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

سورة العادياتSURAH AL ADIYAT

There are 11 verses in this surah and it was revealed in Makkah. In a tradition from the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) it is said that the reward for reciting this surah is equivalent to ten times the number who are present in ‘Arafah and Muzdalifa at the time of Hajj.

Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) has said that those people who recite surah al-‘Aadiyaat everyday will be counted from the companions of Ameerul Mu’mineen (a.s.) and it has also been narrated that reciting this surah daily carries the reward of reciting the entire Qur’an. If a person has many creditors, recitation of this surah will help clear his debts.

If recited by a person in fear, this surah brings him to safety; if recited by a hungry person, it helps in his finding sustenance; if recited by a thirsty person, his thirst will be quenched.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

وَالْعَادِيَاتِ ضَبْحاً (1) فَالْمُورِيَاتِ قَدْحاً (2) فَالْمُغِيرَاتِ صُبْحاً (3) فَاَثَرْنَ بِهِ نَقْعاً (4) فَوَسَطْنَ بِهِ جَمْعاً (5) اِنَّ الْاِنسَانَ لِرَبِّهِ لَكَنُودٌ (6) وَاِنَّهُ عَلَى ذَلِكَ لَشَهِيدٌ (7) وَاِنَّهُ لِحُبِّ الْخَيْرِ لَشَدِيدٌ (8) اَفَلَا يَعْلَمُ اِذَا بُعْثِرَ مَا فِي الْقُبُورِ (9)‏ وَحُصِّلَ مَا فِي الصُّدُورِ (10) اِنَّ رَبَّهُم بِهِمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ لَّخَبِيرٌ (11)

سورة التكاثرSURAH AL TAKASUR

This surah has 8 ayaat and it was revealed in Makkah. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) said that whoever recites this surah before going to sleep at night will be saved from the torments of the grave. If this surah is recited in faraa’idh prayers, the reciter will get the reward of a hundred martyrs. If recited in the nawafil prayers, he will get the reward of fifty martyrs.

It is especially recommended to recite surah at-Takathur in the ‘Asr prayers and the person who does this remains under the protection of Allah until the day ends. Recitation of this surah is a cure from headaches.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

اَلْهَاكُمُ التَّكَاثُرُ (1) حَتَّى زُرْتُمُ الْمَقَابِرَ (2) كَلَّا سَوْفَ تَعْلَمُونَ (3) ثُمَّ كَلَّا سَوْفَ تَعْلَمُونَ (4) كَلَّا لَوْ تَعْلَمُونَ عِلْمَ الْيَقِينِ (5) لَتَرَوُنَّ الْجَحِيمَ (6) ثُمَّ لَتَرَوُنَّهَا عَيْنَ الْيَقِينِ (7) ثُمَّ لَتُسْاَلُنَّ يَوْمَئِذٍ عَنِ النَّعِيمِ (8)

سورة الكافرونSURAH AL KAFIRUN

It is narrated in the traditions that reward (sawab) of reciting this sura is equal to recitation of ¼ Quran.

Imam Jafar e Sadiq (a.s.) has said, “ When a person recites Surat al Kaaferoon and Iqlas during the mandatory prayers, Allah will pardon his parents and siblings. If he is a callous( Shaqi) person, Allah will remove his name from the roster of such persons and put him on the list of the virtuous. Allah will give him felicity in the worldly affairs, he will die the death of a martyr and will be raised a martyr on the Day of Reckoning.”

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

قُلْ يَا اَيُّهَا الْكَافِرُونَ (1) لَا اَعْبُدُ مَا تَعْبُدُونَ (2) وَلَا اَنتُمْ عَابِدُونَ مَا اَعْبُدُ (3) وَلَا اَنَا عَابِدٌ مَّا عَبَدتُّمْ (4) وَلَا اَنتُمْ عَابِدُونَ مَا اَعْبُدُ (5) لَكُمْ دِينُكُمْ وَلِيَ دِينِ (6)

سورة النصرSURAH AL NASR

Reciting this verse in the prayers protects one from the machinations of his enemies.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

اِذَا جَاء نَصْرُ اللّٰهِ وَالْفَتْحُ (1) وَرَاَيْتَ النَّاسَ يَدْخُلُونَ فِي دِينِ اللّٰهِ اَفْوَاجاً (2) فَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ وَاسْتَغْفِرْهُ اِنَّهُ كَانَ تَوَّاباً (3)

سورة الإخلاصSURAH AL IKHLAAS

It is narrated in the tradition that the reward of reciting this sura is equal to recitation of 1/3 of the holy Quran.

Imam Jafar e Sadiq (a.s.) has said that if a person recites this verse once, Allah will shower Blessings on him. When the person recites it twice, Allah will Bless his children. If the person recites the verse thrice, Allah will also Bless the person’s friends. Thus, the more a person recites this verse, the more he shall be Blessed by Allah. For reciting the verse a thousand times, the person will get the august status of a martyr.

While the Prophet of Allah (a.s.) was offering the funeral prayer of Saad bin Ma-aaz, he noticed that seventy thousand angels were present at the prayer. He asked Jibraeel the reason for this honor to the dead person. Jibraeel replied that he used to recite Sura e Iqlas frequently.

