Shaykh al-Tusi (a.r.)has also narrated that a document signed by Imam al-Mahdi (peace be upon him) was received by by Shaikh Abu al-Qasim Husain Ibn Rawh al-Nawbakhti (r.a.), Imam al-Mahdi’(peace be upon him)s representative, comprising that the following prayer is recommended to be said in the month of Rajab:
In this supplication, we swear upon Allah, Mighty and Glorified be He, for the sake of the two blessed births that took place in this month, Imam al-Jawaad (peace be upon him) and Imam al-Haadi (peace be upon him). We also seek forgiveness and pardon from Him and that He metes out unto us a favourable end.



اَللَّهُمَّ إنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ بِٱلْمَوْلُودَيْنِ فِي رَجَبٍ
allahumma inni as'aluka bilmawludayni fi rajabin
O Allah, I beseech You in the name of those who were born in Rajab,

I beseech You with the entreaty of him
قَدْ أَوْبَقَتْهُ ذُنُوبُهُ
qad awbaqat-hu dhunubuhu
whom is enchained by his sins
وَأَوْثَقَتْهُ عُيُوبُهُ
wa awthaqat-hu `uyubuhu
and is bound by his defects;
فَطَالَ عَلَىٰ ٱلْخَطَايَا دُؤُوبُهُ
fatala `ala alkhataya du'ubuhu
therefore, he devoted himself to offenses,
وَمِنَ ٱلرَّزَايَا خُطُوبُهُ

and disasters have attacked him heavily.
يَسْأَلُكَ ٱلتَّوْبَةَ

Certainly, You, O my Master, the greatest of all hopes and desires he has.

أَنْ تَتَغَمَّدَنِي فِي هٰذَا ٱلشَّهْرِ بِرَحْمَةٍ مِنْكَ وَاسِعَةٍ
an tataghammadani fi hadha alshshahri birahmatin minka wasi`atin
to encompass me, in this month, with vast mercy of You,
وَنِعْمَةٍ وَازِعَةٍ
wa ni`matin wazi`atin
abundant favors,
وَنَفْسٍ بِمَا رَزَقْتَهَا قَانِعَةٍ
wa nafsin bima razaqtaha qani`atin
and satisfaction with what You have decided for me
إِلَىٰ نُزُولِ ٱلْحَافِرَةِ

وَمَحَلِّ ٱلآخِرَةِ
wa mahalli al-akhirati
which is my abode to the Hereafter
وَمَا هِيَ إِلَيْهِ صَائِرَةٌ
wa ma hiya ilayhi sa'iratun
and the Final Fate.

It is recommended to offer a sixty-unit prayer in Rajab. Each night, it is recommended to offer two units of this prayer in the first unit of which Surah al-Fatihah is recited once, Surah al-Kafirun (No. 109) repeated three times, and Surah al-Tawhid recited one time. After the accomplishment of the two prayer units, it is recommended to raise the hands towards the sky and say the following:

لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ ٱللَّهُ
la ilaha illa allahu
There is no god save Allah,
وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ
wahdahu la sharika lahu
the One and Only Who has no partner.
لَهُ ٱلْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ ٱلْحَمْدُ
lahu almulku wa lahu alhamdu
To Him is the kingdom and to Him is all praise.
يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ
yuhyi wa yumitu
He restores to live and cause to die
وَهُوَ حَيٌّ لاَ يَمُوتُ
wa huwa hayyun la yamutu
and He is Ever-living and He never dies.
بِيَدِهِ ٱلْخَيْرُ
biyadihi alkhayru
In His Hands is all goodness,
وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
wa huwa `ala kulli shay'in qadirun
He has power over all things,
وَإِلَيْهِ ٱلْمَصِيرُ
wa ilayhi almasiru
and to Him is the return of all things.
وَلاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِٱللَّهِ ٱلْعَلِيِّ ٱلْعَظِيمِ
wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahi al`aliyyi al`azimi
There is neither might nor strength save with Allah, the Most High, the All-great.
اَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ ٱلنَّبِيِّ ٱلْأُمِّيِّ وَآلِهِ
allahumma salli `ala muhammadin alnnabiyyi al-ummiyyi wa alihi
O Allah, (please do) bless Muhammad, the Ummi Prophet, and his Household.
It is also recommended to pass one’s hand over the face while reciting the last sentence of this supplication.
The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him and his family) is reported to have said that if one offers this prayer and recites this supplication, Almighty Allah will respond to his needs and will award him the reward of sixth times of Hajj and `Umrah.
