Dua e Kumayl
About this deal
In addition to remembrance of God and asking for forgiveness, other requests include asking for sustenance, asking for protection against enemies and whoever has bad intentions, asking for love for God and so forth. However, although the sin itself may actually stop him asking for forgiveness, it is impossible for istighfar to be hindered and blocked once it is done. May Allah's blessing be upon you, O' the father of Abdullah, O' Ja'afar son of Muhammad, O' Al-Sadiq, O' the Prophet's son, O' the son of the commander of the faithful, O' Allah's proof on His creations, O' our chief and master, we concentrated, seeking for intercession and means to Allah through you, and we presented our demands in this world and in the world Hereafter before you, O' the prominent one before Allah, intercede for us before Allah.

On sighting this incident, Ibn e Hajib hid himself in a person’s house, where he filled a vessel with blood, placed something on the vessel and sat over it, to keep himself secured from the geomancy of Khwaja.Allamah al-Majlisi has quoted some considerable books to have mentioned that Muhammad ibn Babawayh reported this supplication of Seeking Intercession (Du`a' al-Tawassul) from the Holy Imams (peace be upon them).

Have I anyone except Thee from whom I can seek the dislodging of my evils and understanding of my problems?Since we do not know what is meant by these "good things" which will make God fully satisfied with us, we should not miss any opportunity to do a good thing since that particular good action may be in reality the one which pleases God. Similarly, we should make sure that our prayers reach God since there are some sins that act as obstacles in their progress towards Him (swt).