Imam Jafar e Sadiq (a.s.) has said, “ If you desire Allah’s protection from your enemies, recite Sura e Iqlas on your six sides, that is, right, left, up, down , front and back.”

And when you go to confront a superior, recite this verse thrice in front of the person and at every recitation close one finger of you left hand. With Allah’s help you will come out successful!”

Then the Imam (a.s.) said, “ If a person has not recited the Surat al Iqlas for one week, his Reckoning will be along with the accursed abu Lahab”

The Imam (a.s.) further said, “ If one is suffering from an ailment, and doesn’t take help from this verse, then he is a denizen of the Hell.

Also said, “ If your believe in Allah and the Day of Judgement, then after the mandatory prayers don’t forget to recite Sura e Iqlas. Allah will pardon the sins of your forbears and your offspring.

Hazrat Ali (a.s.) has said, “ A person who recites the Sura e Iqlas eleven times after the mandatory morning prayer, the Satan cannot make him commit a sin even if he tempts the person a hundred thousand times.”

Also Ameer al Momineen (a..s.) said,” When a person recites the verse in the night, Allah will depute fifty thousand angels to keep vigil the whole night.”

Imam Jafar e Sadiq (a.s) has said, “ When a person reads Sura e Iqlas it is like reading a third of the Quran, a third of Torah , Injeel and Zaboor.”

Also the Imam (a.s.) said, “ Allah has subjugated fever to Hazrat Fatima Zehra (a.s.) in lieu of the Garden of Fadak. Therefore if a friend of the Ahl al Bayt recites Sura e Iqlas a thousand times and blows over a person suffering from high fever, the person will recover with Allah’s Help.”

Imam Reza (a.s.) has said, “ If one sits near a sick person, recites Surat al Fateha, Al Iqlas, Qul Aooz berabinnaas, Qul Aoozo berabbil falaq and touches the face of the ailing person, Insha Allah, the sickness will vannish.”

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

قُلْ هُوَ اللّٰهُ اَحَدٌ (1) اللّٰهُ الصَّمَدُ (2) لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ (3) وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُ كُفُواً اَحَدٌ (4)

سورة الفلقSURAH AL FALAQ

This is a ‘Madani’ surah and it has 5 ayaat. It is narrated from the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) that whoever recites this surah in the month of Ramadhan in any of his prayers, it is as if he has fasted in Makkah and he will get the reward for performing Hajj and ‘Umra.

Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (a.s.) said that in the prayer of Shafa’a (in Salaatul-layl) one should recite surah al-Falaq in the first rak’aat and an-Naas in the second.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

قُلْ اَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ الْفَلَقِ (1) مِن شَرِّ مَا خَلَقَ (2) وَمِن شَرِّ غَاسِقٍ اِذَا وَقَبَ (3) وَمِن شَرِّ النَّفَّاثَاتِ فِي الْعُقَدِ (4) وَمِن شَرِّ حَاسِدٍ اِذَا حَسَدَ (5)

سورة الناسSURAH AL NAS

This surah was revealed in Madinah and it has 6 ayaat. Surah an-Naas and al-Falaq are together called Ma’udhatayn. Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) has said that whoever recites this surah in his house every night, will be kept safe from Jinnaat and the evil designs of Shaitan.

If this surah is put around the neck of a child as a talisman, the child will be protected from Jinnat. Reciting the Ma’udhatayn before sleeping is a means of safety and if recited on any part of the body that is paining, the pain will be relieved.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

قُلْ اَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ النَّاسِ (1) مَلِكِ النَّاسِ (2) اِلَهِ النَّاسِ (3) مِن شَرِّ الْوَسْوَاسِ الْخَنَّاسِ (4) الَّذِي يُوَسْوِسُ فِي صُدُورِ النَّاسِ (5) مِنَ الْجِنَّةِ وَ النَّاسِ (6)

FIRST SECTION: TAQIBAT AFTER PRAYERS AND DUAS OF THE DAYS OF WEEK

FIRST CHAPTER

GENERAL TAQIBAAT

The following prayers and recommended devotional acts have been quoted from Shaykh al-Tusi’s famous book of Misbah al-Mutahajjid and other reference books.

After you say the Taslim statement - the closing part of the ritual prayers - and accomplish your prayer, repeat the Takbir statement (i.e. Allahuakbar; Allah is the Greatest) three times while raising your hands to the level of your ears and then say:

لا اِلهَ اِلا اللّهُ اِلهاً واحِداً وَ نَحْنُ لَهُ مُسْلِمُونَ لا اِلهَ اِلا اللّهُ وَ لا نَعْبُدُ اِلاّ اِيّاهُ مُخْلِصينَ لَهُ الدّينَ وَ لَوْ كَرِهَ الْمُشْرِكُونَ لا اِلهَ اِلا اللّهُ رَبُّنا وَ رَبُّ آبآئِنَا الاَوَّلينَ لا اِلهَ اِلا اللّهُ وَحْدَهُ وَحْدَهُ وَحْدَهُ اَنْجَزَ وَعْدَهُ وَ نَصَرَ عَبْدَهُ وَ اَعَزَّ جُنْدَهُ وَ هَزَمَ الاْحْزابَ وَحْدَهُ فَلَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَ لَهُ الْحَمْدُ يُحْيى وَ يُميتُ وَ يُميتُ وَ يُحْيى وَ هُوَ حَىُّ لايَمُوتُ بِيَدِهِ الْخَيْرُ وَ هُوَ عَلى كُلِّشَىْءٍ قَديرٌ

