السلام عليك يا حافظ أسرار رب العالمين
"Salutations upon You, the protector/keeper of the secrets of the Lord of the worlds"

السلام عليك يا ناظر شجرة طوبى و سدرة المنتهى
"Salutations upon You, the one who is seeing the Tree of Tooba and Sidrat Al Muntaha* (Point of extreme end)"

* Sidrat al-Muntaha - Refers to the point of extreme end to which Prophet Mohammad (saww) went in his Meraaj.


السلام عليك يا حجة الله و دليل إرادته

"Salutations upon You, O the Proof of Allah (swt) and evidence of his intentions"

يا مولاي شقي من خالفك و سعد من أطاعك

"O' My Master, wretched (unhappy) is the person who opposes You, and Happy is the person who obeys You."


Following is taken from a dua which is to be recited during the period of Ghaibah of the Imam (atfs):

فصبرني على ذلك حتى لا احب تعجيل ما أخرت ولا تأخير ما عجلت ، ولا أكشف عما سترته ، ولا أبحث عما كتمته ، ولا انازعك في تدبيرك ، ولا أقول : لم وكيف؟ وما بال ولي الامر  لا يظهر

"So, grant me patience to endure that (Ghaibah), so that I will not long for hastening that which You have delayed, or delaying that which You would hasten. And I do not disclose that which You have concealed, I do not search out for that which You have hidden and I do not dispute with You about Your management, and I do not ask, ‘why’, ‘how’ and what for the Representative is not coming"

The complete dua can be see here: http://www.duas.org/allahummaarrifni.htm 


السلام عليك يا باب الله الذي لا يؤتى الا منه

"Salutations upon You, O the door of Allah (swt), One cannot reach Allah (swt) but through it."

السلام عليك يا سبيل الله الذي من سلك غيره هلك

"Salutations upon You, O the Path of Allah (swt), One who follows others than You is destroyed."



اللهم فثبتني على دينك واستعملني بطاعتك ، ولين قلبي لولي أمرك ، وعافني مما امتحنت به خلقك ، وثبتني على طاعة ولي أمرك الذي سترته عن خلقك

"O Allah, make me steadfast on Your religion, Seek me in Your obedience,Make my heart lenient/soft towards Your representative, Make me free from that which You have used as tests for Your creatures, And make me steadfast on the obedience to Your representative whom You have hidden from Your creatures."



 واجعلنا ممن تقر عينه برؤيته ، وأقمنا بخدمته ، وتوفنا على ملته ، واحشرنا في زمرته

"And make us from those whose eyes are delighted by seeing Him [i.e. Qaim (atfs)], and make us stay in serving Him, and give us death upon His religion, and include us in His group"



اللهم ولا تسلبنا اليقين لطول الامد في غيبته وانقطاع خبره عنا ، ولا تنسنا ذكره وانتظاره والايمان وقوة اليقين في ظهوره والدعاء له والصلاة عليه حتى لا يقنطنا طول غيبته من ظهوره وقيامه ، ويكون يقيننا في ذلك كيقيننا في قيام رسولك صلواتك عليه وآله ، وما جاء به من وحيك وتنزيلك ، وقو قلوبنا على الايمان به حتى تسلك بنا على يده منهاج الهدى والحجة العظمى ، والطريقة الوسطى ، وقونا على طاعته ، وثبتنا على متابعته واجعلنا في حزبه وأعوانه وأنصاره ، والراضين بفعله ولا تسلبنا ذلك في حياتنا ولا عند وفاتنا حتى تتوفانا ونحن على ذلك غير شاكين ولا ناكثين ولا مرتابينولا مكذبين

