The Method of Seeking the Best from Imam al‑Baqir (as)

    قَالَ الإِمَامُ البَاقِرُ عَليهِ السَلامْ:

    يَقُولُ مَا اسْتَخَارَ اللهَ عَبْدٌ قَطٌّ مِائَةَ مَرَّةٍ إِلاَّ رُمِيَ بِخِيَرَةِ الأَمْرَيْنِ يَقُولُ: ((أَللهُمَّ عَالِمَ الْغَيْبِ وَ الشَّهَادَةِ إِنْ كَانَ أَمْرُ كَذَا وَ كَذَا خَيْراً لِلأَمْرِ دُنْيَايَ وَ عَاجِلِ أَمْرِي وَ آجِلِهِ فَيَسِّرْهُ لِي وَ افْتَحْ لِي بابَهُ وَ رَضِّنِي فِيهِ بِقَضَائِكَ.))

al‑Imam al‑Baqir (as), said: "There is no servant, who seeks the best from Allah one hundred times by saying the following except that Allah guides him to one of the two paths”. 4

    أللَّهُمَّ عَالِمَ الْغَيْبِ وَ الشَّهَادَةِ إِنْ كَانَ أَمْرُ كَذَا وَ كَذَا خَيْراً لِلأَمْرِ دُنْيَايَ وَ آخِرَتِي وَ عَاجِلِ أَمْرِي وَ آجِلِهِ فَيَسِّرْهُ لِي وَ افْتَحْ لِي بَابَهُ وَ رَضِّني فِيهِ بِقَضَائِكَ.

"O' Allah the knower of the hidden and apparent. If in this action there is good for the affairs of my world and my hereafter, then make it easy for me and open up the doors of it for me and make my pleasure be in that which You have decreed. "
