Seeking the return of our Imam (ATF)

Salaamun Alaykum all: see below, my apologies if the Arabic has not transferred over correctly! You will find the complete dua at www.duas.org should you need it Insha Allah.

Bismillah al Rahmaan al Raheem

"Make lots of prayers for the hastening of relief, for in it is your relief" - Letter from Imam Zamaan (ATF)

Grand Ayatollah Sayed M. Taqi al Modarresi has called on Shias all over the world to ask for the reappearance of the Awaited Savior by performing the special
Salaat Imam-e-Zamaan (see below for instructions) on the eve of the 23rd of the month of Ramadhan, the Night of Destiny, which is inextricably linked to
the Imam of our time.

We call on all believers to take part in this global campaign and perform this brief Salaat on this special night, as that could hasten the Dawn of Humanity
and fill the earth with justice and end all oppression.

Over a million pilgrims are expected to take part in this campaign in the holy shrine of Imam Hussein and perform the prayer under the glorious dome of
the Imam, with millions of others in various Middle Eastern cities across the region, and we ask believers around the world to join them.

How to perform the special prayer of Imam Zamaan:

It is composed of 2 Rak'ats, each with Surat al Fateha, until one reaches verse: 5: "Iyyaka naA'budu wa iyyaka nastaA'een", then one repeats this verse
100 times, then completes the Surah. After Surat al Fateha, Surat al Ekhlas is recited once.

The second Rak'ah is done in the same manner.

Following the end of the prayer, the following supplication is recited:

Arabic:

اللهم عظم البلاء وبرح الخفاء وانكشف الغطاء وضاقت الأرض ومنعت السماء وإليك يارب المشتكى وعليك المعول في الشدة والرخاء

اللهم صل على محمد وآل محمد الذين أمرتنا بطاعتهم وعجل اللهم فرجهم بقائمهم وأظهر إعزازه

يا محمد يا علي‪، يا علي يا محمد، أكفياني فإنكما كافياي، يا محمد يا علي، يا علي يا محمد، انصراني فإنكما ناصراي، يا محمد يا علي، يا علي يا محمد، احفظاني فإنكما
حافظاي

يا مولاي يا صاحب الزمان، يا مولاي يا صاحب الزمان، الغوث الغوث الغوث، أدركني أدركني أدركني، الأمان الأمان الأمان

Transliteration:

Bismillaahir Rahmanir Raheem Ilaahi a'zomal balaa wa barehal khafa wan kashefal ghita wan qata-ar rajaa wa zaaqatil arzo moneatis samaa wa antal musta-aano
wa ilaikal mushtakaa wa a'laikal mu-awwalo fishshiddate war rekha. Allaahumma salle a'laa muhammadinw wa aale Muhammad ulil amril lazeena farazta a'laina
ta atahum wa arraftana be zaaleka manzilatohum fa farriz a'nna be haqqehim farajan a'ajelan qareeba kalamhil basare a-huwa aqrab. Yaa muhammado yaa a'li
yaa a'liyyo yaa Muhammad ikfiyaani fa inna kuma kaafiyaan naaseraan wan suraani fa innakuma naaseraan yaa maulana yaa sahebaz zamaan al ghauth al ghauth
al ghauth ad rikni ad rikni ad rikni as saa-a as saa- as saa-a al a'jal al a'jal al a'jal yaa arhamrraahemeen be haqqe muhammadinw wa aalehit taahereen.
Allaahumma
salle a'laa muhammadinw wa aale Muhammad.

Translation:

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. My God, terrible was the calamity, and its evil consequences are visible, the covering has been removed,
(all) hopes have been cut off, the (plentiful) earth has shrunk (with very little to spare), the heavenly blessings have been withheld. Thou alone can
help, we refer our grief and sorrow to Thee, we have full faith in Thee, in the time of distress, as well as in good fortune. O Allah send blessings on
Muhammad and on the progeny of Muhammad, whom we must obey as per Thy command, through which we become aware of their rank and status, and let there be
joy after sorrow for us, for their sake, right away, in the twinkle of an eye, more rapidly than that. O Muhammad! O Ali! O Ali! O Muhammad! Suffice me!
Because both of you provide sufficiently. And help me! For both of you help and protect. O our master! O the living Imam! Refuge! Refuge! Refuge! Reach
me! Reach me! Reach me! This hour! This hour! This hour! Do hurry! Do hurry! Do hurry! O the Most Merciful. For the sake of Muhammad and his purified Progeny.
O
Allah, bless Muhammad and the Progeny of Muhammad.

From the cowardice which shrinks from new truth;

From the laxness that is content with half-truth;

From the arrogance that thinks it knows all truth;

O God of Truth deliver us!
