Supplications the Prophet taught to Fatima

Supplications the Prophet taught to Fatima


The Prophet (p.b.u.h) himself brought up and educated his daughter Fatima, the principal of all women of the worlds. He fed her with all kinds of piety and planted in her all excellent qualities and high morals that made her a unique and unequaled example for every Muslim woman. From that which the Prophet (p.b.u.h) fed Fatima (SA) with were noble supplications that made her close to Allah all the time by them. The following are some of those supplications:
First Supplication

“O Allah the Noblest Mentioned One, and the most Ancient One in glory and might, O Allah the Merciful One for every seeker of mercy, and the Refuge of every resorter to You, O Allah Who have pity on every grieved one who complains his grief and sorrow to You, O Allah the best One from Whom favor is asked and You give it secretly, O Allah Whom the angels that are shining with light fear, I ask You by the Names that the carriers of Your Throne call upon You by, and those around Your Throne in Your light glorify You by them for the fear of Your punishment, and by the Names that Gabriel, Michael, and Israfel call upon You by, that You may respond to me, relieve my grief, and keep my sins concealed.

O You Who order of the Cry in His creatures and soon they will be resurrected in the al-Sahira,[1] I ask (You) by that Name by which You give life to the rotten bones, that You give life to my heart, dilate my chest, and improve my affairs.

O You Who have singled out the everlastingness for Yourself and created for Your creation death and life, O You Whose doing is just a saying, Whose saying is a commandment, and Whose commandment is executed on whomever You like, I ask You by the Name by which Your friend (Abraham) had called upon You when he was thrown into fire and You responded to him and said, (O fire, be coolness and peace for Abraham),[2] and the Name by which Moses had called upon You from the right side of the mountain, and You responded to him, and the Name by which You had relieved the distress of Ayyoub (Job), and accepted the repentance of Dawud (David), and subjugated for Solomon the wind to blow, and (subjugated) the Devils, and taught him the language of birds, and the Name by which You had granted to Zachariah Yahya, and created Jesus from the Holy Spirit with no father, and the Name by which You had created the Throne and the Divine Seat, and the Name by which You had created the Angels, and the Name by which You had created the jinn and men, and the Name by which You had created the whole creation and everything You wanted, and the name by which You had the power over everything, I ask You be these Names that You may give to me what I ask You for, and satisfy my needs.”[3]

Second Supplication:

The Prophet (p.b.u.h) taught Fatima (SA) this du’a to be recited at affliction: 

“O You the Aware of the unseen and the secrets in the inners, O You the Obeyed the All-Knowing, O Allah, O Allah, O Allah, the defeater of the parties for Muhammad, the Plotter against the Pharaoh for Moses, the Savior of Jesus from the hands of the unjust, the Rescuer of the people of Noah from drowning, the Merciful to Your servant Jacob, the Reliever of Job’s distress, the Savior of Thun-Noon (Jonah) from darks, the Doer of every goodness, the Guide to every goodness, the Enjoiner on every goodness, the Creator of goodness, and the One of goodness, You are Allah; I turn to You in what I know and You are the Knower of the unseen, I ask You to have blessings on Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad.”[4]

Third Supplication:

From the supplications that the Prophet (p.b.u.h) taught to his daughter Fatima (SA) is this one to repel sleeplessness. Imam Ali narrated that once Fatima (SA) complained to the messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h) of sleeplessness and he said to her to supplicate Allah with this du’a:

“O You the Satisfier of hungry abdomens, the Coverer of naked bodies, the Calmer of beating nerves, the Putting to sleep of sleepless eyes, calm down my beating nerves, and permit to my eye a soon sleeping.”[5]

Fourth Supplication:

The Prophet (p.b.u.h) taught this supplication to Fatima (SA) to recite it when she wanted to go into the mosque:
“O Allah, forgive me my sins and open to me the doors of Your favor.”

And to recite, when going out of the mosque:
“O Allah, forgive me my sins and open to me the doors of Your mercy.”[6]
