Dua for the .1st hour of Day (Daily)


Shaykh al-Tusi, Sayyid Ibn Baqi, and Shaykh al-Kaf’ami have divided the day into twelve hours, dedicating each hour to one of the Twelve Imams (a.s.) and mentioning an advocacy-seeking supplication (i.e. tawassul) addressed to the Imam of that hour. Although these master scholars have not mentioned any tradition that is reported from the Holy Imams (a.s.) about this division, we, depending on the high regard of these scholars, can say that they would never say or do anything unless they had acquainted themselves with a narration indicating that saying or deed. However, in this brief book, I will mention only the supplicatory prayers that I have quoted from the book of Misbah al-Mutahajjid (by Shaykh al-Tusi). The first hour of the day, which is the space of time between dawn and sunrise, is dedicated to Imam AliAmeer al-Momineen(a.s.). The supplication at this hour is as follows:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَللّٰھُمَّ رَبَّ الْبَھَآئِ وَالْعَظَمَةِ وَالْكِبْرَيَآئِ وَالسُّلْطَانِ اَظْھَرْتَ الْقُدَرةَ كَيْف شِئْتَ وَمَنَنْتَ عَلٰي عِبَادِكَ بِمَغْفِرَتِكَ وَتَسَلَّطْتَ عَلَيْھِمْ بِجَبَرُوتِكَ وَعَلَّمْتَھُمْ شُكْرَ نِعْمَتِكَ اَللّٰھُمَّ فَبِحَقِّ عَلّيٍ الْمُرْتَضٰي لِلدِّيْنِ وَالْعَالِمِ بِالْحَكْمِ وَمَجَارِي التُّقَي اِمَامِ الْمُتَقِيْنَ صَلِّ عَلٰي مُحَمَّدٍ وَاٰ لِهِ فِي الْاَوَّلِيْنَ وَالْاَخِرِيْنَ وَاُقَدِّمُهُ بَيْنَ يَدَيْ حَوَآئِجِيْ اَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلٰي مُحَمَّدٍ وَاٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَاَنْ تَفْعَلَ بِيْ كَذَا وَكَذَا۔

O Allah, O Lord of brilliance, greatness, grandeur, and authority! You have demonstrated the power as You wished, bestowed upon Your servants with Your forgiveness, dominated over them with Your supremacy, and taught them how to thank Your graces. O Allah, in the name of `Ali, the well-pleased for the religion, the well-versed with the judgment and the streams of piety, and the leader of the pious, (please) send blessings upon Muhammad and his Household among the past and the coming generations, and I present him (i.e. `Ali) as my mediation for the settling of my needs, [I beseech You] to send blessings upon Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad and...
