٖ دِينَكَ وَ سُنَّةَ نَبِيِّكَ ﷺ حَتَّى لَا يَسْتَخْفِيَ بِشَيْ‏ءٍ مِنَ الْحَقِّ مَخَافَةَ أَحَدٍ مِنَ الْخَلْقِ

 اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أَرْغَبُ إِلَيْكَ فِي دَوْلَةٍ كَرِيمَةٍ تُعِزُّ بِهَا الْإِسْلَامَ وَ أَهْلَهٗ وَ تُذِلُّ بِهَا النِّفَاقَ وَ أَهْلَهٗ وَ تَجْعَلُنَا فِيهَا مِنَ الدُّعَاةِ إِلَى طَاعَتِكَ وَ الْقَادَةِ إِلَى سَبِيلِكَ وَ آتِنا فِي الدُّنْيا حَسَنَةً وَ فِي الْآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَ قِنا عَذابَ النَّارِ وَ اجْمَعْ لَنَا خَيْرَ الدَّارَيْنِ وَ اقْضِ عَنَّا جَمِيعَ مَا تُحِبُّ فِيهِمَا وَ اجْعَلْ لَنَا فِي ذٰلِكَ الْخِيَرَةَ بِرَحْمَتِكَ وَ مَنِّكَ فِي عَافِيَةٍ آمِينَ رَبَّ الْعَالَمِينَ وَ زِدْنَا مِنْ فَضْلِكَ وَ يَدِكَ الْمَلْاَءَ فَإِنَّ كُلَّ مُعْطٍ يَنْقُصُ مِنْ مُلْكِهِ وَ عَطَاؤُكَ يَزِيدُ فِي مِلْكِكَ.

 

O Allah, help him and help through him (Your religion) and make help from You (special) for him and open upon his face to victory and do not give this (rule) to anyone else.

O Allah, make Your religion dominant through him and the Sunnah of Your Prophet, may Allah bless him and his family. So that they do not conceal anything from the truth due to the fear of the creatures.

O Allah, indeed, I am inclined to the noble rule, in which Islam and its people are honored and hypocrisy and its people are debased. And make us the callers to Your obedience and guides to Your path. And give us good in the world and good in the hereafter and save us from the Fire and gather for us all good of both the worlds and repay all our debts. And make for us good in it by Your mercy and generosity in prosperity. Amen, Lord of the worlds and increase Your blessings on us and fill up our needs, for all You give is less than Your kingdom and Your bestowals increase Your kingdom.

23. Eve of the 6th of the month of Ramadan  

This supplication can be found in Al-Iqbal, narrating from the book of Muhammad Ibne Abi Qurrah, and it is as follows: pdf  Image  MP3

.اَللّٰهُمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ وَ إِلَيْكَ الْمُشْتَكَى اَللّٰهُمَّ أَنْتَ الْوَاحِدُ الْقَدِيمُ وَ الْآخِرُ الدَّائِمُ وَ الرَّبُّ الْخَالِقُ وَ الدَّيَّانُ يَوْمَ الدِّينِ تَفْعَلُ مَا تَشَاءُ بِلَا مُغَالَبَةٍ وَ تُعْطِي مَنْ تَشَاءُ بِلَا مَنٍّ وَ تَمْنَعُ مَا تَشَاءُ بِلَا ظُلْمٍ وَ تُدَاوِلُ الْأَيَّامَ بَيْنَ النَّاسِ يَرْكَبُونَ طَبَقاً عَنْ طَبَقٍ

O Allah, the praise is for You and I complain to You only. O Allah, You are the One, the eternal, the last and the permanent. The creator Lord, and the recompenser on Judgment Day. You do what You want without any ado. And You give to whosoever You like with a request. And You refuse to whomsoever You like without being unjust. And You distribute the sustenance of the people between them, and make one of their ranks ride on another.

 أَسْأَلُكَ يَا ذَا الْجَلَالِ وَ الْإِكْرَامِ وَ الْعِزَّةِ الَّتِي لَا تُرَامُ وَ أَسْأَلُكَ يَا اللهُ وَ أَسْأَلُكَ يَا رَحْمٰنُ أَسْأَلُكَ أَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ أَنْ تُعَجِّلَ فَرَجَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ فَرَجَنَا بِفَرَجِهِمْ وَ تَقْبَلَ صَوْمِي وَ أَسْأَلُكَ خَيْرَ مَا أَرْجُو مِنْكَ وَ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا أَحْذَرُ إِنْ أَنْتَ خَذَلْتَ فَبَعْدَ الْحُجَّةِ وَ إِنْ أَنْتَ عَصَمْتَ فَبِتَمَامِ النِّعْمَةِ

I ask You, O one with majesty and honor and the greatness which has no decline. And I ask You, O Allah, and I ask You, O Beneficent. I ask You that You bless Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad and that You hasten the Faraj of the progeny of Muhammad and our Faraj through their Faraj. And accept my fast, and I ask You for the best of that which I hope from You. And I seek refuge in You from the evil of that I fear. If You debase it is only for the establishment of proof and evidence. And if You protect it is to complete the favor.

