Prayer of Ja'far e Tayyar (as)

Prayer of -Ja’far-e-Tayyar (brother of Imam Ali (as) is among the prayers that are greatly emphasized and it is famous among all sects. It was a gift of love bestowed by the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) to his cousin upon his return from the journey.

Imam Sadiq (a.s.) has said: On the day of the conquest of Khyber when Ja’far returned from Abyssinia the Holy Prophet ( s.a.w.s.) asked: Don’t you want a reward? Don’t you want a gift? Hadrat Ja’far replied: Why not, O Messenger of Allah? The Messenger of Allah ( s.a.w.s.) said: I am giving you something that if you perform it everyday it would better than all those things that are present in the world. And if you perform it once in two days the Almighty will forgive the sins of both these days and if you perform it every Friday or every month or every year the Almighty will forgive all the sins committed in between.

The best time to perform it is on Friday before noon. This prayer can be counted as the Nafila of the night or the Nafila of the day.

It is a four units prayer, divided into two parts 2 x 2 units. Pray each part exactly like the dawn prayer, with the following adjustments:

(i) First unit, after recitation of Sura Faatihah, recite Sura 99 Zilzaal
(ii) Second unit, after recitation of Sura Faatihah, recite Sura 100 Aadiyaat
(iii) Third unit, after recitation of Sura Faatihah, recite Sura 110 Nasr
(iv) Fourth unit, after recitation of Sura Faatihah, recite Sura Ikhlaas.

In each unit recite 'Tasbeehaatul Arbaa' 75 times (see below) ie cumulative 300 times in four units:

(i) After recitation of Surahs… 15 times (ii) In Rukoo… 10 times (iii) In Qiyyaam after Rukoo… 10 times (iv) In the First Sajdah… 10 times (v) While sitting after First Sajdah… 10 times (vi) In the second Sajdah… 10 times (vii) While sitting after second Sajdah … 10 times. ( including in second rakat 'before' reciting salam)

One has to make an effort to remember to recite this at each movement since the automatic action is to go to next action in normal prayer. In case the recitation is missed in any position, those tasbihaat may be recited at the end upon completion

Tasbeehatul Arbaa is recited as under:

Glory be to Allah, Praise be to Allah, there is no god but Allah, and Allah is Great.

In case of old age/weakness, one can recite Tasbeehaatul arbaa 300 times at the end of the prayer, according to your convenience, while sitting, lying or standing. More rules

According to Imam Jafar Sadiq (a.s.), the following supplication is to be recited, in the last Sajdah of the fourth unit.

O Allah, send blessings on Mohammad and on the Progeny of Mohammad.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

Glory be to He Who covers Himself with honour and dignity.

Glory be to He Who bestows favours abundantly, therefore surpasses in glory.

Glory be to He except whom none is worthy of glorification.

Glory be to He Whose wisdom surrounds everything;

Glory be to He Who owns favours and bounties,

Glory be to He who is the Lord of Power and Generosity.

O Allah! Beseech Thee in the name of that which is the cause of the majesty of Thy Arsh; and is the ultimate mercy in Thy book, and (in the name of) Thy “ ismi Aazam” and


Thy complete and perfect words which have been made thorough and conclusive through truth and justice.

Send blessings on Mohammad and on the progeny of Mohammad, And do (as I request)…( mention your desires)

Shaykh al-Tusi and Sayyid Ibn Tawus both narrated that al-Mufaddal ibn `Umar said that he heard Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (a.s.) saying the following prayer after accomplishing Ja`far al-Tayyar’s Prayer:

Say it as many times as possible in one breath.

O Lord, O Lord!

Say it as many times as possible in one breath.

O my Lord, O my Lord!


Say it as many times as possible in one breath

Lord, Lord!


Say it as many times as possible in one breath.

O Allah, O Allah!


O Ever-living, O Ever-living!


Say it as many times as possible in one breath.

O All-merciful, O All-merciful!


Repeat it seven times.

O All-compassionate, O All-compassionate!


Repeat it seven times.

O Most Merciful of all those who show mercy!


Then, say the following supplication:

O Allah, I commence my wording with declaring praise to You,

I utter the words of tribute to You,

I glorify You although Your glory is limitless,

and I compliment You although none can ever compliment You as much as You deserve and none can ever attain the extent of Your glory!

And how can Your creatures ever recognize Your glory [in its actual measure]!

And how can there be any moment for which You do not deserve praise due to Your favors

and in which You are not ascribed to glory

and in which You do not incessantly treat the sinful with Your forbearance?

