A full-length text containing dozens of supplications from the Holy Qur’an that can be recited during the Qunut in Salat, instructions on how to perform some special prayers, and information about more than a hundred names of Allah and their significance in supplication.
1 Ehdenas Seraatal Mustaqeem. Seraatal Lazeena Ana’mta A’layhim Ghayril Maghzoobe A’layhim Wa Laz-Zaalleen.
“Keep us on the right path. The path of those upon whom Thou hast bestowed favors. Not (the path) of those upon whom Thy wrath is brought down, nor of those who go astray.”
(Surah al-Fatehah, 6-7)
No matter how much wisdom you have, always beseech Allah to guide you in the right path, whatever the field of enquiry or activity you are taking after. Seek Allah’s help to keep you very close to the ways and means of the righteous and the pious servants of Allah (the Holy Prophet and the Ahlul Bayt), the surest road to success in this world, and to keep you away from the dishonest methods and hypocritical attitude of the astray devils (the followers of the accursed Shaytan), although they may appear profitable for a little while, but finally bring you ruin and destruction in the end.
2 Rabbanaa Taqabbal Minnaa Innaka Antas Samee-u’l A’leem.
“…Our Lord! accept from us; surely Thou art the Hearing, the Knowing.” (Surah al-Baqara, 2:127)
Prophet Ibrahim (a.s.) and Prophet Ismail (a.s.), while building the holy Ka’-bah prayed to Allah for the successful completion of their project. Putting in their best efforts does not make your labour fruitful, because there are many unknown and uncontrollable forces working in the universe that can bring disappointment if Allah, who not only knows but has total control over all things and events, does not help you. So always invoke Allah by reciting this verse in the traditions of His prophets, whenever you take up a job, which has not been prohibited. Also recite this verse at the end of any good deed- after praying any wajib or sunnah salat, or when you have read whole or part of the Holy Qur’an, in a single sitting, or after attending a majlis (a religious gathering for mentioning the merits of the Holy Prophet and his Ahl ul Bayt). Recitation of this verse is also recommended for seeking fulfilment of any legitimate desires.
