It is narrated in an inscription handwritten by Shaykh al-Shahid that the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him and his family) said: Whoever desires that Almighty Allah will not show him his evildoings (that he did in this world) on the Resurrection Day and will not open the record of his evildoings, should say the following after each obligatory prayer:
allahumma inni as'aluka al`afwa wal-`afiyata
O Allah, I ask You for amnesty, good health,

Supplications after Every Obligatory Prayers 82 Rabeeul Anaam Fi Adeea-e-Khairil Anaam
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. There are numerous invocations,
narrated on the authority of the infallible Imams (a.s.) in this regard.
A few of them we shall mention hereunder:
3) Supplications after Every Obligatory Prayer
Shaykh Saduq (a.r.), in “ مَنْ لَ يَحْضُرُهُ الْفَقِيهْ ” narrates from the ninth
Imam, Muhammad al-Jawad (a.s.), the following supplication:
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.
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:
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:
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,
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,
1.In al-Ja’fariyyaat: In his narration from Ja’far ibn Muhammad (a.s.) from his fathers (a.s.) from Imam Ali (a.s.):When the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) had prayed two rak’ahs before the Morning Prayer,After The Naafelah:
he (s.a.w.a.) laid down on his right side and placed his right hand under his right cheek, then said:
istamsakto be-u’rwatil laahil wusqal latee lan fesaama lahaa was ta’samto be-hablil laahil mateen.
a-o’ozo billaahe min fawratil a’rabe wal a’jame wa a-o’ozo billaahe min sharre shayaateenil inse wal jinne.
I have laid hold of the firmest handle of Allah which shall not break off and I have clung to the strong rope of Allah. I seek refuge with Allah from the outbursts of the Arab and the non-Arab, and I seek refuge with Allah from the evil of the devils from the man and jinn.
tawakkalto a’lal laahe talabto haajatee menal laahe hasbeyal laaho wa ne’mal wakeelo laa hawla wa laa quwwata illaa billaahil a’liyyil a’zeeme.
I trust in Allah. I seek the fulfillment of my needs from Allah. Allah is enough for me and He is the best Procurator, there is no power or might but by (the will of) Allah the Sublime, the Mighty.

In the Name of Allah the All-compassionate, the All-merciful;
la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahi al`aliyyi al`azimi
there is neither might nor power save with Allah, the All-high and All-great.
8.Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (peace be upon him) is also reported to have said that one who desires to enjoy both the worldly life and the Next World, and one who has eye ache, should say the following prayer after the Dawn and Sunset Prayers:
allahumma inni as'aluka bihaqqi muhammadin wa ali muhammadin `alayka

to send blessings to Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad
وَٱجْعَلِ ٱلنُّورَ فِي بَصَرِي
waj`al alnnura fi basari
and to give light to my insight,
وَٱلْبَصِيـرَةَ فِي دِينِي

9.Three Supplications Taught by Sayyid Muhammad al-Sultanabadi to Shaykh Muhammad Sadiq al-`Iraqi (through Imam Mahdi - peace be upon him) that alleviated his extreme grief and poverty
(1) He taught him that he, after the Dawn Prayers, should put his hand on his chest and repeat seventy times the phrase of:
O Greatest Judge
(2) He taught him to regularly say the following supplicatory prayer that, as is recorded in al-Kafi, the Holy Prophet (s) taught to one of his companions who had been afflicted by disease and poverty. Soon after that, the man recovered health and got rid of poverty. The supplication is this:
لاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاََّ بِٱللَّهِ
la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahi
There is neither might nor power except with Allah.
تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَىٰ ٱلْحَيِّ ٱلَّذِي لاَ يَمُوتُ
tawakkaltu `ala alhayyi alladhi la yamutu
I put my trust in the Ever-living (Lord) Who never dies.
walhamdu lillahi alladhi lam yattakhidh waladan
All praise is due to Allah, Who has not taken a wife or a son
وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ شَرِيكٌ فِي ٱلْمُلْكِ
wa lam yakun lahu sharikun fi almulki
and Who has not have a partner in the kingdom,
وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ وَلِيٌّ مِنَ ٱلذُّلِّ
wa lam yakun lahu waliyyun min aldhdhulli
and Who has not have a helper to save Him from disgrace;
wa kabbirhu takbiran
and magnify Him with all magnificence.
