Du`¡' from Imam M£s¡ al-K¡¨im(as)

Shaykh al-Kaf`am¢, in al-Balad al-Am¢n, has mentioned a  prayer that is reported from Imam al-K¡¨im (`a), commenting that it of great importance and it achieves swiftness in response:

all¡humma inn¢ a§a`tuka f¢ a¦abbi al-ashy¡'i ilayka

O Allah, I have certainly obeyed You in the most beloved thing to You,

وَهُوَ ٱلتَّوْحِيدُ

which is Your Oneness.

وَلَمْ عْصِكَ فِي بْغَضِ ٱلشْيَاءِ إِلَيْكَ

I have not disobeyed you in the most hateful thing to You,

which is atheism.

Health Dua for the sake of Imam Kazim (a.s.)

Ayatullah Behjat believes that du’a has a very great status and insists that du’a governs the outcome of every stage of our lives.Ustad Hadawi relates:“My daughter was very ill and I came to Ayatullah Behjat and asked him to pray for her. He told me, “You yourself recite the following du’a three times every day:

“Allahumma ishfiha bi shifaa-ika, wa daawiha bi dawaa-ika, wa ‘aafiha bi ‘aafiyatik” “O Allah, cure her with Your cure, and treat her with Your medicine, and restore her health with Your strength”.

Then, after the third time say:“Bi’l Imami’l-Kazim (A.S.), fa innaha amatuka wa bintu ‘abdik”.“By the sake of Imam al-Kazim (A.S.), for she is your servant, and the daughter of your servant.”

For Male Child say:-

“Allahumma ishfihe bi shifaa-ika, wa daawihe bi dawaa-ika, wa ‘aafihe bi ‘aafiyatik”“O Allah, cure him with Your cure, and treat him with Your medicine, and restore him health with Your strength”.

Then, after the third time say:“Bi’l Imami’l-Kazim (A.S.), fa innahu abdika wa ibnu abdik”.“By the sake of Imam al-Kazim (A.S.), for he is your servant, and the son of your servant


DUA Joshn Sagheer

This du'a is narrated on the authority of the seventh Imam Musa al-Kazim, peace he upon him, and it is said that it is a very effective supplication, having all the merits of al Jawshan al Kabir.

"Sayyid ibn Tawus in his book Muhaj al dawat have narrated that Imam Kazim (a.s.) used to recite this dua when he knew that the Abbaside caliph was planning to kill him"

 

 

The following dua'a for getting out of prison is reported to have been recommended by Imam Musa bin Jafar al Kazim (as)

YAA MUKHALLIS'ASH SHAJARI MIN BAYNI RAMLIN WA T'EENIN WA MAA-IN WA YAA MUKHALLIS'AL LABANI MIN BAYNI FARTHIN WA DAMIN WA YAA MUKHALLIS'AL WALADI MIN BAYNI MASHEEMATIN WA RAH'IMIN WA YAA MUKHALLIS'AN NAARI MIN BAYNIL H'ADEEDI WAL H'AJARI WA YAA MUKHALLISAR ROOH'I MIN BAYNIL AH'SHAA-I WAL AM-A'A-I KHALLIS'NEE MIN YADAY

Dua'a 140 -Imam Musa bin Jafar Al Kazim said :
If a person, subjected to oppression, recites (the following) du-a'a inshallah Allah will destroy the oppressor"

O He who equips me to cope with the hardships which have afflicted me, O He who helps me to take off the load of the sorrows which have burdened me, keeps an eye (which never sleeps) on me, make me competent to deal with (misfortunes) with the (help of) a strong reinforcement (from You) which cannot be knocked down. O He who owns the strongest strength, O He who owns the most majestic majesty, O He who owns the highest honour compared to which all that which has been created is low and humble, send blessings on Muhammad and on the children of Muhammad, make me competent to deal with the oppressor, and punish him for what he did to me.

According to Imam Musa bin Jafar al Kazim, to remove worries, recite any 100 verses of the holy Quran and at the end recite 3 times :O Allah, drive the misfortune away from me.

