The present paper has the same organization as the treaties Ikhtiyārāt al-Ayyam of the late Āqā Jamāl al-Din Khānsārī, in which the issue of the auspicious and/or inauspicious times are considered from the perspectives of the Quran and hadiths. With the help of various Quranic exegeses, the riter tackles the issue in detail; also, with evidence from the hadiths related from the Infalliables, he stresses on accepting the totality of the case. However, he tries to clear the ground so as to reject some later superstitions created around the theme. Noteworthy is his remarks concerning the role of saying prayer and paying alms in making Inauspicious removed and invalid. Finally, the case of auspicious and inauspicious of heavenly bodies is considered. With references to hadiths, he rejects the practice of those who anticipate things on astrological bases.
