Ashura - 10th of Muharram

Ashura - 10th Muharram

Stay awake and listen to the museebah (tragedies) of Imam Husayn (peace be upon him), his family and his companions.
As regarding the reward of spending this whole night with acts of worship, it has been narrated that one who does so shall be considered having worshipped Almighty Allah with the worship of all the angels. Furthermore, to practice acts of worship at this night is equal to seventy-year worship.

Offer a one hundred unit prayer with Surah al-Fatihah once and Surah al-Tawhid three times in each unit. After accomplishment, the following is repeated seventy times:
سُبْحَانَ ٱللَّهِ
subhana allahi
All glory be to Allah,
وَٱلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ
walhamdu lillahi
all praise be to Allah,
وَلاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ ٱللَّهُ
wa la ilaha illa allahu
there is no god save Allah,
وَٱللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ
wallahu akbaru
Allah is the Greatest,
وَلاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِٱللَّهِ ٱلْعَلِيِّ ٱلْعَظِيمِ
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 the All-great.

Offer a four unit prayer at the last hours of this night, reciting Surah al-Fatihah once and repeating Ayah al-Kursi and Surahs al-Tawhid, al-Falaq, al-Nas ten times each. After accomplishment, Surah al-Tawhid is repeated one hundred times.

Offer a four unit prayer with Surah al-Fatihah once and Surah al-Tawhid fifty times, (like the prayer of Imam `Ali Amir al-Mu'minin (peace be upon him), which brings about a tremendous reward).
Sayyid Ibn Tawus says after citing this prayer, “When you finish the fourth units, you may mention Almighty Allah, invoke blessings upon the Holy Prophet and his Household, and curse their enemies as many times as possible.

Offer Salat-ul Tahajjud (Namaz e Shab)

On this day, Imam al-Husayn (peace be upon him) was martyred. It is indeed the day of the calamitous misfortune and the day of grief for the Holy Imams (peace be upon them) and their Shi'as (adherents). Thus, the Shi`ah are required to stop earning any worldly benefit, stop storing anything in their houses, and devote themselves to weeping and mourning the misfortunes of Imam al-Husayn (peace be upon him). They are thus required to hold consolation ceremonies in the same way as they do for their dead sons and relatives.
They are also required to invoke curse upon the enemies and slayers of Imam al-Husayn (peace be upon him) and to express sympathy to each other, saying:
أَعْظَمَ ٱللَّهُ أُجُورَنَا بِمُصَابِنَا بِٱلْحُسَيْنِ عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلاَمُ
a`zama allahu ujurana bimusabina bilhusayni `alayhi alssalamu
May Allah double up our rewards on account of our sorrow for (the martyrdom of) al-Husayn (peace be upon him)
وَجَعَلَنَا وَإِيَّاكُمْ مِنَ ٱلطَّالِبِينَ بِثَأْرِهِ
wa ja`alana wa iyyakum min alttalibina bitha'rihi
and may He include you and us with those who shall take revenge upon his killers
مَعَ وَلِيِّهِ ٱلإِمَامِ ٱلْمَهْدِيِّ مِنَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَلَيْهِمُ ٱلسَّلاَمُ
ma`a waliyyihi al-imami almahdiyyi min ali muhammadin `alayhimu alssalamu
with his blood-claimer; Imam al-Mahdi, who belongs to the Household of Muhammad, peace be upon them all.
The adherents (Shi`ah) of Imam al-Husayn (peace be upon him) should commemorate the martyrdom of their Imam and should weep for him.

Ziyarah 'Ashura & Dua

A great reward is recorded for one who repeats Surah al-Tawhid one thousand times on this day.
Recite Salawáat as many times possible.
It is recommended, on this day, to invoke Almighty Allah to lay curse on the slayers of Imam Husayn (peace be upon him) one thousand times by saying following statement:
اللَّهُمَّ ٱلْعَنْ قَتَلَةَ ٱلْحُسَيْنِ عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلاَمُ
allahumma il`an qatalata alhusayni `alayhi alssalamu
O Allah, (please do) curse the slayers of al-Husayn, peace be upon him.

