Dua'a For Last Day(s) of SHA`BAN     

'Laws' for Fasting on yawmul Shak (day of doubt if Ramadhan month has begun) 

Prepare for Ramadhan month   |    Duas for the First Day of Ramadhan |   Pdf (al-mubin.org)

Imam al-Ridha(a.s) is reported as saying, “If one observes fasting on the last three days of Sha`ban and attach it to the obligatory fasting of Ramadan, Almighty Allah will reward him as if  he has observed fasting for two consecutive months.”

It has been narrated in the book `Uyun al-Akhbar al-Ridha from Abi Salt al-Harawi that when he visited Imam al-Ridha (a.s) on the last Friday of Sha`ban, the Imam said to him, “Abu’Salt: The majority of Sha`ban has passed. This is the last Friday in it. You should thus settle what you have missed in this month by working hard in the rest of it. You may supplicate, seek forgiveness of Almighty Allah, recite the Holy Qur'an, and repent before Almighty Allah from your sins so that you receive the month of Ramadan with pure sincerity to Almighty Allah. You must fulfill all the trusts that you are liable to settle; and do not bear malice against any of your brethren-in-faith; and you must give up any sin that you commit. Fear Almighty Allah and trust in Him in secret and openly, for ‘If any one puts his trust in Allah, sufficient is (Allah) for him. For Allah will surely accomplish his purpose: verily, for all things has Allah appointed a due proportion. 65/3’(Uyun Al-akhbar Ar-reza )

In the rest days of Sha`ban, you may repeat the following supplication very much for Almighty Allah saves many people from Hellfire on account of the sanctity of this month:  Image

O Allah: If You have not forgiven us in the past days of Sha`ban,

alluhumma in lam takun ghafarta lana fima madha min sha`bana

اللّهُمَّ إنْ لَمْ تَكُنْ غَفَرْتَ لَنَا فِيمَا مَضَى مِنْ شَعْبَانَ

(please do) forgive us in the rest of it.

faghfir lana fima baqiya minhu

فَاغْفِرْ لَنَا فِيمَا بَقِيَ مِنْهُ.

Shaykh al-±£siy has narrated on the authority of °¡rith ibn Mugh¢rah al-Na¤riy that Imam al-¯¡diq (a.s) used to say the following supplication at the last night of Sha`b¡n and the first night of Rama¤¡n:  

O Allah: verily, this blessed month, in which the Qur'¡n was revealed

all¡humma inna h¡dh¡ alshshahra almub¡raka alladhy ’unzila f¢hi alqur’¡nu

اللّهُمَّ إنَّ هذَا الشَّهْرَ الْمُبَارَكَ الَّذِي أُنْزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ

and was made guidance for people and clear proofs of the guidance, and the Criterion (of right and wrong),

wa ju`ila hudan lilnn¡si wa bayyn¡tin mina alhud¡ wal-furq¡ni

وَجُعِلَ هُدَىً لِلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِنَ الْهُدَى وَالْفُرْقَانِ

So, (please) keep us out of blemish during it, and keep it sound for us,

O’ He who acknowledges and gives answer many times to the very little offered to Him and thanks us by giving us plenty,

man akhadha alqal¢la wa shakara alkath¢ra

يَا مَنْ أَخَذَ الْقَلِيلَ وَشَكَرَ الْكَثِيرَ

(please) accept from me the little (deed).

O Allah: I beseech You to make for me a path to every decency,

اللّهُمَّ إنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ أَن ْتَجْعَلَ لِي إلَى كُلِّ خَيْرٍ سَبِيلاً،

and to make for me a barrier against everything that You do not like

wa min kulli m¡ tu¦ibbu m¡ni`an

وَمِنْ كُلِّ مَا لا تُحِبُّ مَانِعاً

O the most Merciful of all those who show mercy.

O He Who has pardoned me and overlooked the misdeeds that I have committed secretly;

man `af¡ `ann¢ wa `amm¡ khalawtu bihi mina alssayyi’¡ti

يَا مَنْ عَفَا عَنِّي وَعَمَّا خَلَوْتُ بِهِ مِنَ السَّيِّئَاتِ،

O He Who has not punished me for my committing acts of disobedience to Him:

man lam yu´¡khidhny bi¡rtik¡bi alma`¡¥¢

يَا مَنْ لَمْ يُؤَاخِذْنِي بِارْتِكَابِ الْمَعَاصِي،

`afwaka `afwaka `afwaka y¡ kar¢mu

عَفْوَكَ عَفْوَكَ عَفْوَكَ، يَا كَرِيمُ.

