7.Imam Mahdi (ajtfs) related Invocation after Dhuhr Prayers
Among the most recommended times for invoking the early reappearance of our master, Imam-e-Asr (a.s.) is after Dhuhr prayers.
Imam Sadiq (a.s.)says,“One who says the following after the morning and noon prayers will not die till he reaches to the Qaem (a.t.f.s.) of Ale Muhammad (s.a.w.a.).”,
اََللّهُمّ صَلّ عَلٰی مُحَمّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمّدٍ وَ عَجّلْ فَرَجَهُمْ.

7.Supplication for the appearance of imam (peace be upon him) The Invocation “ يَا سَامِعَ كُلّ صَوْتٍ ” after Dhuhr prayers:'
It was said in Falaahis Sa'il that the most important supplication after (Zuhr)noon prayer is to imitate Imam Sadiq (peace be upon him) in his supplication for Imam Al-Mahdi (peace be upon him) which the Prophet has given his glad tidings to his nation in the authentic narrations, Prophet has promised his nation that Imam Al-Mahdi will appear prior to the last hour as Muhammad bn Rahban Dabili has reported:
On the authority of Ibad bn Muhammad Mada'in, he said: I arrived near Abu Abdullah in Medina when he finished his noon prayer and I met him raising his hands to the Heaven offering the following supplication:
يا سامِعَ كُلِّ صَوْتٍ ،

1 Behaar al-Anwaar, vol. 86, p. 77; Mustadrak al-Wasaael, vol. 5, p. 96, Jamaal al-Saaleheen

I said to Imam: May my soul be sacrificed for you, isn't you have prayed for yourself? He said: I have prayed to the light of the progeny of Muhammad (peace be on them) who shall retaliate against their enemies with the command of Almighty Allah.
I said: when will he be coming out?
When the owner of creations and command wishes, Imam replied. I said: what are the signs before then? He said: the signs are many and different. I said: like what? Imam Sadiq (peace be upon him) said: A banner shall come out from the east and west, sedition will persist and a man shall come out from Yemen among the descendant of my uncle Zaid, and there shall be plunding of the house properties[1] then Allah will act according to his wishes.[2]
It has arrived in the book ‘Mikyaal ul Makarim’ that this supplication can be recited for the following benefits:
First: It is recommended to pray for his holiness (A.T.F.S.) and to request for hastening his reappearance after the ‘Zuhr’ prayer.
Second: It is recommended to lift hands while praying for his holiness (A.S.).
Third: It is recommended to regard the Holy Progeny (A.S.) as intercessors and to request in their favour before making a wish.
Fourth: It is recommended to praise and glorify Allah (S.W.T.) before beginning a supplication.
Fifth: It is recommended to send ‘Salawaat’ on Mohammad and his Holy Progeny (P.B.U.T.) before demanding a wish.
Sixth: Purifying ones soul from sins through repentance and the likes of it; so that the soul becomes purified and prepared for acceptance. The proof of this word is the request for forgiveness and freedom from hellfire requested by Imam (A.S.).
Seven: In the words of the Infallibles (A.S.) and their supplications, if the word ‘Wali’ is used singly, without any additions, then its implied on our Master, Imam Mahdi (A.S.).
Eighth: It is recommended to supplicate in the favour of the supporters and companions of his holiness (A.S.).
Ninth: Imam witnesses the actions of the followers in every condition, he watches them and their behaviour, towards which the line ‘Your eyes between your slaves’ indicates and implies.
Tenth: One of the nicknames of his holiness (A.S.) is the ‘Light of Mohammad’s Holy Progeny’. Its proof can also be witnessed in the narrations; ‘Muhaqqiq e Noori’ (R.A.) mentions a few of them in his book ‘Najm us Saqib’.
Eleventh: His holiness is superior and greater than all the Imams (A.S.) except Imam Ali (A.S.), Imam Hasan (A.S.) and Imam Husain (A.S.). This point is approved by other narrations as well.
Twelfth: Almighty Allah (S.W.T.) has treasured his holiness and has delayed his advent to avenge his enemies and the enemies of Prophet (P.B.U.H.). There are several narrations regarding this topic.
Thirteenth: The time of his Advent is amongst the concealed issues necessitated by the divine policy. It is also mentioned in several narrations.
Fourteenth: The signs mentioned in the narrations are not certain and indispensable; due to the line mentioned in the end, ‘Allah performs as per His own will’. [3]

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.[1]

