Dear viewers, my dear brothers and sisters. As-salamu 'alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. May Allah accept your a'amaals and all your deeds. Over half of the Holy month of Ramadhan is now finished and now we have the remaining, less than half remaining. Let us make sure we turn to Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala after all these days and for the remaining days to attain His Pleasure. Try to exhibit a change that comes from within. Try to increase in our understanding of our submission to Him, Subhana wa Ta'ala, our devotion to Allah, Subhana wa Ta' ala. We need to understand how to commit to Him, how to submit to Him Subhana wa Ta'ala.

As we have been discussing over the past few nights, I hope, InshaAllah, you've developed some understanding and appreciation of Surat ul-Fajr and the beauty and the wonders of Surat ul-Fajr. InshaAllah, it encourages some of the mu'minin to keep on reciting it, but more importantly even, to implement it's teachings. Last night, we spoke about the Adaab of Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala, when the Jahannam is brought forth and people get to see it, wa ayyadhu bi-Llah , how they start trembling, how they start shaking and then Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala says that the human will be saying 'I wish I had prepared myself for my life,' meaning that this is the true life, not the temporal life that we live in this dunya. So whenever we experience problems in this dunya, that's why we are recommended to say "Innaa li-Llaahi wa innaa ilaihi raaji'oon" (2:156). Surely to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. Because this dunya is only temporal. We belong to Allah and to Him we shall return. So we need to be always in the obedience of Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala.

Brothers and sisters if there is any act that we are committing, which is not in Allah's disobedience. If some of us are watching things that are haram or listening to things that are haram, if some of us for example, may not be wearing the hijab, if some of us for example, may have bad tempers, bad manners, if some of us have some arrogance, wa ayyadhu bi-Llah , some, we look down upon people.

Then let's pray to Allah during these coming nights of Qadr to bless us, to help us, to give us the success and the tawfiq for the obedience of Allah. Pray to Allah, ask Allah, say 'Ya Rabb.' Now we each know what are our shortcomings. We sometimes ask Allah for materialistic things, which is fine, it's great. Do ask Allah for increase in wealth, increase in position, for example, if you want to get a promotion, you want to succeed in your studies, et cetera, et cetera.

That's all great, ask Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala for every little and big things. But in addition, don't forget about asking Him for the Akhirah, asking Him to have the greatest of akhlaq and morality, the best of manners so that Ahlul Bayt would be pleased with us, so that, wa ayyadhu bi-Llah , we don't become like these ayaat we discussed last night or the previous day, where the enemies or wa ayyadhu bi-Llah, those who are disbelievers will be put in the severe punishment that none others will be punished like him, or will be put in great chains that none others will be put in such chains.wa ayyadhu bi-Llah .

Today, the ayat, the final ayat of Surat ul-Fajr and this will conclude InshaAllah, our discussion about this Surah. They more like encourage us, motivate us, inspire us for the obedience of Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala. Allah says in these last verses, 27 to 30 of Surat ul-Fajr. Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim. "Ya ayyatu an-nafsu ul-mutma'innah" (89:27), "Irji'ee ila Rabbika raadiyatan mardiyyah" (89:28). O soul, O self that is at peace, at peace. Return to your Lord pleased and pleasing.

Pleased, pleasing. Ya'ni, you are the pleased with what Allah has given you and you're pleasing to your Lord. We pray to Allah that we make us among, that He makes us among such people. "Fa adkhulee fee 'ibaadee" (89:29). Allah says 'So enter among my servants and enter my paradise. "Wa adkhulee jannati" (89:30). Ya Allah, make our self, a self that is mutma'inna. We read this Du'a in Ziyarah Aminu Allah. If you read Ziyarah Aminu Allah, which is Ziyarah of Imam Ali 'alayhi as-salam, Amir ul-Mu'minin as-salam Allahi 'alayh. It has these sentences, these lines, "Allahumma faj'al nafsi mutma'innatan bi qadarik, radiyatan bi qada'ik, mula'atan bi dhikrika wa du'a'ik, muhibbatan lisaffwati awliya'ik, mahbubatan fi ardhika wa sama'ik, and so on, so forth. So it's good to read these, this Ziyarahs, Ziyarah Aminu Allah, it has these Du'as. O soul that that is at peace and restful.

