Imam Sajjd's

supplication (A.S) for the Coming of the Month of Ramadan


Praise belongs to ALLAH who guided us to His praise and placed us among the people of praise, that we might be among the thankful for His beneficence and that He might recompense us for that with the recompense of the good-doers! And praise belongs to ALLAH who showed favor to us through His religion, singled us out for His creed,and directed us onto the roads of His beneficence, in order that through His kindness we might travel upon them to His good pleasure, a praise which He will accept from us and through which He will be pleased with us! And praise belongs to ALLAH who appointed among those roads His month, the month of RAMAZ''AAN, the month of fasting, the month of submission, the month of purity, the month of putting to test, the month of standing in prayer, (in what the QURAN was sent down as guidance to the people,and as signs of the Guidance and the Separator!) He clarified its excellence over other months by the many sacred things and well-known excellencies

which He placed therein, for He made unlawful in it what He declared lawful in others to magnify it, He prohibited foods and drinks in it to honor it,and He appointed for it a clear time which He (majestic and mighty is He)allows not to be set forward and

accepts not to be placed behind.

Then He made one of its nights surpass the nights of a thousand months and named it the Night of Decree; (in it the angels and the Spirit descend by the leave of their Lord upon every command) , a peace constant in blessings until the rising of the dawn upon whomsoever He will of His servants according to the decision He has made firm.

O ALLAH,bless MUHAMMAD and his Household, inspire us with knowledge of its excellence, veneration of its inviolability,and caution against what Thou hast forbidden

within it, and help us to fast in it by our restraining our limbs from acts of disobedience toward Thee and our employing them in that which pleases Thee,so that we lend not our ears to idle talk and hurry not with our eyes to diversion, we stretch not our hands toward the forbidden and stride not with our feet toward the prohibited, our bellies hold only what Thou hast made lawful and our tongues speak only what Thou hast exemplified, we undertake nothing but what brings close to Thy reward and pursue nothing but what protects from Thy punishment! Then rid all of that from the false show of the false showers and the fame seeking of the fame seekers, lest we associate therein anything with Thee or seek therein any object of desire but Thee! O ALLAH,bless MUHAMMAD and his Household, in it make us attend to the appointed moments of the five prayers within the bounds Thou hast set, the obligations Thou hast decreed, the duties Thou hast assigned,and the times Thou hast specified; and in the prayers make us alight in the station of the keepers of their stations, the guardians of their pillars, their performers in their times, as Thy servant and Thy messenger set

down in his SUNNA (Thy blessings be upon him and his Household) in their bowings,their prostrations,and all their excellent acts, with the most complete and ample ritual purity and the most evident and intense humility! Give us success in this month to tighten our bonds of kin with devotion and gifts, attend to our neighbors with bestowal and giving, rid our possessions from claims, purify them through paying the alms, go back to him who has gone far from us, treat justly him who has wronged us, make peace with him who shows enmity toward us (except him who is regarded as an enemy in Thee and for Thee, for he is the enemy whom we will not be friend, the party whom we will not hold dear(, and seek nearness to Thee through blameless works which will purify us from sins and preserve us from renewing faults, so that none of Thy angels will bring for Thee the kinds of obedience and sorts of nearness-seeking unless they be less than what we bring! O ALLAH,I ask Thee by the right of this month and by the right of him who worships Thee within it from its beginning to the time of its passing, whether angel Thou hast brought nigh to Thee, prophet Thou hast sent, or righteous servant Thou hast singled out, that Thou bless MUHAMMAD and his Household, make us worthy of the generosity Thou hast promised make incumbent for

us what Thou hast made incumbent for those who go to great lengths in obeying Thee,and place us in the ranks of those who deserve through Thy mercy the highest elevation!

 O ALLAH,bless MUHAMMAD and his Household, turn us aside from deviation in professing Thy Unity, falling short in magnifying Thee, doubt in Thy religion, blindness toward Thy path, heedlessness of Thy inviolability,and being deceived by Thy enemy,the accursed SATAN! O ALLAH,bless MUHAMMAD and his Household,and when in every night of this month's nights Thou hast necks which Thy pardon will release and Thy forgiveness disregard, place our necks among those necks and place us among the best folk and companions of this our month! O ALLAH,bless MUHAMMAD and his Household, efface our sins along with the effacing

of its crescent moon, and make us pass forth from the ill effects of our acts with the passing of its days, until it leaves us behind,while within it Thou hast purified us of offenses and rid us of evil deeds! O ALLAH,bless MUHAMMAD and his

