Resources: Duas, Namaz and Ziyarats of Imam Mahdi (as)

Duas, Namaz and Ziyarats are an integral part of the teachings of the Holy Prophet of Islam (sawa) and the Ahle Bayt (as). For each of these, one can supplicate in His own language and his own words. However it is recommended to turn to Allah through the words of Holy Prophet (sawa) and the Imams (as). Indeed they are the chosen servants of Allah, those through whom he chose to reach His message to mankind.

Such is the depth and volume of supplications, namaz and ziyarats that it would take a lifetime for an individual to recite them completely. Our scholars have collected these gems in their books like Mohajjud Dawaat and Mafatihul Jinan. We also have collections of Duas from every Imam like Sahifa-e-Sajjadiyyah (supplications from Imam Sajjad), Sahifa-e-Alawiya (Imam Ali), Sahifa-e-Fatemiyyah (Hazrat Zahra) and even Sahifa-e-Mahdiviyyah (Imam Mahdi).

In this section, we will bring forth those duas, namaz and ziyarats which has come for and from Imam Mahdi (as). The list is not comprehensive and additions will be made to this list from time to time.

One should keep in mind that reciting these duas or offering these namaz or sending salutations to Ahle Bayt (as) through the words of ziyarat are a means of attaining proximity to them.
