The Dua-e Ahad (Template:Lang-ar) is an Arabic language allegiance supplication prayer to Muhammad al-Mahdi, twelfth Imam of Shia Islam (the Imam Mahdi).[1]

Ja'far al-Sadiq had a hadith about important of recite the supplication in every morning. He stated that: “If one person read the supplication for 40 mornings, will be considered and accounted as helpers of Imam Mahdi and if he (she) dies before the reappearance of Muhammad al-Mahdi, Allah will raise him (her) up from the grave.”

One of the sentences of this supplication is: “O Allah! If there occurs between me and his death, which you have decreed for your servants, then raise me from my grave, wrapped in my shroud, my sword unsheathed, my spear bared, answering the call of the caller in the cities as well as the deserts.”[2][3]

In the prayer, the Shia supplicate to Allah that they see the Imam Mahdi in their life be and considering his helpers. Also, they supplicate to Allah to solve the problems of their nation and world with reappearance of Mahdi. In the end of supplication, reciter say: “Hasten! Hasten! O my Master, O Master of the era.” This phrase refers to the acceleration in the reappearance of Muhammad al-Mahdi.[4]
