Sayyid Ibn Tawus writes down on the authority of the books of some Imamiyyah
scholars that it is recommended, on the third of Safar, to offer a
two unit prayer at the first of which
Surah al-Fatihah and Surah al-Fath (No. 48) should be recited and at
the second, Surah al-Fatihah and
Surah al-Tawhid should be recited.
After accomplishment, invocation of blessings upon the Holy Prophet and his
Household, invocation of curse upon the Umayyad, and imploration for forgiveness
repeated one hundred times each. After all that, one may pray for granting his
needs. The invocation of curse upon the Umayyads should be in the following
O Allah, curse the family of Abu-Sufyan.
