Mafatih 16 points: a - p below | Others misc   |   5 prayers from Baqiyat us salehat       

a)Imam Mohammed Baqir (a.s.) has said that after every mandatory prayer, there is no better invocation than the Tasbeeh e Fatima (a.s.). If there was any other, more effective, way of Praising Allah, the Prophet (a.s.) would most certainly have instructed his daughter about that. Imam Jafar e Sadiq(as) has said that reciting the Tasbeeh e Fatima (a.s.) after every compulsory prayer is better than performing a thousand ruku/genuflections :- Allaho Akbar (34 times) Alhamdu lillah (33 times ) Subhan Allah (33 times)

b) One should say once after reciting the Tasbeeh  La ilaha ilAllah لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ ٱللَّهُ

c) Imam Baqir (a.s.) says One who sits quietly after each mandatory prayer and recites 3 times the following , Allah will pardon all his sins:

أَسْتَغْفِرُ اللَّهَ الَّذِي لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ وَ أَتُوبُ إِلَيْهِ

Astaghfarallah allazi la ilaha illa huwal hayyal qayyumo zuljalal e wal ikraame wa aatube ilaihi

I seek forgiveness from the Lord (testifying) There is no God other than Him The Living and the Everlasting Of Majesty and Splendour And I turn to Him In Repentence!

d) Imam Sadiq (as)has said that if a person recites 30 times  Subhan Allah: after each compulsory prayer, all his sins will be pardoned

e) The following prayers and recommended devotional acts have been quoted from Shaykh al-±£s¢’s famous book of Mi¥b¡h al-Mutahajjid and other reference books. After you say the Tasl¢m repeat the Takb¢r statement (i.e. all¡hu akbar; Allah is the Greatest) three times while raising your hands to the level of your ears and then say:     MP3

(I seek for all these) the protection of Allah, the Single,

ٱلحَدِ ٱلصَّمَدِ

al-ahadi al¥¥amadi

the One, and the eternally Besought of all

ٱلَّذِي لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ

alladh¢ lam yalid wa lam y£lad

Who begets not, nor is He begotten;

وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ كُفُواً حَدٌ

wa lam yakun lah£ kufwan ahadun

and the like of Whom there is none.

وَبِرَبِّ ٱلْفَلَقِ

And [I seek the protection of] the Lord of the dawn

who whispers into the hearts of men

مِنَ ٱلْجِنَّةِ وَٱلنَّاسِ

mina aljinnati walnn¡si

n.It is narrated in an inscription handwritten by Shaykh al-Shah¢d that the Holy Prophet (¥) said: Whoever desires that Almighty Allah will not show him his evildoings (that he did in this world) on the Resurrection Day and will not open the record of his evildoings, should say the following  prayer after each obligatory prayer:Mp3

اَللَّهُمَّ إِنَّ مَغْفِرَتَكَ رْجَىٰ مِنْ عَمَلِي

all¡humma inna maghfirataka arj¡ min `amal¢

O Allah, Truly, I hope for Your forgiveness more than I trust my deed.

وَإِنَّ رَحْمَتِكَ وْسَعُ مِنْ ذَنْبِي

wa inna rahmataka awsa`u min dhanb¢

Your mercy is verily more expansive than my sin.

اَللَّهُمَّ إنْ كَانَ ذَنبِي عِنْدَكَ عَظِيماً

all¡humma in k¡na dhanb¢ `indaka `a¨¢man

O Allah, If my sin is grave in Your view,

فَعَفْوُكَ عْظَمُ مِنْ ذَنْبِي

fa`afwuka a`¨amu min dhanb¢

then Your pardon is greater than my sin.

اَللَّهُمَّ إِنْ لَمْ كُنْ هْلاً نْ بْلُغَ رَحْمَتَكَ

all¡humma in lam akun ahlan an ablugha rahmataka

O Allah, If I do not deserve to attain Your mercy,

فَرَحْمَتُكَ هْلٌ نْ تَبْلُغَنِي وَتَسَعَنِي

farahmatuka ahlun an tablughan¢ wa tasa`an¢

then Your mercy is so liberal that it can reach and include me,

لنَّهَا وَسِعَتْ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ

li-annah¡ wasi`at kulla shay'in

because it has included all things;

بِرَحْمَتِكَ يَا رْحَمَ ٱلرَّاحِمينَ

birahmatika y¡ arhama alrr¡him¢na

[Let it be] by Your mercy; O most Merciful of all those who show mercy.

