Authenticity and answer to doubts


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
ya allahu ya rahmanu ya rahimu
O Allah! O All-beneficent! O All-merciful!

يَا مُقَلِّبَ ٱلْقُلُوبِ

The Supplication During the Age of Occultation -Long version
Salat Imam Mahdi(ajtfs) and Dua Ilahi Azumal Bala

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.

Dua Ya Man Azharal Jameel

Supplications after Every Obligatory Prayer
Shaykh Saduq (a.r.), in Man Yahzarul Faqih narrates from the ninth Imam, Muhammad al-Jawad (a.s.), the following supplication:
رَضِيْتُ بِالِ رَبّا وَ بِاْلِسْلَمِ دِيْنًا وَ بِالْقُرْآنِ كِتَابًا وَ بِمُحَمّدٍ صَلّی الُ عَلَيْهِ

وَ اَرِ هِ م اَ يُحِب وَ تَقَرّبِهِ عَيْنُهُ فِ يْ نَفْسِهِ وَ فِ يْ ذُرّيّتِهِ وَ اَهْلِهِ وَ مَالِهِ وَ فِيْ شِيْعَتِهِ وَ فِيْ عَدُوّهِ،
وَ اَرِهِمْ مِنْهُ مَا يَحْذَرُوْنَ،
وَ اَرِهِ فِيْهِمْ ماَ يُحِب و تَقَرّبِهِ عَيْنُهُ،
وَ اشْفِ بِهِ صُدُوْرَنَا وَ صُدُوْرَ قَوْمٍ مُؤْمِنِيْنَ.

5) Supplication Enhances Longevity
Among the deeds that are stressed upon, is to pray for the early reappearance of Imam al-Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) after every obligatory prayer. The author of Mikyaal al-Makaarim has supported this idea with the help of the following tradition which says, “Whoever recites the following invocation after every obligatory prayer, his life will be prolonged till he sees Imam-e-Zamaan (a.t.f.s.).” The invocation is as follows:
اََللّهُم صكَلّ عَل یٰ مُحَمّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمّدٍ،
اََللّهُم اِن رَسكُولَكَ الصكّادِقَ الْمُصَدّقَ صَلَوَاتُكَ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ قَالَ اِنّكَ قُلْتُ: ’’مَا تَرَدّدْتُ فِيْ شَىْءٍ اَنَا فَاعِلُهُ كَتَرَدّدىِْ فِيْ قَبْضِ رُوْحِ عَبْدِىَ الْمُؤْمِنِ،
يَکْرَهُ الْمَوْتَ وَ اَنا اَکْرَهُ مَسَائَتَهُ.‘‘
اََللّهُمّ فَصَلّ عَلٰی مُحَمّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمّدٍ،
وَ عَجّلْ لَوْلِيَائِكَ الْفَرْجَ وَ النّصْرَ وَ الْعَافِيْةَ،
وَ لَ تَسُوْنِىْ نَفْسِىْ وَ لَ فِيْ فُلنٍ.
قَالَ )عليه السلم(: وَ تَذْکُرُ مَنْ شِئْتَ.

1 Mikyaal al-Makaarim, vol. 2, p. 4; Behaar al-Anwaar, vol. 86, p. 61 narrating from Ikhteyaar of Ibn al-Baaqee.

6) Another Invocation for Longevity
Allama Majlisi, in Kitab al-Salaat of Behaar al-Anwaar, narrates from “Falaah al-Saael” of the renowned scholar, Sayed Ibn Tawoos, who writes, “Abu Muhammad Haroon Ibn Musa relates from Abu al-Hasan Ali Ibn Yaqub al-Ajali al-Kesaai, from Ali Ibn al-Hasan Ibn Fazaalah, from Ja’far Ibn Muhammad Ibn Hakeem, from Jameel Ibn Darraaj, who recounts, “ A man came to the presence of Imam Sadeq (a.s.) and said, “O Master! I have become old and my relatives have died. I am afraid that I too may become a victim of the clutches of death while I don’t have anybody with whom I am acquainted and can refer to him.” Imam (a.s.) replied, “Surely among your believing brothers, there is somebody who is very close to you in relation. Your closeness with him is to the extent of intimacy. Yet, it is necessary that after every prayer, you recite the following supplication:
اََللّهُم صَلّ عَلٰی مُحَمّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمّدٍ،
اََللّهُم اِن ال صّادِقَ عَلَيْ هِ اَل سّلَمُ قَالَ: اِنّكَ قُلْتُ:
’’مَا تَرَدّدْتُ فِيْ شَیْءٍ اَنَا فَاعِلُهُ كَتَرَدّدىِْ فِيْ قَبْضِ رُوْحِ عَبْدِىَ الْمُؤْمِنِ، يَکْرَهُ الْمَوْتَ وَ اَکْرَهُ مَسَائَتَهُ.‘‘
اََللّهُمّ فَصَلّ عَلٰی مُحَمّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمّدٍ وَ عَجّلْ لِوَلِيّكَ الْفَرَجَ وَ الْعَافِيْةَ وَ النّصْرَ،
وَ لَ تَسُؤْنِىْ فِيْ نَفْسِىْ وَ لَ فِيْ اَحَدٍ مِنْ اَحِبّتِىْ.
If you want name them one by one, if you wish, name them separately or if you so desire, name them together.” The man said, “By Allah! I lived my life to the fullest.”

7) Supplication of Revenge ( (النتقام Imam Sadeq (a.s.) says,“Among our rights on our Shias is that they hold their beards and say after every obligatory prayer thrice,
ي اَ رَب مُحَمّدٍ، عَجّلْ فَرَجكَ آلِ مُحَمّدٍ، ي اَ رَب مُحَمّدٍ،
اِحْفَظكْ غَيْبَةَ مُحَمّدٍ، يَا رَبّ مُحَمّدٍ،
اِنْتَقِمْ لِبْنَةِ مُحَمّدٍ صَلّی الُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ وَ سَلّمَ.

Supplications During and After Prayers 87
عَلَنِيَةٌ، اَىْ مُبْدِئُ اَىْ مُعِيْدُ.

وَ انْصُرْعَبْدَكَ وَ قَوّ اَصْحَابَهُ وَ صَبّرَهُمْ،
وَ افْتَحْ لَهُمْ مِنْ لَدُنْكَ سُلْطانًا نَصِيْرًا،

The narrator asked, “May I be sacrificed for you, have you not prayed for yourself?’ He (a.s.) replied, ‘I have prayed for the light of Ale Muhammad (a.s.), the first of them, and the avenger of their enemies by the command of Allah…”

Supplications During and After Prayers 89
I asked, “Whom are you praying for?’ He (a.s.) replied, “It was for al-Mahdi from the progeny of Muhammad.” Then he (a.s.) said,

بِاَبِْ الْمُنْتَدَحُ الْبَطْنِ، اَلْمَقْرُوْنُ الْحَاجِبَيْنِ،
اَحْمَشُ السّاقَيْنِ، بَعِيدُ مَا بَيْنَ الْمَنْكِبَيْنِ، اَسْمَرُ اللّوْنِ، يَعْتَوْرُهُ مَعَ سُمْرَتِهِ صُفْرَةٌ مِنْ سَهَرَ اللّيْلِ،
بِاَبِیْ مِنْ لَيْلَةِ يُرْعٰی النّجُوْمُ سَاجِدًا وَ رَاكِعًا.
بِاَبِیْ مَنْ لَ يَا خُذُهُ فِی الِ لَوْمَةُ لَئِمٍ، مِصْبَاحُ الدّجٰی. بِاَبِیْ الْقَائِمِ بِاَمْرِ الِ.
اَلْحَدِيْثُ.





