Friday Rites
Signifance of Friday

After Friday Salaat-ul Fajr
It has been narrated that one who, after the the Dawn Prayer on Fridays, does devotional acts and says supplications and invocations until sunrise, will be raised seventy ranks to the Supreme Paradise.
In the first unit of the Dawn Prayer, it is recommended to recite Surah al-Jumu`ah (No. 62) and, in the second unit, Surah al-Tawhid (No. 112).
5. Before opening the mouth with any word, it is recommended to say the following prayer after the Dawn (Fajr) Prayer so that all sins committed throughout the week will be forgiven:

اَللَّهُمَّ مَا قُلْتُ فِي جُمُعَتِي هٰذِهِ مِنْ قَوْلٍ
allahumma ma qultu fi jumu`ati hadhihi min qawlin
O Allah, whatever saying I have uttered this week,

أَوْ حَلَفْتُ فِيهَا مِنْ حَلْفٍ
aw halaftu fiha min halfin
whatever oath I have taken during it,

أَوْ نَذَرْتُ فِيهَا مِنْ نَذْرٍ
aw nadhartu fiha min nadhrin
and whatever vow I have made during it,

فَمَشِيَّتُكَ بَيْنَ يَدَيْ ذٰلِكَ كُلِّهِ
famashiyyatuka bayna yaday dhalika kullihi
verily, it is Your will that is before all that.

فَمَا شِئْتَ مِنْهُ أَنْ يَكُونَ كَانَ
fama shi'ta minhu an yakuna kana
Hence, only that which You will to have effect will come to pass

وَمَا لَمْ تَشَأْ مِنْهُ لَمْ يَكُنْ
wa ma lam tasha' minhu lam yakun
and whatever You do not will to have effect will never come to pass.

اَللَّهُمَّ ٱغْفِرْ لِي وَتَجَاوَزْ عَنِّي
allahumma ighfir li wa tajawaz `anni
O Allah, (please) forgive me and overlook my offenses.

اَللَّهُمَّ مَنْ صَلَّيْتَ عَلَيْهِ فَصَلاَتِي عَلَيْهِ
allahumma man sallayta `alayhi fasalati `alayhi
O Allah, whosoever You bless, then I invoke Your blessings upon him

وَمَنْ لَعَنْتَ فَلَعْنَتِي عَلَيْهِ
wa man la`anta fala`nati `alayhi
and whosoever You curse, then I invoke Your curse upon him.

This act should be done once a month at least.
6.Shaykh al-Tusi has recorded that it is highly recommended to say the following prayer after the Dawn Prayer on Fridays:
اَللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي تَعَمَّدْتُ إِلَيْكَ بِحَاجَتِي
allahumma inni ta`ammadtu ilayka bihajati
O Allah, I am resorting to You with my needs,

وَ أَنْزَلْتُ إِلَيْكَ ٱلْيَوْمَ فَقْرِي
wa anzaltu ilayka alyawma faqri
and I am putting in Your presence my poverty,

وَفَاقَتِي وَمَسْكَنَتِي
wa faqati wa maskanati
my indigence, and my deprivation.

فَأَنَا لِمَغْفِرَتِكَ أَرْجىٰ مِنِّي لِعَمَلِي
fa-ana limaghfiratika arja minni li`amali
Verily, I hope for Your forgiveness more than I rely on my deeds.

وَلَمَغْفِرَتُكَ وَرَحْمَتُكَ أَوْسَعُ مِنْ ذُنُوبِي
wa lamaghfiratuka wa rahmatuka awsa`u min dhunubi
Indeed, Your forgiveness and Your mercy are more inclusive than my sins are.

فَتَوَلَّ قَضَاءَ كُلِّ حَاجَةٍ لِي بِقُدْرَتِكَ عَلَيْهَا
fatawalla qada'a kulli hajatin li biqudratika `alayha
So, (please) embark on settling all my needs out of Your power over them,

وَتَيسِيرِ ذٰلِكَ عَلَيْكَ
wa taysiri dhalika `alayka
out of the easiness for You to do that,

وَلِفَقْرِي إِلَيْكَ
wa lifaqri ilayka
and out of my urgent need for that.

فَإنِّي لَمْ أُصِبْ خَيْراً قَطُّ إِلاَّ مِنَكَ
fa'inni lam usib khayran qattu illa minka
Verily, I have not gained any good thing save from You

وَلَمْ يَصْرِفْ عَنِّي سُوءاً قَطُّ أَحَدٌ سِوَاكَ
wa lam yasrif `anni su'an qattu ahadun siwaka
and none could ever repel evil from me save You.

