allaahummaj a’lnaa min aqrabe man taqarraba elayka, wa awjahe man tawajjaha elayka wa anjahe man sa-alaka wa tazarrra-a’ elayka, allaahummaj a’lnaa mimman ka-annahu yaraaka elaa yawmil qeyaamatil lazee feehe yalqaaka, wa laa tomitnaa illaa a’laa rezaaka.
O God, make us nearer than all the seekers of proximity towards You and more respectable than all those, who turn to You and make me successful in achievement. O God, make us from those, who are as if they are seeing You till Judgment Day, in which we would meet You and do not make us die, except upon your satisfaction.
allaahumma salle a’laa mohammadin wa aale mohammadin, wagh fir lanaa maghferatan jazman hatman laa naqtarefo ba’dahaa zanban, wa laa naktasebo khatee-atan wa laa isman.
O Allah, bless Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad and forgive and give us salvation so absolute and complete after which we cannot commit any sin and do not commit any mistake and disobedience.
allaahumma salle a’laa mohammadin wa aale mohammadin, salaatan naameyatan daa-ematan zaakeyatan motatabe-a’tan motawaaselatan motaraadefatan, be-rahmateka yaa arhamar raahemeen.
O Allah, bless Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad, perfect blessing, which is continuously increasing and which is permanent, purified continuously, repeated and consistent.
It is narrated by Safwan that he said: Muhammad bin Halabi came to Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) and on Friday and said: Teach us the best ritual of today. Imam (a.s.) replied: O Muhammad, I don’t know of anyone, who was more proximate to Muhammad than Fatima and no other act more liked than the following, which His Eminence, taught to Fatima and it is as follows:
Perform the ritual bath (Ghusl) on Friday. Then pray four units of prayer in units of two each. In the first unit, after Surah Hamd recite Surah Tauheed fifty times; in the second unit, after Surah Hamd recite Surah Aadiyat fifty times; in the third unit, after Surah Hamd recite Surah Zilzal fifty times; in the fourth unit, after Surah Hamd recite Surah Nasr fifty times, which is the last Surah to be revealed.
After the prayer, recite the following supplication:
elaahee wa sayyedee man tahayya-a, aw ta-a’bba-a, aw a-a’dda awis ta-a’dda le-weffaadatin elaa makhlooqin rajaa-a rifdehi wa fawaa-edehi wa naa-elehi, wa fawaazelehi wa jawaaezehi.
My God and my chief, if anyone else had made preparation, bestowal of any creature, rewards, recompenses, perfection and profit to obtain and has prepared provisions for the journey.
fa-elayka yaa elaahee kaanat tahye-atee wa ta’be-atee, wa e-a’daadee was te’daadee rajaa-a rifdeka wa ma’roofeka, wa naa-eleka wa jawaa-ezeka, falaa tokhayyibnee min zaaleka.
Then, O God, all my preparations, support, capability is for your benefits, bestowal, rewards and justification. So, O master do not deprive me.
yaa man laa yakheebo a’layhe mas-alatus saa-ele, wa laa tanqosohu a’tiyyato naa-elin, fa-innee lam aateka be-a’malin saalehin qaddamtohu, wa laa shafaa-a’te makhlooqin rajawtohu.
O that god, in whose court the hopes of the petitioners are not shattered and the bestowal of no one is reduced. I have not come to You through some righteous deed, which I might have sent to You before and neither have I come forward in the hope of some creature.
ataqarrabo elayka be-shafaa-a’te mohammadin wa ahle baytehi salawaatoka a’layhe wa a’layhim ajma-e’ena (ataytoka) arjoo a’ a’zeema a’fwekal, lazee a’fawta behi a’lal khaate-eena i’nda o’koofehim a’lal mahaareme, falamyamna’ka toolo o’koofehim a’lal mahaareme an u’dta a’layhim bil-maghferate, wa anta sayyedil a’wwaado bin-na’maa-e, wa anal a’wwaado bil-khataa-e, as-aloka behaqqe mohammadin wa aalehit taahereena an taghfera lee zanbeyal a’zeema fa-innahu laa yaghferul a’zeema illal a’zeemo.
I have only come with the support of recommendation of Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad, peace be on them all. [I come to you] while I am hopeful of your great forgiveness through which You forgave all wrong doers their committing prohibited. But their continuous sins also were unable to restrain You from forgiveness. O You are that master of mine, who regularly bestows blessings upon me whereas I continuously commit errors. Now, I ask through the might of Muhammad and his purified progeny that You forgive my greatest sins, as the greatest of sins cannot be forgiven by anyone other than the great God.
