اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا رَسُوْلَ اللّٰهِ السَّلَاَمُ عَلَيْكَ يَا نَبِيَّ اللّٰه السَّلَاَمُ عَلَيْكَ يَا مُحَمَّدَ بْنَ عَبْدِ اللّٰهِ السَّلَاَمُ عَلَيْكَ يَا خَاتَمَ النَّبِيِّيْن اَشْهَدُ اَنَّكَ قَدْ بَلَّغْتَ الرِّسَالَةَ وَ اَقَمْتَ الصَّلاَةَ وَ آتَيْتَ الزَّكَاةَ وَ اَمَرْتَ بِالْمَعْرُوْفِ وَ نَهَيْتَ عَنِ الْمُنْكَر وَ عَبَدْتَ اللّٰهَ مُخْلِصًا حَتّٰي اَتَاكَ الْيَقِيٌنُ فَصَلَوَاتُ اللّٰهِ عَلَيْكَ وَ رَحْمَتُهٗ وَ عَلٰي اَهْلِ بَيْتِكَ الطَّاهِرِيْن اَشْهَدُ اَنْ لَآ اِلٰهَ اِلَّا اللّٰهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَهٗ وَ اَشْهَدُ اَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَ رَسُوْلُهٗ وَ اَشْهَدُ اَنَّكَ رَسُوْلُ اللّٰهِ وَ اَنَّكَ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللّٰه وَ اَشْهَدُ أَنَّكَ قَدْ بَلَّغْتَ رِسَالَتِ رَبِّكَ وَ نَصَحْتَ لِأُمَّتِكَ وَ جَاهَدْتَ فِيْ سَبِيْلِ اللّٰه وَ عَبَدْتَ اللّٰهَ حَتّٰي اَتَاكَ الْيَقِيْنُ بِالْحِكْمَةِ وَ الْمَوْعِظَةِ الْحَسَنَةِ وَ اَدَّيْتَ الَّذِيْ عَلَيْكَ مِنَ الْحَقِّ وَ اَنَّكَ قَدْ رَؤُفْتَ بِالْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَ غَلُظْتَ عَلَي الْكَافِرِيْنَ فَبَلَّغَ اللّٰهُ بِكَ اَفْضَلَ شَرَفِ مَحَلِّ الْمُكَرَّمِيْنَ الْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ الَّذِي اسْتَنْقَذَنَا بِكَ مِنَ الشِّرْكِ وَ الضَّلَالَةِ اَللّٰهُمَّ فَاجْعَلْ صَلَوَاتِكَ وَ صَلَوَاتِ مَلَائِكَتِكَ الْمُقَرَّبِيْنَ وَ اَنْبِيَآئِكَ الْمُرْسَلِيْنَ وَ عِبَادِكَ الصَّالِحِيْنَ وَ اَهْلِ السَّمَوٰتِ وَ الْاَرَضِيْنَ وَ مَنْ سَبَّحَ لَكَ يَا رَبَّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ مِنَ الْاَوَّلِيْنَ وَ الْاٰخِرِيْن عَلٰي مُحَمَّدٍ عَبْدِكَ وَ رَسُوْلِكَ وَ نَبِيِّكَ وَ اَمِيْنِكَ وَ نَجِيِّكَ وَ حَبِيْبِكَ وَ صَفِيِّكَ وَ خَاصَّتِكَ وَ صَفْوَتِكَ وَ خِيَرَتِكَ مِنْ خَلْقِكَ اَللّٰهُمَّ اَعْطِهِ الدَّرَجَةَ الرَّفِيْعَةَ وَ اٰتِهِ الْوَسِيْلَةَ مِنَ الْجَنَّةِ وَ ابْعَثْهٗ مَقَامًا مَّحْمُوْدًا يَغْبِطُهٗ بِهِ الْأَوَّلُوْنَ وَ الْاٰخِرُوْنَ اللّٰهُمَّ اِنَّكَ قُلْتَ وَ لَوْ اَنَّهُمْ اِذْ ظَلَمُوْا اَنْفُسَهُمْ جَاءُوْكَ فَاسْتَغْفَرُوْا اللّٰهَ وَ اسْتَغْفَرَ لَهُمُ الرَّسُوْلُ لَوَجَدُوْا اللّٰهَ تَوَّابًا رَحِيْمًا وَ اِنِّيْ اَتَيْتُكَ مُسْتَغْفِرًا تَائِبًا مِنْ ذُنُوْبِيْ وَ اِنِّيْ اَتَوَجَّهُ بِكَ اِلَي اللّٰهِ رَبِّيْ وَ رَبِّكَ لِيَغْفِرَ لِيْ ذُنُوْبِيْ

 

Translation:

Peace be upon you, O Messenger of Allah. Peace be upon you, O Prophet of Allah. Peace be upon you, O Muhammad the son of the ‘Abd Allah’. Peace be upon you, O seal of the Prophets; I bear witness that you proclaimed the message and established the prayer and paid the zakat and enjoined the good and forbade evil and worshipped Allah with all sincerity until death overtook you; so may the blessings and mercy of Allah be upon you and on your pure family. I bear witness that there is no god except Allah. He is unique, there is no partner unto Him and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and Prophet. I bear witness that you are the Prophet of Allah and that you are Muhammad, the son of ‘Abd Allah’ and I bear witness that you proclaimed the messages of your Lord and that you advised your people and strived in the path of Allah and you served your Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching until death overtook you; and you fulfilled the duty imposed on you and that you were kind to the believers and severe on the disbelieves. Allah has made you attain the highest position of honor and nobility. Praise be to Allah who, through you, has saved us from polytheism and from going astray; O Allah send Your blessings and the blessings of Your close angels and Your Messengers and those of Your upright slaves and the people of the heavens and the earth and those who have glorified You, O Lord, from the beginning to the end, on Muhammad Your slave and Messenger and Your Prophet and Your trustworthy and saved one, Your beloved and Your chosen one; Your special, pure and most virtuous one from Your creatures. O Allah, grant him an elevated status and make him a means to heaven and raise him in a praiseworthy status, which the first and the last people will wish to attain. O Allah, You have said: “If they wrong themselves and come to you and seek forgiveness from Allah, and if the Prophet seeks forgiveness for them, they will find Allah forgiving and merciful”. I have come to you seeking forgiveness, repenting my sins and I seek your mediation with Allah, who is my Lord and Your Lord that He forgives my sins.

Translation:

Peace be on you, O trusted guardian, appointed by Allah, to administer His earth, and to convince the mankind to accept His plan. Peace be on you, O Ameer ul Moomineen;  I testify that you made utmost efforts, as it should be, in the cause of Allah, acted upon His Book, followed the way of life of His Prophet, (blessings of Allah be on him and on his children ) , to the last moment of your life, until Allah invited you to come unto Him, and used His discretion to take you away, and sealed your enemies' doom with the blame that the arguments had been made known to one and all through you. O Allah let me be happy and satisfied with that which Thou considers good for me, let me agree with that which Thou decides for me, let me passionately remember Thee, and invoke Thee, let me be in love with Thy pure and sincere friends, let me be well-liked and respected on the earth, and in the heavens, let me be unruffled and well composed in the midst of misfortunes, let me be gratefully thankful in prosperity, let me be mindful of much and more bounties, let- me ardently desire for the heart warming meeting with Thee; well-equipped with piety to gain my end on the Day of Requital, let me follow into the footsteps of Thy representatives, let me disassociate myself from the mannerism of Thy enemies, let me pass my time, in this world, by praising and glorifying Thee. O Allah, verily, the hearts of those who surrender to Thee, are full of passionate love, the path of those, who long for Thee, is the straight (true) road, the instructions given by those, who lean on Thee, are distinct and precise, the minds of those, who are aware of Thy reality, are filled with awe and reverence, the call of those, who invite unto Thee, is loud and clear, and the doors of approval are kept open for them;whoso submits his supplication to Thee receives a favourable answer, whoso turns repentant unto Thee gets acceptance (amnesty), whoso bursts into tears in fear of Thy punishment obtains mercy, whoso seeks redress from Thee finds the required assistance at his disposal, whoso asks for Thy help procures the aid as a gift. Thy promise made with Thy servants is fulfilled; whoso asks for pardon of his errors finds them reduced to nothing, whoso does everything  for Thysake discovers that each and every deed has been preserved. The means of livelihood available to the created beings come from Thee like a rainfall, and in addition many recurring favours and bounties reach them in regular successions, the sins of those, who ask for forgiveness, are overlooked, the wants and needs of all that which has been created by Thee are properly satisfied, those who put forward genuine demands get more than they ask for, one after the other, again and again; for the hungry wholesome food is arranged, for the thirsty clean water is available in abundance. O Allah give favourable answer to my prayer, acknowledge the praise I sing in worship, let there be peace and harmony between me and my friends, for the sake of Muhammad, Ali, Fatimah, Hasan and Husayn; verily, Thou art my Benefactor who provides with bounties, the aim of my desires, the ultimate destination of my hopes, in my future life, and during this short life. Thou art my God, my Master and my Lord ;welcome my friends, keep our enemies away from us;to save us from the evil mischief divert their attention, let the "true Word" come out in the open, supreme and dominant, refute and condemn the "foullie", rendered contemptible, verily, Thou art able to do all things.

Explanation / Details::

According to Shaykh al-Tusi and al-Kaf’ami, Imam al-Hasan al-’Askari(a.s.) departed life on this day. Yet, the most familiar report is that the Imam (a.s.) departed life on the eighth of Rabi’ al-Awwal. Probably, his ailment began on this day.
