Notes:

We worked on this book in several formats, because there was not any English translation of this book free downloadable in word, html and pdf as we have been searching it since last year except some parts of it on some sites.

The method of our work was as following:

1- We took the software (android) of Mafatih from the version of Erfan.ir

2- We transfered all parts even page by page into html format by sending one by one of them by sharing on our email: http://alhassanain2014@gmail.com

3- Then, we pasted them into unformatted text, and started to recheck whether there is any error or not, so, we found out that Surah al-Rum has only 26 verses, and like other errors.

4- We saw that this version does has not any chapterizing, so, we chapterized it according to the original text of Persian and then Arabic Translation of it.

5- .....

 

Despite of all we have done, if you see any error, please inform us on our email mentioned above, we welcome it and will try to recorrect as soon as possible.

 

May Allah accept our endeavours in His path, Amen!

Good Luck

AAMAL OF THE LAST TEN NIGHTS OF RAMADHAN

Starting with this night, it is recommended to say the supplicatory prayers that are dedicated to the last ten nights of Ramadan.

(1) In al-Kafi, Shaykh al-Kulayni has reported Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq(a.s.) as saying: At the last ten nights of Ramadan, you may say the following supplicatory prayer:

اَعُوذُ بِجَلالِ وَجْهِكَ الْكَرِيمِ اَنْ يَنْقَضِيَ عَنِّي شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ اَوْ يَطْلُعَ الْفَجْرُ مِنْ لَيْلَتِي هَذِهِ وَ لَكَ قِبَلِي ذَنْبٌ اَوْ تَبِعَةٌ تُعَذِّبُنِي عَلَيْهِ.

(2) As a footnote in al-Balad al-Amin, al-Kaf’ami has mentioned that Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq(a.s.) used say the following supplicatory prayer at each of the last ten night of Ramadan after the obligatory and supererogatory prayers:

اللّٰهُمَّ اَدِّ عَنَّا حَقَّ مَا مَضَى مِنْ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ وَ اغْفِرْ لَنَا تَقْصِيرَنَا فِيهِ وَ تَسَلَّمْهُ مِنَّا مَقْبُولا وَ لا تُؤَاخِذْنَا بِاِسْرَافِنَا عَلَى اَنْفُسِنَا وَ اجْعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَرْحُومِينَ وَ لا تَجْعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَحْرُومِينَ

He adds that Almighty Allah will forgive one who says this supplicatory prayer all the sins that he has committed in the past days of Ramadan and will protect him against sinning in the rest of it.

(3) In Iqbal al-A’mal, Sayyid Ibn Tawus has narrated on the authority of Ibn Abi-’Umayr on the authority of Murazim that Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq(a.s.) used to say the following supplicatory prayer at each of the last ten nights of Ramadan:

اللّٰهُمَّ اِنَّكَ قُلْتَ فِي كِتَابِكَ الْمُنْزَلِ شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي اُنْزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْءَانُ هُدًى لِلنَّاسِ وَ بَيِّنَاتٍ مِنَ الْهُدَى وَ الْفُرْقَانِ فَعَظَّمْتَ حُرْمَةَ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ بِمَا اَنْزَلْتَ فِيهِ مِنَ الْقُرْآنِ وَ خَصَصْتَهُ بِلَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ وَ جَعَلْتَهَا خَيْرا مِنْ اَلْفِ شَهْرٍ اللّٰهُمَّ وَ هَذِهِ اَيَّامُ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ قَدِ انْقَضَتْ وَ لَيَالِيهِ قَدْ تَصَرَّمَتْ وَ قَدْ صِرْتُ يَا اِلَهِي مِنْهُ اِلَى مَا اَنْتَ اَعْلَمُ بِهِ مِنِّي وَ اَحْصَى لِعَدَدِهِ مِنَ الْخَلْقِ اَجْمَعِينَ فَاَسْاَلُكَ بِمَا سَاَلَكَ بِهِ مَلائِكَتُكَ الْمُقَرَّبُونَ وَ اَنْبِيَاؤُكَ الْمُرْسَلُونَ، وَ عِبَادُكَ الصَّالِحُونَ اَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَنْ تَفُكَّ رَقَبَتِي مِنَ النَّارِ وَ تُدْخِلَنِي الْجَنَّةَ بِرَحْمَتِكَ وَ اَنْ تَتَفَضَّلَ عَلَيَّ بِعَفْوِكَ وَ كَرَمِكَ وَ تَتَقَبَّلَ تَقَرُّبِي وَ تَسْتَجِيبَ دُعَائِي وَ تَمُنَّ عَلَيَّ [اِلَيَ‏] بِالْاَمْنِ يَوْمَ الْخَوْفِ مِنْ كُلِّ هَوْلٍ اَعْدَدْتَهُ لِيَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ اِلَهِي وَ اَعُوذُ بِوَجْهِكَ الْكَرِيمِ وَ بِجَلالِكَ الْعَظِيمِ اَنْ يَنْقَضِيَ اَيَّامُ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ وَ لَيَالِيهِ وَ لَكَ قِبَلِي تَبِعَةٌ اَوْ ذَنْبٌ تُؤَاخِذُنِي بِهِ اَوْ خَطِيئَةٌ تُرِيدُ اَنْ تَقْتَصَّهَا مِنِّي لَمْ تَغْفِرْهَا لِي سَيِّدِي سَيِّدِي سَيِّدِي اَسْاَلُكَ يَا لا اِلَهَ اِلا اَنْتَ اِذْ لا اِلَهَ اِلا اَنْتَ، اِنْ كُنْتَ رَضِيتَ عَنِّي فِي هٰذَا الشَّهْرِ فَازْدَدْ عَنِّي رِضًا وَ اِنْ لَمْ تَكُنْ رَضِيتَ عَنِّي فَمِنَ الْآنَ فَارْضَ عَنِّي يَا اَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ يَا اللّٰهُ يَا اَحَدُ يَا صَمَدُ يَا مَنْ لَمْ يَلِدْ وَ لَمْ يُولَدْ وَ لَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ كُفُوا اَحَدٌ

(4) You may repeat the following supplicatory prayer as many times as possible during this night:

يَا مُلَيِّنَ الْحَدِيدِ لِدَاوُدَ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ يَا كَاشِفَ الضُّرِّ وَ الْكُرَبِ الْعِظَامِ عَنْ اَيُّوبَ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ اَيْ مُفَرِّجَ هَمِّ يَعْقُوبَ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ اَيْ مُنَفِّسَ غَمِّ يُوسُفَ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ كَمَا اَنْتَ اَهْلُهُ اَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَيْهِمْ اَجْمَعِينَ وَ افْعَلْ بِي مَا اَنْتَ اَهْلُهُ وَ لا تَفْعَلْ بِي مَا اَنَا اَهْلُهُ

(5) Shaykh al-Kulayni, in al-Kafi, has narrated, with a complete chain of authority, that the following supplicatory prayer, which is also narrated in al-Muqni’ah and al-Misbah yet with an interruption in the chain of authority, should be said at the twenty-first night of Ramadan:

