Salaat of -Ja’far-e-Tayyar (brother of Imam Ali (as) is among the prayers that are greatly emphasized and it is famous among all sects. It was a gift of love bestowed by the Holy Prophet ( s.a.w.s.) to his cousin upon his return from the journey.

Imam Sadiq ( a.s.) has said: On the day of the conquest of Khyber when Ja’far returned from Abyssinia the Holy Prophet ( s.a.w.s.) asked: Don’t you want a reward? Don’t you want a gift?   Hazrat Ja’far replied: Why not, O Messenger of Allah? The Messenger of Allah ( s.a.w.s.) said: I am giving you something that if you perform it everyday it would better than all those things that are present in the world. And if you perform it once in two days the Almighty will forgive the sins of both these days and if you perform it every Friday or every month or every year the Almighty will forgive all the sins committed in between.

The best time to perform it is on Friday before noon. This prayer can be counted as the Nafila of the night or the Nafila of the day.

METHOD - four rakat Salat, divided into two parts 2 x 2 rakat. ( more rules) Recite each part exactly like the Fajr Namaz, with the following adjustments:

(i) First rakat After recitation of Sura Faatihah, recite Sura 99 Zilzaal
(ii) Second rakat After recitation of Sura Faatihah, recite Sura 100 Aadiyaat
(iii) Third Rakat After recitation of Sura Faatihah, recite Sura 110 Nasr
(iv) Fourth Rakat after recitation of Sura Faatihah, recite Sura Ikhlaas.

(Use www.tanzil.net to recite ,if you do not remember these surahs of each rakat, then recite sura Ikhlaas in all 4 rakats). Surahs on this page

In each rakat recite 'Tasbeehaatul Arbaa'  75 times (see below) ie cumulative 300 times in four rakats. :-

Tasbeehatul Arbaa is recited as under :-

Glory be to Allah, Praise be to Allah, there is no god but Allah, and Allah is Great.

Supplication After Salaat of Ja’far-e-Tayyaar (a.s.)from Sahifa Radhvia

It is incumbent upon you to remain attached with the Salaat of Ja’far-e-Tayyaar (a.s.) because it bears many benefits and merits. Whenever you intend to perform this prayer say Takbeer and start the prayer (perform the prayer as explained earlier). After finishing the salaat recite following supplication:

اO Allah! I beseech You from everything which Muhammad and his progeny have asked, and I take refuge with You from everything Muhammad and his progeny have sought refuge. O Allah! Give me all best goodness, and keep away from me all what You have decreed from evil, or trial, and forgive me what You know about me, and that certainly You have recorded for me from my sins, and fulfill my needs in what You are pleased with and is in my interest, O Lord of graciousness and favour! And expand for me sustenance and life-term, and save me from my grievances appertained to my world and my hereafter, surely You have power over everything.[1]

Rules of Namaz-e-Ja’far-e-Tayyar

Namaz-e-Ja’far-e-Tayyar can also prayed on behalf of the departed ones and also only the Sawab of this Namaz can be gifted to them. Gifting the sawab to the departed ones increases the levels of their soul and also the one who has prayed is also rewarded. The level would be as high as the gift is higher. And in the same way would be the position of one who is gifting the sawab. The reward of Namaz-e-Ja’far-e-Tayyar in the Haram of the Infallible Imams ( a.s.) is more than that of a thousand Hajjs and Umrahs.

Ja`far al-±ayy¡r’s Prayer is as precious as gold, since it is the most magnificent recommended devotional rite. Altogether with its great merits the most important of which is that it erases major sins, this prayer has been reported through authenticated chain of authority. The best time of its performance is the first hours of daylight on Fridays

 

Al-Mufa¤¤al then added: Imam Ja`far al-¯¡diq (`a) then said to me, “If you have a significant request and you want it to be granted, you may offer this prayer, say this supplication, and implore Almighty Allah to respond to you. If you do, it will be granted, Allah willing.”