 

o.Ibn B¡bawayh (i.e. Shaykh al-¯ad£q) holds that one should say the following immediately after Tasb¢h al-Zahr¡':  Mp3 PDF Image

p.Shaykh al-Kaf`am¢ has also said that one should utter the following  after the obligatory prayers: Mp3

ra¤¢tu bill¡hi rabban

I have submitted to Allah being my Lord,

وَبِٱلإِسْلاَمِ ديناً

وَبِمُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ نَبِيّاً

Other Duas from Mafatih al-Jinan: ( Translation NA)

Virtues of the Effective Veneration

Al-Barqi, through an authenticated narration, reported Imam al-Sadiq (a. s. ) as saying, “Whoever repeats ten times the following statement after accomplishing his prayer and before moving his knees from their position, Almighty Allah will erase forty million of his sins, record for him forty million rewards, and he will be regarded as having recited the Holy Qur’an entirely twelve times. ” The Imam (a. s. ) then turned his face towards the reporter and said, “As to me, I do not move my knees before I repeat this statement one hundred times. As to you, you may say it ten times only. ” The statement is the following:

اَشْهَدُ اَنْ لا اِلهَ اِلا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لا شَريكَ لَهُ

اِلها واحِدا اَحَدا صَمَدا لَمْ يَتَّخِذْ صاحِبَةً وَلا وَلَدا.

Very much more merits have been reported for uttering this statement of professing Almighty Allah being the One and Only God (i. e. Tahlil) , especially after the Dawn and Evening Prayers and at sunrise and sunset. Thirteenth: Al-Kulayni, Ibn Baabwayh, and others have reported through authentic chains of authority that Imam al-Sadiq (a. s. ) said, “Archangel Gabriel came to Prophet Joseph (a. s. ) who was in the prison and taught him to say the following prayer after each prayer:

اَللّهُمَّ اجْعَلْ لى فَرَجا وَمَخْرَجا

وَارْزُقْنى مِنْ حَيْثُ اَحْتَسِبُ وَمِنْ حَيْثُ لا اَحْتَسِبُ

Fourteenth: It is mentioned in the book of al-Balad al-Amin that the Holy Prophet (s. a. w. a. ) said, “He who wishes that Almighty Allah will not stop him on the Resurrection Day for the evil deeds that he has done and that Almighty Allah will not open his record of deeds, may say this  prayer after every ritual prayer:

اَللّهُمَّ اِنَّ مَغْفِرَتَكَ اَرْجى مِنْ عَمَلى وَاِنَّ رَحْمَتَكَ اَوْسَعُ مِنْ ذَنْبى

اَللّهُمَّ اِنْ كانَ ذَنْبى عِنْدَكَ عَظيما فَعَفْوُكَ اَعْظَمُ مِنْ ذَنْبى

اَللّهُمَّ اِنْ لَمْ اَكُنْ اَهْلا اَنْ تَرْحَمَنى فَرَحْمَتُكَ اَهْلٌ اَنْ تَبْلُغَنى وَتَسَعَنى

لاَِنَّها وَسِعَتْ كُلَّ شَىْءٍ بِرَحْمَتِكَ يا اَرْحَمَ الرّحِمينَ

Fifteenth: Al-Kaf’ami reports that a man complained to the Holy Prophet (s. a. w. a. ) about his ailment and poverty. The Holy Prophet (s. a. w. a. ) therefore taught him to say the following statement after the obligatory prayers:

تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى الْحَىِّ الَّذى لا يَمُوتُ وَالْحَمْدُ لِلّهِ الَّذى لَمْ يَتَّخِذْ صاحِبَةً

وَلا وَلَدا وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ شَريكٌ فِى الْمُلْكِ وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ وَلِىُّ مِنَ الذُّلِّ وَكَبِّرْهُ تَكْبيرا.