Although the inhabitants of Your earth have fallen behind in being obedient to You,

You have been kind to them out of Your munificence,

munificent out of Your favors,

and liberal out of Your generosity.

O He save Whom there is no god! O All-benevolent!

O Lord of Glory and Honor!

Al-Mufaddal then added: Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (a.s.) then said to me, “If you have a significant request and you want it to be granted, you may offer this prayer, say this supplication, and implore Almighty Allah to respond to you. If you do, it will be granted, Allah willing.”

Rules of prayer of  Ja’far-e-Tayyar

If one intends to pray Ja’far-e-Tayyar’s prayer but he is short of time he should recite as many Tasbee-e-Arba as he has time and later when he is free he should recite those Tasbeeh with the intention of getting Sawab.

If there is no time to recite the actual Tasbeehs then he should recite Ja’far-e-Tayyar’s prayer in units of two like the Morning Prayer and he can recite the Tasbee-e-Arba while walking or working or in any condition one likes with the intention of getting Sawab.

If he has only sufficient time to recite only two rakat with Tasbeeh-e-Arba fully he should recite those two units only and the remaining two units he can recite whenever he has the time.

If during the prayer he forgets the Tasbeehat-e-Arba he should recite it if he remembers it at that time itself but if he remembers it later, that is after the time has passed in this condition the prayer is correct, but it is better to recite the Tasbeehat that he has missed with the intention of getting Sawab.

Ja’far-e-Tayyar’s prayer can also be prayed on behalf of the departed ones and also only the Sawab of this prayer can be gifted to them. Gifting the sawab to the departed ones increases the levels of their soul and also the one who has prayed is also rewarded. The level would be as high as the gift is higher. And in the same way would be the position of one who is gifting the sawab. The reward of Ja’far-e-Tayyar’s prayer in the Haram of the Infallible Imams (a.s.) is more than that of a thousand Hajjs and Umrahs.

Ja`far al-Tayyar’s Prayer is as precious as gold, since it is the most magnificent recommended devotional rite. Altogether with its great merits the most important of which is that it erases major sins, this prayer has been reported through authenticated chain of authority. The best time of its performance is the first hours of daylight on Fridays

Al-Mufaddal then added: Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (a.s.) then said to me, “If you have a significant request and you want it to be granted, you may offer this prayer, say this supplication, and implore Almighty Allah to respond to you. If you do, it will be granted, Allah willing.”

For Special needs /Hajaat

Imam (a.s.) told me: O Mufaddal! When you have a need, you must recite Ja’far-e-Tayyar’s prayer and then recite this supplication and beseech the Almighty for your needs so that it is fulfilled. Friday is the best day for Ja’far-e-Tayyar’s prayer. One should perform Ghusl before the noon and if the problem is severe he should go in wilderness and pray Ja’far-e-Tayyar’s prayer.

Shaykh al-Tusi has narrated that Imam al-Sadiq (a.s.) recommended the following prayer for having one’s requests granted:

Observe fasting on consecutive Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. At Thursday evening, give half bushel of food for ten poor people as alms. On Friday, wash yourself and go out to a wasteland and offer therein Ja`far al-Tayyar’s Prayer

Kneel down on the ground & You may then say the following prayer:

O He Who has shown only goodness

and concealed the evil (deeds of His servants)!

O He Who has not censured for the offenses

and has not exposed the hidden!

O He Who is Ample in pardoning!

O He Who is Excellent in overlooking!

O He Who is Liberal in forgiveness!

O He Who opens His Hands wide with mercy!

O He Who is present in all confidential talks!

O He Who is the ultimate objective of all complaints!

O He Who raises from falls!

O He Who is Generous in condonation!

O He Who is Great in conferring bounties!

O He Who takes the initiative in favoring before they are deserved!

O my Lord, O my Lord, O my Lord!

Repeat this statement ten times.

O Allah, O Allah, O Allah!

Repeat it ten times, too.

O my Master, O my Master!

Repeat it ten times.

O my Chief, O my Chief!

Repeat it ten times.

O my hope!

Repeat it ten times.

O my succor!

Repeat it ten times.

O ultimate of my desire!

Repeat it ten times.

O All-beneficent!

Repeat it ten times.

O All-merciful!

Repeat it ten times.

O Giver of fortunes!

Repeat it ten times.

Bless Mohammad and the Household of Mohammad

as much as and as decently as

You have ever blessed any of Your creatures.


You may then mention your requests.

Many narrations have mentioned emphatically fasting on these three days and then performance of a two-unit prayer at midday on Friday so that one’s requests are granted.