Salat Jafar Tayyar For Special needs /Hajaat

Imam ( a.s.) told me: O Mufaddal! When you have a need, you must recite Namaz-e-Ja’far-e-Tayyar and then recite this Dua and beseech the Almighty for your needs so that it is fulfilled. Friday is the best day for Namaz-e-Ja’far-e-Tayyar. One should perform Ghusl before the noon and if the problem is severe he should go in wilderness and pray Namaz-e-Ja’far-e-Tayyar.

Shaykh al-±£s¢ has narrated that Imam al-¯¡diq (`a) recommended the following prayer for having one’s requests granted:

Observe fasting on consecutive Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. At Thursday evening, give half bushel of food for ten poor people as alms. On Friday, wash yourself and go out to a wasteland and offer therein Ja`far al-±ayy¡r’s Prayer

 

Kneel down on the ground &  You may then say the following  prayer:

يَا مَنْ اظْهَرَ ٱلْجَمِيلَ

O He Who has shown only goodness

وَسَتَرَ ٱلْقَبِيحَ

(8) Salaat of Ja’far-e-Tayyaar (a.s.)

Imam Reza (a.s.) quotes on the authority of his honourable father, Imam Moosa Ibn Ja’far (a.s.) that a person asked Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq (a.s.) about salaat of Tasbeeh (Salaat of Ja’far-e-Tayyaar (a.s.)), he (a.s.) said:

“This salaat is a very big endowment and Divine Gift.

My honourable father has narrated on the authority of my honourable fore-father Imam Zainul Aabedin (a.s.) that he (a.s.) said:

When Ja’far ibn Abi Taalib (a.s.) returned from Abyssinia, the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.a.) met him in his restroom near Khaibar. When Ja’far (a.s.) saw him (s.a.w.a.), he rushed towards him happily. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) embraced him and was very much pleased on seeing him. He (s.a.w.a.) talked to him. Then he (s.a.w.a.) mounted on his horse and also made him mounted. When the horse started to walk, he (s.a.w.a.) looked at Ja’far (a.s.) and said:

“O brother Ja’far! Should not I select you to offer some present?”

When the people heard these dialogues, they thought that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) would give him some worldly gift because he had helped the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) in the battle of Khaiber and got a good booty.

Ja’far (a.s.) said: “May my parents be sacrificed upon you please do give me.”

Then the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) taught him the Salaat of Tasbih (which is known as ‘Salaat of Ja’far-e-Tayyaar’).”[1]

Imam Reza (a.s.) narrates:

“It is incumbent upon you to remain in touch with Namaz of Ja’far Tayyaar because it carries many virtues. It may be performed at any time during the day or night but not at the time of any obligatory salaat. It may be performed along with recommended salaat and without tasbeeh.

Start this salaat with one takbeer and recite Surah Aadeyaat (chapter 100) after Surah Hamd in the first unit. In the second unit recite Surah Zilzaal (chapter 99) after Surah Hamd. [2]

In the third unit recite Surah Nasr (chapter 110) and in the fourth unit recite Surah Ikhlaas. Surah Tawheed can be recited in all the four units also.

In each unit, recite سُبْحَانَ اللهِ وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلهِ وَ لَا اِلٰهَ اِلَّا اللهُ وَ اللهُ اَكْبَرُ after:

Reciting Surah Hamd and another Surah            15 times

In ruku                                                                  10 times

After ruku, while standing                                   10 times

In the first sajdah                                                 10 times

After first sajdah, while sitting                            10 times

In the second sajdah                                            10 times

After second sajdah, while sitting                       10 times

Then stand up and perform the second unit like the first unit. Then finish the salaat with Tashahud and Salaam. Perform another two unit like the previous ones.[3]

In this way Tasbeehat al-Arba’ are recited 75 times in each unit making a total of 300 times in four units.

Salaat of Ja’far-e-Tayyaar in the Shrine of Imam Reza (a.s.)

Salaat of Ja’far-e-Tayyaar bears great importance due to certain reasons:

1.    Great emphasis has been given in performing this prayer in the shrine of Imam Reza (a.s.).

2.    It has been observed that Imam of the era – Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) was seen performing Salaat of Ja’far-e-Tayyaar towards the head in the shrine of Imam Reza (a.s.).

