O Allah send blessings on Muhammad and on the children of Mohammad.
In the name of Allah the Beneficent the Merciful.

My Allah! Whatever I say on the day of this Friday, or whatever I take up with, or
whatever I devote myself to, in conformity with Thy directions, is before Thee from A to Z.
So what Thou wills to do in this connection do, & what Thou does not will to do don't.
My Allah forgive me, & be indulgent.
My Allah, whom so Thou has blessed, I adore him, whom so Thou has cursed, I hate him.
O Allah send blessings on Muhammad and on the children of Mohammad.

~*~ TAAQEBAAT of Fajr Namaaz~*~

(iii) Recite the following dua'a as Taaqebaat of Fajr Namaaz:
O Allah send blessings on Muhammad and on the children of Mohammad.
In the name of Allah the Beneficent the Merciful.

My Allah! I cling to Thee with my wants & needs,
I put up to Thee today my woes of distress, hunger & poverty,
I except to receive forgiveness from Thee, from whom more is to be hoped for than my conduct deserves, Authority of Thy forgiveness & mercy extends far & wide & can easily make room for & set at ease my guilt & shame.
So follow close upon the issue of my demands, on account of the absolute authority Thou commands, because for Thee it is very easy to deal with them, my dilemma of misery is before Thee,
I never am inclined towards good but only when inspired by Thee,
and sins never leave me alone unless Thou separate them from me.
There is no hope of relief in the hereafter nor in this world,
nor on the day loneliness will surround me, at the time when people bury me in the grave & I lay bare myself before Thee with my sins, except from Thee.
O Allah send blessings on Muhammad and on the children of Mohammad.

~*~ ZUHR  PRAYERS~*~

a). In Zuhr prayers recite Sooratul Jumu-a'h & Sooratul Munafiqoon.
b). Imam Jaffer-as-Sadiq (AS) had advised the faithfuls to recite the following Soorahs (7 times each) after Zuhr prayers to remain safe from evil & misfortunes till next Friday:-

Naas Falaq Ikhlaas
Faatih'ah Kaafirron

* Last 2 verses of Sooratul Bara'at (Tawbah):
There has come unto you a Messenger, from among yourselves, unto whom painful it is that you are overburdened, full of concern for you, for the believers full of compassion, merciful. (128)
Now, if they turn away say: Allah suffices me. There is no god save Him. In Him have I put my trust, & He is the Lord of the glorious "ARSH". (129)


* Following verses of Sooratul H'ashr:
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
    If we had caused this Quran to descend upon a mountain, you (O Mohammed) verily had seen it humbled & rent asunder by the fear of Allah. Such similitude coin we for mankind that haply they may reflect. (21)
He is Allah, than Whom there is no other god, the Knower of the invisible & visible. He is the Beneficent, the Merciful. (22)
He is Allah, than Whom there is no other god, the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One, Peace, the keeper of faith, the Guardian, the Majestic, the compeller, the Superb. Glorified be Allah from all that they ascribe as partner (unto Him)! (23)
He is Allah, the Creator, the Shaper out of nothing, the Fashioner. His are the most beautiful names. All that is in the heavens & the earth glorifies Him, & He is the Mighty, the Wise. (24)

c). Recite Salwaat as many times as possible, between Zuhr & Asr prayers.
Salwaat: "ALLAAHUMMA S'ALLI A'LAA MUH'AMMADIN WA AALI MUH'AMMAD WA A'JJIL FARAJAHUM"

~*~ A'SR  PRAYERS ~*~

(i) As mentioned earlier recitation of "Salwaat" throughout Friday (night & day) has been suggested by our Holy Imams, but the prime time for reciting "Salwaat" is after A'sr Prayers.
The following text of "Salwaat" has come to us through Shaikh Kulaynee (RA):
(Recite as many times as possible)
O Allah bless Muhammad & children of Muhammad, the approved successors, with Thy superior most blessings; & give joy & happiness to them, the highest degree of Thy approval; & peace be on Him & Them; & Allah's tenderness & plentifulness for them.

(ii)
Recite 70 Times:
"ASTAGH FIRULLAAHA WA ATOOBU ILAYH"
I seek Allah's forgiveness & turn repentant to Him

(iii) Recite Sooratul "QADR" 100 times after A'sr prayers.

(iv)
Recite Dua'a-ul-A'sharaat after A'sr prayers.

(v)
  Shaykh Toosee says that twilight (at the time of sunset) is the best time for invoking Allah to seek fulfillment of legitmate desires. Bibi Zehra (SA) always preferred this hour for reciting Dua'as.
The Holy Prophet (SAWW) used to recite the following:
"Glory be to Thee; There is no god save Thou;
O Compassionate;
O Liberal;
O Creator of the heavens & the earth;
O Lord of majesty & kindness.

O Allah! Send blessings on Muhammad & on the children of Muhammad.
O Allah! Send blessings on Muhammad & on the children of Muhammad.
O Allah! Send blessings on Muhammad & on the children of Muhammad.
O Allah! Send blessings on Muhammad & on the children of Muhammad.
O Allah! Send blessings on Muhammad & on the children of Muhammad.
