Imam Ja’afar Sadiq (a.s.), while predicting the period of the absence of the Last Imam (a.s), says,
"During that troublesome period there will be so much of sedition and fighting that the angels would be astonished at the very many deaths of men of piety!"
The narrator asked the Imam (a.s.),
"What should the people do in that difficult time?"
The Imam (a.s.) replied, "They should recite the Dua-e-Ghareeq. This consists in saying
"Ya Allaho ya Rahmano ya Raheem ya Muqallabul Quloob sabbit qalbi ala deenek"
"O Rehman, O Raheem, O one who Guides the hearts! Keep my heart steadfast on Your Faith!"
Man should think that he is really helpless in times when Satan’s retainers are roaming free. No heart is safe from their onslaught.
O Allah! Guard our hearts from anger, fighting and all the effects of these Shayateen! Amin