According to another report, the Holy Prophet (s. a. w. a. ) said, “Whenever a tribulation afflicted me, Archangel Gabriel would come to me and instruct me to say these words. ” According to other validly reported traditions, this doxology may be repeated for fending off evil inspirations, settling debts, and saving from poverty. According to other traditions, the following statement precedes the doxology involved:

لاحَوْلَ وَلاقُوَّةَ اِلاّ بِاللَّهِ.

Sixteenth: In his book of al-Muqni’ah, Shaykh al-Mufid has mentioned the following supplicatory prayer to be said after every prayer:

اَللّهُمَّ انْفَعْنا بِالْعِلْمِ وَزَيِّنّا بِالْحِلْمِ وَجَمِّلْنا بِالْعافِيَةِ وَكَرِّمْنا بِالتَّقْوى

اِنَّ وَلِيِّىَ اللَّهُ الَّذى نَزَّلَ الْكِتابَ وَهُوَ يَتَوَلَّى الصّالِحينَ

Mafatih al-Jinan: Dua Maknoon and its merits

Seventeenth: Al-Tusi, Ibn Baabwayh, and others have reported through valid chains of authority that Imam AliAmeer al-Momineen (a. s. ) said, “Whoever wishes that he leaves this worldly life as pure of sins as untainted gold and none will demand him to be sued for a wrongdoing, must recite twelve times after each of the five obligatory prayers the Chapter that describes Almighty Allah; namely, Surah al-Tawheed. He may then stretch his hand and pray Almighty Allah with this supplicatory prayer, which is one of the redeeming matters that Allah’s Messenger (s. a. w. a. ) taught and ordered me to convey to al-Hasan and al-Husayn (a. s. ) :

اَللّهُمَّ اِنّى اَسْئَلُكَ بِاسْمِكَ الْمَكْنُونِ الْمَخْزُونِ الطّاهِرِ الطُّهْرِ الْمُبارَكِ

وَاَسْئَلُكَ بِاسْمِكَ الْعَظيمِ وَسُلْطانِكَ الْقَديمِ يا واهِبَ الْعَطايا يا مُطْلِقَ الاُْسارى

يا فَكّاكَ الرِّقابِ مِنَ النّارِ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَفُكَّ رَقَبَتى مِنَ النّارِ

وَاَخْرِجْنى مِنَ الدُّنْيا آمِنا وَاَدْخِلْنِى الْجَنَّةَ سالِما وَاجْعَلْ دُعآئى اَوَّلَهُ فَلاحاً

وَاَوْسَطَهُ نَجاحا وَآخِرَهُ صَلاحا اِنَّكَ اَنْتَ عَلاّمُ الْغُيُوبِ

يا فَكّاكَ الرِّقابِ مِنَ النّارِ اَسْئَلُكَ اَنْ تُصَلِّىَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

The same prayer in other validly reported copies of the tradition is as follows:

وَاَنْ تُعْتِقَ رَقَبَتى مِنَ النّارِ وَاَنْ تُخْرَجَنى مِنَ الدُّنْيا سالِما وَتُدْخِلَنِى الْجَنَّةَ آمِنا

وَاَنْ تَجْعَلَ دُعآئى اَوَّلَهُ فَلاحا وَاَوْسَطَهُ نَجاحا وَآخِرَهُ صَلاحا اِنَّكَ اَنْتَ عَلاّمُ الْغُيُوبِ

Second: ¯afw¡n al-Jamm¡l is reported to have said: I was once with Imam al-¯¡diq (`a). He directed his face towards the kiblah direction (for performing a prayer) and said the following  prayer before he uttered the takb¢rah al-ihr¡m statement (i.e. the commencing statement of the ritual prayers):

اَللَّهُمَّ لاَ تُؤْيِسْنِي مِنْ رَوْحِكَ

do not make me lose hope of Your mercy,

O All-generous!

This supplicatory prayer is one of the thirty-one secret supplications of sacredness (i.e. supplications that are reported from Almighty Allah directly) that are said for winning this-worldly and the otherworldly requests.

Our master scholars have quoted these supplicatory prayers through connected chains of authority, and some of them are quoted in Shaykh al-±£s¢’s Mi¥b¡h al-Mutahajjid and al-Kaf`am¢’s al-Mi¥b¡h. To see all these thirty-one supplications, it is advisable to refer to al-Balad al-Am¢n, the Book of Supplications in Bih¡r al-Anw¡r, and al-Jaw¡hir al-Saniyyah.