ALLAAHUMMAD - FA 'A'NNIL BALAA - A

According to Imam Musa bin Jafar al Kazim, if a man in trouble keeps with him written BISMILLA'AHIR RAH'MAANIR RAH'EEM Allah saves him from the worries he is afflicted with. Allah did not destroy Firwan in his house because BISMILLAAAHIR RAH'MAANIR RAH'EEM was written on his door.

For removing worries According to Imam Moosa Kazim (a.s.) for disappearance of worries and poverty one should recite ten times after (namaz subah) morning prayer, this Doa:-
 

The Almighty God is pure and I begin with His praise. I Pray salvation from Him and Supplicate His Blessings.

SOBHAANAL-LAHIL AZIME WA BE-HAMDEHI ASTAGHFIROOL-LAHA WA AS'ALOHOO MIN FAZLEHI

سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ الْعَظِيْمِ وَ بِحَمْدِهٖ أَسْتَغْفِرُ اللَّهَ وَ أَسْأَلُهٗ مِنْ فَضْلِه

Imam Moosa Kazim (a.s) narrates that when you have finished the evening ( Maghrib) prayer, then without talking to anyone, say the following a hundred times:

Bismillahir Rahmaan ir Raheem la haula wa la quwwata illa billahil ali il azeem

 

FOR PERSISTENT PAIN

Al-Hasan b. al-Husayn al-Damighani narrated from al-Hasan ‘Ali b. Faddal from Ibrahim b. Abu al-Bilad, who attributed it to Musa b. Jafar al-Kazim, peace be upon him, that he [Ibrahim] said: ‘The governor of Medina complained to him [Musa b. Jafar] of his son’s persistent pain.  He [Musa b. Jafar] said: “Write for him this invocation on parchment, put it in a silver container, and fasten it on to the boy.  Allah will remove every illness through it:

‘In the Name of Allah, I take refuge in Your Exalted Face, and Your Power, which nothing can resist, from the evil of what I fear in the night and the day from all the pains, and from the evil of this world and the next, and from every illness, pain, sorrow, sickness, affliction, or tribulation, or that which Allah knows he created me for and which I do not know myself.  Protect me, O Lord, from the evil of al of that in my night until it is morning, and in my day until it is evening.  By the Perfect Words of Allah, which neither the righteous nor the ungodly can pass over, and from the evil of what comes down from the heavens, and what ascends it, and what enters into the earth and what comes out of it.  Peace be upon the Messenger and praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.

‘I ask you, O Lord, by that with which Muhammad blessings of Allah on him and his Ahl al-Bayt, asked you, God is enough for me; there is no god but He.  In Him I have put my trust.  He is the Lord of the Mighty Throne (9:129).  Put a seal on that from You, O Good, O Compassionate, with Your Name, O Allah, the Single, the One, the Refuge.  Allah bless Muhammad and his family and repel from me the evil that I suffer, by Your Power.’”’

Salama b. Muhammad al-Ash’ari narrated from ‘Uthman b. ‘Isa who said: ‘A man complained to Abu al-Hasan, the first [Musa al-Kazim], peace be upon him, and said: “I have a rumbling.  It never subsides and I am ashamed of talking to the people for they will hear the sound of that rumbling in stomach.  So pray  for me to be cured of it.”  He [Abu al-Hasan] replied: “When you finish your night prayer, say: ‘O Allah, whatever I know of good , it is from you, there is no praise for me in it.  Whatever I know of evil, You have warned me of it, so I have no excuse in it. O Allah, I take refuge in You from relying on that in which there is no praise for me, or trusting in that for which I have no excuse.’

Dua’a 285

To cure any disease make a vow that if the ailing person gets well, 1400 or14000 salawaat will be recited for Imam Musa bin Jafar al Kazim.

 

ALLAAHUMMA S’ALLI A’LAA MUH’AMMADIN WA AALI MUH’AMMAD  O Allah, send blessings on Muhammad and on the children of Muhammad.