وَلَسْتُ أَرْجُو لآِخِرَتِي وَدُنْيَايَ
wa lastu arju li-akhirati wa dunyaya wa
I hope for none to stand for me in my affairs of this world and the Next World

وَلاَ لِيَوْمِ فَقْرِي
la liyawmi faqri
and on the day of my poverty,

يَوْمَ يُفْرِدُنِي ٱلنَاسُ فِي حُفْرَتِي
yawma yufriduni alnnasu fi hufrati
when people will leave me alone in my hole (i.e. grave)

وَأُفْضي إِلَيْكَ بِذَنْبِي سِوَاكَ
wa ufdi ilayka bidhanbi siwaka
and I will then confess of my sins before You, except You.

General Recommended Acts for the Day of Friday -Tabs

i.It is highly recommended to bathe oneself, ie, to do Ghusl. In fact, this is one of the most confirmed rituals of Fridays. The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings upon him and his family) is reported to have instructed Imam `Ali (peace be upon him) by saying, “O `Ali; wash yourself every Friday even if you have to purchase water with your daily provisions and have nothing to eat. Verily, no voluntary act is better than this.” Imam al-Sadiq (peace be upon him) is also reported to have said: Whoever washes himself on Fridays and, says the following prayer will be pure all through that week:
أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ ٱللَّهُ
ash-hadu an la ilaha illa allahu
I bear witness that there is no god except Allah,

وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَريكَ لَهُ
wahdahu la sharika lahu
the One, (there is) no associate with Him;

وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّداً عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ
wa ash-hadu anna muhammadan `abduhu wa rasuluhu
and I testify that Muhammad is His servant and His Messenger.

اَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
allahumma salli `ala muhammadin wa ali muhammadin waj`alni mina alttawwabina
O Allah, send blessings to Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,

وَٱجْعَلْنِي مِنَ ٱلتَّوَّابِينَ
waj`alni mina almutatahhirina
and make me of those who turn to You constantly

وَٱجْعَلْنِي مِنَ ٱلْمُتَطَهِّرِينَ
ash-hadu an la ilaha illa allahu
and those who keep themselves pure and clean.

“Pure” in the aforesaid Hadith stands for purification from sins or acceptance of the deeds, which is thus moral purification.
In any case, it is important not to neglect bathing oneself on Fridays when possible. The recommended time of this bathing is between sunrise and midday. In addition, the nearer to midday the better.

Another Dua after Ghusl :Imam Reza (a.s.) narrates:
“Performing ghusl on Friday is desirable which is equal to an obligation. Do not avoid it while you are at home or on a journey. It is enough to perform after sunrise but it is better if it is nearer to noon. Recite this supplication after performing ghusl.”
اَللّٰهُمَّ طَهِّرْنِيْ وَ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِيْ وَ انْقِ غُسْلِيْ وَ اَجْرِ عَلٰى لِسَانِيْ ذِكْرَكَ وَ ذِكْرَ نَبِيِّكَ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّي اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ اٰلِہٖ وَ اجْعَلْنِيْ مِنَ التَّوَّابِيْنَ وَ مِنَ الْمُتَطَهِّرِيْنَ.
allaahumma tahhirnee wa tahhir qalbee wan qe ghuslee wa ajre a’laa lesaanee zikraka wa zikra nabiyyeka mohammadin sallal laaho a’layhe wa aalehi waj a’lnee menat tawwaabeena wa menal motatahhereen.
O Allah! Purify me and purify my heart, adorn my bath, and make Your remembrance and remembrance of Your prophet Muhammad, peace of Allah be on him and his progeny, flow on my tongue. Make me amongst the repantent and the purified ones.


If anyone forgets to perform ghusl on Friday, then have it next morning, till the time of Asr next day or whenever you recollect it.


The Salwaat-Invocation of blessings upon the Holy Prophet and his Household 1000 times and in different formats has been highly recommended for Friday.
Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (peace be upon him) is reported to have said, “For me, no act of worship is more favorable than invoking blessings upon the Prophet and his immaculate Household—may Allah bless them all—on Fridays.” If there is not enough time to repeat this invocation one thousand times, it must be repeated one hundred times at least so that faces will be brightened on the Judgment Day.

