A Gift from Imam Husain (AS) to his son

On the 10th day of Muharram, known as the day of ‘Aashura, in the year 61 A.H. when Imam Abu ‘Abdillahil Hussein (as) came into the tent to bid farewell to his family members, he held the hand of his sick son, Ali ibn al-Hussein (as) and pressed it against his chest. He (as) then said, “O son! I am teaching you a dua’ which you should remember. Angel Jibrael taught it to my grandfather the messenger of Allah who passed it to my mother Fatima. Whenever you have a special need or are faced with any calamity or crises, or are inflicted with any grief or hardship, then recite the following supplication”:

بِحَقِّ يس
By the truth of Yaseen
وَ الْقُرْآنِ الْحَكِيمِ
and fulfill for me…(mention your wishes)
وَ بِحَقِّ طه
And for the sake of Taa-haa
وَ الْقُرْآنِ الْعَظِيمِ
and the great Quran
يَا مَنْ يَقْدِرُ عَلَى حَوَائِجِ السَّائِلِينَ
O He Who is able to fulfill the desires of those ask.
يَا مَنْ يَعْلَمُ مَا فِي الضَّمِيرِ
O He Who knows what is in the heart.
يَا مُنَفِّساً عَنِ الْمَكْرُوبِينَ
O He Who banishes sorrow from the sorrowful.
يَا مُفَرِّجاً عَنِ الْمَغْمُومِينَ
O He Who dispels grief from those who grieve.
يَا رَاحِمَ الشَّيْخِ الْكَبِيرِ
O He Who is merciful to old men.
يَا رَازِقَ الطِّفْلِ الصَّغِيرِ
O He Who provides for infants.
يَا مَنْ لَا يَحْتَاجُ إِلَى التَّفْسِيرِ
O He Who needs not to be explained.
صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
Send blessings upon Muhammad and his progeny
وَ افْعَلْ بِي…
and the Quran full of wisdom
