Thul Hijjah

Shaikhul Islam Hazrath Fareedudeen (R.A.) states, that on the first night of Zil Hijjah read 2 rakaats of Nafil Salaah. In the first rakaat after Surah Fateha read the first 3 verses of Surah In-aam. In the second rakaat after Surah Fateha read Surah Ikhlaas, once. The reward of one Hajj will be granted to the person who reads this Salaah. Sayedina Baba Fareed  states that a person who was a great sinner passed away. People who were aware of his state were afraid as to what punishment would be metered out to him in the grave. The night of his passing, a pious man dreamt of him, and questioned him as to how Allah S.W.T had dealth with him. He replied to the pious man that when people had buried me and left, the angels of punishment had started to appear in my grave, and as they were about to punish me, Allah ordered them to leave me alone, He had forgiven me. The angels wanted to know from Allah as to what the reason was that He had forgiven me, for I was a great faasiq (sinner), how can I be entitled to paradise. Allah said to his angels that indeed what you have said about him being a sinner is true, however when the month of Zil Hijjah dawned upon him, on the first night of Zil Hijjah he used to recite this Salaah. For reciting this Salaah, I have forgiven all his sins.


The Importance of the first 10 Days of Zil Hijjah

Sayedina Baba Fareed Ganje Shaker R.A. has stated that Allah S.W.T. will forgive one who reads Surah Walfajr for the first day of Zil Hijjah. It is a very big reward for one who recites this Surah for the entire month.

On the first day after Fajr namaaz read a 100 times,



"La Ilaaha Illalaahu Wahdahu La Shareekalu, Lahul Mulku, Wa La Hul Hamdu, Wa Huwa A’la Kuli Shayin Qadeer."


On the second day after Fajr Namaaz read 100 times,



"Ashadu An La Ilaaha Illalahu Wahdahu La Shareekalu, Ahadan Samadan Lam Yatakhiz Saahibataw Wa La Walada."



On the third day after Fajr Namaaz read 100 times,



"Ashadu An La Ilaaha Illalahu Wahdahu La Shareeka lahu Ahadan, Samadam, Lam Yalid, Wa Lam Yoolad, Wa Lam Yakul Lahu Kufoowan Ahadd."



On the forth day after Fajr Namaaz read 100 times,



"Ashadu An La Ilaaha Illalahu Wahdahu La Shareekalahu Lahul Mulku, Wa Lahul Hamdu, Yuhyi, Wa Yumeetu, Wa Huwa Hayyun La Yamootu Abadan, Zul Jalaali Wal Ikraami Bi Ya Dihil Khairu, Wa Huwa A’la Kuli Shayin Qadeer."



On the fifth day after Fajr Namaaz read 100 times,



"SubhaanaMan LamYazal Rabban Raheeman."

On the sixth day after Fajr Salaah read what one reads on the first day and continue this way for the whole month. Ten thousand good deeds will be written on one's naame a'maal and one will gain the sawaab of reading the Taurath (the book revealed unto Musa A.S.) 10 000 times and also 10 000 sins of one will be forgiven. Sayedina Shaikul Mashaikh Baba Fareedudeen R.A. states that if a person reads on the first Jummah of Zil Hijjah 6 rakaats of Salaah with 3 salaams and in every rakaath after Surah Fateha reads 15 times Surah Ikhlaas and after the salaam reads 10 times

,

One will receive great rewards. Any person keeping fast on the 8th of Zil Hijjah will receive the sawaab of 12 000 years of Ibaadath. A sawaab of 24 000 years will be awarded to the person who keeps fast on the 9th of Zil Hijjah93 and any person, who on the day of Eid, does not eat or drink before the Eid salaat will gain the sawaab of 6000 years of Ibaadath. One may also read 2 rakaats of Salaah on the night of Arafaat, the rewards in doing so are the sawaab of a 1000 Hajj. In every rakaat after Surah Fateha read 100 times Ayatul Kursi. Also on the night of Arafat, it is recommended that one should recite 100 rakaats of Salaah, in each rakaat after Surah Fateha recite three times Surah Ikhlaas. After completion of this Salaah recite the following Dua,



"Subhanal ladhi Fis Samaa-I Arshuhu, Subhanal ladhi Fil Ardi Qudratuhu, Subhanal ladhi Fil bahri sabeelahu, Subhanal ladhi fin naari Sultaanuhu, subhanal ladhi fil jannati rahmatuhu, subhanal ladhi fil hawaa-I ruhuhu, subhanal ladhi fil qabri qadaa-uhu, subhanal ladhi rafa’s samaai, subhanal ladhi wa-da-al arda, subhanal ladhi la malja wa la manja minhu illa ilaihi."

"Glory is to The One Who was always there and will always remain; Glory is to The One Whose Throne is in the heavens and Whose Power is on earth; Glory is to The One Whose path is in the ocean; Glory is to The One Whose authority is in the fire; Glory is to The One Whose mercy is in paradise; Glory is to The One Whose breath is in the wind; Glory is to The One Whose decree is in the grave; Glory is to The One Who raised the sky and Glory is to The One Who placed the earth; Glory is to The One from Whom there is no shelter or concealment, but to turn unto Him."

In another narration it is mentioned that on the night of Arafat, one can also read two rakaats, in each rakaat recite 100 times Surah Ikhlaas after Surah Fateha. The reward for its performance is very great. On the day of Arafah, one should recite in the early part of the morning, two rakaats of Salaah. In each rakaat, read Surah Fateha with Bismillah at the beginning and Aameen at the end. After Surah Fateha recite Surah Al Kaafiroon with Bismillah three times, thereafter recite Surah Ikhlaas with Bismillah three times. After the performance of this Salaah, ask ones needs of Allah Ta-ala, Allah will accept one’s Dua and grant ones needs. Also on the day of Arafat one should recite two rakaats of Salaah, in each rakaat after Surah Fateha, recite three times Surah Ikhlaas, after salaam recite one hundred times Surah Ikhlaas, and complete it with the following Tahleelaat, by reciting these Tahleelaat, Hell-fire will become Haraam for the reciter.



"La ilaha illalahu a’dadal layaali wad duhooru, La ilaha illalahu a’dada amwaajil buhoor, La ilaha illalahu a’dadar Riyaahi fil barri wal bahri, La ilaha illalahu a’dada fil baraari was suhoori, La ilaha illalahu minal yaumi ila yaumi yunfakhu fis soori, La ilaha illalahu a’dadash shauki was Shajari, La ilaha illalahu a’dadash shi’ri wal madri, La ilaha illalahu a’dadal Khawaatiri waz zunooni, La ilaha illalahu a’dada lamhil uyooni, La ilaha illalahu Khairum Mima Yajma-oon, La ilaha illalahu fil laili idha A’s-a’s was subhi idha tanafas, wa salalawhu a’la khairi khalqihi muhammadiw wa a’lihi ajma’een, a’dada ma ahaata bihi Ilmuhu, wa jaza bihi qalmuhu, wa nafadhat feehi, mashiyatuhu wa salama tasleeman katheera."