12. His (a.t.f.s.) Supplication for the Forgiveness of his Shias’ Sins

اَللَّهُمَّ اِنَّ شِيْعَتَنَا خُلِقَتْ مِنْ شُعَاعِ اَنْوَارِنَا، وَ بَقِيَّةِ طِيْنَتِنَا، وَ قَدْ فَعَلُوا ذُنُوباً كَثِيْرَةً، اتَّكَالاً عَلىٰ حُبِّنَا وَ وِلَايَتِنَا. فَاِنْ كَانَتْ ذُنُوبُهُمْ بَيْنَكَ وَ بَيْنَهُمْ، وَ اصْفَحْ عَنْهُمْ، فَقَدْ رَضِيْنَا، وَ مَا كَانَ مِنْهَا فِيْمَا بَيْنَهُمْ فَأَصْلِحْ بَيْنَهُمْ، وَ قَاصِّ بِهَا عَنْ خُمْسِنَا، وَ اَدْخِلْهُمُ الْجَنَّةَ، وَ زَحْزِحْهُمْ عَنِ النَّارِ، وَ لَا تَجْمَعْ بَيْنَهُمْ وَ بَيْنَ اَعْدَائِنَا فِىْ سَخَطِكَ.


13. Supplication of the Tears
This supplication, recorded by Shaykh Kaf’ami (a.r.) in his book ‘Al-Balad al-Ameen’p333 is attributed to our master Saaheb al-Zamaan (a.t.f.s.).Bihar vol95 p378

اَللَّهُمَّ اِنِّيْ اَسْئَلُكَ يَا رَاحِمَ الْعَبَرَاتِ،

وَ يَا كَاشِفَ الْكُرُبَاتِ،
وَ يَا كَاشِفَ الزَّفَرَاتِ،
اَنْتَ الَّذِىْ تَقْشَعُ سَحَائِبَ الْمِحَنِ وَ قَدْ اَمْسَتْ ثِقَالاً،
وَ تَجْلُو ضَبَابَ الْفِتَنِ وَ قَدْ سَحَبَتْ اَذيَالاً،
وَ تَجْعَلُ ذَرْعَهَا هَشِيْماً،
وَ بُنْيَانَهَا هَدِيْماً،
وَ عِظَامَهَا رَمِيْماً،
وَ تَرُدُّ الْمَغْلُوبَ غَالِباً،
وَ الْمَطْلُوبَ طَالِباً،
وَ الْمَقْهُورَ قَاهِراً،
وَ الْمَقْدُورَ عَلَيْهِ قَادِراً،
فَكَمْ يَا اِلٰهِىْ مِنْ عَبْدٍ نَادَاكَ: رَبِّ اِنِّيْ مَغْلُوبٌ فَانْتَصِرْ،
فَفَتَحْتَ مِنْ نَصْرِكَ لَهُ اَبْوَابَ السَّمَاءِ بِمَاءٍ مُنْهَمِرٍ،
وَ فَجَّرْتَ لَهُ مِنْ عَوْنِكَ عُيُونًا،
فَالْتَقَى الْمَاءُ عَلىٰ اَمْرٍ قَدْ قُدِرَ،
وَ حَمَلْتَهُ مِنْ كِفَايَتِكَ عَلىٰ ذَاتِ اَلْوَ احٍ وَ دُسُرٍ. يَا مَنْ اِذَا وَلَجَ الْعَبْدُ فِىْ لَيَلٍ مِنْ حَيْرَتِهِ بَهِيْمٌ وَ لَمْ يَجِدْ لَهُ صَرِيْخاً يَصْرُخُهُ مِنْ وَلِيٍّ حَمِيْمٍ،
وَجَدَ مِنْ مَعُونَتِكَ صَرِيْخاً مُغِيْثاً،
وَ وَلِيّاً يَطْلُبُهُ حَثِيْثاً،
يُنْجِيْهِ مِنْ ضِيْقِ اَمْرِهِ وَ حَرَجِهِ،
ويُظْهِرُ لَهُ اَعْلَامَ فَرَجِهِ. اَللَّهُمَّ فَيَا مَنْ قُدْرَتُهُ قَاهِرَةٌ،
وَ نَقَمَاتُهُ لِكُلِّ جَبَّارٍ،
دَامِغَةٌ لِكُلِّ كَفُورٍ خَتَّارٍ،
اَسْأَلُكَ نَظْرَةً مِنْ نَظَرَاتِكَ رَحِيْمَةً،
تَجْلِىْ بِهَا عَنِّىْ ظُلْمَةً عَاكِفَةً مُقِيْمَةً،
مِنْ عَاهَةٍ جَفَّتْ مِنْهَا الضُّرُوعُ،
وَ تَلَفَتْ مِنْهَا الزُّرُوعُ،
وَ انْهَلَّتْ مِنْ مِنْ اَجْلِهَا الدُّمُوعُ،
وَ اشْتَمَلَ لَهَا عَلَى الْقُلُوبِ الْيَاسُ،
وَ جَرَتْ بِسَبَبِهَا الْاَنْفَاسُ. اَلٰهي فَحِفْظاً حِفْظاً لِغَرَائِزَ غَرْسُهَا وَ شُرْبُهَا بِيَدِ الرَّحْمَانِ،
وَ نَجَاتُهَا بِدُخُولِ الْجِنَانِ،
اَنْ تَكُونَ بِيَدِ الشَّيْطَانِ تُحَزُّ،
وَ بِفَأْسِهِ تُقْطَعُ وَ تُجَزُّ.
اِلٰهِىْ فَمَنْ اَوْلىٰ مِنْكَ بِأَنْ يَكُونَ عَنْ حَرِيْمِكَ دَافِعاً،
وَمَنْ اَجْدَرُ مِنْكَ بِاَنْ يَكُونَ عَنْ حِمَاكَ مَانِعاً. اِلٰهِىْ اِنَّ الْاَمْرَ قَدْ هَالَ فَهَوِّنْهُ،
وَ خَشُنَ فَأَلِنْهُ،
وَ اِنَّ الْقُلُوبَ كَاعَتْ فَطَمَّنْهَا،
وَ النَّفُوسَ ارْتَاعَتْ فَسَكِّنْهَا. اِلٰهِىْ اِلٰهِىْ تَدَارَكْ اَقْدَاماً زَلَّتْ،
وَ اَفْهَاهاً فِىْ مَهَامَةِ الْحَيْرَةِ ضَلَّتْ،
اِنْ رَأَتْ جَبْرَكَ عَلىْ كَسِيْرِهَا،
وَ لاِطْلَاقَكَ لِاَسِيْرِهَا،
وَ اِجَارَتَكَ لِمُسْتَجِيْرِهَا،
اَجْحَفَ الضُّرُ بِالْمَضْرُورِ،
وَ لَبّٰى دَاعِيْهِ بِالْوَيْلِ وَ الثُّبُورِ. فَهَلْ تَدَعُهُ يَا مَولَايَ فَرِيْسَةَ الْبَلَاءِ وَ هُوَ لَكَ رَاجٍ،
اَمْ هَلْ يَخُوضُ لُجَّةَ الْغَمَّاءِ وَ هُوَ اِلَيْكَ لَاجٍ. مَوْلَايَ اِنْ كُنْتُ لاَ اَشُقُّ عَلىٰ نَفْسِىْ فَي التُّقٰى،
وَ لاَ اَبْلُغُ فِىْ حَمْلِ اَعْبَاءِ الطَّاعَةِ مَبْلَغَ الرَّضَا،
وَ لاَ اَنْتَظِمُ فِىْ سِلْكِ قَوْمٍ رَفَضُوا الدُّنْيَا.
فَهُمْ خُمْصُ الْبُطُونِ مِنَ الطَّوىٰ،
ذُبْلُ الشِّفَاهِ مِنَ الظَّمَا،
عُمْشُ الْعُيُونِ مِنَ الْبُكَاءِ،
بَلْ اَتَيْتُكَ بِضَعْفٍ مِنَ الْعَمَلِ،
وَ ظَهْرٍ ثَقِيْلٍ بِالْخَطَايَا وَ الزَّلَلِ،
وَ نَفْسٍ لِلرَّاحَةِ مُعْتَادَةٌ،
وَ لِدَوَاعِي الشَّرَّ مُنْقَادَةٌ. اَفَمَا يَكْفِيْنِىْ يَا رَبِّ وَ سِيْلَةً اِلَيْكَ،
وَ ذَرِيْعَةً لَدَيْكَ،
اَنَّنِىْ لِأَوْلِيَاءِ دِيْنِكَ مُوَالٍ،
وَ فِىْ مَحَبَّتِهِمْ مُغَالٍ،
وَ لِجِلْبَابِ الْبَلَاءِ فِيْهِمْ لاَبِسٌ،
وَ لِكِتَابِ تَحَمُّلِ الْعَنَاءِ بِهِمْ دَارِسٌ. اَمَا يَكْفِيْنِىْ اَنْ اَرُوحَ فِيْهِمْ مَظْلُوماً،
وَ اَغْدُو مَكْظُوماً،
وَ اَقْضِيْ بَعْدَ هُمُومٍ هُمُوماً،
وَ بَعْدَ وُجُوْمٍ وُجُوماً. اَمَا عِنْدَكَ يَا مَوْلَايَ بِهٰذِهِ حُرْمَةٌ لاَ تَضِيْعُ،
وَ ذِمَّةٌ بِاَدَانَاهَا يُقْتَنَعُ،
فَلِمَ لاَ تَمْنَعُنِىْ يَا رَبِّ وَ هَا اَنَا ذَا غَرِيْقٌ،
وَ تَدَعُنِىْ هٰكَذَا وَ اَنَا بِنَارِ عَدُوِّكَ حَرِيْقٌ.
مَوْلَايَ اَتَجْعَلُ اَوْلِيَائَكَ لِاَعْدَائِكَ طَرَائِدَ،
وَ لِمَكْرِهِمْ مَصَائِدَ،
وَ تُقَلِّدُهُمْ مِنْ خَسْفِهِمْ قَلَائِدَ،
وَ اَنْتَ مَالِكُ نُفُوسِهِمْ لَوْ قَبَضْتَهَا جَمَدُوا،
وَ فِىْ قَبْضَتِكَ مَوَادُّ اَنْفَاسِهِمْ لَوْ قَطَعْتَهَا خَمَدُوا. فَمَايَمْنَعُكَ يَا رَبِّ اَنْ تَكْشِفَ بَأْسَهُمْ،
وَ تَنْزِعَ عَنْهُمْ فِىْ حِفْظِكَ لِبَاسَهُمْ،
وَ تُعَرِّيْهِمْ مِنْ سَلَامَةٍ بِهَا فِىْ اَرْضِكَ يَسْرَحُونَ،
وَ فِىْ مَيْدَانِ الْبَغْيِ عَلىٰ عِبَادِكَ يَمْرَحُونَ.
اِلٰهي اَدْرِكْنِىْ وَ لَمَّا يُدْرِكْنِي الْغَرَقُ،
وَ تَدَارَكْنِىْ وَ لَمَّا غَيَّبَ شَمْسِيَ الشَّفَقُ. اِلٰهِىْ كَمْ مِنْ خَائِفٍ اِلْتَجَأَ اِلىٰ سُلْطَانٍ فَآبَ عَنْهُ مَحْفُوفاً بِاَمْنٍ وَ اَمَانٍ،
اَفَاَقْصُدُ اَعْظَمَ مِنْ سُلْطَانِكَ سُلْطَانًا،
اَمْ اَوْسَعَ مِنْ اِحْسَانِكَ اِحْسَانًا،
اَمْ اَكْثَرَ مِنَ اقْتِدَارِكَ اِقْتِدَاراً،
اَمْ اَكْرَمَ مِنِ انْتِصَارِكَ انْتِصَاراً. مَا عُذْرِيْ يَا اِلٰهِىْ اِذَا حَرِمْتَ مِنْ حُسْنِ الْكِفَايَةِ سَائِلَكَ،
اَنْتَ الَّذِىْ لاَ يُخَيَّبُ اَمِلُكَ،
وَ لاَ يُرَدُّ سَائِلُكَ. اِلٰهِىْ اِلٰهِىْ اَيْنَ رَحْمَتُكَ الَّتِىْ هِيَ نُصْرَةُ الْمُسْتَضْعَفِيْنَ مِنَ الْاَنَامِ،
وَ اَيْنَ اَيْنَ كِفَايَتُكَ الَّتِىْ هِيَ جُنَّةُ الْمُسْتَهْدَفِيْنَ لِجَوْرِ الْاَيَّامِ،

