Dua after Asr Prayer

;

It was stated in “Falaahi Ssa’il” among the important supplication to be observed after (Asr) afternoon prayer by imitating our master Musa ibn Ja’afar Al-Kazim (peace be upon him) in his dedicated supplication to our master Al-Mahdi (peace and blessing of Allah be on his grand father Muhammad and same to him) as it was narrated by Yahya bn Al-Fadl Naufali, he said: I entered to Abu Al-Hasan, Musa bn Ja’afar after (Asr) afternoon prayer in Baghdad, thus I met him raising his hand to the Heaven and I heard him reciting the following:

1 Mikyaal ul Makarim: 11/2254

 

You are Allah and there is no deity but You, the first and the last, the manifest and the hidden, and You are Allah and there is no deity but You, to You belongs the increasing of things and their depletion, and You are Allah and there is no deity but You, You created creation with no assistance from other than Yourself, nor are You in need of anyone, and You are Allah and there is no deity but You, from you comes the will and from you came the initial creation.

You are Allah and there is no deity but You, (You are) prior to that which came before and creator of that which came before, You are Allah and there is no deity but You, You will remain after that which will follow and You are the Creator of that which will follow, You are Allah and there is no deity but You, You erase and establish what You please and with You is the Mother of the Book, You are Allah and there is no deity but You, the aspiration of all things and their inheritor, You are Allah and there is no deity but You, no minute thing is difficult for You nor is something too grand, You are Allah and there is no deity but You, the languages cannot hide something from You, nor are the voices indistinguishable for You.

Every day You are bringing about a matter, and one matter does not distract you from another matter, Knower of the unseen and the hidden, Supreme authority of the faith, Director of all affairs, Resurrector of those in the graves, Reviver of the decomposed bones, I beseech You through Your hidden and reserved name, the Living  the Self-subsisting, which does not disappoint a person who asks You through it, to send blessings upon Muhammad and his progeny, and to hasten the appearance of the one who will avenge You against your enemies, and to fulfil that which You promised him, O Lord of glory and honour.