Then, say the following:

اَسْتَغْفِرُ اللّهَ الَّذى لا اِلهَ اِلاّ هُوَ الْحَىُّ الْقَيُّومُ وَ اَتُوبُ اِلَيْهِ

Then, say the following:

اَللّهُمَّ اهْدِنى مِنْ عِنْدِكَ وَ اَفِضْ عَلَىَّ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ وَ انْشُرْ عَلَىَّ مِنْ رَحْمَتِكَ وَ اَنْزِلْ عَلَىَّ مِنْ بَرَكاتِكَ سُبْحانَكَ لا اِلهَ اِلاّ اَنْتَ اِغْفِرْ لى ذُنُوبى كُلَّها جَميعاً فَاِنَّهُ لا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ كُلَّها جَميعاً اِلاّ اَنْتَ اَللّهُمَّ اِنّى اَسْئَلُكَ مِنْ كُلِّ خَيْرٍ اَحاطَ بِهِ عِلْمُكَ وَ اَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ كُلِّ شَرٍّ اَحاطَ بِهِ عِلْمُكَ .

اَللّهُمَّ اِنّى اَسْئَلُكَ عافِيَتَكَ فى اُمُورى كُلِّها وَ اَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ خِزْىِ الدُّنْيا وَعَذابِ الاْخِرَةِ وَاَعُوذُ بِوَجْهِكَ الْكَريمِ وَ عِزَّتِكَ الَّتى لا تُرامُ وَ قُدْرَتِكَ الَّتى لا يَمْتَنِعُ مِنْها شَىْءٌ مِنْ شَرِّ الدُّنْيا وَ الاْخِرَةِ وَ مِنْ شَرِّ الاَوْجاعِ كُلِّها وَمِنْ شَرِّ كُلِّ دابَّةٍ اَنْتَ اخِذٌ بِناصِيَتِها اِنَّ رَبّى عَلى صِراطٍ مُسْتَقيمٍ وَ لا حَوْلَ وَ لا قُوَّةَ اِلاّ بِاللّهِ الْعَلِىِّ الْعَظيمِ تَوَّكَلْتُ عَلَى الْحَىِّ الَّذى لا يَمُوتُ وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلّهِ الَّذى لَمْ يَتَّخِذْ وَلَداً وَ لَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ شَريكٌ فِى الْمُلْكِ وَ لَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ وَلِىُّ مِنَ الذُّلِّ وَ كَبِّرْهُ تَكْبيراً

Then, utter the Tasbih al-Zahra’ litany (which is discussed in the attached book of al-Baqiyat al-Salihat).

Before you move from your prayer-place, repeat the following litany ten times:

اَشْهَدُ اَنْ لا اِلهَ اِلا اللّهُ وَحْدَهُ لا شَريكَ لَهُ اِلهاً واحِداً اَحَداً فَرْداً صَمَداً لَمْ يَتَّخِذْ صاحِبَةً وَ لا وَلَداً

It is narrated that a great reward is obtained by saying this litany, especially after the Dawn (Fajr) and Evening (Isha’) obligatory Prayers and at sunrise and sunset.

Then, say the following:

سُبْحانَ اللّهِ كُلَّما سَبَّحَ اللّهَ شَى ءٌ وَ كَما يُحِبُّ اللّهُ اَنْ يُسَبَّحَ وَ كَما هُوَ اَهْلُهُ وَ كما يَنْبَغى لِكَرَمِ وَجْهِهِ وَ عِزِّ جَلالِهِ وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلّهِ كُلَّما حَمِدَ اللّهَ شَى ءٌ وَ كَما يُحِبُّ اللّهُ اَنْ يُحْمَدَ وَ كَما هُوَ اَهْلُهُ وَ كَما يَنْبَغى لِكَرَمِ وَجْهِهِ وَ عِزِّ جَلالِهِ وَ لا اِلهَ اِلا اللّهُ كُلَّما هَلَّلَ اللّهَ شَى ءٌ وَ كَما يُحِبُّ اللّهُ اَنْ يُهَلَّلَ وَ كَما هُوَ اَهْلُهُ وَ كَما يَنْبَغى لِكَرَمِ وَجْهِهِ وَ عِزِّ جَلالِهِ.