يَا مُولِجَ اللَّيْلِ فِي النَّهَارِ وَ مُولِجَ النَّهَارِ فِي اللَّيْلِ وَ مُخْرِجَ الْحَيِّ مِنَ الْمَيِّتِ وَ مُخْرِجَ الْمَيِّتِ مِنَ الْحَيِّ يَا رَازِقَ مَنْ يَشَاءُ بِغَيْرِ حِسَابٍ يَا اللّٰهُ يَا رَحْمَانُ يَا اللّٰهُ يَا رَحِيمُ يَا اللّٰهُ يَا اللّٰهُ يَا اللّٰهُ لَكَ الْاَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَى وَ الْاَمْثَالُ الْعُلْيَا وَ الْكِبْرِيَاءُ وَ الْآلاءُ اَسْاَلُكَ اَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَنْ تَجْعَلَ اسْمِي فِي هَذِهِ اللَّيْلَةِ فِي السُّعَدَاءِ وَ رُوحِي مَعَ الشُّهَدَاءِ وَ اِحْسَانِي فِي عِلِّيِّينَ وَ اِسَاءَتِي مَغْفُورَةً وَ اَنْ تَهَبَ لِي يَقِينا تُبَاشِرُ بِهِ قَلْبِي وَ اِيمَانا يُذْهِبُ الشَّكَّ عَنِّي وَ تُرْضِيَنِي بِمَا قَسَمْتَ لِي وَ آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَ فِي الْآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَ قِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ الْحَرِيقِ وَ ارْزُقْنِي فِيهَا ذِكْرَكَ وَ شُكْرَكَ وَ الرَّغْبَةَ اِلَيْكَ وَ الْاِنَابَةَ وَ التَّوْفِيقَ لِمَا وَفَّقْتَ لَهُ مُحَمَّدا وَ آلَ مُحَمَّدٍ عَلَيْهِ وَ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلامُ.

MISCELLANEOUS AAMAL FOR THE 21ST NIGHT OF RAMADHAN

(6) Al-Kaf’ami has quoted Sayyid Ibn Baqi as saying that it is recommended to say the following supplicatory prayer at the twenty-first night of Ramadan:

اللّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اقْسِمْ لِي حِلْما يَسُدُّ عَنِّي بَابَ الْجَهْلِ وَ هُدًى تَمُنُّ بِهِ عَلَيَّ مِنْ كُلِّ ضَلالَةٍ وَ غِنًى تَسُدُّ بِهِ عَنِّي بَابَ كُلِّ فَقْرٍ وَ قُوَّةً تَرُدُّ بِهَا عَنِّي كُلَّ ضَعْفٍ وَ عِزّا تُكْرِمُنِي بِهِ عَنْ كُلِّ ذُلٍّ وَ رِفْعَةً تَرْفَعُنِي بِهَا عَنْ كُلِّ ضَعَةٍ وَ اَمْنا تَرُدُّ بِهِ عَنِّي كُلَّ خَوْفٍ وَ عَافِيَةً تَسْتُرُنِي بِهَا عَنْ كُلِّ بَلاءٍ وَ عِلْما تَفْتَحُ لِي بِهِ كُلَّ يَقِينٍ وَ يَقِينا تُذْهِبُ بِهِ عَنِّي كُلَّ شَكٍّ وَ دُعَاءً تَبْسُطُ لِي بِهِ الْاِجَابَةَ فِي هَذِهِ اللَّيْلَةِ وَ فِي هَذِهِ السَّاعَةِ السَّاعَةِ السَّاعَةِ السَّاعَةِ يَا كَرِيمُ وَ خَوْفا تَنْشُرُ [تُيَسِّرُ] لِي بِهِ كُلَّ رَحْمَةٍ وَ عِصْمَةً تَحُولُ بِهَا بَيْنِي وَ بَيْنَ الذُّنُوبِ حَتَّى اُفْلِحَ بِهَا عِنْدَ الْمَعْصُومِينَ عِنْدَكَ بِرَحْمَتِكَ يَا اَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ

It has been narrated that Ali ibn Hammad visited Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq(a.s.) at the twenty-first night of Ramadan. “Have you bathed yourself, Hammad?” asked the Imam. “Yes, I have,” answered Hammad. The Imam (a.s.) then asked him to stand by him so as to imitate him in offering prayers. Hammad did. When they finished all the prayers, the Imam (a.s.) began to supplicate and Hammad listened and prayed for response. When dawn rose, the Imam (a.s.) declared the adhan (call to prayer), uttered the iqamah (the prefatory part of prayers), and then summoned one of his servants to participate in the prayer. They all stood behind the Imam (a.s.) who led their congregational Fajr (dawn) Prayer reciting Surahs al-Faatehah and al-Qadr in the first unit and Surahs al-Faatehah and al-Tawheed in the second. When he finished the post-prayer litanies and doxologies, praising Him, venerating Him, thanking Him, invoking His blessings upon the Holy Prophet and his Household, and praying Him for the good of all the believing men and women as well as all the Muslims, Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) prostrated himself. The companions could not hear anything except the Imam’s breaths for a long time. Hammad narrated: I could then hear him saying the following:

