On the auspicious occasion of the Birth Anniversary of the beloved daughter of holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP), Mistress of the Women of World Sayyedah Fatimah Az-Zahraa (PBUH), on 20 Jamadi II, the sixth month of Islamic calendar, a few supplications are presented here.

Some of these supplications are taught by her to the companions of holy Prophet (PBUH&HP) while some other were taught to her by the Chief of Prophets, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP).

Umm ul-A`immah – mother of infallible imams – Fatimah Az-Zahra (PBUH) taught the following supplication to Salman Al-Farsi, about whom the holy Prophet (PBUH&HP) said: ‘Salman minna Ahlal Bayt’ (Salman is from our Ahlul Bayt), and said to him:

“If it pleases you not to be inflicted with fever as long as you live in this world, then read these words, which my father, Muhammad (PBUH&HP), taught me and I say every morning and evening:

In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, Most Merciful

In the Name of Allah the light;

In the Name of Allah the light of light;

In the Name of Allah, light upon light;

In the Name of Allah, the planner of affairs;

In the Name of Allah, Who created light from light;


Revealed light upon the Turr;

By a decree inscribed;

In a scroll unfolded,

According to a decree fore-ordained;

Unto a Learned Prophet;

Praise be to Allah, Who is Known with Might;

Whose Glory is established;

Who is praised during times of prosperity and infliction;

And may Allah s grace be upon our Master,


And his purified progeny.”

Salman, holy Prophet (PBUH&HP)’s companion, later said: “By Allah, I have taught this supplication to more than a thousand souls in Mecca and Medina who were inflicted with fever, and they were all relieved by the will of Allah.”

Ibn Ta’oos wrote in his book Muhaj Ad-Da’awat, that Allah’s Messenger (PBUH&HP) taught Fatimah Az-Zahraa (PBUH) the following supplication:

“O Allah, Our Lord and the Lord of Everything;

(He) Who revealed Tawrat, Injeel and Furqan (Quran);

(He) Who causes the seed-grain and the date-stone to split and sprout;

I seek refuge in You from every beast that you shall seize by its forelock

Surely You are the First, where nothing has succeeded (You);

And the last, where nothing shall come after (You);

You are the Evident, there is nothing more Manifest than You;

And the Eminent, there is nothing more Eminent than You;

Send your grace upon Muhammad and his Ahlul-Bayt.

May Peace be upon them;

And settle my debts for me;

Make me free from poverty,

And decree easy for me all my affairs.

O You! Most Merciful of all.”
