In his book of Miqb¡s al-Ma¥¡b¢¦, `All¡mah al-Majlis¢ says: Imam al-¯¡diq (`a) is reported through valid chains of authority to have said: There are three hours at night and three others at day at which Allah, the Almighty and Majestic, glorifies Himself. The three hours of days begin when the sun in the east side is in the same rising in the afternoon on the other (west) side; that is at early forenoon. The three hours of night begin at the last third of night up to dawn. Any servant glorifies Allah, the Almighty and Majestic, at these hours with full heart presence, Almighty Allah will settle his needs, and if he is unhappy (because of sinning), I expect that he will be made happy.

It is most suitable to say the following words of glorification at these hours:

انْتَ ٱللَّهُ لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاََّ انْتَ رَبُّ ٱلْعَالَمِينَ

anta all¡hu l¡ il¡ha ill¡ anta rabbu al`¡lam¢na

Everyday Supplications

Ibn B¡bawayh reports Imam al-¯¡diq (`a) to have said: Any servant (of God) that repeats the following supplication seven times everyday, Hellfire will ask Almighty Allah to protect him against it:

 اسْالُ ٱللَّهَ ٱلْجَنَّةَ

as'alu all¡h aljannata

I beseech Allah for Paradise

وَاعُوذُ بِٱللَّهِ مِنَ ٱلنَّارِ

wa a`£dhu bill¡hi min alnn¡ri

and I pray for Allah’s protection against the Fire.

Through another valid chain of authority, Imam al-¯¡diq (`a) is also reported to have said: Almighty Allah will certainly forgive any believer who commits forty grand sins every day and night but he then feels sorry for that and prays Almighty Allah to forgive him by saying the following imploration of forgiveness:

 اسْتَغْفِرُ ٱللَّهَ ٱلَّذِي لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاََّ هُوَ

astaghfiru all¡h alladh¢ l¡ il¡ha ill¡ huwa

I implore for the forgiveness of Allah save Whom there is no god;

ٱلْحَيُّ ٱلْقَيُّوْمُ

al¦ayyu alqayy£mu

the Ever-living, the Self-Subsisting,

بَدِيعُ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ وَٱلارْضِ

bad¢`u alssam¡w¡ti wal-ar¤i

the wonderful Originator of the heavens and the earth,

ذُو ٱلْجَلاَلِ وَٱلإِكْرَامِ

dh£ aljal¡li wal-ikr¡mi

and the Lord of Majesty and Honoring;

وَاسْالُهُ انْ يَتُوبَ عَلَيَّ

wa as'aluh£ an yat£ba `alayya

and I beseech Him to accept my repentance.

Through another valid chain of authority, Imam al-¯¡diq (`a) is also reported to have said: He who repeats the following doxology seven times everyday is considered to have thanked Almighty Allah as it should be for the past and the coming graces:

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ نِعْمَةٍ كَانَتْ اوْ هِيَ كَائِنَةٌ

al¦amdu lill¡hi `al¡ kulli ni`matin k¡nat aw hiya k¡'inatun

All praise be to Allah for all graces that have passed or will come to pass.

Through another valid chain of authority, Imam al-¯¡diq (`a) is also reported to have said: He who repeats the following supplication twenty-five times every day, Almighty Allah will record for him rewards as many as the number of all believers that have passed and all believers that will exist up to the Resurrection Day, will erase sins of the same number that he committed, and will raise him ranks of the same number, too:

اللَّهُمَّ ٱغْفِرْ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَٱلْمُؤْمِنَاتِ وَٱلْمُسْلِمِينَ وَٱلْمُسْلِمَاتِ

all¡humma ighfir lilmu'min¢na walmu'min¡ti walmuslim¢na walmuslim¡ti

O Allah, (please) forgive the believing men and women and the Muslim men and women.

Through another valid chain of authority, Imam al-¯¡diq (`a) is also reported to have said: He who repeats the following litany ten times every day, Almighty Allah will fend off from him seventy kinds of tribulations the easiest of which is distress (or, according to another narration, he will never be afflicted by poverty):

لاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاََّ بِٱللَّهِ

¦awla wa l¡ quwwata ill¡ bill¡hi

There is neither might nor power except with Allah.