لَااِلٰهَ اِلَّا اَنْتَ مُقَلِّبَ الْقُلُوْبِ وَالْاَبْصَارِ....

This long supplicatory prayer has been mentioned by Sayyid Ibn Tawus in his book of Iqbal al-A’mal.

Al-Kulayni has narrated that Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (a.s.) used to supplicate Almighty Allah at the twenty-first and twenty-third nights of Ramadan up to midnight. After that, he would offer prayers.

As for the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.), it has been narrated that he used to bathe himself at each of the last ten nights of Ramadan.

Being the best time of I’tikaf (the ritual seclusion in places of worship for practicing acts of worship), it is highly recommended to practice the ritual I’tikaf at the last ten nights of Ramadan, for this deed brings about an abundant reward. According to narrations, its reward is as same as the reward of two times of Hajj and two times of ‘Umrah. In this regard, it is reported that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.), at the last ten nights of Ramadan, used to confine himself to the mosque where a dome made of camel hair would be erected for him while he would roll up his bed and prepare himself for worship.

It is worth mentioning that at the twenty-first night of Ramadan, the sadnesses of the Shi’ah should be shown. At the twenty-first night of Ramadan, AH 40, Imam Ali ibn Abi-Talib, Ameer al-Momineen - peace be upon him - departed life as martyr. It is narrated that fresh blood would be found under any rock that was lifted at that night. The same thing happened at the night of Imam al-Husayn’s martyrdom.

Shaykh al-Mufid says: At this night, it is highly recommended, as frequently as possible, to invoke Almighty Allah’s blessings upon the Holy Prophet and his Household and to invoke His curse upon those who have wronged the Ahl al-Bayt and upon the killer of Imam AliAmeer al-Momineen.

يَا سَالِخَ النَّهَارِ مِنَ اللَّيْلِ فَاِذَا نَحْنُ مُظْلِمُونَ وَ مُجْرِيَ الشَّمْسِ لِمُسْتَقَرِّهَا بِتَقْدِيرِكَ يَا عَزِيزُ يَا عَلِيمُ وَ مُقَدِّرَ الْقَمَرِ مَنَازِلَ حَتَّى عَادَ كَالْعُرْجُونِ الْقَدِيمِ يَا نُورَ كُلِّ نُورٍ وَ مُنْتَهَى كُلِّ رَغْبَةٍ وَ وَلِيَّ كُلِّ نِعْمَةٍ يَا اللّٰهُ يَا رَحْمَانُ يَا اللّٰهُ يَا قُدُّوسُ يَا اَحَدُ يَا وَاحِدُ يَا فَرْدُ يَا اللّٰهُ يَا اللّٰهُ يَا اللّٰهُ لَكَ الْاَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَى وَ الْاَمْثَالُ الْعُلْيَا وَ الْكِبْرِيَاءُ وَ الْآلاءُ اَسْاَلُكَ اَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ [عَلَى‏] اَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ وَ اَنْ تَجْعَلَ اسْمِي فِي هَذِهِ اللَّيْلَةِ فِي السُّعَدَاءِ وَ رُوحِي مَعَ الشُّهَدَاءِ وَ اِحْسَانِي فِي عِلِّيِّينَ وَ اِسَاءَتِي مَغْفُورَةً وَ اَنْ تَهَبَ لِي يَقِينا تُبَاشِرُ بِهِ قَلْبِي وَ اِيمَانا يُذْهِبُ الشَّكَّ عَنِّي وَ تُرْضِيَنِي بِمَا قَسَمْتَ لِي وَ آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَ فِي الْآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَ قِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ الْحَرِيقِ وَ ارْزُقْنِي فِيهَا ذِكْرَكَ وَ شُكْرَكَ وَ الرَّغْبَةَ اِلَيْكَ وَ الْاِنَابَةَ وَ التَّوْفِيقَ لِمَا وَفَّقْتَ لَهُ مُحَمَّدا وَ آلَ مُحَمَّدٍ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلامُ

23RD NIGHT OF RAMADHAN

The twenty-third night of Ramadan, the last of the Qadr Nights, is more meritorious than the two previous ones; namely, the nineteenth and the twenty-first. Many narrations confirm that it is the Qadr Night at which all wise affairs are decided. Apart from the general acts that are advisably practiced at the three Qadr Nights, there are other acts to be practiced at the twenty-third night of Ramadan:

First: It is recommended to recite Surahs al-’Ankabut (No. 29) and al-Rum (No. 30). Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) is reported to have said, “Whoever recites these two Surahs at this night, will be included with the people of Paradise.”

Second: It is recommended to recite Surah al-Dukhan (No. 44).

Third: It is recommended to repeat Surah al-Qadr one thousand times.

Fourth: It is highly advisable to repeat the following famous supplicatory prayer as many times as possible at this night:

اَللهمَّ کُن لولیّکَالحُجةِ بنِ الحَسَنِ صَلَواتُکَ عَلَیهِ و عَلی ابائهِ فی هذهِ السّاعةِ، و فی کُلّ ساعَة وَلیّا و حافظا وقائِداً وَ ناصِراً وَ دَلیلاً وَ عَیناً حَتّی تُسکِنَهُ اَرضَکَ طَوعاً و تُمَتّعَهُ فیها طَویلًا.

Fifth: It is recommended to say the following supplicatory prayer:

اللّٰهُمَّ امْدُدْ لِي فِي عُمُرِي وَ اَوْسِعْ لِي فِي رِزْقِي وَ اَصِحَّ لِي جِسْمِي وَ بَلِّغْنِي اَمَلِي وَ اِنْ كُنْتُ مِنَ الْاَشْقِيَاءِ فَامْحُنِي مِنَ الْاَشْقِيَاءِ وَ اكْتُبْنِي مِنَ السُّعَدَاءِ فَاِنَّكَ قُلْتَ فِي كِتَابِكَ الْمُنْزَلِ عَلَى نَبِيِّكَ الْمُرْسَلِ صَلَوَاتُكَ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ يَمْحُو اللّٰهُ مَا يَشَاءُ وَ يُثْبِتُ وَ عِنْدَهُ اُمُّ الْكِتَابِ

Sixth: It is recommended to say the following supplicatory prayer:

اللّٰهُمَّ اجْعَلْ فِيمَا تَقْضِي وَ فِيمَا تُقَدِّرُ مِنَ الْاَمْرِ الْمَحْتُومِ وَ فِيمَا تَفْرُقُ مِنَ الْاَمْرِ الْحَكِيمِ فِي لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ مِنَ الْقَضَاءِ الَّذِي لا يُرَدُّ وَ لا يُبَدَّلُ اَنْ تَكْتُبَنِي مِنْ حُجَّاجِ بَيْتِكَ الْحَرَامِ فِي عَامِي هٰذَا الْمَبْرُورِ حَجُّهُمْ الْمَشْكُورِ سَعْيُهُمْ الْمَغْفُورِ ذُنُوبُهُمْ الْمُكَفَّرِ عَنْهُمْ سَيِّئَاتُهُمْ وَ اجْعَلْ فِيمَا تَقْضِي وَ تُقَدِّرُ اَنْ تُطِيلَ عُمْرِي وَ تُوَسِّعَ لِي فِي رِزْقِي

