We have been commanded to recite this Dua regularly. Shayikh Sadooq narrates from Abdullah bin Sinan who says that Imam Sadiq (a.s.) said,"After this a time of such doubt will befall you that you will be without the visible signs and a guiding Imam. And no one shall be able to achieve salvation from this except those who recite "Dua-e-Ghareeq."
The narrator asked what this Dua was? Imam (a.s.) replied, After repeating 'Muqallebal Quloob' the narrator added the word, 'Wal absaar' (and the vision). When Imam (a.s.) heard this, he said, "Indeed Allah is the Who changes the hearts and vision, but you recite the Dua as I have said."   (Kamaluddin Vol. 2 Pg. 351)

يَا اَللَّهُ يَا رَحْمٰنُ يَا رَحِيمُ

Dua'a e Marefat e Imam (atfs) -short    

Zurarah a companion of Imam Sadiq (as) asked “What is the best action during occultation?” Imam (as) replied Always recite the following supplication. 

   اَللّٰهُمَّ عَرِّفْنِىْ نَفْسَك َ -   فَاِنَّكَ اِنْ لَّمْ تُعَرِّ فْنِىْ نَفْسَكَ لَمْ اَعْرِفْ رَسُوْلَكَ
Allahumma a'arifni nafsak. Fa innaka in lam to arrifni nafsaka lam a'rif nabiyeka.
O Allah introduce Your self to me - For, if you do not introduce Your self to me, I will not recognize Your Prophet (saws).

 اَللّٰهُمَّ عَرِّفْنِىْ رَسُوْلَكَ  -  فَاِنَّكَ اِنْ لَمْ تُعَرِّ فْنِىْ رَسُوْلَكَ لَمْ اَعْرِفْ حُجَّتَكَ
Allhumma a'rifni rasoolaka fa innaka in lam to a'rifni rasoolaka, lam a'rif hujjatak.
O Allah make me recognize Your Prophet (saws) ,- because if I do not recognize Your Prophet (saws), I will not recognize Your Proof [Imam (as)].

 اَللّٰهُمَّ عَرِّفْنِىْ حُجَّتَكَ  -  فَاِنَّكَ اِنْ لَّمْ تُعَرِّ فْنِىْ حُجَّتَكَ ضَلَلْتُ عَنْ دِيْنِىْ
Allahumma a'rrifni hujjatak fa innaka in lam to a'rifni hujjatak, zalal to an deeni.
O Allah make me recognize Your Proof (Imam) - For, if  you do not make me recognize Your Proof , I will deviate from my religion


The Supplication During the Age of Occultation -Long version    

Shaykh Tabarsi (a.r.), the renowned commentator of the Holy Quran, has recorded this supplication in his book ‘Kunooz al- Najaah’ and says, ‘This supplication was taught by our master Saaheb al-Zamaan (a.t.f.s.) to Abul Hasan Muhammad Ibn Ahmad Ibn Abi al-Lais in the city of Baghdad at the Graves of Quraish ( مقابر قريش ), where the latter had taken refuge, due to fear of death. On account of the blessings of this supplication, he was saved. This dua'a is attributed to the living Imam Mehdi (atfs). It brings immediate help from our living imam. It is recommended to be recited often by Ulama .Kafami says in his book Baladul Amin that if a wrongfully confined prisoner recites 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.

Salat/Supplication 2 for Great Calamities through Another Narration
Sayyed Ibn Taawoos (a.r.) mentions, ‘The prayers of al-Hujjah al- Qaem (a.t.f.s.) consists of two rak’ats. In each unit, Surah al-Hamd is recited, wherein the sentence ‘ ايّك نعبدُ و ايك نستعي ’ is to be recited hundred (100) times. After this Surah, recite Surah al-Tawheed once and then, supplicate in the following manner:

اَللّهُم عَظُ مَ الْبَلَاءُ، وَ بَرِ حَ الْخَفَاءُ وَ انْكَشَفَ الْغِطَاءُ، وَ ضَاقَتِ الْاَرْضُ بِم اَ وَسكِعَتِ السكّمَاءُ، وَ اِلَيْككَ ي اَ رَب الْمُشْتَكٰى، وَ عَلَيْككَ الْمُعَوّلُ فِىْ الشّدّةِ وَ الرّخَاءِ. اَللّهُم صكَلّ عَلىٰ مُحَمّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمّدٍ، الّذِيْنكَ اَمَرْتَن اَ بِطَاعَتِهِمكْ، وَ عَجّلِ اللّهُمّ فَرَجَهُمْ بِقَائِمِهِمْ، وَ اَظْهِرْ اِعْزَازَهُ. يَا مُحَمّدُ يَا عَلِيّ، يَا عَلِيّ يَا مُحَمّدُ، اكْفِيَانِىْ فَاِنّكُمَا كَافِيَايَ، يَا مُحَمّدّ يَا عَلِيّ، يَا عَلِيّ يَا مُحَمّدُ، اُنْصُرَانِىْ فَاِنّكُمَا نَاصِرَايَ، يَا مُحَمّدُ يَا عَلِيّ يَا عَلِيّ يَا مُحَمّدُ اِحْفَظَانِىْ فَاِنّكُمَا حَافِظَايَ. يَا مَوْلَايَ يَا صَاحِبَ الزّمَانِ، يَا مَوْلَايَ يَا صَاحِبَ الزّمَانِ، يَا مَوْلَايَ يَا صَاحِبَ الزّمَانِ، الْغَوْثَ الْغَوْثَ الْغَوْثَ اَدْرِكْنِىْ اَدْرِكْنِىْ اَدْرِكْنِىْ، اَلْاَمَانَ اَلْاَمَانَ اَلْاَمَانَ.1
Jamaal al-Usboo’, p. 170; Behaar al-Anwaar, vol. 91, p. 190; Wasaael al-Shia, vol. 8, p. 185
The dua Azumal Bala above is also recited after the salat
Prayer of the Twelfth Imam for fulfillment of needs[1]Al-Imam al-Mahdi wa Zuhoorehi, As-Sayyid Jawwad ash-Shahroodi, Pg. 335
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”, ‘ ايّك نعبدُ و ايك نستعي ’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.

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.

Shaykh Abbas Qummi (r.a.), in his renowned compilation, 'Mafatihul Jinaan'. has reported this invocation on the authority of Shaykh Kafami from the latter's 'Misbahul Mutahajjid'. It is recommended that this supplication be recited after every obligatory Salat. Al-Kaf`ami, in al-Misbah, says “This is the prayer of Imam al-Mahdi(ajtfs)
