A'amal   Umme  Dawood  15 Rajab

Be it known that the best a'mal for middle of Rajab is Do'a-e-Umme Dawood. It is best for fulfilment of desires and removal of oppressions and calamities.  Imam Ja'far-e-Sadiq (A.S.) said"Do not teach this amal to each and everyone lest some should perform it for illegitimate purpose. It contains Great Name of Allah (Isme Azam) and every desire will be attained for which it is performed in spite of all hurdles, even if doors of heaven and earth are shut as it were, Allah will suffice even if all the mankind and genie are against the performer and every body will be subjugated. If performed, in any other month other than Rajab, in the middle of the month after observing fast on 13th, 14th and 15th it will carry the same benefit. It is also beneficial to perform this amal on any auspicious day like Friday or Arfa without observing fast.

I invoke with an invocation of the humiliated disgraced, depressed, frightened, helpless, lowly, unimportant hungry, and poor seeking Your protection, helpless confessing his sin and hoping to be forgiven, whose confidence led his invocation to acceptance before his Lord while he was discarded by those who loved him and his agony was great.


My invocation is with a burning heart, inflicted by miseries, struck with weakness, disgrace and helplessness; I am worthless before you seeking your protection.


O' Allah! I ask you for you are the sovereign and happen what you will and you are powerful over everything.


And I beseech you in the name of this sacred month and in the name of the Sacred House and the Sacred City. The Rukn and the Maqaam (place were Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S.) used to stand for prayers) and the grand Singns and for the sake of Your Prophet Mohammad (S.A)


O' Who blessed Adam with Sheeth and Ibrahim with Ismail and Ishaque and who restored Yusuf to Yaqub and who removed the miseries of Ayoob after You did try him.


O' Who restored Musa to his mother! O' the bestower of increasing knowledge to Khizr, O' Who blessed Dawood with Sulaiman! and Zacharia with Yahya and Maryam with Isa!

O' who protected the daughter of Sho'ib! O' who looked after the Mother of Musa!


I beseech You to bestow Your blessings, on Mohammad and his progeny and to forgive all my sins and protect me from Your chastisement and render Your pleasure implicite for me as also Your trust. Your benevolence, Your forgiveness and Your Paradise.


And I beseech You to remove from me all such links that are between me and those who annoy me and request You to open for me every door and lighten every hardship and make every difficulty easy and save me against every evil tongue and hold back from me every rebellious person and turn topsy-turry every enemy of mine jealous of me and withhold every oppressor from me and be You sufficient for me against every barrier that comes between me and my desires and tries to turn me away from obedience to You or diverts me from my devotion to You.


O' Who controlled the rebellious genni and punished the rebellious, humiliated the conceited and dispelled the devices of the powerful against the weak.


I ask You in the name of Your Power on whatever You will and the Ease for whatever you will and howsoever You will to fulfil my desires as You will.


O' Allah! Send Your Blessings on Mohammad and his Progeny. Ameen.

O' Allah! Send Your Blessings On Mohammad and his Progeny.


In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful.

O' Allah! I am in prostration before you and have accepted faith in You. You therefore have mercy on my disgrace, my indigence, my Endeavour, my entreaty to You, my helplessness and my poverty before You O' my Lord!

The Imam (A.S.) said that one should try to shed a tear even a tiny one as it is a sign of acceptance of invocation. In another tradition the following Do'a is recommended to be recited once in prostration (Sajda).


O' Allah! Send Your Blessings on Mohammad and his Progeny.

In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful.

O' Allah! I am in prostration before You and have accepted faith in You. Therefore have mercy on my disgrace, my humiliation before You, my poverty, my indigence, my seclusion, my fear, my efforts towards You and my total reliance in You.


O' Allah I I begin with You and beg of You for success. And I turn to You through Mohammad Your bondman and Your Messenger and through his progeny.


O' Allah! Make easy for me hardships of my life and lighten for me my miseries and grant me good more than my expectation and save me from the mischief and dispel from me all the evil.

Who was Umm Dāwūd?

She was Fātima, the mother of Dāwūd, a great grandson of the 2nd Imam, Hasan al- Mujtaba (a) and a foster brother of the 6th Imam, Jafar al-Sādiq (a). Umm Dāwūd had served as a wet nurse to Imam as-Sādiq (a).

Once, the 6th Imam (a) was ill so Fātima (Umm Dāwūd) went to visit him. During her visit the Imam inquired about his [foster] brother Dāwūd. Fātima replied that she had lost hope in finding him, for she did not even know whether he was alive or dead. The Imam taught her an Amāl (a combination of Quranic recitations, supplications and prayers) that was very effective in getting a quick outcome of ones legal needs. It is said that, whoever performs this Amāl, the doors of skies are opened for him/her, and the angels descend from heavens to receive him and to inform him of the good news of acceptance.

Umm Dāwūd said that she waited till she performed the Amāl on 15th of Rajab. The next day someone knocked the door and, to her amazement it was her son Dāwūd, who got released from the prison. Dāwūd narrated to her mother that he was held in a very high security prison with chains on his neck, hands and feet. Suddenly, one fine day the guards came in and took him to Mansūr, the ruler. He ordered the chains to be removed, gave Dāwūd ten thousand Dirhams, and a fast ride to take to him home.  

It is reported authentically that Umme Dawood asked wether this Amal can be performed in anyother month than Rajab. The Holy Imam replied in the affirmative and said that it can be performed on Day of Arfa and if perchance Arfa falls on Fri day, the performer will not have finished yet that he will be absolved of his sins.


This Amal can be performed in any month. One should observe fast on 13th, 14th and 15th day of the month and recite this Do'a on 15th as described above. His wish inshaallah will be fulfilled.