 

Our Imams (a.s.) used to make long prostrations of thanksgiving. Specially Imam Moosa Kazim (a.s.) used to do the sajda after completing his fajr prayer which stretched well into the sun up. When he was asked about his Sajda e Shukr, the Imam (a.s.) said, one should recite the following supplication while doing the Sajda:

O Allah I bear witness to you, your angels and your prophets and your messengers and all your creations, that you Allah, is my Lord and Islam is my religion and Mohammed is my prophet, Ali, Hassan, Husain, Ali son of Husain, and Mohammed son of Ali,  Jaffer son of Muhammad, Musa son of Jaffer,  Ali son of Musa, Muhammad son of Ali, Ali son of Muhammad, Hassan son of Ali and  the Proof, son of Hassan , are my Imams and  I follow them and denounce their enemies..

His Supplications extract from Book By: Baqir Sharif al-Qarashi

Imam Musa devoted himself to Allah; he mentioned Him, the Most High. He supplicated Him with the supplication of those who turn to Allah in repentance. Supplication books have many of his supplications. As for the advantage of supplication, he has talked about it through his statement: “Adhere to supplication, for most surely supplication and request from Allah repel tribulation even if it is ordained and decreed and nothing has remained but carrying it out. When Allah, the Great and Almighty, is supplicated and asked, He turns away tribulation.”

He, peace be on him, has again talked about the advantages result from supplication, saying: “When a tribulation befalls a believing servant and Allah, the Great and Almighty, inspires him with supplication, the tribulation is about to be removed. When a tribulation befalls a believing servant and he refrains from supplicating (Allah), the tribulation lasts for a long (time); therefore when tribulation comes down, adhere to supplication and imploring Allah, the Great and Almighty.”[361] We will briefly present some of his supplications:

His Supplication against Someone who wronged him

He, peace be on him, supplicated with this holy supplication during his qunut against the ‘Abbasid Caliph who was a contemporary of him and made him suffer from various kinds of pang and pain. We will present the full text of the supplication, that, through it, what the Imam met from the tyrants of his time may be clear:

“O Allah, surely I and so-and-so son of so-and-so are two of your servants! Our forelocks are in Your hand. You know our resting place, our depository, our return, our abode, our secret and open deeds. You know our intentions and encompass our minds. Your knowledge of what we show is just as Your knowledge of what we hide. Your knowledge of what we conceal is just as Your knowledge of what we make public. None of our affairs is hidden from You; none of our conditions is covered from You. No fortress protects us from You; no sanctuary guards us from You and no place to flee from You. The fortresses do not preserve the unjust from You. His fighters do not struggle for him against You. No overcomer attempts to overcome You through his standing by him; You catch up with him wherever he walks and have power over him wherever he goes. Therefore the wronged from among us seeks refuge in You. The vanquished from among us relies on You, resorts to You, seeks help from You when deserted by the aider, cries to You for help when neglected by the helper, seeks shelter in You when banished by the courtyards, knocks on Your gate when doors with bolts are closed before him, reaches You when the heedless kings are veiled from him. You know what happens to him before he complains of it to You; You know what sets him right before he supplicates You for it; therefore praise belongs to You, O Aware, Knowing, Most Kind!

“O Allah, and that it certainly was in Your previous knowledge, Your firm decree, Your going on determination, and Your valid command. Your will is in process among all Your servants, happy and unhappy, pious and sinful. You have given so-and-so power over me, and he has wronged me with it, aggressed against me through his position, showed audaciousness and mighty through his authority with which You have invested him, showed tyranny and pride through his high state which You have given to him. Your giving respite to him has deluded him and Your clemency toward him has made him tyrannical, so he has aimed at me with detested things toward which I am impatient, intentionally performed to me evil (things) before which I am feeble. I cannot seek justice from him because of my frailty nor can I gain a victory over him because of the paucity (of my supporters); therefore I have entrusted his affair to You and I have relied on You in respect with his affair. You have threatened him with Your punishment, warned him through Your power, and frightened him with Your vengeance, but he has thought that Your clemency toward him is out of weakness, and Your giving respite to him is out of feebleness. None has prevented him from (doing) another, nor has he been prevented from a second by a first.

