Also known as “The Supplication of Lamentation”, this du’a is recommended to be recited on Fridays and the 4 Eid days; the Eid al-Fitr (1st Shawwal), Eid al-Adha (10th of Dhu’l-Hijjah), the Eid al-Ghadir (18th of Du’l-Hijjah).

One of the treasure of du'as is a pearl, known as Dua-e-Nudba. It is an important and authentic du'a. 'Nudba' means to cry or wail. It's deep meaning penetrates to the depths of the heart. This is enough proof that these are not the words of an ordinary person. They are uttered by the personality who has connection with the celestial world (Aalam-e-Malakoot). In this du'a, Imam Jaffer Sadiq (as), who has taught the Shia this du'a, beings by praising Allah and talking about how certain Prophets of God have been bestowed blessings by Allah. The Imam then goes on to describe the lofty status of the final messenger as well as that of the first Imam, Ali (as).

The Imam then laments about the tragedies which befell the Family of the Prophet and the absence of the 12th Imam, who would fill the world with justice after countless eras of injustice.

Du'a Nudba has been deemed authentic by scholars such as Sheikh Abbas Qummi, Allamah Majlisi, Sayed Raziuddin bin Tawoos and many more. This Dua is highly recommended to be recited on Friday and the days of Eid.
Friday is the day associated with the Zuhoor (return) of the 12th Imam.

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In the Name of Allah, the All-merciful, the All-compassionate
اَلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلْعَالَمِينَ
All praise be to Allah the Lord of the worlds.
وَصَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ نَبِيِّهِ
May Allah send blessings upon our master Muhammad His Prophet
وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ تَسْلِيماً
and upon his Household and may He salute them with thorough salutation.
اَللَّهُمَّ لَكَ ٱلْحَمْدُ
O Allah, all praise be to You
عَلَىٰ مَا جَرَىٰ بِهِ قَضَاؤُكَ
for Your decree that has been applied
فِي اوْلِيَائِكَ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱسْتَخْلَصْتَهُمْ لِنَفْسِكَ وَدِينِكَ
to Your vicegerents whom You have purely selected for Yourself and Your religion;
إِِذِ ٱخْتَرْتَ لَهُمْ جَزِيلَ مَا عِنْدَكَ
as You have chosen for them the abundance of what You have in possession;
مِنَ ٱلنَّعِيمِ ٱلْمُقِيمِ
that is the enduring pleasure
ٱلَّذِي لاََ زَوَالَ لَهُ وَلاَ ٱضْمِحْلاَلَ
that neither vanishes nor diminishes,
بَعْدَ انْ شَرَطْتَ عَلَيْهِمُ ٱلزُّهْدَ
after You had already stipulated on them to renounce
فِي دَرَجَاتِ هٰذِهِ ٱلدُّنْيَا ٱلدَّنِيَّةِ
all the ranks of this lowly world
وَزُخْرُفِهَا وَزِبْرِجِهَا
along with all of its embellishments and ornaments,
فَشَرَطُوٱ لَكَ ذٰلِكَ
and they accepted this stipulation.
وَعَلِمْتَ مِنْهُمُ ٱلْوَفَاءَ بِهِ
As You knew that they would fulfill this stipulation,
فَقَبِلْتَهُمْ وَقَرَّبْتَهُمْ
You accepted and drew them near to You.
وَقَدَّمْتَ لَهُمُ ٱلذِّكْرَ ٱلْعَلِيَّ
You thus provided them with sublime mention
وَٱلثَّنَاءَ ٱلْجَلِيَّ
and obvious approval,
وَاهْبَطْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ مَلاَئِكَتَكَ
made Your angels descend to them,
وَكَرَّمْتَهُمْ بِوَحْيِكَ
honored them with Your revelations,
وَرَفَدْتَهُمْ بِعِلْمِكَ
supported them with Your knowledge,
وَجَعَلْتَهُمُ ٱلذَّرِيعَةَ إِِلَيْكَ
and made them the channel to You
وَٱلْوَسِيلَةَ إِلَىٰ رِضْوَانِكَ
and the means to winning Your pleasure.
