|Dua Al-Iftitah (Hamid Heshmati)|
Within the words of this supplication lie invaluable lessons about the Unity of Allah swt and the status of His Final Prophet and His Progeny. It begins with a beautiful exposition of the Attributes of Allah swt, and this continues throughout various parts of the dua, providing the believer with beautiful insights about the true meaning of the Unity of Allah swt. It then moves on to praise the Prophet pbuh and his pure progeny, and ends with a prayer for the Imam of our time, and a wish that we be of those who will be honoured with his companionship. As with all other duas, there is also a declaration of the sinfulness of the believer, and a desperate plea to Allah for a portion of His Mercy and Forgiveness.