"There is none worthy of worship but Allah, as much as the nights and moments; There is none worthy of worship but Allah, as much as the waves of the oceans; There is none worthy of worship but Allah, as much as the winds in the land and sea; There is none worthy of worship but Allah, as much as what the jungles and deserts contain. There is none worthy of worship but Allah, from today until the day when the trumpet is blown; There is none worthy of worship but Allah, as much as thorns and trees; There is none worthy of worship but Allah, as much as hair and clay; There is none worthy of worship but Allah, as much as thoughts and suspicions; There is none worthy of worship but Allah, as much as the blinking of eyes; There is none worthy of worship but Allah, better than what they gather for; There is none worthy of worship but Allah, during the night as it departs and the dawn as it brightens. May Allah send salutations upon the best of His creation, Sayyidunaa Muhammad SAW and all his family, as much as His knowledge encompasses and His Pen records, and His Will decrees and may He send abundant blessings upon them."

Any person choosing to read a 1000 times Surah Ikhlaas on the day of Arafaat will receive anything he desires of Allah Ta-ala.It is also recommended that on the Day of Arafat as the time of sunset approaches, one should recite the following Thana of Allah one hundred times."



"Bismillahi ma sha Allahu la haula wa la quwata illah billah, bismillah ma sha Allahu la yasooqul khaira illalaahu, bismillahi ma sha Allahu la
yakhshifus soo-a illalaahu, bismillahi ma sha Allahu kulu ni’matin minallaah, bismillahi ma sha Allahul khairu kullahu biyadil laahi, bismillahi ma sha Allahi la yasrifus soo-a illalaahu, bismillahi ma sha Allahu mulkan min ni’matin fa minallah."

"In the Name of Allah just as Allah willed, there is no power nor mightexcept from Allah; In the name of Allah just as Allah willed, none can manifest good except Allah; In the name of Allah just as Allah willed, none can remove evil except Allah; In the name of Allah just as Allah willed, every blessing is from Allah; In the Name of Allah just as Allah willed, all good is in the Hand of Allah; In the name of Allah just as Allah willed, none can protect against evil except Allah; In the name of Allah just as Allah willed, every single blessing is from Allah."

On the night of Eid-ul-Adha one can read 4 rakaats of Salaah. After every rakaat read Surah Fateha once and Surah Ikhlaas a 100 times; after salaam read Kalima Tamjeed one hundred times and after this read the second kalima, the reward for doing so is immense.



"Glory is to Allah and all praise. I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah, without a partner, He is One God, and we do not worship other than Him, sincerely in our religion for Him, even if the disbelievers hate that."

On the night of Eidul Adha, one should also recite two rakaats of Salaah, after the recitation of Surah Fateha, recite Ayatul Kursi once, and Surah Ikhlaas five times, the reward is equivalent to one performing Hajj. After the Eid Salaah and sermon (Khutbah) on the day of Eid, one should read four rakaats. In the first rakaat after Surah Fateha recite Surah Subuhisma, in the second rakaat Surah Was Shams, in the third rakaat Surah Waduha, and in the last rakaat Surah Alam Nashrah. It is also narrated on the day of Eid, after the eid Salaah and sermon, if one intends to perform Qurbani, then before the act of slaughtering one needs to perform two rakaats of
nafil Salaah, in each rakaat after Surah Fateha one must recite three times Surah Kauthar, therafter read the following Dua,



"Bismillahi Allahu Akbar, Allahuma Hadha Fidaaee, Lahmuha bi lahmihi, wa damuha bi dami, wa jilduha bi jildi, wa azmuha bi-azmi, inna salaati wa nusuki wa mahyaya wa mamaati lillahi rabil a’alameen, la shareekalahu wa bidhalika umirtu wa ana awalul muslimeen, Allahuma taqabal minni kama taqabalta min khaleelika Ibrahima Alaihis salaatu was salaam."

In the Name of Allah, Allah is the Greatest. O’ Allah! This is my sacrifice; its flesh is for my flesh, its blood is for my blood, its bones are for my bones. Verily, my prayer, my sacrifice, my life and my death are for Allah, The Lord of the worlds; He has no partner, and by this I have been commanded, and I am the first of those who have submitted. O’ Allah! Accept this from me just as You accepted from Your close friend, Nabi Ibraheem A.S.

On the last day of Zil Hijjah keep fast and after Salaatul Esha read 2 rakaats of Salaah, in every rakaat after Surah Fateha read 100 ayats, meaning read from Surah Subihisma to Surah Wadduha. Allah will forgive your entire sins. After this read this dua below 7 times,



"Allahuma Ma A’miltu Min A’malin Fi Hadthi His Sanati, Mimma Nahay Tani A’nhu, Wa Lam Tardahu, Wa Naseetuhu Wa Lam Tansahu, Wa
Hamalta A’nni Ba’da U’qoobatee, Wa Da-Autanee ilat Taubati Ijraami Ilayka, Allahuma Fa Inni Astaghfirukka Minha Ya Ghaffooru Fagh Fir
Lee, Wa Ma A’miltu Min A’malin Tardeehi, Wa Wa-A’tani Alaihis Thawaabu Fa Ta Qabaluhu Minni, Wa La Taqta-oo’ Rajaa-I Ya Azeemar Rajaa-i."

"O’ Allah! Whatever I have done of an action that You have prohibited me from doing and You were not pleased with it, and I forgot it but You did not forget it, and You have overlooked it after Your power to punish me, and You called me to repentance after I transgressed against You. O’ Allah! Verily, I seek Your forgiveness from it, O’ Oft-Forgiving, so forgive me; and what I have done of an action that You are pleased with and have promised me reward for it, do accept it from me, and do not cut off my hopes, O’ Great One of hopes."

 

 

Intro to Thul Hijjah

Shaikhul Islam Hazrath Fareedudeen (R.A.) states, that on the first night of Zil Hijjah read 2 rakaats of Nafil Salaah.

In the first rakaat after Surah Fateha read the first 3 verses of Surah In-aam. In the second rakaat after Surah Fateha read Surah Ikhlaas, once. The reward of one Hajj will be granted to the person who reads this Salaah. Sayedina Baba Fareed  states that a person who was a great sinner passed away. People who were aware of his state were afraid as to what punishment would be metered out to him in the grave. The night of his passing, a pious man dreamt of him, and questioned him as to how Allah S.W.T had dealth with him. He replied to the pious man that when people had buried me and left, the angels of punishment had started to appear in my grave, and as they were about to punish me, Allah ordered them to leave me alone, He had forgiven me. The angels wanted to know from Allah as to what the reason was that He had forgiven me, for I was a great faasiq (sinner), how can I be entitled to paradise. Allah said to his angels that indeed what you have said about him being a sinner is true, however when the month of Zil Hijjah dawned upon him, on the first night of Zil Hijjah he used to recite this Salaah. For reciting this Salaah, I have forgiven all his sins.

