Subsequent to the Noon (Dhuhr) Prayer, say the following supplicatory prayer, as is quoted from Misbah al-Mutahajjid:
This supplication has been reported from Imam Hasan Askari, who reported from his father, who reported from his forefathers, who reported from Imam Aba-Abdullah, who reported from Imam Ali, who reported from the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon them all)
لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ ٱللَّهُ ٱلْعَظِيمُ ٱلْحَلِيمُ
la ilaha illa allahu al`azimu alhalimu
There is no god save Allah, the All-great and Most Forbearing.
Allahuma Inni Ataqqarabu Elaika B-Jodik Wa-Karamik,
Wa Ataqarabu Elaika B Mohammed Abdik Wa-Rasoolik,
Wa Ataqarabu Elaika B Malaikatik Al Moqarabeen Wa Anbiyaik Wa Rosolik,
An Tosali Ala Mohammed Abdik Wa Rasoolik Wa Ala Aali Mohammed, Wa An Tqilni Asrati Wa-Tastor Ala Znoobi Wa Tagfirha Lee
Wa Taqdi Lee Hawaeiji Wa La Toazbni B Qabeehin Kaan Min-ni
Fa Inna Afwaka Wa Joodak Yasaoni, Innaka Ala Kol Shai-in Qadeer
O Allah, I seek closeness towards you through your goodness and generosity, and I closeness towards you through Muhammad; your servant and messenger, and I seek closeness towards you through your closest most dearest angles, prophets and apostles;
That to send your blessings onto Muhammed your servant and messenger and onto Muhammad’s progeny, That so you let go of what I have stumbled upon and that you cover my sins and you forgive them for me and grant me my needs and do not torment me due to the filth of what was done by me, For your mercy and generosity suffices me, As you are capable to all that are things.
allahumma inni as'aluka alyusra ba`da al`usri
O Allah, I surely beseech You for easiness after difficulty,
وَٱلْفَرَجَ بَعْدَ ٱلْكَرْبِ
walfaraja ba`da alkarbi
relief after misfortune,
وَٱلرَّخَاءَ بَعْدَ ٱلشِّدَّةِ
walrrakha'a ba`da alshshiddati
and comfort after hardship.
اَللَّهُمَّ مَا بِنَا مِنْ نِعْمَةٍ فَمِنْكَ
allahumma ma bina min ni`matin faminka
O Allah, You are certainly the source of each and every favor that covers us.
لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ
la ilaha illa anta
There is no god save You.
أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَ أَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ
astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayka
I pray Your forgiveness and repent before You.
Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (peace be upon him) is reported as saying: Anyone who implores Almighty Allah’s forgiveness (i.e. astaghfirullaha) seventy times after the `Asr Prayer will have seven hundred of his sins forgiven.
Imam Muhammad al-Taqi (al-Jawad) (peace be upon him) is also reported as saying: Anyone who recites Surah al-Qadr (No. 97) ten times after the `Asr Prayer will be granted the reward of the deeds of all creatures on that day.
It is also recommended to say Dua 'Asharaat every morning and evening. Yet, the best time for this supplication is the time after the `Asr Prayers on Fridays.
