24th  Zilhajj -Eid E Mubahila

Also 25th Zilhajj | Last day of Zilhajj

The event of Mubahilah took place on 24th Zilhajj in the 9th year of Hijra. A deputation of 14 Christian (najran) scholars came to discuss the truth of Islam with the Holy Prophet (sa)  Arguments were put forward by both sides.  Several days went by The Christians did not listen to reason. Then Allah revealed the following verses: 
     "Verily, the likeness of E’essa/Jesus with Allah is as the likeness of Adam. He created him of dust, then He said unto him:”Be, and he was”   (This is ) the truth from your Lord (O Muhammad), so be not of those who doubt. And whoso disputes with you  concerning him after the knowledge which has come unto you, say (unto them): “Come We will summon our sons and you your sons, and our women and you your women, and our ‘selfs’ and your ‘selfs’, and then will pray humbly (to the Lord) and invoke the curse of Allah upon those who lie. (The Holy Quran, 3:58,59 and 60 ) Read more here ->  History of Mubahila

On the twenty-forth of Dhu’l-°ijjah, the Holy Prophet (¥) invited the Christians of Najr¡n that each party would invoke Almighty Allah’s curse upon the liars among them so that the truthful party would be distinguished and the lying party would be cursed. The Holy Prophet (¥) put on a cloak and embraced Imam `Al¢, Lady F¡§imah al-Zahr¡', Imam al-°asan, and Imam al-°usayn—peace be upon them—and prayed Almighty Allah, saying, “O Allah, verily, each Prophet had a family members whom were the nearest to him. O Allah, these are my Household; so, (please do) remove uncleanness from them and purify them with thorough purification.” Immediately after that, Archangel Gabriel descended carrying the Verse of Purification.([1]) Then, the Holy Prophet (¥) accompanied his family members as his partners in the process of invoking Almighty Allah’s curse upon the lying party. As soon as the Christians’ eyes fell on the Holy Prophet’s household, they realized that those individuals were the most truthful and that chastisement would be the share of any one who would oppose them. They therefore did not dare to participate in that invocation of curse and, instead, they agreed to pay a tribute (jizyah) to the Holy Prophet (¥).

On the twenty-fourth of Dhu’l-°ijjah too, Imam `Al¢ Am¢r al-Mu'min¢n (`a), while he was offering a prayer and, more precisely, while he was in the genuflection of that prayer, gave his ring as alms to a poor who was begging in the mosque. Therefore, Almighty Allah revealed the following holy verses (5:55-56):

 إِنَّمَا وَلِيُّكُمُ اللَّـهُ وَرَسُولُهُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا الَّذِينَ يُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ وَهُمْ رَاكِعُونَ

Only Allah is your wali (master) and His Messenger and those who believe, those who keep up prayers and pay the poor-rate while they bow.

 وَمَن يَتَوَلَّ اللَّـهَ وَرَسُولَهُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا فَإِنَّ حِزْبَ اللَّـهِ هُمُ الْغَالِبُونَ

And whoever takes Allah and His messenger and those who believe for a guardian, then surely the party of Allah are they that shall be triumphant.

 

The recommended acts on this day are as follows:

First: It is recommended to bathe oneself /perform ghusl on this day.

Second: It is recommended to observe fasting.

Third: It is recommended to offer a two unit prayer that should be similar to the two unit prayer that is offered on the `«d al-Ghad¢r Day in form, time, and even reward. The only difference is that ªyah al-Kurs¢ should be recited with the two verses following it; that is, it should be recited upto:ul¡'ika a¥¦¡bu alnn¡ri hum f¢h¡ kh¡lid£na This means that it is recited along with the two verses following it. 