Thul Qa`dah

The duas mentioned for the other months should also be read in Zil Qadah. Hazrath Abu Huraira (R.A.) reported that in Zil Qadah there is one night which is equal to a 170 years and that this night is the 5th of Zil Qaid.

Anyone who recites Quran, performs Zikrullah or even his salaat Allah will grant him the sawaab of the Ibaadath of 170 years. On this night read 2 rakaats for elevating one's position. In every rakaat after Surah Fateha read Surah Muzammil once. After salaam read 3 times Surah Yaseen. At the end of Zil Qaid after Namaaz-e-Chaast read 2 rakaats of Nafil. After Surah Fateha read Surah Qadr 3 times in each rakaat. After salaam read 11 times Durood Shareef and 11 times Surah Fateha. Thereafter go into sujood and ask Allah for whatever one desires, Insha Allah, Allah will grant, one's Duas.

 

Rajab

 

On sighting of the moon of the month of Rajab, One must read the following Dua,

1

"Allahuma Baarikh Lana Fi Rajabin Wa Sha'baan Wa Ballighna Ramadaana."

"O Allah, Bless us in Rajab and Sha’baan, and allow us to reach the month of Ramadaan."

On the first night after Mughrib Salaah, read 20 rakaats in two rakaat units. In each rakaat after Surah Fateha read Surah Ikhlaas. After Esha read two rakaats nafil, reading in the first rakaat after Surah Fateha Surah Alam Nashrah and then Surah Ikhlaas 3 times. In the second rakaat after Surah Fateha read each of these Surah’s once, Surah Alam Nashrah, Surah Ikhlaas, Surah Falaq and Surah Naas once. After completion of salaam, one should read “La Illaaha Illalah” 30 times, and read durood shareef 30 times, and then humbly present your request to Allah, Insha Allah it will be granted.

Sayedina Khwaja Nizaamudeen Mehboobe Elahi  states that in the month of Rajab, ones Dua’s are readily accepted by Allah Ta-ala. There are four nights in this month that are considered to be very auspicious, the first night, the first Friday night, the 15th night and the 27th night of Lailatul Me’raaj. The first Friday night of the month of Rajab, is known as Lailatul Raghaaib. On this night, saints and pious people are granted many of Allah Ta-ala’s grace and bounty. On this night, after Mughrib Salaah read 6 rakaats with 3 salaams. In each rakaat after Surah Fateha read Surah Ikhlaas 3 times. After completion of this Salaah, read another 12 rakaats with 6 salaams. In each rakaat after Surah Fateha recite Surah Qadr 3 times, followed by Surah Ikhlaas 12 times, thereafter read the following Durood 70 times;

11

"Allahuma Salli A’la Muhamadinin Nabiyil Ummiyi Wa A’la Aalihi."


Then go into Sajda and read 70 times,

1

"Subbuhun Qudoosun, Raabuna Wa Rabbul Malaaikati War Roohi."

Then before the second Sajda recite;

11

"Rabigh Fir War Hum Wa Tajawaz Amma Ta’lam, Fa Innaka Antal Aleemul A’azam."

in recite also 70 times

1

"Subbuhun Qudoosun, Raabuna Wa Rabbul Malaaikati War Roohi."

Then go into the second Sajda and recite the same dua as above

1

Then also read in the same sajda 70 times

1

Then wake up and go into sajda again and ask all your requirements of Allah, Insha Allah, Allah will grant it to you.

Sayedina Khwaja Nizaamudeen R.A. has stated that one who reads this Salaah on Lailatul Raghaaib will not die in that year. Sayedina Khwaja Nizaamudeen R.A. should read this Salaah in Jamaath.

 

The Recitation of Istighfaar in the month of Rajab

It is essential for one to recite daily 100 times this Istighfaar

1

"Astagfirullaha Li Zunoobi, Kuliha, Siriha Wa Jahriha, Sageeriha Wa Kabeeriha, Zawhiriha Wa Baatiniha, Qadeemiha Wa Jadeediha, Awaliha Wa Aakhiriha, Wa Atoobu Ilaihi, Allahumagh Firrli Bi Rahmatika."

"I Seek forgiveness from Allah for all my sins, that which is done in secret or openly, big or small, that which is visible and that which is hidden, that which is old or that which is new, that which is from the beginning or that which is recent and last, I repent to Him, O’ Allah, Forgive me!, By Your Mercy."

Any person who recites every Friday 100 times Surah Ikhlaas in the month of Rajab, on the day of Resurrection a light (Noor) will emanate from within him, and this light (Noor) will enter him into paradise. Any person who recites 70000 times Istighfaar in the month of Rajab will be forgiven by Allah.

In the Hadithe Qudsi, it is narrated that Allah S.W.T says that any person who recites the following Istighfaar 1000 times daily in the month of Rajab, will definitely witout doubt attain Allah’s forgiveness.

111

"Astaghfirullah Ya Dhal Jalaali Wal Ikraami Min Jamee’iz Zunoobi Wal Aathaam."

"I ask Allah for His forgiveness, He who is Exalted and Honourable, from all sins and evils.."

 

Ajaa-lbul-lstighfaar

This Istighfaar relates to Sayedina Abdullah Bin Shataal R.A. He was a companion of the Blessed Prophet Muhammed S.A.W. but he was disobedient and sinful. When he passed away, it is said that no one came forward to perform his janaaza nor did anyone accompany his body to the cemetery. Sayedina Jibreel A.S came to Allah's Messenger Muhammed S.A.W and informed him that it is Allah's command that the Messenger S.A.W perform this companions Janaaza and also bury this companion. The Messenger SAW obeyed Allah's command and instructed the Sahabas to do so as well. On the way to the cemetery, it was noticed that the Messenger of Allah SAW was walking on His toes (Tip Toeing) and when his body was placed in the grave the Prophet S.A.W laughed.

