Month of Ramadan

Dua Hajj

It has been narrated by Sayyid Ibn Tawus in ‘al-Iqbal’ that Imam al-sadiq (a.s) used to say this supplication after the Maghrib (sunset) Prayers in Ramadan. In ‘al-Kafi’, al-Kulayniy has narrated on the authority of Abu-Basir that Imam al-sadiq (a.s) used to say the following supplication in Ramadan:

 

اللّهُمَّ إنِّي بِكَ وَمِنْكَ أَطْلُبُ حَاجَتِي،

O Allah: From You and by You, I beseech for settling my need,

وَمَنْ طَلَبَ حَاجَةً إلَى النَّاسِ

If others beg people for settling their needs,

فَإنِّي لا أَطْلُبُ حَاجَتِي إلا مِنْكَ

I ask none except You for settling my need;

وَحْدَكَ لا شَرِيكَ لَكَ،

From You alone, since You have no partner with You

وَأَسْأَلُكَ بِفَضْلِكَ وَرِضْوَانِكَ

and I thus implore You in the name of Your favor and Your pleasure,

أَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَأَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ

to send blessings upon Muhammad and his Household,

وَأَنْ تَجْعَلَ لِي فِي عَامِي هذَا إلَى بَيْتِكَ الْحَرَامِ سَبِيلاً

And to choose for me a way to Your Holy House this year:

حِجَّةً مَبْرُورَةً مُتَقَبَّلَةً زَاكِيةً خَالِصَةً لَكَ

A pilgrimage that is admitted, accepted, pure, and sincerely for You

تَقَرُّ بِهَا عَيْنِي،

By which You delight me,

وَتَرْفَعُ بِهَا دَرَجَتِي،

And raise my rank with You

وَتَرْزُقَنِي أَنْ أَغُضَّ بَصَرِي،

And to confer upon me with the grace of making me cast my sight down (against what is illegal for me to look at)

وَأَنْ أَحْفَظَ فَرْجِي،

And making me act chastely

وَأَنْ أَكُفَّ بِهَا عَنْ جَمِيعِ مَحَارِمِكَ

And making me stop committing any deed that You have deemed unlawful

حَتَّى لا يَكُونَ شَيْءٌ آثَرَ عِنْدِي مِنْ طَاعَتِكَ وَخَشْيَتِكَ

So that nothing will be more preferred in my sight than the obedience to You and the fear of You

وَالْعَمَلِ بِمَا أَحْبَبْتَ،

And doing all that which You love,

وَالتَّرْكِ لِمَا كَرِهْتَ وَنَهَيْتَ عَنْهُ،

And avoiding all that which You have detested and warned against.

وَاجْعَلْ ذلِكَ فِي يُسْرٍ وَيَسَارٍ وَعَافِيَةٍ وَمَا أَنْعَمْتَ بِهِ عَلَيَّ،

And (please) make all that take place with easiness, lenience, and good health as well as the grave that You have bestowed upon me.

وَأَسْأَلُكَ أَنْ تَجْعَلَ وَفَاتِي قَتْلاً فِي سَبِيلِكَ

And I beseech You to cause me to die as martyr for Your sake,

تَحْتَ رَايَةِ نَبِيِّكَ مَعَ أَوْلِيَائِكَ،

Under the pennon of Your Prophet and in the line of Your intimate servants.

وَأَسْأَلُكَ أَنْ تَقْتُلَ بِي أَعْدَاءَكَ وَأَعْدَاءَ رَسُولِكَ،

And I ask You to make me the means of killing Your enemies and the enemies of Your Messenger.

وَأَسْأَلُكَ أَنْ تُكْرِمَنِي بِهَوَانِ مَنْ شِئْتَ مِنْ خَلْقِكَ

And I ask You to honor me through humiliating any one of Your created beings that You choose,

وَلا تُهِنِّي بِكَرَامَةِ أَحَدٍ مِنْ أَوْلِيَائِكَ.

And not to humiliate me through honoring any of Your intimate servants.

اللّهُمَّ اجْعَلْ لِي مَعَ الرَّسُولِ سَبِيلاً،

O Allah: find me a way with the Messenger.

حَسْبِيَ اللّهُ، مَا شَاءَ اللّهُ.

Allah is Sufficient unto me! Only that which Allah wants shall take place.
