Du'a for the Month of Rajab
In His name, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
The following dua is recommended after the daily obligatory prayers. The dua, according to shaykh Abbas Qummi in MafateeHul Jinaan has been taught by Imam Jafar as-Sadiq (a).
My apologies for not using the standard form of tranliteration. My experience has shown that the method may be okay for academic use but using of diacritical marks look confusing to many.
Key to understanding the transliteration:
Double a, e, and o indicate the long vowels. Letter Haa (from the throat) represented by capital H, e.g. muHammad. The sound of ayn is indicated by , e.g. Abbas. Letter Saad indicated by capital S. However, the sound of Saad is tranliterated as Sw in the salawat. Letter Dhaad (which follows Saad in the Arabic alphabet) indicated by Dh. Letter Taa (which follows Dhaad in the alphabet) is indicated as capital T. Tajweed rules of recitation have been considered here and there.
Transliteration of the Dua.
Allahumma Swalli alaa muHammadinw wa-aali muHammad.
Yaa man arjoohoo likulli khayr
Wa-aamanu sakhaTahoo inda kulli sharr
Yaa manyuTil-katheera bil-qaleel
Yaa manyuTee man sa-alah
Yaa manyuTee man lam yas-alhu wa-mal-lam yarifhu taHannunam minhu waraHmah
Atinee bimasalatee iyyaak

WaSrif annee bimas-alatee iyyaak
Jameea sharrid-dunyaa washarril aakhirah

(Then the 6th Imam held his beard in his left hand and gave a movement to the index finger in his right hand saying :) Yaa dhaljalaali walikraam
Harrim shaybatee alan-naar.
Translation of the Du'a:
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
O Allah, bless Muhammad and his household.
O He from whom I can hope for all goodness
And I am safe from His anger at every evil.
O He who gives a lot in exchange of a little.
O He who gives to one who asks Him.
O He who gives to one who does not ask Him and does not know Him,
Out of His affection and mercy.
Give me, for my request is only to You alone,
All the good of this world and all the good of the Hereafter.
Keep away from me, for my request is only to You alone,
All the evil of this world and the evil of the Hereafter.
For indeed it is not diminishing what is given by You.
Increase (for) me from Your bounty, O The Generous.
(Then the 6th Imam held his beard in his left hand and gave a movement to the index finger in his right hand saying :)
O The Sublime and The Distinguished,
O The Bountiful and The Magnanimous,
O the Gracious and the Mighty,
Save my grey hairs from the fire (of Hell).
Do not forget me in your supplications.