(3) He taught him to say the dua below. In `Uddat al-Da`i, Shaykh Ibn Fahad reports Imam `Ali ibn Musa al-Rida (peace be upon him) to have said: Whoever says the following dua after the Dawn Prayer, will have all his requests made easy-to-gain for him and will be saved by Almighty Allah against every thing that aggrieves him:
In the Name of Allah.

Background of 3 Duas : Our master scholar, Shaykh al-Nuri, in his book of Dar al-Salam, has recorded on the authority of his mentor Fath `Ali al-Sultanabadi that Shaykh Muhammad Sadiq al-`Iraqi had lived in harsh poverty for a long time without finding any solution for his state until he saw, in dream, that he was in a valley where there was an enormous tent with a dome over it.
As he asked about the lord of that tent, he was answered that it was owned by Imam al-Mahdi, the Awaited—the protecting shelter and the relief of the deprived ones—may Allah hasten his reappearance. He therefore hurried towards that tent and complained about his poverty, asking the Imam (`a) to teach him a supplication that would relieve him from his grief and save him from his misfortunes. The Imam, having heard his complaint, instructed him to visit the tent of one of his offspring. He therefore left the Imam’s tent and headed for the tent to which he was guided. When he reached there, he saw Sayyid Muhammad al-Sultanabadi sitting in his prayer-place while he was engaged in uttering supplications and litanies. He greeted him and told him about his story with the Imam.
The Sayyid therefore taught him a supplication that would relieve him from poverty and bring him good sustenance.
When the man woke up, he found that he had learnt that supplication by heart; therefore, he hurried to the house of the Sayyid and found him in the same state that he had seen in the dream. As if the Sayyid had already known about the dream, he welcomed the man and smiled in his face. The man hence asked the Sayyid about that supplication and the Sayyid answered him. Immediately after saying the supplication persistently, the man became so wealthy that fortune covered him from all sides.
Hajj Fath `Ali al-Sultanabadi used to praise the Sayyid so laudably. For some time, he studied under him. The aforementioned three matters were taught by the Sayyid to that man.
10.Qutub Rawandi reported from Imam Ali (as) that the Holy Prophet (saws) has stated, that he was afraid for him who does not remember the 4 blessings at dawn & as a result , may be snatched away from him
alh'amdu lillaahil lad'ee satara u'yoobee wa lam yafz'ah'nee baynan naasi
All Praise to Allah who has covered my sins & shortcomings & did not degrade me in the eyes of Human beings
Alternate translation Praise be to Allah who made me aware of His nafs (reality) and did not forsake me to be one of those whose hearts do not perceive.
Praise to be Allah who gave me (wisdom) to follow and obey Muhammad, blessings of Allah be on him and on his children, and also peace.
Praise be to Allah who has kept my sustenance in His (own) hand and did not give it to other people (like me) from whom I may have to seek it.
Praise be to Allah who covers my defects and shortcomings and does not disclose my infamy among the people. Praise be to Allah, the one and only.
11.Syeda Fatima Zehra (sa) supplication after the Morning Prayer]
laa elaaha illal laaho wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul mulko wa lahul hamdo, yohyee wa yomeeto, be-yadehil khayro, wa howa a’laa kulle shay-in qadeer.
There is no god, except Allah, the one, there is no partner for Him. For Him is the kingdom and for Him is the praise. He enlivens and gives death, in His hands is the good. And He is powerful over everything.
Ten times after the Morning Prayer, and ten times after Maghrib Prayer; all these would earn ten rewards, and ten sins would be forgiven each of them being equal to freeing slave from the progeny of Ismail, and no sin would be there on anyone, except the polytheist. And it is protection for you from all Satans and all evils if you recite between morning and evening
12.This supplication, is reported from Imam `Ali Amir al-Mu'minin (peace be upon him) at the Night of Hijrah, is said each morning and evening.]
hajaztu al-a`adiya `anni bibadi`i alssamawati wal-ardi
I am restraining the enemies against me through the Originator of the heavens and the earth;
وَجَعَلْنَا مِنْ بَيْنِ أَيْديهِمِ سَدّاً
inna ja`alna min bayni aydihim saddan
“And We have set a bar before them
وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ سَدّاً
wa min khalfihim saddan
and a bar behind them,
فَأَغْشَيْنَاهُمْ فَهُمْ لاَ يُبْصِرُونَ
fa-aghshaynahum fahum la yubsiruna
and (thus) have covered them so that they see not.”