On returning home, the Sahabad inquired from the Messenger of Allah S.A.W. about this incident.The Prophet S.A.W replied that He walked on His toes because there was no place for His blessed feet as so many Angels had descended to accompany Sayedina Abdullah's RA.Janaaza. He SAW also replied that when He S.A.W laid the body into the grave, Hoors from Paradise had come, and they were fighting on who was going to give him Sharbath to drink first, seeing this He SAW laughed. Our Nabi SAW proceeded to the house of Sayedina Abdullah Ibn Shatal R.A and on enquiring from his wife, she replied that her husband did not do any good in this world, he drank alcohol, never performed his salaah, he gambled, and never ever kept any fast. But when the month of Rajab used to dawn upon him, he used to read this Isttghfaar regularly, Our Nabi SA W instructed the sahabah to write the following Istighfaar,

1



"Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

"In the name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Most Merciful I ask Allah for Forgiveness, I ask Allah for Forgiveness, I ask Allah for Forgiveness, He who there is none other worthy of worship except Him, The All Living, The Eternal, I repent to Him, I ask Allah for Forgiveness, and I repent to him from all that which He dislikes, O’ Allah, indeed I ask Your Forgiveness for that which I have done or will do, that which was done by me in secret or openly, You are the predecessor and You are the last, and You have power over everything. O’ Allah, I ask Allah Your Forgiveness for every sin that I have repented for, then returned to it again, I ask Your Forgiveness for that which I wished would be for You, and then I mixed it with that which did not gain Your Pleasure, and I ask Your Forgiveness for that which I promised You, and then I broke my promise, I ask Your forgiveness for that which my desire called me so that I may attain easiness in, and that was forbideen by You, I ask Your forgiveness for all the favours You bestowed on me, and which I used to be disobedient to You, I ask Your Forgiveness in those sins that none other can forgive me for except You, that no other can know except You, that no other can bypass except Your Kindness, that no other can save me from except Your Compassion. And I seek Your Forgiveness for every oath that I took and I did not fulfil it, and I seek Your Forgiveness, O’ who there is none other worthy of worship except You, Glory Be to You, Indeed I am of the Transgressors. And Allah sends Saltutation to the best of His Creation, and all the companions of the best of His Creation, My Lord Forgive Me, and have Mercy on ME, You are the best of those whom have Mercy. And I seek Your Forgiveness, O’ You Who Possesses Knowledge of all that is open and hidden, from all my actions that I did during the day, and during the darkness of the night, that which I did publicly, and that which I did alone, those actions that I did secretly and those actions that were done openly, all that whilst You were watching me when I disobeyed You and sinned, O; You who is Kind. And I ask your forgiveness O’ Who there is none other worthy of worship except You, glory be to You, indeed I am of the transgressors, My Lord forgive me, and have mercy on me, You are the best of those whom have mercy. And I ask Your Forgiveness for all that which you made compulsory on me, during the day and parts of the night, and I left it out purposely, or mistakenly, or forgetfully, and I am answerable for those obligations, And I ask Your Forgiveness for every tradition (sunnah) of the traditions (sunnan) of the Master of all the Messengers, the Seal of Prophethood, Muhammed S.A.W. that I have left out due to ignorance or laziness or slumber or that I undermined its importance, and I am admonished. And I ask Your forgiveness, there is none worthy of worship except You Alone, there is no partners onto You, glory be to You, the Lord of the Worlds, for You is the ownership, and for You is all praise, You are sufficient for us, You are the best of guardians, and the best of Masters, and You are the best Helper. Allah sends Salutations on Muhammed S.A.W to the number of all those who send saltutions to him, and also the number of those who don’t send salutations on Him, By Your Mercy, O You Most Merciful of those Who have Mercy."

The Salaah of Sayedina Owaise Qarni R.A. This Salaah is read on the third, fourth, and fifth of Rajab at about ten or eleven o’ clock. In the morning take Ghusl, after Ghusl recite four rakaats with one salaam. In this four rakaats after Surah Fateha read any Surah and after Salaam read 70 times;

1

"La Ilaha Illalahul Malikul Haqul Mubeen, Laytha Kamithlihi Shay-un’ waHuwa Sameeúl Baseer."

“There is none worthy of worship except Allah, the True, Clear King, nothing resembles him, indeed He is the All-Hearing, All-Seeing."

Thereafter read 4 rakaats again and after Surah Fateha read Surah Nasr once & after the salaam read this Dua 70 times;

11

"Aqwa Muéenun Wa Ahdaa Wa Keelun, Bi Haqhi Iyyaaka Na’Budu Wa Iyyaaka Nastaéen."

“The strongest of The Helpers, The Most Guided of the Entrusted, By the virtue of You alone do we worship and You alone do we ask for help.”

Thereafter read 4 rakaats Salaah again and after Surah Fateha read 3 times Surah Ikhlaas in each rakaat. After Salaam read 70 times Surah Alam Nashrah. Thereafter, pick up your hands and rub it on your chest. Then go into Sajda, recite Durood Shareef and ask Allah to accept your Duas. It is requested that for 3 days the Ghusl be taken. From the time of the Ghusl to the time when the Salaah iscompleted it is required that one should not indulge in any worldly talks. One would attain one’s goal or desires soon.

Sayedina Sultanul Mashaaikh Nizaamudeen Mehboob-e-Elahi R.A in his Fawaidul Fuwaad has stated that a person by the name of Moeenudeen used to debate about Islam on an intellectual level. People were surprised at his knowledge and enquired how he had achieved this level of Ilm. He Bstated that when he had reached the age of maturity, he had once read this Salaah of Sayedina Owaise Qarni , after performing this Salaah, he begged Allah to grant him this knowledge that he had not received in his youth. Allah Ta-Ala granted him his request and increased his knowledge to such an extent that he could easily debate or explain any issue that
confronted him.

The 15th Night of Rajab

This night is also known as the night of Istiftaah. There are numerous Salaah and Dua’s to be read on this night. There also numerous benefits in it. On the 15th day of Rajab which is known as the Day of Istiftaah, one should fast and recite 50 rakaats of Salaah at Ishraaq in units of two’s. In each rakaat after Surah Fateha recite Surah Ikhlaas, Surah Falaq and Surah Naas.

Our Nabi S.A.W. has stated that anyone who performs this Salaah will be like one who has just been born, and on the day of Qiyaamah one will be given the status of a Shaheed. One will be given the sawaab of three months of fasting, Rajab, Sha’baan and Ramadaan and one will be given the sawaab of Haj and Umra equivalent to the number of hairs on one’s body. Also the reciter will not experience the darkness and narrowness of the grave. On the day of Ressurection, when one will awaken from the grave, with one will be a light/Noor, 70000 angels will give one the glad tidings of Paradise, until the ones death, one will experience the signs of the coming of the angels and after ones death Sayedina Jibraeel A.S will pay a daily visit to ones grave. After the trumpet is blown, Sayedina Jibraeel A.S. will give one to drink from the Aabe Kauthar and he will escourt one personally before Allah Who will then ask His servant what His Servant Desires. A thousand requisites of one will be granted by Allah, one will be granted the Shafaáth of a 1000 men, and one will enter paradise with the Prophets and the Martyrs.

Sayedina Akramah R.A. has stated that whosoever read the following Dua on the Day of Istiftaah, Allah Ta-Ala will open 70 Doors of Rahmah and Mercy for Him.