In Kitab ul-Kafi shareef, in a Hadith narrated by Sadir or Sudayr as-Sayrafi from Al-Imam Ja'far Al-Sadiq, salawat Allahi wa as-salamu alayhi, it says the following. He says, I asked Al-Imam Al-Sadiq 'alayhi as-salam, so Sudayr as-Sayrafi is asking Al-Imam Al-Sadiq 'alayhi as-salam. He says 'May I be sacrificed for you, O son of Rasul Allah, salla Allahu alayhi wa alihi wa sallam, is the believer forced to have his soul taken away?' Ya'ni, at the time of death when Malik-ul Mawt comes, does he force the believer to take his soul away? Listen to what the Imam 'alayhi as-salam, says.

Imam Al-Sadiq 'alayhi as-salam, says 'La, Wa Allah - No, I swear by Allah.' When the Angel of Death comes to take his soul, the mu'min would feel scared, he would be worried, jaza'a inda dhalik. Ya'ni, he says 'No, no.' He would be so scared. Now we have a Hadith as well that when this happens, a mu'min's tongue is held, he cannot speak. So that's why we don't feel that. We don't see that happening.

"Fa lawla idha balaghat il-hulqoom" (56:83). Allah says. 'When it arrives to the throat.' Because the Hadith says that's the soul finally starts leaving the body from the feet and it reaches to the throat. From here, wa ayyadhu bi-Llah, it goes. May Allah make us among the mu'minin InshaAllah, saliheen Ya Rabb, when that happens. "Fa lawla idha balaghat il-hulqoom" (56:83). So when it reaches the throat. "Wa antum heena'idhin tandhuroon" (56:84) . And you are watching, the family of this person who is dying, they're looking around him, they're seeing him. "Wa nahnu aqrabu ilaihi minkum wa laakin laa tubsiroon" (56:85). 'And We are closer to him than you, but you cannot see Us.' Do we see Malik-ul Mawt, when he enters into the room to take the soul of our beloved one, our beloved family member? How many times we were sitting by our family member, the one whom we like and we love? And his soul departs or her soul departs the body in front of us.

S o brothers and sisters, this reminds us this dunya is very temporal. He says, Imam Al-Sadiq 'alayhi as-salam, continues with the Hadith. The mu'min starts working worried when he sees Malik-ul Mawt coming, so Malik-ul Mawt comforts the believer. He says 'Ya Wali-Allah - O friend of Allah.' Ya'ni, you're a mu'min, you're a muttaqi, you're God-fearing. 'La tajza,' don't be worried, don't worry. 'Fa walladhee ba'atha Muhammadan salla Allahu alayhi wa alihi.' I swear by the One who sent Muhammad salla Allahu alayhi wa alihi wa sallam. Ya'ni, I swear by Allah, Who sent Rasul Allah salla Allahu alayhi wa alihi. 'La ana abarru bika wa ashfaqu 'alayka min waalidin raheem illaw hadharak.' I am more Compassionate with you, more Caring of you than if there was a loving father attending you right now. Ya'ni, if you had a loving parent to come with you now, how would he or she would take care of you? How he or she would comfort you? I am more Compassionate than them, I am more Loving than them.

Then he says, open your eyes and see. Now here, the eyes may not necessarily be this eyes, or maybe it is the eyes, he's seeing with his eyes, the mu'min, just before his death. Sometimes we see the eyes are kind of looking here, right, left. We can't speak to that mu'min at that time. But Amir ul-Mu'minin as-salamu Allahi 'alayhi, spoke. Amir ul-Mu'minin as-salamullahi 'alayhi, spoke and we'll see. He says the following. He says Malik-ul Mawt will tell to this mu'min or this believer 'Open your eyes.' So he will open his eyes and he will see in front of him. 'Wa yumaththalu lahu' and as if he sees the pictures or the image of Rasul Allah, salla Allahu alayhi wa alihi, and Amir ul-Mu'minin and Fatimah, and Hasan wal Husayn wal Al-A'imma 'alayhim us-salaam. They are your companions. InshaAllah, they will be our companions.

