﴿إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ وَمَلاَئِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّون عَلَىٰ ٱلنَّبِيِّ
inna allaha wa mala'ikatahu yusalluna `ala alnnabiyyi
“Surely, Allah and His angels bless the Prophet.
يَا أَيُّهَا ٱلَّذينَ آمَنُوٱ صَلُّوٱ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوٱ تَسْليماً﴾
ya ayyuha alladhina amanu sallu `alayhi wa sallimu tasliman
O you who believe! Call for Divine blessings on him and salute him with a becoming salutation.”
اَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّد ٱلنَّبِيِّ
allahumma salli `ala muhammadin alnnabiyyi
O Allah, send blessings to Muhammad the Prophet,
وَعَلَىٰ ذُرِّيَّتِهِ
wa `ala dhurriyyatihi
upon his offspring,
وَعَلَىٰ أَهلِ بَيْتِهِ
wa `ala ahli baytihi
and upon his Household.

Then, repeat the following litany seven times:
بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
bismi allahi alrrahmani alrrahimi
In the Name of Allah; the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.
وَلاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِٱللَّهِ ٱلْعَلِيِّ ٱلْعَظيِمِ
wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahi al`aliyyi al`azimi
There is neither might nor power save with Allah, the All-high, the All-great.

Then, repeat the following doxology three times:
اَلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ ٱلَّذي يَفْعَلُ مَا يَشَاءُ
alhamdu lillahi alladhi yaf`alu ma yasha'u

وَلاَ يَفْعَلُ مَا يَشَاءُ غَيْرُهُ
wa la yaf`alu ma yasha'u ghayruhu
and none else can ever do whatever one desires save Him.

You may then recite the following dua:

اَللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ مُوجِبَاتِ رَحْمَتِكَ
allahumma inni as'aluka mujibati rahmatika
O Allah! I beseech You for the motives of Your mercy,
وَعَزَائِمِ مَغْفِرَتِكَ

وَٱلنَّجَاةَ مِنَ ٱلنَّارِ
walnnajata mina alnnari

وَمِنْ كُلِّ بِلِيَّةٍ
wa min kulli baliyyatin
and all misfortunes,
وَٱلْفَوْزَ بِٱلْجَنَّةِ
walfawza biljannati
winning Paradise,
وَٱلرِّضْوَانِ في دَارِ ٱلسَّلاَمِ
walrridwani fi dari alssalami
Divine Contentment in the Abode of Peace,
وَجَوَارِ نَبِيِّكَ مُحَمَّدٍ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ ٱلسَّلاَمُ
wa jiwari nabiyyika muhammadin `alayhi wa alihi alssalamu
and the vicinity of Your Prophet Muhammad—peace be upon him and his Household.
اَللَّهُمَّ مَا بِنَا مِنْ نِعْمَةٍ فَمِنْكَ
allahumma ma bina min ni`matin faminka
O Allah, You are certainly the source of each and every favor that covers us.
لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ
la ilaha illa anta
There is no god save You.
أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَ أَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ
astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayka
I pray Your forgiveness and I repent before You.
Then, say the following prayer:
سُبْحَانَكَ لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ
subhanaka la ilaha illa anta
All glory be to You. There is no god save You.
إِغْفِرْ لِي ذُنُوبِي كُلَّهَا جَمِيعاً
ighfir li dhunubi kullaha jami`an
Forgive my sins all in all,
فَإِنَّهُ لاَ يَغْفِرُ ٱلذُّنُوبَ كُلَّهَا جَمِيعاً إِلاَّ أَنْتَ
fa'innahu la yaghfiru aldhdhunuba kullaha jami`an illa anta
for none can forgive all sins save You.

You may then offer the Sunset supererogatory (Nafilah) prayer, which consists of four units of prayer, each two separated by a Taslim statement. You should not utter any word between the two parts of the prayer. According to the Shaykh, it has been narrated that Surah al-Kafirun (No. 109) should be recited in the first unit and Surah al-Tawhid in the second. In the third and fourth units, it is optional to recite any other Surah desired. It has been also narrated that Imam `Ali al-Naqi (al-Hadi) (peace be upon him) used to recite, in the third unit (Rak`ah) of this prayer, Surah al-Fatihah and the first six verses (Ayahs) of Surah al-Hadid, and in the fourth unit, Surah al-Fatihah and the last four verses of Surah al-Hashr.

It is also recommended to repeat the following supplicatory prayer seven times in the last prostration (sajdah) of all supererogatory prayers each night, especially at Friday nights (i.e. the night before Friday):
اَللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ بِوَجْهِكَ ٱلْكَرِيـمِ
allahumma inni as'aluka biwajhika alkarimi
O Allah, I surely beseech You in the name of Your Honorable Face,
وَٱسْمِكَ ٱلْعَظِيمِ
wasmika al`azimi
Your Tremendous Name,
وَمُلْكِكَ ٱلْقَدِيـمِ
wa mulkika alqadimi
and Your Timeless Kingdom,
أَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
an tusalliya `ala muhammadin wa alihi
to send blessings to Muhammad and his Household
وَ أَنْ تَغْفِرَ لِي ذَنْبِيَ ٱلْعَظِيمَ
wa an taghfira li dhanbiya al`azima
and to forgive my enormous sin;
إِنَّهُ لاَ يَغْفِرُ ٱلْعَظِيمَ إِلاَّ ٱلْعَظِيمُ
innahu la yaghfiru al`azima illa al`azimu
for none can forgive the enormous save the All-tremendous (Lord).