وَ اللّهُ اَكْبَرُ كُلَّما كَبَّرَ اللّهَ شَى ءٌ وَ كَما يُحِبُّ اللّهُ اَنْ يُكَبَّرَ وَ كَما هُوَ اَهْلُهُ وَ كَما يَنْبَغى لِكَرَمِ وَجْهِهِ وَ عِزِّ جَلالِهِ سُبْحانَ اللّهِ وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلّهِ وَ لا اِلهَ اِلا اللّهُ وَ اللّهُ اَكْبَرُ عَلى كُلِّ نِعْمَةٍ اَنْعَمَ بِها عَلَىَّ وَ عَلى كُلِّ اَحَدٍ مِنْ خَلْقِهِ مِمَّنْ كانَ اَوْ يَكُونُ اِلى يَوْمِ الْقِيمَةِ اَللّهُمَّ اِنّى اَسْئَلُكَ اَنْ تُصَلِّىَ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَسْئَلُكَ مِنْ خَيْرِ ما اَرْجُو وَ خَيْرِ ما لا اَرْجُو وَ اَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ ما اَحْذَرُ وَ مِنْ شَرِّ ما لا اَحْذَرُ.

Then, recite the following Quranic texts:

(1) Surahal-Hamd (i.e. al-Faatehah No. 1), (2) Ayah al-Kursi (2:255-257), (3) Verses of Bearing Witness (Ayat al-Shahadah; 3:18-19), (4) Verses of Kingdom (Ayah al-Mulk; 3:26-27), and (5) Verses of Subservience (Ayah al-Sakharah 7:54-56).

Then, repeat the following verses (Surah al-Saaffaat 37:180-183) three times:

سُبْحانَ رَبِّكَ رَبِّ الْعِزَّةِ عَمّا يَصِفُونَ وَ سَلامٌ عَلَى الْمُرْسَلينَ وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلّهِ رَبِّ الْعالَمينَ

Then, repeat the following supplicatory prayer three times:

اَللّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ الِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اجْعَلْ لى مِنْ اَمْرى فَرَجا وَ مَخْرَجا وَ ارْزُقْنى مِنْ حَيْثُ اَحْتَسِبُ وَ مِنْ حَيْثُ لا اَحْتَسِبُ

This supplicatory prayer was taught by Archangel Gabriel to Prophet Yusuf (Joseph) - peace be upon him - when he was in prison.

Then, hold your beard with your right hand, raise your left hand towards the sky, and repeat the following supplicatory prayer seven times:

يا رَبَّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ الِ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ الِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ عَجِّلْ فَرَجَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

Keeping on the same situation, repeat the following supplicatory prayer three times:

يا ذَا الْجَلالِ وَ الاِكْرامِ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ الِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ ارْحَمْنى وَ اَجِرْنى مِنَ النّارِ.

After repeating Surah al-Ikhlaas (or al-Tawheed; No. 112) twelve times, say the following supplicatory prayer:

اَللّهُمَّ اِنّى اَسْئَلُكَ بِاسْمِكَ الْمَكْنُونِ الْمَخْزُونِ الطّاهِرِ الطُّهْرِ الْمُبارَكِ وَ اَسْئَلُكَ بِاسْمِكَ الْعَظيمِ وَ سُلْطانِكَ الْقَديمِ يا واهِبَ الْعَطايا وَ يا مُطْلِقَ الاُسارى وَ يا فَكّاكَ الرِّقابِ مِنَ النّارِ اَسْئَلُكَ اَنْ تُصَلِّىَ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَنْ تُعْتِقَ رَقَبَتى مِنَ النّارِ وَ اَنْ تُخْرِجَنى مِنَ الدُّنْيا سالِماً وَ [اَنْ] تُدْخِلَنِى الْجَنَّةَ امِناً وَ اَنْ تَجْعَلَ دُعاَّئى اَوَّلَهُ فَلاحاً وَ اَوْسَطَهُ نَجاحاً وَ اخِرَهُ صَلاحاً اِنَّكَ اَنْتَ عَلاّمُ الْغُيُوبِ

According to al-Sahifah al-Alawiyyah (a collection of Imam Ali’s supplications), the following supplicatory prayer is advisably said after the obligatory prayers:

يا مَنْ لا يَشْغَلُهُ سَمْعٌ عَنْ سَمْعٍ وَ يا مَنْ لا يُغَلِّطُهُ السّاَّئِلُونَ وَ يا مَنْ لايُبْرِمُهُ اِلْحاحُ المُلِحِّينَ اَذِقْنى بَرْدَ عَفْوِكَ وَ حَلاوَةَ رَحْمَتِكَ وَ مَغْفِرَتِكَ

You may also say the following supplicatory prayer:

اِلهى هذِهِ صَلوتى صَلَّيْتُها لا لِحاجَةٍ مِنْكَ اِلَيْها وَ لا رَغْبَةٍ مِنْكَ فيها اِلاّ تَعْظيماً وَ طاعَةً وَاِجابَةً لَكَ اِلى ما اَمَرْتَنى بِهِ اِلهى اِنْ كانَ فيها خَلَلٌ اَوْ نَقْصٌ مِنْ رُكُوعِها اَوْ سُجُودِها فَلا تُؤ اخِذْنى وَ تَفَضَّلْ عَلَىَّ بِالْقَبُولِ وَ الْغُفْرانِ .

