Sayyid Ibn Tawus, in Iqbal al-A`mal, has mentioned these salats should be offered at this night:

First: A one hundred unit prayer with Surahs al-Fatihah and al-Tawhid recited once in each unit.

Second: A two unit prayer at the first of which Surahs al-Fatiha and al-An`am (No. 6) are recited and at the second unit Surahs al-Fatiha and Yasin (No. 36).

Third: A two unit prayer in each of which Surah al-Fatiha is recited once and Surah al-Tawhid is repeated eleven times.
The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his family) is reported to have said that whoever offers this prayer at this night and observes fasting the next day, which is the first day in the new year, the new year will be wholly good for him, and he will be saved throughout the year, and if he dies, he will be allowed Paradise.
Hadith on Recommendation of Fasting on first Muharram
Rāyyan bin Shabeeb (the maternal uncle of Mo'tasim), says that I went to meet Imām Ali ar Rezā (a.s.) on the First day of the month of Muharram
Imām Alī ibn Mūsā al-Rezā (A.S.) asked:"“O son of Shabeeb! Are you in the state of fasting today”?
I (Rāyyan bin Shabeeb) replied in the negative. Imām (a.s.) continued,“This is the day when Prophet Zakariyyah (a.s.) prayed to his Lord thus:“Lord grant me from unto Thee a good offspring, Verily Thou art the Hearer of Prayers” (Surah al-Ali Imran, 3:38).
Then Allāh (s.w.t.) accepted his Prayers and commanded His Angels to go and give him glad tidings regarding the birth of his son Prophet Yahyā (a.s.). The Angels came and called out to him while he was engaged in Prayers in the niche. Hence the one who fasts on this day and asks for his desires from Allāh, his Prayer will be answered as was of Zakariyāh.”
[References: Nafasul Mahmum, Chapter 3, Section 2, Tradition 1]
Sayyid Ibn Tawus has mentioned the merits of observing fasting during the whole month of Muharram adding that such a deed protects against committing any sin.

Take a Ghusl /bath,
with the intention(Niyat) of "Rija" for cure/protection from illness .Recite the following Dua on the water to be used:-
Subh'anallahi maal-al mizaan Subh'anallahi muntahal h'ilm
Glory be to Allah the Supreme balance ,Glory be to Allah the Ultimate in gentleness,
Subh'anallahi mublaghar riz'aa Subhanallahi zinatal a'rsh
Glory be to Allah the Goal of devotedness, Glory be to Allah the splendor of the Arsh

Salaah for the New Month
Imam Ridha (peace be upon him) is reported to have said that the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his family), on the first of Muharram, used to offer a two unit prayer. When he finished, he would raise his hands towards the heavens and repeat the following prayer three times:

اَللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ ٱلإِلٰهُ ٱلْقَدِيمُ

وَمَا يَذَّكَّرُ إِلاَّ أُوْلُوٱ ٱلأَلْبَابِ
wa ma yadhdhakkaru illa ulu al-albabi
None do mind except those having understanding.

رَبَّنَا لاَ تُزِغْ قُلُوبَنَا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَيْتَنَا
rabbana la tuzigh qulubana ba`da idh hadaytana
Our Lord, make not our hearts deviate after You have guided us aright,

وَهَبْ لَنَا مِنْ لَدُنْكَ رَحْمَةً إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ ٱلْوَهَّابُ
wa hab lana min ladunka rahmatan innaka anta alwahhabu
and grant us mercy from You; surely, You are the most liberal Giver.


Third Muharram: On this day, Prophet Joseph was freed from his prison. Hence, if one observes fasting on this day, Almighty Allah will make easy any difficulty he may face and will relieve any trouble that may face him. According to a Hadith reported from the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his family), Almighty Allah will respond to the prayer of him who observes fasting on this day.
At the advent of Muharram,we beseech Imam Mahdi (ajtfs) to increase the size of our crucible and increase our ability to grieve and offer condolences,to Ahlulbayt(as) as commanded by Quran in 42:23.

"The ten days of Muharram is a time when a special sustenance is prepared and distributed. Whether we get any portion of it (or how much) depends on how closely we orbit around Imam Hussein. Let us beseech him to choose us for his service."-Sayed Mahdi Modarresi:


"Looking forward to Muharram because shedding tears of sorrow over the martyrdom of Imam Hussein (a) does something to your heart that just can’t be put into words. It’s something that you just have to experience for yourself to understand."-Shaikh Azhar Nasser:

Imam Ali’s (as) Giving His Ring in Charity on the 24th day of Zil-Hijjah
On 24th of Dhul-hijjah, Imam Ali(as) gave his ring to a beggar whilst in ruku’ (bowing down in prayer) and the following verse was revealed identifying him as "Wali":
إِنَّمَا وَلِيُّكُمُ اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا الَّذِينَ يُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ وَهُمْ رَاكِعُونَ
Only Allah is your wali (master) and His Messenger and those who believe, those who keep up prayers and pay the poor-rate while they bow. (5:55)

Ayat Al-Ma'ida 5:54-56
" O you who have faith! Should any of you desert his religion, Allah will soon bring a people whom He loves and who love Him, [who will be] humble towards the faithful, stern towards the faithless, waging jihad in the way of Allah, not fearing the blame of any blamer. That is Allah’s grace, which He grants to whomever He wishes, and Allah is all-bounteous, all-knowing. (54)
Your guardian is only Allah, His Apostle, and the faithful who maintain the prayer and give the zakat while bowing down.
(55) Whoever takes for his guardians Allah, His Apostle and the faithful [should know that] the confederates of Allah are indeed the victorious.(56)"

These verses that contain attributes that are mentioned in them, are the evident text that clearly indicates that Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (as) is to succeed the Prophet (as) and that he is the Commander of the Faithful.

