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

TAQIBAAT E NAMAZ E FAJR

As quoted from Misbah al-Mutahajjid

Subsequent to the Dawn (fajr) Prayer, say the following supplicatory prayer, as quoted from Misbah al-Mutahajjid:

اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اهْدِنِي لِمَا اخْتُلِفَ فِيهِ مِنَ الْحَقِّ بِاِذْنِكَ اِنَّكَ تَهْدِي مَنْ تَشَاءُ اِلَى صِرَاطٍ مُسْتَقِيمٍ. اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ الْاَوْصِيَاءِ الرَّاضِينَ الْمَرْضِيِّينَ بِاَفْضَلِ صَلَوَاتِكَ وَ بَارِكْ عَلَيْهِمْ بِاَفْضَلِ بَرَكَاتِكَ وَ السَّلامُ عَلَيْهِمْ وَ عَلَى اَرْوَاحِهِمْ وَ اَجْسَادِهِمْ وَ رَحْمَةُ اللّٰهِ وَ بَرَكَاتُهُ .

Again, repeat the following invocation ten times:

This invocation of God’s blessings upon the Holy Prophet and his Household has been also reported to be said on Fridays with a great reward.

Also, say the following:

اللَّهُمَّ اَحْيِنِي عَلَى مَا اَحْيَيْتَ عَلَيْهِ عَلِيَّ بْنَ اَبِي طَالِبٍ وَ اَمِتْنِي عَلَى مَا مَاتَ عَلَيْهِ عَلِيُّ بْنُ اَبِي طَالِبٍ عليه السلام.

Also, repeat each of the following statements one hundred times:

اَسْتَغْفِرُ اللَّهَ وَ اَتُوبُ اِلَيْهِ

اَسْاَلُ اللَّهَ الْعَافِيَةَ

اَسْتَجِيرُ بِاللّٰهِ مِنَ النَّارِ

وَ اَسْاَلُهُ الْجَنَّةَ

اَسْاَلُ اللَّهَ الْحُورَ الْعِينَ .لا اِلَهَ اِلا اللَّهُ الْمَلِكُ الْحَقُّ الْمُبِينُ

صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

سُبْحَانَ اللّٰهِ وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ وَ لا اِلَهَ اِلا اللَّهُ وَ اللَّهُ اَكْبَرُ وَ لا حَوْلَ وَ لا قُوَّةَ اِلا بِاللّٰهِ الْعَلِيِّ الْعَظِيمِ

مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ كَانَ وَ لا حَوْلَ وَ لا قُوَّةَ اِلا بِاللّٰهِ الْعَلِيِّ الْعَظِيمِ.

You may then say the following:

اَصْبَحْتُ اللَّهُمَّ مُعْتَصِما بِذِمَامِكَ الْمَنِيعِ الَّذِي لا يُطَاوَلُ وَ لا يُحَاوَلُ مِنْ شَرِّ كُلِّ غَاشِمٍ وَ طَارِقٍ مِنْ سَائِرِ مَنْ خَلَقْتَ وَ مَا خَلَقْتَ مِنْ خَلْقِكَ الصَّامِتِ وَ النَّاطِقِ فِي جُنَّةٍ مِنْ كُلِّ مَخُوفٍ بِلِبَاسٍ سَابِغَةٍ وَلاءِ اَهْلِ بَيْتِ نَبِيِّكَ مُحْتَجِبا مِنْ كُلِّ قَاصِدٍ لِي اِلَى اَذِيَّةٍ بِجِدَارٍ حَصِينٍ الْاِخْلاصِ فِي الاعْتِرَافِ بِحَقِّهِمْ وَ التَّمَسُّكِ بِحَبْلِهِمْ مُوقِنا اَنَّ الْحَقَّ لَهُمْ وَ مَعَهُمْ وَ فِيهِمْ وَ بِهِمْ اُوَالِي مَنْ وَالَوْا وَ اُجَانِبُ مَنْ جَانَبُوا فَاَعِذْنِي اللَّهُمَّ بِهِمْ مِنْ شَرِّ كُلِّ مَا اَتَّقِيهِ يَا عَظِيمُ حَجَزْتُ الْاَعَادِيَ عَنِّي بِبَدِيعِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ الْاَرْضِ اِنَّا جَعَلْنَا مِنْ بَيْنِ اَيْدِيهِمْ سَدّا وَ مِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ سَدّا فَاَغْشَيْنَاهُمْ فَهُمْ لا يُبْصِرُونَ .

