J) Du'a to bid farewell to Ramadhan (Taught by Imam Ja'far as-Sadiq (a) )ALternative line by line text

K) Sayyid Ibn Tawus has reported Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (a.s) as saying: As for anyone who bids farewell to the month of Ramazan with the following supplication, Almighty Allah will forgive him before morning and will confer upon him with the bliss of submission before Him (i.e. Almighty Allah):

اللّهُمّ لا تَجْعَلْهُ آخِرَ العَهْدِ من صِيَامِي لِشَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ،

 allahumma la taj`alhu akhira al`ahdi mn siyamy lishahri ramazana

 O Allah: (please) do not decide my observance of fasting in this month of Ramazan to be the last of my observance of fasting.

وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ أَنْ يَطْلُعَ فَجْرُ هذِهِ اللّيْلَةِ إِلاَّ وَقَدْ غَفَرْتَ لِي

 wa a`udhu bika an ya§lu`a fajru hadhihi allaylati illa wa qad ghafarta le

 And I seek Your protection against that this day dawns before You shall forgive me.

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

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

اللّهُمّ لا تَجْعَلهُ آخِرَ العَهْدِ مِنْ صِيَامِنَا إِيَّاهُ

 allahumma la taj`alhu akhira al`ahdi min siyamina iyyahu

 O Allah: (please) do not make it the last of our fasting in this month;

فَإِنْ جَعَلْتَهُ فَاجْعَلْنِي مَرْحُوماً وَلا تَجْعَلْنِي مَحْرُوماً.

 fa-in ja`altahu faj`alny marhuman wa la taj`alny mahruman

 but if You decide so, then (please) make me enjoy (Your) mercy and do not make me deprived (of it).

Verily, anyone who says this supplication will win one of the two good things; either attaining the next Ramazan or having the forgiveness and mercy of Almighty Allah.”

L) Sayyid Ibn Tawus and al-Kaf`amiy have reported the Holy Prophet (a.s) as saying, “At the last night of Ramazan, one may offer a prayer consisting of ten Rak`ahs at each of which Surah or al-Fatihah is recited once and Surah of al-Tawhed is repeated ten times. In the Ruku` (genuflection of the prayer) and Sujud (prostration of the prayer), the following invocation (namely al-Tasbehat al-Arba`ah) may be repeated ten times:

allah
سُبْحَانَ اللّهِ،

 subhana allahi,

 All glory be to Allah;

وَالْحَمْدُ لِلّهِ،

 walhamdu lillahi,

 all praise be to Allah;

وَلا إلهَ إلاَّ اللّهُ،

 wa la ilaha illa allahu,

 there is no god save Allah;

وَاللّهُ أَكْبَرُ.

 wallahu akbaru,

 Allah is the Greatest.

After each couple of Rak`ahs, one may recite the Tashahhud and Taslem. After the accomplishment of the ten Rak`ahs, one may recite the Taslem and say the following supplication of seeking forgiveness one Thousand times:

أَسْتَغْفِرُ اللّهَ وَأَتُوبُ إلَيْهِ.

 astaghfiru allaha wa atubu ilayhi

I seek the forgiveness of Allah and I repent before Him.

After that, one may prostrate and say the following:

يَا حَيّ يَا قَيّومُ،

 ya hayyu ya qayyumu

 O Ever-Alive, O Eternal,

يَا ذَا الجَلالِ وَالإِكرَامِ،

 ya dhaljalali wal-ikrami

 O the Lord of Majesty and Honor.

يَارَحْمَانَ الدّنيَا وَالآخِرَةِ وَرَحِيمَهُمَا،

 yarahmana alddunya wal-akhirati wa rahemahuma

 O the All-beneficent of this world and the Next World and the All-merciful of them;

يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ،

 ya arhama alrrahimena

 O the most Merciful of all those who show mercy.

يَاإِلهَ الأَوّلِينَ وَالآخِرِينَ،

 ya ilah al-awwalena wal-akhirena

 O the God of the past and the coming generations;

اغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا،

 aghfir lana dhunubana

 (Please) forgive us our sins,

وَتَقَبّلْ مِنَّا صَلاتَنَا وَصِيَامَنَا وَقِيَامَنَا

wa taqabbl minna salatana wa siyamana wa qiyamana

And accept our prayers, fasting, and worship.

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