5.Day Dua II- Iqbal Aamal-29th
سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي يَعْلَمُ ما يَلِجُ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَ ما يَخْرُجُ مِنْها وَ ما يَنْزِلُ مِنَ السَّماءِ وَ ما يَعْرُجُ فِيها وَ لَا يَشْغَلُهُ ما يَنْزِلُ مِنَ السَّماءِ وَ ما يَعْرُجُ فِيها
“Glory be to God who knows all that enters the earth and all that emerges therefrom and all that comes down from the sky and all that ascends therein.
عَمَّا يَلِجُ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَ ما يَخْرُجُ مِنْها وَ لَا يَشْغَلُهُ ما يَلِجُ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَ ما يَخْرُجُ مِنْها عَمَّا يَنْزِلُ مِنَ السَّماءِ وَ ما يَعْرُجُ فِيها و
What enters the earth and what emerges therefrom do not divert His Attention from what comes down from the sky and what ascends therein; and what comes down from the sky and what ascends therein do not divert His Attention from what enters the earth and what emerges therefrom.
Watching over one thing does not divert His Attention from watching over another thing.
Nothing is comparable to Him, nor is there anything to rival Him. There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the All-Hearing, the All-Seeing.
سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ بَارِئِ النَّسَمِ
Glory be to God, the Creator of the breath of life!
سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ الْمُصَوِّرِ
Glory be to God, the Bestower of Forms!
سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ خَالِقِ الْأَزْوَاجِ كُلِّهَا

9 Saying goodbye
A Point about Saying Goodbye to the Month of Ramadhan
If one asks and says: “What is the meaning of saying goodbye to the month of Ramadhan although the month of Ramadhan is lifeless, we say that: „The wise people before the Prophet (MGB), at his time and later always speak with the land, the homeland, youth, good times, safety and goodness. When Islamic literature appeared, it approved what the intellect and understanding decree given the fact that even the Holy Qur‟an used the same style where the Honorable the Exalted God says: “One Day We will ask Hell, “Art You filled to the full?” It will say,“Are there any more (to come)?”1 As you consider, the Noble Qur‟an informs them that Hell spoke. And the meaning of this is that it spoke with the mute tongue. There are many similar instances to this in the Noble Qur‟an, in the words of the Noble Prophet (MGB) and the Divine Leaders (MGB) - may God‟s greetings be upon them – and the words of the learned ones. And there is no need to elongate this for the wise people. Based upon this, also the mute tongue of those who pay attention to the month of Ramadhan from among the believers and the Muslims do better than those who addressed the lands and the homelands. They benefit more from it than their relatives and the month of Ramadhan is more important to them than lands and art works. Now they are forced to say farewell to it at the time of separating from the month of Ramadhan.
Saying farewell to the month of Ramadhan needs more explanation since those who say farewell to it are in several groups as follows.
One group of them pursue attaining God‟s Wants and observe the etiquette of this month in public and private. They say farewell to the month of fasting like those who were loyal and kept their promise. They do so as the farewell supplications of our Master Zayn al-Abedin (MGB) with the month of Ramadhan are.
Another group have acted according to God‟s Wants sometimes and have kept distance with its requirements with negligence or disobedience at other times. They should not say farewell to this month if they have not observed the fasting etiquette at its end since those who are separate from each other never say farewell to each other. The mind and the intellect require that one should say farewell to those who are in agreement with us. However, if they were behaving well when the month of Ramadhan ends, then they may say farewell to it to according to how much they respected it. Moreover, they should ask for forgiveness from God, become regretful for how they were in that month, and at the time of saying farewell, they should regret a lot for the fact that they have sometimes misbehaved during it.
Another group do not spend the month of Ramadhan with sincerity. Rather, some are unhappy since the month of Ramadhan prevents them from their habits of taking God‟s Remembrance lightly while God is aware of the unseen. In reality, these people were not with the month of Ramadhan to say farewell to it. Rather, when the month of Ramadhan had landed near their house, they were not a good neighbor for it. They disliked it and they treated it badly. Thus, it does not make sense for them to say farewell to the month of Ramadhan and whatever they say shall not even be heard.
O‟ man! Do not be like one to whom a needless guest enters – an important guest who has not come from there since last year – and he gives you blessings and forgiveness plus many gifts, fulfillment of your demands and attention that cannot be expressed in words. Do not be a bad host for that generous guest, do not mistreat him, debase him or treat him like a bad guest. If you do so, the guest may leave you while blaming you and you will be disgraced and regretful. Thus, either be good with him and recognize the rights of this guest who has brought along prosperity, mercy, kindness and safety from fears or at least be neutral with him. Thus, do not treat him badly and with impoliteness because you ruin yourself with your bad deeds, and you become infamous near the kings and the generous ones who have attained safety and Divine Pleasure.
Regarding the time of saying farewell with the fasting month, the following is reported on the authority of one of the Divine Leaders (MGB) in a book by a group of our scholars. It was written in a letter in which the questions of a group of the important narrators have been discussed was asked is as follows.“When is the time of saying farewell to the month of Ramadhan; because our companions have disagreement about this. Some say: “It is on its last night.” “And some say, „It is on its last day when the crescent moon of the month of Sha‟wal is seen.‟ ”
The answer: “The deeds of the month of Ramadhan are on its nights, the farewell is on its last night. However, if you fear that the month may end in less than thirty days, you should say farewell on two nights.”
This was the exact text of the narration that we had obtained and quoted. Thus, try to correct your inner self at the time of saying farewell with the month of Ramadhan since man sees his state. Choose the best time to say farewell to the virtue which existed in the month of Ramadhan. Do so in the best time on the last night as it was written in the past narration. However, if it is not possible on the last night, say farewell to it in the last moments of the last day of separating from the month of Ramadhan. Based upon this, anytime you had a good month of Ramadhan, express farewell to it on its last day or night like you say farewell to your intimate and loyal friends who recognize the right of a good guest: And regret for separating from it to the extent which you lose the benefits and rewards of a party. Cry and shed tears as you would do so when friends separate from each other after gathering together.
Al-Sheikh Ja‟far ibn Muhammad ibn Ahmad ibn al-Abbas ibn Muhammad al-Duristy narrated in the book Kitab al-Husna, through a chain of documents on the authority of Jabir ibn Abdullah al-Ansari: “I went to see God‟s Prophet (MGB) on the last Friday of the month of Ramadhan. Once he (MGB) saw me, he (MGB) said, “O‟ Jabir! This is the last Friday of the month of Ramadhan. Bid farewell to it and say the following:
„O‟ my God! Please do not make this the last month of Ramadhan in our lifetime. However, if You decide to do so, then please let me enjoy Your Mercy and do not deprive me of it.‟ ”
Indeed whoever recites this shall gain two benefits: He either lives to the next month of Ramadhan or is forgiven by God with His Mercy.