Seventh: It is recommended to say the following supplicatory prayer that is mentioned in the book of Iqbal al-A’mal:

يَا بَاطِنا فِي ظُهُورِهِ وَ يَا ظَاهِرا فِي بُطُونِهِ وَ يَا بَاطِنا لَيْسَ يَخْفَى وَ يَا ظَاهِرا لَيْسَ يُرَى يَا مَوْصُوفا لا يَبْلُغُ بِكَيْنُونَتِهِ مَوْصُوفٌ وَ لا حَدٌّ مَحْدُودٌ وَ يَا غَائِبا [غَائِبُ‏] غَيْرَ مَفْقُودٍ وَ يَا شَاهِدا [شَاهِدُ] غَيْرَ مَشْهُودٍ يُطْلَبُ فَيُصَابُ وَ لا يَخْلُو [لَمْ يَخْلُ‏] مِنْهُ السَّمَاوَاتُ وَ الْاَرْضُ وَ مَا بَيْنَهُمَا طُرْفَةَ [طَرْفَةَ] عَيْنٍ لا يُدْرَكُ بِكَيْفٍ [بِكَيْفَ‏] وَ لا يُؤَيَّنُ بِاَيْنٍ [بِاَيْنَ‏] وَ لا بِحَيْثٍ [بِحَيْثُ‏] اَنْتَ نُورُ النُّورِ وَ رَبُّ الْاَرْبَابِ اَحَطْتَ بِجَمِيعِ الْاُمُورِ سُبْحَانَ مَنْ لَيْسَ كَمِثْلِهِ شَيْ‏ءٌ وَ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْبَصِيرُ سُبْحَانَ مَنْ هُوَ هَكَذَا وَ لا هَكَذَا غَيْرُهُ

Then, one may pray for settling his needs.

Eighth: It is recommended to do a new bathing, other than the first one, at the last hours of night. In fact, to bathe oneself, to spend the whole night with acts of worship, to visit the holy tomb of Imam al-Husayn (a.s.), and to offer the one hundred unit prayer at this night - all these deeds have been confirmed by narrations to be done at the twenty-third night of Ramadan.

In Tahdhib al-Ahkam, Shaykh al-Tusi has narrated that Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq(a.s.) instructed Abu-Basir to offer at the night that is expected to be the Qadr Night a prayer of one hundred units reciting at each unit Surah al-Faatehah once and repeating Surah al-Tawheed ten times. “If I fail to do all the movements of this prayer, what will I do?” asked Abu-Basir. “You may then offer it while sitting,” said Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.). “What if I, too, fail to offer it while sitting?” asked Abu-Basir. “You may then offer it while lying on your bed,” said Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.).

In the book of Da’a’im al-Islam, it is mentioned that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) used to roll up his bed and tie his garment so as to dedicate all his time to acts of worship at the last ten nights of Ramadan. He also used to awaken his family members at the twenty-third night of Ramadan (so as to practice acts of worship) by splashing water on their faces. Lady Fatimah al-Zahra’(a.s.), too, used to prevent her family members from sleeping at the twenty-third night of Ramadan by reducing the amount of food that she usually gave to them and by making them sleep at day so as not to be overcome by sleepiness at night. She then used to say, “The actual deprived one is he who is deprived of the good of this night.”

It has been also narrated that Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq(a.s.), at the twenty-third night of Ramadan, ordered his servants to carry him to the mosque because he was ailed. He spent that night in the mosque up to the next morning.

‘Allamah al-Majlisi has confirmed that one should recite as much amount as possible from the Holy Qur’an at this night and should also pray Almighty Allah by saying the supplicatory prayers of al-Sahifah al-Kamilah al-Sajjadiyyah in general and the supplicatory prayers known as Makarim al-Akhlaq and al-Tawbah in particular.

The sanctity of the Qadr Days should be considered by engaging oneself with acts of worship, recitation of the Holy Qur’an, and praying Almighty Allah. Through a considerable chain of authority, it has been narrated that the Qadr Days are as holy as the Qadr Nights.

