Month of Dhul-Hijjah

Eid Mubahila

24th Dhul-hijjah

On the twenty-fourth of Dhu’l-Hijjah, the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his family) invited the Christians of Najran for a mubahalah (a confrontation between two disputants where they invoke God’s curse on whichever side holds false beliefs).after exhausting all logical arguements that Jesus was like Adam who was born without Father & mother.Quran 3:58-61 “To those that argue with you concerning Jesus after the knowledge you have received say: ‘Come, let us gather our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves. We will pray together and call down the curse of Allah on every liar’.” [Glorious Quran Chapter 3 verse 61]
Then, the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his family) accompanied ONLY by his family members as his partners in the process set out for invoking Almighty Allah’s curse upon the lying party. As soon as the Christians’ eyes fell on the Holy Prophet’s household, they realized that those individuals were the most truthful and that chastisement would be the share of anyone who would oppose them. They therefore did not dare to participate in the mubahalah and, instead, they agreed to pay a tribute (jizyah) to the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his family).
Mubahila event confirmed the following:-
1. The Superiority of Islam over other Revealed Religions
2. The Prestige of the Five personalities ( who went to Mubahila) in the eyes of Allah swt
3. Who are the 'Ahlul Bayt of the Prophet (pbuh)' &
4. The relationship of Al-Qur'an and the Ahlul Bayt (a.s)
know more.
Also, on the 24th of Dhul-hijjah, Ameerul Momineen (peace be upon him) gave his ring to a beggar while in ruku’ (bowing down in prayer) and the following verse was revealed:
إِنَّمَا وَلِيُّكُمُ اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا الَّذِينَ يُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ وَهُمْ رَاكِعُونَ
Only Allah is your wali (master) and His Messenger and those who believe, those who keep up prayers and pay the poor-rate while they bow. (5:55)


It is recommended to fast and take a Ghusl (ritual bath) on this day.
It is desirable to give charity to the needy on this day, emulating Ameerul Momineen (peace be upon him)
It is also recommended to perform the ziyarah of Imam Ali (peace be upon him) on this day, preferrably by reciting Ziyarah Jamia.

Offer a 2 unit prayer, in each unit after Sura Fatiha, recite Sura Ikhlaas, Aya Kursi (including 2:257 i.e. until hum feeha khalidoon) and Sura Qadr ten times each.
According to a narration reported by Sayyed ibn Tawus in Iqbal from Imam Sadiq (peace be upon him) the reward for this act would equal to one-hundred thousand times of Hajj and Umrah pilgrimages near God and none of the needs of this world and the Hereafter that He asks God the Honorable the Exalted to fulfill would be left unfulfilled as God wills.

Another two rakat prayer
Shaykh al-Tusi and Sayyid Ibn Tawus have reported a two unit prayer ( with any sura) and then imploring for forgiveness seventy times & say this dua