It has been also narrated that to invoke blessings upon the Holy Prophet and his household is equal (in reward) to seventy times of going on Hajj. & that all sins will be totally forgiven for those who repeat invocations of blessings upon the Holy Prophet and his Household one hundred times.

ii.It is recommended to cut the mustache neatly and trim the nails, As has been mentioned in narrations, these acts bring about expansion in sustenance, and security from insanity and leprosy. Whilst doing that, say the following :
بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِوَبِٱللَّهِ
bismillahi wa billahi
In the Name of Allah (I begin);and by (the command of) Allah

وَعَلَىٰ سُنَّةِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
wa `ala sunnati muhammadin wa ali muhammad
and according to the tradition of Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad (I do this).

It is also recommended, on cutting the nails, to start with the little finger of the left hand and end with that of the right hand. The same thing is applicable to the nails of the feet. Then, the cut nails should be buried.

iii.It is recommended to apply perfume and put on the best of one’s clothes.

iv.It is recommended to give Sadqa/Alms, for the rewards are doubled up on Fridays and at Friday nights, as is confirmed by narrations, as one thousand folds as giving alms on other days.

v.It is recommended to arrange fruits and wholesome meals to the family members so that Fridays will be their days of pleasure.

vi.It is recommended to eat pomegranate before breakfast and to eat seven leaves of endive before midday. Imam Musa al-Kadhim (peace be upon him) is reported to have said, “The heart of him who eats a pomegranate before breakfast on Fridays will be enlightened for forty days. To eat two pomegranates increases the period of enlightenment to eighty days, and so on. It also dismisses the evil suggestions. Of course, to get rid of Satan’s suggestions is to stop acting disobediently to Almighty Allah; and to stop acting disobediently to Him allows entrance to Paradise.” In al-Misbah, the author has said that to eat pomegranates on Fridays and at Friday nights has great merits.
vii.It is recommended to dedicate Fridays to learning the religious laws and instructions, not to wandering in others’ gardens, accompanying the vicious and the licentious, speaking about the others’ defects, laughing and guffawing, reciting poetry, and discussing useless subjects as well as similar matters. Disadvantages arisen from such matters are too many to be mentioned.
Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (peace be upon him) is reported as saying, “Woe to a Muslim who does not dedicate Fridays to learning the affairs of his religion.”


viii.It is recommended to visit the tombs of one’s relatives in general and parents in particular. Imam al-Baqir (peace be upon him) is reported as saying, “Visit the graves of your relatives on Fridays, for they know about those who visit their graves and will be happy for that.
ix.It is recommended to dye hair with hibiscus, for it saves from leprosy and insanity.

x.Aga Mohinuddin kumaili khurasani in NijatBaksh Giraftaran says that Allah(swt) himself will take care of the person & his family ( like a weekly insurance)if we recites after any salat Fajr/Dhuhr ON FRIDAY the following; Sura Fatiha & Sura Tauheed once & then Sura Falaq & Sura Naas 7 times each

xi.SURAHS It is also highly recommended to recite Surahs al-Nisa' (No. 4)
Surah Hud (No. 11)
al-Kahf (No.18)
al-Saffat (No. 37)
al-Rahman (No. 55
Surah al-Ahqaf (No. 46
Surah al-Mu'minun (No. 23)

xii.Imam al-Sadiq (peace be upon him) is reported as saying that any one who recites Surah al-Ahqaf at Friday nights or on Fridays will not be inflicted by dismays in his worldly life and will be saved from the horrors on the Resurrection Day,
and that any one who recites Surah al-Mu'minun regularly each Friday will come upon a happy end and will be granted an abode in the Supreme Paradise with the Prophets and Messengers of Almighty Allah.

Friday - Day Associated with the Awaited Saviour, Imam Mahdi (peace be upon him)
Friday has a relationship with Imam al-Mahdi —may Allah hasten his advent— from several aspects. On Friday, Imam al-Mahdi (peace be upon him) was born and on Friday, his delightful advent shall be. Hence, to expect Relief on Friday should be more intense than other days.
In the Imam's (peace be upon him) Ziyarat on Fridays the following statement is mentioned; 'Today is Friday, which is your day on which your advent is expected to bring about relief to the believers at your hands..'
In fact, Friday has been decided as feast day just because it is the day on which Imam al-Mahdi (peace be upon him) will reappear in order to purify the entire earth from the filth of polytheism and atheism and from the dirt of acts of disobedience to Almighty Allah and from sins.
It is recommended to recite Dua' al-Nudbah Supplication,

