The prayer of Sanam-e-Qurash (the idols of Quraish) is a very authentic prayer of Amir-ul-momineen Hazrat Ali bin Abi Talib a.s. and so has been recognised by all renowned Shia historians.
It has been narrated by Abdulla bin Abbas that one night I went to the masjid-e-Nabbivi to offer my late-night prayers and saw Amir-ul-Momineen(a.s) offering his supplications. I decided to sit in a corner and listen to Mola Ali a.s.’s recitation of Quran and prayers. After completing Salat, mola a.s. recited supplications which I had never heard before. Later, I approached Imam Ali a.s. and said may I be your ransom, please tell me more about those prayers which I have never heard before.
Mola Ali a.s. then replied, it was ‘Dua-e-Sanam-e-Quraish’ and added I swear to Allah swt. who owns the lives of Mohammed a.s. and Ali a.s., whoever would recite this prayer will get an extra-ordinary reward from the Lord; similar to assisting Prophet Mohammeds.a.w..during the battles of ‘Ohad and Tabuuq’ and would achieve the martyred status in the presence of His prophet a.s.. And the reward of 100 Hajj and Umara as an associate of Prophet Mohammed a.s. as well as ‘Sawab’ of 1000 months of fasting. In addition, one will be on the side of Rasool Allaha.s. and Aimah masomeen a.s. on the day of judgement and Allah swt. will forgive all his/her sins, despite the fact if his/her committed sins are equivalent to the stars in the sky, grains of sand in the wilderness and leaves of all trees. Also the reciter will be saved from punishment in the grave and a window from heaven will be installed in his/her grave.

InShaAllah, prayers will be rewarded, through the sanctity of the supplication, and Oh! Iba Abbas if any of our friends is, in particular, engulfed by hardship, he/she would surely find a refuge through recitation of this prayer.

(Ref: Wazaif-al-Abrar, Toufatul Awam Urdu/Arbic versions)


O Allah! Send your blessings and salutations to Mohammed and descendents of Mohammed a.s.
O’ Allah! Curse the two idols of Quraish and their two magicians, their two rebellious people, their two accusers and their two daughters. Rebuke them, they have consumed Your sustenance and have denied Your obligations, both have discarded Your commands, have rejected Your revelation, have disobeyed Your Prophet, have destroyed Your religion, have distorted Your book, have made Your laws ineffective, have declared Your obligatory actions as incorrect, have disbelieved in Your signs, have oppressed Your friends, have favoured Your enemies, have spread corruption among Your people, have made Your world unstable and subject to loses.
O’ Allah! Send Your curses on them and their helpers as they have ruined the house of Your prophet, have dug the door of his house, broken the roof, have brought down the walls, have turned upside down the highly respected symbols (i.e. skies) to the lower status (i.e., ground). His explicit laws to the implicit jargon, have destroyed Your ‘selected’ inhabitants, have killed their supporters have put righteous to death, their children have been killed and confiscated His Prophet’s pulpit and denied rights of the successors of Prophet’s knowledge to the divine pulpit, they themselves have desired for the prophet-hood, have ascribed a partner to their Lord, thus consider their sins to be absolute, and make their abode in 'saqar' forever, and You know what 'saqar does to its inhabitants!'It leaves nothing, nor lets anything remain intact.

O’ Allah, send Your chastisement on them; to the extent of the sins of every disobedient, and the covering of the truth, and all the pulpits which they have used, and the believers whom they have hurt and the disbelievers whom they have rewarded,And to the number of pious people whom they have troubled, and those who have driven out of their cities, and their support for the disbelievers, and their atrocities towards (Your appointed) Imam and have changed the obligatory laws, and have destroyed the traditions of the Holy Prophet, and whatever evils they have concealed, the blood which they shed, have changed the goodness and have altered the commands, have created disbelief, the lie for which they have cheated, the inheritance which they have plundered, and stopped the booties from them and have consumed the prohibited wealth,And that 'Khums' (the fifth part) which they considered as lawful for them, and those evils which they planted, and that cruelty which they regularly practised, that oppression, which they spread, those promises, which they dishonoured, those covenant which they broke, those lawful matters which were reverted to be unlawful, and those forbidden acts which were made lawful, That hypocrisy which they have concealed in their hearts, and to the amount of treachery which they bore in their hearts, and that atrocity which targeted masooma’s(s.a) stomach and inflicting lethal harm, and that 'pahlu' which they broke, and that door which they burnt-down, the Prophet’s writing which they shredded and those ‘haq’ gatherings which they dispersed and those degraded ones which were honoured, and those honourables who were insulted,And (curse them) by the number of rights which they have usurped, and the orders of (Your) Imam(a.s) which they opposed, impinge Your wrath on them to the extent of their atrocities.

O’ Allah! implicate Your curses on them to the extent of alterations they have introduced in Quran and the cover-ups in their lies, tempering with the divine wills, Lords deeds which were made redundant , and those promises which were disregarded, and those verdicts which were made void. Refusal of their allegiances, presentation of excuses, introduction of breach of trust, their acts of climbing on hills (for their lives) and those fixed rules which they turned other way round and all that defects which they possessed. Bestow Your curses on them.

O’ Allah curse those two, secretly as well as openly, persistently, everlasting, non-stoppable one and innumerable times. Such a whipping that commences in the morning but does not ends at night. Such a beating should be on those tyrants, and their helpers, their associates, their friends and their fans (‘Muslameen’), those who have attracted to them and those who acknowledge their deeds, those who present proof for them, and on those who standby their followers and those who follow their words, and those who approve their actions.

(Then recite four times)
O Allah! Send such a harsh chastisement upon them, that the dwellers of Hell start screaming for mercy,
O Lord of the Universe! accept this prayer from me.

Islamic commands and the Advance of Time

The transformation, evolution and development of the means of living and progress in the various elements of civilization have no kind of incompatibility with the eternity of the commands of Islam, because the incompatibility of a law with this kind of progress is 
because the law depends on fundamental means and special factors. For example, if one makes a law: only the hand must be used when writing, only a donkey must be used for travel, etc. this kind of law cannot come into action when science and civilization advance but if it is not in contradiction with fundamental means, and at the time of making the law these were only used as examples, they will not clash with the occurrence of now means and the advance of civilization.

Islamic laws are of this latter category that is to say they do not look especially at the means of one period in history. For example, they say: one must be unconquerable with regard to foreign powers so as to defend one’s vital and human rights. This law, although it was declared in the time of the sword, never depends on the instruments of that time, i.e. Islam never says: 
The Islamic jihad must only be with swords. Thus it is practicable today. Similarly with business transactions, trade, word, etc. So, however much civilization and its means and elements expand, it will never leave the domain of inclusion in the laws of Islam, and this is one of the secrets of eternity of Islam.

Does Islam Dispense with contemporary Idealogies and systems of Thought?
There is no doubt that man has progressed far in the way of knowledge, but scientists themselves confess that what they know in the world of creation is not comparable with what they do not know and basically, since their vision is limited, they cannot find out all the secrets of the world. Moreover, each leap forward that man makes is not immune from error.
Therefore, in the area of human aspirations, not everything that comes forward, in every field, can be one hundred percent imbued with certainty, because it is possible that environmental factors and other unforeseen thing have an effect on man”s thinking and outlook and take him far from reality. But the fundamental project of Islam, since it grows from the root of revelation, has nothing to do with the possibility of mistake, and can give trustworthy guidance at all times of course, with the condition that these pure laws are not inserted within the framework of other deviated systems, whereupon they the become completely incapable of deriving advantage.
