- I told to Imam Baqir (A.S): “What is the meaning of “truly, Ibrahim was awwah and patient”? He replied: “Awwah means (the one who is) praying (to) and wailing (for God) a lot.””
- “Two people, who have acted alike, enter the heaven, but one of them sees the other one in a higher place. Then, he says: O’ Lord! How come has he a superior place in comparison to me while we acted alike? God the Almighty replies: “because he asked Me (whatever he needed) and you did not do that”.
- “The most knowledgeable person to God is the one who asks more from Him”
- “Whoever prays a lot, the angels say: this voice is familiar (to us) and this is the prayer which is accepted and this is the need which is provided”
- “There is no servant who goes to a land and opens their hands and praises God and prays, unless God fills the land with his rewards, whether it is vast or tiny”
- If you knew god the way you should’ve known, Mountains definitely will be moved by your prayers.
- Crying out of fear of god is the key to his mercy, it’s a sign for his acceptance and it’s a door to answering (your prayers)
- Pray to god and believe in his answeres. But understand that god wont accept prays from an unwitting oblivious heart.
A Prayer To Gain Profits In Business
O, Muhammad! Whosoever wishes that his enterprises and businesses become profitable, should recite this Prayer, any time he is buying or selling something:
يَا مُرْبِيَ نَفَقَاتِ أَهْلِ التَّقْوَى وَ مُضَاعِفَهَا وَ يَا سَائِقَ الْاَرْزَاقِ سَحّاً إِلَى الْمَخْلُوقِينَ وَ يَا مُفَضِّلَنَا بِالْاَرْزَاقِ بَعْضَنَا عَلَى بَعْض سُقْنِي، وَ وَجِّهْنِي فِي تِجَارَتِي هَذِهِ إِلَى وَجْهِ غِنَى عَاصِم شَكُور آخُذُهُ بِحُسْنِ شُكْر لِتَنْفَعَنِي بِهِ وَ تَنْفَعُ بِهِ مِنِّي، يَا مُرْبِحَ تِجَارَاتِ الْعَالَمِينَ بِطَاعَتِهِ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَ آلِ مُحَمَّد وَ سُقْ لِي فِي تِجَارَتِي هَذِهِ رِزْقاً تَرْزُقُنِي فِيهِ حُسْنَ الصُّنْعِ فِيمَا ابْتَلَيْتَنِي بِهِ وَ تَمْنَعُنِي فِيهِ مِنَ الطُّغْيَانِ وَ الْقُنُوطِ يَا خَيْرَ نَاشِر رِزْقَهُ لاَ تُشْمِتْ بِي بِرَدِّكَ عَلَيَّ دُعَائِي بِالْخُسْرَانِ عَدُوّاً لِي، وَ أَسْعِدْنِي بِطَلِبَتِي مِنْكَ وَبِدُعَائِي إِيَّاكَ يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ.
