Salaat Imam-e-Zamaan

Salaamun Alaykum all: see below, my apologies if the Arabic has not
transferred over correctly! You will find the complete dua at 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:


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

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


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

salle a'laa muhammadinw wa aale Muhammad.


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.
Allah, bless Muhammad and the Progeny of Muhammad.
