اَللّٰھُمَّ رَبَّ شَھْرِ رَمْضانَ الَّذِی اَنْزَلْتَ فِیہِ الْقُرْآنَ وَافْتَرَضْتَ عَلَی عِبادِکَ فِیہِ الصِّیامَ صَلِّ عَلَی مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَارْزُقْنِی حَجَّ بَیْتِکَ الْحَرامِ فِی عَامِی ھذَا وَفِی کُلِّ عامٍ وَّاغْفِر لِی تِلْکَ الذُّنُوبَ الْعِظَامَ، فَاِ نَّہُ لاَ یَغْفِرُہا غَیْرُکَ یَا رَحْمنُ یَا عَلاَّمُ ۔

Translation:

O Allah, the Lord of the month of Ramadan  in which You have revealed the Qur'an  and made obligatory fasting in this month upon Your servants!  Please, send blessings to Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad  and provide me with the opportunity to go to Your ‘Sacred House’ for pilgrimage  in this year and in all years.  Forgive my overbearing sins,  for verily no one other than You can forgive them.  O All-beneficent! O All-knowing!

اللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّي بِكَ وَ مِنْكَ اَطْلُبُ حَاجَتِي وَ مَنْ طَلَبَ حَاجَةً اِلَي النَّاسِ فَاِنِّي لا اَطْلُبُ حَاجَتِي اِلا مِنْكَ وَحْدَكَ لا شَرِيكَ لَكَ وَ اَسْاَلُكَ بِفَضْلِكَ وَ رِضْوَانِكَ اَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَي مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ وَ اَنْ تَجْعَلَ لِي فِي عَامِي هٰذَا اِلَي بَيْتِكَ الْحَرَامِ سَبِيلا حِجَّةً مَبْرُورَةً مُتَقَبَّلَةً زَاكِيَةً خَالِصَةً لَكَ تَقَرُّ بِهَا عَيْنِي وَ تَرْفَعُ بِهَا دَرَجَتِي وَ تَرْزُقَنِي اَنْ اَغُضَّ بَصَرِي وَ اَنْ اَحْفَظَ فَرْجِي وَ اَنْ اَكُفَّ بِهَا عَنْ جَمِيعِ مَحَارِمِكَ حَتَّي لا يَكُونَ شَيْ‏ءٌ آثَرَ عِنْدِي مِنْ طَاعَتِكَ وَ خَشْيَتِكَ وَ الْعَمَلِ بِمَا اَحْبَبْتَ وَ التَّرْكِ لِمَا كَرِهْتَ وَ نَهَيْتَ عَنْهُ وَ اجْعَلْ ذَلِكَ فِي يُسْرٍ وَ يَسَارٍ وَ عَافِيَةٍ وَ مَا اَنْعَمْتَ بِهِ عَلَيَّ وَ اَسْاَلُكَ اَنْ تَجْعَلَ وَفَاتِي قَتْلا فِي سَبِيلِكَ تَحْتَ رَايَةِ نَبِيِّكَ مَعَ اَوْلِيَائِكَ وَ اَسْاَلُكَ اَنْ تَقْتُلَ بِي اَعْدَاءَكَ وَ اَعْدَاءَ رَسُولِكَ وَ اَسْاَلُكَ اَنْ تُكْرِمَنِي بِهَوَانِ مَنْ شِئْتَ مِنْ خَلْقِكَ وَ لا تُهِنِّي بِكَرَامَةِ اَحَدٍ مِنْ اَوْلِيَائِكَ اللّٰهُمَّ اجْعَلْ لِي مَعَ الرَّسُولِ سَبِيلا حَسْبِيَ اللّٰهُ مَا شَاءَ اللّٰهُ

Translation:

O Allah, from You and by You, I beseech for settling my need. If others beg people for settling their needs, I ask none except You for settling my need; from You alone, since You have no partner with You. I thus implore You in the name of Your favor and Your pleasure, to send blessings to Muhammad and his Household and to choose for me a way to Your Holy House this year: a pilgrimage that is admitted, accepted, pure, and sincerely intended for You by which You delight me and raise my rank with You. Confer upon me with the grace of making me cast my sight down (against what is illegal for me to look at), making me act chastely, and making me stop committing any deed that You have deemed unlawful so that nothing will be more preferred in my sight than obedience to You, fear of You, doing all that which You love, and avoiding all that which You have detested and warned against. (Please) make all that take place with easiness, lenience, and good health as well as the grace that You have bestowed upon me. I beseech You to cause me to die as martyr for Your sake, under the pennon of Your Prophet and in the line of Your intimate servants. I ask You to make me a means of killing Your enemies and the enemies of Your Messenger. I ask You to honor me through humiliating any one of Your created beings that You choose, and not to humiliate me through honoring any of Your intimate servants. O Allah, find me a way with the Messenger. Allah is Sufficient unto me! Only that which Allah wants shall take place.

