Two supplications of Imam Mahdi (a.s.)  ( Source Tohfatul Hashmiya)

These two brief supplications learnt by heart would be heavy in weight on the balance of deeds in the Hereafter.

First supplication

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ يَا مَالِكَ الرِّقَابِ وَ هَازِمِ اْلاَحْزَابِ يَا مُفَتِّحَ اْلاَبْوَابِ يَا مُسَبِّبَ اْلاَسْبَابِ، سَبِّبْ لَنَا سَبَبًا لاَ نَسْتَطِيْعُ لَهُ طَلْباً، بِحَقِّ لاَ اِلٰهَ إِلاَّ اللهُ مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَوَاتُ اللهِ عَلَيْهِ وَ اٰلِهِ اَجْمَعِيْنَ.

Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eem. Yaa maalikar riqaabi wa haazimil ah’zaabi yaa muftih’al abwaab. yaa musabbibal asbaab Sabbib lanaa sababal laa nastat’eeu’ lahu t’albaa. Bih’aqqi laa ilaaha illallaahu muh’ammadur rasoolullaahi s’alawaatullaahi a’laihi wa aalihi ajmae’e’n.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. O owner of the slaves and the vanquisher of the confederations. O opener of the doors. O cause of the causes. Make a cause for us as we are not capable to seek it. By the right of “there is no god except Allah. Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.” Allah’s blessings be on him and all his progeny.[1]

Second supplication

اِلٰهِىْ بِحَقِّ مَنْ نَاجَاكَ، وَ بِحَقِّ مَنْ دَعَاكَ فِىْ الْبِرِّ وَ الْبَحْرِ، صَلِّ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اٰلِهِ، وَ تَفَضَّلْ عَلٰی فُقَرَآءِ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ بِالْغِنٰي وَ السِّعَةِ، وَ عَلٰی مَرْضَی الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ بِالشَّفَاءِ وَ الصِّحَّةِ وَ الرَّاحَةِ، وَ عَلٰی اَحْيَاءِ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ بِاللُّطْفِ وَ الْكَرَامَةِ، وَ عَلٰی اَمْوَاتِ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ بِالْمَغْفِرَةِ وَ الرَّحْمَةِ، وَ عَلٰی غُرَبَاءِ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ بِالرَّدِّ إِلٰی اَوْطَانِهِمْ سَالِمِيْنَ غَانِمِيْنَ بِحَقِّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَّ اٰلِهِ اَجْمَعِيْنَ.

Ilaahi bih’aqqi man naajaak. Wa bih’aqqi min dua’a’k. fil baari wal bah’r. s’alli a’laa muh’ammadinw wa aalih. Wa tufaz”z”il a’laa fuqaraa-il mu-mineena wal mu-minaati bil ghanee was sia’t. wa a’laa marz”al mu-mineena wal mu-minaati bish shifaa-i was’ s’ah’h’ati war raah’at. Wa a’laa ah’yaa-il mu-mineea wal mu-minaati bil lut’fi wal karaamah. Wa a’laa amwaatil mu-mineena wal mu-minaat bil maghfirati war rah’mah. Wa a’laa ghurabaa-il mu-mineena wal mu-minaati bir raddi ilaa aut’aanihim saalimeena ghaanimeena bih’aqqi muh’ammadinw wa aalihi ajmae’e’n.

O my God, by the right of one whom You saved. And by the right of one who called You in the land and the sea. Bless Muhammad and his progeny. And favor the poor believing men and women by needlessness and prosperity. And the ailing believers with cure and health. And the living believing men and women by grace and kindness. And the departed believing men and women by forgiveness and mercy. And make those of the believing men and women who are away from their homeland to return to their native places, safe and enriched. By the right of Muhammad and all his progeny.

Prayer of the Twelfth Imam for fulfillment of needs[1]

One who has a need should perform Ghusl on Friday eve after midnight, and come to the place of prayers and perform two rakats (units) prayer and in the first rakat he should recite Surah al-Hamd and when he reaches: “Iyyaka Na’budoo we iyyaka Nastaeen”, he should repeat this a hundred times and continue with the Surah and after that recite Surah Tawheed once. Then he should perform the Ruku (bowing) and Sajdahs (prostration) and therein recite the recitations of Ruku and Sajdah seven times. Then recite the second rakat also in the same manner and then recite the following supplication. The Almighty Allah would fulfill his needs, whatever sort of a person he is, however he should not be of those who have broken off relation with his relatives. The supplication is as follows:

اَللَّهُمَّ اِنْ اَطَعْتُكَ فَالْمَحْمَدَةُ لَكَ، وَ إِنْ عَصَيْتُكَ فَالْحُجَّةُ لَكَ، مِنْكَ الرَّوْحُ وَ مِنْكَ الْفَرَجُ، سُبْحَانَ مَنْ اَنْعَمَ وَ شَكَرَ سُبْحَانَ مَنْ قَدَّرَ وَ غَفَرَ اللَّهُمَّ إِنْ كُنْتُ عَصَيْتُكَ فَإنِّیْ قَدْ اَطَعْتُكَ فِىْ اَحَبِّ اْلاَشْيَاءِ إِلَيْكَ وَ هُوَ الإِيْمَانُ بِكَ لَمْ اَتَّخِذْ لَك وَلَدًا وَّ لَمْ اَدْعُ لَك شَرِيْكًا مَنًّا مِنْكَ بِهِ عَلَىَّ لاَ مَنَّا مِنِّیْ بِهِ عَلَيْكَ وَ قَدْ عَصَيْتُكَ يَا إِلٰهِىْ عَلٰی غَيْرِ وَجْهِ الْمُكَابَرَةِ وَ لاَ الْخُرُوْجِ عَنْ عُبُوْدِيَّتِكَ وَ لاَ الْجُحُوْدِ لِرُبُوْبِيَّتِكَ وَ لٰكِنْ اَطَعْتُ هَوٰاىَ وَ اَزَلَّنِيْ الشَّيْطَانُ فَلَكَ الْحُجَّةُ عَلَىَّ وَ الْبَيَانُ فَإِنْ تُعَذِّبْنِيْ فَبِذُنُوْبِىْ غَيْرُ ظَالِمٍ لِىْ، وَ إِنْ تَغْفِرْ لِىْ وَ تَرْحَمْنِيْ فَإِنَّكَ جَوَادٌ كَرِيْمٌ يَا كَرِيْمُ يَا كَرِيْمُ...

