Prayer of Imam Mahdi (ajtf) for Thursday Night

PRAYER OF IMAM MAHDI ON NIGHT OF FRIDAY (SHAB E JUMUAH)

.

Quoting the book of Kunuz al-Najah by Shaykh al-Yabrisi, the author of al-Najm al-Thaqib mentioned the following statement to have come from the Holy Region (i.e. Imam al-Mahdi): “Whoever has a request to be urgently granted by Almighty Allah, may bathe himself after midnight at a Friday night, directs towards his place of prayer, and offers a two unit prayer. In the first unit, he may recite Surah al-Faatehah, but when he reaches this holy verse, he should repeat it one hundred times:

.
اِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَ اِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِيْنُ۔

.
He may then continue reciting this Surah. After that, he may recite Surah al-Tawheed one time only. In the genuflection (ruku’) of each unit, he may repeat the genuflection (ruku’) doxology (zikr) seven times:

.
سُبْحَانَ رَبِّىَ الْعَظِيْمِ وَ بِحَمْدِهِ۔

.
In the two prostrations of each unit, he may repeat the prostration doxology (zikr) seven times:

.
سُبْحَانَ رَبِّىَ الْاَعْلٰى وَ بِحَمْدِهِ۔

.
Upon accomplishment of the prayer, he may beseech Almighty Allah using this supplicatory prayer. If he does, Almighty Allah will most certainly grant him his request unless it results in rupture of relations with one’s relatives:

.
اَللّٰهُمَّ اِنْ اَطَعْتُكَ فَالْمَحْمِدَةُ لَكَ وَ اِنْ عَصَيْتُكَ فَالْحُجَّةُ لَكَ مِنْكَ الرَّوْحُ وَ مِنْكَ الْفَرَجُ سُبْحَانَ مَنْ اَنْعَمَ وَ شَكَرَ سُبْحَانَ مَنْ قَدَّرَ وَ غَفَرَ اَللّٰهُمَّ اِنْ كُنْتُ عَصَيْتُكَ فَاِنِّىْ قَدْ اَطَعْتُكَ فِىْ اَحَبِّ الْاَشْيَاۤءِ اِلَيْكَ وَ هُوَ الْاِ يْمَانُ بِكَ لَمْ اَتَّخِذْ لَكَ وَلَدًا وَّ لَمْ اَدْعُ لَكَ شَرِيْكًا مَّنًّا مِّنْكَ بِهِ عَلَىَّ لَا مَنًّا مِّنِّىْ بِهِ عَلَيْكَ وَ قَدْ عَصَيْتُكَ يَاۤ اِلٰهِىْ عَلٰى غَيْرِ وَجْهِ الْمُكَابَرَةِ وَ لَا الْخُرُوْجِ عَنْ عُبُوْدِيَّتِكَ وَلَا الْجُحُوْدِ لِرُبُوْبِيَّتِكَ وَلٰكِنْ اَطَعْتُ هَوَاىَ وَ اَزَلَّنِىْ الشَّيْطَانُ فَلَكَ الْحُجَّةُ عَلَىَّ وَ الْبَيَانُ فَاِنْ تُعَذِّبْنِىْ فَبِذُنُوْبِىْ غَيْرُ ظَالِمٍ لِىْ وَ اِنْ تَغْفِرْلِىْ وَ تَرْحَمْنِىْ فَاِنَّكَ جَوَادٌ كَرِيْمٌ۔

.
You may then repeat this word as much as one breathe takes:

,
يَا كَرِيْمُ،يَا كَرِيْمُ۔

.
You may then continue, saying:

.
يَا اٰمِنًا مِّنْ كُلِّ شَيْى ءٍ وَ كُلُّ شَيْى ءٍ مِنْكَ خَاۤئِفٌ حَذِرٌ اَسْئَلُكَ بِاَمْنِكَ مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْى ءٍ وَ خَوْفِ كُلِّ شَيْى ءٍ مِنْكَ اَنْ تُصَلِّىَ عَلٰى مُحَمَّدٍ وَّ اٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَّ اَنْ تُعْطِيَنِىْ اَمَانًا لِنَفْسِىْ وَ اَهْلِىْ وَ مَالِيْ وَ وَلَدِىْ وَ سَاۤئِرِ مَا اَنْعَمْتَ بِهِ عَلَىَّ حَتّٰى لَااَخَافَ وَ لَا اَحْذَرَ مِنْ شَيْى ءٍ اَبَدًا اِنَّكَ عَلٰى كُلِّ شَيْى ءٍ قَدِيْرٌ وَ حَسْبُنَا اللّٰهُ وَ نِعْمَ الْوَكِيْلُ يَا كَافِىَ اِبْرَاهِيْمَ نُمْرُوْدَ وَ يَا كَافِىَ مُوْسٰى فِرْعَوْنَ اَسْئَلُكَ اَنْ تُصَلِّىَ عَلٰى مُحَمَّدٍ وَّ اٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَّ اَنْ تَكْفِيَنِىْ شَرَّ فَلَانُ بْنُ فُلَانٍ۔

.
You may now mention the one whom you anticipate to harm you by name and the father’s name (i.e. so-and-so the son of so-and-so) and beseech Almighty Allah to repel his harm and save from his evils. Most certainly, Almighty Allah will do, if He wills.

.

Then, you may prostrate yourself, submit your request, and beseech Almighty Allah earnestly and purely. Verily, if any believing man or woman offers this prayer and says this supplicatory prayer, the doors to the heavens will be opened before him/her so that his/her requests will be granted and his/her prayer will be immediately responded, no matter what his/her prayer may be. This is one of the favors Almighty Allah has bestowed upon people and upon us.”

The venerable son of Shaykh al-Yabrisi; namely, Radi al-Din Hasan ibn al-Fadl, has reported this prayer too in the book of Makarim al-Akhlaq with little difference in the supplicatory prayer. In the prefatory statement, he has added the word qad (surely) after kuntu (have been), the word ahadan (anyone) after the word akhafa (fear), and the word as’aluka (I beseech You) after the word fir’awna (Pharaoh). However, the other words of the supplicatory prayer are the same.
