The Mujeer supplication (Arabic: Mujeer Du'a) is an Islamic prayer or Dua said on the 13th, 14th, and 15th days of the month of Ramadan.[1][2] Jibra'il (Gabriel) is said to have taught the prayer to Muhammad when he was praying at Maqam Ibrahim.[1][2]

The Mujeer supplication text was mentioned in the books Balad al-Amin and Misbuh by Ibrahim ibn Ali A’meli Kafa’mi.[3]

Content[edit]

The supplication praises Allah. The sentences are short and after two of them, a sentence meaning “give us refuge from the everlasting fire, O Giver Of Refuge” is repeated. The words "Subhaanaka" ("Glory be to You") and "Ta-aalayta" ("Exalted be You") are frequently used in the prayer.[1][4][5]

Part of the Mujeer supplication and its English pronunciation and translation:[5]

سُبْحانَكَ يا اَللهُ تَعالَيْتَ يا رَحْمنُ اَجِرْنا مِنَ النّارِ يا مُجيرُ
  • Pronunciation: subhaanaka yaa Allaaho ta-aalayta yaa rahmaano ajirnaa menan naare yaa mojeer
  • Translation: Glory be to You O Allah! Exalted be You O Beneficent! Give us refuge from the everlasting fire, O Giver Of Refuge!


سُبْحانَكَ يا رَحيمُ تَعالَيْتَ يا كَريمُ اَجِرْنا مِنَ النّارِ يا مُجيرُ
  • Pronunciation: subhaanaka yaa raheemo ta-aalayta yaa kareem ajirnaa menan naare yaa mojeer
  • Translation: Glory be to You O Merciful! Exalted be You O Generous! Give us refuge from the everlasting fire, O Giver Of Refuge!

Purpose[edit]

Muslims recite the Mujeer for absolution and to be saved from the fire of Akhirah.[6][7] In the opinion of Ayatollah Mojtahedi everyone who reads the Du'a in the thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth days of Ramadan will have their sins forgiven.[8] Some Shia Muslims claim that saying the prayer "is also very effective for the cure of the sick, fulfillment of debts, acquisition of wealth and relief from sorrows." [9]