Al-Kulayn¢, al-±abris¢, and other scholars have reported through many chains of authority, some of which are acceptable (¦asan) and others are valid, that Imam al-¯¡diq (`a) said that the Holy Prophet (¥) used to repeat the following two   statements seventy times each:

اسْتَغْفِرُ ٱللَّهَ

astaghfiru all¡hu

I implore Allah for forgiveness.

اتُوبُ إِلَىٰ ٱللَّهِ

at£bu il¡ all¡hi

I repent to Allah.

In the books of Kashf al-Ghummah and al-Am¡l¢ by Shaykh al-±£s¢, it is reported through a valid chain of authority that the Holy Prophet (¥) said: He who repeats the following statement one hundred times every day, will be secured against poverty and loneliness in grave, will be granted richness, and the doors to Paradise will be opened before him:

لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ ٱللَّهُ ٱلْمَلِكُ ٱلْحَقُّ ٱلْمُبينُ

il¡ha ill¡ all¡hu almaliku al¦aqqu almub¢nu

There is no god save Allah; the King and the evident Truth.

However, this statement has been mentioned in the book of al-Am¡l¢ as follows:

لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ ٱلْحَقُّ ٱلْمُبينُ

il¡ha ill¡ all¡hu al¦aqqu almub¢nu

There is no god save Allah; the evident Truth.

According to the narration mentioned in the books of Thaw¡b al-A`m¡l and al-Ma¦¡sin, this statement is repeated thirty times.

 

In his book of al-Da`aw¡t, al-Qu§b al-R¡wand¢ reports Imam al-Ri¤¡ (`a) to have quoted the Holy Prophet (¥) as saying: He who wishes that his status in the Highest Group excels the status of the warriors for Allah’s sake, must repeat the following words of glorification every day. If he has a request to be granted, it will be granted; if he has an enemy to overcome, his enemy will be suppressed; if he has a debt to be settled, his debt will be settled; if he passes by an agony, he will be relieved; and his words will penetrate the Seven Skies to be written down in the Reserved Tablet (al-law¦ al-ma¦f£¨):

سُبْحَانَ ٱللَّهِ كَمَا يَنْبَغِي لِلَّهِ

sub¦¡na all¡h kam¡ yanbagh¢ lill¡hi

All glory be to Allah as it should be for Allah.

وَٱلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ كَمَا يَنْبَغِي لِلَّهِ

wal¦amdu lill¡hi kam¡ yanbagh¢ lill¡hi

All praise be to Allah as it should be for Allah.

وَلاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاََّ ٱللَّهُ كَمَا يَنْبَغِي لِلَّهِ

wa l¡ il¡ha ill¡ all¡hu kam¡ yanbagh¢ lill¡hi

There is no god save Allah as it should be for Allah.

وَٱللَّهُ اكْبَرُ كَمَا يَنْبَغِي لِلَّهِ

wall¡hu akbaru kam¡ yanbagh¢ lill¡hi

Allah is the Greatest as it should be for Allah.

وَلاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاََّ بِٱللَّهِ

wa l¡ ¦awla wa l¡ quwwata ill¡ bill¡hi

There is neither might nor power except with Allah.

وَصَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ ٱلنَّبِيِّ وَعَلَىٰ اهْلِ بَيْتِهِ

wa ¥all¡ all¡hu `al¡ Muhammadin alnnabiyyi wa `al¡ ahli baytih¢

May Allah send blessings upon Muhammad, the Prophet, and upon his Household

وَجَمِيعِ ٱلْمُرْسَلِينَ وَٱلنَّبِيِّينَ

wa jam¢`i almursal¢na walnnabiyy¢na

and all the Messengers and Prophets

حَتَّىٰ يَرْضَىٰ ٱللَّهُ

¦att¡ yar¤¡ all¡hu

until Allah is pleased.

