1. It is narrated that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) narrates from Jibraeel and Israfeel, “One who offers a ten rakat Salaat on the eve of Eid in units of two reciting Surah Tauheed ten times in each rakat after Surah Fatiha and recites Sub- h’aanallaahi wal-h’amdu lillaahi wa laa ilaaha illallaahu wallaahu akbar in Ruku and Sajdah. And recites Salaam after every two rakats and recites Astaghfirullaaha wa atoobu ilaih a thousand times after Salaat and then prostrates reciting ‘Yaa h’ayyu yaa qayyoomu yaa dhaljalaali wal ikraami yaa rah’maanad dunyaa wal aakhirati wa rah’eemahumaa yaa akramal akrameena yaa arh’amar raah’imeena yaa ilaahal awwaleena wal aakhireenaghfir lee dhunoobee wa taqabbal s’aumee wa s’alaatee wa qiyaami’ I swear by Him Who has made me a true prophet, that before he lifts his head up from prostration, he would be forgiven. All the deeds performed in the month of Ramadan would be accepted and all his sins would be wiped off even if he has committed seventy such sins, which are greater than the sins of all people. I asked, ‘O Jibraeel! Will the deeds performed in the month of Ramadan be accepted for this person only or for everyone?’ Jibraeel (a.s.) said, ‘O Muhammad! I swear by Him Who has appointed you as a true prophet, the status of that person near Allah is such that the deeds performed by him and others in the month of Ramadan would be accepted. Also Salaat and fasts of the people living between east and west that have faith in Oneness of Allah would be accepted. If this person repents his Salaat, fasts and Qiyam would be accepted. He would be forgiven and his supplications will be accepted because the Almighty Allah says in His book, ‘And you that ask forgiveness of your Lord, then turn to Him.’ He further says, ‘And those who when they commit an indecency or do injustice to their souls remember Allah and ask forgiveness for their faults- and who forgives the faults but Allah’. He also says, ‘And ask forgiveness of Allah; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.’ In another place, He says, ‘and ask His forgiveness; surely He is oft-returning (to mercy).’ This gift is special to me and my Ummah. The prophets and their people before me did not get this gift.”




حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِیمَ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ الْهَمْدَانِیُّ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا إِسْمَاعِیلُ بْنُ الْفَضْلِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا سَخْتَوَیْهُ بْنُ شَبِیبٍ الْبَاهِلِیُّ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا عَاصِمٌ عَنْ إِسْمَاعِیلَ بْنِ سُلَیْمَانَ التَّیْمِیِّ عَنْ أَبِی عُثْمَانَ النَّهْدِیِّ عَنْ سَلْمَانَ الْفَارِسِیِّ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص مَا مِنْ عَبْدٍ یُصَلِّی لَیْلَهَ الْعِیدِ سِتَّ رَکَعَاتٍ إِلَّا شُفِّعَ فِی أَهْلِ بَیْتِهِ کُلِّهِمْ وَ إِنْ کَانُوا قَدْ وَجَبَتْ لَهُمُ النَّارُ قَالُوا فَلِمَ ذَاکَ یَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ قَالَ لِأَنَّ الْمُحْسِنَ لَا یَحْتَاجُ إِلَی الشَّفَاعَهِ إِنَّمَا الشَّفَاعَهُ لِکُلِّ هَالِکٍ وَ قَالَ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحُسَیْنِ یَقْرَأُ فِی کُلِّ رَکْعَهٍ خَمْسَ مَرَّاتٍ قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ.


2. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) says, “One who offers a six rakat Salaat on the eve of Eid would be able to intercede for all members of his family even if they be condemned to Hell.” The narrator asked, “O Messenger of Allah! Why will the intercession of sinners be accepted?” He replied, “Virtuous do not need intercession. They are sinners who need it much.” Muhammad bin Husain (Shaykh Sadooq) says that one should recite Surah Tauheed five times in each rakat of the above-mentioned prayer.
