Allama Kafmi has written this dua'a in his book Misbah, on the authority of Imam Ali ibna abi Talib who learned it from the Holy Prophet.The Holy Prophet said:"Allah will have mercy on him who keeps this dua'a as a tawid, and recites it a great deal. He will forgive his sins and the sins of parents and his children, bestow on him countless blessings, keep him safe from misfortunes, multiply his earnings, and cure his ailments."To improve and develop memory write the (Arabic) text of this dua'a on a clean piece of paper with saffron, wash it with pure water and drink it.Hang the written (Arabic) text of this dua'a (like a tawid) around the neck of children to keep them safe from wild and poisonous animals, and the evil of witchcraft and jinn.It is reported that at the time of mi-raj the Holy Prophet saw this dua'a written at the last post, qaaba qawsayn aw adnaa. Allah swt. informed him that whosoever recites this heavenly dua'a or keeps it written version on his person, will get countless blessings.

During the Me'raj, an Angel taught me the following supplication and instructed the prophet to recite it during the Morning and the Evening:
اللهم إن ظلمي أصبح مستجيراً بعفوك وذنبي مستجيرا بمغفرتك وذلي مستجيراً بوجهك الباقي الذي لا يفنى
"O' Allah! Verily I appeal for relief from my oppression through Your pardon, and I appeal for relief from my sins through Your forgiveness, and I appeal for relief from my own insignificance through your Everlasting Countenance which will never cease to exist. "
