Dua'a- Ghareeq

We have been commanded to recite this Dua regularly. Shayikh Sadooq narrates from Abdullah bin Sinan who says that Imam Sadiq (a.s.) said,"After this a time of such doubt will befall you that you will be without the visible signs and a guiding Imam. And no one shall be able to achieve salvation from this except those who recite "Dua-e-Ghareeq."
The narrator asked what this Dua was? Imam (a.s.) replied, After repeating 'Muqallebal Quloob' the narrator added the word, 'Wal absaar' (and the vision). When Imam (a.s.) heard this, he said, "Indeed Allah is the Who changes the hearts and vision, but you recite the Dua as I have said."   (Kamaluddin Vol. 2 Pg. 351)
يَا اَللَّهُ يَا رَحْمٰنُ يَا رَحِيمُ
ya allahu ya rahmanu ya rahimu
O Allah! O All-beneficent! O All-merciful!
يَا مُقَلِّبَ ٱلْقُلُوبِ
ya muqalliba alqulubi
O Turner of hearts!
ثَبِّتْ قَلْبِي عَلَىٰ دِينِكَ
thabbit qalbi `ala dinika
Keep firm my heart on your religion

Dua'a e Marefat e Imam (atfs) -short    

Zurarah a companion of Imam Sadiq (as) asked “What is the best action during occultation?” Imam (as) replied Always recite the following supplication. 
   اَللّٰهُمَّ عَرِّفْنِىْ نَفْسَك َ -   فَاِنَّكَ اِنْ لَّمْ تُعَرِّ فْنِىْ نَفْسَكَ لَمْ اَعْرِفْ رَسُوْلَكَ
Allahumma a'arifni nafsak. Fa innaka in lam to arrifni nafsaka lam a'rif nabiyeka.
O Allah introduce Your self to me - For, if you do not introduce Your self to me, I will not recognize Your Prophet (saws).
 اَللّٰهُمَّ عَرِّفْنِىْ رَسُوْلَكَ  -  فَاِنَّكَ اِنْ لَمْ تُعَرِّ فْنِىْ رَسُوْلَكَ لَمْ اَعْرِفْ حُجَّتَكَ
Allhumma a'rifni rasoolaka fa innaka in lam to a'rifni rasoolaka, lam a'rif hujjatak.
O Allah make me recognize Your Prophet (saws) ,- because if I do not recognize Your Prophet (saws), I will not recognize Your Proof [Imam (as)].
 اَللّٰهُمَّ عَرِّفْنِىْ حُجَّتَكَ  -  فَاِنَّكَ اِنْ لَّمْ تُعَرِّ فْنِىْ حُجَّتَكَ ضَلَلْتُ عَنْ دِيْنِىْ
Allahumma a'rrifni hujjatak fa innaka in lam to a'rifni hujjatak, zalal to an deeni.
O Allah make me recognize Your Proof (Imam) - For, if  you do not make me recognize Your Proof , I will deviate from my religion