Some of these attributes are expressed by Allah(swt) in the verse as follows,:
1.if any from among you turn back from his Faith, soon will Allah produce a people whom He will love as they will love Him.

All who have quoted these verses, including the oppossers and the ones who agree, have written that in the Battle of Khaybar, the Noble Prophet (as) said the following to our Imam Ali (as) when the Muslims were defeated: “Tomorrow I will give the flag to one who loves God and the Prophet (as).
And God and the Prophet (as) love him.
He is a man who attacks continuously.
And he never flees so that by him (as) God endows triumph to the Muslims."
Also, the Noble Prophet (as) has said the following about Ali (as) in the Ta‟ir narration: “O‟ my God! Make present the most beloved creature so that he sits beside my tablecloth with me to eat this bird.”

2.Another attribute that Allah(swt)says in these verses is as follows:
"- lowly with the believers, mighty against the rejecters,"1 These two opposing attributes in the verse existed in none of those near God‟s Prophet (as) and the companions except for our Master Ali (as) as it was just Ali (as) who had the attribute of being perfectly humble before God who is aware of the unseen when he was relieved from battle.
He associated well with the believers and was wholeheartedly concerned for the disabled and the helpless ones.
And he (as) had been recognized in the state of battle as being an individual who was headstrong and harsh with the unbelievers.
And he did frightening acts when faced with the strongest men of the enemy forces to the extent that anyone who saw him tolerating the battle‟s difficulties said: “This is the one which we have mentioned as one of the most humble worshippers and ascetics.”
3.Another attribute that God the Glorified the Sublime mentions in these verses is the following, " fighting in the way of Allah, and never afraid of the reproaches of such as find fault."5:54-56
We do not know any of the companions or the people close to God‟s Prophet (as) who challenged the Commander of the Faithful (as) in the affair of Caliphate, and leadership of the nation who defended the Muslims in great events like Ali (as) did.
In the continuance of the above verse, the Sublime the Glorified God suddenly revealed His intention with another sentence for ones who have insight and He says: "Your (real) friends are (no less than) Allah, His Messenger, and the (fellowship of) believers,- those who establish regular prayers and regular charity while they bow down humbly (in worship).
Here God first mentions the leadership of the Sublime the Glorified God which covers all of the creatures.
Then, it mentions the leadership of God‟s Prophet (as) which has that same attribute of Divine Leadership.
Then, it makes note of the leadership of the one who gave charity while bowing down in prayer with that same clear evidence after the leadership of God and His Prophet (as).
This is enlightenment by the strong verses of the speaking Qur‟an.

4.Another characteristic that the Sublime the Glorified God mentions in continuation of the verse is as follows: "As to those who turn (for friendship) to God!, His Messenger, and the (fellowship of) believers,- it is the fellowship of Allah that must certainly triumph."
This verse mentions characteristics like "certainly triumph" and the perfect proof of God.
And this attribute is especial to the one who is Immaculate in all of his deeds.
And it has not been claimed about any of the others who challenged Imam Ali (as) regarding the Caliphate as necessarily being immaculate in ranks and posts.
Thus, these verses state that the intention of the leadership in which has been mentioned is uniquely the Divine Leadership of Imam Ali (as).

Some refrences from Sunni scholars
the author of the book Al-Jam’ Bayna as-Sahah al-Sittih who has quoted it in the third part – which is the last part of this book.
Also Al-Sa‟labi narrated the following in his book of the interpretation of the Qur‟an on the authority of Al-Sadi and Abtat ibn Abi Hakim,
A similar narration has been reported by Ababat ibn al-Rub'ee, Ibn Abbas and Abizar.
A similar narration has been reported by Al-Shafe'ee ibn Al-Maqazily in five ways.
A similar narration has been reported by Ali ibn Abis and Abdullah ibn A'ta.
Al-Zumukhshari in Kitab al-Kishaf narrated the following in interpretation of the Qur‟an.

All the members of the Household of the Prophet (as) whom the Prophet has clearly described by saying, "They shall not separate until they meet at the Pond!" unanimously agree that this verse has been revealed regarding our Imam - the Commander of the Faithful Ali (as).
25th of Dhul-hijjah - On this blessed day, Surah al-Dahr (or al-Insan No. 76) was revealed praising the Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them) for they had observed fasting for three days and given their food to a poor, an orphan, and a captive for three days respectively. All over these three days, they used to break their fasting with water only.
It is worthy that the followers of the Prophet's family should emulate their masters during these days-especially on the 25th night of the month-and fast on this day while helping the needy and orphans and offering them meals.