He says so he will open his eyes, the mu'min will open his eyes and he will see. 'Fa yundhur fa yunaadi ruhahu munadin min qibali Rabbi il-izza.' The believer will see and so somebody will call his soul from before the Lord of of honour, Ya'ni Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala will command the angels to take that soul. "Yaa ayyatuh an-nafs ul-mutma'inna" (89:27). 'O self that is peaceful.' The peaceful soul. Peaceful towards Muhammad and his family. Illah Muhammadin wa Ahli Bayti. "Irji'eee ilaa Rabbika" (89:28) bil Wilayah. Return to your Lord with the Wilayah of Muhammad wa ali Muhammad. Mardiyyah bi 'th-thawaab, you are pleasing, you're pleased with the reward. "Fadkhulee fee 'ibaadee" (89:29). Enter among my servants. And my servants here, ya'ni Muhammadan wa Ahlu Baytihi, wa Ahlu Baytihi, Muhammadan wa Ahla Baytihi salawat Allahi wa as-salamu alayhi ajma'een. "Wadkhulee jannati" (89:30). And enter my Paradise. At that moment, there is nothing more beloved to this mu'min, to the believer than the Malik-ul Mawt, the Angel of Death taking his soul and joining them.

In other words, for the mu'minin, Malik-ul Mawt would not take your soul, Ya mu'minin, until you give him permission to do so. And when you give him permission, how? Because you see, you see the Amir ul-Mu'minin, Rasul Allah salla Allahu 'alayhi wa'alihi, Fatimatu az-Zahra, Ahlul Bayt 'alayhim us-salaam, so you would want to join them in going to Jannah. You see your ajar, your thawaab. Amir ul-Mu'minin 'alayhi as-salam, on his deathbed, in his final moments, as we will be reading, InshaAllah, you will be listening to some of the majalis of the speakers. May Allah bless them all.

In his final moments, his forehead became sweaty. And he said. I heard the beloved Rasul Allah salla Allahu 'alayhi wa'alihi , saying that when the mu'min's time comes, his forehead becomes sweaty and that is because of the time to meet his Lord. And he turns to his family members around him who are crying for his loss. He says 'Don't cry. Here I am seeing Rasul Allah salla Allahu 'alayhi wa'alihi , in front of me and Fatimah 'alayha as-salam, and the Angels of Allah have decorated Paradise for my arrival.' So Amir ul-Mu'minin was able to speak and say of what he is seeing. Some of the mu'minin cannot do that. But Amir ul-Mu'minin as-salaamu Allahi 'alayhi, the Commander of the Faithful, he is able. So this is what's going to happen, brothers and sisters. We ask Allah to make us InshaAllah among such individuals.

Then in another Hadith, a man by the name of Dawud ibn Farkat in Ta'weel ul-Ayaat, it is mentioned that Imam Al-Sadiq 'alayhi as-salam, said 'Iqrau surat al-fajri fee faraa idhikum wa nawaafilikum.' Read Surat ul-Fajr in your obligatory and recommended prayers, for it is the Surah of Al-Husayn, the son of Ali 'alayhi as-salam, or 'alayhim us-salam, and turned towards, it means love it. 'Wa arghabu feeha rahimakumu Allah.' May Allah have mercy on you. Means try to read it, enjoy it, enjoy the Surah, Surat ul-Fajr. Take time in it.

So one of the people sitting, and he listened to this Hadith, to the Imam as-salamu Allahi 'alayhi, his name was Abu Osama. So Abu Osama asked, he said 'How is this Surah made for Imam Al-Husayn exclusively? Only for Imam al-Husayn 'alayhi as-salam? Imam Al-Sadiq replied, he said 'Don't you hear, O restful soul, O peaceful soul? "Ya ayyatu an-nafsul mutma'inna " (89:27). O peaceful self, return to your Lord pleased, pleasing and enter "Fadkhulee fee 'ibaadee" (89:29). And enter among my servants and entere into My Paradise. 'Inna ma Husayn ibn Ali 'alayhi us-salam.' He is referring to Al-Husayn Ibn Ali. 'Fa huwa dhun nafs il-mutma'innah.' So he is the one who has the peaceful soul, the peaceful self. 'Ar-raadhiyya al-mardhiyyah.' The one is pleased with Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala and Allah will be pleasing him. 'Wa ashabihi, wa ashabuhu.' and his companions of Aali Muhammad salawat Allahi 'alayhim. 'Ar-raadhuna ani Allahi yawm al-Qiyamati wa huwa raadhil anhum.' who will be pleased with Allah's reward on the Day of judgement and He will be pleased with them.