 

 يَا صَاحِبَ مُحَمَّدٍ يَوْمَ حُنَيْنٍ وَ صَاحِبَهُ وَ مُؤَيِّدَهُ يَوْمَ بَدْرٍ وَ خَيْبَرَ وَ الْمَوَاطِنَ الَّتِي نَصَرْتَ فِيهَا نَبِيَّكَ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ السَّلَامُ يَا مُبِيرَ الْجَبَّارِينَ وَ يَا عَاصِمَ النَّبِيِّينَ

 أَسْأَلُكَ وَ أُقْسِمُ عَلَيْكَ بِحَقِّ يس وَ الْقُرْآنِ الْحَكِيمِ وَ بِحَقِّ طه وَ سَائِرِ الْقُرْآنِ الْعَظِيمِ أَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ أَنْ تُحْصِرَنِي عَنِ الذُّنُوبِ وَ الْخَطَايَا وَ أَنْ تَزِيدَنِي فِي هٰذَا الشَّهْرِ الْعَظِيمِ تَأْيِيداً تَرْبُطُ بِهٖ عَلَى جَأْشِي وَ تَسُدُّ بِهٖ عَلَى خَلَّتِي اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أَدْرَأُ بِكَ فِي نُحُورِ أَعْدَائِي لَا أَجِدُ لِي غَيْرَكَ هَا أَنَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْكَ فَاصْنَعْ بِي مَا شِئْتَ لَا يُصِيبُنِي إِلَّا مَا كَتَبْتَ لِي أَنْتَ حَسْبِي وَ نِعْمَ الْوَكِيلُ.[5]

O helper of Muhammad on the day of Hunain his helper and supporter on the day of Badr and Khyber and Muta in which You helped Your Prophet, salutations on him and his family. O debaser of oppressors and protector of the prophets.

I ask You and I put you under oath by the right Yasin and the Wise Quran, by the right of Taha and the rest of the Great Quran that You bless Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad and protect me from sins and mistakes and that You increase to me Your help in this great month so that through it I may get peace and amend my defects. O Allah, I hit at the necks of my enemies with Your help and don’t find any helper except You. That I am thankful to You. Thus do what You like with me. Because nothing will happen to me except that which you write for me. You are sufficient for me and the best of helpers.

 

 

24. 8th day of the month of Ramadan

The importance of this invocation can be derived from the tradition of Al-Iqbal and the Dua is as follows: MP3  pdf  Image 

اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي لَا أَجِدُ مِنْ أَعْمَالِي عَمَلًا أَعْتَمِدُ عَلَيْهِ وَ أَتَقَرَّبُ بِهٖ إِلَيْكَ أَفْضَلَ مِنْ وَلَايَتِكَ وَ وَلَايَةِ رَسُولِكَ وَ آلِ رَسُولِكَ الطَّيِّبِينَ صَلَوَاتُكَ عَلَيْهِ وَ عَلَيْهِمْ أَجْمَعِينَ

 اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أَتَقَرَّبُ إِلَيْكَ بِمُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ أَتَوَجَّهُ بِهِمْ إِلَيْكَ فَاجْعَلْنِي عِنْدَكَ يَا إِلَهِي بِكَ وَ بِهِمْ وَجِيهاً فِي الدُّنْيا وَ الْآخِرَةِ وَ مِنَ الْمُقَرَّبِينَ فَإِنِّي قَدْ رَضِيتُ بِذٰلِكَ مِنْكَ تُحْفَةً وَ كَرَامَةً فَإِنَّهُ لَا تُحْفَةَ وَ لَا كَرَامَةَ أَفْضَلُ مِنْ رِضْوَانِكَ وَ التَّنَعُّمِ فِي دَارِكَ مَعَ أَوْلِيَائِكَ وَ أَهْلِ طَاعَتِكَ

