The Du'a is not an exclusively Shi'a dua, however, as none of its content is controversial among Shi'a and Sunni schools of thought. According to Allama Majlesi , Kumayl ibn Ziyad , a confidante of Ali ibn Abi Talib had attended an assembly in the Mosque at Basra which was addressed by Imam Ali in the course of which the night of the 15th of Sha'aban a month was mentioned.
When the assembly at the Mosque had dispersed, Kumayl called at the house where Ali was staying, and requested him to acquaint him with Prophet Khidhr's supplication. Ali asked Kumayl to sit down, record and memorise the du'a which he dictated to Kumayl. Ali then advised Kumayl ibn Ziyad to recite this du'a on the eve of i.
O' Kumayl! Considered one of the famous supplications, that of Khidr, Ali choose to teach this du'a to Kumayl as his disciple. The Du'a al-Kumayl is specifically recited for "protecting against the evil of enemies, for opening the gate of one's daily bread and for the forgiveness of sins. Composed by Khidr and passed down through Ali to Kumayl and beyond, the Du'a al-Kumayl has proven its value in the Islamic faith.
Sheikh Tusi names this prayer "Du'a al-Khadir" and narrates that Kumayl ibn Ziyad saw Imam 'Ali narrate this prayer while he was in sujood prostration. You can see the complete English text of Du'a Kumayl here and also here via video with English subtitle. A Du'a, or supplication, is largely an appeal to God on behalf of oneself or another. This appeal, or invocation may be one calling for blessings or evil.
This personal prayer differs from the alternative liturgical prayer of salat. Muslims practice salat, a fixed vocal prayer, regularly for the five prayers of the day. In contrast, a du'a, or mental prayer, is a private, inward prayer often of meditation, fikr. A du'a may address God in any circumstance to which one may be afflicted.
Environmental conditions and how to pray, adab, have been suggested to Muslims praying intimately with God through Du'a. These suggested "rules" are intended to guarantee the efficacy of a du'a, enhancing the legal purity of the gesture.
Widely considered a request for one's own or a community's well being, a du'a serves as a direct spiritual connection with God. The outcome that God suffices, will always produce a greater benefit to all, rather than to that of the individual.
The interpretation of one's personal interaction with God through du'a presents several differences. A distinction is often made, however, between fixed predetermination, kada, suspended predetermination and universal determinism. Belief in fixed predetermination suggests that a prayer cannot change God's will, while he may grant prayers implored of Him. In contrast, suspended or conditional predetermination states that while God predetermines all creation's fate, the deity may grant prayers based upon a conditional decree.
Lastly, the view of universal determinism claims that the granting of a prayer is a direct result of terrestrial dispositions in accordance with celestial causes, thus through the laws of the macrocosm.
The heartfelt attempt to rationalize du'a suggests the importance of supplication with God to the Islamic faith.
Through the negation of personal desires and attributes, a Muslim may strengthen ones relationship with God through the guidance and imitation of a trained companion of God. The practice of teaching and guiding Muslims in faith has been carried down for multiple generations. For it is the duty of all possessing the knowledge to pass it on, thus supplications were recorded for annual public occasions and inward prayer alike. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

English Translation of Dua Kumail
O Allah, verily I ask You with the asking of a submissive, abased and lowly man to show me forbearance, to have mercy on me. My God and my Lord! Have I any but You from whom to ask removal of my affliction and regard for my affairs! My God and my Protector! You put into effect through me a decree in which I followed the caprice of my own soul. So, in what was put into effect through me in that situation, I transgressed some of Your statutes. My Lord, have mercy upon the weakness of my body, the thinness of my skin and the frailty of my bones.