لحمد لله رب العالمين، الحمد لله فاطر السماوات والأرض، 297
الحمد لله الذي له ما في السماوات والأرض، الحمد لله الذي خلق السماوات والأرض وجعل الظلمات والنور ثم الذين كفروا بربهم يعدلون،
الحمد لله الذي عرفني ما كنت به جاهلا ولولا تعريفه إياي لكنت هالكا إذ قال وقوله الحق: قل لا أسألكم عليه أجرا إلا المودة في القربى فبين لي القرابة فقال سبحانه: إنما يريد الله ليذهب عنكم الرجس أهل البيت ويطهركم تطهيرا فبين لي البيت بعد القرابة،
ثم قال تعالى مبينا عن الصادقين الذين أمرنا بالكون معهم والرد إليهم بقوله سبحانه: يا أيها الذين آمنوا اتقوا الله وكونوا مع الصادقين، فأوضح عنهم وأبان عن صفتهم بقوله جل ثناؤه: قل تعالوا ندع أبناءنا وأبناءكم ونساءنا ونساءكم وأنفسنا وأنفسكم ثم نبتهل فنجعل لعنت الله على الكاذبين،
فلك الشكر يا رب! ولك المن حيث هديتني وأرشدتني حتى لم يخف على الأهل والبيت والقرابة فعرفتني نساءهم وأولادهم ورجالهم،
اللهم! إني أتقرب إليك بذلك المقام الذي لا يكون أعظم منه فضلا للمؤمنين ولا أكثر رحمة لهم بتعريفك إياهم شأنه وإبانتك فضل أهله الذين بهم أدحضت باطل أعدائك وثبت بهم قواعد دينك ولولا هذا المقام المحمود الذي أنقذتنا به ودللتنا على اتباع المحقين من أهل بيت نبيك الصادقين عنك الذين عصمتهم من لغو المقال ومدانس الأفعال لخصم أهل الإسلام وظهرت كلمة أهل الالحاد وفعل أولي العناد، فلك الحمد ولك المن ولك الشكر على نعمائك وأياديك،
اللهم! فصل على محمد وآل محمد الذين افترضت علينا طاعتهم وعقدت في رقابنا ولايتهم وأكرمتنا بمعرفتهم وشرفتنا باتباع آثارهم وثبتنا بالقول الثابت الذي عرفوناه، فأعنا على الأخذ بما بصروناه،
واجز محمدا عنا أفضل الجزاء بما نصح لخلقك وبذل وسعه في إبلاغ رسالتك 298 وأخطر بنفسه في إقامة دينك وعلى أخيه ووصيه والهادي إلى دينه والقيم 299
بسنته علي أمير المؤمنين،
وصل على الأئمة من أبنائه الصادقين الذين وصلت طاعتهم بطاعتك، وأدخلنا بشفاعتهم دار كرامتك 300
يا أرحم الراحمين!
اللهم! هؤلاء أصحاب الكساء والعباء يوم المباهلة اجعلهم شفعاءنا، أسألك بحق ذلك المقام المحمود واليوم المشهود أن تغفر لي وتتوب علي إنك أنت التواب الرحيم، اللهم! إني أشهد أن أرواحهم وطينتهم واحدة وهي الشجرة التي طاب أصلها وأغصانها و ارحمنا بحقهم، وأجرنا من مواقف الخزي في الدنيا والآخرة بولايتهم، وأوردنا موارد الأمن من أهوال يوم القيامة بحبهم وإقرارنا بفضلهم واتباعنا آثارهم واهتداءنا بهداهم واعتقادنا ما عرفوناه من توحيدك ووقفونا عليه من تعظيم شأنك وتقديس أسمائك وشكر آلائك ونفي الصفات أن تحلك والعلم أن يحيط بك والوهم أن يقع عليك فإنك أقمتهم حججا على خلقك ودلائل 301
على توحيدك وهداة تنبه عن أمرك وتهدي إلى دينك وتوضح ما أشكل على عبادك وبابا للمعجزات التي يعجز عنها غيرك وبها تبين حجتك وتدعو إلى تعظيم السفير بينك وبين خلقك وأنت المتفضل عليهم حيث قربتهم من ملكوتك واختصصتهم بسرك واصطفيتهم لوحيك وأورثتهم غوامض تأويلك رحمة بخلقك ولطفا بعبادك وحنانا على بريتك وعلما بما تنطوي عليه ضمائر أمنائك وما يكون من شأن صفوتك وطهرتهم في منشئهم ومبتدئهم وحرستهم من نفث نافث إليهم وأريتهم برهانا على من عرض بسوء 302
لهم فاستجابوا لأمرك و شغلوا أنفسهم بطاعتك وملؤوا أجزاءهم من ذكرك وعمروا قلوبهم بتعظيم أمرك وجزءوا 303
أوقاتهم فيما يرضيك وأخلوا دخائلهم من معاريض الخطرات الشاغلة عنك فجعلت قلوبهم مكامن لإرادتك وعقولهم مناصب لأمرك ونهيك وألسنتهم تراجمة لسنتك ثم أكرمتهم بنورك حتى فضلتهم من بين أهل زمانهم والأقربين إليهم فخصصتهم بوحيك وأنزلت إليهم كتابك وأمرتنا بالتمسك بهم والرد إليهم والاستنباط منهم، اللهم! إنا قد تمسكنا بكتابك وبعترة نبيك صلواتك عليهم الذين أقمتهم لنا دليلا وعلما وأمرتنا باتباعهم، اللهم! فإنا قد تمسكنا بهم فارزقنا شفاعتهم حين يقول الخائبون فما لنا من شافعين 305
ولا صديق حميم، واجعلنا من الصادقين المصدقين لهم المنتظرين لأيامهم الناظرين إلى شفاعتهم، ولا تضلنا بعد إذ هديتنا وهب لنا من لدنك رحمة إنك أنت الوهاب آمين رب العالمين، اللهم صل على محمد 306
وعلى أخيه وصنوه أمير المؤمنين وقبلة العارفين وعلم المهتدين وثاني الخمسة الميامين الذين فخر بهم الروح الأمين وباهل الله بهم المباهلين فقال وهو أصدق القائلين: فمن حاجك فيه من بعد ما جاءك من العلم فقل تعالوا ندع إلى آخر الآية ذلك الإمام المخصوص بمؤاخاته يوم الإخاء والمؤثر بالقوت بعد ضر الطوي ومن شكر الله سعيه في هل أتى ومن شهد بفضله معادوه وأقر بمناقبه جاحدوه مولي الأنام ومكسر الأصنام ومن لم تأخذه في الله لومة لائم صلى الله عليه وآله ما طلعت شمس النهار وأورقت الأشجار وعلى النجوم المشرقات من عترته والحجج الواضحات من ذريته 307

25th of Dhul-hijjah - On this blessed day, Surah al-Dahr (or al-Insan No. 76) was revealed praising the Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them) for they had observed fasting for three days and given their food to a poor, an orphan, and a captive for three days respectively. All over these three days, they used to break their fasting with water only.
It is worthy that the followers of the Prophet's family should emulate their masters during these days-especially on the 25th night of the month-and fast on this day while helping the needy and orphans and offering them meals.
