Question

Hello there. I read in the Shia books that before the battle of Karbala, Hussein taught his son a supplication. So I wanted to ask if he really learned that supplication from the Prophet, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, and taught it to his son. The suppliction is: "Bihaqqi Yaseen wal Qur-aanil Hakeem wa bihaqqi Taa-Haa wal Qur-aanil ‘Adheem yaa man yaqdiru ‘alaa ‘hawaa-ijis-saa-ileen yaa man ya’lamu maa fid-dhameer yaa munaffisan ‘anil makroobeen yaa mufarrijan ‘anil maghmoomeen yaa raa-‘hima shaykhil kabeer yaa raaziqat tiflis-sagheer yaa man laa yahtaaju ilat-tafseer salli ‘alaa Muhammadin wa aali Muhammadin waf-‘al bee …(mention your wishes)

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

After extensive research in the reliable books of the Sunnah that we have at hand, we have not come across this supplication, neither as an authentic narration, nor as a weak one.

We do not think that this supplication was said by the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) and not even by Al-Husayn  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him.

There is no doubt that it is better to supplicate with the supplications mentioned in the Quran and the authentic Sunnah, as there is much goodness and blessings in them, and they are sufficient.

Allah knows best.