13.Dua From Holy Prophet(saws) From Mufeed al-Deen in al-Majaalis:
Narrated from Abi Barzah al-Aslami from his father who said: When the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) had offered the Fajr Prayer, he (s.a.w.a.) raised his voice until his companions could hear him say the foll three times each :
allaahumma innee a-o’ozo beka laa maane-a’ lemaa a-a’tayta wa laa mo’teya lemaa mana’ta wa laa yanfa-o’ zal jadde minkaljaddo.
O Allah! I seek refuge with You – nobody can deny to the one whom You have given, and nobody can give to the one whom You have denied and nobody’s efforts come to fruition without You.Amaali al-Toosi,, vol. 1, p. 158; Behaar al-Anwaar,, vol. 86, p. 134
From al-Qutb in his Da’waat: When the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) had offered the Morning Prayer he (s.a.w.a.) said:
allaahumma matte’nee be-sam-e’e wa basaree waj a’lhomal waaresayne minnee wa arenee saaree min a’duwwee.
O Allah! Grant me the use of my hearing and sight and let them stay with me till my death and show me the destruction of my enemies.al-Majlisi quotes it from Behaar al-Anwaar, vol. 86, p. 130
From Sayyid Ibn Taaoos in al-Iqbaal: Narrated from Ja’far ibn Muhammad (a.s.) from his father (a.s.), who said in a hadees:
When the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) had completed his Morning Prayer, he (s.a.w.a.) would (continue to) face the Qiblah until sunrise, invoking Allah the Almighty (s.w.t.). At this time, Ali ibn Abi Talib (a.s.) would come forward and sit behind the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) and the people would come to seek permission to ask for their needs, and this is what the Prophet of Allah (s.a.w.a.) had instructed them to do.Iqbaal al-Aamaal, p. 320; Behaar al-Anwaar, vol. 35, p. 289
14.In al-Faqeeh: The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) used to say after the Fajr prayer:
allaahumma innee a-o’ozo beka menal hamme wal huzne wal a’jze wal kasale wal bukhle wal jubne wa zal-i’d dayne wa ghalabatir rejaale wa bawaaril ayyaame wal ghaflate waz zillate wal qaswate wal a’ylate wal maskanate
O Allah! I seek protection with You from grief and sorrow, weakness and laziness, miserliness and cowardice, turning away from the truth and idle talk of men, wasting time and negligence, vileness and cruelty, destitution and poverty.>

And I seek protection with You from the self that never gets satisfied, the heart that does not humble itself, the eye that does not shed tears, the supplication that is not heard, the prayer that does not benefit.
wa a-o’ozo beka menim ra-atin toshayyebonee qabla awaana masheebee wa a-o’ozo beka min waladin yakoono a’layya ribban wa a-o’ozo beka min maalin yakoono a’layya a’zaaban wa a-o’ozo beka min saahebe khadee-a’tin in ra-ay hasanatin da-fa-nahaa wa in ra-ay sayye-atan afshaahaa.
And I seek protection with You from a woman who makes me old before my time, and I seek protection with You from a son who subjugates me, and I seek protection with You from wealth that is a torment for me, and I seek protection from the deceiver who conceals any good that he sees and propagates any evil that he sees.
allahumma laa taj-a’l le-faajerin a’layya (i’ndee) yadan wa laa minnatan.
O Allah! Do not let an insolent one ever do me a favor and do not make him expect anything from me.

15.Six verses to protect from Adversity Imam Ali (peace be upon him) said: “Whoever recites these six verses every morning, Allah will protect them from any adversity, even if they were already in danger.”