اِنّي مَسَّنِيَ الضُّرُّ،
وَ اَنْتَ اَرْحَمُ الرَّاحِمِيْنَ. مَوْلَايَ تَرىٰ تَحَيُّرِيْ فِىْ اَمْرِيْ،
وَ انْطِوَايَ عَلىٰ حُرْقَةِ قَلْبي وَ حَرَارَةِ صَدْرِيْ،
فَجُدْ لِىْ يَا رَبِّ بِمَا اَنْتَ اَهْلُهُ فَرَجاً وَ مَخْرَجاً،
وَ يَسِّرْ لِىْ نَحْوَ الْيُسْرِ مَنْهَجاً.
وَ اجْعَلْ مَنْ يَنْصِبُ الْحِبَالَةَ لِىْ لِيَصْرَعَنِىْ بِهَا صَرِيْعاً فِيْمَا مَكَرَ،
وَ مَنْ يَحْفِرُ لِيَ الْبِئْرَ لِيُوقِعَنِىْ فِيْمَا حَفَرَ،
وَ اصْرِفْ عَنِّىْ مِنْ شَرِّهِ وَ مَكْرِهِ،
وَ فَسَادِهِ وَ ضُرِّهِ مَاتَصْرِفُهُ عَنِ الْقَوْمِ الْمُتَّقِيْنَ. اِلٰهِىْ عَبْدُكَ عَبْدُكَ،
اَجِبْ دَعْوَتَهُ،
وَ ضَعِيْفُكَ ضَعِيْفُكَ فَرِّجْ غُمَّتَهُ،

وَ تَقَلَّصَ عَنْهُ كُلُّ ظِلٍّ اِلاَّ ظِلُّكَ.
مَوْلَايَ دَعْوَتِىْ هٰذِهِ،
اِنْ رَدَدْتُهَا اَيْنَ تُصَادِفُ مَوْضِعَ الْاِجَابَةِ،
وَ مَخْيَلَتِىْ هٰذِهِ اِنْ كَذَبْتَهَا اَيْنَ تُلَاقِىْ مَوْضِعَ الْاِصَابَةِ،
فَلَا تَرُدَّ عَنْ بَابِكَ مَنْ لاَ يَعْرِفُ غَيْرَهُ بَاباً،
وَ لاَ تَمْنَعْ دُونَ جَنَابِكَ مَنْ لاَ يَعْرِفُ سِوَاهُ جَنَاباً. اِلٰهِىْ اِنَّ وَجْهاً اِلَيْكَ بِرَغبَتِهِ تَوَجَّهَ،
فَالرَّاغِبُ خَلِيْقٌ بِاَنْ لاَ تُخَيِّبَهُ،

جَدِيْرٌ اَنْ يَفُوزَ السَّائِلُ بِمُرَادِهِ وَ يَظْفَرَ. هٰذَا يَا اِلٰهِىْ تَعْفِيْرُ خَدِّيْ فِىْ مَسْأَلَتِكَ وَ جِدِّيْ،
فَلَقِّ رَغَبَاتي بِرَحْمَتِكَ قَبُولاً،

14. Supplication of the Regulator of Affairs
Sayyed Ali Khan Shirazi in his book, ‘Al-Kalemah al-Tayyeb’ has mentioned this supplication for deliverance from difficulties.

