Prayer at Dawn in the Month of Ramadan

اَللّهُمَّ قَدْ حَضَرَ شَهْرُ رَمَضانَ، وَقَدِ افْتَرَضْتَ عَلَيْنَا صِيَامَهُ، وَاَنْزَلْتَ فِيْهِ الْقُرآنَ هُدىً لِلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتِ مِنَ الْهُدَى وَالْفُرْقَانِ، اَللّهُمَّ اَعِنّاعَلَى صِيَامِهِ، وَتَقَبَّلْهُ مِنَّا وَتَسَلَّمْهُ مِنّا وَسَلِّمْهُ لَنا فِي يُسْرٍ مِنْكَ وَعَافِيَةٍ اِنَّكَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

Iftar Prayer


O Allah, only for You I fast, only with Your sustenance I break my fast, and only in You I place my trust.

Or read the iftar prayer taught by Imam Ali bin Abi Talib as.

 بِسْمِ اللهِ اَللَّهُمَّ لَكَ صُمْنَا وَعَلَى رِزْقِكَ اَفْطَرْنَا فَتَقَبَّلْ مِنَّا اِنَّكَ اَنْتَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ

In the name of Allah, because of You we fast, and with Your provision we break our fast. O Allah, accept our fast. For verily You are the All-Hearing and the All-Seeing.

After breaking the fast, one should give alms and feed the fasting person when the time for fasting comes, even if it is with a date or a sip of water.

The Messenger of Allah said: "Whoever gives food to a fasting person, he will get a reward like the fasting person without the reward being reduced in the slightest and will get the reward of the good that he does because of the energy he gets from the food."

Prayer Before Reading the Koran

The Prophet and Ma'sumin always recited the Al-Quran every night of Ramadan. It is highly recommended to read the Quran on the nights of Ramadan. When starting to read it should be taken with the right hand while opening it by reading the following prayer:

اَللَّهُمَّ اِنِّي اَشْهَدُ اَنَّ هَذَا كِتَابُكَ الْمُنْزَلُ مِنْ عِنْدِكَ عَلَى رَسُولِكَ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَبْدِاللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ، وَكَلاَمُكَ النَّاطِقُ عَلَى لِسَانِ نَبِيِّكَ، جَعَلْتَهُ هَادِياً مِنْكَ اِلَى خَلْقِكَ، وَحَبْلاً مُتَّصِلاً فِيْمَا بَيْنَكَ وَبَيْنَ عِبَادِكَ، اَللَّهُمَّ اِنِّي نَشَرْتُ عَهْدَكَ وَكِتَابَكَ، اَللَّهُمَّ فَاجْعَلْ نَظَرِي فِيْهِ عِبَادَةً، وَقِرَاءَتِي فِيْهِ فِكْراً، وَفِكْرِي فِيْهِ اِعْتِبَاراً، وَاجْعَلْنِي مِمَّنْ اِتَّعَظَ بِبَيَانِ مَوَاعِظِكَ فِيْهِ، وَاجْتَنَبَ مَعَاصِيْكَ، وَلاَ تَطْبَعْ عِنْدَ قِرَاءَتِي عَلَى سَمْعِي، وَلاَ تَجْعَلْ عَلَى بَصَرِي غِشَاوَةً، وَلاَ تَجْعَلْ قِرَاءَتِي قِرَاءَةً لاَ تَدَبُّرَ فِيْهَا، بَلِ اجْعَلْنِي اَتَدَبَّرُ آيَاتِهِ وَاَحْكَامَهُ، آخِذاً بِشَرَائِعِ دِيْنِكَ، وَلاَ تَجْعَلْ نَظَرِي فِيْهِ غَفْلَةً، وَلاَ قِرَاءَتِي هَذَراً، اِنَّكَ اَنْتَ الرَّؤُوْفُ الرَّحِيْمُ


O Allah, I bear witness, verily this Quran was sent down from Your side to Your Messenger Muhammad bin Abdillah (saw). As Your word spoken through the verbal intercession of Your Prophet. You made it a guide for all mankind  and a connecting link between You and Your servants. O Allah, I spread Your promises and Your book. O Allah, make my eyes look at him as worship, my reading of him as meditation, and my meditation on him brings lessons. Make me one of those people who advise people with Your advice contained in them, and advise people to stay away from doing evil to You. Do not cover my hearing when I read the Koran (so that I do not get guidance from it), and do not make my recitation of it as reading without taking lessons from it. In fact, make it by reading it, I can take lessons from the verses and laws that make reference to Your sharia. Do not make my eyes look at him as a negligent look, and my reading on him as an ambiguous reading. Truly You are Most Forgiving, Most Merciful.