فَبَعْضٌ اسْكَنْتَهُ جَنَّتَكَ
Therefore, You made some of them dwell in Your Garden
إِلَىٰ انْ اخْرَجْتَهُ مِنْهَا
until You decided to take him out of there.
وَبَعْضٌ حَمَلْتَهُ فِي فُلْكِكَ
You bore another one on in Your Ark
وَنَجَّيْتَهُ وَمَنْ آمَنَ مَعَهُ
and saved him and those who believed with him
مِنَ ٱلْهَلَكَةِ بِرَحْمَتِكَ
from perdition, out of Your mercy.
وَبَعْضٌ ٱتَّخَذْتَهُ لِنَفْسِكَ خَلِيلاًَ
You took another one as Your intimate friend
وَسَالَكَ لِسَانَ صِدْقٍ فِي ٱلآخِرِينَ فَاجَبْتَهُ
and when he asked You to leave behind him a truthful mention, You responded to him
وَجَعَلْتَ ذٰلِكَ عَلِيّاً
and made that (mention) to be eminent.
وَبَعْضٌ كَلَّمْتَهُ مِنْ شَجَرَةٍ تَكْلِيماً
You spoke to another one from a tree directly
وَجَعَلْتَ لَهُ مِنْ اخِيهِ رِدْءاً وَوَزِيراً
and decided his brother to be his protector and representative.
وَبَعْضٌ اوْلَدْتَهُ مِنْ غَيْرِ ابٍ
You made another one to be born without a father,
وَآتَيْتَهُ ٱلْبَيِّنَاتِ
gave him clear-cut proofs
وَايَّدْتَهُ بِرُوحِ ٱلْقُدُسِ
and aided him with the Sacred Spirit.
وَكُلٌّ شَرَعْتَ لَهُ شَرِيعَةً
For each of them, You gave a code of law,
وَنَهَجْتَ لَهُ مِنْهَاجاً
decided a certain course,
وَتَخَيَّرْتَ لَهُ اوْصِيَاءَ
and finely chose successors;
مُسْتَحْفِظاً بَعْدَ مُسْتَحْفِظٍ
well-trustworthy successors one after another,
مِنْ مُدَّةٍ إِلَىٰ مُدَّةٍ
each for a certain period,
إِِقَامَةً لِدِينِكَ
in purpose of establishing Your religion
وَحُجَّةً عَلَىٰ عِبَادِكَ
and acting as arguments against Your servants,
وَلِئَلاَّ يَزُولَ ٱلْحَقُّ عَنْ مَقَرِّهِ
so that the truth should never leave its position
وَيَغْلِبَ ٱلْبَاطِلُ عَلَىٰ اهْلِهِ
and the wrong should never overcome the people of the truth
وَلاَ يَقُولَ احَدٌ
and so that none should claim, saying,
لَوْ لاَ ارْسَلْتَ إِِلَيْنَا رَسُولاًَ مُنْذِراً
“If only You had sent to us a warning messenger
وَاقَمْتَ لَنَا عَلَماً هَادِياً
and established for us a guiding person,
فَنَتَّبِعَ آيَاتِكَ مِنْ قَبْلِ انْ نَذِلَّ وَنَخْزَىٰ
we should have followed Your signs before that we met humiliation and disgrace!”
إِلَىٰ انِ ٱنْتَهَيْتَ بِٱلامْرِ إِلَىٰ حَبِيبِكَ وَنَجِيبِكَ مُحَمَّدٍ
You then ended the matter with Your most-beloved and well-select one, Muhammad,
صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ
may Allah bless him and his Household.
فَكَانَ كَمَا ٱنْتَجَبْتَهُ
He was—as exactly as You have chosen—
سَيِّدَ مَنْ خَلَقْتَهُ
the master of all those whom You created,
وَصَفْوَةَ مَنِ ٱصْطَفَيْتَهُ
the best of all those whom You selected,
وَافْضَلَ مَنِ ٱجْتَبَيْتَهُ
the most favorite of all those whom You pointed out,
وَاكْرَمَ مَنِ ٱعْتَمَدْتَهُ
and the noblest of all those on whom You decided.