Sayyid Ibn Tawus has mentioned the supplicatory prayer of Dua 'Asharaat to be said on this day.

The Shi'ah should not eat or drink anything on this day (until late afternoon). This is not a fast and thus should not be kept with the intention of fasting.

Focus on the great tragedy that took place on this day and avoid attending to your business, employment matters, laughing and unnecessary discussions. Imam Ridha (peace be upon him) is reported to have said, “If one refrains from arranging for any worldly benefit on the tenth of Muharram, Almighty Allah will grant him all his needs for this world and the world to come. If one considers the tenth of Muharram to be the day of his misfortune, sadness, and weeping, Almighty Allah will make the Resurrection Day the day of his delight and happiness; and he will be delighted by us in Paradise.

If one offers water to people on this day at the holy tomb of Imam al-Husayn (peace be upon him), his reward will be similar to the reward of one who offered water to the companions of Imam al-Husayn (peace be upon him) at Karbala.

Recite Ziyarah 'Ashura

Recite a four unit salaah (2x2), anytime between Fajr and Dhuhr in the following manner;
In the first unit, after Súra al- Hamd, recite Súra al-Káfirún (109) and in the second unit, after Súra al-Hamd, recite Súra al-Ikhlás.
In the third unit, after Súra al- Hamd, recite Súra al-Ahzáb (33) and in the fourth unit, after Súra al-Hamd, recite Súra al-Munáfiqún (63).

In remembrance of the time Imam Husain (peace be upon him) had the bloodied body of his 6 month old infant son Ali-Asghar in his arms and hesitated while walking towards the tents to hand the body over to the mother!

Take a few steps forward and then retrace your steps to where you began.
Say the following while you are moving forward and backward seven times:
innaa lillaahi wa innaa ilayhi raaji-o ‘ona riz”an bi-qaz”aaa-iheewa tasleeman li-amrihee
Verily we are Allah’s and verily unto Him we return. We are happy with His will and carry out His command

Then go back to your place where you are standing and recite:
allaahumma a’d’d’ibil fajaratal lad’eena shaaqqoo rasoolaka wa h’aaraboo awliyaaa-ika wa a’badoo ghayraka was-tah’alloo muh’aaramaka wal-a’nil qaadata wal atbaa-a’ wa man kaana minhum fa-khabbawa awz”a-a’ma-a’hum aw raz”iya bi-fia’-lihim laa’- nan katheeraa allaahumma wa a’jjil faraja aali muh’ammad waj-a’l s’alawaatika a’layhi wa a’layhim was-tanqid’hum min aydil munaafiqeenal muz”illeena wal kafaratil jaahi’ideena waftah’ lahum fath’an yaseeraa wa atih’ lahum rawh’an wa farajan qareebaa waj-a’l lahum min ladunka a’laa a’duwwika wa a’duwwihim sut’aanan nas’eeraa

O Allah! Condemn and punish the licentious profligates who make the life of Thy Messenger miserable; and waged was against Thy close friends, and worshipped others, (but ) not Thee, deemed lawful (that which) Thou had forbidden, bring a curse upon their leaders, followers, on those who were in them, secretly or distinctly were hand in glove with them, or condoning their (mis) deeds. A great many curses. O my Allah, bid to bring joy and happiness quickly for “Aali Muhammad”, (the children of Muhammad), bestow Thy blessings on him and on them, save them from the dangerous clutches of the undercover two-timers, and the obstinate disbelievers; open for them the doors of “the beginning”, a facility to put in practice gentleness, kindness and fairplay; create favorable conditions for them to make life full of love and thought, cheerful, free of care, as early as possible, on Thy authority let them have full control over Thy enemies, to help, rescue and defend (mankind).