Through a valid chain of authority, Imam al-Ri¤¡ (`a) is reported to have related the following story:

 

A man found a sheet of paper with an inscription and brought it to the Holy Prophet (¥) who, once he read it, called out at people to gather for a congregational prayer. As everybody came, the Holy Prophet (¥) ascended the minbar (i.e. a pulpit in the mosque) and said: This is the scripture of Yusha`, the son of N£n (Prophet Joshua), the successor of Prophet Moses (`a). The inscription reads the following: In the Name of Allah; the All-beneficent, the All-merciful. Your Lord is certainly Kind and Merciful. The best of Allah’s servants are the pious, pure, and affectionate; while the most wicked of Allah’s servants are so identified that fingers can point at them. He who wishes to have his deeds measured by the fairest balance and to carry out his duties towards the graces that Almighty Allah has bestowed upon him, must say the following litany every day:

سُبْحَانَ ٱللَّهِ كَمَا يَنْبَغِي لِلَّهِ

sub¦¡na all¡h kam¡ yanbagh¢ lill¡hi

All glory be to Allah as it should be for Allah.

وَٱلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ كَمَا يَنْبَغِي لِلَّهِ

wal¦amdu lill¡hi kam¡ yanbagh¢ lill¡hi

All praise be to Allah as it should be for Allah.

وَلاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاََّ ٱللَّهُ كَمَا يَنْبَغِي لِلَّهِ

wa l¡ il¡ha ill¡ all¡hu kam¡ yanbagh¢ lill¡hi

There is no god save Allah as it should be for Allah.

وَلاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاََّ بِٱللَّهِ

wa l¡ ¦awla wa l¡ quwwata ill¡ bill¡hi

There is neither might nor power except with Allah.

وَصَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَاهْلِ بَيْتِهِ ٱلنَّبِيِّ ٱلامِّيِّ

wa ¥all¡ all¡hu `al¡ Muhammadin wa ahli baytih¢ alnnabiyyi al-ummiyyi

May Allah send blessings upon Muhammad, and his Household, the Meccan Prophet,

وَعَلَىٰ جَمِيعِ ٱلْمُرْسَلِينَ وَٱلنَّبِيِّينَ

wa `al¡ jam¢`i almursal¢na walnnabiyy¢na

and upon all the Messengers and Prophets

حَتَّىٰ يَرْضَىٰ ٱللَّهُ

¦att¡ yar¤¡ all¡hu

until Allah is pleased.

 

In the book of al-Balad al-Am¢n, the Holy Prophet (¥) is quoted to have said: He who repeats the following statement ten times every day, will be released from his sins as if he is on the day when his mother gave birth to him, and Almighty Allah will fend off from him seventy categories of tribulation, including lunacy, mycobacterium, leprosy, and paralysis, and Almighty Allah will appoint seventy angels to pray Him to forgive that person:

بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

bismill¡hi alrra¦m¡n alrra¦¢mi

In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.

لاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاََّ بِٱللَّهِ ٱلْعَلِيِّ ٱلْعَظِيمِ

¦awla wa l¡ quwwata ill¡ bill¡hi al`aliyyi al`a¨¢mi

There is neither might nor power except with Allah, the All-high, the All-great.

 

Imam al-¯¡diq (`a) is reported to have said: He who repeats the following litany one hundred times every day, will not be afflicted by poverty:

لاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاََّ بِٱللَّهِ

¦awla wa l¡ quwwata ill¡ bill¡hi

There is neither might nor power except with Allah.

 

Whoever repeats the following statements one hundred times every day, Almighty Allah will prohibit Hellfire to consume his body:

سُبْحَانَ ٱللَّهِ

sub¦¡na all¡hi

All glory be to Allah,

وَٱلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ

wal¦amdu lill¡hi

all praise be to Allah,

وَلاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ ٱللَّهُ

wa l¡ il¡ha ill¡ all¡hu

there is no god save Allah,

وَٱللَّهُ اكْبَرُ

wall¡hu akbaru

and Allah is the Greatest.

 

In the book of al-Balad al-Am¢n, the Holy Prophet (¥) is reported to have said: He who says these words ten times every day, Almighty Allah will forgive four thousand of his grand sins, will save him from the death agonies, the grave pressure, and one hundred of the horrors on the Resurrection Day, will also save him from the evil of Ibl¢s (i.e. Satan) and his troops, will help him settle his debts, and will relieve him from his distress, grief, and anguishes:

اعْدَدْتُ لِكُلِّ هَوْلٍ لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ ٱللَّهُ

a`dadtu likulli hawlin l¡ il¡ha ill¡ all¡hu

I am preparing “There is no god save Allah” to face any horror;