قَدَّمْتَهُ عَلَىٰ انْبِيَائِكَ
So, You preferred him to Your prophets,
وَبَعَثْتَهُ إِِلَىٰ ٱلثَّقَلَيْنِ مِنْ عِبَادِكَ
sent him to the two dependents (men and jinn) from Your servants,
وَاوْطَاتَهُ مَشَارِقَكَ وَمَغَارِبَكَ
enabled him to tread on the east and the west of Your lands,
وَسَخَّرْتَ لَهُ ٱلْبُرَاقَ
made subservient to him the Buraq (the celestial sumpter),
وَعَرَجْتَ بِرُوْحِهِ إِلَىٰ سَمَائِكَ
raised his soul to Your heavens,
وَاوْدَعْتَهُ عِلْمَ مَا كَانَ
and entrusted with him the knowledge of whatever passed
وَمَا يَكُونُ إِِلَىٰ ٱنْقِضَاءِ خَلْقِكَ
and whatever shall come to pass up to the extinction of Your creatures.
ثُمَّ نَصَرْتَهُ بِٱلرُّعْبِ
You then granted him victory by means of awe & majesty
وَحَفَفْتَهُ بِجَبْرَئِيلَ وَمِيكَائِيلَ
ordered (Archangels) Gabriel and Michael
وَٱلْمُسَوِّمِينَ مِنْ مَلاَئِكَتِكَ
as well as the marked angels to surround him,
وَوَعَدْتَهُ انْ تُظْهِرَ دِينَهُ عَلَىٰ ٱلدِّينِ كُلِّهِ
and promised him to make his faith prevail all other faiths
وَلَوْ كَرِهَ ٱلْمُشْرِكُونَ
however much the polytheists may be averse.
وَذٰلِكَ بَعْدَ انْ بَوَّاتَهُ مُبَوَّا صِدْقٍ مِنْ اهْلِهِ
You did all that after You had settled him in an honest position among his people,
وَجَعَلْتَ لَهُ وَلَهُمْ اوَّلَ بَيْتٍ
made for him and them the first house
وُضِعَ لِلنَّاسِ لَلَّذي بِبَكَّةَ
ever located for the people; that is the house in Bakkah,
مُبَارَكاً وَهُدىًٰ لِلْعَالَمينَ
blessed and guidance for the worlds.
فِيهِ آيَاتٌ بَيِّنَاتٌ
In it, there are clear-cut proofs.
مَقَامُ إِِبْرَاهِيمَ
It is the standing-place of Abraham,
وَمَنْ دَخَلَهُ كَانَ آمِناً
and whoever enters it will be secured.
وَقُلْتَ «إِِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ ٱللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنْكُمُ ٱلرِّجْسَ
You also said, “Allah only desires to keep away the uncleanness from you,
اهْلَ ٱلْبَيْتِ
O people of the House,
وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيراً.»
and to purify you a thorough purifying.”
ثُمَّ جَعَلْتَ اجْرَ مُحَمَّدٍ
You then decided the reward of Muhammad,
صَلَوَاتُكَ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ
Your blessings be upon him and his Household,
مَوَدَّتَهُمْ فِي كِتَابِكَ
to be the love for them; as in Your Book
فَقُلْتَ «قُلْ لاََ اسْالُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ اجْراً
You said, “Say: I do not ask of you any reward for it
إِِلاَّ ٱلْمَوَدَّةَ فِي ٱلْقُرْبَىٰ.»
but love for my near relatives.”
وَقُلْتَ «مَا سَالْتُكُمْ مِنْ اجْرٍ فَهُوَ لَكُمْ.»
You also said, “Whatever reward I have asked of you, that is only for yourselves.”
