Sayyid ibn Tawus and al-Kaf'aimy. This supplication brings about
great merit. The
Holy Prophet (saws) recommended this dua to
Imam Ali (as) and said that Jibreel
(as) came to me and said," Whoever in the holy month of Ramadhan
before iftaar recites this dua, Allah (swt) answers his prayer,
accepts his prayer and fasting, grants his ten requirements,
forgives his sins, removes his grief's, makes his heart at ease,
grants his wishes, makes his deeds to ascend upward with the deeds
of prophets and righteous saints and on the Day of Judgement brings
him to HIS presence with his face illuminated like a bright moon."