The Supplication During the Age of Occultation -Long version    


Through a valid chain of authority, it has been narrated that Shaykh Abu-`Amr, the first Emissary (safir) of Imam al-Mahdi (`a) dictated the following supplicatory prayer to Abu-Muhammad ibn Hammam and ordered him to say it [frequently]. This supplication has been also recorded by Sayyid Ibn Tawus in his book of Jamal al-Usbu` following a number of other supplications to be said after the `Asr Prayers on Fridays and after the major prayer. He added the following:
If you, due to a justifiable excuse, cannot do any of the aforementioned rites, beware lest you ignore saying this supplication, because I personally have recognized the great merit of it through a grace of Almighty Allah that He has bestowed upon me exclusively; therefore, you may rely upon this supplication, which is as follows:
اَللَّهُمَّ عَرِّفْنِي نَفْسَكَ
allahumma `arrifni nafsaka
O Allah, make me recognize You,
فَإنَّكَ إنْ لَمْ تُعَرِّفْنِي نَفْسَكَ
fa'innaka in lam tu`arrifni nafsaka
because if You do not make me recognize You,
لَمْ اعْرِفْ رَسُولَكَ
lam a`rif rasulaka
I will not recognize Your Messenger.
اَللَّهُمَّ عَرِّفْنِي رَسُولَكَ
allahumma `arrifni rasulaka
O Allah, make me recognize Your Messenger,
فَإِنَّكَ إنْ لَمْ تُعَرِّفْنِي رَسُولَكَ
fa'innaka in lam tu`arrifni rasulaka
because if You do not make me recognize Your Messenger,
لَمْ اعْرِفْ حُجَّتَكَ
lam a`rif hujjataka
I will not recognize Your Argument.
اَللَّهُمَّ عَرِّفْنِي حُجَّتَكَ
allahumma `arrifni hujjataka
O Allah, make me recognize Your Argument,
فَإنَّكَ إنْ لَمْ تُعَرِّفْنِي حُجَّتَكَ
fa'innaka in lam tu`arrifni hujjataka
because if You do not make me recognize Your Argument,
ضَلَلْتُ عَنْ دِينِي
dalaltu `an dini
I will stray off the path to my religion.
اَللَّهُمَّ لاَ تُمِتْنِي مِيتَةً جَاهِلِيَّةً
allahumma la tumitni mitatan jahiliyyaatan
O Allah, do not make me die like the death of those who have not recognized Islam
وَلاَ تُزِغْ قَلْبِي بَعْدَ إذْ هَدَيْتَنِي
wa la tuzigh qalbi ba`da idh hadaytani
and do not cause my heart to stray off after You have guided me.
اَللَّهُمَّ فَكَمَا هَدَيْتَنِي لِوِلاَيَةِ مَنْ فَرَضْتَ عَلَيَّ طَاعَتَهُ
allahumma fakama hadaytani liwilayati man faradta `alayya ta`atahu

This is from the supplications recorded by Sayyed Ibn Taawoos (a.r.) in ‘Mohijj al-Dawaat’ in a tradition Behaar al-Anwaar, vol. 95, p. 332.regarding the occultation of Hazrat Mahdi (a.t.f.s.). Narrator asked, ‘And what should your Shias do (during occultation)?’ Imam (a.s.) replied, ‘It is necessary for you to pray and wait for the reappearance.’ The tradition continues till the narrator asked, ‘Then how should we pray?’ Imam (a.s.) replied, ‘Say’.
اََللّهُمّ اَنْتَ عَرّفْتَنِىْ نَفْسَكَ، وَ عَرّفْتَنِیْ رَسُولَكَ، وَ عَرّفْتَنِیْ مَلَءِكَتَكَ، وَ عَرّفْتَنِیْ وُلَةَ اَمْرِكَ. اََللّهُمّ لَ آخِذُ اِلّ مَا اَعْطَيْتَ، وَ لَ اَقِیْ اِلّ مَا وَ قَيْتَ. اََللّهُمّ لَ تُغَيّبْنِیْ عَنْ مَنَازِلِ اَوْلِيَائِكَ، وَ لَ تُزِغْ قَلْبِیْ بَعْدَ اِذْ هَدَيْتَنِیْ. اََللّهُمّ اهْدِنِیْ لِوِلَيَةِ مَنِ افْتَرَضْتَ طَاعَتَهُ. 1

Shaykh Tabarsi (a.r.), the renowned commentator of the Holy Quran, has recorded this supplication in his book ‘Kunooz al- Najaah’ and says, ‘This supplication was taught by our master Saaheb al-Zamaan (a.t.f.s.) to Abul Hasan Muhammad Ibn Ahmad Ibn Abi al-Lais in the city of Baghdad at the Graves of Quraish ( مقابر قريش ), where the latter had taken refuge, due to fear of death. On account of the blessings of this supplication, he was saved. This dua'a is attributed to the living Imam Mehdi (atfs). It brings immediate help from our living imam. It is recommended to be recited often by Ulama .Kafami says in his book Baladul Amin that if a wrongfully confined prisoner recites this dua'a he will soon be set free.
If a person find himself surrounded by misfortunes or intrigues he must recite this dua'a to come through tight situations, deadlock and crises.