After accomplishment of the ritual prayers, you may also say the following supplicatory prayer, which the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) taught to Imam AliAmeer al-Momineen(a.s.) for developing memory:

سُبْحانَ مَنْ لايَعْتَدى عَلى اَهْلِ مَمْلَكَتِهِ سُبْحانَ مَنْ لا يَاْخُذُ اَهْلَ الاْرْضِ بِاَلْوانِ الْعَذابِ سُبْحانَ الرَّؤُفِ الرَّحيمِ اَللّهُمَّ اجْعَلْ لى فى قَلْبى نُوراً وَ بَصَراً وَ فَهْماً وَ عِلْماً اِنَّكَ عَلى كُلِّشَى ءٍ قَديرٌ .

Al-Kaf’ami, in his book of al-Misbah, cites that it is advisable to repeat the following supplicatory prayer three times after obligatory prayers:

اُعيذُ نَفْسى وَ دينى وَ اَهْلى وَ مالى وَ وَلَدى وَ اِخْوانى فى دينى وَ ما رَزَقَنى رَبّى وَ خَواتيمَ عَمَلى وَ مَنْ يَعْنينى اَمْرُهُ بِاللّهِ الْواحِدِ الاْحَدِ الصَّمَدِ الَّذى لَمْ يَلِدْ وَ لَمْ يُولَدْ وَ لَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ كُفُواً اَحَدٌ وَ بِرَبِّ الْفَلَقِ مِنْ شَرِّ ما خَلَقَ وَ مِنْ شَرِّ غاسِقٍ اِذا وَقَبَ وَ مِنْ شَرِّ النَّفّاثاتِ فِى الْعُقَدِ وَ مِنْ شَرِّ حاسِدٍ اِذا حَسَدَ وَ بِرَبِّ النّاسِ مَلِكِ النّاسِ اِلهِ النّاسِ مِنْ شَرِّ الْوَسْواسِ الْخَنّاسِ الَّذى يُوَسْوِسُ فى صُدُورِ النّاسِ مِنَ الْجِنَّةِ وَ النّاسِ.

It is narrated in an inscription handwritten by Shaykh al-Shahid that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) said: Whoever desires that Almighty Allah will not show him his evildoings (that he did in this world) on the Resurrection Day and will not open the record of his evildoings, should say the following supplicatory prayer after each obligatory prayer:

اَللّهُمَّ اِنَّ مَغْفِرَتَكَ اَرْجى مِنْ عَمَلى وَ اِنَّ رَحْمَتَكَ اَوْسَعُ مِنْ ذَنْبى اَللّهُمَّ اِنْ كانَ ذَنْبى عِنْدَكَ عَظيماً فَعَفْوُكَ اَعْظَمُ مِنْ ذَنْبى اَللّهُمَّ اِنْ لَمْ اَكُنْ اَهْلا اَنْ اَبْلُغَ رَحْمَتَكَ فَرَحْمَتُكَ اَهْلٌ اَنْ تَبْلُغَنى وَ تَسَعَنى لِاَنَّها وَسِعَتْ كُلَّشَىْءٍ بِرَحْمَتِكَ يااَرْحَمَ الرّاحِمينَ

Ibn Baabwayh (i.e. Shaykh al-Saduq) holds that one should say the following litany immediately after uttering Tasbih al-Zahra’:

اَللّهُمَّ اَنْتَ السَّلامُ وَ مِنْكَ السَّلامُ وَ لَكَ السَّلامُ وَ اِلَيْكَ يَعُودُ السَّلامُ سُبْحانَ رَبِّكَ رَبِّ الْعِزَّةِ عَمّا يَصِفُونَ وَ سَلامٌ عَلَى الْمُرْسَلينَ وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلّهِ رَبِّ الْعالَمينَ اَلسَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ اَيُّهَا النَّبِىُّ وَ رَحْمَةُ اللّهِ وَ بَرَكاتُهُ السَّلامُ عَلَى الاْئِمَّةِ الْهادينَ الْمَهْدِيّينَ اَلسَّلامُ عَلى جَميعِ اَنْبِياَّءِ اللّهِ وَ رُسُلِهِ وَ مَلاَّئِكَتِهِ اَلسَّلامُ عَلَيْنا وَ عَلى عِبادِ اللّهِ الصّالِحينَ اَلسَّلامُ عَلى عَلِىٍّ اَميرِ الْمُؤْمِنينَ، اَلسَّلامُ عَلَى الْحَسَنِ وَ الْحُسَيْنِ سَيِّدَىْ شَبابِ اَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ اَجْمَعينَ اَلسَّلامُ عَلى عَلِىِّ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ زَيْنِ الْعابِدينَ اَلسَّلامُ عَلى مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَلِىٍّ باقِرِ عِلْمِ النَّبِيّينَ اَلسَّلامُ عَلى جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ الصّادِقِ اَلسَّلام عَلى مُوسَى بْنِ جَعْفَرٍ الْكاظِمِ اَلسَّلامُ عَلى عَلِىِّ بْنِ مُوسَى الرِّضا اَلسَّلامُ عَلى مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَلِىٍّ الْجَوادِ اَلسَّلامُ عَلى عَلِىٍّ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ الْهادى اَلسَّلامُ عَلَى الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِي الزَّكِىِّ الْعَسْكَرِىِّ اَلسَّلامُ عَلَى الْحُجَّةِ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ الْقاَّئِمِ الْمَهْدِىِّ صَلَواتُ اللّهِ عَلَيْهِمْ اَجْمَعينَ.