27TH NIGHT OF RAMADAN

According to narrations, it is recommended to bathe oneself at the twenty-seventh night of Ramadan. It has been also narrated that Imam Ali ibn al-Husayn Zayn al-’Abidin (a.s.) used to repeat the following supplicatory prayer throughout this night:

اللّٰهُمَّ ارْزُقْنِي التَّجَافِيَ عَنْ دَارِ الْغُرُورِ وَ الْاِنَابَةَ اِلَى دَارِ الْخُلُودِ وَ الاسْتِعْدَادَ لِلْمَوْتِ قَبْلَ حُلُولِ الْفَوْتِ

LAST NIGHT OF RAMADHAN

A number of rites are advisably practiced at this blessed night. They are as follows:

First: It is recommended to bathe oneself at this night.

Second: It is recommended to visit the holy tomb of Imam al-Husayn (a.s.).

Third: It is recommended to recite Surahs al-An’am (No. 6), al-Kahf (No. 18), and Yasin (No. 36). It is also recommended to repeat the following imploration one hundred times:

اَسْتَغْفِرُ اللّٰهَ وَ اَتُوبُ اِلَيْهِ

Fourth: It is recommended to say the following supplicatory prayer that is reported by al-Kulayni from Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq(a.s.):

اللّٰهُمَّ هٰذَا شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي اَنْزَلْتَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنَ وَ قَدْ تَصَرَّمَ وَ اَعُوذُ بِوَجْهِكَ الْكَرِيمِ يَا رَبِّ اَنْ يَطْلُعَ الْفَجْرُ مِنْ لَيْلَتِي هَذِهِ اَوْ يَتَصَرَّمَ شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ وَ لَكَ قِبَلِي تَبِعَةٌ اَوْ ذَنْبٌ تُرِيدُ اَنْ تُعَذِّبَنِي بِهِ يَوْمَ اَلْقَاكَ

Fifth: It is recommended to say the previously mentioned supplicatory prayer that begins with the following:

يَا مُدَبِّرَ الْاُمُوْرِ يَابَاعِثَ فِيْ الْقُبُوْرِ...

Sixth: It is recommended to bid farewell to the month of Ramadan through the supplicatory prayers dedicated to this purpose and mentioned by al-Kulayni, al-Saduq, al-Mufid, al-Tusi, and Sayyid Ibn Tawus - may Allah be pleased with them all. Yet, the best farewell prayer in this respect may be the forty-fifth supplication of al-Sahifah al-Kamilah al-Sajjadiyyah, which begins with the following statement:

اَللّٰهُمَّ يَا مَنْ لَا يَرْغَبُ فِيْ الجَزَاءِ...

Sayyid Ibn Tawus has reported Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq(a.s.) as saying: Whoever bids farewell to the month of Ramadan with the following supplicatory prayer, Almighty Allah will forgive him before it dawns and will confer upon him with the bliss of submission before Him (i.e. Almighty Allah):

اللّٰهُمَّ لا تَجْعَلْهُ آخِرَ الْعَهْدِ مِنْ صِيَامِي لِشَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ وَ اَعُوذُ بِكَ اَنْ يَطْلُعَ فَجْرُ هَذِهِ اللَّيْلَةِ اِلا وَ قَدْ غَفَرْتَ لِي

Sayyid Ibn Tawus and Shaykh al-Saduq have both narrated the following on the authority of Jabir ibn ‘Abdullah al-Ansari:

I visited the Messenger of Allah (a.s.) on the last Friday of Ramadan. As he saw me, he said: O Jabir, this is the last Friday of Ramadan. You should thus bid farewell to it by saying the following:

اللّٰهُمَّ لا تَجْعَلْهُ آخِرَ الْعَهْدِ مِنْ صِيَامِنَا اِيَّاهُ فَاِنْ جَعَلْتَهُ فَاجْعَلْنِي مَرْحُوما وَ لا تَجْعَلْنِي مَحْرُوما

Verily, whoever says this supplicatory prayer will win one of the two good things; either attaining the next Ramadan or having the forgiveness and mercy of Almighty Allah.

