..and when the servant ( of Allah) turns to His master in the middle of the night and does Munajat, Allah will illuminate his heart...

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.  O Allah, bless Muhammad and his family.

O Allah, I ask You for protection on the day when property will not avail, nor sons except he who comes with a heart free (from evil)(26: 88)

And I ask You for protection on the day when the unjust one will bite his hands saying: O would that I had taken a way with the messenger.(25; 27)

and I ask You for protection on the day when the guilty shall be recognized by their marks so they shall be seized by the forelocks and the feet.(55; 41)

and I ask You for protection on the day when a father shall not give any satisfaction for his son nor shall the child give any satisfaction for his father, Surely the promise of Allah is true.31; 33)

and I ask You for protection on the day when the unjust shall not benefit from their excuse and for them is curse and for them is the evil abode.(40; 52)

and I ask You for protection on the day when no soul shall control anything for (another) soul and the command on that day shall be entirely Allah's.(82; 19)

and I ask You for protection on the day when a man shall flee from his brother, and his mother, his father, his spouse, and his children, each one of them on that day will have a concern which will occupy him.(80;34)

and I ask You for protection on the day when the guilty will wish to redeem himself from the chastisement of that day by (sacrificing) his children, and the near of kin who gave him shelter and all those that are in the earth (wising) that this might deliver him. by no means! Surely it is a flaming fire, dragging by the head (70; 11; 16)

A Hadith on Munajat  A Hadith of the Holy Prophet (s) says:

and when the servant ( of Allah) turns to His master in the middle of the night and does Munajat, Allah will illuminate his heart. And when he says My Lord, the Most Majestic will respond saying, Here I am O My servant, ask Me and I will give you, and rely on Me, I will be sufficient for you. then Allah turns to the angels and says: My angels! Look at my servant. He has turned to me in the middle of the night, while the idle ones are oblivious, and the heedless ones are sleeping. Bear witness that I have forgiven him.
 

A Note on Munajat

The word Munajat in Arabic is sometimes confused with the Urdu word munajat meaning a recital or aQasida. This Munajat is often recited in praise of the Ahlul bayt (a). However the word Munajat in Arabic means secret conversation or confidental talk. It comes from the word Najwa Allah says in the Holy Quran:

There is no secret conversation between three people except that he is the fourth of them nor (between) five but He is the sixth of them, nor less than that nor more but He is with them wheresoever they are: then He will inform them of what they did on the Day of resurrection: surely Allah is aware of all things.(58.7)

for the belivers who love Allah, the Munajat is a form of communication with their Lord which gives peace and solace to the hearts. Many Imams have Munajat which have been compiled in different books. An example is As-Saheefa as- Sajjadiyyah which has 15 whispered prayers from Imam Zaynul' Abidin(a)

And I ask You for protection on the day when the guilty will wish to redeem himself from the chastisement of that day by (sacrificing) his children, and the near of kin who gave him shelter and all those that are in the earth (wising) that this might deliver him ...

wa as-alukal a-maana yawma ya-waddul mujrimu law yaftadee min a’d’aabi yawma-id’im bibaneehee wa s’aahibatihee wa akheehee wa fas’eelatil latee tooweehi wa man fil arz”l jamee-a’n thumma yunajjeehi