Fourth: It is recommended to say Du`¡' al-Mub¡halah, which is similar to the famous supplicatory prayer known as Du`¡' al-Bah¡' that is said at the last hours of Rama¤¡n nights (i.e. sa¦ar). Nevertheless, a little difference in this supplication is noticed between the version of Shaykh al-±£s¢ and the version of Sayyid Ibn ±¡w£s. I will thus choose the earlier one that is recorded in Shaykh al-±£s¢’s book of Mi¥b¡¦ al-Mutahajjid and reported from Imam Ja`far al-¯¡diq (`a):

Fifth: It is recommended to say the supplicatory prayer that Shaykh al-±£s¢ and Sayyid Ibn ±¡w£s reported to be said after offering a two unit prayer and imploring for forgiveness seventy times. This supplicatory prayer begins with the following:

All praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. All praise be to Allah, the Maker of the skies and the earth…

al¦amdu lill¡hi rabb al`¡lam¢na al¦amdu lill¡hi f¡§iri alssam¡w¡ti wal-ar¤i…

اَلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلْعَالَمِينَ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ فَاطِرِ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ وَٱلرْضِ…

In order to imitate the Commander of the Believers, Imam `Al¢ (`a), each believing man and woman is required to give alms on this day.

 It is also advisable to visit the holy tomb of Imam `Al¢ (`a) and it is proper to say al-Ziy¡rah al-J¡mi`ah (the Comprehensive Ziy¡rah), which will be cited in this book in the chapter of the comprehensive forms of Ziy¡rah.

The Twenty-Fifth of Dhu’l-°ijjah

On this blessed day, S£rah al-Dahr (or al-Ins¡n No. 76) was revealed praising the Ahl al-Bayt (`a) for they had observed fasting for three days and given their food to a poor, an orphan, and a captive for three days respectively. All over these three days, they used to break their fasting with water only. In view of that, the adherents (Sh¢`ah) of the Ahl al-Bayt (`a) are required to imitate their masters on these three days and give alms to the poor and the orphans, especially at the twenty-fifth night of Dhu’l-°ijjah, to do their best in offering food to the needy, and to observe fasting on these days. In the view of some scholars, the twenty-fifth of Dhu’l-°ijjah is the Day of Mub¡halah; therefore, it is proper to say al-Ziy¡rah al-J¡mi`ah and Du`¡' al-Mub¡halah, which has been previously cited.

The Last Day of Dhu’l-°ijjah  image

The last day of Dhu’l-°ijjah is the last day in the Arabic calendar. According to some narrations mentioned by Sayyid Ibn ±¡w£s in his book of Iqb¡l al-A`m¡l, it is recommended to offer a two unit prayer on this day reciting S£rah al-F¡ti¦ah once, and repeating each of S£rah al-Taw¦¢d and ªyah al-Kurs¢ ten times. After accomplishment, it is recommended to say the following supplicatory prayer:

اَللَّهُمَّ مَا عَمِلْتُ فِي هٰذِهِ ٱلسَّنَةِ

all¡humma m¡ `amiltu f¢ h¡dhih¢ alssanati

O Allah, as for any act that I have done in this year

مِنْ عَمَلٍ نَهَيْتَنِي عَنْهُ وَلَمْ تَرْضَهُ

min `amalin nahaytan¢ `anhu wa lam tar¤ah£

but You have warned me against doing it and You have been displeased with it,

وَنَسِيتُهُ وَلَمْ تَنْسَهُ

wa nas¢tuh£ wa lam tansah£

I have forgotten it but You have not,

وَدَعَوْتَنِي إِلَىٰ ٱلتَّوْبَةِ بَعْدَ ٱجْتِرَائِي عَلَيْكَ

wa da`awtan¢ il¡ alttawbati ba`da ijtir¡'¢ `alayka

and You have called to  repent after I have dared to challenge You,

اَللَّهُمَّ فَإِنِّي سْتَغْفِرُكَ مِنْهُ فَٱغْفِرْ لِي

all¡humma fa'inn¢ astaghfiruka minhu faghfir l¢

O Allah, I am now praying You to forgive it to me; so, (please) forgive me.

وَمَا عَمِلْتُ مِنْ عَمَلٍ يُقَرِّبُنِي إِلَيْكَ

wa m¡ `amiltu min `amalin yuqarribun¢ ilayka

As for any act that draws me near to You,

فَٱقْبَلْهُ مِنِّي وَلاَ تَقْطَعْ رَجَائِي مِنْكَ يَا كَرِيمُ

faqbalhu minn¢ wa l¡ taq§a` raj¡'¢ minka y¡ kar¢mu

(please) accept it from me and never cut off my hope in You, O All-generous!

If these statements are said, Satan will say, “Woe to me! All the efforts that I have exerted throughout this year for misleading this person have been failed by the utterance of these statements.” Besides, one who says these words will be testified by the year that he sealed it in a good way.
