Syedna al-Mu’ayyad’s do’a in Times of Despair

04 April 2023

PDF DOWNLOAD: English | Arabic

Syedna al-Mu’ayyad al-Shirazi was the Babul-Abwaab, the highest of the spiritual ranks (hudood), of the 18th Imam al-Mustansir Billah SA. He is one of the most preeminent scholars of the knowledge and ‘ilm of Aale Mohammed SA. It was through him that this ‘ilm was transferred to the Du’aat Mutlaqeen in Yemen.

Syedna al-Mu’ayyad’s life was filled with trials and tribulations, yet he remained steadfast in his belief in the Imam and in his conviction to serve him. He composed many munajaats and do’as supplicating to Allah Ta’ala and beseeching his succor. The do’as are compiled together in a hafti from which we pray particularly in the last ten days of Shehrullah al-Mo’azzam. Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA prayed from a hafti of Syedna al-Mu’ayyad’s do’as which was transcribed by hand by Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin (Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA wrote the Bismillah and first page of the first do’a). Syedna Burhanuddin RA also used this particular hafti for many years.

In one of the do’as in this collection, there are abyaat of munajaat which Syedna Taher Saifuddin recited every year in Lailatul Qadar along with the short do’a passage that followed the verses. Syedna Burhanuddin RA also recited this do’a many times. Following their tradition Syedna Qutbuddin also recited this do’a in Ramadan al-Mo’azzam this year.

The abyaat and the last part of the do’a are presented on Fatemidawat.com with English translation. An image of the do’a hafti transcribed by Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin TUS is presented above.Abyaat and do’a with Arabic text and English translation PDF presented on Fatemidawat.com.