It is also mentioned to recite the supplication that Imam `Ali ibn Musa al-Ridha (peace be upon him) advised to be said for the sake of Imam al-Mahdi (peace be upon him).
from All Supplications related to Imam Mahdi(ajtfs)

Friday and Imam Zamana from Najmuth Saqib
It is having a special significance with regard to Imam Zamana (a.s.). One of them being that the birth of the Holy Imam (a.s.) occurred on that day as was mentioned in Chapter One and also that his reappearance will also take place on Friday; therefore, awaiting and anticipation on that day is more than on other days as is explained in some traditional reports and in it is mentioned in Ziyarat of the Imam specially performed on Friday that: O Master, O Lord of the time, benedictions of God be on you, and on your family members on this Friday and it is the day on which I anticipate your reappearance and victory in it for the believer upon your hands…till the end when it is said:
O my Lord, O the master of the age, blessings of the Almighty Allah be on you, and on your family members; this is Friday and it is the day on which you await your reappearance and the deliverance of the believers at your hands. And I O my master, on that day, am your guest and I seek refuge with you and you, O my master, are the noble one and the descendant of the great ones and you are appointed to afford refuge; thus accept me in your care and give me refuge…and so on.
On the contrary, considering Friday to be a day of Eid from the four important Eid days in fact from the aspect that it is a special day for the believers as they will be elated on seeing the earth purified from the filth of polytheism and infidelity and the dirts of divine disobedience and from the presence of the tyrants, apostates, disbelievers and hypocrites and the appearance of the word of truth, the loftiest religion, laws of faith and the emblems of Muslims without any hurdle and prohibition of anyone from the enemies of the Almighty Allah and his devotees on that bright day will be pleased and elated. In the supplication after the rising of the Sun on Friday there is hint to this point as Sayyid Ibne Taaoos has mentioned in Jamaalul Usboo’1 , p. 152from Imam Moosa Kazim (a.s.) that he said to Muhammad bin Sinan on Friday: Have you recited the necessary supplication this day? He replied: asked: Which supplication? He replied: Say: Peace be on you, O the new blessed day which the Almighty Allah has made as the Eid for His friends, who are purified from the filths and who have exited from mischief and those, who have returned with His Awliya (a.s.) and who are cleaned of pains and the filths of beliefs and evil deeds, who have devoted their lives to the love of the friends of the Almighty Allah. Then turn towards the Sun and say:
“Peace be on you O the brilliant Sun.” and so on. On the contrary, Friday is one of the names of the master of the affair or it is an allusion to that noble man or the reason of naming Friday as Friday as Saduq in Khesaal p. 396 has narrated from Saqar bin Abi Dalf.
Imam Ali Naqi (a.s.) says in the exegesis of the tradition of the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.a.) that you must not be inimical to the days, as they will also be inimical to you. Then he said: We are the days… Till he said: And Friday is the son of my son and the folks of truth will gather with him.
Saduq said: Days are not the Imams (a.s.); however it is an allusion to them so that other than the folks of truth do not understand its meaning as the Almighty Allah has stated:
“I swear by the fig and the olive, And mount Sinai, And this city made secure,”95:1-3 implying the Prophet, Ali, Hasan and Husain (a.s.) and then He has mentioned some other similes also therein. Husain bin Hamadan in his book has narrated from Hasan bin Masud and Muhammad bin Khalil that they said: We came to our master, Abul Hasan Ali bin Muhammad (a.s.) in Samarrah and found him with some Shia people. We asked the Imam regarding the auspicious and inauspicious days.
He replied: Do not be inimical to the days, lest they become inimical to you.