He Gives Life And Causes Death, Puts To Death And Brings To Life, He Is Ever living, Dies Not, In His Hand Is The Good; And He Is Able To Do All Things.

O My Allah, I Ask Thee For Everything Good There Is That Thy Wisdom Surrounds; I Take Refuge With Thee From Every Evil That Thy Wisdom Surrounds.

O My Allah! I Ask Thee For Success And Safety, In All Matters Concerning Me. I Seek Thy Shelter From Misery And Disgrace I Come Across In This World, And The Trouble I May Have To Face On The Day Of Judgment; I Take Shelter Under Thy Kind And Compassionate, Equitable Ways And  Means, And Thy Glorious Majesty That Does Not Fix Terms (Predestination), And Thy Omnipotence That Does Not Arbitrarily Prevent Things From (Obeying The Operation Of) Evil Of This World And Hereafter (If They Chose To Be In The Thick Of It); Also It Is True In Connection with The Evil Of Hunger And The Diseases And Evil Of (All Type Of) Violence.

Glory be to Allah, as often as often as and each time when something glorifies Allah, and just as loves Allah that which glorifies Him with (the words) “Subh’aanallaahi” as He (alone) is fit for and is worthy of, since it is for the sake of His kind disposition, and glory of His Majesty. (All) praise is for Allah, as often as and each time when something praises Allah, and just as loves Allah that which praises Him with (the worlds) “Alhamdulillaah” as He (alone) is it fit for and is worthy of, since it is for the sake of His kind disposition, and glory of His Majesty. There is no God save Allah, as often as and each time when something cries out “Allah” in joy and delight, and just as loves Allah that which pronounces the words “Laa ilaaha ilallah” as He (alone) is fit for and is worthy of, since it is for the sake of His kind disposition, and glory of His Majesty. Allah is the Greatest, as often as and each time when something calls Allah Great and sublime, and just as loves Allah that which says “Allahu Akbar” as He (alone) is fit for and is worthy of, since it is for the sake of His kind disposition, and glory of His Majesty. “Glory be to Allah”, (All) praise is for Allah (alone) “there is God save Allah”, and “Allah is the Greatest”, for all the bounties bestowed upon me, and on every one of the created beings that He created, by whom ( the above noted four declarations ) used to be, are, or shall be made to the Last Day of Judgment. O My Allah send blessings on Muhammad and on the Children of Muhammad. I request Thee (to give me) the good that I ask for, and the good which I have not referred to. I take refuge with Thee, from the evil that is hanging over my head, and the evil which has not yet come upon me.

[ Imam Ali Al-Murtaza (A.S.) had advised his followers to recite the following dua’as after every obligatory Namaaz]
(i)    O He whom hearing of one sound does not render inattentive to the other, O He whom supplicants (how many they may be) do not confuse or disturb, O He whom clamorous determined pleading of petitioners do not upset; let me cultivate the good taste of enjoying the calm and quiet, only Thy favours make possible; the gentleness and unselfishness Thy kindness and indulgence develop (in me).

يا مَنْ لا يَشْغَلُهُ سَمْعٌ عن سمع وَيا مَنْ لا يُغَلِّطُهُ السّائِلُونَ وَيا مَنْ لا يُبْرِمُهُ اِلْحاحُ المُلِحِّينَ اَذِقْني بَرْدَ عَفْوِكَ وَحَلاوَةَ رَحْمَتِكَ وَمَغْفِرَتِكَ

(ii)

My Allah, the Salaat (Namaaz) I have just prayed, was not to put forth  any demand before Thee, nor was there any self-seeking desire to reach Thee through it. It was nothing but praise, obedience and surrender unto Thee, in order to carry out that which Thou has commanded. My Allah, If there was a break of continuity (disturbance of mind) or shortcoming, while making  the intention, or standing, while bowing down, or prostrating in adoration, do not catch hold of me, (but) have the kindness of bestowing a favour on me, by affording me through Thy mercy absolution and acceptance, O the Most Merciful.