However, he has gone too far in his error, continued doing wrong, persevered in his enmity, and increased his tyranny, out of audaciousness toward You. O my Master and Protector! Undertake Your wrath You do not withhold from the oppressors. So here I am, O my Master, wronged under his authority, abased in his courtyard, transgressed, apprehensive, fearful, terrified, and vanquished. My patience has become little; my strength has become narrow. The ways have been closed before me except (the one leading) to You; the directions have been blocked up all around me except a direction to Your. My affairs have become ambiguous in repelling his detested things. The opinions have become dubious to me in removing his oppression; the one from among Your creatures I have asked for help has deserted me; the one from among Your servants to whom I have clung has handed me over. So I had consulted my adviser and he advised me to beseech You. I had asked my guide to show me the right way and he showed me none except You.

Therefore I have come back to You, O my Protector, lowly, willingly, miserable, knowing that there is no relief for me except from You, and there is no salvation for me except through You. Fulfill Your promise in helping me and grant my supplication; that is because Your words are true and are not refuted and changed. Certainly You, Blessed and Most High You are, have said: and he who has been oppressed, Allah will most certainly aid him; and You, Majestic is Your eulogy and Holy are Your names, have said: Supplicate Me and I will respond to you. So I am going to do what You have commanded me not by making You feel obliged. How can I make you feel obliged and You have guided me to it; therefore, respond to me just as You had promised me, O You Who do not fail to perform the promise. I certainly know, my Master, that You will some day take vengeance on the oppressors for the oppressed; I am sure that some time You will punish the usurper for the usurped. That is because no obstinate precedes You; no opponent comes out of Your grasp. You do not fear the escape of a escaper, but my impatience and dismay do not reach the patience toward Your deliberateness and waiting for Your clemency. So Your power, my Master, is over all powers; Your force overcomes all forces. Every body will return to You even if You give them time; all oppressor will come back to You even if You respite them.

O My Master, certainly Your clemency toward so-and-so, Your long deliberateness toward him, and Your giving him time have harmed me. Despair is about to dominate me were it not for trust in You and certainty in Your promise. So if it is in Your valid decree and Your going on power that he will turn to You in repentance or repent or withhold from wronging me or refrain from the things I detest and leave the great (sins) he commits (through wronging) me, then bless Muhammed and his family and let that fall into his heart before You remove Your blessing You have bestowed upon him and before You muddy Your good You have done to him. If Your knowledge of him is other than that of his station through which he has wronged me, then I ask You, O Helper of the wronged and transgressed, grant my supplication. Bless Muhammed and his family and overtake him in his place of safety with the overtaking of a Mighty, Powerful One. Surprise him during his inattention with the surprise of a Victorious King. Deprive him of his blessing and his authority, disband his troops and his helpers. Completely tear apart his kingdom, thoroughly scatter his supporters, isolate him from Your blessing for which he has showed neither gratitude nor kindness. Strip him of the shirt of Your Exaltation toward which he has showed no good turn. Snap him, O Snapper of the tyrants. Destroy him, O Destroyer of the bygone generations. Ruin him, O Ruiner of the oppressive nations. Abandon him, O Abandoner of the rebellious groups. Cut off his lifetime; take his properties; efface his trace; cut off his news; put out his fire; make dark his house; ball his sun; make him give up the ghost; smash his legs; cut off his head; rub his nose in the ground; hasten his death. Leave neither shield for him unless you destroy it, nor support for him unless You snap it, nor a union unless You scatter it, nor a post of loftiness unless You lower it, nor a pillar unless You undermine it, nor a tie unless You cut it off. Show us his helpers and troops as slaves after the exaltation; make them disunited after their unity, bow their heads after their show-off before the community. Relieve, through the removal of his affair, the fearful souls, the grieved hearts, the perplexed community, and the lost mankind. Show, through his removal, the suspended, prescribed punishments, the effaced laws (sunan), the neglected precepts, the changed, principal features (of religion), the distorted verses, the deserted schools, the abandoned places of worship, and the demolished shrines. Through it (his removal) satisfy the hungry, hollow stomachs.

