26) His Supplication for his Neighbours and Friends

(26) وَ كَانَ مِنْ دُعَائِهِ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ لِجِيرَانِهِ وَ أَوْلِيَائِهِ إِذَا ذَكَرَهُمْ

His Supplication for his Neighbours and Friends when he Mentioned them

1. اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ ،

وَ تَوَلَّنِي فِي جِيرَانِي وَ مَوَالِيَّ

الْعَارِفِينَ بِحَقِّنَا ،

وَ الْمُنَابِذِينَ لِأَعْدَائِنَا بِأَفْضَلِ وَلَايَتِكَ .

2. وَ وَفِّقْهُمْ لِإِقَامَةِ سُنَّتِكَ ،

وَ الْأَخْذِ بِمَحَاسِنِ أَدَبِكَ

فِي إِرْفَاقِ ضَعِيفِهِمْ ،

وَ سَدِّ خَلَّتِهِمْ ، وَ عِيَادَةِ مَرِيضِهِمْ ،

وَ هِدَايَةِ مُسْتَرْشِدِهِمْ ،

وَ مُنَاصَحَةِ مُسْتَشِيرِهِمْ ،

وَ تَعَهُّدِ قَادِمِهِمْ ،

وَ كِتْمَانِ أَسْرَارِهِمْ ، وَ سَتْرِ عَوْرَاتِهِمْ ،

وَ نُصْرَةِ مَظْلُومِهِمْ ،

وَ حُسْنِ مُوَاسَاتِهِمْ بِالْمَاعُونِ ،

وَ الْعَوْدِ عَلَيْهِمْ بِالْجِدَةِ وَ الْإِفْضَالِ ،

وَ إِعْطَاءِ مَا يَجِبُ لَهُمْ قَبْلَ السُّؤَالِ

3. وَ اجْعَلْنِي اللَّهُمَّ أَجْزِي بِالْإِحْسَانِ مُسِيئَهُمْ ،

وَ أُعْرِضُ بِالتَّجَاوُزِ عَنْ ظَالِمِهِمْ ،

وَ أَسْتَعْمِلُ حُسْنَ الظَّنِّ فِي كَافَّتِهِمْ ،

وَ أَتَوَلَّى بِالْبِرِّ عَامَّتَهُمْ ،

وَ أَغُضُّ بَصَرِي عَنْهُمْ عِفَّةً ،

وَ أُلِينُ جَانِبِي لَهُمْ تَوَاضُعاً ،

وَ أَرِقُّ عَلَى أَهْلِ الْبَلَاءِ مِنْهُمْ رَحْمَةً ،

وَ أُسِرُّ لَهُمْ بِالْغَيْبِ مَوَدَّةً ،

وَ أُحِبُّ بَقَاءَ النِّعْمَةِ عِنْدَهُمْ نُصْحاً ،

وَ أُوجِبُ لَهُمْ مَا أُوجِبُ لِحَامَّتِي ،

وَ أَرْعَى لَهُمْ مَا أَرْعَى لِخَاصَّتِي .

4. اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ ،

وَ ارْزُقْنِي مِثْلَ ذَلِكَ مِنْهُمْ ،

وَ اجْعَلْ لِي أَوْفَى الْحُظُوظِ فِيمَا عِنْدَهُمْ ،

وَ زِدْهُمْ بَصِيرَةً فِي حَقِّي ،

وَ مَعْرِفَةً بِفَضْلِي

حَتَّى يَسْعَدُوا بِي وَ أَسْعَدَ بِهِمْ ،

آمِينَ رَبَّ الْعَالَمِينَ .

1- O God, bless Muhammad and his Household
and attend to me with Thy best attending
in my neighbours and friends
who recognize our right1
and war against our enemies!

2- Give [my neighbours and friends] success in
performing Thy prescriptions
and taking on the beauties of Thy courtesy through
acting gently with their weak,
remedying their lacks, visiting their sick,
guiding their seeker of right guidance,
giving good counsel to their seeker of advice,
attending to the one among them who returns from travel,
hiding their secrets, covering over their shameful things,
helping their wronged,
sharing kindly with them in goods,
turning toward them with wealth and bestowal of bounty,
and giving what is due to them before they ask!

3- Let me, O God, repay their evildoer
with good-doing,
turn away from their wrongdoer with forbearance.
have a good opinion of every one of them,
attend to all of them with devotion,
lower my eyes before them in continence,
make mild my side toward them
in humility,
be tender toward the afflicted among them
in mercy,
make them happy in absence through affection,
love that they continue to receive favour
through good will,
grant them what I grant my next of kin,
and observe for them
what I observe for my special friends!

4- O God,
bless Muhammad and his Household,
provide me the like of that from them,
appoint for me the fullest share of what is with them,
increase them in insight toward my right
and knowledge of my excellence
so that they will be fortunate through me and I fortunate through them!
Amen, Lord of the worlds!