Supplication 2 for Great Calamities through Another Narration1
Sayyed Ibn Taawoos (a.r.) mentions, ‘The prayers of al-Hujjah al- Qaem (a.t.f.s.) consists of two rak’ats. In each unit, Surah al-Hamd is recited, wherein the sentence ‘ ايّك نعبدُ و ايك نستعي ’ is to be recited hundred (100) times. After this Surah, recite Surah al-Tawheed once and then, supplicate in the following manner:
اَللّهُم عَظُ مَ الْبَلَاءُ، وَ بَرِ حَ الْخَفَاءُ وَ انْكَشَفَ الْغِطَاءُ، وَ ضَاقَتِ الْاَرْضُ بِم اَ وَسكِعَتِ السكّمَاءُ، وَ اِلَيْككَ ي اَ رَب الْمُشْتَكٰى، وَ عَلَيْككَ الْمُعَوّلُ فِىْ الشّدّةِ وَ الرّخَاءِ. اَللّهُم صكَلّ عَلىٰ مُحَمّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمّدٍ، الّذِيْنكَ اَمَرْتَن اَ بِطَاعَتِهِمكْ، وَ عَجّلِ اللّهُمّ فَرَجَهُمْ بِقَائِمِهِمْ، وَ اَظْهِرْ اِعْزَازَهُ. يَا مُحَمّدُ يَا عَلِيّ، يَا عَلِيّ يَا مُحَمّدُ، اكْفِيَانِىْ فَاِنّكُمَا كَافِيَايَ، يَا مُحَمّدّ يَا عَلِيّ، يَا عَلِيّ يَا مُحَمّدُ، اُنْصُرَانِىْ فَاِنّكُمَا نَاصِرَايَ، يَا مُحَمّدُ يَا عَلِيّ يَا عَلِيّ يَا مُحَمّدُ اِحْفَظَانِىْ فَاِنّكُمَا حَافِظَايَ. يَا مَوْلَايَ يَا صَاحِبَ الزّمَانِ، يَا مَوْلَايَ يَا صَاحِبَ الزّمَانِ، يَا مَوْلَايَ يَا صَاحِبَ الزّمَانِ، الْغَوْثَ الْغَوْثَ الْغَوْثَ اَدْرِكْنِىْ اَدْرِكْنِىْ اَدْرِكْنِىْ، اَلْاَمَانَ اَلْاَمَانَ اَلْاَمَانَ.1
Jamaal al-Usboo’, p. 170; Behaar al-Anwaar, vol. 91, p. 190; Wasaael al-Shia, vol. 8, p. 185

Al-Kaf`ami, in al-Misbah, says “This is the prayer of Imam al-Mahdi(ajtfs)