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ اَنْتَ اللهُ الَّذِىْ لاَ اِلٰهَ اِلاَّ اَنْتَ،
مُبْدِئُ الْخَلْقِ وَ مُعِيْدُهُمْ،
وَ اَنْتَ اللهُ الَّذِىْ لاَ اِلٰهَ اِلاَّانْتَ،
مُدَبَّرُ الْاُمُورِ وَ بَاعِثُ مَنْ فِىْ الْقُبُورِ،
وَ اَنْتَ اللهُ الَّذِىْ لاَ اِلٰهَ اِلاَّ اَنْتَ الْقَابِضُ الْبَاسِطُ،
وَ اَنْتَ اللهُ الَّذِىْ لاَ اِلٰهَ اِلاَّ اَنْتَ،
وَارِثُ الْاَرْضِ وَ مَنْ عَلَيْهَا. اَسْئَلُكَ بِاسْمِكَ الَّذِىْ اِذَا دُعِيْتَ بِهِ اَجَبْتَ،
وَ اِذَا سُئِلْتَ بِهِ اَعْطَيْتَ،
وَ اَسْئَلُكَ بِحَقِّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ،
وَ بِحَقِّهِمُ الَّذِىْ اَوْجَبْتَهُ عَلىٰ نَفْسِكَ،
اَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اِنْ تَقْضِيَ لِىْ حَاجَتِىْ السَّاعَةِ السَّاعَةِ،
يَا سَيَّدَاهُ يَا مَوْلَاهُ يَا غِيَاثَاهُ. اَسْئَلُكَ بِكُلِّ اسْمٍ سَمَّيْتَهُ بِهِ نَفْسَكَ،
وَ اسْتَأْثَرْتَ بِهِ فِىْ عِلْمِ الْغَيْبِ عِنْدَكَ،
اَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلٰى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَنْ تُعَجَّلَ خَلَاصَنَا مِنج هٰذِهِ الشِّدَّةِ،
يَا مُقَلِّبَ الْقُلُوبِ وَ الْاَبْصَارِ،
يَا سَمِيْعَ الدُّعَاءِ،
اِنَّكَ عَلىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ،
بِرَحْمَتِكَ يَا اَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِيْنَ.

17. His (a.t.f.s.) Supplication for Salvation from Difficulties and Sorrows
يَا نُورَ النُّوْرِ،
يَا مُدَبِّرَ الْاُمُورِ،
يَا بَاعِثَ مَنْ فِىْ الْقُبُورِ،
صَلِّ عَلىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ،
وَ اجْعَلْ لِىْ وَ لِشِيْعَتِىْ مِنَ الضِّيْقِ فَرَجاً وَ مِنَ الْهَمِّ مَخرَجاً،
وَ اَوْسِعْ لَنَا الْمَنْهَجَ،
وَ اَطْلِقْ لَنَا مِنْ عِنْدِكَ مَا يُفَرِّجُ،
وَ افْعَلْ بِنَا مَا اَنْتَ اَهْلُهُ يَا كَرِيْمُ.

يَا مَنْ اِذَا تَضَايَقَتِ الْاُمُوْرُ فَتَحَ لَنَا بَابًا لَمْ تَذْهَبْ اِلَيْهِ الْاَوْهَامُ،
فَصَلِّ عَلٰى مُحَمَّدٍ وَاٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ،
وَافْتَحْ لِاُمُوْرِيْ الْمُتَضَايِقَةِ بَابًا لَمْ يَذْهَبْ اِلَيْهِ وَهْمٌ يَا اَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِيْنَ۔
O' He when the affairs become difficult He open the ways we didn't imagined, so send Your blessing to Muhammad and on the family of Muhammad and open for me ways out from my difficulties that I didn't imagined, O' the Most Merciful of the merciful.[1]

He (may Allah have mercy on him) said: you recite it after every day compulsory prayers and at any other time, it suffices you in your important requests and makes you reach your goal.

[2]- At Tuh’fatur Razawiyyah: 114

This preservation of our master Al-Qa'im (peace be on him) was narrated by Sayyid Al-Ajal in Mahju Dda'waah and Sheikh Al-Kafa'ami in Misbaah:
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ
يَا مَالِكَ الرِّقَابِ،
وَهَازِمَ الْاَحْزَابِ،
يَا مُفَتِّحَ الْاَبْوَابِ،
يَا مُسَبِّبَ الْاَسْبَابِ،
سَبِّبْ لَنَا سَبَبًا لَانَسْتَطِيْعُ لَهُ طَلَبًا،
بِحَقِّ لَاۤ اِلٰهَ اِلَّا اللهُ،
مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَوَاتُ اللهِ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهِ اَجْمَعِيْنَ۔

Sayyid Ali bn Taaus in Mahju Dda'waah said: we have narrated through the chain of Muhammad bn Ahmad bn Ibrahim Al-Ja'afi popularly known as Saaban. The occultation of Imam Al-Mahdi peace be on him was mentioned there in, I said: what shall Your followers do? He said:
Be aware of supplication and expectation of relief, verily knowledge shall appear to you, then you give praise to God and hold fast with what appeared to you I said: with what shall we supplicates? He said: recite the following:
اَللّٰهُمَّ اَنْتَ عَرَّفْتَنِيْ نَفْسَكَ،
وَعَرَّفْتَنِيْ رَسُوْلَكَ،
وَعَرَّفْتَنِيْ مَلَاۤئِكَتَكَ وَعَرَّفْتَنِيْ نَبِيَّكَ،
وَعَرَّفْتَنِيْ وُلَاةَ اَمْرِكَ۔ اَللّٰهُمَّ لَا اٰخِذَ اِلَّا مَا اَعْطَيْتَ،
وَلَا وَاقِيَ اِلَّا مَا وَقَيْتَ۔
O' Allah! You have cognized Yourself to me and have defined Your Messenger to me, You have defined Your Angels to me, You have defined Your Prophets to me and You have defined to me the leaders of Your affairs.

اَللّٰهُمَّ لَاتُغَيِّبْنِيْ عَنْ مَنَازِلِ اَوْلِيَاۤئِكَ،
وَلَاتُزِغْ قَلْبِيْ بَعْدَ اِذْ هَدَيْتَنِيْ۔اَللّٰهُمَّ اهْدِنِيْ لِوِلَايَةِ مَنِ افْتَرَضْتَ طَاعَتَهُ۔
O' Allah! No one shall take except from what You have given, no one is rescued except those You have preserved. O' Allah! Don' t deprive me from the rank of Your intimate friends, and don't change my mind after being guided. O' Allah! Guide me to the guardianship of those you have make incumbent for me to follow.1



SUPPLICATION APPROPRIATE FOR THE TIME OF OCCULTATION
The honorable Sayyid Ali bin Taoos (R.A.) states: I witness someone in my dream who taught me a supplication with regard to the time of occultation. It should be recited as follows:
يا مَنْ فَضَّلَ آلَ إِبْراهيمَ وَآلَ إِسْرائيلَ عَلَى الْعالَمينَ بِاخْتِيارِهِ ، وَأَظْهَرَ في مَلَكُوتِ السَّماواتِ وَالْأَرْضِ عِزَّةَ اقْتِدارِهِ ، وَأَوْدَعَ مُحَمَّداً صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَأَهْلَ بَيْتِهِ غَرائِبَ أَسْرارِهِ ، [صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ] ، وَاجْعَلْني مِنْ أَعْوانِ حُجَّتِكَ عَلى عِبادِكَ وَأَنْصارِهِ .
“O He who promoted the Progeny of Ibrahim and the Progeny of Israel over the worlds through His choice, and made evident the dignity of their kingdom over the kingdoms of heavens and earth, and made Mohammad (peace be upon him and his Progeny) and his household the trustees of his astonishing secrets, (bless Mohammad and his Progeny), and regard us among the supporters and devotees of Your proof over Your slaves”.[1]

