Description: Reporting the same narration, the author of ‘Uddat al-DAIhas reported Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) as saying:
In the beginning of the last third of night, you may perform the ritual ablution (wudu’) and offer the prayer you usually offer at this time. In the second prostration of the first two units of the prayer, you may say the following (supplicatory prayer) while you are in a state of prostration:

Yunus added, “Before I returned to al-Kufah, Almighty Allah has removed from me all the traces of that disease.”