اَللَّهُمَّ ٱرْزُقْنَا تَوْفِيقَ ٱلطَّاعَةِ

Supplication which was ordered by the eighth Imam (peace be on him) to be recited during the days of occultation
Supplication for Repelling Calamities from Imam-e- Zamaan (a.t.f.s.):
Among the invocations narrated for the protection and safety for our master Imam al-Mahdi (a.t.f.s.), is the one related by the renowned Sayed, Ali Ibn Tawoos (a.r.) in Jamaal al-Usboo’.p.307; Behaar al-Anwaar, vol. 102, p. 112.114.
He writes, “This invocation for Imam-e-Asr (a.s.) has been narrated by Imam Reza (a.s.). narrated to me from my ancestor Abu Ja’far al-Tusi (a.r.) who says, ‘Ibn Abi Jayyed has informed me from Muhammad Ibn Hasan Ibn Saeed Ibn Abdullah, and al-Himyari, and Ali Ibn Ibrahim, and Muhammad Ibn Hasan al- Saffaar, all of them, from Ibrahim Ibn Hashim, from Ismaeel Ibn Madaar and Saleh Ibn al-Sanadi, from Yunus Ibn Abd al-Rehman.
Yunus Ibn Abd al-Rehman says that Imam Reza (a.s.) exhorted us to recite this supplication for Imam al-Mahdi (a.t.f.s.). Shaykh Taqi al-Din Ibrahim al-Kaf’ami has also narrated it in his famous work, al-Misbaah among the acts of Friday, relating from Yunus Ibn Abd al-Rehman, on the authority of Imam Reza (a.s.). In this supplication, we seek the safety of Imam (a.s.) and dispelling all calamities from him. We also seek guidance and steadfastness in belief from Allah, Mighty and Glorified be He, for ourselves during the period of his prolonged occultation, his early reappearance and the establishment of justice and equity with his reappearance.
The supplication which was ordered by the eighth Imam (peace be on him) to be recited during the days of occultation. Sayyid Ali bn Taaus in Jamalil Usbuy said: Imam Rida (peace be on him) usually command reading the following supplication for the leader of the time (peace be on him).
اَللّٰهُمَّ ادْفَعْ عَنْ وَلِيِّكَ وَخَلِيْفَتِكَ
، وَحُجَّتِكَ عَلٰى خَلْقِكَ،
وَلِسَانِكَ الْمُعَبِّرِ عَنْكَ بِاِذْنِكَ،
اَلنَّاطِقِ بِحِكْمَتِكَ،
وَعَيْنِكَ النَّاظِرَةِ عَلٰى بَرِيَّتِكَ، وَشَاهِدِكَ عَلٰى خَلْقِكَ، اَلْجَحْجَاحِ الْمُجَاهِدِ،
اَلْعَاۤئِذِ بِكَ عِنْدَكَ۔
وَاَعِذْهُ مِنْ شَرِّ جَمِيْعِ مَا خَلَقْتَ وَبَرَاْتَ، وَاَنْشَاْتَ وَصَوَّرْتَ،
وَاحْفَظْهُ مِنْ بَيْنِ يَدَيْهِ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِ، وَعَنْ يَمِيْنِهِ وَعَنْ شِم
َالِهِ، وَمِنْ فَوْقِهِ وَمِنْ تَحْتِهِ بِحِفْظِكَ الَّذِيْ لَاي
َضِيْعُ مَنْ حَفِظْتَهُ بِهِ، وَاحْفَظْ فِيْهِ رَسُ
وْلَكَ وَاٰبَاۤءَهُ، اَئِمَّتَكَ وَدَعَاۤئِمَ دِيْنِكَ۔
وَاجْعَلْهُ فِيْ وَدِيْعَتِكَ الَّتِيْ لَاتَضِيْعُ،
وَفِيْ جِوَارِكَ الَّذِيْ لَايُخْفَرُ، وَفِيْ مَنْعِكَ وَعِزِّكَ الَّذِيْ لَايُقْهَرُ،
وَاٰمِنْهُ بِاَمَانِكَ الْوَثِيْقِ،
اَلَّذِيْ لَايُخْذَلُ مَنْ اٰمَنْتَهُ بِهِ،
وَاجْعَلْهُ فِيْ كَنَفِكَ الَّذِيْ لَايُرَامُ مَنْ كَانَ فِيْهِ،
وَاَيِّدْهُ بِنَصْرِكَ الْعَزِيْزِ،
وَاَيِّدْهُ بِجُنْدِكَ الْغَالِبِ،
وَقَوِّهِ بِقُوَّتِكَ،
وَاَرْدِفْهُ بِمَلَاۤئِكَتِكَ، وَوَالِ مَنْ وَالَاهُ،
وَعَادِ مَنْ عَادَاهُ،
وَاَلْبِسْهُ دِرْعَكَ الْحَصِيْنَةَ، وَحُفَّهُ بِالْمَلَاۤئِكَةِ حَفًّا۔
اَللّٰهُمَّ وَبَلِّغْهُ اَفْضَلَ مَا بَلَّغْتَ الْقَاۤئِمِيْنَ بِقِسْطِكَ مِنْ اَتْبَاعِ النَّبِيِّيْنَ۔ اَللّٰهُمَّ اشْعَبْ بِهِ الصَّدْعَ،
وَارْتُقْ بِهِ الْفَتْقَ،
وَاَمِتْ بِهِ الْجَوْرَ،
وَاَظْهِرْ بِهِ الْعَدْلَ، وَزَيِّنْ بِطُوْلِ بَقَاۤئِهِ الْاَرْضَ،
وَاَيِّدْهُ بِالنَّصْرِ،
وَانْصُرْهُ بِالرُّعْبِ،
وَقَوِّ نَاصِرِيْهِ،
وَاخْذُلْ خَاذِلِيْهِ،
وَدَمْدِمْ عَلٰى مَنْ نَصَبَ لَهُ، وَدَمِّرْ مَنْ غَشَّهُ۔
وَاقْتُلْ بِهِ جَبَابِرَةَ الْكُفْرِ،
وَعُمُدَهُ وَدَعَاۤئِمَهُ،
وَاقْصِمْ بِهِ رُؤُوْسَ الضَّلَالَةِ وَشَارِعَةَ الْبِدَعِ،
وَمُمِيْتَةَ السُّنَّةِ،
وَمُقَوِّيَةَ الْبَاطِلِ،
وَذَلِّلْ بِهِ الْجَبَّارِيْنَ،
وَاَبِرْ بِهِ الْكَافِرِيْنَ وَجَمِيْعَ الْمُلْحِدِيْنَ،
فِيْ مَشَارِقِ الْاَرْضِ وَمَغَارِبِهَا،
وَبَرِّهَا وَبَحْرِهَا،
وَسَهْلِهَا وَجَبَلِهَا، حَتَّى لَاتَدَعَ مِنْهُمْ دَيَّارًا،
وَلَاتُبْقِيَ لَهُمْ اٰثارًا۔ اَللّٰهُمَّ طَهِّرْ مِنْهُمْ بِلَا