I asked the Imam about the meaning of this tradition. He replied: There are two meanings of this tradition: outward and inward. The outward meaning is that Saturday is for us, Sunday is for our Shia, Monday is for Bani Umayyah, Tuesday is for their followers; Wednesday is for Bani Abbas and Thursday is for their followers; and Friday is the Eid for Muslims. And the inward meaning is that Saturday is my grandfather, the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.a.), Sunday is Ameerul Momineen (a.s.), Monday is Hasan and Husain (a.s.), Tuesday is Ali bin Husain, Muhammad bin Ali and Ja’far bin Muhammad (a.s.); Wednesday is Moosa Ibne Ja’far, Ali bin Moosa and Muhammad bin Ali (a.s.) and I; and Thursday is my son, Hasan and Friday is his son; who will unite the words; that is the faiths. All will unite on a single faith and through it he will perfect the bounty and the Almighty Allah will prove and express the truth and destroy falsehood and he is your awaited Mahdi. Then he recited: “In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. What remains with Allah is better for you if you are believers, and I am not a keeper over you.”11:86
Then he said: He, by Allah, is the remnant of Allah.2Hidaayatul Kubraa, p. 363 Saduq (r.a.) writes in Khesaal:394 narrating from Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) that he said: Saturday is for us, Sunday is for our Shia, Monday is for our enemies, Tuesday is for Bani Umayyah, Wednesday is for taking medicine, Thursday is the day when wishes will be fulfilled and Friday is for hygiene and for use of perfumes and it is the Eid of Muslims and it is the superior to Eidul Fitr and Eidul Azha. Day of Ghadeer is the best of the Eids and it is the 18th of Zilhajj and it was a Friday. The Qaaem of us Ahle Bayt (a.s.), will appear on Friday and the Judgment Day will be on Friday and no deeds is better on Friday, except reciting Salawat on Muhammad and Aale Muhammad (a.s.). Allamah Majlisi has narrated in Behaarul Anwaarvol. 3, pp. 340-341 that from the ancient sources of our scholars: After you conclude the Morning Prayer on Friday, recite the following testimony and then recite Salawat on Muhammad and Aale Muhammad (a.s.) and it is a lengthy supplication and some of its sentences are related to Imam Asr (a.s.) In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. O Allah, be for Your Wali among Your creatures, a protector, a guard, a leader and helper, till he lives in Your earth in peace and enjoys it for a long time. And appoint him and his progeny the inheritor Imams.
And bring together his dispersed affairs, and perfect his rule, and bring for him his subjects and make his glory strong, and bless him with patience and forbearance. Till he takes revenge and give peace to his heart. And cure the hearts of malice and make the burning hearts cool. And end the regret of aggrieved souls, from the aspect of blood shed unlawfully and broken relations, and unknown obedience [ignorance about compulsory obedience of the rightful Imam] make the hardships good for him and make Your bestowals wide and complete Your bounties on him with a good protection to him. O Allah, remove the fear of enemy from him and erase his memory of enemies; do bad with all those who wish bad for him and plot against all those who plot against him and reserve evil for him. O Allah, scatter their conglomeration and end their limit and make their hearts overawed and make their steps slip. And crush their tribes, and scatter their affairs as they have wasted the prayer and have followed their base desires.
They have committed evils and kept away from good. Therefore, apprehend them through exemplary punishment and show them regrets. Indeed You are powerful over everything.
It is recommended to recite the well known Dua Nudbah, which is related to His Eminence and in fact the points mentioned therein are very touching and moving; causing one to be emotionally charged with attachment to the Imam for one, who has tasted even a little bit of the syrup of his love; it is bitterness of the poison of his separation, which becomes effective on Friday; on the contrary on its eve also as is mentioned in an ancient book of Ziyarat written by Shaykh Tabarsi, the author of Ehtejaaj, in which it is mentioned that it should be recited and since it is a lengthy supplication and is available in many other books as well, we have not mentioned it here.
The best deed on Friday
He says that the best of the deeds on Friday is to recite a hundred times after Asr Prayer: O Allah, bless Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad and hasten their reappearance. And in many supplications of Friday, seeking help and hastening of the reappearance in the first supplications of the post prayer litanies of Zuhr on Friday, it is mentioned: O Allah, as my life is dedicated for Paradise with an infallible from the progeny of the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.a.), who is aggrieved due to his victimization and whose rulership is destined that through him He would fill up the earth with justice as it would have been fraught with injustice and oppression. O Allah, hasten his reappearance.

