A'amal - Umme E Dawood

The best a'mal for middle of Rajab ( 15th) is Do'a-e-Umme Dawood.
It is best for fulfilment of desires and removal of oppressions and calamities. Imam Ja'far-e-Sadiq (A.S.) said"Do not teach this amal to each and everyone lest some should perform it for illegitimate purpose. It contains Great Name of Allah (Isme Azam) and every desire will be attained for which it is performed in spite of all hurdles, even if doors of heaven and earth are shut as it were, Allah will suffice even if all the mankind and genie are against the performer and every body will be subjugated. If performed, in any other month other than Rajab, in the middle of the month after observing fast on 13th, 14th and 15th it will carry the same benefit. It is also beneficial to perform this amal on any auspicious day like Friday or Arfa without observing fast.In the word of Shaykh al-Tusiy, in his book of ‘MiSbah al-Mutahajjid,’ one who intend to do this act is required to observe fasting on the thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth days of Rajab. At the midday of the fifteenth, one should bathe himself. After midday, one should offer the obligatory Zuhr and `ASr Prayers with the Nafila so excellently that one should do all the parts perfectly. It is advisable to be in a vacant place so as not to be engaged with anything and not to be addressed by anyone.
When the (obligatory) prayer is accomplished, one should face the kiblah and recite the following surah multiple times as stated in the table below:
Shorter method: If one does not know these chapters or is unable to recite these sooras, he should recite Tasbeehat-e-Arba'a 100 times; AI Hamd 100 times Sura Tawhid 100 times Ayatul Kursi 10 times. Salavat 100 times and Qul Hoval Laho Ahad (Ch. 112) 1000 times. Shaikh Mufid has also mentioned similar method. Syed Tawoos in Iqbal Aamal has also mentioned (if in safar/ travel) 100 times Sura Tawhid instead of all surahs