1

"Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem, Ya Musabibal Asbaab, Ya Mufattihal Abwaab, Ya Muqalibal Quloobi Wal Absaar, Ya Da-imas Sha’ni, Ya
Mukhrijan Nabaati, Allahumaf Tah Alayya Abwaaba Fadhlika Bi Rahmatika Ya Arhamar Raahimeen."

"In the name of Allah, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful, O’You who is the Originator of all motives, O’ You Who is the opener to all doors, O’ You who is the Alternator of Hearts and Sight, O You Who is forever constant in Prestige, O’You Who is the extractor of all that the earth bears, O’Allah, Open for me the doors of Your Excellence by Your Mercy, O’Most Merciful of those Who have mercy."

In Seere Muhammadi it is stated that Sayedina Sayed Mohammed Banda Nawaaz Ghesu Daraaz R.A. recited the following Dua-e-Istiftaah daily after every Asar Salaah. Sayedina Shah Yadullah Husseini advised that the Dua-e-Istiftaah be recited on every night of Lailatul Raghaaib, on the night of Istiftaah, every night of Shabe Baraat, at the time of ifthaar, and on the two eids. On the day of Istiftaah, there are various Salaahs to be performed. It is narrated that the 13th, 14th and 15th day of Rajab, one should keep fasts. On the 15th day that is the day of Istiftaah, after zawal time, one should make ghusl, and after ghusl one should make 8 rakaats of
Salaah. In the first rakaat after Surah Fateha recite Surah Waduha. In the second rakaat, Surah Alam Nashrah. In the third rakaat Surah Qadr, in the fourth rakaat Surah Zilzalah, in the fifth rakaat Surah Wal Aadiyaat, in the sixth rakaat Surah Takaasur, in the seventh rakaat Surah Al Asr, and in the last rakaat, Surah Waylul Likuli. After the Zohar Salaah one should recite eight rakaats, and in the first rakaat, Surah Feel, in the second Surah Quraish, in the third Surah Kaafiroon, in the fourth Surah Nasr, in the fifth rakaat Surah Lahab, in the sixth rakaat Surah Ikhlaas, in the seventh Surah Falaq and in the eight rakaat Surah Naas. As the first period of
Salaatul Asar comes in, it is recommended that after the performance of these Salaahs, one should recite the following Surahs twice, Surah Fateha, Surah Ikhlaas, Ayatul Kursi, Aamanar Rasool, Surah Inaam, Surah Kahf, Surah Maryam, Taha, Alif Laam Sajdah, Yaseen, Was Sawfaat, Hameem Sajdah, Hameem Ain Seen Qaaf, Dukhaan, Fatah, Waqiyah, Mulk, Inshiqaaq, and then till the end of the Quran Shareef. Then recite the following dua as follows:

Sayedina Muhammad S.A.W. just as You have sent salutations, peace, blessings, mercy and poured Your mercy upon Sayedina Ibrahim A.S. and the family of Sayedina Ibrahim A.S., verily You are Most Worthy of praise, Most Glorious. Have mercy on my insignificance, my loneliness, my humility, my awareness of You, my poverty and my privation in front of You, for indeed my dependence is in You and my humbleness is for You; I invoke You with the call of a humble, insignificant, aware, fearful, solicitude,
desperate, needy, nothingness, lowly, returning to You, seeking Your reward, admitting his sins, seeking forgiveness for his shortcomings, the call of one who submits to You with a call of trust, even if You reject it, whose misfortune is great because of his sins; the call of one who is sad, apologising, weak, has committed many offences, desperate, submissive.

O’ Allah!

Nabi `Isa A.S., O’ Protector of the daughter of Nabi Shu`ayb A.S, O’ One Who responded to the call of Nabi Musa A.S., I mplore You to send salutations upon Sayedina Muhammad S.A.W. and his family, to forgive me all my sins, save me from Your punishment, and obligate for me Your Pleasure, Your safety, Your forgiveness, Your gardens and Your excellence. And I ask You to untie every knot between
myself and who will harm me, to open for me every door of Your mercy, to make gentle for me every hardship, to ease for me every difficulty, to make voiceless every tongue that speaks bad about me, to suppress for me every tyrant, to prevent from harming me every oppressor and envious one, to be sufficient for me against the evil of every one who attempts to cause division between myself and obedience to You. Make my heart firm against the evil of Your servants, O’ One Who restrains the rebellious Jinn and overpowers the transgressing devils, Who makes humble the hopes of those who seek salvation, Who returns the schemes of those who have authority against the weak. I implore You through Your power over what You will, and through the ease that You set for what You will, to decree for me the fulfilment of my needs, from what You will, O’ Most Merciful of those who have mercy."

 

Shabe Me'raaj

The 27th night of Rajab al Murajab is the Lailatul Me’raj (night of Ascension). On this night Allah S.W.T. sent Sayedina Jibreel A.S. to the beloved Messenger Muhammed S.A.W. and brought the beloved Habeeb Muhammed S.A.W. to him. This entire course of events is mentioned in the Quran and in the narrations from the beloved Habeeb S.A.W. himself. In a small portion of time, the beloved Habeeb Muhammed S.A.W. was taken from Masjidul Harram in Makka, to Masjidul Aqsa in Jerusalem, it was here that the Messenger S.A.W.met with all the previous Prophets of Allah S.W.T. and then led them in Salaah. From Baitul Maqdas, Sayedina Jibreel A.S. escorted the Prophet S.A.W. on the ascension of the heavens, and right unto Sidratul Muntaha. At the point of Sidratul Muntaha, there is a huge Tree. On every leaf, there was the Illumination of Allah. The entire tree was light upon light. Sidratul Muntaha is the culmination point for all of creation. When the Prophet S.A.W. proceeded further than this point, Sayedina Jibreel A.S. himself did not continue escorting him. The Prophet S.A.W. enquired as to why he did not proceed, and Sayedina Jibreel A.S. informed him, “O’ Messenger of Allah S.W.T., I cannot proceed even one step from this point, if I have too, I will be burnt by the ‘Great Veils’. From this point, the
Messenger S.A.W. then proceeded from this point alone. The Prophet S.A.W. proceeded even further than the great Arsh and throne of Allah S.W.T. The Habeeb S.A.W. was blessed with seeing Allah S.W.T. It was also on this Me’raj, that Allah blessed the HabeebS.A.W., that he saw Paradise and Hell-fire and the various other creations of Allah. What the Messenger S.A.W. was granted permission to see, is mentioned in various Ahaadith. On this night Allah made Salaah compulsory 5 times a day. In summary, after the Prophet S.A.W. saw Allah S.W.T., The Creator of all Creation, and all that Allah has prepared for His Servants, He S.A.W. returned to Makka and to his bed in such a short time, that his bed was still warm. This entire narration is what is called Me’raj, and this was the physical ascension (Me’raj). There are those who claim that Me’raj and ascension was spiritual and not physical, this is their incorrect deductions. In reality, the Me’raj was physical, and this is the opinion of the great predecessors and Ulama.

