1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ تَقُولُ فِي الْعَشْرِ الأَوَاخِرِ مِنْ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ فِي كُلِّ لَيْلَةٍ أَعُوذُ بِجَلالِ وَجْهِكَ الْكَرِيمِ أَنْ يَنْقَضِيَ عَنِّي شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ أَوْ يَطْلُعَ الْفَجْرُ مِنْ لَيْلَتِي هَذِهِ وَلَكَ قِبَلِي ذَنْبٌ أَوْ تَبِعَةٌ تُعَذِّبُنِي عَلَيْهِ.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from certain individuals of our people who has said the following: “Abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that during the last ten nights of the month of Ramadan, you should say the following prayer. ‘O Allah, I seek refuge with the glory of Your honorable face against the condition in which the month of Ramadan will pass or this night will dawn while I may have committed sins or such deeds for which I will deserve your punishment.’”

2. Ahmad ibn Muhammad has narrated from Ali ibn al-Husayn from Muhammad ibn ‘Isa from Ayyub ibn Yaqtin or others from ’A’immah, recipients of divine supreme covenant, who have said the following: “During the first night of the last ten nights of the month of Ramadan, recite this prayer. ‘O the One, (You have the power) to allow the night to penetrate into the day and the day to penetrate into the night. (You are) the One who brings out the living from the dead and brings the dead out of the living. O Provider of sustenance to whomever He wants without keeping any account. O Allah, the Beneficent, O Allah, O Merciful, O Allah, O Allah, O Allah, You have all the beautiful names, the most high examples, the greatness and bounties. I appeal before You to grant salawat (favors and compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to your cause). I appeal before You to list my name in this night with the people of salvation, my spirit with the martyrs, my good deeds in ‘Illiyin (high position), and forgive my sins. O Allah, grant me a certainty that can remain in my heart, and a belief that can remove my doubts. O Allah, make me happy with what You have granted me for my share. Grant me good in this world and in the next life, and protect me against the burning fire. O Allah, grant me in this night the opportunity to speak of You, to thank You, be interested to come to You with repentance, and grant me the kind of good opportunity with which You granted success to Muhammad and Ale (family of) Muhammad, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause.’” “During the second night say this prayer. ‘O the One who separates the day from the night and then we are in the dark. O the One (it is You) who draws the sun in its place by his measures. O (Allah You are) Majestic, O all knowing, O the One who has measured the distance of journey of the moon until it seems like an old twig. O light of lights, O aim of all interests, O provider of all bounties, O Allah, O Beneficent, O Allah, O Holy, O the One, O the One only, O the single One, O Allah, O Allah, O Allah, You possess all beautiful names. I appeal before You to grant salawat (favors and compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause) . . . read to the end the prayer mentioned above.’” “During the third night say the following prayer. ‘O Lord of the night of destiny, (it is You) who has made it better than one thousand months.

O Allah, I appeal before You, in the case of whatever You decide and measure of the inevitable issues of the matters of wisdom, during the night of destiny, which does not change or alter, to grant me long life, increased sustenance, and take me in the service of Your religion and do not replace me with others.’”

6. Al-Husayn ibn Muhammad has narrated from Ahmad ibn Ishaq from Sa‘dan ibn Muslim from abu Basir who has said the following: “Abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that to say farewell to the month of Ramadan say this. ‘O Allah, You have said in Your book, “The month of Ramadan is that when the Holy Quran was revealed.” This month of Ramadan has ended. If there are still sins on me that You have not forgiven or want to punish me for or scale and measure me thereby, I appeal before Your honorable face, and through Your complete words, before the dawn of this night and ending of this month, to forgive me for such sins. You are the most Merciful of all merciful ones. ‘O Allah, all praise belongs to You because of all of Your exalted attributes, the first and the last of them. All praise belongs to You because of such attributes that You have mentioned about yourself and about which praising creatures, the assiduous ones who are counted (to be among your friends), have spoken. (They are) those who respect the deed of speaking of You and thanking You, those whom You helped to observe and fulfill Your rights of all of Your creatures of the angels close to You, the prophets, the messengers and all kinds of creatures speaking of Your glory, of the beings of the worlds. You deserve all praise for bringing the month of Ramadan to an end while we enjoy your bounties, the share of the sustenance (from You), your favors and all apparent generosity. For this reason You deserve the ultimate praise, forever, endlessly, constantly, eternally, through all times that never end throughout eternity. Majestic is your glory. You have helped us during this month until we completed its fasting, salat (prayer), and whatever good deeds we could do or thanks we could express or speak of You. O Allah, accept it from us in the best manner of Your acceptance, consideration, pardoning, overlooking, forgiveness, and the reality of Your pleasure so that You grant us success with all good things desired and with best gifts bestowed, and protect us against all frightening matters, attracted afflictions or committed sins. ‘O Allah, I appeal before You through the greatest matters by which any of Your creatures have appealed before You, of Your honorable names, glorious praise, special prayers, to grant salawat (favors and compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause). Please make this month of Ramadan the best month of Ramadan that has ever passed on us from the time You sent us to this world. Make it a blessing in matters of safety of my religion, salvation of my soul and the realization of my wishes. Accept its intercession for my wishes, in the completion of bounties upon me, the repelling of wickedness from me, and my achievement of the dress of good health in it. Make me one of those who experience the blessing of the night of destiny that You have made better than a thousand months, in matters of great reward and honorable treasures, good manners of thanksgiving, long life and continued ease and comfort.’ ‘O Allah, I appeal before You through Your mercy, Your benevolence, Your pardoning, Your bounties, Your majesty, Your ever existing favors and generosity: do not make this the last month of Ramadan for us so that we may experience it in future in the best of conditions. Help us to recognize its new moon along with those who look for it and recognize its importance. Make it possible for me in good health, delightful bounties, the vast range of Your mercy, and the best of Your shares. O Lord, no one is my Lord besides You. I pray to You so this will not be my last farewell to it or the last occasion. Grant me the opportunity to experience it in the future, with a vast range of bounties and best hopes and to live before You with the best form of loyalty; You listen all prayers. ‘O Allah, listen to my prayers, be kind to me in my appeal, humble before You in my destitute condition, placing my trust in You while I am submitted before You. I do not have any hope for success, or good health, any honor, or the ability to reach anywhere without You and help from You. (O Allah), grant me the opportunity, Your praise is majestic and Your name is Holy, to experience the month of Ramadan in good health and safe from all difficulties, obstacles and all forms of misfortunes. All praise belongs to Allah for His helping us in fasting and worshipping up to the last of its nights during this month.”’