اِلـهي هذه صَلاتي صَلَّيْتُها لا لحاجَة منْكَ اليْها وَلا رَغْبَة مِنْكَ فيها اِلاّ تَعْظيماً وَطاعَةً وَاِجابَةً لَكَ اِلى ما اَمَرْتَني بِهِ الـهي اِنْ كانَ فيها خَلَلٌ اَوْ نَقْصٌ مِنْ رُكُوعِها أوْ سُجُودِها فَلا تؤاخذني وَتَفَضَّلْ عَلَيَّ بِالْقَبُولِ وَالْغُفْرانِ .

(iii) The following dua’a was taught by the Holy Prophet (S.A.) to Imam Ali (A.S.), to be recited after every obligatory Salaat, for developing a flawless memory:

Glory be to Him who does not treat the citizens of His Kingdom unjustly and harshly, Glory be to Him who does not let torment and pain come suddenly upon mankind, Glory be to the Compassionate, the Merciful. O Allah fill my heart and mind with true enlightenment, discerning intelligence, quick understanding and knowledge, Verily Thou art able to do all things.

سُبْحانَ مَنْ لا يَعْتَدي عَلى أهْلِ مَمْلَكَتِهِ سُبْحانَ مَنْ لا يَأخُذُ اَهْلَ الاَْرْضِ بأَلْوانِ الْعَذابِ سُبْحانَ الرَّؤوُفِ الرَّحيمِ اَللّـهُمَّ اْجَعلْ لي في قَلْبى نُوراً وَبَصَراً وَفَهْماً وَعِلْماً اِنَّكَ عَلى كُلِّ شَي قَديرٌ .

(12) In “Misbah of Kafa’amee” it is written that the following dua’a may be recited after every obligatory Salaat :

Long for Thy protection my Nafs (soul), my belief, my family, my possessions, my children and my brother’s-in-faith, and that which Thou, my Lord gives me as means of livelihood, and my deeds that have been done, and whoso makes know and refers to his cause and case in the name of Allah, and no other, the Single, the Independent Everlasting, (who) begets not, nor was begotten, and there is none like (comparable) unto Him; (in the name of) the Lord of daybreak, from the evil of that which He has created; from the evil of the darkness when it is intense, and from the evil of the malignant witchcraft, and from the evil of the envier when he envies. (in the name of) the Lord of mankind, the King of mankind, the God of mankind, from the evil of the sneaking whisperer, who whispers in the hearts of people, (be he) from among the jinn and mankind

اُعيذُ نَفْسي وَديني وَاَهْلي وَمالي وَوَلَدي وَاِخْواني في ديني وَما رَزَقَني رَبِّي وَخَواتيمَ عَمَلي وَمَنْ يَعْنيني اَمْرُهُ بِاللهِ الْواحِدِ الاَحَدِ الصَّمَدِ الَّذي لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ كُفواً اَحَدٌ وَبِرَبِّ الْفَلَقِ مِنْ شَرِّ ما خَلَقَ وَمِنْ شَرِّ غاسِق اِذا وَقَبَ وَمِنْ شَرِّ النَّفّاثاتِ فِي الْعُقَدْ وَمِنْ شَرِّ حاسِد اِذا حَسَدَ وَبِرَبِّ النّاسِ مَلِكِ النّاسِ إلـهِ النّاسِ مِنْ شَرِّ الْوَسْواسِ الْخَنّاسِ الَّذى يُوَسْوِسُ في صُدُورِ النّاسِ مِنَ الْجِنَّةِ وَالنّاسِ .

(13) Recite the following dua’a after every obligatory prayer:  mp3

It is reported that the Holy Prophet (S.A.) had said that if one wants to keep hidden (forgiven) his faults and mistakes, committed in this world, on the Day of Judgment, he should recite the following dua’a after every obligatory prayer:
My Allah, indeed, Thy indulgence is more to be hoped for than    my deeds; certainly Thy mercy is more deep and far-reaching   compared to my faults and mistakes. My Allah if my errors, in the matter of Thy laws, are grave in nature, Thy pardon is more substantial and well-known than my transgressions. If not obscured the befitting (praise), that eloquently describes Thy Mercy to perfection, it is because Thy Mercy is most (praise) worthy, (which) obtains and speeds up plenty of opportunities for me in everything, through Thy kindness O the Most Merciful.

