1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from abu ‘Abd Allah from Ziyad al-Qandiy from ‘Abd al-Rahim al-Qasir who has said the following: “I visited abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, and said, ‘I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for your cause; I have invented a prayer.’ He said, ‘Keep your invention away from me. When you face a difficult condition, seek asylum with the Messenger of Allah, perform two Rak‘at Salah (prayer), as a present to the Messenger of Allah.’ I then asked, ‘How should I do it?’ He said, ‘Take a bath, perform two Rak‘at Salah (prayer), begin just as you do in obligatory Salah (prayer) and read the testimonies just as you do in obligatory Salah (prayer). At the end of testimony and Salam say, “O Lord, You are Salam (peace or safety), from You comes safety, to You returns safety, Allahumma Salli ‘Ala Muhammad wa ‘Ali Muhammad (O Allah grant Muhammad and his family a compensation worthy of their serving Your cause). Deliver my salutation to Muhammad and the spirits of truthful ’A’immah, ‘Alayhim al-Salam, and to me Salam from them and the blessings of Allah. O Allah, these two (Rak‘at Salah (prayer)) are my gift to the Messenger of Allah. Please grant to me the reward that I wished and about which I placed my hopes before You and Your Messenger, O Guardian of the believers.” Then make sajdah and say, “O the Living One, the Guardian, the Living who never dies, O the Living One, no one other than You, deserves worship, O the owner of glory, and grace, O merciful above all merciful ones”- forty times. Then place the right side of your face on the ground and say the above forty times. Then place the left side of your face on the ground and say the same forty times. Raise thereafter your head, stretch your hands and say the above forty times. Then hold your beard with your left hand, weep or make a weeping face and say, “O Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah, I complain before Allah and before you about my needs as well as before your Ahl al-Bayt (members of your family), the right guides about my needs, through you I turn to Allah about my needs.” Then make sajdah and say, “O Allah, O Allah,” for a full breath, Allahumma Salli ‘Ala Muhammad wa ‘Ali Muhammad (O Allah grant Muhammad and his family a compensation worthy of their serving Your cause).’ Please grant my wishes and needs.’” “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘I guarantee from Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Glorious, that He will not leave your needs and wishes without being met and fulfilled.’”

2ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِنَا رَفَعَهُ إِلَى أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) قَالَ فِي الرَّجُلِ يَحْزُنُهُ الأمْرُ أَوْ يُرِيدُ الْحَاجَةَ قَالَ يُصَلِّي رَكْعَتَيْنِ يَقْرَأُ فِي إِحْدَاهُمَا قُلْ هُوَ الله أَحَدٌ أَلْفَ مَرَّةٍ وَفِي الأخْرَى مَرَّةً ثُمَّ يَسْأَلُ حَاجَتَهُ.


2. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from certain individuals of our people in a marfu’ manner who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that if a man is sad and depressed about something or because of an unfulfilled wish, he should perform two Rak‘at Salah (prayer). In one he should recite Chapter 112 of the Holy Quran one thousand times and in the second Rak‘at once, then ask for his wish.”

3. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Ali ibn Duwayl from Muqatil ibn Muqatil who has said the following: “I said to al-Rida, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, ‘I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for your cause, teach me a prayer for help in my needs.’ The Imam said, ‘When you need something and want Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Glorious, to help you, take a bath and dress up in your cleanest dress, use perfume, go under the open sky and perform two Rak‘at Salah (prayer). Begin Salah (prayer) and recite al-Fatihah and then Chapter 112 of the Holy Quran fifteen times. Then kneel down for Ruku‘ and recite chapter 112 of the Holy Quran fifteen times. Thereafter complete this prayer like the Salah (prayer) of Tasbih discussed in Chapter 96 above, except that recitation in this Salah (prayer) is fifteen times. After Salam read Chapter 112 of the Holy Quran fifteen times. Thereafter bow down for sajdah to say, “O Lord, everything, other than You, from Your Throne down to earth if worshipped is false. You are Allah in all truth and clarity. Please grant me such and such wish that I need, in this hour.” Strive to express your prayer as best as you can.”’

4. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from al-Husayn ibn Sa‘id from abu Ali al-Khazzaz who has said the following: “I visited abu ’Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, and a man also came to him saying, ‘I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for your cause, my brother suffers from something that I feel embarrassed to mention.’ The Imam said, ‘Do not mention it and tell him to fast on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. When the sun declines to the west at noontime, he should go out somewhere so no one can see him while dressed in two pieces of his new or just washed clothes, and perform two Rak‘at Salah (prayer), then expose his knees, place his palms and forehead on the ground. In his Salah (prayer), he should recite al-Fatihah al-Kitab ten times. Thereafter he should recite Chapter 112 of the Holy Quran ten times, in Ruku‘ fifteen times, in sajdah ten times, between the two sajdah when sitting twenty times. He should perform four Rak‘at Salah (prayer) in this way. After completing Tashahhud (the two testimonies) he should say, “O the One who is known for His granting favor, O the First of all first ones, O the Last of all last ones, O the One who has strong power, O the One who grants sustenance to the destitute, O the most Merciful of all merciful ones. I have purchased myself from You with one- third of what I own. (With such payment) I pray to You, remove from me the evil of what I suffer from. You have power over all things.’””

5. Through the same chain of narrators as the previous Hadith, it is narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn Mahbub from al- Hassan ibn Salih who has said the following: “I heard abu ‘Abd Allah, say this. ‘One, for coming true of his wish, may take a proper Wudu’, perform two Rak‘at Salah (prayer) with complete Ruku‘ and sajdah. He then can sit and praises Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Glorious. He then can say, “Allahumma Salli ‘Ala Muhammad wa ‘Ali Muhammad (O Allah grant Muhammad and his family a compensation worthy of their serving Your cause).” Thereafter ask Allah for his needs, he has asked Him for needs in a time of a good chance for acceptance, in which case one is not deprived of coming true of his wish.’”

I was not able to get up. Banu Hashim gathered at night for burial, seeing me about to die. My mother was restless. Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, told her, ‘My aunt, climb on the house, expose your head under the sky, perform two Rak‘at Salah (prayer) and after Salam say, “O Allah, You give him to me as a gift. He was not anything. O Allah, I pray to You to give him to me as a gift on my own initiation so allow me to borrow him from You.’” She did as she was told and I regained consciousness and sat up straight. They called everyone for food (so they can fast the next day). It was Harisah (mashed meat and grain). They ate and I ate with them.’”

8. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad and abu Dawud from al-Husayn ibn SaTd from Fadalah ibn Ayyub from Mu‘awiyah ibn Wahab from Zurarah who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that one who wishes that his Lord make his wish come true should feed sixty destitute people as an act of charity, one sa‘ (three kilograms), by the sa‘ of the Holy Prophet, of food per person. At night during the last third of the night, take a shower and dress in minimum form, except that it must have a loincloth. Then he should perform two Rak‘at Salah (prayer). When placing his forehead on the ground in the last sajdah of the last Rak‘at, he should say that no one, other than Allah, deserves worship, speak of His greatness, His Holiness, His glory and then remember his sins and confess, as much as he remembers, name them (one by one), committing them then raise his head. When he places his forehead on the ground for the second sajdah, he should ask Allah, one hundred times, to choose for him the best, saying, ‘O Allah, I ask You to choose for me the best.’ Then pray to Allah for whatever he wants. Whenever in sajdah he should expose his knees to touch the ground and secure the loincloth from behind between his legs.”

Go back to your home, take a shower, perform two Rak‘at Salah (prayer), pray and say, “O the One who gave him to me as a gift when he was not anything, please renew Your gift for me,” then move him and do not tell anyone about it.’ She has said, ‘I followed the instruction and moved him and he began to cry.’”