This is a very important night for the believers, as Allah Ta-Ala presented to our Messenger Muhammed S.A.W. for His Ummah the 5 times Salaah and the 30 days of fasting in the month of Ramadaan. Allah Ta-Ala has shown His ‘Deedaar” to the Prophet S.A.W. On this night Allah sends unlimited blessings on His pious servants who spend this night in Ibaadath. On this night one should read 6 rakaats of Salaah with 3 salaams. In each rakaat after Surah Fateha, one should read 7 times Surah Ikhlaas. After performing this Salaah one should request ones needs of Allah Ta-Ala. If this Salaah is read with intense sincerity, then before one wakes up from ones place of worship, Allah will grant ones request, Insha Allah. Also one will be rewarded the reward of the performance of 25 haj, the sawaab of giving charity equivalent to a mountain, and on the Day of Resurrection, one will be of the peaceful ones. One should also read 12 rakaats with one salaam. After reading Surah Fateha, recite any Surah one wants to read, after Salaam read 100 times
Durood Shareef and 100 times the Third Kalima, thereafter read 100 times Astaghfirullaha Wa Atubu Elaihi. After these three recitals go into Sajda and ask ones desires of Allah. Shaikul Islam, Sayedina Fareedul Haq R.A. has stated that on this night, one can read 100 rakaats of Salaah. In each rakaat, read Surah Fateha and 5 times Surah Ikhlaas, after its completion read 100 times Durood Shareef
and 100 times the Third Kalima, therafter go into sajda and ask ones needs of Allah Ta-Ala, Insha Allah it will be granted. Sayedina Fareedud Deen R.A. has stated that it is mentioned in the book of Sayedina Khwaja Moinudeen Gareeb Nawaaz R.A. that this night is the night of Rahmat-e-Elaahi. One must benefit from the blessings of this night. Seventy thousand angels carry the tray of lights to the house of one who is solely confined to worshipping Allah and seeking His forgiveness on this night. This tray of lights will be kept on the persons head. Sayedina Khwaja Gareeb Nawaaz R.A. asks how a Muslim can deprive himself from the blessings of such a night. Sayedina Sultaanul Mashaaikh Nizaamudeen R.A has stated that one can read 4 rakaats of Salaah on this night, and on its completion, one can ask Allah for long life and also for protection from poverty and starvation. In the last 3 days of Rajab if one reads 300 times Istighfaar, Allah will pardon all of ones sins. It is also a Fadheelat and excellent act to complete the recital of one Quran Shareef in these last three days. Charity given on these last 3 days will act as a shield between one and the Hell-fire. In these last three days of Rajab if one brings peace between two people, Allah will grant one the reward of 100 years of fasting.

It is also stated that the one who performs 12 rakaats of Salaah on the last day of Rajab, Allah will prolong one’s age, grant one comfort in life, protect one from sins and allow one to enjoy the auspiciousness of Martyrdom. In these 12 rakaats, one must recite after Surah Fateha. Ayatul Kursi, Surah Kaafiroon, Surah Ikhlaas 3 times in every rakaat, and after Salaam read the following Dua,

1

"Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem, Ya Ajallu min Kuli Jaleelin, YA Akramu min Kuli Kareemin, Ya A’zamu Min Kuli Azeemin, Ya Arhamu min Kuli
Raheemin, Ya Aázzu Min Kuli Azeezin, Ya Auhadu min Kuli Waheedin, Ya Ahadu Khairun min Kuli Ahadin, Anta Rabbi, La Rabba Li Siwaaka, Ya Ghiyaathal Mustagheetheen Wa Rajaa-hum, Agheethni Bi Fadhlika, Wa Mudda fi Umri Maddan Taweelan, Fi Ridaakha, Bil Aáfiyathi, Bi Rahmatika Ya Wahhaabu, Ya Kareemu, Innaka A’la Kuli Shay-in Qadeer."


In the name of Allah, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful, O’You The Most Exalted of all exalted ones, O’You the Most Honourable
of all honourable ones, O’You Most Merciful of all the merciful ones, O’You Most Respected of all the respected ones, O You the Unique of all, O’You the only One in Oneness, You are My Lord, there is no Lord for me besides You, O’ You The Provider to all those seeking blessings, and desires, Provide for me through Your Excellence, Extend my life for me, an extension in seeking Your Pleasure, By Your Compassion, and by Your Mercy, O’You Who is The Giver, O’You the Most Generous, Indeed You have the Most Power over everything."

Safar

After the sighting of the moon of Safar, one should read this Dua three times:

"Allahumma Farijna Bi Dhukhoolis Safari, Wakhtimhu Bil Khairi Waz Zafari Was Rif Anni Wa An Jami Il Muslimeena Sharrahu."

"O’ Allah grant us relief when the month of Safar enters unto us, and conclude it with good and success, and protect me and all the Muslims from the Evil in this month."

On the first night of Safar

Make Dua for oneself and for all the Muslims. Thereafter read four rakaats of Salaah between the Fard of Esha and Witr. In the First rakaat, after Surah Fateha read Surah Al Kafirroon 11 times, in the second rakaat after Surah Fateha read Surah Ikhlaas 11 times. In the third and fourth rakaat respectively after Surah Fateha recite Surah Falaq and Surah Naas 11 times each respectively. Thereafter read 70 times the third Kalima and seventy times the fourth verse of Surah Fateha.

 

This should be followed by Durood Shareef 10 times and read this Dua once: "Allahuma Inni A’oozubika min Shari Hadthas Shahri, Wa Min Shari Kulli Baliyatin wa Shidatinil Lati Qadarta Feehi, Ya Dahru, Ya Dayhooru, Ya Dayhaaru, Ya Azalu, Ya Abadu, Ya Kaa-inu, Ya Kaynaanu, Ya Kaynoonu, Ya Mubdi-oo, Ya Mueedu, Ya Dhal Arshil Majeedi Anta Taf-a’lu Ma Tureedu; Allahummah Ris Bi A’ynikal Latee Laa Tanaamu Nafsi, Wa Ahli, Wa Maali, Wa Waladi, Wa Deeni, Wa Dunyaayal Latee Ibtalaytani Bi

Suhbatiha Bi Hurmatil Abraar Wal Akhyaar, Bi Rahmatika Ya ARhamar Raahimeen."

"O’ Allah, Indeed I seek protection in You, from the evil that descends in this month, from all the evil calamities and difficulties that You have destined in it,Ya Dahru, Ya Dayhuroo, Ya Dayhaaroo Ya Azalu, Ya Abadoo, Ya Kaainu, Ya Kaynaanu, Ya Kaynoonu, Ya Mubdioo, Ya

Mueedhoo , O You who is the owner of the exalted throne, You do that which You wish, O’ Allah, by Your Eyes which do not Sleep, guard and protect my life, my family, my wealth, my children, my religion, and my material attachments, through which you have chosen to test me with, (I plead with you) by the sacredness of those virtuous and chosen servants of Yours (protect me), by Your Mercy, O’ Most Merciful of those who have Mercy."

