Common Duas for the Last 10 Nights of Month of Ramadhan
1- In ‘al-Kafi’, Shaykh al-Kulayniy has reported Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (a.s) to recite:
I seek the protection of the Majesty of Your Honorable Face
against that the month of Ramadhan elapses
Or dawn puts an end to this night
but there is still an offense or a sin for which I am still liable and for which You will punish me.
2- In ’al-Balad al-Amin’, al-Kaf`amiy has mentioned that Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (a.s) used to say the following:
O Allah: (please) help us fulfill the right of the past days of the month of Ramadhan,
And forgive us our shortcoming during it,
And receive it from us with acceptance,
And do not blame us for our extravegence in our affairs,
And include us with those upon whom mercy is had,
And do not include us with those deprived (of the awards of Ramadhan).
3- In ‘Iqbal al-A`mal’ Sayyid Ibn Tawus has narrated on the authority of Ibn Abi-`Umayr on the authority of Murazim that Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (a.s) used to say the following at each of the last ten nights of Ramadhan:
O Allah: You have said in Your revealed Book:
"The month of Ramadhan is that in which the Qur'an was revealed,
a guidance to men and clear proofs of the guidance and the distinction."
You have thus rendered great the sanctity of this month of Ramadhan,
Because You revealed the Qur'an in it,
And You decided the Grand Night to be in this month exclusively,
And You made it better than one thousand months.
O Allah: the days of the month of Ramadhan are elapsing,
And its nights are also elapsing,
While I have become in the state that You, O my God, know better than I do,
And You can count it more precisely than all the created beings.
So, I beseech You in the name of that by which Your favorite angels,
And Your missioned Prophets,
And Your righteous servants have besought You,
That You may bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,
And You may release me from Hellfire,
And allow me to enter Paradise, by Your mercy,
And confer upon me with Your pardon and Your generosity,
And accept my seeking of nearness to You,
And respond to my prayer,
And bestow upon me with security on the Day of Dread
Against all the horrors that You have prepared for the Resurrection Day.
O my God: I seek the protection of Your Noble Face,
And Your Great Majesty,
Against that the days and nights of the month of Ramadhan elapse,
While there is still a sin or an offense for which You may punish me,
Or a wrongdoing for which You want to chastise me; and You have not yet forgiven them for me,
O my Master; O my Master; O my Master;
I beseech You, O He save Whom there is no god,
Indeed, there is no god save You,
If You have been pleased with me in this month,
Then (please) increase Your satisfaction with me;
And if You have not been pleased with me,
Then (please) be satisfied with me from this moment,
O the most Merciful of all those who show mercy.
O Allah; O the One and Only; O the Besought of all;
O He Who begets not, nor is He begotten,
And none is like Him
4- Repeat the following invocation as many times as possible:
O He Who made the iron pliant for (Prophet) David, peace be upon him;
O He Who took off the harm and calamity that afflict (Prophet) Job, peace be upon him;
O He Who relieved the sorrow of (Prophet) Jacob, peace be upon him;
O He Who removed the grief of (Prophet) Joseph, peace be upon him:
(Please do) send blessings upon Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,
As exactly as You are worthy of blessing them all,
And (please) do to me that which befits You,
And do not do to me that which I deserve.
5- Recite the following supplication:
O Allah: (please) bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,
And decide for me forbearance that blocks the door to ignorance against me,
And guidance that You confer upon me against any item of straying off,
And affluence that blocks the door to all poverty against me,
And power due to which You repel any weakness from me,
And might with which You honor me against all humiliation,
And sublimity through which You exalt me against all humbleness,
And security through which You protect me against any fear,
And well-being by which You cover me against any ailment,
And knowledge due to which You open before me all certitude,
And certitude due to which You remove from me any dubiosity,
And prayer through which You expand Your response to me at this very night and at this very hour,
This very hour, this very hour, this very hour, O the All-generous,
And apprehension due to which You spread over me all items of mercy,
And shelter due to which You intervene between my sins and me,
So that I shall succeed in the view of the Infallible ones with You,
Out of Your mercy, O the most Merciful of all those who show mercy.
6- Shaykh al-Kulayni, in ‘al-Kafi’, has narrated, that the following supplication, which is also narrated in ‘al-Muqni`ah’ and ‘al-Misbah’,should be said for last 10 nights
O (One) who causes the night to pass into the day, and the day to pass into the night. O (One) who brings forth the living from the dead, and brings forth the dead from the living. O the Provider of sustenance for whoever He pleases, without measure. O Allah, O Beneficent, O Allah, O Merciful. O Allah, O Allah, O Allah, You have the most beautiful names, the highest examples, the grandeur, the bounties.
I beseech You to, bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, and place my name, in this night, among the fortunate, and my soul among the martyrs, let my good deeds be (written) in the 'Illiyyin (Book of the virtuous), and my evil deeds be forgiven. (And I beseech You to ) grant me a certainty which gives joy to my heart, and a faith which drives doubt away from me, and make me pleased with what You have granted me.
(And I beseech You to) Give us good in this world, and good in the Hereafter, and save us from the punishment of the burning fire.(HQ 2:201) (And I beseech You to) grant me in it (Laylatul Qadr) Your remembrance, and Your gratitude, and desire for (pleasing) You, turning (to You for repentance), and success, for all that You have granted Muhammad and his family, peace be on him and on them.
