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.
Wa An Tqilni Asrati Wa-Tastor Ala Znoobi Wa Tagfirha Lee
That so you let go of what I have stumbled upon and that you cover my sins and you forgive them for me
وَتَقْضِيَ لي حَوائجي وَلا تُعَذِّبْني بِقَبيحٍ كانَ مِنّي،
Wa Taqdi Lee Hawaeiji Wa La Toazbni B Qabeehin Kaan Min-ni
and grant me my needs and do not torment me due to the filth of what was done by me,
فَاِنَّ عَفْوَكَ وَجُودَكَ يَسَعُني،
Fa Inna Afwaka Wa Joodak Yasaoni
For your mercy and generosity suffices me
اِنَّكَ على كُلِّ شَيء قَديرٌ.
Innaka Ala Kol Shai-in Qadeer
As you are capable to do all things
Imam Mahdi (ajtfs) related Invocation after Dhuhr Prayers
Among the most accentuated times for invoking the early
reappearance of our master, Imam-e-Asr (a.s.) is after Dhuhr prayers.
According to one tradition from Imam Sadeq (a.s.),
“One who says after the morning and noon prayers,
He will not die till he reaches to the Qaem (a.t.f.s.) of Ale Muhammad (s.a.w.a.).”
The Invocation “ يَا سَامِعَ كُلّ صَوْتٍ ” after Dhuhr prayers:'
Following in the footsteps of Imam Sadeq (a.s.), we should pray for
Imam al-Mahdi (a.t.f.s.), the saviour of humanity, who will reappear
in the last era as promised by the Messenger of Islam (s.a.w.a.) to
his nation through authentic traditions. Abbaad Ibn Muhammad al-
Madaaeni says, “I went to meet Imam Sadeq (a.s.) in Madina. After
finishing his zohr prayers, he (a.s.) raised his head towards the sky and said,
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.
It was stated in "Falaahi Ssa'il" among the important supplication to be observed after (Asr) afternoon prayer by imitating our master Musa ibn Ja'afar Al-Kazim (peace be upon him) in his dedicated supplication to our master Al-Mahdi (peace and blessing of Allah be on his grand father Muhammad and same to him) as it was narrated by Yahya bn Al-Fadl Naufali, he said: I entered to Abu Al-Hasan, Musa bn Ja'afar after (Asr) afternoon prayer in Baghdad, thus I met him raising his hand to the Heaven and I heard him reciting the following:
I said to him, whom did you prayed for? He said: to Al-Mahdi of the Prophet's household (peace be on them).
He continued saying: may my father be sacrifice for him, his eyebrow are very close, his legs are very energetic, his shoulder is wide, brown in colour and close to be yellowish, may my father be sacrifice for him, his night shall guard the stars by his bowing down and prostration to Allah, may my father be sacrifice for him, he who the blames of those that blame shall not affect before Allah, he is the luminous lamp, may my father be sacrifice for him, he shall rise with the command of Allah.
I said to him, when will he come out? He said: when you saw armies from the city of Anbar in Iraq at the beach of Furat, sirah and Dajlah, and the arch of Kufah is destroy, and burning of some houses in Kufah, when you see all this, verily Allah will act according to His wish, no one can subdue the commandment of Allah and no one can review His Judgement.
10) Invocation of Imam Kazim (a.s.) after Asr prayers for the Reappearance of Imam-e-Zamaan (a.t.f.s.)
Among the times that have been emphasized a lot, is after the Asr
prayers. Its proof is the quotation found in the book, Falaah al-
Saael, by Sayed Ali Ibn Taawoos (a.r.). He writes, “Among the
important duties after the Asr prayers is to follow Imam Musa al-
Kazim (a.s.) in his invocation for our master, Hazrat Mahdi (a.t.f.s.),
as has been narrated by Muhammad Ibn Bushair al-Azdi, from
Ahmad Ibn Umar al-Katib, from al-Hasan Ibn Muhammad Ibn
Jamhoor al-Ammi, from his father Muhammad Ibn Jamhoor, from
Yahya Ibn Fadhl al-Naufeli, who said, “I went to meet Abul Hasan
Musa Ibn Ja’far (a.s.) at Baghdad. When he finished his Asr
prayers, he raised his hands towards the heavens and I heard him