Another Friday Dua - Al Kafi Vol 2 pg 577
اللّهُمَّ اجْعَلْني أخْشاكَ كأني أراكَ وَأسْعِدْني بِتَقْواكَ، وَلاتُشْقِني بِنَشْطي لِمَعاصيكَ وَخِرْ لي في قَضائِكَ وَبارِكْ لي في قَدَرِكَ حَتّى لا أحُبَّ تأخيرَ ما عَجّلْتَ وَلاتَعْجيلَ ماأخّرْتَ،

O Allah make me submissive, till I surrender to Thee, make me happy by putting “fear of God” in my heart, Do not make me miserable on account of disobedience unto Thee. Write (prescribe) for me freedom from pain, trouble and anxiety, make ready for me blessings and happiness, so that what is last does not come in advance. Or what is urged to happen quickly is not delayed. Give me contentment and an independent disposition.

 واجْعَلْ غِناي في نَفْسي وَمَتِعْني في سَمْعي وَبَصَري وَاجْعَلْهُما الوارِثَيْنِ مِنّي، وَانْصِرْني عَلى مَنْ ظَلَمَني وَأرِني فيهِ قُدْرَتَكَ يارَبِّ وَأقِرَّ بِفَضْلِكَ عَيْني.

Make me derive advantage from the power of hearing (listen to and accept advise and obey), And seeing (discernment, intelligence, and perception of truth); And both of them to my inheritors (children) Give me an upper hand over him who intimidates me, and treat me well through Thy might and power;

اللّهُمَّ أعِنّي عَلى هَوْلِ يَوْمِ القيامَةِ، وَأخْرِجْني مِنَ الدُّنْيا سالِما، وَزَوِّجني مِنَ الحورِ العينِ، وَاكْفِني مؤُونَتي وَمؤُونَةَ عيالي وَمؤُونَةَ النّاسِ، وَأدْخِلْني بِرَحْمَتِكَ في عِبادِكَ الصالِحينَ. 
allahumma a-i’nnee a’laa hawli yawmil qiyaamah wa akhrijnee minad dunyaa saaliman wa adkhinil jannata aaminan’w wa zawwijnee minal h’ooril e’eni wakfinee moo-natee wa moo-nata a’yaalee wa moo-natan naasi wa adkhilnee birah’matika fee i’baadikas’ s’aalih’eena
O Lord, and keep me in that exact state. O Allah! Attend to and take care of me in the frightening hours of the Day of Judgment. Make me leave this world in safe and sound condition, and enter the permanent land of bliss and beauty (Paradise) in peace and tranquility; And join the delightful charming people who have refined manners, intelligent minds and beautiful faces, multiply provisions allotted to me, and to my dependents, also promote welfare of the people and make me sit, through Thy mercy, in the company of Thy upright servants.

اللّهُمَّ إنْ تُعَذِّبْني فَأهْلٌ لِذلِكَ أنا وَإنْ تَغْفِرْ لي فأهْلٌ لِذلك أنْتَ ، وكيف تعذبني
allahumma in u-a’d’d’ibnee fa-ahlun lid’aalika anaa wa in taghfir lee fa-ahlun lid’aalika anta wa kayfa tu-a’d’d’ibnee
O Allah! If penalized (it means) I deserved punishment; if forgiven ( it is because) Thou art (the Most Merciful) Master. How would Thou punish?

 يا سيدي وحبك في قلبي ، أما وعزتك لئن فعلت لتجمعن بيني وبين قوم طالما عاديتهم فيك
yaa sayyidee wa h’ubbuka fee qalbee amaa wa i’zzatika la-in fa-a’lta d’aalika bee li-najma-u’nna baynee wa bayna qawmin t’aala maa a’adaytuhum feeka
 O My Master! My heart is full of Thy Love, undoubtedly, and Thy absolute authority, very kindly, take notice of that, and keep us together with people who are given respite. How much less attention they may pay to Thy commands

اللهم بحق أوليائك الطاهرين اللّهُمَّ إرْزِقْنا صِدْقَ الحَديثِ وَأداءِ الامانَةِ وَالُمحافَظَةَ عَلى الصلواتِ،
allaahumma bih’aqqi awliyaa-ikat’ t’aahireena a’layimus salaam arzuqnaa s’idqal h’adeethi wa adaaa-al amaanatil muh’aafaz’ata a’las’ s’alawaati
O Allah! For the sake of Thy pure and pious friends, peace be upon them, make us preserve true traditions of the Holy Prophet (S.A), And come up to the confidence put in us, to keep safe and watch over the “backbone” of Thy religion (adoration and worship of Allah).

 اللّهُمَّ إنَّا أحَقُّ خَلْقِكَ أنْ تَفْعَلَهُ بِنا، اللّهُمَّ افْعَلْهُ بِنا برحمتك
allaahumma innaa ah’aqqu khalqika an taf-a’la a’aalika binaa allaahummaf a’lhu binaa birah’matika
O Allah! Truly, we are the worthiest among thy creation, treat us in that context. O Allah! Treat us mercifully.