Then raise your hands, having in mind the enemies of “Aale Muhammad”, and say:

اَللّٰهُمَّ اِنَّ كَثِيْرًا مِّنَ الْاُمَّةِ نَاصَبَتِ الْـمُسْتَحْفِظِيْنَ مِنَ الْاَئِمَّة
O my Allah! Indeed a great many among the people declared war, laid traps and intrigued against the careful and gentle guardians who observed and fulfilled the duty.
وَ كَفَرَتْ بِالْـكَلِمَةِ وَ عَكَفَتْ عَلَى الْقَادَةِ الظَّلَمَةِ وَ هَجَرَتِ الْكِتَابَ وَ السُّنَّةَ وَ عَدَلَتْ عَنِ الْـحَبْلَيْنِ الَّذَيْنِ اَمَرْتَ بِطَاعَتِهِمَا وَ التَّمَسُّكِ بِهِمَا فَاَمَاتَتِ الْـحَقَّ وَ حَادَتْ عَنِ الْقَصْدِ وَمَالَأَتِ الْاَحْزَابَ وَ حَرَّفَتِ الْـكِتَابَ وَ كَفَرَتْ بِالـحَقِّ لَـمَّا جَائَهَا وَ تَـمَسَّكَتْ بِالْبَاطِلِ لَـمَّا اعْتَرَضَهَا وَ ضَيَّعَتْ حَقَّكَ وَ اَضَلَّتْ خَلْقَكَ وَ قَتَلَتْ اَوْلاَدَ نَبِيِّكَ وَخِيَرَةَ عِبَادِكَ وَ حَـمَلَةَ عِلْمِكَ وَ وَرَثَةَ حِكْمَتِكَ وَ وَحْيِكَ
The ungratefuls (the said opponents) renounced the faith and did not, in fact, believe in the “Kalimah”; attached themselves to the trend setters of disorder and tyranny; disowned and gave up the Book and the (Divine) rule of life; swerved from and angled off the two strings which according to Thy commandment, (they) should have held fast and stuck close by; undermined and twisted the truth; Went, away from the real purpose, in the opposite direction ; encouraged partisanship; Altered and falsified the Book; refused to believe in the evident proof and rightful claim, whenever confronted face to face; chose falsehood, whenever came across; lost their way and corrupted Thy laws, Islam; led people astray; killed the children of Thy Prophet, Thy liberal highminded servants, bearers of Thy knowledge, inheritors of Thy wisdom and revelation, the Book
اَللّٰهُمَّ فَزَلْزِلْ اَقْدَامَ اَعْدَآئِكَ وَ اَعْدَآءِ رَسُوْلِكَ وَ اَهْلِ بَيْتِ رَسُوْلِكَ اَللّٰهُمَّ وَ اَخْرِبْ دِيَارَهُمْ وَافْلُلْ سِلاَحَهُمْ وَ خَالِفْ بَيْنَ كَلِمَتِهِمْ وَفُتَّ فِىْ اَعْضَادِهِمْ وَ اَوْ هِنْ كَيْدَهُمْ وَ اضْرِبْهُمْ بِسَيْفِكَ الْقَاطِعِ وَارْمِهِمْ بِـحَجَرِكَ الدَّامِغِ وَ طُمَّهُمْ بِالْبَلَآءِ طَمًّا وَ قُمَّهُمْ بِالْعَذَابِ قَمًّا وَ عَذِّبْهُمْ عَذَابًا نُكْرًا وَ خُذْهُمْ بِالسِّنِيْنَ وَ الْـمُثَلاَتِ الَّتِىْ اَهْلَـكْتَ بِهَا اَعْدَآئَكَ اِنَّكَ ذُوْ نِقْمَةٍ مِّنَ الْـمُجْرِمِيْنَ
O my Allah, upset and overturn the plan and movement of Thy enemies, (who are also) the enemies of Thy Messenger and the children of Thy Messenger.
اَللّٰهُمَّ اِنَّ سُنَّتَكَ ضَآئِعَةٌ وَ اَحْكَامَكَ مُعَطَّلَةٌ وَ عِتْرَةَ نَبِيِّكَ فِى الْاَرْضِ هَآئِمَةٌ
اَللّٰهُمَّ فَاَعِنِ الْـحَقَّ وَ اَهْلَهٗ وَ اَقْمَعِ الْبَاطِلَ وَ اَهْلَهٗ وَ مُنَّ عَلَيْنَا بِالنَّجَاةِ وَاهْدِنَا اِلَى الْاِيْـمَانِ وَ عَجِّلْ فَرَجَنَا وَانْظِمْهُ بِفَرَجِ اَوْلِيَآئِكَ وَاجْعَلْهُمْ لَنَاوُدًّا وَاجْعَلْنَا لَـهُمْ وَفْدًا
O my Allah, put a stop to the spread of their sphere of influence; make their equipment and men unserviceable, their expression confused and contradictory; break up their support; crack up their strategy; lay hold upon them, hit and cut off by Thy one sharp strike; throw them down, frightened by Thy hard unnerving barrier, bury them under the swallowing mud of disasters; let them be mean and contemptible under the yoke of despise-able penance; bring them to book and let them have the taste of a hard and sharp retribution; fester them with definite and exemplary punishment, as Thou wipes out Thy enemies; it is beyond the shadow of doubt that Thou cracks down upon the criminals.
اَللّٰهُمَّ وَ اَهْلِكْ مَنْ جَعَلَ يَوْمَ قَتْلِ ابْنِ نَبِيِّكَ وَ خِيَرَتِكَ عِيْدًا وَاسْتَهَلَّ بِهٖ فَرَجًا وَ مَرَحًا وَخُذْ اٰخِرَهُمْ كَمَا اَخَذْتَ اَوَّلَـهُمْ وَ ضَاعِفِ
