One and Only Lord and having no associate with Him.

To him is the kingdom and to Him is all praise.

يُحيِي وَيُميتُ

yu¦y¢ wa yum¢tu

He gives life and causes to die

وَهُوَ حَيٌّ لاَ يَمُوتُ

wa huwa ¦ayyun l¡ yam£tu

while He is Ever-living and He never dies.

بِيَدِهِ ٱلْخَيْرُ

biyadih¢ alkhayru

In His hand is the good

وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَديرٌ

wa huwa `al¡ kulli shay'in qad¢r

and He has power over all things.

Then, repeat the invocation of blessings upon the Holy Prophet and his Household ten times:

اَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

all¡humma ¥alli `al¡ mu¦ammadin wa ¡li mu¦ammadin

Ninth: Mu¦ammad ibn Fu¤ayl has reported that he wrote a letter to Imam Mu¦ammad al-Taq¢ (al-Jaw¡d) (`a) asking him to teach him a  prayer. The Imam’s answer came: In mornings and evening, you may say the following statement:

اللَّهُ ٱللَّهُ ٱللَّهُ رَبِّيَ

all¡hu all¡hu all¡hu rabb¢

Allah, Allah, Allah is my lord,

ٱلرَّحْمٰنُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ

the All-beneficent and All-merciful.

لاَ اشْرِكُ بِهِ شَيْئاً

ushriku bih¢ shay'an

I do not admit any one as partner of Him.

 You may then submit your requests.

Tenth: Imam al-¯¡diq (`a) is reported to have said to D¡w£d al-Raqq¢: Do not miss repeating the following  prayer three times in mornings and three times in evenings:

اَللَّهُمَّ ٱجْعَلْنِي فِي دِرْعِكَ ٱلْحَصِينَةِ

all¡humma ij`aln¢ f¢ dir`ika al¦a¥¢nati

O Allah, (please) include me with Your invulnerable shield

ٱلَّتِي تَجْعَلُ فِيهَا مَنْ تُرِيدُ

allat¢ taj`alu f¢h¡ man tur¢du

with which You include whomever You want.

 The Imam (`a) added: My father (`a) has said, “This is one of the divinely hoarded  prayers.”

It is narrated that the Prophet saws used to recite three hundred and sixty times every dawn and dusk the following

Alhamdu lillahi rabbilaalimeen kateeran ala kulle haalin

with which You include whomever You want.

He (a.s.) said that there are 360 veins in the human body. Of them 180 are mobile and the other 180 are static. If, even one mobile vein becomes static, or any of the static veins becomes mobile, then the person doesn’t get the sleep and remains restless the whole night. He should therefore regularly recite the invocation mentioned above.

Ameer al Momineen has said that anyone who recited three times the following words every morning and evening, then Allah will certainly enter him into the Heaven:

Razaito billahi rabban wa bilislame deenan wa Muhammadin sal allaho alaihi wa aalehi nabian wa bil qurane balaghan wa be aliyin imaman wa bil ausiayo min wuldehe aayimatan

Imam Jafar e Sadiq (a.s.) has said that one who recites the following words 25 times every day, then Allah will write one virtue in the names of all the momins from Adam (a.s.) till the Day of Reckoning and to that individual he will Reward equal to that of all the momins:

Allahumma aghfiru lilmomineena wal mominaate wal muslimeena wal muslimaate

 

Recite ten times the Quranic Surah (i.e. Chapter) known as al-Ikhlas:

Recite ten times“All Praise and Glory be to Allah, the Supreme And there is no power or power-acquiring Except through God, the High, and the Mighty”.

Recite once:“In the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate God, guide me through Your Grace; Supplement my meager means with abundance of your generosity. Spread your Mercy All over me. Send down over me your Blessing!” 

Recite ten times:“Glory and Praise be to Allah For there is no God except Allah And Allah is Supreme”. 