After saying this litany, one may pray Almighty Allah to grant him all his personal desires.

Shaykh al-Kaf’ami has also said that one should utter the following litany after the accomplishment of the obligatory prayers:

رَضيتُ بِاللّهِ رَبّاً وبِالاِسْلامِ ديناً وَ بِمُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّى اللّهُ عَلَيْهِ وآلِهِ نَبِيّاً وَ بِعَلِىٍّ اِماماً وَ بِالْحَسَنِ وَ الْحُسَيْنِ وَ عَلِىٍّ وَ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ جَعْفَرٍ وَ مُوسى وَ عَلِىٍّ وَ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ عَلِىٍّ وَ الْحَسَنِ وَ الْخَلَفِ الصّالِحِ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلامُ اَئِمَّةً وَ سادَةً وَ قادَةً بِهِمْ اَتَوَلّى وَ مِنْ اَعْداَّئِهِمْ اَتَبَرَّءُ

You should then repeat the following supplicatory prayer three times:

اَللّهُمَّ اِنّى اَسْئَلُكَ الْعَفْوَ وَالْعافِيَةَ وَ الْمُعافاةَ فِى الدُّنْيا وَ الاْخِرَةِ .

SECOND CHAPTER

TAQIBAAT E NAMAZ E ZUHR

Subsequent to the Noon (Zohr) Prayer, say the following supplicatory prayer, as is quoted from Misbah al-Mutahajjid:

لا اِلَهَ اِلا اللَّهُ الْعَظِيمُ الْحَلِيمُ لا اِلَهَ اِلا اللَّهُ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْكَرِيمُ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ اللَّهُمَّ اِنِّي اَسْاَلُكَ مُوجِبَاتِ رَحْمَتِكَ وَ عَزَائِمَ مَغْفِرَتِكَ وَ الْغَنِيمَةَ مِنْ كُلِّ بِرٍّ وَ السَّلامَةَ مِنْ كُلِّ اِثْمٍ اللَّهُمَّ لا تَدَعْ لِي ذَنْبا اِلا غَفَرْتَهُ وَ لا هَمّا اِلا فَرَّجْتَهُ وَ لا سُقْماً اِلا شَفَيْتَهُ وَ لا عَيْباً اِلا سَتَرْتَهُ وَ لا رِزْقاً اِلا بَسَطْتَهُ وَ لا خَوْفاً اِلا آمَنْتَهُ وَ لا سُوءاً اِلا صَرَفْتَهُ وَ لا حَاجَةً هِيَ لَكَ رِضاً وَ لِيَ فِيهَا صَلاحٌ اِلا قَضَيْتَهَا يَااَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ، آمِينَ رَبَّ الْعَالَمِينَ

You may then repeat the following litany ten times:

بِاللّٰهِ اعْتَصَمْتُ وَ بِاللّٰهِ اَثِقُ وَ عَلَى اللّٰهِ اَتَوَكَّلُ

You may then say the following supplicatory prayer:

اللَّهُمَّ اِنْ عَظُمَتْ ذُنُوبِي فَاَنْتَ اَعْظَمُ وَ اِنْ كَبُرَ [كَثُرَ] تَفْرِيطِي فَاَنْتَ اَكْبَرُ وَ اِنْ دَامَ بُخْلِي فَاَنْتَ اَجْوَدُ اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِي عَظِيمَ ذُنُوبِي بِعَظِيمِ عَفْوِكَ وَ كَثِيرَ تَفْرِيطِي بِظَاهِرِ كَرَمِكَ وَ اقْمَعْ بُخْلِي بِفَضْلِ جُودِكَ اللَّهُمَّ مَا بِنَا مِنْ نِعْمَةٍ فَمِنْكَ لا اِلَهَ اِلا اَنْتَ اَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَ اَتُوبُ اِلَيْكَ

TAQIBAAT E NAMAZ E ASR

As quoted from Misbah al-Mutahajjid

Subsequent to the Afternoon (Asr) Prayer, say the following supplicatory prayer, as is quoted from Misbah al-Mutahajjid:

اَسْتَغْفِرُ اللَّهَ الَّذِي لا اِلَهَ اِلا هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ الرَّحْمَنُ الرَّحِيمُ ذُو [ذَا] الْجَلالِ وَ الْاِكْرَامِ وَ اَسْاَلُهُ اَنْ يَتُوبَ عَلَيَّ تَوْبَةَ عَبْدٍ ذَلِيلٍ خَاضِعٍ فَقِيرٍ بَائِسٍ مِسْكِينٍ مُسْتَكِينٍ مُسْتَجِيرٍ لا يَمْلِكُ لِنَفْسِهِ نَفْعا وَ لا ضَرّا وَ لا مَوْتا وَ لا حَيَاةً وَ لا نُشُورا