And he says, Now, listen to this, brothers and sisters. 'Wa haadhi as-Surah nazalat fil Husayn ibn Aliyyin 'alayhi as-salam wa shi'atih.' And this Surah was revealed about Al-Imam Al-Husayn 'alayhi as-salam, the son of Ali 'alayhim us-salam, and his Shi'a. Ya'ni, you Mu'minin, you Mu'minaat. 'Wa shi'atu Aali Muhammadin khassa.' And the Shi'a of Aali Muhammad salla Allahu alayhi wa alihi wa sallam, exclusive. Whomever becomes addicted to the recitation of Surat ul-Fajr, admana, ya'ni constantly recites it. And that's why I recommend it to the mu'minin, at least recite it in Salat-ul Fajr at least. Try to recite it regularly. 'Man admana qiraa'ata al-Fajri kana ma'a al-Husayni 'alayhi as-salam.' You will be with Imam Al-Husayn 'alayhi as-salam, in his ranks in Paradise. "Inna Allaha 'Azezun Hakeem" (2:220). Surely Allah is all Honourabe, all Wise.

Now, of course, this is when we implement the teachings of Surat ul-Fajr. As we read in Surat ul-Fajr, as we read over the past few nights, if you remember, Allah is teaching us to be driven towards Him, to attaining His Pleasure, to obey Him, not to be attracted so much to dunya, to be reminded of the Akhirah. So we always turn to Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala and think about Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala to attain the pleasure of Allah.

My brothers and sisters, let us think about what's important. Let us try to be good people, virtuous people, kind people, compassionate, merciful empathetic, ya'ni, you think about others. These qualities would attain you great success, in addition to the Salaat and the Siyaam and the actions, the good deeds that we do, the Ziyarah of Imam Al-Husayn 'alayhi as-salam, to the best of our abilities. Our daily interactions, if we have done qadha salaat, qadha fast, let us attend to them or at least write them in your Will so that Allah remembers us. Let us be compassionate, help, because everything will be recognized.

Allah says in the last two verses of Surat Al-Zalzalah, InshaAllah, you have them memorized. What are the last two verses of Surat Al-Zalzalah? "Idha zulzilat il-ardu zilzalaha" (99:1). What is the last two verses? "Faman iya'mal mithqala dharratin khairan iyarah"(99:7). "Wa man iy'amal mithqala dharratin sharran iyarah"(99:7-8). Anyone who does an atom like of deeds, weight of deeds, good deeds, he will see it. And anyone who does an atom weight of bad deeds, he will see it, wa ayyadhu bi-Llah.

It is said Sheikh, Sayed Abdul Husayn Dastaghaybi, ridhwan ul-Allahi Ta'ala alayhi, one if the Ulema, ridhwan ul-Allahi Ta'ala alayhi, he died as a shaheed in the early days of the Islamic revolution. He writes in one of his books, he says that there was a man who was dying, he was dying, and they noticed him saying 'I wish it was bigger'. And then later on, he says 'I wish it was longer'. And then later on, they heard him say I 'I wish it was the new one.'

Now, people around him, they thought this man is hallucinating, you know, he's dying and now he's basically hallucinating. But then Subhana Allah, for whatever reason, Allah cured this individual. Allah delayed his death, he didn't die. That's why never give up hope from Allah's Mercy. You know, sometimes I hear people, they call me or they they see me, they say, 'Oh, so and so is going to die. That's it, khalaas, the doctor said there's no hope. So we are preparing for the funeral services.' I said 'That's fine, but never give up hope from Allah's Mercy. The doctors said there is no hope, but He always, His Gate is always open, there is always Hope in Allah.' So sometimes I hear them, you know, unfortunately, they reluctantly, they say 'Yeah, yeah, we know that.' Ya'ni, wa ayyadhu bi-Llah, as if what I'm saying is not true. Always have hope in Allah's Mercy. To the last second, we have hope. That last second may be Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala will delay.