Recite ten times:“I bear witness that there is no God except Allah. He is alone having no equals or partners. Alone everlasting Who does not need to take a son or a spouse”

 Recite once:“In the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate. I give, hereby, myself And all that God has give me In the custody of Allah, The one, The Everlasting, Who begets not. Nor has He been begotten. Nor there is one equal to Him! And I, hereby, take refuge with myself And that God has given me With the Lord of Day break From the evil of what He has created And from the evil of darkness when it gathers. And from the evil of those women who blow on knots And from the evil of envious when he envies. And I take refuge with myself and all that God has given me With the Lord of men, The King of men, the Sustainer of men From the evil or the slinking whisperer Who whispers in the breasts of men Of Jin and Men”.

 Recite once:There is no power or strength save in God The most High, the Most Supreme. I rely on the Living Who will not Taste, the Taste of death I laud and glorify the One Who has not take a spouse Or a son! Nor there was a partner to share sovereignty nor a friend To supplement a possible need. So glorify Him In the greatest way possible. 

Recite three times:“I seek forgiveness from the Lord (testifying) There is no God other than Him The Living and the Everlasting Of Majesty and Splendour And I turn to Him In Repentence!” 

Then recite:“O Lord I ask you In the name of Muhammad and his line of Progeny To have Mercy on Muhammad and his posterity. And (through them) grant me (also) The light in my eyes, the true understanding of my faith The (Divine) Certainty in my heart The sincerity in my actions and peace in my mind And spaciousness in the means of my living And gratitude unto You As long as you decide to keep me alive”. 

Then recite:“There is no God except Allah, the One, without any partner. To Him belongs the Kingdom and to Him is due all Praise. He gives life and death. In His hand is the good, and He has power over all things”.

“I seek refuge in Allah, the Hearing, the Knowing, from the evil suggestions of Shaitans and seek refuge in Allah from their presence. Surely Allah -- He is the Hearing, the Knowing”.

 Then recite:“O Allah! Who transforms hearts and eyes, may my heart steadfast to Thy religion. And make not my heart to deviate after Thou hast guided me a right and grant me Thy mercy. Surely Thou art All – bestower, and by Thy mercy save me from the fire. Oh Allah! Extend the span of my life and increase my subsistence and unfold Thy Knowledge. If there is any misfortune for me in the guarded tablets make it fortunate for me, for surely thou effaces what Thou pleases and inscribes (what Thou pleases) and art heart of guarded tablet”. 


Supplications At Sunrise and Sunset  PDF

Too many are the supplications that have been reported from the Holy Prophet and the Holy Imams, peace be upon them, to be said at sunrise and sunset. Besides, verses from the Holy Qur'¡n and traditions of the Infallibles, peace be upon them, have urged on and awakened desires for the persistence on saying such supplications at these two times of the day. However, let us mention a few number of these authenticated supplications:

First: Master °ad¢thists have narrated, through authenticated chain of authority (sanad), that Imam Ja`far al-¯¡diq (`a) said: It is incumbent upon each and every Muslim to repeat the following  prayer ten times before sunrise and ten times before sunset:Mp3

لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ ٱللَّهُ

il¡ha ill¡ all¡hu

There is no god save Allah,

وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَريكَ لَهُ

wa¦dah£ l¡ shar¢ka lah£

alone without having any partner.

لَهُ ٱلْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ ٱلْحَمْدُ

lah£ almulku wa lah£ al¦amdu

To him is the kingdom and to Him is all praise.

يُحيِي وَيُميتُ وَيُميتُ وَيُحْيِي

yu¦y¢ wa yum¢tu wa yum¢tu wa yu¦y¢

He gives life and causes to die and causes to die and gives life

وَهُوَ حَيٌّ لاَ يَمُوتُ

wa huwa ¦ayyun l¡ yam£tu

while He is ever-living and never dies.

بِيَدِهِ ٱلْخَيْرُ

biyadih¢ alkhayru

In His hand is the good

وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَديرٌ

wa huwa `al¡ kulli shay'in qad¢run

and He has power over all things.

According to some narrations, this supplication should be made up if it is missed because it is obligatory.

