Ḥajjāl* and Bukayr ibn Muḥammad (‒) Abū Isḥāq ash-Sha‘īrī (‒) Yazīd
ibn Kalthamah that Abū ‘Abdillāh or Abū Ja‘far (‘a.s.) said:
“When you wake up in the morning, say:
‘I arise a believer in Allāh,upon the religion of Muḥammad and his sunnah, the religion of ‘Alī and
his sunnah, and the religion of the Legatees (i.e. the infallible Imāms) and
their sunnah. I believe in their secrets and open declarations, when they are
present or hidden; and I seek Allāh’s refuge from that which the Messenger
of Allāh (ṣ) sought refuge, as did ‘Alī (‘a.s.) and the Legatees; and I desire
from Allāh that which they desired from Him, and there is no might or
power except by [the will of] Allāh.’”
“He (‘a.s.) said: ‘Amīr al-Mu’minīn (‘a.s.) used to say in the mornings:
“Glory be to Allāh, the King, the Most Holy [thrice].” [Then he would
say:] “O Allāh, I seek refuge with You from the waning of Your blessings,
change in the good health You have granted, the suddenness of Your
chastisement, from falling into wretchedness, and from the evil that has
previously befallen in the Book. O Allāh, I beg You by the glory of Your
kingdom, the might of Your strength, the greatness of Your dominion and
Your power over Your creation.”’”

“I asked him: ‘What is meant by the verse wherein Allāh says: And
Ibrāhīm who fulfilled [his duty], [Qur., 53:37]?’ He [‘a.s.] said: ‘Some
words that he pronounced regularly.’ I asked: ‘What were these words?’
He [‘a.s.] said: ‘Whenever he woke up in the morning he would say the

same thing thrice in the evenings.
“I awake and my Lord be praised. I awake without
ascribing anything as a partner to Allāh, and I do not call upon any other
god with Him, nor do I take any guardian besides Him.”
I asked: ‘What did He mean when He said about Nūḥ: Indeed he
was a grateful servant [Qur., 17:3]?’ He [‘a.s.] replied: ‘Some words that
he pronounced regularly.’ I asked: ‘What were these words?’ He [‘a.s.]
said: ‘Whenever he awoke in the morning he would say: He
would say this thrice every morning and thrice every evening.’
“I wake up taking
You as my witness that whatever I have awoken with of blessings and wellbeing
in my religion or of this world – it is all from You alone, without and
partner. So, all praise belongs to You for this, and plentiful gratitude.”
asked: ‘What did He mean when He said about Yaḥyā: And a compassion
from us and a purity [Qur., 19:13]?’ He [‘a.s.] answered: ‘The compassion
of Allāh.’ I said: ‘What was the compassion of Allāh that reached him?’ He
[‘a.s.] said: ‘Whenever he would say: “My Lord” Allāh, to Whom belong
Might and Majesty would say: “I am here O Yaḥyā!”’”

Supplication of ilhaah from imam sadiq (a.s.) narrated from imam mahdi (a.s.)
Abu Naeem Ansari says: I was living on rent in Mecca near the Rukn and a group of men from the tribe Muqassira were also present. Mahmoodi, Allaan e Kulayni, Abu Haysum Dinari and Abu Ja’far Ahwal Hamdani were present amongst them and totally there were about thirty men. I didn’t know of any other pure-hearted Shia from their group except Mohammad bin Qasim Alavi Aqeeqi.
It was the sixth day of Zil Hijjah, 293 Hijrah, when suddenly a young man who was busy in circumambulation wearing two clothes of Ahraam and holding his shoes in his hand, came towards us. His reverence was overwhelming and we stood up involuntarily; all of us stood up from their positions without any exception and greeted him with Salaam. Then he sat down and looked towards his right and left, then said:
Do you people know what Imam Sadiq (A.S.) used to say in the supplication of Il’haah?
We asked: What was it?
He said: He used to say:
“O’ Allah! Indeed I beseech You in You name with which the sky is upright, and with which the earth is upright, and with which we differentiate between truth and evil, and with which we join the separated ones, and with which we segregate the joined ones, and with which we count the number of pebbles, and the weight of the mountains, and the measurement of the Oceans, to bless Mohammad and his holy Progeny, and to give me relief and a point of exit for my affair.
It is reported in the book ‘Al Junnatul Waqiya’ that Imam Mahdi (A.S.) said: Imam Sadiq (A.S.) used to recite this supplication every morning.

