3rd Sha'aban- Imam Hussain (as) Birth

According to Imam Hasan bin Ali Al Askaree (A.S.) it is highly desirable to observe fast today and recite the following dua’a:

O my Allah I beseech Thee in the name of he who was born today, to whom (Thou) promised martyrdom before he gave light (to the world) like a new moon on his birth; the heavens and the earth and those dwelling therein fell into the silence of remorse when he set foot in this world, the harassed grief-stricken head ofs as closely connected strong group of familiar friends of people who will win victory on the day the final attack (on the usurpers and tyrants) will be launched—an equivalent recompense for his martyrdom; his direct descendants are the Holy Imams (Guide—Leaders); the soil of his resting abode provides effective help, a sure remedy; he shall attain his end alongwith his successors from among his descendants, when their “Qaa—im” (Living Imam) shall come back and take hold of the persecutors and cheaters, put an end to vengeful stupid wars, and thus fulfill the task the Omnipotent has entrusted to them, and be the best helpers; blessings of Allah be on them at all times, times than go by and times that set in O my Allah, therefore, in their names, unto Thee, I turn to get a hearing and make a request—it is the request of an accused, aware of the wrong done by him to his ownself, in negligence, day in and out—to seek Thy protection until covered with earth in the grave. O my Allah send blessings on Muhammad and on his children and raise us (on the day of resurrection in the group of his associates, give us an abode near him in the eternal land of bliss and happiness. O my Allah just as Thou obliged us with the awareness of his true substance please also promote our close friendship with him, sustain us so far, dedicated, we are useful to his mission, trying to overtake one another, keep us among those who willingly follow his instructions and guidance. And every time, whenever we mention his name, invoke Thee to send blessings on him and on all his successors, his chosen family, the Twelve Bright identified by Thee, Thy decisive arguments over all mankinds. O my Allah equip us today with the best maturity and education to carry on successfully the demands of Thy mission just as Husayn had been put in readiness by his grandfather, Muhammad (S.A.); and just as Futrus (an Angel) found tranquility in his (Husayn’s) cradle, let us get peace of mind at his “resting abode” where we go to pronounce the profession of true faith and await his return. Be it so, O Lord of the worlds.

اَللّـهُمَّ اِنّي اَساَلُكَ بِحَقِّ الْمَوْلُودِ في هذَا الْيَوْمِ، الْمَوْعُودِ بِشَهادَتِهِ قَبْلَ اْستِهْلالِهِ وَوِلادَتِهِ. بَكَتْهُ السَّماءُوَمَنْ فيها، وَالاَْرْضُ وَمَنْ عَلَيْها، وَلَمّا يَطَأْ لابَتَيْها قَتيل الْعَبْرَةِ، وَسَيِّدِ الاُْسْرَةِ، الْمَمْدُودِ بِالنُّصْرَةِ يَوْمَ الْكَرَّةِ، الْمُعَوَّضِ مِنْ قَتْلِهِ اَنَّ الاَْئِمَّةَ مِنْ نَسْلِهِ، وَالشِّفاءَ في تُرْبَتِهِ، والْفَوْزَ مَعَهُ في اَوْبَتِهِ، والاَْصِياءِ مِنْ عِتْرَتِهِ بَعْدَ قائِمِهِمْ وَغَيْبَتِهِ حَتّى يُدْرِكُوا الاَْوْتارَ، وَيَثْأَرُوا الثّارَ، وَيُرْضُوا الْجَبّارَ، وَيَكُونُوا خَيْرَ اَنْصار، صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِمْ مَعَ اْختِلافِ اللَّيلِ وَالنَّهارِ، اَللّـهُمَّ فَبِحَقِّهِمْ اِلَيْكَ اَتَوَسَّلُ وَاَسْأَلُ سُؤالَ مُقْتَرف مُعْتَرف مُسيئ اِلى نَفْسِهِ، مِمَّا فَرَّطَ في يَوْمِهِ وَاَمْسِهِ يَسْأَلُكَ الْعِصْمَةَ اِلى مَحَلِّ رَمْسِهِ، اَللّـهُمَّ فَصَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّد وَعِتْرَتِهِ، وَاحْشُرْنا في زُمْرَتِهِ، وَبَوِّئْنا مَعَهُ دارَ الْكَرامَةِ، وَمَحَلَّ الاِقامَةِ، اَللّـهُمَّ وَكَما اَكْرَمْتَنا بِمَعْرِفَتِهِ فَاَكْرِمْنا بِزُلْفَتِهِ، وَارْزُقْنا مُرافَقَتَهُ وَسابِقَتَهُ، وَاجْعَلْنا مِمَّنْ يُسَلِّمُ لاَْمْرِهِ وَيُكْثِرُ الصَّلاةَ عَلَيْهِ عِنْدَ ذِكْرِهِ، وَعَلى جَميعِ اَوْصِيائِهِ وَاَهْلِ اَصْفِيائِهِ الْمَمْدُوديِنَ مِنْكَ بِالْعَدَدِ، الاَْثْنَىْ عَشَرَ، النّجُومِ الزُّهرِ، وَالْحُجَجِ عَلى جَميعِ الْبَشَرِ، اَللّـهُمَّ وَهَبْ لَنا في هذَا الْيَوْمِ خَيْرَ مَوْهِبَة، وَاَنْجِحْ لَنا فيهِ كُلَّ طَلِبَته كَما وَهَبْتَ الْحُسَيْنِ لُِمحَمَّد جَدِّهِ وَعاذَ فُطْرُسُ بِمَهْدِهِ، فَنَحْنُ عائِذُونَ بِقَبْرِهِ مِنْ بَعْدِهِ، نَشْهَدُ تُرْبَتَهُ، وَننْظُر اَوْبَتَهُ، آمينَ رَبَّ الْعالَمينَ .
