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

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. 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.

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)

The author of Mikyaal al-Makaarim writes, “There are times and occasions in which supplications for the hidden Imam, Hazrat Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) have been emphasized, asking Allah for his early reappearance, and these have been supported by Quranic verses, traditions and the intellect.
Supplications after Every Obligatory Prayers
Other Supplications

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 آلِهكِ وَ سكَلّمْ نَبِي اَ وَ بِعَلٰى وَ لِي اَ،
وَ بِالْحَسكَنِ وَ الْحُسكَيْنِ وَ عَلٰى بْنكِ الْحُسَيْنِ وَ مُحَمّدِ بْنِ عَلٰى وَ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمّدٍ وَ مُوسَی بْنِ جَعْفَرٍ وَ عَلٰى وَ الْحُجّةِ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلٰى عَلَيْهِمُ اَلسّلَمُ اَئِمّةً.
اََللّهُمّ وَلِيّكَ الْحُجّةُ،
فَاحْفَظْهُ مِنْ بَيْنِ يَدَيْهِ وَ مِنْ خَلْفِهِ وَ عَنْ يَمِيْنِهِ وَ عَنْ شِمَالِ هِ وَ مِ نْ فَوْقِ هِ وَ مِ نْ تَحْتِ هِ،
وَ اُمْدُدْ لَ هُ فِ يْ عُمُرِ هِ،
وَ اجْعَلْ هُ الْقَائِ مَ بِاَمْرِ كَ الْمُنْتَصِرَ لِدِيْنِكَ،
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.

4) Invocation for the renewal of allegiance for Imam-e-zamaan (a.t.f.s.) after every obligatory daily prayers: Allama Majlisi in Behaar al-Anwaar, narrates from the book, “Al-Ikhteyaar” of Sayyed Ibn Baaqi, that Imam Sadeq (a.s.) said, “One who recites this supplication after every obligatory daily prayers, then he will certainly get the privilege of seeing Imam-e-Zamaan (a.t.f.s.), in sleep or otherwise.

بِسْمِ الِ الرّحْمٰنِ الرّحِيْمِ،
اََللّهُمّ بَلّغْ مَوْلَنَا صَاحِبَ الزّمَانِ،
اَيْنَمَا كَانَ وَ حَيْثُمَا كَانَ،
مِنْ مَشَارِقِ اْلَرْضِ وَ مَغَارِبِهَا، سَهْلِهَا وَ جَبَلِهَا،

اََللّهُم اِنّىْ اُجَدّدُ لَ هُ فِ يْ صَبِيْحَةِ هٰذَا الْيَوْ مِ وَ م اَ عِشْتُ فِيْ هِ مِ نْ اَي اَ مِ حَيَاتِىْ،
عَهْدًا وَ عَقْدًا وَ بَيْعَةً لَهُ فِيْ عُنُقِىْ،
لَ اَحُوْلُ عَنْهَا وَ لَ اَزُوْلُ اَبَدًا.
اََللّهُمّ اجْعَلْنِىْ مِنْ اَنْصَارِهِ وَ الذّابّيْنَ عَنْهُ،
وَ الْمُمْتَثِلِيْنَ لَوَ امِرِهِ وَ نَوَ اهِيْهِ فِيْ اَيَا مِهِ،
وَ الْمُسْتَشْهَدِينَ بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ.
اََللّهُمّ اِنْ حَالَ بَيْنِىْ وَ بَيْنَهُ الْمَوْتُ الّذِىْ جَعَلْتَهُ عَلٰی عِبَادِكَ حَتْمًا مَقْضِيَا،
فَاَخْرِجْنِىْ مِنكْ قَبْرِىْ، مُؤْتَزِرًا كَفَنِىْ، شَاهِرًا سكَيْفِيْ،
مُجَرّدًا قَنَاتِىْ، مُلَبّي اَدَعْوَ ةَ الدّاعِىْ فِيْ الْحَاضِرِ وَ الْبَادِىْ.
اََللّهُمّ اَرِنِىْ الطّلْعَةَ الرّشِيْدَةَ وَ الْغُرّةَ الْحَمِيْدَةَ،
وَ اکْحُلْ بَصَرىِْ بِنَظْرَةٍ مِنّىِ اِلَيْهِ،
وَ عَجّلْ فَرَجَهُ وَ سَهّلْ مَخْرَجَهُ.
اََللّهُمّ اشْدُدْ اَزْرَهُ وَ قَوَ ظَهْرَهُ وَ طَوَ لْ عُمْرَهُ،
وَ اعْمُرِ اللّهُمّ بِهِ بِلَدَكَ وَ اَحْىِ بِ هِ عِبَادَ كَ، فَاِنّكَ قُلْتَ وَ قَوْلُكَ الْحَق :ّ ’’ظَهَرَ الْفَ سَادُ فِ يْ الْبَرّ وَ الْبَحْرِ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ اَيْدِىْ النّاسِ.‘‘
فَاَظْهِرِ اللّهُمّ لَنَا وَلِيّكَ وَ ابْنَ بِنْتِ نَبِيّكَ،
الْمُسَمّیٰ بِاسْمِ رَسُولِكَ صَلّی ال عَلَيْ هِ وَ آلِ هِ،
حَتّ یٰ لَ يَظْفَرَ بِشَیْءٍ مِ نَ الْبَاطِلِ اِلّ مَزّقَ هُ وَ يُحِق ال الْحَقّ بِكَلِمَاتِهِ وَ يُحَقّقَهُ.
اََللّهُمّ اکْشِفْ هٰذِهِ الْغُمّةَ عَنْ هٰذِهِ اْلُمّةِ بِظُهُوْرِهِ،
اِنّهُمْ يَرَوْنَهُ بَعِيْدًا وَ نَرَاهُقَرِيْبًا،
وَ صَلّی ال عَلٰی مُحَمّدٍ وَ آلِهِ.


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.

اََللّهُم اَيّدْهُ بِنَصْرِكَ،
وَ انْصُرْعَبْدَكَ وَ قَوّ اَصْحَابَهُ وَ صَبّرَهُمْ،
وَ افْتَحْ لَهُمْ مِنْ لَدُنْكَ سُلْطانًا نَصِيْرًا،
وَ عَجّلْ فَرْجَهُ وَ اَمْكَنَهُ مِنْ اَعْدَائِكَ وَ اَعْدَاءِ رَسُولِكَ يَا اَرْحَمَ الرّاحِمِيْنَ.
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.

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

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

فِيْمَا حَفَرَ، وَ اصْرِفْ عَنِّىْ مِنْ شَرِّهِ وَ مَكْرِهِ، وَ فَسَادِهِ وَ ضُرِّهِ مَاتَصْرِفُهُ عَنِ الْقَوْمِ الْمُتَّقِيْنَ. اِلٰهِىْ عَبْدُكَ عَبْدُكَ، اَجِبْ دَعْوَتَهُ، وَ ضَعِيْفُكَ

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.

These two brief supplications learnt by heart would be heavy in weight on the balance of deeds in the Hereafter.
First supplication Muhajjut Dawat, Pg. 182, Quoted from Mujarribat al-Imamiya, Pg. 390


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.

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.

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 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.


Seventh:It is narrated in Kafi, through a chain of narrators, from Furaat Ibn al-Ahnaf, who narrates from Imam Sadeq (a.s.) that he (a.s.) said, You may neglect to do anything, but never neglect saying the following prayer in mornings and evenings
