3rd of Shaban - Birth of Imam Hussain E-mail

Abu’l-Qasim ibn `Al’ al-Hamadaniy, the representative of Imam al-Hasan al-`Askariy (a.s), received a document telling that our master, Grandson of the Holy Prophet (saws),Imam al-Husayn ibn `Ali (a.s), was born on the third of Sha`ban; therefore, you should observe fasting on this day and recite the following supplication:


O Allah: I beseech You in the name of the one born on this day, the one promised with martyrdom before the beginning of his life and before his birth, the heavens and all their inhabitants wept for him;and so did the earth and those living one it; before his feet stepped on it;the mourned slain one;and the master of the Family (of Prophet hood);

and the one who shall be backed with victory on the Day of Return; the one whom has been awarded with the favor of the Imams’ being from his offspring as recompensation of his being slain; and the one awarded with the favor of the soil of his grave carrying cure;and the one awarded with the favor that he will be triumphing when he will be returned;

and also the Prophet’s Successors from his offspring will be returned after the advent of their Rising Imam and after his occultation,so that they shall take revenge,and they shall retaliate,and they shall please the Omnipotent Lord,and they shall be the best supporters.

May Allah’s blessings be perpetually upon them whenever night and day succeed each other.

O Allah: I thus beg You in the name of them;and I implore You with the imploration of a sinful one who confesses of his guilt, and who has done evil to himself,due to his violations—the past and the present.

He thus beseeches You for protection from You up to the place of his grave.

O Allah: (please) send blessings upon Muhammad and his Offspring,and include us with his group (on the Resurrection Day)and allow us to dwell in the House of Honor with him,and in the abode of residence.

O Allah: as You have conferred upon us with the honor of our recognition of him, (please) confer upon us with the honor of being near to him,and bestow upon us with the bliss of accompanying him and enjoying a close rank to him,and include us with those who submit to him totally,and those who pray (You) for sending blessings upon him whenever they mention him,and also upon all his Successors and Selected Ones,whom are defined by You as twelve persons,being the luminous stars,and the Arguments against all humankind.

O Allah: and (please) grant us on this day the best of grants,and make all our prayers on this day responded,in the same way as You gifted al-Husayn to Muhammad: his grandfather,and in the same way as the angels Futrus sought refuge with his (i.e. al-Husayn) cradle we are thus seeking refuge with his tomb after him (i.e. his martyrdom)as we are witnessing the soil of him and expecting his return.

Respond to us; O the Lord of the worlds.


After that, you may recite the Du`a' al-Husayn, which is the last supplication uttered by Imam al-Husayn (a.s) when his enemies surrounded him in large numbers on the Day of `Ashura (the tenth of Muharram, AH 61):

اللّهُمَّ أَنْتَ مُتَعَالي الْمَكَانِ،

O Allah: You are verily the Elevated in position,

عَظِيمُ الْجَبَرُوتِ،

the Magnificent in omnipotence,

وَأَرْغَبُ إلَيْكَ فَقِيراً،

and I desire for You for I am in want of You;

وَأَفْزَعُ إلَيْكَ خَائِفاً،

and I resort to You for I am terrified;

وَأَبْكِي إلَيْكَ مَكْرُوباً،

and I weep before You for I am distressed;

وَأَسْتَعِينُ بِكَ ضَعِيفاً،

and I seek Your aid for I am weak;

وَأَتَوَكَّلُ عَلَيْكَ كَافِياً،

and I depend upon You for I trust in none save You;

احْكُمْ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَ قَوْمِنَا بِالْحَقِّ،

(please do) decide between our people and us with the truth,

فَإنَّهُمْ غَرُّونَا وَخَدَعُونَا

for they have deceived us, cheated us,

وَخَذَلُونَا وَغَدَرُوَا بِنَا وَقَتَلُونَا،

disappointed us, betrayed us, and killed us.

وَنَحْنُ عِتْرَةُ نَبِيِّكَ

We are verily the progeny of Your Prophet,

وَوَلَدُ حَبِيبِكَ

and the sons of Your beloved one,

مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَبْدِاللّهِ

namely Muhammad ibn `Abdull¡h,

الَّذِي اصْطَفَيْتَهُ بِالرِّسَالَةِ

whom You have chosen for the Divine Mission

وَائْتَمَنْتَهُ عَلَى وَحْيِكَ،

and for keeping Your Revelation.

فَاجْعَلْ لَنَا مِنْ أَمْرِنَا فَرَجاً وَمَخْرَجاً

So, (please so) prepare a way out and a relief for us,

بِرَحْمَتِكَ يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ.

out of Your mercy; O the most Merciful of all those who show mercy.