O my Allah, the way of life approved by Thee has been tossed aside; Thy code of law has been suspended; and the descendents of the Prophet, in this world, had been tormented.
اللّٰهُمَّ الْعَذَابَ وَ التَّنْكِيْلَ عَلٰى ظَالِـمِىْ اَهْلِ بَيْتِ نَبِيِّكَ وَ اَهْلَكْ اَشْيَاعَهُمْ وَ قَادَتَـهُمْ وَ اَبْرِحُـمَاتَـهُمْ وَ جَـمَاعَتَهُمْ اَللّٰهُمَّ وَضَاعِفْ صَلَوَاتِكَ وَ رَحْـمَتِكَ وَ بَرَكَاتِكَ عَلٰى عِتْرَةِ نَبِيِّكَ الْعِتْرَةِ الضَّائِعَةِ الْـخَآئِفَةِ الْمُسْتَذَلَّةِ بَقِيَّةٍ مِّنَ الشَّجَرَةِ الطَّيِّبَةِ الزَّاكِيَةِ الْمُبَارَكَةِ وَ اَعْلِ
O my Allah, Therefore give all Thy attention and care to signify truth, and the upholders of truth; restrain and prevent falsehood, and the camp-followers of false-hood, and take us to safety as a favour; guide us to true faith; make available for us, as soon as possible, happiness and bliss, bring everything in to good order through the inspiring presence of Thy representatives; make us desire and love them , make them receive us with open arms.
اَللّٰهُمَّ كَلِمَتَهُمْ وَ اَفْلِجْ حُجَّتَهُمْ وَاكْشِفِ الْبَلَآءَ وَ اللَّاوَآءَ وَحَنَادِسَ الْاَبَاطِيْلِ وَ الْعَمٰى عَنْهُمْ وَ ثَبِّتْ قُلُوْبَ شِيْعَتِهِمْ وَ حِزْبِكَ عَلٰى طَاعَتِكَ وَ وِلاَيَتِهِمْ وَ نُصْرَتـِهِمْ وَ مُوَالاَتِـهِمْ وَ اَعِنْهُمْ وَامْنَحْهُمُ الصَّبْرَ عَلَى الْاَذٰى فِيْكَ وَاجْعَلْهُمْ اَيَّامًا مَّشْهُوْدَةً وَ اَوْقَاتًا مَّـحْمُوْدَةً مَّسْعُوْدَةً
O my Allah, bring to nothing those who celebrate the day the choicest (grand) son of Thy Prophet was martyred, in cheerful amusement; laugh and enjoy in utter delight and indulge in wanton boisterous merriment; catch hold of and punish each one of the remaining, just as Thou cracked down on the early (culprits); make twice as much the penalty,
تُوْشِكُ فِيْهَا فَرَجَهُمْ وَ تُوْجِبُ فِيْهَا تَـمْكِيْنَهُمْ وَ نَصْرَهُمْ كَمَا ضَمِنْتَ لِاَوْلِيٰآئِكَ فِىْ كِتَابِكَ الْـمُنْزَلِ فَاِنَّكَ قُلْتَ وَ قَوْلُكَ الْـحَقُّ وَعَدَ اللهُ الَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوْا مِنْكُمْ وَ عَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُمْ فِى الْاَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِيْنَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ وَ لَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَـهُمْ دِيْنَهُمُ الَّذِى ارْتَضٰى لَـهُمْ وَ لَيُبَدِّلَـنَّهُمْ مِّنْۢ بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ اَمْنًا يَّعْبُدُوْنَنِىْ لاَ يُشْرِكُوْنَ بِىْ شَيْئًا
O my Allah, and punishment, a warning example, (while convicting the tyrants who took liberties with and abused the children of Thy Prophet; give the earth blow to their henchmen, put an end to their headmen, wipe out their patrons and their groups altogether.
اَللّٰهُمَّ فَاكْشِفْ غُمَّتَهُمْ يَا مَنْ لاَّ يَـمْلِكُ كَشْفَ الضُّرِّ اِلاَّ هُوَ يَا وَاحِدُ يَا اَحَدُ يَا حَىُّ يَا قَيُّوْمُ
وَاَنَا يَا اِلٰـهِىْ عَبْدُكَ الْـخَآئِفُ مِنْكَ وَالرَّاجِعُ اِلَيْكَ السَّآئِلُ لَكَ الْـمُقْبِلُ عَلَيْكَ اللَّاجِئُ اِلٰى فِنَآئِكَ الْعَالِمُ بِاَنَّهٗ لاَ مَلْجَأَ مِنْكَ اِلاَّ اِلَيْكَ
O my Allah, multiply Thy blessings generously, Thy mercy liberally, Thy favours like a windfall, (thou bestows) upon the children of Thy Prophet, who Thy enemies tried to ignore, frighten and corner, the children who are the blooming pride of the fragrant strongly grown and fertile tree. Let people subscribe to and uphold,
اَللّٰهُمَّ فَتَقَبَّلْ دُعَآئِىْ وَاسْـمَعْ يَا اِلٰـهِىْ عَلاَنِيَـتِـىْ وَ نَـجْوَاىَ وَاجْعَلْنِىْ مِـمَّنْ رَضِيْتَ عَمَلَهٗ وَقَبِلْتَ نُسُكَهٗ وَ نَـجَّيْتَهٗ بِرَحْـمَتِكَ اِنَّكَ اَنْتَ الْعَزِيْزُ الْكَرِيْمُ