By reciting the Dua below, Allah will keep away 70000 Balaas (calamities) and Fitnas (tribulations) away from ones home. The Dua is;

"Allahuma Ya Shadeedal Quwa, Wa Ya Shadeedal Mihaal, Ya A’zeezu, Dhalat Bi I’zatika Jamee-u’ Ma Khalaqta, Fakfini A’n Sharri Jamee-I’

Khalqika, Ya Muhsinu, Ya Mujmilu, Ya Mufadhilu, Ya Muni’mu, Ya Mukrimu, Ya Lailaha Illa Anta Subhaanaka Inni Kuntu Minaz Zaalimeen,

Fastajabnaalahu, Wa Najaynaahu Minal Ghami, Wa Ka Dhalika Nunjil Mu’mineen Bi Rahmatika Ya Arhamar Raahimeen."

If one has to write out this Dua and hang it on the wall in ones house, one will stay in peace and 1000 barakaat and blessings will appear in one’s home.

In the month of Safar, everyday after every Salaah, it is requested that we read the following Dua, and seek protection for ourselves and our family from all forms of trials and calamities, the dua is as follows:

"A’oozu billahi min share haadthas Zamaani, wa as-ta-eezu bihi min shurooril azmaani, a’oozu bi jalaali wajhika wa kamaali qudratika an

Tujeerani fi haadthihis sanati wa qini sharra ma qadayta feeha, wakrimni fi hadhas Safari bi-akramin nazari, wakhtimli bis salaamati, was

saa’dathi, wa li-ahli baiti, wa li-aulaadi, wali-aqribaa-iee, wali jamee’I Ummati Muhammadin salalawhu alaihi wa sallam, Rabighfir Warhum, Wa

anta Khairur Raahimeen."

"I seek refuge in Allah from the evil of this age, and I seek protection in his refuge from the evils of all times. I seek refuge in the Majesty of Your Countenance and the perfection of Your Power, to grant me protection during this year and save me from the evil that You have decreed to take place in it; and honour me at this time when I have nothing with focusing Your honourable gaze on me. And let me end my life with peace and happiness, and for the people of my household, my children and my relatives, and for the entire Ummah of Sayyidunaa Muhammad SAW. Oh Lord! Forgive and have mercy, for You are the Most Merciful of those who have mercy."

On the last Wednesday of Safar, after sunrise perform ghusl and read two rakaats of Salaate Chaast, in the first rakaat after Surah Fateha read the following Quranic Verses,

 

"Qulil laahumma Maalikal Mulki Ta’til Mulka Man Tashaa-u Wa Tanzi-ul Mulka Miman Tashaa, Wa Tuizzu Man Tashaa-u Wa Tuzilu Man Tashaa-u Biyadikal Khairu Innaka A’la Kuli Shay-in Qadeer. Tulijul Layla Fin Nahaari Wa Tulijun Nahara Fil Layl, Wa Tukhrijul Hayya Minal Mayyiti

Wa Tukhrijul Mayita Minal Hayyi, Wa Tarzuqoo Man Tashaa-u Bi Ghairi Hisaab."

"Say! O’ Muhammed S.A.W , O’ Allah, Lord of Power and rule, You give Power to whom You wish, and You seize Power from whom You wish,

You grant honour to whom You wish and You Humiliate Whom You Wish, In Your Hand is all good, Indeed Thou Has Power over everything.

You cause the alternation of Night to Day, and You cause the alternation of Day to Night, and You bring the Dead from the Living, and You Bring the Living from the Dead, And You grant Sustenance to whom You Wish, with Measuring (And Accountability)."

In the second rakaat after Surah Fateha also read:

"Qulid Ullah Awid Ur Rahmaan, Ayamma Tada’oo FalaHul Asma-Ul Husnaa, Wa La Tajhar Bi Salaatika Wa La Tukhafit Biha, Wabtaghi Bayn

Dhalika Sabeela. Wa Qulil Hamdu Lillahil Ladhi Lam YathaKhiz Waladau, Wa Lam Yakun Lahu Shareekun Fil Mulki, Wa Lam Ya Khun Lahu Waliyum Minazulli Wa Kab Birhu Takbeera."

 

"Say! (O Muhammed S.A.W, Call Him Allah, Or Call Him Rahmaan, By whatever name You call Him, Whatever You call him by, HE has the Most beautiful Names, Do Not Perform Your Prayers Loud, nor too silently, but seek a middle course between them. Say! O’ Muhammed S.A.W, Praise is to Allah, Who begets no Son, and has no Partner in His Kingdom, And He does not need anyone to protect him from humiliation, and Glorify Him for His Greatness and Glory."

 

After the salaam read Durood Shareef and make the following Dua:

"Allahumas Rif A’nni Sharra Haadhal Yaum, Wa’ Simni Min Shaumihi Wa Jannibni A’mma Yukhaafu Feehi Min Nahoosaatihi Wa Karamaatihi, Bi

Fadlika Ya Daafi-a’s Suroori Wa Ya MAalikan Nushoori Bi Rahmatika Ya Arhamar Raahimeen, Wa SalAllahu Ta-a’la A’la Muhammadin Nabiyil

Ummiyi Wa Aalihi Wa Baarik Wa Sallam."

 

One can also read four rakaats on the last Wednesday of Safar. In every rakaat read 70 times Surah Khauthar and 5 times Surah Ikhlaas, after completing the Salaam read the following Dua;

that. I leave in Your protection myself, my religion, my worldly life and the concluding actions of mine and the end of my life. I leave in Your protection my honour and my position amongst Your creation through Your bounty; and I leave in Your protection all those who believe in You and Your Noble Prophet Muhammad S.A.W, for the greatness of Your Omnipotence, Your Power and Your Strength. Verily, the one who leaves everything to You in guaranteed protection, Your forbearance encompasses everything, Your decree is final and You have power over all things. O’ Best Judge of those who judge, O’ Most Swift of those who hold accountable, O’ Most Honourable One Who is sought and Most Generous One Who is asked; O’ Ever Living, Oh Self Sufficient, O’ Eternal Being, O’ Unique One, O’ All Powerful, O’ One, O’ Omnipotent, O’ One Who was not conceived nor does he conceive, and none is like unto Him, O’ Mighty One, O’ One Who grants everything, with Your mercy O’ Most Merciful of those who have mercy. And May Allah send salutations upon Sayyidunaa Muhammad S.A.W, the Seal of Divine Emissaries, and upon his pure and righteous family."

