15th of Shaban 1430 A.H. Mubrak...Areeza for You

AsSalam-o-Alaikum, 15th of Shaban 1430 A.H. – Zahoor-e-pur noor of the last Wasi of Prophet Mohammad(sawaw), Allah(swt) hujjat on earth and the Imam-e-Asr waz-Zaman, Imam Mohammad Mehdi(atfs) ibn-e-Imam Hasan Askari(a.s.). On this occasion of happiness, I wish to extend my profound felicitations and greetings to the Prophet Mohammad(sawaw), Imam-e-Zamana(a.s.), the Ahl-e-Bait(a.s.) and to all Momineen and Mominaat. Here is Areeza for you. Please make sure to send your Hajat (your wishes) to our beloved Imam. Ask people who don't have printed areeza with them - you copy from here and give them prints. Towards the end of the night, Momineen and Mominaat usually present their griefs, worries and desires to the last Imam Mohammad Mehdi(a.s.) called "AREEZA" which is in fact a letter to the Imam(a.s.). This letter is written with a lot of love and affection using Safron as ink and is traditionally wrapped up in flour or pure soil and sprinkled with scents (Itar) and is thrown in a river with the intention that it reaches our beloved Imam-e-Zamana(a.s.). In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful. I have written to you O my Master, may His mercy and blessing be on you, seeking a favour from you. I have complained to you for what has happened to me seeking solutions firstly from Allah and then from you for a matter that has obsessed me. I am helpless in combating the problem and for that I have resorted to seeking help from Allah and from you, knowing the status you have with Allah. I am confident that you will help me get the solution to my problems swiftly and that you will intercede on my behalf. I am helpless and moreover I am sinful, so help O my master and present this problem to Allah and I pray to Him that He will solve this quickly and grant me victory and success in finding the solution to my problems. (Write your hajjat here) am not able to carry or bear with it. Although I am responsible for the increase of my sins and ignorant about my responsibilities ( Wajibats ) from Allah which are given to me. So help me O my Master peace be upon you during this time of problems and sorrow present my prayers to Allah before I compensate and before my enemies engulfs me, for you have shown me your blessings. So I pray to Allah for great salvation and near victory with calmness from fears. For all Allah is most high and does what he wants. Allah is sufficient for me from the beginning and in my hopes. Whatever Allah wishes there is no strength nor any power except in Allah the high, the great. (When dropping the Ariza in the sea, we normally recite the following addressing Husayn bin Rawh, the third Naib of the 12th Imam A.S. ) O Husayn bin Rawh, Salamun Alaykum, I bear witness you died in the path of Allah and ( hence ) you are alive and are sustained by Allah I am addressing you in your "life"which you lead with Allah - this is my note and wishes to the Master of the Era (the 12th Imam A.S). So please hand it over to him for you are indeed trustworthy।
