(52) To be fortunate to see Imaam-e-Zamaana A.F. :-
Before going to sleep at night recite everyday from the Holy Qur'an Surahs called 'Musabbihaat'. i.e. S.Hadeed. S.Hashr. S.Saff. S.Jumuah. S.Taghaaboon. and S.A'alaa. The reciter shall not die until he sees the Imaam; otherwise if death came he will be in the proximity of the Holy Prophet S.A.W.W.

(53) The Holy Prophet S.A.W.W. said that a person who recites the following mentioned Aayaat will be safeguarded from all evil things, Shaytaan shall not come near to him/her, and he/she shall not forget Holy Qur'an: (a) First four Aayat of S.Baqarah, (b) Aayatul Kursee, (c) Two Aayats after Aayatul Kursee, (d) and last three Aayaats of S.Baqarah.

(54) Imaam Moosa Kadhim A.S. said that (A) whoever recites Aayatul Kursee when going to sleep should not have the fear of paralysis. (B) And if he or she recites it after every Waajib Namaaz any poison can not harm, (C) and anyone who recites Surah-e-Ikhlaas in front, back, right, left, up and down will remain unharmed from the enemy and will gain something from him. (D) He said that if you fear something then recite 100 verses from the Holy Qur'aan from any chapter and then recite this: "~ Allaahummakshif Annil Balaa'a. ~"

(55) Imaam Ja'afar Saadiq A.S. said that whoever has pure faith on Allaah S.W.T and believes on the day of Qayaamat should not abandon reciting Surah-e-Ikhlaas after every Wajib Namaaz because Allaah shall gather all the good of this world and of the hereafter for him and shall forgive his parents and children.

(56) The Holy Prophet S.A.W.W. said that Surah-e-Al'Hamd has so much effect that one should not be surprised if it is recited on the dead and its soul returns back.
Ameerul Mu'mineen A.S. said recite this Duaa to be safe from drowning and from fire:- "~ Allaahul-Ladhee Nazzalal Kitaba Wahuwa Yatawallas-Swaaliheen Wamaa Qadarullaaha Haqqa Qadrihee Wal Ardhu Jameean Qabdhwatuhoo Yawmal Qiyaamati Was-Samaawaatu Matwiyyaatun Bi Yameenihee Sub'haanahoo Wa Ta'aala Ammaa Yushrikoon. ~"
( = He is Allaah Who sent down the Book, and He guards the virtuous ones, they have not esteemed Allaah as is His due. While the whole earth shall be in His grip on the Day of Judgement, and Heavens rolled up shall be in His right hand. )

(= O my QAllaah O He Who gives back whatever is missing return to me that which I have lost. )

(58) Imaam Ja'afar Saadiq A.S. said do not hasitate to recite Surah-e-Zilzaal very often because anyone reciting it in Naafilah, upto the end of his life the lightening shall not strike him nor will he be effected by earthquake and he will remain unaffected by all tribulations. When his end shall near an angel will come to ease the death and good tidings of paradise shall be manifested to him and the Angle shall accompany him to Paradise.

(59) This Duaa is recommended to be recited during the Ghaybat (absence from our sights) of Imaam-e-Zamaana A.F.- "~ Allaahumma Arrifnee Nafsaka Fa Innaaka In'lam Tu'Arrifnee Nafsaka Lam A'arif Nabiyyaka, Allaahmma Arrifnee Rasoolaka Fa Innaka Inlam Tu'Arrifnee Rasoolaka Lam A'arif Hujjataka, Allaahumma Arrifnee Hujjataka Fa Innaka Inlam Tu'Arrifnee Hujjataka Dhwalaltu An Deenee.~"
( = O Allaah let me be fully aware of Your reality, because if You do not let me be fully aware of Your reality I can not know well Your Prophet. O Allaah let me be fully aware of Your Messenger, because if You do not let me know well Your Messenger I can not know well and be fully aware of Your Hujjat ( twelve Imaams). O Allaah let be be fully aware of Your Hujjat, because if You do not let me be fully aware of Your Hujjat then certainly You will allow me to go astray from my religion.)