اَللّٰهُمَّ وَ صَلِّ اَوَّلاً وَ اٰخِرًا عَلٰى مُحَمَّدٍ وَّاٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ بَارِكْ عَلىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَّ اٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَارْحَمْ مُحَمَّدًا وَّ اٰلَ مُحَمَّدٍ بِاَكْمَلِ وَ اَفْضَلِ مَا صَلَّيْتَ وَ بَارَكْتَ وَ تَرَحَّـمْتَ عَلٰى اَنْبِيَآئِكَ وَ رُسُلِكَ وَ مَلَآئِكَتِكَ وَ حَـمَلَةِ عَرْشِكَ بِلَآ اِلٰهَ اِلَّآ اَنْتَ اَللّٰهُمَّ لاَ تُفَرِّقْ بَيْنِىْ وَ بَيْنَ مُحَمَّدٍ وَّ اٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلَوَاتُكَ عَلَيْهِ وَ عَلَيْهِمْ وَاجْعَلْنِىْ يَا مَوْلاَىَ مِنْ شِيْعَةِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَّعَلِىٍّ وَّ فَاطِمَةَ وَ الْحَسَنِ وَ الْحُسَيْنِ وَ ذُرِّيَّتِهِمِ الطَّاهِرَةِ الْـمُنْتَجَبَةِ وَهَبْ لِىَ التَّمَسُّكَ بِـحَبْلِهِمْ وَ الرِّضَا بِسَبِيْلِهِمْ وَ الْاَخْذَ بِطَرِيْقَتِهِمْ اِنَّكَ جَوَادٌ كَرِيْمٌ
O my Allah, their expressed refined (thoughts), and get the better of the antagonists in debate and disputations through their arguments, put the dark clouds of trouble, distress nothingness and ignorance, to flight, through (on account of) them, make firm and strong the hearts and minds of their followers (to know things for certain and give correct answers), to belong to Thy party, obedient to Thee; to love them; to support them ; stand by them, signify them; they exercised self-control whenever they put up with damage and injury in Thy cause; bring in, for them, the days, people will see them and find them among themselves to pronounce the profession of true faith, a blissful and happy time;