اللّهُمَّ ارْفَعْ ظَنّي صاعِداً وَلا تُطْمِعْ فِيَّ عَدوّا وَلا حاسِداً وَأحْفَظْنِي قائِما وَقاعِداً وَيَقْظانَ وَراقِداً،
allaahumma arfaa’z’annee ilayka s’aa-i’dan wa laa tat’ma-inna fiyya a’duwwan wa laa h’aasidan wah’faz’nee qaaa-iman wa qaa-i’dan wa yaqt’anna wa raaqidan
O Allah! Make my knowledge about thee of the highest quality. Do not let me drown myself in hatred, nor feel resentful; keep me steadfast, within bounds, obedient, enduring.

اللّهُمَّ إغْفِرْ لي وَارْحَمْني وَاهْدِني سَبيلَكَ الاقْوَمُ وَقِني حَرَّ جَهَنَّمَ وَ احْطِطْ عَنّي المَغْرَمَ وَالمَأثَمَ وَاجْعَلْني مِنْ خيارِ العالَمِ.
allaahummaghfir lee warh’amnee wahdinee sabeelakal aqwamu wa qinee h’arra jahannama wa h’areeqal muz”rami wah’t’ut’ a’nnil maghrama wal maa-thuma waj-a’lnee min khiyaaril a’alami
O Allah forgive me, have mercy on me, make me strive in Thy way honestly, free me from the heat of burning Hell, from being consumed by the blazing fire, make less what I have to pay back, and punishment I deserve, make me be one of the choicest people for all times.

إرْحَمْني مَمّا لاطاقَةَ لي بِهِ وَلاصَبْرَ لي عَلَيْهِ. برحمتك يا أرحم الرحمين ،  اللهم صل على محمد وآهل بيته الطيبين الطاهرين
allaahumma arh’amnee mimmaa laa t’aaqai lee bihee wa laa s’abra lee a’layhi bi-rah’matika yaa arh’amar raah’imeen allaahumma s’alli a’laa muh’ammadin’w wa aali muh’ammad.
 O Allah! Have mercy on me because have not the strength, nor patience to withstand it (punishment), Through Thy mercy, O the Most Merciful.  O Allah send blessings on Muhammad and on the children of Muhammad.

The Holy Prophet (s) is reported to have said that one who repeats the following prayer seven times on Friday will be also allowed Paradise if he departs life on that day:   
اَللَّهُمَّ انْتَ رَبِّي
allahumma anta rabbi
O Allah, You are my Lord;

لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ انْتَ
la ilaha illa anta
there is no god save You;

خَلَقْتَني وَانَا عَبْدُكَ وَٱبْنُ امَتِكَ
khalaqtani wa ana `abduka wabnu amatika
You have created me, and I am Your slave and the son of Your bondmaid;

وَفي قَبْضَتِكَ وَنَاصِيَتي بِيَدِكَ
wa fi qabdatika wa nasiyati biyadika
and I am in Your grip; and my forehead is in Your Hand;

امْسَيْتُ عَلَىٰ عَهْدِكَ وَوَعْدِكَ مَا ٱسْتَطَعْتُ
amsaytu `ala `ahdika wa wa`dika maistata`tu
I come to observe my covenant and promise to You as much as I can.

اعُوذُ بِرِضَاكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا صَنَعْتُ
a`udhu biridaka min sharri ma sana`tu
I take refuge in Your pleasure against the evil of my deeds.

ابُوءُ بِنِعْمَتِكَ وَابُوءُ بِذَنْبِي
abu'u bini`matika wa abu'u bidhanbi
I acknowledge Your favors and confess of my sins.

إِلَهِي وَسَيِّدِي قَدِ انْقَطَعْتُ عَنْ ذَوِي الْقُرْبَى وَاسْتَغْنَيْتُ بِكَ عَنْ أَهْلِ الدُّنْيَا مُتَعَرِّضاً لِمَعْرُوفِكَ
أَعْطِنِي مِنْ مَعْرُوفِكَ مَعْرُوفاً تُغْنِينِي بِهِ عَمَّنْ سِوَاكَ.