So when somebody is dying, recite Surat Yaseen for him, recite the Surat ul-Fatiha, Ar-Rahman, Al-Waqiah, Surat Al-Mulk, "Tabaaraka alladhee biyadihi il-mulku" (67:1). Recite Du'a Al-Adeela, recite Ziyarat Ashura and ask Allah to give him a long life InshaAllah, to cure him through the barakah of Ziyarat Ashura with the 100 la'an and the 100 salaam. So recite the full Ziyarat Ashura. Ziyarat Ashura, followed by, with the 100 la'an and the 100 salaam, then do the short Du'a after that and the sujood. You pray 2 rakah salaat and then read Du'a Alqamah afterwards. Have some mu'minin reading this and InshaAllah, there will be some lengthening, extension of this person's life.

So this person, he didn't die. He got up, after a few days. Subhana Allah, Allah gave him his health back and he lived for some time. So people came to ask him. They said when we were sitting around you as you were dying, you were saying some things. Were you hallucinating or did they really have some meaning? He said 'No, they had meaning.' They said 'So what are they?' He said 'Do you remember what I was saying?' They said 'Yes.' Some of them said 'Yes, you said I wish it was bigger.' He says 'As I was dying, I saw Jahannam, wa ayyadhu bi-Llah, coming close to me.'

As I mentioned last night "Wa jeee'a yawma idhim bi jahannnam" (89:23). On that day, Jahannam comes forward. And in another ayah, in another ayah, Allah says "Wa uzlifatil Jannatu li 'l-muttaqeen" (26:90). Ya'ni, Jannah is brought forth or close to the believers. Ya'ni, SubhanaAllah, the mu'minin, Jannah will be brought forward. The muttaqeen, the muttaqeen, they will have Jannah coming to them and wa ayyadhu bi-Llah, other people will have Jahannam coming close to them, wa ayyadhu bi-Llah. May Allah make us among the muttaqeen InshaAllah so that Jannah will come close to us, with Muhammad wa Aali Muhammad 'alayhim us-salam.

So he said 'I saw Jahannam coming close to me. Then I was scared, I really got frightened. Then I saw a piece of bread coming between me and Jahannam.' So a piece of bread, how big is a piece of bread? Let's say, for example, it's this big. So this is the distance that came between me and Jahannam. He says, 'One day I bought two pieces of bread. On my way home, I saw a poor person who was hungry. I felt sorry for that poor person. I said 'You know, I have two pieces of bread, one is enough for me.' So I take a piece of bread and I give it to this poor person. That same piece of bread, the same one. I saw it. It came as a barrier between me and the Hellfire. 'That fire, wa ayyadhu bi-Llah, that same piece of bread. Ya'ni Allah says 'Whomever does an atom weight of good deeds, he will see it.' You will see your good deeds. This man saw the bread.

Then he says 'So that's why I was saying I hope it was bigger. I wish it was bigger.' Ya'ni, InshaAllah, it was this big of a piece of bread, so huge piece of bread. But you know, unfortunately this is was the length of it. So I prayed, I would hope I wish it was bigger so it would keep me further away from the fire. Then he says 'I started stepping back a few steps from the fire.' He says 'What are these steps?' He says 'One day I had a person come to me and knock on my door and it was the time of afternoon when I had just come from work. I was tired, I wanted to sleep. You know, some places they sleep in the afternoon, they rest. He says 'I came to rest. I heard someone knocking on my door. I opened the door. I saw a person. He told me that I have some issue with your neighbour. Your neighbour, I have some issue with him, some some business or some issue or some problem. Can you please, because he's your neighbour, you know him well, can you please come with me and talk to him? So that hopefully my issue gets resolved, this problem gets resolved.'

