  1. AAMAL ACCORDING TO ROMAN CALENDAR In this section, I will mention only the recommended acts that are mentioned in the book of Zad al-Ma’ad. RAINWATER OF APRIL Sayyid Ibn Tawus, the supreme scholar, has narrated that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.), once, joined a group of his companions who were sitting in a session. He greeted them and they responded. He then said, “Do you mind if I tell you about a medicine, conveyed to me by Archangel Gabriel, that I will not need any of the ordinary medicines if I use it?” (Imam) Ali, Salman, and others asked, “What medicine is that?” Addressing his words to Imam Ali, the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) answered, “You should collect the rainwater of April and recite on it Surah al-Faatehah, Ayah al-Kursi, Surah al-Tawheed, Surah al-Falaq, Surah al-Nas, and Surah al-Kafirun each one seventy times. [According to another narration, Surah al-Qadr, the statement Allahu-akbar (Allah is the Greatest), the statement la-ilaha-illal-lah (There is no god but Allah), and the invocation of blessings upon the Holy Prophet and his Household –i.e. Allahumma salli ‘alaMuhammadin waali Muhammad- all these are added, each one seventy times] Then, you should drink from that rainfall for seven successive days every morning and evening. I swear by Him Who has chosen me as prophet of the Truth, Archangel Gabriel has told me that Almighty Allah will remove from whoever drinks from that water every physical defect, will make well his body, bones, and all organs, will erase that (tribulation) from the Reserved Tablet (al-lawh al-mahfuz). I swear by Him Who has chosen me as prophet of the Truth, if one who has not been yet given offspring drinks from that water, he will be given offspring; and if a barren woman drinks from that water, Almighty Allah will give her a baby and she will bear a fetus of the sex she likes (i.e. male or female). Corroborating this, the Holy Qur’an reads, ‘He bestows (children) male or female according to His Will (and Plan) or He bestows both males and females, and He leaves barren whom He will. 42/50’If a headache infected one drinks from that water, his headache will remove by the will of Almighty Allah. One is infected in his eye may drop from that water in his eye, drink from it, and wash his eye with it. Besides, this water strengthens the teeth ridge, makes the mouth smell good, stops saliva that comes from the teeth ridge, stops phlegm, indigestion, gases, backache, stomach troubles, flue complications, toothache, belly troubles, and larvae, dispenses of cupping, saves from hemorrhoids, scratching, measles, lunacy, leprosy, elephantiasis, nosebleed, nausea, blindness, dumbness, deafness, lameness, aqueous humor, diseases spoiling prayers and fasting, and devilish inspirations.” The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) then added, “Archangel Gabriel said to me, ‘Whoever drinks from that water, will be completely cured even if he is infected by all diseases in the world. I swear by Him Who has sent you with the truth, if one recites these verses on this rainwater and drinks from it, Almighty Allah will fill his heart with illumination and light, cast inspiration in his intellect, make wisdom flow on his tongue, load his mind with understanding and discerning, bestow upon him with conferrals that He has not given to any of His beings, send to him one thousand items of forgiveness and one thousand items of mercy, and dismiss cheating, betrayal, backbiting, envy, oppression, arrogance, stinginess, parsimony, rage, enmity, malice, calumny, and slander out of his heart.’ In brief, this rainwater is the remedy of all maladies.” In fact, this famous narration is reported from ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar; therefore, its chain of authority is considered doubtful. Yet, I have found the same narration handwritten by Shaykh al-Shahid on the authority of Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) with the same advantages and recitations except that the order is as follows: In April, you may collect rainwater and recite on it Surah al-Faatehah, Ayah al-Kursi, Surah al-Kafirun, Surah al-A’la, Surah al-Falaq, Surah al-Nas, and Surah al-Tawheed each one seventy times. Then, repeat the following invocations and doxological statements seventy times each: “Allahumma salli ‘alaMuhammadin waali Muhammad”, “subhanallahi wal-hamdulillahi wala-ilaha-illAllahu wAllahu akbar.” In addition to the previous effects, it has been narrated that if a prisoner drinks from that water, he will be released; and drinking from this rainwater saves from frigidity. Generally speaking, rainwater, whether collected in April or any other month, is blessed and effective. This meaning is confirmed by Imam Ali(a.s.) whom is reported to have said, “Drink from rainwater, for it purifies the bodies and removes maladies.” Confirming this, Almighty Allah says, “He sent down water from the sky upon you that thereby He might purify you and remove from you the fear of Satan and make strong your hearts and firm your feet thereby. (8:11)” When a group of people gather for reciting these Surahs and statements, it is highly recommended that each individual repeats these Surahs and statements seventy times alone since effects and rewards will be greater for those who recite directly. It is worth mentioning that April, which is thirty days, begins eleven days after the vernal equinox. JUNE Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) is reported to have said, “Do not omit cupping in June. If you miss it, try to do it on the fourteenth of it.” June is also thirty days. It begins seventy-one days after the vernal equinox. June is an inauspicious month, as is confirmed by Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) who is reported to have said to those who mentioned June before him, “In this month, (Prophet) Moses invoked Almighty Allah’s curse upon the Israelites; therefore, three hundred thousands Israelites died in a single day and night.” According to another considerable narration, Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) said, “Verily, Almighty Allah expedites deaths in June.” It is worth mentioning that the months of the Roman Calendar are solar; that is, they are accounted according to the march of the sun. Twelve in number, these months are October, November, December, January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September. November, April, June, and September are composed of thirty days; while the other months are thirty-one days except February whose days are twenty-eight days, and twenty-nine days once each four years; that is on the leap years. A year in the Roman Calendar comprises 365 1/4 days. The new year begins with the first of October, which is correspondent to the sun’s passing the nineteenth degree of the Libra. However, I have mentioned this brief discussion of the Roman Calendar because its months have been mentioned in narrations. More details are cited in Bihar al-Anwar. http://alhassanain.org/english/?com=book&id=928# , April:Eating cool vegetables such as Chicory and Portulaca and cucumber (with flower on its head ) and Armenian cucumber and Cotoneaster and wet fruits, and the consumption of Tursus and meat of six months and seven months to one year old lamb , and one-year-old goat meat and domestic chickens and See-see partridge and Francolinus and Cow's milk and fresh fish are very necessary and beneficial.