 اَللّٰهُمَّ أَكْرِمْنِيَ بِوَلَايَتِكَ وَ احْشُرْنِي فِي زُمْرَةِ أَهْلِ وَلَايَتِكَ اَللّٰهُمَّ اجْعَلْنِي فِي وَدَايِعِكَ الَّتِي لَا تُضَيَّعُ وَ لَا تَرُدَّنِي خَائِباً بِحَقِّكَ وَ حَقِّ مَنْ أَوْجَبْتَ حَقَّهُ عَلَيْكَ وَ أَسْأَلُكَ أَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ تُعَجِّلَ فَرَجَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ فَرَجِي مَعَهُمْ وَ فَرَجَ كُلِّ مُؤْمِنٍ وَ مُؤْمِنَةٍ بِرَحْمَتِكَ يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ.[6]

 

O Allah, indeed, I don’t find my deeds worthy of being relied upon and through it seek Your proximity. Greater than Your Wilayat and the Wilayat of Your Messenger and the progeny of Your Messenger the chaste, peace be on him and upon all his progeny.

O Allah, indeed I, seek Your proximity by Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad and seek Your attention through them. So make them my mediation and proximate ones in the world and the hereafter. And indeed, I am satisfied to take them as being rewarded and honored by You. Because no gift is better than Your pleasure and satisfaction and bestowals and Your house with Your Awliya and the people of obedience.

O Allah, grace me with Your Wilayat and include me among Your army of the people of Your Wilayat. O Allah, make me of those You have under Your trust so that I may not be lost. And do not make me hopeless. By Your right and the right of those whose right You consider obligatory. I ask You to bless Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad and hasten the Faraj of Aale Muhammad and make me successful with them. And the Faraj of all believer men and women. By Your mercy, O the most merciful of the merciful ones.

 

25. Eve of the 12th of the month of Ramadan

The significance of this too can be found in the supplication of aforementioned book as follows: MP3

اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ بِمَعَاقِدِ الْعِزِّ مِنْ عَرْشِكَ وَ مُنْتَهَى الرَّحْمَةِ مِنْ كِتَابِكَ وَ بِاسْمِكَ الْأَعْظَمِ وَ كَلِمَاتِكَ التَّامَّةِ الَّتِي لَا يُجَاوِزُهُنَّ بَرٌّ وَ لَا فَاجِرٌ فَإِنَّكَ لَا تَبِيدُ وَ لَا تَنْفَدُ أَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ تَقْبَلَ مِنِّي وَ مِنْ جَمِيعِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ صِيَامَ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ وَ قِيَامَهُ وَ تَفُكَّ رِقَابَنَا مِنَ النَّارِ

 اَللّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اجْعَلْ قَلْبِي بَارّاً وَ عَمَلِي سَارّاً وَ رِزْقِي دَارّاً وَ حَوْضَ نَبِيِّكَ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ السَّلَامُ لِي قَرَاراً وَ مُسْتَقَرّاً وَ تُعَجِّلَ فَرَجَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ فِي عَافِيَةٍ يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ.[7]

O Allah, indeed I ask You in the name of the greatness of Your throne and the limit of mercy in Your Book, and through the great names and Your perfect words such that no good or bad is beyond it. That indeed You don’t have annihilation or end. That You bless Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad and accept from me and from all the believers men and women, fasts of the month of Ramadan, and prayers in it and free us from Hellfire.

O Allah, bless Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad and make my heart good, my actions acceptable and my sustenance widen and make the pool of Your Prophet – peace be on him and his family – my place of halting and make me stay there; and hasten with ease the relief of the progeny of Muhammad. O the most merciful of the merciful ones.

اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أُدِينُكَ بِطَاعَتِكَ وَ وَلَايَتِكَ وَ وَلَايَةِ مُحَمَّدٍ نَبِيِّكَ صَلَّي اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ وَ سَلَّمَ وَ وَلَايَةِ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ  حَبِيبِ نَبِيِّكَ وَ وَلَايَةِ الْحَسَنِ وَ الْحُسَيْنِ سِبْطَيْ نَبِيِّكَ وَ سَيِّدَيْ شَبَابِ أَهْلِ جَنَّتِكَ وَ أُدِينُكَ يَا رَبِّ بِوَلَايَةِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ وَ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ وَ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ مُوسَى بْنِ جَعْفَرٍ وَ عَلِيِّ بْنِ مُوسَى وَ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ وَ عَلِيِّ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ وَ سَيِّدِي وَ مَوْلَايَ صَاحِبِ الزَّمَانِ