He says 'I was tired, but then I thought to myself 'Here look, here let me help this man' so I said, 'Ok, just wait.' I went, I changed and I came, I walked with him a few steps because homes were close to each other. So my neighbour. So, what how many steps? Let's say for example, 20 steps, 30 steps, whatever many steps. I walked with him to fulfil his need, the need of a mu'min, to fulfil the hajjah of a mu'min. He says the same steps, same number, whatever, let's say, for example, 30 steps, I started taking them away from the fire. So I started saying I wish it was longer. I wish I had walked a bit further.'

Then he says 'One day, I bought a new abaya, you know, like a new abaya. I had one, but that one that I had, had a hole in it. It was a hole, so it didn't look nice. So I went and bought a new abaya, ok? When I bought the new one, as I was walking, I saw a poor person. I thought, 'Let me give him the old abaya, let me give him the old one.' So I keep the new one and give the old one. And, you know, sometimes these abayas, like they would be made up of wool, so they would really be comfortable for providing heat, for example. Somebody who is poor, they can really feel good with it, you know, find comfort in it. So I gave him the old abaya, the old cloak, and I kept the new one. He says 'When I was dying at that moment.' So after having the bread as a barrier between me and the fire, then taking the steps away from the fire. Now he says 'I saw that same abaya that I gave to that person, that poor person, the same one. It came and it became like a barrier between me and the fire.' So they put like a curtain. Except what was the problem? The abaya had what? A hole. So I could still see the fire. So I said 'I wish I gave, it was the new one, not the old one. I wish I had given the new one.'

This is reminding us of the ayah, say in Surat Ale-Imran, Allah says ' Say that you will not achieve that virtue or the Pleasure of Allah, al-birr, unless you spend of what you like, tu hibboon, things that you like, (3:92). So let's invest time. If time is precious for you, invest time in helping others. If it is, if it is money, invest money. If it is, if you have a status, then use your status to go to helping people, brothers and sisters.

Let us make sure that this month of Ramadhan, we turn to Allah. We ask Him for forgiveness, pray to become better people, one's whom Imam Al-Mahdi, ajj'alallahu ta'ala farajahu shareef , will be pleased with. We want to be with Ahlul Bayt 'alayhim us-salam. We don't want to be away from them. We want to be among their companions, among their supporters. We want to be among those whom Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala is pleased with. We want to be among those who when they put us in our kabr, we don't have to worry about anything.

In a long hadith, narrated by a man called Musa Ibn Sayaar, from Imam Ar-Ridha 'alayhi as-salam. He says Imam Ar-Ridha attended a funeral once, I saw him attending a funeral, close to Nishapoor, on his way to Khurasaan. Well, people didn't recognize him, but I saw him, I recognized him and he was carrying the Janazah from the front and the back and so on, so forth, until they put this person by the Kabr. He said, I saw Imam Ar-Ridha 'alayhi as-salam, coming to this Mayyit, next to his Kabr. You know how you put the Mayyit next to the Kabr, and then you take them down to the Kabr. So they put the Mayyit down and they still have not put him. Imam Ar-Ridha 'alayhi as-salam came, put his holy hand on the chest of this man. And he said 'O so and so, when the Angels come to you, don't be afraid, for you are of our supporters. From this moment onwards, you have nothing to fear and worry about.'

And then they buried this Marhum. I asked Imam Ar-Ridha, he says, 'alayhi as-salam, 'You've never been to this place. How do you know this man is of your Shi'a, your followers?' He says 'Ya Musa Ibn Sayaar, don't you know that all the deeds of our Shi'a are presented to us every morning and every night? We know you. We know the Shi'a. We know the Shi'a by their names and the name of their fathers and their families.'

Wouldn't it be great if the Imam of our time, ajj'alallahu ta'ala farajahu shareef , comes and puts his holy hand on our chest when we are about to be put in the Kabr and he says 'Laa khawfun 'alaykum walaa untum tahzanoon, walaa hum yahzanoon.' That you don't have to worry, there is no fear for you nor any grief. It's InshaAllah, doable with the Mercy of Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala and the blessings of Ahlul Bayt alayhim us-salam, if we put in the effort to go close to them an inch and they will come a foot. If we put in a centimetre, they will put a metre and further, even greater. This is just an analogy.