وَقُلْتَ «مَا اسْالُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ اجْرٍ
You also said, “I do not ask you aught in return
إِلاَّ مَنْ شَاءَ انْ يَتَّخِذَ إِلَىٰ رَبِّهِ سَبِيلاًَ.»
except that he who wills, may take the way to his Lord.”
فَكَانُوٱ هُمُ ٱلسَّبِيلَ إِِلَيْكَ
They (i.e. the Prophet’s Household) have therefore been the way to You
وَٱلْمَسْلَكَ إِلَىٰ رِضْوَانِكَ
and the course to Your pleasure.
فَلَمَّا ٱنْقَضَتْ ايَّامُهُ
When his (i.e. the Prophet) days passed,
اقَامَ وَلِيَّهُ عَلِيَّ بْنَ ابِي طَالِبٍ
he appointed as successor his vicegerent `Ali the son of Abu-Talib,
صَلَوَاتُكَ عَلَيْهِمَا وَآلِهِمَا هَادِياً
Your blessings be upon both of them and their Household,
إِِذْ كَانَ هُوَ ٱلْمُنْذِرَ
because he (the Prophet) was the warner
وَلِكُلِّ قَوْمٍ هَادٍ
and `Ali was the guide for every people.
فَقَالَ وَٱلْمَلَا امَامَهُ:
So, he (the Prophet) said in the presence of the people,
”مَنْ كُنْتُ مَوْلاَهُ
“As for each one who has taken me as his master,
فَعَلِيٌّ مَوْلاَهُ
`Ali is now his master.
اَللَّهُمَّ وَالِ مَنْ وَالاَهُ
O Allah, guard any one who is loyal to `Ali,
وَعَادِ مَنْ عَادَاهُ
be the enemy of any one who antagonizes him,
وَٱنْصُرْ مَنْ نَصَرَهُ
support any one who supports him,
وَٱخْذُلْ مَنْ خَذَلَهُ.“
and disappoint any one who disappoints him.”
وَقَالَ: ”مَنْ كُنْتُ انَا نَبِيَّهُ فَعَلِيٌّ امِيرُهُ.“
He also said, “As for any one who has considered me as his Prophet, `Ali is now his commander.”
وَقَالَ: ”انَا وَعَلِيٌّ مِنْ شَجَرَةٍ وَاحِدَةٍ
He also said, “`Ali and I are of the same tree,
وَسَائِرُ ٱلنَّاسِ مِنْ شَجَرٍ شَتَّىٰ.“
while all the other peoples are from various trees.”
وَاحَلَّهُ مَحَلَّ هَارُونَ مِنْ مُوسَىٰ
He endued him (i.e. `Ali) with the position that (Prophet) Aaron had with regard to (Prophet) Moses,
فَقَالَ لَهُ: ”انْتَ مِنِّي بِمَنْزِلَةِ هَارُونَ مِنْ مُوسَىٰ
saying, “Your position to me is as same as Aaron’s position to Moses (in every thing)
إِلاَّ انَّهُ لاََ نَبِيَّ بَعْدِي.“
except that there shall be no prophet after me.”
وَزَوَّجَهُ ٱبْنَتَهُ سَيِّدَةَ نِسَاءِ ٱلْعَالَمِينَ
He gave him in marriage his daughter the doyenne of the women of the worlds.
وَاحَلَّ لَهُ مِنْ مَسْجِدِهِ مَا حَلَّ لَهُ
He allowed him (alone) to do whatever he himself is allowed to do in his Mosque.
وَسَدَّ ٱلابْوَابَ إِِلاَّ بَابَهُ
He closed all the doors (to the Mosque) except his (i.e. `Ali) door.
ثُمَّ اوْدَعَهُ عِلْمَهُ وَحِكْمَتَهُ
He then entrusted with him his knowledge and his wisdom,
فَقَالَ: ”انَا مَدِينَةُ ٱلْعِلْمِ
saying, “I am the city of knowledge,
وَعَلِيٌّ بَابُهَا
and `Ali is its door.
فَمَنْ ارَادَ ٱلْمَدِينَةَ وَٱلْحِكْمَةَ
So, whoever wants this city and wisdom,
فَلْيَاتِهَا مِنْ بَابِهَا.“
must come to it from its door.”