Sayyid Ibn Tawus and al-Kaf’ami have reported the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) as saying, “At the last night of Ramadan, one may offer a prayer consisting of ten units at each of which Surah al-Faatehah is recited once and Surah al-Tawheedrepeated ten times. In the genuflection of the prayer (ruku’) and prostration (sujud), the following doxology may be repeated ten times:

سُبْحَانَ اللّٰهِ وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ وَ لا اِلَهَ اِلا اللّٰهُ وَ اللّٰهُ اَكْبَرُ

After each couple of units, one may say the Tashahhud and Taslim statements. After the accomplishment of the ten units, one may say the Taslim statement and repeat ISTEGFAAR one thousand times

After that, one may prostrate and say the following:

يَا حَيُّ يَا قَيُّومُ يَا ذَا الْجَلالِ وَ الْاِكْرَامِ يَا رَحْمَانَ الدُّنْيَا وَ الْآخِرَةِ وَ رَحِيمَهُمَا يَا اَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ يَا اِلَهَ الْاَوَّلِينَ وَ الْآخِرِينَ اغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَ تَقَبَّلْ مِنَّا صَلاتَنَا وَ صِيَامَنَا وَ قِيَامَنَا

The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) then continues, “I swear by Him Who has sent me with the truth as prophet, Archangel Gabriel has reported to me from Archangel Seraph who directly reports from Almighty Allah that one who offers that prayer will not raise his head from prostration before Almighty Allah forgives him, accepts his acts during the month of Ramadan, and overlooks his sins... etc.”

It is worth mentioning that other narrations have confirmed that this prayer is offered at the Night of ‘Id al-Fitr (i.e. the first night of Shawwal) with a little difference in the form of the supplicatory prayer.

THE 30TH OF RAMADHAN

For the last day of Ramadan, Sayyid Ibn Tawus has mentioned a supplicatory prayer that begins with:

الّلهم انّك ارحم‏ الرّاحمين ....

In most cases, the recitation of the Holy Qur’an is accomplished on the thirtieth of Ramadan; therefore, it is highly advisable to read the supplicatory prayer No. 42 of al-Sahifah al-Kamilah al-Sajjadiyyah.

It is also optional to say the following brief supplicatory prayer that is reported by Shaykh al-Tusi from Imam AliAmeer al-Momineen(a.s.):

اللّٰهُمَّ اشْرَحْ بِالْقُرْآنِ صَدْرِي وَ اسْتَعْمِلْ بِالْقُرْآنِ بَدَنِي وَ نَوِّرْ بِالْقُرْآنِ بَصَرِي وَ اَطْلِقْ بِالْقُرْآنِ لِسَانِي وَ اَعِنِّي عَلَيْهِ مَا اَبْقَيْتَنِي فَاِنَّهُ لا حَوْلَ وَ لا قُوَّةَ اِلا بِكَ.

It is recommended, too, to say the following supplicatory prayer that is reported from Imam AliAmeer al-Momineen(a.s.):

اللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّي اَسْاَلُكَ اِخْبَاتَ الْمُخْبِتِينَ وَ اِخْلاصَ الْمُوقِنِينَ وَ مُرَافَقَةَ الْاَبْرَارِ وَ اسْتِحْقَاقَ حَقَائِقِ الْاِيمَانِ وَ الْغَنِيمَةَ مِنْ كُلِّ بِرٍّ وَ السَّلامَةَ مِنْ كُلِّ اِثْمٍ وَ وُجُوبَ رَحْمَتِكَ وَ عَزَائِمَ مَغْفِرَتِكَ وَ الْفَوْزَ بِالْجَنَّةِ وَ النَّجَاةَ مِنَ النَّارِ