[1] Muhaj ud Da’waat: p. 396; Biharul Anwaar: 95/336; An Najmus Saqib: 2/482

SUPPLICATION FOR RESCUE FROM AFFLICTIONS
It was written in the book"Silaahul Mu'mineen".
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحيمِ أَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ ، وَعَجِّلْ فَرَجَهُمْ ، ( يا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمينَ هفت مرتبه تكرار شود).
أَللَّهُمَّ عُمَّ أَعْداءَ آلِ نَبِيِّكَ وَظالِميهِمْ وَأَعْداءَ شيعَتِهِمْ ، وَأَعْداءَ مَواليهِمْ بِالشَّرِّ عَمّاً ، وَطُمَّهُمْ بِالشَّرِّ طَمّاً ، وَاطْرُقْهُمْ بِلَيْلَةٍ لا اُخْتَ لَها ، وَساعَةٍ لامَنْجى مِنْها ، وَانْتَقِمْ مِنْهُمُ انْتِقاماً عاجِلاً ، وَأَحْرِقْ قُلُوبَهُمْ بِنارِ غَضَبِكَ .
أَللَّهُمَّ شَتِّتْ شَمْلَهُمْ ، وَفَرِّقْ جَمْعَهُمْ، وَقَلِّبْ تَدْبيرَهُمْ ، وَنَكِّسْ أَعْلامَهُمْ ، وَخَرِّبْ بُنْيانَهُمْ ، وَقَرِّبْ آجالَهُمْ ، وَأَلْقِ بَأْسَهُمْ بَيْنَهُمْ ، وَاجْعَلْنا مِنْ بَيْنِهِمْ سالِمينَ ، وَخُذْهُمْ أَخْذَ عَزيزٍ مُقْتَدِرٍ .
أَللَّهُمَّ أَلْقِ الْأَوْجاعَ وَالْأَسْقامَ في أَبْدانِهِمْ، وَضَيِّقْ مَسالِكَهُمْ ، وَاسْلُبْهُمْ مَمالِكَهُمْ، وَحَيِّرْهُمْ في سُبُلِهِمْ ، وَاقْطَعْ عَنْهُمُ الْمَدَدَ ، وَانْقُصْ مِنْهُمُ الْعَدَدَ.
أَللَّهُمَّ وَاحْفَظْ مَوالِيَ آلِ بَيْتِ نَبِيِّكَ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلامُ مِنْ شُرُورِهِمْ ، وَسَلِّمْهُمْ مِنْ مَكْرِهِمْ ، وَخَدْعِهِمْ وَضُرِّهِمْ ، وَانْصُرْهُمْ عَلَيْهِمْ بِنَصْرِكَ ، وَاجْمَعْ كَلِمَتَهُمْ ، وَأَلِّفْ جَمْعَهُمْ ، وَدَبِّرْ أَمْرَهُمْ . وَعَرِّفْهُمْ ما يَجْهَلُونَ ، وَعَلِّمْهُمْ ما لايَعْلَمُونَ ، وَبَصِّرْهُمْ ما لايُبْصِرُونَ ، وَأَعْلِ كَلِمَتَهُمْ ، وَاجْعَلْهَا الْعُلْيا ، وَاجْعَلْ كَلِمَةَ الْأَعْداءِ السُّفْلى .
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. O' Allah! Bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad and hasten their relief (O' the most Merciful of the merciful (7) seven times).
O' Allah encompass the enemies of the families of Your Prophet and those that oppressed them and the enemies of their followers and enemies of those that gave allegiance to them with entire evil, and overflow them with evil, and silent them with unbearable night and with unsaved time and quickly retaliate from them and burn their heart with the wrath of Your Hell fire.
O' Allah! Scattered their unity, disunite their gatherings, change their plans, turn their banners upside down, destroy their homes and make their life span very near, let their afflictions between themselves,
and let us be free from them and held them with intensive responsibility.
O' Allah! Impose sufferings and illness on their body and tighten their means of sustenance and deprive them of their properties, and distract them of their ways and cut Your assistance from them and reduce their population.
O' Allah! Protect the followers of the household of Your Prophet peace be on them from their evils, and free them from their plots, deceits and afflictions. Help them with Your Grace and unite their words and their gatherings, administer their affairs and teach them what is unknown to them, let them see what is unseen to them, elevate their words and make it very exalted and make very low the words of the enemies.[1]

SUPPLICATION OF IMAM JAWAD (A.S.)FOR THE END OF OPPRESSION FROM THE WORLD
The honorable Sayyid Ali bin Taoos narrates this supplication from our Master, Imam Jawad (A.S.), in his book ‘Muhaj ud Da’waat’ in the following manner:
أَللَّهُمَّ إِنَّ ظُلْمَ عِبادِكَ قَدْ تَمَكَّنَ في بِلادِكَ حَتَّى أَماتَ الْعَدْلَ ، وَقَطَعَ السُّبُلَ، وَمَحَقَ الْحَقَّ، وَأَبْطَلَ الصِّدْقَ، وَأَخْفَى الْبِرَّ، وَأَظْهَرَ الشَّرَّ ، وَأَخْمَدَ التَّقْوى ، وَأَزالَ الْهُدى ، وَأَزاحَ الْخَيْرَ ، وَأَثْبَتَ الضَّيْرَ ، وَأَنْمَى الْفَسادَ ، وَقَوَّى الْعِنادَ ، وَبَسَطَ الْجَوْرَ ، وَعَدَى الطَّوْرَ . أَللَّهُمَّ يا رَبِّ لايَكْشِفُ ذلِكَ إِلّا سُلْطانُكَ ، وَلا يُجيرُ مِنْهُ إِلّاَ امْتِنانُكَ.
أَللَّهُمَّ رَبِّ فَابْتُرِ الظُّلْمَ ، وَبُثَّ حِبالَ الْغَشْمِ ، وَأَخْمِدْ سُوقَ الْمُنْكَرِ ، وَأَعِزَّ مَنْ عَنْهُ يَنْزَجِرُ ، وَاحْصُدْ شافَةَ أَهْلِ الْجَوْرِ ، وَأَلْبِسْهُمُ الْحَوْرَ بَعْدَ الْكَوْرِ ، وَعَجِّلِ اللَّهُمَّ إِلَيْهِمُ الْبَياتَ ، وَأَنْزِلْ عَلَيْهِمُ الْمُثَلاتِ ، وَأَمِتْ حَياةَ الْمُنْكَرِ لِيُؤْمَنَ الْمَخُوفُ ، وَيَسْكُنَ الْمَلْهُوفُ ، وَيَشْبَعَ الْجائِعُ ، وَيَحْفَظَ الضَّائِعُ ، وَيَأْوَى الطَّريدُ ، وَيَعُودَ الشَّريدُ ، وَيُغْنَى الْفَقيرُ ، وَيُجارَ الْمُسْتَجيرُ ، وَيُوَقَّرَ الْكَبيرُ ، وَيُرْحَمَ الصَّغيرُ ، وَيُعَزَّ الْمَظْلُومُ ، وَيُذَلَّ الظَّالِمُ ، وَيُفَرَّجَ الْمَغْمُومُ ، وَتَنْفَرِجَ الْغَمَّاءُ ، وَتَسْكُنَ الدَّهْماءُ ، وَيَمُوتَ الْإِخْتِلافُ ، وَيَعْلُوَ الْعِلْمُ ، وَيَشْمَلَ السِّلْمُ ، وَيُجْمَعَ الشَّتاتُ ، وَيَقْوَى الْإيمانُ ، وَيُتْلَى الْقُرْآنُ ، إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ الدَّيَّانُ الْمُنْعِمُ الْمَنَّانُ .
“O’ Allah, indeed the oppression of Your slaves has strengthened and established on Your lands resulting in the removal of justice, and the disconnection from the paths of guidance, and the evasion of the right, and the abandonment of the truth, and the concealment of the good, and the evidence of the evil, and the extinguishment of piety, and the removal of guidance, and the end of benefits and nobility, and the firmament of deviation from truth, and the growth of corruption, and the strengthening of hostility, and the spreading of oppression, and the trespassing of boundaries. O’ Allah, O’ my Lord, none can end it but Your power and dominance, none can deliver men from it except for Your grace and favor. O’ Allah, my Lord, uproot the transgression, and rip the ropes of oppression into pieces, and make the markets of mischief and wrongdoings stagnant, and dignify those who dislike them, and pull the foundations of the tyrants from its root, and make them face loss and defeat after their luxuries, and hasten O’ Allah in attacking them while they unaware, and send Your wrath upon them, and put the evildoers and corrupted ones to death, so that those who fear them feel at peace, and the sorrowful and saddened men feel relieved, and the hungry is filled, and those things that are on the verge of destruction are saved, and the evaders gain shelter, and the vagrants return, and the poor become rich, and the seekers of peace attain it, and the old men are honored, and the infants are pitied, and the oppressed gain dignity, and the oppressors become humiliated, and the sorrowful are relieved, and the difficulties are solved, and the mutinies are calmed, and the differences end, and knowledge gains elevation, and peace and harmony becomes widespread, and conflicts and diversities turn into unity, and faith is strengthened, and the Holy Qur’an is recited, indeed You are the remunerator, the Sustainer, and the Graceful.