ثُمَّ قَالَ: ”انْتَ اخِي وَوَصِيِّي وَوَارِثِي
He then said (to `Ali), “You are my brother, successor, and inheritor.
لَحْمُكَ مِنْ لَحْمِي
Your flesh is part of my flesh,
وَدَمُكَ مِنْ دَمِي
your blood is part of my blood,
وَسِلْمُكَ سِلْمِي
your peace is my peace,
وَحَرْبُكَ حَرْبِي
your war is my war,
وَٱلإِيـمَانُ مُخَالِطٌ لَحْمَكَ وَدَمَكَ
and faith is mixed with your flesh and blood
كَمَا خَالَطَ لَحْمِي وَدَمِي
as same as it is mixed with my flesh and blood.
وَانْتَ غَداً عَلَىٰ الْحَوْضِ خَلِيفَتِي
On the morrow, you shall be my vicegerent on the (Divine) Pond.
وَانْتَ تَقْضِي دَيْنِي
You also settle my debts
وَتُنْجِزُ عِدَاتِي
and fulfill my commitments.
وَشِيعَتُكَ عَلَىٰ مَنَابِرَ مِنْ نُورٍ
Your Shi`ah (i.e. adherents) shall be on pulpits of light,
مُبْيَضَّةً وُجُوهُهُمْ حَوْلِي فِي ٱلْجَنَّةِ
white-faced, around me in Paradise.
وَهُمْ جِيرَانِي
They are my neighbors (therein).
وَلَوْلاَ انْتَ يَا عَلِيُّ
Were it not for you `Ali,
لَمْ يُعْرَفِ ٱلْمُؤْمِنُونَ بَعْدِي.“
true believers would not be recognized after me.”
وَكَانَ بَعْدَهُ هُدىٰ مِنَ ٱلضَّلاَلِ
Hence, he (i.e. `Ali), after the Prophet, was true guidance against straying off,
وَنُوراً مِنَ ٱلْعَمَىٰ
light against blindness,
وَحَبْلَ ٱللَّهِ ٱلْمَتِينَ
the firmest rope of Allah,
وَصِرَاطَهُ ٱلْمُسْتَقِيمَ
and His straight path.
لاََ يُسْبَقُ بِقَرَابَةٍ فِي رَحِمٍ
None would precede him in blood relation (with the Prophet)
وَلاَ بِسَابِقَةٍ فِي دِينٍ
or any priority in a religious affair,
وَلاَ يُلْحَقُ فِي مَنْقَبَةٍ مِنْ مَنَاقِبِهِ
and none would ever match him in any item of virtue.
يَحْذُو حَذْوَ ٱلرَّسُولِ
He patterned after the Messenger,
صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهِمَا وَآلِهِمَا
may Allah’s blessings be upon both of them and their Household.
وَيُقَاتِلُ عَلَىٰ ٱلتَّاوِيلِ
He fought for the sake of true interpretation (of the Qur’an).
وَلاَ تَاخُذُهُ فِي ٱللَّهِ لَوْمَةُ لاَئِمٍ
The blame of any blamer would never stop him from doing anything for the sake of Allah.
قَدْ وَتَرَ فِيهِ صَنَادِيدَ ٱلْعَرَبِ
He thus exterminated the villains of the Arabs,
وَقَتَلَ ابْطَالَهُمْ
killed their heroes,
وَنَاوَشَ ذُؤْبَانَهُمْ
and eradicated their ferocious fighters.
فَاوْدَعَ قُلُوبَهُمْ احْقَاداً
He therefore filled in their hearts with malice
بَدْرِيَّةً وَخَيْبَرِيَّةً وَحُنَيْنِيَّةً وَغَيْرَهُنَّ
from the battles of Badr, Khaybar, and Hunayn as well as others.
