The 30th of Ramadan (Ramaḍān)


In most cases, the recitation of the Holy Qur’an is accomplished on the thirtieth of Ramadan; therefore, it is highly advisable to read the supplicatory prayer No. 42 of al-Sahifah al-Kamilah al-Sajjadiyyah. It is also optional to say the following brief supplicatory prayer that is reported by Shaykh al-Tusi from Imam AliAmeer al-Momineen(a.s.):

اللّٰهُمَّ اشْرَحْ بِالْقُرْآنِ صَدْرِي وَ اسْتَعْمِلْ بِالْقُرْآنِ بَدَنِي وَ نَوِّرْ بِالْقُرْآنِ بَصَرِي وَ اَطْلِقْ بِالْقُرْآنِ لِسَانِي وَ اَعِنِّي عَلَيْهِ مَا اَبْقَيْتَنِي فَاِنَّهُ لا حَوْلَ وَ لا قُوَّةَ اِلا بِكَ.




O Allah: (please) expand my breast through the Qur'an And use my body for the Qur'an And enlighten my sight by the Qur'an And make my tongue eloquent by the Qur'an And help me carry out its duty as long as You keep me alive, For there is neither power nor might save with You.

It is recommended, too, to say the following supplicatory prayer that is reported from Imam AliAmeer al-Momineen (a.s.):

اللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّي اَسْاَلُكَ اِخْبَاتَ الْمُخْبِتِينَ وَ اِخْلاصَ الْمُوقِنِينَ وَ مُرَافَقَةَ الْاَبْرَارِ وَ اسْتِحْقَاقَ حَقَائِقِ الْاِيمَانِ وَ الْغَنِيمَةَ مِنْ كُلِّ بِرٍّ وَ السَّلامَةَ مِنْ كُلِّ اِثْمٍ وَ وُجُوبَ رَحْمَتِكَ وَ عَزَائِمَ مَغْفِرَتِكَ وَ الْفَوْزَ بِالْجَنَّةِ وَ النَّجَاةَ مِنَ النَّارِ


O Allah: I do beseech You for the humbleness of those who humble themselves before You; and for the sincerity of those possessing certainty; and for the companionship of the pious ones; and for the worthiness of the truths of faith; and for gaining a share of all pious deeds; and for safety from all sins; and for the merit of Your mercy; and for the qualifications of winning Your forgiveness; and for winning Paradise; and for salvation from Hellfire.
