A Gift from Imam Husayn (a.s.) – Dua taught to his son
On the day of ‘Aashura, when Imam Husayn(as) came to bid farewell to his family members, he held the hand of his sick son, the 4th Imam Ali ibn al-Husayn(as) and pressed it against his chest. He said:
“O my son! I am teaching you you a Dua which you should remember. It was taught by the angel Jibrail to my grandfather, the Messenger of Allah, who passed it to my mother Fatimah. Whenever you have a special need or are faced with any calamity or crisis, or are inflicted with any grief or hardship, then recite this Dua!:”
بِحَقِّ يس وَ الْقُرْآنِ الْحَكِيمِ وَ بِحَقِّ طه وَ الْقُرْآنِ الْعَظِيمِ
يَا مَنْ يَقْدِرُ عَلَى حَوَائِجِ السَّائِلِينَ يَا مَنْ يَعْلَمُ مَا فِي الضَّمِيرِ يَا مُنَفِّساً عَنِ الْمَكْرُوبِينَ
يَا مُفَرِّجاً عَنِ الْمَغْمُومِينَ
يَا رَاحِمَ الشَّيْخِ الْكَبِيرِ يَا رَازِقَ الطِّفْلِ الصَّغِيرِ
يَا مَنْ لَا يَحْتَاجُ إِلَى التَّفْسِيرِ
