The Importance of the Dua Jawshan KabiR: Jawshan Kabeer (Arabic: جَوْشَن ٱلْكَبِير) is a long Shia Islamic prayer that contains 1001 names and attributes of God. Jawshan means “steel plate” or “mail” and thus the name of the prayer refers to Muhammad’s heavy armor in battle.
Dua Jawshan Kabir, literally Great Armor, has been narrated from Prophet Muhammad (s). In his beautiful introduction to this dua, the late Shaykh ‘Abbas Qummi writes,
[This dua] is mentioned in the books, al-Balad al- Amin and al-Misbah of al-Kafa’mi. It is related from Imam ‘Ali ibn al-Husayn Sayyid al-Sajidin from his father from his grandfather, the Prophet of Allah, who received it from the Angel Gabriel during one of the battles. [In that battle] the Prophet had a very heavy coat of armor on to protect himself. The coat was so heavy that it was hurting the Prophet’s body. In this state, the Angel Gabriel came to the Prophet and said, “O Muhammad! Your Lord conveys his salutations to you and tells you to take out this coat of armor (jawshan) and to recite this dua [instead], as it is a protection for you and your Ummah.”1 (Qummi 1994, 86)
At this point, the Angel continued to explain the greatness of this supplication to the Prophet. Our limited space does not allow us to quote the entire narration here. However, it suffices us to mention that, according to this narration, whoever writes down this dua on his kafan (burial shroud), God will not lead him to the hellfire and whoever recites this dua with a pure intention in the beginning of the month of Ramadan, God will grant him success to witness the Night of Qadr and will create for him seventy thousand angels, all of whom will be busy praising and glorifying God. The rewards of this praise and glorification will be given to the person who recited this supplication.
In addition, it is mentioned that whoever reads this supplication three times during the month of Ramadan, God will make the hellfire forbidden to him and will make it certain for him to enter Paradise. For such a person, God will also appoint two Angels to protect him from all evils in this world. Imam Husayn ibn ‘Ali (a), also, has reportedly said, “My father Amir al-Mu’minin ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (a) bequeathed to me that I should memorize and protect this supplication, write it on his kafan, and teach it to my family members, encouraging them to recite it, as it contains one thousand names of God, among which is the Greatest Name (Ism al-A’zam)” (Qummi 1994, 86-7).
Shaykh ‘Abbas Qummi then explains that he has not found any narration to the effect that this dua must be recited particularly on the Night of Qadr. However, it could be argued that because it was recommended to recite this dua three times in the month of Ramadan, people gradually over the centuries appropriated the three famous nights (one of which is considered as the night of Qadr) for recitation of this dua. Besides, as Shaykh ‘Abbas mentions, the fact that ‘Allama Majlisi, in his Zad al-Ma’ad, has included the recitation of this dua among the rituals of this night suffices us to believe that reciting the supplication of Jawshan Kabir is specially recommended on these three nights.