وَلِكُلِّ هَمٍّ وَغَمٍّ مَا شاءَ ٱللَّهُ

wa likulli hammin wa ghammin m¡ sh¡'a all¡hu

and “Only that which Allah wills shall come to pass” to face any grief and angst;

وَلِكُلِّ نِعْمَةٍ ٱلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ

wa likulli ni`matin al¦amdu lill¡hi

and “All praise be to Allah” to thank all graces;

وَلِكُلِّ رَخاءٍ ٱلشُّكْرُ لِلَّهِ

wa likulli rakh¡'in alshshukru lill¡hi

and “All thanks be to Allah” to thank all items of luxury;

وَلِكُلِّ اعْجُوبَةٍ سُبْحانَ ٱللَّه

wa likulli u`j£batin sub¦¡na all¡h

and “All glory be to Allah” to express any astonishing matter;

وَلِكُلِّ ذَنْبٍ اسْتَغْفِرُ ٱللَّهَ

wa likulli dhanbin astaghfiru all¡ha

and “I implore for Allah’s forgiveness” to face any sin;

وَلِكُلِّ مُصِيبَةٍ إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ راجِعُونَ

wa likulli mu¥¢batin inn¡ lill¡hi wa inn¡ ilayhi r¡ji`£na

and “We are Allah’s and to Him shall we return” to face any misfortune;

وَلِكُلِّ ضِيقٍ حَسْبِيَ ٱللَّهُ

wa likulli ¤¢qin ¦asbiya all¡hu

and “Allah is sufficient to me” to face any distress;

وَلِكُلِّ قَضاءٍ وَقَدَرٍ تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَىٰ ٱللَّهِ

wa likulli qa¤¡'in wa qadarin tawakkaltu `al¡ all¡h

and “In Allah do I trust” to face any unexpected matter;

وَلِكُلِّ عَدُوٍّ ٱعْتَصَمْتُ بِٱللَّهِ

wa likulli `aduwwin i`ta¥amtu bill¡hi

and “In Allah do I take shelter” to face any enemy;

وَلِكُلِّ طاعَةٍ وَمَعْصِيَةٍ لاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِٱللَّهِ ٱلْعَلِيِّ ٱلْعَظِيمِ

wa likulli §¡`atin wa ma`¥iyatin l¡ ¦awla wa l¡ quwwata ill¡ bill¡hi al`aliyyi al`a¨¢mi

and “There is neither might nor power except with Allah, the All-High, the All-great” to face any act of obedience or disobedience.

 

Al-Kulayn¢, Ibn B¡bawayh, and al-Barq¢, may Allah’s mercy be upon them, have reported through valid chains of authority that Imam al-¯¡diq (`a) said: He who repeats the following statement ten times every day, Almighty Allah will record for him forty-five thousand rewards, erase forty-five thousand of his sins, raise him forty-five thousand ranks towards Paradise, his saying will be shelter against Satan and despotic rulers, and no grand sin will surround him.

According to another narration, …he will be granted the reward of one who has recited the entire Qur'¡n twelve times and Almighty Allah will build a house in Paradise for him.

In the narration of Ibn B¡bawayh, it is not mentioned that the statement must be repeated ten times:

 اشْهَدُ انْ لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاََّ ٱللَّهُ

ashhadu an l¡ il¡ha ill¡ all¡hu

I bear witness that there is no god save Allah,

وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ

wa¦dah£ l¡ shar¢ka lah£

One and Only and having no associate with Him (in Godhead);

إِلٰهاً وَاحِداً

il¡han w¡¦idan

He is the One God;

احَداً صَمَداً

a¦adan ¥amadan

the Unique, the Besought of all;

لَمْ يَتَّخِذْ صَاحِبَةً وَلاَ وَلَداً

lam yattakhidh ¥¡¦ibatan wa l¡ waladan

He has taken to Himself neither a wife nor a son.

 

In the book of Thaw¡b al-A`m¡l, al-Ma¦¡sin, and al-K¡f¢, Imam al-¯¡diq (`a) is reported to have quoted the Holy Prophet (¥) as saying: He who repeats the following saying fifteen times every day, Almighty Allah will receive him with His Face and will not turn His Face away from him before he enters Paradise:

لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاََّ ٱللَّهُ حَقّاً حَقّاً

il¡ha ill¡ all¡hu ¦aqqan ¦aqqan

There is no god save Allah, indeed, indeed.

لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاََّ ٱللَّهُ إِيـمَاناً وَتَصْدِيقاً

il¡ha ill¡ all¡hu ¢m¡nan wa ta¥d¢qan

There is no god save Allah, having faith in and giving credence to Him.

لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاََّ ٱللَّهُ عُبُودِيَّةً وَرِقّاً

il¡ha ill¡ all¡hu `ub£diyyatan wa riqqan

There is no god save Allah, worshipping and serving Him.

In the book of al-Ma¦¡sin, the following is reported from the Holy Prophet (¥):

To glorify Almighty Allah one hundred times every day is better than offering one hundred camels as presents to the Holy House of Allah:

سُبْحَانَ ٱللَّهِ

sub¦¡na all¡hi

All glory be to Allah.

To praise Almighty Allah one hundred times every day is better than manumitting one hundred slaves:

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ

al¦amdu lill¡hi

All praise be to Allah.

To profess Almighty Allah being the Greatest (i.e. too great to be described) one hundred times every day is better than offering hundred horses, along with their saddles and reins, in the way of Allah (i.e. in holy wars):

اللَّهُ اكْبَرُ

all¡hu akbaru

Allah is the Greatest.

To profess Almighty Allah being the one and only god one hundred times every day is better than the deeds of all peoples, except those who repeat it more than one hundred times:

لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ ٱللَّهُ

il¡ha ill¡ all¡hu

There is no god save Allah.

Al-Qu§b al-R¡wand¢ has related the following story:

 

A worshipper from the children of Israel (i.e. Israelites) asked Allah the Almighty and Majestic, saying, “O Lord! What is my status with You? If it is praiseworthy, then I will try to add up to my good deeds; but if it is blameworthy, I will repent to You before I die.”

Replying to his question, Almighty Allah sent to him one of His angels to tell him that he has no good point with Allah.

“O Lord!” asked the man, “Where are then all my deeds?”

The Lord answered, “Whenever you did a good deed, you told people about it so that they would consider you virtuous and mention you reputably. Therefore, no reward will be given for your deeds except the reward that you have accepted for yourself.”

This fact disturbed and aggrieved the man extremely; therefore, Almighty Allah sent the same angel to convey the following message to him: “Allah, the Blessed and Exalted, says to you that you must purchase yourself from Him with alms that you must give every day for each one of your veins.”

The man asked, “O Lord! Is there any creature able to do that?”

The Almighty instructed, “You may repeat the following statement three hundred and sixty times, the number of your veins, every day:

سُبْحَانَ ٱللَّهِ

sub¦¡na all¡hi

All glory be to Allah,

وَٱلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ

wal¦amdu lill¡hi

all praise be to Allah,

وَلاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ ٱللَّهُ

wa l¡ il¡ha ill¡ all¡hu

there is no god save Allah,

وَٱللَّهُ اكْبَرُ

wall¡hu akbaru

Allah is the Greatest,

وَلاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاََّ بَِٱللَّهِ

wa l¡ ¦awla wa l¡ quwwata ill¡ bill¡hi

and there is neither might nor power except with Allah.”

The man said, “O Lord! Please, give me more.”

The Almighty said, “If you add to the number, I will add to you.”

 

Al-Kulayn¢ has reported through a valid chain of authority that Imam al-¯¡diq (`a) said: The Holy Prophet (¥) used to repeat the following doxology three hundred and sixty times, the number of the veins, each day:

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلْعَالَمِينَ كَثِيراً عَلَىٰ كُلِّ حَالٍ

al¦amdu lill¡hi rabbi al`¡lam¢na kath¢ran `al¡ kulli ¦¡lin

All praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, very much for all conditions.