Ramadan Farewell Prayer

It is sunnah to release the month of Ramadan by reading a farewell prayer, which is narrated from the Prophet Muhammad as follows:

اللَّهُمَّ لاَتَجْعَلْهُ آخِرَالْعَهْدِ مِنْ صِيَامِنَا إِيَّاهُ فَإِنْ جَعَلْتَهُ فَاجْعَلْنِيْ مَرْحُوْمًا وَلاَ تَجْعَلْنِيْ مَحْرُوْمًا         _cc781905 -5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_         _cc781905-5cde-3194- bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ 

O Allah, do not make our current fast the last fast in life. If you make this fast the last fast in my life, then make it a blessed fast, and don't make it an empty fast (not accepted).

Procedure for Eid Prayer

Eid al-Fitr prayer is sunnah and if it is done with a congregation, it should be done with the intention of "Raja'an". The Eid al-Fitr prayer consists of two cycles. In the first rak'ah, recite the letter al-Fatihah and the letter as-Syam or al-A'la, then recite the takbir 5 (five) times. In the second rak'ah recite the letter al-Fatihah and the letter al-Ghasyiyah or as-Syam, then recite the takbir 4 (four) times. Between one takbir and another takbir recite the qunut prayer. After greeting Zahra's prayer beads, then prostrate 4 (four) times.

إِلَهِيْ أَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنْ نَّارٍحَرِّهَا_ cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b3b3bad5cf58d_ لاَيُطْفَى وَجدِيْels

O Allah, I seek refuge in You from the fire of hell which is always hot, never cold forever and its thirst cannot be quenched.


Prostrate with the right temple and recite:

إِلَهِيْ لاَ تُقَلِّبْ وَجْهِيْ فِى النَّارِ بَعْدَ سُzz For


O Allah, do not turn my face back and forth in the fire of hell after I prostrate and I polish my forehead and face (to the ground in the context of servitude) to You, without demanding anything from You, because You are the one who has the right to sue me.


Prostrate with the left temple and recite:

اِرْحَمْ مَنْ أَسَاءَ وَاقْتَرَفَ وَاسْتَكَانَ وَاعْتَرَفَ

O Allah, have mercy on the guilty servant and admit his mistake.

About Khums

Khums literally means one fifth or 20 percent (20%). In fiqh law, khums means a property obligation that must be issued by a servant as much as 20% of his excess income after deducting his living expenses for one year. Quran:


_CC781905-5CDE-3194-BB3B336BAD5CF58D_ وَلِذِی الْقُرْبَی وَالْيَتَامَی وَالْمَسَاکِيْنِ_ CC781905

 آمَنْتُمْ بِاللهِ وَمَا اَنْزَلْنَا عَلَی عَبْدِنَا يَوْمَ الْفُرْقَانِ يَوْمََْ

 الْجَمْعَانِ وَاللهُ عَلَی کُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ

"Know, whatever you earn, one-fifth (of it) is for Allah, the Messenger, the relatives of the Apostle, orphans, the poor and ibnusabil, if you believe in Allah and in what We sent down to our servants ( Muhammad) on the day of Furqan, which is the day when two armies meet. And Allah has power over all things': (Surah al-Anfal: 41).

Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) said:

لاَ يَحِلُّ ِلأَحَدٍ أَنْ يَشْتَرِيَ مِنَ الْخُمْسِ شَيْئًا حَتَّى يَصِلَ اِلَيْنَا حَقَّنَا

"It is not lawful for anyone to buy something from khums money unless he has paid us our rights." (wasail al Shia Juz 6 p1.238).