O my God: You advised me, but I have not followed Your advice,

il¡hy wa `a¨tany falam atta`i¨

إلهِي وَعَظْتَنِي فَلَمْ أَتَّعِظْ،

and You rebuked me for violating that which You have deemed forbidden, but I have not stopped,

wa zajartany `an ma¦¡rimika falam anzajir

وَزَجَرْتَنِي عَنْ مَحَارِمِكَ فَلَمْ أَنْزَجِرْ،

Now, what is my excuse?

So, (please) pardon me, O the All-generous; I seek Your pardon, I seek Your pardon!

f¡`fu `ann¢ y¡ kar¢mu `afwaka `afwaka

فَاعْفُ عَنِّي يَا كَرِيمُ، عَفْوَكَ عَفْوَكَ.

O Allah: I beseech You for rest at death,

اللّهُمَّ إنّي أَسْأَلُك َالرَّاحَةَ عِنْدَ الْمَوْتِ،

and for pardon at calling to account.

wal-`afwa `inda al¦is¡bi

وَالْعَفْوَ عِنْدَ الْحِسَابِ،

Great is the sin of Your servant; so, let Your overlooking him be excellent.

`a¨uma aldhdhanbu min `abdika faliya¦suni alttj¡£uzu min `indika

عَظُمَ الذَّنْبُ مِنْ عَبْدِكَ فَلْيَحْسُنِ التَّجَاوُزُ مِنْ عِنْدِكَ،

O He Who is worthy of being feared and is worthy of forgiving; I seek Your pardon, I seek Your pardon.

ahla alttaqw¡ wa y¡ ahla almaghfirati `afwaka `afwaka

يَا أَهْلَ التَّقْوَى وَيَا أَهْلَ الْمَغْفِرَةِ، عَفْوَكَ عَفْوَكَ.

Allah: I am Your servant and the son of Your servant and Your she-servant,

all¡humma inn¢ `abduka ibnu `abdika ibnu amatika

as You have recorded all their (i.e. Your servants) deeds,

a¦¥ayta a`m¡lahum

أَحْصَيْتَ أَعْمَالَهُمْ،

and You have decided the sustenance of each one them,

wa qasamta arz¡qahum

وَقَسَمْتَ أَرْزَاقَهُمْ،

and You have made them of different languages and colors; in different stages of creation;

wa ja`altahum mukhtalifatan alsinatuhum wa alw¡nuhum khalqan min ba`di khalqin

وَجَعَلْتَهُمْ مُخْتَلِفَةً أَلْسِنَتُهُمْ وَأَلْوَانُهُمْ خَلْقاً مِنْ بَعْدِ خَلْقٍ،

Your servants can never attain Your knowledge,

wa l¡ ya`lamu al`ib¡du `ilmaka

وَلا يَعْلَمُ الْعِبَادُ عِلْمَكَ،

and Your servants can never recognize the real estimate that is due to You

So, (please) do not turn Your Face away from me,

and include me with the virtuous creatures of You in deeds, hopes, and Your decisions (for me).

and decide for me to die in the best manner of death keeping loyal to Your representatives,

Imam al-Sadiq (a.s) used to say the following supplication at the last night of Sha`ban and the first night of Ramadhan:  PDF  |  Image(English) | MP3  |  VIDEO

O’ Allah! This is the blessed month in which the Qur˜an was revealed as guidance for mankind and clear evidence of guidance and discrimination (of the right from the wrong) is being witnessed by us. Therefore, keep us healthy in it and keep us sound in our faith in it and accept it from us in a state of prosperity and health granted to us by You, O’ He who acknowledges and gives answer many times to the very little offered to Him and thanks us by giving us plenty, accept my simple (acts).

O’ Allah! I ask You to provide me with a way towards all good and keep me away from all that You do not like, O’ the Most Merciful of those who show mercy!

O’ One who forgave me and forgave me all my misdeeds committed secretly. O’ One who does not punish me for my disobedience! Your forgiveness. Your forgiveness! Your forgiveness! O’ the Generous!

O’ my Lord! You admonished me but I did not respond; You reproached me concerning Your prohibited (things) but I cared not for it - what excuse do I now have? So then pardon me O’ the Generous!

Your pardon! Your Pardon!