Let's raise our hands in the Du'a, brothers and sisters. InshaAllah, you've benefited from the interpretation of Surat ul-Fajr. I hope you gained some knowledge about this wonderful Surah and you will be implementing this Surah in your lives so that you will be among the companions of Imam Al-Husayn 'alayhi as-salam. When you implement the teachings of this Surah in your life, you'll be with Ahlul Bayt 'alayhim us-salam. Just reading it by words, it's not going to be enough but read it with the niyyah of becoming among the Shi'a and the followers of Ahlul Bayt 'alayhim us-salam.

Raise your hands in the Du'a. 'A'udhu billahi min al-Shaytan al-rajim. Bismillah Al-Rahman Al-Rahim. “Amman yujibu al-mudtarra idha da‘ahu wa yakshifu us-su’u”. “Amman yujibu al-mudtarra idha da‘ahu wa yakshifu us-su’u”. “Amman yujibu al-mudtarra idha da‘ahu wa yakshifu us-su’u”. “Amman yujibu al-mudtarra idha da‘ahu wa yakshifu us-su’u”. “Amman yujibu al-mudtarra idha da‘ahu wa yakshifu us-su’u” (27:62).

Allahumma shifanna soo'. Ya Allah. Allahumma inna nas'aluka wa nad'ook bismika al'-adheem al-a'dham al-'a'azzil ajjal il-akrami. 10 times together Ya Allah, Ya Allah, Ya Allah, Ya Allah, Ya Allah, Ya Allah, Ya Allah, Ya Allah, Ya Allah, Ya Allah. O Allah, we ask you by Fatimah alayha as-salam, and her father, and her husband, and her children, Ya Allah. Alleviate all difficulty and pains away from us, Ya Allah, bi Fatimata wa abiha wa ba'aliha wa baniha wa sirr il-mustawd'a feeha nak shifanna soo'a Ya Allah. Allahumma maghfirli il-mu'minina wa al-mu'minaat, Allahumma dha hawaija al-mu'minina wa al-mu'minaat, Allahumma shaafi wa aafi jamee'an maghdha al-mu'minina wa al-mu'minaat. Oh Allah end this pandemic and help keep the mu'minin reunited again together Ya Allah. Alleviate humanity all and relieve them from this difficulty and pain. O Allah, all those who asked us and requested us to remember them in our Du'a, fulfil their needs and hajaat.

Ya Allah. O Allah, "Rabbana ghfirlee wa liwaalidaiya wa li 'l-mu'mineena yawma yaqoomu al-hisaab"(14:41). " Rabbi arhamhumaa kamaa rabbayaanee sagheera" (17:24). Ijzeehima bi 'l-ihsaani ihsaana, wa bi as-sayyi'atih ghufraana. "Rabbi j'alnee muqeema as-Salaati wa min dhurriyyati. Rabbanaa wa taqabbal du'aa'" (14:40). Alahumma ajjil li waliyyika al-faraj, waj'alnaa min shi'ati wa ansaari wa al-mushtash hadeena bayna yaday.

Everyone together: Allahumma kulli waliyyika al-Hujjat ibni al-Hasan, salawatuka 'alayhi wa 'ala aba'ih. Fi hadhihi as-sa'ati, wa fi kulli sa’ah. Waliyyan wa hafidhan, wa qa'idan, wa nasiran, wa daleelan, wa 'aynah, hatta tuskinahu ardhaka tau'a, wa tumattiahu fiha, tawilah. Bi rahmatika ya Arham ar-Rahimeen. [Du'a al-Faraj].

For the fulfilment of all the hajaat, for the qawaa idhil hawaaij shifaa il-mardha kishfee hadhih il-ghumma an haadhih il-mawaa ta'jeel faraj, Mawlana Sahibu al-Asri wa az-Zaman wa ilaa warham waa tina wa amwaat il-mu'minina wa al-mu'minaat, raheema Allahu man yakraoo Surah al-Mubaraka al-Fatiha ma'as salawaat 'ala Muhammad wa 'aali Muhammad. Allahuma salli 'ala Muhammad wa 'aali Muhammad. Wa as-salamu alaykum, wa rahmat Ullahi, wa barakatuh.