(62) Imaam Ja'afar Sadiq A.S. said that the Duaa is incomplete if there is not Tamjeed (Praises for Allaah) before it; and this is sufficient : (a) " ~ Allaahumma Antal Awwalu Fa Laysa Qablaka Shay'un, Wa Antal Aakhiru Fa Laysa Ba'adaka Shay'un, Wa Antadh-Dhwaahiru Fa Laysa Fawqaka Shay'un, Wa Antal Baatwinu Fa Laysa Doonaka Shay'un, Wa Antal Azeezul Hakeem. ~ "
( =You are the First before Whom there is nothing. You are the Last after Whom there is nothing. You are the Menifest above Whom there is nothing. You are the Hidden beneath Whom there is nothing. And You are Almighty, the All-Wise. )
(b) This is also a Duaa from Imaam Ali A.S. for praising Allaah S.W.T. : " ~ Yaa Man Aqrabu Ilayya Min Hablil Wareed, Yaa Man Yahoolu Baynal Mar'i Wa Qalbihi, Yaa Man Huwa Bil Mandhwaril A'alaa Wa Bil Ufuqil Mubeen, Ya Man Laysa Kamithlihee Shay'un. ~"

( = I have accepted faith in One Allaah Who has no partner and I do not believe in Jibt and Taaghoot (idols), And I have also believed in the secret of Aali Muhammad, in their intentions, in their apparent, hidden, their first and in their last. )

(66) It is narrated to recite this Duaa while putting on the ring (veenti) : Alaahumma Sawminnee Bi Seemaa'il Eemaani Wakh-timlee Bi Khayrin Waj'al Aaqibatee Ilaa Khayrin, Innaka Antal Azeezul Hakeemul Kareem.
( =O Allaah grant me the characteristic of Eemaan and let my next existence be good, certainly You are Al-Mighty, All-Wise, Generous. )

(67) Farming is a very much prefered profession by Allaah S.W.T. All the Prophets, the Awsiyaahs, and the virtuous people from their Ummaah made farming to be their main business. The 6th Imaam A.S. said that nobody can do more purer and Halaal work then Farming business. The 4th Imaam A.S. said that Farming is the most excellent business. While tilling the land and sawing the seeds one should recite this Duaa:
(a) ~~Wa Mathalu Kalimatin Twayyibatin Ka Shajarati Twayyibatin Asluha Wa Saabitan Far'uha Fis-Samaai Tu'tee Ukulaha Kullu Heenin Bi Idhni Rabbiha~~.
( = Of a goodly word like a good tree whose origin is steadfastly fixed and its branches in the heavens, yielding its fruits every moment by the permission of its Lord Nourisher.)

(b) For harvesting a bumper crop recite 1001 times everyday ~ "ADH-DHAARRU"~

(68) When you want to grow the seeds in your farm take a handful of them in your hands, stand facing Qibla, and recite this 3 times : ~ Wa Antum Tadhra'oonahum Am Nahnudh-Dhaari'oon. ~ ( =What ! Is it you that grow it or are We the growers? ) Then recite : ~ Allaahumaj'alhu Harasam-Mubaarakan Warzuqna Feehees-Salaamata Wat-Tamaamata Waja'alhu Habbam- Mutaraakiban Walaa Tahrimnee Khayra Maa Abtaghee Walaa Taftinnee Bimaa Matta'anee Bihaqqi Muhammadin Wa Aalihit-Twayyibeen. ~ ( =O Allaah make this field worthwhile for us, and let us have enough food from this field with complete easiness, make these seeds into corn and the revenue which I seek from these, don't take away from me of it, for the sake of Muhammad S.A.W.W. and his Holy Progeny A.S. not to make me undergo trial through the profit that I receive. ) Then sow the seeds in the field.

(69) Imaam Jaa'far Saadiq A.S. said to recite this Duaa while putting on the lights in the house : ~ Allaahummaj'Alnaa Nooran-Namshee Bihee Fin-naasi Walaa Tahrimnaa Nooraka Yawma Nalqaaka Wa Ja'alnaa Nooran Innaka Noorun Laa Ilaaha Illa Anta. ~
( = O our Allaah light our path when we stroll among humanbeings, do not keep us missing from Your light on the day of Qayaamat, provide us with illumination, verily You are Light, There is no god except You. )

( =O our Allaah take us out of darkness to the light. )

(b)if a woman is scared in dreams, and (c) if some one is sleepless: ~ Fadharabnaa Alaa Aadhaanihim Fil Kahfi Sineena Adada, Thumma Ba'athnaahum Li Na'alamu Ayyul Hizbayni Ahswaa Limaa Labisu Amadaa. ~

(73) The Holy Prophet S.A.W.W. said that in a gathering or a sitting of people if there is no any mantion of Almighty Allaah S.W.T. nor Salawaat on the Prophet, then, on the Day of Judgement that gathering shall be a source of trouble for them. Therefore if we sit in certain gathering, we should atleast recite this : ~~Sub'haana Rabbika Rabbil Izzati Ammaa Yaswifoon, Wa Salaamun Alal Mursaleen, Wal Hamdu Lillaahi Rabbil Aalameen.~~~
( = Glorified be Your Lord. the Lord of Majesty, from that which they attribute to Him, and pay your respects to the Messengers, and Praise is for Allaah, Lord of the worlds. )