كَثِيرٍ، مَعَ حاجَةٍ بِي إِلَيْهِ عَظِيمَةٍ وَغِناكَ عَنْهُ قَدِيمٌ وَھُوَ عِنْدِي كَثِيرٌ، وَھُوَ عَلَيْكَ سَھْلٌ يَسِيرٌ ۔ اَللّٰھُمَّ إِنَّ عَفْوَكَ عَنْ ذَ نْبِي، وَتَجاوُزَكَ عَنْ خَطِيئَتِي، وَصَفْحَكَ عَنْ ظُلْمِي وَسَِتْرَكَ عَلَي قَبِيحِ عَمَلِي، وَحِلْمَكَ عَنْ كَثِيرِجُرْمِي عِنْدَ مَا كانَ مِنْ خَطَإي وَعَمْدِي أَطْمَعَنِي فِي أَنْ أَسْأَلَكَ مَا لاَ أَسْتَوْجِبُهُ مِنْكَ الَّذِي رَزَقْتَنِي مِنْ رَحْمَتِكَ وَأَرَيْتَنِي مِنْ قُدْرَتِكَ وَعَرَّفْتَنِي مِنْ إِجابَتِكَ فَصِرْتُ أَدْعُوكَ آمِناً وَأَسْأَلُكَ مُسْتَأْنِساً لاَ خائِفاً وَلاَ وَجِلاً، مُدِلاًّ عَلَيْكَ فِيما قَصَدْتُ فِيهِ إِلَيْكَ، فَإِنْ أَبْطَأَ عَنِّي عَتَبْتُ بِجَھْلِي عَلَيْكَ وَلَعَلَّ الَّذِي أَبْطَأَ عَنِّي ھُوَ خَيْرٌ لِي لِعِلْمِكَ بِعاقِبَةِ الاَُْمُورِ، فَلَمْ أَرَ مَوْليً كَرِيماً أَصْبَرَ

Translation:

In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful

O Allah, I begin glorifying You with Your Praise You direct towards what is right through Your Grace I am convinced that You are the most Merciful in matters of forgiveness and mercy but most severe in matters of warning and retribution and the most mighty in matters of power and magnificence. O Allah You have allowed me to supplicate to You and ask from You Then hear my praise O One who hears all and answer my call O Merciful and decrease my mistakes O most Forgiving How often, O my God, You have relieved me of troubles how many griefs You have dispelled how many mistakes You have prevented how many blessings You have spread and how many series of afflictions You have separated All Praise is for Allah who has not taken a wife nor a son who has no partner in His Kingdom who has no friend to protect Him from humiliation so magnify Him with a great Magnificence All Praise is for Allah for all His praiseworthy acts for all His favors and blessings All Praise is for Allah who has no opposition in His Kingdom nor any challenge to His command All Praise is for Allah who has no partner in creation nor anyone like Him in His Greatness All Praise is for Allah, His commands operate over His creation His Praise is evident through His Generosity whose bestowal stretches out liberally His treasures never decrease (rather) the frequency of His Giving increases His Generosity and Kindness, Surely He is the Mighty, the Bestower. O Allah I ask You a little from much although I am in great need of it while You are eternally needless of it though it is a lot for me while it is easy and simple for You. O Allah, indeed Your forgiveness of my sins and Your overlooking my faults Your pardoning my oppression Your hiding my ugly deeds and Your forbearing my many wrongs done intentionally or unintentionally tempted me to ask from You what I did not deserve from You which You (still) gave me out of Your Mercy provided me by Your Power and made known to me from Your answers. So I became habituated to call You trustingly and ask You familiarly neither fearing nor scared but with confidence in You for what I intended Then if there was a delay (in Your answer) I would blame You, due to my ignorance and perhaps the delay was best for me for You know the outcome of all affairs. I have not seen a more generous master patient with a wretched slave than You are with me My Lord, You call me and I turn away from You You show affection to me and I show hatred towards You You display Your love for me and I do not respond as though I am above You But this does not prevent You from having mercy on me being good to me and favoring me, through Your Generosity and Nobility so please (continue to) have mercy on your ignorant slave and be kind to him through the excellence of Your Grace Surely You are the Bountiful, the Generous. All Praise is for Allah The Owner of the Kingdom who makes the ships sail, controls the wind, causes the dawn to break, is the authority on the Day of Judgement, the Lord of the worlds. All Praise is for Allah for His patience despite His knowledge. And all praise is for Allah for His forgiveness despite His power.

Description:

According to a Hadith, if one recites Surah al-Fath (No. 48) in a considerable prayer, he will be saved all over that year.

One of the recommended acts in the month of Ramadan is to offer the one thousand unit prayer. Master scholars have referred to this prayer in their books of jurisprudence and acts of worship. However, the way of offering this prayer has been mentioned by narrations in many forms. According to the report of Ibn Abi-Qurrah from Imam Muhammad al-Jawad(a.s.) that is also adopted by Shaykh al-Mufid in his book of al-Ghariyyah wa’l-Ashraf, this prayer, in its most familiar form, is offered as follows:

As for the first twenty nights of Ramadan, twenty units of this prayer should be offered at each night with an interval between each two units. To explain, eight units should be offered after the obligatory Maghrib Prayer and the others are performed after the obligatory Isha’ Prayer. The total is thus seven hundred units and the remainder is three hundred. These three hundred units should be offered at the Qadr Nights, which are the nineteenth, the twenty-first, and the twenty-third nights of the month. One hundred units should be offered at each of these three Qadr Nights. Thus, one thousand units are completed.