1

"Marhaban Bis Sanatil Jadeedati, Wal Yaumil Jadeedati, Was Saa’til Jadeedati, Marhaban Bil Kaatibi Was Shaheedi, Uktubaa Fi Saheefati,
Bismillah Hir Rahmaanir Raheem, AsHadu Alla Illaaha Illalahu Wah Dahu La Shareekalahu, La Hul Mulku Wa Lahul Hamdu, Yuhyi
wa Yumeetu, Wa Huwa Hayun La Yamootu, Bi Ya Dihil Khairi, Wa Huwa A’la Kuli Shay In Qadeer, Wa Innal Jannata Haqun, Wa Innan Naara
Haqun, Wa Annas Saa-a’ta Aatiyatun La Rayba Fee-ha, Wa Annal Lawha Yab-a’thu Man Fil Quboori."

"The new year is welcome, the new day is welcome, and this new hour is welcome, the writer and the witness are welcome, Write! In my recorded books, in the name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful, I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah. He is One, there is no matter on to him, for Him is ownership (of Everything), and for Him is All Praise, He gives Life, and Brings Death, and He is All Living, He does not Die, In His hands Is the power of all Good, and He is most Capable of Everything. Indeed Paradise is true, Indeed Hell-fire is true, and indeed the final hour is coming, in that there is no doubt, and Indeed Allah will awaken the dwellers of the graves."

Sayedina Syed Muhammed Khwaja Banda Nawaaz R.A. has stated in his book “Jawamiul Kalim” that on the first of Muharram one should read 6 rakaats Nafil Salaah with 3 salaams. In each rakaat after Surah Fateha read Ayatul Kursi once, followed by Surah Ikhlaas 11 times, after every salaam, read three times,

11

"Allahamu Antal Abadul Qadeemu, Wa Hadithi Sanatun Jadeedatun, As Aluka Feehal I’smata Minash Shaitaanir Rajeem, Wa Min Kulli Dhi
Sharrin, Wa Minal Balaaya Wal Aafaati, Wa As Alukal A’una Wal A’dla A’la Hadithi Hin Nafsil Amaarati Bi Soo-ee, Wal Ishtighaala Bima
Yuqaribuni Ilayka, Ya Barrun, Ya Raheemun, Ya Dhal Jalaali Wal Ikraami."

Thereafter read Once:

1

"Al hamdullilahil Ladhi Dhala Kulla Shay-in Bi Azmatihi, Wal Hamdullilahil Ladhi Istaslama Kulla Shay-in Bi Qudratihi, As-Aluhu Bi-Azmatihi, Wa Izzatihi, Wa Mulkihi, Wa Qudratihi, Fi Haadhi Hiss Sanatil Jadeedati, Al Amana Wal Amaana Wal Aafiyata Wal Ghufraana Wa
Ishmata Minash Shaytaan.
"

"All praise is to Allah who overwhelms everything by His greatness, and all Praise is to Allah who by His Greatness everything becomes submissive. I ask Him by His greatness, by His honour, by His ownership and by His power, that in this new year He grants me safety and security, compassion and forgiveness, and protection from Satan."

Any person who recites this Dua 12 times and blows (makes Dum) on water and places this water or washes his body with this water, he will be safeguarded from any unpleasant or strained relationships, and during these hardships and inconvenience, Allah S.W.T. will keep one away from enmity and hardship and protect him from all sickness and hardships.

Also Allah Ta-Ala will keep the Hellfire away from the person who recites this Dua 100 times. The following Dua should be read daily, in the morning and evening during the month of Muharram,

1

"There is no one worthy of worship but Allah alone, He has no partner, to Him belongs all dominion and praise, He gives life and causes death; He is All-Living and does not die, One of Majesty and Honour, in His Hand is all good; and He has power over all things. Oh Allah! There is no one to prevent what You give, and no one to give what You prevent; no one to return what You have decreed; and no one of good fortune can cause benefit, from You comes all good fortune."

The person who provides Ifthaar for the fasting person is like one who provides ifthaar for the entire Ummah of the Prophet S.A.W. It is Makrooh to fast only one day for the 10th or the Day of Ashura. Fasts

1

"Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem, Ya Awalul Awaleen Wa Ya Akhirul Aakhireena, La Ilaha Illa Anta, Khalaqta Awwala Ma Khalaqta Fi Hadthal
Yaumi, Wa Takhluqu Aakhira Ma Takhluqu Fi Hadthal Yaumi, A’Thini Feehi Khaira Ma A’thaytahu Anbiya-aka Wa Asfiyaa-aka Min Thawabil
Balaaya Wa Ma Ashum tahum Feehi Minal Karaamati, Bi Hurmati Muhammadin Salalawhu Alaihi Wa Sallam."

“In the name of Allah, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful, O’ the First of all the firsts, O’ Last of all Lasts, There is none worthy of worship besides You, You are the creator of all the things first on this day, and You will create all the things last on this day, Grant me on this day the best of that which You granted on this day to Your prophets and Your chosen ones, from the infinite reward, (grant me) from that which You allocated and gave to them of honor, (I ask you this) by the sacredness of Sayedina Muhammed S.A.W.”

After the recitation of this Dua, whatever the reciter will ask for, Insha Allah, Allah will accept it and grant it to Him.

Kafaytahu, Waq Taraba Minka Fa Adnaytahu, Allahuma Inni AsAlukal Imaana Bika, Wa AsAlukal Fadla Min Nar Rizqi, Wa AsAluka Husnal
Aaqibati Fid Dunya Wal Aakhirati Ya Zal Jalaali Wal Ikraami."

“O’ Allah, Make me of those You answer when I call unto You, and Make me of those You guide when I brought Imaan in You, Make me of those You give too when I desire You, Make me of those You Protect when I placed my trust in You, Make me of those You bring closer when I approach You, O’ Allah, Indeed I ask You to increase my Imaan in You, I Ask You to give me surplus in my Sustenance, I ask You to grant me a good finale in this World and in the Hereafter, O’ You The Exalted, The Honorable!”

"Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem, Inni As-Aluka Bi Joodika Wa Karamika, Wa A’aoozu bika Minal Faza’I Fil Quboor, Bi Rahmatika Ya Arhamar
Raahimeen, InnAllaha Yumsikus Samaawati Wal Arada An Tazula, Wa La In Zaalata In Amsakahuma Min Ba’adihi, Innahu Kaana Haleeman
Ghafoora."

“In the name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Most Merciful, indeed I ask You by Your Generosity and Your Honor, and indeed I seek protection in You from the fear of the grave, by Your Mercy, O’ You Most Merciful of those who have mercy. Indeed it is Allah, that holds the heavens and the earths from falling, and if they had to fall, who else besides Him will be able to hold them after Him, Indeed He is Most Kind, Most Merciful.”