3.    Imam Reza (a.s.) used to peform Salaat of Ja’far-e-Tayyaar.

Ahmad ibn Ali Ansari quotes on the authority of Raja’ ibn Abi Zahhaak that in the journey of Khorasan every night Imam Reza (a.s.) used to perform four unit Salaat of Ja’far-e-Tayyaar after eight units.[4]

4.    Imam Reza (a.s.) has recommended to perform Salaat of Ja’far-e-Tayyaar on the day of Dahwul Arz (25th Zilqad).

Allama Majlisi (a.r.) narrates that in the letter of Shaikh Husain ibn Abd al-Samad it is written that:

Shaikh Abu Tayyeb Husain ibn Ahmad Faqeeh narrates that whoever performs the pilgrimage of Imam Reza (a.s.) or any of the pious and purified Imams (a.s.), he should perform Salaat of Ja’far-e-Tayyaar in their holy shrine. The reward of each unit of this prayer is equal to performing one thousand Hajj, one thousand umrah, freeing one thousand slaves, performing one thousand ‘wuquf’[5] along with the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) in the way of Allah and for every step he will get the reward of one hundred Hajjs, one hundred Umrah, freeing one hundred slaves in the way of Allah and the reward of one hundred good deeds will be written for him and one hundred sins will be erased from the scroll of his deeds.[6]

Allamah Majlisi (r.a.) writes in ‘Zaad al-Maad’ that there are repeated traditions about this Namaz. Even the adversaries consider this namaz desirable except some of them. But most of them relate this namaz from Abbas, uncle of Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.), due to their hidden enmity with Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) and his near ones.

No other prayer, except the recommended prayers of day and night can emulate this Salaat due to its excessive rewards and accredited traditions.[7]

Allamah Majlisi (a.r.) has enumerated the commandments of this salaat in some chapters as given hereunder:

1)    It is well-known amongst the scholars that one can perform Salaat of Ja’far-e-Tayyaar in stead of recommended day and night salats. It would be counted at both places.[8] It may also be performed with the intention of elapsed recommended prayers, as there are many traditions in this regard.

2)    It has been narrated in some traditions and some scholars are also of the opinion that if somebody has emergency, this namaz may be performed without Tasbeehaat-e-Arba’ which may be recited (300 times) after the Salaat.

3)    It has been narrated in reliable traditions that If one has only sufficient time to recite only two unit with Tasbeehaat-e-Arba’ fully he should recite those two unit only and the remaining two unit can be recited whenever the person gets time. But it is better to perform all the units altogether if there is no genuine excuse.

4)    It has been narrated in a reliable tradition on the authority of Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) that if anyone forgets the Tasbeehaat of Salaat of Ja’far-e-Tayyaar, he may recite the same at whatever time he recollects.

5)    There are differences in the recitation of the recommended surahs and it is famous that in its first unit, after Surah Hamd, recite Surah Zilzal, in the second unit recite Surah Aadeyaat, in the third unit recite Surah Nasr and in the fourth unit recite Surah Ikhlaas.

(a) Ibn Baabwayh (r.a.) and his father says that in the first unit recite Surah Aadeyaat and in the second unit recite Surah Zilzaal.

(b) According to one tradition, it is said that in the first unit Surah Zilzaal, in the second unit Surah Nasr, in the third unit Surah Qadr and in the fourth unit Surah Tawheed should be recited.

(c) It is said in a reliable tradition that Surah Kaaferoon and Surah Tawheed both should be recited in each unit.

(d) According to one tradition any Surah may be recited. Ibn Baabwayh (r.a.) said: Surah Tawheed may be recited in all the units and apparently this is better but the first and third (i.e. (a) and (c)) method is best.

6)    This is famous that after the first prostration of first and third unit Tasbeehaat-e-Arba’ should be recited in sitting position and some say that after getting up for the second unit recite Tasbeehaat-e-Arba’ before recitation of surahs but it is better to act what is famous.

7)    Some say that all the four units to be performed with one salaam but two salaams are preferred.

8)    Scholars are of the opinion that Tasbeehaat-e-Arba’ to be recited before ruku and before the recitation of Surahs. Ibn Baabwayh (r.a.) quotes that it is optional to recite the Tasbeehaat before and after reciting surahs but it is better to act according to renowned manner.[9]
