Dua’a to bid farewell to Ramadhan (Taught by Imam Jafar Sadiq (A.S))

allah

A.Shaykh al-Kulayniy, in his book of ‘al-Kafe’ has reported on the authority of Abu-Baser that Imam al-Jafar sadiq (A.S) instructed that the following supplication might be said for bidding the month of Ramadhan farewell:

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحمْنِ الرَّحيم

In the name of Allah,The Beneficent, The Merciful

اللهم إنك قلت في كتابك المنزل :

 allahumma innaka qulta fiy kitabika almunzali:

 O Allah: You have said in Your revealed Book:

”شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي أُنزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ.“

 “shahru ramazana alladhiy unzila fehi alqur’anu.”

 “The month of Ramazan in which the Qur’an was revealed…”

وَهذَا شَهْرُ رَمَضانَ

 wahadha shahru ramazana

 And this month of Ramadhan

وَقَدْ تَصَرَّمَ

 waqad tasarrama

 is about to slip away.

فَأسْألُكَ بِوَجْهِكَ الْكَرِيمِ

 fasaluka biuajhika alkaremi

 I thus beseech You in the name of Your Noble Face,

وَكَلِماتِكَ التّامَّةِ

 wakalimatika alttammati

 And Your Perfect Words,

إنْ كانَ بَقِيَ عَلَيَّ ذَنْبٌ لَمْ تَغْفِرْهُ لي

 in kana baqea `alayya dhanbun lam taghfirhu le

 If I am still liable to a sin that You have not yet forgiven

أوْ تُرِيدُ أنْ تُعَذِّبَنِي عَلَيْهِ

 aw turedu an tu`adhdhibaniy `alayhi

 or You want to punish me for it,

أوْ تُقايِسَنِي بِهِ

 aw tuqayisaniy bihi

 or to retaliate upon me because of it,

أنْ لا يَطْلُعَ فَجْرُ هَذِهِ اللَيْلَةِ

 an la yatlu`a fajru hadhihii allaylati

 (I beseech You that) before dawn of this night rises

أوْ يَتَصَرَّمُ هذا الشَّهْرُ

 aw yatasarramu hdha alshshahru

 And before this moth elapses

إلاَّ وَقَدْ غَفَرْتَهُ لي

 illa waqad ghafartahu le

 (please) forgive it for me;

يا أرْحَمَ الرّاحِمِينَ.

 ya arhama alrrahimena.

 O the most Merciful of all those who show mercy.

اَللّهُمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ بِمَحامِدِكَ كُلِّها

 allahumma laka alhamdu bimahamidika kulliha

 O Allah: all praise be to You in all expressions of praise—

أوَّلِها وَآخِرِها

وَما قالَ الْخَلائِقُ الْحامِدونَ

مِنْ أصْنافِ خَلْقِكَ

 min asnafi khalqika

 From among the varieties of Your creatures;