Imam Khomeini ra said:

لَوِاشْتَرَى دَارًا بِعَيْنِ الْمَالِ الَّذِيْ تَعَلَّقَ بِهِ

 الْخُمْسَ أَو الزََّكَاةَ تَبْطُلُ الصَّلاَةُ فِيْهَا

"If someone buys a house with money related to (the obligation) of zakat or khums, then the prayer that he performs in that house is cancelled. (Tahrir al-wasilah Juz.1 p.134).


What are the must-haves?

There are seven things that must be considered:

The results of the spoils of war obtained by the Muslims because of the war that occurred between the Muslims and the infidels.

Mining goods such as gold, silver, iron, copper, coal, tin and so on.

Treasures obtained from the ground that are unknown to their owners.

Results obtained from the sea.

Proceeds of private property mixed with illicit assets and the amount of which is unlawful and the owner is unknown.

The land of the Muslims bought by the dhimmi infidels.

The excess of a person's income for one year.

Who is obliged to serve?

Khums becomes obligatory for everyone who gets the excess of his income for one year after deducting all the needs of his living expenses and the living expenses of his dependents.


How to calculate khums?

There are two important things to consider when calculating the khums liability. First, determine in advance when the beginning of the khums year. Second, calculate how much his life needs for one year. If these two things are known then he can very easily calculate how much khums obligations he has to spend each year.


I. Determine the beginning of the khums year

How to calculate the beginning of the khums year?

Let's take a look at the following fatwas from Ayatollah as-Sayid Ali Khamenei:

(Problem 926): How can the initial year for paying the khums be determined?

(Answer): The khums year for such workers and employees starts from the date of obtaining the first results of work and taklif while the beginning of the khums year for shop owners falls on the time when the action of buying and selling begins.


II. Calculate the cost of living for one year

Everyone's life needs are definitely different. The standard is conscience and normal public opinion ('urf). The fuqaha mention five items that can be categorized as necessities of life or in the language of fiqh it is referred to as maunah.

First, the cost of living that is usually incurred by normal humans to support themselves.

Second, government taxes, as well as the kaffarat he might issue.

Third, basic human needs such as housing, transportation, clothing and so on.

Fourth, family expenses such as household expenses, wife's needs, children's education, clothing, eating and drinking, recreation and pilgrimage as well as all family needs that are considered normal and reasonable.

Fifth, the costs of the obligatory pilgrimage and its social charities such as compensation funds or reasonable gifts.

Calculation of khums can be done after deducting all the expenses above. If after that there are still leftovers then from that leftover we take out the khums.


To whom was the khums given?

In accordance with the verses of the Al-Quran, only six groups will receive khums:

Allah, Messengers, Ahlul Bait, orphans, the poor and ibnusabil from the descendants of Bani Hasyim.

The jurists have summarized these six classes into two shares: the Imam's Share, which includes the share of Allah, the Apostle and the holy Imam from the family of the Apostle; and sadah shares, namely the sayid of the descendants of Bani Hasyim, who are orphans, the poor and ibnusabil.

The two shares above, today are fully managed by Marjak Taklid. He is the most entitled to determine for what and where the khums money is distributed. The Marjak Taklid of course also do not work alone. He also appointed a number of people who were known to be trustworthy and pious to become his representatives in the management of the khums for the benefit of religion and the people.


About Zakat

Considering that many scientific and popular publications regarding zakat have been written and circulated in society, this booklet will not review them again. Here we just want to convey that, apart from the Khumus, the Mustadhafin Fund also receives and distributes Zakat, Infaq, Alms, Grants, Sacrifices and others. Zakat, Infak and Alms are also religious demands that are no less important than the obligation of khums. As the Noble Quran mentions:


"Establish prayer and pay zakat  and bow with people  who bow." (QS Al Baqarah 43)


Likewise with the words of Rasulullah saw:

إِنَّمَا الْبَخِيْلُ حَقَّ الْبَخِيْلِ الَّذِيْ يَمْنَعُ الزَّكَاةَ الْمَفْرُوْضَةَ   فِى مَالِهِ وَيمْنَعُ الْبَائِنَةَ فِى قَوْمِهِ وَهُوَ فِيْمَا سِوَى ذَلِكَ يُبَذِّرُ

"A person who is truly miserly is one who refrains from paying his zakat obligations and withholds gifts to his relatives even though he squanders his wealth on other things." (Ma'anil Akhbar P. 245)