You may then repeat the following litany ten times:
مَا شَاءَ ٱللَّهُ
ma sha'a allahu
Only that which Allah wills shall come to pass!
لاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِٱللَّهِ
la quwwata illa billahi
There is no strength save with Allah.
اَسْتَغْفِرُ ٱللَّهَ
astaghfiru allaha
I pray the forgiveness of Allah.

Salaat-ul Ghufaylah between Maghrib and 'Isha

The Post-Evening ('Isha) Prayer Litanies as quoted from Misbah al-Mutahajjid
This supplication reported from Imam Ja'far Sadiq (peace be upon him), is one of the supplications highly recommended for seeking sustenance.


اَللَّهُمَّ إِنَّهُ لَيْسَ لِي عِلْمٌ بِمَوْضِعِ رِزْقِي
allahumma innahu laysa li `ilmun bimawadi`i rizqi
O Allah! verily, I lack acquaintance with the place of my sustenance;
وَإِنَّمَا أَطْلُبُهُ بِخَطَرَاتٍ تَخْطُرُ عَلَىٰ قَلْبِي
wa innma atlubuhu bikhataratin takhturu `ala qalbi
rather, I am seeking it owing to ideas that come upon my mind.
فَأَجُولُ فِي طَلَبِهِ ٱلْبُلْدَانَ
fa-ajulu fi talabihu albuldana
I consequently wander in countries searching for it.
فَأَنَا فِيمَا أَنَا طَالِبٌ كَٱلْحَيْرَانِ
fa-ana fima ana talibun kalhayrani
By doing such, I am as confused as the confounded,
لاَ أَدْرِي أَفِي سَهْلٍ هَوُ أَمْ فِي جَبَلٍ
la adri afi sahlin huwa am fi jabalin
since I do not know whether my sustenance lies in a plain, on a mountain,
أَمْ في أَرْضٍ أَمْ في سَمَاءٍ
am fi ardin am fi sama'in
on the ground, in the air,
أَمْ فِي بَرٍّ أَمْ فِي بَحْرٍ
am fi barrin am fi bahrin
on lands, in seas,
وَعَلَىٰ يَدَيْ مَنْ
wa `ala yaday man
at whose hands,
وَمِنْ قِبَلِ مَنْ
wa min qibali man
or who the source of it is.
وَقَدْ عَلِمْتُ أَنَّ عِلْمَهُ عِنْدَكَ
wa qad `alimtu anna `ilmahu `indaka
I have full knowledge that You know all these,
وَ أَسْبَابَهُ بِيَدِكَ
wa asbabahu biyadika
the causes of them are in Your Hands,
وَ أَنْتَ ٱلَّذي تَقْسِمُهُ بِلُطْفِكَ
wa anta alladhi taqsimuhu bilutfika
and it is You Who distribute it out of Your compassion
وَتُسَبِّبُهُ بِرَحْمَتِكَ
wa tusabbibuhu birahmatika
and cause it out of Your mercy.
اَللَّهُمَّ فَصَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ
allahumma fasalli `ala muhammadin wa alihi
O Allah, please send blessings to Muhammad and his Household
وَٱجْعَلْ يَا رَبِّ رِزْقَكَ لِي وَاسِعاً
waj`al ya rabbi rizqaka li wasi`an
and make, O Lord, Your sustenance that is provided (by You) to me expansive,
وَمَطْلَبَهُ سَهْلاً
wa matlabahu sahlan
my seeking for it easy for me,
وَمَاْخَذَهُ قَرِيباً
wa ma'khadhahu qariban
and its source close to me.
وَلاَ تُعَنِّنِي بِطَلَبِ مَا لَمْ تُقَدِّرْ لِي فيهِ رِزْقاً
wa la tu`annini bitalbi ma lam tuqaddiru li fihi rizqan
Please, do not fatigue me by seeking that which You have not decided for me to take,
فَإِنَّكَ غَنِيٌّ عَنْ عَذَابِي
fa'innaka ghaniyyun `an `adhabi
because You are certainly in no need for tormenting me
وَ أَنَا فَقِيـرٌ إِلَىٰ رَحْمَتِكَ
wa ana faqirun ila rahmatika
while I am in full need for Your mercy.
فَصَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ
fasalli `ala muhammadin wa alihi
(Please) Send blessings upon Muhammad and his Household
وَجُدْ عَلَىٰ عَبْدِكَ بِفَضْلِكَ
wa jud `ala `abdika bifadlika
and confer liberally upon me, Your slave, out of Your graciousness.
إِنَّكَ ذُو فَضْلٍ عَظيم
innaka dhu fadlin `azimin
You are surely the Lord of great favor.
