Month of Rajab

Dua to be recited after Every Obligatory Prayer

It has been narrated from Imam Jafar Sadiq; In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent the All-merciful. You may say the following (supplicatory prayer) each day in Rajab; in mornings, evenings, and after each of the obligatory prayers:


يَا مَنْ ارْجُوهُ لِكُلِّ خَيْرٍ
Yaa Man Arjoohoo Likulli Khayr
O He Whom alone I hope for all good things
وآمَنُ سَخَطَهُ عِنْدَ كُلِّ شرٍّ
Wa-Aamanu Sakhatahoo `Inda Kulli Sharr
and Whose wrath I do not expect when I do wrong!
يَا مَنْ يُعْطِي ٱلْكَثِيرَ بِٱلْقَلِيلِ
Yaa Manyu`Til-Katheera Bil-Qaleel
O He Who recompenses the little deed with very much reward!
يَا مَنْ يُعْطَي مَنْ سَالَهُ
Yaa Manyu`Tee Man Sa-Alah
O He Who answers one who begs Him!
يَا مَنْ يُعْطي مَنْ لَمْ يَسْالْهُ وَمَنْ لَمْ يَعْرِفْهُ
Yaa Manyu`Tee Man Lam Yas-Alhu Wa-Mal-Lam Ya`Rifhu
O He Who gives those who do not ask Him and do not even recognize Him
تَحَنُّناً مِنْهُ وَرَحْمَةً
Tahannunam Minhu Warahmah
out of His kindness and mercifulness!
اعْطِنِي بِمَسْالتِي مِنْ جَمِيعِ خَيْرِ ٱلدُّنْيَا
A`Tinee Bimasalatee Iyyaak Jamee`A Khayrid-Dunyaa
(Please do) give me, for I pray You, the whole welfare of this world
وَجَمِيعِ خَيْرِ ٱلآخِرَةِ
Wajamee`A Khayril-Aakhirah
and the whole welfare of the Next World
وَٱصْرِفْ عَنّي بِمَسْالَتي إِيَّاكَ
Wasrif `Annee Bimas-Alatee Iyyaak
and save me, for I pray You,
جَميعَ شَرِّ ٱلدُّنْيا وَشَرِّ ٱلآخِرَة
Jamee`A Sharrid-Dunyaa Washarril Aakhirah
the whole evil of this world and the Next World.
فَإِنَّهُ غَيْرُ مَنْقُوصٍ مَا اعْطَيْتَ
Fainnahoo Ghayru Manqoosin Maa A`Tayt Wazidnee
Verily, all that which You give is unblemished.
وَزِدْنِي مِنْ سَعَةِ فَضْلِكَ يَا كَرِيمُ
Min Fadhlika Yaa Kareem
(Please do) increase Your favors upon me, O All-generous!
The narrator then added that Imam al-Sadiq (`a) then grasped his beard with his left hand, while saying this supplicatory prayer, and moved ceaselessly the forefinger of his right hand. He then added:
يَا ذَاَ ٱلْجَلالِ وَٱلإِكْرَامِ
Yaa Dhaljalaali Walikraam
O Lord of Majesty and Honor!
يَا ذَاَ ٱلنَّعْمَاءِ وَٱلْجُودِ
Yadhanni`Maai Waljood
O Lord of bliss and magnanimity!
يَا ذَاَ ٱلْمَنِّ وَٱلطَّوْلِ
Yadhal-Manni Wattawl
O Lord of favor and munificence!
حَرِّمْ شَيْبَتِي عَلَىٰ ٱلنَّارِ
Harrim Shaybatee `Alan-Naar.
(Please do) rescue my white-hair beard from Hellfire.