Water, through it, the exhausted palates and the thirsty livers. Through it give rest to the tired feet. Strike him with an affliction that has no sister (lit. no like), with an hour when there is no abode, with a misfortune with which there is no refreshment, and with a stumble from which there is no release. Make lawful his forbidden things; muddy his ease. Show him Your most violent seizing, Your ideal vengeance, Your power that is over all powers, Your force that is mightier than his. Overcome him for me through Your strong strength and Your severe punishment. Protect me from him through Your protection. Afflict him with poverty he cannot redress and with evil he cannot cover. Entrust him to himself in what You desire. Surely You do what You desire! Release him from Your force and power and entrust him to his force and power. Remove his scheming through Your scheming; repel his will through Your will. Sicken his body; orphan his children; decrease his fixed term; disappoint his hope; remove his state; prolong his wailing; make him busy with his own body. Do not set him free from his sadness. Turn his trickery into error, his affair into disappearance, his comfort into removal, his earnestness into lowness, his authority into vanishing, and his final result into the most wicked result. Make him die of his fury if You intended to make him die; let him remain in grief if You intended to let him remain. Protect me from his evil, his backbite, his slander, his influence, and his enmity. Glance at him with a glance through which You destroy him; for most surely You are strongest in prowess and strongest to give an exemplary punishment.”[1]

From this holy supplication we conclude that Imam Musa met heavy misfortunes and exhausting pain from his opponent, for he did not supplicate against him with this supplication unless he filled his heart with severe sadness and bitter pain.

His Supplication in Seeking Needs

He, peace be on him, supplicated with this supplication when he was poverty or lack-stricken:

“O Allah, I ask You through him whose right against You is great to bless Muhammed and his family, to provide me with putting into practice the knowledge of Your right You have taught me, and to make easy to me Your provision of which You have deprived me.”[363]

His Supplication for Help in Repaying Debts

A Companion of the Imam’s complained to him of his accumulated debts against him, and he, peace be on him, wrote him the following supplication and ordered him to supplicate (Allah) with it:

“O Allah, repay to all Your creatures their complaints against me, small and great, through ease and well-being from You, and that which my strength cannot reach,

my own hand cannot embrace, my body, my certainty, and my soul cannot endure. So repay it on my behalf from the plentiful You have from Your favor. Then do not let anything of it remain behind me to settle it of my good deeds. O Most Merciful of the merciful! I testify that there is no god apart from Allah, Who is unique and without partners, that Muhammed is His servant and His Prophet, that the religion is just as He Has legislate, that Islam is just as He has described, that the Book is just as He has revealed, that the speech is just as He has related, and that Allah is the Clear Truth. Allah has mentioned Muhammed and his Household in a good way, and He has greeted Muhammed and his Household with (the greeting) salam.” [1]

His Supplication for Seeking Veil

Imam Musa, peace be on him, sought veil through the following supplication and sought protection with it:

“I have trusted in the Living, Who does not die; I have fortified myself in the Possessor of the might and invincibility; I have sought help from the Possessor of the magnificence and kingdom. O My Protector! I have submitted to You, so do not hand me over. I have trusted in You, so do not desert me. I have sought refuge in Your easy protection, so do not dismiss me. You are the Object of requests and to You is the flight. You know what I conceal and make public; You know the stealthy looks and that which the breasts conceal; therefore withhold from me, O Allah, the hands of the oppressive from among all the jinn and the men; heal me and make me well, O Most Merciful of the merciful!”[1]

It is enough for us to mention this number of his holy supplication that indicates that he devoted himself to Allah and clang to Him. Many of his supplications have been mentioned in the books al-Iqbal, Muhajj al-Da’awat, and other than them have been written on this subject.
