Dua al-Faraj
Dua al-Faraj (Arabic: دعاء الفرج) supplication for relief, is a supplication which begins with the phrase «إلهی عَظُمَ البَلاء» O my God! Adversities have escalated!.

Du'a' al-Faraj (Arabic: دعاء الفرج) [supplication for relief] is a supplication which begins with the phrase «إلهی عَظُمَ البَلاء» [O my God! Adversities have escalated!]. This supplication was first mentioned in the book of "Kunooz al-Najaah" by Shaykh Tabarsi[the renowned commentator of the Holy Quran] and it has been quoted in works such as Wasa'il al-Shi'a (by Al-Shaykh al-Hurr al-'Amili) and Jamal al-usbu' (by Al-Sayyid ibn Tawus).
It is said that, ‘Faraj supplication was taught by Imam Mahdi (Ajal allahu ta'ala farajaho shareef) to Abul Hasan Muhammad Ibn Ahmad Ibn Abi al-Lais in the city of Baghdad at the Graves of Quraish [Kadhimiya], where the latter had taken refuge, due to fear of death. On account of the blessings of this supplication, he was saved.

The supplication of Faraj is one of the Ta'qibat [Follow-ups] of the prayer[Salat] of Imam Zaman (Ajal allahu ta'ala farajaho shareef) and In Ibn al-Mashhadi 's al-Mazar al-kabir , Includ practices upon ziyarah the Sardab al-Ghaybt of Imam al-Mahdi (Ajal allahu ta'ala farajaho shareef) , first there is a ziyarah , then a two-rak'a prayer and then, Faraj supplication.

Hujjat Allah ibn al-Hasan Imam al-Mahdi (Ajal allahu ta'ala farajaho shareef) said:

أكْثِرُواالدُّعاءَ بِتَعْجيلِ الْفَرَجِ، فَإنَّ ذلِكَ فَرَجَكُمْ.
Pray[Dua] a lot to hasten my Faraj in any suitable situation, that my Faraj will be the solution of your problems.

Du'a' al-Faraj

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحٖیمِ
In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.إِلٰهٖي عَظُمَ الْبَلآٰءُ، وَ بَرِحَ الْخَفآٰءُ،
O my Lord! The calamity has aggravated; the absence prolonged; وَ انْکَشَفَ الْغِطآٰءُ، وَ انْقَطَعَ الرَّجآٰءُ،
The curtain of modesty has been lifted; hope has been curtailed; وَ ضاٰقَتِ الْأَرْضُ، وَ مُنِعَتِ السَّماٰءُ،
The earth has been narrow; and sky has been denied.وَ أَنْتَ الْمُسْتَعاٰنُ، وَ إِلَيْکَ الْمُشْتَکٰی،
And You are the One from whom help is sought and complaints are made وَ عَلَيْکَ الْمُعَوَّلُ فِی الشِّدَّةِ وَ الرَّخاٰءِ،
And in You we trust in the times of difficulty. اَللّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ،
O Allah! Send blessings upon Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him and his progeny) and the progeny of Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him and his progeny), أُولِی الْأَمْرِ الَّذٖينَ فَرَضْتَ عَلَيْناٰ طاٰعَتَهُمْ،
The possessors of authority whose obedience you have enjoined upon us وَ عَرَّفْتَناٰ بِذٰلِکَ مَنْزِلَتَهُمْ، فَفَرِّجْ عَنّاٰ بِحَقِّهِمْ فَرَجاً عاٰجِلًا قَرٖيباً، کَلَمْحِ الْبَصَرِ أَوْ هُوَ أَقْرَبُ،
And by that made us aware of their position. Then make open for us, by their truth, an immediate opening, immediate as a wink or sooner. ياٰ مُحَمَّدُ ياٰ عَلٖيُّ، ياٰ عَلٖيُّ یاٰ مُحَمَّدُ،
O Muhammad! O ‘Ali! O ‘Ali! O Muhammad! اِکْفِياٰنٖي فَإِنَّکُماٰ کاٰفٖياٰنِ، وَ انْصُراٰنٖي فَإِنَّکُماٰ ناٰصِراٰنِ،
Suffice me both of you as both of you are sufficient. Help me—two of you—for you are my helpers. ياٰ مَوْلاٰناٰ ياٰ صاٰحِبَ الزَّماٰنِ،
O our Master (Imam Mahdi(Ajal allahu ta'ala farajaho shareef)), Oh Sahib al-Zaman (O Master of the Time!)اَلْغَوْثَ اَلْغَوْثَ اَلْغَوْثَ،
Help! Help! Help! أَدْرِکنٖي أَدْرِکنٖي أَدْرِکنٖي،
Rescue me! Rescue me! Rescue me! اَلسّاٰعَةَ اَلسّاٰعَةَ اَلسّاٰعَةَ،
This moment! This moment! This moment! اَلْعَجَلَ اَلْعَجَلَ اَلْعَجَلَ،
Hasten, hasten, hasten! ياٰ أَرْحَمَ الرّاٰحِمٖينَ، بِحَقِّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ الطّاٰهِرٖينَ
O Most Merciful of the Merciful, For the sake of Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him and his progeny) and his holy progeny.