You may then say the following supplicatory prayer:

اللَّهُمَّ اِنِّي اَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ نَفْسٍ لا تَشْبَعُ وَ مِنْ قَلْبٍ لا يَخْشَعُ وَ مِنْ عِلْمٍ لا يَنْفَعُ، وَ مِنْ صَلاةٍ لا تُرْفَعُ وَ مِنْ دُعَاءٍ لا يُسْمَعُ اللَّهُمَّ اِنِّي اَسْاَلُكَ الْيُسْرَ بَعْدَ الْعُسْرِ وَ الْفَرَجَ بَعْدَ الْكَرْبِ وَ الرَّخَاءَ بَعْدَ الشِّدَّةِ اللَّهُمَّ مَا بِنَا مِنْ نِعْمَةٍ فَمِنْكَ لا اِلَهَ اِلا اَنْتَ اَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَ اَتُوبُ اِلَيْكَ.

Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq(a.s.) is reported as saying: Anyone who implores Almighty Allah’s forgiveness (i.e. Astaghfirullah) seventy times after the Asr Prayer will have seven hundred of his sins forgiven.

Imam Muhammad al-Taqi (al-Jawad) (a.s.) is also reported as saying: Anyone who recites Surah al-Qadr (No. 97) ten times after the Asr Prayer will be granted the reward of the deeds of all creatures on that day.

It is also recommended to say Dua al-Ashraat every morning and evening. Yet, the best time for this supplication is the time after the Asr Prayers on Fridays

TAQIBAAT E NAMAZ E MAGHRIB

As quoted from Misbah al-Mutahajjid

After accomplishment of Tasbih al-Zahra’, it is recommended to say the following invocation of blessings:

اِنَّ اللَّهَ وَ مَلائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ يَا اَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَ سَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيما اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ وَ عَلَى ذُرِّيَّتِهِ وَ عَلَى اَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ

Then, repeat the following litany seven times:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ وَ لا حَوْلَ وَ لا قُوَّةَ اِلا بِاللّٰهِ الْعَلِيِّ الْعَظِيمِ.

Then, repeat the following doxology three times:

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي يَفْعَلُ مَا يَشَاءُ وَ لا يَفْعَلُ مَا يَشَاءُ غَيْرُهُ

Then, say the following supplicatory prayer:

سُبْحَانَكَ لا اِلَهَ اِلا اَنْتَ اغْفِرْ لِي ذُنُوبِي كُلَّهَا جَمِيعا فَاِنَّهُ لا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ كُلَّهَا جَمِيعا اِلا اَنْتَ:

You may then offer the Sunset supererogatory (Nafilah) prayer, which consists of four units of prayer, each two separated by a Taslim statement. You should not utter any word between the two parts of the prayer.

According to the Shaykh, it has been narrated that Surah al-Kafirun (No. 109) should be recited in the first unit and Surah al-Tawheed in the second. In the third and fourth units, it is optional to recite any other Surah desired.

It has been also narrated that Imam Ali al-Naqi (al-Hadi) (a.s.) used to recite, in the third unit (Rak’ah) of this prayer, Surah al-Faatehah and the first six verses (Ayahs) of Surah al-Hadid, and in the fourth unit, Surah al-Faatehah and the last four verses of Surah al-Hashr.

It is also recommended to repeat the following supplicatory prayer seven times in the last prostration (sajdah) of all supererogatory prayers each night, especially at Friday nights (i.e. the night before Friday):

اللَّهُمَّ اِنِّي اَسْاَلُكَ بِوَجْهِكَ الْكَرِيمِ وَ اسْمِكَ الْعَظِيمِ وَ مُلْكِكَ الْقَدِيمِ اَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ وَ اَنْ تَغْفِرَ لِي ذَنْبِيَ الْعَظِيمَ اِنَّهُ لا يَغْفِرُ الْعَظِيمَ اِلا الْعَظِيمُ ،

When you accomplish the supererogatory prayer, you may utter any supplication you like.

You may then repeat the following litany ten times:

مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ لا قُوَّةَ اِلا بِاللّٰهِ اَسْتَغْفِرُ اللَّهَ

You may then add the following:

اللَّهُمَّ اِنِّي اَسْاَلُكَ مُوجِبَاتِ رَحْمَتِكَ وَ عَزَائِمَ مَغْفِرَتِكَ وَ النَّجَاةَ مِنَ النَّارِ وَ مِنْ كُلِّ بَلِيَّةٍ وَ الْفَوْزَ بِالْجَنَّةِ وَ الرِّضْوَانَ [الرِّضْوَانِ‏] فِي دَارِ السَّلامِ وَ جِوَارَ [جِوَارِ] نَبِيِّكَ مُحَمَّدٍ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ السَّلامُ اللَّهُمَّ مَا بِنَا مِنْ نِعْمَةٍ فَمِنْكَ لا اِلَهَ اِلا اَنْتَ اَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَ اَتُوبُ اِلَيْكَ:

THE GHUFAYLAH PRAYER

You may then offer the Ghufaylah Prayer in the period between the Sunset (maghrib) and the Evening (Isha’) Prayers. This prayer consists of two units in the first of which you should recite, after Surah al-Faatehah, the following verses (Surah al-Anbiya’ 21:87-88):

وَ ذَا النُّونِ اِذْ ذَهَبَ مُغَاضِبا فَظَنَّ اَنْ لَنْ نَقْدِرَ عَلَيْهِ فَنَادَى فِي الظُّلُمَاتِ اَنْ لا اِلَهَ اِلا اَنْتَ سُبْحَانَكَ اِنِّي كُنْتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ فَاسْتَجَبْنَا لَهُ وَ نَجَّيْنَاهُ مِنَ الْغَمِّ وَ كَذَلِكَ نُنْجِي الْمُؤْمِنِينَ .

In the second unit, you should recite, after Surah al-Faatehah, the following verse (6:59):

وَ عِنْدَهُ مَفَاتِحُ الْغَيْبِ لا يَعْلَمُهَا اِلا هُوَ وَ يَعْلَمُ مَا فِي الْبَرِّ وَ الْبَحْرِ وَ مَا تَسْقُطُ مِنْ وَرَقَةٍ اِلا يَعْلَمُهَا وَ لا حَبَّةٍ فِي ظُلُمَاتِ الْاَرْضِ وَ لا رَطْبٍ وَ لا يَابِسٍ اِلا فِي كِتَابٍ مُبِينٍ

After that, you should raise your both hands for Qunut, saying:

اللَّهُمَّ اِنِّي اَسْاَلُكَ بِمَفَاتِحِ الْغَيْبِ الَّتِي لا يَعْلَمُهَا اِلا اَنْتَ اَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ وَ اَنْ تَفْعَلَ بِي كَذَا وَ كَذَا.

You may then mention your needs.

Then, say the following:

اللَّهُمَّ اَنْتَ وَلِيُّ نِعْمَتِي وَ الْقَادِرُ عَلَى طَلِبَتِي تَعْلَمُ حَاجَتِي فَاَسْاَلُكَ بِحَقِّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ عَلَيْهِ وَ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلامُ لَمَّا قَضَيْتَهَا لِي.

You may then pray to Him for your personal needs, for it has been narrated that anyone who offers this prayer and supplicates Almighty Allah will have his requests granted.

TAQIBAAT E NAMAZ E ISHA

As quoted from Misbah al-Mutahajjid

Subsequent to the Evening Prayer, you are recommended to say the following supplicatory prayer, as is quoted from Misbah al-Mutahajjid:

اللَّهُمَّ اِنَّهُ لَيْسَ لِي عِلْمٌ بِمَوْضِعِ رِزْقِي وَ اِنَّمَا اَطْلُبُهُ بِخَطَرَاتٍ تَخْطُرُ عَلَى قَلْبِي فَاَجُولُ فِي طَلَبِهِ الْبُلْدَانَ فَاَنَا فِيمَا اَنَا طَالِبٌ كَالْحَيْرَانِ لا اَدْرِي اَ فِي سَهْلٍ هُوَ اَمْ فِي جَبَلٍ اَمْ فِي اَرْضٍ اَمْ فِي سَمَاءٍ اَمْ فِي بَرٍّ اَمْ فِي بَحْرٍ وَ عَلَى يَدَيْ مَنْ وَ مِنْ قِبَلِ مَنْ وَ قَدْ عَلِمْتُ اَنَّ عِلْمَهُ عِنْدَكَ وَ اَسْبَابَهُ بِيَدِكَ وَ اَنْتَ الَّذِي تَقْسِمُهُ بِلُطْفِكَ وَ تُسَبِّبُهُ بِرَحْمَتِكَ اللَّهُمَّ فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ وَ اجْعَلْ يَا رَبِّ رِزْقَكَ لِي وَاسِعا وَ مَطْلَبَهُ سَهْلا وَ مَأْخَذَهُ قَرِيباً وَ لا تُعَنِّنِي بِطَلَبِ مَا لَمْ تُقَدِّرْ لِي فِيهِ رِزْقا فَاِنَّكَ غَنِيٌّ عَنْ عَذَابِي [عَنَائِي‏] وَ اَنَا فَقِيرٌ اِلَى رَحْمَتِكَ فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ وَ جُدْ عَلَى عَبْدِكَ بِفَضْلِكَ اِنَّكَ ذُو فَضْلٍ عَظِيمٍ.

It is worth mentioning that the abovementioned supplication is one of the supplications restricted to seeking sustenance.

THE WUTAYRAH PRAYER

Upon accomplishment of the Evening Prayer, it is recommended to recite Surah al-Qadr (No. 97) seven times and offer the Wutayrah supererogatory prayer, which consists of two units and should be offered in the position of sitting by reciting one hundred verses of the Holy Qur’an in both the units. Hence, it is recommended to recite Surah al-Waqiah (No. 56) in the first unit and Surah al-Tawheed in the second.