Two supplications of Imam Mahdi (a.s.) ( Source Tohfatul Hashmiya)
These two brief supplications learnt by heart would be heavy in weight on the balance of deeds in the Hereafter.
First supplication Muhajjut Dawat, Pg. 182, Quoted from Mujarribat al-Imamiya, Pg. 390
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ يَا مَالِكَ الرِّقَابِ وَ هَازِمِ اْلاَحْزَابِ يَا مُفَتِّحَ اْلاَبْوَابِ يَا مُسَبِّبَ اْلاَسْبَابِ، سَبِّبْ لَنَا سَبَبًا لاَ نَسْتَطِيْعُ لَهُ طَلْباً، بِحَقِّ لاَ اِلٰهَ إِلاَّ اللهُ مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَوَاتُ اللهِ عَلَيْهِ وَ اٰلِهِ اَجْمَعِيْنَ.
Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eem. Yaa maalikar riqaabi wa haazimil ah’zaabi yaa muftih’al abwaab. yaa musabbibal asbaab Sabbib lanaa sababal laa nastat’eeu’ lahu t’albaa. Bih’aqqi laa ilaaha illallaahu muh’ammadur rasoolullaahi s’alawaatullaahi a’laihi wa aalihi ajmae’e’n.
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. O owner of the slaves and the vanquisher of the confederations. O opener of the doors. O cause of the causes. Make a cause for us as we are not capable to seek it. By the right of “there is no god except Allah. Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.” Allah’s blessings be on him and all his progeny.
Second supplication
اِلٰهِىْ بِحَقِّ مَنْ نَاجَاكَ، وَ بِحَقِّ مَنْ دَعَاكَ فِىْ الْبِرِّ وَ الْبَحْرِ، صَلِّ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اٰلِهِ، وَ تَفَضَّلْ عَلٰی فُقَرَآءِ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ بِالْغِنٰي وَ السِّعَةِ، وَ عَلٰی مَرْضَی الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ بِالشَّفَاءِ وَ الصِّحَّةِ وَ الرَّاحَةِ، وَ عَلٰی اَحْيَاءِ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ بِاللُّطْفِ وَ الْكَرَامَةِ، وَ عَلٰی اَمْوَاتِ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ بِالْمَغْفِرَةِ وَ الرَّحْمَةِ، وَ عَلٰی غُرَبَاءِ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ بِالرَّدِّ إِلٰی اَوْطَانِهِمْ سَالِمِيْنَ غَانِمِيْنَ بِحَقِّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَّ اٰلِهِ اَجْمَعِيْنَ.
Ilaahi bih’aqqi man naajaak. Wa bih’aqqi min dua’a’k. fil baari wal bah’r. s’alli a’laa muh’ammadinw wa aalih.