Be quick in providing relief and joy, after a long period of suffering (to them and us), on account of their presence; bring on their worthy, decent and refined sphere of influence; and support them as Thou has given a guarantee in this connection in Thy revealed Book; Thou said, (and Thy words are always true): Allah has promised such of you as believe and do good deed that He will surely appoint them successors in the earth, as He appointed successors those before them, and that He will surely establish for them Their religion which He has chosen for them, and surely He will give them in exchange safety after their fear. Thy (shall) ascribe nothing as partner unto Me.

O my Allah! Therefore disperse the dark clouds hanging over them, no one has power to keep safe from pair and distress save He, O Unique ! O Single ! O Everliving ! O Self-subsisting!

I, O my Allah, Thy bondman, cautions and (always) aware of Thy just requital, turn to Thee with a request, standing before Thee, to seek the favour of taking refuge with Thee, in Thy courtyard, fully aware of the fact that there is no way to run away from Thee except unto Thee. O my Allah, accede to my request, take notice of my positive statement and heartfelt secret avowal,

O my Allah, and let me be the one whose conduct satisfies Thee, (whose) pious life devoted to Thee receives Thy approval, (whom) Thou brings to a place of safety through Thy mercy; verily Thou art rare, dear and beloved (because of ) Thy kindness.

O my Allah, send blessings, in the beginning and at the end, on Muhammad and on the children of Muhammad; keep at peace at all times, Muhammad and the children of Muhammad, let Thy love and tenderness always envelop Muhammad and the children of Muhammad, more thoroughly and decisively than Thou had blessed, kept at peace and loved Thy Prophets, Messengers, Angels and the bearers of Thy Arsh, in the name of and for the sake of “LAA ILAAHA ILLAA ANTA”.

