“When My servants ask you [O Muhammad] about Me, [tell them that] I am indeed near. I answer the supplicant’s call when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me, and let them have faith in Me, so that they may be guided aright.”
(Al-Qur’an, Surah al-Baqarah (2), verse 186)
Through reading and contemplating upon the supplications contained in this book - priceless gifts and timeless gems of beauty - we appreciate how the Noble Prophet Muhammad, prayers of Allah be upon him and his family, and the immaculate Imams, peace be upon them all, have done a great favour in showing us how to connect to our Creator, for which we are eternally indebted to them. Therefore in the minimal, we are obligated to appreciate the worth of these prayers; and in our actions, we must utilize the etiquette and proper manners as recommended by them in our daily lives; and ultimately, we need to try our best to recognize Allah after which we will be able to love Him from the depths of our hearts.

In regards to the spiritual power and worth of Ṣalāt al-Ghufaylah, we have heard something to the effect that apparently Yazīd ibne Muʿāwiyah said to Imām ʿAlī ibne al-Ḥusayn as-Sajjād, “I have killed the son of the Messenger of Allāh … is it possible for me to still attain salvation?!” To this, Imām as-Sajjād has been reported to have replied, “Yes, if you perform Ṣalāt al-Ghufaylah, then you will be redeemed.” After this conversation transpired, Sayyida Zaynab binte ʿAlī said to her nephew, Imām as-Sajjād, “You are showing the means of salvation to the person who was directly responsible in the killing of your father!?” To this question from his aunt, the Imām replied, “All I have taught him is Ṣalāt al-Ghufaylah, however [I know that] Yazīd [due to him being hard-hearted] will never have the Divine providence (tawfīq) to perform this prayer.”
Is this historical event true and if so, where is this event narrated (in which books)?