Wa a’laa ghurabaa-il mu-mineena wal mu-minaati bir raddi ilaa aut’aanihim saalimeena ghaanimeena bih’aqqi muh’ammadinw wa aalihi ajmae’e’n
O my God, by the right of one whom You saved. And by the right of one who called You in the land and the sea. Bless Muhammad and his progeny. And favor the poor believing men and women by needlessness and prosperity. And the ailing believers with cure and health. And the living believing men and women by grace and kindness. And the departed believing men and women by forgiveness and mercy. And make those of the believing men and women who are away from their homeland to return to their native places, safe and enriched. By the right of Muhammad and all his progeny.

Prayer of the Twelfth Imam for fulfillment of needs[1]Al-Imam al-Mahdi wa Zuhoorehi, As-Sayyid Jawwad ash-Shahroodi, Pg. 335
One who has a need should perform Ghusl on Friday eve after midnight, and come to the place of prayers and perform two rakats (units) prayer and in the first rakat he should recite Surah al-Hamd and when he reaches: “Iyyaka Na’budoo we iyyaka Nastaeen”, he should repeat this a hundred times and continue with the Surah and after that recite Surah Tawheed once. Then he should perform the Ruku (bowing) and Sajdahs (prostration) and therein recite the recitations of Ruku and Sajdah seven times. Then recite the second rakat also in the same manner and then recite the following supplication. The Almighty Allah would fulfill his needs, whatever sort of a person he is, however he should not be of those who have broken off relation with his relatives. The supplication is as follows:
اَللَّهُمَّ اِنْ اَطَعْتُكَ فَالْمَحْمَدَةُ لَكَ، وَ إِنْ عَصَيْتُكَ فَالْحُجَّةُ لَكَ، مِنْكَ الرَّوْحُ وَ مِنْكَ الْفَرَجُ، سُبْحَانَ مَنْ اَنْعَمَ وَ شَكَرَ سُبْحَانَ مَنْ قَدَّرَ وَ غَفَرَ اللَّهُمَّ إِنْ كُنْتُ عَصَيْتُكَ فَإنِّیْ قَدْ اَطَعْتُكَ فِىْ اَحَبِّ اْلاَشْيَاءِ إِلَيْكَ وَ هُوَ الإِيْمَانُ بِكَ لَمْ اَتَّخِذْ لَك وَلَدًا وَّ لَمْ اَدْعُ لَك شَرِيْكًا مَنًّا مِنْكَ بِهِ عَلَىَّ لاَ مَنَّا مِنِّیْ بِهِ عَلَيْكَ وَ قَدْ عَصَيْتُكَ يَا إِلٰهِىْ عَلٰی غَيْرِ وَجْهِ الْمُكَابَرَةِ وَ لاَ الْخُرُوْجِ عَنْ عُبُوْدِيَّتِكَ وَ لاَ الْجُحُوْدِ لِرُبُوْبِيَّتِكَ وَ لٰكِنْ اَطَعْتُ هَوٰاىَ وَ اَزَلَّنِيْ الشَّيْطَانُ فَلَكَ الْحُجَّةُ عَلَىَّ وَ الْبَيَانُ فَإِنْ تُعَذِّبْنِيْ فَبِذُنُوْبِىْ غَيْرُ ظَالِمٍ لِىْ، وَ إِنْ تَغْفِرْ لِىْ وَ تَرْحَمْنِيْ فَإِنَّكَ جَوَادٌ كَرِيْمٌ يَا كَرِيْمُ يَا كَرِيْمُ...