Household,and should we go off to one side in this month,set us a right; should we swerve,point us straight;and should Thy enemy SATAN enwrap us,rescue us from him!

fill this month with our worship of Thee, adorn its times with our obedience toward Thee, help us during its daytime with its fast,and in its night with prayer and pleading toward

Thee, humility toward Thee,and lowliness before Thee, so that its daytime may not bear witness against our heedlessness,nor its night against our neglect! make us like this in the other months and days as long as Thou givest us life, and place us among Thy righteous servants, (those who shall inherit Paradise,therein dwelling forever), those who give what they give,while their hearts quake,that they are returning to their Lord) , those (who vie in good works,outracing to them!)O ALLAH,bless MUHAMMAD and his Household in every time, in all moments,and in every state, to the number that

Thou hast blessed whomsoever Thou hast blessed and to multiples of all that,through multiples which none can count but Thee!Surely Thou art Accomplisher of what Thou

desirest.

His Supplication (A.S) in Bidding Farewell to the

aan ÉÉMonth of Ramaz

O ALLAH,He who desires no repayment! He who shows no remorse at bestowal! He who rewards not His servant tit for tat! Thy kindness is a new beginning, Thy pardon gratuitous bounty, Thy punishment justice, Thy decree a choice for the best If

Thou bestowest,Thou stainest not Thy bestowal with obligation,and if Thou withholdest,Thou withholdest not in transgression.Thou showest gratitude to him who thanks Thee,while Thou hast inspired him to thank Thee.

Thou rewardest him who praises Thee,while though Thou hast taught him Thy praise.

Thou coverest him whom,if Thou willed,Thou wouldst expose,and Thou art generous toward him from whom,if Thou willed,Thou wouldst withhold.

Both are worthy of Thy exposure and withholding,but Thou hast founded Thy acts upon gratuitous bounty, channeled Thy power into forbearance, received him who

disobeyed Thee with clemency,and disregarded him who intended wrongdoing against himself.

Thou awaitest their turning back without haste and refrainest from rushing them toward repentance, so that the perisher among them may not perish because of Thee and the wretched may not be wretched through Thy favor, but only after Thy prolonged excusing him and successive arguments against him, as an act of generosity through Thy pardon,O Generous,and an act of kindliness through Thy tenderness,O Clement! It

is Thou who hast opened for Thy servants a door to Thy pardon,which Thou hast named 'repentance'.

Thou hast placed upon that door a pointer from Thy revelation,lest they stray from it:Thou hast said (blessed are Thy names), (Repent toward ALLAH with unswerving

repentance!It may be that Thy Lord will acquit you of your evil deeds and will admit you into gardens beneath which rivers flow, upon the day when ALLAH will not degrade the

Prophet and those who have faith along with him, their light running before them and of their right hands,and they say: 'Our Lord,complete for us our light,and forgive us! SurelyThou art powerful over everything.

 What is the excuse of him who remains heedless of entering that house after the opening of the door and the setting up of the pointer? It is Thou who hast raised the price against Thyself to the advantage of Thy servants,desiring their profit in their trade with Thee, their triumph through reaching Thee and their increase on account of Thee,

for Thou hast said (blessed is Thy Name and high art Thou exalted), whoso brings a good deed shall have ten the like of it,and those brings an evil deed shall only be recompensed the like of it.

Thou hast said, (The likeness of those who expend their wealth in the way of ALLAH is as the likeness of a grain of corn that sprouts seven ears,in every ear a hunred grains;so ALLAH multiplies unto whom He wills).

Thou hast said:  Who is he that will lend to ALLAH a good loan,and He will multiply it for him manifold?( And Thou hast sent down in the QURAN similar verses on the multiplying of good deeds.

It is Thou who hast pointed them through Thy speech from Thy Unseen and Thy encouragement in which lies their good fortune toward that which hadst Thou covered it from them their eyes would not have perceived, their ears would not have heard,and

their imaginations would not have grasped, for Thou hast said, )Remember Me,and I will remember you be thankful to Me,and be you not thankless towards Me!( Thou hast said, (If you are thankful,surely I will increase you, but if you are thankless,My chastisement is surely terrible); And Thou hast said, (Supplicate Me,and I will respond to you;surely those who wax too proud to worship Me shall enter GAHENNAM utterly

abject).