SUPPLICATION FOR PROTECTION FROM DAJJAL’S EVIL It has been narrated from Ma’aaz bin Jabal that he said: One day, the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H.) sent me to Abdullah bin Salaam while his holiness was surrounded by a group of his companions. Abullah bin Salaam came near the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H.), his holiness said:
“O’ Abdullah, inform me about those ten words which were taught by Allah (S.W.T.) to Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) on the day when he was to be thrown in fire. Have you found those words written in your Torah?”
Abdullah said: “O’ Messenger of Allah, my parents be sacrificed upon you, has anything about those ten words revealed upon you? Certainly I have seen the reward of reciting those them in Torah but haven’t come across those ten supplications which have the ‘Ism- e-Aazam’ of Allah in each one of them.”
Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Did Allah teach those words to Prophet Musa (A.S.)?”
Abdullah said: “Allah did not teach them to anyone except Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him).”
Holy Prophet said: “What have you seen regarding its reward in Torah”?
Abdullah said: O’ Allah’s Messenger, who has the power to attain such a reward”? I saw in Torah that it was written:
There is no slave upon whom the Lord has bestowed His grace by placing these words in his heart but that his eyes have been illuminated and certainty has been placed in his heart, and his chest is broadened for the acceptance of faith, and a light is allotted for him which rises from where he sits towards the sky; and the Lord praises him twice a day before the angels and grants wisdom in his tongue and blesses him with the memorization of the book, even though he might not be greedy for this reward; and he makes him a jurisprudent and scholar of the religion, and places his love in the hearts of His slaves, and protects him from the punishments of the grave, and the schemes of Dajjal, and from the great fear of the Day of Resurrection.
And God may resurrect him among the group of martyrs; honor him and bless him with the dignity and greatness which is has been bestowed by Him upon his Prophets, and such a person will remain fearless on the day when all humans will be filled with fear, and they will not be sorrowful on the day when all the people will be sorrowful, and his name will be written as ‘Siddeeq’ (the truthful) near Allah, and he will resurrect on the Day of Resurrection while his heart will be peaceful and satisfied, and he will be under the shadow of the dignified men along with Prophet Ibrahim (A.S.).
By the grace of this supplication, a worshipper will be bestowed with whatever he desires from God; and if he adjures God, God will act upon his vow, and he will be situated on the majestic position (heaven) in the vicinity of the Merciful God, and all the rewards of the martyrs from the beginning of world’s creation will be written for him.
Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H.) asked: “What is meant by the majestic position?”
Abdullah says: “It means the Eden gardens and it is the place of the Almighty God and His Holy Threshold”.
Ibn e Salaam said: “O Messenger of Allah, teach us that supplication and be gracious upon us just as God has bestowed His grace upon you”.
Prophet (P.B.U.H.) said: “Prostrate before the God Almighty”.
Ma’aaz bin Jabal said: All of them prostrated, and when they lifted their heads from prostration, the holy Prophet said: “recite:
يا اَللَّهُ يا اَللَّهُ يا اَللَّهُ ، أَنْتَ الْمَرْهُوبُ مِنْكَ جَميعُ [خَلْقِكَ] ، يا نُورَ النُّورِ ، أَنْتَ الَّذِي احْتَجَبْتَ دُونَ خَلْقِكَ فَلاتُدْرِكُ نُورَكَ نُورٌ ، يا اَللَّهُ يا اَللَّهُ يا اَللَّهُ ، أَنْتَ الرَّفيعُ الَّذِي ارْتَفَعْتَ فَوْقَ عَرْشِكَ مِنْ فَوْقِ سَمائِكَ ، فَلايَصِفُ عَظَمَتَكَ أَحَدٌ مِنْ خَلْقِكَ ، يا نُورَ النُّورِ قَدِ اسْتَنارَ بِنُورِكَ أَهْلُ سَمائِكَ ، وَاسْتَضاءَ بِضَوْئِكَ أَهْلُ أَرْضِكَ .
يا اَللَّهُ يا اَللَّهُ يا اَللَّهُ ، أَنْتَ الَّذي لا إِلهَ غَيْرُكَ ، تَعالَيْتَ عَنْ أَنْ يَكُونَ لَكَ شَريكٌ ، وَتَعَظَّمْتَ عَنْ أَنْ يَكُونَ لَكَ وَلَدٌ ، وَتَكَرَّمْتَ عَنْ أَنْ يَكُونَ لَكَ شَبيهٌ ، وَتَجَبَّرْتَ عَنْ أَنْ يَكُونَ لَكَ ضِدٌّ ، فَأَنْتَ اللَّهُ الْمَحْمُودُ بِكُلِّ لِسانٍ ، وَأَنْتَ الْمَعْبُودُ في كُلِّ مَكانٍ ، وَأَنْتَ الْمَذْكُورُ في كُلِّ أَوانٍ وَزَمانٍ ، يا نُورَ النُّورِ ، كُلُّ نُورٍ خامِدٌ لِنُورِكَ ، يا مَليكَ كُلِّ مَليكٍ ، يَفْنى غَيْرُكَ يا دائِمُ ، كُلُّ حَيٍّ يَمُوتُ غَيْرُكَ .

يا مَنْ أَظْهَرَ الْجَميلَ ، وَسَتَرَ الْقَبيحَ ، يا مَنْ لَمْ يُؤاخِذْ بِالْجَريرَةِ ، وَلَمْ يَهْتِكِ السِّتْرَ ، يا عَظيمَ الْعَفْوِ ، يا حَسَنَ التَّجاوُزِ ، يا واسِعَ الْمَغْفِرَةِ ، يا باسِطَ الْيَدَيْنِ بِالرَّحْمَةِ ، يا صاحِبَ كُلِّ نَجْوى ، وَيا مُنْتَهى كُلِّ شَكْوى .