O’ Allah! I beseech you for ease at the time of my death and forgiveness at the time of reckoning (on the Day of Resurrection). The sins of Your slave are great (in number) but forgiveness from You should serve my purpose well. O’ the One deserving to be feared and fitted to pardon. Your pardon! Your Pardon!

O’ Allah! I am Your servant, son of Your servant and son of Your slave girl, I am weak and stand in need of Your Mercy. You are Omnipotent and Mighty. You have reckoned their deeds and accordingly distributed to them their livelihood and made them creation after creation of different languages and colours. people know not what You know and esteem You not with the estimation due to You and all of us stand in need of Your mercy. Do not turn not Your face away from us and ordain in Your decree to make me among Your creatures - virtuous in deeds and hopes and in your decree and verdict.

O’ Allah! Keep me alive to live the best life (of righteousness) and cause me to die the best death in a state of love (in my heart) towards Your friends and in a state of enmity towards Your enemies and with a desire to meet You and fearing You and with humility and fulfilling the promise and submitting to Your will, testifying to Your Book and following the life-pattern of Your Messenger (Muhammad).

O’ Allah! That which lays hold of my mind (from the following): doubt, disbelief, disappointment, intoxication, conceit, insolence, vanity, show, desire for fame, disagreement, hypocrisy, infidelity, transgression, disobedience, pride or any thing that You do not love may kindly be substituted with: faith according to Your promise, inspiration to fulfill Your promises, contentment with Your decision, piety in the world, a desire of that which is with you (good) impression, mental tranquility, and a sincere repentance. I ask You O’ Lord! of the Worlds for all of these.

O’ my Lord! Disobedience to You is due to Your forbearance (of us disobeying you), and obedience is due to Your generosity and magnanimity as if You were never disobeyed. I and the other person who never disobeyed are the dwellers of Your earth. Therefore with Your grace, pardon me and invite us to You with Your goodness, O’ the Most Merciful of those who show Mercy!

And may the everlasting prayers of Allah be upon Muhammad and his progeny, unlimited blessing which neither could be reckoned nor appreciated by any one except

You. O’ the Most Merciful of those who show Mercy!

FASTING ON YAUMUL SHAK ( doubtful if Ramadhan month has begun)   http://islamic-laws.com/fast_rules.htm  JPG     PDF

The day about which you do not know whether it is 30th shaban or 1st Ramadhan is called Yaumul Shak. On this day it is haram to fast with the intention of 1st Ramadhan and a fast with this niyyat is invalid.

It is not wajib to fast on this day. However, It is Mustahab to keep fast on this day but the Niyyat (intention) should be either
(a) with the Niyyat of Mafiz-zimma (to discharge my responsibility), (although such a niyat is allowed, it is btter to avoid it)
(b) with the Niyyat of any Qaza fast of previous Ramadan, if any, or
(c) with the Niyyat of Mustahab Shaban fast. 

If you do a double Niyyat of fasting (i.e. 30th Shaban or 1st Ramadan), then such a Niyyat is wrong according Ayatullah Khui, but it is OK according to Ayt Khomeini and Ayt Seestani. Still it is better to avoid doing such a niyyat.
If you are fasting on Yaumul shak, and if, at any time on that day, you get the news of moon sighting of Ramadhan, then you must immediately change Niyyat to that of 1st of Ramadan.
If you have fasted on Yaumul shak (with any valid Niyyat), and afterwards( after the day is over) you come to know that it was 1st of Ramadan, then your fast will automatically be counted as fast of 1st of Ramadan. 

If you are not fasting on yaumul shak, then following actions are necessary on you:
(a) If you get the news after sunset of yaumul shak  that the moon had been actually sighted on evening of 29th Shaban, then you have to keep Qaza of 1st Ramadan after the month of Ramadan.
(b) If you get the news of moon sighting after Zawal time (Islamic mid-day), then it is haram to do anything which breaks a fast from that time until Iftar time on that day, and you have to do Qaza of 1st of Ramadan later on.
(c) If you get the news of moon sighting before Zawal time (Islamic mid-day), then
    (i) if you have not or done anything which breaks fast, you must immediately do the Niyyat of fasting of Ramadan for  that day. According to A . Seestani & A. Khomieni this is enough. According to A. khui (on the basis of ehtiyat e wajib) you have to keep a qaza fast too
   (ii) if you have done anything which breaks fast, then you have to imsaak ( refrain from anything that breaks fast) for the remainder of the day, and then do Qaza of 1st of Ramadan later on.