:4. Muhammad ibn Fudayl has reported that he wrote a letter to Imam Muhammad al-Taqi (al-Jawad) (`a) asking him to teach him a supplicatory prayer. The Imam’s answer came: In mornings and evening, you may say the following statement:
اللَّهُ ٱللَّهُ ٱللَّهُ رَبِّيَ
allahu allahu allahu rabbi
Allah, Allah, Allah is my lord,
the All-beneficent and All-merciful.
لاَ أُشْرِكُ بِهِ شَيْئاً
la ushriku bihi shay'an
I do not admit any one as partner of Him.
You may then submit your requests.
The previous statement is thus an introductory to the beseeching for any request by the permission of Allah the All-exalted.
5.Recite Ayah al-Kursi (2:255), the last (four) verses of Surah al-Hashr (59:21-24), ten verses of Surah al-Saffat (No. 37), and the following holy verses and doxological statements following them:
warhamni wa tub `alayya innaka anta alttawwabu alrrahimu
have mercy upon me, and accept my repentance, for You are the Oft-Returning, the All-merciful.
SUPPLICATION OF THE SHI'A, WHEN OUR MASTER RISES (May our souls be sacrificed for him)
In tradition, the holy Prophet (peace be on him and on his holy progeny) said: "whoever wanted to be secured from drowning, burnt and theft should recite the following in the morning":
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ ما شاءَ اللَّهُ ، لايَصْرِفُ السُّوءَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ ، بِسْمِ اللَّهِ ما شاءَ اللَّهُ ، لايَسُوقُ الْخَيْرَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ ، بِسْمِ اللَّهِ ما شاءَ اللَّهُ ، ما يَكُونُ مِنْ نِعْمَةٍ فَمِنَ اللَّهِ . بِسْمِ اللَّهِ ما شاءَ اللَّهُ ، لا حَوْلَ وَلا قُوَّةَ إِلّا بِاللَّهِ الْعَلِيِّ الْعَظيمِ ، بِسْمِ اللَّهِ ما شاءَ اللَّهُ ، وَصَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ الطَّيِّبينَ .
By the name of Allah and His wishes, no one turns away evils except Allah, by the name of Allah and His wishes, no one that do convey goods except Allah, by the name of Allah and His wishes, what ever bounty one possess is from Allah, by the name of Allah and His wishes, there is no power nor strength except that of Allah the Exalted, the Greatest, blessing be on Muhammad and on his pure and holy progeny.
Whoever recites this supplication (3) three times in the morning shall be rescued from drowning, burnt and theft till the evening period, and whoever recite it (3) three times in the evening shall be rescued from burnt, drowning and theft till morning period.
Verily Khidr and Ilyas (peace be on them) usually meet in every occasion and departed each other with these very words.
"This is the slogan of my followers which differentiate them from my enemies when the Qa'im shall be coming out"
- Mikyaalil Makarim 1: 193, Bihar ul Anwaar: 39/24 .
From Usul Kafi
3296‒22. Abū ‘Alī al-Ash‘arī (‒) Muḥammad ibn ‘Abdi ‘l-Jabbār (‒)
Ṣafwān, whoever mentioned it [to him] that Abū ‘Abdillāh (‘a.s.) said [when]:
“I said to him: ‘Teach me something that I may recite when the day
dawns and when night falls.’ He [‘a.s.] said: ‘Say:
“All praise belongs to
Allāh Who does as He wishes and no one other than Him can do as he
wishes. All praise be to Allāh, the way Allāh loves to be praised. All praise
be to Allāh, just as He is deserving of it. O Allāh, make me enter upon every
good that you made Muḥammad and the Household of Muḥammad enter,
and take me out of every evil that you took Muḥammad and the Household
of Muḥammad out of it, and the blessing of Allāh be upon Muḥammad and
the Household of Muḥammad.”’”
3305‒31. From him (‒) Muḥammad ibn ‘Alī (‒) ‘Abdu ‘r-Raḥmān ibn
Abī Hāshim (‒) Abū Kḥadījah that Abū ‘Abdillāh (‘a.s.) said:
“Verily supplication before sunrise and sunset is an incumbent practice.
At dawn and sunset, one should say ten times: If he forgets to do
so, he should make up for it just as he makes up for the prayers that he
forgets to perform.
‘There is no deity but Allāh,
alone, without any partner. His is the Kingdom and all praise belongs to
Him. He gives life and causes death, He causes death and gives life, and He
is ever-living and does not die. In His hand is all good and He has power
over all things.’ Then he should say ten times: ‘I seek refuge with Allāh,the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing, from the whisperings of the devils and
I seek Your refuge, O Lord, from their presence near me, indeed Allāh is
3311‒37. al-Ḥusayn ibn Muḥammad (‒) Aḥmad ibn Isḥāq (‒) Sa‘dān
(‒) Dāwūd ar-Raqqī that Abū ‘Abdillāh (‘a.s.) said:
“Never stop reciting the following supplication thrice in the morning
and thrice in the evening: Indeed my father (‘a.s.) used to
say that this is one of the treasured supplications.”
O Allah, I beseech You at the coming of Your night,
wa idbari naharika
the departure of Your daytime,
wa huduri salawatika
the presence of the prayers to You,
wa aswati du`a'ika
and the voices of supplications to You

an tusalliya `ala muhammadin wa ali muhammadin…
to bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad and t
You may now submit your requests.…
Tenth: Imam al-Sadiq (`a) is reported to have said to Dawud al-Raqqi: Do not miss repeating the following supplicatory prayer three times in mornings and three times in evenings:
اَللَّهُمَّ ٱجْعَلْنِي فِي دِرْعِكَ ٱلْحَصِينَةِ
allahumma ij`alni fi dir`ika alhasinati
O Allah, (please) include me with Your invulnerable shield
ٱلَّتِي تَجْعَلُ فِيهَا مَنْ تُرِيدُ
allati taj`alu fiha man turidu
with which You include whomever You want.
The Imam (`a) added: My father (`a) has said, “This is one of the divinely ordered supplicatory prayers.” From Usul Kafi
Ibrāhīm al-Ja‘farī said:
“I heard Aba ‘l-Ḥasan (‘a.s.) saying: ‘When night is about to fall and you
see the sun in the west, about to set, then say this:
This is a security from seven [afflictions], and from the accursed Satan and his offspring.’
“In the name of Allāh, the
Beneficent, the Merciful. All praise belongs to Allāh, Who never took a son
and has no partner in His kingdom. All praise be to Allāh, Who describes
and cannot be described, Who knows but cannot be known. He knows the
treacherous gazes and what is hidden in the hearts, [Qur., 40:19]. I seek refuge
with Allāh’s bountiful countenance and with Allāh’s great name, from the evil
in what is created and released, from the evil that is under the earth, from the
manifest and hidden evil, from the evil of the night and day, from the evil of
Abū Murrah (Satan) and his offspring, from the evil of the beguiling corruptor,
and from the evil of what I have described and what I have nor described; for
all praise belongs to Allāh, Lord of the worlds.”