“O’ Allah, O’ Allah, O’ Allah, You are the one whom all the creations fear, O’ light of the light, You are the one who is hidden from its creation such that even light cannot get access to Your light, O’ Allah, O’ Allah, O’ Allah, You are the mighty one who has elevated upon His throne above the heaven, Your grandness and glory cannot be described by anyone from the creations, O’ Light of the Light, certainly the people of the heavens illuminated with Your light, and the people of earth are shining with the beam of Your light, O’ Allah, O’ Allah, O’ Allah, You are the one save whom there is no God, You are mightier than being ascribed a partner with You, and greater than being ascribed a son for You, and Glorified to have anyone alike You, and Dignified to have an opponent for You, thus You are Allah, the Praised one by all tongues, and You are worshipped at all places, and You are remembered at all times and moments, O’ Light of the light, all the lights switch off in the presence of Your light, O’ Kings of all Kings, save You everything will be destroyed, O’ Eternal, All living beings will die except You, O’ Allah, O’ Allah, O’ Allah, O’ Beneficent, O’ Merciful, have mercy upon me with a mercy that puts off the fire of Your wrath and anger, and separates me from Your Punishment, and provides me with the glory and good-fortune from Your threshold, and place us in the house where Your noble servants reside, O’ the most Beneficent, O’ He who makes beauty apparent, and conceals the unpleasant, O’ He who does not punish His servants for their sins, and does not break their veil of honor, O’ great forgiver, O’ best Pardoner, O’ He who absolves widely, O’ He who grants mercy with extended hands, O’ knower of all whisperings, O’ He upon whom the judgment of all complaints end, O’ Master of great kindness, O’ Master of great generosity, O’ He who granted His servants with bounties before they deserved it, O’ My Lord, O’ My Lord, O’ Master, O’ Hope, O’ Final Desire, I ask You O’ Allah, O’ Allah, O’ Allah, do not dispose my body in the hellfire.”
Ibn e Salaam asked: “O’ Messenger of Allah, what is the reward of he who recites these verses”?
His holiness said: “Alas! Alas! It is not possible to write down its rewards. If the angles of the seven heavens and earth come together and wish to describe it till the day of Resurrection, they would fail to mention even one part out of the thousand parts of its reward.
Then Prophet (P.B.U.H.) stated numerous rewards and attributes of these words which cannot be mentioned here due to the conciseness of this book and conclude this discussion here. [1]

THE NARRATED SUPPLICATION FROM HIM (peace be on him) FOR RESCUE FROM NARROWNESS AND DIFFICULTIES
It was said in Al-Kalamu Ttayyib: I have seen the hand writing of some of our companions among the pious and trustworthy ones: I heard in Rajab in the year 1093 A.H. from a brother in Islam, the maid of Suduq who has obtained perfection in humanity and holy attributes, he is by name Al-Ameer Ismail bn Husein beek bn ali bn Suleiman Al-Jaabiri Al-Ansari (may Allah brighten his proves) saying: I heard Sheikh Hajj Ali Al-Makki saying: I was afflicted with narrowness and difficulties and I fear the destruction of myself, later I came across a wrapped supplication in my pocket that was not given to me by any one, I was then surprise and became confused, after that I saw a pious man in my dream saying:I have given the supplication to you, so offer it you will be saved from your narrowness and difficulties, though it was not obvious to me who speaks to me in my dream, the scene that increases my surprise. Another time I saw the awaiting proof (peace be on him) and said to me: offer the supplication I have given it to you and you should teach those that are in need of it.
Consequently, I have implemented it several times and have seen a quick acceptance, then the supplication get out of my hand for some times and I seriously regret of its lost by seeking pardon from Allah for my bad deeds, later an unknown person cane to me telling me that the supplication fall from me in certain place, and it did not cross my mind to go to such place, I took my supplication and observe a thanksgiving prostration to Allah, the supplication is as follows:
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحيمِ
رَبِّ أَسْئَلُكَ مَدَداً رُوحانِيّاً تَقْوى بِهِ قُوايَ الْكُلِّيَّةُ وَالْجُزْئِيَّةُ ، حَتَّى أَقْهَرَ بِمَبادي نَفْسي كُلَّ نَفْسٍ قاهِرَةٍ ، فَتَنْقَبِضَ لي إِشارَةُ دَقائِقِها ، اِنْقِباضاً تَسْقُطُ بِهِ قُويها ، حَتَّى لايَبْقى فِي الْكَوْنِ ذُو رُوحٍ إِلّا وَنارُ قَهْري قَدْ أَحْرَقَتْ ظُهُورَهُ .
يا شَديدُ ، يا شَديدُ ، يا ذَا الْبَطْشِ الشَّديدِ ، يا قاهِرُ يا قَهَّارُ ، أَسْئَلُكَ بِما أَوْدَعْتَهُ عِزْرائيلَ مِنْ أَسْمائِكَ الْقَهْرِيَّةِ ، فَانْفَعَلَتْ لَهُ النُّفُوسُ بِالْقَهْرِ ، أَنْ تُودِعَني هذَا السِّرَّ في هذِهِ السَّاعَةِ ، حَتَّى اُ لَيِّنَ بِهِ كُلَّ صَعْبٍ ، وَاُذَلِّلَ بِهِ كُلَّ مَنيعٍ ، بِقُوَّتِكَ يا ذَا الْقُوَّةِ الْمَتينِ .

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
O' my Lord; I requested spiritual auxiliaries from You that shall strengthen my general and sectional power till I subdued with my fundamental self and every despotic souls and depressed all its movement till all its power drops and never allow any despotic on Earth until is burnt with the fire of my subjugation.
O' the powerful, O' the powerful, O' He who possess terrible assault, the one who subdue, O' He who subdued. I requested from You what You have deposited among Your forcible names that all souls subdued to, to bestowed me with this mysteries at this very time, till all difficulties are made easy and to surmount all impenetrable by Your strength, O' He who possess substantial strength.
You recite this supplication (3) three times early dawn, if possible (3) three times in the morning and (3) three times in the evening time. If the situation persist the reader should recite the following thirty times:
يا رَحْمانُ يا رَحيمُ ، يا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمينَ ، أَسْئَلُكَ اللُّطْفَ بِما جَرَتْ بِهِ الْمَقاديرُ .

O' the Beneficent, O' the Merciful, O' the Most Merciful of the merciful, I requested lenience from You which goes through its measures.[1]

SUPPLICATION FOR THE RELIEF ON THE DAY OF HIS REAPPEARANCE Sheikh No’maani narrates this supplication in his book ‘Al Ghaybah’ from Yunus bin Zibyaan that Imam Sadiq (A.S.) said:
When the eve of Friday arrives, Allah sends an angel towards the Heaven of this world. That blowing the dawn, that angel sits on the Throne situating himself above the ‘Bait ul Ma’moor’. Then he arranges pulpits of light for Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him), Ali (A.S.), Imam Hasan and Imam Husain (peace be upon them), they ascend the pulpit, then the angles and the prophets and the believers gather around them and the doors of the Heaven opens wide.
When the time of Zuhr arrives, Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) says: “O’ Lord, when will the time of the fulfillment of promises made by You in Quran come?”
(And that promise is the following verse).
«وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذينَ آمَنُوا مِنْكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دينَهُمُ الَّذِي ارْتَضى لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُمْ مِنْ بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْناً»[1]
(Allah has promised those who have believed among you and done righteous deeds that He will surely grant them succession [to authority] upon the earth just as He granted it to those before them and that He will surely establish for them [therein] their religion which He has preferred for them and that He will surely substitute for them, after their fear, security, [for] they worship Me, not associating anything with Me. But whoever disbelieves after that - then those are the defiantly disobedient).
Thereafter, the angels and prophets recite the same supplication; then Mohammad, Ali, Hasan and Husain (peace be upon them) go in the state of prostration, and say:
يا رَبِّ إِغْضَبْ ، فَإِنَّهُ قَدْ هُتِكَ حَريمُكَ ، وَقُتِلَ أَصْفِياؤُكَ ، وَاُذِلَّ عِبادُكَ الصَّالِحُونَ .
“O’ Lord, be angry, as Your sanctity has been violated, Your chosen ones have been killed, Your nobles servants have been humiliated”
Allah will accept their supplication and the ‘Yaum ul Ma’loom’ is that same day.[2]