Hence Thou hast named supplicating Thee 'worship' and refraining from it 'waxing proud',and Thou hast threatened that the refraining from it would yield entrance into

GAHENNAM in utterly abject.

So they remember Thee for Thy kindness, they thank Thee for Thy bounty, they supplicate Thee by Thy command,and they donate for Thee in order to seek Thy increase; in all this lies their deliverance from Thy wrath and their triumph through Thy good pleasure.

Were any creature himself to direct another creature to the like of that to which Thou Thyself hast directed Thy servants,he would be described by beneficence qualified by kindness,and praised by every tongue.

So to Thee belongs praise as long as there is found a way to praise Thee and as long as there remains for praising words by which Thou may be praised and meanings which may be spent in praise! O He who shows Himself praiseworthy to His

servants through beneficence and bounty, flooding them with kindness and graciousness How much Thy favor has been spread about among us, Thy kindness lavished upon us,and Thy goodness singled out for us! Thou hast guided us to Thy

religion which Thou hast chosen, Thy creed with which Thou art pleased,and Thy path which Thou hast made smooth,and Thou hast shown us proximity to Thee and arrival at Thy generosity! among the choicest of those duties and the most special of those obligations Thou hast appointed the month of Ramadan,which Thou hast singled out from other months, chosen from among all periods and eras,and preferred over all times of the year through the QURAN and the Light which Thou sent down within it, the faith which Thou multiplied by means of it, the fasting which Thou obligated therein, the standing in prayer which Thou encouraged at its time,and the Night of Decree which Thou magnified therein,the night which is better than a thousand months.

Through it Thou hast preferred us over the other communities and through its excellence Thou hast chosen us to the exclusion of the people of the creeds.

We fasted by Thy command in its daylight, we stood in prayer with Thy help in its night, presenting ourselves by its fasting and its standing to the mercy which Thou hast held up before us,and we found through it the means to Thy reward.

And Thou art full of what is sought from Thee, munificent with what is asked of Thy bounty,and near to him who strives for Thy nearness.

This month stood among us in a standing place of praise, accompanied us with the companionship of one approved, and profited us with the most excellent profit of the world's creatures.

Then it parted from us at the completion of its time,the end of its term,and the fulfillment of its number.

So we bid farewell to it with the farewell of one whose parting pains us, whose leaving fills us with gloom and loneliness,and to whom we have come to owe a safeguarded claim, an observed inviolability, a discharged right.

We say:Peace be upon thee, O greatest month of ALLAH!O festival of His friends!

Peace be upon thee, O most noble of accompanying times!O best of months in days and hours! Peace be upon thee,month in which expectations come near and good works are scattered about! Peace be upon thee,comrade who is great in worth when

found and who torments through absence when lost, anticipated friend whose parting gives pain! Peace be upon thee,familiar who brought comfort in coming,thus making happy,who left loneliness in going,thus giving anguish! Peace be upon thee,neighbor in whom hearts became tender and sins became few! Peace be upon thee, helper who aided against SATAN, companion who made easy the paths of good-doing!

Peace be upon thee How many became freedmen of ALLAH within thee!How happy those who observed the respect due to thee! Peace be upon thee How many the sins thou erased!How many the kinds of faults thou covered over! Peace be upon thee

How drawn out wert thou for the sinners!How awesome wert thou in the hearts of the

faithful! Peace be upon thee,month with which no days compete! Peace be upon thee,month which is peace in all affairs! Peace be upon thee,thou whose companionship is not disliked,thou whose friendly mixing is not blamed! Peace be

upon thee,just as thou hast entered upon us with blessings and cleansed us of the defilement of offenses! Peace be upon thee Thou art not bid farewell in annoyance nor

is thy fasting left in weariness! Peace be upon thee, object of seeking before thy time, object of sorrow before thy passing! Peace be upon thee How much evil was turned

away from us through thee!How much good flowed upon us because of thee! Peace be upon thee and upon the Night of Decree which is better than a thousand months!

Peace be upon thee How much we craved thee yesterday!How intensely we shall yearn for thee tomorrow! Peace be upon thee and upon thy bounty which has now been made unlawful to us and upon thy blessings gone by which have now been

stripped away from us! we are the people of this month,Through it Thou hast ennobled us and given us success because of Thy kindness, while the wretched are ignorant of its time.

Made unlawful to them is its bounty because of their wretchedness.

Thou art the patron of the knowledge of it by which Thou hast preferred us,and its prescribed practices to which Thou hast guided us.

