Dua e Sanam-e-Quraish

The prayer of Sanam-e-Quraish (the idols of Quraish) is a very authentic prayer of Amir-ul-Momaneen Hazrat Ali bin Abi Talib asws and so has been recognised by all renowned Shia historians.It has been narrated by Abdullah bin Abbas that one night I went to the masjid-e-Nabbivi to offer my late-night prayers and saw Amir-ul-Momaneen a.s offering his supplications. I decided to sit in a corner and listen to Mola Ali asws’s recitation of Quran and prayers. After completing Salat, mola asws recited supplications which I had never heard before. Later, I approached Imam Ali asws and said may I be your ransom, please tell me more about those prayers which I have never heard before.Mola Ali asws then replied, it was ‘Dua-e-Sanam-e-Quraish’ and added I swear to Allah swt. who owns the lives of Mohammed asws and Ali asws, whoever would recite this prayer will get an extra-ordinary reward from the Lord; similar to assisting Prophet Mohammeds.a.w..during the battles of ‘Ohad and Tabooq’ and would achieve the martyred status in the presence of His prophet asws. And the reward of 100 Hajj and Umara as an associate of Prophet Mohammed asws as well as ‘Sawab’ of 1000 months of fasting. In addition, one will be on the side of Rasool Allah asws and Aimah Masomeen asws on the day of judgement and Allah swt. will forgive all his/her sins, despite the fact if his/her committed sins are equivalent to the stars in the sky, grains of sand in the wilderness and leaves of all trees. Also the reciter will be saved from punishment in the grave and a window from heaven will be installed in his/her grave.



InShaAllah, prayers will be rewarded, through the sanctity of the supplication, and Oh! Ibne Abbas if any of our friends is, in particular, engulfed by hardship, he/she would surely find a refuge through recitation of this prayer.