O my Allah, let there be no separation (ever) between me and Muhammad and the children of Muhammad, Thy blessings be on him and them; let me be one among the friends and followers of Muhammad, Ali, Fatimah, Hasan and Husayn, and their pure and select descendants; give me the insight to cling to their friendship, and be always ready to walk with them, and make use of their life style; Verily Thou art liberal, Generous and Kind,

Now go into prostration (Sijdah), keep either side of your face on the earth, one after the other, and say:

يَا مَنْ يَحْكُمُ مَا يَشَآءُ وَ يَفْعَلُ مَا يُرِيْدُ اَنْتَ حَكَمْتَ فَلَكَ الْـحَمْدُ مَـحْمُوْدًا مَّشْكُوْرً
O He who decrees that which He wills, does that which He wants. It is Thou who possesses and exercises absolute power; therefore (all) praise is for Thee (only); (Thou alone art) the praiseworthy, the thankworthy.
ا فَعَجِّلْ يَا مَوْلاَىَ فَرَجَهُمْ وَ فَرَجَنَابِهِمْ فَاِنَّكَ ضَمِنْتَ اِعْزَازَهُمْ بَعْدَ الذِّلَّةِ وَ تَكْثِيْرَهُمْ بَعْدَ الْقِلَّةِ وَ اِظْهَارَهُمْ بَعْدَ الْخُمُوْلِ يَا اَصْدَقَ الصَّادِقِيْنَ وَ يَا اَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِـمِيْن
O my Master, let them have a life full of love and peace, and let us share the harmony and bliss with them, because Thou has given a guarantee to put them on the highest pedestal of love, honour and wisdom, after the severest trial and tribulation, to do too much for them , exceeding all bounds, after they had put up with the worldly minimum (in Thy cause), to make them distinct and evident after (Thy enemies) kept them in obscurity, O the Most Truthful ! O the Most Merciful!
ا فَعَجِّلْ يَا مَوْلاَىَ فَرَجَهُمْ وَ فَرَجَنَابِهِمْ فَاِنَّكَ ضَمِنْتَ اِعْزَازَهُمْ بَعْدَ الذِّلَّةِ وَ تَكْثِيْرَهُمْ بَعْدَ الْقِلَّةِ وَ اِظْهَارَهُمْ بَعْدَ الْخُمُوْلِ يَا اَصْدَقَ الصَّادِقِيْنَ وَ يَا اَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِـمِيْن
فَاَسْئَلُكَ يَا اِلٰـهِىْ وَ سَيِّدِىْ مُتَضَرِّعًا اِلَيْكَ بِـجُوْدِكَ وَ كَرَمِكَ بَسْطَ اَمَلِىْ وَ تَـجَاوُزَ عَنِّىْ وَ قَبُوْلَ قَلِيْلِ عَمَلِىْ وَ كَثِيْرِهٖ وَ الزِّيَادَةَ فِىْ اَيَّامِىْ وَ تَبْلِيْغِىْ ذٰلِكَ الْـمَشْهَدَ وَ اَنْ تَـجْعَلَنِىْ مِـمَّنْ يُدْعٰى فَيُجِيْبُ اِلٰى طَاعَتِهِمْ وَ مُوَالاَتِـهِمْ وَ نَصْرِهِمْ وَ تُرِيَنِىْ ذٰلِكَ قَرِيْبًا سَرِيْعًا فِىْ عَافِيَةٍ اِنَّكَ عَلٰى كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ.
I beseech Thee, O my Lord, and Master, humble and weak before Thee, to throw wide open doors of Thy generosity and kindness to let my hope (of fulfillment of heart’s desires) come true, and get and gather what I want in surplus; and make valid my deeds, whether insignificant looking or weighty, prolong my days until I am satisfied with being an eye-witness, and give testimony, and be among those who are called upon, so run to obey them, love them and support them (the descendents of the Holy Prophet); Make me see that very soon, close at hand, in good health sound mind and with believing heart. Verily Thou art able to do all things

Raise your head, look towards the sky and say:
In Thee do I seek refuge that I should be among those who hope not for Thy “Days”, so make me full well and be there, O my Master, through Thy mercy, in that time.
