Shaykh al-Tusi has reported the following words from Abu’l-Qasim ibn Ruh, the Private Representative of Imam al-Mahdi(a.s.): “In Rajab, you may visit any of the shrines (of the Holy Infallibles) that are possible for you to visit, and say the following supplicatory prayer therein:

اَلْحَمْدُ لِلّٰہِ الَّذِیْٓ اَشْھَدَنَا مَشْھَدَ اَوْلِیَآئِہٖ فِیْ رَجَبٍ وَاَوْجَبَ عَلَیْنَا مِنْ حَقِّھِمْ مَاقَدْ وَجَبَ وَصَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ الْمُنْتَجَبِ وَعَلٰٓی اَوْصِیَآئِہِ الْحُجُبِ اَللّٰھُمَّ فَکَمَآ اَشْھَدْتَنَا مَشْھَدَھُمْ فَانْجِزْلَنَا مَوْعِدَھُمْ وَاَوْرِدْنَا مَوْرِدَھُمْ غَیْرَ مُحَلَّئِیْنَ عَنْ وِرْدٍ فِیْ دَارِ الْمُقَامَۃِ وَالْخُلْدِ وَالسَّلَامُ عَلَیْکُمْ اِنِّیْ قَدْ قَصَدْتُکُمْ بِمَسْئَلَتِیْ وَحَاجَتِیْ وَھِیَ فَکَاکُ رَقَبَتِی مِنَ النَّارِ وَالْمَقَرُّ مَعَکُمْ فِیْ دَارِ الْقَرَارِ مَعَ شِیْعَتِکُمُ الْاَبْرَارِ وَالسَّلَامُ عَلَیْکُمُ بِمَا صَبَرْتُمْ فَنِعْمَ عُقْبَی الدَّارِ اَنَا سَآئِلُکُمْ وَاٰمِلُکُمْ فِیْمَآ اِلَیْکُمُ التَّفْوِیْضُ وَعَلَیْکُمُ التَّعْوِیْضُ فَبِکُمْ یُجْبَرُ الْمَھِیْضُ وَیُشْفَی الْمَرِیْضُ وَمَا تُزْدَادُ الْاَرْحَامُ وَمَا تَغِیْضُ اِنِّیْ بِسِّرِّکُمْ مُؤْمِنٌ وَلِقَوْلِکُمْ مُسَلِّمٌ وَعَلَی اللّٰہِ بِکُمْ مُقْسِمٌ فِیْ رَجْعِیْ بِحَوَآئِجِیْ وَقَضَآئِھَا وَاِمْضَآئِھَا وَاِنْجَاحِھَا وَاِبْرَاحِھَا وَبِشُؤُنِیْ لَدَیْکُمْ وَصَلاَحِھَا وَالسَّلَامُ عَلَیْکُمْ سَلَامَ مُوَدِّعٍ وَلَکُمْ حَوَآئِجَہٗ مُودِعٍ یَسْئَلُ اللّٰہَ اِلَیْکُمُ الْمَرْجِعَ وَسَعْیُہٗٓ اِلَیْکُمْ غَیْرَ مُنْقَطِعٍ وَاَنْ یَّرْجِعَنِیْ مِنْ حَضْرَتِکُمْ خَیْرَ مَرْجِعٍ اِلٰی جَنَابٍ مُمْرِعٍ وَخَفْضِ عَیْشٍ مُوَسَّعٍ وَدَعَۃٍ وَمَھَلٍ اِلٰی حِیْنِ الْاَجَلَ وَخَیْرِ مَصِیْرٍ وَمَحَلٍّ فِی النَّعِیْمِ الْاَزَلِ وَالْعَیْشِ الْمُقْتَبَلِ وَدَوَامِ الْاُکُلِ وَشُرْبِ الرَّحِیْقِ وَالسَّلْسَبِیْلِ وَعَلٍّ وَنَھَلٍ لّاَ سَاَمَ مِنْہُ وَلَا مَلَلَ وَرَحْمَۃُ اللّٰہِ وَبَرَکَاتُہٗ وَتَحِیَّاتُہٗ عَلَیْکُمْ حَتّٰی الْعَوْدِ اِلٰی حَضْرَتِکُمْ وَالْفَوْزِ فِیْ کَرَّتِکُمْ وَالْحَشْرِ فِیْ زُمْرَتِکُمْ وَرَحْمَۃُ اللّٰہِ وَبَرَکَاتُہٗ عَلَیْکُمْ وَصَلَوَاتُہٗ وَتَحِیَّاتُہٗ وَھُوَ حَسْبُنَا وَنِعْمَ الْوَکِیْلُ


All praise be to Allah Who has allowed us to visit the shrine of His Saints in Rajab and has made obligatory upon us their rights that are obligatory; and may Allah send blessings upon Muhammad, the divinely selected, and upon his Successors, the doors to Him. O Allah: as You have allowed us to visit their shrines, please do fulfill for us the promises that You have made with them; and include us with them and do not include us with those whom shall be prevented from drinking from the (Divine) Pool in the abode of eternity and perpetuity. And peace be upon you all. I have turned my face towards you and directed to you carrying my query and need with me, which is the release of my neck from Hellfire and the settlement with you in the Abode of Settlement, with your pious adherents (Shi`ah). And peace be upon you all for that you persevered in patience. Now how excellent is the final home! I hereby beg you and put my hope in you as regards the matters in which you have the right to act and recompense. Truly, through you only are the hopeless restored (to good condition) and through you only are the ailed healed and that which the wombs absorb and that which they grow. Verily, I have full faith in your Secret and I am fully submissive to your words and I thus ask you by Allah to settle, respond to, give success to, and set aright all my needs and all my affairs towards you. Peace be upon you from one who bids you farewell and puts all his needs with you praying Allah for another visit to you since his hope is never cut off from you. I also pray Him to make my departure successful to a productive place, a fruitful area, comfort, and luxurious up to the befalling of death; and also [I pray Him] for the best destiny and abode in the Eternal Bliss, the affluent living, the perpetual fruit, the drinking from the pure drink and the divine spring whose drink is refreshing and thirst-quenching that is never bored or fed up. Allah’s mercy, blessings and salutations be upon you incessantly until I return to your presence and win the honor of visiting you again and the honor of being resurrected with your group. Allah’s mercy, blessings, benedictions, and salutations be upon you, for Allah alone is Sufficient for us! Most Excellent is He in Whom we trust!
