Dua for 3rd Shaban

Its recommended to recite this dua on the 3rd of Shaban, as Imam Husain was born on this day.

اَللّٰھُمَّ إِنِّی أَسْأَ لُکَ بِحَقِّ الْمَوْلُودِ فِی ھذَا الْیَوْمِ
O Allah, I beseech You in the name of the one born on this day,
الْمَوْعُودِ بِشَهَادَتِهِ قَبْلَ ٱسْتِهْلالِهِ وَوِلادَتِهِ
the one promised with martyrdom before the beginning of his lifetime and before his birth,
بَکَتْہُ السَّماءُ وَمَنْ فِيهَا
the heavens and all their inhabitants wept for him
وَالْاَرْضُ وَمَنْ عَلَيْهَا
and so did the earth and those living one it
وَلَمَّا یَطَأْ لابَتَيْهَا
before his feet stepped on it,
قَتِیلِ الْعَبْرَةِ
the mourned slain one,
وَسَیِّدِ الْاُسْرَةِ
the master of the Family (of Prophethood),
الْمَمْدُودِ بِالنُّصْرَةِ یَوْمَ الْکَرَّةِ
the one who shall be backed with victory on the Day of Return,
الْمُعَوَّضِ مِنْ قَتْلِهِ أَنَّ الْاَئِمَّةَ مِنْ نَسْلِهِ
the one whom has been awarded the favor of the Imams’ being from his offspring as recompense of his being slain,
وَالشِّفاءَ فِی تُرْبَتِهِ
the favor of the soil of his grave carrying cure,
وَالْفَوْزَ مَعَهُ فِی أَ وْبَتِهِ
the one awarded the favor that he will be triumphing when he will be returned
وَالْاَوْصِیاءَ مِنْ عِتْرَتِهِ
and the Prophet’s Successors from his offspring will be returned
بَعْدَ قَائِمِهِمْ وَغَيْبَتِهِ
after the advent of their Rising Imam and after his occultation
حَتّی یُدْرِکُوا الْاَوْتارَ
so that they shall take revenge,
وَیَثْأَرُوا الثَّارَ
وَیُرْضُوا الْجَبَّارَ
please the Omnipotent Lord,
وَیَکُونُوا خَیْرَ أَنْصارٍ
and be the best supporters.
صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهِمْ مَعَ ٱخْتِلافِ ٱللَّيْلِ وَٱلنَّهَارِ
May Allah’s blessings be perpetually upon them as long as night and day succeed each other.
اَللَّهُمَّ فَبِحَقِّهِمْ إِلَیْکَ أَ تَوَسَّلُ
O Allah, I thus beg You in the name of them
وَأَسْأَلُ سُؤالَ مُقْتَرِفٍ مُعْتَرِفٍ
and implore You with the imploring of a sinful one who confesses of his sin,
مُسِیءٍ إِلی نَفْسِهِ
and who has done evil to himself
مِمَّا فَرَّطَ فِی يَوْمِهِ وَأَ مْسِهِ
due to his violations—the past and the present.
یَسْأَ لُکَ الْعِصْمَةَ إِلی مَحَلِّ رَمْسِهِ
He thus beseeches You for Your protection up to the place of his grave.
اَللّٰھُمَّ فَصَلِّ عَلی مُحَمَّدٍ وَعِتْرَتِهِ
O Allah, (please) send blessings to Muhammad and his Offspring,
وَاحْشُرْنا فِی زُمْرَتِهِ
include us with his group (on the Resurrection Day),
وَبَوّئْنا مَعَهُ دارَالْکَرامَةِ،
and allow us to dwell in the House of Honor with him
وَمَحَلَّ الْاِقامَةِ۔
and in the abode of residence.
اَللّٰھُمَّ وَکَما أَکْرَمْتَنا بِمَعْرِفَتِهِ
O Allah, as You have conferred upon us with the honor of our recognition of him,
فَأَکْرِمْنا بِزُلْفَتِهِ
so (please) confer upon us with the honor of being near to him,
وَارْزُقْنا مُرَافَقَتَهُ وَسَابِقَتَهُ
bestow upon us with the bliss of accompanying him and enjoying a close rank to him
وَاجْعَلْنا مِمَّنْ یُسَلِّمُ لِاِمْرِهِ
and include us with those who submit to him totally
وَیُکْثِرُ الصَّلاةَ عَلَيْهِ عِنْدَ ذِكْرِهِ
and those who invoke Your blessings upon him whenever they mention him
وَعَلی جَمِیعِ أَ وْصِيَائِهِ
and upon all his Successors
وَأَھْلِ أَصْفِيَائِهِ
and the selected Ones,
الْمَمْدُودِینَ مِنْکَ بِالْعَدَدِ الاثْنَی عَشَرَ
whom are defined by You as twelve persons
النُّجُومِ الزُّھَرِ
being the luminous stars,
وَالْحُجَجِ عَلی جَمِیعِ الْبَشَرِ
and the Arguments against all humankind.
اَللَّهُمَّ وَهَبْ لَنَا فِي هٰذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ خَيْرَ مَوْهِبَةٍ
O Allah, and (please) grant us on this day the best of grants,
وَأَ نْجِحْ لَنا فِيهِ کُلَّ طَلِبَةٍ
make all our prayers on this day responded,
کَما وَھَبْتَ الْحُسَیْنَ لُِمحَمَّدٍ جَدِّهِ
just as You gifted al-Husayn to Muhammad, his grandfather,
وَعاذَ فُطْرُسُ بِمَهْدِهِ،
just as the angel Fitrus sought refuge with his cradle,
فَنَحْنُ عَائِذُونَ بِقَبْرِهِ مِنْ بَعْدِهِ
we are thus seeking refuge with his tomb after him (i.e. his martyrdom),
نَشْهَدُ تُرْبَتَهُ وَنَنْتَظِرُ أَ وْبَتَهُ
as we are witnessing the soil of him and expecting his return.
آمِینَ رَبَّ الْعالَمِینَ
Respond to us, O Lord of the worlds.