اَللّـهُمَّ إنَّ مَغْفِرَتَكَ اَرْجى مِنْ عَمَلى وَاِنَّ رَحْمَتِكَ أوْسَعُ مِنْ ذَنْبي اَللّـهُمَّ إن كانَ ذَنبي عِنْدَكَ عَظيماً فَعَفْوُكَ اَعْظَمُ مِنْ ذَنْبي اَللّـهُمَّ إنْ لَمْ اَكُنْ أهْلاً أنْ اَبْلُغَ رَحْمَتُكَ فرحمتك اَهْلٌ اَنْ تَبْلُغَني وَتَسَعَني لاَِنَّها وَسِعَتْ كُلَّ شَيْء بِرَحْمَتِكَ يا اَرْحَمَ الرّاحِمينَ .

Mafatih al-Jinan: Du`a of "I contented and accepted that my Lord is Allah..."

 

It is worth mentioning that Shaykh Tusi has quoted from Muhammad ibn Sulayman al-Daylami that he had told Imam Sadiq (`a), "Your followers (the Shiites) say that the faith is divided into two parts, a firm steady part and an unsteady one that may lapse. So teach me a du`a whenever I recite it, my faith would become perfect and would not lapse." The Imam said, "After each obligatory prayer say:"

رَضِيتُ بِاللَّهِ رَبّاً وَ بِمُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ نَبِيّاً

وَ بِالْإِسْلاَمِ دِيناً وَ بِالْقُرْآنِ كِتَاباً وَ بِالْكَعْبَةِ قِبْلَةً

O my Allah make me find the right way under Thy guidance, single me out for bestowing upon me Thy bounties, spread out and make accessible for me Thy mercy,

 

let Thy blessings come down and put up with me. Glory be to Thee, there is no god save Allah,

blot out my errors and faults, one and all, altogether, because no one can cover them up, except Thee.

 

O my Allah, I ask Thee foreverything good there is that Thy wisdom surrounds; I take refuge with Thee from every evil that Thy wisdom surrounds.

 

O my Allah!I ask Thee for success and safety, in all matters concerning me. I seek Thy shelterfrom the misery and disgrace I come across in this world, and the trouble I may have to face on the Day of Judgement;

I take shelter under Thy kind and compassionate, equitable ways and means, and Thy glorious majesty that does not fix terms (predestination), and Thy omnipotence that does not arbitrarily prevent things

 

from (obeying the operation of) evil of this world and the hereafter (if they choose to be in the thick of it);also it is true in connection with the evil of hunger and diseases, and evil of (all type of) violence. Thou leads, uncovering the evil

 

certainly my Lord, to the right path. There is no stratagem, and no strength, save in Allah, the Highest High.

I commit my affairs to the charge of that Everliving who does not die. (All) praise is for Allah, who did not choose for Himself a son;

 

there is no partner (or associate) in His Kingdom (sovereignty);nor He makes friends with (any) mean and low individual, and say "Allahu Akbar".

وَ أَعُوذُ بِوَجْهِكَ الْكَرِيمِ وَ عِزَّتِكَ الَّتِي لاَ تُرَامُ وَ قُدْرَتِكَ الَّتِي لاَ يَمْتَنِعُ مِنْهَا شَيْ ءٌ

 

مِنْ شَرِّ الدُّنْيَا وَ الْآخِرَةِ وَ مِنْ شَرِّ الْأَوْجَاعِ كُلِّهَا وَ مِنْ شَرِّ كُلِّ دَابَّةٍ أَنْتَ آخِذٌ بِنَاصِيَتِهَا

إِنَّ رَبِّي عَلَى صِرَاطٍ مُسْتَقِيمٍ وَ لاَ حَوْلَ وَ لاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِاللَّهِ الْعَلِيِّ الْعَظِيمِ

تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى الْحَيِّ الَّذِي لاَ يَمُوتُ وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي لَمْ يَتَّخِذْ وَلَداً

 

وَ لَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ شَرِيكٌ فِي الْمُلْكِ وَ لَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ وَلِيٌّ مِنَ الذُّلِّ وَ كَبِّرْهُ تَكْبِيراً
