Du'a for the Twelfth Imam (a)

This is a Du'a for the protection of the 12th Imam al-Mahdi (as). It is recommended that believers recite it often during the ghaybat of the Imam.

In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful

O Allah, bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad.

O Allah, be,

for Your representative,

the Hujjat (proof), son of Al-­Hasan,

Your blessings be on him and his forefathers,

in this hour and in every hour,

a guardian, a protector, a leader,

a helper, a proof, and an eye.

until You make him live on the earth,

in obedience (to You),

and cause him to live in it for a long time.

O One who directs all the affairs,

O One who will raise those who are in the graves,

O One who makes the rivers flow,

O One who softened the iron for Dawood,

Bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad,

and do for me . . . (ask for your wishes),

in this night, this night.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

اللهم صل على محمد وال محمد

اللهم كُن لوليّك الحُجة بن الحسن

صلوتك عليه وعلى ابائه

في هذه الساعة وفي كُل الساعة

وليّا وحافظاً وقائداً

وناصراً ودليلاً وعيناً

حتى تُسكنه ارضك طوعاً

وتُمتعه يها طويلاً

يا مدبر الأمور يا باعث من في القبور

يا مُجري البحور

يا مُليّن الحديد لداود

صلى على محمد وال محمد

وافعل بي ...الليلة الليلة (حاجات)
