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

DAY OF ARAFAT (9TH ZILHAJ)

Although it is not included with the feasts of Islam, the ninth of Dhu’l-Hijjah is one of the great feast days in Islam. On this day, Almighty Allah commanded His servants to obey and worship Him. He thus extended for them the tables of His benevolence and magnanimity. On this day too, Satan becomes abject, lowly, expelled, and angry more than any other day.

It is narrated that Imam Zayn al-’Abidin (a.s.), on the ninth of Dhu’l-Hijjah, heard someone begging people for financial aid. The Imam (a.s.) said to him, “Woe is you! On such a day, do you beg other than Almighty Allah? On this day, even fetuses in wombs are expected to be included with the mercy of Almighty Allah and they will be delighted.

The devotional acts on this day are as follows:

First: It is recommended to perform bathing on this day.

Second: It is recommended to visit the holy tomb of Imam al-Husayn (a.s.), for its reward is equal to the reward of one thousand times of Hajj, one thousand times of ‘Umrah, and one thousand times of jihad (holy war), and even more. The narrations entailing the great merits and rewards of visiting the holy tomb of Imam al-Husayn (a.s.) on the ninth of Dhu’l-Hijjah have been uninterruptedly reported. If fact, the reward of visiting the holy tomb of Imam al-Husayn (a.s.) and having the honor of attending therein is not less than the reward of attending on Mount ‘Arafat and even more.

The form of Ziyarah on this day will be cited in the coming book of Ziyarat.

Third: It is recommended to offer a two unit prayer immediately after the obligatory Asr Prayer before saying the supplicatory prayers of ‘Arafat. This prayer should be offered outdoors and it should include confessions of sins. One who offers this prayer will be granted the reward of attending on Mount ‘Arafat and having all sins forgiven.

After this prayer, it is recommended to begin with the acts and supplications of the ‘Arafat Day that are reported from the Holy Infallibles (a.s.). Although these acts and supplications are too numerous to be mentioned in this book, I will try to mention a number of them that is compatible to the size of this book:

In al-Misbah, al-Kaf’ami says that it is recommended to observe fasting on the ‘Arafat Day, unless fasting prevents from saying the supplications. It is also recommended to bathe oneself before midday and to visit the holy tomb of Imam al-Husayn (a.s.) on day and night. At midday, it is recommended to leave one’s house and offer the obligatory Zohr and Asr prayers outdoors with complete performance of their parts. After accomplishment, it is recommended to offer a two unit prayer reciting Surah al-Faatehah and Surah al-Tawheed in the first unit and Surah al-Faatehah and Surah al-Kafirun in the second. After that, it is recommended to offer a four unit prayer reciting at each unit Surah al-Faatehah once and repeating Surah al-Tawheed fifty times.

This is in fact the prayer of Imam AliAmeer al-Momineen(a.s.) that has been already mentioned in this book within the rites of Fridays.

In Iqbal al-A’mal, Sayyid Ibn Tawus says:

Say the following doxology that is reported from the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.):

سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي فِي السَّمَاءِ عَرْشُهُ سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي فِي الْاَرْضِ حُكْمُهُ سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي فِي الْقُبُورِ قَضَاؤُهُ سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي فِي الْبَحْرِ سَبِيلُهُ سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي فِي النَّارِ سُلْطَانُهُ سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي فِي الْجَنَّةِ رَحْمَتُهُ سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي فِي الْقِيَامَةِ عَدْلُهُ سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي رَفَعَ السَّمَاءَ سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي بَسَطَ الْاَرْضَ سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي لا مَلْجَاَ وَ لا مَنْجَى مِنْهُ اِلا اِلَيْهِ.

Then, repeat the following doxology one hundred times:

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

Then, repeat Surah al-Tawheed one hundred times, Ayah al-Kursi one hundred times, and invoke blessings upon Muhammad and his Household one hundred times.

Then, repeat the following doxological and supplicatory statements ten times each:

لا اِلَهَ اِلا اللّٰهُ وَحْدَهُ لا شَرِيكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَ لَهُ الْحَمْدُ يُحْيِي وَ يُمِيتُ وَ يُمِيتُ وَ يُحْيِي وَ هُوَ حَيٌّ لا يَمُوتُ بِيَدِهِ الْخَيْرُ وَ هُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ قَدِيرٌ.