 أُدِينُكَ يَا رَبِّ بِطَاعَتِهِمْ وَ وَلَايَتِهِمْ وَ بِالتَّسْلِيمِ بِمَا فَضَّلْتَهُمْ رَاضِياً غَيْرَ مُنْكِرٍ وَ لَا مُتَكَبِّرٍ عَلَى مَعْنَى مَا أَنْزَلْتَ فِي كِتَابِكَ اَللّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ ادْفَعْ عَنْ وَلِيِّكَ وَ خَلِيفَتِكَ وَ لِسَانِكَ وَ الْقَائِمِ بِقِسْطِكَ وَ الْمُعَظِّمِ لِحُرْمَتِكَ وَ الْمُعَبِّرِ عَنْكَ وَ النَّاطِقِ بِحُكْمِكَ وَ عَيْنِكَ النَّاظِرَةِ وَ أُذُنِكَ السَّامِعَةِ وَ شَاهِدِ عِبَادِكَ وَ حُجَّتِكَ عَلَى خَلْقِكَ وَ الْمُجَاهِدِ فِي سَبِيلِكَ وَ الْمُجْتَهِدِ فِي طَاعَتِكَ

 وَ اجْعَلْهُ فِي وَدِيعَتِكَ الَّتِي لَا تُضَيَّعُ وَ أَيِّدْهُ بِجُنْدِكَ الْغَالِبِ وَ أَعِنْهُ وَ أَعِنْ عَنْهُ وَ اجْعَلْنِي وَ وَالِدَيَّ وَ مَا وَلَدَا وَ وُلْدِي مِنَ الَّذِينَ يَنْصُرُونَهُ وَ يَنْتَصِرُونَ بِهٖ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَ الْآخِرَةِ اشْعَبْ بِهٖ صَدْعَنَا وَ ارْتُقْ بِهٖ فَتْقَنَا اَللّٰهُمَّ أَمِتْ بِهِ الْجَوْرَ وَ دَمْدِمْ بِمَنْ نَصَبَ لَهٗ وَ اقْصِمْ رُءُوسَ الضَّلَالَةِ حَتَّى لَا تَدَعَ عَلَى الْأَرْضِ مِنْهُمْ دَيَّاراً.[8]

 

O Allah, I have faith in You with obedience and Wilayat and the Wilayat of Muhammad (s.a.w.a.) and the Wilayat of Amirul Momineen (a.s.), the beloved of Your Prophet. The Wilayat of Hasan and Husain the grandsons of Your Prophet and the two chiefs of the youths of Paradise. And I have faith in You, O Lord by the Wilayat of Ali Ibnul Husain and Muhammad bin Ali and Ja’far bin Muhammad and Musa bin Ja’far and Ali bin Musa and Muhammad bin Ali and Ali bin Muhammad and Hasan bin Ali and my chief and master, the owner of the time.

 I have faith in You, O Lord, by their obedience and their Wilayat and with submission by what You made them excel in; I am satisfied without any denial of arrogance upon what You revealed in Your Book.

O Allah, bless Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad and remove from Your Wali and caliph and tongue and one who establish justice and exalt Your sanctity and the repeater of Your words, speaker of Your command, seer of Your eyes, the hearer of Your ears, watcher of Your servants and proof of Your creatures and fighter on Your way and struggler in Your obedience.

Remove all sorts of hardships and make him Your trust which is never lost; and help him with Your victorious soldiers and support and back him. And make me and my parents and those who are born, their helpers and who take his help in the world and the hereafter. Bring together our dispersal for him, and unite our disunity for him. O Allah, finish off injustice through his reappearance and destroy all those who oppose him and break the backs of the leaders of deviation till the time you don’t leave even one of them on the earth.

Dua from Sahifa Mahdi for Day 13        Another supplication of the 13th day of Ramadan

27. Day of 18th and eve of the 19th of the month of Ramadan

The importance of invocation on these times can be understood from various invocations that have come down and narrated in Al-Iqbal. Of course, help is sought from Allah in all conditions.

Dua from Sahifa Mahdi for day 18

28.  21st of the month of Ramadan

Particularly after the morning obligatory prayers. That which proved this is the statement of the venerable Sayyid, Ali Ibne Tawoos in Iqbal, that he has narrated from Hammad bin Uthman that he said: I went to Abi Abdullah Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) on the 21st of Ramadan. His Eminence asked me: O Hammad, have you performed the ritual bath (ghusl)? I replied: Yes, may I be sacrificed on you. Then he called for a mat and then said: Come near me and perform the ritual prayer. And then the began to pray non-stop and I prayed by his side, till we concluded all the prayers. After that he began to recite supplications and I kept saying ‘Amen’ at his Duas till the dawn break. After that His Eminence (a.s.) recited the Azaan and Iqamah and called some of his servants and standing in front led the Morning Prayer and we followed praying behind him. In the first Rakat he recited the Surah Fatiha and Surah Qadr and in the second Rakat he recited the Surah Fatiha and Surah Tauheed. And after we had praised and glorified the Almighty Allah we invoked blessings on the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.a.) and prayed for all the believer men and believer women and all the Muslim men and Muslim women from the first to the last. His Eminence (a.s.) went into Sajdah and for a long time we heard nothing but his breathing. Then we heard that he was reciting as follows:   MP3