فَاضَبَّتْ عَلَىٰ عَدَاوَتِهِ
Therefore, they clang inseparably to opposing him
وَاكَبَّتْ عَلَىٰ مُنَابَذَتِهِ
and attached upon dissenting him
حَتَّىٰ قَتَلَ ٱلنَّاكِثِينَ وَٱلْقَاسِطِينَ وَٱلْمَارِقِينَ
until he had to kill the preachers, the unjust, and the apostates.
وَلَمَّا قَضَىٰ نَحْبَهُ
When he passed away
وَقَتَلَهُ اشْقَىٰ ٱلآخِرِينَ يَتْبَعُ اشْقَىٰ ٱلاوَّلِينَ
and he was killed by the most miserable of all of the late generations who will be attached to the most miserable of the past generations,
لَمْ يُمْتَثَلْ امْرُ رَسُولِ ٱللَّهِ
the decree of Allah’s Messenger,
صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ
may Allah bless him and his Household,
فِي ٱلْهَادِينَ بَعْدَ ٱلْهَادِينَ
about the leadership of the successive guiding ones was not carried out;
وَٱلامَّةُ مُصِرَّةٌ عَلَىٰ مَقْتِهِ
rather, the people insisted on detesting him
مُجْتَمِعَةٌ عَلَىٰ قَطِيعَةِ رَحِمِهِ
and agreed unanimously on rupturing their relations with him
وَإِِقْصَاءِ وُلْدِهِ
and moving away his descendants (from leadership),
إِِلاَّ ٱلْقَلِيلَ مِمَّنْ وَفَىٰ لِرِعَايَةِ ٱلْحَقِّ فِيهِمْ
except for a few ones who fulfilled the duty of observing their rights.
فَقُتِلَ مَنْ قُتِلَ
Many (of `Ali’s descendants) were therefore slain,
وَسُبِيَ مَنْ سُبِيَ
many others were taken as captives,
وَاقْصِيَ مَنْ اقْصِيَ
and many others were banished.
وَجَرَىٰ ٱلْقَضَاءُ لَهُمْ
Decrees were thus applied to them
بِمَا يُرْجَىٰ لَهُ حُسْنُ ٱلْمَثُوبَةِ
in a form expected to grant them excellent reward for that.
إِِذْ كَانَتِ ٱلارْضُ لِلَّهِ
Verily, the earth is Allah’s;
يُورِثُهَا مَنْ يَشَاءُ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ
He gives it in inheritance to whomever of His servants that He wishes;
وَٱلْعَاقِبَةُ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ
and the end result shall be for the pious.
وَسُبْحَانَ رَبِّنَا
All glory be to our Lord.
إِِنْ كَانَ وَعْدُ رَبِّنَا لَمَفْعُولاًَ
Most certainly, the promise of our Lord shall come to pass.
وَلَنْ يُخْلِفَ ٱللَّهُ وَعْدَهُ
Allah shall never fail to fulfill His promise.
وَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلْحَكِيمُ
He is the Almighty, the All-wise.
فَعَلَىٰ ٱلاطَائِبِ مِنْ اهْلِ بَيْتِ مُحَمَّد وَعَلِيٍّ
For the immaculate ones from the household of Muhammad and `Ali,
صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهِمَا وَآلِهِمَا
may Allah bless both of them and their household,
فَلْيَبْكِ ٱلْبَاكُونَ
let weepers weep.
وَإِِيَّاهُمْ فَلْيَنْدُبِ ٱلنَّادِبُونَ
For them too, let lamenters lament.
وَلِمِثْلِهِمْ فَلْتَذْرِفِ ٱلدُّمُوعُ
For the like of them, let tears be shed,
وَلْيَصْرُخِ ٱلصَّارِخُونَ
screamers scream,
وَيَضِجَّ ٱلضَّاجُّونَ
yellers yell,
وَيَعِجَّ ٱلْعَاجُّوَنَ
and wailers wail.
ايْنَ ٱلْحَسَنُ ايْنَ ٱلْحُسَيْنُ
Where is al-Hasan? Where is al-Husayn?
ايْنَ ابْنَاءُ ٱلْحُسَيْنِ
Where are the sons of al-Husayn;
