Pearl of Wisdom

'Among the definitions of the custodianship of an Imam whose obedience is committing mistakes, errors, intentional wrongs, and from all sins, petty and grave. He never makes mistakes or sin, and neither is he ever diverted from the issues that endanger the religion by any sort of diversion. He is the most knowledgeable of all people about what Allah has made lawful and unlawful, His obligations, recommendations and rulings. He stands needless of the entire world whilst they all need him. And he is the most generous and courageous of men.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Bihar al-Anwar, v. 25, p. 164

Question : #134 Category: Dua / Supplications
Subject: Dua Faraj and Imam Mahdi
Question: Is it true that Dua Faraj was narrated by Imam Mahdi initially?
Answer: Salaam,

There is a supplication called dua faraj which starts by Allahumah kun li-waliyik. This dua is probably narrated from Imam Ali bin Muhammad (a), although the name of the Imam is not mentioned in Bihar al-Anwar.

There is another dua called dua faraj of Imam Zaman (a) in Mafatih al-Jinan which starts by Allahuma azuma al-Bala'. This supplication, according to Shaykh Abbas Qumi, is narrated from Imam Mahdi (a).