O Allah, if I obey You, then the essence of praise is for You, and if I disobey You then the Proof is for You. From You is comfort and from You is success. Glory be to the one who has bestowed favors and thanked. Glory be to the One who commanded and forgave. O Allah, if I am disobedient to you, then I indeed I have also obeyed You in those matters that You prefer most, and it is belief (faith) in You. I have not taken for You any son and neither have I considered anyone Your partner even then the favor is from you upon me and there is no favor from me upon You. Also I have indeed disobeyed You O My Allah, this disobedience was not due to pride or due to leaving Your worship or due to the denial of Allah. It is only that I have obeyed my desires and the Satan misled me. Then Your proof is complete upon me and Your decision. Then if You punish me for my sins, You would not be unjust to me. But if You forgive me and have mercy on me, then indeed You are the Generous, the Kind, O Kind O Kind …. (till the breath breaks)
Then say after this:
يَا آمِنًا مِنْ كُلِّ شَیْءٍ وَ كُلُّ شَىْءٍ مِنْكَ خَائِفٌ حَذِرٌ اَسْاَلُكَ بِاَمْنِكَ مِنْ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ وَ خَوْفِ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ مِنْك اَنْ تُصَلِّىَ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَنْ تُعْطِيَنِيْ اَمَانًا لِنَفْسِىْ وَ اَهْلِىْ وَ وَلَدِىْ وَ سَائِرِ مَا اَنْعَمْتَ بِهِ عَلَىَّ حَتَّی لاَ اَخَافَ وَ لاَ اَحْذَرَ مِنْ شَىْءٍ اَبَدًا إِنَّكَ عَلٰی كُلِّ شَیْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ وَ حَسْبُنَا اللهُ وَ نِعْمَ الْوَكِيْلُ يَا كَافِىَ إبْرَاهِيْمَ نَمْرُوْدَ وَ يَا كَافِىَ مُوْسٰی فِرْعَوْنَ اَسْاَلَُكَ اَنْ تُصَلِّىَ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ اَنْ تَكْفِيَنِيْ شَرَّ فُلاَنَ بْنَ فُلاَنٍ.
Yaa aaminam min kulli shai-inw wa kullu shai-im minka khaa-ifun h’adhirun as-aluka bi-amnika min kulli shai-inw wa khaufi kulli shai-im minka an tus’alliya a’laa muh’ammadinw wa aali muh’ammad. Wa antut’ t’iyanee amaanal linafsee wa ahlee wa waladee wa saa-iri maa an-a’mta bihi a’layya h’atta laa akhaafa wa laa ah’dhara min shai-in abadan innaka a’laa kulli shai-in qadeer. Wa h’asbunallaahu wa ni’mal wakeel. Yaa kaafiya ibraaheema numrooda wa yaa kaafiya moosaa fira’una as-aluka antus’alliya a’laa muh’ammadinw wa aali muh’ammadinw wa antakfiyanee sharra fulaanabna fulaan.
O One Who is safe from everything and everything is fearful of Him. I ask in the name of this safety and in the name of the fearfulness of everything that You bless Muhammad and the Progeny of Muhammad and accord me safety in my self, my family and my children, so in me also no fear remains of anything, ever. You are powerful over everything and Allah is sufficient for us and the best of the executors. O one who sufficed for Ibrahim against Nimrod and sufficed for Musa against Pharaoh. I beseech You that You bless Muhammad and the Progeny of Muhammad and be sufficient for me against the mischief of the enemy. (Then soon Allah would prevent the mischief of one whose mischief one fears).
Then prostrate and ask for the needs, and beseech Allah. No believing man or woman ever recites this sincerely except that the doors of heavens open to fulfill his or her needs and it will be accepted at that very moment at the place he or she is and this is a blessing of Allah upon the people.