We have undertaken,through Thy giving success,its fasting and its standing in prayer,but with shortcomings,and we have performed little of much.

O ALLAH,so to Thee belongs praise, in admission of evil doing and confession of negligence,and to Thee belongs remorse firmly knitted in our hearts seeking of pardon sincerely uttered by our tongues.

Reward us,in spite of the neglect that befell us in this month,with a reward through which we may reach the bounty desired from it and win the varieties of its craved

stores! Make incumbent upon us Thy pardon for our falling short of Thy right in this month and make our lives which lie before us reach the coming month of Ramadan!

Once Thou hast made us reach it, help us perform the worship of which Thou art worthy, cause us to undertake the obedience which Thou deservest, and grant us righteous works that we may fulfill Thy right in these two months of the months of time.

O ALLAH,as for the small and large sins which we have committed in this our month, the misdeeds into which we have fallen, and the offenses which we have earned purposefully or in forgetfulness, wronging ourselves there by or violating the

respect due to others, bless MUHAMMAD and his Household, cover us over with Thy covering, pardon us through Thy pardoning place us not before the eyes of the gloaters because of that, stretch not toward us the tongues of the defamers,and

employ us in that which will alleviate and expiate whatever Thou disapprovest from us within it through Thy clemency which does not run out,and Thy bounty which does not

diminish! O ALLAH,bless MUHAMMAD and his Household, redress our being afflicted by our month, bless us in this day of our festival and our fast-breaking, make it one of the best of days that have passed over us, the greatest in attracting Thy pardon,and the most effacing toward sins,and forgive us our sins,both the concealed and the public! with the passing of this month make us pass forth from our offenses, with its

departure make us depart from our evil deeds, and appoint us thereby among its most felicitous people, the most plentiful of them in portion,and the fullest of them in share! O LLAH,when any person observes this month as it should be observed, safeguards its inviolability as it should be safeguarded, attends to its bounds as they should be attended to fears its misdeeds as they should be feared, or seeks nearness to Thee with any act of nearness-seeking which makes incumbent upon him Thy good

pleasure give to us the like ]of that[from Thy wealth bestow it upon us in multiples through Thy bounty, for Thy bounty does not diminish, Thy treasuries do not decrease but overflow, the mines of Thy beneficence are not exhausted,and Thy bestowal is the bestowal full of delight! O ALLAH,bless MUHAMMAD and his Household and write for us the like of the wages of him who fasted in it or worshiped Thee within it until the Day

of Resurrection! O ALLAH,we repent to Thee in our day of fast-breaking,which Thou hast appointed for the faithful a festival and a joy and for the people of Thy creed a time of assembly and gathering, from every misdeed we did, ill work we sent ahead, or evil thought we secretly conceived, the repentance of one who does not harbor a return to sin and who afterwards will not go back to offense, an unswerving repentance rid of doubt and wavering.

So accept from us,be pleased with us,and fix us within it! O ALLAH,provide us with fear of the threatened punishment and yearning for the promised reward, so that we may find the pleasure of that for which we supplicate Thee the sorrow of that from which we seek sanctuary in Thee! And place us with Thee among the repenters, those upon whom Thou hast made Thy love obligatory and from whom Thou hast accepted the

return to obeying Thee!O Most Just of the just! O ALLAH,show forbearance toward our fathers and our mothers and all the people of our religion,those who have gone and those who will pass by,until the Day of Resurrection! O ALLAH,bless our prophet MUHAMMAD and his Household,as Thou hast blessed Thy angels brought nigh, bless him and his Household,as Thou hast blessed Thy prophets sent out, bless him and his Household,as Thou hast blessed Thy righteous servants and better than that,O Lord of the worlds! a blessing whose benediction will reach us, whose benefit will attain to us,and through which our supplication may be granted! Thou art the most generous of those who are beseeched, the most sufficient of those in whom confidence is had, the most bestowing of those from whom bounty is asked,and Thou art powerful over everything!.

('What is the excuse of him who remains heedless of entering that house after theopening of the door and the setting up of the pointer? It is Thou who hast raised the price against Thyself to the advantage of Thy servants,desiring their profit in their trade with Thee, their triumph through reaching Thee and their increase on account of Thee, for Thou hast said (blessed is Thy Name and high art Thou exalted(, )whoso brings a good deed shall have ten the like of it,and those brings an evil deed shall only be recompensed the like of it).
