19-1 Abu Ahmad Hani ibn Mahmood ibn Hani al-Abdi narrated that his father quoted Abul Hassan Muhammad ibn al-Hassan al-Qaderi, on the authority of Abu Muhammad Abdus ibn Muhammad al-Bolghashazi, on the authority of Mansoor ibn Asad, on the authority of Ahmad ibn Abdullah, on the authority of Ishaq ibn Yahya, on the authority of Khasif ibn Abdul Rahman, on the authority of Sa’id ibn Jobayr that Ibn Abbas said, “Once Ali (MGB) faced the Prophet (MGB) and asked him something. Then the Prophet (MGB) told him, ‘O Ali! I swear by Him who appointed me to the Prophethood that I have more or less some things which my friend Gabriel has brought for me and said, ‘O Muhammad! This is a gift for you from the Honorable the Exalted God who has honored you with it and which He has not given to any of the Prophets before you. It is nineteen words of supplications which are sure to be effective for anyone who has hurt feelings; is involved in difficulties; is sad or frightened by the thieves and fire; or is frightened by a ruler. God would give relief to any such persons who use these supplications. These nineteen supplications are as follows: four of them are written on Isra’fil’s forehead; four of them are written on Michael’s forehead ; four of them are written around the Throne; four of them are written on Gabriel’s forehead and three of them are written where God has willed.’ Ali ibn Abi Talib (MGB) asked, ‘How can we supplicate using them?’ The Prophet (MGB) replied, ‘You should say:O Support of him who lacks support; O Hoard of him who lacks hoard; O Prop of him who lacks prop; O Shelter of him who lacks shelter; O Aid of him who is aidless; O Treasure of him who has no treasure; O Might of him who wants might; O He Who pardons generously; O He Who overlooks excellently; O Help of the weak; O Treasure of the poor; O He Who is greatlyhoped; O savior of the drowned; O rescuer of the perishing; O All-munificent; O All- benign; O All-gracious; O All-benevolent; It is You alone before Whom the darkness of night has prostrated. So have the light of day, the brightness of moon, the radiance of sun, the rustle of trees, and the murmur of water. O Allah; O Allah; O Allah. There is no god save You alone without having any partner. O my Lord; O Allah; (please do) bless Mu¦ammad and the Household of Mu¦ammad and do to us all that which suits You. Then you should ask God for what you need. It is hoped that God willing, it be fulfilled.’”