 

Second: Through trustworthy chains of authority too, Imam al-¯¡diq (`a) is reported to have said: Before sunrise and sunset, repeat ten times the following  prayer:Mp3

اعُوذُ بِٱللَّهِ ٱلسَّمِيعِ ٱلْعَلِيمِ

a`£dhu bill¡hi alssam¢`i al`al¢mi

I seek the protection of Allah, the All-hearing and All-knowing,

مِنْ هَمَزَاتِ ٱلشَّيَاطينِ

min hamaz¡ti alshshay¡§¢ni

against the evil suggestions of the devils

وَ اعُوذُ بَٱللَّهِ انْ يَحْضُرُونِ

wa a`£dhu bill¡hi an ya¦¤ur£ni

and I seek Allah’s protection lest they be present with me.

إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ هُوَ ٱلسَّميعُ ٱلْعَليمُ

inna all¡ha huwa alssam¢`u al`al¢mu

Verily, Allah is the All-hearing, the All-knowing.

 

Third: Imam al-¯¡diq (`a) is also reported to have said: Nothing should divert you from saying the following  prayer three times each morning and evening:Mp3

اَللَّهُمَّ مُقَلِّبَ ٱلْقُلُوبِ وَٱلابْصَارِ

all¡humma muqallIba alqul£bi wal-ab¥¡ri

O Allah Who causes the changes of hearts and sights,

ثَبِّتْ قَلْبِي عَلَىٰ دِينِكَ

(please) make firm my heart on the course of Your religion,

وَلاَ تُزِغْ قَلْبِي بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَيْتَنِي

wa l¡ tuzigh qalb¢ ba`da idh hadaytan¢

cause not my heart to stray off after You have guided me,

وَهْبْ لِي مِنْ لَدُنْكَ رَحْمَةً

wa hab l¢ min ladunka ra¦matan

and bestow upon me mercy from Your Presence.

إِنَّكَ اَنْتَ ٱلْوهَّابُ

innaka anta alwahh¡bu

Surely, You are the All-bestower.

وَاَجِرْنِي مِنَ ٱلنَّارِ بِرَحْمَتِكَ

wa ajirn¢ mina alnn¡ri bira¦matika

And save me from Hellfire out of Your mercy.

اَللَّهُمَّ ٱمْدُدْ لِي فِي عُمُرِي

all¡humma imdud l¢ f¢ `umur¢

O Allah, (please) extend my lifetime,

وَاَوْسِعْ عَلَيَّ فِي رِزْقِي

wa awsi` `alayya f¢ rizq¢

expand my sustenance,

وَٱنْشُرْ عَلَيَّ رَحْمَتَكَ

wanshur `alayya ra¦mataka

cover me with Your mercy,

وَإِنْ كُنْتُ عِنْدَكَ فِي امِّ ٱلْكِتَابِ شَقِيّاً

wa in kuntu `indaka f¢ ummi alkit¡bi shaqiyyan

and if I am listed in the Mother of the Book with the unhappy ones,

فَٱجَعْلْنِي سَعِيداً

faj`aln¢ sa`¢dan

please include me with the happy ones,

فَإنَّكَ تَمْحُو مَا تَشَاءُ وَتُثْبِتُ

fa'innaka tam¦£ m¡ tash¡'u wa tuthbitu

for, surely, You efface what You will, and establish what You will,

وَعِنْدَكَ امُّ ٱلْكِتَابِ

wa `indaka ummu alkit¡bi

and with You is the Mother of the Book.

 

Fourth: Imam al-¯¡diq (`a) is also reported to have instructed to say the following  prayer each morning and evening:Mp3

اَلْحَمدُ لِلَّهِ ٱلَّذِي يَفْعَلُ مَا يَشَاءُ

All praise be to Allah Who does whatever He wills

وَلاَ يَفْعَلُ مَا يَشَاءُ غَيْرُهُ

wa l¡ yaf`alu m¡ yash¡'u ghayruh£

and none else can ever do whatever one wills.

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ كَمَا يُحِبُّ ٱللَّهُ انْ يُحْمَدَ

al¦amdu lill¡hi kam¡ yu¦ibbu all¡hu an yu¦mada

All praise be to Allah as much as Allah desires to be praised.