Shaheed (may Allah have mercy on him) in his book ''Zikra'' said: Ibn Abi Aqeel has chosen this supplication base on what has been narrated from the commander of the faithful (peace be upon him) concerning Qunut:
اَللّٰهُمَّ اِلَيْكَ شَخَصَتِ الْاَبْصَارُ، وَنُقِلَتِ الْاَقْدَامُ، وَرُفِعَتِ الْاَيْدِيْ، وَمُدَّتِ الْاَعْنَاقُ، وَاَنْتَ دُعِيْتَ بِالْاَلْسُنِ، وَاِلَيْكَ سِرُّهُمْ وَنَجْوَاهُمْ فِي الْاَعْمَالِ، رَبَّنَا افْتَحْ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَ قَوْمِنَا بِالْحَقِّ وَاَنْتَ خَيْرُ الْفَاتِحِيْنَ۔
اَللّٰهُمَّ اِنَّا نَشْكُوْ اِلَيْكَ غَيْبَةَ نَبِيِّنَا وَقِلَّةَ عَدَدِنَا، وَكَثْرَةَ عَدُوِّنَا، وَتَظَاهُرَ الْاَعْدَاۤءِ عَلَيْنَا، وَوُقُوْعَ الْفِتَنِ بِنَا، فَفَرِّجْ ذٰلِكَ اللّٰهُمَّ بِعَدْلٍ تُظْهِرُهُ، وَاِمَامِ حَقٍّ تُعَرِّفُهُ، اِلٰهَ الْحَقِّ اٰمِيْنَ رَبَّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ۔
He said: it gets to me that Imam Sadiq (peace be upon him) use to command his followers to observe this supplication in their Qunut after reciting the words of relief (Faraj).[1]
Sayyid (may Allah have mercy on him) reported it in Mahji Dda'wah and Kafa'ami (may Allah have mercy on him) in Balad Al-Ameen that our master, the leader of the time observes this supplication in his Qunut.
اَللّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلٰى مُحَمَّدٍ وَّاٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ، وَاَكْرِمْ اَوْلِيَاۤئَكَ بِاِنْجَازِ وَعْدِكَ، وَبَلِّغْهُمْ دَرْكَ مَا يَاْمُلُوْنَهُ مِنْ نَصْرِكَ، وَاكْفُفْ عَنْهُمْ بَاْسَ مَنْ نَصَبَ الْخِلَافَ عَلَيْكَ، وَتَمَرَّدَ بِمَنْعِكَ عَلٰى رُكُوْبِ مُخَالَفَتِكَ، وَاسْتَعَانَ بِرِفْدِكَ عَلٰى فَلِّ حَدِّكَ، وَقَصَدَ لِكَيْدِكَ بِاَيْدِكَ، وَوَسِعْتَهُ حِلْمًا لِتَاْخُذَهُ عَلٰى جَهْرَةٍ، وَتَسْتَاْصِلَهُ عَلٰى عِزَّةٍ۔
فَاِنَّكَ اللّٰهُمَّ قُلْتَ وَقَوْلُكَ الْحَقُّ «حَتّٰى اِذَا اَخَذَتِ الْاَرْضُ زُخْرُفَهَا وَازَّيَّنَتْ وَظَنَّ اَهْلُهَا اَنَّهُمْ قَادِرُوْنَ عَلَيْهَا اَتَاهَا اَمْرُنَا لَيْلًا اَوْ نَهَارًا فَجَعَلْنَاهُمْ حَصِيْدًا كَاَنْ لَمْ تَغْنَ بِالْاَمْسِ كَذٰلِكَ نُفَصِّلُ الْاٰيَاتِ لِقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُوْنَ»۔
وَقُلْتَ «فَلَمَّا اٰسَفُوْنَا انْتَقَمْنَا مِنْهُمْ»، وَاِنَّ الْغَايَةَ عِنْدَنَا قَدْتَنَاهَتْ، وَاِنَّا لِغَضَبِكَ غَاضِبُوْنَ، وَاِنَّا عَلٰى نَصْرِ الْحَقِّ مُتَعَاصِبُوْنَ، وَاِلٰى وُرُوْدِ اَمْرِكَ مُشْتَاقُوْنَ، وَلِاِنْجَازِ وَعْدِكَ مُرْتَقِبُوْنَ، وَلِحُلُوْلِ وَعِيْدِكَ بِاَعْدَاۤئِكَ مُتَوَقِّعُوْنَ۔
اَللّٰهُمَّ فَاْذَنْ بِذٰلِكَ، وَافْتَحْ طُرُقَاتِهِ، وَسَهِّلْ خُرُوْجَهُ، وَوَطِّاْ مَسَالِكَهُ، وَاَشْرِعْ شَرَاۤئِعَهُ، وَاَيِّدْ جُنُوْدَهُ وَاَعْوَانَهُ، وَبَادِرْ بَاْسَكَ الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِيْنَ، وَابْسُطْ سَيْفَ نَقِمَتِكَ عَلٰى اَعْدَاۤئِكَ الْمُعَانِدِيْنَ، وَخُذْ بِالثَّارِ، اِنَّكَ جَوَادٌ مَكَّارٌ۔
“O’ Allah, Your springs of benevolence and dignity are brimming with Your bounties, and the gates of Your solitary supplications are open for all those who intend You, Your affectionate gazes are continuously aimed upon those who face towards Your courtyard with extreme humility and humbleness while fright and terror has reached its final extent and helplessness has become immense, the anticipators are incapable of further perseverance,
and You O’ Allah are in ambush for the schemers, You have not let them loose in spite of Your respite for them, only he who relies upon You relaxes in peace, who desires You is benefitting, who intends Your door, O’ Allah, is secured.
O’ Allah, punish them sooner who have oppressed to the final extent, and have continued his infidelity and ingratitude due to his ignorance towards his fate, Your forbearance has resulted in his lust greed for his motives, therefore they have hastened in committing bad deeds against Your friends and devotees, and place their wicked traps on their ways one after the other, and visit their houses and residences with the intention of harming them.
O’ Allah, lift Your punishment from the believers, and send it down upon the transgressors.
O’ Allah, keep Your torment away from those who seek refuge in You, and descend it upon the alternators.
O’ Allah, assist the groups of truth in haste, and destruct the supporters of oppression and tyranny immediately.
O’ Allah, make us fortunate with Your gratitude, and make victory our share, and protect us from the hastening evil, and from evil fate and lust”.[1] [1] Muhaj ud Da’waat: p. 82, Al Balad ul Amin: p. 657

اَلْمُتَفَرِّدِ بِالْوَحْدَانِيَّةِ،

وَصَلِّ عَلٰى عِبَادِكَ الصَّالِحِيْنَ۔
يَا مَنْ لَايُخْلِفُ الْمِيْعَادَ اَنْجِزْ لِيْ مَا وَعَدْتَنِيْ،
وَاجْمَعْ لِيْ اَصْحَابِيْ وَصَبِّرْهُمْ،

Background
Supplicating Every Morning and Evening:
The supplicant adorns his days and nights with beautiful deeds
slaves and servants present themselves before their masters and lords every morning and evening, expressing their willingness to serve and gratitude for the bounties.
Then surely, we are more worthy of this because we know that all that Allah, Mighty and Glorified be He, has bestowed upon us of the abundant bounties and innumerable obligations, it is only due to the holy blessings of our master, Imam-e-Zamaan (a.t.f.s.).
So, it is essential that you present yourself with all your limbs and total existence, every morn and eve, in his presence.
You should know that you are being watched and heard as he (a.t.f.s.) sees you although you don’t see him (a.t.f.s.) as he make preparations for the one whom he loves and cares for. As he (a.t.f.s.) wrote to Shaykh Mufeed (a.r.),
اِنَّا غَيْرُ مُهْمِلِيْنَ لِمُرَاعَاتِكُمْ وَ لاَ نَاسِيْنَ لِذِكْرِكُمْ،
وَ لَوْلاَ ذٰلِكَ لَنَزَلَ بِكُمُ الْلأَوَاء وَ اصْطَلَمَتْكُمُ اْلأَعْدَاءُ...
“Surely we are not negligent of your affairs nor are we unmindful of your remembrance. Had it not been so, calamities would have descended upon you and enemies would have overpowered you….”
