In his book entitled Misbah al-Mutahajjid, Shaykh al-Tusi mentions that al-Rayyan ibn al-Salt is reported as saying that Imam Muhammad al-Jawad(a.s.) observed fasting on the fifteenth and the twenty-seventh of Rajab while he was in Baghdad. Following him, all of his followers observed fasting. He then ordered us to offer the prayer that consists of twelve units at each of which Surah al-Faatehah and another Surah should be recited. At the accomplishment of this prayer, it is recommended to recite Surahs al-Faatehah, al-Tawheed, al-Falaq, and al-Nas each for times. Then it is recommended to say the following litany four times:

لَآ اِلٰہَ اِلَّااللّٰهُ وَاللّٰهُ اَکْبَرُ سُبْحَانَ اللّٰهِ وَالْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّۃَ اِلَّا بِاللّٰهِ الْعَلِیِّ الْعَظِیْمِ ۔

اَللّٰهُ اللّٰهُ رَبِّیْ لَآ اُشْرِکُ بِہٖ شَیْئًا۔

Then, it is recommended to say the following four times, too:

لَا ٓاُشْرِکْ بِرَبِّیْ اَحَدًا

Translation:

اَلْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ الَّذِیْ لَمْ یَتَّخِذْ وَلَدًا وَلَمْ یَکُنْ لَہٗ شَرِیْکٌ فِی المُلْکِ وَلَمْ یَکُنْ لَہٗ وَلِیٌّ مِنَ الذُّلِّ وَکَبِّرْہُ تَکْبِیْرًا یَاعُدَّتِیْ فِیْ مُدَّتِیْ یَاصَاحِبِی فِیْ شِدَّتِیْ یَاوَلِیِّ فِیْ نِعْمِتِیْ یَاغِیَاثِیْ فِیْ رَغْبَتِیْ یَانَجَاحِیْ فِیْ حَاجَتِیْ یَاحَافِظِیْ فِیْ غَیْبَتِیْ یَاکَافِیَّ فِیْ وَحْدَتِیْ یَآاُنْسِیْ فِیْ وَحْشَتِیْ اَنْتَ السَّاتِرُ عَوْرَتِیْ فَلَکَ الْحَمْدُ وَاَنْتَ الْمُقِیْلُ عَثْرَتِیْ فَلَکَ الْحَمْدُ وَاَنْتَ الْمُنْعِشُ صَرْعَتِیْ فَلَکَ الْحَمْدُ صَلِّ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَاٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَاستُرُ عَوْرَتِیْ وَاٰمِنْ رَوْعَتِیْ وَاَقِلْنِیْ عَثْرَتِیْ وَاصْفَحْ عَنْ جُرْمِیْ وَتَجَاوَزْ عَنْ سَیِّئَاتِیْ فِیْ اَصْحَابِ الْجَنَّۃِ وَعْدَ الصِّدقِ الَّذِیْ کَانُوْا یُوعَدُوْنَ۔

O my Supporter throughout my lifetime! O my Companion in hardships! O the provider of me with all graces that I experience! O my Succor in my desires! O the source of success of my needs! O my guardian while I am absent! O He Who is sufficient for me when I am alone! O my entertainment in my loneliness! You alone conceal my faults! So, all praise be to You. You alone overlook my slips. So, all praise be to You. You alone revive my deterioration. So, all praise be to You. (Please do) send blessings upon Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad and conceal my defects, and secure my apprehensions, and oversee my slips, and pardon my offenses, and overlook my evildoings and include me with the People of Paradise; the promise of truth which they were promised.

Translation:

O He Who has ordered us to forgive and overlook and has taken upon Himself to forgive and overlook! O He Who did forgive and overlook: (please do) forgive me and overlook (my evildoings) O the All-generous. O Allah: surely, all requests have been rejected, and all means and ways have been inaccessible, and all hopes have been eradicated, and all expectations have been cut off from everybody save You alone, there is no partner with You. O Allah: I find the ways to requesting from You wide open, and springs of hoping for You quenching, and doors of supplication unlocked for him who implores You, and Your aid available for those who seek it. I also know that You are in the position of response for him who beseeches You, and in the position of relief for him who resorts to You, and that hastening to Your magnanimity and the reliance upon Your promise compensate from the stinginess of the misery ones and suffice from that which is grasped by the mean ones. And [I know for sure] that You never screen Yourself against Your beings but it is their evildoings that prevent them from journeying toward You. I have also known for sure that the best provisions of his who intends to travel to You is a true willpower by which He chooses You among others. Hence, my heart has called at You with full willpower; and I pray You in the name of all supplications said by a hopeful and thus You have achieved his hope, or said by a seeker of aid and thus You have admitted his request, or said by an aggrieved, depressed one and thus You have relieved him, or said by a guilty sinner and thus You have forgiven him, or said by a healthy one and thus You have perfected Your favors on him, or said by a poor one and thus You have conferred upon him with Your wealth, and that these supplications occupy a considerable position with You and enjoy a standing with You— I pray You to send blessings upon Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad and to settle all my needs for this world and the Next World. This is Rajab, the honored and dignified month, which You have honored us through it, being the first of the Sacred Months, and You have selected us for this honor among the other nations. O the Lord of Magnanimity and Generosity. I thus beseech You by Your Name, the grandest, the grandest, the grandest, majestic that You have created so that it has settled under Your Shadow and it thus shall never transfer to anyone other than You— I beseech You to send blessings upon Muhammad and his Household, the immaculate, and to include us, during this month, with those who practice acts of obedience to You and those who hope for Your admission. O Allah: (please do) lead us to the Right Path, and choose for us the best resting-place with You, under a dense shade and abundant possession. Surely, You are Sufficient for us! Most Excellent are You, and in You do we trust! Peace be upon His servants, the chosen, and His blessings be upon them all. O Allah: (please do) bless us on this day that You have honored, and covered with Your nobility, and implanted in the great and highest Dwelling. (Please do) send blessings upon him whom You sent (as Your Messenger) to Your servants and whom You accommodated in the Noble Place. O Allah: send upon him blessing that is never-ending being in the form of thanks to You and reward to us. And make easy for us all our affairs; and make our end result up to the last of our lives pleasant after You accept our little deed and achieve for us all our hopes out of Your mercy. Verily, You have power over all things. May Allah bless and exalt Muhammad and his Household.