Another tradition reported from Imam al-¯¡diq (`a) holds: He who says the following imploration for Almighty Allah’s forgiveness four hundred times each day for two successive months, will be granted much knowledge or much fortune:

اسْتَغْفِرُ ٱللَّهَ ٱلَّذِي لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاََّ هُوَ

astaghfiru all¡h alladh¢ l¡ il¡ha ill¡ huwa

I implore for the forgiveness of Allah save Whom there is no god,

ٱلْحَيُّ ٱلْقَيُّوْمُ

al¦ayyu alqayy£mu

the Ever-living, the Self-Subsisting,

ٱلرَّحْمٰنَ ٱلرَّحِيمَ

alrra¦m¡na alrra¦¢ma

the All-beneficent, the All-merciful,

بَدِيعُ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ وَٱلارْضِ

bad¢`u alssam¡w¡ti wal-ar¤i

and the wonderful Originator of the heavens and the earth,

مِنْ جَمِيعِ ظُلْمِي وَجُرْمِي

min jam¢`i ¨ulm¢ wa jurm¢

for all of my wrongdoings, offenses,

وَإِسْرَافِي عَلَىٰ نَفْسِي

wa isr¡f¢ `al¡ nafs¢

and transgressions against myself;

وَاتُوبُ إِلَيْهِ

wa at£bu ilayhi

and I repent to Him.

Al-±£s¢ and other scholars have stated that it is a highly recommended tradition to say the following  prayer every day:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي اسْالُكَ بِنُورِ وَجْهِكَ

all¡humma inn¢ as'aluka bin£ri wajhika

O Allah, I beseech You in the name of the light of Your face,

ٱلْمُشْرِقِ ٱلْحَيِّ

almushriqi al¦ayyi

the shining, the ever-living,

ٱلْبَاقِي ٱلْكَرِيـمِ

alb¡q¢ alkar¢mi

the perpetual, and the noble;

وَاسْالُكَ بِنُورِ وَجْهِكَ ٱلْقُدُّوْسِ

wa as'aluka bin£ri wajhika alqudd£si

and I beseech You in the name of the light of Your Face,

ٱلَّذِي اشْرَقَتْ بِهِ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتُ

alladh¢ ashraqat bih¢ alssam¡w¡tu

by which the heavens have shone,

وَٱنْكَشَفَتْ بِهِ ٱلظُّلُمَاتُ

wankashafat bih¢ al¨¨ulum¡tu

the darkness has been brought to light,

وَصَلُحَ عَلَيْهِ امْرُ ٱلاوَّلِينَ وَٱلآخِرِينَ

wa ¥alu¦a `alayhi amru al-awwal¢na wal-¡khir¢na

and the affairs of the past and the last generations have been set aright,

انْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ

an tu¥alliya `al¡ Muhammadin wa ¡lih¢

to send blessings upon Muhammad and his Household

وَانْ تُصْلِحَ لِي شَانِي كُلَّهُ

wa an tu¥li¦a l¢ sha'n¢ kullah£

and set aright all of my affairs.

 

Al-Kaf`am¢ has reported Imam al-B¡qir (`a) as saying: He who says the following supplication every day, Almighty Allah will suffice him from the troubles of his two abodes (i.e. the worldly life and the Next Life):

بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ

bismill¡hi

In the Name of Allah.

حَسْبِيَ ٱللَّهُ

¦asbiya all¡hu

Sufficient to me is Allah.

تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَىٰ ٱللَّهِ

tawakkaltu `al¡ all¡hi

In Allah I put my trust.

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي اسْالُكَ خَيْرَ امُورِي كُلِّهَا

all¡humma inn¢ as'aluka khayra um£r¢ kullih¡

O Allah, I beseech You for the best of all of my affairs

وَاعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ خِزْيِ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَعَذَابِ ٱلآخِرَةِ

wa a`£dhu bika min khizyi aldduny¡ wa `adh¡bi al-¡khirati

and I pray for Your protection against disgrace in this world and chastisement in the Hereafter.

It is also reported that whoever repeats the following litany seven times every day, Almighty Allah will suffice him from the troubles of his two abodes:

حَسْبِيَ ٱللَّهُ

¦asbiya all¡hu

Sufficient to me is Allah.

رَبِّيَ ٱللَّهُ

rabbiya all¡hu

My Lord is Allah.

لا إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ

l¡ il¡ha ill¡ huwa

There is no god but Him.

عَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ

`alayhi tawakkaltu

on Him do I rely

وَهُوَ رَبُّ ٱلْعَرْشِ ٱلْعَظِيمِ

wa huwa rabbu al`arshi al`a¨¢mi

and He is the Lord of the Great Throne.

It has been also reported that whoever says the following words of glorification every day for a whole year, will not die before he sees (in dream) his place in Paradise:

سُبْحَانَ ٱلدَّائِمِ ٱلْقَائِمِ