"And if Allah should touch you with affliction, none can remove it save He; and if He intends for you good, none can hold back His Bounty. He causes it to reach whomsoever He wills among His servants. And He is the Forgiving, the Merciful." (Yunus, 10:107)
"And were you to ask them, 'Who created the heavens and the earth?' They would surely say, 'Allah.' Say, ‘Then have you considered what you invoke besides Allah? Should Allah desire some harm for me, can they remove His Harm? Or, should He desire some mercy for me, can they withhold His Mercy?’ Say, ‘Allah is sufficient for me. In Him, let the trusting put their trust.’" (al-Zumar, 39:38)
"Say, ‘Allah is sufficient for me. There is no god except Him. In Him, I put my trust, and He is the Lord of the Great Throne. I seek protection in Allah's Power and Strength from that of others, and I ask the intercession of the Lord of the Daybreak from the evil of what He has created. I seek refuge in what Allah wills; there is no power except with Allah, the Exalted, the Magnificent.'"
Subsequent to the Noon (Dhuhr) Prayer, say the following supplicatory prayer, as is quoted from Misbah al-Mutahajjid:
This supplication has been reported from Imam Hasan Askari, who reported from his father, who reported from his forefathers, who reported from Imam Aba-Abdullah, who reported from Imam Ali, who reported from the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon them all)
لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ ٱللَّهُ ٱلْعَظِيمُ ٱلْحَلِيمُ
la ilaha illa allahu al`azimu alhalimu
There is no god save Allah, the All-great and Most Forbearing.
Wa An Tqilni Asrati Wa-Tastor Ala Znoobi Wa Tagfirha Lee
That so you let go of what I have stumbled upon and that you cover my sins and you forgive them for me
وَتَقْضِيَ لي حَوائجي وَلا تُعَذِّبْني بِقَبيحٍ كانَ مِنّي،
Wa Taqdi Lee Hawaeiji Wa La Toazbni B Qabeehin Kaan Min-ni
and grant me my needs and do not torment me due to the filth of what was done by me,
فَاِنَّ عَفْوَكَ وَجُودَكَ يَسَعُني،
Fa Inna Afwaka Wa Joodak Yasaoni
For your mercy and generosity suffices me
اِنَّكَ على كُلِّ شَيء قَديرٌ.
Innaka Ala Kol Shai-in Qadeer
As you are capable to do all things
Imam Mahdi (ajtfs) related Invocation after Dhuhr Prayers
Among the most accentuated times for invoking the early
reappearance of our master, Imam-e-Asr (a.s.) is after Dhuhr prayers.
According to one tradition from Imam Sadeq (a.s.),
“One who says after the morning and noon prayers,
He will not die till he reaches to the Qaem (a.t.f.s.) of Ale Muhammad (s.a.w.a.).”
The Invocation “ يَا سَامِعَ كُلّ صَوْتٍ ” after Dhuhr prayers:'
Following in the footsteps of Imam Sadeq (a.s.), we should pray for
Imam al-Mahdi (a.t.f.s.), the saviour of humanity, who will reappear
in the last era as promised by the Messenger of Islam (s.a.w.a.) to
his nation through authentic traditions. Abbaad Ibn Muhammad al-
Madaaeni says, “I went to meet Imam Sadeq (a.s.) in Madina. After
finishing his zohr prayers, he (a.s.) raised his head towards the sky and said,
allahumma inni as'aluka alyusra ba`da al`usri
O Allah, I surely beseech You for easiness after difficulty,
وَٱلْفَرَجَ بَعْدَ ٱلْكَرْبِ
walfaraja ba`da alkarbi
relief after misfortune,
وَٱلرَّخَاءَ بَعْدَ ٱلشِّدَّةِ
walrrakha'a ba`da alshshiddati
and comfort after hardship.
اَللَّهُمَّ مَا بِنَا مِنْ نِعْمَةٍ فَمِنْكَ
allahumma ma bina min ni`matin faminka
O Allah, You are certainly the source of each and every favor that covers us.
لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ
la ilaha illa anta
There is no god save You.
أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَ أَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ
astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayka
I pray Your forgiveness and repent before You.
Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (peace be upon him) is reported as saying: Anyone who implores Almighty Allah’s forgiveness (i.e. astaghfirullaha) seventy times after the `Asr Prayer will have seven hundred of his sins forgiven.
Imam Muhammad al-Taqi (al-Jawad) (peace be upon him) is also reported as saying: Anyone who recites Surah al-Qadr (No. 97) ten times after the `Asr Prayer will be granted the reward of the deeds of all creatures on that day.