Nafilah - نــافلــة
“Glory be to Allah, all praise is due to Him! There is no god but Allah.
Allah is the greatest; and there is no might and no strength but from Allah, the most superior, the All-tremendous. Glory be to Allah at morning and evening.
Glorify His purity when you enter upon the time of evening and morning. And to Him belongs praise in the heavens and the earth, at night fall and mid-day. Glory be to Allah and all honour for He is free from the stories ascribed (about Him). Peace be on His apostles. And all praise rightly belongs to Allah – Lord of the worlds. Glory be to possessor of the dominion and the Kingdom. Glory be to possessor of might and invincibility. Glory be to the Living, the one Who will never die. Glory be to the All-Self-existent, the Everlasting, Glory be to the Living the Self-subsistent. Glory be to the All-high, the Most High. Glory be to Him and exalted be He, All-glory and All-holy, our Lord and the Lord of Angels and spirit. Oh Allah, surely my sin seeks the refuge of Thy pardon; and my fear seeks the refuge of Thy peace; and my indigence seeks the refuge of Thy self-sufficiency; and my abasement seeks the refuge of Thy exaltation.
Oh Allah! Bless Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad, and pardon me, and have mercy on me, for surely Thou art the Praised and the Glorious. Oh Allah! as Thy light has guided me, so all praise is due to Thee; and by the bounty of Thy clemency pardon me, so all praise is due to Thee Oh our Lord! Thou art the Most Generous of the generous and Thy Splendour is greater than all splendour, and Thy gift is greater in merit than all gifts. Thou thank those who obey thee and forgive when disobeyed, and grants the supplication of one in distress, and removes the harm, and rescues from affliction, and enriches the indigent, and cures the ailing, and nobody can recompense for any of Thy blessings. Oh Most Merciful of the Merciful!”.
Then recite:“Oh He Who ended prophecy on Muhammad (Allah bless him and his progeny), end for me this day with goodness, and my month with goodness, and my year with goodness and my life with goodness”.


13.Imam Ali Naqi(as) supplication after the Asr Prayer(arabic na)
“O You, Who have raised high and been great, overcome and been mighty, been mighty and overcome, O You, Who has been mighty and so been great in His might, O You, Who have spread shadow over his creation, Who have endowed His people with favor,
I ask You, O You Mighty of retribution, Who avenge with His might on people of atheism, I ask You by the right of Your guardian Ali bin Abu Talib and I make him the means between You and my needs, to have mercy on Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad and to help me satisfy my needs, perform my nafilas (Supererogatory prayers) and obligations and be pious to my brothers, and perfect in Your obedience, O You, the Most Merciful of the merciful.’



14. You may then do thethanksgiving prostration.(sajda Shukr)
When you intend to leave the mosque, you may say the following:
اللَّهُمَّ دَعَوْتَنِي فَاجَبْتُ دَعْوَتَكَ
allahumma da`awtani fa'ajabtu da`wataka
O Allah, when You called at me, I responded to Your call,

وَصَلَّيْتُ مَكْتُوبَتَكَ
wa sallaytu maktubataka
performed the prayer prescribed by You,

وَٱنْتَشَرْتُ فِي ارْضِكَ كَمَا امَرْتَنِي
wantashartu fi ardika kama amartani
and dispersed through the land as You have ordered me to do.

فَاسْالُكَ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ ٱلْعَمَلَ بِطَاعَتِكَ
fa'as'aluka min fadlika al`amala bita`atika
So, I beseech You to make me, out of Your favoring, work in obedience to You,

وَٱجْتِنَابَ مَعْصِيَتِكَ
wajtinaba ma`siyatika
avoid disobedience to You,

وَٱلْكَفَافَ مِنَ ٱلرِّزْقِ بِرَحْمَتِكَ
walkafafa min alrrizqi birahmatika
and gain sufficient sustenance, in the name of Your mercy.



15.From Sahifa Radhvia after Asr
Behaar al-Anwaar, vol. 87, p. 85-Raja’ Ibn Abi Zahhaak narrates: ‘On his journey to Khorasan, Imam Reza (a.s.) while sitting on his prayer-mat, after Asr prayer, would recite Tasbeeh (Glorification of Allah), Tamjeed (Praise be to Allah), Takbeer (Allah is the greatest) and Tahleel (there is no god but Allah) as many times as he wished. Then he would offer prostration of gratitude while he would recite one hundred times
حَمْدًا لِلهِ.
hamdan lillaahe.
Praise is for Allah.


“After performing Asr prayer seek forgiveness from Allah seventy-seven times (77)
Muhammad Ibn Fuzail Sairafee on the authority of Imam Reza (a.s.) who on the authority of his forefathers (a.s.) who on the authority of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) mentions this that he (s.a.w.a.) said to a person Allah will settle down your sins committed during seventy-seven (77) years. by this recitation.”
The person exclaimed: ‘If I do not get an age of seventy-seven years?’,Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) replied:“Then the sins committed by your father would be forgiven.”
The person again asked: ‘If I and my father do not get an age of seventy-seven years?’.Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) answered:“Then the sins committed by you, your father or your mother would be forgiven.”
The person again retorted: ‘If I, my father and my mother do not get an age of seventy-seven years?’, Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) responded:“Then the sins committed by you, your father, your mother and your relatives would be forgiven.”