This supplication, which is reported from Imam AliAmeer al-Momineen(a.s.) at the Night of Mabit, is advisably said each morning and evening.

In Tahdhib al-Ahkam (by Shaykh al-Tusi), it is reported that whoever repeats the following litany ten times after the Dawn Prayers, Almighty Allah will save him from blindness, insanity, leprosy, poverty, and (house) demolition or dotage:

سُبْحَانَ اللّٰهِ الْعَظِيمِ وَ بِحَمْدِهِ وَ لا حَوْلَ وَ لا قُوَّةَ اِلا بِاللّٰهِ الْعَلِيِّ الْعَظِيمِ

Shaykh al-Kulayni reports Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq(a.s.) as saying: Whoever repeats the following litany seven times after the Dawn and Sunset Prayers, Almighty Allah will saved him from seventy kinds of misfortune the least of which are flatulence, leprosy, and insanity; and his name will be erased from the list of the condemned ones, if it was listed there, and will be added to the list of the happy ones:

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

Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq(a.s.) is also reported to have said that one who desires to enjoy both the worldly life and the Next World, and one who has eye ache, should utter the following supplicatory prayer after the Dawn and Sunset Prayers:

اللَّهُمَّ اِنِّي اَسْاَلُكَ بِحَقِّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَلَيْكَ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اجْعَلِ النُّورَ فِي بَصَرِي وَ الْبَصِيرَةَ فِي دِينِي وَ الْيَقِينَ فِي قَلْبِي وَ الْاِخْلاصَ فِي عَمَلِي وَ السَّلامَةَ فِي نَفْسِي وَ السَّعَةَ فِي رِزْقِي وَ الشُّكْرَ لَكَ اَبَدا مَا اَبْقَيْتَنِي

In ‘Uddat al-Dai, Shaykh Ibn Fahad reports Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Rida(a.s.) to have said: Whoever says the following statement after the Dawn Prayer, will have all his requests made easy-to-gain for him and will be saved by Almighty Allah against every thing that aggrieves him:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ وَ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ وَ اُفَوِّضُ اَمْرِي اِلَى اللّٰهِ اِنَّ اللَّهَ بَصِيرٌ بِالْعِبَادِ فَوَقَاهُ اللَّهُ سَيِّئَاتِ مَا مَكَرُوا لا اِلَهَ اِلا اَنْتَ سُبْحَانَكَ اِنِّي كُنْتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ فَاسْتَجَبْنَا لَهُ وَ نَجَّيْنَاهُ مِنَ الْغَمِّ وَ كَذَلِكَ نُنْجِي الْمُؤْمِنِينَ حَسْبُنَا اللَّهُ وَ نِعْمَ الْوَكِيلُ فَانْقَلَبُوا بِنِعْمَةٍ مِنَ اللّٰهِ وَ فَضْلٍ لَمْ يَمْسَسْهُمْ سُوءٌ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ لا حَوْلَ وَ لا قُوَّةَ اِلا بِاللّٰهِ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ لا مَا شَاءَ النَّاسُ،

مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ وَ اِنْ كَرِهَ النَّاسُ حَسْبِيَ الرَّبُّ مِنَ الْمَرْبُوبِينَ حَسْبِيَ الْخَالِقُ مِنَ الْمَخْلُوقِينَ حَسْبِيَ الرَّازِقُ مِنَ الْمَرْزُوقِينَ حَسْبِيَ اللَّهُ رَبُّ الْعَالَمِينَ حَسْبِي مَنْ هُوَ حَسْبِي حَسْبِي مَنْ لَمْ يَزَلْ حَسْبِي حَسْبِي مَنْ كَانَ مُذْ كُنْتُ لَمْ يَزَلْ حَسْبِي حَسْبِيَ اللَّهُ لا اِلَهَ اِلا هُوَ عَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ وَ هُوَ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ.