Friday Surahs and Duas After Salaat-ul Dhuhr
Shaykh al-Tusi has quoted Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (peace be upon him) as saying: Whoever recites on Friday after the concluding part of the Dhuhr Prayer the following parts of the Holy Qur'an, will be under the divine protection all over the week:
(1) Surah al-Fatihah seven times, (2) Surah al-Nas seven times, (3) Surah al-Falaq seven times, (4) Surah al-Tawhid seven times, (5) Surah al-Kafirun seven times,then; (6) last two verses of Surah al-Tawbah (No. 9)

Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (peace be upon him) is also reported to have said: If one says the following prayer after the Dhuhr Prayer 3 times, will remain secure from affliction until next friday and no sin will be recorded against him for a whole year:
اَللَّهُمَّ ٱجْعَلْ صَلاَتَكَ
allahumma ij`al salawatika
O Allah, (please do) let Your blessings

وَصَلاَةَ مَلاَئكَتِكَ وَرُسُلِكَ

and the blessings of Your angels and Messengers

عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
`ala muhammadin wa ali muhammadin
be on Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad.

Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (peace be upon him) is also reported to have said: If one says the following supplicatory prayer after the Fajr Prayer or the Dhuhr Prayer (on Fridays), he will not die before he catches the age of Imam al-Mahdi (peace be upon him):
اَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَجِّلْ فَرَجَهُمْ
allahumma salli `ala muhammadin wa ali muhammadin wa `ajjil farajahum
O Allah, send blessings to Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad and hasten their Relief.


Friday 2 Rakat Salat, after Salaat-ul Dhuhr In his book of Misbah al-Mutahajjid, Shaykh al-Tusi says that the Holy Imams, peace be upon them, are reported to have said: When one offers, after the obligatory Dhuhr Prayer on Fridays, a two-unit prayer reciting in each unit Surah al-Fatihah once and repeating Surah al-Tawhid seven times and after accomplishment says the following prayer, one will be saved against all misfortunes and seditious matters up to the next Friday, and will be joined with Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him and his Household, and Prophet Abraham, peace be upon him:
اَللَّهُمَّ ٱجْعَلْنِي مِنْ أَهْلِ ٱلْجَنَّةِ
allahumma ij`alni min ahli aljannati
O Allah, include me with the inhabitants of Paradise

ٱلَّتِي حَشُوهَا ٱلْبَرَكَةُ

وَأَبِينَا إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلاَمُ
wa abina ibrahima `alayhi alssalamu
and our father Abraham, peace be upon him.

Commenting on this supplication, Shaykh al-Tusi instructs that one who is not from the Holy Prophet’s offspring should say, “his father (abihi)” instead of “our father (abina).”




Friday Duas after Salaat-ul 'Asr
It has been narrated that the best hours of Fridays are these coming after the `Asr Prayer. Accordingly, it is recommended to repeat the following invocation one hundred times at that time:

It has been narrated on the authority of al-Harith al-Hamadani that Imam `Ali Amir al-Mu'minin (peace be upon him) said: If possible, offer on Fridays ten units of prayer with perfect genuflection (ruku`) and prostration (sujud) repeating the following litany one hundred times between each couple (i.e. two) of units:
سُبْحَانَ ٱللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ
subhana allahi wa bihamdihi
All glory be to Allah and with the Praising o

To offer this prayer brings about a great reward.

A Third Prayer
It has been narrated that Imam al-Sadiq (peace be upon him) said, “One who recites Surahs Ibrahim (No. 14) and al-Hijr (No. 15) altogether in a two-unit prayer on Fridays will be saved from poverty, insanity, and misfortunes forever.”

Friday night ( preceeding saturday) salat
Recite a 2 Rakat Salat with Sura Al Hamd & Sura Qadr in first Rakat & Sura AL Hamd & Zilzal in the second Rakat

Duas at the Last Hour of Friday
Shaykh al-Tusi has mentioned that the last hour of Friday, which lasts to sunset, is the hour in which prayers are responded. Therefore, it is required to pray to Almighty Allah insistently at that hour. It has been also narrated that this hour begins when half of the sun disk sets and the other half only remains visible. Lady Fatimah al-Zahra' (peace be upon her), used to pray to Almighty Allah at this hour so that her prayers be answered.
It is recommended to recite before sunset the famous prayer known as Du`a' al-Simat ( Shabbour)
It is also recommended to say the following litany that is reported from the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his Household):
سُبْحَانَكَ لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ
subhanaka la ilaha illa anta
Glory be to You! There is no god save You!

يَا حَنَّانُ يَا مَنَّانُ
ya hannanu ya mannanu
O All-tender! O All-bestower!

يَا بَدِيعَ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ وَٱلأَرْضِ
ya badi`a alssamawati wal-ardi
O Fashioner of the heavens and the earth!

يَا ذَا ٱلْجَلاَلِ وَٱلإكْرَامِ
ya dhaljalali wal-ikrami
of Majesty and Honor.
