Question 529: If Nade Ali Kabeer and Sagheer are true hadith then kindly share the duas reference and health authentication. Thanks in advance.

Answer 529: Nade Ali is the title for two duas begin with NADE ALI-YAN MAZHARAL AJAA’IB. Nade Ali Kabeer and Nade Ali Sagheer.

Nade Ali Sagheer is the poetry that begins with “Nade ali-yan mazharal ajaa’ib”. According to Maibodi, one of the Diwan (also known as Dua’ ‘Ali) of Imam Ali’s (as) commentator of Ahlul Sunna, the Holy Prophet (PBUH) called on the day (of the battle) of Uhud as follows:

Call Ali, who is Manifestor of wonders, Thou shall surely find him helper in your difficulties

All grief and Sorrows will disappear, By Thee by Thy granted Power & Authority of Wail, O! Ali, O Ali, O! Ali.[1]

Arabic version of Nade Ali Saghir:

“ناد علیا مظهر العجائب * تجده عونا لک فی النّوائب

کلّ غمٍّ و هَمٍّ سَینجَلی* بِوَلایَتِکَ یا علیّ یا علی یا علی.”

According to Nasekh al-Tawarikh, Allah (SWT) has addressed the holy Prophet (PBUH) by the above mentioned verses of the poetry on the day (of the battle) of Uhud.[2]

In Mustadrak al-Wasael Muhadith Noori said: I saw a handwriting of Shahid Awwal (the First martyr) in which this Dua has been written for finding  lost thing and escaped slave.[3]

Nade Ali Kabeer is as follows:

Arabic version of this Dua:

بِسمِ اللهِ الرَّحمن الرَّحیم

نادِ عَلیاً مَظهَرَ العَجائِب تَجِدهُ عَوناً لَکَ فِی النَوّائِب لی اِلی اللهِ حاجَتی

وَ عَلَیهِ مُعَوَّلی کُلَّما اَمَرتَهُ وَ رَمَیتَ مُنقَضی فی ظِللّ اللهِ وَ یضِللُ اللهُ لی

اَدعُوکَ کُلَّ هَمٍ وَغَمًّ سَینجَلی بِعَظَمَتِکَ یا اللهُ بِنُبُوَّتِکَ یا مُحَمَّدَ بِوِلایتِکَ

یاعَلِی یا عَلِی یا عَلِی اَدرِکنی بِحقِّ لُطفِکَ الخَفی اللهِ اَکبَرُ اَنا مِن شَرِّ

اَعدائکَ بَریءٌ اللهُ صَمَدی مِن عِندِکَ مَدَی وَعَلَیکَ مُعتَمَدی بِحقِّ إِیاکَ نَعبُدُ

وَ إِیاکَ نَستَعینُ یااَبالغَیثِ اَغِثنی یااَبَاالَحَسَنَین اَدرِکنی یاسَیفَ اللهُ اَدرِکنی

یابابَ اللهِ اَدرِکنی یاحُجَّهَ اللهِ اَدرِکنی یا وَلِی اللهِ اَدرِکنی بِحَقَّ لُطفِکَ الخَفی

یا قَهّارُ تَقَهَّرتَ بِالقَهرِ وَ القَهر ُفی قَهرِ قَهرکَ یا قَهارُ یا قاهِرَ العَدُوّ یا واِلی الوَلِی

یامَظهَرَ العَجائِبِ یامُرتَضی عَلِی رَمَیتَ مِن بَغی عَلَی بِسَهمِ اللهِ وَسَیفِ اللهِ القاتِلِ

اُفَوَّضُ اَمری اِلی اللهِ اِنَّ اللهُ بَصَیرٌ بِالعَبادِ وَ اِلحُکُم اِلهٌ واحِدٌ لا اِلهَ اِلاّ هُوَ الرَّحمنُ الرَّحیمُ

یاغیاثَ المُستَغیینِ یا دَلیلَ المُتَحیرِینَ یا اَمانَ الخائِفینَ یا مُعینَ المُتَوَکِلینَ

یا رَاحِمَ المَساکینَ یا اِلهَ العالَمَینَ بِرَحمَتِکَ وَصَلَّی اللهُ عَلی سَیدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ وَالِهِ اَجمَعین وَ الحَمدُ اللهِ رَبِّ العالَمینَ.

There has not been mentioned in any authentic hadith saying that if you recite this abovementioned dua seven times or three times a day your duas would be granted. On the other hand we are recommended to recite those duas have been narrated by our fourteen Infallibles (pbuth). Therefore, the recommendations in which we are supposed to recite ‘Nade Ali’ as dua has no authentic sources. But, if you recite it with an intention of proximity to Allah, the Almighty in order to get rewards from Him there would be no problem in it.[4]

In this regards, there is a Hadith in which Zurarah asked Imam Sadiq (as) to teach him a dua, the Imam (as) said: the best dua is what you are saying to Allah, the Almighty.[5]

Arabic version of this Hadith:

عَنْ زُرَارَةَ قَالَ قُلْتُ لِأَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع عَلِّمْنِی دُعَاءً فَقَالَ إِنَّ أَفْضَلَ الدُّعَاءِ مَا جَرَى عَلَى لِسَانِک‏”.