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ كَمَا هُوَ اهْلُهُ

al¦amdu lill¡hi kam¡ huwa ahluh£

All praise be to Allah as much as He is worthy of praising.

اَللَّهُمَّ ادْخِلْنِي فِي كُلِّ خَيْرٍ ادْخَلْتَ فيهِ مُحَمَّداً وَآلَ مُحَمَّدٍ

all¡humma adkhiln¢ f¢ kulli khayrin adkhalta f¢hi mu¦ammadan wa ¡la mu¦ammadin

O Allah, include me with each (item of) goodness with which You have included Mu¦ammad and the Household of Mu¦ammad,

وَ اخْرِجْنِي مِنْ كُلِّ شَرٍّ اخْرَجْتَ مِنْهُ مُحَمَّداً وَآلَ مُحَمَّدٍ

wa akhrijn¢ min kulli sharrin akhrajta minhu ma¦ammdan wa ¡la mu¦ammadin

and take me out of each (item of) evil from which You have taken out Mu¦ammad and the Household of Mu¦ammad.

صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

¥all¡ all¡hu `al¡ mu¦ammadin wa ¡li mu¦ammadin

May Allah bless Mu¦ammad and the Household of Mu¦ammad.

 

Fifth: Repeat the following litany ten times each morning and evening:

It is highly advisable to engage yourself in  glorification of Almighty Allah and implorations for His forgiveness, because this hour is as important  as the pre-sunrise hour, as Almighty Allah has said in the Holy Quran:

وَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ قَبْلَ طُلُوعِ ٱلشَّمْسِ وَقَبْلَ ٱلْغُرُوبِ.

And sing the praise of your Lord before the rising of the sun and before the setting.

 Imam al-Sadiq (`a) is reported to have said, “When the color of the sun changes (i.e. the sun is about to set), you must remember Allah the Almighty and Majestic. If you are at that hour with one who preoccupies you from this, you must leave him and supplicate. Mp3   Image

امْسَىٰ ظُلْمِي مُسْتَجِيراً بِعَفْوِكَ

ams¡ ¨ulm¢ mustaj¢ran bi`afwika

In this evening, my wrongdoing is taking shelter in Your pardon,

وَامْسَتْ ذُنُوبِي مُسْتَجِيرَةً بِمَغْفِرَتِكَ

wa amsat dhun£b¢ mustaj¢ratan bimaghfiratika

my sins are taking shelter in Your forgiveness,

وَامْسىٰ خَوْفِي مُسْتَجِيراً بِامَانِكَ

wa ams¡ khawf¢ mustaj¢ran bi'am¡nika

my fear is taking shelter in Your security,

وَامْسَىٰ ذُلِّي مُسْتَجِيراً بِعِزِّكَ

wa ams¡ dhull¢ mustaj¢ran bi`izzika

my humility is taking shelter in Your dignity,

وَامْسَىٰ فَقْرِي مُسْتَجِيراً بِغِنَاكَ

wa ams¡ faqr¢ mustaj¢ran bighin¡ka

my poverty is taking shelter in Your richness,

وَامْسَىٰ وَجْهِيَ ٱلْبَالِي مُسْتَجِيراً بِوَجْهِكَ ٱلدَّائِمِ ٱلْبَاقِي

wa ams¡ wajhiya alb¡l¢ mustaj¢ran biwajhika aldd¡'imi alb¡q¢

and my mortal face is taking shelter in Your Face, the Undying and Perpetual.

اللَّهُمَّ الْبِسْنِي عَافِيَتَكَ

all¡humma albisn¢ `¡fiyataka

O Allah, (please) dress me with Your wellbeing,

وَغَشِّنِي بِرَحْمَتِكَ

wa ghashshin¢ bira¦matika

cover me with Your mercy,

وَجَلِّلْنِي كَرَامَتَكَ

wa jalliln¢ kar¡mataka

overshadow me with Your honoring,

وَقِنِي شَرَّ خَلْقِكَ مِنَ ٱلْجِنِّ وَٱلإِنْسِ

wa qin¢ sharra khalqika min aljinni wal-insi

and protect me against the evils of Your creatures—jinn and men.