Allaahumma in at’a’tuka fal mah’madatu lak. Wa in as’aituka falh’ujjatu lak. Minkar rauh’u wa minkal faraj. Sub-h’aana man an-a’ma wa shakara sub-h’aana man qaddara wa ghafarallaahumma in kuntu a’s’aituka fa-innee qad at’a’tuka fee ah’abbil ashyaa-i ilaika wahuwal eemaanu bika lam attakhidh laka waladanw wa lam ad-u’ laka shareekam mannaa minka bihi a’layya laa mannam minni bihi a’laika wa qad a’s’aituka yaa ilaahee a’laa ghairi wajhil mukaabarati wa lal khurooji a’n u’boodeeyatika wa lal juh’oodi liruboobeeyatika wa laakin at’a’tu hawaaya wa azallanish shait’aanu falakal h’ujjatu a’layya wal bayaanu fa-in tuadhdhibnee fabidhunoobee ghairu z’aalimil lee. Wa in taghfirlee wa tarh’amnee fa-innaka jawaadun kareemun yaa kareemun yaa kareem.

O Allah, if I obey You, then the essence of praise is for You, and if I disobey You then the Proof is for You. From You is comfort and from You is success. Glory be to the one who has bestowed favors and thanked. Glory be to the One who commanded and forgave. O Allah, if I am disobedient to you, then I indeed I have also obeyed You in those matters that You prefer most, and it is belief (faith) in You. I have not taken for You any son and neither have I considered anyone Your partner even then the favor is from you upon me and there is no favor from me upon You. Also I have indeed disobeyed You O My Allah, this disobedience was not due to pride or due to leaving Your worship or due to the denial of Allah. It is only that I have obeyed my desires and the Satan misled me. Then Your proof is complete upon me and Your decision. Then if You punish me for my sins, You would not be unjust to me. But if You forgive me and have mercy on me, then indeed You are the Generous, the Kind, O Kind O Kind …. (till the breath breaks)

Then say after this:

يَا آمِنًا مِنْ كُلِّ شَیْءٍ وَ كُلُّ شَىْءٍ مِنْكَ خَائِفٌ حَذِرٌ اَسْاَلُكَ بِاَمْنِكَ مِنْ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ وَ خَوْفِ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ مِنْك اَنْ تُصَلِّىَ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَنْ تُعْطِيَنِيْ اَمَانًا لِنَفْسِىْ وَ اَهْلِىْ وَ وَلَدِىْ وَ سَائِرِ مَا اَنْعَمْتَ بِهِ عَلَىَّ حَتَّی لاَ اَخَافَ وَ لاَ اَحْذَرَ مِنْ شَىْءٍ اَبَدًا إِنَّكَ عَلٰی كُلِّ شَیْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ وَ حَسْبُنَا اللهُ وَ نِعْمَ الْوَكِيْلُ يَا كَافِىَ إبْرَاهِيْمَ نَمْرُوْدَ وَ يَا كَافِىَ مُوْسٰی فِرْعَوْنَ اَسْاَلَُكَ اَنْ تُصَلِّىَ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ اَنْ تَكْفِيَنِيْ شَرَّ فُلاَنَ بْنَ فُلاَنٍ.

Yaa aaminam min kulli shai-inw wa kullu shai-im minka khaa-ifun h’adhirun as-aluka bi-amnika min kulli shai-inw wa khaufi kulli shai-im minka an tus’alliya a’laa muh’ammadinw wa aali muh’ammad. Wa antut’ t’iyanee amaanal linafsee wa ahlee wa waladee wa saa-iri maa an-a’mta bihi a’layya h’atta laa akhaafa wa laa ah’dhara min shai-in abadan innaka a’laa kulli shai-in qadeer. Wa h’asbunallaahu wa ni’mal wakeel. Yaa kaafiya ibraaheema numrooda wa yaa kaafiya moosaa fira’una as-aluka antus’alliya a’laa muh’ammadinw wa aali muh’ammadinw wa antakfiyanee sharra fulaanabna fulaan.

O One Who is safe from everything and everything is fearful of Him. I ask in the name of this safety and in the name of the fearfulness of everything that You bless Muhammad and the Progeny of Muhammad and accord me safety in my self, my family and my children, so in me also no fear remains of anything, ever. You are powerful over everything and Allah is sufficient for us and the best of the executors. O one who sufficed for Ibrahim against Nimrod and sufficed for Musa against Pharaoh. I beseech You that You bless Muhammad and the Progeny of Muhammad and be sufficient for me against the mischief of the enemy. (Then soon Allah would prevent the mischief of one whose mischief one fears).

Then prostrate and ask for the needs, and beseech Allah. No believing man or woman ever recites this sincerely except that the doors of heavens open to fulfill his or her needs and it will be accepted at that very moment at the place he or she is and this is a blessing of Allah upon the people.
