In the name of Allah,
The Beneficent, The Merciful
Make lots of prayers for the hastening of relief, for in it is your relief"
- Letter from Imam Zamaan (ATF)
Grand Ayatollah Sayed M. Taqi al Modarresi has called on Shias all over the
world to ask for the reappearance of the Awaited Savior by performing the
special Salaat Imam-e-Zamaan (see below for instructions) on the eve of the
23rd of the month of Ramadhan, the Night of Destiny, which is inextricably
linked to the Imam of our time
We call on all believers to take part in this global campaign and perform
this brief Salaat on this special night, as that could hasten the Dawn of
Humanity and fill the earth with justice and end all oppression.
Over a million pilgrims are expected to take part in this campaign in the
holy shrine of Imam Hussein and perform the prayer under the glorious dome
of the Imam, with millions of others in various Middle Eastern cities across
the region, and we ask believers around the world to join them.
How to perform the special prayer of Imam Zamaan:
It is composed of 2 Rak'ats, each with Surat al Fateha, until
one reaches verse: 5: "Iyyaka naA'budu wa iyyaka nastaA'een", then
one repeats this verse 100 times, then completes the Surah. After Surat
Surat al Ekhlas is recited once.
The second Rak'ah is done in the same manner.
Following the end of the prayer, the following supplication is recited:
DU-A' FARAJ - A A'Z'UMAL BALAA
Kafami says in his book
Baladul Amin that if a wrongfully confined prisoner recite this dua'a he
will soon be set free.
If a person find himself surrounded by misfortunes or intrigues he must
recite this dua'a to come through tight situations, deadlock and crises.This
dua'a is attributed to the living Imam Sahibuz zaman.It brings immediate
help from our living imam.
O Allah, terrible was the
calamity, and its evil consequences are visible, the covering
has been removed, (all) hopes have been cut off, the (plentiful)
earth has shrunk (with very little to spare), the heavenly
blessings have been withheld. You alone can help, we refer our
grief and sorrow to You, we have full faith in You, in the time
of distress, as well as in good fortune. O Allah, send blessings
on Muhammad and on the children of Muhammad, whom we must obey
as per Your command, through which we become aware of their rank
and status, and let there be joy after sorrow for us, for their
sake, right away, in the twinkle of an eye, more rapidly than
that. O Muhammad, O Ali, O Ali, O Muhammad, Give me enough,
because both of you provide sufficiently. Help me, because both
of you help and protect.
O our master, O the living Imam, HELP!
HELP! HELP!Reach me! Reach me! Reach me!
At once, in this hour. Be
quick, be quick, be quick, O the most merciful, for the sake of
Muhammad and his pure children.