يَا اللَّهُ يَا رَحْمٰنُ يَا رَحِيمُ

 all¡hu y¡ ra¦m¡nu y¡ ra¦¢mu

O Allah! O All-beneficent! O All-merciful!

Another supplication to be said at sunset is the following:

يَا مَنْ خَتَمَ ٱلنُّبُوَّةَ بِمُحَمَّدٍ

y¡ man khatama alnnubuwwata bimu¦ammadin

O He Who has sealed the Prophethood with Muhammad,

صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ

¥all¡ all¡hu `alayhi wa ¡lih¢

Allah may bless him and his Household,

إِخْتِمْ لِي فِي يَوْمِي هٰذَا بِخَيْرٍ

ikhtim l¢ f¢ yawm¢ h¡dh¡ bikhayrin

(please) seal with goodness this day of mine,

وَشَهْرِي بِخَيْرٍ

wa shahr¢ bikhayrin

this month of mine,

وَسَنَتِي بِخَيْرٍ

wa sanat¢ bikhayrin

this year of mine,

وَعُمْرِي بِخَيْرٍ

wa `umr¢ bikhayrin

and my entire lifetime.

You may then put your hand on the head and pass it over your face. You may then hold your beard and say the following   :Mp3

احَطْتُ عَلَىٰ نَفْسِي وَاهْلِي

a¦a§tu `al¡ nafs¢ wa ahl¢

I include myself, my family,

وَمَالِي وَوَلَدِي

wa m¡l¢ wa walad¢

my property, and my sons,

مِنْ غَائِبٍ وَشَاهِدٍ

min gh¡'ibin wa sh¡hidin

both the absent and the present

بِٱللَّهِ ٱلَّذِي لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاََّ هُوَ

bill¡hi alladh¢ l¡ il¡ha ill¡ huwa

with Allah save Whom there is no god,

عَالِمُ ٱلْغَيْبِ وَٱلشَّهَادَةِ

`¡limu alghaybi walshshah¡dati

the Knower of the unseen and the seen,

ٱلرَّحْمٰنُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ

alrra¦m¡nu alrra¦¢mu

the All-beneficent, the All-merciful,

ٱلْحَيُّ ٱلْقَيُّومُ

al¦ayyu alqayy£mu

the Ever-living, the Self-subsisting.

لاَ تَاخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلاَ نَوْمٌ

l¡ ta'khudhuh£ sinatun wa l¡ nawmun

Slumber does not overtake Him nor sleep.

لَهُ مَا فِي ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي ٱلارْضِ

lah£ m¡ f¢ alssam¡w¡ti wa m¡ f¢ al-ar¤i

Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is His.

مَنْ ذَا ٱلَّذِي يَشْفَعُ عِنْدَهُ إِلاَّ بِإِذْنِهِ

man dh¡ alladh¢ yashfa`u `indah£ ill¡ bi'idhnih¢

Who is he that can intercede with Him but by His permission?

يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ ايْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ

ya`lamu m¡ bayna ayd¢him wa m¡ khalfahum

He knows what is before them and what is behind them,

وَلا يُحِيطُونَ بِشَيْءٍ مِنْ عِلْمِهِ إِلاَّ بِمَا شَاءَ

wa l¡ yu¦¢§£na bishay'in min `ilmihi ill¡ bim¡ sh¡'a

and they cannot comprehend anything out of His knowledge except what He pleases.

وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ وَٱلارْضَ

wasi`a kursiyyuh£ alssam¡w¡ti wa al-ar¤a

His knowledge extends over the heavens and the earth,

وَلاَ يَئُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا

wa l¡ ya'£duh£ ¦if¨uhum¡

and the preservation of them both tires Him not,

وَهُوَ ٱلْعَلِيُّ ٱلْعَظِيمُ

wa huwa al`aliyyu al`a¨¢mu

and He is the Most High, the Great.
