It has been reported through reliable chain of narrators that Imam Jafar Sadiq
(a.s.) said, “It is obligatory on every Muslim to recite the following ten
times before sunrise and before sunset”.
There is no god save Allah, no one other than Him, and there is no associate
with Him; sovereignty belongs to Him, all praise is for Him alone, gives life to
the dead, brings death to the living, , because He is Ever living, Immortal; in
His hand is the good; He is able to do all things.