It was stated in "Falaahi Ssa'il" among the important supplication to be observed after (Asr) afternoon prayer by imitating our master Musa ibn Ja'afar Al-Kazim (peace be upon him) in his dedicated supplication to our master Al-Mahdi (peace and blessing of Allah be on his grand father Muhammad and same to him) as it was narrated by Yahya bn Al-Fadl Naufali, he said: I entered to Abu Al-Hasan, Musa bn Ja'afar after (Asr) afternoon prayer in Baghdad, thus I met him raising his hand to the Heaven and I heard him reciting the following:
I said to him, whom did you prayed for? He said: to Al-Mahdi of the Prophet's household (peace be on them).
He continued saying: may my father be sacrifice for him, his eyebrow are very close, his legs are very energetic, his shoulder is wide, brown in colour and close to be yellowish, may my father be sacrifice for him, his night shall guard the stars by his bowing down and prostration to Allah, may my father be sacrifice for him, he who the blames of those that blame shall not affect before Allah, he is the luminous lamp, may my father be sacrifice for him, he shall rise with the command of Allah.
I said to him, when will he come out? He said: when you saw armies from the city of Anbar in Iraq at the beach of Furat, sirah and Dajlah, and the arch of Kufah is destroy, and burning of some houses in Kufah, when you see all this, verily Allah will act according to His wish, no one can subdue the commandment of Allah and no one can review His Judgement.
10) Invocation of Imam Kazim (a.s.) after Asr prayers for the Reappearance of Imam-e-Zamaan (a.t.f.s.)
Among the times that have been emphasized a lot, is after the Asr
prayers. Its proof is the quotation found in the book, Falaah al-
Saael, by Sayed Ali Ibn Taawoos (a.r.). He writes, “Among the
important duties after the Asr prayers is to follow Imam Musa al-
Kazim (a.s.) in his invocation for our master, Hazrat Mahdi (a.t.f.s.),
as has been narrated by Muhammad Ibn Bushair al-Azdi, from
Ahmad Ibn Umar al-Katib, from al-Hasan Ibn Muhammad Ibn
Jamhoor al-Ammi, from his father Muhammad Ibn Jamhoor, from
Yahya Ibn Fadhl al-Naufeli, who said, “I went to meet Abul Hasan
Musa Ibn Ja’far (a.s.) at Baghdad. When he finished his Asr
prayers, he raised his hands towards the heavens and I heard him
say,1 Behaar al-Anwaar, vol. 86, p. 62.
fa'innahu la yaghfiru aldhdhunuba kullaha jami`an illa anta
for none can forgive all sins save You.
You may then offer the Sunset supererogatory (Nafilah) prayer, which consists of four units of prayer, each two separated by a Taslim statement. You should not utter any word between the two parts of the prayer.
According to the Shaykh, it has been narrated that Surah al-Kafirun (No. 109) should be recited in the first unit and Surah al-Tawhid in the second. In the third and fourth units, it is optional to recite any other Surah desired.
It has been also narrated that Imam `Ali al-Naqi (al-Hadi) (peace be upon him) used to recite, in the third unit (Rak`ah) of this prayer, Surah al-Fatihah and the first six verses (Ayahs) of Surah al-Hadid, and in the fourth unit, Surah al-Fatihah and the last four verses of Surah al-Hashr.
It is also recommended to repeat the following supplicatory prayer seven times in the last prostration (sajdah) of all supererogatory prayers each night, especially at Friday nights (i.e. the night before Friday):
wa la tu`annini bitalbi ma lam tuqaddiru li fihi rizqan
Please, do not fatigue me by seeking that which You have not decided for me to take,
فَإِنَّكَ غَنِيٌّ عَنْ عَذَابِي
fa'innaka ghaniyyun `an `adhabi
because You are certainly in no need for tormenting me
وَ أَنَا فَقِيـرٌ إِلَىٰ رَحْمَتِكَ
wa ana faqirun ila rahmatika
while I am in full need for Your mercy.
فَصَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ
fasalli `ala muhammadin wa alihi
(Please) Send blessings upon Muhammad and his Household
وَجُدْ عَلَىٰ عَبْدِكَ بِفَضْلِكَ
wa jud `ala `abdika bifadlika

إِنَّكَ ذُو فَضْلٍ عَظيم
innaka dhu fadlin `azimin
You are surely the Lord of great favor.
