In the name of Allah the Beneficent the Merciful.
O Allah! Curse the two idols of Quraish and their two magicians, their two rebellious people, their two accusers and their two daughters. Rebuke them, they have consumed Your sustenance and have denied Your obligations, both have discarded Your commands, have rejected Your revelation, have disobeyed Your Prophet, havE destroyed Your religion, have distorted Your book, have made Your laws ineffective, have declared Your obligatory actions as incorrect, have disbelieved in Your signs, have oppressed Your friends, have loved Your enemies, have spread corruption among Your people, have made Your world occur loses.
O Allah! Send Your curses on them and their helpers as they have ruined the house of Your prophet, have dug the door of his house, broken the roof, have brought down the walls, have made the skies, the ground, have destroyed its inhabitants, have killed their supporters have put to death, their children have deserted his pulpit by his successors of knowledge, have desired his prophet hood, have ascribed a partner to their Lord, thus consider both of their sins to be great, and make their abode in ‘saqar’ forever, and do you know what is ‘saqar?’
It leaves nothing, nor let anything remain. O Allah, send Your chastisement on them to the extent of the sins of every disobedient, and the covering of truth, and all the pupils where they have gone, and the believer whom they have harmed and the disbeliever whom they have loved,
and to the number of pious people whom they have troubled, and whom they have driven out of their cities, and helped the disbelievers, and the Imam on whom they were cruel and have changed the obligatory laws, and have destroyed the practice of the Holy Prophet, and whatever evils they have concealed, the blood which they shed, have changed the goodness and have altered the commands, have created disbelief, or the lie for which they have cheated, the inheritance which they have plundered, and stopped the booties from them and have consumed the prohibited wealth,
and that ‘Khums’ (the fifth part) which they considered as permitted for them, and that evil whose foundation were put, and that cruelty which they made common, that oppression, which they spread, those promises, which they dishonored, those covenant which they broke, those lawful which is termed as unlawful, and that unlawful which is termed as lawful,
that hypocrisy which they have concealed in the hearts, and to the amount of treachery which they bore in their hearts, and those stomach which they have split open, and that ‘pahlu’ which they broke, and that door which they broke-opened, and those gatherings which they dispersed and those degraded whom they gave honor, and those honourable whom they insulted,
and by the number of rights which they have usurped, and the order of Imam which they opposed, bestow Your wrath on them to the extent of the atrocities.
O Allah! Your curses on them to the extent of alteration in Quran and covering the truth, rendering the will, worthless, and breaking the promises, and declaring all the claims as void, refusing all the allegiances, presenting excuses, introducing breach of trust, climbing of hills and to the nuer of vessel which they turned upside down and all that defects which they possessed. Bestow Your curses on them.
O Allah curse those two, secretly and openly, such a beating which is forever continuous, nonstop and innumerable. Such a whipping which commences in the morning but does not ends at night.
Such a beating should be on those tyrants, and their helpers, their assistance, their friends and their lovers, those attracted to them and those who acknowledge their deeds, those who present proof for them, and those who follow their words, and those who approve their actions.
(Then recite four times).
O Allah! Send such a harsh chastisement upon them, that the dwellers of Hell start screaming, O Lord of the Universe accept this prayer from me.

َثم قل أربع مرات
اَللّٰہُمَّ عَذِّبْہُمْ عَذَابًا یَسْتَغِیْثُ مِنْہُ اَہْلُ النَّارِ اٰمِیْنَ رَبَّ الْعَالَمِیْنَ.
Introduction & Merits of Recitation:
The prayer of Sanam-e-Quraish (the idols of Quraish) is a very authentic supplication of Amir-ulMomineen Hazrat Ali bin Abi Talib asws and it has been recognised by all renowned Shia historians as such.
It has been narrated by Abdullah bin Abbasra that one night I went to the Masjid-e-Nabbivi saww to offer my late-night prayers and saw Amir-ul-Momineen asws offering his supplications. I decided to sit in a corner and listen to Mola Ali asws’s recitation of Quran and prayers. After completing Salat (late night prayers, shafa and witr) , Mola asws recited supplications which I had never heard before. Later, I approached Imam Aliasws and said may I be your ransom; please tell me more about those prayers which I have never heard before.
Mola Ali asws then replied, it was ‘Dua-e-Sanam-e-Quraish’ and added, I swear to Allah azwj who owns the lives of Mohammad saww and Ali asws, whosoever would recite this prayer will get an extraordinary reward from the Lord; similar to assisting Prophet Mohammad saww during the battles of ‘Ohad, Badar, Hunain and Tabuuq’ and would achieve the martyred status in the presence of the Prophet saww. And the reward of 100 Hajj and Umara as an associate of Prophet Mohammad saww as well as ‘Sawab’ of 1000 months of fasting. In addition, one will be on the side of Rasool-Allah saww and Aimah Masomeen asws on the Day of Judgement and Allah will forgive all his/her sins, despite the fact if his/her had committed sins are equivalent to the stars in the sky, grains of sand in the wilderness and leaves of all trees. Also the one who recites it will be saved from punishment in the grave, and a window from heaven will be installed in his/her grave.
Insha’Allah, prayers will be rewarded, through the sanctity of the supplication, and Oh! Ibn e Abbas if any of our friends is, in particular, engulfed by hardship, he/she would surely find a refuge through recitation of this prayer.
Ref: Misbah Kafami Page 552 Bihar ul Anwaar vol 82/85 page 260
Another narration from Imam Ali as says: “He who recites this Du’a is (in terms of reward) like a marksman who have shot 1000 arrows in the battle of Badr and Uhud beside the Prophet saww.”-Mustadrak al-Wasa’il, v4, p405, Hadith #5021- Bihar al-Anwar, v82/85, p260, Hadith #5
The Arabic text of the Dua given in this book is taken from Misbah al Kafami (page 552) and Bihar ul Anwaar ( Vol 82, Page 260). This is the complete Dua as narrated by Amirul Momineen as and it is worth mentioning here that the rest of the portion given in most of the books has been added by Ibn-e-Taus.
Also this Dua-e-Sanamae Quraish (sanama=idols) can be found in Sahife Alawiya [dua no. # 120]
