In al-Ja’fariyyaat: In his narration from Ja’far ibn Muhammad (a.s.) from his fathers (a.s.) from Imam Ali (a.s.):When the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) had prayed two rak’ahs before the Morning Prayer,After The Naafelah:
he (s.a.w.a.) laid down on his right side and placed his right hand under his right cheek, then said:
istamsakto be-u’rwatil laahil wusqal latee lan fesaama lahaa was ta’samto be-hablil laahil mateen.
a-o’ozo billaahe min fawratil a’rabe wal a’jame wa a-o’ozo billaahe min sharre shayaateenil inse wal jinne.
I have laid hold of the firmest handle of Allah which shall not break off and I have clung to the strong rope of Allah. I seek refuge with Allah from the outbursts of the Arab and the non-Arab, and I seek refuge with Allah from the evil of the devils from the man and jinn.
tawakkalto a’lal laahe talabto haajatee menal laahe hasbeyal laaho wa ne’mal wakeelo laa hawla wa laa quwwata illaa billaahil a’liyyil a’zeeme.
I trust in Allah. I seek the fulfillment of my needs from Allah. Allah is enough for me and He is the best Procurator, there is no power or might but by (the will of) Allah the Sublime, the Mighty.
The Post-Dawn (Fajr) Prayer Litanies
As quoted from Misbah al-Mutahajjid:

O Allah, send blessings to Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad
ma sha'a allahu kana wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahi al`aliyyi al`azimi (10) Only that which Allah wills shall come to pass and there is neither might nor power save with Allah, the All-high and All-great.
In Tahdhib al-Ahkam (by Shaykh al-Tusi), it is reported that whoever repeats the following ten times after the Dawn Prayers, Almighty Allah will save him from blindness, insanity, leprosy, poverty, and (house) demolition or dotage:

All glory be to Allah, the All-great and in praise of Him;
wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahi al`aliyyi al`azimi
and there is neither might nor power save with Allah, the All-high and All-great.
Shaykh al-Kulayni reports Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (peace be upon him) as saying: Whoever repeats the following seven times after the Dawn and Sunset Prayers, Almighty Allah will save him from seventy kinds of misfortune the least of which are , leprosy, and insanity; and his name will be erased from the list of the condemned ones, if it was listed there, and will be added to the list of the happy ones:
بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
bismi allahi alrrahmani alrrahimi
In the Name of Allah the All-compassionate, the All-merciful;
la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahi al`aliyyi al`azimi
there is neither might nor power save with Allah, the All-high and All-great.
Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (peace be upon him) is also reported to have said that one who desires to enjoy both the worldly life and the Next World, and one who has eye ache, should say the following prayer after the Dawn and Sunset Prayers:
allahumma inni as'aluka bihaqqi muhammadin wa ali muhammadin `alayka
O Allah, I do beseech You, in the name of the right of Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad that is incumbent upon You

In `Uddat al-Da`i, Shaykh Ibn Fahad reports Imam `Ali ibn Musa al-Rida (peace be upon him) to have said: Whoever says the following dua after the Dawn Prayer,
will have all his requests made easy-to-gain for him and will be saved by Almighty Allah against every thing that aggrieves him:

So, they returned with grace and favor from Allah,

Qutub Rawandi reported from Imam Ali (as) that the Holy Prophet (saws) has stated, that he was afraid for him who does not remember the 4 blessings at dawn & as a result , may be snatched away from him
alh'amdu lillaahil lad'ee satara u'yoobee wa lam yafz'ah'nee baynan naasi
All Praise to Allah who has covered my sins & shortcomings & did not degrade me in the eyes of Human beings
Alternate translation Praise be to Allah who made me aware of His nafs (reality) and did not forsake me to be one of those whose hearts do not perceive.
Praise to be Allah who gave me (wisdom) to follow and obey Muhammad, blessings of Allah be on him and on his children, and also peace.
Praise be to Allah who has kept my sustenance in His (own) hand and did not give it to other people (like me) from whom I may have to seek it.
Praise be to Allah who covers my defects and shortcomings and does not disclose my infamy among the people. Praise be to Allah, the one and only.
Three Supplications Taught by Sayyid Muhammad al-Sultanabadi to Shaykh Muhammad Sadiq al-`Iraqi (through Imam Mahdi - peace be upon him) that alleviated his extreme grief and poverty
(1) He taught him that he, after the Dawn Prayers, should put his hand on his chest and repeat seventy times the phrase of:
O Greatest Judge
(2) He taught him to regularly say the following supplicatory prayer that, as is recorded in al-Kafi, the Holy Prophet (s) taught to one of his companions who had been afflicted by disease and poverty. Soon after that, the man recovered health and got rid of poverty. The supplication is this:
لاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاََّ بِٱللَّهِ
la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahi
There is neither might nor power except with Allah.
تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَىٰ ٱلْحَيِّ ٱلَّذِي لاَ يَمُوتُ
tawakkaltu `ala alhayyi alladhi la yamutu
I put my trust in the Ever-living (Lord) Who never dies.
walhamdu lillahi alladhi lam yattakhidh waladan
All praise is due to Allah, Who has not taken a wife or a son
وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ شَرِيكٌ فِي ٱلْمُلْكِ
wa lam yakun lahu sharikun fi almulki
and Who has not have a partner in the kingdom,
وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ وَلِيٌّ مِنَ ٱلذُّلِّ
wa lam yakun lahu waliyyun min aldhdhulli
and Who has not have a helper to save Him from disgrace;
wa kabbirhu takbiran
and magnify Him with all magnificence.
(3) He taught him to say the abovementioned supplication, which is recorded by Ibn Fahad al-Hilli in `Uddat al-Da`i, after the Dawn Prayers.
Our master scholar, Shaykh al-Nuri, in his book of Dar al-Salam, has recorded on the authority of his mentor Fath `Ali al-Sultanabadi that Shaykh Muhammad Sadiq al-`Iraqi had lived in harsh poverty for a long time without finding any solution for his state until he saw, in dream, that he was in a valley where there was an enormous tent with a dome over it.
As he asked about the lord of that tent, he was answered that it was owned by Imam al-Mahdi, the Awaited—the protecting shelter and the relief of the deprived ones—may Allah hasten his reappearance. He therefore hurried towards that tent and complained about his poverty, asking the Imam (`a) to teach him a supplication that would relieve him from his grief and save him from his misfortunes. The Imam, having heard his complaint, instructed him to visit the tent of one of his offspring. He therefore left the Imam’s tent and headed for the tent to which he was guided. When he reached there, he saw Sayyid Muhammad al-Sultanabadi sitting in his prayer-place while he was engaged in uttering supplications and litanies. He greeted him and told him about his story with the Imam.
The Sayyid therefore taught him a supplication that would relieve him from poverty and bring him good sustenance.
When the man woke up, he found that he had learnt that supplication by heart; therefore, he hurried to the house of the Sayyid and found him in the same state that he had seen in the dream. As if the Sayyid had already known about the dream, he welcomed the man and smiled in his face. The man hence asked the Sayyid about that supplication and the Sayyid answered him. Immediately after saying the supplication persistently, the man became so wealthy that fortune covered him from all sides.
Hajj Fath `Ali al-Sultanabadi used to praise the Sayyid so laudably. For some time, he studied under him. The aforementioned three matters were taught by the Sayyid to that man.
You may then say the following:
[This supplication, which is reported from Imam `Ali Amir al-Mu'minin (peace be upon him) at the Night of Hijrah, is said each morning and evening.]
laa elaaha illal laaho wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul mulko wa lahul hamdo, yohyee wa yomeeto, be-yadehil khayro, wa howa a’laa kulle shay-in qadeer.
There is no god, except Allah, the one, there is no partner for Him. For Him is the kingdom and for Him is the praise. He enlivens and gives death, in His hands is the good. And He is powerful over everything.
Ten times after the Morning Prayer, and ten times after Maghrib Prayer; all these would earn ten rewards, and ten sins would be forgiven each of them being equal to freeing slave from the progeny of Ismail, and no sin would be there on anyone, except the polytheist. There is no god, except Allah; He is one and there is no partner for Him. And it is protection for you from all Satans and all evils if you recite between morning and evening
Dua From Holy Prophet(saws) From Mufeed al-Deen in al-Majaalis:
Narrated from Abi Barzah al-Aslami from his father who said: When the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) had offered the Fajr Prayer, he (s.a.w.a.) raised his voice until his companions could hear him say the foll three times each :
allaahumma matte’nee be-sam-e’e wa basaree waj a’lhomal waaresayne minnee wa arenee saaree min a’duwwee.
O Allah! Grant me the use of my hearing and sight and let them stay with me till my death and show me the destruction of my enemies.
From Sayyid Ibn Taaoos in al-Iqbaal: Narrated from Ja’far ibn Muhammad (a.s.) from his father (a.s.), who said in a hadees:
When the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) had completed his Morning Prayer, he (s.a.w.a.) would (continue to) face the Qiblah until sunrise, invoking Allah the Almighty (s.w.t.). At this time, Ali ibn Abi Talib (a.s.) would come forward and sit behind the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) and the people would come to seek permission to ask for their needs, and this is what the Prophet of Allah (s.a.w.a.) had instructed them to do.

 al-Majlisi quotes it from Behaar al-Anwaar, vol. 86, p. 130
 Iqbaal al-Aamaal, p. 320; Behaar al-Anwaar, vol. 35, p. 289
In al-Faqeeh: The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) used to say after the Fajr prayer:
allaahumma innee a-o’ozo beka menal hamme wal huzne wal a’jze wal kasale wal bukhle wal jubne wa zal-i’d dayne wa ghalabatir rejaale wa bawaaril ayyaame wal ghaflate waz zillate wal qaswate wal a’ylate wal maskanate wa a-o’ozo beka min nafsin laa tashba-o’ wa min qalbin laa yakhsha-o’ wa min a’ynin laa tadma-o’ wa min do-a’a-in laa yusma-o’ wa min salaatin laa tanfa-o’ (turfa-o’) wa a-o’ozo beka menim ra-atin toshayyebonee qabla awaana masheebee wa a-o’ozo beka min waladin yakoono a’layya ribban wa a-o’ozo beka min maalin yakoono a’layya a’zaaban wa a-o’ozo beka min saahebe khadee-a’tin in ra-ay hasanatin da-fa-nahaa wa in ra-ay sayye-atan afshaahaa. allahumma laa taj-a’l le-faajerin a’layya (i’ndee) yadan wa laa minnatan.
O Allah! I seek protection with You from grief and sorrow, weakness and laziness, miserliness and cowardice, turning away from the truth and idle talk of men, wasting time and negligence, vileness and cruelty, destitution and poverty. And I seek protection with You from the self that never gets satisfied, the heart that does not humble itself, the eye that does not shed tears, the supplication that is not heard, the prayer that does not benefit. And I seek protection with You from a woman who makes me old before my time, and I seek protection with You from a son who subjugates me, and I seek protection with You from wealth that is a torment for me, and I seek protection from the deceiver who conceals any good that he sees and propagates any evil that he sees. O Allah! Do not let an insolent one ever do me a favor and do not make him expect anything from me.