"O Allah, do not deprive us of our strong faith because of his long-lasting Ghaibah (occultation) and disconnection of His news from us. Do not make us forget to mention him [constantly], and to wait for him, to believe in him, to have strong faith in his re-appearance (Zahoor), to pray for him, and to invoke Your blessings on him so that his long-lasting occultation (ghaibah) will never make us despair of his advent and our faith in this will be just like our faith in the advent of Your Messenger, Your peace be upon him and his AhlulBayt, and [just like our faith in] all that which has been conveyed by him to us through Your Revelation and Divine communication. O Allah, strengthen our hearts upon believing in him so that You will lead us, at his hands, to the path of true guidance, the greatest destination, and the moderate way. Grant us strength to obey him, make us firm in supporting him, and include us with his party, backers, allies, and those satisfied with his deed. Do not deprive us of this during our lifetimes nor at the hour of our death, but (please) make us die while we are upon this (faith), without doubt, and without breach of our covenant to him, and without suspect, or belying him."



The following are the words from a Ziyarah of Imam Az-Zaman (atfs):

أسألك يا مولاي أن تسأل الله تبارك وتعالى في صلاح شأني ، وقضاء حوائجي ، وغفران ذنوبي ، والأخذ بيدي في ديني ودنياي وآخرتي لي ولاخواني وأخواتي المؤمنين والمؤمنات كافة ، إنه غفور رحيم

"I ask You, O My Master to ask the Almighty God for guidance in my matters, and fulfillment of my needs, and the forgiveness of my sins, and taking my hand in my religion and worldly affairs, and hereafter to me and my brothers and sisters all believing men and women, verily He (Allah)is Forgiving, Merciful."

From a Ziyarat of Imam Qaim (atfs):

اَلْحَمْدُ للهِ الَّذي هَدانا لِهذا وَعَرَّفَنا اَوْلِياءَهُ وَاَعْداءَهُ وَوَفَّقَنا لِزِيارَةِ اَئِمَّتِنا، وَلَمْ يَجْعَلْنا مِنَ الْمُعانِدينَ النّاصِبينَ، وَلا مِنَ الْغُلاةِ الْمُفَوِّضينَ، وَلا مِنَ الْمُرْتابينَ الْمُقَصِّرينَ

الْغَوْثَ الْغَوْثَ الْغَوْثَ يا صاحِبَ الزَّمانِ

"All praise to Allah (swt) who guided us to this and made known to us His friends and His enemies and brought us for the Ziyarah of our Imam's (as) and did not make us from their enemies and did not make us from the Gullat al-Mufawizen (extremists) and did not make us from the doubtful Muqassireen [those who lower the status of the Imam's (as)]"

"Help Help Help O'Imam of The Time"

From a Ziyarat of Imam al-Qaim (atfs):

أَشْهَدُ أَنَّكَ الْحُجَّةُ عَلَى مَنْ مَضَى وَ مَنْ بَقِيَ، وَ أَنَّ حِزْبَكَ هُمُ الْغَالِبُونَ وَ أَوْلِيَاءَكَ هُمُ الْفَائِزُونَ، وَ أَعْدَاءَكَ هُمُ الْخَاسِرُونَ، وَ أَنَّكَ خَازِنُ كُلِّ عِلْمٍ، وَ فَاتِقُ كُلِّ رَتْقٍ، وَ مُحَقِّقُ كُلِّ حَقٍّ، وَ مُبْطِلُ كُلِّ بَاطِلٍ، رَضِيتُكَ يَا مَوْلَايَ إِمَاماً وَ هَادِياً، وَ وَلِيّاً وَ مُرْشِداً، لَا أَبْتَغِي بِكَ بَدَلًا، وَ لَا أَتَّخِذُ مِنْ دُونِكَ وَلِيّا

"I testify that You [al-Qaim (as)] are the Proof upon those who have passed and those are remaining. And that your party is victorious and Your friends/followers/lovers are successful and Your enemies are the losers. And that You treasurer of every knowledge, and the opener of everything closed and the one who establishes all of the truth (Haqq) and the one who abolishes all falsehood. I am satisfied O my Master with You, as my Imam and Guide and Guardian (Wali) and Mentor (Murshid). I do not seek any one in exchange of You and I do not take any guardian (Wali) apart from You."
