May the peace, mercy and blessings of Allah be upon you.
May you be blessed on the occurrence of these blessed days, which bestowed al-Hussain and the progeny of al-Hussain upon us, may the prayers of Allah be upon them all. May peace be upon al-Hussain, the children of al-Hussain and the companions of al-Hussain who were martyred with al-Hussain, may the prayers of Allah be upon him. And may the curse of Allah be upon Yazid and his followers until the Day of Resurrection.
Narrated in al-Misbah: The authorized point of contact of Imam al-Askari, Abu al-Qasim bin Alaa al-Hamadani, learned that Imam al-Hussain pbuh was born on a Thursday, on the 3rd of Shaban. So fast this day and supplicate with this dua:
O Allah, I beseech you in the name of the one born on this day, the one promised martyrdom before the beginning of his lifetime and before his birth, the one for whom the heavens and all their inhabitants wept , as did the earth and those living on it before his feet stepped on it, the mourned slain one, the master of the Family, the one who shall be given victory on the Day of Return, the one who was compensated for being slain with the favor that the Imams are from his offspring, and compensated in that the soil of his grave carries cure, and in that he will triumph when he returns, and in that the successors after their Riser and his occultation are from his progeny, so they shall take revenge, retaliate, please the Omnipotent and be the finest supporters. May Allah’s prayers be upon them as long as night and day succeed one another. O Allah, I thus beg You in the name of them and implore You with the imploring of a confessing sinful one who has done evil to himself with his violations, past and present. He beseeches You for Your protection until he reaches his grave. O Allah, send blessings upon Muhammad and his progeny, and gather us with his group, and allow us to dwell in the House of Honor and the abode of residence with him. O Allah, as You have conferred upon us the honor of our recognition of him, confer upon us the honor of being near him, bestow upon us the bliss of accompanying him and enjoying a rank close to him, and include us with those who submit to him and those who invoke Your blessings upon him whenever they mention him, and upon all his successors and selected ones, whom You defined as twelve, the luminous stars and the proofs upon all mankind. O Allah, grant us on this day the best of bounties, respond to all our prayers on this day, just as You gifted al-Hussain to his grandfather Muhammad, just as the angel Futrus sought refuge in his cradle, so we are seeking refuge in his tomb after him, as we are witnessing his soil and expecting his return. Amen, O Lord of the worlds.