اَسْتَغْفِرُ اللّٰهَ الَّذِي لا اِلَهَ اِلا هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ وَ اَتُوبُ اِلَيْهِ

يَا اللّٰهُ

يَا رَحْمَنُ

يَا رَحِيمُ

يَا بَدِيعَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ الْاَرْضِ يَا ذَا الْجَلالِ وَ الْاِكْرَامِ

يَا حَيُّ يَا قَيُّومُ

يَا حَنَّانُ يَا مَنَّانُ.

يَا لا اِلَهَ اِلا اَنْتَ

آمِينَ

Then, say the following:

اللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّي اَسْاَلُكَ يَا مَنْ هُوَ اَقْرَبُ اِلَيَّ مِنْ حَبْلِ الْوَرِيدِ يَا مَنْ يَحُولُ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَ قَلْبِهِ يَا مَنْ هُوَ بِالْمَنْظَرِ الْاَعْلَى وَ بِالْاُفُقِ الْمُبِينِ يَا مَنْ هُوَ الرَّحْمَنُ عَلَى الْعَرْشِ اسْتَوَى يَا مَنْ لَيْسَ كَمِثْلِهِ شَيْ‏ءٌ وَ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْبَصِيرُ اَسْاَلُكَ اَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

The, submit your needs and they will be granted, by the permission of Almighty Allah.

You may then say the following supplicatory prayer that is reported from Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) who said: If you wish to please Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad - peace be upon them all - you may say the following invocation:

اللّٰهُمَّ يَا اَجْوَدَ مَنْ اَعْطَى وَ يَا خَيْرَ مَنْ سُئِلَ وَ يَا اَرْحَمَ مَنِ اسْتُرْحِمَ اللّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ فِي الْاَوَّلِينَ وَ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ فِي الْآخِرِينَ وَ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ فِي الْمَلَاِ الْاَعْلَى وَ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ فِي الْمُرْسَلِينَ اللّٰهُمَّ اَعْطِ مُحَمَّدا وَ آلَهُ الْوَسِيلَةَ وَ الْفَضِيلَةَ وَ الشَّرَفَ وَ الرِّفْعَةَ وَ الدَّرَجَةَ الْكَبِيرَةَ اللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّي آمَنْتُ بِمُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ وَ لَمْ اَرَهُ فَلا تَحْرِمْنِي فِي [يَوْمِ‏] الْقِيَامَةِ رُؤْيَتَهُ وَ ارْزُقْنِي صُحْبَتَهُ وَ تَوَفَّنِي عَلَى مِلَّتِهِ وَ اسْقِنِي مِنْ حَوْضِهِ مَشْرَبا رَوِيّا سَائِغا هَنِيئا لا اَظْمَاُ بَعْدَهُ اَبَدا اِنَّكَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ قَدِيرٌ اللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّي آمَنْتُ بِمُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ وَ لَمْ اَرَهُ فَعَرِّفْنِي فِي الْجِنَانِ وَجْهَهُ اللّٰهُمَّ بَلِّغْ مُحَمَّدا صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ مِنِّي تَحِيَّةً كَثِيرَةً وَ سَلاما

You may then say the famous supplicatory prayer known as Dua Ummi-Dawud, which has been previously cited within the devotional acts of Rajab.

You may then say the following doxology whose reward is too much to be mentioned in this book:

سُبْحَانَ اللهِ قَبْلَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَسُبْحَانَ اللهِ بَعْدَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَسُبْحَانَ اللهِ مَعَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَسُبْحَانَ اللهِ يَبْقٰى رَبُّنَا وَيَفْنٰى كُلُّ اَحَدٍ، وَسُبْحَانَ اللهِ تَسْبِيْحًا يَفْضُلُ تَسْبِيْحَ الْمُسَبِّحِيْنَ فَضْلًا كَثِيرًا قَبْلَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَسُبْحَانَ اللهِ تَسْبِيْحًا يَفْضُلُ تَسْبِيْحَ الْمُسَبِّحِيْنَ فَضْلًا كَثِيْرًا بَعْدَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَسُبْحَانَ اللهِ تَسْبِيْحًا يَفْضُلُ تَسْبِيْحَ الْمُسَبِّحِيْنَ فَضْلًا كَثِيْرًا مَعَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَسُبْحَانَ اللهِ تَسْبِيْحًا يَفْضُلُ تَسْبِيْحَ الْمُسَبِّحِيْنَ فَضْلًا كَثِيْرًا لِرَبِّنَا الْبَاقِىْ وَيَفْنٰى كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَسُبْحَانَ اللهِ تَسْبِيْحًا لَا يُحْصٰى وَلَا يُدْرٰى وَلَا يُنْسٰى وَلَا يَبْلىٰ وَلَا يَفْنٰى وَلَيْسَ لَهُ مُنْتَهٰى، وَسُبْحَانَ اللهِ تَسْبِيْحًا يَدْوُمُ بِدَوَامِهِ وَيَبْقٰى بِبَقآئِهِ فِىْ سِنِى الْعَالَمِيْنَ وَشُهُوْرِ الدُّهُوْرِ وَاَيَّامِ الدُّنْيَا وَسَاعَاتِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ، وَسُبْحَانَ اللهِ اَبَدَ الْاَبَدِ وَمَعَ الْاَبَدِ مِمَّا لَا يُحْصِيْهِ الْعَدَدُ وَلَا يُفْنِيْهِ الْاَمَدُ وَلَا يَقْطَعَهُ الْاَبَدُ، وَتَبَارَكَ اللهُ اَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِيْنَ

وَالْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ قَبْلَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ بَعْدَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ مَعَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ يَبْقٰى رَبُّنَا وَيَفْنٰى كُلُّ اَحَدٍ، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ تَسْبِيْحًا يَفْضُلُ تَسْبِيْحَ الْمُسَبِّحِيْنَ فَضْلًا كَثِيرًا قَبْلَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ تَسْبِيْحًا يَفْضُلُ تَسْبِيْحَ الْمُسَبِّحِيْنَ فَضْلًا كَثِيْرًا بَعْدَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ تَسْبِيْحًا يَفْضُلُ تَسْبِيْحَ الْمُسَبِّحِيْنَ فَضْلًا كَثِيْرًا مَعَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ تَسْبِيْحًا يَفْضُلُ تَسْبِيْحَ الْمُسَبِّحِيْنَ فَضْلًا كَثِيْرًا لِرَبِّنَا الْبَاقِىْ وَيَفْنٰى كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ تَسْبِيْحًا لَا يُحْصٰى وَلَا يُدْرٰى وَلَا يُنْسٰى وَلَا يَبْلىٰ وَلَا يَفْنٰى وَلَيْسَ لَهُ مُنْتَهٰى، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ تَسْبِيْحًا يَدْوُمُ بِدَوَامِهِ وَيَبْقٰى بِبَقآئِهِ فِىْ سِنِى الْعَالَمِيْنَ وَشُهُوْرِ الدُّهُوْرِ وَاَيَّامِ الدُّنْيَا وَسَاعَاتِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ اَبَدَ الْاَبَدِ وَمَعَ الْاَبَدِ مِمَّا لَا يُحْصِيْهِ الْعَدَدُ وَلَا يُفْنِيْهِ الْاَمَدُ وَلَا يَقْطَعَهُ الْاَبَدُ، وَتَبَارَكَ اللهُ اَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِيْنَ

لَاِ الٰهَ اِلَّا اللهُ قَبْلَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَلَاِ الٰهَ اِلَّا اللهُ بَعْدَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَلَاِ الٰهَ اِلَّا اللهُ مَعَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَلَاِ الٰهَ اِلَّا اللهُ يَبْقٰى رَبُّنَا وَيَفْنٰى كُلُّ اَحَدٍ، وَلَاِ الٰهَ اِلَّا اللهُ تَسْبِيْحًا يَفْضُلُ تَسْبِيْحَ الْمُسَبِّحِيْنَ فَضْلًا كَثِيرًا قَبْلَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَلَاِ الٰهَ اِلَّا اللهُ تَسْبِيْحًا يَفْضُلُ تَسْبِيْحَ الْمُسَبِّحِيْنَ فَضْلًا كَثِيْرًا بَعْدَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَلَاِ الٰهَ اِلَّا اللهُ تَسْبِيْحًا يَفْضُلُ تَسْبِيْحَ الْمُسَبِّحِيْنَ فَضْلًا كَثِيْرًا مَعَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَلَاِ الٰهَ اِلَّا اللهُ تَسْبِيْحًا يَفْضُلُ تَسْبِيْحَ الْمُسَبِّحِيْنَ فَضْلًا كَثِيْرًا لِرَبِّنَا الْبَاقِىْ وَيَفْنٰى كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَلَاِ الٰهَ اِلَّا اللهُ تَسْبِيْحًا لَا يُحْصٰى وَلَا يُدْرٰى وَلَا يُنْسٰى وَلَا يَبْلىٰ وَلَا يَفْنٰى وَلَيْسَ لَهُ مُنْتَهٰى، وَلَاِ الٰهَ اِلَّا اللهُ تَسْبِيْحًا يَدْوُمُ بِدَوَامِهِ وَيَبْقٰى بِبَقآئِهِ فِىْ سِنِى الْعَالَمِيْنَ وَشُهُوْرِ الدُّهُوْرِ وَاَيَّامِ الدُّنْيَا وَسَاعَاتِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ، وَلَاِ الٰهَ اِلَّا اللهُ اَبَدَ الْاَبَدِ وَمَعَ الْاَبَدِ مِمَّا لَا يُحْصِيْهِ الْعَدَدُ وَلَا يُفْنِيْهِ الْاَمَدُ وَلَا يَقْطَعَهُ الْاَبَدُ، وَتَبَارَكَ اللهُ اَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِيْنَ

وَاللهُ اَكْبَرُ قَبْلَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَاللهُ اَكْبَرُ بَعْدَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَاللهُ اَكْبَرُ مَعَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَاللهُ اَكْبَرُ يَبْقٰى رَبُّنَا وَيَفْنٰى كُلُّ اَحَدٍ، وَاللهُ اَكْبَرُ تَسْبِيْحًا يَفْضُلُ تَسْبِيْحَ الْمُسَبِّحِيْنَ فَضْلًا كَثِيرًا قَبْلَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَاللهُ اَكْبَرُ تَسْبِيْحًا يَفْضُلُ تَسْبِيْحَ الْمُسَبِّحِيْنَ فَضْلًا كَثِيْرًا بَعْدَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَاللهُ اَكْبَرُ تَسْبِيْحًا يَفْضُلُ تَسْبِيْحَ الْمُسَبِّحِيْنَ فَضْلًا كَثِيْرًا مَعَ كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَاللهُ اَكْبَرُ تَسْبِيْحًا يَفْضُلُ تَسْبِيْحَ الْمُسَبِّحِيْنَ فَضْلًا كَثِيْرًا لِرَبِّنَا الْبَاقِىْ وَيَفْنٰى كُلِّ اَحَدٍ، وَاللهُ اَكْبَرُ تَسْبِيْحًا لَا يُحْصٰى وَلَا يُدْرٰى وَلَا يُنْسٰى وَلَا يَبْلىٰ وَلَا يَفْنٰى وَلَيْسَ لَهُ مُنْتَهٰى، وَاللهُ اَكْبَرُ تَسْبِيْحًا يَدْوُمُ بِدَوَامِهِ وَيَبْقٰى بِبَقآئِهِ فِىْ سِنِى الْعَالَمِيْنَ وَشُهُوْرِ الدُّهُوْرِ وَاَيَّامِ الدُّنْيَا وَسَاعَاتِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ، وَاللهُ اَكْبَرُ اَبَدَ الْاَبَدِ وَمَعَ الْاَبَدِ مِمَّا لَا يُحْصِيْهِ الْعَدَدُ وَلَا يُفْنِيْهِ الْاَمَدُ وَلَا يَقْطَعَهُ الْاَبَدُ، وَتَبَارَكَ اللهُ اَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِيْنَ

You may then say the famous supplicatory prayer, which begins with the following statement:

اللّهم من تعبّا و تهيا

This supplicatory prayer has been previously mentioned within the rites at Friday nights.

You may then say the supplicatory prayer that has been mentioned by Shaykh al-Tusi in Misbah al-Mutahajjid. It is ascribed to Imam Zayn al-’Abidin (a.s.) and it begins with the following statement:

اللّهم انت اللّه ربّ العالمين

It is worth mentioning that this supplicatory prayer, which has not been cited herein because of its lengthiness, is also advisably said during the ritual of al-wuquf ‘ala‘arafah (Halting At Mount ‘Arafat), which is one of the rituals of Hajj.

It is also highly advisable to say the forty-seventh supplication of al-Sahifah al-Kamilah al-Sajjadiyyah. It is recommended to say the supplicatory prayer, which comprises all the requirements of worldly and religious life, with reverence.