TRUE INCIDENT FOR FULFILLMENT OF DESIRES

Our master scholar, Shaykh al-Nuri, in his book of Dar al-Salam, has recorded on the authority of his mentor FathAli al-Sultanabadi that Shaykh MuhammadSadiq al-Iraqi had lived in harsh poverty for a long time without finding any solution for his state until he saw, in dream, that he was in a valley where there was an enormous tent with a dome over it. As he asked about the lord of that tent, he was answered that it was owned by Imam al-Mahdi, the Awaited - the protecting shelter and the relief of the deprived ones - may Allah hasten his reappearance. He therefore hurried towards that tent and complained about his poverty, asking the Imam (a.s.) to teach him a supplication that would relieve him from his grief and save him from his misfortunes. The Imam, having heard his complaint, instructed him to visit the tent of one of his offspring. He therefore left the Imam’s tent and headed for the tent to which he was guided. When he reached there, he saw Sayyid Muhammad al-Sultanabadi sitting in his prayer-place while he was engaged in uttering supplications and litanies. He greeted him and told him about his story with the Imam. The Sayyid therefore taught him a supplication that would relieve him from poverty and bring him good sustenance.

When the man woke up, he found that he had learnt that supplication by heart; therefore, he hurried to the house of the Sayyid and found him in the same state that he had seen in the dream. As if the Sayyid had already known about the dream, he welcomed the man and smiled in his face. The man hence asked the Sayyid about that supplication and the Sayyid answered him. Immediately after saying the supplication persistently, the man became so wealthy that fortune covered him from all sides.

HajjFathAli al-Sultanabadi used to praise the Sayyid so laudably. For some time, he studied under him.

The following three matters were taught by the Sayyid to that man:

(1) He taught him that he, after the Dawn Prayers, should put his hand on his chest and repeat seventy times the phrase of:

يا فتّاح

(2) He taught him to regularly say the following supplicatory prayer that, as is recorded in al-Kafi, the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) taught to one of his companions who had been afflicted by disease and poverty. Soon after that, the man recovered health and got rid of poverty. The supplication is this:

لا حَوْلَ وَ لا قُوَّةَ اِلا بِاللّٰهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى الْحَيِّ الَّذِي لا يَمُوتُ وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي لَمْ يَتَّخِذْ وَلَدا وَ لَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ شَرِيكٌ فِي الْمُلْكِ وَ لَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ وَلِيٌّ مِنَ الذُّلِّ وَ كَبِّرْهُ تَكْبِيرا.

(3) He taught him to say the abovementioned supplication, which is recorded by Ibn Fahad al-Hilli in ‘Uddat al-Dai, after the Dawn Prayers.

It is thus necessary to constantly say these supplications since great rewards will be given to those who do not neglect so.

SUPPLICATIONS AT SUNRISE & SUNSET

Too many are the supplications that have been reported from the Holy Prophet and the Holy Imams, peace be upon them, to be said at sunrise and sunset. Besides, verses from the Holy Qur’an and traditions of the Infallibles, peace be upon them, have urged on and awakened desires for the persistence on saying such supplications at these two times of the day. However, let us mention a few number of these authenticated supplications:

First: Master Hadithists have narrated, through authenticated chain of authority (sanad), that Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq(a.s.) said: It is incumbent upon each and every Muslim to repeat the following supplicatory prayer ten times before sunrise and ten times before sunset:

لا اِلَهَ اِلا اللَّهُ 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 .