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ مُقَلِّبَ الْقُلُوبِ وَ الْأَبْصَارِ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ خَالِقَ الْخَلْقِ بِلَا حَاجَةٍ فِيكَ إِلَيْهِمْ

O Allah, indeed I ask You in the name of the greatness of Your throne and the limit of mercy in Your Book, and through the great names and Your perfect words such that no good or bad is beyond it. That indeed You don’t have annihilation or end. That You bless Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad and accept from me and from all the believers men and women, fasts of the month of Ramadan, and prayers in it and free us from Hellfire.

O Allah, bless Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad and make my heart good, my actions acceptable and my sustenance widen and make the pool of Your Prophet – peace be on him and his family – my place of halting and make me stay there; and hasten with ease the relief of the progeny of Muhammad. O the most merciful of the merciful ones.

There is no god except You, the changer of the hearts and the eyes.

There is no god, except You, the creator of the creatures without any need for Him. There is no god, except You. Who initiated the creation without there developing any deficiency in Your Kingdom.

There is no god, except You, the raiser of those who are in the graves. There is no god, except You, the destiny maker. There is no god, except You, the recompenser and the punisher of the oppressors.

There is no god, except You, Who makes the water flow from the hard stone. There is no god, except You, Who makes the water flow in vegetation.

There is no god, except You, Who conceals taste in fruits.

There is no god, except You, Who knows the count of raindrops and what the clouds bear.

There is no god, except You, Who knows the number of that which makes the wind breeze flow in the air.

There is no god, except You, Who knows what is in the oceans from wet and dry substances.

There is no god, except You, Who counts the creatures who are in the darkness of the oceans and in the layers of the earth.

I ask You by all the names You are named with, by Yourself, or which You have restricted to Yourself in Your concealed knowledge. And I ask You by the names with which when You are called, You reply, and You give when You are asked. And I ask you by Your right on Muhammad and his Ahle Bayt, Your peace and blessings be on them. And by their right which You have made obligatory on Yourself and made them repositories of Your blessings, that You bless Muhammad, Your servant and Your Messenger, the caller to You by Your permission and the gleaming lamp among your servants in Your earth and Your heavens and whom You made as the mercy for all the worlds and the illuminated Noor (light) for the believers. Then give us good news of Your mighty reward and frighten us with Your painful chastisement. I testify that he brought truth from truth and testified for Your messengers. And I testify that those who denied him will taste a painful punishment.

I ask You O Allah, O Allah, O Allah, O Lord, O Lord, O Lord, O my chief, O my chief, O my chief, O my master, O my master, O my master.

I ask You this morning, that You bless Muhammad and his family. And make me the fortunate pleader and beseecher. And bless me with the chance to free my neck from hellfire. O the most merciful of the merciful ones.

And I ask You with all those who ask You and those who don’t ask You from Your great majesty, which if I know it, I ask You by it to bless Muhammad and his Ahle Bayt and that You allow relief with their relief of those who consider them to be Your beloveds and chosen ones from Your creatures. And through them destroy the oppressors and eliminate them.

Hasten this, O Lord of the Worlds. And give me what I ask for. O owner of majesty and greatness. And give me what I ask for in this world and the hereafter. O one Who is nearer to me than the jugular vein. Cure my deficiencies and allow me to leave Your court with my wish fulfilled. O my creator, O my sustainer. O my motivator. O one Who makes the brittle bones alive.

Bless Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad and accept my entreaty. O the most merciful of the merciful ones.

 

When he concluded the supplication, he raised his head and I asked: May I be sacrificed on you, you prayed for the reappearance of one by whose reappearance the chosen ones of Allah would get ease; are you not him? He replied: That person is the Qaim of Aale Muhammad (a.s.). I asked: Are there some signs of his advent? He replied: Yes, solar eclipse, two third hour after it has risen, lunar eclipse on the 23rd of the month, a calamity that would strike the people of Egypt, cutting off of the flow of Nile, remember what you are told, and wait for your master, day and night, as the Almighty Allah is doing something every day and one work does not prevent Him from doing another. Allah is the Lord of the worlds, and it is upon Him to guide his followers and they are fearful of Him.[9
