What is the significance of Namaaz-e-Jaffar E Tayyar? How is it to be recited? And is there a specific time of the year it has been recommended to recite.



The prophet of Islam (pbuh) gave this salat as a gift of love to Jafar al Tayyar (brother of Imam Ali (as)) saying this:

I am giving you something that if you perform it everyday it would better than all those things that are present in the world. And if you perform it once in two days the Almighty will forgive the sins of both these days and if you perform it every Friday or every month or every year the Almighty will forgive all the sins committed in between.