According to some narrations, this supplication should be made up if it is missed because it is obligatory.

Second: Through trustworthy chains of authority too, Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) is reported to have said: Before sunrise and sunset, repeat ten times the following supplicatory prayer:

اَعُوذُ بِاللّٰهِ السَّمِيعِ الْعَلِيمِ مِنْ هَمَزَاتِ الشَّيَاطِينِ وَ اَعُوذُ بِاللّٰهِ اَنْ يَحْضُرُونِ اِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ.

Third: Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) is also reported to have said: Nothing should divert you from saying the following supplicatory prayer three times each morning and evening:

اللَّهُمَّ مُقَلِّبَ الْقُلُوبِ وَ الْاَبْصَارِ ثَبِّتْ قَلْبِي عَلَى دِينِكَ وَ لا تُزِغْ قَلْبِي بَعْدَ اِذْ هَدَيْتَنِي وَ هَبْ لِي مِنْ لَدُنْكَ رَحْمَةً اِنَّكَ اَنْتَ الْوَهَّابُ وَ اَجِرْنِي مِنَ النَّارِ بِرَحْمَتِكَ اللَّهُمَّ امْدُدْ لِي فِي عُمْرِي وَ اَوْسِعْ عَلَيَّ فِي رِزْقِي وَ انْشُرْ عَلَيَّ رَحْمَتَكَ وَ اِنْ كُنْتُ عِنْدَكَ فِي اُمِّ الْكِتَابِ شَقِيّا فَاجْعَلْنِي سَعِيدا فَاِنَّكَ تَمْحُو مَا تَشَاءُ وَ تُثْبِتُ وَ عِنْدَكَ اُمُّ الْكِتَابِ.

Fourth: Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) is also reported to have instructed to say the following supplicatory prayer each morning and evening:

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي يَفْعَلُ مَا يَشَاءُ وَ لا يَفْعَلُ مَا يَشَاءُ غَيْرُهُ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ كَمَا يُحِبُّ اللَّهُ اَنْ يُحْمَدَ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ كَمَا هُوَ اَهْلُهُ اللَّهُمَّ اَدْخِلْنِي فِي كُلِّ خَيْرٍ اَدْخَلْتَ فِيهِ مُحَمَّدا وَ آلَ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَخْرِجْنِي مِنْ كُلِّ شَرٍّ اَخْرَجْتَ مِنْهُ مُحَمَّدا وَ آلَ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

Fifth: Repeat the following litany ten times each morning and evening:

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

Dua al-Ashraat, which will be later on cited in this book, is one of the supplications to be advisably said each morning and evening.

THANKSGIVING PROSTRATION (SAJDAT AL-SHUKR)

It is highly recommended to do the Thanksgiving Prostration after the accomplishment of obligatory prayers. Too many are the supplications and litanies that may be said during the Thanksgiving Prostration. In this connection, Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Rida(a.s.) is reported to have said that one may repeat one hundred times one of the following words during the Thanksgiving Prostrations:

“شكرا شكرا”

“عفوا عفوا”

Imam al-Rida(a.s.) is also reported to have said: The least to be said while prostrating is to repeat the following three times:

“شكرا للّه”

THIRD CHAPTER: SUPPLICATIONS OF THE DAYS

The following are the supplications of the days as quoted from the appendix of al-Sahifah al-Kamilah al-Sajjadiyyah:

THE SUPPLICATION ON SUNDAYS

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الَّذِي لا اَرْجُو اِلا فَضْلَهُ وَ لا اَخْشَى اِلا عَدْلَهُ وَ لا اَعْتَمِدُ اِلا قَوْلَهُ وَ لا اُمْسِكُ اِلا بِحَبْلِهِ بِكَ اَسْتَجِيرُ يَا ذَا الْعَفْوِ وَ الرِّضْوَانِ مِنَ الظُّلْمِ وَ الْعُدْوَانِ وَ مِنْ غِيَرِ الزَّمَانِ وَ تَوَاتُرِ الْاَحْزَانِ وَ طَوَارِقِ الْحَدَثَانِ وَ مِنِ انْقِضَاءِ الْمُدَّةِ قَبْلَ التَّاَهُّبِ وَ الْعُدَّةِ وَ اِيَّاكَ اَسْتَرْشِدُ لِمَا فِيهِ الصَّلاحُ وَ الْاِصْلاحُ وَ بِكَ اَسْتَعِينُ فِيمَا يَقْتَرِنُ بِهِ النَّجَاحُ وَ الْاِنْجَاحُ وَ اِيَّاكَ اَرْغَبُ فِي لِبَاسِ الْعَافِيَةِ وَ تَمَامِهَا وَ شُمُولِ السَّلامَةِ وَ دَوَامِهَا وَ اَعُوذُ بِكَ يَا رَبِّ مِنْ هَمَزَاتِ الشَّيَاطِينِ وَ اَحْتَرِزُ بِسُلْطَانِكَ مِنْ جَوْرِ السَّلاطِينِ، فَتَقَبَّلْ مَا كَانَ مِنْ صَلاتِي وَ صَوْمِي وَ اجْعَلْ غَدِي وَ مَا بَعْدَهُ اَفْضَلَ مِنْ سَاعَتِي وَ يَوْمِي وَ اَعِزَّنِي فِي عَشِيرَتِي وَ قَوْمِي وَ احْفَظْنِي فِي يَقَظَتِي وَ نَوْمِي فَاَنْتَ اللَّهُ خَيْرٌ حَافِظا وَ اَنْتَ اَرْحَمُ الرَّاحِمِينَ اللَّهُمَّ اِنِّي اَبْرَاُ اِلَيْكَ فِي يَوْمِي هَذَا وَ مَا بَعْدَهُ مِنَ الْآحَادِ مِنَ الشِّرْكِ وَ الْاِلْحَادِ وَ اُخْلِصُ لَكَ دُعَائِي تَعَرُّضا لِلْاِجَابَةِ وَ اُقِيمُ عَلَى طَاعَتِكَ رَجَاءً لِلْاِثَابَةِ فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ خَيْرِ خَلْقِكَ الدَّاعِي اِلَى حَقِّكَ وَ اَعِزَّنِي بِعِزِّكَ الَّذِي لا يُضَامُ وَ احْفَظْنِي بِعَيْنِكَ الَّتِي لا تَنَامُ وَ اخْتِمْ بِالانْقِطَاعِ اِلَيْكَ اَمْرِي وَ بِالْمَغْفِرَةِ عُمْرِي اِنَّكَ اَنْتَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ.

FOURTH CHAPTER: MERITS & RITUALS OF FRIDAY NIGHT & DAY

MERITS OF FRIDAYS

Friday days and nights excel the other days and nights in standing, honor, and regard. In this connection, the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) is reported to have said, “Surely, in each hour of the twenty-four hours of the Friday day and night, Almighty Allah releases from Hellfire six hundred thousand persons.”

Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq(a.s.) is reported to have said, “One who dies in the period between midday on Thursdays and midday on Fridays will be released, by Almighty Allah, from pressure in graves.”

Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) is also reported as saying, “Verily, Fridays enjoy rights (incumbent upon people). Therefore, beware of violating Fridays’ sanctity through showing shortcoming in acts of worship; rather, seek nearness to Almighty Allah by means of righteous deeds and abandonment of all forbidden acts. Certainly, on Fridays, Almighty Allah doubles up the rewards (of good deeds), erases forgivingly punishments (for evildoings), and raises the ranks (of faith). Friday daytimes are as same as Friday nights; therefore, you may, when possible, stay up supplicating and offering prayers to Almighty Allah Who, at that night, orders the angels to descend to the lower sky in order to double up the rewards and erase the evildoings. Most surely, Allah is Ample-giving and All-generous.”

Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) is also reported, in a validly reported tradition, to have said, “When a believing individual prays to Him for granting him his request, Almighty Allah may postpone the answer of that request to Friday in order that the individual will be given all the more due to the exclusive merit of Fridays.”

Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) is also reported as narrating that when Prophet Joseph’s brothers asked their father, Prophet Jacob, to ask Almighty Allah’s forgiveness of their faults, he promised to do that. Yet, he postponed that appeal to Friday early dawn so as to guarantee response.

Again, Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) is reported as saying that on Friday nights, fishes in oceans and beasts in wildernesses raise their heads and pray Almighty Allah saying in a loud sound, “O Our Lord; torture us not for the sins of the human beings.”

Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (a.s.) is reported to have said that on Friday nights, Almighty Allah gives orders to an angel - on behalf of Him - to call out, from above the Divine Throne, throughout the night, “Is there not any believing servant who will, right now, supplicate Me, before dawn comes upon him, for his world and Next World needs so that I will respond to him? Is there not any believing servant who, right now, repents to Me, before dawn comes upon him, and gives up his sins so that I will accept his repentance? Is there not any believing servant whose sustenance has been made reduced who will, right now, prays Me for increase, before dawn comes upon him, so that I will increase and develop his sustenance? Is there not any believing servant, being ailed, who will, right now, pray Me for healing, before dawn comes upon him, so that I will heal him? Is there not any believing servant, being grieved and detained, who will, right now, pray Me for relief and release, before dawn comes upon him, so that I will relieve and release him? Is there not any believing servant, being oppressed, who will, right now, pray Me for giving him victory and releasing him from oppression, before dawn comes upon him, so that I will back and release from oppression?” This angel will keep saying so until dawn.

Likewise, Imam AliAmeer al-Momineen(a.s.) is reported to have said, “As He has chosen Friday, Almighty Allah has decided their daytimes and nights to be feasts. One of its merits, whoever beseeches Him on Fridays will be granted his request. Chastisement that is decided for a people because of an evildoing will be canceled by Him if that evildoing is committed on Friday. All graces that Almighty Allah decides are put into practice on Friday nights. Hence, Friday nights are more favorable than other nights and so are their days.”

Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) is reported as saying, “Avoid committing any act of disobedience (to Almighty Allah) on Friday nights, for the punishments (of evildoing) are doubled up, and rewards (for good deeds) are also doubled up. Whoever avoids committing an act of disobedience at Friday nights, Almighty Allah will forgive all of his previous sins. In the same way, whoever challenges Almighty Allah by committing an act of disobedience at such nights, Almighty Allah will punish him for each and every act of disobedience that he did in his whole lifetime and will double up the punishment for him.”

It has been authentically narrated on the authority of Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Rida(a.s.) that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) said, “Verily, Friday is the master of days. On Fridays, Almighty Allah doubles up the rewards (for good deeds), erases, forgivingly, the punishments (for evildoings), raises the ranks (of faith), responds to prayers, relieves from misfortunes, and fulfills the grand requests. Friday is the day of bonus. Almighty Allah, on Fridays, releases numerous individuals from Hellfire. When anyone prays Him on Friday while having already appreciated the actual standing and the sanctity of this day, it will be incumbent upon Almighty Allah to release him/her from Hellfire. If that individual dies on that day or night, he/she will be decided as martyr and will be resurrected (on the Judgment Day) secured. Conversely, if one belittles the sanctity of Friday and disrespects its standings, it will be incumbent upon Almighty Allah to cast him/her into Hellfire unless he/she repents thereafter.”

Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (a.s.) is reported, through an authentic chain of authority, to have said, “Sunlight has never risen in a day better than Friday. When beards meet each other on that day, they greet each other with, Peace! Good day!”

Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq(a.s.) is authentically reported to have said, “On Fridays, do not engage yourselves in anything other than acts of worship, for the servants’ faults are forgiven and the divine mercy is sent down on Fridays.”

Finally, the merits of Friday daytimes and nights are too many to be cited in this brief introduction.
