Month of Ramadan

Dua for EID Day - Night

The first night of Shawwal is one of the blessed nights. Many narrations have referred to the great merits and rewards of those who spend this night, as a whole, with acts of worship. Moreover, some narrations have mentioned that this night is not less blessed than the Qadr Night. The devotional acts at this night are as follows:

Take a ghusl at sunset.
It is recommended to spend the whole night with offering prayers, supplicating, imploring for forgiveness, and staying at mosques.

Recite the following “takbeerat” at the end of Maghrib / Ishaa /Fajr & also on “E'ed Prayers
اللَّهُ اكْبَرُ ٱللَّهُ اكْبَرُ
allahu akbar allahu akbar
Allah is Great. Allah is Great.
لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ
la ilaha illa allahu
There is no god save Allah.
وَٱللَّهُ اكْبَر ُاللَّهُ اكْبَرُ
wallahu akbar allahu akbar
And Allah is Great.Allah is Great.
وَلِلَّهِ ٱلْحَمْدُ
wa lillahi alhamd
All praise be to Allah.
الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ عَلَىٰ مَا هَدَانَا
alhamdu lillahi `ala ma hadana
All praise be to Allah for He has shown us the Right Path.
وَلَهُ ٱلشُّكْرُ عَلَىٰ مَا اوْلانَا
wa lahu alshshukru `ala ma awlana
All thanks be to Him for that which He has conferred upon us.

After Maghrib prayers and its “Naafilah” (voluntary prayers) raise your hands towards the sky and say:
ذَا ٱلْمَنِّ وَٱلطَّوْلِ
ya dha almanni walttawli
O Lord of favor and bounty!
ذَا ٱلْجُودِ
ya dha aljudi
O Lord of magnanimity!
مُصْطَفِيَ مُحَمَّدٍ وَنَاصِرَهُ
ya mustafiya muhammadin wa nasirahu
O He Who has chosen Muhammad and granted him victory!
صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
salli `ala muhammadin wa ali muhammadin
(Please) send blessings to Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad
وَٱغْفِرْ لِي كُلَّ ذَنْبٍ احْصَيْتَهُ
waghfir li kulla dhanbin ahsaytahu
and forgive me all the sins that You have known (from me)
وَهُوَ عِنْدَكَ فِي كِتَابٍ مُبِينٍ
wa huwa `indaka fi kitabin mubinin
and they are written with you in a manifest record.
According to the narration mentioned by Shaykh al-Tusi, it is recommended to prostrate after the Maghrib and `Isha' Prayers and then say the following supplication:
ذَا الْحَوْلِ
ya dhalhawli
O the Lord of power;
ذَا الطّوْلِ
ya dhalttawli
O the Lord of bounty;
مُصْطَفِياً مُحَمّداً وَنَاصِرَهُ
ya mustafiyan muhammadan wa nasirahu
O He Who has chosen Muhammad and granted him victory;
صَلّ عَلَى مُحَمّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمّدٍ
salli `ala muhammadin wa ali muhammadin
(please do) bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad
وَاغْفِرْ لِي كُلّ ذَنْبٍ أَذْنَبْتُهُ
waghfir li kulla dhanbin adhnabtuhu
and forgive me every sin that I have committed
وَنَسِيتُهُ أَنَا وَهُوَ عِنْدَكَ فِي كِتَابٍ مُبِينٍ
wa nasituhu ana wa huwa `indaka fi kitabin mubinin
and forgotten, but it is recorded with You in a Manifest Record.
Then prostrate and say 100 times in Sajdah:
أَتُوبُ إِلَى اللّهِ
ATOBU ILLALLAAH
I turn repentant unto Allah
Then invoke Allah to fulfill your legitimate desires.

YAA D’AL MANNI WAT’ T’AWL YAA MUS’T’AFIYA MUH’AMMADIN S’ALLALLAAHU A’LAYHI WA AALIHEE S’ALLI A’LAA MU’AMMADIN WA AALIHEE
يَا ذَا ٱلْمَنِّ وَٱلْجُودِ يَا ذَا ٱلْمَنِّ وَٱلطَّوْلِ يَا مُصْطَفِيَ مُحَمَّد صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ

Alhamdu lillah we fasted, prayed, recited the Holy Qur’an, supplicated and performed many more good deeds during the Holy month of Ramadhan, recognizing its importance. Now it’s time to receive full compensation from the Divine banquet by also considering the greatness of the Night of Eid and trying to perform some of the recommended deeds. May the Almighty increase our tawfiqaat in continuing the good practices we developed during the Holy month!

Holy Prophet (s): Allah (swt) pours down good (al-khyayr) in abundance on 4 nights: Night of [Eid) al-Adhaa, [Eid] al-Fitr, . . (Muhammad al-Ray Shahri, Shahrullah fil-kitaab wal-sunnah, p. 495, H. 767 taken from Kanzul ‘ummal, 12, 322, H. 35215)

Imam Ali (a): If you can preserve [the importance] of Nights of Fitr and Nahr . . . then do so; say a lot of supplications, prayers and recitation of the Qur’an. (Ibid, p. 496, H. 769 taken from Misbah al-tahajjud, p 852 from Harith b. ‘Abdullah)

Imam al-Sadiq (a): The Night of Fitr is the night of receiving in full the reward of the laborer (Ibid, H. 770 from al-Hidayah, p. 210)

In al-Fiqh attributed to Imam al-Ridha (a): Put efforts in spending the Night of Fitr in supplications and keeping awake. (Ibid, H. 771 from Fiqh al-Ridha p. 206)

It is mustahab to perform ghusl on the Night of Eid al-Fitr which includes the physical bath of the body and the [spiritual] bath of purifying hearts from sins. If it is known that it indeed is the Night of the Eid then the ghusl is performed before sunset; and it has also been narrated that the ghusl should be taken at the end of the Night of Eid. (Ibid. H. 772 from al-Iqbaal1, 457)

Imam al-Sadiq (a): He who visits the grave of al-Husayn (a) on three nights, Allah forgives his past and future sins. “Which are these nights,” asked ‘Abdur Rahman b. Hajjaj. The Imam said, “the Night of Fitr, Night of al-adhaa and Night of the Middle of Sha‘baan.” (Ibid. H. 781 from Tahdhib al-ahkam 6, 49, 112). [Translator’s comments: if we recite the ziyaarah al-Husayn from far & we will inshaa Allah be rewarded amply for it.]

Holy Prophet (s): He who keeps awake on the Night of Eid, his heart will not die on the day when the hearts [of others] will die. (Ibid. H. 783 from Tahdhib al-ahkam 6, 51, 119).

Holy Prophet (s): He who keeps awake on the Nights of Two Eids (i.e. al-Fitr & al-Adhaa) expecting reward from Allah (muhtasiban lillah), his heart would not die on the day when hearts [of others] die (Ibid. H. 784 taken from Sunan ibn Maajah 1, 567, 1782).
