There is no god save Allah, the All-great and Most Forbearing.
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.).”,
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 ،
يا جامِعَ (كُلِّ فَوْتٍ) ،
يا بارِئَ كُلِّ نَفْسٍ بَعْدَ الْمَوْتِ ،
يا باعِثُ ،
يا وارِثُ ،
يا سَيِّدَ السَّادَةِ ،
يا إِلهَ الْآلِهَةِ ،
يا جَبَّارَ الْجَبابِرَةِ ،
يا مَلِكَ الدُّنْيا وَالْآخِرَةِ ،
يا رَبَّ الْأَرْبابِ ،
يا مَلِكَ الْمُلُوكِ . يا بَطَّاشُ ،
يا ذَا الْبَطْشِ الشَّديدِ ،
يا فَعَّالاً لِما يُريدُ ،
يا مُحْصِيَ عَدَدِ الْأَنْفاسِ وَنَقْلِ الْأَقْدامِ ،
يا مَنِ السِّرُّ عِنْدَهُ عَلانِيَةٌ ،
يا مُبْدِئُ ، يا مُعيدُ .
O' He who hear all voice, O' He who gathered every thing, O' He who created soul after death, O' the causer, O' the Inheritor, O' master of the masters, O' God of gods, O' The Mighty over the oppressors, O' The king of this world and the Hereafter, O' the Lord of the lords, O' the King of the kings, O' the vigorous, O' He who attain extreme vigorous, O' He who did what He wishes, O' He who knows the number of breaths and movement of feet, O' He who to Him all secrets are visible, O' the starter, O' He who returns every thing.
I requested from You by the sake of your right overthe best among Your creatures and for the sake of their right you have made incumbent on Yourself to send Your blessing on Muhammad and members of his house and to grant me the rescue of my neck from the Hell fire, execute for Your good friends from the descendant of Your Prophet, the callers to Your course with Your permission, Your trustee among Your creatures, Your sight among Your servants, Your proof among Your creatures, may Your peace and blessing be upon him.
O' Allah! Support him with Your assistance and assist Your servant, empowered his companions and grant them patient, Open for them a protected authority and hasten his relief, let him prevail over Yours and Your Prophet's enemies, O' the Most Merciful of the merciful.
1 Behaar al-Anwaar, vol. 86, p. 77; Mustadrak al-Wasaael, vol. 5, p. 96,
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 then Allah will act according to his wishes.
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’.

11. Invocation of Imam Kazim (a.s.) after Asr prayers for the Reappearance of Imam-e-Zamaan (a.t.f.s.)
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:
You are God, there is no any other deity except You, the first and the last, the apparent, the Inward, You are God, there is no any other deity except You, unto You the increase and decrease of all things, You are God, there is no any other deity except You, You create the creations without helping hand from other than You and You are not in need of them; You are God, there is no any other deity except You, all wishes from You and unto You all the initiation.
You are God there is no any other deity except You, before the previous and the creator of the previous, You are God there is no any deity except You, after afterward the creator of afterward, You are God there is no any deity except You, You erase and establish what ever You wishes and with You the essence of the Book,
You are God there is no any other deity except You, the Goal and the Inheritor of every thing, You are God there is no any other deity except You, both small and mighty are not far away from You, You are God there is no any other deity except You, there is no any language hidden to You and voices are not similar to You. Every day You are at Your duty and a duty did not disturb You from another, the Knower of all hidden and concealed things, the owner of Religion, the director of all things, He who raises those in the graves, He who gave life to bone after they have became decayed.
I requested from You by Your sheltered Name, the Eternal the Everlasting, who did not disappoint who ever call Him by His name, to send blessing on Muhammad and his family and hasten the reappearance of Your retaliator from Your enemies and execute for him all You have promised him, O' the possessor of Magnificence and Honour.
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. 12.Dua after Asr
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! 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!”.

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.’

and gain sufficient sustenance, in the name of Your mercy.
15.From Sahifa Radhvia

Then he would offer prostration of gratitude while he would
recite one hundred times
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.” Jaame’ Ahaadis al-Shiah, vol. 6, p. 104; Wasaael al-Shiah, vol. 4, p. 1053<
